How about we start firing bureaucrats that don't have a direct responsibility to the individuals in the population? Why do you Democrats always threaten to fire the people the population needs, and never think about firing the bureaucrats the population doesn't need?
Let's start with all the czars and their staff.
Then, let's fire the entire department of Education and give that money directly to the states.
By the way, what does the Surgeon General really do?
The Department of Energy has been a dismal failure. How about we fire everyone there?
An idiot knows we've surrendered in the so-called "war on drugs." How about we fire everyone there? Every cent spent on the DEA is wasted. If you don't believe that, just put a hoodie on and walk through Obama's old neighborhood. You'll have to beat off the crack pushers with a stick. Don't forget to wear your flack jacket, though. They kill so many people in that neighborhood, it's as bad as that war going on in Mexico on our southern border.
But, I digress.
Why is it the Democrats only think about firing the people that directly serve the public, and never think about firing the bureaucrats?
Sine we only elect the President & Congress, We need to fire everyone else in government.

Great plan. No SC, No Military, no treasury department, nothing.

We'll just pass laws & regulations have have no one to execute them.

Why would any woman vote Republican?
Maybe she wants a role model for her children that will lead them to self-reliance and not to some crack house where somebody that could be Obama's son is waiting for her there to take advantage of her naivety and burden her with one or two children that she will have to care for by herself, and who will grow up in the most susceptible social group for poor education achievement, poverty, and becoming incarcerated for criminal activity.

If a woman isn't interested in this, then she probably won't vote for a Republican.

<quoted text> What is insane is re-electing the 4 year proven failure, the incompetent Obama.
No, it is not insane; it is sane.

Insane is voting for Romney/Ryan who want to take womens rights away that were fought so hard for.

Let me guess; you're another inadequate woman hater, right?

When you hear this kind of talk, do you get all excited in anticipation that a woman won't be your boss? That women can be raped and forced to have the rapist baby? You'll finally feel like a man, even though you'll never be one?

Real men love women, support them, protect their rights. Democrats.

Wolf Blitzer after Tuesday's debate:
"When we dig deeper into the numbers, we're seeing Romney did score points with viewers tonight.
Look at this.
58% of debate watchers say Romney would better handle the economy. 40% say President Obama would. That's issue number one.
49% say Romney would better handle health care, compared to 46% for President Obama.
We also asked who would better handle the issue of taxes. 51% say Romney; 44% say President Obama.
59% say Romney would do a better job on the deficit. 36% say President Obama would do a better job on the deficit."
Thanks, Wolf!

100% of debate watchers said President Obama would better protect womens rights.
Who likes Wolf Blitzer? He has no back bone at all, I'll never forget his interview of Dick Cheney wherein he asked a question that Dick didn't like and lambasted Wolf. Wolf cowered like a little lamb. I have no respect for him at all.

They want to empower blacks? Oh really now. Tell us how he plans to do that?

Meanwhile, Romney is telling business owners to threaten their employees with being fired if they don't vote for Mitt.

Isn't that considered voter intimidation? If President Obama wins; you're fired?

Continue playing dumb. You're a natural.
Law enforcement personnel are not hired to prevent violent crime.
So catching criminals & solving crimes has no effect on the number of crimes committed, why not just forget about a police department altogether.

I mean, you tell me that the crime rate would not change so why waste the money.

There is nothing Obama says that isn't scripted. This has been his entire life. He's not in charge of anything. Eastwood was exactly right. We have an empty chair in the office of president. This means there are invisible people making presidential decisions. I can't think of a more dangerous situation for us.
Obama's scripts change. That's why he appears to contradict himself routinely. Those who decide what he will say often update and change the scripted positions they order him to repeat. The whole world sees this. That's the biggest reason we're losing so much respect in the world. Through Obama they see the American people, and they think we are actually stupid enough to believe what comes out of Obama's mouth.
As soon as we realized he couldn't travel anywhere without a teleprompter attached to his hip in the first months after he was elected, we figured out he was just the front man.

As soon as he turned over the scripting of a massive piece of social legislation to (none other) than Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid and then went off to play golf or go on another vacation, we realized we were in big trouble.

We had elected a man with absolutely no leadership abilities.

A Frank Luntz focus group made up mostly of former Obama voters say they now support Mitt Romney.
"Forceful, compassionate, presidential," one participant said.
"Confident and realistic," said another.
"Presidential," another told Luntz.
"Enthusiastic," another reacted.
"Our next president," one man said.
"Dynamo, winner," said one more.
"He's lied about everything. He lied to get elected in 2008, that's why I voted for him. I bought his bull. And he's lied about everything, he hasn't come through on anything. And he's been bullshitting the public," one member of the focus group said.

What future? Of not getting equal pay as men? Not having healthcare? If a baby is born with a disease or birth defect; that's a pre existing condition. No insurance.
Or will she prefer that her children not have access to public school?
Or is it that she doesn't her child to be a recipient of pell grants or student loans?
Or perhaps, she wants her raped daughter to bear the rapists baby?
Or maybe, she wants Medicare and Social Security abolished, so that she can not only have to take care of her children, but her elderly and infirm parents?
Or is that she doesn't believe in birth control and doesn't care if it's outlawed so she can remain a baby factory?
