There the LJW goes again with unintentionally or intentionally dissing the republican candidate - either say Barack Obama and Mitt Romney or President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney. To be inconsistent in the matter demonstrates questionable fairness.

For argument's sake, Obama IS president, while Romney WAS governor, so it is accurate as it is. Should it be "Former governor ..."?

Alex Parker 2 years, 2 months ago

The Associated Press refers to Romney either as "Mitt Romney" or "Republican nominee Mitt Romney." So that's what we're going with. It's not an issue of fairness; it's an issue of style and consistency. We are consistent in referring to Romney this way in our coverage. If Romney were still governor, we would use his elected title.

So, just out of curiosity, Alex, when you talk about Jimmy Carter or Bill Clinton, do you use THEIR former titles, or just Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter?

Just wondering if you're going to be calling the guy Barack or former president Obama in a couple of weeks.

Hill sort of threw the Mope under the bus recently. "..WASHINGTON — The State Department said Tuesday it never concluded that the consulate attack in Libya stemmed from protests over an American-made video ridiculing Islam, raising further questions about why the Obama administration used that explanation for more than a week after assailants killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans. The revelation came as new documents suggested internal disagreement over appropriate levels of security before the attack, which occurred on the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks on the U.S..." http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/embassy-in-libya-sought-and-received-extension-of-security-team-beyond-scheduled-deployment/2012/10/08/1482a77e-11a8-11e2-9a39-1f5a7f6fe945_story.html

You do know that thinking people stop reading your comments as soon as they see "mope," don't you? Boring, childish and repetetive. Yawn.

Why did your GOP have a hand in killing our American Ambassador? "Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) acknowledged on Wednesday that House Republicans had consciously voted to reduce the funds allocated to the State Department for embassy security since winning the majority in 2010"

"For the past two years, House Republicans have continued to deprioritize the security forces protecting State Department personnel around the world. In fiscal year 2011, lawmakers shaved $128 million off of the administration's request for embassy security funding. House Republicans drained off even more funds in fiscal year 2012 -- cutting back on the department's request by $331 million.

Consulate personnel stationed in Benghazi had allegedly expressed concerns over their safety in the months leading up to the Sept. 11 attacks that killed four Americans, including Amb. Chris Stevens. Chaffetz and Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), who chairs the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, claim those concerns were ignored."

Well I certainly hope she protects the White House better than she did our ambassador.

beatrice 2 years, 2 months ago

I'm sure you said the same about Condolezza Rice when more than 3,000 Americans were killed on American soil on Sept. 11.

somedude20 2 years, 2 months ago

I pitty the fool.......Tell your GOPers to stop KILLING Americans!!!

President Obama will win re-election. I have correctly picked the winner of every presidential general election since 1964. Just sayin'. I thought my streak was in jeopardy with Bush vs Gore but unfortunately it continued.

But will it be Hillary or Rubio in 2016?

Thomas Bryce 2 years, 2 months ago

If Rubio were to defect and get on the Ballot as Vice Presidential Candidate to Presidential Candidate, Hillary Clinton, I would say the odds would be in there favor. I just don"t see Rubio as a Defector and no one is sure if Hillary will run. If the Republicans Nominate Rubio as a Presidential Candidate(assuming Romney looses this election) that has to run against Hillary, My money is on her.

Thomas Bryce 2 years, 2 months ago

There is not one LEGITIMATE news outlet that supports this claim.

Why am I not suprised that a supporter of Romney-Ryan likes to make stuff up?

Seth Peterson 2 years, 2 months ago

Would they be like the riots used by Bush supporters when Gore won the election in order to sway pollings in Bush's favor?

And if there is one thing you know about, it is about being "retracted," isn't it?

Thomas Bryce 2 years, 2 months ago

Excuse me, but, what prompted the removal of Agnostik"s Post? What part of the User Agreement was violated? It was pretty tame compared to some of the other postings I have seen on these forums that were let alone. Would like to know so I don't inadvertently violate the agreement myself.

I nominate Ms. Hendricks. With skills like hers, things tend to just fall into place

Not so: "For the past two years, House Republicans have continued to deprioritize the security forces protecting State Department personnel around the world.

Snap, are we supposed to never forget that you like to repeat yourself, posting the same thing on multiple stories, or that you like made up bs?

Why are so many conservatives comfortable with lying and liars?

Flap Doodle 2 years, 2 months ago

After I've posted the same text hundreds of times, I'll take that knock.

beatrice 2 years, 2 months ago

How many times have you used the "mope" line? "disappointed progressives"? "sinister side of the aisle"?

You repeat yourself more often then a pull-string toy.

Flap Doodle 2 years, 2 months ago

What did you post that got disappeareded earlier today, ag?
