Mitt can debate himself!
He has 2-4 stances on every issue.

The GOP - Where you can be FOR something while you are AGAINST it!

The Prez will open a serious can of 'whup ass' on the Mittens in the debates. His orange pseudo tan may slide off sweating.

All Republicans don’t constantly demean people with whom they disagree. The Republican Party was once proud as “the party of Lincoln.” It was indeed a “Grand Old Party.” There was an era when the GOP championed the cause of human rights while racial bigots attempted to hijack the Democrat Party —“Dixiecrats.”
In more recent history, the Democrat Party has become the champion of human rights while the GOP has been hijacked first by the fundamental Christian right-wing extremists and then by the so-called Tea Party, resulting in a movement that appeals predominantly to intolerant, sexist, racist, xenophobic people who have in common only frustration, hostility, low-information and apparent difficulty with reasonable, rational expression — Teanderthals. They rail against those with whom they disagree through personal insults, often vile with a preference for anal imagery, rather than reasonable discussion or use of intellect.
There are still reasonable Republicans, but the have tended to seek asylum in other political circles. A former Republican, I have personally evolved to disagree with conservative economic and especially social political policies. However, I now enjoy debating those policies as a more progressive person.
What was your deciding factor in no longer being a Republican?
I agree and am disgusted and alarmed at the frequent homoerotic fantasies displayed on here. That combined with rape and violence toward female opponents and calling them sluts. This the limbaugh crowd. Frankly, I always felt Peppy to be above that and am surprised.

The Race to Assign Blame for Romney’s Loss Has Already Begun

....One way that each faction in the GOP will try to make sense of something that intuitively doesn’t make sense to its members will be to find a scapegoat that suits the interest of that faction. Ryanmaniacs will complain that Ryan has been misused and neglected, political consultants and Ryan skeptics will blame the Ryan selection, moderates will find fault with Romney’s position on immigration or social issues or whatever they find most distressing, and movement conservatives will hold a nebulous “establishment” responsible.

Frum has already staked out his argument that Romney was “saddled with” the Ryan plan, and holds that Romney made one of the worst possible VP choice possible, Ryan fans are starting to defend their hero and argue that he isn’t to blame for Romney’s shortcomings, and today Gerson returned to one of his favorite hobbyhorses to pretend that Romney’s political woes wouldn’t be so great if only he were more like George W. Bush on immigration. This is just a foretaste of what will follow a Romney loss. Making things more difficult for all involved is the fact that the Romney campaign has been startlingly substance-free even by the standards of a presidential campaign, which allows each faction to pin the campaign’s failure on whatever it wants. Because Romney has tried to be so many different things as a candidate, it will not be hard for each one to identify him with one of his positions and define his entire candidacy with it to the exclusion of everything else.

The truth is that most of the party’s factions contributed to the weaknesses of the Romney campaign in different ways, and many of the errors he has made have been the result of catering to each faction. If he weren’t so eager to please Republican hawks, Romney probably wouldn’t have made quite so many absurd and ill-advised attacks on foreign policy. Romney is willing to say whatever his audiences want to hear, so it reflects poorly on his supporters when he has to say ridiculous and untrue things to satisfy them, just as it reflects poorly on him that he says those things. Romney isn’t a very good politician in comparison to past Republican nominees, but anyone working with many of the arguments Romney’s party has been making over the last few years would be hard-pressed not to fail.

Howard Stern contributors Sal and Richard travel to Harlem to interview Obama supporters and ask them why they are voting for Obama.
Stern and his crew ask denizens of Harlem various outrageous questions, including if they believe Obama will find and kill Osama bin Laden; if Romney is a Muslim and if Obama is a Mormon; if Obama made the right choice by picking Paul Ryan as his running mate and if he did it because he is black.
One interviewee was under the impression that 2008 Republican nominee John McCain is also running this time.
"Just trust me, not one person knew that Osama bin Laden was dead," Stern said during the segment.
"Well, we're obviously dealing with a whole population that doesn't listen to the newscasts or read a newspaper," co-host Robin Quivers said.
Well, color me shocked!!

You mean to tell me the people in those "people on the street" interviews who say they're voting for Obama but can't recognize a picture of Biden are also clueless???

(Actually, I did hear about the Stern "controversy"...noti ce it's only a "controversy" because it puts people voting for Obama in a bad light...otherwise it'd be breaking news on the black out media if it had been conservatives voting for Romney...)

Are you saying that if Romney were ever elected (highly doubtful), that he would drop anything and everything so that Netanyahu can dictate his terms for starting a war with Iran?
No President should act at the behest of a foreign country and that redline bullshyt is just that, bullshyt.
As President Obama said: if my opponent intends to start a war with Iran if he's elected, let him say it!!
President Obama is brilliant!
Romney is a dolt and continues to prove it more each day.
The commie Kenyan mau mau says its Ok with me if Iranian terrorists build a nuke ensuring an imminent nuclear war in which America will be hit

President Romney says no nukes for terrorists

Even with two people working minimum wages jobs is not enough to pay rent, car and daycare, health and car insurance, etc. I honestly don't know how they can. They have to each work 2 jobs; and then who takes care of their children? They are left to fend for themselves. It's sad.

Kind of like folks voting for hope and change.
Did you see Howard Stern's man on the street segment interviewing Obama supporters? They asked Obama supporters if Obama made the right choice selecting Paul Ryan as his running mate. Of course, these fools all said that Obama made a great choice and Paul Ryan was just a wondeful addition to the democrat ticket. LOL.
Howard Stern is on TV? Those street interviews are always mortifying, like Jay Lenos Jaywalker segments. It's appalling how dumb Americans can be. I used to listen to him years ago on radio, and then he got so raunchy with the lesbian sex stuff it was ridiculous. Does he still have that character, was it Mike the Retard?

start by living without a car...find a relative to care for the children...work different shifts and alternate child care....stop making excuses and blaming others like hussein obama...
