  President Bush also didn't massively expand programs and remove work requirements.  Obama's expanded these programs beyond belief.  He's advocated for that his entire career.               It doesn't have to be socialist to be an entitlement.  It is most definitely an entitlement, however.  It's a massive expansion to the tune of 2.7 Trillion dollars.  It's not discretionary, so what is it?  It is most definitely an entitlement.         You have to be kidding.  I think...
  The national polls are tied.  That is a fact.  Other recent polls show Romney ahead in Florida, within the margin of error in PA, and gaining in OH.   You're wrong.  
  Pissed off which people...the British press?  Your friends?  The PM and mayor of London?  By the way, you called the former a "conservative."  However, a "conservative" in Britain is not equal to a conservative here in the U.S.           The leader of what opposition?             No, not that level of insult...not even close.          He wasn't on a diplomatic mission.  He, as a former Olympic head, had concerns about London's preparation.  These concerns were not new....
  I think that's entirely reasonable.  Well put.           I disagree with that.  Obama has done nothing but massively expand the entitlement state.  He has taken no action whatsoever in terms of welfare reform, and in fact has gone backwards.  He created a new healthcare entitlement.  Social welfare programs have exploded in terms of enrollment.  He is clearly moving in pro-welfare direction, which he views as an effective way to redistribute wealth---something he...
  Are you claiming the video was responsible for the attack?  Are you disputing this was the administration's official position?  Are you you disputing the White House's official story (a spontaneous act) directly conflicted with the Libyan President's statement?  
  It got burned into people's awareness because it all happened.  It had nothing to do with the right.             Yes, I do.  I do because many of them were ratty, unkempt folks illegally camped in a park, as you put it.  These kinds of people aren't even aware that they are cutting off their noses to spite their faces.            So they wanted...what, exactly?  How does one hold these entities "responsible?" Jail time?  Massive fines...distributed...
  Are you claiming that Romney's Olympics comments were tantamount to "criticizing an ally?"  I find it hard to believe you actually think that.  
muppetry:            I understand the distinction, but I'm not so sure it's accurate or entirely accurate.  While it seems unlikely that it's all the same people, I'd bet that most people that don't pay taxes won't support Romney.  The two exceptions might be those who get SS and pay no taxes (living entirely on it), and those on some sort of veterans' or disability benefits.  However, I'd bet that the vast majority of that 47% are people who, because of deductions and...
I used maps today for some navigation.  While I initially liked the app, the accuracy was piss poor.  I used it to try and find a Wal-Mart.  Yeah, it lead me on a wild goose chase, telling me to turn where I merely had to bend to the right or left.  The Wal-Mart was not there.  Fortunately the second one was.  There were also a few turns that didn't exist in reality ("turn on X in 1.9 miles" and yet there was no turn despite it being shown on the map at the current...
  1.  We could not "effectively" defend this country with 80% less money for the military.  What we could do is maintain a very minimal force that could only really be used for defending the continental U.S., if that.  We could afford probably one or two carrier battlegroups, a 50 ship Navy, a few hundred aircraft and maybe 100,000 ground forces total.  We would not be able to project power anywhere.  If we or one of our allies were attacked, we'd have no real way to...
