Clearly you didn't hear Gabby Douglas give all the credit to God.


You didn't hear it, did you? You must not have.

Clearly you haven't heard him credit his MOM and all those other people for his success.

I do not understand the reluctance of the anti Obamas to recognize that infrastructure or the lack thereof contributed or detracted from their business success.      How many businessess would be successful without a working community sewage system?





It's easy to understand when you realize that it's not about infrastructure at all, but about trying to make people believe that President Obama was "demonizing" businessmen.


Apparently it's working.


and by businessman  they have Mitt Romney as their prime example.    What is it about Romney that requires such coddling as if he could break.       when did his tender sensibilities come into play during his long slog to the successful businessman.

Alert!  Gail, here is another shocking but true..


Ryan Lochte used the Olympic pool for purposes other than swimming


sports.yahoo.com/blogs/olympics-fourth-p...


 Ryan Lochte is like every other competitive swimmer who's donned a Speedo and goggles: He sometimes uses the pool as a restroom. Unlike every other competitive swimmer who's donned a Speedo and goggle, Lochte has done it on the sport's biggest stage: At the Olympics.


The 11-time Olympic medalist admitted to "Access Hollywood" that he went No. 1 in the pool in which he was later crowned No. 1 in the 400 IM.


"I did in warm-up," he told Ryan Seacrest. "I think there's just something about getting into chlorine water that you just automatically go."


He stressed that he doesn't do it in competition because -- why would you go during competition? If you can't hold it for 1 minute, 52 seconds, then you have bigger problems with which to contend. So the warm-up pool is likely not where you were thinking.


Is Lochte gross for doing this? No, not at all. Using the pool in that way is as much a part of swimming as dryland, early morning practices, throwing kickboards and complaining about how cold the pool is.


Lochte isn't ashamed. Nor am I. Nor are the hundreds of thousands of competitive swimmers who have done the same. I haven't been a competitive swimmer in over a decade, but I coached for a long time after and can safely report nothing's changed. Everyone does it. There's a name for swimmers who say they've never gone in the pool: Liars.

what was it called on this forum?   the freudian slip that will not die..............



Romney in his first book, Turnaround, published in June 2004.



Athletes in the 2002 Winter Olympics “didn’t get here solely on your own power. … For most of you, loving parents, sisters or brothers, encouraged your hopes, coaches guided, communities built venues in order to organize competitions.… All Olympians stand on the shoulders of those who lifted them.”


-- Romney speaking to Olympians at the 2002 Winter Games.

The opposite of that is called "Social Darwinism," but I don't think Darwin ever said nothing about that.
