Today is a good day!

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday shows Mitt Romney picking up 48% of the vote, while President Obama attracts 44%.

... picking up the support of women as well.

It's the economy, stupid. And it should stay stupid for quite some time. LOL

I wonder how much Kobe beef Mooch will gorge herself with knowing she'll have to buy her own in a few months. LOL Keep an eye on her caboose for details.

You somehow forgot to mention following your Obama worship service that the incompetent Obama hasn't been one bit successful in fixing it.

Overview of IAEA Nuclear Inspections in Iraq
Steven Dolley and Paul Leventhal[1]
Nuclear Control Institute
June 14, 2001
It is important and timely to examine the International Atomic Energy Agencys (IAEA) inspections of Iraqs nuclear program, both before and after the Gulf War. Distinctly absent from most policy discussions of the topic are voices critical of the Agencys performance in Iraq. The IAEAs record of shortcomings and failures in detecting nuclear-weapons development in Iraq should be weighed against its accomplishments when assessing any potential role for the Agency in the event inspections are resumed in Iraq.
The only IAEA visits to Iraq since Saddam kicked U.N. inspectors out in late 1998 have been two brief trips to verify the amount and status of Iraqs declared stocks of natural and low-enriched uranium.[2] However, there have been troubling indications over the last two years that Saddams nuclear-weapons program has not only survived, but been reinvigorated. In a speech televised in Baghdad last September, Saddam told his nuclear energy officials that the battle is your battle, that Iraqs enemies will be defeated when their losses will be as huge as the gains they had hoped to achieve, and that the Nuclear Energy [Association] has a big duty in this field.[3] Salman Zweir worked for 13 years as an engineer for the Iraqi Atomic Energy Commission before defecting to the West in late 1998. Zweir, who worked on the centrifuge uranium enrichment program, claims that Saddam recalled him and many other technical personnel to the nuclear-weapons program in the fall of 1998. Zweir refused, was imprisoned and tortured, and eventually escaped to the West.[4] Some other recent reports of alleged defectors are less credible.[5] The general picture that emerges is an ongoing, active effort by Iraq to build nuclear weapons.
I assume you posted this because it says Saddam kicked UN inspectors out in 1998, is that correct? Is that y'all's problem? You are aware that they returned in 2002 and were still active when we told them to evacuate in 2003 so we could invade right? Right? I mean, ya'll didn't miss that didja? Its kind of important since Hans Blix was telling Bush et. al. that there was no evidence of WMD and that Saddam was cooperating and that we shouldn't invade. Did y'all miss that?

The IAEA is part of the UN, doody.

"In February 2012, the regime promised to allow UN inspectors back into the country and to suspend uranium enrichment in return for US food aid.
But shortly after that it launched a rocket in apparent defiance of UN resolutions banning missile tests, leaving that deal dead in the water."
"back" into the country?
Wiki - Timeline of North Korea nuclear program: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_Nort...
"1992: In May, for the first time, North Korea allows a team from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), then headed by Hans Blix, to visit the facility at Yongbyon."
Anything else you wish to deny today?
My, there's a 20 year gap there between visits. Somewhere in that gap they tested a weapon.

Or take precautions if they don't. It's not that complicated.
I agree, it's not that hard to prevent pregnancy; but you can't legislate human behavior, there are a lot of dumb people, and then there are those that make mistakes. We're human.
I say, pass out free birth control pills; it's a win win all the way around.

Oh please....the damage the Bush caused under any president that knew what he was doing would have been turned around by now. Obama came in and spent more in less than four years than Bush did with two unfunded wars and in office for eight years. This is Obama's baby now, and American's are real sick of the "but what about what Bush handed me" excuse Obama has used his entire presidency. When did he plan on taking over as president and accepting the responsibility of the job anyway? He may have thought he would just get a free ride through his presidency and then get re-elected but he was sadly mistaken.

Why his base, as far as the blacks and hispanics go, would continue to support him is beyond most people with common sense. It must be the race thing because their unemployment rate is the highest of any other group. So how has the "hopey changey thing" working for you anyway?

Obama doesn't get to steal all the credit for what others do that make a positive change in this country and then pass the buck on the responsibility for what is destroying our country. He is president and the buck stops with him no matter what he may want.

And why not, Lily? Just because most of them are Christian-based schools?
It's a parent's choice. Doesn't that mean anything? A parent's right to choose even if you don't like the choice? Really, Lily? Is that what you're saying?
Would you mind paying for Muslim-based schools?
Nevermind, I know your answer.
Yes I would mind; and that's funny, I was going to say that if the public tax payer has to pay for religious indoctrination; well then it would have to be fair; christian, Hebrew school, Muslim schools, and on and on, I'm sure you can't fathom that.
I have no use for organized religion, it's a business and teaches people to hate others. I'm sure that is not what God intended.
I sent my children to Lutheran school and paid for it myself. After middle school, they went to public high school. Everyone has a choice, pay for it.
