Mitt Romney: Newt Gingrich Is An 'Extraordinarily Unreliable Leader In The Conservative World'

“Romney's $10,000 Bet

A mistake but I don't think that it will prove fatal or even long lasting.

Mitt Romney is the GOP's best bet. Yes, he is not terribly warm and fuzzy, and appears a bit awkward at times. But I doubt that he would walk the beach in wing tips.

“LAWRENCE O'DONNELL - HERMAN CAIN

I'm a fan of Lawrence O'Donnell, but I think that last night he was way off on some of the questions he asked Herman Cain, contender for the GOP presidential nomination.

He started with questions regarding Cain's lack of participation in the civil rights movement in the 60s. He was critical of Cain for not leaving college to protest or march. Well, if all African-American left high school or college to descend on Athens, Georgia, that poor town would sink into the ground.

Then Mr. O'Donnell questioned Cain about "avoiding" service in the Viet Nam war. Mr. Cain responded that he had an essential job with the Navy Dept. and a favorable draft number. O'Donnell then pressed on, suggesting that Cain should have volunteered. Volunteer to go to the war in Viet Nam? Really?

“So if you can't beat...cheat. This is a sad testimony of our political system.”

TechYes on Sep 20, 2011 at 09:22:10

“You might appreciate this observation from the Brennan Center's report, "The Truth about Voter Fraud":

"Royal Masset, the former political director for the Republican Party of Texas, concisely tied all of these strands together in a 2007 Houston Chronicle article concerning a highly
controversial battle over photo identification legislation in Texas. Masset connected the inflated furor over voter fraud to photo identification laws and their expected impact on legitimate voters:

"Among Republicans it is an “article of religious faith that voter fraud is causing us to lose elections,” Masset said. He doesn’t agree with that, but does believe that requiring photo IDs could cause enough of a dropoff in legitimate Democratic voting to add 3 percent to the Republican vote."”

Daniel Zook on Sep 20, 2011 at 08:36:50

“It is the same exact thing. The ID laws are the only way they can legally swing votes by limiting the votes of minorities or illegal immigrants because they tend to vote dem. Less votes means greater chance of winning and the people who primarily have no problem showing their ID's who Actually vote, tend to just want to keep things the way they are so they re-elect the same person.”

Rick Perry's HPV Vaccine Law Sparks Political Fight That Ignores Health Issues

Commented Sep 14, 2011 at 06:25:55 in Politics

“At debate:
"Most significantly, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) went hard after Perry for his 2007 attempt to mandate vaccinations of sixth-grade girls against the human papillomavirus, the most common sexually transmitted disease and a lead cause of cervical cancer. "

But there were no complaints against the Texas law forcing women to undergo, prior to an abortion, an unwanted, unnecessary medical procedure, a sonogram. Unlike the vaccinations, there is no beneficial health effect here.

“Graphic Warnings on Cigarette Packs

The photographs of rotting teeth and gums, diseased lungs, and smoke seeping from the throat of a man with a tracheotomy are part of a nine-picture package just released by the Food and Drug Administration.

These horrifying images remind me of giant images of dead fetuses that anti=abortion groups display on large trucks that they bring to political events.

“A federal appeals court will be deciding a case attacking the new health care reform law. A major issue is whether the government can require citizens to purchase health care insurance.

Meanwhile, Texas Gov. Rick Perry is expected to sign a law soon requiring a woman seeking an abortion to have a sonogram.

Insurance purchases may well be justified as they are needed to make the health care system work. But can it possibly be lawful to make a woman undergo a medical procedure that is unwanted and unneeded?
