|Tricky Dick And Lying Mitt|
While Romney's 13% tax rate is probably legal, most Americans paying double that rate in taxes might consider Mitt Romney a tax welfare queen, or a tax cheat.
Mitt Romney rented the Mormon churches tax exempt status to lower his own taxes according to this new Bloomberg story by Jesse Drucker.

Mitt Romney last week:
“I saw a story today that one of the great manufacturers in this state, Jeep, now owned by the Italians, is thinking of moving all production to China,”Chrysler has made clear that they have "no intention of shifting production of its Jeep models out of North America to China."
Gaulberto Ranieri, a senior vice president for Chrysler
“Despite clear and accurate reporting, the take has given birth to a number of stories making readers believe that Chrysler plans to shift all Jeep production to China from North America, and therefore idle assembly lines and U.S. workforce. It is a leap that would be difficult even for professional circus acrobats. A careful and unbiased reading of the Bloomberg take would have saved unnecessary fantasies and extravagant comments.”Let Detroit Go Bankrupt by Mitt Romney

Joan Walsh replying to Rep. Cathy McMorris Rogers (R-Wa) claim that the Democrats were "fabricating" the republican war on women to distract from "real issues":
“Democrats didn’t make the GOP presidential field back “personhood” laws that would criminalize some forms of birth control. They didn’t force the newly elected House GOP to make defunding Planned Parenthood their first legislative goal. And they didn’t propose the Blunt Amendment that would have allowed employers to withhold health insurance coverage not only for contraception, but for any treatment they disapproved of…”Proof of the Republican War on Women, including anti-abortion legislation, abstinence-only education, war on birth control/contraception, and of course the war on Girl Scouts. Republicans are insistence upon legislating their personal religious beliefs on the rest of America. Ignoring America's history of separation between church and state, republicans continue to practice the golden rule, they have the gold, so they make the rules.

- Restore the global gag rule to ban funding for overseas organizations that so much as mention abortion as an option or advocate for legalized abortion in their home countries.

“I know what it’s like to pull the Republican lever for the first time, because I used to be a Democrat myself, and I can tell you it only hurts for a minute and then it feels just great.”If you want to discuss degrading talk about women, listen to old republican men; Todd Akin (R-Mo), Paul Ryan (R-Wi) Richard Mourdock (R) and Steve King (IA-R), but not unless you want to lose your lunch. My 20 year old niece gives this video a funny thumbs up and that's good enough for me.

I’m very proud of my pro-life record, and I’ve always adopted the idea that—the position that—the method of conception doesn't change the definition of life.
The method of acquisition doesn't change the definition of wealth?
The method of voter suppression doesn't change the definition of winning?
Paul Ryan is an ideologue, placing nonsensical ideas ahead of people. Like Richard Mourdock, who said, "I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen." Paul Ryan is another clueless male republican ready willing and able to wrest control of women's bodies from their rightful owners.

Dawn Laguens, executive vice president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund:
"Richard Mourdock's remarks about rape are reprehensible and especially outrageous coming from a major party candidate for the U.S. Senate. This isn’t just about what politicians like Richard Mourdock, Todd Akin, Steve King and Joe Walsh say — it's about the policies they would enact in partnership with a Romney/Ryan Administration. These are the very politicians that Mitt Romney has promised to put in charge of a woman’s personal health care decisions. "Mitt Romney and Richard Mourdock share an allegiance to the Republican Party platform, which would ban safe and legal abortion without any exceptions, give full constitutional rights to fertilized eggs, and repeal the birth control benefit. "Richard Mourdock is the only Senate candidate in the country with a TV ad starring Mitt Romney. It's not enough for the Romney campaign to issue a tepid statement 'disagreeing' with Richard Mourdock's appalling remarks. Mitt Romney must immediately rescind his endorsement of Murdock and demand that Murdock take down the campaign ads featuring him."By fully supporting Richard Mourdock, Mitt Romney throws his full support behind the republican war on women. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) released this statement in support of Mr. Mourdock.
“ ...but sharing the view of millions of Americans that life begins at conception is Richard’s deeply held personal belief that shouldn’t be misconstrued by partisans to imply something it does not,”What Mitch, Romney/Ryan and the rest of the radical republicans don't understand is that its wrong to impose your personal beliefs on other Americans. Until the republicans stop writing laws imposing their personal beliefs on the rest of America the republican war on women will continue unabated.
