(This article was featured in the April 10th edition of the Long Island Herald)   Is your freedom of speech your freedom to spend your own money? It is according to the Supreme Court. Last Wednesday, by a vote of 5-4, the court threw out the aggregate limit, currently $123,200, on what any individual can give to all federal candidates and political committees over a two-year election cycle. The vote was split, with the conservative justices in the majority. “Those caps infringe on First Amendment free-speech rights,” Chief Justice John Roberts stated, “and aren’t justified by the public interest in fighting political corruption.” In the 2012 election, both President Obama and Mitt Romney collected well over $1 billion in campaign contributions. Here in New York, on both the federal and state level, we are seeing millions of dollars being raised by individuals and interest groups to ensure political victories. While the Supreme Court tossed out the aggregate limit on what one person ...
Frank Rich on GM: It’s hard to imagine how this story could be worse. GM knew it had a defect that was making its products unsafe and killing people. There was clearly an internal cover-up. And at least some of this happened while taxpayers were bailing out the company, and GM’s bankruptcy status was providing it with legal protection from liability. I agree with the position that if corporations are people — as both the Supreme Court and the auto-industry scion Mitt Romney claim — then corporations should go to jail. Congress can’t do much in this case except hold this week’s hearings and dramatize the scale of the problem. Criminal investigations are needed along with the civil lawsuits and financial reparations already afoot. And Mary Barra has to stop this I-know-nothing routine. Her official video apology — “terrible things happened” — is a nausea-inducing example of egregious corporate “messaging.” She sounded like an airline executive on a fasten-your-seat-belt video, though ...
Truer words were never written: For a young voter or voter of color, voting for Democrats isn't a matter of hope for a better future. It's basically a defensive crouch to prevent the insane sociopaths from taking over. To provide real hope, Democrats would have to start pushing for a $15 minimum wage, for basic universal income, for single-payer healthcare, for a green jobs Apollo Program, for student loan forgiveness, and similar policies. As it is, there's no real reason for an infrequent Democratic voter to come to the polls. Sure, it's important to stop the likes of Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney from sitting in the White House, and appointing decent judges to the Supreme Court is nice. But there's no way Democrats are going to solve their midterm problem without providing a real, positive vision for the country.

Remember when Harry Reid said he had proof that Mitt Romney hadn't paid taxes for ten years? Remember when Obama had been refused an honorary doctorate by Arizona State University and remarked, "President [Michael] Crowe and the Board of Regents will soon learn all about being audited by the IRS"? "ISSA: That's one of our questions. She says things like they put pressure. So e-mails indicate that there was pressure.

A: Because it's too easy to make jokes at Mitt Romney's expense. Q: Why did Barack Obama bulldoze the Rose Garden? A: He didn't want any Bushes at the White House. Q: What is Obama's archenemy? A: The constitution Q: What does Simba and Obama have in common? A: One is an African Lion and the other one is a lyin African! Q: Did you hear about Obama's plan to end unemployment? A: He's gonna expand the NBA to 32,000 teams! Mitt Romney puts women in Binders. Obama puts Women on the "Supreme Court" Stop judging Tiger Woods, Obama screwed the whole country! 28% of Americans voted for President Obama just because they enjoy watching white people embarrass themselves after he wins. If Obama controlled Halloween, would he take all the candy from the kids trick-or-treated and give it to the kids who didn't trick-or-treat? If Barack Obama has a mandate to do anything, it's to raise Mitt Romney's taxes If you think Allen West won but President Obama didn't, ask someone to hold your wallet for you. 93% of African Amer ...

“Regressives take the opposite positions. In 2012 their most prominent members were the House majority leader, Eric Cantor; the House budget chief, Paul Ryan; the former Speaker Newt Gingrich; the former senator Rick Santorum; the former majority leader *** Armey; Governor Rick Perry of Texas; Representative Michele Bachmann of Minnesota; the former Alaska governor Sarah Palin; Representative Ron Paul of Texas; and the former Massachusetts governor and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney; along with the antigovernment guru Grover Norquist, several Fox News anchors, the Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas, and the Republican strategist Karl Rove. Behind them—funding their activities but carefully remaining out of the spotlight—are the media mogul Rupert Murdoch, the billionaires Charles and David Koch, and a coterie of other big-moneyed interests on and off Wall Street who view the regressive movement as their best means of maintaining their power and privilege and ac ...
Has President Obama confused you? He sure has me. Here's my Weekly Comments. Confusion reins on health insurance Nov.10, 2013 COLUMBUS: Are you confused? I sure am, and I’m the first to admit it. President Obama has been saying for three years that if you like your Health Care plan you can keep it. If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. Period. Exclamation point! Before the Affordable Care Act passed, Speaker Pelosi announced that Congress had to pass it before we could find out what was in it. Now it appears that President Obama still hasn’t found out what’s in it. I rather doubt Mrs. Pelosi knows either. President Obama said he is sorry that millions of people are losing their health insurance after he assured them otherwise. But he still did not apologize for misleading the public in the first place, and for doing it consistently for more than three years. If he had come clean after the bill was signed and finally passed muster with the Supreme Court (after changing the word “penalty ...
"Mitt Romney was wrong. The conservative members of the Supreme Court were wrong. The modern-day corporation (specifically the law which binds them to profits over people) is antithetical to expecting them to be cooperative members of our society. Of course there are exceptions to the rule — but the original purpose of corporations (serving the public good) has been lost over the years — and today most serve only the very narrow interests of the investment class." - Tom Joad
I just had a strange thought. Imagine that instead of Barack Obama; Mitt Romney was elected last year. Then imagine if 30 or 40 members of the Congressional Black Caucus got together and decided there was a law that they hated, and wanted to see repealed. Now keep in mind - this is a law that was passed in the House of Representatives, as well as the Senate, signed into law by President Romney, and even ruled as constitutional by the Supreme Court. Then, let’s say they told President Romney; if you don’t help us repeal this law, we are going to shut down the government, and cause 800,000 federal workers to go without pay for who knows how long. And in two weeks, when it’s time to vote on increasing the debt ceiling – we are not going to vote for that either if we don’t get our way. Yea, we know that could cause an economic collapse – but we hate this law, and we want it gone. And you better help us get rid of it – or the entire country will pay the price. I wonder how that scenario wou ...
It seems to me that Obamacare is a law. Whether you like it or not. "The Republicans ignored the fact that the Affordable Care Act was approved by both houses of Congress, was signed by the president, was declared constitutional by a conservative Supreme Court and was at least indirectly endorsed by the American People in their sweeping 2012 re-election of Obama over Republican Mitt Romney in an election in which Health Care was a major issue. The GOP has made 40 legislative attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which is its right. It also tried to get rid of Obamacare through the courts and through the elective process, which were also its right. But tying the defunding of Obamacare to passage of the federal budget was a disgraceful, unacceptable tactic, and it has led to a government shutdown that is damaging to the American People, the economy and the United States' reputation in the world." - newstimes.com
President Obama ran for office on affordable Health Care for all. He got elected. Our congress created legislation that does this, called The Affordable Care Act. It passed both house and senate and the president signed the bill into law. The AMA and the Insurance industry backed this legislation. President Obama ran for re-election against Mitt Romney who promised to kill the ACA on "day one". President Obama got re-elected. The Affordable Care Act was ruled constitutional by the very conservative Supreme Court. Trying to change settled law by staging a government shut-down is not the way to change settled law. The majority of U.S. Citizens want this law to succeed. I don't know about you, but I believe in a Democratic Republic the majority wins.
MEANWHILE, IN AN ALTERNATE UNIVERSE: 2001: After the US Supreme Court orders ballot-counting to continue in Florida, President Gore is sworn into office. America suffers a terrorist attack on Sept. 11, 2001. Candlelight vigils are held in Iran and elsewhere in the Muslim world, mourning the tragedy. American forces wage war on Al Qaeda in Afghanistan, pushing them back into the mountains bordering Pakistan. The Gore Administration makes it a priority to warm relations with the Muslim world, making it clear that the conflict in Afghanistan is only against Al Qaeda. An Arab Spring begins, starting in Iraq where an increasingly unpopular Saddam Hussain is eventually ousted from office. The economy continues to grow, but Gore's popularity wanes toward the end of his first term. 2005: Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney is sworn in as President, with war hero John Mccain as his Vice-President. Romney's first priority is to promote universal Health Care patterned on what he had begun in Massachusetts (and ...
President Obama's explanation for the GOP's actions: President Obama did something big in this statement. He revealed the real Republican motivation for shutting down the government. Republicans are angry that they lost the election in 2012. They are angry that the Supreme Court ruled the ACA to be constitutional. They are angry that Barack Obama is still the president. They are channeling this anger into taking destructive action against the economy. Republicans want to make sure that the American People pay for their vote to reelect the president last November. House Republicans are out to ruin Obama’s legacy. If they think a government shutdown will ruin Obama, they’ll do it. It it will take not raising the debt limit and causing a default, they have no problem with that too. Mostly though, they want to make the people that Mitt Romney called the 47% suffer for supporting this president.
This is serious. Mike Lee and the other obstructionsts are holding the American People (Utahns) hostage in an attempt to KILL Obamacare. They have tried over 40 times to Repeal the ACA which is the law of the land, and it has been held Constitutional by the Supreme Court, andit was approved again when Barack Obama was elected President and Mitt Romney (who said he would repeal Obamacare) was defeated. The Republicans are domestic terrorists to do this to our country. Tis beyond shameful.

Tea Party darling, Senator Ted Cruz said this morning that “the American People overwhelmingly reject Obamacare.” In fact, polling this week shows that 56% of the American People want to uphold the Affordable Care Act. President Obama ran on healthcare reform. He won. Obamacare was passed and signed into law. The Republicans challenged it and then the Supreme Court ruled that the law is Constitutional. Mitt Romney ran on repealing Obamacare. He lost. And President Obama was elected to a second term. As of this writing, the Republicans in the House have senselessly voted to either repeal or defund Obamacare 43 times. Useless, wasteful grandstanding considering the Democrats have a majority in the Senate and the President would veto any attempt to kill Obamacare. Then Cruz went on to say, “Obamacare isn't working," Yet, the law hasn’t even been fully implemented yet. So that statement in itself is completely disingenuous. It doesn't even start for most people until Tuesday, October 1st. Thus far, so ...
We have already had this fight in the 2012 Presidential Election! I feel like I am in the movie Ground Hog's Day. If the Affordable Care Act (aka "Obamacare",which has been law for 3 1/2 years) is so bad let it fail on it's own. Why spend in excess of 1 Billion Dollars to repeal a law, by misleading the public, which the Supreme Court ruled was constitutional, AND Obama won his reelection that centered around keeping the Affordable Care Act? Because they know it is not going to fail. Now the GOP in Congress are demanding everything that Mitt Romney had already proposed and lost the election on and if President Obama does not meet those same demands of Mitt Romney's, you're going to shut down the Government!! Get over it, you lost! Quit sabotaging the American People for the sake of the corporations! The American People have VOTED!!
 The other day I wrote a two part piece about American journalist in exiile Greg Palast. Unfortunately, I made an error in stating the title of the book in which he reported that an institute named after James A. Baker III -- the confidant of George H. W. Bush, who has represented the Saudi Royal family and whose law firm represents Halliburtoon, the company formerly headed by *** Cheney. Baker also handled the theft of the Florida Presidential Election that an ideological right wing majority of the US Supreme Court blessed thus crowning George W. Bush president. That information is in Palast's book Armed Madhouse. I mistakenly attritubed it to to another Palast book, The Best Democracy Can Buy. I do recommend that book too. It discusses how the globlization pushed by the Bushista failies seeks to privatized (sound familiar?) everything at the expense of ordinary folks. Government can't make a profit because it often has to provide services for people who because of disability and/or extreme poverty ca ...
Today in History -- Friday, June 14 (Rod Argent of The Zombies, Argent; Alan White of Yes, Plastic Ono Band) The Associated Press Today is Friday, June 14, the 165th day of 2013. There are 200 days left in the year. This is Flag Day. Today's Highlight in History: On June 14, 1777, the Continental Congress in Philadelphia adopted the Stars and Stripes as the national flag. On this date: In 1775, the Continental Army, forerunner of the United States Army, was created. In 1801, former American Revolutionary War General and notorious turncoat Benedict Arnold died in London. In 1922, Warren G. Harding became the first president heard on radio, as Baltimore station WEAR broadcast his speech dedicating the Francis Scott Key memorial at Fort McHenry. In 1940, German troops entered Paris during World War II; the same day, the Nazis began transporting prisoners to the Auschwitz (OWSH'-vitz) concentration camp in German-occupied Poland. In 1943, the U.S. Supreme Court, in West Virginia State Board of Education v. Ba ...
Harvard Law School has produced a large number of luminaries in law and politics including current President Barack Obama as well as 2012 Presidential candidate Mitt Romney. World leaders counted among its graduates include the current President of the Republic of China (Taiwan), Ma Ying-jeou; former Chief Justice of the Republic of the Philippines, Renato Corona; Chief Justice of Singapore Sundaresh Menon; former President of the World Bank Group, Robert Zoellick; current United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navanethem Pillay; and the former President of Ireland, Mary Robinson. Some 149 sitting United States federal judges are Harvard Law School graduates; six of the nine sitting justices of the Supreme Court of the United States attended the law school (Chief Justice John G. Roberts and Associate Justices Anthony Kennedy, Stephen Breyer, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Antonin Scalia and Elena Kagan). Seven sitting U.S. Senators graduated from the school. Harvard Law School has also educated a signif ...
IF YOU CAN'T BEAT THEM, CHEAT THEM!!! That is the philosophy of our Supreme Court which is hearing a case today that attempts to strike down the Voting Rights Act!!! Today Antonin Scalia called Section 5 of the Act "racial entitlement," so it sounds like they are ready to disinfranchise us of our right to vote, which we fought and died for. As well, Pennsylvania is going forth with a new law to change the rules of the Electoral College so that, rather than winner take all, the votes will be divided porportionally between the two candidates. If such a rule had been in place in all states during the last election, Mitt Romney would have won the election even though he did not win the most votes. The Republicans have determined that since they cannot win fair and square they will change the rules. Sound familiar? Please write to your congressmen, especially in Pennsylvania, and tell them that we will not go back to Jim Crow and we won't stand for them to rig elections so that republicans win whether t ...
In 2012, we all were given the opportunity to cast a ballot and say who we wanted in the White House whether it was the return of President Barack Obama or if we wanted Mitt Romney to become the 45th President of the United States. On that Tuesday in November, President Obama was reelected. There was something different about this campaign season. It was one that we hadn’t seen before. Not that the first African American President was seeking reelection, not that America had nominated it’s first Mormon candidate for President. It was the most expensive election in the country’s history.      Between each campaign, the Republican and Democratic National Committee and all the Super PACs, just over $2 billion had been spent. Imagine what you could do with $2 billion. How did it get this way? Why does it seem like the cost of an election goes up as if it’s being sold to the highest bidder? The Citizens United ruling by the Supreme Court in January of 2010 may have opened the flood gates some politi ...
During Saturday's Republican presidential debate in New Hampshire, hosted by ABC, co-moderator George Stephanopoulos bizarrely pressed candidate Mitt Romney on whether the former Massachusetts governor believes the U.S. Supreme Court should overturn a 1965 ruling that a constitutional right to priva...
The next big fix after the voting mess, should be the money spent on Presidential Elections. President Obama’s campaign and his supporters have spent $931 million, while those supporting Republican challenger Mitt Romney have spent more than $1 billion, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. I have just read that a big chunk of the money came from uber-wealthy, according to election experts. Some 149 super-rich donors gave $500,000 or more, contributing $290 million of the funds raised. Repealing the Citizens United decision should be a priority considering that in the Obama's second term, several conservative U.S. Supreme Court Justices could retire. It will be interesting to watch if striking the Citizens United decision will succeed and if this White House and the democratic operatives will pursue this cause. Spending close to $6 billion (according to some estimates) on the elections is OBSCENE!
Obama's real mandate is against America's bosses When workers are given a clear choice, they choose the man who fights for them. By John Stoehr Published 13 November 2012 16:26 Did President Barack Obama win a mandate from the American People last week? Fox News appears to think he didn't. Some people didn't vote for him. *** Morris doesn't see a mandate, though he foresaw a landslide for challenger Mitt Romney. Haley Barbour, the former head of the Republican National Committee, said the election was pretty much a tie. And the Wall Street Journal said Republicans, by dint of holding on to the House of Representatives, have a mandate equal to the president's. Bill Press offers a blunt retort. Those naysayers are not only pathetic, they're dead wrong. ... Obama didn't need the help of the Supreme Court. He won the election on his own. That's a mandate. With Florida, he won the electoral vote by 332 to 206. That's a mandate. ... He beat Romney in the popular vote by almost 3 million. That's a mandate. What ...
Women, listen up! If Mitt Romney had won the Presidential Election, women's right to choose may well have been forever changed in the United States. The United States Supreme Court currently has 4 very conservative Justices, 4 liberal Justices and one swing vote (Justice Kennedy). If Justice Kennedy or any of the liberal Justices are replaced in President Obama's second term, they would have been replaced by more very conservative Justices had Mitt Romney won the Presidential Election. What do you think would happen when new cases make their way to the U.S. Supreme Court, if one more conservative Justice were on the Court? Arizona is trying to "change what the Supreme Court has said" with regard to abortion law. A law "enacted in April by Arizona's Republican-led legislature to end most late-term abortions, contains an exception for narrowly defined medical emergencies. It includes as sanctions criminal penalties plus suspension or revocation of a physician's medical license if he or she violates th ...
So many people are so entrenched in their hatred for the President Obama that logic is no longer a factor. For this election to have even been this close shows that truth and honesty have lost their sting in American Culture. I can't even complain about real campaign promises launched in the Romney Campaign because he never delivered them. You only received some "thoughts" about what he considered unnecessary--stop funding PBS and NPR--there goes CSPAN, sides with those that had a silly notion that Pregnancy caused by Rape was a gift from God--so there goes Roe V. Wade if they had Supreme Court picks. FEMA was a demon agency that is useless--Mitt Romney lost the Eastern Seaboard but that should not be surprising. It's more coming in the term of losses for the Republican Party unless and until the relinquish some of these hard conservative stances. No one voted against the Republican Party--they voted for a liberal agenda. Political Parties are just cheap clothing--Political Philosophies are the SOULS of p ...
Beyond the President's resounding re-election and the Senate victories of Elizabeth Warren, Tammy Baldwin, and Claire Mccaskill, the thing that made me happiest was seeing how little effect the millions of dollars of "Dark Money" had in this election. Sheldon Adelson, the Las Vegas billionaire buddy of Mitt Romney, poured somewhere between 70 and 100 million into this election and couldn't even deliver Nevada. Charles and David Koch are believed to have spent something close to $400 million, including $20 million in Wisconsin, which not only went with Obama but also elected Tammy Baldwin, America's first openly *** Senator. I just love watching evil billionaires flush millions of their bucks down the toilet. Now the Supreme Court may say that money is free speech but maybe, at least to some degree, this election showed that it doesn't much matter how loudly and how often you say something if folks ain't buying what you're saying.
First, Oklahoma's Republican lawmakers were hoping the U.S. Supreme Court would throw out the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. When that didn't happen, they relied on a pledge by GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney to kill it as soon as he got to the White House.
Karl Rove is the co-founder and Senior Advisor to American Crossroads, a multifaceted organization that has raised massive amounts of money in order to get Mitt Romney elected to the presidency. •In the end, Rove spent between $90 million and $160 million of other people's money on Mitt Romney. That investment did not pay off. Some donors spent multi-millions with the belief that Rove and Romney would deliver victory, the highest donor giving $19.5 million. --Thank you Supreme Court and their decision on citizen united. We really need all this money out of our elections, it really could be better spent. What do you think Karl?--

I'm not even gonna gloat but this re-election effort began in 2009 with the Auto bailout and I realized Obama's ploy to pander to the mid- west. He continued the effort months later when he installed Sotomayor- a Hispanic, and of course a woman- to the Supreme Court. Student loan reform was log-rolled into Obamacare and Elena Kagan became another Justice. The vital coalition that re-elected Obama were brought on board early-on: Women, Youth, Minorities and most importantly Ohio. The remaining two years were 'just sidon dey look' as Mitt Romney 'self-deported' himself away from the White House with the help of the Tea Party. He had to climb a very high border fence built for him by Jan Brewer and Herman Cain. I love American politics, if you do the right things against all odds you'll be rewarded. In Obama's case, hugely!
Mitt Romney called the wrong person today, He should have called a Senior Advocate of the Supreme Court not his opponent. He needs to borrow a leaf from Nigerian candidates.only he did not emerge as a consensus choice. That is why I forgive him.
In the frenetic closing hours of a hard-fought presidential campaign, Mitt Romney has been ballyhooing his bipartisan credentials. It’s part of his final argument to persuadable voters that he’s really Moderate Mitt rather than the “severely conservative” Massachusetts governor of the Republican primaries. In Sanford, Fla., on Monday, Romney boasted that in Massachusetts, working with “a Democrat legislature—85 percent Democrat—I helped turn my state from deficit to surplus.” And the Republican nominee in his final major campaign speech Friday in West Allis, Wis., pledged, “When I’m elected, I will work with Republicans and Democrats in Congress. I will meet regularly with their leaders.” All this brings to mind a delicious story from Romney’s first days as governor in 2003. At a closed-to-the-press meeting with top legislative leaders, Romney told them about his private-sector management philosophy from Bain Capital, “My usual approach has been to set out the strategic vision fo ...
Here are some of the most important arguments for President Obama's re-election which have (to my great frustration) not been emphasized by President Obama and his campaign: (1) the next president is likely to appoint one or more Supreme Court Justices, including someone to replace liberal justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who is 79 and has been treated for Pancreatic Cancer, as well as hundreds of Federal Court judges who will serve for life, and Mitt Romney has pledged to appoint Supreme Court Justices who will repeal Roe V. Wade (the case which recognizes the constitutional right for women to have abortions); (2) Mitt Romney wants to repeal the Affordable Care Act ("Obamacare"), which prevents health insurers from denying people (including children with birth defects, women who have been the victims of domestic violence, and women who are pregnant) coverage based on pre-existing conditions (such as being pregnant or having suffered domestic abuse), outlaws annual and lifetime caps on insurance benefits, per ...
Gary Witcher & Everett Bethea: 1. The Supreme Court. The chair of Mitt Romney's Judicial Advisory Committee is the notorious Robert Bork, who was rejected by the U.S. Senate in 1987 due to his radical Christian Dominionist beliefs. Ted Kennedy's famous "Robert Bork's America" speech outlines the policy priorities of Bork, who has been specifically cited by Romney as a model for the sort of Supreme Court Justices he intends to appoint. When the next presidential term ends in January 2017, Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be 83 years old, Anthony Kennedy will be 80, and Stephen Breyer will be 79. If even one of these three justices feel like retiring between now and then, and a Republican president selects their replacement, there is a very good chance that Roe V. Wade will be overturned. Even if you don't care about abortion, this is going to be a pretty big deal. Since Roe V. Wade is inextricably connected to the implicit constitutional right to privacy, striking down Roe also means striking down other right-to-p ...
This may not be a News Flash to some of you, but while I attempt to watch Monday Night Football, I keep getting lured back to my computer with thoughts about tomorrow’s election. I feel I must share these thoughts with whomever is willing to listen. Tomorrow’s election between President Obama and Mitt Romney is a distraction. Those economic giants that continually feed the republican machine have just one thought in mind. Hold onto to the power that’s a step above the office of the presidency and the Supreme Court! Citizens United, remember who it covets and protects. Don’t forget that even if Obama wins he may still run into obstruction, in fact he probably will. The one thing that he is virtually assured of accomplishing is the selection/appointment of possibly three Supreme Court Justices. This fact is what scares the *** out of the “True One PerCenters”, those whose combined wealth exceeds that of entire nations. Those who drop billions on lobbyist to get legislation passed that wil ...
ROMNEY RYAN 2012. This will be my final pre-election post. I am supporting Mitt Romney. Prominent Christians including Joel Beeke and Wayne Grudem are too. In 2008, Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano vetoed a bill to ban partial-birth abortion - the seventh piece of pro-life legislation she vetoed. She vetoed every single pro-life bill she met. Who did Napolitano defeat to succeed as governor? Matt Salmon - a Mormon. "I believe marriage should be preserved as an institution for one man and one woman." - Mitt Romney "I think same-sex couples should be able to get married” - Barack Obama "I support the reversal of Roe V. Wade" - Mitt Romney "Roe vs. Wade protects a woman’s health and reproductive freedom" - Barack Obama "I will appoint conservative, strict constructionists to the judiciary." - Mitt Romeny. Obama appointed the pro-infanticide Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor. Five out of the nine current Supreme Court Justices have been serving for 18-26 years, and there is expected to be 2-3 appointments ...
Marc wrote this from prison: "After much reading about the Republican candidates for Senate, Mitt Romney, and the GOP platform; I urge anyone in those swings states to vote for President Obama and any Democrat over the Republican opponent. Considering Mitt's dangerous and reckless Bush-holdover foreign policy (and Bush's advisers), Mitt's fierce hostility to medical marijuana (worse than Obama's!), Mitt's promise of fundamentalist right wing appointments to Federal Courts and the Supreme Court, on women's rights & reproductive rights, on abortion, on NPR, on Planned Parenthood and well, on pretty much everything, Mitt Romney and the Republican candidates for the House and Senate are dangerous and to be feared! We'll have more success working with Democrats on reducing the military, a sane foreign policy, on pot/drug war, prison reform, and reproductive rights."
10 Reasons You Should Vote for Barack Obama 1.Barack Obama supports advances for black folks. The President provided $1.5 billion in 2010 to victimized black farmers as settlement in their longstanding class-action suit. He signed the Hate Crimes Bill in 2009 and also signed the Fair Sentencing Act in 2010 to reduce the racist disparity between incarceration for crack cocaine possession and for powder cocaine possession. 2. Barack Obama supports women’s rights. He signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act in 2009 to bring about gender pay equality and also signed the holistic Preventive Women’s Health Care Amendment that went into effect in August. He continues to fight to force Republicans to stop their opposition to his reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act. He appointed two female Supreme Court Justices and selected a female Secretary of State. 3. Mitt Romney makes Obama look like Karl Marx. Romney would destroy labor unions, exploit cheap labor overseas, give tax breaks to the filthy ric ...
Top 5 Reasons that I will NOT vote for Mitt Romney (see 1, 2 3, 4, 5 and 6 below) 7.What about Military Veteran’s benefits? The republican’s refused to pass the recent Veteran’s bill that was going to put unemployed veteran’s back to work. They are good at sending our kids to war but not taking care of them afterward. 8. The next president will probably appoint one or more Supreme Court Justices. That could change a lot of things you take for granted. You may disagree with abortion as do I, but I would not have one. However, I do not know what may be going on in a woman’s life for her to make that choice. Do we really want to get into the ethical decisions that woman and her doctor are making? If you disagree with abortion, work to make it unnecessary. 9. What about equal pay for equal work? Romney did not agree with Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009? If it is unnecessary as he claims, than what is the harm? 10. What about FEMA? Mitt Romney wanted to push that back to the stat ...
For my friends who have some hesitation to vote for Romney, I'd just ask you to keep these things in mind: 1. Justice Scalia just turned 78 2. Justice Kennedy will turn 78 later this yr 3. Justice Breyer will be 76 in Aug 4. Justice Ginsburg turned 81 about a wk ago. In addition, Justice Ginsburg has Pancreatic Cancer. 5 Justice Stephens has already said he would retire & is just waiting for Obama to be reelected. The next president could appoint as many as 5 new Justices over the next 4 yrs, or over the next 8 yrs if a new President gets a 2nd term. This election is about much more than the Obama-Care Tax. Whomever we elect as president in Nov is almost certainly going to choose at least 1 new member of the Supreme Court, in addition to hundreds of other life-tenured federal judges, all of whom will be making momentous decisions about our lives for decades to come." If you don't think it matters whether the guy making those calls is Mitt Romney or Barack Obama, Think Again. So, for anybody who is thinkin ...
IF YOU DON'T VOTE WHAT DO YOU THINK WILL HAPPEN. With Election Day now upon us, it's worth weighing the impacts of a Mitt Romney win on reproductive rights and Health Care. In general, Romney seems likely to cater to the extreme anti-choice faction of his party. Here's a sneak preview of possible scenarios: 1. The Supreme Court gets more anti-choice. All of the abortion-related decisions on the court in recent history have been a 5-4 (or 4-5) split, with Justice Anthony Kennedy as the swing vote. The court has four justices in their 70s right now, which means that the next president could have one or more opportunities to appoint new members. Romney has made it clear that he would like to see Roe V. Wade overturned, and would appoint federal judges and Supreme Court Justices that feel that way, too. Even if those appointees don't get to throw out Roe (at least, not right away), they could still make important decisions on state laws currently caught up in the court system, like laws requiring a sonogram b ...
Off to knock on some more doors to get Mitt Romney into the White House; Pete Hoekstra into the Senate; Justice Stephan Markman, Justice Brian Zahra, Judge Colleen O'Brien into the Supreme Court; Joe Barnabei, Kurt Heise and Patrick Somerville into the State House; Shannon Price, Laura Cox, and Connie Clark into the Wayne County Commission; Pat Williams, John Anthony, Greg Demopoulos, and Tom Yack in as Canton Trustees; John Dalton and Douglas Adams onto Schoolcraft College Board; Dr. Robert Steele and Dan Horning for Michigan Regent; Melanie Foster and Jeff Sakwa for MSU Board; and no votes on Proposals 2, 3, and 4. It may take longer than 10 seconds per door to get the message out ;)
The Romney I Battled Compared Marriage Equality for LGBT People to Slavery As leader of the group that defended the state Supreme Court decision in Mass. that legalized same-sex marriage, the author got a close-up view of what Romney really thinks of LGBT people. November 1, 2012 | Photo Credit: Evan Meyer / Shutterstock.com In offering up last week's "qualified endorsement" of Mitt Romney for president, the Log Cabin Republicans alleged that "as his record as Governor of Massachusetts suggests, [Romney] will not waste his precious time in office with legislative attacks on LGBT Americans." As soon as I read that, I knew I had to speak out. When Romney was governor, I headed up MassEquality, the campaign in Massachusetts to protect the nation's first freedom-to-marry court ruling. We then took on a broader portfolio, tackling LGBT equality issues across the board. The Log Cabin assertion is wildly incorrect. For most of his four years, Mitt Romney was relentlessly focused on taking away freedoms and pr ...
My wife just received this e-mail from Madeline Albright and she thought other women might be interested in what our former Secretary of State had to say: If you're reading this email, you're a woman, or you care about someone who is. This year, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, and the backers behind their ticket are not running on what one would call a pro-women agenda. They are running on a platform of paternalistic, outdated, chauvinistic ideas -- and in practice those ideas are genuinely harmful to women. Here's what women can expect if Romney-Ryan and the Republicans win: A repeal of Obamacare and the free preventive screenings it covers. A return to discrimination against women by insurance companies. No support in the fight for equal pay for equal work. Supreme Court Justice nominations based on radical ideology. Every election is important, but I think this one will truly define what America is about. This election is ours to win or lose -- and a win for Mitt Romney and Republicans is a big loss for Americ ...
Imagine the devastating consequences if Mitt Romney — AT&T's choice for president — were to occupy the Oval Office. He'd nominate Supreme Court Justices who would overturn Roe V. Wade. The military would get more money than it asked for, and the wealthy would pay even less in taxes than they do now. And Medicare and clean energy, along with Planned Parenthood and PBS, would get the short end of the stick. AT&T chose to bankroll this extremist by writing a check to the Romney campaign. This is the fifth straight Presidential Election where AT&T has supported only the Republican nominee. And what about Romney's running mate? Paul Ryan has a history of pushing extremist views in Congress, many of which were codified in his budget bill last year that would decimate the social safety net while slashing taxes for millionaires, billionaires and big corporations. And AT&T contributed to Ryan every single year since 1998, when he was first elected to Congress, for a total of $111,500.
The Supreme Court is getting old and the next president will have to a chance to appoint possibly two or three justices. It is important to have conservative control of the Senate and Mitt Romney as president. The press has already thought about it, an Obama win could possibly lead to Eric Holder, Deval Patrick, or both being appointed to the Supreme Court. That would be an absolute disgrace.
Oligarchy-Where the government is not of the people, by the people, for the people but of the business sector, by the bussiness sector, for the business sector. Our government is being bought and paid for by billionaires to perform against our interests. Citizens United abortive Supreme Court decision is a license to steal this election. Remember that decision and how it could get much worse with new Justices appointed by Mitt Romney. We could be a wholly own subsidiary of Kock Industries, Sheldon Adelson and Karl Rove, to mention a few.
Mitt Romney is willing to do anything to convince women he’s not a threat. He outright lied at the presidential debate about his position on birth control. Now, his campaign is running an ad claiming he’s not extreme when it comes to the issues of abortion and birth control. Let’s tell Romney that we’re not buying it. Add your name by Sunday at midnight. On Monday, we’ll send a binder to Romney’s campaign headquarters with the names of all the pro-choice voters who plan to vote for President Obama. I don’t just throw around the word “extreme.” Mitt Romney has earned this label. He is on record in support of allowing bosses to refuse contraceptive coverage to their employees. He says his top priority is to repeal Obamacare, which would block millions of women from getting birth control and other critical reproductive-Health Care. And Romney threatens almost every day to defund Planned Parenthood. His position on abortion? Aside from threatening to nominate Supreme Court Justices who share ...
The new Supreme Court under Mitt Romney will take away a woman's right to choose, reinstate ban on *** in military, consider overturning Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965, and give religion a greater say in public policy. They will open Citizens United even wider, and will reinstate new states' rights rules, giving your local government even more power over you. And Romney will continue to outsource jobs and lower taxes on the very rich. That's what's in store if you elect him. Don't. Vote Obama.
Romney is a Mormon the republican position on marriage is one man and one woman. Yet the Republican Party puts Romney as their candidate a man who's family fled the U.S. in order to carry on there practice of polygamy. Not one member of the Romney family has ever served in the U.S. military yet Mitt Romney has not seen a war he does not support. I can't and will not put up with this man as POTUS. This is even worse the King George Bush winning the election over Al Gore in 2000 even though the majority of Americans voted for Al Gore. The Supreme Court needs to be elected by popular vote not appointed by a short term elected official.
if your a women and you plan on voting for romeny please read this and reconsider No matter how much he tries to talk around the issue and run from his record, there’s no avoiding the fact that Mitt Romney opposes access to safe and legal abortion. When asked if he believes the Supreme Court should overturn Roe V. Wade, his answer was simple: “Yes, I do.” When asked if the repeal of Roe would be a good day for America, he responded “Absolutely.” He announced his support for the Blunt amendment, a bill that was introduced to restrict access to birth control by allowing any employer the right to deny health insurance coverage for any benefit based on a “moral” conviction. Governor Romney is on the wrong side of the public on this issue: 67 percent of American voters opposed this measure. He has aggressively supported this stance, even launching a petition against the Health and Human Services ruling to include birth control as basic preventive care. If elected, Romney has pledged to repeal the ...
Bill Clinton was suspended from practicing law in Arkansas and paid a $250,000 fine as a result of the Monica Lewinski Sex Scandal. He also paid a $850,000 settlement over the Paula Jones Rape. He was also disbarred from practicing law by the Supreme Court. So Bill Clinton, a disbarred lawyer, a President who turned the Oval Office into an Oral Office, who was impeached for lying under oath, and whose wife was disbarred from practicing law for FRAUD, is asking the American People to believe him when he says the best thing for the country is four more years of Comrade Obama, who was also disbarred for FRAUD, and who is married to a lawyer also disbarred for FRAUD? I just wanted to make sure I had that right before I go vote for Mitt Romney, an honest man. and great Governor, married to a beautiful, classy, honest "house wife," and mother of 5 successful sons. Ann Romney is a cancer survivor with Multiple Sclerosis who works tirelessly for many charities. Mr. Romney pays over 58% in income taxes plus charit ...
I admit I don't know all that much about the Electoral College, but what if Mitt Romney wins the popular vote and Barack Obama wins the Electoral College vote. Is it possible for the GOP to convince Electoral College electors that it's their patriotic duty to vote with the popular vote? (And remember, it was the GOP that made Democratic U.S. Senator Max Cleland in Georgia, who left three limbs in Vietnam, sound unpatriotic, costing him re-election.) Could the GOP be able to cause enough chaos in the election that it could get it thrown into the Republican House or the Republican U.S. Supreme Court? (By the way, I do believe President Obama will win both the popular vote and the Electoral College vote.)
Just saw an ad in Salt Lake City where Mitt Romney endorses Orin Hatch - no surprise but in the ad Mitt says that the Affordable Care Act (aka "Obamacare") is unconstitutional. I guess he doesn't believe in the Supreme Court.
To those of you who say that Bain Capital and Mitt Romney have no current relationship, do note that Bain Capital has given Romney $277,970. Bain Capital/Thomas Lee Partners earned $62 billion in 2011 via their holding Clear Channel, which is the largest radio station owner in America. Rush Limbaugh and the Sean Hannity Show is produced under the direction of Clear Channel. Imagine how much money they provide? You can only guess because they do not have to tell you anything...thanks to the conservative judges of the Supreme Court. These "PEOPLE", as per another ruling are free to provide as much money as they wish and do not have to report it. Another business, American Outdoor Advertising, put up huge billboards which announce the voting date this November is on the 8th. The sign is printed in SPANISH and was put up by the Republican Secretary of State of Ohio! Oops! Darn, an honest mistake!?
A Florida politician, Rick Kriseman, a Representative in the House of Representatives of the U.S. State of Florida, tells this story: I was talking with a good friend of mine, yesterday, who is supporting Mitt Romney. I said: “Let me ask you a question, did you think the Supreme Court's decision in Citizens United was a good decision?” He said: “No.” “I said, I know I won't change your mind, but, have you considered the long term impact of Mitt Romney choosing, possibly, the next four Supreme Court Justices, since four are in their 70's?” He said: “No, I hadn't thought of that.” I then asked: “Do you know who heads Romney's judicial advisory committee?” He again said: “No.” I answered: – “Robert Bork.” People, this is really important. Without an independent judiciary, our democracy will not survive. Do we REALLY want Robert Bork to be the one making judicial recommendations to our President? I sincerely hope not. I have been screaming from the rooftops, not only this electio ...
I agree that our faith in Jesus should not be changed. However, the Jesus that Mitt Romney believes in is not Jesus of the Bible. (Gal 1:6-9; II Cor 11:1-4, 13-15) I am not saying that Obama is a Christian nor that anyone should vote for him. I have voted for Republican Presidential Candidates since Pres Nixon because I believed they more closely represented Christian Values. However, Roe V. Wade could have been overturned by now if the elected “pro-life” Presidents would have chosen “pro-life” Supreme Court Justices. Remember, Al Gore was “pro-life” when he was Senator from Tenn. but quickly changed to “pro-abortion” when he wanted to be Vice President. To tell you the truth, I don’t believe any of the Politicians today have any real core Christian Values (except when they want to get elected.) Anyway, regardless of how you vote, you need to realize Mormonism is a Cult. I have some of their books and a Commentary of the Bible by Joseph Smith. Here, are a few of the things Mitt Romne ...
Why I like Mitt Romney: 1) Absolutely no skeletons in his closet. He has a verifiable paper trail and a lifetime of people who can vouch for all the activities in his life. 2) Amazing business sense. Romney knows how to take a financial disaster and create a profitable entity - he's proven it time and again - whether with Bain Corp, Bain Capital, or the SLC Olympic Committee. He has a gift for building wealth that few can match. 3) He is dedicated to his faith and puts God at the head of everything he does. We won't turn this into a debate over who thinks the Mormon faith is legit or not. All I know is that he loves God and believes Jesus died for his sins. In the grand scheme of things, especially for politics, that's good enough for me. 4) He supports women's rights. Although he is pro-life, the fact remains that Roe v Wade requires the Supreme Court to intervene in order to it be over turned. There's nothing Mitt Romney can do about it. He does support abortion rights in the event of rape, incest, or l ...
So here's my prediction: Mitt Romney will win the POPULAR vote Nov 6th, but Obama will hold onto Ohio (mainly because of the auto bailout) and deprive Romney of the necessary 271 Electoral College votes. But it gets better: Ohio being Ohio, some delegates will bolt on Dec 6th when they meet to vote. They may swing the electoral vote count to Romney or result in a tie, which would send the election to the US House. The Democrats will sue..but unlike 2000 when the Supreme Court gave the election to Bush, John Roberts will side with the liberals because he wants to be the 21st century Oliver Wendell Holmes. You heard it here first.
Laptop insurance - because accidents happen!
Don’t think for a second that Republicans have backed off from their War on Women. Just this week, Governor Kasich announced that he’s appointing the Chair of Ohio Right to Life – an extreme anti-choice, anti-woman group – to one of just seven seats on the committee to appoint a new Ohio Supreme Court Justice. This shows, more than ever, that Governor Kasich, and his friends Mitt Romney and Josh Mandel, will do whatever it takes to sneak through their extreme agenda: limiting women’s Health Care options, defunding Planned Parenthood, and taking away a woman’s right to determine what she does with her body. But you and I know that women are paying attention. Let’s show them: will you contribute $12 to help us fight back? Governor Kasich’s trying to sneak the fact he’s putting an anti-woman advocate in control of the future of the state Supreme Court past Ohioans right before Election Day. But with your help, we won’t let him. We’re just 19 days away from Election Day, and we need to s ...
As far as I know 100% of Americans hate abortion and think it is a sin or downright odious. However, the Supreme Court made a ruling that each woman has the right to decide for herself if she wants to have a baby or not, terminate her pregnancy or carry the fetus/baby through to the end of her term, usually about 9 months, give or take a few weeks. Why in the world would people like Ryan want to enforce a no-abortion rule (like a no-fly zone) in cases of rape, incest, underage child, or danger to the health of the mother? Why would anyone vote for such a person for vice-president, or for Mitt Romney for president when he picked Paul Ryan for his running mate? Now you have every right to your own opinion and your religious beliefs, but do you have the right to force your opinion and your beliefs on everyone else, including half the population of the United States (more than half, actually)? Would you force your own child to have a baby if she were raped? What if she were 11 or 12 years old? What if hav ...
As usual, I'm posting my not-so-secret ballot, with a brief explanation of each decision. U.S. President and Vice-President: Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. This is the easiest decision of all. Romney has proven to be an excellent businessman capable of turning around troubled companies, many of which were in even worse shape than the U.S. economy is right now. Obama, by contrast, has proven to be an unmitigated disaster. He campaigned against President Bush's obscene deficits, only to double them under an ill-conceived "stimulus" bill that stimulated nothing. He abandoned the good guys first in Iran, then across the Middle East, including our own embassies, and lied for weeks to cover it up. If that wasn't bad enough, he has preserved the fragile 5-4 balance on the Supreme Court that came within one vote of gutting the First Amendment in Citizens United and American Tradition Partnership, and of abolishing the Second Amendment outright by judicial fiat in Heller and McDonald. Romney is a strong candid ...
Last week, I watched as Mitt Romney stood on a stage and LIED in front of millions of Americans during one of the most watched presidential debates in history. I hate feeling so negative, and using the "L" word. But it's time. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have LIED about everything from the impact of their Medicare plan on seniors to the number of unemployed. Romney's much harped upon “flip-flops” have grown into FULL-BLOWN LIES. His policy positions change “day to day”and “hour to hour” depending on who he's talking to. If he becomes president, which of these positions will he take when it comes time to sign a bill into law or appointing a Supreme Court Justice? Huffington Post/mora.
Churchleader.com Richard Lee.. Lead Better Every Day Barack Obama or Mitt Romney? How All Christians Should Vote The truth of the matter is many Christians today don’t know how their faith affects their vote. Vote With(out) Hope This election, however, is about hope. The rhetoric among the parties is about who will raise America out of the recession, who will create new jobs, who will change the trajectory of our nation in the world at large. But, as Christians, we need to realize we need to Vote Without Hope. Don’t place your hope in any one person. Ultimately, whoever wins will not deliver on every promise. Neither candidate will be able to accomplish everything they intend. And in four years, we will probably be using the rhetoric of hope once again to nominate new presidential candidates. However, we can Vote WITH Hope. That is because we believe in a God who is sovereign over the president and Congress and supreme over the Supreme Court. Proverbs 21:1 reminds that “the king’s heart is in the ...
Each debate in advance of the 2012 Presidential Election has come with a breakout moment rife for mocking on the Internet. The first presidential debate had Mitt Romney's Big Bird comment, the Vice Presidential debate had Joe Biden's "malarkey," and the second presidential debate has given the world Romney's "binders full of women." President Obama relied on his record. “The first bill I signed was something called the Lily Ledbetter bill. And it’s named after this amazing woman who had been doing the same job as a man for years, found out that she was getting paid less, and the Supreme Court said that she couldn’t bring suit because she should have found about it earlier, whereas she had no way of finding out about it. So we fixed that.” Romney hinted that women need time to cook dinner, mentioning that his own Chief of Staff, “But number two, because I recognized that if you’re going to have women in the workforce that sometimes you need to be more flexible. My chief of staff, for instance, ...
Obama campaign asks Supreme Court to allow early voting in Ohio POSTED: FRIDAY, 12 OCTOBER 2012 09:16PM By Terry Baynes (Reuters) - President Barack Obama's re-election campaign on Friday urged the Supreme Court to uphold lower court decisions allowing in-person early voting in the battleground state of Ohio in the three days before the November 6 general election. Ohio, critical to both Democrat Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney, began early in-person voting last Tuesday but planned to cut it off on November 2, the Friday before the November 6 election, except for members of the military. The Obama campaign, the Democratic National Committee and the Ohio Democratic Party had sued Ohio officials to restore early voting right up to Election Day eve. Republicans opposed their efforts, saying a cutoff was needed to reduce voter fraud. Last week, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a U.S. District Court order that reinstated early voting in the final days before the election. Ohio's top ele ...
Why belabor the points Paul Ryan requested stimulus money(did not qualify) Paul Ryan went to college on SSI. Paul Ryan"s mother lived on a federal dole while he was growing up. The GOP refused to add the requested security funds for the consulate in Benghazi There is no proof that there are WMD"s in Iran Ryan" has never had bi-partisan backing on any budget proposals, and no member of the Clinton administration signed on Mitt Romney was CEO of Bain Caoital when he headed up the Salt Lake City Olympics Bain Capital has exported thousands of jobs and closed a myriad of plants while he headed Bain Capital and the majority of the profits are deposited offshore in Swiss and West Indies accounts. Both Romney and Ryan are unmitigated liars who skirt the truth. Clarence Thomas must sequester himself from any Supreme Court hearings on Affirmative Action, because he went to college through Affirmative Action/ The Romney Ryan plan to put Social Security in private investment was rejected when Bush proposed it Ryan h ...
Romney's Hormone Chaos -- Eric Francis, Planet Waves Tuesday, Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney told The Des Moines Register's Editorial Board that "there's no legislation with regards to abortion that I'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda." In other words, he told an outrageous lie that he was not planning to sign any anti-abortion legislation (something that he's promised to do, and never to do, on many different occasions). During his 1994 race for U.S. senator from Massachusetts, Romney said he was pro-choice. Today he claims to want to overturn Roe V. Wade (which only the Supreme Court can do) and also to ban women from having access to birth control. Two hours later, the Romney campaign was walking back his earlier statement. "Gov. Romney would of course support legislation aimed at providing greater protections for life." This is the stock in trade of his campaign: say whatever is convenient in that moment, then it's broadcast, and then that position is reversed later that ...
"Corporations are just people, my friend." -- Mitt Romney, 2011. Sorry Mitt, you are wrong. Corporations are NOT human--they are legal constructs designed to limit liability for wrong-doing. That is why they are called Ltd. in Britain. Corporations have no First Amendment rights as individual citizens do. The U.S. Supreme Court in January 2010 got it dead wrong. The only way to fix this wrong is to pass a constitutional amendment spelling out the rights of corporations versus the rights of individual citizens. I like Sen. Bernie Sanders language. Read it here:
Do Leopards have the ability to change their spots? The answer is: They never have and never will! So - why is it a surprise to have Mitt Romney backtrack on Abortion? Note the following article on CNS.com - MOUNT VERNON, Ohio (AP) — A day after Mitt Romney downplayed his plans to fight abortion, social conservatives on Wednesday offered the Republican presidential nominee a not-so-subtle reminder of his pledge to do "everything in my power to cultivate, promote, and support a culture of life in America." The head of the anti-abortion group Susan B. Anthony List distributed an article Romney penned last summer vowing to prohibit federal funding for Planned Parenthood, while backing legislation that would "protect unborn children who are capable of feeling pain from abortion." In the June 2011 article, Romney also expressed support for the reversal of Roe V. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion. "We have full confidence that as president, Gov. Romney will stand by the pro-life ...

Mitt Romney gave us ample warning of what he would do to the Supreme Court's balance when he chose Robert Bork as the head of his judicial advisory team.
Oh Great, More Taxes S.E.Cupp: New York Daily News columnist and MSNBC Host “The Supreme Court just gave its imprimatur to a bill that only 26% of Americans wanted upheld, according to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll. In addition to the 42% who wanted the entire law tossed out, a whopping 67% opposed the signature piece of President Obama's Affordable Care Act, the Individual Mandate. This is all perfectly within the court's purview, of course, and if anything, it's clear that the Supreme Court is not as easily influenced by politics or popular opinion as Democrats preemptively insisted it would be. But it's certainly a surprising verdict. As for spin, it's inarguably great news for the president and his reelection campaign and bad news for Republicans and Mitt Romney, who will try to argue that this decision will only fire up the conservative base. It will, in the short term, but when Romney pivots off Health Care (which will happen sooner than later) it's hard to say whether this ruling alone w ...
My partner, Dean Spenser, and I are going to try and reach as many voters our Picture Rocks community as we can. I recently found out that four Supreme Court judges that are very likely to retire within the next four years. If Obama replaces them, we will have six very young judges on the far left, for about the next 30-40 years or so. Prevent this by electing our, DC team, Mitt Romney, Jeff Flake, and Gabriella Saucedo Mercer. What about Justice Eric Holder? That would be a nightmare. Joyce Smith, Republican Precinct Committeeman, Precinct 222 and I have adopted 219 and 215, as they do not have one and I contacted many by phone for Ruth McClung.
Keith Olberman: SCARY SHARIA SCALIA LAW — Sometimes overlooked in this election is the MAIN reason NOT to elect Mitt Romney as president. People like Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, Scott Brown, etc. would appoint and approve new Supreme Court Justices like Antonin Scalia. His record on interpreting the Constitution as a "textualist" has dark ramifications for the very fabric of American society. Recently he reiterated this, as if there were any doubt. "Abortion? Absolutely easy. Nobody ever thought the Constitution prevented restrictions on abortion. Homosexual sodomy? Come on. For 200 years, it was criminal in every state," Scalia declared at the American Enterprise Institute," a leading Republican stink tank. Once again, Scalia discussed publicly cases before the supreme bench, confirming his haughty attitude and poor judgment. This belligerent bulldog would love to order his Religious Police into your bedroom, as he leads the American Taliban in whacking every short skirt and bashing all *** looking" peopl ...
You know who Scott Brown admires? Scalia for the Supreme Court and Mitt Romney in the White House. 'nuf said.
We need to make sure Romney doesn't get in. Just one more reason. Mitt Romney has a very different vision for the Supreme Court. Campaigning in Puerto Rico earlier this year, Romney bashed Sotomayor -- who also happens to be the first Hispanic Supreme Court Justice and the Court's third woman ever. Instead, he says he'd pick more justices like Thomas, Alito and Antonin Scalia, the core of the right-wing bloc whose decisions are systematically rolling back Americans' hard-won rights. He used to say that he'd pick more Justices like Chief Justice Roberts, but changed his mind when Roberts ruled in favor of the Health Care Reform plan similar to the one that Romney himself had helped pilot in Massachusetts. So who would Romney pick for the Supreme Court? We've gotten a hint from his choice of former judge Robert Bork as his campaign's judicial advisor. Bork's brand of judicial extremism was so out of step with the mainstream that a bipartisan majority of the Senate rejected his nomination to the Supreme Cou ...
So lately a ton of right-wingers and neoconservatives have started arguing that liberals and lefties shouldn't vote for Obama. Because drone attacks, right? But! Even though they're eagerly anticipating more drone attacks if Romney wins, they're *very* sure that *you* shouldn't vote for Obama. Because... Um... they're jerks. Anyway, in the process of outing Connor Friedersdorf, the latest neocon drones-for-me-but-not-for-thee concern troll, Mother Jones blogger Kevin Drum asks a pretty crucial question "if you're an actual lefty agonizing over whether you can possibly support the lesser of two evils this year, I have nine words for you: How did that work out for you in 2000?" So. Who are you going to make happy here with your vote? Or boycott thereof? Me? Or Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, the entire former staff of the G.W. Bush White House, five of the nine justices of the Supreme Court, every single one of Rupert Murdoch's employees, the entire Tea Party...? Sigh.
Tomorrow, September 28, marks 40 days until American either re-elects President Obama or newly elects Mitt Romney as President. It is imperative that we pray faithfully for the 2012 elections, yet our hope and trust is not in the results of elections! The reality is that the spiritual and moral issues facing this nation will not be resolved in the White House, Congress, or the Supreme Court. What the United States desperately needs is another Great Awakening! The Church must experience a revival that awakens her to the life-changing power of Jesus Christ in her midst. Such a spiritual awakening within the people of God has the power to bring about true cultural transformation in this nation. So why pray for the elections? There are a number of compelling reasons: The Bible commands us to pray for those who are in leadership. This includes those who are vying to become leaders. Godly leaders can help slow the erosion of religious liberties in our land. This can provide an increased window of opportunity fo ...
As a US citizen, the right to vote and choose our president is one of the most precious rights that we have. As Christians, it is our duty to exercise that right and choose the leader that aligns with our values. One of these values is our deep respect and belief in the sanctity of every human life. In this coming election, there is a very clear choice - Barack Obama who supports abortion and Mitt Romney who opposes it. I did a little research on the subject of abortion. Here are chilling statistics from US Abortion Clock.org: 1. In the United States today as of 3:07 p.m. there were already 2,157 abortion procedures performed; 2. In US this year as of the same time, there were 920,295 procedures done; 3. In US since 1973, after Roe Vs. Wade Supreme Court decision was made, 55,479,910 babies have been aborted; 4. By Planned Parenthood since 1970 - 6,238,458 babis aborted; 5. By Planned Parenthood this year today, same time - 250,071 or 27% of US total. Planned Parenthood is the largest provider of abortion ...
Previously posted on another thread...tired of answering the question so here it is. I like and voted for Obama because unlike the previous President, he THINKS before he acts. I like how he helped regulate the tobacco industry. I like how he's appointed two women to the Supreme Court including the first minority female. I like how he gave the order to our wonderful Special Forces to shoot Bin Laden in the face. I like how he has helped created over 3 million private sector jobs while cutting wasteful govt jobs. I like how he's reversed the trend from 2008 where Bush was losing 750,000 jobs a month to positive growth 18 months in a row. I like how countries respect us again and want to work with us, instead of rooting for us to fail like during the Bush years. I like how he seems to understand what the middle class is going through. More so that Mitt Romney. I like the fact that even though uneducated, misinformed people have questioned every little thing about the man, from place of birth to religion to ...
Closing arguments in the case — which went to trial in August and included several state officials as witnesses — were scheduled for Monday. South Carolina has said it would implement the law immediately if the three-judge panel upholds it, although a decision either way is likely to be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court. Tougher state voter registration and identification laws could factor into this year’s election as voters divide along racial lines behind President Barack Obama or GOP nominee Mitt Romney in the presidential contest. About 90 percent of African-Americans and some 64 percent of Hispanic registered voters support Obama, according to the most recent Gallup three-week tracking poll. (Aug 20-Sept. 9). Democrats worry the ID laws may rob Obama and Democratic candidates of votes. The law allows voters to show a driver’s license or other photo ID issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles, passport, military ID with photo or a voter registration card that includes a photo. The law’s r ...
Who will be there to enforce the rule of law, a Supreme Court ruling or the Constitution? No one. Barack Obama and his fellow-travelers will be unchallenged as they run roughshod over the American People. Many Republicans and conservatives dissatisfied with the prospect of Mitt Romney as the nominee for president are instead focused on re-taking the House and Senate. That goal, while worthy and necessary, is meaningless unless Barack Obama is defeated . The nation is not dealing with a person of character and integrity but someone of single-minded purpose and overwhelming narcissism. Judging by his actions, words and deeds during his first term, he does not intend to work with Congress, either Republican or Democrat in his second term but rather to force his radical agenda on the American People through the power he has usurped or been granted. The governmental structure of the United States was set up by the founders in the hope that over the years only those people of high moral character and integrity ...
It amazes me that people are shocked by the secret Mitt Romney video. Really? We know that’s how a small number of Americans think. They think they are better than us and that they deserve everything. They think this country belongs to them and that we are their servants. This reminds me a little bit of F. Scott Fitzgerald's “The Great Gatsby,” although I have to say Mitt is no Gatsby. He’s as arrogant and snobbish as the rest of the folks in that video he’s trying convince to like him. The only thing is that I’m sure they don’t consider him one of them because of his religion and the fact that he keeps changing positions on issues on a daily basis. They are desperate though and they will do anything to continue rigging everything in their favor so Mitt will do. They have one big problem and that is that they are few in numbers. That’s why they made possible for the Supreme Court to pass Citizens United. This was something that the Koch brothers and company knew they needed to do in order ...
Ruth Bader Ginsburg is 79 years old, Anton Scalia is 76 years old, Anthony Kennedy is 76 years old, Stephen Breyer is 74 years and Clarence Thomas is 64 years old. The Person who sits in the White House for the next 4 years may have 4 picks for the Supreme Court, with the radical right controlling Mitt Romney, his election would mean much of the progress made in civil rights during the Warren Court could be eroded, Roe and even Griswold will be challenged, Gun Control could be non existent. "Stand your ground" laws will be upheld. Cruzen could be challenged. Big Business Interests will be favored over environmental safety. The influence of Grover Norquist, Rush Limbaugh etc...will last long beyond their demise.
760post a comment There is no more time for games, no room for hurt feelings. Ron Paul fans, you need to choose, because not voting for Romney is a vote for Obama. It’s that simple. And you could make the difference. Maybe Romney isn’t the uncompromising Ayn Rand hero you’d design if you could build your ideal candidate from scratch, but he’s a lot better than the guy on whose watch this happened: Making no choice in this election is a choice – it’s a choice for a collectivist who will get two or three Supreme Court picks over a man who picked a guy, Paul Ryan, who understands capitalism and its unbreakable link to human freedom. Now, this is a two-way street. Romney and Ryan need to reach out to libertarians over their common ground. Fortunately, there is lots of common ground. No, the Republican Party is not a libertarian party, but it is the only party with any libertarian element. It’s the only place you have any chance of being heard. And with guys like Rand Paul and the libertarian-fri ...
"Mitt Romney's support is up in Arizona following the U.S. Supreme Court decision overturning several provisions of the state's law cracking down on illegal immigration and the OBAMA administration's announcement that it WILL NOT PROCESS ADDITIONAL ILLEGALS ARRESTED there." ©2012 Rasmussen Reports, LLC This is just not right... Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced that the administration would cut off ties to Arizona's police and end provisions of seven 287(g) task force agreements that gave some Arizona police agencies powers to enforce Immigration Laws. The vindictive, disproportionate response effectively isolates the state in terms of being far more stringent than anything the administration has inflicted on Burma, North Korea or Iran. Federal authorities will no longer take phone calls from Arizona officers making immigration inquiries about suspected illegals picked up in the course of committing crimes, perhaps some quite spectacular ones. Instead, the Immigration and Customs Enf ...
It's time for Gov. Chris Christie (Republican Convention Key-Note-Speaker for Mitt Romney) to investigate his own state; the political corruption dealing with New Jersey's Supreme Court, the Office of Attorney Ethics, Robert Correale, Esq and his former law firm, Maynard & Truland, and all politicians who have protected them.
When I heard that Elizabeth Warren made the statement that Mitt Romney said corporations are people she said no they are not. She graduated from Harvard law and she is not aware of the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that according to the 14 amendment that a corporation is indeed a person they have the same rights as a person so Mitt Romney is right and Elisabeth Warren is Wrong my party need much more intelligent speakers and people that actually can show that they have some historical facts The Great President John Fitzgerald Kennedy would be disappointed. The democrats look to President Clinton he governed moderately his words were not his actions

Mitt Romney admitted, decisively, this morning that if he becomes president he will work hard to overturn Roe V. Wade. He said he will appoint Supreme Court Justices who share his viewpoint, so they can make abortion illegal for any reason. NO ROMNEY IF YOU VALUE YOUR FREEDOMS, THIS MAN ADMITTED HE WILL TAKE THEM AWAY!
...This Republican Party that we have now is not our fathers' Republican Party. It is neither conservative nor interested in dealing with our problems. This is a party which has become unlike anything we've ever seen at center stage of American politics. We have to recognize that we're dealing with something which is different from what we're used to, which is showing a dark and sick and broken spirit that has taken over a once great party. You can see this sick and broken spirit in various patterns...a spirit which never has enough of either wealth or power, even though we have the greatest income inequality that we've had in living memory, this force is working to widen that gap still further with the Ryan budget...with Mitt Romney's tax proposals; all of them take from average Americans to give to those who already have the most. ...This force has given us a Supreme Court that's handed down that disgraceful decision in Citizens United, putting our government up for auction. All men are created equal is ...
In a week with more political rhetoric than usual, Sen. Bernie Sanders offered facts to counter the fiction in Republican assaults on Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. At the Republican National Convention, wealt hy donors hobnobbed Wednesday on a yacht flying a flag of the Cayman Islands, the tax haven where Mitt Romney and other wealthy individuals shelter their fortunes to avoid paying U.S. taxes. President Obama weighed in on Wednesday for a constitutional amendment to undo Citizens United. In the Senate, Sanders is the sponsor of an amendment to reverse the Supreme Court decision that let business and billionaires bankroll (mostly Republican) campaigns. Meanwhile, several states (with Republican governors) have put new laws on the books to discourage voting by young and old and poor people. A Federal Court on Thursday struck down one such an anti-democratic law in Texas. A Government Accountability Office investigation, which was requested by Sanders, is looking at similar laws in other states. ...
Charles -- Judging from the number of times they've said it this week, you would think repealing Obamacare on Day One is the most urgent goal of the Republican Party and number one reason to elect Mitt Romney. I'd like to know what's noble about making it harder for people to get Health Care. President Obama refused to give up on this legislation because he knew it was about real people -- people like his own mother who, in her final days, battled cancer and mounting bills, or my daughter Lauren, whose intractable epilepsy, at just seven months old, nearly bankrupted our family and burdened her with a pre-existing condition that threatened her future coverage. Today, there are millions of families like ours who won't have to suffer through needless heartache over situations beyond their control. If the President loses, Republicans are guaranteeing those protections will be gone with him. When the Supreme Court affirmed the Affordable Care Act, I was moved to tears. This week, the Republicans are moving a ...
.Patton: And It's Romney-Ryan in a Landslide By Doug Patton August 30, 2012 6:55 am Text Size: A A A This week, I'm going out on a limb by publicly stating an opinion I have been expressing privately for some time: I believe Mitt Romney will defeat Barack Obama in a near landslide comparable to Ronald Reagan's win over Jimmy Carter in 1980. Many of my friends and family, while hoping I'm right, actually think I'm crazy. My wife fears that there is now a disproportionate number of people in America who have gotten used to the idea of having things handed to them by government, rather than cherishing the opportunity to work for those things themselves. After the Supreme Court ruling on Obamacare this summer, my brother, who lives in the battleground state of Missouri, announced with resignation that, "Obama has just been re-elected." He reaffirmed that belief recently, during the Todd Akin flap in Missouri's U.S. Senate race, by once again declaring his state all but lost for Republicans, including Mitt Rom ...
What Has Obama Done? Passed Health Care Reform; Ended the War in Iraq; Eliminated Osama Bin Laden; Passed the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act; Passed Wall Street Reform; Kicked Banks Out of Federal Student Loan Program, Expanded Pell Grant Spending; Turned Around American Auto Industry; Repealed "Don't Ask, Don't Tell; Increased Support for Veterans; Passed Credit Card Reforms; Eliminated Catch-22 in Pay Equality Laws; Protected Two Pro-Worker Seats on the US Supreme Court; Improved Food Safety System; Expanded National Service; Cracked Down on Bad For-Profit Colleges; Improved School Nutrition; and Expanded Health Coverage for Children. He's also working to Protect Retirement Security; Champion Workers' Rights; Support Collective Bargaining; Focuses on Working Families; and Reform Nation's Immigration Policy. What did Bush do? I'm afraid to think what Mitt Romney will do. Not suggesting who to vote for, but know what your candidate stands for and if it's in your best interest. Don't vote for s ...
Gotta throw this one out their to (CBS News) In an interview with CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley, Mitt Romney said his views on abortion rights are more lenient than those put forward in the Republican Party platform. "My position has been clear throughout this campaign," Romney said. "I'm in favor of abortion being legal in the case of rape and incest, and the health and life of the mother." "Recognize this is the decision that will be made by the Supreme Court," he said. "The Democrats try and make this a political issue every four years, but this is a matter in the courts. It's been settled for some time in the courts." Meaning abortion an issue.
Andrew Jackson passed Legislation to move the Indian Nations from the Southeast to Oklahoma territory. John Marshal Chief Justice of the Supreme Court declared that Act unconstitutional. Jackson told Marshal that you execute the law because I will not and they are going to Okieville. Polk succeeded Jackson and Polk moved the Indians on the "Trail of Tears" to Oklahoma. This is Romney's Model. Polk the Destroyer of the Indian Nation and a grabber of Mexican territory. Mitt Romney’s Presidential Role Model Is ... James K. Polk By Dan Amira James. K. Romney. When Republicans mention former presidents they admire, they usually pick guys like Ronald Reagan, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, and maybe even Calvin Coolidge. But apparently, Mitt Romney wants to model himself after James K. Polk. Wait, you're saying to yourself. Mitt Romney wants to own slaves, fight a war with Mexico, and only serve one term in office? That seems ... not great. No! Well, not the slaves or the Mexico part. But the one-term thi ...
Dear lucy, 74 -- That's how many days we have until Election Day 2012, and People For the American Way is firing on all cylinders to make sure that we make the most of every single one. We’re going to make sure that when the polls close on November 6th, we’ll have taken advantage of every single opportunity to ensure that progressive values win—and that right-wing candidates lose big. That means communicating with key voters in swing states about the issues that will make a difference on Election Day: the GOP’s war on women and Latinos, the dangerous extremism of the Romney-Ryan agenda, and the devastating impact of a radical-right Supreme Court. PFAW will be at the RNC: Next week, the Republican Party will converge in Tampa, Florida to officially hand Mitt Romney the nomination. But you won’t hear much about the real Romney-Ryan agenda from the podium in the convention hall. Instead, while the television cameras are running, the GOP will be serving up message-tested bromides mixed with a health ...
The differences between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are vast. No candidate is perfect, and all their flaws will be exposed, but are you perfect? am I? No. It's all about money? Fine. Let's choose the candidates that might change that dynamic. Let's pick the candidate who won't put a right-wing ideologue on the Supreme Court. If you're on the fence, if you're a woman, if you care about how much dirty money is in the campaign system, Just Imagine where we'd be right now and in the future if John Mccain had chosen our two newest High Court members and shudder at the thought.

Hi, My name is Mitt Romney. I make my money in private equity - buying up struggling companies and selling them for parts - and spend my spare time avoiding taxes in my private life and putting up financial smoke screens while running for office. I think I'd make a good President because you don't like the current President and I'm the other choice. I'm being supported by a handful of billionaires who monetarily influence legislation so they can live the Romney dream of breaking up companies and not paying any taxes. Sheldon Adelson who bribed all those Chinese officials to make casinos? He's my guy. The Koch brothers who paid enough money to push Citizens United through the Supreme Court (the guys who run the Tea Party movement)? They're my guys too. Which is to say I'm their guy, bought an paid for. I appointed Paul Ryan as my Vice Presidential candidate, further alienating Latino and women voters, and since old people like getting the money they were promised, I might have just lost Florida too (unless ...
Read the stats from our own US Congressional Budget Office. Since 1970 80% of all new income went to the top wealthiest 1% of Americans, while the middle class lost 40% of their assets. American Corporations are making RECORD profits and refuse to infest the profits back into our country. 50% of all corporations pay zero taxes, but Mitt Romney agrees with the Supreme Court that they are people. The wealthy like Romney pay only 14% in taxes and that is on what they don't have hidden in offshore accounts. The average Joe is paying 30% on their income. The Ryan Budget will allow the Super Wealthy to take that down to 1%. TRICKLE DOWN ECONOMICS= jobs, jobs, and more jobs! For 12 years the wealthy have had their greatest tax breaks since the 1920's. Where are the jobs and where is the economic growth we were promised? Didn't we Americans sacrifice enough? Where did the middle and poor classes go wrong? We gave them deregulation and open markets. NAFTA and the support for globalization. Lets see, what is it we ...
A look at where Democratic President Barack Obama and Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney stand on a selection of issues -- Associated Press: 1.ABORTION & BIRTH CONTROL OBAMA: Supports abortion rights. Health Care law requires contraceptives to be available for free for women enrolled in workplace health plans. ROMNEY: Opposes abortion rights. Previously supported them. Says state law should guide abortion rights, and Roe V. Wade should be reversed by a future Supreme Court ruling. Said he would end federal aid to Planned Parenthood. 2.WAR OBAMA: Ended the Iraq war, increased U.S. troop presence in Afghanistan then began drawing down the force with a plan to have all out by the end of 2014. Approved U.S. air power in NATO-led campaign that helped Libyan opposition topple government. Major cuts coming in the size of the Army and Marine Corps as part of agreement with congressional Republicans to cut $487 billion in military spending over a decade. ROMNEY: Endorses 2014 end to U.S. combat in Afghani ...
Did the media not notice that after Obama’s Supreme Court Health Care victory, several new reports emerged proving the cost of ObamaCare is far higher than advertised by Obama. Or that several companies have announced they will not build new plants because of the cost of Obamacare? I guarantee you that middle class Americans who work for a living noticed. Most remarkably, is it possible that the media did not notice that Obama created a new government department last week just for African American students? Are you kidding me? An Executive Order to benefit one race of students? Can you even imagine Mitt Romney announcing an Office of White Education? Or how about an Executive Order by Romney to create The Office of Mormon Education? Can you imagine the outcry from the liberal media? But the mainstream media said nothing about Obama’s new Executive Order. Zero. Zip. Nada. They ignored one of the most blatant acts by any president in modern American history. A game changer. I guarantee you middle class ...
New PAC aims to win WA for Romney-Ryan (from Steve Beren - August 11, 2012) A new Political Action Committee - Pivot Point Washington - has been established to support the Romney-Ryan ticket in the State of Washington, and to put our state in the GOP column in November. To donate, go to tell them Steve Beren sent you! Between now and September 9 (my 61st birthday), I urge you to donate $61, or $161, or $261 to Pivot Point Washington. Let's win our state for the Romney-Ryan ticket! The GOP ticket of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan is deserving of enthusiastic support, donations, volunteer activity, and tireless grassroots support. President Obama is not just an average statist progressive liberal Democrat. He is by far the worst president in my lifetime. We can't have him making the Supreme Court nominations through January 2017. We can't have him holding a veto pen when Congress repeals Obamacare on January 21, 2013. We need to defeat the Obama agenda: wasteful spending, soaring unemployment, $4/gallon gas, hi ...
Ryan for VP! Wow. all I can say is wow. So it is the oligarchy versus everyone else this election. The man who stands for the richest, Thurston Howell, er, Mitt Romney and the boy wonder who follows a MEAN atheists teachings (Ayn Rand) who wants to dismantle Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. Both want to raise taxes on the poor and the middle class and lower rates on the bizillionaires. If you thought there was money pouring into this election before, it will be nothing now that the far right has their boy in place. This election more than any since Vietnam will shape the future of this country. At stake is the dismantling of the New Deal and probably two Supreme Court seats. Does anyone really want more justices who feel RPGs should be legal since you can carry them. We might as well call this ticket "Somalia Dreams" for the anarchy they would inspire. It is so weird that the conservative party is really nothing more than the social anarchist party who firmly believe in Social Darwinism (aka the lu ...
Tracy -- Three years ago today, Justice Sonia Sotomayor made history, becoming the first Latina to be sworn into the Supreme Court. But that moment, while historic and important to millions of Latinos across the country, was only the beginning. In her time on the Supreme Court, Justice Sotomayor has cast many important votes -- including one striking down key provisions in Arizona's extreme anti-Immigration Law. She's voted against the secretive and anonymous unlimited funding of American elections, and most recently, she voted to uphold the Affordable Care Act in its entirety. Today's anniversary is another reminder that this election matters -- not just because we're choosing between moving forward with President Obama or backward with Mitt Romney, but also because we need more justices like Sonia Sotomayor, who understand the principles of equality and justice our nation was founded on.
Mitt Romney out-raises Barack Obama AGAIN last month. $100 million for Romney...$75 million for Obama. Looks like more people want him OUT.than IN! Why this doesn't make us feel better? Democrat billionaires like David Geffen and others...will be happy to make up the difference for Obama...if it means winning control of the U.S. Supreme Court.
what I thinking about it NOv. 13...Election Day..approx. 70 BUSINESS DAYS (not counting weekends and a few holidays) .you have to get your family and friends register to vote, if they need a PICTURE ID..WITH AN EXPIRATION DATE..like PA new law (being tested in the courts right now by ACLU, Legion of Women vjoters and Democratic Party and elderly citzens who have no driver license) make sure you help them with needed paperwork to get "Free ID" from driver's license center, especially if they need a birth certificated ($10) and other forms that might cost money..yea, this will go all the way to the Supreme Court I'm sure, its too much like the old South's poll tax and its the GOP/Tea Party way of prevent people from voting to give election to Mitt Romney..ie.. Supreme Court 5-4 gave election to George W. Bush..this is the only way they can win now is to prevent others from voting..poor (no transportation),the elderly (no drivers licenses) the black (lock into inter city areas where there is no easy way to ...
1929. 1987. 2008. Stock Market collapses. What's the commonality? ALL under REPUBLICAN administrations. Wake up America. Quit being suckers. (You also might want to check income growth, debt accumulation, job growth, and Stock Market returns - and vote rationally.) And for those who are pro-life (as I am), just remember this: 1. It was a REPUBLICAN Supreme Court that handed you Roe V. Wade in 1967 2. Ronald Reagan passed the most liberal abortion legislation in CA history (per Ron Reagan) 3. Twelve years of Reagan / Bush Sr produced 5 nominees to the court; 2 of those were pro-abortion 4. Mitt Romney was VERY pro-choice in 1994 and 2002 when he ran for office in a very liberal state. He didn't 'convert' to pro-life until he realized he'd never have a shot as the GOP presidential nominee unless he identified himself that way.
Mitt Romney's contributor: Goldman Sachs, President Obama's # 1 contributor: Google. Does anyone else wonder what life would have been like had Al Gore won the election way back when the Supreme Court ruled 5 to 4 for W? No Afghanistan or Iraq wars, no financial ruin, environment as an actual priority? Just saying.
Conservatives against Obama and his liberal adgenda. no longer bush's fault If you don't like Mitt Romney, consider this, Justice Scalia turned 79, Kennedy will turn 76, Breyer will be 74, and Ginsburg is 79. Whoever wins this election will get one possibly two lifetime appointments to the US Supreme Court. A write in vote or a third party vote and not only do we get Barack Hussein again, imagine a Justice Eric Holder. Ron
The real Second Amendment debate is not about guns, but is framed in the context of defending Essential Liberty as endowed by our Creator and enshrined in our Constitution's Bill of Rights. Justice Joseph Story, appointed to the Supreme Court by our Constitution's principal author, James Madison, wrote in his "Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States" (1833), "The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of the republic; since it offers a strong moral check against usurpation and arbitrary power of the rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them." By extension, that debate needs to come right back around to the question of whether Mitt Romney or Barack Hussein Obama will do a better job of defending Liberty against tyranny.
Today's news from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.): Where is Obama on Social Security?: Sen. Sanders asked why President Obama has not spoken out in defense of Social Security. "We know where Republicans stand on Social Security, we know where Mitt Romney stands on Social Security, but it's time we know what the president has to say about Social Security." Sanders said on the floor of the Senate Tuesday, The Hill and Common Dreams.org reported. Citizens United: Sens. Sanders and Patrick Leahy both testified Tuesday before a Senate panel considering ways to undo a Supreme Court ruling that lifted a ban on corporate campaign spending, WPTZ-TV and Vermont Public Radio reported. Sanders reiterated his call for a constitutional amendment. Leahy said corporate spending in elections could overwhelm a small state like Vermont. Bernie vs. Billionaires: Sen.

Life Terms for Teen Killers: Neither Cruel Nor Unusual IN A COLORADO TOWN in 1996, Verle Mangum bludgeoned Janet and Jennifer Davis to death. Janet, a 42-year-old nurse's aide, had come home from work and discovered Mangum, then 17, having sex with her 11-year-old daughter, Jennifer. When Janet reached for the phone to call the police, Mangum picked up a baseball bat and fatally bashed her with it. He then used the bat to murder Jennifer as she cowered in the bedroom. A jury eventually convicted Mangum of both murders. Under Colorado law he was given a mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole. In 2007, when the convictions were upheld on appeal, the prosecutor expressed relief. "This was one of the most heinous crimes in the history of our community," District Attorney Pete Hautzinger told the Grand Junction (Col.) Free Press. "It is very gratifying to know for sure that he will be staying in prison for the rest of his life." But that's no longer a sure thing -- not after the Supreme Court's 5- ...
On the Supreme Court ruling: "Despite all the partisan passion, this should have been an easy case said Jeffrey Toobin in The New Yorker. Conservatives actually came up with the idea of the health-care mandate in the 1990's to avoid "free riders" on the system, and Gov. Mitt Romney successfully pioneered the mandate in Massachusetts. For two decades, no Republican suggested there was a constitutional problem with the idea because there wasn't one. Since 1937, the Supreme Court has repeatedly recognized that the commerce clause gives Congress a free hand to address national economic problems. It was only the Right's loathing of Obama that landed the case in the Supreme Court. In diffusing a bitter political confrontation, said Paul Jacobson in AmericanThinker.com, Roberts actually rendered a very conservative opinion. He clearly had no love for the bill himself, but as as he put it in his opinion, it is not the Supreme Court's job to "protect the people from the consequences of their political decisions." ...

Dr. Norman Geisler, PhD, is a prolific author, veteran professor, speaker, lecturer, traveler, philosopher, apologist, evangelist, and theologian. To those who ask, "Who is Norm Geisler?" some have suggested, "Well, imagine a cross between Thomas Aquinas and Billy Graham and you're not too far off." According to the US Constitution (Article VI), "No religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States." So, given the way the Supreme Court has interpreted the Constitution, Mormons are not eliminated from the presidency. Of course, there are no Constitutional prohibitions forbidding a citizen from voting for or against someone because of their religious (or irreligious) beliefs. So, what should an evangelical Christian do in the coming Presidential Election between Barak Obama and Mitt Romney? I cannot speak for others, let alone for all evangelicals, but I can tell you what one evangelical voter is going to do and why. Here are some of the main prin ...
In a landmark decision, the Supreme Court ruled President Obama's healthcare mandate is constitutional. This is a major victory for President Obama, who spent three years promoting it, and a major setback for Mitt Romney, who spent three years creating it. Jay Leno (June 28, 2012
Video on msnbc.com: Senior Advisor to Mitt Romney's campaign Ed Gillespie joins Morning Joe to discuss Romney's position on tax cuts, entitlement programs and the Supreme Court's ruling on the president's Health Care law.
Bill Moyers intro to his show this week in which he talks about the "money is speech" fantasy espoused and codified so blatantly by a corrupt SCOTUS: BILL MOYERS: Welcome. In all the hullabaloo over the Supreme Court's decision on Health Care, another of its rulings quickly fell off the public radar. Before deciding the fate of the Affordable Care Act, the Court announced it would not reconsider Citizens United. That's the odious 5-4 decision two years ago that opened our elections to unlimited contributions. Within minutes of that announcement, right-wing partisans were crowing about the advantage they now own. An advantage not due to ideas or personalities, but to the sheer force of money. They were remarkably candid and specific. Here’s what Fred Barnes wrote in "The Weekly Standard" about the Senate race in Missouri: "For three weeks in May, Republican super-PACs took turns attacking Democratic Senator Claire Mccaskill in TV ads. Republicans hadn’t held their primary—it’s not until August 7— ...
If you think you’re seeing Stephanie Cutter everywhere these days, you would be right. There she is after the recent Supreme Court ruling accusing Mitt Romney of not being truthful about his position on Health Care Reform, dueling with Republican heavyweights on national television, giving the...
This except from a right wing website This was the week of the PPACA ruling in the Supreme Court, in which Chief Justice Roberts essentially told Americans to take our medicine — this was what we asked for when we voted for Obama and his majorities in Congress, and if we don’t like it we can change it in November. As tough a pill as that was to swallow for conservatives, it might be an equally tough one to see this weeks’ electoral map update. There is no doubt about it: last week was not exactly a banner week for Mitt Romney. The barrage of negative ads lobbied by the Obama campaign halted his favorablility ratings’ upward trend, and all of his momentum in swing states evaporated. In fact, this week marks the best single week for President Obama we’ve had since we’ve started the map, as several states shifted blue. From last week’s update, we now have Ohio and Virginia both returning to the Lean Obama category, with new polls showing Obama rediscovering his mojo in those ultimate swing stat ...
Good morning uppers, here's your SUNDAY show thread! Today we're talking about the record heat and the politics of global warming, the fallout from the Supreme Court's ruling on the Affordable Care Act and reports that Mitt Romney's former firm, Bain Capital, invested in companies that moved jobs overseas.
FLORIDA SAYS "NO" To Obamacare. Period. Governor Rick Scott announces that his state will tirelessly oppose Obamacare and will not implement exchanges or expansion of Medicare. Florida, the state the led the fight against President Obama's Health Care law, will not comply with the Supreme Court opinion. Gov. Rick Scott tells Fox News that he and his Attorney General, Pam Bondi, will work tirelessly to make sure the law is repealed. He feels that can be done by electing officials, like Mitt Romney, who have vowed to fight the law before 2014, when most of its provisions kick in.
Mitt Romney flip flopped again and directly contradicted himself when he told CBS the Individual Mandate is a tax. Last week, Romney advisor Eric Fehrnstrom made it clear that Governor Romney agreed with the Supreme Court's opinion that the mandate is a tax. Now he's changing his tune to fall in l...
Republicans may have renewed reason to think well of Chief Justice John Roberts. Mitt Romney argued Wednesday that Roberts' Supreme Court ruling uncovered Barack Obama's hidden tax in the Affordable Care Act while simultaneously proving that Romney's similarly designed measure in his Massachusetts h...

UPDATED: JULY 3, 2012 9:22 PM EST Letters to the editor: Politicking from altar criticized ERIE TIMES-NEWS On a recent Sunday at Mass, we were treated to a visiting priest and a political speech in place of a homily. This traveling padre drew upon the acclaimed story "A Christmas Carol" to garner support for Erie Catholic Bishop Donald Trautman's pending litigation against the Affordable Care Act. Somehow the ghost of Christmas past was to serve as a metaphor for previous Supreme Court rulings on abortion, women's rights and birth control to illustrate the slippery slope of moral decay and its culmination in President Obama. Although there were no Mitt Romney signs taped to the altar, the strategy is familiar. Every election cycle, someone is tapped to give the Republican stump speech during the homily. I believe in the Catholic tradition. I believe personally that abortion is wrong. I also believe that a theocracy, whether Islamic, evangelical, Catholic, Mormon, Druid or Wicken, is antithetical to very b ...
Undercutting what top adviser Eric Fehrnstrom said a few days ago, Mitt Romney on Wednesday flatly stated that President Obama’s Individual Mandate, which the Supreme Court upheld last week, is indeed “a tax.”
Who won the Supreme Court decision on Health Care last week? Mitt Romney. Now he finally has red meat to throw to his audience. The law won't be overturned, it will be enforced, and 35 million americans will be required to pay a tax or penalty they did not have to pay before. I cannot reconcile the Chief Justice's "switch" to his long-standing deference to the Legislative Branch, a deference that was absent in Citizens United, a decision that could have gone the other way simply by reasoning that corporations enjoy some constitutional protections, say the protection against having property seized unlawfully, but not all the protections of a "natural born citizen." Corporations cannot vote, for example. Maybe Roberts is a political player. He helps Obama get the masses stirred up against Obama and Democrats generally, the masses vote out Obama and sufficient Senate Democrats to end debate, and the the law is politically nullified. Maybe he swapped a vote for Obamacare in exchange for a vote against Roe v W ...

Mitt Romney and his wife, Ann, spoke to Jan Crawford about the landmark Supreme Court Health Care ruling, the latest in his campaign and what he's seeking in a Vice Presidential candidate.
On one of the most important weekends to date in the 2012 presidential campaign, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal appeared on ABC’s “This Week” and NBC’s “Meet The Press,” respectively, as Mitt Romney surrogates to discuss the Supreme Court decision that upheld Obamacare.
7/4/12 - During her Wednesday interview with Mitt Romney, CBS News’ Jan Crawford, as expected of a member of the liberal media,sought to embarrass Mitt by pressing him on whether he had flip-flopped on calling the mandate a tax. Romney responded to her attack by arguing that Barack Hussein Obama was the one who had changed his tune on the Health Care law. “You can try and say you wish [the court] had decided a different way, but they didn’t,” Romney said. “They concluded it was a tax; so that’s what it is. And the American People know that President Obama, clearly, has broken the pledge he made. He said he wouldn’t raise taxes on middle-income Americans, and not only did he raise the $500 billion that was already in the bill, it’s now clear that his mandate, as described by the Supreme Court, is a tax.” As a candidate who has opposed any new tax increases, Mitt has leaned on the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution, which gives states all powers not granted to the Federal Government. He ...
Accountability begins with you! Chief Justice John Roberts The court's gift from Chief Justice John Roberts. To Mitt Romney: Now the fun begins. Nothing can fire the anger of an American like the arrogance of a government lawyer with his foot on the throat of a helpless citizen, and the justices of the Supreme Court are the government lawyers with the biggest feet of all. The justices sent a message loud and clear in their decision upholding Obamacare and the requirement that everybody has to buy a health insurance policy, or else. That's a tax, the court held, and the power to tax is the holiest of holies for any government. It's the first rule of politics as well. Franklin D. Roosevelt, the father of the big government that runs everything today, famously described his four-term success as "tax and tax, spend and spend, elect and elect." Some people expected Obamacare to be upheld, but nobody expected it to be upheld as an affirmation of the power to tax. We just weren't paying attention. Chief Justice ...
So July 4 is a holiday whose meaning still resonates, despite centuries of contradictory history and circumstance. And it ought to be a day for remembering, as I’ve long argued, that liberalism is as patriotic as apple pie. But it is also worth noting that the form of American exceptionalism most loudly promoted today is encrusted with unwholesome propaganda. As articulated by the great thinkers of the Republican right, from George W. Bush to Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney, it is transformed into an aggressive nationalism, a disdain for world opinion, and an ostentatious piety that would have repelled the intellectual leaders of the founding generation. Republican braying about American exceptionalism sounds especially fraudulent in a season when their party is preparing to nominate an unabashed plutocrat for the presidency. By corrupting the US political system with Dark Money and corporate personhood, their Supreme Court Justices, their Congressional leaders, and now their presidential candidate would ...
I was glued to the TV during the Robert Bork confirmation hearings. I believe he was one of the best qualified men every nominated to the Supreme Court. Here is his essay on why he and others in the legal profession are supporting Mitt Romney
NEXT STEPS FOR CONG. ROSKAM: TAKE THE OBAMACARE CHALLENGE With a twinge of optimism, I pressed PLAY to hear my Congressman Peter Roskam's email video entitled Next Steps following the June 28 Supreme Court ruling that Obamacare was Constitutional. Alas, the Congressman came out trumpeting his upcoming July 11 House vote to repeal Obamacare. Roskam objected to the "massive" new tax on the middle class that the law will bring, not mentioning that it will affect less than 1% of taxpayers who may choose to play Russian Roulette with their personal health finances while they drag down the entire and vital public need for every American to be part of the overall solution. We call that taking care of the Commons. Funny, Roskam doesn't call the requirement to buy car liability insurance a tax. I suspect he would object vehemently if a law was proposed to end mandatory auto insurance in Illinois. Nor did Roskam mention that the original "mandate" to buy health insurance came from Willard Mitt Romney, who made it t ...
As unlikely as it may be, there is only one way to overturn Obamacare. Republicans delegates must exercise Rule 38 in Tampa and nominate Ron Paul over Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney gave Barack Obama the blueprint for Obamacare. Romney may go in and repeal it, but he still believes that government has the authority to be involved in healthcare decisions. He proved this as governor of Massachusetts. So even if he gets rids of Obamacare, he will replace it with some other government program that simply will not work. So there you go... that's our only hope outside of Constitutional Convention and amendment rendering the Supreme Court decision null and void. I don't know if I trust the state legislators around the nation to do so. As a matter of fact, a Constitutional Convention would probably be a disaster to principles of natural rights that the document was founded upon.
Why John Roberts is Mitt Romney's Secret Weapon By Kevin McCullough 7/1/2012 I would caution my fellow conservatives on the frustration they may be enticed to express at Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts. It is unwarranted, and it is unwise. The reason I state such is that it is my firm belief that the Roberts' decision on the Obamacare mandate will without question bring about ultimate doom to the government control of healthcare, and through the best means possible--not judicial activism--but through the democratic process. In boxing terminology no one has pulled a "rope-a-dope" this effective since Muhammad Ali himself. In doing so, it is clear that John Roberts duped the liberal wing of the Supreme Court into agreeing with him on calling out President Obama as legislatively dishonest, while assisting the conservative wing of the court into dismantling punitive measures against the states, and greatly limiting the ability of the legislature to use the powers of the commerce clause of the constit ...

I love this kind of reporting. Maybe Fox, CNN and MNBC could learn from it. FACT CHECK: Buyer beware in health debate Email this Story Jul 2, 12:20 PM (ET) By CALVIN WOODWARD and RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR (AP) In this Thursday, June 28, 2012 file photo, President Barack Obama speaks in the East Room... Full Image WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama promises nothing will change for people who like their health coverage except it'll become more affordable, but the facts don't back him up. Mitt Romney groundlessly calls the Health Care law a slayer of jobs certain to deepen the national debt. Welcome to the Health Care debate 2.0. As the claims fly, buyer beware. After the Supreme Court upheld the law last week, Obama stepped forward to tell Americans what good will come from it. Romney was quick to lay out the harm. But some of the evidence they gave to the court of public opinion was suspect. A look at their claims and how they compare with the facts: --- OBAMA: "If you're one of the more than 250 milli ...
from "What the Supreme Court's Ruling Means for Consumers" By Louise Radnofsky | The Wall Street Journal – Thu, Jun 28, 2012 11:42 AM EDT Q: Does this mean the health overhaul law is in place for good? A: The decision effectively upholds the law for now, but its future depends on which party controls the White House and Congress after elections in November. President Barack Obama and most Democrats consider the law a signature achievement and want to move forward implementing it. Republicans, including presumptive presidential nominee Mitt Romney, have pledged to overturn it. They say they would offer an alternative proposal but haven't been specific about what it would include.
A new beginning... After Thursday's Supreme Court victory on Health Care, Democrats are feeling a lot better about President Obama's chances in November. The New York Times takes a look at how the Obama campaign's relentless attack on Mitt Romney's record at Bain Capital is doing …
Given recent Supreme Court decisions and November's Presidential Election, there was no lack of material up for discussion at the Tea Party's second annual "We the People" convention. And as Jeff Glor reports, supporters of the movement still express reservations about voting for Mitt Romney.
Keith Olbermann believes that the Supreme Court's recent Health Care ruling leaves Mitt Romney with not one, but two "insurmountable problems."

CBC.ca Next Battleground of Health Care Debate New York Times - 38 minutes ago WASHINGTON - Shortly after the US Supreme Court's historic Health Care decision, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney appeared before the cameras to offer their spin.
Can't we all just get along? (RIP, Rodney) The discussion of the Supreme Court Health Care decision has become predictable party line spew. Both sides are now preaching to their respective choirs. The happy Democrats are re-energized with two big wins. Republicans are finding Romney's is their new Reagan and rallying around him. Independents, who will decide this election, have moved on in search of a reason to vote for either candidate. Game on for an election that could make 2000 look like a warm and fuzzy Kodak moment. The rehashing of inflexible partisans has become boring. Besides, my family is telling me I post too much. So here's my summary of the discussion. If you love the Affordable Care Act: Yes, the centerpiece of President Obama's domestic agenda is saved. Celebrate; Yes, millions of Americans who have had no health insurance will be covered. Celebrate; Yes, Mitt Romney is the one Republican who can least use ACA as an issue against the President. Celebrate; Yes, If Romney is electe ...
Breaking from Newsmax.com Chief Justice Roberts' Well-Played Move By Susan Estrich You have to hand it to the Chief Justice. He saved the healthcare bill and with it, perhaps, the Supreme Court's reputation as something other than the third branch of a government that is hopelessly divided along party lines. And he did it in a way that sticks it to the administration by calling it a tax and allowing Mitt Romney (when he's not defending the similar "tax" he passed in Massachusetts) to attack President Obama as another tax-and-spend liberal.
Mitt Romney's post Supreme Court ruling comments were ironically made from the Heritage Foundation, which was the conservative think tank which wrote the almost identical healthcare legislation in 1993 to the "Affordable Care Act." It was their plan first...now look what they're saying about especially from there. How come so many people take these people so seriously? Incredible!
Es gibt auch solche Menschen in Crystal River. Questions to Republicans: Now that the Supreme Court has ruled Obamacare constitutional, will you continue to obsess over repealing it or will you focus on working with Democrats to pass legislation to create jobs? Will you force the 3.1 million young people who have health coverage as a result of Obamacare off of their parents’ insurance? Will you tell cancer patients and others with pre-existing conditions that they are on their own, like Republican senate candidate Richard Mourdock and Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) did? Will you throw seniors back into the Medicare prescription drug donut hole, raising their prescription drugs costs by billions of dollars each year? Will you let insurance companies go back to spending less than 80 percent of premiums on actual medical care instead of overheard, advertising and profits? Since you are now saying the Obamacare Individual Mandate makes President Obama a tax raiser, doesn’t that mean Mitt Romney raised taxes on ...
