    @Italian Mike
    Well mike if you loved GW Bush lied war in Iraq, then surely Romney is the man for you, Romney has stated that he would send the troops into Syria and he would bring back the troops in Iraq.

    I guess we are going to stay there for another 100 years right?

  • Italian Mike

    I have not heard that Romney wanted to send troops to Syria. There is no need to send troops to Syria. They have people who want to fight. I would help arm them and provide air cover for them.

    As far as Iraq that bird has to fly on it’s own now. It would not be a good idea after pulling everyone out.

    Bruno, we are losing people in Afganistan. The liberal media does not report it because they are trying to protect President Obama in an election year. The Drone program is killing many. The bad guys yes but also civilians.

    If you are a dove you should be protesting these actions in the streets. The left had massive war protests when Bush was President. Why are there no protests now?

  • Bruno

    (Bruno, we are losing people in Afganistan. The liberal media does not report it because they are trying to protect President Obama in an election year. The Drone program is killing many. The bad guys yes but also civilians.)

    Excuse me but who was it that send the Americans into Afganistan in the first place? oh thats GW Bush going after Bin laden, from what i have seen in my view i believe that Bin laden dead years ago, due to the fact if you remember Mike.

    Bin laden had health issues.

    (Why are there no protests now?)

    Mike why aren’t there massive protests like an American Spring? even though i am not calling for one i am just saying.

    What has happened to the American people? have or some they all turned mindless drons, sheeps?

    Watching there TV shows like the American got talent,American Idol what has happened to the great nation that stood for liberty and peace?

    Mike also from these ratings seems to me that FOX,CNN and others are also losing viewers in a fair comparison.

    But i still want to know mike what has happened to the Former America that i knew once?

    Why aren’t all Americans protesting for the mainstream news outlets lies and propaganda on about everything? and on Syria?

  • Suikostinger

    “Bruno, we are losing people in Afganistan. The liberal media does not report it because they are trying to protect President Obama in an election year.”

    The media as a whole stopped talking about the deaths in Afghanistan (including fox) for a very long time even before Obama took office…so what are you ranting about?

    “The left had massive war protests when Bush was President. Why are there no protests now?”

    Most of the war protests were about the Iraq war not the afghan war….you know the senseless war that we had no right to go to. The Economy has replaced the wars in the media….plain and simple to comprehend.

  • Suikostinger

    The “Job Creators” have had tax breaks for 10 years now……where are the jobs.

  • Italian Mike



    Bruno was responding to my post. I’m the one that needs to comprehend.

  • Italian Mike

    Back up a few and you will see my post.

  • Italian Mike



    You can bet your life if Bush was President those Six service members killed in Afganistan on Sunday would be splashed all over the media. It’s all about doing politcal damage to the right and protecting the left.

    I read your post. You make a reasoned rebuttal.

  • Suikostinger

    Yeah, I saw them report it on ABC News and CNN news……

    Romney’s Top Six ‘I Know I Am But So Are You’ Moments

    Mitt Romney has a way of deflecting criticism that is uniquely his. Where most politicians tend to pivot to another topic if they don’t like what someone is accusing them of, Romney takes an I’m-rubber-you’re-glue approach to attacks, accepting them as true but then simultaneously making the same accusation of his opponent.
    Just today, the Romney campaign has started reflecting back allegations of outsourcing by saying that, in fact, President Obama was the one who really outsourced jobs. This is just the latest maneuver of the sort. Here are the top six times that Romney has had a “I Know I Am But So Are You” moment:
    1. Mitt Romney “offshores” jobs, but Obama outsources. When the Washington Post ran a story depicting how Mitt Romney sent jobs overseas during his time at Bain Capital, the Romney campaign rushed to specify that he had “offshored” jobs, not “outsourced” them. But now, the campaign is saying that it was in fact Obama who outsourced jobs, since the Recovery Act funded US-based renewable energy projects by companies that also did work overseas. Those claims have been debunked previously as patently untrue.
    2. Romneycare’s individual mandate is constitutional, but Obamacare’s isn’t. Mitt Romney’s spokespeople have argued that the individual mandate is an “unconstitutional penalty.” Romney called it a constitutional tax. But whatever it’s called, he wants to be clear that Obama is raising taxes and Romney, when he passed a nearly identical bill in Massachusetts, was not. (He did, however, briefly say it was a tax then too)
    3. Mitt Romney got two degrees from Harvard, but Obama “spent too much time” there. Mitt Romney got two degrees — a JD and MBA — at Harvard; President Obama only received his JD. But Romney told his audience at a rally earlier this year that Obama “spent too much time at Harvard.” This argument tries to frame Obama as the out-of-touch elite, despite the fact that Romney is the millionaire son of a governor.
    4. Romney wants to gut Medicare, but says Obama is responsible for massive Medicare cuts. Romney has said that Obama wants to “end Medicare as we know it.” But Romney’s budget proposal drastically reduced federal funding and will require seniors to purchase insurance using “premium support” vouchers.
    5. Romney says he shouldn’t be held accountable for inheriting a recession in Massachusetts, but holds Obama accountable for 2009 job losses. In 2006, when job creation was incredibly slow in Massachusetts under a Romney governorship, he asked constituents to understand how hard it is to pull a state out of a deep recession. But the Romney campaign still blames Obama for job loses that occurred in the early days of his administration.
    6. Mitt Romney’s big houses are a sign of success, John Kerry’s big house shows he’s rich and out of touch. In 2004, when Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) was the Democratic candidate for President, Romney went on the attack, joking that he didn’t know why Kerry would want to be president since “he would have to move into a smaller house.”

  • Bruno

    @Jeff well Jeff if you miss the days of the War mongering days of GW Bush then Surely Romney is the man for you apparently, and Jeff.

    Rush Limbaugh has been on the hot bed and his ratings has sunken your still listening to the Nutcase GW Bush Saudi Fan?

    (The conservative radio host’s ratings fell 27 percent in the key 25-54 demo in New York City, 31 percent in Houston-Galveston, 40 percent in Seattle-Tacoma, and 35 percent in Jacksonville, according to a selection of the March 29-April 25 Arbitron ratings provided by an industry source.)

    (Romneycare’s individual mandate is constitutional)

    Thats a a bold Rich statement Neocon care to back it up without trolling?

  • Bruno

    Jeff How much is The Romney Camp paying you to Troll?

  • Bruno

    Honestly Among Jeff Here it really doesn’t matter who gets in the White House Romney Or Obama, they are all the same.

    Expect Romney wants an a War with Iran. While still allowing to show support for the two brutal regimes of Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

  • twins fan

    @bruno jeff is a liberal cut him some slack.

  • Suikostinger

    “Jeff How much is The Romney Camp paying you to Troll?”

    Probably the same amount Lbsles is getting paid. :)
