The terror is in the United States with the Democrats launching an offensive attack on Ann Romney.

Obama gives the nod, and the attacks begin. Democrat women attacking her for raising 5 boys and saying she never worked a day in her life.

Are they TRYING to say that Michelle Obama is better than Ann Romney?

Make my day!

I saw this in the news, how disgusting! As if raising 5 children, boys no less, is a cinch! I find it gravely insulting when some women denigrate EXACTLY what their own mothers probably did, stay home and raise the children to be successful citizens. I raised mine as a stay at home mother vs a working mother and believe me, working is much easier, just drop off the kids and go to work, let someone else deal with the temper tantrums, teaching them manners and how to eat with utensils, of course they will also get their values from the caregiver not the parents. Really, just how low will the democrat party stoop to try to win?

Re: Iran, playing pussyfoot with them is not going to work, keep playing these games and they will have a bomb in short order. Obama needs to work from a sense of power not try to placate them or do the equivalent of sending a "Stern Letter". They laugh at him, he's shown himself to be a very weak leader, if a leader at all.

and obama & co. are jumping thru hoops trying to distance themselves from what they no doubt orchastrated...
too bad the story won't go any further...i guarentee the mainstream won't mention a thing about this. it doesn't fit their agenda of only airing the news that helps THEIR cause, or, hurts their opposition. just like they ignored the story of the nbc producer editing the zimmerman 911 call ...

i know romney can beat obama in a national election. i'm not so sure romney can beat the liberal media...that's who he's REALLY running against!

Michelle Obama part of alleged 'patient dumping' scheme in Chicago

July 27, 2009
By Kathy Shaidle

Just minutes after President Obama’s disastrous prime-time press conference touting his “health care” plan, FOX News aired a special segment about a so-called “patient-dumping” scandal in Obama’s hometown, Chicago.

And the scandal may very well involve First Lady Michelle Obama herself.

As is typical in many large urban centers, many of Chicago’s poor were visiting hospital emergency rooms for non-emergencies. While she was a highly-paid Vice President at the prestigious University of Chicago Medical Center, Mrs. Obama duly concocted the Urban Health Initiative (UHI) as a solution.

Under the UHI, Medicaid/Medicare patients were redirected from the Medical Center’s ER, to small, faraway clinics — thus freeing up the Medical Center’s precious resources (critics say) for the exclusive use of wealthier patients with private insurance.

Thanks to the efforts of Obama’s top political strategist (and long-time Chicago machine player) David Axelrod, the program was launched with millions of dollars in federal funding. According to the Chicago Sun-Times:

Another Obama adviser and close friend, Dr. Eric Whitaker, took over the Urban Health Initiative when he was hired at U. of C. in October 2007. Whitaker previously had been director of the Illinois Department of Public Health. Obama has said he recommended Whitaker for the state job, giving his name to Tony Rezko, who helped Gov. Blagojevich assemble his Cabinet. Rezko, a former fund-raiser for Obama and Blagojevich, was convicted in June on federal corruption charges tied to state deals.

Even though “patient dumping” was outlawed by President Reagan decades ago, critics have said Michelle Obama's UHI violates “the spirit of that law, if not the letter.”

Chicago Sun-Times: U. of C. shunning poor patients? Obama’s wife, 3 aides tied to plan to free up space


By Tim Novak and Chris Fusco
August 23, 2008

Sen. Barack Obama’s wife and three close advisers have been involved with a program at the University of Chicago Medical Center that steers patients who don’t have private insurance — primarily poor, black people — to other health care facilities.

Michelle Obama — currently on unpaid leave from her $317,000-a-year job as a vice president of the prestigious hospital — helped create the program, which aims to find neighborhood doctors for low-income people who were flooding the emergency room for basic treatment. Hospital officials say such patients hinder their ability to focus on more critically ill patients in need of specialized care, such as cancer treatment and organ transplants.

Obama’s top political strategist, David Axelrod, co-owns the firm, ASK Public Strategies, that was hired by the hospital last year to sell the program — called the Urban Health Initiative — to the community as a better alternative for poor patients. Obama’s wife and Valerie Jarrett, an Obama friend and adviser who chairs the medical center’s board, backed the Axelrod firm’s hiring, hospital officials said.

Another Obama adviser and close friend, Dr. Eric Whitaker, took over the Urban Health Initiative when he was hired at U. of C. in October 2007. Whitaker previously had been director of the Illinois Department of Public Health. Obama has said he recommended Whitaker for the state job, giving his name to Tony Rezko, who helped Gov. Blagojevich assemble his Cabinet. Rezko, a former fund-raiser for Obama and Blagojevich, was convicted in June on federal corruption charges tied to state deals.

Medical center officials and Obama’s presidential campaign staff say the Urban Health Initiative — along with a three-year-old companion program called the South Side Health Collaborative — will dramatically improve health care for thousands of South Side residents. They say that, rather than having to wait hours at U. of C.’s emergency room, those patients get seen sooner and at less expense at neighborhood clinics and other hospitals. U. of C. even offers them a ride on a shuttle bus to other centers and sometimes provides the doctors at those facilities.

“Senator Obama sees community health centers as a vital part of efforts to invest in prevention and reduce costs,” said Ben LaBolt, an Obama spokesman.

But the Urban Health Initiative has critics, including South Side residents and medical professionals.

“I’ve heard complaints from a handful of constituents, but I’ve also had calls from people in the health care profession complaining,” said Ald. Toni Preckwinkle, whose 4th Ward is just north of the hospital.“The medical professionals who have come to me are accusing the university of dumping patients on its neighboring institutions.… Whether it’s being implemented in the way that’s in the best interest of the patient, I can’t tell you.”

Sen. John McCain, Obama’s Republican opponent, criticized the Democratic presidential hopeful Friday for having pledged on the campaign trail to expand health care for Americans at the same time his top political strategist “was running a campaign to cut coverage for the poor.”

Attacking Ann Romney — yeah, that’s the ticket democrats!

By Jennifer Rubin



Overnight President Obama’s faux “war on women” attack on Mitt Romney blew up in his face. It is fitting that a gimmick should boomerang this quickly and this severely, maybe giving Romney the first big break of the race.

By now you’ve probably heard that Hilary Rosen, a sometime White House adviser and frequent visitor, on CNN attacked the most popular person in the campaign, Ann Romney, with a cartoon version of left-leaning feminism, declaring that the mother of five who has battle multiple sclerosis and cancer “never worked a day in her life.”(Query why the conservative on the panel sat there like a lump on the log. Maybe a few more conservative women on CNN would balance the coverage. He claims to have “missed it.” Indeed.) No, this really happened.

Honest. But it didn’t stop. Rosen took to Twitter to dig her hole deeper and deeper, never apologizing.(At this point Republicans should be humming Dayenu.)

But it didn’t end there. Obama political hacks David Axelrod and Jim Messina took to Twitter to condemn the remarks and to call on Rosen to apologize, thereby making Rosen seem closer to the president’s campaign (and the campaign more responsible for her gaffe than might otherwise be the case). And — yup — it didn’t end there. Ann Romney now is on Twitter and got a gazillion followers in just hours. Her first tweet was a keeper:“I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work.”

Needless to say, the “war on women” by the democrats has taken on a whole new tone.

The Jackasscrat's “war on women” has taken on a whole new tone


Let’s count the ways this is just awful for Obama and/or Democrats more generally. There are a few, so find a comfortable seat.

1) Obama, as a conservative pundit put it, just went a long way toward solidifying Romney’s base, especially among social conservatives who loathe elites who look down on stay-at-home moms.

2) It feeds into the cliche that liberals love humanity but hate people. In this case they love womanhood but treat their own employees and conservative women like dirt.

3) The “war on women” just became Romney’s vehicle for narrowing the gender gap, especially among women with children.

4) This points to the absurdity of Obama’s approach to the campaign — nonstop negativity and gimmicks.When one goes awry, what’s he got to say?

5) There will be a new term in politics: A Rosen. That is a gaffe of epic proportions that is magnified by the gaffer’s own stubbornness and insistence on digging deeper.

6) Hilary Rosen, who makes her living in PR (irony alert), better find other work. She’s really terrible at her job, if this is any indication.

7) Ann Romney becomes an even bigger superstar and asset than she was before. Provided she doesn’t overplay it, she can be truly successful in reaching out to female voters and humanizing her husband.

8) Romney has the chance for one of those revealing human moments that the campaign has generally shied away from. Some righteous anger or a loving defense of his wife, you can bet, is coming up. It’s the equivalent of the Al-Tipper Gore kiss. Americans, if Romney does this well, are about to say,“Wow! He has a pulse.”

9) This is possibly the first Twitter-driven political kerfuffle, playing out in the evening and without much input from either traditional media or blogs. The good news for Republicans is they have learned to master social media. Better news is that the Romney team moved with “lightning speed” to capi­tal­ize on this. Team Romney is more nimble than it has been in the past.

10) I suspect not even the left blogosphere is going to save the president on this one. Yes, the bloggers will snort that this is all overplayed (not very credible from those who wrote thousands of words about Etch-a-Sketch). Yes, they will say that even though Messina and Axelrod leapt to condemn Rosen’s remarks, that it is not like Obama spoke these words.(Cue the laughter from Eric Fehrnstrom.) But really this is such a mess, it may be better to cut their losses, condemn Rosen for being idiotic and try to move on. Good luck with that, fellas.

It's hard to beat an incumbent
It's hard to beat a bias media
It's hard to beat a national rating of like-ability at 62%.
It will take a STRONG Republican Nominee to dethrone King Obama
Romney is not a strong present. Also he will be attacked about the many off shore accounts in the Cayman, Switzerland and his connection with Goldman Sachs.
If Romney is not more of the same than why have all his wealth in foreign banks. Why not in America banks.
Could it be that he knows what is going to happen about deflating of the American dollar. In fact Switzerland in not accepting American currency anymore. A conversion has to be made
Romney is no better then Obama
The only one who could give Obama a good fight for the WH is Gingrich. He is definitely a Strong presents and can debate the issues with a strong comeback on attacks. I don't see Romney doing it, When he is put on the hot seat he stutters and repeats himself.
America is on a slippery slope if either one is elected.But then again what has been put in motion for decades will be hard to defuse

Consertives need to have a come back on the Democratic attack on woman.

Obama's White House staff who are woman are paid 18% less the their male counterparts doing the same job.

If Obama is fair toward woman then why are woman paid less then male workers doing the same job.

This could be use by the Republican agians Obama but isen't

- Gingrich is NOT strong unless you consider his odorous work with nancy pelosi. He's been on every side of every issue at one time of another. He's capable of understanding a lot but is not someone people will follow. He's done. Enough.


Christi is NOT running.

Allen West is fantastic but needs more experience (despite idiot obama only having 160 days) and I'd like to see him run something public or private.

Paul Ryan is an excellent Budget and Finance person that understands the financial peril Obama has put us in. I like him for OMB Director in the Romney WH.

Marco Rubio is fantastic and my comments to Allen West apply here.

Herman Cain had a great message and I can't fault him for choosing to make amends with his wife over campaigning but he's out of the race.



All that Said, every single one of those guys would do a better job than the marxist pig obama.
