    Isn't being a stay at home mom work?
    If being a stay at home mom counts as work for Ann Romney - shouldn't it also count as work for lower income women?

    Is this indicative of Mitt Romney advocating that there should be one rule for rich spoiled women and another harsh rule for lower income women when it comes to being a stay at home mom - or is old Mitt just FLIP-FLOPPING and saying ANYTHING to try to get his lame lying ass elected?

    What is President Obama proposing to do if he is granted a second term, besides "tax the rich?"

    Mitt is an out of touch guy who's never done an honest day's work in his life.

    Why would we assume his wife would be any better?

    Southbeach - do you have any comment ON THE TOPIC?

    Do you approve of Mitt's double standard?
    Do you approve of Mitt's flip-flopping?

    Please try to focus - AND STAY ON TOPIC.

    If Mitt is anything like George, he will crash the economy and make all women stay at home mom's.

    Yup.
    He would.
    But if we make sure to get ourselves to the polls - and to VOTE - he won't get the chance.

    It makes me mad to see the Dems cower in fear on issues where the public is already on their side.
    Case in point: Mitt's wife claiming to be a "stay at home mom" is not comparable to middle or working class women in the same situation. If you have millions of dollars, countless servants and you're jetting between your multiple mansions around the country, and driving around in multiple Cadillacs, you don't get to be passing judgement on working people who are trying to make ends meet. It's offensive to see Mitt constantly dumping on people who actually work for a living.
    Mitt has been part of the privileged class since the day he was born.
    Mitt and his wife have enough leisure time to be hiring lobbyists for their $12 million beach house (another in their vast collection of who-knows how many mansions) and building elevators for their cars. This is not the kind of
    "lifestyle" that regular Americans can relate to -- and have little patience for.
    It is sickening to see this pampered and filthy rich couple -- who never had to work real jobs -- criticizing regular working Americans who are struggling to get by.

    And it's sickening to see Fix "News" and the rest of the right-wing propaganda machine pushing this dishonest bullshit.

    They've taken Hilary Rosen's comment about Ann Romney and twisted it and distorted it and are trying to say that Hilary Rosen attacked stay at home moms - when she did nothing of the kind.
    She attacked Ann Romney - and Ann Romney is in no way representative of stay at home moms.

    The right-wing propaganda machine will say ANYTHING to try to bullshit folks into voting Repub.
    And this is just the latest example of that.

    What's really disgusting is to see the arrogance and belligerence of the Romneys as they've claimed that their lives are as difficult and strained as the lives of most middle and lower income Americans.

    If the Romneys really believe that - then they're out of touch with reality.

    If they don't really believe it - and they understand how spoiled and fortunate they are - then they should show some humility and not be claiming that their lives are hard - when they actually lives lives of self indulgent luxury.

    Mitt is not fit, in the Oval Office, to sit.

    EXACTLY! We can't think that it's a "slam dunk" election.

    Remember Broward County in the 2000 election! Never forget!
    537 questionable votes and the Supreme Court gave the election to Bush and look at the catastrophic global financial crisis that failed presidency caused the world!

    At least Herbert Hoover can now rest easily in his grave knowing that he's not the worst U.S. President in history. But at what price?

    Get out and vote!

    Not so long ago we Americans were hit by repeated statements from Ms Palin and her Baggers complaining about Obama being 'different from average Americans', 'not one of us', 'one of the elite', and he received an education 'regular people cannot afford' and ETC 'ad nauseum'. Yet with all these supposed Palin and her Baggers evidence, we didn't hear anywhere close to the out of touch statements from Obama, that are totally typical and so much a part of the Romney's daily reality, a reality that is nowhere close to average Americans. Hense this Elite Romney Family's total cluelessness as to how to come off as sensitive to what the common man faces. Romneys have absolutely no Idea how out of touch they are, because 'normal' American family life has never touched their reality.

    Obama can show sensitivety effortlessly because 'normal' has touched his reality. Now these Hypocritical Palin Baggers have their 'elitist' man in hand as their man they choose to run the country to replace the 'elitist' Obama, What in hell are these damn christian fundi's thinking? "THEY DON'T KNOW SHIT FROM APPLE BUTTER" to use a southern slang and its damn disgusting to even think about this voting block's utter stupidity


    When I was a child in the 50's and early sixties, my mother stayed home to take care of her 3 boys. while dad worked at 'Kawneer Door Company', She did all our laundry, including the cloth diapers (there were no such thing as throw away diapers). Mom baked, cooked, canned dozens and dozens of bottles, of peaches, pears, tomatoes, mixed vegetables and tomato juice as well as grape juice and etc. All to save money and so we were able to eat healthfully. If she got together with other women they trading recipes and canning, cooking and baking secrets.

    Does anyone really think that Romney's wife has any idea of what a work at home mother goes through, who does her best to reduce costs to make ends meet because it is a necessity ? There's not a thing wrong with a woman working like this at home, it is noble. What isn't noble is the Romney's hypocrisy and total cluelessness in trying to come off as something they aren't, which is anywhere close to a normal average American family who struggles to make ends meet. They would be far better off to just keep their mouths shut, than to embarass themselves as they do when trying to be something they just simply are not.

    Yes, this election is also about the SCOTUS. Right now, 4 left, 4 right and Anthony Kennedy who can go either way.

    Romney signed the anti-gay pledge, specifically stating he would nominate only anti-gay justices. And he also will push to write a Prop 8 style marriage ban into the Constitution...making same sex marriage illegal in all 50 states.

    Which is one of the reasons why I'm surprised that the Repub majority on the SCOTUS elected to take up and render a verdict on Obamacare BEFORE the election.

    If the Repub majority on the court deliver a 5-4 verdict against Obamacare - it will remind voters that the court is currently a highly political body dominated by Repubs.
    And it will make real the threat posed by a President Willard stacking the SCOTUS with several more Repub justices.

    It also doesn't make political sense for the Repubs to resolve the constitutionality of Obamacare before the election.

    If the SCOTUS declares Obamacare constitutional - it takes away the Repub's ability to try to attack Obamacare as unconstitutional.

    If the SCOTUS declares Obamacare unconstitutional - the Repubs can't campaign on the idea that it's necessary to vote for Willard in order to get rid of Obamacare.
    The SCOTUS will have already gotten rid of it.

    Yes, I'm surprised too. Especially considering how Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas hang out with the Koch brothers, and various far right influence peddlers. What a mockery of justice.

    Yup.
    And no doubt that's why the Repubs on the SCOTUS chose to take up the Obamacare challenge before the election.

    The Repub justices were undoubtedly urged to do so by the Kochs and the other Repub power elites who they're chummy with.

    But they really didn't think through whether or not it would really help the Repub party strategically - or not.

    Power elites like Koch can pretty much set the agenda for the SCOTUS. And here is why: Unlike lower courts, SCOTUS justices are judges of their own ethical conduct....something they exploit, and do so without limit. If Koch wants a case heard, he gets his way.

    The degree of ethics from Republican nominated justices is at an all time low. Shocking...but if Scalia, Alito and Thomas had to follow ethic rules set for lower courts....they'd all be locked up in JAIL.

    Few cases in point: Thomas' wife Virginia has been paid out large sums of money from various right-wing groups supported by Koch and others. Thomas also used private jets and yachts from Harlan Crow, and a private jet provided for Antonin Scalia by another right wing group.

    Rightwingers own the Supreme Court, and Thomas, Scalia and Alito are their water boys. This video is a bit long, but shows what we're up against.
