Romney Right About Obama´s
Gifts To Special Groups

Election Postmortem: Some in the GOP have taken to trashing 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney for recent comments he made about his loss.(Snip) Using the divide-and-conquer tactics of Saul Alinsky, Obama successfully exploited age, income, class, race and ethnic divisions to the detriment of Republicans, while smearing Romney as an uncaring, rapacious Wall Street capitalist who murdered a steel worker´s wife. But sure, GOP, pile on Romney, who also remarked that Obama was "very generous" to African Americans, Hispanics and young voters. So why does this offend? It´s so obviously true it shouldn´t need defending.

Common sense from IBD.

Why else vote for Obama after the last 4 years? Romney ran a darned good campaign…great adds, great debate performances, great running mate, great message, and he worked his heart out. But besides trillions in “gifts” for votes to select groups, he was constantly pummeled with negative media coverage including conservative commentators (...anyone but Romney…not connecting…too vague…too much detail…and on and on every day) not to mention those clowns he had to deal with during the primary and then Gov Christy’s ridiculous performance. He couldn’t win. And what a loss for our country.

Romney told the truth. We can´t continue down the path of fiscal and monetary insanity. Democrats promised more goodies. They´re free, the rich will pay.

Mitt was of the old guard. But now the people have learned that they may vote themselves into the possession of free goodies. And so America enters into a third chapter in her history: The age of the free lunch, paid for by the alchemists at the Federal Reserve.

Romney was one hundred per cent correct. Too bad some in this party are okay with throwing Romney under the bus. Yes, Obama bought votes, what part of that do Jindal, Gingrich, Santorum , etc. not get.

Patriot Mantra for days ahead:
Putting Family First and ‘First Family’ last

- Judi McLeod Monday, November 19, 2012

Upsetting Barack Obama’s little red wagon, impeding America’s race toward the abyss depends on seeing clearly through Obama’s masterful Marxist use of perception.

The Obama Regime successfully creates the public perception that its power is absolute; that the recent election awarded them majority rule; that there is no way on earth to stop Obama from making good on what he has said he is going to do.

Even with all the lies, astroturfing and sheer bravado perfecting perception, shattering its myth is possible because for all of its boasts, perception is 1% reality and 99% abstract.

Now that he’s got his second term, the perception works to keep American citizens in a Saul Alinsky-designed depression because so many of them have already fallen for the spin that America has been captured; that the entire American citizenry are now trapped like flies in a bottle which Obama has tightly capped.

Everyone positing that America is dead and that Americans are finished are doing precisely what Obama wants: spreading a message of hopelessness and despair.

#1 is right. If only the GOP had united in message and gone out there after Romney´s conference call and dared any media twit to disagree. (I didn´t think leaking Mitt´s call was a good move but he WAS right about the gifts.). Our side will not get anywhere until our candidate can teach, explain conservative principles with clarity.

The GOP´s been throwing Palin out and now Romney. I´m almost done with supporting "GOpigs at the trough" - RINO´s.

To Gov´s Christy, Jindal, Rep. Gingrich,and the rest of the vocal junkies of the Nattering-Nabob class,

From a quasi-quote of a really bad liberal today, Lee Iaccoca, "Lead, Follow, or Shut-up" and Regan´s Commandment:" Thou shall not speak against a fellow REPUBLICAN!!!"

Are we looking forward to 2014 or dreading the chance to get the truth out and win?

The time is NOW for the Tea Party to rise, put up candidates for the Senate in 2014 then put up candidates for both Houses and the Presidency in 2016.

The time to start is now but based on the whining and crying going on I have no faith that enough Patriots will rise to the occasion.

Oh yes, people get fired up but then they don´t show up to where they should be.

It is almost like the phrase I once heard. The reason people don´t make money is because they are too busy making a living. That also speaks to why we don´t have a positive government.

He offered the opportunity to maybe come off the welfare "handout" line and get a job and improve your life. Simple concept at work here. If you tell someone that you are going to give them things that will enable them to do nothing and have a HUD home, a food credit card and can walk into any emergency room in the U S for a cold, and get care...what would you do? You would vote for the giver of the gifts. About half of the population wants more than the minimum given by t
he giver. They want to work up the ladder not set at the bottom looking up screaming at those going up accusing them of being rich. I have a home, food, a car and a job (for now). Those receivers of the gift say that makes me rich. No, I am not rich...I am one of the millions who work hard everyday so the great giver can take my money and throw it down the ladder to bribe those who refuse to climb, to accept crumbs, and vote so the great giver can keep them in crumbs. It is not about the aging, or children with handicap needs who no one minds working to help. It is about the 16 to 45 year olds who have babies to get more money, walk around with their gel nails, cell phones and attitudes who would rather take crumbs than get off their you know what and show up to work. Romney was not wrong in anting to help people come up...the problem?...people have to want to improve their lives...those that don´t, voted for the giver of the crumbs..

Amen #10. As Rush said it is hard to win an election when you are running against Santa Claus, and this past election, if nothing else, proves that point!

NEW YORK - Last week´s Heartbleed Internet bug revealed a startling fact. The software protecting banks, email, social media and government is maintained by only a few people. They´re all volunteers. And only one does it as a full-time job. Their labor of love is OpenSSL, a free program that secures a lot of online communication. And it was a tiny coding slip-up two years ago that caused the Heartbleed bug, a hole that allows attackers to peer into computers. The bug forced emergency changes last week at major websites like Facebook (FB, Fortune 500), Google (GOOG, Fortune 500) and Yahoo (YHOO,

People who have accounts on the enrollment website for President Barack Obama´s signature health care law are being told to change their passwords following an administration-wide review of the government´s vulnerability to the confounding Heartbleed Internet security flaw. Senior administration officials said there is no indication that the HealthCare.gov site has been compromised and the action is being taken out of an abundance of caution. The government´s Heartbleed review is ongoing, the officials said, and users of other websites may also be told to change their passwords in the coming days, including those with accounts on the popular

NASHPORT, Ohio – A couple who held hands at breakfast every morning even after 70 years of marriage have died 15 hours apart. Helen Felumlee, of Nashport, died at 92 on April 12. Her husband, 91-year-old Kenneth Felumlee, died the next morning. The couple´s eight children say the two had been inseparable since meeting as teenagers, once sharing the bottom of a bunk bed on a ferry rather than sleeping one night apart(Snip)They remained deeply in love until the very end, even eating breakfast together while holding hands, said their daughter, Linda Cody.

JACKSON, Wyo. – A slow-motion disaster continued unfolding in the Wyoming resort town of Jackson on Saturday, as a creeping landslide that split a hillside home threatened to swallow up more houses and businesses. The ground beneath the 100-foot hillside had been slowly giving way for almost two weeks before the downward movement accelerated in recent days. With rocks and dirt tumbling down, officials suspended efforts to shore up the slope and said they were uncertain what else could be done. "When is it going to go? How long is it going to last? These are the questions we just

AUSTIN — Documents related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency, Travis County officials say. It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection with its look into tollway agency operations. The Travis County district attorney’s office said last month that details from its review of a 2012 complaint that a rival filed about Davis’ legal and political activities were “the subject of an open investigation” by the

Jindo, South Korea -- A passenger describes women screaming in the darkness. A father learns his child is trapped. A son, fearing death, tells his mother he loves her. Investigators haven´t said what caused a South Korean ferry boat carrying hundreds of passengers to capsize on Wednesday. But as rescuers searched frigid waters for nearly 300 missing people, text messages purporting to be from missing passengers surfaced, describing the harrowing moments after the ferry started to roll.(Snip) On Thursday, the semi-official Yonhap News Agency reported that police now believe the messages supposedly sent after the ferry sank were fake.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our
