She pushed through a crowd of people, towards a candidate. The supporters stopped her at first because she could have been hiding a weapon, or who knows what. But I find it stupid that because one ignorant supporter stepped on her head, Paul is receiving more criticism. Rand Paul cannot control what his supporters do and don't do. The fact that the man is a Rand Paul supporter doesn't matter. Its the fact that a guy stepped on a woman's head.

There is nothing to indicate Romney is more or less a fraud than Obama.Actually,Obama seems to be more, when you think about it.Cover up seems his best effort.His birth,his college grades,his back ground of muslim training and education now changed.His ability to get funds to attend the most expensive and prestigious colleges as an indigent?All sealed!! Why,and all you can say is coward,when you have no idea of courage,maybe?
Don`t count on a landslide,you may lose money.Don`t know which way it will really go,but would be surprised if either gets much above the other.Just hope and pray for our leaders that they may lead this Country back to what it has been and back to prosperity.
Thanks for no bad mouthing of persons on here.It is easy,isn`t it?
Romney is hiding his Tax Returns just like he hid out in France because he was too scared to go to Viet Nam.

He and you are chickenshits.

People say Obama hasn't done anything for America. He has sure done a lot since taking office. From the get go, there was that no good Rush Lumberhead saying he hoped Obama failed. Actually all of the Republicans on here hoped he would fail. They were hoping that more people were out of work. They wanted Obama to be a bigger failure then George W. Bush, so they wouldn't look like stupid Republicans. They want to blame the Democrats for their failure to elect a Republican to the White House. Their failure is because no one in America except a few Tea Party Members and a few like we see on here liked George W. Bush. He was a failure the minute he took office. He failed at everything. The Republican know he failed, America knew he failed. He failed America, and we are still paying the price of his failure. Not only was George W. Bush a failure, he was a liar on top of it. He lied to Congress, He lied to America. In the end, Iraq threw shoes at him, and became an ally to Iran. Iraq is now our enemy, they were more of a friend under Saddam Hussein, then they are today. It is people like we see on here in the Doofus Gang, they still think there are WMD over in Iraq, Iran, Syria, they believe alQaeda was in Iraq all along. Those poor dumb bastards would believe Marilyn Monroe was alive, if George W. Bush told them. They are stupid, not one, but everyone one of them. The reason they say Obama is a failure is so he will look worse then when George W. Bush was in office. They can't see any good for all of the George W. Bush failures that Obama is still trying to fix.

If we took out the 20,000,000 Mexicans, that George W. Bush let in for votes. If we had the huge 100 companies a year on average that George W. Bush outsourced, moved out of America. We would be doing pretty darn good. But all of that happened under George W. Bush. If we had any management of goverment, there might not have been an Enron. The economic policy of the George W. Bush administration was a combination of tax cuts, expenditures for fighting two wars, and a free-market ideology intended to de-emphasize the role of government in the private sector. He advocated the ownership society, premised on the concepts of individual accountability, less government, and the owning of property, all of which was a complete failure under George W. Bush. The trickle down economics of Ronald Reagan hasn't worked for years. It didn't work under G.H. Bush (failure) G. W. Bush (failure). It turned into greed, and failures all over America under the Bush watch. Plus we got attacked. Do we want another bastard in there, just like the last Republican in the White House, that failed America. If you do, vote for Mitt Romney, he is your man.

It's all Bush's fault.
That's where most Americans still put the blame for our economic problems, even though it's been more than three years since George W. Bush left office.
A new Gallup Poll shows 68% of those surveyed say the former president deserves either a great deal or a moderate amount of blame. Thirty-one percent say he deserves not much or no blame at all.
Compare that to the man who has actually been steering the ship for the last three-plus years.
Fifty-two percent say President Obama deserves the blame for America's economic troubles. Forty-eight percent say he's not to blame.

The relative economic blame given to the two leaders is virtually the same as September 2011.
As is usually the case, there's a partisan divide here, although Republicans are more willing to blame Bush than Democrats are willing to blame President Obama.
As for independents, they are substantially more likely to blame Bush than Obama.
With the economy the top issue for November, all this is very good news for President Obama.
Even though Americans have more negative than positive views of the economy Ė and the direction it's headed Ė people are more likely to blame the president's predecessor.
It kind of makes you wonder at what point President Obama will own this nation's problems.
Meanwhile all this comes on the heels of another poll that showed President Bush as the least popular living ex-president.
Mitt Romney may want to keep this in mind as he selects his running mate. Several of his potential vice presidents have close ties to Bush, including folks like Rob Portman, Mitch Daniels and, of course, Jeb Bush.

I have had numerous requests to talk about Mitt Romney. The stupid bunch, I named the DOOFUS GANG of which, there isn't a single one of them, I have a single ounce of respect for. They thought I could only write about George W. Bush. WRONG!

He has no plan for America

The Snake Oil Salesman

1. Raise taxes on those making less then $250,000.00

2. Lower taxes on those making more then $250,000.00

He will be worse then the LIAR George W. Bush, the last Republican that bought his way into the White House.

Mitt Romney bought the Republican nomination. Don't let this liar buy his way into the White House.

Are you sick of the same old communist liberal point of view in your news and information?

Are you tired of hearing endless discussions explaining the points of view of people unlike you?

Does thinking for yourself make your brain hurt?

Then tune in AM radio in the middle of any weekday and let Rush Limbaugh do your thinking for you! Save your mind for heavy conservative intellectual pursuits like thinking about your tax money and how all your guns work![HINT: Bullets go in one end and come out real fast the other end.]

Hear just one side of each and every story, the only side! Rush knows what is most important to you! You, your family, your schools, your moral standards and most importantly, your tax money. Everything else is just so much crap! The poor, the homeless, minorities, immigrants, foreigners, environmentalists, feminists, homosexuals and liberals are your enemy, all they want is to take what you got.

Get educated and hear just one side of every story. TUNE IN RUSH LIMBAUGH the pig on AM RADIO. You will be glad you did.

I want to thank each of you for a job well done. Thank You Very much. Thanks to all of those that blame someone for being upset, that we don't have but 8.2% of UNEMPLOYMENT. Thanks to all of those that blame Obama, Bill Clinton. Thanks also to the millions that came to America from Mexico looking for a job.

Remember this when you listen to a politician. It is the small companies that are hiring. Thanks to all of you, that hired an American.

Folks it took some time to look this up. It should make you sick. We can say it was the RICH, that control America, for moving or outsourcing. Thank your Republican Candidate that bought the Republican nomination. Thank President Bush for a job well done. I heard that Mitt Romney will, if elected create over 800,000,000 jobs in China alone. That don't include all of the other countries, like Mexico, India, and elsewhere. Look at the list, look real good, maybe you worked there at one, or maybe you know of more that isn't on the list. I have a friend in Mainland China. He lives in the fastest growing city in the world. It isn't a city you probably ever heard of. But our RICH FRIENDS have invested over 30 billion that is $30,000,000,000,000.00 that is just one city in China. The City I had to look it up is Shenzhen, China. sorry for all of the companies listed. But people need to know a few facts they aren't told.

Some Tidbits:

Korean-Owned StarKist Tuna Says 'No' To FDA

by Dan Flynn | Mar 09, 2011

After crossing 3,400 miles of the Pacific Ocean last year to inspect a tuna cannery on American Samoa, a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) inspector asked for copies of some records from the StarKist Co.

"Charlie the Tuna," the company's half-century old cartoon character, might have shown the man some "good taste," but nobody from StarKist Co. would show the FDA employee the records.

StarKist, once a unit of San Francisco-based Del Monte Foods, is now owned by South Korea's Dongwon Industries. The title papers for Pittsburgh-based StarKist went to Dongwon two years ago for $363 million. Dongwon F&B was already the world's largest canned tuna business, but it wanted StarKist as a vehicle to make inroads into the U.S. market.

Did you know StarKist was owned by a company in Korea?

Apple Loves America

even as it outsources more of its labor overseas.

Why Apple builds iPhones (and everything else) in China
President Obama reportedly once asked Steve Jobs what it would take to make iPhones in the U.S. Jobs' response wasn't encouraging...
posted on January 23, 2012, at 12:07 PM
An assembly line in Shenzhen: China has created an "unparalleled system for taking something from idea to reality faster and easier than any place on the planet," says Sarah Lacy at PandoDaily. Photo: Qilai Shen/In Pictures/CorbisSEE ALL 68 PHOTOS

Should Apple and its rivals make their gadgets in the U.S.?
Yes. American companies have a moral obligation to hire American workers
They should. But they'll need Uncle Sam's help.
No. U.S. manufacturers just can't compete with their global rivals.
No. Businesses exist to make profits, not to act as job-creation programs.
When President Obama famously dined with a handful of Silicon Valley titans a year ago, he had a question for Apple chief Steve Jobs, say Charles Duhigg and Keith Bradsher in The New York Times: What would it take to make iPhones in the United States? Jobs' answer was unambiguous and sobering: "Those jobs aren't coming back." Now, in a lengthy story, Duhigg and Bradsher explain ó based on conversations with executives at Apple and its tech rivals, economists, and government officials ó why Apple and just about every player in the consumer-electronics universe has all but given up on "Made in the USA." Here, a concise look at the secret to China's success:

What does China have that America lacks?
Quite a lot. China has more mid-level engineers, a more flexible workforce, and gigantic factories that can ramp up production at the drop of a hat. China also offers tech firms a one-stop solution. "The entire supply chain is in China now," a former high-ranking Apple executive tells The Times. "You need a thousand rubber gaskets? That's the factory next door. You need a million screws? That factory is a block away. You need that screw made a little bit different? It will take three hours."

It's not just about cheaper wages?
No. Wages actually aren't that big a part of the cost of making consumer electronics, according to The Times. Paying American wages to build iPhones would add only about $65 to the retail price of each handset, according to analysts' estimates. That's an amount Apple could likely afford. And in fact, China no longer offers rock-bottom wages. But when it did, it used that window "to innovate the entire way supply chains work," says Sarah Lacy at PandoDaily. China is now "a place other countries can beat on sheer cost, but not on speed, flexibility, and know-how."

What does China's competitive edge look like in practice?
One example from The Times article: When Jobs decided just a month before the iPhone hit markets to replace a scratch-prone plastic screen with a glass one, a Foxconn factory in China woke up about 8,000 workers when the glass screens arrived at midnight, and the workers were assembling 10,000 iPhones a day within 96 hours. Another example: Apple had originally estimated that it would take nine months to hire the 8,700 qualified industrial engineers needed to oversee production of the iPhone; in China, it took 15 days. Anecdotes like that leave you "feeling almost impressed by the no-holds-barred capabilities of these manufacturing plants," says Edward Moyer at CNET News, "impressed and queasy at the same time."
