After reading this letter, you will never again be able to trust Mitt Romney and you will see with crystal clarity the way that he uses his ignorance as grounds for belligerence. Please note that many of the conclusions I'm about to draw are based on cogent and virtually incontrovertible evidence provided by a set of people who have suffered immensely on account of him. I am truly at a loss for words when he asserts that he values our perspectives. He can't possibly be serious. I suspect that the real story here is that Romney's "brilliant" plan is to have procacious rakes give advice to procacious clodpolls on how to deal with procacious scumbags. I personally fail to see how this will result in any sort of non-procacious outcome, but perhaps I'm forgetting that Romney wants to push the State towards greater influence, self-preservation, and totalitarianism and away from civic engagement, constituent choice, and independent thought. Such intolerance is felt by all people, from every background. Romney's wild biases have caused selfish snollygosters to descend upon us like a swarm of locusts, constructing the spectre of a terrible armed threat.

If you think that this is humorous or exaggerated, you're wrong. There is considerable evidence to show that Romney is serious about wanting to help addlepated philopolemical-types back up their prejudices with "scientific" proof. And here, I insist, lies a clue to the intellectual vacuum so gapingly apparent in his projects. Those of us whose minds are not narcotized still remember his frequent outbreaks of savagery. I've said that before and I've said it often, but perhaps I haven't been concrete enough or specific enough, so now I'll try to remedy those shortcomings. I'll try to be a lot more specific and concrete when I explain that he finds reality too difficult to swallow. Or maybe it just gets lost between the sports and entertainment pages. In either case, if we let Romney propitiate the worst classes of frowsy, spleeny delinquents there are for later eventualities, then greed, corruption, and careerism will characterize the government. Oppressive measures will be directed against citizens. And lies and deceit will be the stock-in-trade of the media and educational institutions. Now that this letter has come to an end, I undoubtedly hope you walk away from it realizing that the spirits of our ancestors grieve as they watch Mitt Romney compose paeans to parasitism.

Concerns raised over possible exploitation of mentally disabled voters > <

Jimmy Green's stepdaughter had never voted before. The 57-year-old is mentally disabled, and Green said she doesn't understand the concept of casting a ballot.

But this week, she called her parents to say she had voted for President Obama. The care home in Fayetteville where she lives registered its residents to vote and drove them to the polls, Green said.

"My concern is that somebody told her who to vote for," he said. "She didn't even know there's two different parties."

We can agree; however, I have yet to hear Obama admit to such a mistake, or promise to rectify the situation. Romney does come across as a raving psychopath.

I want Obama to stand up to the GOP, not cave at every whim. If he is willing to stand up, let him say so.

It's a trap!

. Republicans live to fight and they enjoy fighting. If you wanna do something productive, sometimes you better off ignoring the barking and concentrate on your work

. With one hand tied behind his back by this boycotting Congress, Obama did a lot for this Country. Instead, Obama could have chosen to fight Republican Congress back. And if he did, the American people would be the loser. Now, you look back and wonder, how much better the Economy would be if supremacist Republicans did not make an aggressive effort to sabotage the Negro president???

. You don't fight toddlers having a tamper tantrum
. If Obama were to respond to every GOP attack, he'd have no time left to do his job
. Obama is winning the big fight and that's enough for me....

Provided your eyes are still functional, and you turn your hearing aids up, I suggest that you take the next 4 hours analyzing this film and its footage...MANY believers in RepubliSCUM have watched this video, and this is what has changed their minds, as RepubliSCUM know not what the REAL definition of "WORK" is...when the walls close in on Republicans, they concoct schemes to seize power (like Presidential assassinations - John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy), or send America into a tailspin, so that they can take over and smooth things over, while making up bogus feats in order to steal MORE money from everyday Americans (
&f eature=related)...they have NO intention of doing so in 2012, because they know their chance is coming up in 2016...THIS is why 9/11 happened!

Thieving is the prominent goal of RepubliSCUM, and INTELLIGENT, PATRIOTIC Americans know the truth, and these Americans will vote out RepubliSCUM, because they don't believe that they should be voting for thieving RepubliSCUM that steal money from them, in order to stage fake feats, and store large amounts of money in offshore accounts for themselves!

Now...what what that that you were saying about the 5,000 plus Americans that died, because of DECEPTIVE REPUBLICAN POLICIES again, senior citizen? Tsk tsk tsk!

There were no Navy Seals, both Ex Seals were employees of the British Firm Blue Mountain, it's misleading and a lie to classify either of the murdered mercenaries as Seals, as neither were Active Duty Military.

Where were the CSG personnel staged? The group of CIA Contractors never got to Benghazi until after 3 am, the initial attack at the Consulate began at 9:40 pm.

Where we the CSG personnel, they were not in Benghazi, where were they coming from? The Annex which also found itself under Attack on Sept 11, 2012, was not part of the Consulate, the Annex was a CIA safe house for the Blue Mountain Contractors not American Military or Embassy Personnel.

BUT
Counterterrorism sources and internal emails reviewed by CBS News express frustration that key responders were ready to deploy, but were not called upon to help in the attack…
“The [Counterterrorism Security Group] is the one group that’s supposed to know what resources every agency has. They know of multiple options and have the ability to coordinate counterterrorism assets across all the agencies,” a high-ranking government official told CBS News.“They were not allowed to do their job. They were not called upon.”…
Another senior counter terrorism official says a hostage rescue team was alternately asked to get ready and then stand down throughout the night, as officials seemed unable to make up their minds.
A third potential responder from a counter-terror force stationed in Europe says components of AFICOM — the military’s Africa Command based in Stuttgart, Germany — were working on course of action during the assault. But no plan was put to use…
“The response process was isolated at the most senior level,” says an official referring to top officials in the executive branch.“My fellow counterterrorism professionals and I (were) not consulted.”

America knows the truth, we know there were no Seals involved in the Attack on the Consulate. We know that the Americans who were identified as Seals were no in the Military and were Mercenaries who were employed by a British Security firm who held a contract for security with the CIA.

We know that the initial attack where Stevens loss his life occured at 9:40 pm, and that the Security Employees who also were murdered were killed in another location separate an a mile away from the Consulate at 3:30am after they arrived from Tripoli as reinforcement to guard Blue Mountain assets.

We also know the first Drone didn't show up in Benghazi until after the Consulate attack was over some 2 hours later so there could have been no drone filming Stevens murder, who died at the local Benghazi hospital from Smoke inhalation.

We also heard Obama refer to the Attack the next day as Acts of Terrorism, unless you would believe he was talking further about Bin Laden''s attack some 11 years earlier in New York and the killing of Bin Laden twice.

Most of all we know Romney and his supporters are pandering using the corpses of Ambassador Stevens for leverage and political gain. Mostly because of the omission of the other attacks on U.S Embassies in the region on Sept 11, 2012.

I do see your point, but from my point of view, Obama did more than extend an olive branch. He appeared to cave on issue after issue. Take health care for example. Reform was/is desperately needed. When he pulled in republicans and others concerned on what the plan should look like; the approach was to run all the plans through the grading process by the GAO. Those who came to argue for and present single payer were not only not allowed to present, they were arrested. Single payer was not graded because everyone knew it would be a no-brainer as it improves health care and lowers costs dramatically. Instead we ended up with a republican program straight from the Heritage foundation designed to take from the middle class and give their wealth to a few rich CEOs at health insurance companies.

Instead of voiding the Pat Act and restoring freedom the citizens of the USA, he extended it and further signed the NDAA which enshrines our loss of freedom.

Instead of acting to investigate the varied and numerous crimes of the bush administration, they were ignored, which will further embolden the next republican president to break any laws they want at any time, no reason need be given.

While the economy is starting to recover, there were many things Obama could have done to make it happen faster. We know exactly what those things are because FDR eventually did them. Rebuild the infrastructure, hiring millions to get the work done. He could have done that by presidential edict, but chose not to.

So while Obama is much much better than Romney, he is not acceptable to me.
