Buy a Ford. Obama has ruined Gubmint Motors. Even their own employees are ashamed of their own company. And they will NEVER be able to compete without bailouts which is unfair and stupid. Like Obama. Like Benghazi.
Gubmint Motor and Gubmint Obama suck.

Leftists forget yesterday so willingly, it's an example of their neurosis.

Only a few years ago (prior to Obama) there was no government funding of Planned Parenthood. Democrats force government funding of Planned Parenthood, then act as if it has always been that way, that no one has ever objected and that it is not an ongoing issue.

Democrats have lost all understanding of pluralism in our culture. They constantly move the goal posts, then ridiculously claim the new positions were always there. They're absurd.

No I don't know, specifically which regulations did Bush get rid of that caused the wall street disaster ? I always thought it was more complicated than that and took much much longer.

Of all the causes the only ones I know of that involves deregulation are:

Depository Institutions Deregulation and Monetary Control Act signed by Jimmy Carter, it removed caps on interest rates banks were able to charge allowing banks to make higher interest loans on risky loans (sub prime). It also allowed more mergers of banks which allowed them to be bigger.

Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act signed by Bill Clinton, it repealed part of Glass-Steagall, tearing down the walls between banking, insurance and investments. Companies could now merge, partner and operate freely within each other's industries. The act also made it possible for the financial industry to group mortgage and other portfolios, selling them as investments. This more than any other deregulation allowed the crisis to happen.

There are other factors but you specifically mentioned deregulation. I don't like bush, don't like his version of religion determining scientific research like stem cell research, I don't like his declaring war against the gays, I don't like the way he led us into unnecessary war in the middle east, and I don't like the way he spent too much money. But he did not cause the sub prime crisis, in fact I specifically remember him calling for congress to rein in the government mortgage giants fannie and freddie cause things were not going to work and Barney Franks saying, problems, we have no problems.

But go ahead and tell us about the regulations Bush got rid of that caused the recession I must have missed something.

You can believe whatever nonsense you want. As far as I'M concerned, Romney is a candidate I could never trust and certainly would never vote for. I think he's a flat-out LIAR to boot.

So, no matter what YOU want people to do, I'll still VOTE FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA on November 6th.

This is what I don't like about Romney. He changes his position too much. He seems to have no real convictions. He will say and do whatever he needs to benefit himself. That tells me he doesn't think of anyone else BUT himself.

Exactly. Romney has changed his position on important issues so many times that I don't believe one word that comes out of his mouth. His last claim about Jeep planning to relocate to China is not just misleading or inaccurate, it's a flat-out LIE.

In any case, I think Romney is cold, arrogant, has NO empathy for middle class families, and is completely OUT of touch with anyone but the wealthiest in the country. For that and many other reasons, I'll never vote for that guy.

So I'll VOTE FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA on November 6th. The right-wing kooks can whine about that all they want.

doesn't mean tou are entitled to make up shit.

Planned Parenthood has received federal funding since 1970, when President Richard Nixon signed into law the Family Planning Services and Population Research Act, amending the Public Health Service Act. Title X of that law provides funding for family planning services, including contraception and family planning information. The law enjoyed bipartisan support from liberals who saw contraception access as increasing families' control over their lives, and conservatives who saw it as a way to keep people off welfare. Nixon described Title X funding as based on the premise that "no American woman should be denied access to family planning assistance because of her economic condition."

Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), commonly shortened to Planned Parenthood, is the U.S. affiliate of the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) and one of its larger members. PPFA is a non-profit organization providing reproductive health and maternal and child health services. The Planned Parenthood Action Fund, Inc.(PPAF) is a related organization which lobbies for pro-choice legislation, comprehensive sex education, and access to affordable health care in the United States.

Planned Parenthood is the largest U.S. provider of reproductive health services, including cancer screening, HIV screening and counseling, contraception, and abortion.[ Contraception accounts for 35% of PPFA's total services and abortions account for 3%.

I came here to point out that Romney has tried to "re-frame" almost everything he's ever said at one time or another, but then I had to take time to correct a fright-winger that believes planned parenthood just started getting federal money when Obama became president.

You people are exhausting.

Romney hasn't changed a single position on anything. He's addressed different audiences with different capabilities of understanding what he and Ryan say. Committed Obama voters perceive these different addresses as different, because they can understand the subtext of only their own rhetoric.

The Republican Platform is what defines the Romney/Ryan ticket. It has not changed. Romney hasn't changed it. Committed Obama voters must claim the opposite only to satisfy their own stagnant and utterly failed attempts at changing human behavior and imposing consistently failed Marxist economic principles. These committed Obama voters don't even listen to Ryan's excellent economics. They can't listen, because they would have to admit what utterly senseless failures almost all their perceptions of reality are. That's fine, because there are not enough mental hospitals to accommodate them if they did.

is an ideology. So it is a combination of laws passed, exemptions allowed, executive branch discretions and refusing to consider regulating and even monitoring all of the crazy things going on in the financial marketplace. As it developed, the only people who even knew what was going on were the players themselves. Unfortunately they have the money to influence and have gone back and forth, in and out of government and have disdain for anyone who is not clever enough to work the system as thy have.

Now the current president probably knows more now than he did when he was thrust into an disaster of someone else's making with few options, and hs wised up consideably. But the other guy who wants his job is one of the clever one who thinks the system is fine, thinks that manipulating financial market is the real economy and believes half the population are moochers and losers because they don't have the capital or insider connections to play that game.

Correction noted. I should have said no government funding of Planned Parenthood ABORTIONS. Since Obama, this has changed, even causing legal actions to inhibit Obamacare's intrusion of Federal monies supplying abortion procedures and drugs.
