“I think the PH constitution forces them to spend more on education than the military. They haven't spent much money on their Military in years. If they had, they'd actually have assets to distribute supplies instead of relying on the U.S. and allies for assistance.
China is spending much much more on their military than the Philippines in comparison.”
“To those who say he never visited the kid. I'm sure he'll make it a point to visit the funeral.”

“For crying out loud he recently found out he was the father He didn't know he had a child!”

“He only learned of the child's existance a couple months ago, and was preparing to visit him. When he found out his son had been taken to the hospital, he dropped everything to go to his side. I bet AP would be a great dad if he was given more of a chance than this.”

“He never really had a chance to visit the kid. He just found out that he had this child recently. The mother had thought another man was the father. The child lives in another state and Peterson just started the season. The reports are that Peterson had planned to visit in a few weeks.”
A new ad from the Obama campaign takes aim at Mitt Romney’s performance as governor of Massachusetts, claiming he had “one of the worst economic records in the country.” But the ad overreaches with several of its claims.
The ad states that job creation in Massachusetts “fell” to 47th under Romney. That’s a bit misleading. Massachusetts’ state ranking for job growth went from 50th the year before he took office, to 28th in his final year. It was 47th for the whole of his four-year tenure, but it was improving, not declining, when he left.”
Obama had both houses when he took office. Nice to see him use that to push through Obamacare. I'm sure that won him a lot of points for those of us wanting him to fix the economy.”

“Pres. Obama took office when jobs were being lost at 600,000-700,000/mo. It reached 12% by the time he was able to get the stimulus through which wasn't until the 2nd quarter of 2009 which was with a Democratic Congress & lots of obstruction from the GOP. He was sworn in in January 2009 - let's see maybe if I use caps - and THE STIMULUS DIDN'T GO INTO EFFECT UNTIL THE 2ND QUARTER OF 2009 which every economist (GOP and Dem) says saved our economy from going into a deep depression. Obamacare is more GOP ideas than Dem. Personally I would've favored 1 payer system along with the majority of this country. You are a minority. Get your facts straight.”
“Obama had both houses when he started. Could've done anything he wanted. He focused on healthcare. Dumb idea when Americans wanted him to focus on the economy. It's sad that the best the Democrats can do is blame others.”
