How much does Mitt Romney's women and Latino problem matter? | Harry J Enten

Apr 17, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Guardian Unlimited

You might have heard that Mitt Romney has a problem with women and Latinos. A late March Gallup poll had Romney trailing by 12 percentage points among registered women voters, while a January Univision-Latino Decisions poll had Romney down by 42 percentage points among registered Latino voters.

This is a tough call because Mormons become women at 11 to 14, so they need an older Mormon man to take care of them.

Non-mormons don't get it. Mormon women are special. Don't tread on our religious freedom, our polygamy.

Latinos are good people. They work hard and if they're illegal, they cost less.

What does that dumb LIBERAL have to do with anything? I only like SEVERELY conservative Mormons, like Bishop Rmoney. Reid isn't going to convert the flock. We need a Mormon Bishop to lead the way. We want CHANGE we can BELIEVE in.

Like Saint Orum said there's not separation of church and state in the constitution. You dumb LIBERALS made that up. I LOVE Mormons and vulture capitalism. It's much better than the old Bible.

Women are not stupid. They buy gas, groceries, pay utilities, and buy clothes for the children, etc. They understand that the Democrats have only helped themselves in the past 3 1/2 years. What have they done for women? They are paid 18% less then the men in Obama's Administration. 92% of the jobs lost since 2009 have been women's jobs. If Democrats don't think they read newspapers, and see T V news they are crazy.

You intend to vote twice? So why do you think you deserve a greater voice than anyone else? Are you more worthy? Are you better/ Do you have greater values? No! You are the scum of the Earth. You take what is not yours to take, and devalue others, not of your ilk.

No sir, you are NOT worth twice as much,
you are worth HALF as much, or less

Yes, I am worth twice as much as a p.o.s. like you.

I will vote as many times as I like, and there's not a thing you can do about it!

Like I said, we are willing to do WHATEVER it takes to ensure Obama is reelected.

You think Iran can lob a nuke from Iran to the U.S.??? I see. You think we can or would invade our allies, our friends, like Canada?? I see. You think Exxon and BP did not get ahold of the second largest oil field in Iraq. They did. You don't get it they don't give one crap about the U.S. they use our military to get control of the oil for themselves. You have no clue 20 times in one post. I've never seen anyone post like this. You're the perfect Fox viewer - low IQ, believes ANYTHING, votes as they tell you. this is why they want the nation dumbed down, so 3 guys on TV can control the entire country, control the votes, the morons never look anywhere else for any information, they all keep line line and repeat TV. Good luck with all of that. OMG.

So you want a war in Iran. The war in Afghanistan is not paid for, neither is the Iraq war. Our taxes are too low so we borrow money to pay for the wars. Do you want your taxes raised 10 percent to pay for the wars?? If you don't want to pay for the wars or fight in them or sacrifice with rationing things like they did in WWII, in other words, you people want these trillion dollar wars but you do not want one thing to do with them, well you need to be taxed to pay for them. Also, like Ron Paul says, you can either afford a new trillion dollar war in Iran OR you can get Social Security and Medicare. We can't afford both, you know that.

You people are soooooooo stupid this is the first time in the history of the U.S. that it has been in two long wars and you all are cheering on more wars when we are flat ass broke for the first time as well. The ONLY reason people are doing this insane thinking about having war after war is because they ONLY look at the TV and they repeat the TV. A nation going under from wars does not go around and say it wants more and more wars.

The Soviet Union collapsed from being in a war in Afghanistan for ten years. Now the U.S. is collapsing from being in a war in Afghanistan for ten years, and you all say "Fox says to have a war in Iran now, okay, we do what they say."

Do you people even realize that both Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity have ZERO college units?? They were nothing more than hate talk radio hacks recently promoted to Fox TV shows. These guys are nothing but opportunists, wars profiteers. If you all want all of these more wars, which is beyond insane, then pay for them and you better buy stocks in the war corporations and oil companies like Hannity does so you too can make boatloads of money off of the new wars, just like the people on Fox who promote these wars do.

Who do you think got the 1 trillion dollars they spend rebuilding Iraq?? Who got those contracts, who owns thos companies?? Halibuton got 200 billion in contacts, Cheney's company and Cheney tripled his stock values by doing that. So he did 200 billion dollars in crony capitalism. Hannity owns a lot of those stocks. He's not selling you another war on a broke country for any reason other than more big profits for himself. Notice how he wants zero spending here, on us, and big spending on more wars. It's cause he profits from the wars.

Dumbed down Americans are not worth one thing. They should not exist because they cannot ever think, you can't ever have even a debate nor a normal convesation with them, they are jealous of normal people so they are very damanging and destructive towards intelligent people. The dumber people are the more kids they have that they can't take care of. Stupid people should not exist. The give nothing and they ruin everything.

It would be one thing if people were just dumb enough to not look at the news at all. But, the whole lot of them are soooooo dumb they repeat a couple of people on Fox TV like they are in a cult. And they are sooooo stupid, they have no clue how low that is, that it is not normal to be that lazy, to be that uninformed, to blindly believe propaganda. They are so dumb they don't even know it is propaganda. It's the lowest of the low. Their idea is "well, TV is fixing everything for us, all we have to do is let 3 people run 300 million people, think for us, tell us what to say, and you are soooooooo dumb you do not even see that is insane and stupid. That is the best you people can do is to repeat 3 guys from TV. Should people like that exist?? No. NO way in hell. They're not only useless, they are dangerous as they are so easily lead by others.

The few smart folks left in this country have moved on from the fake news channels. Fox lost 17 percent of their viewers last year. Not everyone in the country is stuck on that stupid stuff. A lot of people have moved on to looking at Russian Television, at the Ameircan shows, the American Libertarian economists and others on there. They just gave Julian Assange a show on there. Fox and MSNBC are NOT telling anyone anything real nor important.

this is where people have NO critical thinking skills and they never think on their own and look at what is real.

I see all of these Fox drones posting about the half a billion dollar failed solar business because Fox says it over and over and over and has these loons repeating it. Okay, what about Cheney doing crony capitalism to the tune of $200 billion with his company Halibuton and increasing his stock values 300 percent by doing that?? What about that??

When those rich people on Fox say that Obama ran up 5 trillion dollars of debt, you need to be able to think for yourselves and come back with "so did Bush and you profited from it so you do not mind that."

You need to stand up to those people and ask them how much did they make in the wars and is that why they want more wars. You need to trust no one who is that rich and that powerful and ask a lot of questions. Ask Hannity why does he say he is patriotic and he is for a third war but he does not want to pay any higher taxes to pay for these wars, and the wars are not paid for. You need to ask questions not blindly repeat those people.

You repeat people like Greg Gutfeld or Kimberly Newsom. Who are they?? Gutfeld is a nobody, low educated, alcoholic who takes smack. He's paid to be a shill for the oil companies. So?? Kimberly is a former lawyer. You need her selling you new expensive wars and giving you slanted information about a tiny bit of crony capitalism and avoiding the massive, massive crony capitalism that Bush did?? What do you need those idiots lying to you for?? Those people are nobody and nothing. Palin quit her job after two years. She's a failed ex-politician talking smack on and on. She knows nothing and everyone from both parties says that. they put her on Fox because Fox's dumbed down viewers love dumb folks like Palin and Cain. This is the crap they are selling.

I don't know if Glenn Beck went to college, but Hannity did, and worked his way through, no government aid. It can be done, hard working people with work ethics do it all the time. People are too smart to take the word of others on TV, or Topix. They do vote, and check out the candidates, at least in 2010, and this one in November. I have never heard people so interested in the future of our country, talk so openly abut politics.

Hannity is a war profiteer, nothing more. What is keeps telling you all is he supports the war in Iraq, he wants a war in Iran right now. He wants lower taxes. Well, the wars are not paid for, this is where our debt comes from. Why does he sell you wars but he does not want his taxes raised even 3 percent to pay for the wars??

Why do you think he sells and sells the war in Iraq and a war in Iran??? Think about it. What does he get out of no spending here, no spending on our infrastructure, no spending on the people here and trillions more in spending on wars??

Duh?? He clearly owns a lot of stocks in Halibuton, Bechtel Corp, Black Water, The Spade Defense Index and in Exxon and BP. So he gets you all to support a war in Iran, his subcontracting companies then get millions in war contracts in Iran, his war company stocks triple in value again when they get billions in new government contracts, when Exxon and BP gets ahold of the oil in Iran, his oil stocks triple in value.

If he is your friend, why is it he is doing nothing for all of these poor and unemployed people here? Who is he helping to not lose their home?? Who is he helping to get a job?? He is a billionaire trying to start a war in Iran for him to become a multi billionaire. How is that not evil and how does that make him "looking out for you?" Just because he spews one sided hate does not show you what his motives are. He hates any spending on the U.S. He ONLY likes massive war spending because he profits greatly from it.

Cheney has a 13 percent approval rating, so why did Hannity have Cheney on for TWO hours and say "no cuts to military spending." Because he profits from military spending. Why did he make a documentary called "Iranium" and tell the public we need to invade Iran right now when we are bankrupt from two wars?? Why did he try and try to get Newt elected president?? Because Newt talks about going to war with Iran, he butters Hannity's bread. Why does Hannity have the old washed up John Bolton on his show all the time?? Cause Bolton sells and sells a war in Iran. You are being sold a war you cannot possibly afford for Hannity to profit off of.

Why do you think it doesn't bother Hanity one bit that Bush ran up 5 trillion dollars of debt, but it enrages him that Obama did the same thing?? Because he profitted greatly from the spending Bush did. Hannity is the most evil, lying, greed monger, war profiteer I have ever seen, and what is so sad is that people believe this stuff and repeat it. It's so sad. This is how the rich take a bankrupt country down with war profiteering. They get a radio show and a TV show and spread the war propaganda 3 hours a day, 5 days a week and that gets the people to believe the garbage he is selling. How else can you sell a country bankrupt from wars a new war unless you harp and harp on it 3 hours a day 5 days a week? He is at treason, he has been for a long, long time.
