So you think being a rude a-hole and refusing to follow the format of a public debate by not only NOT answering the question, but by being an arrogant jerk to the moderator is presidential? And funny?

He came across like the spoiled rich kid that he is - "My daddy's rich and I don't have to do anything I don't wanna do. So there!"

That wasn't rude.

What's rude is Oblama calling Special Olympics kids "retarded" on the Tonight Show. Now there's a real a-hole.

I thought this was a thread about last night's debate.

As far as I know, President Obama wasn't a participant - although he clearly came out the winner (again!).

Now that was funny.

I never said anything about anyone looking presidential. But now
that you mention it, Dr Paul falls into THAT category for me

Romney doesn't come off to me as a daddy rich kind of guy. Almost apologetic for being born into money.
But even if he did for you, remember, a lot of our Presidents were born with silver spoon in their mouth
when they were elected: JFK, FDR, Bush Jr & Sr, come to mind, to name a few.

What else I found hilarious....when Next described himself as cheerful. All I
could do was picture a Leprechaun sprinkling gold dust on everyone while
warning of nuclear disaster at a city near you


I guess there's no accounting for another's sense of humor
or lack of

Only a delusional ******* could see that obama is a winner in ANYTHING. We certainly aren't...having been under his rule for the last 3+ years.

What about oil trade causes you to call me that?

I'm a *******, your a douche bag.

I don't think you are a douche bag... get my point.

Now with that behind us. Do you think Mexico won't tit for tat with the US if we don't provide a legal access for cheap Mexican labor?

Ehm - go read the reasons why we were attacked. Strat with the reports from the Dept of Defense and the CIAs Bin Laden Unit. Occupying their Holy lands, undying support of Israel, and having a hand in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people.
We were attacked because our foreign policy is defective. We've been meddling over there since 1953 when the CIA helped overthrow a Democratically elected leader over Oil. Sixty years of occupation. Hows that worked out?
It's simple, if we weren't over there they wouldn't have come over here.
