  1. I have a way for illustrating the clear mainstream media bias in this country. The debacle in Libya is, in my opinion, one of the most important events going on the world today. Yet, when you see people arguing about, look at how many people can't even spell Libya correctly. Now, maybe I'm wrong here but if you are actually reading about this a little bit and not just going off political talking points, you would have seen the word Libya enough to spell it correctly.

    Also funny, on the day we were seeing the hearing regarding Libya, Fox News was the only website that had it listed as their main story. All the alleged major news sources, cnn, msnbc, abc, nbc, they had Jerry Sandusky as their main story. Not his sentencing. That was a day or two prior. The story of Jerry Sandusky and his wife claiming that he is innocent.

  2. Nice job reciting the Obama talking points. However, Romney has explained his tax plans so many times that I am actually getting sick of hearing it. Lower rates, bring down deductions. Which deductions? You get to choose. You get a lump sum or bucket that you can use as you see fit. In the end, most people will pay about he same, especially the wealthy. He's said he'd phase out more deductions for the wealthy. How does that translate to a tax cut for the wealthy to you? Because Obama says so? He lies to you about everything, including this. Again, you clearly know nothing about taxes so I'll tell you the other side of this. Lowering the rates will help small businesses that do not file their taxes under the corporate rates. This creates jobs. Creating jobs also broadens the tax base so that we don't end up having 47% of americans paying zero income tax.

    And by the way, what part of this don't you understand? You can take everything from the wealthy, not 45% of their income, 100% of their income, and it does not make a dent in our debt. If you did that, it would only pay to run the government for 90 days. Obama keeps pushing this because it sounds good to lower income voters. It places the blame for all our problems on wealthy people. It feeds on people's natural jealousy toward people that have more than they do. It gets him votes. The problem, it doesn't work!!!!! and that's been proven.

    As for taking over for GW and his "mess". Obama campaigned in 2007 and made it very clear that he knew what he was getting into. He knew he wasn't stepping into an ideal situation but he promised to fix it. I don't expect miracles. But I do expect progress. Our only progress is downward, despite his attempts to manipulate unemployment numbers but removing people from the workforce. Every economic indicator we look shows horrendous numbers.

  3. It really doesn't matter how he phrased it. If you look at the full transcript of his speech, he was talking about 9/11/01, not 9/11/12. He also talked in that speech about how were are tolerant of all religions, which was eluding to the video that he claimed was responsible for all this.

  4. And during one of obama's 2 minute rants, 6 people were dropping out of the workforce. And how many other companies were packing up to move to another country because we have the highest corporate tax rates in the world? And by the way, educate yourself on Bain Capital before you speak. It's great to spout off talking points but the fact of the matter is that Bain has saved for more jobs than it's killed. That is FACT! Do the research. They are net job creators. This president, he hasn't created a single job in almost 4 years of office.
