Claim No. 6: A fervent supporter of abortion rights, Obama supports late-term and partial-birth abortions.
The Obama Web site dismisses such criticism as the work of “radical anti-abortion ideologues running ads against Barack.”
But as an Illinois state senator, Obama voted repeatedly against legislation to protect infants who, during a late-term abortion, were “born alive.” Such protection, he has argued, already exists in Illinois; it does, but is subject to the abortionist’s decision whether such an infant has a good likelihood of survival.
Nurses have reported instances in which surviving aborted babies were left by abortionists to die without water, food, or warmth.
Obama’s Web site notes that even the Republican author of one of these bills, former state Sen. Rick Winkel, has written that “none of those who voted against [his bill] favored infanticide.”
True, but Obama’s site does not quote the rest of Winkel’s statement:“[T]heir zeal for pro-choice dogma was clearly the overriding force behind their negative votes rather than concern that my bill would protect babies who are born alive.”
Obama has a 100 percent pro-choice voting record according to NARAL Pro-Choice America; his rating from the National Right to Life Committee is zero.
How extreme is Obama on this issue? In the U.S. Senate, he has voted against bills that would prohibit minors from crossing state lines for abortion without parental notification.
"Look, I got two daughters — 9 years old and 6 years old,” Obama has said.“I am going to teach them first about values and morals, but if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby."
Gee, and here I thought abortion was just a 'red-herring'; a bunch of 'smoke and mirrors' the Dems were howling about, to 'distract voters from the real issues'; and a source for disparaging remarks about 'one-issue voters'.

Chew on this one: Taking heroic measures to prolong the life of an aborted, pre-viable fetus, with taxpayer dollars? Whatever happened to 'fiscal conservatism' Tea? And who's going to raise the child, if s/he DOES manage to survive? YOU? Or should we give it back to 'mom'? Or spend millions obliging the state to raise him/her? Those health problems can get really expensive.

"Such protection, he has argued, already exists in Illinois; it does, but is subject to the abortionist’s decision whether such an infant has a good likelihood of survival."

Fact: Women are no longer obliged to seek abortions from moonlighting veterinarians, enterprising butchers, and disgruntled ex-nurses. Thanks to the Supreme Court, that 'abortionist' is generally an OBSTETRICIAN, and has the required knowledge, hospital privileges, and certification, to pronounce a newborn 'unlikely to survive'.

There are reasons why those bills didn't pass.
Legislation can have long-term economic consequences - you're advocating an un-funded mandate.

It’s not the intelligent people that worry me. It’s the 35% of American people who trust only Fox “News” that worries me. It’s the people who huddle in fear and anger, wearing camo gear and barricaded in their armed compounds with like-thinkers, listening only to Fox tell them how President Obama is their enemy and very dangerous to them that worries me the most.

Expressing my thoughts precisely take but a nano second to analyze and process.

If you didn't want a reply from me, you shouldn't have posted to me in the first place. Now, who was shadowing who?

Disagree on the one percenters, many of those seaside homes are rentals, others owned by families and handed from generation to generation. It's a damned shame those homes are history but "most" of those folks have their full time homes to keep them warm__after the power is restored of course.
That Seaside Heights area is a history lesson__the insurance won't cover the cost of same size places and there won't be new policies issued so it will be ugly for many years with a home here and there but not enough to support a community with services.
Memories lost eh?
Tough shyte.

There were 12 polls published on Wednesday among Iowa, Nevada, Ohio and Wisconsin. Mr. Obama held the lead in 11 of the 12 surveys; the exception was a survey by the University of Iowa, which had Mr. Obama down by about one point there, but also had a very small sample size (about 300 likely voters). On average, Mr. Obama led in the polls of these states by 3.9 percentage points.

NYC’s Republican Mayor, Michael Bloomberg, now backs President Obama over Mitt Romney...
WASHINGTON (AP)— New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Thursday backed President Barack Obama over Republican Mitt Romney, saying the incumbent Democrat will bring leadership that is critically needed to fight climate change after the East Coast devastation wrought by Hurricane Sandy.
As New York continued to pick up the pieces after the superstorm devastated parts of the city this week, Bloomberg said Sandy had made the stakes of the election even clearer. He said the climate is changing and that Obama has taken major steps in the right direction.
"We need leadership from the White House, and over the past four years, President Barack Obama has taken major steps to reduce our carbon consumption," Bloomberg wrote in an online opinion piece, citing higher fuel-efficiency standards for vehicles and stricter controls on mercury emissions.
A billionaire businessman and former Republican, Bloomberg praised Romney as a good man who would bring valuable business experience to the White House. But he said Romney had reversed course on a number of important issues, including immigration, health care and abortion.
Bloomberg is not a Republican....even your dumbass post says that, you idiot.....

Yes, I agree 100%. I believe if you watch Fox New religiously you would definitely hate Obama. Even any decent stories about Obama they typically put in some negative comments. It is really awful. I can only base this on personal experience, every single person that I know who watches Fox News hates Obama.
