Wealthiest Americans Could See Huge Disaster Payouts In Wake Of Hurricane Sandy

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The nation’s wealthiest received more than $7.5 million in disaster assistance between 2007 and 2010 even as communities across the country continued to struggle to return to normal after national disasters.
That total that went to those make $1 million or more was a small portion of the more than $834 million that was doled out as disaster housing assistance during that period.
But with tens of thousands of middle and working class citizens with out homes in the wake of Hurricane Sandy it could become a flash point in Congress when lawmakers return to Washington next month.
Sen. Tom Coburn, a hardline conservative, first highlighted the payments to millionaires in his 2011 report, Subsidies of the Rich and Famous.
if this election goes the way of Republicans then the disproportionate spreading of the wealth to the wealthy will continue into a law. and the Scotus appointee would put it in stone, then you know the social programs will be cut to ribbons to pay for them
 “Millionaires can clearly afford insurance coverage for their homes and property and should not need disaster aid,” the report argued.
next to no taxes and they want what they want to deny "we the people" unless they can cut something else to pay for the free ride, not by the poor as they led you to believe but to the millionaire buddies. recognize it ain't about you.

Labor Dept: October jobs report ready Friday despite hurricane

i'm thinking must be ok news depending on where the labor dept. is leaning, but getting them out before the election double edged sword.

With both presidential campaigns making the economy a central issue in their arguments to voters, the monthly report on the nation's unemployment rate has become a focal point of the race.

i'm thinking as long as it's not -800,000 or even +50,000 still positive and 50,000 more are back to work may not be your turn but rest assured it's not a losing battle as it was in 2008.

GM joins Chrysler in smacking down Romney ad claiming it's moving jobs to China

It's not just Chrysler. A radio ad for Mitt Romney includes General Motors in his campaign's false claims that, because of President Barack Obama, American auto manufacturers will be moving jobs from the U.S. to China, and GM is not happy with Romney:
"At this stage, we're looking at Hubble telescope-length distances between campaign ads and reality. GM's creatingjobs in the U.S. and repatriating profits back to this country should be a source of bipartisan pride," GM spokesman Greg Martin said. "We've clearly entered some parallel universe during these last few days. No amount of campaign politics at its cynical worst will diminish our record of creating jobs in the U.S. and repatriating profits back to this country."
so much for his love for cars.
False campaign ads telling swing state voters they're going to lose their jobs because of Obama may be a way to scare up some Romney votes. But forcing two giant, high-profile swing state employers to denounce your lies to their workers and the world—going into detail along the way about all the jobs they've created and will continue to create in the U.S.—may just undercut that fear-mongering effort.
American's he has taken a page from his son's playbook, he just keeps on with the same rebuked lies hoping someone other than his base believes it, but he's trying so hard at that he hasn't noticed the mutiny taking place i'm sure because of his and Ryan's habitual lying.

who's really picking winner's and loser's?

exposed for their "i know you are but what am i"  tactic's  except Pee Wee was funny.

'Base' Michael Moore Ad Riles Conservatives - Feisty seniors use some salty language

warning elderly people using adult language.
these are the elderly 47% who as stated his job is not to worry about them. they are the faces of your family' elderly are you going to let the party of death squads have their way with them?
this is and always has been about "we the people" and what is more important, a party of hate and lies or the party proven time and again they've got your back, even if you voted for the evil one's. can Romney make that claim legitimately?

Jeb Bush Says Obama Is Acting Like A 10-Year-Old

wondered how long before former Gov. of Fla. who IMO was complicit to his brother GW Bush stealing the 2004 election would show his true right wing colors.  is this just another code word to the base for calling Pres. a boy?
The former Florida Governor has chosen to bring his opinion to light as Obama and Romney are essentially deadlocked in quite a few states.
The main issue that Bush has with Obama is the fact that he tends to act like a 10-year-old, during his debates.
“When you act like that, when you blame other people and when you use profane language, and when you act like you’re a 10-year-old, sometimes as in the debates, I don’t think that independent voters and undecided voters are really moved by that,” Bush explained.
is he just hung up on the fact that the Black Pres. is forced into cleaning up his idiot bros. pillaging of our economy, and accomplished things he could never have done in 8 more years. sour grapes?
“I’m a Mitt Romney fan,” Bush added. “I hope that President Obama continues to campaign these last 10 days in that surly way, because if he does, I think he loses. We have a temporary time in American history where our culture has been coarsened, where people’s expectations are low. We’re living in a different time.”
is he saying Pres. only got elected because American's lowerd the bar? they did but it was 2000 not 20008. being a Romney fan just exemplifies his propensity to lie, birds of a feather.

Past Controversies, More Than Future Plans, Have Come To Dominate The Campaign — Here's Why

remember it's incumbent on Congress to come up with a deal the Pres. only signs it.
Let Detroit Go Bankrupt
Mitt Romney’s 2009 New York Times op-ed, the headline of which was “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt,” still causes him heartburn. Romney was proposing something very technical — a managed bankruptcy of the sort the Obama administration ultimately oversaw — not a more colloquial understanding of “bankruptcy” as terminal financial ruin. But if you dig even deeper, you find that Romney was opposed to using federal dollars to provide GM and Chrysler a financial bridge through the bankruptcy process. He wanted the private sector to provide that financing,
Disaster Relief
Hurricane Sandy’s approach and landfall brought renewed attention to comments Romney made months ago during a primary debate, when he lumped disaster relief into the same category of federal budgetary priorities that ought to be handed off to states, or, better yet, private companies. 
Defense Cuts
If Obama wins Virginia, he’ll likely win the whole election. Which is why Republicans there are pushing the idea that, automatic scheduled cuts to defense spending, are his idea and his fault. They’re referring to the “sequester” — an enforcement mechanism Congress passed on a bipartisan basis and Obama signed to resolve the debt limit fight last summer.
The idea of including an enforcement mechanism in the debt limit deal was a consequence of two different demands: one, by John Boehner, that every dollar in new borrowing authority Congress provided be accompanied by a dollar cut to federal spending, another, by Obama, that Congress raise the debt limit enough to take the issue off the table through election season.
To meet both demands, Congress had to assure that the budget would be cut over 10 years by over $2 trillion, but could only agree on about $1 trillion up front. The sequester was designed to threaten both Democratic and Republican priorities, so that both parties would negotiate in good faith to avoid it. That’s why half of it targets domestic programs. Democrats offered up several Republican sacred cows to fill in the other half, including, for instance, the Bush tax cuts for top earners. Republicans ultimately agreed to the defense cuts. 
getting any clearer, are you seeing that the right wing's attempt to kick dirt on the Pres.'s shoes is their dirt not his.  and all this time they've made it all about him levying all these tax hikes and potential job loss on "we the people" when it was really "them the republicans".
The GOP’s opposition to higher taxes on top earners has been the single largest impediment to replacing the sequester, and now that it’s weeks away from taking effect, Republicans are blaming its defense cuts on Obama. At the final presidential debate, Obama insisted that the sequester “will not happen”, but it’s still unclear how it’ll be avoided, whoever wins the election
who does your "common sense" tell you is best for America?

The Making Of Romney's Storm Relief Event
A scramble to depoliticize a political campaign, and $5,000 in supplies from Wal-Mart. “Just grab something.”
On Monday morning, Romney's local team in Dayton was eagerly preparing to host the candidate the following day. A high school gym had been reserved, a stage had been rented, and a pair of celebrity guests — country singer Randy Owen, and NASCAR driver Richard Petty — had been booked to give the event some B-list heft.
Then, a little before noon, communications director Gail Gitcho announced the cancellation of "all events currently scheduled" for Tuesday. The superstorm that forecasters had been warning about for days had picked up steam, and people throughout the northeast were now bracing for the worst. In a statement, Gitcho said the decision to cancel campaign events had been made "out of sensitivity to the millions of Americans in the path of Hurricane Sandy."
So, after some deliberation, the campaign decided to use their existing venue in Ohio to stage a makeshift, and nonpartisan, humanitarian project. It would be a way for Romney to show leadership — and get on the local news — without looking craven or opportunistic.
To complete the project and photo-op, Romney would lead his crew in carrying the goods out of the gymnasium and into the Penske rental truck parked outside.
But the last-minute nature of the call for donations left some in the campaign concerned that they would end up with an empty truck. So the night before the event, campaign aides went to a local Wal Mart and spent $5,000 on granola bars, canned food, and diapers to put on display while they waited for donations to come in, according to one staffer. (The campaign confirmed that it "did donate supplies to the relief effort," but would not specify how much it spent.)
"We were incredibly pleased with the outpouring of support we received from volunteers and generous contributors from southwest and central Ohio," said Christopher Maloney, Romney's Ohio spokesman, adding, "We’re pleased that Ohio could play a role, albeit a minor one, in the relief effort."
the support they received???  thought this was about the disaster victims, $5,000. to keep from looking bad if no one shows.
But the event had its hitches. When reporters s arrived on site ahead of the candidate, they were given press badges describing the event as a "victory rally" — a result, one aide told BuzzFeed, of the event's last-minute repurposing. He said the badges were printed Monday morning, before the change had been announced.
And shortly thereafter, the two large projector screens near the ceiling lit up with a glossy, 10-minute biographical video about the candidate, one that debuted at the Republican National Convention. A state campaign official blamed "someone from the audiovisual team" for playing the video without the campaign's permission.
do you really believe that was not an intentional campaign ploy, multi millionaire Romney gets a photo pt for 5,000 bucks of tainted good will toward the disaster victims, wonder how many were the aforementioned 47%?

But even as Romney, clad in blue jeans and rolled-up sleeves, hustled around his area of the gym, shaking hands, thanking supporters, and stacking cases of bottled water on top of each other, signs of stagecraft remained.
As supporters lined up to greet the candidate, a young volunteer in a Romney/Ryan t-shirt stood near the tables, his hands cupped around his mouth, shouting, "You need a donation to get in line!"
Empty-handed supporters pled for entrance, with one woman asking, "What if we dropped off our donations up front?"
The volunteer gestured toward a pile of groceries conveniently stacked near the candidate. "Just grab something," he said.
where is Issa there's fraud here, but they are probably looking in the other camp instead of going where you know it 

Bloomberg tells Obama not to visit New York

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (I) said President Obama offered to visit the city in the wake of Hurricane Sandy but Bloomberg told him that everyone has “lots of things to do” instead.
Bloomberg said he didn’t want to “diss” Obama and was flattered by the offer. Obama is scheduled to visit New Jersey on Wednesday, where the hurricane made landfall. The mayor said that trip would represent the whole region.
“What I pointed out to them is we would love to have him, but we have lots of things to do,” Bloomberg said at a press conference. “I’m not trying to diss him. But I know he had planned a trip to New Jersey, and I said that is fine. It represents the whole region. ... He has got a lot of things to do, and I was flattered that he offered to come.”
Bloomberg is an independent some polls have the Pres. behind in independent voters smelling anything yet?
Bloomberg didn’t say whether he thought the storm was a result of man-made global warming, but said there is no doubt the climate is changing and the city could learn from the storm.
“Is this — a storm like this that is so strong and so unusual — a global warming incident? I think what is clear is the climate is changing, nobody knows if it is a [cyclical] or secular thing. I think each of these storms we have to learn to see if we can do some things better the next time,” Bloomberg said.
Echoing New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R), Bloomberg called the administration and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) very helpful throughout the storm.
does he know Romney is planning to deep six FEMA,Cantor wants to be guaranteed reimbursement, not good pick Romney if your state is subject to storms disasters. yes IMO he is dissing the Pres.

as opposed to what not moving fast enough
Former FEMA director Michael Brown, who was heavily criticized for the agency's failure to prepare for Hurricane Katrina, has criticized President Obama for responding to Hurricane Sandy too early.
In an interview with Denver Westword, Brown said, "One thing [President Obama's] gonna be asked is, why did he jump on [Hurricane Sandy] so quickly and go back to D.C. so quickly when in ... Benghazi, he went to Las Vegas? Why was this so quick? ... At some point, somebody's going to ask that question."
to equate the two is why Bush said you're doing a heck of a job Brownie"
he went back to DC because this was the beginning of a potential disaster not one that was already done. he did not sit there looking like he crapped his pants like Bush on 911, his 15 minutes were up and were more humiliation then anything he didn't do. did they allow this or another gone rogue failure?
Brown said the president may have had a more positive effect had he waited until Sunday afternoon to address the storm instead of holding a press conference that morning.
and this from a totally inept unequipt appointee without qualification, waiting till Sunday would have lost time and possible moves to prepare or remedy.
he would not know about that hence Katrina, and the base votes on.

No Supreme Court action to curb the Voting Rights Act — yet

WASHINGTON (AP) — Three years ago, the Supreme Court warned there could be constitutional problems with a landmark civil rights law that has opened voting booths to millions of African-Americans. Now, opponents of a key part of the Voting Rights Act are asking the high court to finish off that provision.
The basic question is whether state and local governments that once boasted of their racial discrimination still can be forced in the 21st century to get federal permission before making changes in the way they hold elections.
notice key words 3 years ago, smell the right wing voter blocking agenda this would not be here if not for their lost to a Black Man.  was this hatched during that imfamous meeting by republicans to plan how to disrupt this admin and give them no joy?
adapted from my new book, The New New Deal: The Hidden Story of Change in the Obama Era. It reveals some of my reporting on the Republican plot to obstruct President Obama before he even took office, including secret meetings led by House GOP whip Eric Cantor (in December 2008) and Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell (in early January 2009) in which they laid out their daring (though cynical and political) no-honeymoon strategy of all-out resistance to a popular President-elect during an economic emergency. “If he was for it,” former Ohio Senator George Voinovich explained, “we had to be against it.” 
if Romney is in then the voter rights are out along with Roe v Wade

unsuspecting good lookin' out

Former head of the Republican National Committee Michael Steele ripped his successor, current RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, on Monday for comparing President Obama to the Italian cruise ship captain who allegedly abandoned ship and has been arrested on multiple charges.
"I think it's an unfortunate analogy. I mean, people died in that situation," Steele said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Monday in Florida.
On CBS's "Face the Nation" on Sunday, Priebus referred to President Obama as "Capt. Schettino."
“We’re going to talk about our own little Capt. Schettino, which is President Obama, who’s abandoning the ship here in the United States and is more interested in campaigning than doing his job as president,” Priebus said.
Francesco Schettino was the captain of the Costa Concordia, the cruise ship that ran aground and partially sank off the coast of Italy earlier this month, killing at least 16 people.
Steele, an MSNBC political analyst, was also critical of the RNC's effectiveness, saying the committee "dropped the ball" when it came to reaching out to voters. 
they are jumping ship daily, massive attack of conscious?  i think Steele's day were numbered when at the out set of his appt. he said "i gonna bring some color up i here"
to claim Bush was made fun of or called names IMO well deserved, does not excuse the racist remarks and caricatures the right wing has propagated throughout this election and last 4 years. if he walked on water they would claim he can't swim.

You don't get to call yourself pro-life

In my world, you don’t get to call yourself “pro-life” and be against common-sense gun control — like banning public access to the kind of semiautomatic assault rifle, designed for warfare, that was used recently in a Colorado theater. You don’t get to call yourself “pro-life” and want to shut down the Environmental Protection Agency, which ensures clean air and clean water, prevents childhood asthma, preserves biodiversity and combats climate change that could disrupt every life on the planet. You don’t get to call yourself “pro-life” and oppose programslike Head Start that provide basic education, health and nutrition for the most disadvantaged children. You can call yourself a “pro-conception-to-birth, indifferent-to-life conservative.” I will never refer to someone who pickets Planned Parenthood but lobbies against common-sense gun laws as “pro-life.”
whew!  talk about the reality of now.
it will be hard for a anyone holding a long time sense of "holier then thou", to accept the derogatory that glares in their adherence to one thing and complicity with another in defiance, therein lies their conundrum, they want one thing that is contradictory to the next thing. recognizing that well sure some will deny others who look at it that's a start.
your hates and things you rail against do more psychological harm to you then those who you are defying, they don't know of you or your individual existence.

Ten ways GOP will try to delegitimize Obama's victory

I am not trying to measure the drapes for WH windows but the fat lady is quite ready to sing.
However, unlike many a media pundits, i don't think the Obama victory will change the GOP. They will never accept a democratic Presidential victory.
Below the fold, i list the top 10 reasons that will be uttered by GOP to delegitimize Obama's victory.
this list sounds very much like a right wing excuse for their assertions of a Romney victory were greatly exaggerated, ah hell outright lied about they are still holding their nose depriving their right wing heads of oxygen.
9. Socialist / Marxist / Facist / Kenyo-Colonial / Muslim
10. Saint Romney. 49 states / 525 EVs is the standard and Obama didn't meet it
Hence., Obama lacks a mandate and we will not co-operate
just to wet you whistle

Ignoring Troops in Harm's Way, Nikki Haley Declares Official State Day for Injured Football Player

South Carolina governor Nikki Haley has provided an ugly picture into the priority set that drives her governing mind. With a hurricane about to bring death and destruction along the east coast and thousands of South Carolinians fighting bravely for the military, Nikki Haley has decided that what the state really needs is an official day to celebrate the 21st birthday of a college running back and wish him well as he recovers from a knee injury.
Let's get one thing straight. South Carolina junior running back Marcus Lattimore is a good kid. He has always been known to have a good reputation and he's generally regarded among the best, hardest working football players in the country. Reports say that he does good things for the community. From all indications, he is a good role model.
His injury was sad. After working his way back from a torn ACL in 2011, Lattimore was having a good year. He was on track for a well-earned NFL career that would have provided his family with financial security. And his injury on Saturday was horrific. His leg bent a way it wasn't supposed to bend and cameras caught it going the wrong direction on the ground. It was painful and frankly it was sad to see him mother crying on the sidelines. Watching it live, I got emotional at the thought of such poor luck ripping financial security away from a guy who seems so deserving.
Still, Marcus Lattimore is a football player. He is a college athlete who played a game and got hurt. This is while 64 brave men and women from South Carolina were killed in Iraq. It's while many more are still blown to pieces by roadside bombs in Afghanistan. This is while Marine 2nd Lt. Andrew Kinard, a Naval Academy graduate from South Carolina, struggles to re-claim his life on two steel legs after stepping on a mine six weeks into his only deployment to Iraq. To put it into perspective - Lattimore's ligaments were torn; Kinard's ligaments were blown hundreds of feet away from his body.
what is it with the right they seem to have a misdirection of focus problem, but they say it's the Pres. who has a problem. 
that complete denial of their reality shows it's influence in it's base denying the treat to middle class and poor which includes them, Romney will be.  wouldn't care so much as it's their choice but when it affects millions who don't that is a detriment to our future.
Yet we choose, a few days before Veteran's Day, to officially proclaim October 29, 2012 as Marcus Lattimore Day in South Carolina. This is a disturbing look at the lack of perspective and the ugly priorities of governor Nikki Haley. It is also a reflection on our state and society at large, as we turn football players into heroes and soldiers into forgotten memories.
the right wing apathetic mindset on display, remember she supports women losing all their rights!

Gov. Christie: Obama deserves "great credit" for storm response

gracious of him but giving it where it's do is just the right thing to do, but still kudo's to him for keepin' it real.
Christie called the level of cooperation between the local, state and federal governments "excellent" and praised President Obama's involvement. "I was on the phone for the third time yesterday, last night, with the president of the United States. He called me at midnight last night as he was seeing reports," he said before adding that President Obama accelerated the designation of New Jersey as a major disaster area "without the usual red tape."
 my prayers and well wishes to those who have been affected by the storm.

Obama: White Supremacists Preparing for a 2nd Term?

(The Root) -- When retired Army Col. Lawrence Wilkerson denounced the Republican Party as "full of racists" in a recent interview, he ignited a firestorm. Though the comments were not the first time the Republican Party had been accused of being the chosen party for those harboring racist tendencies, it did mark one of the first times a high-profile Republican made such a stinging accusation.
Wilkerson made the remarks while defending his former boss and fellow Republican, former Secretary of State Colin Powell. Powell's endorsement of Democratic President Barack Obama led some Republicans, among them Romney campaign surrogate John Sununu, to speculate that Powell's presidential choice wasmotivated by race. While these developments led to fresh allegations that the Republican Party is the party of racists, there has been little coverage of the activity of actual, self-identified racists this election cycle, specifically those within the white supremacist movement.
i've asked before, are they arming their crazies not only with guns but legislation? standing your ground, carry permits, even in bars scary picture there. rezoning, disenfranchisement of the targeted demographics. all to invoke another civil war with the advantage to them this time? crazy but, it could happen.
In an interview with The Root, Mark Potok, one of the country's leading experts on hate groups, said that the day after President Obama was elected there were so many new people expressing interest in white supremacist groups that websites for some of those groups actually crashed. Among the groups mentioned by Potok, who serves as director of publications at the Southern Poverty Law Center, were Stormfront, a popular online message board for the white supremacist movement, and the Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC), which has been called "the white-collar Klan."
A White Supremacist Weighs In
Founded by Gordon Baum in 1985, the CCC is considered by many to be the ideological heir apparent to the White Citizens Council, a group that became notorious at the height of the civil rights movement for being the upper-class alternative to the Ku Klux Klan. Instead of burning crosses on lawns, the White Citizens Council employed tactics such as printing the names of NAACP members in newspapers, as well as paying the legal bills for Byron De La Beckwith, who assassinated NAACP worker Medgar Evers.
how many really want to be associated with this dated agenda that has no place in the 21 century, this is the base core of the right wing, vocalizing itself again

GOP's Benghazi Smoking Gun Goes Up in Smoke

When a set of State Department emails were released Wednesday, one reporting that a local Islamist militia had claimed responsibility for the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi that killed four Americans, including the US ambassador to Libya, conservatives thought they had the smoking gun that the Obama administration had lied about what had occurred.
Reuters reported Wednesday that on September 11—the day of the attack—a State Department email with the subject header "Ansar al-Sharia Claims Responsibility for Benghazi Attack" was sent to the White House. The message stated that "Embassy Tripoli reports the group claimed responsibility on Facebook and Twitter and has called for an attack on Embassy Tripoli." Case closed, conservatives said: The White House had engaged in a cover-up.
There's only one problem—well, actually, there are many, but one big one: The email appears to have been incorrect. Ansar al-Sharia in Benghazi, the group suspected of attacking the consulate, never claimed responsibility for the assault. In fact, according to Aaron Zelin, a fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy who monitors jihadist activity online, Ansar al-Sharia in Benghazi didn't post about the attack on its Facebook or Twitter page until September 12, the day after the attack.
Even if the State Department email had been accurate, conservatives pounced on it eagerly without underlying corroboration, thereby providing a pretty good example of how complicated intelligence analysis can be and why it's a bad idea to simply jump on a piece of information that fits your preconceived biases.
GOP really has a smokeless gun and the right wing jumped it, showing that whole party has a problem with keeping their mouths shut before and after they think they know something, they are not in the WH they don't consider ramifications of their "i got ya" tactics brings to mind another example of their duplicitous anti secret secret agenda Valarie Plame.,,  they want to talk about smoking guns?  bricks in a glass house danderous.
The email was just one piece of information gathered in the aftermath of the attack. While the White House's initial explanation that the attack had begun as a protest turned out to be wrong, the email itself doesn't bear on two of the major remaining questions: what role the video played and whether the attack was planned or spontaneous.
You'd think that this would be obvious, but in the future it's a good idea to remember that just because someone posts something on Facebook, that doesn't necessarily mean it's true. Even better: Just because someone said someone posted something on Facebook doesn't mean it's true. Even if you really, really want it to be.
teaching point to republicans "desperate leaps before can damage the jump result after"

Norm Coleman Assures Iowa Voters That Roe v. Wade Will Remain Law Of Land Under Romney

Romney won't repeal Roe, hmmm
In the frenetic push to win all-important Ohio, Mitt Romney’s campaign is saying a lot of things to a lot of people. And on Monday, a top Romney surrogate told a group of Jewish voters in the Buckeye State that the landmark Supreme Court decision granting women the right to an abortion is in no danger of being overturned should Romney become president.
“President Bush was president eight years, Roe v. Wade wasn’t reversed. He had two Supreme Court picks, Roe v. Wade wasn’t reversed,” former Sen. Norm Coleman (R-MN) told a Republican Jewish Coalition meeting in Beechwood, Ohio. “It’s not going to be reversed.” 
how pathetic a reason why his lie is true, Bush?
His point about Roe v. Wade — made in response to a question “regarding what he would say to voters who are worried about the influence of religious conservatives on the Republican Party,” according to Bowman — may come as news to Romney’s supporters in the anti-abortion community, who see him as their opportunity to finally overturn the decision they see as a travesty.
For his part, Romney has said overturning Roe is a personal goal.
“My view is that the Supreme Court should reverse Roe v. Wade and send back to the states the responsibility for deciding whether it’s is legal or not,” Romney said at a candidate forum hosted by Mike Huckabee last year. On his campaign website, Romney calls Roe v. Wade “a case of blatant judicial activism.” In September, Romney promised to appoint justices “that will follow the law and the Constitution” when asked about Roe.
more lies has he broke the record yet for more lies told by a candidate on the right? if so then does he win the coveted "out hated and lied everybody else" award?

Scott Brown Pulls Out Of Final Debate, Citing Hurricane Sandy

reminds me of McCain suspending his campaign to focus on economic crisis Brown same game with another name. 
these guys only care about what the can advantage from our disasters, oh and someone needs to tell Romney to take 5. 
"The focus for all of us before, during and after the storm needs to be on emergency response and disaster relief, not campaigns and politics."  Brown campaign.

 wonder what he really ran out of?

Obama, Romney Legal Teams Monitor Presidential Election

Romney people must be there for appearance all they claim to be guarding against so far has only been found in their front yard.
Obama, Romney Legal Teams – To prevent another Al Gore and George Bush fiasco, legal teams for Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama are monitoring the polls and votes. Either they know something we don’t, or they truly care about how voters do at the polls. It’s an important election that already has tens of thousands of lawyers watching it.
“They are all bracing for Florida in 2000 — everyone wants to be in position so as not to be disadvantaged by a court decision in a tie,” says Steve Schmidt, who ran John McCain’s 2008 campaign. “This [is] a preventive strategy. They are largely in search of problems that don’t yet exist. It’s like the Cold War and nuclear capability. You want to have what the other guy has.”
In Florida alone, a minimum of 5,000 lawyers are volunteering to work as poll watchers on Election Day for the Obama campaign. There will most likely be just as many for the Republican side.
the country of democracy has to check their political workers and politicians from cheating in a democratic alleged fair and honest election.
“The slightest discrepancy or hint that legitimate voting is being impeded anywhere will prompt an overwhelming legal show of force. Since the Gore-Bush recount, everyone is on very high alert.”
Obama spokesman Adam Fletcher said that the campaign “will continue to closely monitor developments between now and Election Day, but looking forward, we’re focused on making sure that every voter … is empowered to exercise their right to vote.”
one party looking for something to pin their hallucinations on the other just wants us all to exercise our right to vote without right wing interference, guess who.

Obama Camp Preps Counterattack For Romney’s False Jeep Ad

The dispute over the Jeep claim began last week when Romney said in a speech in Defiance, Ohio, that the company’s parent, Chrysler, “is thinking of moving all production to China.” This prompted ablunt response from Chrysler, which noted that not only was the claim false, but that the company was actuallyadding new jobs in Toledo as part of a $500 million investment in its factory there. 
The China report Romney cited, fromBloomberg, specifically referred to expanding Jeep operations within China that cater to the Asian market, not any kind of movement of resources from Ohio.
While Romney avoided follow-up questions on the issue, his campaign quietly went up with a new ad in the state that referenced the story in an only slightly less misleading way, saying that “Obama took GM and Chrysler into bankruptcy and sold Chrysler to Italians who are going to build jeeps in China.”
 aren't you tired of the deception and lies from Romney they took Ryan out of te main stream states because of his chronic lying, although i'm sure they have a scripted answer.  he is showing you the kind of person he would be which actually is better than those who would be his boss will tell him to do.
The ad, which also pushed back against the Obama campaign’s claim that Romney wouldn’t have rescued the auto industry, drew a savage response from the press.
UAW director Ken Lortz told reporters in the OFA call that Romney was using “using the Jeep workers in Toledo as pawns to falsely politicize this issue.”
he has been telegraphing his MO since the begining shame that some of us refuse to see what's in front of their presumably lying eye's.

Romney cherry-picking economic data

“After the stimulus was passed, the White House promised the economy would now be growing at 4.3 percent, over twice as fast.”
--Mitt Romney, Oct. 26, 2012
“New business starts are at a 30-year low because entrepreneurs and investors are sitting on the sidelines, weary from the President’s staggering new regulations and proposed massive tax increases.”
--Mitt Romney, Oct. 26, 2012
These lines from a major economic speech by the Republican presidential contender are interesting examples of how politicians selectively pick and choose data to make their case.
do you think it's ok to deceive by omission?  all fair in love and war of which politics is neither, think someone ought to pull Romneys coat.
In fact, the projection was a reduction from what the White House had predicted earlier in the year (4.6 percent). And 4.3 percent was not necessarily out of the line—the same page shows that the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office predicted growth of 4.1 percent.
The CBO and White House budget office are required to make such long-term projections because government budgets are set for 10 years. As the page also shows, the Blue Chip consensus of outside economists does not project that far ahead, as it is a bit of fool’s errand. Who can really predict with confidence what economic growth will be in two years?
is this the process Romney used to calculate his 5 trillion dollar, 20% 4 Pinocchio's?
