I completely agree with you! The requirements for President need to be more stringent. I don't think any person is perfect. The current administration has done a terrible job with fiscal matters and it shows!
Truthfully I am still dumbfounded that such an unqualified person with no experience of any substance became President. It is astonishing how easily people are swayed by what is cool.
If you're white and you don't vote for this biracial man, then something is seriously wrong with you.
What does race have to do with it. Why does it have to come down to that. People vote for who they want not because of the color of their skin but because he will do the right thing.
The presidency is not about black, white, yellow, or green...if you are voting based on color of skin then you should be looking closely at whether or not you fall within the "racist" category that the media labels people on the right in.
You're both right, of course. I shouldn't have fallen into that trap based on someone else's comment, and race has nothing to do with my support of President Obama. Sharing the same race should not be a reason for voting. I am not racist in any form
Innocent people have been dieing since the first war. Who started this war? Oh but wait that was George W. Bush. Who is trying to pull out the troops. Barrack Obama.
The American voters started this war. I personally will NOT vote to continue it. My vote is for Jill Stein. Green economy. 25 million jobs, Medicare for all, end wars, stop foreclosures, financial and political reform, fair trade vs. free trade, etc.
I think what he was saying was it's not worth borrowing money from china to fund big bird. Since his character is quite popular and profitable, they can raise the money privately without asking taxpayers to borrow it from china.
PBS is sponsored by American people and donations not money from China Landmark. Apparently you dont watch it.
PBS funding by the government amounts to 100th of 1% of the budget. People who can't afford cable TV, the elderly and history buffs or even those of us looking for culture tune into PBS. Leave PBS alone!
A portion of there funding is from tax revenue, which is borrowed 60 cents on every dollar. The largest foreign creditor of that borrowed revenue is China. Since it is such a small insignificant amount they won't miss it. The govt cant afford it.
Would you rather not fund Big Bird (or Mr. Roger's Neighborhood) with Chinese dollars or not fund the Muslim Brotherhood?
I don't think we should be funding either. The role of Gov't is to fund those services which are essential and can't be done by the private sector. neither of those qualify.
Oh but I bet Mitt wouldnt get rid of Sister Wives because thats what mormon's do.
To my kowledge that show doesn't receive any funding from taxpayer dollars, but I could be wrong.
LandmerkWealth - these people just don't get it and I am not sure if they ever will. Hopefully there are more of us who understand what is happening to our Country under Obama and we can rally together and vote him out in November.
Conservative Lady what is it that we are supposed to get. That Mitt Romney is a biggot, a scoundral, sent all of his jobs over seas because he only had to pay some kid 10 cents a day. That he has no appreciation for women and their rights.
Romney has not sent any jobs overseas, and even if he did that would be a result of our ridiculous cost of labor thanks to the gov't. He has never made a bigoted comment or anything anti-women. Try arguging policy and not personal attacks.
It is good to read a comment on one of these forums that is made on the basis of facts rather than emotion. Thank you for listing these reasons to avoid a Romney-Ryan debacle!
And what is a 'victim'? It's someone who's been placed in an unwanted circumstance by no fault of their own and need to be rescued! Are the 47% of the population on welfare willing participants then?
You are SO right!
Romney was not saying that China funds PBS he was stating that we are borrowing money from China to fund our Government and it's not worth it to continue to borrow from foriegn countries to pay for things that are not an absolute necessity.
Cheryl, where is the proof that Romney is bipolar. I have never heard this. If he is it is a very serious situation. I have a bipolar member of my family. You would not want such a person as commander in chief. Do you have proof, or is this a rumor?
I think she was jokingly referring to his constant flip flopping on issues :)
If you don't vote you lose your right to complain.
Obamacare was Romneycare first. I hate when people blame something that was in fact Mitt Romneys idea to begin with. Oil is a product of which the price is made from the seller. Just like any other product sold.
If you vote for an independent this year, you're throwing your vote away and giving the election to Romney--another Bush! Please don't do it! Start a grassroots effort for a third party AFTER this election. It will take 4 years of work.
I don't think i'll be voting this year, but i think voting for Romney or Obama is wasting your vote.
SportsBetter...If you DON'T vote, you are giving the election away, which is actually a type of passive vote. Accept responsibility.
Jaye, I beg to differ. No matter who you vote for, if you are exercising you free right as a legal citizen to vote, no vote is a throw away. It actually makes the election "fair" and supports our Constitution.
What I said was, if you DON'T vote, that is a passive form of voting. Since it is not actually voting FOR someone, the candidate who benefits from it may not be your preference after the election is over. Better to choose and vote.
JayeWisdom, YOU don't know that. It might be the year that an Independent wins.
Because of the primary system, where electoral votes are committed to certain candidates, a third party candidate cannot win if he has not won any electoral votes. If he got 1 million popular votes, I do not think he has any dedicated electoral votes
Gary Johnson has not even promoted himself. Let's get real you might as well vote for Roseanne Barr who is also on the ballet
Yes he has but the other two candidates and the faction governing who gets what time on TV has suppressed him. OPEN YOUR EYES.
I wish there was a third person, I have never heard of Gary Johbsdon he is not really serious
Well I already voted and I dont care who you want in office. No one is going to bring Romney in after all the crap he has talked. 47% dont count in his book, get rid of a perfectly good tv station, yada yada yada. You will all see you are not enoug
I agree with you LadyG. Pay no mind, as if you would, to people telling you to get real. They are the ones who aren't sure themselves. They are the outgrowth of the two party problem. Vote your heart, love.
So you would join the traitors among American business who are ruining the U.S. economy by sending jobs away. You apparently don't consider it unethical to exploit poor Chinese workers to avoid paying decent compensation to U.S. workers.
I've read your profile, so it's easy to understand your true motivation (besides the traitorous action of exploiting poor Chinese workers to avoid paying U.S. workers a living wage.
So Apple is a traitor? Almost all of their IPhones are made their...for $130 a month. I bet you own one.
"Address it" how? With protectionist measures that will hurt everyone's economy?
In my view, the situation is slowly "addressing" itself; the rapid rise of middle classes in Asia and Latin America in recent years is a very good thing indeed.
No, S. Leretseh, I don't own any Apple product, and never will. YES, Apple is a traitor! My computer is a Dell, made in Texas.
"I don't own any Apple product, and never will"
I love Apple!
Jaye, you are a special person. I am not. What else can I say.
Doc Snow, Asia middle class is the result of a US umbilical cord
Just to start - average monthly earnings in China is $730. I won't even bother with the rest. Check your facts please.
As a U.S. patriot, an Army brat, the son of a dad buried in a veterans cemetery, someone who was drafted for Vietnam, I will tell you first hand, patriotism isn't off shoring U.S. jobs or hiding $$ in offshore accounts. Some have lost their way.
Your Dell might be assembled in Texas, but it's parts are most likely made all over the world =\
Buying a products with some foreign components is not the same as hiding money in offshore accounts to avoid state and federal taxes. We live in a Global economy. There will almost always be a foreign connection.
People who call the president or the Democratic Party "socialist" or "communist" do not understand the true meaning of those terms. I suggest you do some research. All of your reasoning is wrong.
I dont understand how you people think the president is responsible for unemployment. Busnesses went under because owners made bad business decisions. Its like gasoline it is a product who's price is decided by the seller. OMG people seriously.
Socialism is thrown around like garbage on a truck. The biggest socialistic program is the military. They are housed, paid, clothed, fed, receive free medical care and if they last long enough receive a federal pension. Labels stink!
It's people who name call and make uneducated statements like this who vote unfortunately. If you can't truly define socialism and communism and understand them - don't throw them around. good grief...
And was "Obamo" an error, or just snide?
We want our country to be free to choose abortion, being gay, womens rights, making people pay for healthcare so I dont to. Not some billionare that lives as mormon who's beliefs is having multiple wives are okay.
Author Cheryl, I believe that Obama is responsible for most of the unemployment. Most people with money to invest, which is where the jobs start, will not do so until he is out of office. Many lost their jobs within a month after he was elected.
Hi JayeWilson I kniw very well what a communist and a socialist is and if you wait a while and Obama gets back in si will yoyu
A communist lives in a country where most likely Romney has a vested interest for cheap labor at the expense of U.S. jobs. I explained earlier what real socialism looks like and again, Romney wants to increase their budget. Hello...
