if Homer is a moderate Democrat as he claims, then he has no candidate in this election, not even close.....

Tom Smith is running a positive campaign....but the Democrats have nothing but smears....
the Obama-Casey War on Coal does not play well in Pennsylvania....
I've seen all the Tom Smith commercials on tv and on the radio, what positive ads is he running? Are they only running those on Fox News? because then yes I would have missed them.

<quoted text>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.

its all about obama being black to those that hate him.

I hate wearing shoes. While I respect men who wear shoes in public, they also need to wear socks. Shoes without socks is not a style statement, but a demonstration of bad taste — like that Morning Joe guy on MSNBC. What is he thinking?

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.
although I support the black genocide program of Planned Parenthood, I can't understand how a "doctor" who performs abortions on a regular basis can live with himself.....

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.
well, just stay off their property and out of their business, and you have nothing to fear....but trouble usually finds those who look for it.....

Those that are rebuilt will be to modern codes and will be difficult to insure for anywhere near the costs involved in rebuilding.

On a bright note the sand will be worth the full value of Atlantic coastal sand.

Homer has never claimed to be a Democrat nor has he ever BEEN a Republican or a Democrat. Homer is a fiscal conservative and socially liberal. I do not see much difference between Romney and Obama just given that Romney flipflops all over the place. Although being a fiscal conservative I do not want to see another 2 trillion added to the defense budget, I find that worrisome.

I think in a second Obama term you will see spending go down dramatically. I think a Romney presidency given his statement about adding 2 trillion to defense spending and wanting to spur the economy he will introduce even more spending.

As near as I can see it both the Republicans (vaginal probes,abortion policies, anti-gay marriage) and Democrats(creating laws telling people how to live) want too much government control over people.

Yeah, if you are in a union and don't vote Obama, that is insane. Leave your union then, show some guts. Republicans if they could would outlaw unions.
