Here’s a reason to vote for Romney: Cher says Some celebs have threatened to move to Canada if elections don’t go their way.

A Vote for Romney is a vote to clean out Hollywood. Good enough for me.

Fox News Guest: Allowing Women To Vote ‘One Of The Greatest Mistakes That America Made’

http://thinkprogress.org/media/2012/05/08/479...

The Raw Story uncovered a sermon that Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson gave in March in which he spends 10 minutes lecturing his audience about how women have destroyed America. Lee is a radical pastor who says that allowing women to vote was “one of the greatest mistakes that America made.”

“Look at every place where a women is in control,” said Peterson.“You see nothing but confusion. There’s no good in it at all, none.”

Amazingly, just last week, Sean Hannity, who sits on the board of Peterson’s group BOND: Brotherhood Organization for a New Destiny, invited him to sit on his Great American Panel once again to discuss the president’s comments on the one-year anniversary of the death of Osama bin Laden.

But the conversation never quite made it that far. Fellow panelist Kirsten Powers, a Fox News columnist and political analyst, abandoned the segment to hit back against Peterson and his anti-women views, over the objections of Hannity who wanted to spend his time attacking President Obama.

Peterson has made appearances on Fox News for years, fielding frequent invites from Hannity in particular despite Lee’s history of hateful comments. And it’s not like Hannity had no warning. Peterson has previously said he “thank[s] God for slavery, because had it not, the blacks that are here would have been stuck in Africa.” He also called the victims of Hurricane Katrina “welfare-pampered,”“lazy,” and “immoral.”

And while Powers was rightfully outraged at Fox News’ decision to offer Lee a national platform, Hannity was unapologetic, quickly shutting down the spat and pivoting to his usual agenda of attacking the president.

It would depend on what policy positions he took. I am much more interested in policy than party.
This is not the 1950's for most of us. The cold war is over. Our largest trading partner and the reason for the huge trade imbalance in the USA is the biggest communist country in the world. They are the financier of a large portion of our national debt.


I think I will try MY hand at some propaganda... it is more likely that Mitt may announce HE is a communist. He loves the Chinese communists. He has helped create a bunch of jobs that used to be here in the USA in China and if elected, he intends to double down on outsourcing by keeping incentives to do so in the tax code. He also intends to give more tax breaks to the wealthy financed by further borrowing from the communists.
He may be a closet Muslim too...he is no friend of alternative energy or investment in alternative R&D which will help to keep the oil gravy train going for a bunch of Muslim dominated oil rich countries !

Hey....I am getting pretty good at spinning against Mitt ! Maybe there is a job for me with the DNC ....after all if the RNC would pay Dee........Chuckles !

just ...wow is right!!!

he is taking credit for the reingnition of GM as a company??

was he their CEO or something??

NO he was sitting on his ass in belmont or in sandiego/lake winnipasakea/rocky mts., when this was all going down.

he pioneer managed bankruptcy, really???

this guy is 65 years old.

he gave managed bankruptcy a BAD name, is more like it.

he succesfully " managed" to make a profit almost every time.

while he "managed" to lay off most of the companies workers....

it is called vulture capitalism, and it took full flight in the 80's on the wings of slimy companies like Bain.

Since penning a 2008 op-ed calling for letting Detroit go bankrupt, Romney has desperately tried to spin the eventual auto rescue as his idea, ignoring that he doubled down on his original op-ed by writing in February,“The president tells us that without his intervention things in Detroit would be worse. I believe that without his intervention things there would be better.”

Romney’s plan for a bankruptcy devoid of government financing has been blasted by auto industry insiders and reporters as “truly reckless, detached from reality, and dishonest.”“Romney’s take just doesn’t square with the facts as I lived them,” said Yahoo! Autos reporter Justin Hyde. The Economist wrote that Romney “conveniently ignores” history with his position on the rescue.

Even Republicans who have endorsed Romney disagree with his take on the auto rescue.“There was no one that could have picked up those pieces other than the federal government,” said Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI). But Romney keeps trying to spin the rescue as a success for himself, rather than a case in which he got the policy exactly wrong.

Well, if you're right, that's a good thing. It means he's not making decisions based on Religious Ideology, which is what the Founding Fathers intended...with the separation of Church and State...& what we should demand in this Country!

GOP Senate Candidate Rick Berg Doesn’t Know The Minimum Wage

http://thinkprogress.org/election/2012/05/07/...

When a voter recently asked Rep. Rick Berg (R-ND), who is running for Senate in the state, what the minimum wage is, it took the congressman and his staff several awkward moments to determine that they didn’t know.“Hmmm,” Berg says, before turning to someone else and saying,“This guy would know.” That guy did not know, but they realize it was the same as the federal minimum wage. Unfortunately, they didn’t know what that was either (for the record, it’s $7.25 an hour).

Paul Ryan Challenged By Town Hall Constituents Over Previous Praise Of Ayn Rand

http://thinkprogress.org/election/2012/05/07/...

JANESVILLE, Wisconsin — Last month, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) disavowed his one-time political muse, Ayn Rand, because of her “atheist philosophy.” Some of his constituents, however, aren’t buying it.

Ryan praised Rand’s ideas at length during a 2005 gathering in her honor and declared that “the reason I got involved in public service, by and large, if I had to credit one thinker, one person, it would be Ayn Rand.” But in an April interview with National Review, Ryan took a far different tone, telling Bob Costa,“I reject her philosophy.”

At a town hall meeting on Friday, Ryan was pressed by a constituent to explain this about-face.“Mr. Ryan, are you telling us that your political career was founded on the concepts of a rally of hers, but until recently, you never realized Ayn Rand was an outspoken atheist, that she felt altruism was evil, supported abortion, and condemned Christianity for advocating compassion for the poor?” the constituent asked.

Ryan professed no inconsistency in his views, arguing instead that “just because you like someone’s novels doesn’t mean you agree with their entire worldview philosophy.” He called the notion that he supports Rand’s views “a canard,” though still insisted that Atlas Shrugged is “a great book” that he recommends to those in his office.

from what i know of this guy and his budget??

he would make a superb running mate for mr romney.

but he'll have to choose, as you can't run for two offices at once.

from your post, his flip-flopping skills are a complement to mr.romneys flip flopping skills.

the romney people have to do something!!

the "I know you are, but what am I" tactic isnt really working too well.
