Free Forum Friday September 16th Edition

President Obama spent the week stumping his jobs plan. He basically double dared the Republicans to diss the plan knowing full well that if they did it would blow back on them.

Obama’s renewable energy plans took a big blow when one of the companies that benefitted from some of the investment money; Solyndra,  went belly up and laid off 1,100 workers.

Republican presidential nominees had a field day picking on each other. The media has pretty much decided that it’s a race between Rick Perry and Mitt Romney however, President Jimmy Carter says that it doesn’t matter because Obama is in little danger of losing the election despite all the bad press.

It looks like Libya will soon be a free country. Ghadaffi has reportedly left Libya for the country of Burkina Faso near the Ivory Coast. Now most of Northern Africa will be self governed. Will Syria follow?

Football season is off to a good start. ROLL TIDE!
