The process of deciding where the green energy money was distributed was investigated & no political favoritism was found.
I now its a shock to a person of limited intelligence like you but if you were in the green energy business, who would you have supported in 2008? The Drill Baby Drill Republicans or the green energy Democrats.
BS...

the "tax breaks" were all tax credits for special interest groups...

there was no tax relief for ordinary Americans...

The federal trial over South Carolina's voter identification law got under way Monday with a state senator insisting his work on the law was aimed at fighting fraud and instilling public confidence in the election system.

During morning testimony, state Sen. George "Chip" Campsen III cited examples of fraud that he took into consideration while drafting early versions of South Carolina's law. These included vote buying, voter rolls indicating a woman who showed up at the polls had already voted, and press reports of voters being registered in both South Carolina and North Carolina.

But under questioning from Justice Department attorney Anna Baldwin, Campsen, a Republican, said the examples he gave did not involve the type of fraud that requiring photo identification would address.

"None of the examples you gave in your testimony involved incidents of impersonation?" Baldwin asked.

"Correct," Campsen answered. He also said he could not find cases of voter impersonation in South Carolina, but added that the state lacks the tools to root them out.

Lacks the tools? That's a new one.

'We could find the fraud if we could figure out how!'

Obama wants to make it easier for Mexican citizens to vote here than it is for them to vote in Mexico.

'An ideal voting system would:

* Make it easy for voters to register.

* Positively ensure that voters were who they said they were.

* Make certain that no one could vote more than once.

* And guarantee that votes properly cast would be properly recorded, while making the recording of fraudulent votes impossible.

Unfortunately, no such system exists — and the ones we have are far from the best available.

Current voter-registration systems are flawed, with huge numbers of dead or disqualified voters still on the rolls. And, since voter-ID enforcement is poor, in many places a person can simply claim to be one of those people and vote in their name with no one the wiser.

(Sometimes it’s worse than that — one voting-rights activist, A 20-SOMETHING WHITE GUY WITH A PONY TAIL in Washington, DC, managed to get a ballot in Attorney General Eric Holder’s name.)

You might call our system “Third World,” but that would be an insult to the Third World. TO REGISTER TO VOTE IN MEXICO A VOTER MUST PROVIDE A PHOTO, A SIGNATURE AND A THUMBPRINT. The Mexican voter-registration card includes holographic security, a magnetic code and a serial number. BEFORE VOTING, VOTERS HAVE TO SHOW have THE CARD AND HAVE THE THUMBPRINTS MATCHED BY A SCANNER.

Similar safeguards apply in many other countries, along with simple precautions to prevent repeat voting (remember those Iraqis with purple thumbs?) that America lacks.

In the United States, meanwhile, only 17 states even require identification in order to vote. Holder & Co., claim that requiring photo ID would be racist, because getting a driver’s license, etc., costs money. This claim has consistently been rejected by courts, and with good reason: If requiring photo ID to vote is racist, then what about requiring photo ID to exercise other constitutional rights, like buying a gun?

Of course, the real objection to requiring voter ID isn’t based in civil rights, but in civil wrongs. With elections often decided by narrow margins, the ability to produce a few thousand more ballots can often swing the results.(In Minnesota’s 2008 disputed US Senate election, won by Al Franken — who proceeded to cast the deciding vote in favor of ObamaCare — the margin of victory was 312, but it turned out that 1,099 votes were cast by felons who were ineligible to vote. Many of them have gone to jail, but Franken has remained in the Senate).

Voter ID makes that kind of trickery harder, which is why political manipulators oppose it.

Voters understand this. According to a Washington Post poll taken earlier this month, 74 percent of Americans support laws requiring voters to show photo identification.

The irony is that it is precisely the people who Eric Holder et al. purport to speak for — poor, often black, inner-city residents — who suffer the most from voter fraud.

Many of America’s largest and worst-governed cities suffer from entrenched and corrupt political machines that maintain their position in no small part via voter fraud. Corrupt machines (like that of Detroit’s disgraced ex-Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick) siphon off money that should go to essential services and instead divert it to political fatcats and their supporters. Efforts at reform are often defeated with fraudulent votes.'

The GOP 'we speak for the people' BS goes down the drain.....

Most Americans say go ahead and raise taxes if it will save Social Security benefits for future generations. And raise the retirement age, if you have to.

Both options are preferable to cutting monthly benefits, even for people who are years away from applying for them.

Those are the findings of a new Associated Press-GfK poll on public attitudes toward the nation's largest federal program.

Social Security is facing serious long-term financial problems. When given a choice on how to fix them, 53 percent of adults said they would rather raise taxes than cut benefits for future generations, according to the poll. Just 36 percent said they would cut benefits instead.

The results were similar when people were asked whether they would rather raise the retirement age or cut monthly payments for future generations – 53 percent said they would raise the retirement age, while 35 percent said they would cut monthly payments.

If it's about a job.then why support the party that was driving the bus when it crashed.

If its about birth control, why vote for a party that is so stupid it complains about abortion & wants to reduce access to birth control. Don't you dummies know the two are related????

==========

Although pollsters show pretty close polls, actually at this time, Romney is winning both in popular votes and electoral college votes slightly by counting valid voters with valid IDS, as Romney has just surged up in the polls in last 10 days.

However, there is a long way to go--only after both Republicans' and Democrats" conventions, that is the stringent period where it will be, in determining the final outcome.
