Obama's whole campaign is a shell game with the economy under one shell and
nothing under the others. It's all slight of hand and distractions with
this guy. He is a lousy leader without a plan.
Romney said in a debate that he'd support a ban on all abortion, period. He
told Huckabee he supported a Personhood Amendment which would ban all abortions,
no exceptions. He picked a VP who supports those kinds of measures and he's
running in a party whose platform supports banning abortion with no exceptions.
It's perfectly reasonable to go after Romney/Ryan on all this. The only
thing unreasonable would be to suggest they share Akin's gross lack of
scientific knowledge about when pregnancy can occur. But as for his views on no
abortion period? It's a valid criticism. Of course, Romney has
frequently noted the common exceptions as things he considers to be valid
exceptions for abortion. Leave it to Romney to take both sides of the issue.
@4601Before accusing others of ”stooping” lets take a look at
your claims about the deficit and who did what shall we?In the 2009
fiscal year — the last of George W. Bush’s presidency —
federal spending rose by 17.9% from $2.98 trillion to $3.52 trillion. Even if
you factor in the 38% that most believe Obama added to that years budget Bush
still added well over 9% in spending for 2009. In fiscal 2010
— the first budget under Obama — spending fell 1.8% to $3.46
trillion.In fiscal 2011, spending rose 4.3% to $3.60 trillion.
In fiscal 2012, spending is set to rise 0.7% to $3.63 trillion, according
to the The fiscal budget for 2013 — the final budget of
Obama’s term — spending is scheduled to fall 1.3% to $3.58
trillion.Over Obama’s four budget years, federal spending is
on track to rise from $3.52 trillion to $3.58 trillion, an annualized increase
of just 0.4%. Look it up for yourself at the office of management
There is a word that fits Romney in this instance: Karma.What goes
around, Mr. Romney, comes around. You get what you give. You reap what you
@utahbluedevil I wish I could like your comment twenty times. enough games
from both sides its time to grow-up.
This President of the United States of America has taken the Office of President
away from the Statesman type of office it has been for over 200 years. Since he
doesn't have a Vice-President he can trust to say the things the President
is saying without doing it in an embarassing manner, the President is out doing
what his people in Chicago can't do, elevate the topic and take the
Statesman away from his job. Even community organizers wouldn't stoop this
low to make a point that isn't true. Community organizers are to organize
communities, not turn them against each other and other communities. This
President will turn people against each other at any cost to get elected again.
His minions want their power for 4 more years to twist a nation that is supposed
to be indivisible and the President is sworn to keep that allegiance as our
President. He is to protect us against foreign and domestic enemies not make
our enemies our own citizens. He didn't have this problem 4 years ago as
he wasn't President of the United States of America. He can't balance
this act this time
You know.... I am done with it.... gonna vent here..... this has turned out to
be little more than having to listen to two siblings argue about who is gong to
get to ride shotgun.I am tired of hearing these two point out every
miss step of the other. I don't care anymore. I just want to see both
list out their top 5 priorities... thats all I want to see from these two yokels
going forward.I am tired of having comments in Sunday school by
people who think they have found the secret decoder ring and know about a super
secret agenda the President has that no one else has figured out. Really....
you all are just all that much more smart than everyone else? Good grief, give
it a rest. Lets talk about what we really can see, not what you heard online
from a guy whose sister has a friend that knows this guy who knows a doctor who
read the "affordable healthcare act" and found secret language that we
will be terminating all people once they become 70. Lets discuss
policy and focus on whats real.
It seem clear to anyone who reads of the Republican platform that the
republicans plan to gut social security just as they plan to gut medicare, food
stamps and any other program that will help the disadvantaged , and elderly. I
was stuck by a scripture in today's Sunday School lesson. It is Helaman
4:12. As it was read it sounded just like the Republican Platform. I was
struck by how close this scripture was to what the results of the republican
platform if carried out might be the results of the Republican platform.
I think linking Akin to Romney would be wrong..... but then again, this is
really all that has been said,]"Obama hasn't explicitly
linked Romney to Akin, but he said in an interview with The Associated Press
that the GOP candidate has locked himself into "extreme positions" on
economic and social issues and would surely impose them if elected
president."Economic and Social Issues... I guess that means
Akin? Say what Romney?No listen, I get it, and he was answering a
loaded question, that left Romney with little wiggle room. It was FoxNews for
crying out loud. As far as they are concerned by burnt toast this morning was
Obama's fault as well. I for not a second believe Romeny
supports Akin, and I don't believe Obama believes that either. But the nut
cases on either side will find what they will to uncover controversy where there
is none.How many more weeks do we have to go through this..... can
we just go ahead and have the election so we all can move on.
Akin is just one of the people that Mitt Romney needs to get away from. Greg
Norquest says all that he wants from a President is enough digits to sign off on
his agenda. If I were Mitt Romney I know what I would do with one of my digits.
That would really be humanizing.
Again, our only 'hope' is a third party. We need a party that not
only believes there needs to be a cut in taxes but new revenue to pay down the
debt as well as support worthwhile government programs. Healthcare end a good
education for ALL Americans is worthwhile. If you do need support and
assistance, you need to work for that assistance. There are plenty of things
for people to do that get government assistance. Sadly, we have no chance of
compromise with far left and far right extremists.
Romney will never ever have to get an abortion. Ever. But he wants to make sure
you can't, either. As us nons in utah know, you can call it smaller, less
intrusive government. It's not true, but you can call it that.
Women and Hispanics overwhelmingly favor Obama. Or is it that they just favor
Democrats.And is there a difference?Why might that be? Well,
The right wing of the GOP has been very vocal about their tough stance on
immigration. Need you wonder why Hispanics are not in the Romney camp?The GOP platform is that they feel that abortion should not be allowed, even
in the case of incest or rape.This may be the ONLY instance that I
know of where Romney has a slight difference with his party.And he has
only proclaimed That, in order to combat the carziness of Akin.Regardless, the GOP stance on the issue stands.And you wonder why Women
are not in the Romney camp?The GOP "has failed to demonstrate
the kind of leadership or seriousness voters deserve."Now, go
bring on Trump and Sheriff Joe as convention speakers while wondering why
Charlie Christ would say such a thing.C'mon GOP. Get a clue.
We need a viable GOP.
According to the Republican platform, women: if you are raped, you must carry
your rapist's baby to term. You must birth that baby and look at that
baby. And then decide whether you are going to give that baby up for adoption
or have a lifelong relationship with a rapist, who might battle you for
visitation or even custody. Make lemonade from lemons, as it were.
Is this what we want? Women? Where is your voice?
The Republican platform states that it wants to deny abortion to everybody, even
victims of rape. How can Mitt Romney deny that?
Sure and Romney's birther commnents are so above the belt. The GOP does
need to answer for it's abortion platform of making it illegal. What are they planning? Throw women in jail that have suspicious misscariages?
An investigation of every pregnancy in case it doesn't go full term? You have no idea how to inforce an illegal abortion law - yet
you'll support it anyway. Now people that are writing bills to make
abortion illegal are comming out with these statement like Akins that all rapes
are not equal.
Let me get this straight. Holding the head of the GOP ticket
accountable for the GOP's platform is "a sad new low?" Really? That makes no sense!A party platform is supposed to be
how you know where a candidate in the party stands on issues. That's why
it's called a "platform." There are some really odious
planks in the GOP platform, among them a demand that abortion be outlawed in
_all_ cases, with no exception for rape or to preserve the life of the pregnant
woman. If Romney disagrees with that plank of the platform (a
sensible and humane thing to do), then why do his representatives on the
platform committee give their (and by extension, his) support for that part of
the platform?Since when is it OK to be offended by being held
accountable for your own words?
I'm glad no one on the Republican side would stoop so low as to connect
Obama to things he has distanced himself from - such as the comment about Mrs.
Romney never working a day in her life....Oh, wait.....
Mr. Obama's plan to "kill Romney" and divert attention from a
floundering economy, crushing national debt and other massive failures is his
only hope. Based on statistics alone, Mr. Obama previously conceded that he
should be a one-term president.
hard to imagine that obama and his buddies could sink lower than they already
have. can't wait for him to be back at c.o. in 5 months.
