Oh yeah- and one more thing.... the "bailout" that everyone loves to hate.... why did we need that again? Oh yeah.... because the LAST REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT gutted regulatory oversight of folks like Romney and his friends on Wall St. When they were left to their own devices, enough wasn' enough for them... they went and almost burned the whole thing down, just to get one more bonus. The fat cats and banks are salivating at the idea of a Romney presidency, b/c they know it will mean they can go back to business as usual. Obama isn't perfect, but I don't want my kids to wait in bread lines for their evening meals, either. Ah- but wait.... none of that is important, b/c the democrats are baby killers.... oops. forgot. KNow what? If Romney and the GOP win, ther American citizenry will get everything it deserves.
Graceful and Gus are both misinformed, or they have buried their head in the sand because they want someone else to do their thinking for them. The AP has long been an established source for objective journalism. Further, if you look at Obama's policy decisions, they are mostly moderated, towards the center. He kept several policies of "W" on the books after being elected and getting briefs from military and intelligence leaders. He continued the bailout that a REPUBLICAN president and Sec. of Treasury started. He continued policies that helped to preserve the auto industy in America. You need to stop and think - when Obama makes a tough call and tics off the left b/c he didn't lean far enough their way, and angers the right b/c he didn't totaly capitulate (a republican's idea of compromise is "do it my way"), he's probably doing something right! I don't agree with every decision he's made, and time will tell if health reform works in our favor. FOX, CNN, MSNBC, Drudge, or Graceful and Gus- none of these folks know if it's a good thing or not at this point in time. If they do- ask them how they know. I have friends that work at the Congresional Budget Office as policy analysists and economists, and THEY can't say for sure - so HOW in the @#$# do you know?!? I forgot- you people are master's level policy analysists, not florists, truck drivers, or salespeople, etc. Talk about being a numbskull- if you think that a guy who is worth millions of dollars is going to give a tinker's dang about you and I, and is going to enact policies that make our lives better instead of making it easier for his fat, rich, white, bigoted friends to get even richer- you live in a parallel universe. Romney will do no better at getting the economy growing faster. The median household salary in MO is $44,000.00 as of 2011. Under republican leadership, the have's will get more, and the rest of you rubes who vote them in will get bent over your kitchen counter.
Give me a freakin' break. This guy will stay in the race, because he's too narcicistic to withdraw. He beleives God wants him to be a senator. Must be convenient to use the Almighty's name like a sticker to paper over all the stupid, hurtfull things one does without having to pay a penalty for them. 30 days from now, nobody will be talking about this. he's hurt himself, but let's face it. the nutjobs that were going to vote for this guy will still vote for him, and the folks who have already decided to vote for McCaskill simply have one more reason to do so. This doesn't change the dynamic, it just makes it more expense for Akin since the RNC has dropped their support of him... "Todd who?" Like it or not- another old white guy who is out of touch with mainstream America and wants to go back to the 50's will probably be elected to represent "the people". Hey Todd: women ARE part of your constituency. Aww- who am I kidding- he's only after votes from OTHER rich, old white guys.
Obama is no more a socialist than any of you are Genghis Kahn. The man is a raging moderate. The right likes to paint him as a fringe lunatic, because he doesn't look like Mitch McConnel or John McCain. Those guys are just going around peeing their pants that a minority is in the White House, and they can't call him "boy". 21st century folks... get on board. The left is disappointed in him b/c they don't think he goes far enough. You know what it means wihen you go to DC and make EVERYONE unhappy? It means you probably have a few thoughtful positions, and take a pragmatic approach. he's not the anti-christ, he isn't the muslim boogey-man, he's just a guy you disagree with because you let Fox News do your thinking for you. Do some real checking for yourself, and you'll find that while you probably won't agree with everything he's done, he's no radical, nor is he a socialist. He continued many of the same programs that Bush did. The bailout was a GOP plan, as was Gitmo, and other policies. While he said he would change alot of that stuff before being elected, he chose not to after getting into office. To me, that's the mark of a man who is willing to change his mind when presented with reason to. Doesn't sound like any radical I know.
