"An organizer working in and for an open society is in an ideological dilemma to begin with, he does not have a fixed truth -- truth to him is relative and changing.”– Saul Alinsky
On this side of the fence between capitalism and the human social cancer Marxism, truth is fixed. Trith is a statement of fact. Here's some facts for you:
A balanced budget means there was, first, a goddam budget, something we haven't seen since Obama took office. Next, the revenue matches expenditures.
So, the first question for you is, did Romney balance the budget of his state?
There are differring opinions as to the importance of a budget. If you go into a crack house, or a household being supported by the government, you'll discover that nobody in those domiciles thinks a budget is important.
However, if you go into a house where it is being supported by a job, or into any business in the entire country, or any government around the world except for the government of the United States, you'll discover that every single one of those institutions think a budget is important.
How important is a balanced budget?
Not very important, according to Democrats who seem to think money grows on trees.
Now, let's get to your post:
How about you put some facts in your post, like what the numbers are.
You talk about balanced budget, which means you're talking about a DEFICIT. Then, you justify your ignorant blather by referencing a DEBT. I would guess you don't know the difference, yet you continue to run your ignorant mouth.
But, let's talk about the debt.
What was it when Romney took office?
What was it after Romney balanced the budget?
(to answer this, you actually have to put the numbers in your post.)
"But he has signed a pledge to the lobbyist Norquist that he won't raise taxes."
... reference?
And, so f**k*ng what? What's wrong with not raising taxes? That's what Obama is saying, too, you idiot.
And, here's one for you, too.
What was the budget for the Olympics Romney managed?
What was the expenditure?
What were the sources of revenue, and how much from each?
(again, you actually have to put numbers in your post to answer this.)
As I recall, Mass was 49th when Romney took office. He got Mass off the very bottom before he left office, wouldn't you say?
The purpose of a budget is to set guidelines on spending & compare it to revenues. That is it.

It is not some magical entity that balances budgets.

I've been on Hospital board where every monthly meeting sat through the finance guy going department by department saying how x-ray was over budget because they did more x-rays than budgeted. Spent more took in more.

The State of Massachusetts was ranked number one in debt under Mitt Romney. Look up the numbers yourself. I mean certainly you have them, right? Or are you just talking out your butt again.

Romney did not improve the employment situation. Over his tenure, MA lost 40,000 jobs.

And really, you don't know Romney signed the Norquist pledge? Then STFU until you find out. How can you be for a candidate & be so uninformed.

If Romney had signed & kept that pledge prior to being governor, he never would have come close to balancing any budget. Romney Closed loopholes ( A norquist tax increase) & Increased Fees ( A norquist ta increase).

As President, Romney can not close a loophole to increase revenues unless he cuts revenues someplace else.

Romney was 47th in Job creation every year he was Gov.

So, What good is Romney's "solutions" he brags about in MA,when he can't employ them as President.

The Hollywood Women for Obama Club wants you to vote with your "lady parts." I want the women of America to vote with their lady smarts. The latest ad from a trio of Tinsel Town actresses spreads one of the stupidest lies about Mitt Romney this election cycle. Fantasyland needs a fact check.

According to starlets Scarlett Johansson, Eva Longoria and Kerry Washington, the GOP presidential ticket wants to "end" funding for "cancer screenings." If you and your reproductive organs don't vote for Obama, the doe-eyed celebrities ominously imply, people will DIE, DIE, DIE!

This scare-mongering falsehood has been repeated endlessly by Planned Parenthood and the Obama campaign itself. An official Obama for America ad released in August accuses Romney's running mate, Paul Ryan, of backing measures to "allow employers to deny women access to cancer screenings." It also is being used by demagogic Democrats in key Senate races (in Montana, for example).

This much is true: Romney and Ryan do indeed support ending all federal taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood's billion-dollar empire. One-third of the budget of the nation's largest abortion provider, which masquerades as a comprehensive health care provider, comes from government.

But here's what the famous femmes don't tell you: Planned Parenthood does not provide women with mammograms. PP's "women's health" mantle is a sham. An undercover investigation of 30 Planned Parenthood clinics in 27 different states, conducted by pro-life group Live Action, confirmed that the abortion provider does not perform breast cancer screenings. "We don't provide those services whatsoever," a staffer at Planned Parenthood of Arizona admitted. Planned Parenthood's Comprehensive Health Center clinic in Overland Park, Kan., acknowledged: "We actually don't have a, um, mammogram machine, at our clinics."

But don't just take Live Action's word for it. In June 2012, the Obama Health and Human Services Department responded to a request for information about how many Planned Parenthood clinics were certified to operate mammogram facilities. "Our search did not find any documents pertinent to your request," HHS told the Alliance Defense Fund.

Got that? Fraudulent Hollywood harridans and their hero in the White House have been deliberately deceiving women into thinking that eliminating Planned Parenthood subsidies would mean a catastrophic end to affordable cancer screening services. But the abortion provider's purported "referral services" to outside mammogram facilities are negligible -- especially given the widespread availability of free and low-cost breast and cervical cancer screening services across the country supported by both private and public grants.
And so it goes

Of course, he’s a flipper, but what do you believe Romney will say about involving our military in the Middle East?
I believe Romney’s a chicken hawk. He said that serving in the military is a way for children brought to the U.S. by “illegals” to become “legal” without having to “self-deport.”(I think those mental gymnastics mean that he would not make their lives so miserable that they would want to leave if they served in the military.) Perhaps there would even be a “Romney Youth” organization.

In the real world, it's the Obama administration, not Republicans, who have actively presided over and promoted a drop in cancer screenings for both men and women over the past four years. You can thank Democratic crusaders for health care rationing in the White House. They want all the glory of championing socialized medicine, but cut and run from the consequences at election time.

Under Obamacare, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) will be empowered to determine which health care services are "medically appropriate." For nearly three decades, the federal panel of primary care physicians and epidemiologists has issued nonbinding guidelines and A-F ratings of recommended medical procedures. But as Forbes columnist Dr. Paul Hsieh explains:

"ObamaCare links insurance coverage of preventive medical services to their USPSTF rating....(U)nder ObamaCare, Medicare payment decisions will become increasingly controlled by the new Independent Payment Advisory Board, explicitly created to reduce Medicare spending.... To reduce costs, many private insurers will likely drop coverage for "C" and "D" rated services. Hence under ObamaCare, the USPSTF guidelines will likely become the de facto standards for both government and private health insurance coverage."

And that means dropping coverage for the very services Scar-Jo and her femme friends are accusing the GOP of threatening.

Note: The USPSTF is the same review panel that advised cutting back on routine ovarian cancer screenings last month, recommended fewer prostate cancer screening tests in May 2012, and proposed mammogram restrictions for women over age 50 in 2009.

In fact, the Mayo Clinic reported this summer that mammogram screenings for women in their 40s have declined nearly 6 percent since the Obama panel announced its decision in 2009. "Comparing mammography rates before and after publication of the new guidelines," the Mayo Clinic wrote, "researchers found that the recommendations were associated with a 5.72 percent decrease in the mammography rate for women ages 40-49. Over a year, nearly 54,000 fewer mammograms were performed in this age group."

It's no surprise the Hollywood "cancer screening" horror ad script was written by left-wing actor/director Rob Reiner of "All in the Family" and Archie Bunker fame. These Obama-promoting meatheads and their hysterical handmaidens inhabit a manufactured world impervious to facts and fiscal realities.

Uninformed. How are you so uninformed?

Democrats did not get a super majority until July of 2009 when Al Franken was sworn in.

They lost it August when Ted Kennedy dies.

They got it back in late September when Paul Kirk was sworn on.

They then lost it when Scott Brown was sworn in Feb 4th, 2010.

So Democrats held a super majority for 6 months, not 2 GD years.

You really need to get better informed because you keep making a jackass out yourself every GD day.
