tmann with Halloween fast approaching maybe we can bring forth Reagan's ghost for you. Oh..what did Hitler & Reagan share? Both ruled by the Zodiac. Regan's seer was Joan, well you'll figger it out.

Cliff Cannon

@ kURTje: Slight correction in order. Hitler paid the most attention to "Fredrick the great's" ghost as he hoped for another "miracle of the house of Brandenburg" However,it is true that propaganda minister Gobbels was deeply into astrology and would bring daily reports to his master.


Pres. Reagan like so many millions obviously was into astrology.So what. Did it hurt anything?


Correct me if I am wrong,has man not looked to the heavans for answers as long as he has been on the earth? After all the " 3 Wise men" were reading the stars and that led them to Bethlehem. Personally, I haven't read nor heard many complaints on the results of those 'star gazers' have you?

Knuckledragger, after more than 30 years, we average Americans are still paying the price for Reagan's "trickle down economics." Mitt Romney is the personification of this policy run amok. The only benefits that trickled down were the dollars that found their way into the pockets of multimillionaires like Mitty.

kURTje

CliFF, you don't remember Hitler having a his seer killed? He was Jewish & Adolph was on the threshold of his political victory. (history) Have any spritual background? Are you aware of the 2forces? (If you haven't chosen 1 you still made a choice) Did not King Saul consult with the Witch of Endor....?

Cliff Cannon

@kURTje : I must confess. I do not remember Hitler having a seer.So,obviously,I was wrong to a point in my comment.Perhaps,Hitlers baleful prayers to 'Fredrick the great' attracted historians more than his seer. My apology for inaccuracy.


P.S. I'll bet you'll find Alios Sheckelgruber(sp.) fascinating. He is Hitler's dad,born out of wedlock to a jewish parent. The jewish family totally rejected Alios. Which,no doubt contributed to his becoming a mean cruel,vicious man who felt compelled to change his last name to Hitler. And the rest as they say is history

Does anyone else want to see Romney's 'binder full of women' that he was talking about? :-)

Well after reading though this mess my one question is what has Obama done for this country and what is his plan if he gets elected for 4 more years because honestly, our country cannot survive another 4 years like the 4 we just had. To many are focused on Mitt, yet on the same hand the president they voted for has failed us all on so many levels. It seems like this is a Mitt bashing contest by a few posters, yet Mitt isn't our president. Did everyone honestly expect Obama to turn things around in 4 years, honestly I don't think so. However, he shouldn't of opened his big mouth and promised us all pixie dust and unicorns and this happy world. He himself said that if he didn't turn things around in 4 years that he expected to be voted out of office. So lets do what he said, I mean some of you hang on his every word, correct? I think its time to hand the reigns to someone else more qualified to run a business, which ultimately America is. Obama tried and his supporters can be happy that he invigorated a voting turnout like no other and spoke to the masses, but after its all said and done, isn't that all we got?

Average household income down 8.2% since 2008. Obama took office in January 2009, the median income has fallen 8.2 percent, from $55,198 in January 2009 to $50,678. Positive news.

The next debate is on foreign policy. I want to see Obama lie his way out of this one. He has a horrible foreign policy, bows to muslim leaders and thinks that Americans dying in Libya is not "optimal". What a joke.

Sitting In The ...

My favorite part was when Romney focused on Benghazi and he completely screwed it up and was corrected by the moderator. That some good TV !!!!!

Contango

@ Sitting In The ...:

The Obama Admin. has been messing up on the optics of a TERRORIST ATTACK (there, I wrote it!) in Benghazi for almost six weeks.

They've painted themselves into a corner with the stupid video story.

No comparison to Mr. Romney's flub.

Plus, Mr. Obama needed Ms. Crowley to help bail him out. Two against one.

Our "Clown-in-Chief" went on the Comedy Channel to tell the nation that the deaths were not "optimal"?

Maybe not "optimal" for his re-election campaign?

Why in the H*ll wasn't security beefed up around the world for the anniv. of Sept. 11th?

Sitting In The ...

You say security should of been beefed up for the anniversary of Sept. 11th but what about security under President's Bush term that could of prevented the attacks in the first place?. Furthermore Ms.Crowley agreed with the President because what he said was true see -------> No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. The President stated the events in Libya were a tragedy twenty seconds before he said "not optimal". Did Fox News not cover that portion?. I'll continue watching "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" and you can stick with "Fair & Balanced" Fox News channel.

Contango

@ Sitting In The ...:

No, you watch the "Comedy Channel."

hit the road jack

Obie has turned our troops over to the UN so he can say he isn't starting any wars,yet he's had his fingers in every arguement or fight in middle east since he's taken office. now he wants to turn our rights to own a gun over to the UN,can't wait to see these bozo's come here to try to confinscate them,hell they couldn't do anything to the camel jockeys of Afghanistan or Iraq or even Egypt,what they gonna do to a civilized population like the U.S.

Sitting In The ...

WOW....okay the reason he had his fingers in every fight in the Middle East is because the guy before him ignored the recommendations of the United Nations and started two wars. "President Obama wants to turn our rights to own guns over to the United Nations". How would they do that? Are you saying the United Nations would come to the my house and collect my guns?.

@ rogerthat:

So the problem is: "Reaganomics" and "Bush, Bush, Bush."?

The FACT is: For about five decades, the U.S. has been spending too much and taxing too little.

In order to even BEGIN to make a dent in the federal deficit and debt, the U.S. would need to raise taxes on EVERYONE by 35% and cut spending by an equal percentage.

It's about time that EVERYONE paid their fair share and sacrificed eh?

Contango

"Between 2008 and 2011, federal welfare payments have jumped 32 percent. Food stamps have surged, with 71 percent more spending on the program in 2011 compared with 2008. Health payments, principally Medicaid, have climbed 37 percent."

The only re-election campaign strategy that Mr. Obama has is buying votes with "Cash and Prizes."

FORWARD SOVIET!

New Obama campaign slogan:

"bin Laden is dead and Al-Qaeda is alive in Libya."

Were the deaths of four Americans worth the price of the European oil supplies?

arnmcrmn

To think....4 Americans killed on foreign soil in a terrorist attack and our president makes a less than enthusiastic TV announcement only to hop on a plane to Vegas the next minute to party it up for a campaign fundraiser. Then comes the video.....which if everyone was smart would of kept their mouth shut and found out the facts first before saying a video was to blame. Then he goes on the View and doesn't say a word while those trashy hosts stroke his ego. Shouldn't our president be held more accountable? I think so, America and Americans and the dead deserve better.

betrump

To think....4 Americans killed on foreign soil in a terrorist attack and before anyone knows exactly what happened you and Mittens wanna make it all politics instead of wanting to find out the truth. Sad.

Dr. Information

Actually, I think arncr said just that. Didn't you read what he posted? He said wait and find the truth out before opening up his (Obamas) mouth. The only reason this was made into such a debate topic IS 100% because of our current administration and what they did. Do you think Mitt or the millions of Americans who feel the exact same way would have called foul, if Obama would have met with his staff, got the facts straight, and told them not to say a word until they had all the intel? I think not. Obama dropped the ball and you really do have a funny way of always attacking someone when they speak of the truth.

Contango

@ betrump:

In the Admin., WHEN and by WHOM was the term "terrorist attack" ever used in regards to Benghazi?

The "truth" IS comin' out and it only makes Mr. Obama and his cabal appear increasingly incompetent.

Guess it wasn't "optimal" at the time to tell the "truth." Who’s playing politics with the “truth”?

You do know that we only took military action in Libya for our European allies and their oil supplies right?

BIN LADEN IS DEAD AND AL-QAEDA IS ALIVE IN LIBYA

betrump

Sorry...I guess technically he called it 'a terrorist ACT' and not a 'terrorist attack.' Mea Culpa!

Contango

@ betrump:

Get the transcript Candy.

He referred to "acts of terror".

betrump

Terrorist Act, Act of Terror, whatever. It's the same damn thing. Are you that desperate to win an argument that you wanna split hairs and play semantics? Romney was wrong. You were wrong. Just admit it and move on.

Contango

@ betrump:

In politics and in law, semantics is important. "It depends on what the meaning of the word, "is," is."

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j...

Didn't you learn that in your ‘so-called’ education?

Who cares what Mr. Romney said?

Dr. Information

The "optimal" comment was another sad let down by Obama. For those that think this guy is some great speaker he and Biden sure are gaffe machines. Remember the left crying foul when Palin had target symbols on county's where she needed people to get out and vote? I do, yet just the other day Biden says in a speech that the Republicans have "bullets aimed at you", when talking at a campaign event. Where is the outcry from CNN or MSNBC? I remember Chris M, screaming that Palin should be dropped, but why the crickets from them on Biden? Its sad that even the left cannot see the hypocrisy that exists on how the left and right are treated in the media.

propman

Doen't forget that Obama referred to the dead Ambasador and the other three as "Bumps in the Road".
Those are Americans he is talking about.
If he gets another term he'll run over all the rest of us.

betrump

He did no such thing.

propman

Yes he did.
On CBS 2 weeks after their deaths
