Mitt Romney Lies #21 – ‘He (Obama) had a Democrat house and a Democrat Senate but he didn’t do it. Isn’t it time for the American people to ask him, Why?”

Now THIS is leadership.

Mitt Romney DEMANDING an answer from President Obama!

THAT should make Republicans Proud!

‘Mitt Romney criticized the Supreme Court’s ruling on Arizona’s immigration law at a fundraiser in Scottsdale Monday afternoon, according to a pool report’.

“Now, you probably heard today there was a Supreme Court decision relating to immigration, and given the failure of the immigration policy in this country,” said Romney, “I would have preferred to see the Supreme Court give more latitude to the states, not less. And there are states now under this decision have less authority, less latitude to enforce immigration laws.”

“And it’s really, it’s become a muddle,” he said. “But it didn’t have to be this way. The President promised in his campaign that in the first year he would take on immigration and solve our immigration challenges, put in place a long term program to care for those who want to come here legally to deal with illegal immigration, to deal with securing our borders.”

‘He then earned applause by declaring, “All these things he was going to in his first year, he had a Democrat house and a Democrat Senate but he didn’t do it. Isn’t it time for the American people to ask him, Why?”

What’s that Mitt?

It’s Obama’s fault?

Right.

‘President Obama mocks Romney on ‘outsourcing’ vs. ‘offshoring’ in NH campaign speech’

‘Obama last week, after a report from The Washington Post claimed that Romney’s former firm Bain Capital invested in companies that specialize in outsourcing jobs, slammed Romney as “an outsourcing pioneer.”

‘Romney’s campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul in response criticized the “flawed” report by charging it did not differentiate between “domestic outsourcing versus offshoring,” which is what Obama mocked in his speech’.

“That’s what they said. You cannot make this stuff up,” Obama said’.

“What Gov. Romney’s advisers don’t seem to understand is this: If you’re a worker whose job went overseas, you don’t need somebody explaining to you the difference between outsourcing and offshoring. You need somebody who’s going to wake up every day and fight for American jobs and investment here in the United States. That’s what you need. That’s why I’m running.”

Mitt Romney won’t (for now) answer questions. SO it is up to everybody to keep asking.
The silence of NO answers will speak for themselves.

GetRealWithDarylandDeVon@.Wordpress.Com

Shitt Romney needs to be hooked up to the nearest sanitation plant, regardless of where he speaks throughout this great land. If we want to continue outsourcing business, instead of building business at home, then this guy is the clear choice. This private-equity, business destroying prick, who has more plastic in his face than his wife’s steely dan, has the nerve to claim he is a job creator. Hey Shitt!!=Concerning whether people believe your lies=”No Static At All”?????-Doubt It!!!!!!

A ‘Conservative’ vision for America – The Romney Presidency

 

‘according to Romney deputy press secretary Ryan Williams’.

That means Romney approved.

YES! THIS should make ALL Republicans so very PROUD!

THIS is how they will govern.

Taunting those who don’t agree with them.

‘BOSTON — For the second time in as many weeks, Mitt Romney’s campaign taunted President Barack Obama outside a speech’.

‘Romney’s campaign bus circled Obama’s fundraiser at Boston Symphony Hall Monday night several times, according to Romney deputy press secretary Ryan Williams and verified by several onlookers who said it was honking its horn as it passed’.

‘Republicans support Obama’s health reforms — as long as his name isn’t on them’

‘The new Reuters-Ipsos poll finds that Obamacare remains deeply unpopular; 56 percent of Americans oppose the law, versus only 44 percent who favor it’.

‘What’s particularly interesting about this poll is that solid majorities of Republicans favor most of the law’s main provisions, too’.

‘I asked Ipsos to send over a partisan breakdown of the data. Key points’:

* ‘Eighty percent of Republicans favor “creating an insurance pool where small businesses and uninsured have access to insurance exchanges to take advantage of large group pricing benefits.”

* ‘Fifty-seven percent of Republicans support “providing subsidies on a sliding scale to aid individuals and families who cannot afford health insurance.” .

* ‘Fifty-four percent of Republicans favor “requiring companies with more than 50 employees to provide insurance for their employers.”

* ‘Fifty two percent of Republicans favor “allowing children to stay on parents insurance until age 26.”

* ‘Seventy eight percent of Republicans support “banning insurance companies from denying coverage for pre-existing conditions’.

* ’86 percent of Republicans favor “banning insurance companies from cancelling policies because a person becomes ill.”

The Supreme Court and Health Care – ‘How would you describe a democracy where power was being shifted that way’?

** ‘You can try this at home. Pick a country and describe a sequence in which’:

•’First, the presidential election is decided by five people, who don’t even try to explain their choice in normal legal terms’.

•’Then the beneficiary of that decision appoints the next two members of the court, who present themselves for consideration as restrained, humble figures who care only about law rather than ideology’.

•’Once on the bench, for life, those two actively second-guess and re-do existing law, to advance the interests of the party that appointed them’.

•’Meanwhile their party’s representatives in the Senate abuse procedural rules to an extent never previously seen to block legislation — and appointments, especially to the courts’.

•’And, when a major piece of legislation gets through, the party’s majority on the Supreme Court prepares to negate it — even though the details of the plan were originally Republican proposals and even though the party’s presidential nominee endorsed these concepts only a few years ago’.

‘Poll: Legal scholars think the mandate is valid, will fall anyway’

‘Bloomberg surveyed 21 top constitutional scholars and found that, while 19 think the individual mandate of the Affordable Care Act ought to be upheld on the basis of legal precedent, just eight think the Supreme Court will actually do so’:

“The precedent makes this a very easy case,” said Christina Whitman, a University of Michigan law professor. “But the oral argument indicated that the more conservative justices are striving to find a way to strike down the mandate.”

In replacing slowly or not at all, the Republicans don’t have to bother with ‘credibility’.
All they have to do is keep the fear of ‘government control’ in the minds of a minority and with the apathy that prevails in this Country?
The ‘tail wags the dog’.

Mashed Potato Bulletin

As the eve of the Affordable Care Act’s fate fast approaches, both sides of the partisan divide eagerly wait upon baited breath to pounce on whichever decision is laid down. Republicans have vowed to settle for nothing short of complete elimination since the law’s inception. The Supreme Court may do what GOP has been unable to do on their own. Whatever direction the Court takes, the Reform’s opponents promise to “repeal quickly and replace slowly” but with what is unclear.

‘States’ rights, no; corporate rights, yes’

‘The corporate conservative majority on the Supreme Court was at it again on Monday. By its customary 5 to 4 vote, the court threw out a Montana law that had been on the books since 1912, banning corporate spending on elections. Naturally, the court’s conservatives believe their judgment in the Citizens United case is so much more refined and intelligent than the judgment of the good people of Montana’.

‘Will everyone please finally admit that conservatives actually don’t care a whit about states’ rights unless invoking states’ rights happens to be helpful to the conservative agenda’?

‘Recall that the Supreme Court had absolutely no qualms about telling the state of Florida in 2000 that there was no way it could recount its votes in a fashion that would be satisfactory, and never mind that the Florida Supreme Court had ruled in favor of recounts’.

‘Justice Stephen Breyer’s brief but in-their-face dissent’.

“Given the history and political landscape in Montana,” Breyer wrote, “concluded that the state had a compelling interest in limiting independent expenditures by corporations. Thus, Montana’s experience, like considerable experience elsewhere since the Court’s decision in Citizens United, casts grave doubt on the Court’s supposition that independent expenditures do not corrupt or appear to do so.”

‘It was a Supreme Court nominee named John Roberts who said during his confirmation hearings that the court should be wary of overturning precedent and should pay attention to factors “like settled expectations, like the legitimacy of the court, like whether a particular precedent is workable or not, whether a precedent has been eroded by subsequent developments.”

‘Montana had “settled expectations” that the state’s “workable” 1912 system of campaign finance law would remain on the books. It’s a shame that the current Chief Justice Roberts has so little in common with the John Roberts who testified before the Senate’.

‘Corporations are not people’ but the Supreme has ruled their money is.
That becomes the ‘law of the land’.
And ‘we the people’ can’t vote on who becomes a Supreme Court Justice.

CORPORATIONS ARE NOT PEOPLE

The Supreme Court, lining up in the same sharply divided 5-4 position as in Citizens United, summarily reversed the Montana Supreme Court in ATP v. Bullock, striking down a 100-year old state restriction on corporate spending in Montana elections.

Montana says it’s not over, though. It’s time for a Constitutional amendment to overrule the Court, as at least six previous Amendments have done. Here’s Governor Brian Schweitzer (a Democrat) and Lt. Governor John Bohlinger (a Republican):

Here is the response of Montana Senator Max Baucus, who calls the decision an “outrage.” Sen. Baucus explains the need for a Constitutional amendment to reverse the Court:

And here is a statement from Free Speech for People:

STATEMENT OF JOHN BONIFAZ
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, FREE SPEECH FOR PEOPLE

on the US SUPREME COURT’S DECISION STRIKING DOWN
MONTANA’S CORRUPT PRACTICES ACT

‘With Gas Prices Expected To Drop Below $3, Republicans Suddenly Silent On Obama’s Role’

‘Mitt Romney, March 18, 2012: “He gets full credit or blame for what’s happened in this economy, and what’s happened to gasoline prices under his watch, and what’s happened to our schools, and what’s happened to our military forces. All these things are his responsibility while he’s president.”
