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."

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

One of those ads starred the RNC Director of Hispanic Outreach who has been working for the party since before Obama was elected.

When people pointed it out, the Republican response was basically "can you PROVE these people didn't pull the lever for Obama? If not, the fact that they are our employees has no bearings on your claims that they aren't being truthful about being someone who adored Obama and who he broke the heart of."

The economy is the most important issue going. More important, she said, than even women's issues are to women.

"We need to really be talking about employment, jobs," Healy told host Andrea Mitchell. "That's what women care about."


Just out of curiosity, perhaps a Republican voting woman could let me know, exactly how much are your rights worth? As a follow-up, if you're willing to trade in your right to make your own health care decisions, what other rights are you willing to give up?

I'm thinkin of runnin for the (R) ticket in 2016 on a platform of removing women's right to vote but I'll totally cut you all a check for like $500 or something.

Why on Earth did this become a single-issue election?

On a level playing field, I think Obama is a slightly better choice than Romney on the economy/jobs issue. But the current climate in Congress doesn't make it a level playing field, giving Obama a clearer edge (but less likelihood of success). But that's one issue

I think Obama is a clearly superior choice to Romney in terms of women's rights, minority rights, gay rights, education, transportation, energy, Veterans' affairs, national security, as commander-in-chief, international relations, and choice of personal hobbies (beer brewing vs horse ballet).

That makes the election pretty simple to me.

So when you tell us women that to use benefits we already paid for, we have to ask our boss for a permission slip, despite men being able to get farking Viagra whenever they want, and oh, because religion, it doesn't look like you're just trying to slut-shame us. And then when your major political spokesman decides to spend nine solid hours calling a woman a slut in various ways just because she had the nerve to say this out loud, it's not offensive at all. Oh, and then when there are multiple attacks on Planned Parenthood and abortion clinics, it's just a normal, average move and totally legit.

That's...sort of what I was saying. It's not like it's someone's fault that women have more at stake in pregnancy. It's not anyone's fault that leaves turn red in the fall, either. But it exists, so it has to be factored in somehow.

And yes, it would prove very amusing to have paternity tests as a general rule.

Abortions are the best thing to happen since sliced bread. Religious types, family types, old people, who are anti-abortion want to see the 'whore' mothers punished for getting knocked up. What *actually* happens is that the kid gets born and has a crappy life with a single Mom who can't take care of herself or her child. She ends up getting enough support to get by, but not nearly enough to be self-sufficient (this is why we tell people not to feed wild animals - they become dependent on handouts). The child ends up being poor and at a significant disadvantage. The child is more likely to have more children that they can't support and the vicious cycle repeats.

The religious types are quick to say 'Abortion is wrong' - but how many extra children have they adopted? Probably zero.

Unwanted children are unwanted.

In theory, I believe in the individual. In practice, so long as we're going to have a government that collects taxes and gives it to poor people; the smartest thing, in terms of spending and in crime - is to give ANYONE who wants it free birth control and encourage abortions. Statistics the world over support this.

Poor kids, by and large, life crappy lives and have more poor children.

undernova: theteacher: Pocket Ninja: 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.

Only irresponsible women are raped. Got it.

You're an idiot.


Also, if it is legitimate, they still won't become pregnant. Otherwise they were responsibly asking for it.

Dr Dreidel: 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.


I realize that this is anecdotal evidence, but I'll throw this out here anyway. When the economy tanked, I was laid off from my full-time tech job (the company decided to save money by laying off its American employees and hiring a bunch of people in Manila. The worst part is that before we were laid off, we were expected to train them). I was unemployed for 15 months before being hired by a retail company that was opening a brand new store in my area. This particular chain had not opened a new store in a decade because of the wobbly economy. I stayed with them for six months and then was hired by the local school district. I'm now working in a position that better utilizes my degree and intelligence and pays better than the job I had before I was laid off. This position is also open to helping pay for grad school so that I would be eligible for an internal promotion (and higher wage) - something the tech company I was with would have never agreed to (they wouldn't even help pay the $300 or so it costs to take the A+ certification test).

Again, anecdotal and all ... but in my area of the country, at least, the economy has definitely stabilized and improved.

That's fine. I have a feeling you were going to post a chart from Media Matters to prove you point anyway.

As for your assertion, the chart clearly shows we're "right back where we started". If it was sooooo bad when we started, and Obama made it worse than soooooo bad, then managed to drag it "right back where we started" when it was sooooo bad, did he really accomplish anything as far as jobs are concerned? The chart says, "Nope."

Thanks. I wanted to know whether it was worth trying to explain how being "right back where we started" doesn't necessarily mean "has not accomplished anything". I won't waste my time, especially since I suspect you already know the problem with your assertion and simply choose to ignore it.

That's fine. I have a feeling you were going to post a chart from Media Matters to prove you point anyway.

As for your assertion, the chart clearly shows we're "right back where we started". If it was sooooo bad when we started, and Obama made it worse than soooooo bad, then managed to drag it "right back where we started" when it was sooooo bad, did he really accomplish anything as far as jobs are concerned? The chart says, "Nope."


Sorry, not interested in explaining how stupid you are.

Pocket Ninja: 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.


The ability to choose when (and if) a woman 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, though 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.

Any time a politician claims to be better for women in economic terms while supporting interference with their reproductive decisions, women are right to see those candidates as being utterly devoid of the slightest hint of an iota of an inkling of a clue --economic or otherwise.

blahpers: Tumunga: blahpers: Tumunga: blahpers: Tumunga: So, if we believe your FarkLibChart, Obama lost 4.3 million jobs, then found 4.4 million jobs somewhere? With the big mess Bush supposedly left, according to Obama, we're basically right back where we started, in the midst of the big mess. According to your chart, and whoever created it (which I'm sure was some type of Libtard think tank) Obama has not accomplished anything.

I agree with your chart. Obama failed. Vote Romney.
