    you sound like a democrat who blames everything on Bush. get over Romney. he didn’t win and he won’t be running again. of course i’m sure that you’re most pleased by the fact that Romney didn’t win, which the way..meant that we got 4 more years of BO. God save America.

    “When she was an attorney working on the Watergate investigation, she was fired by her supervisor for “lying, unethical behavior.” Jerry Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, was a supervisor for 27-year-old Hillary Rodham on the committee. Zeifman said he fired Hillary and refused to give her a recommendation.

    “Because she was a liar,” Zeifman said. “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”

    “good” is a relative and subjective term. Romney would have been a much better president than BO, but there are those here who are hung up on his religion, and will make all sorts of excuses as to why they didn’t support his candidacy, resulting in the current mess we have. well you got your wish and Romney didn’t win, and now America must suffer the consequences. However, i must agree that Romney would be a huge mistake if we hope to defeat Hillary in 2016.

    “I correctly stated early on in the primaries in 2012 that Mitt Romney was the least likely GOP candidate to win in the General Election; I can safely say, that the same thing and know that this time, it is even more true.”

    you are certainly correct for 2016. Hillary will be the next president, unless the MSM gives up on supporting her sorry excuse for a candidacy based on her “experience,” “qualifications,” and support for women’s rights. the only women’s right she has ever really supported is one with the last name of Clinton.

    “Obama motivated people, while Republican challenger Mitt Romney did not.”

    BO’s operatives stole that election, but the GOP et al still could care less. i remember hearing on election day that in Ohio voters for Romney were reporting that their votes were being counted for BO, but the GOP appeared to have no concern.

    remember as election day approached, Romney was getting huge turnouts at his rallies, but BO was not? so what happened to those supposedly unmotivated Romney voters on election day?

    recall the sudden appearance of all these uncounted ballots that suddenly tipped outcomes away from the GOP in various other races?

    it’s not who turns out to vote that wins elections, but who counts the votes that seems to be key.

    “It’s the phantom voters - literal absentee voters because they don’t exist - and votes from the grave that count. And then how about the millions of dem voters who reside inside the voting machines? It’s like entire cities and counties live in those things.”

    Absolutely! the dems don’t need to worry about the eligible voter, they’ve got enough ephemeral voters to win every election from now on, plus all the 47% + illegals that will be able to vote in future elections.

    Dems retain control of Senate will be the MSM story the night after this November’s election. and then all the stories on the MSM will return to focusing on how women are being denied equal pay, restrained by an invisible glass ceiling, denied the right to free access to birth control and abortions as they prepare the way for Hillary to ascend to her “deserved” place in the White House as America’s equal rights champion for women come January 2017.

    The Dems’ rallying cry will be: isn’t it time that America had a woman president? and of course that has merit, but why should that woman be Hillary Clinton? when, if she is the best female leader that America has to elect, we are indeed in trouble as a nation.

    “Voter fraud is not easy to pull off unless the “plan” comes down from “high places”.”

    and where do you think the plan for winning 2012 came from???

    of course there was voter fraud in 2012 and lots of it. who counts the votes is absolutely the place to win the election. that’s why in 2012 BO appeared unconcerned about his poor rally turnouts. Romney’s crowds were growing with each passing day as we neared election day.

    the Repubs are too weak to go after voting fraud when it first appears, and dismisses it as some minor glitch as they did with Romney votes going to Obama in Ohio. they are afraid to stand up against the MSM chants of poor loser.

    there have been news reports within the past 9 months or so, about democratic poll workers being prosecuted for voting multiple times for BO.

    your words deserve repeating:

    “Romney was the wrong person for the job. That being said he was better than McCain. The Republican party is a conglomeration of different types of people, about half of the party is conservative a good third is moderate and the rest just want what they think is best for them, many of them liberal. In order to have a Republican president we need ALL the Conservative and a lot of the rest. I think in the last election cycle we got the liberals, the moderates and many of the conservatives but some conservatives were unwilling to hold their noses and go the voting booth. Those few who couldn’t hold their nose helped us get Obama. I hope they are happy, I am not.

    I sincerely hope that eventually Americans come to their senses and vote for conservatives but I don’t expect it. I expect that we will go the way of Europe. That we will marry queers in our churches, that we will kill even more helpless unborn children, that we will venerate murdering Islamic Jihadists as a wonderful peaceful religion, that we will allow law-breaking wetbacks to become citizens and perpetuate the Democrat strangle hold on our government.

    All I can say to those principled people who couldn’t hold their noses is, thanks for helping destroy the country I [loved and] fought for.”

    why has the GOP agreed to a budget funding bill thru Sept 2014? By having the funding expire 6 weeks before the mid-term elections, it will leave the GOP open to a non-stop media assault to force the GOP to agree to whatever terms the Dems propose to keep the gov’t fully funded; otherwise, the economy will take another purported body blow, courtesy of the GOP. the important focus for these elections in 2014 needs to remain on the disaster that is Obamacare, which will be buried in the voting public’s minds with this timetable.

    “Nothing in article about the purpose of the mission being to study global warming?”

    The USCG vessel is not going there to study globull warming. it was a research vessel [a former Russian vessel, i believe] carrying climate change “scientists” to Antarctica to try to assess the impact of AGW on the levels of ice there that got trapped, and was unable to be freed by a Chinese icebreaker that went there earlier. i’m not sure, and wonder, if the Chinese icebreaker is still stuck in that region as well.
