Mitt Romney – ‘Desperado’ – ‘Obama hurting women more then Republicans’

What’s kind of disturbing is Romney and most Republicans almost sound ‘happy’ when they say that.

I love that song though : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0BwOXlGbW6Q

Anyway. ‘Marvelous’ Mitt is now running around saying ‘”92.3 percent of all the jobs lost during the Obama years have been lost by women.”

And I REALLY love statistics because you can prove ANYTHING using the same statistics.

‘THE FACTS’:

‘Romney’s claim is based on statistics showing the number of unemployed women grew by 858,000 since January 2009, Obama’s inauguration month. But it ignores the disproportionate hit on men the year before Obama became president – and their greater job losses overall’.

‘The deep recession that began 13 months before Republican George W. Bush left the White House hit men harder than women at the beginning. Recessions often do that because male-dominated enterprises such as construction and manufacturing tend to be the first to tumble in a downturn. Eventually, sectors with more women in the workforce follow suit, and that happened mostly after Obama took office’.

‘Some 3.4 million men and 1.8 million women have lost jobs since the recession started, according to the government’.

‘We reached out to Gary Steinberg, spokesman for the BLS, for his take on the claim’.

“Between January 2009 and March 2012 men lost 57,000 jobs, while women lost 683,000 jobs’.

‘This is the reverse of the recession period of December 2007-June 2009 (with an overlap of six months) which saw men lose 5,355,000 jobs and women lose 2,124,000 jobs,” Steinberg told us in an email’.

‘So timing was important. And if you count all those jobs lost beginning in 2007, women account for just 39.7 percent of the total’.

Republican Rep. Allen West says many congressional Democrats are Communists

Is THIS the Republican Party?

Straight out of Newt’s 1996 GOPAC memo – ‘Language: A Key Mechanism of Control’ – http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article4443.htm.

Are the Republicans wanting to take us back to the ‘good old days’ of McCarthyism? The ‘Red Scare’?

http://www.essortment.com/red-scare-mccarthyism-21546.html

Continuing on from the 2010 Midterm elections, do Republicans really want to seperate us into who are ‘real’ Americans and who aren’t?

Where are the Republican voices denouncing Rep. Allen West for calling Democrats ‘commununists?

‘“I believe there is about 78 to 81 members of the Democratic Party that are members of the Communist Party.”

Remember Sarah Palin? Last general Elections Republican Vice President? She thinks Romney should pick Rep. Allen West as his ‘rogue’ choice for Vice President.

After all according to former HALF TERM Governor Palin, ‘He is a public servant willing to serve for the right reasons’.
From : http://www.thegrio.com/politics/palin-says-rep-allen-west-is-at-the-top.php

I guess the ‘right reasons’ are unlike yours and resigning half way through your term, a term you took an OATH to serve. But I guess making money was more important to you then your public Oath. 

 

 

teabagger accountability – Sarah Palin’s PAC

There is a marked difference between how I view someone who is or follows the principles of the Tea Party and teabaggers.

Sarah Palin is a teabagger.

Follow the money teabaggers.  .  .  .  . for some ‘real’ honesty, reliability, accountability and trust.

‘Sarah PAC’s website says it is “dedicated to building America’s future by supporting fresh ideas and candidates who share our vision for reform and innovation.”

‘Sarah Palin’s political action committee raised $388,000 in the first three months of the year, but it spent $418,000 and didn’t give a dime to any candidates’.

‘Instead, Sarah PAC spent $255,000 on fundraising and a small team of political consultants that Palin has continued to support even as she receded from the political spotlight during the heat of the GOP presidential primary. It also appears to have spent $19,000 on a video rebutting the HBO film “Game Change.”

‘The PAC also paid $4,500 to reserve space at Channelside Bay Mall in Tampa, Fla., near the site of the Republican National Convention, suggesting that Palin plans to have an independent presence at the event separate from the formal proceedings’.

‘God Has Now Lost to Mitt Romney’

The actual title of the article is :

Every Candidate Endorsed by God Has Now Lost to Mitt Romney
By Dan Amira

‘But Santorum’s withdrawal is also a major milestone for God, the beloved all-powerful deity whose personal endorsement somehow failed to secure the nomination for any of the numerous Republicans — Santorum, Herman Cain, Michele Bachmann, and Rick Perry — whom he reportedly encouraged to run for president. It is unclear at this point whether God will even bother to offer anyone his apparently useless endorsement in the general election’.
