No. Environmentally friendly.

Quoting Jambo4:

For clarifications.. "greenest" as in least experience? wink mini

Quoting AdellesMom:

Nope, I can't say it for certain. But, Obama is one of the greenest Presidents we've had! ;)



Quoting Jambo4:

Can you say for certain that isn't going to happen?  How would we know?  Just use note cards if you can't think quick enough on your feet.. that's my solution.

Quoting AdellesMom:

Yes. They're modern day note cards. I don't understand why that's so hard for some to understand.





You're right. They can be programmed at a moment's notice. However, that's not likely to happen.

All politicians lie, and most politicians have claimed to have some kind of religious background.

Quoting Heatherlox:

obama did the same thing in 08  they all do..... except i'm leaning toward believing Romney MAY actually do what he says since he does have a religious background and wants to do the right thing.  I know a few mormons and they are the most real people who stand by what they say.  (i am NOT mormon nor do i know who i'm voting for yet... im an "undecided" :D  





Quoting pvtjokerus:

Not true!  He has done plenty.  He has kept unemployment up. He has weakened us in the Internationally arena. He has hurt the middle class.  He and Reid has failed us by not giving us a budget for 3 1/2 years. He has helped lower our credit rating.  He and his administration helped get a U.S. Ambo killed.  And he has helped racism grow in this country.


Quoting gsprofval:


Wait, obama has had 4 years and done nothing so far. Talk about deflection.....now obama says we have plans....but nothing material to offer.


Quoting LucyMom08:


 Romney is extremely skilled at deflection...he's all about 'what I'm gonna do' but not too great on the specifics...

I guess we'll have to disagree... He has spent more years as a businessman than holding an office.

Did you read the latest scuttlebutt about Romney may have had notes?  I don't believe it, but it made me think of our exchange.

Quoting AdellesMom:

Yes. They're modern day note cards. I don't understand why that's so hard for some to understand.

You're right. They can be programmed at a moment's notice. However, that's not likely to happen.


Quoting Jambo4:

Teleprompters are fine in a debate?  wow...

teleprompters can be programed at a moments notice... to me that would strike me as cheating to get words fed to a candidate.

Quoting AdellesMom:

My comment is relevant. The use of TelePrompTers is fine in a debate and outside of a debate. Like I said, they're modern day note cards.



Quoting Jambo4:

Teleprompters in the debate.. keep relevant with your comment.

Quoting AdellesMom:

Your opinion is skewed and biased too. You know that Romney uses TelePrompTers too, don't you? There isn't anything wrong with it either. TelePrompTers are modern day note cards.





No, Romney was being a jerk. He went for the jugular and made personal insults--Obama refrained from doing so. So, Obama was seen as the "weakling" last night. Obama was being a gentleman. Obama could "jump off" if he tried.






Quoting Jambo4:

Oh it was so freaking obvious!  It took him 5 minutes to get a coherent thought gathered!  Everyone complained about how painfully slow his responses were (now we see that Romney took the initiative and jumped in because he was quick and had the words at his fingertips... Obama wasn't being a gentleman.. he couldn't jump in if he tried)

Quoting AdellesMom:

Only in your skewed and biased opinion.







Quoting jcrew6:

Quoting AdellesMom:






Romney showed he DIDN'T need one tonight. Meanwhile, Obama? Not so much.

Thank you!  

Quoting Billiejeens:

You exhibit an extreme amount of patience in my opinion.

Quoting Jambo4:

I can't hit a home run with every comment. wink mini (although you'll never find a post where I call Obama a rude name)

Quoting AdellesMom:

Pot meet kettle.

It was just an observation that others and I made about Romney. You and your peers insulted Obama.


Quoting Jambo4:

When the comment consists of no substance and just insults the candidate as an asshat... yeah.. that is poor debate skills.  (I can't remember your original comment containing the insult so keep that in mind.. but there have been a couple with the same insult and nothing more)  Those are what I am referring to.  

Quoting AdellesMom:

No, it doesn't.

A person that's able to communicate effectively can communicate with people in all walk of life.



Quoting Jambo4:  it shows poor debate skills...
Quoting SweetLuci:

 Learning to speak street slang is broadening a person's horizons? sidesplittinglaughter



Quoting AdellesMom:

No. It's a word. It's a slang term.

You obviously need to broaden your horizons.



Quoting Lisa1273:

Quoting AdellesMom:  Romney.. asshat

Tried to look up asshat in the dictionary? Not in my dictionary.
