Evidently you have no concerns of a pregnant woman dying because some right wing hospital; refuses to abort the fetus that is killing her.
Oh please...It's common knowledge that over 95% of abortions are performed simply as a method of birth control. You sure are ignorant for a former honorable member of the military...oh yeah, that's right. You're not. You dodged the draft and think people who join the United States Navy are "sissies". Sorry...my bad.

I think Romney should hand over his 12 million person jobs plan to the president post haste.

Who knows, maybe it's a good plan?

Incest most often occurs in families where the perpetrator is well known to the victim, ie. a parent or a relative!

Incest often begins when the child reaches puberty!

Oprah Winfrey claims to have been a victim of incest and was IMPREGNATED by a RELATIVE! She gave birth to a baby boy but the child died shortly afterwards. Oprah did not want this child and the death should have been investigated as a possible child abuse case!

Barack Obama made a revolting remark four years ago in connection with abortion and not wanting his daughters to be burdened with unwanted pregnancies!

Jobs are sent overseas, because the short-range profits are higher when you don't have to pay a living wage, provide for job safety, or worry about trashing the environment.

Long-term, however, you can see where that got us...

If the 1% want a thriving America, it needs to invest in America.

Bring the jobs home, and America will work again.

Pretty simple, really....

it was already there...every economist said twelve million would be created no matter who was president...romney's plan was simply to take credit for the inevitable

Now, predicting 12 million jobs over the next four years is not a particularly dangerous bet to make, on the part of the Romney campaign, as a number of economists have suggested that this is in line with expectations, including the respected Moody’s Analytics which predicted a few months ago that we would see 12 million new jobs by 2016—no matter who should end up inhabiting the White House.

We must be greatful to Murderdock and Akin for talking about rape everyday and telling women they'd be forced to have a rapists baby.
The women woke up and went and voted Democrat.
I kept telling Carol this; that the American women who fought long and hard for years will not be going back into the back rooms anymore.
18 women in the Senate now! We need more women in politics, not white men who want to live in the 1950's
You helped to reelect a president who has no reservations about killing a baby coming out of the birth canal by sticking scissors in the back of its neck.

And you think two men shooting off their mouth is unforgiveable.

This is exactly why we're screwed.

OBAMA GOT RE-ELECTED BECAUSE HE WAS THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT, FOR ABORTIONS AND GAY MARRIAGE. LET'S TELL THE TRUTH HERE.. PLEASE!!
LOL! At least you are honest and tell the truth about what your most important issues are.
Carol and the others kept trying to say that it was the economy.
It's not.
It's always about abortion and gay marriage.
Never seizes to amaze me.
Oh, and racism, almost forgot
