Posted: Thursday, October 4, 2012 6:04 pm

Most DeKalb County residents responding to a Times-Journal Facebook question gave Republican challenger Mitt Romney the edge over President Barack Obama in Wednesday night’s first presidential debate of 2012.

There was some question going into the faceoff how many would be watching in DeKalb. In response to a Facebook question posted by the Times-Journal earlier this week, the majority of people did not plan on tuning in.

    Again you show your contempt for what the Founding Fathers wrote in the Constitution of the United States of America, while making excuses for those Republicans who allowed every one of those 800,000 ILLEGALS to enter this Nation, ILLEGALLY, and you deny you support those Republicans, don’t you ClarkBarkley?
    “There is no logical reason for him to be harboring criminals,”
    Yet, you are seeking to BLAME President Obama for the Sins of your Republican heroes, while seeking ot deny your support of those Republican Politicians, isn’t it nice, when a person is a LIAR and can be on both sides of an issue, with their LIES, ClarkBarkley?

    The TRUTH is your actions speak louder than your rhetoric, and you continue to worship President Reagan, the ONLY U. S. President to GRANT AMNESTY to more than 3 MILLION ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, when he signed the Bill to do so, November 6, 1986, and that’s was almost 4 TIMES more than President Obama allowed to stay in the United States of America, under the provisions of the plan he put forward, which was those Illegal Immigrants had to be in the United States for MORE than 5 years, and not be CONVICTED of a Crime.

    Yeah, I was worshiping Reagan at 2 years old. You're as sharp as a box of butter knives.

    For you to tell a person you aren’t a Republican, is like you telling them the sun rises in the West, isn’t it ClarkBarkley?

    Not quite. I don't affiliate myself with a party because if you stick to one side, then you're wrong at least half the time.

    For a person who it took 30 years to reach their FALSE CONCLUSION, is that person admitting they had no Morals or Character for 30 years, isn’t it ClarkBarkley?

    There's nothing false about my conclusion. These criminals need to go, every last one of them.

    President Obama stipulated, none of those ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS he was allowing to remain in the United States could have been CONVICTED of a CRIME, and hasn’t he kept his word on that ClarkBarkley?

    Whether they have officially been convicted does not matter. The fact that they are here means they are breaking our laws. There is no logical reason for him to be harboring criminals, I don't care how you try to spin it. And I don't think you want to get me started on Obama keeping his word about anything.

    The FACT is there are more than 1 MILLION FEWER ILLEGAL IMMGRANTS in the United States of America, than there was, Januarys 20, 2009, isn’t there ClarkBarkley?

    From what I have seen, Obama deported around a million during the first 3 years. But if he allows 800,000 to stay, that just about wipes out that million, doesn't it? And that doesn't even count the ones that have entered the country since then. So no, it's not a FACT. Not even your liberal spin can help you on that one.

    That’s about one-Fourth of the number President Reagan GRNATED AMNESTY, and how many children have been born to those More than 3 Million ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, President Reagan GRANTED AMNESTY, November 6, 1986, and therefore have become American Citizens ClarkBarkley?

    If one guy kills one person, and another guy kills 4 people, both of them are still murderers. Obama has allowed criminals to stay in our country, and that makes him every bit as guilty as Reagan or Bush.

    Are you advocating the Republican controlled State Legislatures, participate in Insurrection against what the Founding Fathers wrote in the Constitution of the United States, that each of those Republican politicians took an oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America, doesn’t that make them Criminals, and DISHONORABLE people who show their Disrespect for the Oath they were administered, ClarkBarkley?

    What about the oath that our president took to defend our borders? Somebody's gotta do it, and it's obvious he's not going to.

    The reason I'm not still blaming past presidents is because they no longer have the power to try to correct the situation. Our current president does, and he's made it obvious that he's every bit as corrupt as those republicans you hate so much.

    For you to defend your Republican Heroes who allowed most of those more than 12 MILLION ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS to enter this Nation ILLEGALLY, reveals the TRUTH about, who is “party whipped” doesn’t it ClarkBarkley?

    “Ok, so Reagan let them stay, Clinton let them stay (just because you won't acknowledge it doesn't mean it didn't happen), Bush let them stay, and now Obama's letting them stay.”
    The TRUTH is your Hero, President Reagan is the ONLY United States President to GRANT AMNESTY to more than 3 MILLION ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, isn’t that what the record reveals ClarkBarkley?
    “And I'm not blaming Obama for others' failures because he has plenty of his own to blame him for. And I've always given credit where credit is due. For the first 3 years, he was actually doing something right in getting rid of a couple hundred thousand of these cockroaches every year.”

    “Maybe if he wasn't off fundraising or playing golf, he could focus on the issues.”

    What was President Reagan, and President George W. Bush doing while those More than 12 MILLION ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS were entering the United States of America, ILLEGALLY ClarkBarkley?

    “Like I said before, when the president basically says that he's not going to worry about deporting people unless they are serious criminals, he has slapped us all in the face. They're all criminals, they became criminals when they crossed the border to steal from the hardworking citizens of this country. So when our leader says he's not going to perform his duty, someone that actually has a pair has to step up and get the job done.”

    I see you say our leader, which doesn’t include your Republican Heroes, who allowed more than 12 MILLION ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS to enter this Nation ILLEGALLY, shows your partisanship doesn’t it ClarkBarkley?

    “I don't hate what they wrote. But unlike you, the founding fathers were aware that they didn't know everything, so they left provisions for amendments.”
    Why wasn’t the Amendment to the U. S. Constitution, proposed during the Reagan administration, or the Bush/Cheney administration, as it usually takes several years for the States to adopt a Constitutional Amendment, doesn’t it ClarkBarkley?
    “They knew that times would change, and when your country is being invaded by leeches looking to steal the resources provided by and for citizens of this country, it's time to make a change.”

    Yet it took you 30 years to propose the States adopt a Constitutional Amendment to correct the mistakes of Republican Presidents for most of the last 30 years, doesn’t that reveal the TRUTH about you ClarkBarkley?

    Some people will never accept the reality, TRUTH about their Hero and “god” even after they renounce their “god” after his 8 years of FAILURES and him allowing more than 12 Million Illegal Immigrants to remain in the United States, on the day he left the White House, January 20, 2009, will they ClarkBarkley

    I'll say it once and I'll say it again.....hated Bush then, hate him now. But as far as 8 years of failures goes, your messiah Obama is halfway there!

    In reality President Obama only allowed about 6% of those who were here on the day President George W. Bush left the White House to remain in the United States under strict provisions, they must have been in the United States of America for MORE than 5 years and not have been convicted of a Crime, you NEVER complained when the Bush/Cheney administration and the Reagan administration allowed those more than 12 Million Illegal Immigrants to enter the United States of America, what are you a “Johnny come Lately” on those more than 12 Million Illegal Immigrants entering this Nation Illegally, so they could be employed by the Corporate Campaign Contributors of Republicans, ClarkBarkley? What does that reveal about you, being more than 30 years too late before you begin to HATE those illegal Immigrants, you and your comrades had no objection to as long as there was a Republican President benefitting from them being in this Nation ClarkBarkley?

    Once again, you mistake me for a republican. I've told you that several times, but since you're probably developing alzheimer's, I had to spell it out for you again.

    An honest person would realize who allowed those Illegal immigrants to enter this Nation ILLEGALLY, and act accordingly, rather than BLAMING someone they HATE for the FAILURES of their Republican Heroes and “gods” wouldn’t they ClarkBarkley?

    Ok, so Reagan let them stay, Clinton let them stay (just because you won't acknowledge it doesn't mean it didn't happen), Bush let them stay, and now Obama's letting them stay. And I'm not blaming Obama for others' failures because he has plenty of his own to blame him for. And I've always given credit where credit is due.

But then election year rolls around, and in his effort to beg the hispanic community for their votes, he bypasses congress with an executive order to let almost a million of these criminals stay.

    Those who are familiar with what the Founding Fathers wrote in the U. S. Constitution, realize, Protecting the Borders of the United States of America, and Enforcing the immigration Laws of this Nation, is the Constitutional Duties of the President of the United States of America, wouldn’t they ClarkBarkley?

    Ah yes, but what are we supposed to do when the president decides he won't do his duty anymore? Maybe if he wasn't off fundraising or playing golf, he could focus on the issues.

    In FACT those who worship those Republicans who have chosen to dishonor themselves by dishonoring their Oath of Office to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, are committing treason, when they take the U. S. Constitutional Law into their own hands and VIOLATE Article I, Section VI, of the U. S. Constitution, but don’t let that deter you from defending those people who are actually worse than those you refer to as “cockroaches,” ClarkBarkley.

    Like I said before, when the president basically says that he's not going to worry about deporting people unless they are serious criminals, he has slapped us all in the face. They're all criminals, they became criminals when they crossed the border to steal from the hardworking citizens of this country. So when our leader says he's not going to perform his duty, someone that actually has a pair has to step up and get the job done.

    Why do you HATE what the Founding Fathers wrote in the Constitution of the United States of America, ClarkBarkley?
    Being what you suggest above would involve amending the U. S. Constitution, and Congress doesn’t have the authority to amend the Constitution of the United States, without the approval of the States, do they ClarkBarkley?

    I don't hate what they wrote. But unlike you, the founding fathers were aware that they didn't know everything, so they left provisions for amendments. They knew that times would change, and when your country is being invaded by leeches looking to steal the resources provided by and for citizens of this country, it's time to make a change.

    “It was clear Obama was lost, dazed and confused,” Miranda Barnhill, of Fort Payne, said. “I think he was shocked that someone was actually standing up to him! Romney has his stuff together. We need someone to lead us, not to control us like Obama has been doing/trying to do!”
    Those who watched the Republican Primary debates, about 20 of them, they didn’t recognize the Mitt Romney that was on stage for the first General Election debate with President Obama, and anybody who had watched those Republican Primary debates would have been not only dazed but stunned at how Mitt Romney had advanced in his Etch-A-Sketch transformation from a Tea Party advocate to a Moderate Republican. Those who didn’t watch the Republican Primary debates, were deceived by the different Mitt Romney’s who advocated one thing to gain the support of th3e Tea Party and now he has abandoned, his Tea Party Positions in an effort to win the votes of moderate independents and moderate Democrats, is that the kind of DSIHONEST Politicians you want controlling the U. S. Government?

    @ClarkBarkley

    "They are a slap in the face to legal immigrants who spent the time and money to do things the right way."

    The past twenty years is not the first time an unwelcome flood of illegal aliens has been a problem for the United States. Back in the 1800's, during/after the potato famine in Ireland, America had an influx of illegal Irish and there were just too many to find, pack up, place on a boat and ship back. Hence why over half the last names in the Boston city phone book start with "Mc" or "Mac." One solution at that time was to let the men serve in the military and after 4 years of service they could apply for citizenship. I think that was a fair a solution to a near impossible problem.
    If the current illegals are willing to die for the country, I think they should have the chance to stay. We did it before and, unless you hate Irish, which, right or wrong, and I know some do, the plan worked. Other than spending billions, maybe trillions of dollars on law enforcement to kick and keep them out, other than punishing those who want them here, finding a fair way to let undocumented people live here seems like the sensible solution given the circumstances.
    Or, and this is my preferred solution, criminalize the hiring of illegal aliens and give an award for turning people in who use them. If you see your neighbor hiring an illegal to save a few buck on yard work, call the police and let your neighbor rot in jail for a few days. Business owners for sure will quit hiring them. No jobs, no money, no problem.

    To me this is one of those problems where the sensible solution is the least likely to happen. This due to the fact business owners are the largest campaign contributors. The last thing a business owner is going to do is give money to a candidate who passes laws to place them in jail for saving money. But if these aliens were truely unemployable they would go somewhere else. My thoughts anyway.

    tyger, do you really want to compare the candidates' religions? First off, they're not running for pastor of the united states, so why bring it up? Second, I'd take whatever craziness the Mormons come up with over someone who spent 20 years listening to Jeramiah "GD America" Wright.

    Obama was doing ok with me until this year when he decided to let about a million illegal cockroaches stay in our country for another couple of years. These folks should be deported, along with anyone who supports them. They are a slap in the face to legal immigrants who spent the time and money to do things the right way. If Obama wants to be surrounded by a flood of hispanics, maybe he should go run for president of mexico.
