Romney: another big lie

Romney: another big lie

    4 Pinocchios for a truncated, 14-year-old Obama clip      Just as we have not been very impressed about many of the Obama campaign’s claims about Mitt Romney’s business career many years ago, we were not initially that impressed with the Romney campaign’s effort to dredge up a 14-year-old quote to demonstrate that President Obama wants to “redistribute wealth.”  The clip was so old — he was just a state senator — and the ...

Romney hates America?

Romney hates America?

          Does Romney dislike America?     By E.J. Dionne Jr.    The most incisive reaction to Mitt Romney’s disparaging comments about 47 percent of us came from a conservative friend who e-mailed: “If I were you, I’d wonder why Romney hates America so much.” A bit strong, perhaps. But the more you think about what Romney said, the more you wonder how he really feels about the country he wants to lead. What ... Full Story

Growing into liberalism

Growing into liberalism

By Stephanie Rayburn     Growing into political maturity I grew up Republican. My whole family is Republican. I grew up around my grandparents hearing slurs like "liberal idiots" and "lazy welfare recipients" even at the same time that they demonstrated how to give generously to those who need it. I listened to Rush Limbaugh -- admired him even because I was young and impressionable and I didn't yet know about how adults twist the truth for their personal benefit ... Full Story

The 47% responds with a poem

  Oh, my god, Mitt I'm apparently unfit To deserve your concern   I 'm on medicare, you see, And social security And you may as well learn   I believe the fed Should help 'til I'm dead If I can't do it on my own   Government should protect me Certainly not neglect me None can make it alone   Not even you, for one A wealthy man's son Whose path was paved with green   Don't tell me that you Had no ...

Romney’s theory of the “taker class”

Romney’s theory of the “taker class”

Romney’s theory of the “taker class,” and why it matters Posted by Ezra Kline There will be plenty said about the politics of Romney’s remarks. But I want to take a moment and talk about the larger argument behind them, because this vision of a society divided between “makers” and “takers” is core to the Republican nominee’s policy agenda. In his comments, Romney says that “these are people who pay no income tax,” but they are people “who are dependent upon ... Full Story

Religious Conviction

Religious Conviction

  I’ve been avoiding this subject publicly. There are many who refuse to accept any responsibility to their maker, and many more that were not properly introduced. Some have been lured in to corrupted versions of reality. The rest of us are still learning. I write to the majority of Americans called Christians. We share the original Biblical source of information and direction. I’m not going to reference specific scripture here; you look it up.   There is great concern with ... Full Story

Romney Suffers From Pre-existing Positions

Romney Suffers From Pre-existing Positions

A Commentary By Froma Harrop in Rasmussen Reports Tuesday, September 11, 2012 What Mitt Romney truly believes is anybody's guess. Whether Romney as president would act on those beliefs is also a guess. And we can't rule out the possibility that he doesn't have any beliefs outside of religion and investment strategies. Why he's running for president remains unclear, though commander in chief looks impressive on a nametag. Asked over the weekend whether by killing Obamacare he would ... Full Story

Is President Obama a big spender?

Is President Obama a big spender?

The answer is a big yes and no. As Mark Twain said, “Figures don’t lie, but liars figure.” It is not exactly a case of “lying,” but rather a case of putting a spin on what the numbers mean. The two articles from Forbes Magazine presented below are excellent examples.     In “ Who Is The Smallest Government Spender Since Eisenhower?”  a May, 2012 article, Rick Ungar makes the case that it is Barack Obama. He includes a graph that shows the annualized growth ... Full Story

Romney, view of world and education

Romney, view of world and education

      Romney's World View By Michael Brenner Mitt Romney's provocative remarks in Jerusalem this week on Palestine and Iran have focused attention on how he thinks about American foreign policy generally. Beyond the immediate controversy, there is fresh reason to puzzle as to who exactly the Republican presidential nominee is and who are the people he relies on for advice. For his reputation in the United States as a reserved, scripted candidate who strives to ... Full Story
