The Character of Mitt Romney – “”Circumstances do not make a man, they reveal him.” – Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

 
‘Limbaugh ignited a political firestorm Wednesday when he suggested Fluke’s support of contraception coverage was an attempt to force Americans to pay for her sexual activities’.
“It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex,” Limbaugh said.

‘Mitt Romney steered clear of the Rush Limbaugh controversy until Friday evening, even avoiding a CNN reporter earlier in the day, when he addressed the issue after an event in Cleveland’.
“I’ll just say this which is it’s not the language I would have used,” Romney said.

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer : “Let me ask you this question, people have raised this question, if Mitt Romney can be pushed around, intimidated, coerced, coopted by a conservative radio talk show host in Middle America, then how is he going to stand up to the Chinese:”?

“I don’t consider myself birther or not birther, but there are some major questions here that the press doesn’t want to cover,” Trump later added. “Now, if that were somebody else they’d be covering it and they’d be throwing people out of office, but they don’t want to cover it.”

‘Trump’s comments came in the wake of an apology from Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett — the co-chairman of Romney’s campaign in the state — for breathing new life into birther conspiracy theories when he requested verification from the state of Hawaii that Obama had, in fact, been born there’.

‘Hawaii provided the necessary documents, and Bennett backed down on claims that it was “possible” that Obama wouldn’t make the ballot in Arizona’.

‘Romney has been consistent in welcoming Trump’s endorsement, even if he does not support everything the real estate mogul and reality-TV star says’.

“I don’t agree with all the people who support me, and my guess is they don’t all agree with everything I believe in,” Romney said Monday. “But I need to get 50.1% or more and I’m appreciative to have the help of a lot of good people.”

A ‘Conservative’ vision for America – Mitt Romney leading by example – The Low Road

On a local level, small minded, disruptive, juvenile things happen. Kicking over yard signs, spray painting over signs.

Most is just a sign on individual inmaturaty. Not representatvie of the campaign.

The campaigns themselves attempt to the high road, address issues, maintain and promote a diginified course.

And then there’s Mitt Romney :

“At some point you say, you know what, sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. If they’re going to be heckling us, why we’re not going to sit back and play by very different rules,” he said’.

No Mitt Romney, you wouldn’t want to play by different rules. Like taking the high road. Leading by example.

Easier to be a bully isn’t it?

‘One boy, in particular, caught Romney’s attention — a shy, new kid at the school named John Lauber who had bleached blond bangs that dipped across one eye. According to those interviewed, young Mitt was bugged by Lauber’s hair. “He can’t look like that,” Romney reportedly told one of his friends. “That’s wrong. Just look at him!”

A ‘Conservative’ vision for America – “I will not give you emergency contraceptives because it goes against my beliefs,”

 

‘the doctor allegedly told the rape victim and her mother, Rhonda’.

Remember the ‘death panels’ that Sarah Palin screamed about int the AHCA? The ‘death panels’ that didn’t exsist?

Conservatives in many States HAVE created ‘conscience clause’ laws alowing Dr’s, Nurses,Pharmacists to follow the will of their conscience rather then the health need of the patient.

“She knew my daughter had just been raped. Her attitude was so judgmental and I felt that she was just judging my daughter,” Rhonda told the news station.

‘Emergency contraception’s effectiveness diminishes over time, and is most effective when taken immediately’.

‘Oklahoma law, however, shields providers from offering the perfectly legal medication under a “conscience clause” which could significantly hinder women’s access to contraception services. States across the nation have adopted similar restrictions’.

‘GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney has pledged to expand Bush-era rules permitting doctors to place their beliefs ahead of women’s health’.

‘Fortunately, the young woman in Oklahoma ended up going to another hospital, where she received the medication she needed and the rape kit’.

It isn’t just about contraception and some would extend that ‘conscience clause’ to employers :

‘Blunt, under fire for ‘rights of conscience’ amendment, claims ‘misinformation”

“It puts politics between women and their health care,” contended U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash. She heads the Senate Democrats’ campaign committee, which launched a “One Million Strong for Women” petition drive contending that Blunt’s amendment is “a radical piece of legislation that would cannibalize health-care reform by letting any employer deny any part of your heath care coverage due to ‘moral convictions.'”

A ‘Conservation’ vision for America – ‘Honeywell CEO Says The Corporate Tax Rate Should Be Zero’

This is not rocket science.

Corporations get a pass on paying taxes because they are the one’s creating jobs?

And everyone else gets to pay for the roads they use? The Police and Court system they use? The Fire Departments and public education system they use? The………..Country they use? Until it’s more profitable to out source overseas?

‘During an interview today, Honeywell CEO David Cote — who President Obama named to the Bowles-Simpson deficit commission — told CNBC’s Andrew Ross Sorkin that he believes the U.S. corporate tax rate should be zero. Cote added that the only reason his desired rate won’t happen is because “from a fairness perspective, nobody would be able to stand it”:
SORKIN: ‘David, I have a tax question for you. What do you think the ultimate effective tax rate should be on corporations’?

COTE: ‘Zero’.

SORKIN: ‘Zero’?

COTE: ‘The problem is from a fairness perspective, nobody would be able to stand it. But at the the end of the day, jobs come from companies and if we wanted to create the most effective foreign direct investment pipeline you’ve ever seen, we would have the lowest rate possible’.

‘Cote made $37 million in total compensation in 2011, while spending the last few years busting unions and driving down pay and benefits for his company’s workers’.
