Now Hussein will blame Republicans for embarrassing him on his precious much-needed debate day.

Must have actually taken his job seriously. Obviously for the hussein administration, that is a dangerous thing to do.

The whole policy has fallen apart and 0bama has created a much more dangerous world.

People often have wondered in the past, what would happen to the world without America, in truly less than 4 years we see a glimpse of what could be.

Romney is going to need to turn this all around in the first 6 months. From economy to foreign policy to instituting an immigration plan. Strike plan...make that a policy and program.

If Romney wins, the only thing standing between him and saving the world...just might be God's own plan. Revelations many say doesn't contain America...but I always remind them that prophecy often refers to the Eagle. And now I am meditating on how God often chooses the most unlikely of people to triumph his plans.

But there are only 30 or 40 Al-Queda left the administration tells us! The administration said that terrorism has been solved by Obama’s new tone!

The reporter must be wrong.

The debate tonight is going to be incredible. What concerns me is the prep Ryan is doing and if Romney/Ryan are even getting accurate intel from the Administration.

I would be highly suspect of any “gaffes” Ryan makes as the intel being fed the Romney/Ryan tema may very likely be incomplete or even less than accurate.

If the regime told such a huge lie to the American public, little lies to Romney/Ryan to make look like buffoons is most likely.

If Romney is elected he will not only have AQ and the economy to battle, but the dems and their media will unleash a hailstorm of attacks and place so many obstructions along the way...it will not be pretty. Millions of homeless will suddenly arise from the woodwork, global warming will become catastrophic....

Wikipedia: City of Sanaa - Yemen: At an altitude of 2,300 metres (7,500 ft), it is also one of the highest capital cities in the world.

More altitude sickness.

The first sentence of this poorly written article says the chief was killed at the US embassy. Then it says he was on his way to work and it becomes clear he was head of security for the embassy. These “journalists” are such doofuses.

Unless we can throw that RAT bastard commie pig muzzzlim 0dumb0 out of the WH this coming Nov 6, we will continue to enable the islamic religion & terrorists even more so. 0dumbo declared less than a month ago, that the "future does not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam"! 0dumb0 is a muzlim. He would never stand in the way of muzlim agenda & ideology & murderous ways. The RAT bastard is engrained in Islam as the most favored religion and inevitable future. Fortunately the true Word of God says otherwise, and 0dumb0 & his henchmen & his fellow Islamic terrorists will roast for eternity in the Lake of Fire.

“It seems to me that Al Qeada might want Obama gone. They are sure greasing the skids.”

Hussein was their best friend until he allowed Big Media to credit him with insisting that Jerusalem be added back into his campaign.

There were some really ticked off anti-Semitic Hussein Heads at the DNC convention that night — imagine how the terrorists felt.

Don’t forget that it was NOT Zer0 who called islam the “Religion of Peace” or thought it was a good idea to GIVE these animals “democracy.”
Unfortunately, civilization will suffer so long as our, and all other governments, continue to recognize islam ONLY as a religion.

I would be surprised if Ryan even gets to speak tonight.

They will tell Biden to shut up because he is reading all the answers fed to him at one time,without him coming up for air.

REv.8:13
And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!

Rev. 12:14
And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

Isaiah 40:29-31 ESV
He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

Deuteronomy 28:49, KJV
“The LORD shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand;”

Habakkuk 1:8, KJV
“Their horses also are swifter than the leopards, and are more fierce than the evening wolves: and their horsemen shall spread themselves, and their horsemen shall come from far; they shall fly as the eagle that hasteth to eat.”

I agree 100%, remember the unrelenting MSM bs about the economy tanking, etc almost from the moment that Bush 2 took office until it finally came true. The same ones screaming recession when employment was at 6% are happy with 7.8% now and willing to fudge numbers to get it that low. They will start on Romney while he is taking the oath of office.

Debate will be judged based on public information. No one will know if Ryan is unaware of secret information that we don't know either. I would hope that few people in the spook community, who do have access to withheld information, would support Obama in any case.

My personal belief is that when the Lord returns there will be no Muslims, as Mecca will have been turned into green glass, the Mahdi's well will have been destroyed, and the Dome of the Rock will be gone, the Jews having rebuilt the Temple in its place. This I expect will occur after they push somebody one step too far (my money is on the ChiComs)
