The Duped Republican
I am a 54 year old white male, Christian. Graduated from a prominent Christian University in the south. I have voted Republican all my life.
Quite frankly I am ashamed of the Republican Party. I think it is a bunch of racist people and extreme right wing Christians.
If Obama was white, this election would be a landslide for him. He is a President for all the people, his policies are working ( amazingly fast considering the the mess we were in ) and is a man of Character. I was so proud of this country for electing President Obama in 2008. I was so proud to be a American. I thought we had grown out of that horrible racial history of ours.
Governor Mitt Romney’s slimly remarks regarding the President’s citizenship, is just the reflection of my racist party. Its just shameful !!
Gov. John Sununu, apparently piqued at former (Republican) Secretary of State Colin Powell’s endorsement of Obama, suggested that the respected general was making a decision based on some sort of racial solidarity. Said Sununu on CNN:
When you take a look at Colin Powell, you have to look at whether that’s an endorsement based on issues or he’s got a slightly different reason for endorsing President Obama. I think when you have somebody of your own race that you’re proud of being president of the United States, I applaud Colin for standing with him.
John Sununu ” Look at Colin Powell, look at the color of his skin and look at the President’s color of his skin”
It’s disrespectful, shameful and I am sorry I have held up and voted for the Republican beliefs. In my opinion the Republican party stands for racism and cronyism. Whatever happened to judging a person for the content of their character and not the color of their skin?
Along with racism and cronyism this party is full of a bunch of old white men with grey hair, wanting to crawl into women’s bodyies. Old white men with grey hair wanting to tell women what they can and cant do with thier body—-the old white grey haired men want to be in charge of that too.
Rush Limbaugh—-“she is a *lut” “she’s a prostitute”——shameful. She is also a American student expressing her feelings. Shameful
Legitimate rape and God intended rape. What shameful words from old white, grey haired men.
Old white grey haired man Todd Atkin talking about God and women’s bodies. “if its a legitimate rape the women’s body has a way of shutting that whole thing down”. With that line of “reasoning”, why doesn’t Atkin use God and mens bodies as an example ” ifs its a legitimate rape, wouldn’t the rapist body not be able to get it up?
Old white, grey haired Mr Mourodock has come to the conclusion that God intends for rape to happen. Rape is somehow a gift from God. If its a gift from God, why do we prosecute rapists. These old white, grey haired men think they know so much about God and women’s bodies. Why is there never a talk about God and mens bodies?? If Rape is a gift from God why prosecute the rapist, he is the messenger from God with the gift. Republican ideals are so contradictive and hypocritical. These old white, grey haired men seem to feel impelled to bring God into these controversial subjects, to gain support from their extreme right wing base. In my opinion, they are just looking for votes. Tell the extreme right wing Christians what they want to hear, then apologize to the people they offend. They get elected, talk a lot, stir up strife and cause gridlock. Talk about over paid unproductive citizens.
Republican party campaign ” we will not let fact checkers dictate our campaign” That means the words out of our mouth have no integrity.
Donald Trump on David Letterman last night said he was supporting Mitt Romney, because Mitt Romney will be tough on China. Donald also brought a line of clothing (shirts and ties) he is introducing and promoting. David Letterman looked at the tag on the tie. The tag… “Made in China” Thats the first time I’ve seen Donald Trump with nothing to say. Old white haired Republican hypocrite words. The truth and facts to them mean nothing. They will say whatever–the words that come out of their mouth mean nothing to them. What kind of character is that??
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney repeated a false claim Thursday night that Chrysler Group may move all Jeep vehicle production to China, drawing criticism from the Obama campaign, which said the Michigan native had blatantly skewed a news wire story.
Romney’s comments came the same day that the Free Pressreported that 1,100 new Chrysler workers will begin making the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs at a plant in Detroit next 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,” Romney said during a rally in Defiance, Ohio, before 12,000 cheering supporters, according to several reports. “I will fight for every good job in America, I’m going to fight to make sure trade is fair, and if it’s fair, America will win.”
Gualberto Ranieri, Chrysler’s vice president of communications, criticized those stories Thursday even before Romney made his comments.
“Let’s set the record straight: Jeep has no intention of shifting production of its Jeep models out of North America to China,”
I feel duped by my party.
I want a President with character and integrity. I am voting for President Obama
