Sorry Wilson, we have to clean up another Democratic mess. First Carter, then Clinton and now Obummer. By the way you racist pig, it seems you have an awful lot of time on your hands. Are bellying up to the Obama trough?
H.E. Pennypacker October 23, 2012 at 03:43 PM
I wish I could find one, just one, intelligent liberal. These ding bat dunderheads don't understand simple terms, they don't understand bankruptcy, they don't understand much.
John Wilson October 23, 2012 at 03:58 PM
Brian Dey - "Bankruptcy doesn't mean to dissolve a company." Of course, you are right; bankruptcy means a company has so much profit laying around that they have to petition congress to create more places to place their money in. You loincloth wearing forks sure are intelligent...
Craig October 23, 2012 at 04:37 PM
How can Obama create jobs when he has never had one?
Brian Dey October 23, 2012 at 04:41 PM
Wilson- For being so ignorant, you sure are cocky. Bankruptcy is debt reorganization in most cases and doesn't dissolve a company unless they cannot get an arbitrated agreement to reorganize. Such was the case with GM and Chrysler. As usual, you are clueless. The only reason Obummer stepped in was to protect the UAW from having to open up their contract, which would have occurred in a usual bankruptcy case. Like usual, Obummer was doing a favor for the union that poured millions into his campaign. But under his plan, those not covered by the union were exposed to loss of jobs, loss of pensions, etc... Keep opening up your mouth so we can keep putting your foot in it.

Lyle: I just want to be clear. You do know we have ships that aircraft can land on? You do know that this is an important and integral part of our military capability? How would we fight a war in the opposite hemisphere without them? Our catapults can't reach Iran.
Craig October 23, 2012 at 04:43 PM
Lyle: How did it make you feel when Obama went on an apology tour and never said boo to Isreal? Do you think your home country is safer now?
Craig October 23, 2012 at 04:47 PM
No Bren it is not. Claiming the US dictates too much to other Countries is a treasonous act. This is BHO's foreign policy, weaken the US to embolden the Arab resolve.
Craig October 23, 2012 at 04:50 PM
The liberal kool aid must be laced with LSD. Obama came off as a pissant, this will cost him votes. Can't wait for the next polls to come out!
John Wilson October 23, 2012 at 06:30 PM
Brian Dey - I am just sort of wondering what astounding number of excuses my low forehead, irrational loincloth wearing friends are going to be offering for the defeat of Robot Willard on November 6. I know the LIBERAL MEDIA will be a top contender, picking Lyin’ Ryan as a running mate, as will the debates where Willard got less time, but threw out many more words that were more ignorant. I do really suspect that in the final analysis these cretins will simply conclude – they always do – that they JUST WERE NOT CONSERVATIVE ENOUGH… Yeah, that is why the American electorate rejected your candidate… Just stick with that and all you folks will be starting a new Republican Party on Newt’s Moon Colony!
Brian Dey October 23, 2012 at 07:31 PM
Wilson- Why don't you try something different and try to gather up some semblance of intelligence. I know it might be hard, but you just might have something to offer. The polls (numerous) Have Romney at a solid 191 electoral votes and Obama 186 electoral votes. Solid is described as consistent leads above the margin of errors. Romney is leading above the margin of error in Fl. and most experts say that will go Romney. It is dead even in PA and OH and Romney having slight leads in CO and NV, on a steady trend upward for Romney. That brings the electoral vote count to 278. WI is also trending upward with the latest Gallup poll at 48 - 47 Obama, but in a three week trend Romney erased a double digit advantage in a mostly red state. Even losing WI, it is 278. And we are not even counting Virginia with Romney holding a 6 pt. lead. If WI and VA swing Romney, Romney can lose either Ohio or Pennsylvania and still win with 276. The important note is that all states mentioned here were considered weak Obama and have trended Romney since the debates began. Those are the facts Wilson. Independents are moving Romney in every swing state. This almosts mirrors the 1980 Reagan/Carter race. If it turns out the same, you are looking at 306 Romney, or a landslide. I'm not predicting that to happen, but I stand by 278.

2 Weeks from today you will see the following: Uninstalling Obama Administration █████████████▒▒▒ 90% complete.
CowDung October 23, 2012 at 09:58 PM
Obama is claiming to have added 5.2 million jobs. Unfortunately, the number is only 325,000... "In a new TV ad, President Obama makes an inflated claim to have added 5.2 million new jobs. The total added during his time in office is actually about 325,000." http://news.yahoo.com/obama-inflated-jobs-claim-184609682--politics.html It's pretty bad when left leaning Yahoo News is pointing out Obama's lies...
John Wilson October 23, 2012 at 10:06 PM
Brian Dey - I am NOT going to argue about all your speculative numbers; my post was regarding what the Republican Party will do, when Robot Willard and Lyin' Ryan loses... Hey, take your MAGICAL THINKING along with Boffa and FEEL that you folks will WIN... that's one scenario. [YOURS] I have given MINE! Write to me on [PATCH] November 7, and we will have something to [REALITY] discuss... YOU are just NOT CONSERVATIVE ENOUGH! Lose the loincloths completely; pick up your women romancing clubs and start worshipping fire… that is a good start. Actually, that really isn’t such a large step at all for you folks…
oak creek resident October 23, 2012 at 10:12 PM
@Lyle WTF are you talking about!!?!? Romney and Obama are pretty close on how to handle most foreign affairs. Except for that part where Obama BOWS to Muslim Kings, kisses their hand. Neo-con? I'd rather be a neo-con than a limp wrist lib.

Craig, I have done the work for him. Here is a link for one way, for the whole family. Sorry but to keep costs down I went with coach. http://www.asaptickets.com/result-page/economic/1449324/1319243.html?line=%28800%29+981-1864&clientsource=MFS%3A+africa_EAfrica_countries&time=1351031448
John Wilson October 23, 2012 at 10:43 PM
Boffa – GM & Chrysler were both at the brink of shutting down; they had no money, no one in the private arena wanted to touch them, not even Bain, the consummate vulture Capitalist. They were DEAD. Filing for Chapter 11 only prolongs the agony, as it all has to be APPROVED by the COURTS; no court would have approved their Chapter 11 Bankruptcy plan as the only way they could restructure – seeing, as no one would give them or loan them any money – was to sell off all their assets. Put another way, they had NO VIABLE way to stay in existence unless the Great President Obama got them TAXPAYER MONEY, as the entire private sector had abandoned them. Filing for Chapter 11 is FINE; getting a bankruptcy judge to APPROVE the PLAN is something else entirely. [I am sure the creditors would have been happy to see their money go away, while GM & Chrysler went through year of plans, not paying them anything.] Yes, this could have strung itself out over many years, as they brought forth ever greater stupid plans to get the judge to approve their plan; during those years of submitting further stupid and unworkable plans for approval, everything would have fallen apart… President Obama saved the automotive manufacturing base in America; Robo Willard would have had it all sold off in pieces, and made 1.5+ million people unemployed. Now, as he is headed to planet Kolob, he wants to LIE and attempt to steal President Obama’s accomplishment… typical Republican…
John Wilson October 23, 2012 at 11:02 PM
Brian Dey – “Bankruptcy is debt reorganization in most cases and doesn't dissolve a company unless they cannot get an arbitrated agreement to reorganize.” There are many forms of bankruptcy, Chapter 11 reorganization is but ONE of them! “and doesn’t dissolve a company UNLESS they CANNOT GET AN ARBITRATED AGREEMENT TO REORGANIZE.” [Caps are mine.] What is it about these 2 companies, NOT BEING ABLE TO GET AN ARBITRATED AGREEMENT TO REORGANIZE that you & Boffa don’t understand? No court would grant them permission to REORGANIZE, as they never had a VIABLE PLAN! President Obama rescued them; Robo Willard and a few Republic sycophants, merely want to steal and claim credit for this accomplishment. Now that is IGNORANT!
Brian Dey October 23, 2012 at 11:22 PM
Wilson is soooooooo clueless and ignorant. Obama saved the UAW (for now). All he cared about was repaying a favor for the millions the union dumped into his campaign. So go belly up to the trough while you still can because Obama is going O-bye-bye.
John Wilson October 23, 2012 at 11:25 PM
oak creek resident – We know, YOU would hold out for hand-holding and walking in a small park, with the Saudi Prince, as Georgie Bush did… just think where that could lead a neocon like you…
oak creek resident October 23, 2012 at 11:52 PM
@John Wilson George Bush, despite his faults, was an American President. He did not BOW to the saudi's, unlike Obongo the apologetic coward. How can you even compare the two? Pathetic attempt. Obama = BOWING COWARD WUSS.

Colter95 October 27, 2012 at 06:42 PM
Consider these facts before you vote: 1. Is the economy better off now than it was four years ago? Based on the evidence, I'd have to say no. Wages are down, the the prices of everything we buy is up. The price of gas has doubled. Good jobs are scarce. 2. Are the slight "up tics" in the economy a solid trend in the right direction? I don't think so. First, the gains are very slight. Second, I believe they are the result in the temporary stimulus by the Federal Reserve, in which they printed a lot of new money. It provides a slight bump now, but the cost will come later - after the election. Ben Bernanke is trying to save Obama's job, along with his own. 3. The continual misrepresentation of Romney on the auto bailout by the Obama administration. Obama appears to be taking complete credit for the bailout, while simultaneously saying that Romney was for liquidation of the auto industry. This is an absolute falsehood. It was Bush who initiated the bailout and TARP. Obama continued it and then expanded it, to his credit. However, Romney was one of the first to say that the industry needed to go through bankruptcy reorganization, and eventually they did exactly that. He also said that any needed loans should come from the private sector. He never said that the industry should be liquidated, or that he would deny federal funds if he were president, and private sector funds were not available. Obama lies! 4. The Benghazi coverup and lies.
Watts October 27, 2012 at 08:23 PM
Or simply consider that nothing in the Coulter95 post is actually true and it shows the desperation with which the Republican party is willing to deceive people.
James R Hoffa October 27, 2012 at 08:29 PM
@Watts - How much are the liberal/leftist/Democrats paying you to troll a SE Wisconsin Patch site from Belmont Shore-Naples, California, spewing all of your crap?
CowDung October 27, 2012 at 08:35 PM
To be fair, Coulter95 also shouldn't be spamming up a SE Wisconsin forum--they are from Virginia...
Watts October 28, 2012 at 05:29 AM
Past little Jimmy Hofa's bedtime. He is getting cranky.
Jim Price October 28, 2012 at 06:15 AM
Patch has nearly 900 community news websites across the country and welcomes comments from all of them and from outside of them.
JMB October 28, 2012 at 12:00 PM
Watts nice response, you don't refute the info. How about tackling this with some cut & paste talking points from the DNC. Why didn't the Commander-in-Chief make the call to save the Libyan Ambassador and the Navy Seals and others. He had real time info from drones, the assets were in the area. This took place over 7 hours!!! They blamed it on a video- lies. Hillary was right when the phone rings at 3AM what will Obama do. Well he didn't answer the call. He did go jetting off to Vegas. Just like the past 4 years. Imagine if that was your son in harms way, do we really want apology tours, bowing and missing 50% of the security meetings. Obama's campaign slogan should be weak on the economy, non existent foreign policy but give me 4 more years to try to get it right. We can't afford 4 more years of this. I don't care if America votes for Romney or against Obama, just get him out of the oval office.
