In an ad produced by Susan B. Anthony List featuring Melissa Ohden, abortion survivor
When he was in the Illinois state Senate, Barack Obama voted to deny basic Constitutional protections for babies born alive from an abortion — not once, but four times. I know it’s by the grace of God that I’m alive today, if only to ask America this question: Is this the kind of leadership that will lead us forward — that would discard the weakest among us? (more…)
In the first debate of the 2012 Presidential election at Denver College, Barack Obama had an exchange regarding shipping of U.S. jobs overseas, also known as “outsourcing”. The Obama campaign has also criticized some of Mitt Romney’s investments for outsourcing U.S. jobs.
OBAMA: When it comes to corporate taxes, Governor Romney has said he wants to, in a revenue neutral way, close loopholes, deductions — he hasn’t identified which ones they are — but that thereby bring down the corporate rate. Well, I want to do the same thing, but I’ve actually identified how we can do that. And part of the way to do it is to not give tax breaks to companies that are shipping jobs overseas. Right now, you can actually take a deduction for moving a plant overseas. I think most Americans would say that doesn’t make sense. And all that raises revenue.
ROMNEY: The second topic, which is you said you get a deduction for taking a plant overseas. Look, I’ve been in business for 25 years. I have no idea what you’re talking about. I maybe need to get a new accountant. But — but the idea that you get a break for shipping jobs overseas is simply not the case.
During an exchange during the 2012 Vice-Presidential Debate Paul Ryan accused Joe Biden of wasting taxpayer dollars on green energy projects. Ryan said:
Ryan:Look at just the $90 billion in stimulus. The vice president was in charge of overseeing this. Ninety billion in green pork to campaign contributors and special interest groups.”
Biden: It was a good idea, Moody’s and others said that this was exactly what we needed to stop this from going off the cliff. It set the conditions to be able to grow again.
Ryan: Was it a good idea to spend taxpayer dollars on electric cars in Finland, or on windmills in China?
Ryan’s claim mirrored that of an Americans for Prosperity TV ad that also blamed President Barack Obama for sending stimulus money overseas:
Tell President Obama, American tax dollars should help American taxpayers. Instead, $2.3 billion in tax credits funded jobs in Mexico, Finland and China.
During the second debate of the 2012 Presidential Election, Barack Obama said that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms:
When Governor Romney says that we should eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood, there are millions of women all across the country, who rely on Planned Parenthood for, not just contraceptive care, they rely on it for mammograms, for cervical cancer screenings.
Commentators noted that a letter written to the New York Times “Ethecist”, Chuck Klosterman, on July 13, 2012, had uncanny parallels to the breaking story of the resignation of David Petraeus due to his affair with Paula Broadwell and suggested the letter may have been written by Broadwell’s husband, Scott.
On October 26, a claim that the two Navy SEALS who had died in the 2012 Benghazi Attack had killed 60 jihadis started on twitter.
On October 26, Mitt Romney told a crowd in Defiance, Ohio, that Chrysler was planning to move Jeep jobs to China.
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 at a rally in Defiance, Ohio, home to a General Motors powertrain plant. “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.”
On October 28, Mitt Romney’s campaign, released an ad that says Obama “sold Chrysler to Italians who are going to build Jeeps in China”.
