    Plentycoups: Ok--if 99.9 % of the male population didn't need to serve as there was no draft (still isn't) and no need of one". If that is so, then why question Romney about his lack of service and then turn around and try to explain away or excuse Obama's lack of service??

  • Plenty Coups Nov 5, 7:50 p.m.

    "PlentyCoups: Obama missed Vietnam, yes. He could have volunteered to go in during Desert Storm/Desert Sheild, or some other time period--such as Grenada, Panama, etc. But, did he??? Nope.."

    99.9% of the male population didn't need to serve as there was no draft or neeed of one.

    it's pretty unethical to skirt tax laws and hide money in order to pay less taxes into your own country...especially if you later want to become the leader of that country : beaulahjackson4: First--it is completely legal to have money in off-shore accounts--Harry Reid does, Nancy Peolsi does, Obama does--so does your assertion of hiding money to avoid paying taxes to your own country still hold? Banks that operate in the Cayman islands include Bank of America, Wachovia, RBC, etc. If you have money in anyone of these banks. you probalby have money in the Caymans--are you hiding it to avoid paying taxes??

    Romney's unethical dealings in business?" and this liberal lie isbased upon what facts? We know what Bill did. Now, prove what you are accusing-paultaylorsr100"

    For one, the United Auto Workers plan to file a formal complaint against Mitt Romney for allegedly failing to disclose his profits from the auto bailout.

    Two, not just me but others agree that, it's pretty unethical to skirt tax laws and hide money in order to pay less taxes into your own country...especially if you later want to become the leader of that country that you are unwilling to pay your fair share into. If you are just some rich guy taking advantage of the system then fine, but now you want to be president? Deplorable.

    The list does go on. Forgiving for so many other issues (like lying about a war that killed thousands of American men & women for $$) but not someone being unfaithful.

    To bad the President has to rely on a more popular president than he to garner votes. Speaks volume of his own record doesn't it. If his record wasn't so weak, maybe he wouldn't have to rely on another President to get him votes.

    "Clinton is a draft dodger-"

    Yes, but so was Romney. Sorry.

    "-Bush pulled his tour as a fighter pilot (whether or not he went to Vietnam is irrelevant--he served his time)."

    The Texas national guard isn't quite the same thing as serving in Vietnam but yes, at least he did serve in some capacity. It is relevant if his father (or associates) pulled strings so that he didn't have to go to Vietnam.

    " Romney didn't serve but then again neither did Obama"

    How can you lump Obama in here when he was a little kid for most of Vietnam and was merely 14 when the war ended? Apples to oranges. Romney dodged the draft plain and simple. Obama was far too young.

  • beaulahjackson4 Nov 5, 6:13 p.m.

    A few things Obama's done:

    Obama’s success rate in winning congressional votes on issues was an unprecedented 96.7% for his first year in office. http://n.pr/i3d7cY

    Within days after taking office, he signed an Executive Order ordering an audit of government contracts, and combating waste and abuse. http://1.usa.gov/dUvbu5

    His first day he froze White House salaries. http://on.msnbc.com/ewJUIx

    He completed the massive TARP financial and banking rescue plan, and recovered virtually all of its costs.

    He oversaw the creation of more jobs in 2010 alone than Bush did in eight years. http://bit.ly/hrrnjY

    Bailout of General Motors that saved at least 1.4 million jobs, and put pressure on the company to change its practices, resulting in GM returning to its place as the top car company in the world.

    Fraud Enforcement and Recovery Act giving the federal government more tools to investigate and prosecute fraud in every corner of the financial system.

    josephlawrence43""

    What exactly does President Clinton's affair w/ML (who also participated in that affair) have to do with his ability to speak on our economy and his experience in politics? I guess you're okay with W. Bush lying to us all about going after Osama bin Laden, and then we ended up in Iraq taking Sadam Hussein out (who was put into power & armed by a republican administration)? I guess you're also okay with Romney's unethical dealings in business? Clinton is not a knight in shining armor to be sure, but failures of Obama? I can think of far more failures of our former presidential administration than the current one.
    .

  • kidsrn Nov 5, 5:34 p.m.

    Well, "it depends on what the definition of is, is". Ah, remember that line from Clinton during the impeachment hearings? A classic.

    You know, it really amuses me all of the people that Obama has joining him on the campaign trail. Hollywood celebrities, sports figures, etc. REALLY??? Exactly how are these people supposed to connect with the average citizen? You know, the ones that haven't had a pay raise in years, who are struggling to feed their kids, whose college graduate children can't find jobs? '

    Obama----the president who gets further and further away from the American people every day. Great.

  • josephlawrence43 Nov 5, 5:14 p.m.

    For those who lamely attempt to compare Clinton with Bush or Romney--pitiful. Clinton is the subject of the conversation--no one else..He is an adulterer(neither Bush nor Romney have been so labled): He is a perjurer (he lied in the investigation of his relationship with Monical L.) No such charge has been leveled at either Bush or Romney; Clinton is an impeached president--Bush isn't and neither is Romney. Clinton is a draft dodger--Bush pulled his tour as a fighter pilot (whether or not he went to Vietnam is irrelevant--he served his time). Romney didn't serve but then again neither did Obama. But for all the proven, irrefutable facts about Clinton, its as if the leftist/socialists apparently ignore this background and by having Clinton travel across the country propping up Obama as if Clinton was some knight in shining armor that will magically erase all the total failures of Obama.

  • Minarchist Nov 5, 4:56 p.m.

    SO YOU DONT LIKE.....boy was Keynesianism brought up everyday in the 2008 election attacking Obama. Now you;re voting for one? No wonder FOX isnt spewing that word anymore. LOL

    You will wake up one day and realize we cant print money out of thin air to bailout banks and car industries. Like Ryan voted for and Romney supports. KEYNESIANISM. Research something. You are destroying America. It doesnt matter Obama will get four more and no one to blame but the people who thought Romney could win. Enjoy the next four!

  • so you dont like my opinion ok Nov 5, 4:36 p.m.

    Too late for me, already voted for Romney, quit scare mongering.. We all know it is time for a change.. He had 4 years to change things that he himself said he would change before the 4 years, he didn't, good idea, let's move forward with Romney. Oh a before you say, well it isn't 4 years yet, please that is only 2 months away, like he can work a miracle in 2 months.. Only God can work miracles and I don't think He is very pleased with obamas stance on same sex marriage and abortion do you? Take your conscience with you to the voting booth if you are a Christian. Have a good evening all. Happy voting...

  • charmcclainlovesdogs2 Nov 5, 4:30 p.m.

    NO MATTER WHAT YOU SAY HERE OR THERE, I AM STILL VOTING FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA. I AM A DEMOCRAT AND STICKING WITH THAT. THE RIGHT CHOICE.

  • fishietoo Nov 5, 4:29 p.m.

    For full disclosure -I'm an Independent leaning toward Obama. Nevertheless, I do want to point out that the US lost 4.9 million jobs during Obama's first year in office (Jan '09 - Jan '10). Since that time (Feb '10 to present), the US has added about 4.3 million jobs. I'd say he did/is doing something right. Could the recovery be better? Absolutely. Is Romney the man to do it? Probably not (in my opinion).

  • so you dont like my opinion ok Nov 5, 4:27 p.m.

    Calm down Grand I posted the info about Clinton because someone said "Clinton was rich long before he was President....." - GU and retro said Not true. retroconsultant
    Retro was right, he wasn't rich before he became President. The topic after all was about Bill Clinton helping Obama so you can't say I went off on a tangent...

  • charmcclainlovesdogs2 Nov 5, 4:25 p.m.

    I know what I am looking for in a President and Romney is that, period.

    so you dont like

    Voting for Romney would be a major mistake. Voting for President Obama would be the right choice.

  • charmcclainlovesdogs2 Nov 5, 4:25 p.m.

    but it is okay for Obama to point fingers for 8 years?

    retroconsultant

    I support OUR president and have never pointed any finger at him like YOU and many others. By the way, my vote is on President Obama. He will be there 4 more year. How about that?

    They don't seem to be able to imagine what would happen to them if they suddenly became sick, injured and lost their job.....

    Then they had better vote for President Obama and not Romney. Then they will see his dire tragedy upon all of us.

    'Bill Clinton is one of the richest former Presidents' of US. However, initially he received only $35,000 per year as Governor of Arkansas. But Bill has earned a lot in later years. His Presidential pension is $201,000 per year and he accepted an advance of $12 million for his memoir, "My Life". Bill has raked in huge sums of money by speaking to groups and corporations. It is estimated that he earned around $41 million as a speaker. His standard fee is $150,000. It is also speculated that between 2003 and 2007 the former President received an amount of $15 million paid by Ron Burkle in exchange for his 'advice' on potential investments and opportunities for investors. http://www.bornrich.com/bill-clinton.html"

    Crump-"Barry lied about Libya and fast and furious as well"

    Despite your best attempt to say he "lied" about these programs, I have yet to see any proof. Sure Fast and Furious was a mistake but I haven't seen any "lies" by Obama. The same program went on during the Bush administration. Same with Libya, hysterical accusations of a coverup lack proof. Hindsight is 20/20 and blaming Obama for not being sure what or who was entirely behind the assault is more of a "lie" than to unjustly accuse him of one without any factual proof.

    You havent been listening to Chris Matthews. He has made a racial issue out of this entire campaign as have other leftist, they always bring up race first,it isnt working this time.

    I see they have some of us convinced. If Mitt was so great, why did he not run for re-election in Mass.

    Why didnt Barry stay a senator? If he is so great why isnt he touting his record. Because he is a failure and we all see it.

    Please do not tell me it was the Olympics?

    he saved the Olmpics, Barry couldnt save our Embassy, or Border Agent Brian Terry or the ECONOMY!

    He was the worst governor.
