Barack Obama, our next President

Will the Foreign Policy Debate Sink Romney?

Bill Kristol thinks that Romney’s performance in the last debate on foreign policy could determine whether Romney wins or loses the election:

Foreign policy isn’t Romney’s natural subject. It’s not his comfort zone. And it’s always more difficult for the challenger. Good. Romney will have to rise to the occasion.

This has remained one of Romney’s biggest weaknesses for a few reasons, the most important of which is that he simply hasn’t spent enough time or paid enough attention to these issues to be as well-versed in them as he should be. There are many things that aren’t Romney’s “natural” subjects, but he doesn’t struggle with any other kind of policy as much as he struggles with this one. As a former governor, it is understandable that he prefers talking about domestic policy issues, but favoring this preference has caused him to neglect foreign policy to a remarkable degree for someone who has been running for president since 2006. Until now, most voters likely haven’t noticed the result of this neglect, but they will see it in Monday’s debate.

"Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured...,but not everyone must prove they are a citizen."

And now, any of those who refuse, or are unable to prove they are citizens will receive free insurance paid for by those who are forced to buy insurance because they are citizens."

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.
So the Kenyan and Reid couldn't sway one Republican senate vote between 2009 and 2010?

What horrible leaders. America deserves better.

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.
If you don't have a budget, you don't have a plan.... or a plan you want the American people to know about.
We haven't had a budget since Obama took office.

Give us the number for the debt of Mass before and after Romney. You obviously don't have the numbers and don't know what you're talking about. Talk about someone talking through their ass.... You talk, but you don't say anything.

I do recall while Mitt Romney was governor, my brother-in-law had to go to Boston to work construction because there wasn't enough people there to do the work that needed to be done. That just doesn't fit with what you claim.

What's wrong with not raising taxes?
.... well??????

So, what you're saying is, Romney balanced revenue with expenditure, right?
Isn't that the way government should be run?

What does closing a loophole have to do with cutting revenue? You're reaching here. Just babble there.

So, you're saying we don't even have any guidelines for spending and comparing that to revenue, right? Wouldn't you call that disfunctional?
Please tell us why we haven't even had a budget since Obama took office.
Please tell us why Obama submitted only 2 budgets to Congress in the 4 years he was supposed to submit a budget.
Please tell us why the sum total of Obama's only two budget proposals in the four years he's been golfing around the White House got a sum total of ZERO votes in Congress.

And, kindly explain to us how the government will be able to control spending if it is so disfunctional it can't even generate a budget when the president has a super majority in the Senate and a dominant majority in the House.

And you're trying to convince the country we need four more years of that....

I stated it because it's The Truth. I wouldn't choose to "go back" on The Truth.

Been riding alone for quite some time now, as you know.

I don't hitch my horse to anybody's wagon, but I will unite to fight a good cause.

How many house Democrats have voted "For" an Obama budget in the past 3 years?

Answer 0. Not even his own party backs his vision for the future.

No record to run on and no future to speak of, so all that's left is to falsely slander his opponent.

Some commander in chief! Only one choice this election season.

By the way, Obama's crowing about the Lilly Ledbetter Act is just another of a long list of liberal ruses.

On his first day in office, President Obama signed the Lilly Ledbetter Act. The administration coined it the “Equal Pay for Equal Work” bill.

However, the law does not give fair pay for equal work, but rather extends the period of time that women are able to file a claim of wage discrimination. With each new paycheck, the six-month time frame for filing a lawsuit resets.

The Republican members opposed the bill primarily because of how it affects employers — and therefore job creation — and on the belief that, as a result of the new legislation, gender discrimination — and hence, not hiring — in the workplace would likely increase because employers would fear lawsuits from female workers.

The Obama Administration cites that full-time working American women earn 77 cents for every dollar a man earns and claim this is the ‘wage gap.’

HOWEVER...the statistic does not account for the number of hours per week women and men
work on average. To a considerable degree, the ‘gender wage gap’ is more a ‘gender hours gap.’

Men are more likely to work more hours while women are more likely to work less than 35 hours per week. In 2009, 66.6 percent of American workers working less than 35-hour workweeks were women.

The wage gap depends on the labor-force participation rate by women, which is a function of a number of variables, both personal and societal.

The Lilly Ledbetter Act provides a forum to air grievances that may or may not be related to wage differentials. However, it obscures the fact that differentials are due to choices.

As a piece of social legislation designed to improve women’s wages in comparison to men, THE LILLY LEDBETTER ACT IS MORE LIKELY TO RESULT IN FEWER EMPLOYED FEMALES because firms fear potential litigation, adverse publicity from such cases, and the amount of resources they would have to devote to defending themselves against such claims.

There's your liberal agenda at work again - causing more problems than solutions.

Looks like Republicans were on the right side of the issue - as usual.

Romney - "Mr. President, have you looked at your pension?"
