Campaign 2012

by: John Morgan

Wed Mar 14, 2012 at 10:43:25 AM EDT

The presidential race is down to three men.  Newt is gone after losing both Alabama and Mississippi.  If he can't win the South the native Pennsylvanian is toast.  Ron Paul never was a serious factor and remains running only because of his loyal, white supremacist supporters.

If Mitt Romney can't win the deep south he's in trouble as a Republican since its base is the backwards, impoverished South which relies of handouts from blue states for survival.

Mitt said yesterday "Planned Parenthood, we're gonna get rid of that."  One in five women will use Planned Parenthood services at some time in their lives.  Many men also receive health care services at our clinics.  What a great way to run for President:  alienate half the voters.  The DNC responded:

This MoveOn ad compiles a few of the worst anti-women statements said by GOP leaders:

Romney says he's to the right of Santorum on economic issues.  That's scary considering how extreme Rick is on every issue.  Of course every Republican voted for Bush's spending sprees.  That's how they increased the deficit to frightening levels.

The right wing lie that Obama wants higher gas prices is not supported by facts.  The claim has been given three pinocchios.

Health care reform is changing people's lives for the better.  Good government can be a powerful, positive force for people, something conservatives do not believe.

President Obama filed unfair trade charges against China for the exporting of rare earth minerals.  China holds many of the world's deposits of these technology driven resources.  From the White House:

Since I took office, we've brought trade cases against China at nearly twice the rate as the last administration, and these actions are making a difference.  For example, we halted an unfair surge in Chinese tires, which has helped put over 1,000 American workers back on the job.  But we haven't stopped there.

    Two weeks ago, I created a Trade Enforcement Unit to aggressively investigate any unfair trade practices taking place anywhere in the world.  And as they ramp up their efforts, our competitors should be on notice:  You will not get away with skirting the rules.  When we can, we will rally support from our allies.  And when it makes sense to act on our own, we will.

    I just signed a bill to help American companies that are facing unfair foreign competition.  These companies employ tens of thousands of Americans in nearly 40 states.  Because of subsidies from foreign governments, some of their foreign competitors are selling products at an artificially low price.  That needs to stop.

    This morning, we're taking an additional step forward.  We're bringing a new trade case against China -- and we're being joined by Japan and some of our European allies.  This case involves something called rare earth materials, which are used by American manufacturers to make high-tech products like advanced batteries that power everything from hybrid cars to cell phones.

    We want our companies building those products right here in America.  But to do that, American manufacturers need to have access to rare earth materials -- which China supplies.  Now, if China would simply let the market work on its own, we'd have no objections.  But their policies currently are preventing that from happening.  And they go against the very rules that China agreed to follow.

    Being able to manufacture advanced batteries and hybrid cars in America is too important for us to stand by and do nothing.  We've got to take control of our energy future, and we can't let that energy industry take root in some other country because they were allowed to break the rules.  So our administration will bring this case against China today, and we will keep working every single day to give American workers and American businesses a fair shot in the global economy.

    We're going to make sure that this isn't a country that's just known for what we consume.  America needs to get back to doing what it's always done best -- a country that builds and sells products all over the world that are stamped with the proud words:  "Made in America."  That's how we create good, middle-class jobs at home, and that's how we're going to create an economy that's built to last.

White supremacists? (0.00 / 0)
While considering Paul's followers egocentric a-holes afflicted with a collective neurosis, I was not aware of these cult-like jerks being white supremacists as well.
Can you elaborate further?
