Mitt Romney: People Don't 'Die In Their Apartment Because They Don't Have Insurance'

Mitt Romney: People Don't 'Die In Their Apartment Because They Don't Have Insurance'

Commented Oct 11, 2012 at 12:37:18 in Business

“Fifteen years ago my downstairs neighbor died in his apartment because he did not have health insurance. After a car accident he was taken to the hospital and then discharged prematurely with a prescription for pain pills. He died of an accidental overdose within 12 hours. I have no doubt that if he had had insurance he would not have been discharged, and would not have died for lack of adequate care.

Mitt Romney is (willfully) not in touch with reality.”

“It boggles the mind that someone thought $55,000 was better spent on Sarah Palin's makeup than on organizing and getting out the vote.

Has there ever been a more incompetent campaign?”

Fremon on Nov 6, 2008 at 10:58:28

“John Kennedy (one of my favorites) appointed an ambassador who was a friend from his navy days. The man later tried to run for a governership of an eastern state and lost. He was rewarded by being appointed as CEO to a company I was working for. He was a disaster who oversaw the downward spiral and eventual sale of the company. Ambassadors are not always qualified save having made money in their company or field/ or being a crony and which may not carry over to being qualified in any other area. Let me know what successes Condi Rice has had? We know she couldn't do the job at National Security when she was roughed over by Cheney/Rumsfeld and also said "no one could know anyone could run planes into buildings" even though she had a classified memo about Al Quaida (sic) determination to do so. Her "success" with a North Korea agreement was the one implemented during the Clinton administration and initially put on the shelf by the Bush administration.”

Palin: First Amendment Rights Threatened By Criticism

Commented Oct 31, 2008 at 22:28:50 in Politics

“In three words: Un. Be. Lievable.

Sarah Palin simply does not understand the plain sense of the First Amendment.

Can you imagine her swearing to "uphold and protect" the Constitution?

When will decent, intelligent Republicans take their party back from the faction of Know-Nothings who have hijacked the GOP?”

TLV on Oct 31, 2008 at 23:04:22

“She'd whip out her own version of the Constitution and her supporters would cheer. On it would be a list of punitive measures against them just for breathing and they'd just roll over and take it. Republicans have no will or backbone after the last eight years and Sarah Palin knows it. She smells the blood of the weak-minded.”

“I agree.

A faction has seized control of the Republican Party and led it away from true conservative principles.

There is nothing conservative about running up record deficits ("Deficits don't matter").

There is nothing conservative about abandoning 232 years of tradition by abusing and torturing enemy combatants and prisoners of war.

There is nothing conservative about suspending habeas corpus, a bedrock principle of Western law since the Magna Carta.

There is nothing conservative about starting wars of aggression.

There is nothing conservative about the fantasy that we could remake Iraqi society all at once, from the top down.

In many ways Obama is more faithful to true conservative principles than the faction that has seized control of the Republican Party--including John McCain.

Both liberals AND conservatives should unite behind Obama.”

Ignoble Hillary

“Jsarbee2--

Thank you.

I have supported and defended the Clintons since 1992.

But the last few months have been one disappointment after another--every time I think she has hit rock bottom, another trap door opens up to reveal unsuspected depths of shamelessness and mendacity.

She lost me for good when she said the Michigan primaries were fair.

So sad....”

“Oafishcad--

You are criticizing Obama for an argument he did not make.

He does not "blame the economic mess" on the occupation of Iraq.

He says the occupation has led to higher oil prices and skyrocketing debt. This is true.

I agree that the basic problem is Republican fiscal policies. But Obama HAS criticized those in speeches and on his website.

You don't have to like Obama. But don't criticize him for things he didn't say.”

Obama and the Greatest Salve of All: Truth

Commented Mar 18, 2008 at 16:43:38 in Politics

“I agree.

It took guts for Obama to talk about the difficult complexities of race in America.

It took real intelligence to do it simply and clearly, without oversimplifying or avoiding reality.

I think the best thing about this speech has so far gone unremarked--that he tried to show people what it is like to look a painful and difficult question from a number of perspectives:

To see that black anger is grounded in real experiences of discrimination and humiliation, but that it is myopic and defeatist to regard racial prejudice as permanent and unchangeable.

To see that white resentment at quotas and crude forms of social engineering are understandable, but that this resentment has been used to distract citizens from the actual policies that have led to 30+ years of growing economic inequality in the US.

It is depressing to read some of the responses to the speech. I'm not talking about whether people agree with it or not, I'm talking about the ability of people (for or against Obama) to recognize and do justice to what he is trying to do.

But much of the response does give me hope--that Americans are tired of the infantile partisanship and poll-tested propaganda that dumbs down our political discourse to the point that it is nearly impossible to discuss the real problems we face through intelligent and reasoned deliberation.

Thanks for your post.”

“I have supported and defended the Clintons since 1992, but Hillary is quickly exhausting my reserves of good will.

The worst was her statement that the Michigan primary was "fair" and should be honored.

An election is not fair if your opponent's name not on the ballot.

This is just indefensible.”
