Barack Obama for Re-Election
The economy is slowly recovering from the 2008 meltdown, and the country could suffer another recession if the wrong policies take hold. The United States is embroiled in unstable regions that could easily explode into full-blown disaster. An ideological assault from the right has started to undermine the vital health reform law passed in 2010. Those forces are eroding womens access to health care, and their right to control their lives. Nearly 50 years after passage of the Civil Rights Act, all Americans rights are cheapened by the right wings determination to deny marriage benefits to a selected group of us. Astonishingly, even the very right to vote is being challenged.
That is the context for the Nov. 6 election, and as stark as it is, the choice is just as clear.
President Obama has shown a firm commitment to using government to help foster growth. He has formed sensible budget policies that are not dedicated to protecting the powerful, and has worked to save the social safety net to protect the powerless. Mr. Obama has impressive achievements despite the implacable wall of refusal erected by Congressional Republicans so intent on stopping him that they risked pushing the nation into depression, held its credit rating hostage, and hobbled economic recovery.
Mitt Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, has gotten this far with a guile that allows him to say whatever he thinks an audience wants to hear. But he has tied himself to the ultraconservative forces that control the Republican Party and embraced their policies, including reckless budget cuts and 30-year-old, discredited trickle-down ideas. Voters may still be confused about Mr. Romneys true identity, but they know the Republican Party, and a Romney administration would reflect its agenda.

No wonder readership of this rag is declineing.
I guess this means the “undecideds” have finally received their marching orders.
Why in the world do sane states with normal people have to be burdened with the disgusting east coast and west coast states? This is simply not a tenable position.
We are no longer “one nation under God” and the sooner a separation takes place, the better it will be for those who love the nation the Founders intended it to be.
Birds everywhere are constipated: refusing to poop on this cage liner of lies!

16 ounces of the Kool-aid makes you do crazy things...
I couldn’t get past the first sentence without seeing Oink! Oink! Oink! from the mascara-wearing poodles at the NYT.
Um, hello? FR is made in CA. Don’t throw your baby out with the bath water. There are good conservatives even in bad states and our NY freepers sure donor want to be blamed for this lying rag.
