Clinton Republican lies

Benghazi? Really?

What purpose was served by McCain’s, Graham’s, Johnson’s, and Paul’s interrogation of Hillary Clinton regarding when she knew that it was a terrorist attack in Benghazi?  Would the timing of this knowledge have changed the outcome?  No, it wouldn’t have.  Funding enough security forces could have possibly changed the outcome.  The Republicans in Congress refused to pay for more security and look what happened.  Instead of them pointing the finger at the real problem which is Republican budget cuts, they attacked Hillary Clinton.  Republicans can’t handle the truth.

And Rand Paul made a complete fool of himself.  Turkey???

Mitt Romney – Survival by Tax Payer Money

Mitt Romney likes to say that “he can do that” or “that he can fix that” or “he fixed that in the past”.  This is always in relationship to the budget deficit.  Yet, it was tax payers money that saved Bain Capital not Mitt Romney.  He won’t talk about that.

Rolling Stone has the complete article which can be read here.

Except:

In fact, government documents on the bailout obtained by Rolling Stone show that the legend crafted by Romney is basically a lie. The federal records, obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, reveal that Romney’s initial rescue attempt at Bain & Company was actually a disaster – leaving the firm so financially strapped that it had “no value as a going concern.” Even worse, the federal bailout ultimately engineered by Romney screwed the FDIC – the bank insurance system backed by taxpayers – out of at least $10 million. And in an added insult, Romney rewarded top executives at Bain with hefty bonuses at the very moment that he was demanding his handout from the feds.

More on the War on Women…

The Republicans are waging a war on women.  They would like us to think that these attacks on women’s rights is about freedom of religion.  Well, I haven’t seen any government vehicles blocking the entrance to churches so we are still a nation that honors freedom of religion.

Here’s an interesting perspective of what is really happening to women “Get Your Government Hands Out of My Vagina”.   Yes, this may be about religion in the sense that the bible dictates that women are to be subservient to men.  Women are also the sinners that tempt men to sin.  The bible is filled with such stories.

The Real Pat Toomey – Final Entry

Pat Toomey knows that his ideology would make him unelectable so he re-invented himself as a “center-right” candidate.  The truth is that Toomey only changed his coat.  The clothes inside are still the same and this is why Toomey is evasive when asked questions about how he would represent the people of Pennsylvania.   Toomey is more reactionary than Santorum and he would only represent the interests of the wealthy and corporations which is what he did in the past.  He is hoping that you don’t remember.  Well, we do remember and in case you forgot, read this article.  It will remind you of the REAL TOOMEY and who he represents.  It won’t be you.

Did Corbett Ever Investigate the Republicans?

Tom Corbett is so partisan that he only went after the Democrats in Bonusgate even though the Republicans were just as guilty.

How can Tom Corbett represent the interests of ALL Pennsylvanians when his investigations as Attorney General only go in one direction, against the Democrats?

All Politics Are Local

This letter was forwarded to me by a friend.   In order to protect identities, some information was removed.

Dear ________ Township Democrat,

The coming election on November 2nd is the most important in the past ten years and may be the most important in your lifetime. There are forces at work to see to it that Democratic turnout remains low so that the Republicans can engineer their dream in Pennsylvania and the nation. And what is their dream and what does it mean to you and your family? Republican candidates across the country have articulated this dream in many ways but it comes down to this:

Shredding and dismantling the social safety nets of Social Security, Medicare, and benefits to Veterans

More attacks on our Constitutional rights                           Continued outsourcing of US jobs

More attacks on women’s rights and the poor                   Endless witch hunts in the House

Recklessly mishandling the economy                                    Failure to regulate Wall Street

Saying NO to all legislation, unless it is to extend tax cuts for the rich

 Their notion of shrinking government, as if it were somehow the enemy of the people is expressed as ‘privatizing’ or ‘personalizing’ Social Security to eventually get rid of it and turning back the clock to the ‘good old days’ of the 1800’s where bank panics like the one of 2008 were regular occurrences.

So what is their strategy? It starts in Washington and it ends in places like____Township with voters like you.  The mailers you have been receiving attacking Dave Kessler are part of a national campaign to take control of our state government so that they can impose their congressional redistricting plan on Pennsylvania.  They are targeting this seat to get a Republican majority in Harrisburg.

Don’t be fooled. Republicans are not on your side, and they hope you stay home on Nov.2. Democrats support “Economic Patriotism” which means, Products Made in America , Jobs for Americans, and protections for  the environment and security for the vulnerable.  

Get out and vote for Democrats to keep the right wing fringe of the Republican Party and the Tea Party from taking over our government.

Vote For:

Dan Onorato – Governor State of Pennsylvania  http://www.voteonorato.com

Joe Sestak – US Senate  http://joesestak.com/Home/Home.html

Tim Holden  – US Congress  http://timholden.com/

Dave Kessler – PA State Representative http://www.kesslerforpa.com

It Didn’t Take Long

… for the Republicans to break their “Pledge”.  When it came time to vote for the small business bill in the House, all but one Republican turned their backs on small businesses and voted “No” for tax breaks for small businesses.

You can trust that Republicans will always turn their backs on Main Street because Republicans are owned by Wall Street.

It is a One Way Street

Tom Corbett only investigates Democrats.  When it comes to investigating corruption in the Republican Party, Tom Corbett cuts and runs.

Pennsylvanians, please don’t elect this corrupt politician as our next Governor.

But Are They Willing

The Republicans presented the “Pledge to America” which is similar to the “Contract on America” that Newt Gingrich campioned during the Clinton Administration.  Republicans are good with words and bad with actions.  Their latest scam promises job creation, tax reduction (for the very rich) and spending cuts.  Since the Republicans are so gung-ho with spending cuts, are they willing to take a reduction in pay?  Are they willing to pay more for their benefits?  How do they plan to put more money in our pockets?  By busting Unions?  By dismantling Social Security?  They plan on repealing Obama’s health care bill.  How does that help us?  By allowing insurance companies to drop us when we get sick?  By allowing insurance companies to deny coverage because of pre-existing conditions?

The Republicans plan on shutting down the Government.  This means that no one will receive their Social Security checks, veterans won’t receive their deserved benefits, and Government employees won’t get paid.

Face the facts, people.  Republicans are mean, selfish, and nasty.

If the Tea Party whiners think that things are bad now, just wait until the Republicans take control.  They can kiss their unemployment, Social Security and Medicare good-bye because these are some of the spending cuts that Republicans are talking about.

Save our freedoms and protect our Constitution by voting for Democrats in November.
