  3. Obama is a foreign affairs nightmare!

    So Obama now calls Romney "reckless" and "amateurish" on international affairs. For Obama to call Romney reckless on foreign policy is like saying that "The health care bill will not increase the deficit by one dime." or that there were "No Earmarks in the $787 Billion Stimulus". Obama's own massive blunders have shown up more recently in the absolute failure in the Libya attack. His only concern has been to improve his image at the cost of the lives that were lost. To this day, the truth is still hidden from the American people.

    I don't want a queer uncle Sam, which is what Obama wants and which is bad for America. The queers say they want equal rights, but that is not true, they can marry someone of they opposite sex just like everyone else. What the gay queers want are special rights, but rights should not be granted based on behavior, only restricted based on negative behavior: incarcerate a thief, rapist, murderer, etc.

    President Obama says "Romney is reckless on foreign policy", of course he is, he doesn't have any "skin" in it because his five(5) sons are sitting on the couch right next to him safely tucked away from harms way.

    Fast and Furious the Israelis with U.S. weapons?
    We don't know who we are working with in Syria. Some of the fighter there are aligned with Al-Qaeda and Hezbollah so some part of the weapons that are distributed to the Syrian "freedom fighters" might end up in the hands of parties that are interested in destabilizing Lebanon, one of the few moderate players in the region. Additionally, some of these same weapons may be used against Israeli soldiers and border guards.
