Jones doesn't have an agenda, unless you consider living by "certain foundational points" in the Christian Bible, like "God is the creator of mankind," an agenda. "If you call those Christian values, of course the answer would be yes.'' Terry Jones has a very fanciful agenda.

And just like the other candidates, he's asking for your vote, Florida.

Romney — 0, Obama — 0, Jones — 1.

Our road trip winds down on a cool-for-Florida fall evening at the 120-year-old Lake Eola Park in downtown Orlando, "The City Beautiful." There are more runners tonight than usual circling the 23-acre lake — exercising really is so much enjoyable when the humidity's not suffocating.

Diana Rodriguez, a quirky 22-year-old architecture student from nearby Seminole State College with bottom-lip rings and oversized, clear, plastic-framed glasses, is voting for Barack Obama. "I like equal rights for everyone," she says, "and that's what he's advocating."

Not far away, Hector Miranda, a service-engineering manager at Disney, and Laura Long, a sales professional, are debating the candidates. "I'm going to vote for Obama," Miranda says, his face widening as an infectious smile naturally escapes him. "He acquired a mess. I don't give an A; I give him a C on his last four years — passing grade. He's done a lot."

Long shoots him a flirty glance of disapproval and quickly fires back. "I'm most definitely voting for [Mitt Romney]," she says. "Barack is a very charismatic gentleman; I can appreciate that. He's likable, and I'm not saying he hasn't done good things. But I believe in Mitt Romney."

As Romney and Obama make their final push for the Sunshine State's coveted 29 electoral votes, each campaign will try to obstreperously drown out the other party's message.

Pro-Obama ads outnumbered favorable Romney spots by a little more than 2,000 the week of October 15 to 21. Then the pro-Romney superPAC Restore Our Future kicked off a nearly $18 million multistate ad buy on October 23, including $4 million in Florida.

So how will Tuesday's vote end? Our unofficial, unscientific poll has Romney winning Central Florida and perhaps the nation in a landslide, 15 to 7. (Jones' Muslim-hating agenda drew a pathetic single vote.)

So maybe that tells you something. Then again, who in hell knows what is really gonna happen?

well comparing my notes on these things i find it difficult to see how anyone can be so supportive on such short notice - and i don't care who anyone actually VOTEs for - just that they VOTE - period


all politicians are self-promoting grandstanders who sling mud - there is too much money in it to be CIVIL anymore


NONE of our founding fathers would QUALIFY for public office today ! NONE ! NO ONE !


truth is: wE aRE brOKE - and just like a chicken still runs around immediately AFTER it's head is cut off, it's going to soon meet it's demise - just like the USofA and "we the people" today without any possible hope for the future


if you think a politician, any politician, gives a damn about YOU are delusional


JESUS only saw elected officials as a necessary evil to overcome civil disorder with laws and anticipate needs with resources used efficiently OTHERWISE a person could just go off into the wilderness and live unattached and disinterested and self-sustaining on one's own which is impossible today because everyTHING is owned by someone who want rent


How about covering some breaking news tomorrow?  On September 11th, there was a terrorist attack on our under-protected Embassy in Benghazi.  It was Al Quada, and they murdered our Ambassador, and three other people, including two Navy Seals who refused to stand down after three requests to the White House, State Department, etc. to send help.  


Obama and Hillary Clinton (and others) watched real time and refused to send anybody, watching Ty Woods be murdered on video.  Then they blamed it on a silly video riot which never happened.  They lied about in for six weeks - still refuse to talk about it.  Answer any questions at all.  Rather than do a press conference regarding the deaths, Obama packed up and went campaigning in Vegas, then to Denver.  Then to  the East Coast for the hispanic vote.  I know that sounds like treason.  And it is.  Everyone in the know understands they're buying time until 11/6, stonewalling.  But American people should know what a coward and liar their president is so they can see him for the unpatriotic self-centered and arrogant person he is. Why did he do it?  According to first rate patriotic sources, Obama's campaign was about getting binLaden, destroying Al Quada and that the millions we have to Libya were worth it because they're now our "friends and a terrorist attack was not acceptable  (A few of our Libyan "security friends" assisted Al Quada is the timeline.  How fun!) 


Obama and his staff allowed U.S. citizens to be murdered on U.S. soil for political purposes.  They knew that Obama couldn't win the re-election if the truth got out , so they covered it up, in as disgraceful a manner as possible  Right now, four people are dead (one sodomized before he died), leaders who are whistle-blowers are being relieved of their command, Obama administration announced true American hero Ty Woods who (after 7 hours) could no longer stomach the idea that our president would let these people have a death sentence, and his lost own life in the rescue that did save 20 people,,,this hero is not going to get a pension because he was recently retired.  You know, all that $1,000,000,000,000 lost green energy money given to his supporters has us in a pinch.


 Oh! And the innocent guy they blamed that bogus video on?  They perp-walked him and he's still in jail right now.


I think (and hope) Mitt Romney wins and throws Obama's happy ass out on the street.  Either way, there is a rallying cry being heard around the world. And it's from the Navy Seals whose motto is "No Man Left Behind".  Obama's White House sanctioned Facebook,  not allow the Seals to tell their story,in a depicable act of a dictator, but this is too big to be contained much longer, there are three scandals of epic proportions on his hands.   Leon Panetta, Patreas, Clinton, Obama, Biden...despicable actions won't go silently to the background. Oh!  The rallying cry:



BTW, the Navy Seals are furious over Obama using them for political gain and campaigning about  getting binLaden in his re-election.  That wasn't the understanding, that wasn't the deal.  He didn't get binLaden, and the GM bailout?  Lucky him if he gets re-elected...he gets bail them out again!  They're on the verge bankrupty and taxpayers will forever have lost $254 million dollars on that "bailout". 


What, if anything, in the above story do you or your liberal readers not believe?  I could continue, but karma on this one will be fast and furious.  Maybe not until after 11/6, but it will come.  


Right this wrong of 2008 and vote Romney/Ryan. I dedicated my vote for Mitt Romney to fallen American hero Ty Woods.  Consider doing the same.


Now get out there and cover this atrocity.  Your government betrayed you.  The only people who didn't get the truth were the American people.  Al Quada and everyone else knew.  Barack Obama has double-crossed America for four're gong to hear about two big stories, probably by friends.  One is mass fraud in the green energy payouts (Obama) and two agencies (today) have put video and evidence into senator's hands to explode this lie.  While people have demanded Obama answer questions and release the drone video, he has said  "it's under investigator and will be addressed after the election" and "the video/audio tapes are classified".  So Intel on the ground has found some extra copies.

Jesus was a Liberal ... and a Jew.




 @bcconfidential Strange all the attention now on these four victims, but no mention of the thousands of dead soldiers and innocent civilians of the illegal and completely unnecessary Iraq war. Smells like desperation.
