        Romney or any other viable candidate should be ahead of the POTUS if citizens would place emotions aside consider all his administration has NOT ACCOMPLISHED along with the udermining of the American Liberties his policies have trampled on.

      Yea...1 czar appoinments to curcumvent the Senate approval.
            2. Imposition of a health care boondoggle.And the sweetheart exemptions given to big labor with the cost to be on the 97% of Americans not represented by Unions.
            3. Forced Contraceptive mandate on religious institutions.
            4. Firing of the inspector general who exposed A.C.O.R.N. fraud within his cabinet.
             5. Instructing his A.G.to sue states who uphold Federal immigration law.
             6. Signing off to allow United Nations to control sea lanes and to be able to overrule the U.S. navy in matters of international crime intervention on the high sea's. As well as to limit oil exploration to not be allowed past the continental shelf.
              7. Instructing his A.G. to sue states who pass laws to protect against voter fraud.
               8. The stimulus that promised to create 2-3 Million SHOVEL READY jobs, with the money going into green energy boondogles that funneled the money back into the politicians pockets.
               9. The Auto bailouts that fattened the pockets of the UAW and wiped out the pension funds and 401K plans of thousands of citizens.
               10. The trillions he has spent while blaming bush will be on the backs of future generations.
               11. Bailing out Fannie and Freddie and thumbing his nose at the multi- million bonuses given to their chiefs.

        I'd need alot more time to list them all...but if you have to ask such a question I'm fairly confident your not persuaded with truth.

Hate speach has been the go to dialoge of this presidency, a theme he promised would not exist in his office, has devided the country more then its been since the civil war era. He said he would unite us all...whooohooo. The  spirit of a united country is floating on the breeze.

          The continuation Obama signed of the Patriot Act is an atrocity in and of itself.

          It was a violation of individual rights when it was put into place to begin and continues today.

          Obama claims to be on the side of the citizens, yet he isn't proving it. He claims to know what is in the best interest of this Nation and yet has failed to prove it.

          Obama claimed that he wanted to take down the "status quo" in America, and he has yet to do that either.

          Obama's pathetic idea about healthcare isn't going to help the country get affordable healthcare. The government cannot even operate itself on a budget which is within the means of the Nation. It has to borrow money, just to operate. It's broke and has been for a very, very, very long time now.

    Then you should realize that bigotry and racism is a mirror image of the 60's. And I was at Patterson High in NJ.  And bringing women back to that era also, attacking women with the vote by Republicans not to afford women equal pay today.

      paintphdposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Racism was a civil and humanitarian issue. Womens fight for equal pay is a social issue. They are not equivelent. Women are'nt being forced to use sepearate public facilities because they want more money. It's plenty of lawmakers on both sides of the isle that is in opposition to the fair pay act. Thier sticking point, among other things, is not as much the pay as it is the intrusion of privacy which allows everyones pay scale in the private sector to be on public display.

        A social issue? Equal rights are just like civil rights...a humanitarian issue.
        Actually it's the same.
        No, they are being forced to live on a scale "male" counterparts expect them to. And, that's not equal rights.
        I'm sure there are plenty who are against equal rights. Most men fear a powerful or equal woman.
        Intrusion of privacy? Discrimination should never remain private and should be on display for the general public, whenever possible.

          Most men does'nt have a problem with a strong woman, Most of us had strong mothers. Equality doesn't have to come at the cost of privacy. Privacy is also a right. Some Women owned corporations even have men who are paid more than the female counterparts. I make a living in the construction industry, and while there is a few women out there who can hoist a jack full of bricks up to the third jack of a scaffold, it's not many, and your not going to convince any of the men who can hoist the bricks, that the woman they are having to hoist those bricks for should have equal pay....unless she is really hot, or they're married to her, which seldom is the case.

            Really? lol You must know a lot men who are not alpha males or don't live in a city. lol
            You're correct equality hasn't anything to do with privacy. Equal right on the other hand do.
            And that would be discrimination.
            If the woman can do the job as well as a man, then she deserves to be paid like one.

          While we were born with the right to life ,liberty and the persuit of happiness, that means we can't be denied the same opportunity to improve our situation in life than the next man or woman. Life is not fair, and the government cannot make it so. It's the inherrent nature of humans to have their own things, and they had just as soon out do their neighbor, that's the reason socialism has never been successful. Humans are greedy, as well as envious of others. We have confused rights with desires.

          We weren't born with a right to equal pay.
          A right to see anothers pay scale.
          A right to read others mail.
          A right to force an employer to explain why they pay John more than Kate.
          A right to force a pharmacist to provide an abortion pill under conscientious objection.
          A right to play for the Mets with no athletic ability.
          A right to have my dog eat at the table with us at restaurants.
          A right that the government should take care of us in old age.
          A right to be wealthy.
          A right not to be poor.
          A right to not be passed over for a promotion.
          A right not to be hired or fired.
          A right not to be in debt.
          A right to not have our opinions disagreed with.
          A right to be beautiful.
          A right to be a Girl Scout if We're a boy.
          A right to have a paid maternity leave.
          A right to company funded healthcare.
          A right to be a boy scout if we're a girl.
          A right to have our contraception paid for by others.
          A right to own property.
          A right to own a person.
          While all of these desires are emotionally held beliefs by some...they don't cross the threshold as a right.
          So when we want a right, refer to an artical of the constitution and litigate it. When we have a desire...lets call it that. Gather those together with like minded desires and boycott the business who is denying your desire, and stop calling on the government to morph your desires into laws upon those who doesn't share your desires.

              Nobody cares what anyone does with their body...abortion, contrception, gender reassignment etc. Some people just doesn't wish to have the bill paid with their tax dollars. If the Obama 'War on Women' is derived from that, the joke is on those who subscribe to such giberish.

                Well just for starters that is just blatantly untrue, there are many many conservatives who want abortion, gender reassignment etc. to be illegal, I can point you towards plenty of them on hub pages, try Brenda for example (avatar is an eye)

                  I don't know what part of my position is so vague. I don't think government should be involved in pay issues of women or men outside of enforcement of the minimum wage. Business has enough government regulations without having to legitimize their pay scale to every female employee. The implications of such a law is mind boggling. It will give a license to litigate what women perceive as unfair pay to every female in the workplace. How will a formula ever be compiled that will satisfactorily lay out how each job will be measured on some sliding scale to compile a comparison of a womans abilities as compared to her male counterparts abilities. Companies would have to create positions for people to oversee womens pay scales to be sure no man in the company is being compensated more. Corporate stock options, bonuses, expense vouchers will all be subject to scrutiny and all have to be legally analyzed to be sure employers aren't exposed to law suits. Sign on bonuses to attract candidates outside the company could be challenged by women already employed within a company. The government would have to create a new branch to preside over the convoluted mess. It should be understandable to any rational person of the complexity of such a law, and why lawmakers on both sides of the isle would have countless concerns that must be addressed before passing such a law.
                     As for my position on reproductive issues...The mantra heard most by the progressives is 'Women don't want government in their uterus'  Well some taxpayers does not want their tax dollars going to causes outside of preventitive medical care and cancer screenings. But the liberals at Planned Parenthood has used underhanded tactics to divert funds to pay for elective abortions and contraceptives which are conscientiously objected by a large portion of the public, while attempting to frame it as an attack on womens heath.....
