Yeeeeeah, /DrEvil, Romney’s SUCH a big ANTI-abortion guy, Planned Parenthood.

Sell that one somewhere else (unfortunately, perhaps).

And that’s what the left does to those who turn on them.

Romney is no friend of true pro-lifers and Planned Parenthood knows it. But as is the case with anyone who turns against Big Abortion even in the name of political expedience like Mutt; there’s hell to pay.

Are they not a non profit entity and if so they should not be buying political ads. Is this not tax payer money? If so, I want my money that goes to them not be spent on this.

I doubt anyone has ever planned to have an abortion before they got pregers and since the point of an abortion is not to be a parent shouldn’t this org be called Unplanned Unparenthood?

It IS tax payer money and I don’t think they give a rip what

It IS all about the money...and power over lives.....

Very good assessment but because the people at planned parenthood are severely mentally challenged they will never understand the irony of their name.

The GOP should just suck it up and get rid of the socialist clown romney during the convention.

Even if I wanted to, there is no way I could defend the bozo against his own record much less the attacks from the democrat party socilaists.

Really... How to defend against this? “oh yeah?! well romney legalized abortion in mass when he was gov AND made sure that all females could get one for no more than $50 even minors... with or without parental notification.” Yeah... F’ing great... No thanks...

I was wondering that too ... a good lawsuit for tax fraud could sort it out.

Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) - the national office:

• a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization
• tax exempt

To be tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, an organization must be organized and operated exclusively for exempt purposes set forth in section 501(c)(3), and none of its earnings may inure to any private shareholder or individual. In addition, it may not be an action organization, i.e., it may not attempt to influence legislation as a substantial part of its activities and it may not participate in any campaign activity for or against political candidates.

Yeah, like that's gonna happen! I'm afraid we're stuck with omama-lite. I just hope and pray that he has a better respect for our troops than the usurper does! He certainly hasn't shown that he has respect for human life before birth...so far.....

I don’t think PP should be funded at all, but, we need some congress critters with enough balls to shut off $1/$1 funding for any activity like this. If PP is claiming this is not funded through government funds, it means they had funds they could have used rather than government funds... take them away.

Heh.. Im hoping he loses outright if he is actually the GOP nominee...

We will be in FAR worse shape if we turn over the last opposition to socialism (the republican party) to the socialists.

I would much rather preserve that opposition to the socialist agenda. Embarrass and weaken the socialists within the GOP by screwing their candidate. force the GOP to oppose the current socialist acting as president. Then try again to get a limited government conservative elected as president, or at the very least something other than a prick with a record of implementing socialist programs and appointing “progressive” activist judges.

Texas tried its best to do just that, but some idiot liberal
judge overturned Governor Perry’s rule.

Conservatives can’t win with the judges that are in place.

If they receive one single f*-ing dime of taxpayer money they should absolutely never support nor denounce a single candidate. I don’t care if it is a leftie or a rightie. Shut your f*n mouth before your funds are pulled.

That has never stopped anyone - 2004, 2008. The enforcement agency takes their marching order from the Marxist buffoon illegally residing in the People's White house. AND anyone believing the PACs don't coordinate with the candidate apparently just fell off the turnip truck.

Actually,

Electing a socialist as the “head” of the republican party would be an even quicker ending to the country.

Why? you ask?

Because...

The idiots in the GOP have have chosen to nominate a socialist as their candidate for president. There is a chance that we can correct that problem during the convention but not a significant chance. So... The “Progressives” in the GOP have set the stage for what is to come...

Now...

Option 1: Romney becomes the first socialist president elected by the republican party. The real limited government conservatives in congress refuse to go along with implenting his socialist agenda, but it doesnt matter because there will be planty of democrats that will be willing to cross the aisle and join in implementing his socialist agenda. Obamacare will be permanently enshrined as Romneycare and the the union of states will be done.

Option 2: The conservative base REJECTS romney and makes an example of him by making sure he never gets elected president. The socialists in the GOP have had their power significantly reduced and the conservatives have increased thier own. Hopefully eople will still get out to vote in the congressional elections and give the GOP control over both houses. After the embaressment of Romney the GOP will be more pliable and willing to stop and obstruct all future socialist agenda that zero attempts to pass. Plus they can and WILL defund obamacare.

Option 3: the GOP realizes they F’ed up trying to nominate a socialist and through convention maneuvers replaces him with someone the base can get behind. We go on to win the election and take control of congress. We then completely remove every last molecule of obamacare from existence.

I prefer option 3 but option 2 is probably our last best chance... Option one is epic failure....

Why don’t you think beyond your nose. How would you like Eric Holder as a US Supreme Court Judge. That’s what’s going to happen if BO gets an opportunity to name a Supreme Court judge.

Option 2 is not even an option. With Obama left in power, he will veto any attempt to get rid of Obamacare.

ABR’s really don’t think through the consequences of supporting the kenyan. Romney can be influenced just like Bush was when he nominated Harriet Myers.

Anybody who would prefer a nominee like Holder over John Roberts is no conservative and is just a strutting contrarian.

Planned “Parenthood” (sic). Isn’t that the organization who’s …..

Founder was a racist eugenicist;

employees advise pimps how to pose as Guardians;

employees regularly and as a matter of policy don’t report statutory rape;

employees drive drunk and hit 7-yr old girls on a bike in a crosswalk;

employees urge women to seek sex-selection abortions;

… all in addition to their primary mission of Killing Babies.

..we get it..

.you don't give a rip about our country and its future and boy, are you going to stomp your foot and have a temper tantrum...

just go ahead....

it takes 33% to make change like we need and then there's the 33% who sit on the sidelines and complain but don't do a damn "f'king" thing about and its people like that who'll keep bamey in power...

its sickening and its disgusting....I just hope you'll have the b*alls to refrain from complaining when you immaculate that dang bastard again...
