2nd POTUS Debate: Romney says, "Some of my best friends are women."

    I hope that the ladies could see through the Daddy Warbucks style paternalism revealed in Mitt Romney's comments. When it came to women's issues and concerns, Romney gives lip service while the President provides legislative achievement and policy initiatives that 'walks the talk.' Saying that the greivances that women are concerned about are going to disappear in a Romney world of 'so called' expansion of jobs was deflecting at best and dishonest at worse.

    This guy goes from a 59 point plan to rescue the economy to 5. Is it not a strange coincidence that there are 5 'points' on the end of that appendage just below the ankle that he will ultimately place firmly into the glutumous maximus' of most everybody that do not have a family crest associated with their surname.

    That is my opinion what are your thoughts?

      I agree with you wholeheartedly. I am worried about many more issues, from Romney starting a war with Iran (worst case scenario, but very likely from his attitude) to a wholesale destruction of every U.S. social program (Social Security, SS disability, Veterans benefits, Medicare, Medicaid) because this wealthy man hasn't a clue what it's like not to have everything you want handed to you from birth.

      I'm a couple of years ahead of the Baby Boomers, but I hope that bloc of voters think about their retirement future and vote against Romney. By the time the 47% of the American population that Romney views with contempt votes against him, plus the Baby Boomers, plus enlightened younger people, plus intelligent people who don't believe everything their friend/relative/neighbor/preacher/Facebook "friend", etc. says without researching it for FACTS--I'm hopeful that President Obama and VP Biden will have another four years to work on undoing the destruction wrought by  the eight years the last Republican Administration befouled the White House.

        Hi, Jaye, thanks for weighin' in. Mitt is the plutocrats' plutocrat that recently adopts the language of middle class populism to reassure these unwashed that we need to trust him a put him in charge and all will be right as rain. His ideological and politcal stance has been all over the map, whatever it takes to lure enough of the unwary to the polls for their vote. He and his sort took the country to the precipice in 2008 and as the President says, 'I am not going down that road again!"

      These are two minute answers and you want the 59 points.
      Obama failed, he doesn't have anything in his record to run on.
      As for women's rights, why didn't Obama make Hillary Clinton his VP?

        I read that Obama pays his female staffers less. Don't know if that's true.

    Is it chauvinism or equality that  he lets his wife drive the jet ski?
    Notice he doesn't hold onto her, though.


    I'm a Baby Boomer and toward the end of the pack. You think I want to see decades of paying into SS and Medicare vanish before I get to the finish line?
    That may be the most selfish reason I would never vote for Romney.
    But hardly the only one or the most important one.

    P.S. I imagine what Mr. Romney means by "friends" are neighbors, former parishoners from his deacon days, and wives of business associates who hang out on their yachts together.
    How many women are high up in his campaign staff?

      MM, In almost every aspect of debate of the variety of topics under the sun I oppose Mitt Romney stance as naive, bellicose and insincere. I can never be persuaded to 'flip'

    My father died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in 2001 (God rest his soul.)  I would be willing to let Mitt adopt me now, as long as I share the wealth and get to drive the jet ski. I'd even call him "Daddy"! lol

    Today on The View, Ann Romney said that women will have a choice on who to vote for in this election. If they vote for Ronmey, it will be one of the Last CHOICE'S they get to make.
