I was not talking about TARP. BTW the Republicans voted against TARP.
I'm ta;king borrowing money to spend as a stimulus.
Mitt Rommney in December of 2008 wrote an Op-Ed encouraging Republicans to pass a stimulus action borrowing hundreds of billions of dollars.
The exact same thing you are having a fit about.
Maybe if you could provide a link or an article of some type to back this up, I'd be interested to read the entire context.

If the knife has a pistol grip, it's an Assault Weapon.

Eric Holder should send some of these illegally across the Mexican border, too. They could call it Quick & Curious. Or Sharp & Serrated. Or Cut To The Quick.

Or they could name it after Holder himself: Knot 2 Sharp.

<quoted text>Good. Keep the Russians skeptical. Obama is a genius. Meanwhile Mitt running his mouth about who is the head of Britain's MI-6.
British press hammers Romney after he reveals MI6 meeting
In a scathing review of Romney’s time in London, Tom McCarthy of The Guardian opined that many in Great Britain were angered by Romney’s admission, as there has always been a great deal of mystery surrounding the famed intelligence agency.
“I can only say that I appreciated the insights and perspectives of the leaders of the government here and opposition here as well as the head of MI6 as we discussed Syria and the hope for a more peaceful future for that country,” Romney said during a press conference Thursday.
When asked for comment, MI6 did not specifically acknowledge a meeting between Romney and Sawyers, but rather stated,“Sir John Sawers meets many people, but we don’t give a running commentary on any of these private meetings.”
MI6 has gained fame through the fictional depiction of the agency in James Bond movies, but, as McCarthy points out, there was no public acknowledgement of the UK’s version of the CIA until 1994.
“For our American readership, this isn’t like bragging you just met David Petraeus. The British take on the national secret intelligence service comes with an extra-heavy dollop of the whole secret thing,” McCarthy wrote.

What running commentary did Romney give having just met with the guy? He supposedly meets "many people". Are all of these people sworn to secrecy they even met with the guy?

Who ISN'T talking about Syria and hoping for a good outcome?

As head of the Salt Lake Olympics Mitt Romney became the first Olympic executive to approve a series of commemorative pins in his likeness.(They're in the news right now because they were made in China)
What I said is exactly what the other poster said about Krauthammer.

Obama bought our Olympic athletes' uniforms from China. C'est la vie.

Makes Romney's pins pale in comparison.

LONDON—Even Mitt Romney is not immune from the traffic gridlock crippling city streets here ahead of Friday's Opening Ceremony of the Summer Olympics.

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee was forced to abandon his motorcade and walk to his only public meeting of the day, a sit-down with Irish Taoiseach Enda Kenny. Along the way, he shook hands with random people who stopped to greet the American politician on the street.

At the Irish Embassy, reporters were ushered into the room just as Romney was responding to an inaudible question from Kenny. " ... just being governor of Massachusetts, which is almost a part of Ireland," Romney was heard saying, in midsentence.

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/not-even-m...

Poor Mitt, he looks like a crazy person who put on a suit and escaped from an insane asylum, nobody wants to shake his hand.

'Massachusetts, which is almost a part of Ireland'

Oh lord, here we go again. Somebody put a muzzle on this guy.

To build something means you have to take risks and work your tail off in the hope that it will pay off.

Yes, Obama worked hard getting an education and worked as a lawyer for a few years because of his education.

But who paid for his education? No one knows and he won't tell.

He didn't "build" anything from the ground up.

Unlike Dave's and my amateurism efforts when running Morris' campaign, Obama's career was skillfully orchestrated by the likes of George Soros and the liberal media which constructed his persona into a greater than life caricature. We were made to think he was closer to a god than a human being. I recall it was only a few weeks after he was sworn in as President of the United States, that the left was calling for a repeal of the 22nd Amendment so he could serve in the office in perpetuity.
Now nearly two years into his Presidency he reminds me of a Morris who reads well. His curriculum vitae is more expunged than padded – at least George Bush's and Al Gore's mediocre grades from Yale were published in the Atlantic magazine for all to see. When not reading prepared text, he speaks haltingly and appears to be overwhelmed with the amount of information thrown his way. As a surgeon friend of mine, who by nature is fair minded and reluctant to deliver harsh criticism and has witnessed the antics of presidents since the 1940's says,“As far as I can remember, he is the ultimate in affirmative action and the most unprepared man for the job.”
As the Obama Presidency falters, the hackneyed comments regarding race and prejudice are heard once again. Yet his failures have nothing to do with race and everything to do with the lack of experience and personal ability, leadership style, and the promotion of an ultra liberal political agenda which is out of touch with the country. His ascendancy to President of the United States is the result of an invented personality by wealthy power brokers, but in the process his personal triumph has made the political landscape much more difficult for minorities with bona fide credentials who are effective leaders. For political reasons Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell may not be the choice all of the electorate, but one cannot dispute their impressive resumes, qualifications, and tract record of experience.
Oh yeah,now he gets vetted,and not by our SHAMEFUL
MEDIA..
"Obama's career was skillfully orchestrated by the likes of George Soros"
I really thought I heard it all, but you sir you take the cake, you ought to have your head examined which, I'm sure, can be accomplished with a proctoscope!"Let us not assassinate this lad further, Senator. You've done enough. Have you no sense of decency, sir? At long last, have you left no sense of decency?"
