    What does that prove? That the Head-Over-His-Head-In-Chief received a piece of paper from a college that has a bigger endowment than the rest?

Then again Mitt Romney was 1st in his college class (he was top of his class at Stanford as well, but married during his mission and then transferred to BYU) and was top of his class at the Harvard B school as well as graduating from Honors from HLS.

    If academic achievement was the issue in 2008, Romney had no peers.
    It seems that there may be moe prejudice against Mormons than Blacks. Should not be bias against anyone, but I wonder what the conerns are with Mormon folks.

    We need tax cuts and reduced spending to increase the tax rolls I would send this Amateur In Chief a personal message to include a history lesson but I’m already on his enemies list because I’m smarter than he is, as are most of those who post he against this Socialist/Marxist wacko.

    Yes I did if you call San Diego State an Ivy League School.

    And I can read and understand our history.

    Re: Obama to Call for $50 Billion Spending on Public Works

    Then again, since HALF of the Messiah's earlier Porkulus Stimulus package hasn't been spent, why exactly is it necessary to allocate more new money on these special projects?

    If the Messiah's 400 billion dollar Magic Economic Restoration Plan didn't work, why is the Messiah and his dupes so frantic to pass this miniscule 50 billion dollar Union Renewal Fund?

    Could it be that no one seriously believes that this money will be anything but the same kind of waste the Porkulus Stimulus has been, but the Messiah has to give the Democrats some bogus "rescue plan" to play politicis with before the November elections?

    Are the unAmerican people stupid enough to swallow yet another baited hook?

    The Americans can see it for what it is, and we're not biting.

    good point-during the campaign (when it looked Like Mitt was gonna run against Hillary) a reporter went to some bible thump rally and quizzed a true believer about Ms Clinton and Hizzoner Romney. THe woman selected 10 positions-all of which agreed with Mitt. SO will you vote for Mitt asked the reporter? NO said the woman=he's not a real Christian and Ms CLinton is.

    its disgusting. I wouldn't care if a candidate is Mormon, Hasidic, Santeria worships Ba'al or is a witch doctor if they are pro business, Pro America, Pro Tax payer, pro gun and pro freedom. He could sacrifice chickens in the Oval office and LIght a candle for Elvis for all I could care. The worst are those who worship big government and "economic justice" (marxist redistributionist nonsense)

    It's called jobs people. When people have money, they spend it and the entire economy rebounds.
    So....perhaps we should stop the government from stealing the money from the people who have it to fund programs we don't need simply because the people working on those programs will vote for Democrats?

    It's not like new money or new wealth is being created....oh, no. This is just re-distributionist socialist nonsense from an avowed Marxist seeking to provide a talking point for his party members before the November elections in the hope that he might manage to retain the Senate, anyway.

    EARNING money is not a crime, but the way some of it is being made should be. Wall Street is a rigged game, the insiders skim off the top for themselves. Works in other business ventures as well. Want to make money in real estate? It is best to be a realtor or borker. Insiders dealing with other people's money are rarely honest for very long. Likewise politicians...they may start out with honorable intent, but the opportunities for corruption are many, and those with ethics are few....
    As for my being a moderate, don't worry about it, I almost always vote conservative....but I will never vote for the ubercons, the far right selfish greedy corporate/business whores. I have plenty of money, more than many of the "conservatives" I know. They may know how to earn, but they don't know how to spend conservatively....

    the people you are talking about generally vote dem. Hardly far right. You think Goldman Sucks etc are Far right? WTH do you think the former Senator and Governor of NJ came from-the one who spent 60 million to win the office in the first place? How about Timothy Geithner-the tax cheat and obama slurper? Far right my 6

    What does Iraq have to do with anything? How do you--as a seperation of church and state Liberal--feel about tax money being sepnt to rebuild religious buildings? Why not spend that money here, in the United States?
