"Obama wants to allow states more latitude in running cash assistance programs, and the Republicans balk. So now the party that heralds states’ rights and local control is against states’ rights and local control?"

The Republican platform is to oppose anything and everything. Anyone who watched these conventions must be impressed with the stark differences between the parties and the candidates. Obama has vision and integrity, Romney does not.

Obama has vision and integrity? His "vision" has increased our national debt by 6 trillion dollars in less than 4 years. His "integrity" is to seal every record about his life and take expensive vacations at taxpayer expense while at the same time telling us that it is tough times and we need to "cut back" and "tighten our belts". His "integrity" was to pass a healthcare bill that the majority of americans did not want or agree with as his first major action after being elected. Do you not think that his first action should have been to get America back to work?

I do not need or want the type of "vision" and "integrity" that he has shown.

Obama does not have vision or integrity and to quote Eastwood:

“President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people.”

Obama would be the first Chicago Politician to have integrity and his vision is Socialist. There have been too many sweetheart deals for one to claim integrity. His vision of the new economy involves taking from those that have and giving to those that don't. He wants an expanded Lower Middle Class, living off the earnings of others, and a depleted Middle and Upper Middle Class. If he believed in his vision, he would take all his savings and earnings and distribute them to the needy. He hasn't done that, but he is trying to force me to do that.

That's because you are one of those that live off the earnings of others.

Interesting bumper sticker seen in town.." Don't forget to take out the trash in November" seems the stench is getting to the common sense.

If he had integrity, he would not have spent millions of dollars to keep transcripts secret, birth certificate and others we do not know about. He probably cannot even spell the word. Of course Republicans and you would too if the robber barons had their hand in your pocket southwestga. We can tell by inference you are on the receiving end. Whether O likes it or not, the fast dish out of Medicaid will come to a screeching halt. Last year the Tea Party was to blame now they have found someone else. When all said and done, if O wins billions of dollars of money will be shifted overseas and more businesses too. You have to seen anything yet because the Democrats are not the makers of money, only the spenders of others money.

DNC focused on a few things, more gov't assistance, finding a way to legalize immigrates, gay marriage, and women. All are important issues, but RNC is focused on the economy and getting this country back in order. They will focus on the most important and then work on the smaller issues. The only problem is getting the economy back in order includes cutting back the freebie programs.

The President's speech last night was by far his BEST EVER. He really rocked the house last night and proved without a shadow of a doubt that he is SUPERIOR to the weak competition. Joe Biden also rocked the house with his message. "Osama Bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive" thanks to our President. They killed all the lies the Republicans tried to spread last week and showed pure dominance over Romney. 69% of America now favors Obama and only 31% favor Romney. Only this area loaded with the republican party is blind to whats really good with our President and what he is doing for our country. The DNC was a huge success and Obama will win in November!!!

You know, I thought it was some brave men that did the killing. Do you really believe any sitting President wouldn't have authorized the raid? Even Jimmy Carter would have given that one a Green Light. Have you ever heard the concept of Stolen Valor? If it had gone bad, The President and Vice President certainly weren't going to be the ones wounded or killed. Plus, where did you get those numbers? Don't match any legitimate pole I have seen presented. For four years he has failed at his job. He made promises he didn't deliver on. Now you can site all the causes you want, fact is he was elected to straighten things out, and if that took working with the other party, than it should have been done. His use of Executive Privilage, questionable appointments, circumventing the process all point to his failure. If he had a civilian leadership job, he wouldn't be there anymore with the results he has demonstrated. There are too many folks that want to work that can't find jobs. It was his job to find them work in a job contributing to the GNP, not government funded additional cost jobs.

Obama talks out of both sides of his mouth and you can't believe either. We do not need a Muslim running our country. You keep waiting by the mailbox to receive everything that you think Obama has promised you and you will be there for a long time and won't receive anything. We need Romney as our president so that this country can recover from the Obama damages and return to the principals on which our great nation was founded.

bubbasmithredneck 1 year, 7 months ago

No way. This country can easily see a clear difference between right and wrong and thats why they favor Barack. The best reason to vote for Obama was the weak and hateful messages sent by the RNC. Nobody wants leadership from people who support such a divisive country.

From what I've seen in the last few years it's the democrats and obummer that has started this blame it on the rich BS.

Democrats appeal to people who don't know math, who don't know history and who apparently have no morals. two of the speakers were proven liars. One wanted the government to buy 10.7 prophylactics per day for her sex life. The main theme was LOOK WHAT WE ARE GIVING TO YOU. Socialism is very ugly and you will be part of the 99 percent with no way out. When socialism evolves into communism people start dying in great numbers. They get rid of nonproductive people. The same people who put them in power are now being reduced. It happens every time and people just don't get it. They think this time it will be different. Enough people in this country know math, history and believe in God to vote the Dems out and start to restore our country.

If you are keeping score on truth telling, Red, I know you'll be excited to tally up Paul Ayn Ryand prevarications. If the Democrats were smart they'd nickname him LYING RYAN. Personally I prefer Paul Ryand. I can only hope a few of the loudmouthed evangelical deep water Baptists figure out who Ayn Rand is other than Paul Ryand's svengali. They will light up the air waves with that one. It'll be better than the combined reactions of Ted Haggard and John Edwards.

Both political parties are foul potpourri.

"Obama wants to allow states more latitude in running cash assistance programs, and the Republicans balk."

No, the Republicans are balking at the current and future cash assistance programs. No cash assistance programs then no need for more latitude.

Mr_Heatmiser 1 year, 7 months ago

No, squawker, Republicans are more likely balking because the law as written specifically and intentionally forbids what the president is doing.

Sister_Ruby 1 year, 7 months ago

Exactly. This is why I refer to Obama as His Royal Majesty Barack Obama. He thinks he's above the law and so do His Followers.

Any vote for Obama in Georgia is a waste of time. Even during the last election, before anyone realized how incompetent he really was, and all the effette libs were still gushing like schoolgirls, Georgia voted Republican. It will again, esp. now that Barry has shown his true colors.

jglass 1 year, 7 months ago

I do not watch any of the propaganda, just can't stomach it. Nobody keeps their word, etc. I vote republican!!!!!! I don't think we can handle another 4 years of OBAMA!!!

i'm a teacher and i am NOT better off than I was 4 years ago. anyone want to guess who I will vote for? i'll give ya a hint.....it's the opposite of who that idiot BSR is going to vote for!

scooby62 1 year, 7 months ago

How come when I go to renew my license next year,I have to show my Birth Certificate,and Obama has never shown his? I was born in Georgia and don't mind showing my Birth Certificate. What's his problem?

1

Mr_Heatmiser 1 year, 7 months ago

i know you mean well, but seriously...this argument is an embarrassment. Please drop it. His birth certificate was released a long time ago. If you want to see it all it takes is five seconds on google.

There are plenty of real issues to focus on.

tywebb 1 year, 7 months ago

I guess no poor minorities were in attendance at the DNC since they would have been made to show 2 or 3 forms of ID. Freakin' hypocrites. they don't want them to show ID to vote in this country, but you can't come to our party without, at least, 2 forms!

What is really scary are the foolish and gullable people (like BSR) who can not see through the lies and distorted views of Obama and his socialist appointees. By the time they see what happens to this country if he is re-elected, it will be too late.

Sister_Ruby 1 year, 7 months ago

Correction.....by the time they see what happens to this country if He is re-elected.......BSR AND HIS ILK WILL BE THE COMMUNIST BOSSES and the Bourgeoisie will be down in the salt mines........or dead and buried in mass graves. Google Stalin.
