Quoting gsprofval:

Do you ever look at the lies obama tells? Just start with the Libyan attack on the embassy and the lives lost there.

Yes, intel new in advance the attack was planned.

Yes, Amb. Stevens even asked for extra security, but obummer said NO!

Yes, the whole world knew it was a terrorist attack.

Obummer---lie,lie,lie--it was because of a movie? Really? Literally, the whole world reported it as a terrorist attack, but obummer still couldn't tell the truth and how he basically got those people killed.


Quoting chazmom01:

How many opps statements has he made? The guys changes his mind alot during this campaign. Does not stand by what he has said all threw his campaign. Oh that did not go over well so I will tell them somthing differt or I did not mean it that way .

Quoting gsprofval:

This was a relatively minor statement by Mitt Romney, but at least he is willing to admit he made a mistake and own up to it

unlike obama with the Libya attack:

 

 

 How many minor statments has Mitt the twitt made now ?How many has he taken back ?

So Mitt is "Chameleon Man"...? I see. And what worse name should we call Obama, who claims to be a post-racial, bipartisan uniter - but has turned out to be a race-baiting partisan divider?

Obama demonstrates in his 2007 speech, the totality of which was released this week - that he is a two faced man who praises his pastor Rev. Jeremiah Wright, his mentor for over 20 years, who surely heard Wright talk about (racist) Critical Race Theory-tinged Black Liberation Theology, before disavowing him and throwing him under the bus just months later. The speech also shows him to race-bait, and to accuse the federal government for not caring about black people, when he knew exactly what was going on with Katrina. FEMA had never dealt with a disaster of the scope and complexity of Katrina, and were overwhelmed. And it did not help that the mayor did not carry out his disaster plan, and the governor delayed asking for federal help. Just weeks earllier, Sen. Obama had voted NO on the Katrina Recovery Act, which would waive that Stafford Act "10%" local subsidy, as well as revise the Stafford Act to remove the red tape eg, regulations that required buildings to be rebuilt exactly as before, regardless of updated building codes. Fortunately, the Senate passed the bill, over Obama's objection, by about a 80/20 percent margin. And the law was changed so the president could you his/her discretion to call FEMA into a disaster area, whether or not the governor invites the feds in.

So which is worse: to correct yourself, or to portray yourself to the American people for 6 years as something you are not? A lot of people voted for Obama on what he said he was - and it was all a big lie.  And now the information that should have come out to the American people in 2008 is coming in 2012.  Get ready for more...

Quoting GardenerArtist:

the problem is Mitt thinks he can be Chameleon Man and Superman, everything to everybody, and will say whatever to get elected, cuz ya know.... it's his turn.  He says one thing, says he stands behind it, the next day he denies it, and stands behind it.  wash. rinse, repeat.  There is NO consistency to him whatsover.  A liar is a liar. His are recorded for posterity.

I am a Iraq veteran with disability, so some of my income is not taxable. I am one of those 47%. I think Romney is a heartless douche. He can try and back pedal, but there is no context in which I could find his words even forgivable. I put my life on line for my Country. What sacrifices has he ever made? I really cannot believe people actually think he deserves to be called President. The man has no honor.

Hey Lisa,

Good job!  Some updates for your chart:

- US credit rating now AA-   (was downgraded twice)

- Gas much higher - $4.85 in Calif, not sure the rest of the country.

- $16T+ national debt

- No budget for three years in a row.

- That's not even considering foreign policy disasters in all over the Middle East especially Libya.

Doesn't this prove Romney was right, in saying he didn't need to worry about your vote, because you had already decided to vote for Obama?  It seems to me, your comment backs up what he said.

Oh, and please tell us what honor Obama has.  What is his track record for honor he shows for the United States?  

I am also of the 47%, but my vote is for Romney, because at least there is hope with him.  I see no hope with Obama.

Did I say anything about the President or who was voting for?

Romney said a whole lot more than not having to worry about trying to get my vote.

Not sure that your post is making much sense, but, you said Romney didn't deserve to be president, so it sounds very much as though you are voting for his opponent, Obama.  What words do you find of Romney's that are so unforgivable?  You state that you are a vet from the Iraq war, and I say thank you for your service.  My son is a life time Marine, and has had several tours for his country, and endorses Romney every chance he gets.  If you would rather have Obama as your leader, that's your choice.  But both my son and I, would feel better knowing that Romney would be the Commander in Chief.  He at least has the balls to go face to face with other foreign leaders.

Separation of church and state is for the protection of BOTH church and state.
Leading with hate and intolerance only leads to MORE hate and intolerance.
