@spring street - for one thing, if the president is incompetent as you say, he
probably deserves quite a bit of blame. For another, I never said it was
dignified to blame anybody. I never applied any logic - I merely made a
statement of fact that every, and I do mean EVERY, candidate running against an
incumbent blames the incumbent for things they perceive are wrong. Blaming
Romney, as though he made up that tactic, is so devoid of logic that calling it
"weak logic" is insulting to run-of-the-mill weak logic.Say what you will about George Bush, he didn't stoop to blaming Democrats for
every failing of the country. He didn't respond in kind when Pelosi and Reid
insulted him every chance they had. It's undignified for an incumbent,
especially the POTUS, and Obama stoops to blaming others in every speech he
George,* Adding six trillion to the debt is ok?* Building auto
plants in other countries with our tax money, is ok?* stopping the
Canadian oil pipeline is ok? Preventing tens of thousands of jobs.*
telling us to sacrifice, than taking several expensive vacations on our dime, is
ok?You have low expectations. A great president leads by example.
Maybe you should whine and demand better. This is disgusting.
@letsdebateits dignified to blame the incompetent president for
everything? that seems like weak logic to me.
Politics is so dumb. Mitt is pro - life. Mitt is anti abortion choice. This has
been the case for many years but his attackers need to play politics and go back
and say ... oh look he didn't used to be pro life. WHO CARES WHAT HE USED TO
BE???? Ronald Reagan changed his views and even his political party for crying
out loud!! I would rather have someone who CAN change their views over time
rather than someone like Obama who NEVER changes regardless of circumstances.
Obama will NEVER change from his far left radical views no matter the impact on
the country. That is a non starter.
@George - blaming the incumbent is the strategy of every single person running
to unseat the incumbent. Get real. When you are the incumbent, constantly
blaming others and pointing fingers is horribly undignified.
@worf"not whining and finger pointing." you mean like whining
because Obama does not follow your wishes and blaming Obama for everything under
We currently have a president who never admits his mistakes. Blames others.Mitt is water to a thirsty man. Like other great leaders, he recognizes
mistakes, and corrects them. We need honest men, not whining and finger
...Whether you agree with it or not, President Obama did state that he would
close GITMO in one years time... As commander and chief he could have done this
with a wave of his little finger...Nothing that Mitt Romney has said or done is
as blatantly deceptive as this...not even close.
here comes another wind someone tether romney.
The real issue here is whether personal beliefs make good government policy, and
THAT is where Romney changed his statements about abortion. He was governor of
a heavily Democrat state where the state supreme court had made a strong
pro-abortion ruling that he stated he would uphold -- as he was legally
obligated to do. Now as a Presidential candidate, he is under no such
obligation and is in a different arena. He has not changed his personal opinion
on abortion.Besides, if changing one's opinions from time to time
were to disqualify a presidential candidate, it would disqualify all sane,
Romney is an ambitous politcian who is comfortable on either side of the fence.
He can be whatever voters what him to be; if they will just vote for him, just
don't expect him not to flip flop after he gets the vote.
Give it 24 hours.
This week anyway.
'Romney insists he's 'pro-life' candidate' - Title Yeah.
Now. **'Dems Attack Romney on Abortion, Personhood' - By ABC News -
11/03/11 "Romneys position on abortion, while it has appeared
to change dramatically since his time as Massachusetts Governor and a Senate
candidate in that state, still provides for exceptions for rape, incest and
cases where the mothers life is in danger." But calling into
question Romney's ever changing stances is not even a PARTISAN thing
anymore... **'Newt Gingrich hits Mitt Romney on abortion in South
Carolina ad' - Washington Post - 01/10/12 Not even on just
abortion: **'Mitt Romney pledges opposition to gay marriage' - CBS
News - 08/04/11 Then: 'It's also notable because Romney
was not always such a strong opponent of gay rights. In 1994, he sent a letter
to a gay Republican group saying he would be a stronger advocate for gay
rights...' - Same Article So, for Mitt Romney to claim he is a
'values' canidate is moot. Because we have NO way to know what those
'values' are going to be!
