8 years of mismanagement of the US economy requires 8 years of fixing. The people criticizing Obama for not fixing the economy in 4 years need to stop drinking the Kool-aid and use their common sense. When Obama took office, we were losing 600,000 jobs a MONTH! When Obama took office, banks were going BANKRUPT. When Obama took office, we were spending BILLIONS on a war in IRAQ. When Obama took office, Wall Street was losing BILLIONS of dollars. When Obama took office, the value of our houses were under the prices we BOUGHT them. When Obama took office, BIN LADEN was still threatening the US with MORE terrorism. And when OBAMA took office, the American CAR industry was going BANKRUPT.
What did Obama achieve in 4 years?
We are NO LONGER LOSING 600,000 jobs, but NOW we have growth in JOB CREATION bringing the UNEMPLOYMENT f
rom 10 percent to 8 percent. He added FOUR MILLION JOBS during the 4 years which is a HUGE CHANGE from the 600,000 jobs we were LOSING in 2008.
The Banks are PROFITABLE under his presidency. The AMERICAN CAR industry was SAVED by OBAMA , although ROMNEY said LET THE AMERICAN CAR INDUSTRY GO BANKRUPT.
Obama ended the WAR IN IRAQ, AND KILLED OSAMA BIN LADEN. The Housing Market is going back to the way it was because of the OBAMA's presidency. And finally, the HEALTH INSURANCE COMPANIES CAN NO LONGER REFUSE YOU INSURANCE FOR PRE-EXISTING CONDITION.
And this is only in 4 YEARS. AS I SAID, 8 YEARS OF DAMAGE REQUIRES 8 YEARS OF FIXING.
ROMNEY THE JOB "CREATOR" WHO SAYS:
Let Detroit Go Bankrupt

Paul Ryan says RAPE IS ANOTHER FORM OF CONCEPTION!!!

Romney on “Women's Rights And Choices Based On Religious Conscience”
In the thick of the race to seek the Republican presidential race nomination, the GOP stands accused of engaging in a "war on women," something the GOP loudly protests at every turn.
But as Shaw Kenawe points out, the GOP's "determination to make a legal medical procedure more and more difficult for women, and for the presumptive nominee, Willard [Mitt] Romney, to say that one of the first things he would do as president is withdraw all government funding from Planned Parenthood, an organization that serves the health needs of poor women who are under insured or who have no insurance at all."
Jennifer Epstein (Politico.com) reminds us of Romney's public position on women's rights. " Romney's statement that he would 'get rid' of Planned Parenthood and his support for a congressional measure to give any employer the chance to opt out of covering any health expense for "moral reasons."
Marie Diamond also shared insights about Romney's ambiguity on choice issues, "Although he claimed, 'I would like to see the Supreme Court return this right to the states,' he has recently pledged to push for federal abortion restrictions … Romney said he would expand a Bush-era rule that allows doctors to deny women access to contraceptives."
Igor Volsky wrote an article (2011) about Romney's intentions if he became president. "In the final days of the Bush administration, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) adopted a "conscience rule" permitting federally funded health care providers to opt out of health care services they found objectionable." President Obama reversed the rule that, "could allow practitioners to deny women access to commonly used methods of birth control like 'oral contraceptives, emergency contraception, and the IUD.'"
Mitt Romney has pledged to restore and strengthen the conscience protection. "We have to allow people to practice their faith and when they have a matter of conscience that they can't participate in some form of activity which violates their faith, then they should be able to abide by their faith, particularly when there are plenty of opportunities for people to have a service provided."

Chrysler is NOT moving Jeep production from Ohio to China despite claims by Mitt Romney's presidential campaign, the auto company said......
During a campaign rally in Defiance, Ohio, on Thursday, Romney accused the Detroit-based automaker, one of the recipients of the Obama administration's $80-billion bailout of the U.S. auto industry, of planning to shift production of its Jeep brand of cars overseas.
But the auto company said in a blog post on its website that the reports were based on bad information because the cars built in China were going to be sold to Chinese customers.

Mitt Romney said "Let Detroit go bankrupt" He didn't lift a hand to help our families then! It was a loan we paid back...NOT a handout. Remember...not too long ago...things were REALLY BAD,and many of our friends and family were being laid off. Thanks to the FAILED Bush Policies... that Mitt Romney & right wing Republicans want to go back to!.......
I am a Republican who is voting in the BEST interest of my family. As far as Barrack Obama...whatever faults he has, they are nothing compared to those of his opponent. Obama has been intellectually honest with the public, respectful of his critics, willing to listen to people of opposing views. He has led the nation into a steadily stronger economy.

Mitt Romney said at the first debate, that he had a "plan" for health care that included pre-existing conditions and the next day his campaign said that was NOT correct. So, GOOD LUCK in finding an insurance company who accepts pre-existing conditions! This applies to EVERYONE...not just seniors!.... Not even the over 55 seniors are safe if Medicare is slowly starved of funding as Republicans plan to do.....
VOTE…in your families BEST interest…We all know what it has been like for our families and friends, since 2008, when wall street recklessness and the banks crashed the economy. We just cannot go BACK to the FAILED Bush Policies that almost send us into a Depression!
Bottom line? Bush’s foreign policy was a disastrous as was his domestic policy, and Romney wants to follow both of Bush’s paths, both proven to be abysmal failures.
