DETROIT — Only a couple of weeks after Barack Obama won the presidency in 2008, the man who would become his Republican challenger in the next election penned a New York Times column with a fateful headline: "Let Detroit Go Bankrupt."

Those four words would haunt Mitt Romney across the Rust Belt, where auto manufacturing remains an economic pillar. They were especially damaging in Ohio, a state that every successful GOP presidential nominee has carried, and in Romney's home state of Michigan, where his father was an auto executive and governor.

Romney's opposition to the federal rescue of General Motors and Chrysler didn't necessarily seal his fate in those two crucial states. But no other issue hung in the background for long. And nothing that Romney tried could overcome it.

Mitt Romney says he is a numbers guy, but in the end he got the numbers wrong. His campaign was adamant that public polls in the swing states were mistaken. They claimed the pollsters were over-estimating the number of Democrats who would turn out on Election Day. Romney's campaign was certain that minorities would not show up for Obama in 2012 the way they did in 2008. "It just defied logic," said a top aide of the idea that Obama could match, let alone exceed, his performance with minorities from the last election. When anyone raised the idea that public polls were showing a close race, the campaign's pollster said the poll modeling was flawed and everyone moved on. Internally, the campaign's own polling--tweaked to represent their view of the electorate, with fewer Democrats--showed a steady uptick for Romney since the first debate. Even on the morning of the election, Romney's senior advisers weren't close to hedging. They said he was going to win "decisively." It seemed like spin, but the Boston Globe reports that a fireworks display was already ordered for the victory. Romney and Ryan thought they were going to win, say aides. "We were optimistic. More than just cautiously optimistic," says one campaign staffer. When Romney lost, "it was like a death in the family."

How did the Romney team get it so wrong? According to those involved, it was a mix of believing anecdotes about party enthusiasm and an underestimation of their opponents' talents. The Romney campaign thought Obama's base had lost its affection for its candidate. They believed Obama would win only if he won over independent voters. So Romney focused on independents and the economy, which was their key issue. The Republican ground game was focused on winning those voters. "We thought the only way to win was doing well with independents and we were kicking ass with independents," says a top aide. One senior adviser bet me that if Obama won Ohio, he would donate $1,000 per point to my favorite charity.(That would be a $10,000 hit since Romney lost Ohio but won independents by 10 points). In the end, Romney won independents nationally by five points--and it didn't matter one bit.

Obamacare law designed to unionize 21 million health care workers

In a book set for publication Tuesday, a politics and government professor at The Citadel claims President Obama’s 2009 health care reform law was, in part,

a union-driven effort to organize 21 million health care workers.

In ”Shadowbosses:

Government Unions Control America and Rob Taxpayers Blind,”

Mallory Factor describes a December 9, 2008 memo from Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Healthcare president Dennis Rivera to the Obama-Biden transition team.

That memo outlined a legislative proposal calling for “increasing the capacity of the health care workforce” as part of a larger health care reform initiative.

The SEIU and the Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), Factor writes, later coordinated with other public-sector unions to spend

“literally hundreds of millions of dollars promoting Obamacare.”

A 40% tax on "Cadillac Health Care Plans" starting in 2018.

Those whose employers pay for all or most of comprehensive healthcare plans (costing $10,200 for an individual or $27,500 for families) will have to pay a 40% tax on the amount their employer pays.

The 2018 start date is said to have been a gift to unions, which often have comprehensive plans.( ATR.org )

Until now, Republicans and Fox News have excelled at conjuring alternate realities. But this time, they made the mistake of believing their fake world actually existed. As Fox’s Megyn Kelly said to Karl Rove on election night, when he argued against calling Ohio for Obama:“Is this just math that you do as a Republican to make yourself feel better?”

Romney and Tea Party loonies dismissed half the country as chattel and moochers who did not belong in their “traditional” America. But the more they insulted the president with birther cracks, the more they tried to force chastity belts on women, and the more they made Hispanics, blacks and gays feel like the help, the more these groups burned to prove that, knitted together, they could give the dead-enders of white male domination the boot.

The Obamacare “Special Needs Kids Tax”

– a $13 billion tax increase:

The 30-35 million Americans who use a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) at work to pay for their family’s basic medical needs will face a new government cap of $2,500 (currently the accounts are unlimited under federal law, though employers are allowed to set a cap).

There is one group of FSA owners for whom this new cap will be particularly cruel and onerous:

parents of special needs children.

There are several million families with special needs children in the United States, and many of them use FSAs to pay for special needs education.

Tuition rates at one leading school that teaches special needs children in Washington, D.C.(National Child Research Center) can easily exceed $14,000 per year.

Under tax rules, FSA dollars can be used to pay for this type of special needs education.

This Obamacare tax provision will limit the options available to these families.

The election about the economy also sounded the death knell for the Republican culture wars.

Romney was still running in an illusory country where husbands told wives how to vote, and the wives who worked had better get home in time to cook dinner. But in the real country, many wives were urging husbands not to vote for a Brylcreemed boss out of a ’50s boardroom whose party was helping to revive a 50-year-old debate over contraception.

Just like the Bushes before him, Romney tried to portray himself as more American than his Democratic opponent. But America’s gallimaufry wasn’t knuckling under to the gentry this time.

The president’s record-high rate of deporting illegal immigrants infuriated Latinos. Now, on issues from loosening immigration laws to taxing the rich to gay rights to climate change to legalizing pot, the country has leapt ahead, pulling the sometimes listless and ruminating president by the hand, urging him to hurry up.

More women voted than men. Five women were newly elected to the Senate, and the number of women in the House will increase by at least three. New Hampshire will be the first state to send an all-female delegation to Congress. Live Pink or Dye.

Meanwhile, as Bill Maher said,“all the Republican men who talked about lady parts during the campaign, they all lost.”

The voters anointed a lesbian senator, and three new gay congressmen will make a total of five in January. Plus, three states voted to legalize same-sex marriage. Chad Griffin, the president of the Human Rights Campaign, told The Washington Post’s Ned Martel that gays, whose donations helped offset the Republican “super PACs,” wanted to see an openly gay cabinet secretary and an openly gay ambassador to a G-20 nation

Socialism will usher in a new era in this county.

The great wealth of the United States will for the first time be for the benefit of all the people.

Foreign policy will be based on mutual respect, peace, and solidarity.

The people’s democratic rights will be guaranteed and expanded.

Racial, gender, and social equality will be the basis of domestic policies and practices.

Socialism is not a dream, but a necessity to working peoples lives.

Only socialism has the solutions to the problems of capitalism in this country.

On Sunday, polling company Poll Position released the results of a survey, which asked people whether they thought Fox News' slogan "Fair and Balanced" really represented the cable network's position when reporting news. Pollsters telephoned a total of 1,123 registered voters in the United States and analyzed the data based on political party affiliation and race.

Poll results showed that 36 percent of respondents believed Fox News was "fair and balanced," while 63 percent of respondents said Fox News was not.

There will be rapid abolition of racism and national oppression.

Socialism will bring complete equality for all racially and nationally oppressed.

There will be no compromise with racism, for there will no longer exist a capitalist class which profits from it.

Racism, national oppression,

anti-Semitism,

sexism,

anti-immigrant discrimination

and all forms of prejudice and bigotry will be banned by law,

with strict measures of enforcement.

Affirmative action will be expanded immediately to undo and make up for hundreds of years of the ravages of racism.

Full equality will be one of the main priorities of the new society.

Only 63% Mitt....hell, in his mind that's a victory. You see he doesn't understand statistics and percentages. You know stuff that indicates he's full of nonsense.
The 36% is greater the 63% isn't it...

Just like 98% of scientist buy into the greenhouse gas effect of the CO, when the O molecule, when emmited from gas burning engines combone with the O2 molecule in CO2 to form something called 03 or more commonly known as ozone...
98% of scientists...believe ozone contibutes to blocks suns radiation inside the stratosphere ...well there you have it greenhouse effect.

But no there a few percent that disagree and of course they're sided with large oil company interests...they probably agree but are being paid to go against the common wisdom to the peril of our future...
