The title of a Reuters article released on October 24, 2012 is “Obama offers (just) A GLIMPSE OF his second-term priorities” (Web-site/URL: http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/10/24/us-usa-campaign-idUSBRE89M11220121024).
“President Barack Obama PREDICTED passage of immigration reform and a deficit reduction DEAL, offering a fresh GLIMPSE of his second-term agenda as he FIGHTS FOR VOTES in the final stretch of the tight race for the White House”. This EXPECTATION from the President is clearly UNREALISTIC. A REPUBLICAN Congress (House) certainly WON’T pass any more laws, especially when REPUBLICANS EXPECT Obama to be unseated on November 6 2012 (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).
“In a newspaper interview released on Wednesday (October 24, 2012) ahead of an eight-state campaign BLITZ that began in Iowa, Obama also suggested Republicans were BOLSTERING his re-election effort by alienating Hispanics ahead of the November 6 (2012) vote”. “blitz” suggests that Mr. Obama knows IT’S CRUNCH TIME NOW. There is clearly a sense of URGENCY in the Obama camp now.
“In an interview with the Des Moines Register, Obama said: “Since THIS IS OFF THE RECORD (?), I will just be very blunt. SHOULD I win a second term, a BIG reason I will win a second term is because the Republican nominee and the Republican Party HAVE SO ALIENATED the fastest-growing demographic group in the country, the Latino community”. There are TWO things to note here. First what’s “off the record?” If we think back to the incident of KATE MIDDLETON TAKING OFF HER BIKINI TOP, NOT MUCH. On top of this, JAN BREWER and RUSSELL PEARCE are architects of this hate by coming up with a law that says anyone in Arizona who LOOKS LIKE a MEXICAN will be FORCIBLY THROWN OUT OF THE UNITED STATES.
“Obama’s campaign moved quickly to link Romney with Mourdock, who said in a debate with Democrat Joe Donnelly on Tuesday (October 23, 2012) that pregnancy caused by rape is “something God INTENDED to happen“. Again, this is DISGRACEFUL because “God” would NEVER “intend…rape to happen”.
According to Obama campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki, “Obama believed the comment was “OUTRAGEOUS and DEMEANING to women” obviously…”adding that she was PERPLEXED (that) Romney would not DEMAND an ad he filmed in support of Mourdock be taken off the air”. Well, “demand” would make this situation TEN TIMES WORSE because “demanding”, of course, is a fundamental characteristic of “Difficult People” (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).
“on the flight to Iowa”, Psaki told reporters: “This is a reminder that a Republican Congress working with a Republican president, Mitt Romney, would feel that women SHOULD NOT be able to make choices about their own healthcare“. Well, let’s put a different spin on this. Richard Mourdock’s comment about pregnancy and rape is disgraceful because he is implying that RAPE is “God-intended” or ACCEPTABLE.
According to Romney campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul, “Governor Romney DISAGREES WITH Richard Mourdock and Mr. Mourdock’s comments DO NOT reflect Governor Romney’s views“. Again, we’ve seen/read/heard this before. This is MECHANICAL. “We disagree on the policy regarding exceptions for rape and incest, BUT STILL SUPPORT HIM (?)” UNBELIEVABLE.
“The Indiana controversy was reminiscent of the uproar over Missouri Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin’s comments earlier this year (2012) that women’s bodies have defenses against pregnancy after “LEGITIMATE rape“. DISGRACEFUL. “rape” is NEVER “legitimate”.
“At a rally in (Reno) Nevada, which has THE HIGHEST state unemployment rate at 11.8 percent and has been among the leaders in home foreclosures, Romney warned that four more years of Obama’s leadership could be DEVASTATING for the economy”. “If he’s (i.e. OBAMA is) re-elected, I’m convinced you’re going to see the values of your homes continue to bump along in the basement. And you’re going to find it hard to get a mortgage as well“.
“Romney has repeatedly criticized Obama for a slow economic recovery that has left MORE families in poverty and the challenger’s running mate, Paul Ryan, on Wednesday (October 24, 2012) called for strengthening education efforts and community-based programs to help lift those on THE LOWEST rungs of the economy”. “in a speech at Cleveland State University”, Ryan said: “America’s engines of upward mobility AREN’T working the way they should. THERE HAS TO BE A BALANCE – allowing GOVERNMENT (?) to act for the common good (?), while LEAVING private groups FREE to do the work that only they can do“. Achieving this “balance” is key/critical, but THIS WILL BE DIFFICULT. Republicans usually DON’T have faith in “government”. Also, as we have seen, if “private groups” are “(left) free”, this could be DISASTROUS. In fact, this is exactly what caused THE GLOBAL FINANCIAL CRISIS. Everything was “left” COMPLETELY ALONE and DE-REGULATED.
Finally, “Billionaire real estate mogul and television personality Donald Trump, a persistent Obama critic who (actually) toyed with the idea of seeking the 2012 Republican presidential nomination (even though he had NO CHANCE), offered on Wednesday (October 24, 2012) to give $5 million to the charity of Obama’s choice if he released his college and PASSPORT records“. “passport records”. HERE WE GO AGAIN. “Trump, who has questioned whether Obama’s birth certificate issued by the state of Hawaii is legitimate, did not say what he expected the records to reveal. However, he asserted in a YouTube video released via his Twitter and Facebook pages that Obama is the “LEAST TRANSPARENT president in the history of the country (?)” So TRUMP is now a credible source? (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).
Obama’s a POLITICIAN so OF COURSE he WON’T reveal his agenda COMPLETELY. If he did, it would make him VULNERABLE.
