Yep outsourcing groundwork was all laid in the 90's and continued through each congress. We now see the fruits of that as well as the foreign companies that manufacture here. Of course, its lopsided in the imports favor. Every industrialized country in the world has tariffs for a reason.
Vote for whomever you want, sit back and watch business as usual afterwards. Choices all provided, opinions pre-decided.

Actually, Who ever gets elected, does not really matter. Because all politicians are worried ABOUT THEIR NEXT TRIP TO THE BERMUDAS OR WHERE THEIR MONEY WILL TAKE THEM OR THEIR MISTRESS, GOD FORBID THEIR WIFE OR GIRLFRIEND FIND OUT !!!!! Got a problem with that ???

Terry, stop with the class warfare. I am middle-class, but I don't think that those that have risked, invested, mortgaged, etc...should be penalized or demonized for any lavish living. There are some Americans who have genuinely had bad luck, but a larger portion have just settled and want the rest of the country to subsidize their mediocrity. There are bad R's and bad D's just like bad whites and bad blacks. Being in a public office should mean you are more aware of morality, but sadly it doesn't. That is true on both sides. R's platform stands for traditional marriage and life. Dem's platform stands for everything that goes against what this country was founded upon....God. Who will you stand with?

After four years, the Bush Bash is growing weary! What has taken place the last four years?? Improvements??Empty promises and conflict, more unemployment than we've ever had in this country. Health care is a nightmare and the continued spending is atrocious. Michelle Obama has over 50 people on HER staff. Her own chef, the kids chef, an event planner, her stylist, her hairdresser, her massage therapist and on and on, at tax payers expense I might add. The personal vacations have totalled in the millions not to mention each time Air Force one is fired up. Laura Bush had one assistant. Millions of dollars have been spent on "personal entertainment" for the first family. If we are tightening our belts, should our president and his family not set an example instead of ludicrious spending that has nothing to do with governing our country. The list is so endless, it is tiresome to even start. Wake up, read the facts and make wise choices
Aren't you so surprised by how Dem's don't seem to pay attention to see the truth of Dem's? Everything you said was so true, yet you don't hear people talking about it. Sick. They dog Romney's wife for expensive clothes. O's wife has just as expensive a wardrobe. Frustrating!

1.6 million spent on Michelle Obama's assistants. That is tax payer money. Of course, 48% of peeps don't pay any federal taxes, so probably few on this site.....

<quoted text>Bush bashing does not have an expiration date. It will go on and on in our history books since he is the Republican President that put this country in such a hole that we are still digging our way out. You have lots to say about Michelle Obama but can you back any of these statements up? Now I know you are tired from reading this so called endless list but try really hard to back up your accusations.
Actually the Wall Street Journal reported her staff is paid over one and a half million dollars of tax payers money each year. That is a lot of letter writing and party planning in my book for any woman, even a FIRST LADY!!It is just my opinion that with record unemployment in our country that she would have such a costly staff, but you probably consider that her contribution to unemployment.

Lets not forget that the economy crashed under George Bush, not Obama. And that was after 8 years of republican leadership, 8 years they had to try it their way saying dont worry, it will trickle down to you and promising tax cuts for the rich would produce jobs. The historical facts show us that not only did it not produce the jobs, it made rich even richer, everyone else suffered, and the economy almost collapsed. Now after blocking everything Obama tries to do they scream... look he doesnt do anything..blah blah blah, he still hasnt completely pulled us out of Bush's mess, blah blah blah. 8 Years of GWB/Republican and we get a depression. Now they want to do it all over again. Romney/Ryan=Bush/Cheney on crack.

plz citizen....Which Bush? Bush had a slim Republican majority in the house until 2007 when the Democrats gain a 233-198 majority. The Senate was split 50-50 at the beginning of his first term and 49-49-2 at the end of his second term. The democrat party had control of both the the House and Senate, starting January 4th, 2007, when the recession began. The democrats kept control until the voters chose the republican party to reclaim the House starting on January 3rd, 2011, after the first two years of Barack Obama's presidency. Clinton likes to take a lot of credit for wealth during his presidency and don't get me wrong I think he did a lot of things right, BUT he took office and the techno-boom.....dotcom.boom occured..remember Gore saying he invented the internet.....the internet revolution propelled the economy. Clinton was on auto-pilot. That is probably why he had time for BJ's in the oval office.

I was born and raised Democrat. Sorry people, in the big scheme of things this should mean very little. I was one that wished with all my heart that he would do great things also. I feel that you should vote in the best interest of your country, plain and simple! It's not at this point about either party, it's voting for the lesser of two evils. I honestly believe Obama is an evil man! I believe he is trying to ruin us. When you all pay so much for gas that you can't afford to get back and forth to work, you can blame yourselves. There are some that have to drive long distances to and from work. But, on the bright side, we can still get badly needed oil from Russia after they begin drilling on the free oil rich islands he gave them.

Hey Texan, that is funny! But hopefully he won't start on the oil already being drilled here in the US, but I'm afraid he will. We can't be using up our own resources, we must be indebted to other countries. He has to be the most beloved President to them. As for Just Wondering, it terrifies me to about God. If we take God out of our country he will remove his hands from us. Before it's all over he will see to it that we all have to praise Allah. They will have to kill me first!

Hope and pray he doesn't want to impress Mexico. One morning you'll wake up and your new address will be Mexico, just like those people in Alaska. They were never asked how they felt, but their new address is Russia. So good bye Texan.

Terrorist That Killed 5 US Soldiers Freed After Obama Refuses To Put Him in Gitmo

8/7/12

Ali Mussa Daqduq killed tortured and killed 5 US soldiers in Iraq back in 2007. He was detained by the United States.

Instead of sending him to Gitmo, Obama turned him over to the Iraqi authorities. But to Obama's surprise (not ours), Iraq freed him.

Judicial Watch via Breitbart:

But President Obama didn’t want to remove the terrorist from Iraq without permission from the country, in order not to violate its sovereignty. He also refused to take Daqduq to the U.S. Naval base in Guantanamo Cuba, which houses other high-value terrorists, because the facility is an anathema in the Middle East and Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki would not approve the “unacceptable” Guantanamo option.

So Obama handed Daqduq over to the Iraqis even though several members of congress pointed out that it would be the same as freeing him. Apparently, Iraq pinky promised to hold him accountable for murdering our soldiers. No one, probably not even Obama, really believed that and this week a national newswire story confirmed it.

Obama wants to claim he supports the troops? That he values their service? But why doesn't he value their lives? Why doesn't he seek justice when 5 US service members lose their lives to a terrorist? Hey President, where's the apology to the United States people for this unfathomable error you made?

Please, go to the msn news page and click on Lynching pic used in vote drive. A pastor from a church used a picture of two black boys being lynched in 1930. Get real. Underneath it, it says, Is this a reason to vote?! REALLY?????????? I am so sick of them being able to do that stuff, but let us say something, anything! I nor my family have ever lynched a single soul in our lives!! I don't think anyone on here has even mentioned anything about color! I'm sick to death of them USING it, saying we just don't want a black guy in their. Get real! They are the ones who are prejudice and I'm NOT gonna take it anymore!! I am not prejudice, but by gum, Barrack Obama is a terrible President!! Doesn't matter the color, if you suck, you just simply SUCK!!!!!!!!!!
