Opinion: Obama Is Trying To Buy The Hispanic And Female Vote With Another Government Giveaway

Conveniently-timed for Obama’s reelection, the Hispanic and Women Farmers and Ranchers Claims Resolution program began September 24, 2012 – just a month-and-a-half before the election. Apparently the Obama administration did not care about this alleged injustice to females and Hispanics any time in the past three-and-a-half years. It just happened to be thought about and addressed now – just before voters pull the lever.

Opinion: Republicans Are Abandoning Romney’s Sinking Ship

Romney is dragging his own campaign and every Republican down. Republican operatives and House and Senate candidates have conceded as much throughout the month of September.

Opinion: Romney’s Friday Tax Document Dump Only Raises More Questions

If the GOP wants a candidate to “man up”, they should tell Mitt Romney to grow up and stop hiding his returns and stop disparaging working Americans for meeting their tax obligations while he dodges his.

Opinion: Harry Reid Needs To Apologize To Mitt Romney And America

It may be too late for Harry Reid to “save face”, but it’s not too late for him to “man up” and apologize to Mitt Romney – as well as the American public for his misinformation or lies – like any decent human being would.

Opinion: Presidential Poll Trolling

Though the polls give political junkies a rush – and can put them on a natural high for a time or sink them into the bowels of depression – they mean absolutely nothing on Election Day. The poll taken on Election Day at the nation’s polling booths is obviously the only one that counts.

Opinion: Romney Roots For Foreign Policy Crisis

Missed in all the controversy over Romney’s 47% don’t pay taxes remark is Romney’s callous and downright dangerous remarks that a crisis sparked by Iran would be good for his election prospects.

Opinion: Obama: I Actually Believe In Redistribution

President Barack Obama is in favor of the extremely controversial idea of redistribution of the nation’s wealth. Basically, Obama believes that everyone should “have a shot” at the good life and great opportunities in life whether they’ve worked for them or not – paid for by those who have acquired their wealth and success-related opportunities in life via hard work.

Opinion: Romney’s 47% Don’t Pay Taxes Remark Is 100% Controversy

Romney thought he was talking amongst his teammates in the locker room last May 17 only to find out that there was somebody on the other team hiding behind the lockers. Had he known a member of the other team was lurking back there, he would have chosen his words more carefully and had presented more carefully-chosen data than the data of which he swiftly generalized.

Opinion: Mitt Romney Disdains Half The Country He Wants To Be President Of

The idea that 47 percent of Americans don’t have “personal responsibility” or “care for their lives” is shockingly arrogant, even by Mitt Romney’s standards.

Opinion: Romney Talks Tough On China But Romney And Bain Bought Chinese Factory

Mitt Romney and Bain Capital purchased a factory in China that took on the demand from outsourcing from other US companies. So they profited by increasing profits from companies they owned by shipping jobs overseas and they profited from other companies shipping jobs overseas by doing the work that used to be done in cities and towns across America.

Opinion: Mitt Romney’s Terrible Week

Last week Romney had yet another gaffe and error filled week. Week after week Romney and his campaign can’t get it together.

Opinion: Are Regular Guys What America Will Ultimately Vote For?

President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are going for the “campy” image which screams “we’re just regular guys” on the 2012 campaign trail. America has never seen the final stretch of a presidential campaign like Obama and Biden are presenting this time around.
