GM on Romney: ‘Campaign politics at its cynical worst’

The Romney campaign has reached a new despicable low. The Romney/Repubs are just lying left and right in an attempt to diminish one of President Obama's greatest achievements. Obama took the brave course not necessarily the popular course when he bailed out the US auto industry. 

"Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne has already responded to one Romney ad, trying to reassure frightened Jeep employees that their jobs were not being shipped overseas to China, as the Romney campaign was trying to imply. The Romney camp responded not by pulling the ads, but by cutting a new radio ad in which the lies and economic terrorism are more blatant still".

Barack Obama is the leader for these times.

Thank God we have a competent leader during times of national emergencies. I am doubly thankful that our President has appointed non-political professionals to lead our emergency agencies. I remember all too well when a past president seated political contributors to head up FEMA. Remember Brownie?

Thank you Mr. President!!!!

Romney Avoids Taxes via Loophole Cutting Mormon Donations

Republican leaning BLOOMBURG News has put forth the best possibility yet as to why Romney won’t release his taxes like his father before him. Who can blame him really as the “anybody but Obama crowd" does not seem to give a damn!

If you’re a billionaire, you use every trick in the book to shelter your uber-wealth  from our nation’s tax system (loopholes, Swiss bank accounts, etc.) and you want to be President of the United States of America, come clean. Show us where you hide and shelter your millions, we have a right to know and you have a moral responsibility to come clean.

So you are going to Vote for Mitt Romney

Anyone who knows me knows I am a political junkie. Always have been always will be. My sixteen year old daughter and I watched Romney’s performance in all the republican debates. I don’t think we missed a one. Romney positioned himself so far to the right in those debates; Ronald Reagan looked like a liberal.  It is bad enough that Romney was a pro-choice Governor of Massachusetts who now believes Big Government should determine a woman’s choice.  It peeves me even more that when Romney ran for the US Senate he claimed to be more of a champion of gay rights then Ted Kennedy. Now he emphatically states that marriage is between one man and one woman, PERIOD! On health care reform, Governor Romney created Romneycare in Massachusetts; Romneycare is eerily similar to Obamacare. Now Romney would end Obamacare “on day one”. Gun control: Ha! I am a second amendment Liberal, and now I see a Pro Gun Control Governor Romney become a champion of gun owner’s rights.  This all upsets and concerns me. But the hardest thing to take is watching Romney change from the righty he was a few months ago during the republican primary, to the moderate even liberal Romney that has emerged right before the general election. I see it, my sixteen year old daughter sees it, do you see it?  Fox news and most of the mainstream media have reported little on Romney’s instant transformation from a righty to a Liberal/Moderate. That is just unfortunate as Americans need to know.

The other thing many of you don’t give a damn about is Romney’s tax returns. What is he hiding? When McCain was looking at Romney as his possible VP running mate he demanded Romney give him twelve years of tax returns. Romney DID hand McCain twelve years (What? We are not good enough?) of his tax returns and McCain picked Sarah Palin as his running mate. Why??

Romney’s own father who was a candidate for president himself once said the following; “One year could be a fluke, perhaps done for show,”…

That’s right; in 1967 when George Romney was running for President he released his actual tax returns for the previous 12 years. George Romney said; “One year could be a fluke, perhaps done for show,” The elder Romney was correct. His son, the Republican nominee in 2012, prefers to show almost nothing. Mitt Romney has only released his tax returns for 2010 and an estimate for 2011. That’s not good enough.

I’ll end my rant… chances are if you are one of the “Anybody but Obama Crowd” you stopped reading long ago. All I can do at this point is pray that folks who are considering a vote for Romney will look at the facts. Look at Romney’s words and actions. Don’t listen to Fox news, look deeper, read the real facts and I am confident you will see, Mitt Romney is not the person to lead this great nation over the next four years, President Obama is.

The Obama Plan

If I hear one more right-wing-nut say that Obama has no plan, I am going to explode. The Obama plan is clear and concise and expands many of the accomplishments of the last four years. Compare the Obama Plan to the sketchy nothingness of the Romney plan and you will agree: Re-Elect the President. Read for yourself:

Obama has received far more in campaign contributions than Romney from military donors.

“Based on reporting from the Center for Responsive Politics, including September fundraising, Obama has received $678,611 from military donors, far more than Romney's total of $398,450”.

The reason sited most by experts is Obama has kept his promise to end the war in Iraq and has started to pull troops out of Afghanistan. In addition, Obama has done more than most Presidents when it comes to supporting the troops once they come home.

One person who supports the Re-Election of OUR President speaks out:
