The only leftist freaks disappointed in Hussein are the ones ticked off that he hasn’t done MORE to America.
FU Hussein Heads - F U !
All of your list can be reduced to one word:
4 years ago we’d not thought an American president would accuse police officers of ‘acting stupidly’ and holding a ‘beer summit’ afterwards.
If you think the first 4 were bad.... they are NOTHING compared to the next four.
And Romney won’t make a damned bit of difference.
We need 435 new members of Congress in 2014 or the game is over.
I voted for McCain and Sarah.
Many here feel that it would have been worse under them.
Or that by not voting for weak conservatives the GOP would transform into the 3rd party they are too lazy to create.
How’s that working out?
We need 435 new members of Congress in 2014 or the game is over.
***There is no way in HE double cuesticks that such a thing will happen. Game is already over. Now what do we do?
Did I miss on the list that he was a member of the socialist New Party?
4 years ago we would never have dreamed a single Supreme Court Chief Justice would totally destroy the relationship of the individual with the Federal government.
What's more depressing is that all we have is the flimsy reed that is Mitt Romney to act as an antidote to the toxin of Obama. I have little doubt that Romney will defeat Obama, especially after the debacle of the Supreme Court quasi-endorsement of Obamacare now threatening to further polarize Americans, with the majority being against it. However, even with Romney as president, we still need a majority in the senate (quite likely) as well as holding control of the House (also very likely). Fine. Then we have to count on self-serving old pols such as Boehner and McConnell to have enough spine to actually push through a bill to repeal Obamacare, while the national media castigates them 24/7 for doing so.
Let me put it this way: I'll believe that when I've seen it happen. We can make it happen. First, by voting on November 6th then by making our wishes known to the leaders in the House and senate - as often as necessary. We cannot tolerate a 'bait-and-switch' where Romney and the GOP leadership tell us what we want to hear now, then find numerous excuses for not repealing Obamacare next session. Our anger must be made known now, not later.
Anybody who acts surprised now was either woefully uninformed or lying to themselves.
This is the Chicago political mob come to Wash DC.
Aren’t 4 of the last 5 Illinois governors in prison?
The difference with the FedGov is the POTUS gets to appoint all the sheriffs.
It is downright shocking! However, I, for one, will not give up. Yes, I will vote for Mitt Romney because religion is not supposed to be the litmus test to run for President. We have that freedom and I want to keep it. He is a moral man, husband to one wife, financially responsibile and hard working. He does love United States of America. Is he perfect, no. Do I agree with him on everything, no. He is a natural born American and, while not perfect, will definitely be absolutely better than 4 more years of what is President now. No way would I vote 3rd party and hand over our country to the person in the White House now. Only by changing the President and getting as many like minded people in Congress can we hope to undo any damage this present administration has done.
What you said!
“He does love United States of America. Is he perfect, no.”
Ha! Based on his patriotic use of earmarks? Mitt loves mitt.
” Do I agree with him on everything, no.”
Do I agree with him on 90%? No. 80%? No. 70%? No. 60? No. 50%? No. 40%? No.
Is he the Dewey of our age? Yes.
I like your very comprehensive list. It’s downright scary what is going to happen if Obama gets a second term.
But he almost certainly will if Conservatives don’t stop whining against our own candidate and bickering among ourselves. Romney wasn’t my ideal either.
If you object to a Moderate, the result will
be a Communist/Marxist. If you object to
a Mormon, the result is most likely a closet Muslim. If you object to the American, the result will be a man who may have been born on American soil but was brought with ideals far from anything we believe in. The time is past for complaining. We need start helping the only chance we have.
Well said. It was easy on the rhetoric and heavy on the ‘to do’ list. Very good.
4 years ago we thought the Russian Revolution - and the Chinese - were historical aberrations which occurred in the face of massive social upheaval, could only be ushered in with overwhelming violence, and all but destroyed their nations for decades afterward, but that latterly Marxism was a dead issue after proving it lays waste nations.
Who could guess that the United States - guided by a certifiable sociopath largely without political experience of any kind, who was never eligible to be president in the first place, and without a peep of protest from congress - would follow in the footsteps of Lenin and Mao decades after their outworn philosophies had proven so utterly destructive and, in consequence, been abandoned in The Soviet Union and The People’s Republic?
The fellow who said that those who refuse to learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them... he was prescient.
And, by the way, so was George Orwell.
