What Romney understands, subby, and you apparently do not (nor does Obama) is that having jobs teaches women about responsibility. Women who have learned about responsibility do not become accidentally pregnant. Women who do not become accidentally pregnant, in turn, do not require abortions. Therefore, supporting full employment for women in fact renders the entire abortion question moot. It's no wonder that Obama wants to continue making such noise about it.

I saw a hilarious new Romney ad featuring women purported to be disappointed 2008 Obama voters who are voting Romney now. One says "the two most important issues for me this election are the debt and divisiveness and Obama hasn't fixed either of them."

Seems legit.

Quasar: divisiveness


There's something truly amusing about a political attack ad using divisiveness as a criticism on a candidate.

Romney cares about money. If he cared about jobs he wouldn't have sent so many of them overseas.

The thought of a business being started gives him a hard-on. He doesn't want people working, he wants people owning businesses. To him, the thought of someone not wanting to run a business is strange. Some people, most people find a career and are perfectly suited for doing that job, raising a family etc. A lot of people don't want the headache of running a business. A lot of that can be attributed to them not having several millions of dollars sitting in the bank as a safety net like Mitt has always had.

So he is not pro-jobs. He is pro-business, and mostly because businesses are opportunities for farkheads like him to swoop in and deprive them of their value and make even more money.
 
2012-10-22 12:20:16 PM
I don't understand when Romney does this. He has a reputation of saying what the audience wants to hear and then absolutely denying any inconsistency.

Yet, sometimes, he just refuses to answer a question and comes off as shady and rude.

Why doesn't he just lie? Ffs. He doesn it all the damn time.

It's like the one of the final questions in the VP debate where both candidates were asked what they'd say about a veteran's concern over the negative tone of the campaign. Ryan's response, "ATTACK FARTBOINGO."

When even Ben Stein is convinced that we are powerf*cked if we don't raise taxes on the wealthy, yeah, Romney could very well be the end of the US as an economic power. I'm not gonna claim I'm automatically leaving the country...let's be honest here...but I'll be sitting quietly in the corner with my eyes on the exits for the next 4 years for sure.

Only if he loses.

Now, I'm fairly certain Obama will pull through a win on November 6th, but Romney could still win with all the dirty tricks the Republicans are pulling this election, as well as the hubbub surrounding the Romney's being associated with a voting machine company, and the owners of said company being Romney donors.
 
2012-10-22 12:58:50 PM
Two more farking weeks of this. At least after tonight, we'll be able to have a better idea who's going to win this election.
I am trying not to enter the realm of doomsday scenarios if Romney is elected, but I still can't figure out where Romney stands on any issue. For a man who is so rich and powerful, he is very easily swayed by the masses (Tea Party) and the super-rich (Sheldon Adelson for one)

From the comments under the article:



Molly Nyc • 4 hours ago

Point so obvious I shouldn't have to say it: The ability to choose when (and if) she is going to have children has a HUGE economic effect on a woman's life--for decades, and usually until the day she dies. (Men's lives too, less directly.)

It arguably has a greater effect on her economic life than anything else--certainly, a greater effect than the federal deficit or this month's unemployment rate.

And women are right to view any politician who claims to be better for them in economic terms while supporting interference with their reproductive decisions as being utterly devoid of the slightest hint of an iota of an inkling of a clue--economic or otherwise.



Nothing more needs to be said on this issue. Moderator, please close the thread to comments.

Democrats: OK, have a gander:
i2.cdn.turner.com

Jobs are coming. If you didn't get one, you likely know someone who did. As a whole, the employment picture in this country is far brighter than at any other point in the last 4 years - for you, your neighbor(s), your family, your friends... So let's look at how Republicans have attacked the jobs problem in the last 4 years. Hmm, The Big Board says they've held up the AJA and have been favoring all kinds of abortion-related bills.

So, to recap - we need jobs and we're getting them and people do care about abortion as an issue, but they're mostly Republicans whose beliefs are outside the mainstream.

// abortion SHOULDN'T be an issue anymore, mostly because where we're at now is where the Right wanted us to be 40 years ago
