From the 47% to ‘gifts’: Mitt Romney’s ugly vision of politics – The Washington Post

During the campaign, Mitt Romney repeatedly promised seniors that he’d restore President Obama’s $716 billion in Medicare cuts. He promised them that, unlike Obama, he wouldn’t permit a single change to Medicare or Social Security for 10 years. He promised them, in other words, political immunity. While the rest of the country was trying to pay down the deficit and prioritize spending, they’d be safe. (More)

In His Own Words: A Native American Mormon Speaks His Truth

It is time for minority voices to be heard especially when the possibility of a new Mormon president can happen.

Romney bought $5k of food for people to “donate” back to him at phony “hurricane” rally

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.) (More)

Republicans Filibuster Everything, Romney Blames Obama for Not Working With Congress – Huffington Post

The Romney campaign released a shockingly Orwellian commercial over the weekend, which perpetuates something Romney himself has been saying for months now. Honestly, there’s a book-length analysis to be written here, but I’ll keep it as brief as possible given the depth and breadth of what the Republicans have been able to accomplish on this front.

Debate 3 “Our” President Barack Obama vs Mitt Romney Now That Is The Math That I Am Talking About

“Our” President put it down last night during the debate. Again Romney not answering the questions. That is the norm for him though. But “they” want to protect him saying that was intentionally that he did not want to engage too much in the conversations and that would make “Our” current President look bad. Oh hell no!

I say “Our” current President won all three debates along with Vice President Joe Biden whipping up on that Ryan dude. But I can’t change the fact that “the all” say Romney won debate 1. 

Can’t wait to see how “they” twist what happened last night.

Face The Nation – Does Not Matter That Romney Has No Plan

Damn the lady just asked this dude on Face the Nation about Romney’s Plan and he said what President Obama is doing. She said not true but I asked you what Romney’s plan is and he said I am going to get to that and again he said President Obama is doing. She said that is the problem the Governor is running around the country without a plan.

I have said it and I will say it again, “The plan is to get in office and just undo everything "Our" President has done.”

Now that is the math that they believe in.

Can’t Wait To See How They Attempt To Twist This What President Barack Obama Said On September 14, 2012 In The Rose Garden About The Benghazi Attack

EXCUSE ME!! BUT DOES "ACT OF TERROR" STRIKE EVEN THE SMALLEST CHANCE OF SOUNDING LIKE "SPONTANEOUS REACTION"?? GET OVER THE B.S ALREADY! TERROR, TERRORISM, TERRORISTS, ITS ALL COMPONENTS OF THE SAME WORD. THIS WORDSMITHING B.S. IS WORTHLESS!!!

THE RIGHT WING CAN SPIN THE PRESIDENT’S STATEMENTS ON BENGHAZI, LIBYA ALL THEY WANT!!!

Romney used these exact words to prose his question!! "You said in the Rose Garden the day after the attack it was an act of terror? The president took 14 days before he called the attack in Benghazi an act of terror!"

Romney got caught simple and plain!!! He trapped himself by lying and thinking he had a zinger!!

The President also stated in his September 14, 2012 Stump speech in Golden, Colorado, 5 days after his Rose Garden press conference on the attacks that the Benghazi attack was an act of terror, promising the crowd that "those who were responsible for the deaths of four Americans in Libya, including the U.S. Ambassador, will be brought to justice, I want people around the world to hear me, that would do us harm, that No act of terror will go unpunished!!" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLPfGXJo1d4 He never said anything about this being a spontaneous reaction to a video, PERIOD!!

It didn’t matter whether the President used terror or terrorism in his remarks, they are the same in a sentence, PERIOD!!

IT’S THE SAME DAMN DEFINITION, GET OVER IT!!

FACTS ARE FACTS, and press conferences are actual events, not made up conspiracy theories, like the right wing extremists certainly manufactures!!!

Why is that President Obama’s factual statement on Libya, that "it was an attack of terror", in the Rose Garden can be debated by the right wing nutso extremists as something he didn’t mean to say, (but actually said), yet Romney’s outright blatant lies and 47% comments at that private donor meeting according to those whining about Romney getting walloped on Libya, are misstatements that can simply be explained away, on what he actually did say?? So hypocritical!!! These buffoons NEED A LIFE!! Too much of their time is spent on manufacturing falsehoods, lies, fables, witch hunts, etc., against the President that don’t ever stick or turn out to be true.

President Obama Discusses the Attack in Benghazi, Libya http://m.whitehouse.gov/blog/2012/09/12/president-obama-discusses-attack-benghazi-libya

TRANSCRIPT OF PRESS CONFERENCE BY PRESIDENT OBAMA ON BENGHAZI, LIBYA

Remarks by the President on the Deaths of U.S. Embassy Staff in Libya, September 12, 2012 http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2012/09/12/remarks-president-deaths-us-embassy-staff-libya

Rose Garden

10:43 A.M. EDT

THE PRESIDENT: Good morning. Every day, all across the world, American diplomats and civilians work tirelessly to advance the interests and values of our nation. Often, they are away from their families. Sometimes, they brave great danger.

Yesterday, four of these extraordinary Americans were killed in an attack on our diplomatic post in Benghazi. Among those killed was our Ambassador, Chris Stevens, as well as Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith. We are still notifying the families of the others who were killed. And today, the American people stand united in holding the families of the four Americans in our thoughts and in our prayers.

The United States condemns in the strongest terms this outrageous and shocking attack. We’re working with the government of Libya to secure our diplomats. I’ve also directed my administration to increase our security at diplomatic posts around the world. And make no mistake, we will work with the Libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people.

Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. But there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None. The world must stand together to unequivocally reject these brutal acts.

Already, many Libyans have joined us in doing so, and this attack will not break the bonds between the United States and Libya. Libyan security personnel fought back against the attackers alongside Americans. Libyans helped some of our diplomats find safety, and they carried Ambassador Stevens’s body to the hospital, where we tragically learned that he had died.

It’s especially tragic that Chris Stevens died in Benghazi because it is a city that he helped to save. At the height of the Libyan revolution, Chris led our diplomatic post in Benghazi. With characteristic skill, courage, and resolve, he built partnerships with Libyan revolutionaries, and helped them as they planned to build a new Libya. When the Qaddafi regime came to an end, Chris was there to serve as our ambassador to the new Libya, and he worked tirelessly to support this young democracy, and I think both Secretary Clinton and I relied deeply on his knowledge of the situation on the ground there. He was a role model to all who worked with him and to the young diplomats who aspire to walk in his footsteps.

Along with his colleagues, Chris died in a country that is still striving to emerge from the recent experience of war. Today, the loss of these four Americans is fresh, but our memories of them linger on. I have no doubt that their legacy will live on through the work that they did far from our shores and in the hearts of those who love them back home.

Of course, yesterday was already a painful day for our nation as we marked the solemn memory of the 9/11 attacks. We mourned with the families who were lost on that day. I visited the graves of troops who made the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq and Afghanistan at the hallowed grounds of Arlington Cemetery, and had the opportunity to say thank you and visit some of our wounded warriors at Walter Reed. And then last night, we learned the news of this attack in Benghazi.

As Americans, let us never, ever forget that our freedom is only sustained because there are people who are willing to fight for it, to stand up for it, and in some cases, lay down their lives for it. Our country is only as strong as the character of our people and the service of those both civilian and military who represent us around the globe.

No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. Today we mourn four more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done.

But we also know that the lives these Americans led stand in stark contrast to those of their attackers. These four Americans stood up for freedom and human dignity. They should give every American great pride in the country that they served, and the hope that our flag represents to people around the globe who also yearn to live in freedom and with dignity.

We grieve with their families, but let us carry on their memory, and let us continue their work of seeking a stronger America and a better world for all of our children.

Thank you. May God bless the memory of those we lost and may God bless the United States of America.

Tribune Endorsement: Too Many Mitts – The Salt Lake Tribune

Nowhere has Mitt Romney’s pursuit of the presidency been more warmly welcomed or closely followed than here in Utah.
