This kind of crude and base mentality is simply the product of progressive liberalism gone amok.
This election is as much about defeating this kind of "mental cancer" that is beginning to spread as it is about anything else.
the root cause of that "mental cancer," is the liberal progressive movement that hijacked our culture beginning in the 1960s. being virtuous, religious and patriotic meant you weren't as smart or enlightened as the limousine libs who produced the movies and TV shows meant to sway the masses to the dark side. that was the dawn of the real war on women and the introduction of violence into our living rooms on a daily basis.

UPDATE: According to CBS News , the Romney campaign now states that, while it disagrees the recent statement on rape from Indiana Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Richard Mourdock, it will nonetheless still support his candidacy.]

We've been here before - in 1990, Republican Clayton Williams, vying with for Ann Richards for the Texas governor's seat, erased his narrow lead and handed Richards the election by suggesting that women being raped should just "relax and enjoy it."

Now, Indiana Republican for U.S. Senate Richard Mourdock has further inflamed the controversy by stating, in a debate last night, that all pregnancies, even those conceived during rape, are a "gift from God". It's the sort of thinking you'll find coming out of the militant wing of the anti-abortion movement (which Todd Akin was a foot-soldier in ) and the Pro-Life movement, that's standing behind Richard Mourdock despite his statement on God and rape.

But if all pregnancies - even those caused by rape - are indeed a "gift from God", from there it's no great logical stretch to conclude that, in some way, God is "pro-rape". Republicans in the Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock mold seem fatally attracted to this, like moths to a flame. They know they can't go there, not even close: ah, but they must. In reality, Akin and Mourdock are stating, albeit clumsily, accepted Republican Party positions.

The Emptiest Candidate in Presidential Election History


Mitt Romney truly believes in nothing.

In the entire history of the United States of America, from George Washington’s election in 1789 on down, has there been a single candidate as unmoored from ideological principle or belief as Mitt Romney?

Romney is a corporate raider and a CEO. His only true ideology is to profit by any means. Romney, therefore, seizes upon whatever toehold he can grab to advance higher. It’s his nature. He’d stampede anything and anyone if it meant political advancement. He has no soul and no core values. This is what makes him inherently dangerous, especially on foreign policy where he’d allow himself to be puppeteered if it meant winning.

Why Jesse Jackson is Sambo and Quimbo

by Robert Oliver

On November 18, the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation in Washington, D.C. held a reception to honor the 25th anniversary of the first presidential campaign of the Reverend DEM At that reception, DEM said:“We even have blacks voting against the healthcare bill from Alabama. You can’t vote against health care and call yourself a black man.” Without mentioning him by name, DEM referred to Representative Artur Davis(D-AL), the only member of the Congressional Black Caucus to vote against the House Healthcare Reform bill.

Memo to Rev. DEM: Who made you the “Keeper of the Blackness” and the Chairman of the “Black Enough Committee,” officially certifying who is “authentically black”?

Has DEM gone back to his old ways of racial divisiveness? If a white-dominated corporation did not jump to his tune (and did not write his organization a check), he would officially brand it “racist.” If it did capitulate to him (and write his organization a check), he would call it “a responsible corporate citizen.” Now when a black elected official acts in a way that displeases DEM, he will imply that official is “not black.” That kind of rhetoric worked years ago with people who feared ostracism from the black community at large by not being “black enough.” However, that went out with 8-track tapes and blaxplotation movies like Blackenstein.

I agree with Project 21 Fellow Deneen Borelli who said:“DEM is acting like a slaveowner trying to keep blacks on his ideological plantation where, they are required to support government programs that increase public dependency on a bureaucracy. In DEM’s world, it appears a black man cannot have independent thought. They must follow DEM blindly or face lashes from his tongue.”

I have to confess I often go visit Mom at the hospital and sneak her in my Mr. Softee. Even though she can't really talk anymore I know she appreciates my visits, just like when I was a girl and would come home after school and Mom would be in the tub, naked, waiting. By now we had our routine. I'd undress and get in the tub with her and would gently tug and pull and tease her nipples and vaginal lips while she did my homework. It was a win/win situation and I was rapidly becoming a National Merit Scholar.

The silence I have received on these questions is deafening.

SHEEPLE, can you give us just one good reason why Obama should be re-elected?
Tell us, what has Obama done that has made your life better?

I told you SHEEPLE that Obama's election would increase the cost of living for every American, while simultaneously lowering the standard of living for every American.

This is exactly what has happened, and it is the best reason for voting for Romney.

Looks like the silence is continuing.

At times in 2008 Obama's adoring crowds reached near 50,000. These days 5,000 is a good number.

Why don't you do something Obama has never done:

If you and Obama do this, you won't appear so goddam ignorant to the entire world.

the definition of apology is "a written or spoken expression of one's regret, remorse, or sorrow for having insulted, failed, injured, or wronged another."

but the media lapdogs for Obama couldnt stand it when Romney confronted him about his Apology Tour, because they have to get Obama re-elected to validate the poor decision they made in backing him in 2008 and to assuage their white guilt.

There’s hardly a shortage, however, beginning with examples of Obama chastising past U.S. foreign policy just 5 months into his 1st year.

cited by Heritage’s Nile Gardiner and Morgan Lorraine Roach:

- At a Summit of the Americas, Obama regretted how “at times we sought to dictate our terms.” In an op-ed about policy toward the America’s, Obama declared:“Too often, the United States has not pursued and sustained engagement with our neighbors.”

- Speaking to the Turkish parliament, Obama rationalized:“The United States is still working through some of our own darker periods in our history.”

- Addressing CIA employees about an administration report which castigated the use of enhanced interrogation techniques against terrorist suspects, the President urged:“Don’t be discouraged that we have to acknowledge potentially we’ve made some mistakes.”

- In a speech, Obama denounced the techniques used in the war on terror:“Instead of strategically applying our power and our principles, too often we set those principles aside as luxuries that we could no longer afford. And during this season of fear, too many of us – Democrats and Republicans, politicians, journalists, and citizens – fell silent.”

- In that same address at the National Archives, he went into full apology mode over Guantanamo:“There is also no question that Guantanamo set back the moral authority that is America’s strongest currency in the world. Instead of building a durable framework for the struggle against Al Qaeda that drew upon our deeply held values and traditions, our government was defending positions that undermined the rule of law.”

Obama’s got extra ammunition going into the election knowing the press corps will do their best to disarm potent attacks on topics where Obama is vulnerable amongst swing state voters.
