We all remember when the GOP had a sweeping victory in 2010 House of Representatives. But what have they been doing since then and how does it coincide with Romney's apparent turn from his centrist policies to the far right? Let's take a look...

Mitt Romney's Real Agenda



The GOP legislation awaiting Romney's signature isn't simply a return to the era of George W. Bush. From abortion rights and gun laws to tax giveaways and energy policy, it's far worse. Measures that have already sailed through the Republican House would roll back clean-air protections, gut both Medicare and Medicaid, lavish trillions in tax cuts on billionaires while raising taxes on the poor, and slash everything from college aid to veteran benefits. In fact, the tenets of Ryan Republicanism are so extreme that they even offend the pioneers of trickle-down economics. "Ryan takes out the ax and goes after programs for the poor – which is the last thing you ought to cut," says David Stockman, who served as Ronald Reagan's budget director. "It's ideology run amok."


And what else are they going after? The legislation they have put forth would mean fewer jobs, more religious laws, more discrimination against gays and other minorities, it would pollute our water and air, would make it harder for people to attend college, increase the military industrial complex, deny help for poor people, destroy healthcare, would take away women's rights, and make it possible for millionaires to make even more money just for making money.

As regards women's issues, Wake Up: It's not just Akin!



But don't think for a second that social issues -- particularly abortion -- are not in the GOP's sights. Since the tea party helped pull the GOP back into power in 2010 -- under the guise of controlling government spending -- close to 1,000 anti-abortion bills have been introduced across the country.


Grover Norquist had this to say about electing Mitt:



All the Republicans need to realize their vision, he said, is a president "with enough working digits to handle a pen."


Wake up, America. Unless you WANT the country to slide off the right side of the scale, completely destroy the middle class and become like the religiously-governed countries of the Middle East, wake up!

Most Americans have clearly forgotten about the November 2010 election.


- We live in a society of chronic amnesiacs. -

-------------

President Mitt Romneys real agenda:

Restore Americas AAA credit rating.

Give our children a stronger America. Reduce the $16 trillion national debt.

Reform the Big 3: Social Security - MediCare - MediCaid

Grow the GDP at 5%.

Restore America with American Exceptionalism.


Reduce the unemployment rate to 4%. (Socialists run back into the bushes)

Mitt Romney's real agenda is to be everything Obama isn't. So Romney gets my vote.

Keep trying, BH!

This is actually Romney's only campaign strategy. He has no specifics or really any plans.

His only thing he has, and all his supporters have, is to attempt to bash Obama.


Thankfully, we don't have that many hate filled people in this country that will base their vote on the hatred of the opponent.

Really?

I think if we compare hate, the Right Wing is going to win by a landslide.

I dont, I think pushing race, religion and creed is a form of hate, bashing those who believe something is a form of hate and the democrats three rules are

1. blame republicans
2. blame bush
3. race bait

Correctly pointing out that the Republicans and Bush destroyed our economy isn't hate, it is fact.

Also, correctly pointing out racism isn't hate, the racism is the hate, calling it out is just being honest.

The problem may be that you don't understand the definition of "hate". The fact is that many people will be voting for Romney because they hate Obama, very few will be voting for Obama because they hate Romney.

You can base your vote on hate, I'd rather base my vote on someone I support and agree with.


Romney is a puppet for the extreme right, this is what the OP is showing. You and others are trying to dodge that inconvenient truth by talking about Obama. It is very telling, your unwillingness to focus on the topic of the thread and instead go straight to Obama bashing just shows how little faith you have in the person you will be voting for.

"The GOP legislation awaiting Romney's signature isn't simply a return to the era of George W. Bush."

No kidding. That was Obama, whom I affectionately dub Bush 3.0. This is typical partisan scare-mongering. Let's worry about the unknown evil if he ever gets elected. I'm more concerned about our current evil. You know, the guy who says one thing and then does the other by taking away more of our rights?

Talk about people needing to wake up! Each succeeding POTUS in the recent past has progressively screwed us over, and yet people still buy into the bi-partisan smokescreen nonsense.

Wrong, wrong, wrong-o-reeno.

This isn't about hate, it's being against the policies of this administration.

Nice knee-jerk though. The Hungarian judges gave you a 9.8!

The recession started under Bush, most of the lost jobs were under Bush, the stock market crash was under Bush.

These are verifiable concrete facts, they are not up for debate. If you deny this documented facts, then there is no use in trying to have a conversation with you, because me and you live in different realities.

Obama took us from negative GDP growth, losing jobs, losing stock value, and a failing housing economy to our current state which is positive GDP growth, gaining jobs, gaining stock value, and an improving housing economy.

And your complaint is that he didn't do it fast enough, I'm sorry but that is a pathetic complaint.

That would be all nice and well if Romney had any detailed plans that people support, but he doesn't.

He's not even sure if he is repealing Obamacare or keeping it, or keeping some of it, or just relying on the Emergency Departments to provide health care for everyone.

His tax policy, well, he wants you to see him after the election for those details. And that goes for pretty much all his policies, see him after the election.

I can confidently say that I support Obama because I agree with most of his policies and his performance these past 3.5 years.

So tell me, what is the Romney policy that you just love so much that you want to support him? Details would be nice.

So the recession didn't start under Bush?

Is that what you are telling me?

btw, even Romney and the Republicans now admit that Obama was handed a horrible situation with the recession.

Obama shored up the economy with keynesian economics. Everything that is "up" is due to government shoring it up, paying out tax payer money and new money. It's a false recovery. More people on foodstamps, more people unemployed.

That's his legacy.

Obama will go down in history as : The Food Stamp President

That's fine, you can disagree with his method of saving the economy as long as you admit, as you just did, that he did in fact save the economy.

You can call it a fake recovery, but there is nothing baking up that assertion right now. Right now we are in a recovery, a continuing recovery that is slow but steady.

At it's worst, we were at 10% (early 2009) unemployment, we are now at 8.1%.

At it's worst, the DOW was at 6626 (early 2009), now it is approaching 14,000

At it's worst, the GDP growth was at -8.9% (early 2009), we have now had 12 quarters straight of positive GDP growth.


You can't deny the facts, the recovery is real. Your only complaint is that it was too slow. Bush destroyed it, Obama saved it, and you and others are crying that it isn't fast enough.
