International Skinny On The U.S. Election

Jun 13, 2012 Full story: National Public Radio 28

If it's true that America now resides smack dab in the middle of an interdependent global village, then we should probably pay attention to what other countries think about us - our values, our leadership and the presidential election of 2012.

We threw Europe out 236 years ago, saved their asses twice and then we need to worry about what they think of us?

That's as funny as a flash flood in an alka seltzer factory!

What!! I thought Obama was supposed to bring respect from the world to our country. He was supposed to fix the economic mess Bush left him. Now he has made everything worse, and Romney will have to fix the mess Obama is leaving him. The people are getting wiser. Now Gov Romney is ahead of Obama in Wisconsin.

The man is completely out of his element. I blame the Democrats. Biden even said he would be there to rein Obama in if he did someting stupid when we questioned his inexperience, but Obama wouldn't listen. Now we are in a much worse a financial mess then when President Bush left.

Yea. all those people who found jobs were better off unemployed. The stock market would be better at half its current value. Instead of what he was doing, he wasted all that time, not shipping all the jobs to China. What was he thinking? The middle class could have been completely destroyed by now, but instead a few are still hanging on.

Jobs left for China under clinton-with his "fair trade BS!" The middle class is 90% non union, dopey. Our tax dollars have funded shovel ready, cash for clunkers, solyndra and other nobama failures. Thank God for 2010.

Sen. Paul proposes bill protecting Americans from drone surveillance
By Pete Kasperowicz - 06/13/12 09:10 AM ET

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Tuesday introduced the Preserving Freedom from Unwarranted Surveillance Act, which would require the government to get a warrant before using aerial drones to surveil U.S. citizens.
More broadly, Paul's bill is aimed at preventing "unwarranted governmental intrusion" through the use of drones, according to the lawmaker.

Democrats will still be telling us how Obama is going to win reelection November 7th after his historic loss. They live in a dream world. We have 26 million Americans out of work, and the President is lying about creating 4 million jobs. He has lost more jobs then he created, and our people are not doing fine. His own people are telling him to stop telling Americans how everything has improved, it hasn't. It is worse. His auto bailout was more a UAW bailout, and his green companies were pitiful projects that failed almost before thet started.

Obama is the WORST Totus of ALL-TIME. He's a criminal that has Assassinated US Citizens and has accrued more Unpatriotic National Debt than Bush!

Since virtually everything Obama and Holder have been ordered to do, they have ignored, now both will be in contempt of court. When Obama gets wiped out in Novermber, they will have to hook a repo truck up to him and pull him out of the White House..........clutching a bag of lobsters.

While there is plenty to hold Clinton accountable for, and is signing the agreements to eliminate our jobs were certainly one of them, the start of the elimination of the middle class really accelerated with Reagan and his deregulation of business. Remember, unregulated capitalism is the same thing as fascism. And no, Clinton did nothing to stop the republican onslaught; and neither has Obama.
