The Post’s View

Washington Post endorsement: Four more years for President Obama

The sad answer is there is no way to know what Mr. Romney really believes. His unguarded expression of contempt for 47 percent of the population seems as sincere as anything else we’ve heard, but that’s only conjecture. At times he has advocated a muscular, John McCain-style foreign policy, but in the final presidential debate he positioned himself as a dove. Before he passionately supported a fetus’s right to life, he supported a woman’s right to abortion. His swings have been dramatic on gay rights, gun rights, health care, climate change and immigration. His ugly embrace of “self-deportation” during the Republican primary campaign, and his demolition of a primary opponent, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, for having left open a door of opportunity for illegal-immigrant children, bespeaks a willingness to say just about anything to win. Every politician changes his mind sometimes; you’d worry if not. But rarely has a politician gotten so far with only one evident immutable belief: his conviction in his own fitness for higher office.

Mitt Romney claimed that roughly half the country are entitled victims, but the truth is very few people feel as entitled as Mitt Romney and his ilk does.

Entitled to status, entitled to power, entitled to low tax rates, entitled to privilege, entitled to corporate welfare, and entitled to their own laws.

Mitt should release his tax returns for 10 years.

The late Kwame Toure used to say that there was a war in progress, a war against black people, and that we seemed to be the only ones who didn't know it. The war at the heart of today's black polity has a similar character. It's war between the black elite, our own native class of African American cultural and political misleaders, and the rest of us. And since that class of misleaders possesses near-exclusive access to our black pulpits and newspapers, the radio and TV stations most of us listen to, it's no surprise that only one side is awake and aware.

Atlanta mayor Kasim Reed is a rising black star in Democratic political circles who enjoys the favor of big corporate donors like Home Depot, SunTrust and Bank of America, because he is a tireless warrior against, not for, the interests of most black people in Atlanta and around the nation. Reed is widely credited in corporate media like the Wall Street Journal for having solved the intractable problem of ballooning pensions for city workers, which they say threatened to bankrupt the city.

Romney DID release his tax returns and also a legitimate summary of his tax returns from the past 10 years that wasn't even challenged by anyone on the left - which should tell you something.
Hard to believe anyone would give up $5 million dollars to charity just to keep their past under lock and key.
Ridiculous Carol, par for the course for you though.

Mitt released partial returns and skipped 09 which was the amnesty year. The legitimate summary was a short statement provided by one of Bain Capital's accounting firms.

The man has Swiss accounts, Cayman accounts, a difficult to understand Bermuda enterprise and God only knows what else.

President Barack Obama had some startling words for his opponent in an interview with Rolling Stone, according to an advance report on the article from Mike Allen at Politico.
Allen says Obama told Rolling Stone's editor that kids look at Mitt Romney and say, "Well, that's a bullshitter, I can tell."
Here's the excerpt from the upcoming cover story, via Playbook's Mike Allen: 
"We arrived at the Oval Office for our 45-minute interview ... on the morning of October 11th.... As we left the Oval Office, executive editor Eric Bates told Obama that he had asked his six-year-old if there was anything she wanted him to say to the president....[S]he said,'Tell him: You can do it.' Obama grinned....'You know, kids have good instincts,' Obama offered.'They look at the other guy and say,'Well, that's a bullshitter, I can tell.'"
This is the first time we can ever recall a President using that sort of language in an interview. We look forward to hearing the White House's response.

It's disgusting and he is playing to the lowest citizens in his base. Unfortunately, communism's plan for the dumbing down of the American citizen thru the liberal colleges, trickling down to the teachers all the way to elementary schools, appears to be working. There seems to be at least almost 50 percent of the low class supporting this sorry excuse for an American "leader."

Generations of teachers, city, county and state government workers, in their negotiations with bosses --- in Atlanta those have been black mayors the last 40 years --- agreed in good faith to forgo immediate wage increases now in favor of pensions and in some cases medical benefits later in their retirement, which both they and their employers were to jointly pay for. But although cities, states and school districts took the money out of workers checks each month, they never felt obliged to keep their promise and pay their part of those pensions. To do so might have required higher taxes, especially on the wealthiest individuals and corporations who over the last decades have paid a lower and lower share of their wealth in taxes, while governments have been forced to borrow operating money from them at loan shark interest rates. This is the pattern followed by hundreds of US cities and school districts, and probably most of its states.

Pension managers mostly said not funding the pensions was OK because they could make smart enough investments to compensate for the money public employers weren't putting into those pension funds. The crash of 2007 and 2008 made lots of their smart investments worthless.

Now big city mayors, governors and school district execs are not about to go to the public and to the wealthy and say “since we didn't keep our promises all these years we've got to tax you heavily to pay these pensions we know we should have been funding all along...” Instead they have to recast their broken promises as “unfunded liabilities” and the retirement benefits previously agreed upon as excessive, greedy, and unsustainable.

This complete ordeal about Obama's transcripts smell of racism. When has college transcripts & application ever played so well with the rabid right?

I see Trump didn't offer 5 million for 10 years of Romney tax returns and I see Trump as not released his own transcripts.

Why was that?

President Obama is proud of his bailout of General Motors. ThatÂ’s good, because, if he wins a second term, he is probably going to have to bail GM out again. The company is once again losing market share, and it seems unable to develop products that are truly competitive in the U.S. market.

Charles Woods explained that he never calls talk shows, but was upset over news he had heard and just decided to call me.
He talked about his son, Tyrone Woods, who was killed along with Ambassador Chris Stevens and two other Americans who were trying to save the life of the Ambassador.
After 37 years, there are still days that this business takes your breath away.

You replied on behalf of poster Mile__why was that?

Was Tyrone killed in the consulate building "along with" ambassador Stevens or did he die in a different attack in a distant location hours later???

Simple question IMO.

He doesn't have to show anyone anything, nor should he. Da Donald is a piece of garbage who made his money like mitt, going bankrupt.
Legal stealing.
How can a casino go bankrupt?
