**Republicans Mitt Romney & Paul Ryan for U.S. President & Vice-President
Why? I am voting for Romney-Ryan(R) because there are probably two Supreme Court vacancies coming up soon, and the last man I want filling those vacancies is Baraka Obama.
You want more?
OK. Compare and contrast:
Mitt Romney – has a Harvard Law Degree
Barack Obama – has a Harvard Law Degree
Mitt Romney – has a Harvard M.B.A

That's the title of an Op/Ed from the KC Star's token Conservative, E. Thomas McClanahan. He lays out an emotional plea as to why this whole Benghazi debacle stinks to h3ll:
