Pretty sure President Obama is glad his mother didn't abort him too.
she probably would have, but abortion was too risky in Kenya.....

Nah, Democrats Don't Want a Welfare State...
America is in decline; fewer people are working; more are in poverty; economic growth is stagnant at best; more Americans than ever believe that our best days are behind us. But one thing in America is booming: welfare. Especially federal welfare.
[T]here are currently at least 83 federal programs that are “explicitly intended for people with low or limited income,” not including veterans’ programs. They fall into the categories of Health, Cash Aid, Food Assistance, Education, Housing & Development, Social Services, Employment & Training, and Energy Assistance.
Spending on federal welfare programs has exploded in recent years, increasing by 33% since 2008. In FY 2011, the federal government spent $746 billion on these programs–about one-fifth of all federal spending–while the states chipped in another $283 billion.
If Democrats don't want a welfare state then why are they spending tax payer money promoting the food stamp program on television? It sounds to me like they are actively encouraging people to rely on the government for supplying food.

bye-bye....
Eddie Vedder - "I'm moving to a different country if little Damien II gets elected."

Alec Baldwin - was never quoted directly, but reportedly made a statement to his wife Kim Basinger, who was later quoted in Focus magazine saying that Alec "might leave the country if Bush is elected president ... and then I'd probably have to go too."

Barbara Streisand - "I don't think you'll see me around here for at least four years."

Robert Altman - "If George Bush is elected president, I'm leaving for France."

Pierre Salinger - "If Bush wins, I'm going to leave the country and spend the rest of my life in France."

The outcome:

Eddie Vedder was "extremely disappointed", but not enough to leave the US. He did go to Hawaii, however.

Alec Baldwin claims that he never made the statement, but even if he did it wouldn't matter since Bush wasn't really elected, he was "selected by five judges up in Washington who voted along party lines".(He originally claimed his wife never spoke with Focus magazine, a claim which he later recanted.)

Barbara Streisand, who was at a White House dinner when she made the statement, claims that when she said she would not be seen "around here" that she was only referring to not being seen around the White House.

Robert Altman, despite being caught on film, later insisted that he was misquoted, saying "Here's what I really said. I said that if Bush gets elected, I'll move to Paris, Texas, because the state will be better off if he's out of it."

Pierre Salinger moved to France.

Lily might move to Jacksonville.

President Romney, a real American, is going to stand the Kenyan against the wall, let him smoke a cig and shoot him and the Fist Wookie as traitors.

America will cheer.
So, if someone is born in Hawaii they are Kenyan? Then is someone is born in Alaska does that make them Italian?

WRONG! Pro-choice means you leave the choice of eliminating the pregnancy to the woman - regardless of how conception took place.
"choice" should be for the woman (and/or her husband) to take appropriate birth control measures if they don't want children.....

what gives a woman the unilateral right to kill her husband's child???...

Romney? Like a funeral director, he just doesn't have it
Lyin' lily lies all the time; she still can't admit the truth when even all the democratic media gave raving reviews of Romney's delivery and only lukewarm ones of the incompetent Obama's. The vile denial Boca beast in desperation again. LOL

So you admit you exclude men from that decision.

Doesn't that violate Title IX?

That's the point with you wingers, its always the person next door not you. Someone is always holding you back from making more, yet all the great innovators have been liberals who did it paying taxes and exploiting the same loop holes Mitt does. How does that figure in the equation because they became millionares as well.
One thing is for certain, with a flip flopper like Romney elected no-one will know whether the stop means "stop" or "Go". The US will end up in another war due to his total incompetence in foreign policy and the economy will tank. The US will end up a third world country if the current crop of Republicans are elected, no clear direction and when they do decide it changes from one day to the next. I'm sure that will inspire Wall St, the stocks will spike for 3 mths then collapse in a bottomless pitt.
