Know what the problem is with Akin & the conservative's doctrine of "legitimate rape"? This is what much of the GOP/Teabag Nation believe. Reagan, the Bush's, the Republicans all coddled the far right fringe to win their votes. But when they are seen & heard, mainstream Americans are appalled.

As Jeremiah Wright might say, the conservatives' chickens, are coming home, to roost!

And in time for Mitt Romney's convention! LOL!!!

War on reason??? You're socialist ideaology is not REASON! It's stupid, has failed everywhere it's been tried.

The enviornment? Asinine!

Clean Air Act (it's one of the GOP's greatest environmental legacies). Proposed by President Richard Nixon, muscled towards passage by Senator Howard Baker (R-TN), put into effect by William Ruckelshaus’ EPA, and strengthened by President George H.W. Bush, the law has swept lead from the air, cut urban smog, and reduced acid rain.

The ruling undermined a long-settled interpretation that the Clean Water Act is broad in scope, which was the intent of Senator Howard Baker (R-TN) and other lawmakers who got the legislation passed decades ago.
Republicans are behind the mountaintop removal mining techniques. Not the democrats.

Republicans were the original conservationists. The conservation movement that Theodore Roosevelt and other GOP worthies started in the 19th century reached fruition in 1964 with one of the most visionary stewardship laws in history – the Wilderness Act.

Co-author John Saylor, a conservative Republican congressman from western Pennsylvania, fought for wilderness protection because he said it showed reverence for creation and love of country.

Richard Nixon signed in 1972. George W. Bush showed a soft spot for the seas through his expansive use of the Antiquities Act to protect nearly 215 million acres of territorial marine waters featuring coral reefs and other spectacular treasures.

You and poo poo's pathetic propaganda is laughable. The problem with people like you.......you're all talk. The republicans actually take care of the problems.

I did not know that stripping the voting rights away from WW2 vets was considered taking votes away from illegal aliens.

One should keep in mind Obama supports a technique that opens up a baby's head like a soda bottle to complete a partial birth abortion.
.
He did say no girl should be "punished" with a baby.
.
There is no doubt Barack Obama is the most souless man to ever sit in the White House.

Would Romney have to release more tax returns?

There is not any such specification in the Constitution nor by requirements that a candidate has to do so.

Romney said he would not issue more tax returns by saying that would make people feel side-tracked and interpret wrongly.

He has been donating huge sums of money to the Mormon Church and other charities over many years as the Church requires members giving a minimum of 10% of income.

It could be true that people may look into interpreting that he is a dedicated Mormon because he has given a lot of money to the Church -- however, it is basically narrowing down to the matter of his large income as the subject regardless how people think if he is a Mormon devotionist.

Further more,Romney said by releasing more returns, they would also use what would be in tax returns to make additional gambits of purely trivial unimportant jargons to cause clumsy confusion for people.

Hence, the IRS must know Romney has paid all due taxes related to all his income in the past and that settles the point.

The matter concerning Romney's wealth and finance and donations is a privacy rights matter because he pays all taxes, in the past and at any given time.

People do not have to know the wealth and finance of a candidate to deflect from the main focus of the election.

Thus, Romney does not have to give more tax returns, other than the most recent one he will be releasing.

That was brilliant. What I wanted to say, but could not articulate nearly well.

America is Left of Center. The Republican RINO has produced the most progressive candidates the party has ever nominated: Romney and Ryan.

Mormon Rich Money supported government healthcare raising "fees" on businesses.

Paul Ryan supported TARP and the Auto Bailout.

And they even support abortion in some cases. The Republican RINO party is becoming more progressive before our very eyes.

Don't make assumptions. I am not a registered Republican. I an registered unaffliated. I am debating the very critical choice that we must make as a nation. I'm libertarian. So any regligious affiliation is a negative in my mind. But we can't get away from that. It is expected, you have profess some version of Christian faith or you will never be elected. I hope that changes.

I have just picked the lesser of two evils? The one that is most aligned with my views, I don't know if I trust Romney. I can't just any politician. I trust he will do less damage.4855

Attention scarync!!! You sound like you are shopping list for a new car instead of simply standing for the well being and the future of your country. Let's cut the chase...Your choice is between the Americanism of Mitt Romney or the anti-Americanism of b. h. obama.

Republicans are tripping? No. One accidental candidate, Akin, belly-flopped on rape, and no one can figure out why, including, it appears, him,” GOP strategist Mary Matalin said, adding that she believes Democrats failed to make the case that Republicans are waging a “War on Women.”

“The presumption that all women are as obsessed with their ‘reproductive rights’ is retro, liberal tripe. Women are concerned about their jobs — or lack thereof, their bills, their families, the nation’s debt, the ‘new normal’—where the value of everything they planned on has gone down and the cost of everything they live on day to day has gone up,” she said.“In short, women are way more concerned about the kids they have, or hope to have, than the ones they may or may not abort.”

Of course the nutjob teabagger would say that about women, she doesn't have to worry, no one in their right mind would copulate with that dumb bitch.

She shouldn't worry about being raped either, all she has to do is talk, that should scare anyone away.
