When we finally cut all the beurocratic red tape and all the wasteful and duplicate government spending programs, reform the tax code, repeal Obamacare, reform Medicare and Social Security, give more power and decision making back to the states, start creating jobs and people can save and spend and invest more of their own hard-earned money again...the federal government will have more revenues and can go back to doing one of the few things it was designed to do - protect this nation.
Romney/Ryan!
Sure, deregulate everything, remove all benefits and over-fund the only parts of government you feel we need - the police and military. Now there's a recipe for success.

When Was The New Black Panther Case Downgraded?
.... the case was downgraded to a civil case 11 days before Obama was inaugurated, 26 days before Eric Holder became attorney general, and about nine months before Thomas Perez was confirmed as head of the Civil Rights Division.

Romney up 92,000 votes in Ohio.
HA HA HA HA:

The Cincinnati Enquirer earlier today posted fake data on its website showing Mitt Romney with a 92,000-vote lead in a supposed early vote count in Ohio. Editors later posted an apology, explaining that the election-results chart was created as a template and was inadvertently posted early.

"A CBS News Obama-Libya scandal? Certainly."

"Oct. 17. That’s the date on which President Obama’s position on the Benghazi, Libya, attack peaked as a national issue. The night before, in a town hall debate moderated by CNN’s Candy Crowley, the president made a spectacle of noting that on the day after the Benghazi tragedy, he stood in the Rose Garden and called it an “act of terror.” His opponent, Mitt Romney, seemed convinced otherwise, prompting a controversial fact-check by Crowley. The fuss over all of this prompted politically involved Americans to debate just how Obama had categorized the tragedy.

Cue the “60 Minutes” video. Or not.

In a passionate post today, Bret Baier of Fox News hammers CBS News for waiting till Nov. 4 to post a bit of video quite relevant to all of this. In it, Steve Kroft of “60 Minutes” asks the president about Benghazi. The question was posed on Sept. 12, the same day of the Rose Garden address:

KROFT: Mr. President, this morning you went out of your way to avoid the use of the word terrorism in connection with the Libya Attack, do you believe that this was a terrorist attack?

OBAMA: Well it’s too early to know exactly how this came about, what group was involved, but obviously it was an attack on Americans. And we are going to be working with the Libyan government to make sure that we bring these folks to justice, one way or the other.

The president’s response packs it all: 1) Avoidance of the question; 2) refusal to use the term “terrorism”; 3) reliance on talking points about bringing people to justice. In other words, big news.

Had this clip embedded itself in the news cycle after the town-hall debate, the following would have happened:

1) CBS News would have reaped millions of page views;

2) Mitt Romney’s slip-up in the town-hall debate over this issue would no longer look like as a slip-up; it’d look like a quest for accountability;

3) Team Obama would have had to spend days responding to questions about the discrepancy between what he said in the town-hall debate and what he’d told Kroft; and

4) After that town-hall debate, Romney pretty much dropped Libya as a talking point. In a strategic move much observed by pundits, he declined to pound away on the topic in the final presidential debate, which centered on foreign policy. Had CBS News released what it had on hand, perhaps Romney would have had charged ahead with a Libya message.

Now the clip is way past its sell-by date. It’ll cause a ruckus among media critics and Libya geeks, and that’s about it. As insulting as CBS News’s timing is its position on the matter. It has issued a short statement that skirts the issue in the hope of changing the subject, perfect symmetry for Benghazi:“We’re proud of our Benghazi coverage, which from Libya to Washington has been the most comprehensive original reporting of any network.”

Left unaddressed is how this possibly could have happened. An honest mistake? A producer who missed the second debate? Whatever the cause, the episode grinds to the detriment of Kroft, who had the prescience to ask the president the question that would preoccupy Washington for weeks. Perhaps it was he who agitated to release this clip.

Critics will elevate CBS News’s selective video publishing to a prime exhibit in their brief that the mainstream media is protecting Obama. Barring a better explanation from CBS News, that’s a hard case to contradict. The only note of mitigation for the network is that it didn’t wait till after the election to publish the video or suppress it altogether."

Well, I don't know anyone who wants the government to control their bodies. I do not know one woman who would think it's okay to have to beg and grovel and prove she was raped to get an abortion.
I do not know one woman who would welcome being raped by the state via a vaginal probe. I do not know one woman who would think that a rapists baby is a gift from god.
Nor would any of these women want any other woman to go through this, or their daughters, or their granddaughters. We are the women of the 70's, we're not going back. Hell no.
And furthermore, men and women like sex, they want to have sex, they don't want to feel like a criminal if they have sex and make a mistake. This will affect men and women.
You evangelicals are motivated by mob rule, imposing your religious opinions onto others. Why can't you mind your own business and live and let live? You don't want an abortion? Don't have one then. Who cares? It's your choice if you want your daughter to have the rapists baby.
Forcing women to bear children they do not want or cannot afford, greatly affects their earning capabilities and the economy.
Remember, there are 500,000 kids in fostercare.
I know a couple of women who ABSOLUTELY DO want abortion criminalized, and all involved parties prosecuted for murder. Both are infertile.

I also know a woman who has had two abortions, and who marches in Catholic pro-life rallies as a hobby.

I agree with everything you've posted here otherwise, although women may go back, but it won't be quietly.

Yeah, it's sickening. They really would be happy if no Democrats or anyone not voting for their candidate couldn't vote or was turned away. It's the mindset. Awful.

You mean the Democrats haven't gotten that information to every Democrat yet? What's it been? Twelve goddam years since you idiots first started crying about this?
Give Romney 12 years to solve a problem like informing the public and the public will be informed. Obviously, this simple task is beyond the capabilities of the Democrats.
But, she was probably well informed about Obama's messiahness. They sure get that message out to everyone.
