Why would he? He not only shipped jobs overseas himself but borrowed money from another country and took money from the American taxpayer in order to do it!

Mr Romney's "attack" is actually an accurate critique of how poorly the present GOP majority in the House of Representatives have done their job; and instead, have done......NOTHING.

"If you don't have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from. You make a big election about small things."
Barack Obama, 2008

Ironic, as Obama invents 'small things' to get people to 'run from' Romney.

How about your record, Mr. President?

You do have one, ya' know.

It's the ECONOMY. It's JOBS.

OBAMA FAILURES:

Stimulus
Loan Write Downs
Foreclosure Modifications
Monetary easing

Obama's opportunity has FAILED

Time to find someone CAPABLE of moving OUR country OUT of this PIT of Debt

MITT ROMNEY!

Don't allow Obama to place TWO MORE Supreme Court Justices!

Let's REPEAL ObamaCare and have MITT work with BOTH sides of the aisle. Obama didn't do that and won't do that, he continues to shut-out elected officials who the PEOPLE of the US elected to REPRESENT and WORK for them (remember that 2010 "shellacking"?)...Ob ama FAILED to heed the public's message.

Obama IGNORES what the VOTERS want!

OUT in NOvember! REclaim OUR country.

The Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS Church) is one of the largest Mormon fundamentalist denominations[3][4] and one of the largest organizations in the United States whose members practice polygamy.[5] The FLDS Church emerged in the early twentieth century when its founding members left The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). The split occurred largely because of the LDS Church's suspension of the practice of polygamy and its decision to excommunicate its members who would continue the practice.
The FLDS Church is estimated to have 10,000 members residing in the sister cities of Hildale, Utah and Colorado City, Arizona; Eldorado, Texas; Westcliffe, Colorado; Mancos, Colorado; Creston and Bountiful, British Columbia; and Pringle, South Dakota.[6]
The FLDS Church headquarters were originally located in what was then known as Short Creek, Arizona, on the southern border of Utah. The settlement eventually expanded into Utah and became incorporated as the twin municipalities of Hildale, Utah, and Colorado City, Arizona. Since 2004, however, news reports have suggested a possible shift of the church's headquarters to Eldorado, Texas, where a temple has been built by FLDS Church members.[7]

If you have black skin you can't be racist,as you have no power.

If you have white skin you have power.

Yeah? Barack Obama has NO POWER>?!?!?

The Obamas have attended 'church' 5 times in 4 years.

The Obamas attended Reverend Wright's church 20 years and NEVER, EVER did Reverend Wright's hasty words reach the Obamas ears.

Who believes that crap? The media is complicit in the adoration and 'perfecation' of Obama.

Obama is perfect. He nevers makes mistakes. Everything Obama does is perfect. He is a magnificient orator...really? He's robotic in front of that teleprompter (geesh, even at an elementary school Obama used the teleprompter).
Obama is brilliant (but we dont' see his college records-he uses incorrect grammar, 57 states and numerous other mistakes, IGNORED by the media, but let's remember George Bush was lamblasted for EVERY mistake he made).

Think back! Think about the DAILY body counts the media did during Bush's Presidency, but it STOPPED during Obama's Presidency. Bush didn't golf because he morally felt it was wrong to 'enjoy' himself while he was sending soldiers overseas-Obama...hell, he holds the RECORD for golfing.

Just damn tired of a biased media trying to shape America's opinion. Find your OWN truth!

Obama is a creation of a doting MSM.

Even his own biographies have been shown to be full of inaccuracies with "composite" people and situations.

But let's all ignore that, cuz well... uh...'Hope and Change' is such a great slogan, and we can't criticize a black man cuz that's racism.

<quoted text>BAD NEWS FOR GOP! GOP going down!----- GOP on its knees!------- GOP sex scandal---- LINCOLN, Neb.— Lawyer John DeCamp is in his 70s, but two recent events put the author of The Franklin Cover-Up right back in the media spotlight.
DeCamp, a former state senator and a highly decorated Vietnam veteran, unraveled the Penn State child-sex scandal while investigating the Omaha child-pornography, child-prostitution ring that made him an icon.
“Apparently I had done something back then linking the football coach with Franklin,” DeCamp said in a recent phone interview with this publisher.“They [media] called me from Pennsylvania, at least 20 calls…had to tell them the truth that yeah, I wrote the book but I don’t remember everything I read or uncovered. I’d have to go back and look at my files. Somehow or another,[convicted pedophile and ex-defensive coordinator Jerry] Sandusky was brought up some way by me way back [then, during Franklin]…I got call after call after call from Pennsylvania.”
[...] Earlier media reports — barely mentioned in the mainstream media now — established Sandusky as the figurehead for a more sinister role of providing children to wealthy and prominent alumni, according to respected publications like Andrew W. Griffin’s Red Dirt Report in Oklahoma.
[...]“One of Sandusky’s contacts was [here in Omaha],” DeCamp said.“Somehow those Pennysylvania people knew about it from my book; they said ‘you brought it up in your book.’”

President Obama pullus the US back from the pit of the GREAT BUSH DEPRESSION.

He gave us a workable National Health Care law.

He saved the American Auto industry.

This, with almost no help from the 'do nothing' GOP in congress.

Given the times, President Obama has done very well, unlike Mr Romney, who exported US jobs, and now won't show us is 1040's, for the years he was CEO & President, which he claims he wasn't.

Lies with evidence? or Truth with evidence?
We need to have Romney open his tax returns, back to 1998, or refuse to accept the nomination and release his delegates.

Obama puts Gays Front and center on the campaign trail

Thu May 17, 2012 15:41 EST

Tags: election 2012, gay marriage, mitt romney, obama



May 17, 2012- After announcing his support for gay “marriage” earlier this month, President Obama appears to be putting the issue front and center in his campaign, reiterating his stance in a recently released campaign video, and in comments to the media and potential donors.

In an interview filmed Monday for ABC’s the View, Obama said that his current stance was influenced by gay family friends who told him he should support gay “marriage” and not just civil unions because “words matter.”

Obama added that the issue is “going to be a big contrast in the campaign,” since his opponent, Mitt Romney, is in favor of a constitutional amendment that would ban gay “marriage.” His remarks echoed criticisms directed at the presumptive Republican nominee in a campaign video released last week which accused Romney of wanting to “take us back” rather than “move us forward.”

The president was elusive about his own stance on federal involvement in the issue, however, dodging a direct question from co-host Barbara Walters on whether he would “fight for a federal bill” that would legally enshrine gay “marriage.”

In response, Obama merely noted his opposition to the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and claimed that the issue had “historically been determined at the state level.” He also accused Romney of “federalizing the whole issue” by favoring DOMA.

While the president’s federalist slant on the issue has dissatisfied some prominent gay rights supporters, his position has prompted praise, and in some cases, massive financial donations, from other corners of the movement.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, two up-coming fundraising events, one hosted by a prominent homosexual couple and the other by gay rights groups, are expected to bring in millions for the re-election campaign. The first was scheduled in the wake of the president’s announcement, and the second saw a dramatic increase in ticket sales because of it.

In widely reported comments, the president also called for the repeal of DOMA at a New York fundraiser co-hosted this week by the LGBT Leadership Council, gay singer Ricky Martin, and The Futuro Fund.

“We have never gone wrong when we expanded rights and responsibilities to everybody,” he told an audience of gay and lesbian supporters.“That doesn’t weaken families, that strengthens families.”

Romney has taken a restrained tone in response to the president’s championing of the issue, disappointing some conservatives.

“States are able to make decisions with regard to domestic partnership benefits, such as hospital visitation rights. Benefits and so forth of various kinds can be determined state by state. My view is that marriage itself is a relationship between a man and a woman, and that’s my own preference,” he said at a recent press conference in Oklahoma.“I know other people have differing views, this is a very tender and sensitive topic as are many social issues but I have the same view that I’ve had since running for office.”
