    That is quite a jump.

    I don't think you understand how his religion would not let him do the things you people seem to think he did.

But then...I never proudly admitted to shooting an unarmed fleeing enemy combatant in the back either).
    He nominated himself for nothing, but that's minor compared to the bigger lie you posted . . . . . He NEVER admitted to shooting anyone who was unarmed, and in the back.

    Myself and the other 24 guys who were present have said no such thing, and neither has Kerry. In fact, the guy had a loaded B-40. He was not, according to several present, shot in the back.

    Romney may have paid millions in taxes but he chose not to use some deductions, and he'll just amend his next years tax return so that he pays even less.. no biggie.. just saying.

    Awesome, Doug. Where you also drifting along on Christmas eve 1968 in Cambodia, listening on the radio to President Nixon telling the world at that moment you werent in Cambodia on Christmas eve in 1968? Was that memory 'seared' into your brain? (perhaps that 'searing' was literal and thats why he forgot that Nixon wasnt president in 1968). Did you also pick up mystery shards of shrapnel so small they managed to leave no scars or wounds yet penetrate a hull, tanks, decking, and seat to magically find its way into your ass...shards so small they could be removed with tweezers? Did you manage to record 3 purple hearts in 120 days without requiring any actual medical care? Were you one of those liberal war hawks that was all about fighting the war when it was a democrat in office but somehow found a conscience after the republican was elected? Did you also volunteer to testify with liars and pretend soldiers? Oh...and did you SEE this new weapon...this grenade launcher that the opposition fired at you while running away, making getting shot in the back a necessity?

    Yet another one of those issues that could have been resolved by simple offering a complete review of those military records. And heck...who knows...maybe he would have been so proud of his efforts upon further review that he would retrieve those medals he threw away for a photo op. Oh...thats right...he already did. But you know...more of that SELECTIVE desire for disclosure. As the OP said...liberals are ALL ABOUT full disclosure...from the other guy.

    Well she was governor so she was an elected official. She also was your parties VP on the Presidential ticket so she's prominent. She receive millions a year via Fox News to spew her garbage so she must be pretty a pretty big deal because a doubt Fox News just signs a million dollar contract with anyone.

    As for your "pals around"...they met like twice and only due to both of them being prominent members of Chicago society. Both have said they don't know each other. But facts don't matter right?

    I definitely think so.

    There is a world of difference between the typical skewering of the facts to support a position and the Senate majority leader taking the floor and blatantly making stuff up to influence a presidential election.

    The part that really annoys me about this whole Romney tax situation is that he is just paying the tax rates that the POTUS signs into law.

    Does Obama launching his political career in Ayers living Room count as one of those times they "met"?

    No, he should just learn to shut the **** up unless he can back his claims with evidence. Proper punishment for this, imo, is to regularly shame him in public. Kind of a modern stockade type deal.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
