Under the heading of flat out lies, Romney's own team did a little damage control today quickly contradicting his claim in the debates that his healthcare plan does not deny pre-existing conditions when it certainly does. If you don't admit that Romney changes positions as necessary you are simply not being object about obvious facts. All of his opponents in the primaries hit him with the evidence of that charge.
President Barack Obama took a break from debate preparations that he complained are ďa dragĒ to visit one of his Nevada campaign offices, where he brought workers half a dozen pizzas and made a few phone calls to supporters.

This piece of paper written way back when the country was started called the Constitution says so

And nice deflection there but it wasn't an excuse. I was admitting that Romney does change positions sometimes but your claims that nothing he says is true is complete and utter BS. You and Obama both can't seem to remember his Presidency and past. Mights wanna go back and check up on it.

Obama told everyone the truth in 2007 at the debates. Lol.

I work in public safety and seen these Obama phones. I thought it was a joke when I first heard about the video. And you know what it was a white guy who had the phone at the house we were at. Just because the video was a black lady doesn't mean the white people don't have them. She was just more than happy to talk about it on video. Hell she said Romney sucks!!!! That was her only problem with him. Lol. She probably never of Romney. Wonder if these Obama phones receive text messages prompting the people with the phones to go vote or go hold signs. I doubt it but who knows.

So Mitt wants to swoop in and alter the telecommunications act of 1996 and get rid of Sesame Street? That'll help a lot

"What we have here is a failure to communicate! If that's the way he wants it, then that's the way he gets it !



Good thing I had the debates to watch ?

Did anybody else notice the body language? I am not sure if Obama looked like a scolded child who has disappointed his parents? Or just arrogant contempt that who are you to question me ?

Yea, we wouldn't want to tinker with that well oiled machine.


Quote:
Senator Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) has been taking a closer look at the program since she personally received an invitation to apply for a free, government-subsidized cell phone in the mail. McCaskill has asked the FCC to investigate Lifeline. As a result, the FCC is building a database to see if a subscriber has more than one subsidized phone. In other words, until recently, such a database didnít exist.


Quote:
269,000 wireless Lifeline subscribers were receiving free phones and monthly service from two or more carriers.

I will defend Romney as strongly as I did Pres. Obama!

I will try to believe that whatever Romney has said or done in the past that I strongly disagreed with was necessary to become elected president in our money driven, "Bribes Are Free Speech" broken system of campaigning!

I will hope when Romney gets into office he will have the morals and strength of character he had as the Governor of Massachusetts when he created and supported Romneycare for the needs of the common man! I hope that he will not be pushed around by the extremists of the Tea party that controlled the past election.

I hope he will be a president for all Americans and that he does not dictate, but rather finds a way for Americans to democratically choose the social programs they want while teaching them they have to pay for them and make them fiscally sound! In doing that I hope he will save and improve Obamacare, Medicare and Social Security in their original forms by whatever political means necessary to make them sound fiscally, that is paying their own way!

I hope Romney will not have a Cheney as an advisor and will look at his love for his own children and then show real love for our children soldiers of our families in the very best way possible! That is, by not sending them to die in another Vietnam, Iraq or Afghanistan trying to "nation build" tribal countries into images of the U.S., when many of their people want a undemocratic government run by clerics of Islam, or the Taliban!

I Pledge to support Romney as my president always giving him the benefit of the doubt and my trust until his actions go against the needs of the common working man and make that impossible, which I hope will never happen!

Will you join me? Seriously, will you make this pledge with me to Romney?


Maybe, if Obama wins you might even consider making that pledge to Obama!


Opinyawn
My pledge.



No matter who becomes president I will hold their feet to the fire. I will examine and critique every move made and voice my objections to any and all instances or actions that are not in accordance with the Constitution of the United States of America and for the betterment of her peoples and with their support. I understand that the job of a politician is to speak for, not in place of, the people. I also understand that these actions are the duty of every citizen. Our responsibility goes well beyond simply voting. We must voice our concerns, our grievances and our desires for our America and the direction she is heading. To simply accept and elected official as a leader and follow blindly is to give up part of what makes us Americans.

The 47% argument is absurd. It was simply a poor way to communicate his point - he's human. However, its ALL the Dems have...

I have voted both Dem and Rep. I look at the character, facts, leadership qualities and formulate the best answer. Is not this what we all do? I think not.

What I cant get past are these issues:

1. They keep calling Romney a liar after the debate. The man is a Mormon Bishop and has a VERY good track record of being a faithful person of excellent integrity. Obama on the other hand spent his years being around, and influenced by, people like Jeremiah Alvesta Wright.

2. People keep questioning Romney's net worth and tax records. (1) There is ZERO evidence he's broken the law. (2) The "have nots" hate the "haves". Its simply a jealousy problem American's have. Why are we attacking and penalizing people for wanting to make money and be successful? We should be congratulating them.. Case and point: Jon Stewart slams Romney for being rich a "1 percenter" when Jon Stewart and his wife make $80K/month - also a 1%er... Hypocracy?

3. Romney's background and resume BLOWS away Obama's. Romney is a CLEAR leader with documented and demonstrated success both in business AND in government.

4. Romney hides nothing. His tax issue was personal. The reason he did not want to show people his taxes? For fear of losing votes by the angry and jealous HAVE NOTS! Its that simple and a bit of a paradox. To help the have nots, he needs to be elected. In order to be elected he need not lose their votes. To not lose their votes he must not feed that jealousy fire of the "have nots." So, anyone in the same position would do the same. Funny thing, I believe Romney will do more for the "have nots" that help themselves than Obama has and will. And THEY are trying to vote for the wrong person.... LOL

5. Integrity? Well, my understanding is Romney donated 19% ($3M) of his income to charity in 2011. Obama = 1% and Biden = $300 (total) or like .1%. Who's helping the needy now biotches?

6. If I were hiring someone I would be critical of (1) Personal qualifications for the job and (2) their background/experience. Both have experience. Romney one of CLEAR success and Obama of clear FAILURES. I dont know about you, but I dont like to "wait and pass a bill to see what's in it!" - thanks Pelosi!

7. Romney has worked his entire life. With REAL jobs. He knows business and what makes them work. He knows economies and the issues they face at a state level - and has a track record of success. Obama - not so much... Has he had a real job - ever in the private sector?

8. Romney's background verifiable. Obama - sealed. What is Obama hiding exactly? There's your trust issues.

We NEED a leader PERIOD. What I saw the other night was LEADERSHIP. Dems can call it anything they want, but we saw the true leader and lack thereof... Oh wait, no its the climate or altitude right (FU Gore)...

Obama might be the nicest guy on Earth. But we dont need another Carter. We need a leader with a proven track record.

Off soap box - I feel so much better...
