The Governor said in his 'big speech' today 'I know what it takes to lead, I am a leader.

How silly..

The Governor has NOTHING to say to concerned women.The Governor has shown us time and time again what kind of leader he would be when the going get's tough.EVERY TIME there seems to be an issue that is 'hard', he avoids it like the plague.His mode of operation seems to be that if he just avoids anything 'tough' people just give up and move on to something else.That is not leadership, that is extremely weak and spineless.

Mr Mourdock is a man Governor Romney ENDORSED this week for high office and will certainly oversee women's health legislation at some point and NOW Governor Romney has 'no comment'.

'Gods Will' has NO place in the same sentiment as 'rape'. Not even in some abstract Lenny Bruce joke.

My boy just returned in August from whatever it is they are still doing in Iraq, and we SEND kids overseas to combat extremism brought around by the 'Gods will' mentality. It has ZERO place here at home in the US Government.Gov ernor Romney is a disaster, you can not like the President, but at least he takes stands and you know where he stands on stuff like this.

The Governor is acting like a pathetically weak and spineless chicken. Expect for Governor Romney to continue him to exhibit ZERO leadership when it is needed.

Funny, it seems to me that you can replace "Governor Romney" with "President Obama" and your statement will make sense. Why is it that when one obscure Republican says something stupid, the media makes that person out to be the face and voice of the GOP?

Anyway, the point of the story was free speech and not being afraid to express your beliefs. It wasn't about ranting partisan politics. Thank you, Mr. Sprouse, for expressing your viewpoint in a fun way.

Some news stations need to stick to the news, if they can, and let us decide on political issues.

I agree! This report portrays Romney supporters as victims. I see a fair share of Romney/Ryan and Obama/Biden signs around the area.
But I do remember different people who were Obama supporters in 2008 telling me they had signs vandalized and stolen, along with bumper stickers scraped off their cars.
Again, just like Christmas, everyone's free to put up whatever they want on their property. There is no war on Christmas or Romney supporters.

If Obama loses this election, you can blame/thank the Right for bamboozling him. How is it ethical that an entire news network questions the President’s citizenship for four years to create doubt in voters while a fringe element of the far right demonizes and degrades him? Most of this is financed by the rich who want to keep their stranglehold on the flow of wealth in our country.

The comments have gone beyond just "one obscure" Republican. One says that rebellious children should get the death penalty, one tries to send his girlfriend, not his wife, to another state to get an abortion while fighting abortion in his own state, one says a women's body doesn't get pregnant from rape, one says it's God's will if a woman get's pregnant from rape, and don't forget the vaginal ultrasound issue in good ole' Virginia. One obscure Republican? Together, they are the face of the Republican party.

(You may have seen this under another topic but I own it and am the same person that posted it previously)

As I recall, Obama said (promised) he would halve the deficit and bring unemployment down to approximately 5.5%(else he would be a one-term president). It is clear (even to a casual observer) that Obama failed; he actually doubled the deficit. He also said he would produce a comprehensive immigration bill quickly after becoming president---he did not (and his party controlled all of the Congress). He quickly (and somewhat covertly) passed Obamacare---a mammoth spending bill---when the nation was in a dire recession and practically bankrupt (an unprecedented $10 Trillion in debt, and borrowing 42% of its expenditures); as president, that was a completely-irresponsible action. As an approximate analogy, if your personal family---with a total annual income of $100,000---were already over a half-million dollars in hopeless debt, would you (as head of household, during a bad recession) sign a contract to buy an (additional) highly-expensive vacation home, or schedule an expensive trip around the world? No, you would not---that would be lunacy. Then, additionally, would you spend (and borrow)$72,000 per year more than your annual salary, and continue doing it year after year? Of course you would not, unless you were a lunatic. What our nation is doing is tantamount to this, except with astronomical financial figures.
And yet, Obama's political sheep know his voice and are (gulp!) following him, regardless of his failures (and we know why). Even though grassroots USA sent Obama a very-clear message in the 2010 congressional election---that it did not like his socialist policies, he stays the (wrong) course. As for his OK to kill Bin Laden, any sane president would have given the OK at that point in history; it was a political necessity (the OK was a win-win situation for Obama, even if the venture failed).
As for our nation's finances: Ben Franklin (who completely understood governments) warned us that our republic's body politic will eventually vote largesse for itself to the point where our nation fails. Now you see that trend becoming reality.
We (WE) as a nation are in deep crap----$16 Trillion in debt; we all (or many of us, even me) must suffer to get out of it. We need a strong business-leader President who will drastically and painfully cut spending in order to financially heal our nation. Analogy: Were I the senior officer in an over-crowded lifeboat, I would not hesitate to throw 5 or more people overboard in order to save the whole rest of the passengers; that would be my duty to do so. In our republic, everybody can't have everything---some will fail (and it could--might--even include me).
I recently heard someone voice this comment: In 2008, we proved that we are not a racist nation by electing Obama (that was a considerable part of the voter motivation); now we must prove that we are not stupid. Romney is a proven-astute businessman who understands the working of our economy; and Ryan is a sage on matters of government appropriations and budgets. We need both of these men, now.

The color of a person's skin has no bearing on my political feelings or judgments; it is not relevant. I have many dear black friends. I also have many friends who vote the Democrat ticket; we each have one vote. My vote is for financial sanity---our nation simply cannot afford the lifestyle that we are living. Oh! Regarding the idea of making the rich pay their fair share: THE TOP 1% OF TAXPAYERS ALREADY PAYS 38% OF ALL INCOME TAXES; THE TOP 5% PAY 60%; THE TOP 25% PAY 86%; THE BOTTOM 50% PAY ONLY 3%.

I recently went into the local Democrat Party headquarters and asked why I should vote for Obama; their rationale was actually pitiful. When I pointed out the factors listed above, typical answers to my queries were "Oh! I didn't think about that !" and "I don't know about that."

I can't understand why some of you sheep are in love with Obama. He is the most corrupt president we've ever had. He did nothing to help in Lybia on 9/11 even with real time information. Today it was shown that the State Dept. ordered the CIA to stand down when the consolate was under attack. Why? So Obama couldn't miss his date with David Letterman. Obama and Holder are also resposible for Border Patrolman Terry being murdered. Being the great Commander in Chief and as brave as he is, he cowered behind Executive Privilege. Obama is a disgrace as an American, much less a president. He should be tried for treason and be punished in accordance to the law for that crime. And still you liberals bow at his feet and worship him like he is a god.

OBAMA IS A TRAITOR TO THE UNITED STATES!!! Plain and simple.

99% of politicians on both sides are sleazy. We have a local DEMOCRAT who was arrested for forcible sodomy--right after he participated in a fundraiser for SARA, if you want to talk hypocrites.
