Romney thought he'd win when he tossed people under the bus?

I don't mean to fuss or cuss with disgust and mistrust, like most of us, but, like "closure" and "balanced approach", I am sick of "under the bus"; when this phrase is abused and misused by retards who lie and try so hard to be witty, while being nitwitty and shitty, a pity. Romney spoke truth to friends who are smart, successful businessmen, the enemies of that 47% who think that they are owed, thanks of Obama and his pet media 'hos. No reduction in bastard-baby rates or costs, the country is lost.

Romney lost when he promoted the neo-conservative foreign policy.

Rank-and-file Diversity people are tired of aggressive neocon foreign policies typical of republican leadership.

Rank and file Diversity people want more domestic policy, not foreign policy that promotes their privilege.

Karl Rove, a neocon mouthpiece, has essentially recognized this fact as true, and is advising republican leadership to adjust to the shift in demand for more privilege for Diversity people under domestic policy.

Below are some of the domestic privilege that Diversity rank-and-file are demanding...

1) Health care costs. Women tend to have higher medical expenses than men do, and insurers often practice “gender rating” to charge women more than men for the exact same health services.

2) Pay equity. The average woman in the United States still makes just 77 cents for every dollar earned by a man, a wage gap that emerges in the very first year of full-time work after college. President Obama signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act in 2009 to empower women to challenge wage discrimination — but Romney has declined to clarify whether or not he supports that legislation.

3) The Supreme Court. Since four of the nine current justices are over the age of 74, the winner of this election could have the chance to appoint several new members. Romney has said he would appoint judges to overturn Roe v. Wade and revoke women’s legal access to abortion, and his appointments could also chip away at women’s rights in other areas.

4) Resources for survivors of sexual assault. The Violence Against Women Act has helped protect countless survivors of domestic assault since its introduction in 1994.

5) Funding for Planned Parenthood. Republican lawmakers have been attempting to defund Planned Parenthood’s health clinics on a state level, denying low-income women access to critical preventative health services in the GOP’s crusade against abortion services.

6) State-level abortion legislation. In several states, voters will decide on proposed abortion restrictions on their ballots today. In Florida, Amendment 6 seeks to ban abortion coverage under state insurance plans. If LR 120 passes in Montana, it would make it the 38th state to instate a parental notification law for teenagers seeking abortions.

7) Maternity care. Coverage for maternity care has typically been excluded from insurance plans — but if Obamacare remains in place, the health reform law will guarantee that about 8.7 million women have access to maternity care like prenatal doctor’s visits, emergency care during labor, and breastfeeding support.

8) Medicaid expansion. As governors across the country debate whether to accept the optional expansion of the Medicaid program under Obamacare, women have the most to lose if states decline to expand coverage to more of their low-income resident. Women make up nearly 70 percent of all Medicaid beneficiaries, partly because women are more likely than men to be poor and women tend to qualify for the program when they are new mothers.

9) Marriage equality and adoption rights. For the women who do not identify as heterosexual, this election could mark an important step forward for LGBT equality. Obama is the first U.S. president to endorse marriage equality in office, and he could enact policies in his second term to extend legal rights and protections to all types of female mothers and spouses, not just the women who are part of traditional family structures. 10) Representation in Congress. The number of women in Congress dropped to just 17 percent after the 2010 elections. Today, voters everywhere have a chance to improve women’s representation. This year, 12 Democratic and 6 Republican women are running for Senate, while 116 Democratic women and

10) Representation in Congress. The number of women in Congress dropped to just 17 percent after the 2010 elections. Today, voters everywhere have a chance to improve women’s representation. This year, 12 Democratic and 6 Republican women are running for Senate, while 116 Democratic women and 47 Republican women are running in the House. Just one woman, Maggie Hassan in New Hampshire, is running for governor.

Although I seriously doubt that Mitt Romney could or would dry up the federal cash cow and quit feeding the sows, we damn sure need him now. We might not like it, but I wish that we had tried it, even at the risk of getting the same old Bushmen and friends back in again.
