As far as I'M concerned, President Obama is a far better candidate and a much better PERSON than Romney could ever be. That's why I'll VOTE FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA on November 6th.

What complete NONSENSE. President Obama has been a strong SUPPORTER of women and women's reproductive rights. As opposed to the spoiled little rich boy Romney, who is trying to take those rights away from women.

By the way, goofy, it was the right-wing, misogynistic moron RUSH LIMBAUGH who first called Sandra Fluke the "s" word, just because she didn't back down from expressing her views publicly. The term was used as a slight to Limbaugh, who is so deserving of insults and ridicule.

This could not be a slap at Rush - he is not a woman - nor could he be a SLUT FOR OBAMA. Obama hates women and that is why he is all for the buttons and he does not care that they are referred to as SLUTS - if he cared he would have told the women NOT to wear them or call themselves SLUTS FOR OBAMA.

The old man is too befuddled to realize that the women were teasing Limbaugh and his uptight, shriveled-gonad goons.

What, in your mind makes Obama better presidential material than Gov Romney?

And Obama has turned you all into saying you are SLUTS FOR OBAMA. Obama was the one that said Romney hated women and you believed him. I can not understand why any woman would believe that when Romney has been married to his wife for many years. There were women at the RNC that spoke highly of Romney and of the help he has provided for them and their families.

My age - I DO NOT have one foot on the banana peel and the other foot in the grave yet.

Why would I be "pissed"? I am not trying to buy anything. Not my fault you can't see who the real phoney is. Obama has been your phoney since day one. Romney happens to be a good and decent man, so you wouldn't understand that, and I don't expect you to. I could care less who you vote for. You're too worried about your abortion rights, so vote for your man.

They don't trust the backwards-thinking politicians that seem to never go away. They look out for you and I. They may seem "hysterical" and may seem paranoid, but should they ever back down and allow the extremists to get their way, G-d help us *all*.
You know, I don't get it. Nothing has happened to abortion rights, or any other "womens" rights in forever, yet the hysteria is here. The President alone cannot overturn Roe. It would be fought tooth and nail for eons. I don't think Romney is backwards thinking at all. I'm still befuddled by all the anger here. Do you consider Romney and "extremist"?

Thats right Ladi! And extremism is being pushed further everyday!

I have a cousin years ago fell into the "born again" crap. She walked around like a zombie, eyes glazed over and constantly quoting the bible. She told me that her religious group was being encouraged to run for office starting at the local level. She said that this is where they would start and then they would move in to higher office to take this country back for god and religion would rule the land. I though she was nuts, I don't think that anymore.

No, I don't. I always felt him to be a moderate. Which is why I liked him. At least he used to be. Now he keeps changing his position on things. And he's surrounding himself with extremists. I'm confused by him. I'm not just talking abortion, I'm talking about economic policy, health reform, and other issues.

Granted, the President alone can not overturn RvW, but he can appoint justices to the SCOTUS. And they can pass laws that are less than favourable to women's rights. This is a gradual eroding, G. It's subtle. I see posts on here each and every day. So many people, so many *men*, wishing things were the way they were in the "olden days", where women knew their place.

We have to be vigilant. Just like we can never again have the Holocaust, we can never again relinquish our rights.

That's pretty scary, for all of us.

I mean, some Christians might welcome that, but they should keep in mind that should this door to a theocracy open, what's to stop a Muslim faction from doing the same thing?

It is in *everyone's* best interests to maintain the separation of church (all religion) and state, and maintain our secular democracy. So that we may continue to worship who we want, where we want, and when we want. Not only freedom from religion, but freedom *of* religion. For ALL.
