The good Mr Romney has been saying that "The world wants to see new American leadership".

Well....if by "world" he means "Pakistan".....

www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-ca…

....and I think that's probably down to Obama giving the greenlight to the operation that saw US Special Forces conduct a cross-border raid into Pakistan which resulted in a very dead Bin Laden. They're still kinda cranky about that.

Posted for no reason other than that it's really, really funny.

Yeah... We really don't need Romney in. I have no idea what people see in him....

Sure, Obama hasn't done a terrible lot, but with a constipated congress, how could he get anything done? o.o

Considering that for the first time in U.S election history we have U.N poll monitors trying to get into Polling places to watch the election, I very much agree with Mit that the world indeed is watching this election closely.

Oh, and just since you did bring it up.

Barack HUSSEIN Obama, lest we forget he does have a middle name, told the SEALS to get bin laden, they brought back his corpse.

The SEALS asked for more backup at our embassy in Libia, Barack HUSSEIN Obama's administration took away protection.

Just a little food for thought.

have you forgotten another man who happened to have the name of Hussien, who was busy building up WMDs (for non military people, this means weapons of mass destruction) in the desert? I sure haven't. contrary to what some people will try to tell you, your name indeed does say alot about you, mostly where you're from and his say volumes.

So all I can say is this. When the shit hits the fan, and it is going to, don't come crying to me, I voted for Mit.

I'm surrounded by idiots.

If you're a Christian, you tend to give your child a Christian name.

If you're Jewish, you tend to give your child a Jewish name.

If you're Muslim, you tend to give your child a Muslim name.

Now you tell me what the name "Barack Hussein Obama" sounds like it comes from. I'll give you a hint, it's not either of the first two examples I gave.

ok, let me put it very blunt since trying to coax people into actually thinking is going no where.

He has a muslim name because he is a muslim, and as we've seen 90% of the mulsim world wants to see America burn to the ground and see all Americans be damned to eternal suffering in hell because they believe it's what their god wants.

So exactly why one would elect a muslim as president of america when Muslims in general wants us dead is beyond me.

Why are we worried about what everyone else wants? I didn't think other nations could elect a president for the US. I say leave it to the voters.

I am sure that when Romney said "The World" he was speaking metaphorically.

I would like to know what Obama has actually done in the office other than create ObamaCare and send troups overseas on a "Kill Osama" raid that was already planned out through water-boarding, conducted by George W Bush. Water-boarding got the result, but Obama said that he didn't condone water-boarding, until he got the "kill".

I hate the product of my victory, but I love it because it gave me victory.

I'm just getting tired of the media being muzzled. Benghazi, anyone? Then there's the fact that Obama's Race for the Top program is closing schools at least twice as fast as No Child Left Behind. Let's not forget his various unconstitutional acts [link] . His planned tax hikes are too high and too broad [link] . Coupled with ObamaCare, we can kiss the middle class goodbye.

Oh, BTW, when McCain was running against Obama, he stated in an interview on The View (daytime talk show) that they knew where Bin Laden was. Obama waited 3 years to act on that intel!

Your last paragraph is the same point I made above. Obama was bitching about waterboarding and how we shouldn't use the intel provided about it, but when he heard news that he might not make it another term due to his random acts of bullshit, he changed his mind.

I think we should give Romney the position. At least he wont promise something and not work on it. Obama said "I will fix the economy". Where? Mars?

Plus there's all the crap he's pulled in secret. A lot of it was stuff people bitched about when Bush did it and put it out in the open. Executive order 42, for example, gives the government the authority to go through any and all US national communications for "national security" and doesn't have any of the restrictions of the Homeland Security Act. Then there's his muzzling of the media in general. He's had over 10 assassination attempts, and we've only had one make the headlines. He's put us a hell of a lot further in debt with China especially as well as the other countries we're borrowing from. And on top of that, he's continued to lower the value of the dollar by increasing money production instead of decreasing money production. The more that's made, the less it's worth.

One of the things that really annoys me is that he sat on the Bin Laden location intel for THREE DAMN YEARS before actually okaying the mission that supposedly took him out. McCain announced that they had the intel when he was running the last time. If you find his interview on The View, you'll see. Plus, if the really killed the bastard, they would have brought his body back and put it on display for the world to see. They would have probably video taped the mission with a helmet cam and aired that, too.

What I want to know is what the Secret Service prostitution scandal was used to cover up.

That's what I'm talking about.

Now, I have heard that Romney was going to cut taxes on the upper class. That may actually have been a good thing. Upper class would be able to create more jobs and hire more people if they had the money to deal with. But, on the bad side, I also heard he was going to raise taxes on the middle class. That would not be such a good thing. The middle class is being hit hard enough with the job market at the level it is now.

I still think change was in order. Hell, even if it was to elect the damn Third Party candidate.

I think Romney would certainly make promises that he has no intention to keep. Romney has completely flipped his views on healthcare to get the Republican vote. As governor of Massachusetts, he signed in universal healthcare in the state (called "Romneycare." Sound familiar?) It requires almost every citizen of Mass. to have health insurance, or else face a tax penalty (again, sound familiar). This was his crowning achievement as governor, and now he's set on repealing an almost identical healthcare system because he'll get more Republican votes. He just wants to be president, no matter what side he has to be on. He might be on your side today, but tomorrow he could easily flip to a more popular side. I'm not saying Obama's a great president, but at least he'll have the same (albeit flawed) opinions even when they fall out of favor.

That's almost like admitting water is wet. Economists said that any road to recovery, based on previous economic disasters in US history would take 10 years, minimum. No president can serve more than eight. So, WHATEVER happens will be inherited by whoever is elected in 2016. It'll be a "clean slate". The only thing Obama could EVER do was point us in the right direction and say "see that tiny speck way in the distance? That's the Promised Land. Go there." That's what he promised, and that's what he's tried to do. There is the HIGHLY unrealistic expectation that ANYONE as president could have done better. It's simply not true. Hell, back in the Depression, FDR didn't turn things around until his THIRD term. So I think it important we all take a quick dose of historical perspective, as opposed to "hysterical" perspective.

@dinshino: Dude, there's no "muzzle" on the media. There's just nothing to report now. The truth HAS been outed: it was a concerted terrorist attack. There was misinformation due to incompetence, sure. But a conspiracy to sequester the press? Ludicrous. In case you missed it, there was this giant and highly ridiculous presidential election going on. The Obama Administration figured that since the media already called them on their shit and the truth was out there anyway, there was no need to go around saying "a-yup, they're right, we fucked up." The President said, as he did repeatedly in the debates and around, that when the investigation is complete, all of the details will be shared, and the perpetrators will be brought to justice (when possible). As for the military support, Geraldo explained that on Fox and Friends: the Marine Corps do not just sit around in full battle gear waiting for the signal to go. There was a time lag, and by the time they were mobilized, it was already over. But the idea that our military was pulled OUT of the action when things got serious is an out and out lie.

Not dissagreeing with you. But think of your particular example like this. What are the odds of even a senator knowing what would be a very tightly kept secret of the top-brass of the armed forces and possibly the president and his closest advisors?

And IF it was known, why didnīt Bush act on it? It would have been a closing feather in his cap the size of a Blue Whale. No way would he have let an oportunity like that slip.

That is why i find McKainīs statement highly unlikely, even by political standards.

Could honestly care less who the rest of the world would prefer. Not their choice really. In all honesty though there's little to no difference between Romney's proposed foreign policy and Obama's. Hell with exclusion to the tone and the foreign policy dance, Obama isn't really any different than Bush (some could say worse). I don't think within the next four years other countries will see the difference.
