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?
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?
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.

the United States, are YOU happy with or regret the choice that you have made? Why? Why not?

We have two major political parties that would seem to stop at nothing to get or keep power. This was highlighted to me when my son and I went to see The Campaign. Who do you feel is the least scrupulous? Please try and be non-partisan here(joke of the day).

What do you think about Mitt Romney being the first president in U.S. History to have millions stashed in offshore Tax Havens. You know I saw this tonight and it really bothers me that we keep letting people like this run for the US President. I'll tell you right up front that I don't support the...

Recently, I have been reading reports about how President Obama's birth certificate is a forgery. According to one reporter, the white house has a PDF version of the certificate that is publically available. I looked at the certificate and something about the numbers struck me as odd. Then, I read...

harbinger of bad things to come? Do you believe that the economy will become worse as a result of President Obama's reelection? If you are a Democrat, do YOU regret voting for President Obama?

This is from FORBES. I am posting the whole article for your consideration:In tonight’s debate we saw a transformed Barack Obama, and it made a very big difference. In the first debate Governor Mitt Romney was relaxed and confident and in command; Obama was practically absent. Tonight, Obama was...
