BENRUSH, yes we have courts to prove fraud but it is usually to late by then. The damage is done. Over-leveraging, credit default swaps etc. The banking system is huge and it is world wide. Give me a break, courts I am still laughing at that.
Everybody on here is a bunch of cry babies. Let Romney handle it, he is the one that wants to be president, he is going to face tougher situations than this. Maybe he will grow some and be up to the challenge next time.
No need to use crude references.
Obama needed the extra time and was given extra time because he needs affirmative action.
People I know who voted for him -- voted based not on their support of his agenda in 2008 but solely on "affirmative action' -- it would be cool to have the first black president. Substance and leadership were NOT considered. Obama had to have extra time and his supporter, Candy, tipped the game for him and ran to his aid when he flopped. That's okay.....shows that he can't succeed on his own. (Fewer golf games, less time at pick up games, less private concerts, and no showing up on TV comedy programs like The View proclaiming " I am eye candy" with that time spent on national security issues would probably helped him.)
Romney did get cheated out of 'equal time' but most polls showing he prevailed over Obama anyway. Just shows that a well informed person doesn't need to ramble on to express himself. Nor, does a well informed person need to have people tipping the scales on his behalf to prevail. Romney when faced with TWO people he was debating that evening on Libya stood his ground --- reflecting confidence, knowledge, and the ability to stand against all odds. Obama mean while had to beg for outside help in the debate to a TV reporter to help him against Romney. When losing...Obama pulled out all stops and even sucked in Candy to bail him out on Libya.

CBO can’t score this. They will have to come up with a number eventually. Dangerous game playing it this way since no one knows the future.

Our tax plan is going to be what our riches lobbyist says its going to be. Like every other president.

It is way more complicated than that. GM was trying to get private credit for the bankruptcy, but at the time remember banks were asking for money also and couldn’t provide it. They were turned down. The unions ruined GM no doubt about it but the stupid CEO’s didn’t help either.

I got a good laugh at this one. She did so well she lost.

Because he would change. Look what happened to TLC when it got into private hands. Now it has honey boo boo. Seriously, with all that is wrong in the world and he picks on PBS. Google Mister Rogers when he spoke to congress and watch that. I like a lot of the policies of Republicans but sometimes they shoot themselves in the foot. Ouch!

It is just plain strange that people put the blame on just the government. When things went south in 2008 most banks and corporations were just plain crying to get government money. Everyone cries about welfare but guess what, we give more to corporations then to welfare. Why? Because they give donations. Hmm. I think people of The Blaze need to complain about this more. But the media controls how america thinks and this will never be a priority. It will always be Republicans vs. Democrats but they are the same in a broader view.
it won't always be repub vs dems unless repub is taken over by tea. This is the final RINO cycle.

Corporate earnings are pretty good overall. QE3 will bring more money in the market. We won’t have a meltdown, don’t know why you think that. US is doing great compared to Europe. US banks doing well. Don’t listen to news, news tends to be always negative. There is a lot of positive but it doesn’t sell.

The Republicans are missing a golden opportunity. Instead of bashing, bashing and more bashing of President Obama they should keep drilling on the issues. Build them self up,not bring Obama down. This is why I think Romney will not do well. Yes taxes are to high but please explain why by bringing them down for the wealthy will help the economy. This needs to be hammered and hammered by Romney; he can’t only gloss over it. It is a shame I wish we as Americans focused more on the positive but our media won’t let us.

Chris Rock’s idea: They should have an empty chair on stage the whole DNC. If anyone ask who is in the chair, they reply: Osama Bin Laden.
Love you Clint, but hey you argued with a chair and lost!
Wish we had a legitimate 3rd party or at least have no lobbyist until then nothing will change.

Well this history will shock you then. Learn the history of U.S. Rep. Justin Smith Morrill and George Franklin Edmunds. One of the reasons the Republican party was founded was to stop Mormonism. Hmm, kind of ironic. BTW I don’t really care just thought you would like to know.
It is true. It was started to defeat the "twin relics of barbarism" which were said to be polygamy and slavery. CNN only explained half of it. It is an irony, but a welcome one.

Hey, BRACSIM, Ford’s CEO wanted 9 billion more dollars if they needed it and he approved of the Chrysler and GM bailout. You bet your behind they would have taken more money if they needed it. No different than the banks which people here don’t complain about. Anyway 90,000 Ford’s were purchased under the cash for clunkers program, more than GM. Sorry that is more government money. No doubt about it, unions killed the U.S. car industry but sick of people cherry picking facts.

It seems that Ford has a better P.R. machine than G.M.. Ford took $5.9 billion in government loans in 2009. Hmm better not buy a Ford either. Google it.
ford paid back the money, on the second bailout ford dod not took a single penny, GM and Chrysler did, so far Ford is the only american company standing on it own and we all should support ford, at least i do, I always buy american, every time I can, the rice crap dont work with me.
If American Motors was still in business I would buy one of theirs loved the AMC cars.

It is their business, they can do what they want. If you don’t like, don’t buy – free market
Actually, what they are doing is committing a subversive kind of collusion, which is illegal. They bought fisheries and boats and signed people to contracts to fish for them, and they deliberately shut them down under the guise of "supporting sustainable fishing" when really what they are doing is trying to monopolize the fishing industry. they are doing this to eliminate their completion, amongst other things.

Too bad, love his music, can’t agree of the way he does stuff but I wouldn’t ban him – that is just stupid.
I bet this order came from very very high up the line of command.
Saying the military has to be apolitical and then making a decision that is political shows a very high degree of ignorance of what politics are all about.
And yes, it is quite scary of what is happening in the military.
But this is not only happening in the military but in every agency of government.
We conservatives have been naive or even ignorant about politics. We live our lives, raise our children, celebrate success, deal with our failures. Just living our lives. We don't even think like the left. That is why they were able to penetrate every level of our society. They have worked at destroying our way of life behind the scenes.
Because conservatives are tolerant, open minded, accepting and generous, we did not think that they would present a real danger to our society. We have a motto, live and let live.
I will say it: We are better people. The very fact that we were not able to see the danger these people represent is evidence of that.
We do not sit behind the scenes and plot and work away at destroying our system of government. We did not even know that there are people like that, because their thinking is very foreign to us. And it is because of Obama that we woke up.
Now that we are awake and speak out against them, they get even more aggressive and call us haters. Just for speaking out against their plans for our lives.
I'll take an American with crap in his pants over a Kenyan chewing a dog burger any day.
Know what? That sounds better than what's in the White House .. .just sayin' ...
At least it came from where it was supposed to come from, as opposed to the crap coming from the illegal-alien, man-child's mouth for 3 1/2 years.
@Gonzo- Amen, brother. At least theres absolutely no doubt
where Uncle Ted was born!
I still think our treasonous, illegitimate, usurper-in-chief obozo the chimp was born
elsewhere. Hawaii will give anyone a birth certificate.
GONZO, You got that right. I often wonder what these complainers of his draft dodging and technique did when they where Ted's age at the time? People do stupid things in their youth, but at least Ted actually did 'grow up' unlike some of these whiners.
what i WON'T do is take the word of someone who takes an 'interview' in 'High Times' as gospel:
In 2006, an interviewer from the British newspaper The Independent questioned Nugent about a 1977 interview in High Times magazine in which Nugent allegedly detailed elaborate steps taken to avoid the Vietnam draft. In the interview Nugent says, contrary to the story in High Times, that "I had a 1Y [student deferment]. I enrolled at Oakland Community College.". However, the Selective Service classification for student deferment is actually 2-S, and medical deferment is 1-Y. A copy of Nugent's Selective Service record shows that he had at separate times both a 1-Y medical deferment and 2-S student deferment"
