Obama Hits Romney
To show how careful one has to be when speaking to the press, especially if one is a candidate for higher office, all that has to be done is look at Mitt Romney and the myriad of gaffes he has made since he started running for president in 2007. Yes folks, you read that right, he has been running for president for 5 years. First, I draw your attention to some news today, President Obama’s re-election committee brought up Romney’s Swiss and other off-shore bank accounts. My questions:
- If you are going to be a candidate for the highest office in the land, why would you have any money in a Swiss held bank account?
- If you have money in a Swiss bank account, would it not make sense to close that account and bring all monies back here to the United States?
So, a conclusion that can be drawn from this follows: American banks are not good enough for this presidential candidate. Read more about this story here.
What do you think, does the GOP have a problem with women? If you ask Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, there is no such thing. Apparently, he has a very short-term memory problem and forgets the recent bills calling for trans-vaginal ultrasounds to be done prior to a woman having an abortion.
Or, maybe he forgot about the rule calling for all employers to offer free contraceptive coverage to women on their health plans.
Or, maybe he forgot about the Ledbetter Act which tries to make wages of women equal to those of their male counterparts.
Hate is Alive and Well
For those of you think that homophobia and gay-bashing is occurring less and less, tell that to these four freshmen from Colorado State University. This is why it is important to stand up to bullies and make a statement to our leaders. This is why the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Act is so important.
