A person with integrity or any morals would never do it. Obama popped up out of no where, and will disappear in the same way.

The Obama camp must be livid with Joe "Shoot Your Mouth Off" Biden for this. Mr Falcone writes that one benefit might be that it will energize his base. His own base is not the one he should have considered. The people who are motivated to vote for Obama because of this decision were already going to vote for him anyway. It will gain him few, if any, votes from that quarter. It will cost him many votes among the moderates who have consistently voted AGAINST this issue when it has appeared -- especially in the key swing states like Ohio, Missouri, Pennsylvania and Florida. And, lastly, if any base is energized by this decision, it will be the conservative base. They may not have been eager to vote FOR Mitt Romney but they will flock to the polls in droves to vote AGAINST this decision. Doing this was a terrible mistake for Obama.

Most if not all truly think that it entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

He talks about loosing 700 jobs when he has spend and lost billions of taxpayers money & jobs on failed Solyndra and other big donor projects. This ad only reminds me of how bad his so called investments in the future have been. Where is the pipeline? That's at least 20,000 jobs he refuses to make.
