We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

You mean a recession because of the housing collapse? Wanna guess who started Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac?
It is easy to win when the majority of what you say is fiction. The Etch-A-Sketch looked good and sounded good but he continues to flip-flop on issues. He also has NO concrete, detailed ground work for how he plans to achieve any of the bullshit that spews out of his mouth. They are a lot of great articles on the link below from professional, unbiased sources that show what truly transpired last night.
I'm on the left. I consider myself well-educated. I apologize if reading my prose hurts your brain.
Skewed and unreliable due to the fact that only Older White Southerns were questioned for this survey.
Yep. And I feel the same about Romney. I'm willing to give his economic ideas a try. My only real concerns with him revolve around his social agenda.
I do wish he came across as more genuine and trustworthy. He has a couple more debates though to change my thinking there.
I think the point is that you can't fault Americans for placing a greater importance on domestic policy. Just like you can't blame them for placing a greater importance on foreign policy. It's all up to the individual voter and their circumstances IMO.
Usual conservative media bias...
Things I like that Obama has done:
1. End one war and have a solid plan to end the second. That alone is going to help with the budget.
2. Kill bin laden
3. I am for Obamacare. Maybe not all of the details, but I do not believe that the care someone can receive should depend on how much money they make. My view is access to preventive care for all will save us a lot of money in the long run.
4. The economy is growing. Not as fast as anyone would like, but it is growing. After the initial drop in jobs due to events that occurred before Obama took office, he has seen a steady, albeit slow, growth of jobs. If the republicans were willing to work with him on his jobs bill at all, we would probably be seeing even more growth.
5. bail out of auto industry. I am originally from Michigan and am happy that the companies were saved and are turning this around
Those are just a few of the positives, to me.
The attacks were in reaction to an anti-Islamic video. It had nothing to do with Obama or 9/11. In addition, the Obama administration did not try to sweep the situation under the rug. Romney actually looked like an idiot when he called out the Obama administration.
that one made me laugh. the Clinton News Network has always been kind to the elephant.
So no president should ever get any credit for winning a battle or war it should be the troops that did the fighting?
I've been preaching this for some time. There are quite a few scholars on this board that graduated with History degrees and went on to get a masters in Communications, and they somehow have a deeper understanding of the inner workings of our economy than financial advisers, accountants, bankers, etc.
It's the same way with my Facebook friends. All the career students have a firm grasp of what is going on, and everyone else is just ignorant.

We aren't in a recession anymore. We have net job growth. That is better. Can't argue otherwise. You can argue if it's as good as you'd like, but we are better than when he took office.
CNN replacing Fox news as the right wing news source?
We are still in a recession. Once the fed quits lowering rates and instead lets the market determine them, and we stop printing money, our economic growth is mostly artificial.
Its liberals whole quasi Socialist agenda in general. That crap has been tried for a couple hundred years and one thing we have found in every single case is it wont work. The system will collapse because its not financially sustainable in the real world. It always sounds great in the liberal professors class room, but in the real world the economics will never work.
Then why was McCain talking about how we had more to do in Iraq in 2008? That was a big difference then, but now that Obama is wining hints down it's 'oh anyone would have done that.'
And Afghanistan has been harder because we aren't getting much cooperation from Pakistan, where many insurgents are hiding and striking us from. Not much he can do about that.
Obama deserves credit for killing Osama because I happened while he was in office, and gave the order, same as any President. I'm not saying he's the equivalent of the guys who got it done but he deserves some credit.
Obamacare has been predicted to lower the deficit by ~$120 billion over 10 years, in part because it allows for more check ups and preventive health care which will lower health costs put on the gov in the end.
And he deserves credit for saving the auto industry because Romney, the Republican said to let it die. So it was altruistic in the sense he did what was right for American workers. Don't see how you could not give Obama credit on that one...
So you posted a link to a liberal blog site that doesn't blame the actually bombers but the people who made the film? Good god.
We haven't been in a recession since 2009. We may be headed for a 2nd recession and could very well do so if progress isn't made during this sequestration but that remains to be seen.
Romney won, but he shouldn't be president.
I done like either of them,fwiw.
How about these conservative southern men-
“I don’t think he explained himself very well on the economy. I think he was off his game. I was absolutely stunned tonight,” Ed Schultz said.
“Where was Obama tonight?” Chris Matthews asked......... "What was Romney doing? He was winning.”
"It does remind you that the last debate Mitt Romney had was seven months ago and the last debate that Barack Obama had was four years ago,” said Rachel Maddow.
"Obama made a lot of great points tonight. Unfortunately, most of them were for Romney.”- Bill Maher
"He choked. He lost. He may even have lost the election tonight,"- Andrew Sullivan
I can see why it's easy to confuse Maddow for a southern man, though.....
Tomatoes, tomahtoes. QE3 put us on track to dip back down, maybe not as far as we were in 08, but we will more than likely get there soon.
Yeah Obama could have helped that. Promise.
