Which hasn’t happened since President Nixon 2nd election in 1972.
Thank you President Nixon, and President Reagan for starting the race to the bottom.
Maybe after 30-40 years of declining middle class it is time to go back to economic system that isn’t voodoo economics.
When I listened to In Wis. Swing County, Voters Criticize ‘Handouts’ I am just amazed.
And some how they think voting for Romney is going to make thing better not worse. How in the world do they get there? Why are the not looking at the facts? Romney’s plan only puts more burden on these people so those at the top can have less tax burden.
First Rep. Todd Akin says that, “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”
Now former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee told the Los Angeles Times, “‘Ethel Waters, for example, was the result of a forcible rape,’ Huckabee said of the late American gospel singer. One-time presidential candidate Huckabee added: ‘I used to work for James Robison back in the 1970s, he leads a large Christian organization. He, himself, was the result of a forcible rape. And so I know it happens, and yet even from those horrible, horrible tragedies of rape, which are inexcusable and indefensible, life has come and sometimes, you know, those people are able to do extraordinary things.’”
Politico reporter Dave Catanese took to Twitter to defend comments made by Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.) about rape.
“Poor phrasing, but if you watch the intv @ToddAkin meant to convey that there’s less chance of getting pregnant if raped,”he said.
Akin told KTVI on Sunday that victims of “legimitate rape” don’t usually get pregnant because women’s bodies have “ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” He later said he “misspoke” but did not disavow the claims.
Catanese tweeted that Akin’s comments, while poorly phrased, were worth discussing.
“So perhaps some can agree that all rapes that are reported are not actually rapes? Or are we gonna really deny that for PC sake?” he said. “So looks like he meant to say — ‘If a woman was REALLY raped, it’s statistically less likely for her to get pregnant.’ What’s the science?”
Or how to lose an election you were wining. Nate Silver explained his quick drop in the polls. At least this mean we will have Senator Claire McCaskill for another 6 years, yay!
And I am sorry Senator Scott Brown the only reason you are calling for Akin to step down is because he is insuring a Democrat majority for at least another 2 years.
“Imagine that Republicans blew up the Golden Gate Bridge on their way out of power, then complain that Obama hasn’t rebuilt it yet while THEY are blocking the road that carry the building materials and construction workers to the work site… AND they have the balls to complain about how much the reconstruction costs…” ~ Jan Chase
“Paul Ryan’s love of Rage Against the Machine is amusing, because he is the embodiment of the machine that our music has been raging against for two decades. Charles Manson loved the Beatles but didn’t understand them. Governor Chris Christie loves Bruce Springsteen but doesn’t understand him. And Paul Ryan is clueless about his favorite band, Rage Against the Machine.
Don’t mistake me, I clearly see that Ryan has a whole lotta “rage” in him: A rage against women, a rage against immigrants, a rage against workers, a rage against gays, a rage against the poor, a rage against the environment. Basically the only thing he’s not raging against is the privileged elite he’s groveling in front of for campaign contributions.”
