Republicans would undo Obama's work

This year, 2012, we as a nation of love of America need to think positive. Should we elect a Mitt Romney or Barack Obama?

Let Obama continue putting people to work. Let him prove that he can get this country on the right track. If Romney gets in office, and as with all presidents, he does not know what waits for him as president.

They all -- I mean presidents -- don't know what they are headed for and it takes them one year to find out, so I say why? So many people hate Obama when his hands have been tied because the speaker of Congress hates him so much they won't pass any bill he puts before them. Is it jealousy, greed or they want his job?

So be it. If the Republicans get in the White House, this nation will be gone to hell in a wastebasket. There is not one of these people, including Obama, who can get this economy back on track without God's help, and they need to rely on God with pure honesty, not lies. God sees all and knows all. And don't let money rule this nation. God will take care.

So, you would agree that President Obama has the right to tell relegions they have to fund birth control and abortions for their employees, despite it being in violation of the basic tenants of the Bible as interpreted by these Relegions? You agree these same Relegions must hire individuals whose life style is in direct opposition to the tenants of that relegion? You agree that everyone needs a Cell Phone paid for by the taxpayer? Tell me, what are you going to say when our President calls for transportation for everyone, beyond Public Transportation? Such as providing them a vehicle, gas and insurance on the Taxpayers dime? You sure you can afford four more years? Or are you one of the 57% non-contributors?

I read today where taxpayers paid $1.6 billion (yep, with a "B") for free cell phones. $1.6 BILLION!

It's the ignorance of folks like Miss Nadine that the Democrats are counting on. The Dems thank God every night and every day for this kind of blind ignorance. It's a shame really.

She probably votes for Sanford Bishop, too...you know, the one that has sponsored 6 bills in 26 years. After 26 years, he's part of the problem, not the solution. Hopefully we can boot Bishop AND Obama this November.

I understand your position, Nadine. The problem is that it is based on a lack of understanding.

First, President Obama has not been creating jobs, at least not outside of the political arena. In fact, his policies have damaged the job market. People and businesses are hesitant to put their money on the line to expand when both his rhetoric and his policies make their success less likely. His moratorium on drilling in the Gulf and more recently his blocking of the Keystone pipeline have cost us jobs and will raise the price of gas when you fill up. Job growth, especially after a recession, is expected. Compare the rate of growth to the years following previous recessions and you will see that recoveries were handled much better then than now.

Second, Presidents do not put bills before Congress. Bills are typically written in either the House of Representatives or the Senate. For instance, since the republicans took control of the House of Representatives, numerous jobs bills have been passed and sent to the Senate where Democrat Majority leader Harry Reid has prevented them from even being voted on. Over twenty of them sit in the senate today. Your sources of information probably failed to pass this along to you. Could it be possible that republicans oppose Obama's policies because they disagree with those policies? Or, do Reid and Obama oppose republican proposals because they hate republicans?

Please look at what the Obama administration has really done these three years. In the name of helping people, we see the government dictating what the people can and can not do. Obamacare restricts freedom of both businesses and individuals to decide what they want to provide or purchase in the form of insurance. As a political favor to his political supporters,the Obama administration told Boeing they could not build a factory in South Carolina that would provide many well paying jobs . Every one should fear a government that gives itself more power over its people, regardless of political leanings.

Nadine, in spite of what you seem to believe, Republicans also want the citizens of our great country to be prosperous, healthy and happy. The difference, in my view, is that the Republicans believe the goal is more achievable through greater personal freedoms and less governmental control while Democrats consistently show that they believe that politicians and bureaucrats know whats best for us.

I agree that God knows all and sees all. He may be seeing us putting our faith in politicians rather than in Him.

About the Boeing comment: This was political. During a Romney speech he made reference to Boeing and I think you are referring to them not building in a non-union state (South Carolina, a right-to-work state) and if you would check facts I think you would find that you may be wrong or have interpreted the fact incorrectly. I don't think it had anything to do with the President or Congress saying Boeing could not build where they wanted to. A Right to Work law makes it harder for unions to collect money from non-union workers. Unions hate these laws about as much as most Republican voters love them.About six years ago, Boeing was ramping up to build its newest passenger jet, the 787 Dreamliner. The company explored making all the planes at its factories in Washington state, but in 2009, it decided to start a second, smaller production line in South Carolina. The union plants in Puget Sound would make seven planes a month; the non-union facility in North Charleston, S.C. would produce three a month. The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers complained. The NLRB’s general counsel tried to bring the parties together but failed. In April 2011, the general counsel’s office formally issued a complaint on the grounds that Boeing built its factory in South Carolina in order to punish the union. Romney claimed that the NLRB told Boeing that it "can’t build a factory in a non-union state." This presents a sweeping distortion of the NLRB's actions that is not borne out by the facts. An office at the NLRB has started a process that could, at the theoretical limit, result in a factory closure, but the NLRB as a whole hasn’t told Boeing anything. The office of the NLRB that moved the complaint forward could have asked for the factory to close while its complaint was pending, and it did not. The legal basis for the action centers on whether Boeing was trying to punish the union for being willing to call a strike, not that Boeing had opened a factory in a right-to-work state. Romney’s statement reflects reality in that a Democratic administration tends to give more weight to union complaints, and unions don’t like to see jobs flow to right-to-work states. But his words go far beyond what the NLRB has actually done.

**Oh and PS....before the jabs start....I am non-union (altho my husband was union for 20 years, I am neither Democrat or Republican, I despise Harry Reid, most all politicians for that fact, and don't think we have have had anyone decent in Washington since Barbara Jordan was in Congress, since Thurgood Marshall sat on the Supreme Court, since Sam Nunn represented me in Congress, and remember Nadine is entitled to her opinion.......opinions are like those little orifices .........you know the ones down there where we sit....we all have them.....so get over it!!!!!

Bottom line is that the NLRB, weighted with democratic appointees, was blocking a privately owned company’s expansion in South Carolina. The Wagner Act set up the NLRB during FDR’s administration and like many good intentioned actions has gone from giving voice to those who needed it to creating the new playground bully. Like judges interpreting law, the NLRB can create new powers through imaginative interpretations. You acknowledged that the NLRB reflects the leanings of the administration in power. Congressman Issa is attempting to discover how much influence the Obama administration exerted in this case. Looking at the facts, I think giving Obama credit for the pressure on Boeing is a logical interpretation. As for the statement that "ttheoretically ... a plant could have been shut down" indicates that what was being done had to result in tremendous pressure on Boeing. Just what the union wanted.

Yes and I find it very interesting and think you may too, that many writers are comparing the storyline of ATLAS SHRUGGED to Obama's Boeing-NLRB scenerio......stating "In an almost eerily similar fashion, Obama’s National Labor Relations Board is attempting to control Boeing; not what they make … but where they make it." The major part of the story line involves government, unions, and how they are trying to control everything from how much one can earn, to what one can own and produce.
