Seriously?

Quoting NewYorkMommy103:

He apologized about his people breaking into the US ambassador compound they burn our flag all the time and disrespect our country many of times, but don't let US disrespect their land!




Quoting Clairwil:



Quoting NewYorkMommy103:


Quoting Cafe Steph:

Do YOU believe the US should have apologized for Americans disrespecting the Koran and other such incidents?

No because we never get a apology when people in other country are

burning our flags and blowing up our cities. Where is our apology?

(source)

In Yemen's capital of Sanaa, hundreds of protesters chanting "death

to America" and "death to Israel" stormed the U.S. Embassy compound and

burned the American flag on Thursday.





Yemen's president, Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, quickly apologized to the

U.S. and vowed to track down the culprits, just as Libya's president

did.

Do you really believe there is no one better than Romney or Obama? We make the best choices we can with the options we are given. We could vote third party, but odds are they won't have a shot.

Quoting LucyMom08:

We get the government we ask for...we shouldn't have to 'put up or shut up', that completely defeats the purpose of having a democracy...



Quoting motherslove82:

I would love to see our ineffective government replaced, but we work with what we've got, which isn't much either way.





Quoting LucyMom08:

I hope the entire ineffective body of Congress is replaced, then...







Quoting motherslove82:

Having a list of how's that both parties will never agree to is also useless. That's why he said he would work with congress.









Quoting LucyMom08:

All of that is just pretty words and promises without any 'hows' to back it up...











Quoting motherslove82:

So they don't need a plan.

Romney/Ryan gave a plan. They also left flexibility to work with both parties to accomplish their goals. I already typed it out, so here it is again.

Romney's goals have been stated. Decrease taxes on the middle class, don't cut the military budget, don't tax the hell out of small businesses (no one should have to pay nearly half of their income in taxes), close loopholes for the wealthy to increase revenue, create more jobs to increase revenue. 

Work together with both sides to decide exactly how some things will come about. That is something that we can probably all agree Obama has failed at.

So you are ok with a man who has held a job for four years and still has no idea what he is doing? Would that work at your job?

Quoting LucyMom08:

To me, it's more important that Romney/Ryan are NOT saying anything...my life the last 4 years has improved exponentially...













Quoting motherslove82:

Giggling, shaking his head, interupting, making comments like "am I going to get to respond to this balogna?", not making a single contribution about what they plan to do better if people trust them with another 4 years.

Answer my question. What did he say that convinced you that the next four years with the same leaders will be better than the last four?

Quoting LucyMom08:

How was he a douche?















Quoting motherslove82:

Quoting _Kissy_:

Joe wins the debate. Only FOX and Drudge could possibly claim otherwise.

I guarantee if more people spoke up and started voting 3rd party, we'd be able to pick better options...we are being presented puppets because America is a giant corporation. People are entirely too apathetic, so we are being handed the government we are asking for...we shouldn't have to put up with being given options...

Maybe. The problem is that voting 3rd party gives votes to the person you want the least. I don't know what the solution is. I know they keep people divided over stuff that doesn't really matter.

Because either Romney or Obama is going to win. If you use your vote for a third party candidate, you are giving an advantage to the other candidate.
