    Romney is taking a beating over his inept approach to relation to foreign nations and events.

    Who's David Cole? Should we care about his opinion?

    I mean, let's face it: this is the same president who issued an "unequivocal condemnation of the terrorist attack and a sober, absolutely credible promise that the attackers will be brought to justice"...and then headed to Vegas for a fund raiser.

    It is called delegation of a job. He gives the orders and let's the folk who do that kind of work loose to do their job. Then he moves on to the next task ... and this is a campaign season. You certainly do not want a micro-manager where every step of the job must be vetted and approved. That was a huge problem in Vietnam under Johnson and it cost many American lives.

    Would you have him fly to the Mid-East and start walking the streets looking for the terrorists?

    Did Romney stop his campaign or did he continue his campaign by trying to make political points?

    Sheesh. I'd just like to have a president who cares about what's happening here at home. All Obama cares about is himself- that much is obvious. At least Romney has a track record of caring for others.

    Clint Eastwood had it right - empty chair. Empty chair in the Oval Office. Wonder if obama managed to get a golf game in, too.

    Ah yes, liberals--good intentions are all it takes to govern. Politician: "I promise I will do this..." Never mind the nitty-gritty work that needs to be done. Someone please explain how you are going to find these perpetrators?

    Madison, Wisconsin? A University town!

    A teacher from Wisconsin had an interesting and accurate description of Madison on Fox over the weekend. She said in response to a Madison judge striking down the state law restricting the dictatorship of public employee unions: "Madison is a bubble surrounded by reality."

    It has been sad at the lengths the administration will go to try and appears strong on foreign policy. The biggest issue has been the many leaks appearing to come from the White House, endangering field operations, in hopes of making the President appear strong and in control.

    Now, as we see, Obama's middle east policy is falling apart. The President relentlessly criticized his predecessor for making America unpopular in the world. Now as we are seeing with a world in turmoil, many protests against America, Obama's ideas have not worked nor made us safer in the world.

    Seriously? Do you even think about your posts before hitting "submit"?

    You're trying to prove "delegation" on the same president who basically said he had to be the one to approve the final "kill" orders?

    Obamma is not shy when it comes to killing people whether it is unborn children or the collateral damage from his use of drones. There is a word for such folks!

    Has anyone ever noticed throughout the years, when an attack happens against some American interest, that the President at the time who will do nothing will call a press conference and say, to paraphrase, "I strongly condemn this attack, and we will bring so and so to justice." Then, that is the last one ever hears about the event.

    I am sure the terrorists hearing "I condemn the attack" are shaking in their boots.

    Mittens has proven himself unfit for office. To politicize the deaths of our diplomatic team is unconscionable. He is a fool. The statement was on the website for the US embassy in Egypt before the events in Libya. The embassy in Egypt is in hostile territory as well. The statements did not come from Obama. Mittens is a liar and dishonors our nation with his inane statements attempting to gain political advantage.

    If Obama fails to get our revenge before election day, should he still be reelected?

    Strange...weren't you one of those who jumped on board and demonized bush for continuing to read to the classroom immediately following 9/11?

    If it were up to me I'd have him and his NATO cohorts in jail for funding, arming and training the very terrorists they used to topple Libya and are right now busy murdering people to topple the regime in Syria!

    I can't even begin to count the laws both international and domestic they broke in order to support these murdering terrorists and now we're expected to believe Obama is actually going to hunt them down?

    Crabby, dude wake up. Your guy has been helping these terrorists at every turn do you really think he's now going to hunt them down? :laugh:

    Leave that to Romney. He has Bush's neocons to advise him. Nevermind they all lied through their teeth to take us into two wars we will never win. And how many died and got maimed as a result. Nevermind what it has done to our economy and liberties here at home.

    We can count on them to get it right this time. :rolleyes:

    We who aren't in Madison, i.e. the rest of the state, like to refer to it as Sixty Square Miles Surrounded By Reality.

    Think of Madison as Moscow West, or San Francisco East. It is that liberal.

    I'd venture to say that if it weren't for Madison and Milwaukee, Wisconsin would be a firmly red state.

    "Madison is a bubble surrounded by reality."

    Madison is kinda like Baptist Board then. We don't allow reality to penetrate our little bubble here either.
