It's a brilliant statement, and so so true.


In Romney's case, add in his very name getting him through doors.

Where did the deficit come from? Why is it there?

Check it out:

The reality behind Obama and Bush’s ‘spending binge’

 That link didn't work for me, probably an iVillage problem. But really, we know Obama is spending out of control, and no tax increase can put a dent in that.

He is /was factually correct.  To achieve in the 2000's there are a lot of inventions that we take for granted.  We use them everyday and fail to acknowledge that someone invented those things we use.  It it ignorant people that were duped by the GOP's use of myth that caused the problem.

Who says climbing out of recession is quick or easy?  It took decades for the great depression to be worked out of!  The GOP wants the US to become another Banana republic with two classes poor and rich.

I'm especially troubled by his comments on Hispanics.On the wealth thing...

So what we actually have is those who control 93% of financial wealth pay 70% of taxes.

To Obama's credit, He will bail you out if you can't pay your debts!

 

Really?  Has he raised the amount of welfare funds per person so much that I could continue my way of life, stay in my house keep everything and just not pay my bills?  Did he invent bankruptcy?  Oops no, that's been around what, 40 years (total wild guess but I know it hasn't been invented by Obama in the last 4 years).  What has he done that would bail me out of my debts?

Oh, I'm talking about the Bill Clinton that was President of the United States, not the one you are thinking of. I think it made the news, but you can Google it if you never heard about it.

My DD is past college age. But she's in her childbearing years and if she decides to start a family, that decision ought to be up to her. Her husband has some say as well but since her body will be intimately (in every sense of the word) affected, it's HER decision first and foremost.

You really ought to look at who's backing recent legislative pushes: http://www.usatoday.com/news/health/story/2012-04-25/states-anti-abortion-legislation/54538866/1 Or you can read the Wikipedia link which gives a thumbnail analysis of the phrase "war on women". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_on_Women

From my POV, these developments are alarming for women, especially INDEPENDENT women who think they ought to have rights which include, but are not limited to reproductive choices. I didn't watch the Democratic Convention, nor did I watch the Republican Convention (too busy taking care of two properties on my own--that famous "independence") but I have been listening to and reading about events which transcend the speechifying of conventions. Those actions bespeak an intent to turn the calendar back over a half century by certain conservative groups. IMHO, any INDEPENDENT woman would be appalled by these recent developments.
