It was a joke, nuc. Someone said Krauthammer "didn't build that" referring to his own success.
Relax. Take a few deep breaths.
That was Knock-knock...he wasn't applying to to Krauthammer; he was just repeating that one lying lie out-of-context line that he's been using all day. PULEEEEEEEEEEEZE, don't be so simple-minded.

In the same article, the Slovak foreign minister, Mr. Lajcak, also said the U.S. and European allies must continue to try and explain the defense plan to Russia WHICH REMAINS SKEPTICAL.
So...since Russia remains "skeptical", ever wonder what Obama meant when he told Putin he would be more flexible after his reelection?
Flexible about what?
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.

Yeah, pretty much everyone was on board with TARP - including Obama and almost every single democrat.
Guess you'll have to try another argument. TARP has been paid back in full.
What about the $5 trillion that's been added since then?
Carol, no.

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.

I wish Obama had actually done even ones days work and earned even one private sector dollar.
I believe Obama was being completely honest when he said "You didn't build that"
But he had to be talking to people who like himself have received virtually everything (From education to housing) cradle to grave entitlements from those of us who actually do work.
That's exactly what he was thinking. He's never had to build anything. It was all handed to him.

And this from a guy who apparently doesn't even know where he lived as a child.
The Whites of West Virginia is a documentary about what is billed as America's last outlaw family and was produced in Boone County WVA which is damned near adjacent to Fayette County only separated by a sliver of another county.
Homer was talking about a different documentary which was produced in Saul KY which is West of Hazard a good piece and actually closer to London where that crazy lady who posts here in the morning lives.
Whitesville WVA is by far the nicer of the two shytholes. And the Whites were nowhere as backwater as the Bowlings.
I've been throughout that region, even back during the coal boom of the early seventies when the economy was gangbusters.
Cheers, thanks for setting the record straight, I knew the documentary I was referring to was in Appalachia, same general area.

Your jealousy over his winning the Peace Prize is still rankling you!!
Good!! I'm happy it pisses you off.
Because none of your Republiclowns would ever be offered such a prize, token or otherwise!!
In fact, there are countries Bush cannot travel to, for fear of arrest.
Your sour grapes are amusing to watch.
"Krauthammer is ok as long as he doesn't attack a Republican" is Carol's view of 'common sense'.
Jealousy isn't exactly the right word. Astonished is more accurate.

What exactly did he accomplish to win a Nobel Peace Prize? Please be specific. I'm a simple woman, after all.

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?
