One rarely hears democrat pundits criticizing Obama, but one surely hears republican pundits criticizing Romney (and McCain).

There is no solidarity in the republican party.

Two EXCELLENT articles that need to be read by the Romney campaign and by republicans:

Dr. Charles Krauthammer: "THE CASE AGAINST RE-ELECTION"
http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/the-ca...

1. Obama's Worst Recovery in history (42 consecutive mths of 8+ UNemployment)

2. Obama's 'riff' of "YOU DIDN'T BUILD THAT"-with your sweat and smarts-it's your government that deserves the credit

3. Obama's $831 million stimulus that was supposed to bring unemployment below 6% and 'reinvest in America'(what federal project has Obama created?)

4.Obama's RADICAL healthcare reform that will cost $1.68 TRILLION in the 1st 10 yrs.

5. Obama's Failed Transformation of Energy

A. Cap&Trade even turned down by Obama's own democrat senate
B. Obama's War on fossil fuels by govt fiat, Keystone pipeline (Obama doesn't want the USA to burn Canada's sand, but China can do it! plus jobs for Americans if allowed),
C. no drilling in gulf (federal judge found this to be illegal)

and

Peggy Noonan's piece: "A NATION THAT BELIEVES NOTHING"
http://online.wsj.com/article/declarations.ht...

1. Talk about CALIFORNIA -bankruptcies, the reduced city services, the businesses (and people) fleeing (think taxes)

2. Talk about the states that work and the states that don't, why they work and why they don't, and how we have to take the ways that work and apply them nationally

Mitt needs to stop fighting the, "I'm nicer than Obama" campaign and cite what Obama and the democrats have done WRONG and POORLY.

START TODAY!

HHS Can’t Waive Workfare

Here’s why.

By Andrew M. Grossman & Robert Rector

The welfare reform of 1996 stands as perhaps the most important entitlement reform in the nation’s history. Its successes stem from a core requirement that able-bodied parents must work, search for work, or train for work to be eligible for public assistance.

But now, under the guise of providing states greater “flexibility” in operating their welfare programs, the Obama administration claims unjustifiable authority to weaken or waive the work requirements at the heart of the reform law. There’s just one problem: The law is clear that those requirements can’t be waived.

The work requirement was no doubt the most controversial provision of the 1996 welfare reform. Even after President Clinton twice vetoed reform bills, Congress refused to budge on Section 407, which defines “Mandatory Work Requirements.” Clinton reluctantly signed the final “workfare” measure into law.

Fast forward to July 12, when the Obama administration’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued an “information memorandum” to state welfare-plan administrators regarding “waiver and expenditure authority.” Essentially, HHS secretary Kathleen Sebelius contends that a separate provision gives HHS authority to waive the law.

The HHS memorandum contained a single paragraph of convoluted legal analysis supporting this novel contention. It claims that because that other provision “authorizes waivers concerning Section 402,” and because Section 402 mentions Section 407,“HHS has authority to waive compliance with this 402 requirement and authorize a state to test approaches and methods other than those set forth in Section 407.”
But this claim by HHS is wrong.

Section 407 establishes stand-alone work requirements for state welfare plans that brook no exceptions. And Section 407 is absent from the list of sections that the HHS secretary does have the authority to waive. That alone proves that Sebelius lacks any authority to waive the work requirements.

RNC confirms Ron Paul will be up for nomination

The Republican National Convention is quickly approaching (August 26th). For over the past year, avid Ron Paul supporters have won delegate spots in various state conventions across the country. Through this hard-work, Ron Paul will officially be allowed to be nominated for the nominee of the Republican Party.

For the past three days, Ben Swann (Fox19 Cincinnati) has been in contact with a Republican Rules Committee member. In order for a candidate to be elected for the Republican Party nomination, the candidate must have a plurality in five or more states. If by rule, binding and non-binding policies are applied to delegates, it would still not affect the process of voting for placement of a candidate's name into the potential nominee ballot. Presidential hopeful Ron Paul does have a plurality in five or more states (Nevada, Maine, Minnesota, Louisiana, and Iowa). This means that Ron Paul will be eligible for nomination on August 26th in Tampa Bay.

First of all, just focus electing the next president Romney and that is all it is.

The name of Romney's VP can be disclosed before the convention because that will be next VP for USA and people so that they know that

Romney people do not need Bush visits and his former associates around, but show that the new dynamics, which will be many brand new people, who don't dig Bush former policies, as Obama is running them. Stay clean from former Bush.

They don't need Cheney or Rove to make comments nor much involvement because it is only Obama doing former Bush policies, from debt building, taking jobs away, illegal immigration, to Afghanistan, etc. and more.

Gingrich, Santorum, Perry, Palin, McCain, Coulter and rest of many and so on, as these many other people for the good future, should all be for doing great efforts in electing Romney , beyond appearance in the Convention.

By the way, Bain is not Bane in the batman movie, just like bean is not equal to beam , as some people think, because Romney is the rising star, and the great man, doing good for the USA people.

That is exactly what the people of US need-- a great rising man by electing utmostly Romney for 2012 = the new great man for the next president.

Republican politics, it makes me laugh.

Romney?????
I guess he's the bestest. He is willing to change his convictions at the drop of a hat.
He had to liberal up to get elected in new hampshire, and has to conservitate to win republican votes. Good thing he is willing to say whatever it takes to make who ever he is speaking to happy.
That's really what we need in a president....no spine, no values. Romney fills that bill excellently.
Good luck.

Why does Ron Paul scare the liberal Republican RINOs so much?

Well it's because he is a TRUE conservative. They know that Ron Paul won't give blank checks to his fellow GOPers like the RINO Bush has and Rich Money will.

Obviously the libelous excrement is trying very hard to show his outrage over sandusky all while he continually turns a blind eye to the crimes of obama's mentor bill ayers...Based on his ZERO outrage about bill ayers being a mentor for a POTUS one can safely conclude his outrage over sandusky is fake. You cannot have genuine outrage for one criminal without having genuine outrage for the other criminal who is indeed worse according to laws, prosecutors, etc....So the democRat excrement runs and hides from the fact he's a gutless wonder who gave obama/ayers a pass...over and over.

Mitt Romney, Bain, Reagan And Salvadorian Death Squads…
August 8, 2012
By Teeluck Sooknarine

Mitt Romney had strong financial support in the early days of Bain Capital from some pretty secretive people in his past, people linked to the famous death squads of El Salvador. There were many powerful Salvadoran families in the 1980&#8242;s who having made large sums of money through various means, needed a way to move the money out of the country and invest it in more ‘legitimate’ ventures, an effort to ‘clean’ the funds and make them grow in a legal way.

The 1980&#8242;s was a time of great turmoil in El Salvador resulting in the deaths of more than 70,000 people, with assassinations, death squads, and every other bad thing under the sun happening all at once in the country… the Reagan Administration working with the powers in control of the country at that time, did many things that do not look so good on paper, now that the truth is being dug up due to Mitt’s run for the presidency.

The Reagan Administration’s dealings with the government provided the cover and connections needed for the powerful oligarchy to move money into many American ventures, including a certain new and budding Bain Capital, through a fresh and young Mitt Romney, who was just cutting his teeth in the vulture capitalism arena at the time…

“Back in 1984, wealthy Salvadoran families were looking for safe investments as violence and upheaval engulfed the country. The war, which pitted leftist guerrillas against a right-wing government backed by the Reagan administration, ultimately left over 70,000 people dead in the tiny nation before the United Nations brokered a peace deal in 1992. The vast majority of violence, a UN truth commission later found, was committed by rightist death squads and the military, which received U.S. training and $6 billion in military and economic aid. The Reagan administration feared that El Salvador could become a foothold for Communists in Central America.”…Salon.com

“A Costa Rica-born Bain official named Harry Strachan invited friends and former clients in Central America to a presentation about the fund with Romney in Miami. The group found his presentation impressive and “signed up for 20% of the fund,” according to Strachan’s memoir. That was about $6.5 million, according to the Globe. Bain partners themselves were putting up half the money, according to Strachan. Thus the Central American investors had contributed 40 percent of the outside capital.”

Apparently Mitt Romney had no problem taking what is arguably blood money, to do his vulture capital investments…this is not the guy you want as President of the free world.
