Spike Lee doesn’t think Americans will vote for a Mormon

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Last week, Spike Lee was interviewed by Vulture magazine and he was asked specifically on his thoughts on the Presidential election and Mitt Romney. Lee, never one to turn from controversy or hide his opinion, said that the election will be close but that it is Romney’s faith which could lead to a loss in November.

A portion of the interview is below:

How do you think President Obama is doing?
I support him; my wife and I gave a benefit for him at our house. But I think this election is going to be close. Bottom line, there are many people in America who look at themselves and say, “Am I better now than I was before?” It is going to be tooth and nail, and I think it is going to get nasty. But, in my opinion, if they are trying to bring up Reverend Jeremiah Wright again, they are really reaching. I hope and pray that people are not going to go for the Willie Horton okeydoke.

Do you think people will?
I got faith that they won’t. Honestly, though, the big question is, I think there will be a block of people saying, “I cannot vote for a Mormon.”

Are those people voting for Obama instead? That seems unlikely.
They got a tough decision: Obama or a Mormon. Their beliefs got them between a rock and a hard place.

What do you think of Romney?
You know what’s funny? I met him in an airport, Reagan National Airport, and we said hello. It was, like, two, three years ago. I was just in D.C. and he was there and he said, “What’s up, Spike?” and I said, “What’s happening, Mitt?” We were in line getting something to eat. So I said what’s up and shook hands. I think it is going to be very, very, very close.

The radio crew took issue with a few points in Spike’s argument, specifically his lack of faith in the American people and his invocation of Willie Horton.

Horton was a convicted felon who was sentenced to life in prison for murder. However, Massachusetts allowed inmates serving life sentences without parole weekend furloughs where they could leave the prison. Horton  did not return at the end of his furlough, and twice raped a woman after knifing and restraining her fiance. President George H.W. Bush used the incident in campaign ads to attack Massachusetts Governor and political opponent Michael Dukakis who had defended the program.

“Willie Horton was a criminal, a murderer that was released because they were letting convicted murderers go away for the weekend from prison,” Stu exclaimed. “That is a legitimate policy to criticize.”

Glenn, meanwhile, said that despite America having periods of bigotry, in every case those periods have been overcome. Prejudice against Indians, African Americans, the Japanese and more have all existed but been stopped by the American people.

“We’ve conquered a lot of it.  A lot of it.  Look at how far we’ve come as a nation,” Glenn said.

“Thomas Jefferson was right:  The people are going to screw it up from time to time, but in the end they will get it right.  We got it wrong on slavery, but in the end we get it right.  We get it right in the end.  We always do.  Trust the people.  Our time as a country hating people because of skin color and descent or religion is over,” he said.

    So the American people have shown Jefferson to be right; we have messed things up for some time, and now have the chance to put things right once again.

    The matter of people not voting for Romney is basic nonsense and uttermost insanity that comes from the leftists, where if I remember right, two members of Congress, both democrats, are mormon as well.

    This is only another frantic effort by the left to demonize and discredit someone from another angle since he is not Democratic. They continuously attack Romney with claims about hidden accounts and businesses, utterly proven to be falsehoods and fabrications; demand he show his tax returns, as he has done for 2010, and not for 2011 due to not having them availible, while Obama refuses the same.

     Being a Mormon will be irrelevant.  If that were really true that people cannot vote for a Mormon then why do American people stay at Marriott hotels?  Is not Jay Marriott a Mormon?

    And the people that get hurt alone the way…

    Well Mormonism and Islam do share many similarities…. So it’s probably hard for everyone to get there heads around.  Personally I would like to keep religion out of Politics, Obama or Romney should keep their religious beliefs out of politics

    Maybe they won’t vote for a mormon spike, but then again maybe they won’t make the mistake of twice voting for a MORON named obama.

    Americans won’t vote against Romney because he’s a Mormon; they will vote for him because:

    1. He knows business and will create jobs.
    2. He is a free market capitalist and will get out of the way of job-creators.
    3. He is a family man.
    4. He is not a Marxist nor a race-baiter.
    5. He loves his country and believes in the inherent goodness and greatness of Americans.
    6. His wife has been proud to be an American for her entire life.

    I won’t vote for him because he’s a mormon and a progressive. He’s no different than Barry.

    Because Spike Lee always has his finger on the pulse of America……LOL

    Of course Spike thinks that.  He’s a bigot, so he thinks that everyone else is too.  Same reason a liar thinks everyone lies, and a thief thinks everyone steals.

    Amen to that.

  • http://www.facebook.com/Nick3464 Nick Jensen

    People make that claim about Mormonism, but there’s no basis to it.  I’m not Mormon, but I was raised Mormon.  Just like all other Christians, Mormons believe that Jesus Christ was the son of God, who died on the cross to redeem sinners by taking their sins upon himself.  Muslims believe that Jesus was nothing more than a prophet, such as Elijah, Moses, etc.

    Apparently Spike Lee thinks most Americans are as bigoted as he is

  • The Craig Machine

    Your list sounds like it came hot off the Mitt Talking Points Fax.

    1. Does Government create jobs or not? By stating that Mitt will create jobs if President, is arguing that Government does indeed create jobs. Please take a look at where Massachusetts ranked during his term as Governor there. Does that suggest he will do as you say if you are correct in that Governments do create jobs?

    2. Seeing that Mitt supported the Tarp Bailouts and sought Tax Payer bail out money for the Winter Olympics he oversaw, I would not be so quick to call him a free-market capitalist. Also, have you heard of U.N. Agenda 21? Mitt implemented many of it’s goals on a State level while Governor, hardly free-market either. Oooops almost forgot, the dreaded Romney Care!

    3. That’s nice, what does that have to do with being President?

    4. If he is not a Marxist than what is he? A Fascist? A Corporatist? A Crony-Capitalist? All of the above? Hitler, Mussolini, Kadafi, King George III, and many others Rulers were not Marxists either. Marxism isn’t the only threat to America.

    5. How do you know he loves his country and believes what you say he does? His support of UN Agenda 21 tells a different tale as does mandating individuals to buy health insurance (AKA Romney Care).

    6. That’s nice and don’t forget that Mitt never ate dog either!

    I’m no theologist, but my understand in the similarities is to do with Mohammed  and Joseph Smith.

    here are a few.

    · came from poor families;· had little education;· wanted to unite the religions of their day;· believed their new religions were a continuation from ancient biblical times;· maintained that the Bible prophesied their own appearances on earth;· claimed to have had revelations from God, allowing for their chosen lifestyles;· were leaders of their own militias;· started out monogamous but became polygamous;· held that heaven would be filled with many physical pleasures, including sex.The one thing that is similar is Mormonism and Islam are the worlds 2 fastest growing religions.I honestly don’t care about Romneys or Obamas religion, thats up to them, just keep your religious preferences out of the white house.

    I think Americans will be very disappointed if he gets elected.  He will say anything to get elected and then will likely change his mind once in office.

    1.  Immigration – For A Path To Citizenship, Then Against.

    2. On Bush Tax cuts, No position now against it.

    3.  Anti-Reagan then, now Pro-Reagan.

    4. For Gun control now against gun control.

    5. Global warming. Believes it, now doesn’t

    6.  HEalthcare.  Started Romney Care, but opposes the same Obama care.

    7. refuse to sign the no new tax pledge, now has signed it

    8. Was Pro Choice now Anti Choice.

    Your might be right though Samaritan01 about his Business mind, He saw an opening and the current conservative trends and dialog, and co-oped them.  So he changed his business model to get his customers.  Is America a Corporation though?

    You might want to check his background before you sell the farm on this guy.

    You know who wished was in  the nomination run  2000 John McCain.  Not the sell out McCain of 2008.  The Original, Honest McCain.

    I guess it goes to show you they’ll are charlatans, and sell out.

    You’ve failed to state how Mormonism and Islam are alike.  Maybe Nick Jensen and I weren’t clear but we’d like you to state how the TENETS of the two faiths are in any way similar.  The lives of the founders of the two religions had some obvious similarities but the ideas of their religions are antithetical.  Ask any Muslim for instance if they agree with anyone who is not a Muslim, let me save you some time, they don’t, ever.  It’s a patent falsehood to say, “[both] started out monogamous but became polygamous.”  Wrong, in the case of Mormonism it’s the exact opposite, polygamous practices arose at the beginning and have faded to almost nothing now.  In the case of Islam, polygamy was there at the beginning (read the Koran) and will always be a practice common to Islam.  It’s even an exact number, they allow for 4 wives at a time AND they allow for two divorces in a lifetime…each of these privileges are for men only.

    Well, Spike Lee was wrong about who the real Zimmermans were and probably didn’t “DO THE RIGHT THING” by compensating or even apologizing to them. He probably also thought we were all too racist to elect Obama. Guess what Spike? You were an ignorant BIGOT then. And you are an ignorant bigot NOW!

  • sparducks

    No what’s wrong with this country is that good men haven’t done enough name calling. Why be civil? This moronic idea isn’t working. One thing for sure Obama right now is worse than Romney. He wispered to Medvedev ” tell vlad that I’ll have a little more flexability after the election”. I’m paraphrasing but you get the point. Romney hasn’t done THAT yet. And so my vote goes to Mitt. And if he ends up on the wrong side of any of the issues you just stated it will be a far cry from TREASON. And btw. Your not fooling anyone with your feigned concern that Romney is fooling conservatives, You commie pinko dnc operative you. Why don’t you go bust yer chops on another site like maybe al jazeera or something. Blowhard.

    Its amazing to me, that should I question something on here, or pose a question I’m immediately a Commie, or a democrat.

    I don’t believe actually anything I’ve said is any different to some of the comment that Beck made during the nomination.

    Petty name calling does nothing in public discourse except, ruin your argument and reinforce a stereotype.  In none of my comment to folks on this blog do I resort to ridiculous name calling.

    I don’t know why I have to should state this over and over, I’m not a democrat and I didn’t vote for Obama.

    I am a concerned, hard working family man.

    I guess Spike thinks people had rather vote for a Muslim than for a Mormon. Spike would vote
    for a monkey if it was a Democrat. I bet if you check out who is the most honest Romney would
    win hands down.

  • sparducks

    I love how these commie Oboma sychopants post on GB posing as concerned conservatives pointing out all the minutia about romney and trying to chisle away at his character. Take your minutia and shove it in your ear. There is one thing Romney has going for him, he is not Barack Obama. Now maybe you little bastards outa go over to Spike Lees channel and comment there. Stop all of this feigned concern as if us old timers can’t see through your facade. This election is not about minutia. It’s about principle. It’s about Getting rid of this President. He is a hack at best and a communist at worst and he is leading america to financial disaster. So take all of you agenda 21 bull crap and all of your corporatist, crony capitalist bull crapisms and go back to your dorm room and let the adults talk in peace.

  • sparducks

    If your a concerned and hard working family man as you say then do right by your family and vote for Romney you jackass. What’s to be gained by voting for Ron Paul? Nothing. Nothing but an Obama win and the noose sinched a little tighter around our necks. Grow up and stop with all this hogwash your spewing. Help America and your children by getting this street thug out of the whitehouse………..But I have a hunch you are indeed what I stated a commie pinko dnc operative.

    If the only difference between two candidates was that one was a Mormon and the other was any other flavor of Christianity, I would not vote for the Mormon. That said, I doubt that hypothetical would ever occur.

     The only thing you are going to get by voting for Ron Paul is four more years of Obama.  It’s a sad thing, but the media controls who runs. That includes Fox News.  We saw it in 2008, and we are seeing it again.  Maybe after Obama’s second term, a viable third party will emerge with a set of bullocks.  I couldn’t care one crap about Branson.  I’ll never go there, anyway.  So he’s a Mormon.  I’ve known many Mormons,and, politically, they seem to share what used to be core American beliefs.

    Your retarded gobblygook is what got this great country in trouble in the first place.

I know plenty of conservatives who talk like truck drivers and use the f-word in every sentence. The military is full of them. And they aint votin for Obama. Now take your fake pauliana diatribe to another place cause we the people didnt come to Glenn Becks channel to Call Spike Lee a gentleman. He’s a punk Commie pinko anti american puke. And as far as changing minds, aint gonna happen if you voted for Obama you don’t have a brain. No brain no mind. Nothin to change. I don’t agree with John Mccainn on much. But the man got the rnc nomination, I sure wasnt gonna vote for the phoney con artist Barack Obama. If you care at all about this country you’ll vote for Romney If you vote for Obama you A. hate America or B. have absolutely no brain. Okay cap tee. Now as the debt rises and these robbers filter trillions of dollars into various offshore accounts and grease the palms of union bosses you tell me why the heck I outa be civil.

    It is a sad day in the USA when citizens are condemned for considering someone’s religion when voting.  The media ask about a candidates religion. Most candidates disclose their church and civic activities.  It sounds like Glen Beck thinks Obama’s religion articulated by his long time pastor, Jeremiah Wright is off limits.  Of course it is not neither is Mitt Romney’s religion.  A candidates religious faith is one of many items consideration by voters. They also consider cultural influences, college, parential history, work experience, volunteer activities, sports interest, economic philosophy, and place of birth.

  • sparducks

    Romney didnt spend 5 trillion dollars in less than 4 years. Now you are either really dumb or really young or both to not ask yourself, just where did all that money go? Do you understand the enormity of that figure? Clinton came to office a man of meager finances and so did Obama. Clinton is a very wealthy man. So is Obama and you one day will see just how wealthy he made himself. This kind of thing happens in banana republics. Fleece and run. Get a clue.

    Assessing ones leadership and decision-making ability includes what and why they believe.  Mitt Romney will become President of the United States in spite of his religion.  I hope he becomes what he has never been, which is a strong conservative leader that reverses our slide rather than slow the descent.

    Concerning his religion and administration of the Office of the Presidency.  I believe he will do what most Presidents strive to do, which is support all Americans and their respective religion (that is not obsurb or destructive) without denying our JudeoChristian values or our Christian foundation.  Mormonism is not a Christian sect, but it certainly has elements of Christianity.  No one should be surprised if he quotes the Book of Mormon, but I would expect it to be in a way to compliments Christian ideals.

    Good points Captain,

  • sparducks

    Duly noted. And my point is That a great leader does’nt have to be a believer in orthodox christianity to be trusted and voted for. God refered to Cyrus as “My servant” and I would think Cyrus was probably Zoastrian. So how are all of these DNC operatives gonna feel about Zoastrians. This is madness. There are 535 congressmen in the house. We can toss ‘em out every 2 years. If Romney ends up being a turd we’ll have to count on congress. But to keep BHO in office because mitt is a mormon? wrong answer. Also I don’t believe in making fun of any mans religion. I personally dont believe at all in mormanism but i’ll bet mitt has sinned less than me. That goes for muslims too. I don’t believe in making derogatory insults about them even if I am vehementally against their religion. So we have a muslim next a mormon and if that dont work a zoastrian next. Whata ya say?

    As a Catholic,  Democrat , Mex-American, I  do NOT  have to think twice,  the choice between voting for  A  Communist  or a Mormon,  Defintely I will vote for  a Mormon.  Keep it SIMPLE,   ROMNEY LOVES OUR COUNTRY,  and LOVES  AMERICANS.  hIs wife Ann  we know she truly loves our country.and is proud to be an American,  she will make a beautiful First Lady.  Romney  will be a GREAT President. When I read that  Catholics will not vote for Romney I say that is a lie,  or that  what you cal hispanic will not vote for Romney, I say that is a lie.  I do not like the word hispanic, you never know what country you are talking about.  I prefer  Mex-Americans  even better American-Mex.   Our country is all screwed up right now that  my husband and I  will definitely  vote Straight Republican.

    Nobody can be worse  than   obama  as president, we need to replace this campaigner in-chief, he started campaigning in 2004 and has not stop. Obama already proved  he is real good but in destroying our country, hypnitizing people as he goes along.
    Most people are unhappy  with his policies, has not even submit ONE BUDGET and his  ONE term is almost over.  That is sorry. He has NOT LEARN   his job, he wants to do the easy way thru Executive orders.  Hillary was right  about him not ready in Day one, he proved her right.

    Yeah, Parker, you and me both.  Something didn’t sit right with

    me about B.O. and after I found out how he voted as an IL.

    state senator in allowing living fetuses from botched abortions

    to be killed, that was enough for me.  But then, he really didn’t

    seem to be quite ”authentic”, do you know what I mean?

    I guess it must be difficult to constantly live a lie.

    You’ve made the error of confusing a change of mind with flip-flopping.  If you want to pin the label of “flip-flopper” on Romney you have to choose something that he once supported, then no longer supported, then again supported.  That’s true flip-flopping, like the way Obama flip-flopped on gay marriage about five times. Remember that Ronald Reagan was once a democrat, then became a republican.  That was not flip-flopping.  It was a change of heart and mind.  

  • Mark Cline

    As a Christian I thought about Romney’s mormonism and concluded that while I would prefer it if he were a main-stream Christian, I at least am comforted by the fact that he apears to worship the same God as I do, even if it is in a distorted way.  He doesn’t appear to worship himself, as does Obama.  Nor does he claim to be a Christian while being biased toward another religion, as Obama is toward Islam. I don’t think Obama really cares about either one, but really worships himself.  So at least Romney is true to his own faith, even if it is arguably a cult.  And speaking of being true, Obama tramples on truth every time he opens his mouth.  And when he tramples on truth, he tramples on Truth, who is Jesus Christ. Mormons aspire to become gods in eternity, which is akin to the original sin of pride that Lucifer commited, desiring to become like the Most High God and being worshipped as such.  And that IS a spiritual problem for them.  But unlike Obama, Mormons, (and in this case Romney), aren’t trying to be worshipped by their fellow Americans.  Romney’s attitude doen’t appear to even come close to that of Obama.  He appears to believe in true rightousness, and not just in situational ethics.  And that means a lot to me.  Again, I would prefer he were a main-stream Christian.  But what he is, is so far above what Obama is that there’s no contest.  I have no problem voting for a  faithful Mormon when the only viable alternative is an anti-christ if not THE anti-christ.  If Obama gets re-elected and the Church hasn’t beamed out of here by then, I’m seriously considering pulling the plug on my television altogether.  It would be just too disturbing to watch any more.

    Look, I don’t have a probem with you pointing out what you believe about Romney, but the fact that you can’t list anything wrong with Obama says you are a hypocrit. Did you see the videos of Obama?I bet you have, but you discounted the fact that he attempted to bring a communist on board by the name of Van Jones. Van Jones is in a video after being appointed to the green Czar position saying he is going to use Global Warming to completely destroy the American system. Van Jones hates America, but Obama loves him. Now tell us about Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorne (Sp)? Oh, how about Eric Holder who wil not prosecute black on white crimes? What about Obama’s relationship with Farrakhan? You can only ignore these things if you are for Obama turning this country into a communist county; otherwise, ignorant does not come close to describing your ability to hide your head in the sand.

    1.) Immigration – Romney is for a legal way of immigrants coming to this country, what Romney is trying to figure out is what do you do with families that are already here. Obama is for illegal immigration and is willing to sue Arizona, Texas an Florida for even attempting to make sure that all votes are from legal American citizens.
    2.) Romney is for continuing the Bush Tax cuts indefinitely. Saying they’re tax cuts today is disingenious since they have beenin place for over 10 years. Obama was against all Bush tax cuts, then Clinton gave him a dumbing down and all of the sudden Obama is for them, but just not for the rich. Come on, add up all the money you are going to tax the rich and you haven’t put a dent in paying our debt down. Obama spends our tax dollars and has no budget in place and worse he refuses to cut any wateful sending such as 480 million for NPR. You think that is nothing but tha is $4 less in taxes to every American. Now, imagine if he cut all the other projects which are lining Unions pockets? Wow!
    3) I have never heard of Romney being Anti Reagan, ever. I am sure your comment is a play on words or Romney being against a policy of Reagan and you making a fish story out of it. However, it is amazing that Obama has taken steps to move this country towards socialism and then trys to compare himself to Reagan. What a laugh. His new slogan is Forward which is a communist term to move past captitalism to communism. If you don’t believe it then look it up and while you are there look up all the radicals that Obama has hired or sided with while in office, or in his life.
    5) Global Warming – I have studied Global Warming for years on the internet and you find many who have an agenda and are lying. You find that those who are for Global Warming leave out critical reports or add a portion of a report or create a tie to global warming that they, themselves know does not exist. My conclusion on Global Warming is that it may exist, but it wasn’t man made. So, if you were honest and really studied Global Warming you would find out that it is a mess. The U.N. is using it to redistribute the wealth of America.
    6) Health care – Mitt Romney created is healthcare program to try and control the cost of health care in his state. He has consistenetly said hs program was good for his state but not to be forced on the entire country. He said each state should be responsible for tayloring a health care program for their state. Nothing has changed as to what Romney has said.

    I will stop here, because you should have received my point, and that is you are attempting to convince conservatives to vote for Obama. I don’t think you are someone who just wondered onto the site and madeyour cliams, why would you have left yourself wide open to others proving you wrong. The one thing you will find about consrvatives is that they will investigate facts. They will actually take the time to look at where the other person is coming from, but when they do have the facts they can see right through a con artist.

    But at least he is not an anti-American Marxist like the current resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and he can help put this country on the right path to job creation. Obama’s successes:
    Surrounding America with Muslim (Jihadist) led countries, i.e., Egypt, Libya,”Wants the total annihilation of IsraelUnemployment rate 8.2% after three years in officeBlames Bush for everything, but offers no solutions. Anti-AmericanAnti-ChristianAnti-Success by taxing the job creators. Entitlement king and queen with their expensive, ultra rich vacations
    Sees himself as the elite and the rest of us as his slaves
    Racist
    Bigot
    Protector of the murderer of an American border patrol agent, Eric Holder
    Puppet for George Soros the Nazi sympathizer who pulls Obama’s strings. at least Romney is his own man. 
    Destroyed the America that we know and is now circumventing and destroying the second amendment by signing us over to the UN for gun control on 07/27/2012. He couldn’t get the second amendment repealed any other way so he went through America-hating UN to do it with his partner in crime Hillary Clinton.
    Government controlled healthcare where the elderly and catastrophically ill will be euthanized just like the United Kingdom, which is his pattern for Obamacare. 130,000 people euthanized  in the UK, just like dogs last year. 
    Purveyor of the most corrupt administration of all time, even worse than Clinton and that’s pushing it. 

    We should have checked Obama’s background and lies before electing a radical Marxist as President. In fact, Obama makes Karl Marx look like a conservative.

    What a fascinating thread. The hypocrisy, oh the hypocrisy. Words and phrases like “restoring love,” “courage,” “honor” are all over this website; they are ostensibly the themes of GB’s message and agenda. Apparently name-calling, resorting to ad hominem attacks, is what is meant by restoring love. And all the man did was critique a guy most conservatives don’t like or trust. Maybe all of you who hate this country–our president, our laws (healthcare, social security, for example), our congress–should take a page out of your own advice book, and leave. “if you’re not with us you’re against us,” a famous “conservative” once said.

    I’m absolutely okay with Romney care.  Let me help you to understand what Romneycare is versus Obamacare.  First of all, Romneycare was a Massachusetts statewide policy.  In my home state of Wisconsin, we have Badgercare and ANYbody can get health care services for free if they have low income or a whole lot of kids.  It’s just like Romneycare and a whole bunch of states have this.  The reason it’s okay to have a statewide health care mandate is that anyone who does not want to participate in it can obviously move to another state.  The onus is on each individual state to balance it’s own budget, independently, in order to fund their statewide health care mandate.  Obamacare on the other hand is plain and simple, taxation without representation, and it is a national mandate.  We can’t simply leave the country if we have a problem with it.  It stands in total disregard for the commerce clause of the Constitution.  Romneycare doesn’t violate the Constitution but Obamacare does.  Romneycare was approved by a state legislature.  Obamacare was not voted on AT ALL before being signed into action.  It has never been approved by anybody but HIM and John Roberts (and 4 other people).  Romneycare, as I mentioned, owes its livelihood to a balanced budget.  Obamacare is being pushed through with no coinciding plan to balance a budget.  Got it yet?

    yes, people who merely stay awake and listen to what this current president, and his administration, do and say have plenty of evidence to cite for why we cannot fathom re-electing him. Americans electing a mormon? well, heck we were collectively open minded enough to elect a negro for the first time in our nation’s history who is a muslim sympathizer (at best) and a socialist (again at  best). so why not give the patriotic successful mormon the reigns?

    Thanks Bert for that description, So even though the plans are very similar the issue/argument, is (constitutional) that it should be at the state level and not the federal level.  I understand, and to some degree agree with that.  My concern would be though do we run the risk of possible effecting other state economy because they can’t afford a state healthcare program or a bigger state or more economically diverse State and if so how does that effect the country as a whole?

    I feel its the only way I can ever filter to crap and get to the truth.

  • Anonymous

    I think you’ve missed my point here.  People jumping ship to another state in order to get free health care has NO effect on the economy.  This is because no matter where you go you NEED health care.  Every state in the nation has a duty to covers its OWN inhabitants with health care.  If your state is not economically diverse enough to balance its own budget, then said state needs to address its OWN problems and fix them all by itself.  That sounds unfair but these are the breaks.

    It does make it a federal issue, hence the inspiration for the ill-fated Affordable Care Act. The states keep begging for money from the fed, and that’s why we have these issues. Most state legislatures would like to let the federal government fund, AND tell them how to spend their money…ahhhh the tranquility of servitude alive and well today. In my state, our governor Scott Walker balanced our budget AND created a budget surplus and the backlash from the left, for his pragmatic capitalistic approach (which worked), was so intense that they foolishly tried to recall him. This was the first time in US history that a recall attempt had been unsuccessful. See the foolishness of the Left yet?

    I’ve read all of your posts and you are not an undecided voter. You are a hard core obama supporter. Just take note of your opening line here. “I think Americans will be very disapointed if he gets elected.” Sounds like you will be disapointed. You’ve fooled some people here but not me. Your entitled to your opinion. But it’s really tacky to pose as a concerned conservative. Now why dont you comment on the point I made about President Obama whispering to Dimitri Medvedev ” tell vlad I’ll have a little more flexability as a lame duck.” Or as I would decipher it. ” Tell vlad that when I get reelcted I’ll neuter Poland and hamstring Nato and forget all those defense systems in romania and turkey. Just dont give me the stink eye.” You keep using the word dogma. Here is some dogma for you. Our friends in Nato are counting on us the US. They can not handle the Russian threat. Think about how our friends in Poland feel when they heard about Obama’s comments to Medvedev. Poland stll remembers the nazis And Red Army sandwiching them in 1939. Either Obama is a f-ing retard or a traitor. But he certainly has made our friends nervous. McCain would have grabbed medvedev by the throat and told him “tell vlad to behave himself or else.” And I’m sure Romney will not placate vlad.

  • Anonymous

    I am LDS and I don’t like everything he has done (and I doubt that there would be anyone out there who I would agree with 100%), but the question is, what has Obama done for our country and would Romney undo some of what he has done? 
    1. Obama – the hero of the downtrodden illegal Mexican immigrants…willing to declare the Supreme Court “unelected” and “irrelevant”, thus justifying defiance to their ruling on Arizona’s codification of already existing law by suspending the safety of Arizona residents in favor of courting votes from those who have no legal right to vote
       a. Literally a week later, the Supreme Court is composed of people of “integrity” for clearly ruling that the illegally passed Obamacare (through a trick vote) legislation is constitutional. 
    2. On Bush tax cuts – even though it was pointed out to him by Charlie Gibson (a huge liberal by the way) in the 2008 campaign that every time taxes are raised on those who are already paying taxes, FEWER taxes are collected because of the inevitable job loss and economic suppression of small businesses, he stated that he would still raise taxes.  Why? Because its the “fair thing to do”. 
    3. Anti-Reagan prior to birth, during birth, throughout childhood, for all time, eternity, to infinity and beyond…need I say more?
    4. For disarming the American people, now says that he wants a 50 state concealed carry permit because he supports “responsible gun ownership” while, in the same week, has Hilary announce that he and she will (extraconstitutionally, of course) sign a treaty with the other countries in the UN committing to disarming all citizens of the world. After all, how the heck can the government overrun the citizens with all those pesky guns in the hands of the people?! Has no plans to ever run that one by the Senate. Oh, by the way, why would he introduce legislation for a 50-state concealed carry permit? Duh, right now, the state concealed carry databases are not available to perusal by the federal government. He is FOR a 50-state permit because:
        a. All CCW databases become FEDERAL property and can be accessed without a warrant
        b. His bill outlaws all private gun sales, including gun shows
        c. Labels every single weapon that does not have to be re-cocked in order to fire (all semi-autos, including double action revolvers) as “assault weapons” and bans them
        d. Outlaws clips that hold more than 7 bullets (kind of moronic when considered in light of letter c)
    5. Global warming – thinks Al Gore is a God and the scientists who have “definitive proof” that the United States caused global warming 65 million years ago during the Jurassic period
         a. OK, so that’s stretching it a bit, but ask yourself, why would the democrats support any legislation that makes us “compliant” with the Kyoto protocols? Duh, because there is a sum total of zero evidence that the Kyoto protocols would do anything except bankrupt the signatory countries, which is A-OK with them, so long as it bankrupts the US
        b. Why would Obama care? Same reason that every economic decision he makes is done by executive mandate and “policy directives”…because a bankrupt US could be rebuilt as a socialist utopia and what better way to achieve that than to require trillions of dollars be spent on something that would be the death knell to American industry and innovation, while vaulting other countries to the fore of the impending socialist economic meltdown…never mind science…if it’s colder, that’s because of global warming…if it’s hotter, that’s because of global warming…and it’s all the fault of the US so we deserve economic death
    6. Healthcare – enough said already
    7. Most liberal senator in US history, never saw a tax he didn’t want to impose because, “it’s the right thing to do”.
    8. Worked for ACORN (after all, 12-yr-old girls and boys deserve to be pimped out just like their adult counterparts), shunts money and protection to ACORN and Planned Parenthood without legislation…in fact in DEFIANCE of legislation because “Republicans hate women and want them all to die”.

    So, while Romney has flip-flopped on some issues, it’s hard to envision him believing that his personal existence is a mandate to destroy the constitution. Every move and statement that Barack Obama has made drips with sarcasm and derision about “liberty” and the rights of individuals. He fully intends to undermine every principal of this nation’s founding and that’s not speculation, it’s fact.  Read his books. They may have cool sounding titles, but what’s in them is insane. If only he were like most liberals…irrelevant and moronic (think Occupy dipsticks screaming that we need to destroy all corporations while holding an iPhone and MacBook Pro, while wearing designer clothing that mommy and daddy paid for and everyone but them should have to pay for their educations). Unfortunately, where he has been unable to undermine the constitution, he simply takes advantage of his media advantage and declares that it is his responsibility to do the job that Congress and the Supreme Court are not doing. God bless America, but isn’t that inspiring? Finally, someone willing to set aside the law in order to do us the favor of depriving us of our liberty because nobody else would do it.  That anyone, including a man such as Spike Lee, could, in good conscience, vote for Barack Obama or worse, fail to exercise their intelligence by foregoing their right to vote, rather than vote for a Mormon, then they deserve every shackle added to their freedom. Call it what you will, it is naked bigotry.  Who cares if the media thinks it’s okay? Since when do they determine the morality of a thinking Christian? Unfortunately, if the rest of us allow it to happen without denouncing it for exactly what it is, then WE deserve it as well.

    Very Well said.  Actually I have found nothing offensive about Romney, his money or his success…Most of us aren’t rich, we are hard working mIddle Class, but we realize that people with money create jobs and businesses that employ all of us.  It is not bad to earn a profit, its how you use it to help others, and he didn’t even take a salary some of the places he worked.   He is a capable leader who is willing to make some hard decisions and the people know that there are tough times ahead, but leadership makes a difference, and Romney has the know how to put Humpty Dumpty back together again.  We like him.

    Do you really think people will be happy under a Marxist Government that has total control over everything in your life and your children’s futures.  I think people who vote for this President have a Death Wish!

    No, I just feel that they’ll end up just as disappointed under Romney.

    While ministering and advocating for the homeless in San Diego and Contra Costa County I found no Mormon, no Seventh Day Adventist, no Amish, no Japanese or Chinese, no Jew – not anyone who’s religion and family culture required something (except tithing) from their constituencies. Only Protestants, Catholics and those of no religion at all dominate the homeless population.

    I dont hate health care, social security for example. Obamacare has never existed before and it has yet to be implemented. No the one who hates this country is Obama. And when he circumvents the rule of law and acts against a congress that is hostile to him, you sychophants cheer him on. It’s obvious you dont love America and you would like it to be Amerika. Because you too are a commie punk. Your last line says it all.

    This whole “Obama hates America” thing is just silly. Obama hasn’t done anything that any of his four predecessors did not do. You may hate his policies, feel they haven’t worked, but he’s just another neoliberal politician in bed with wall street and corporate America. It’s so funny how worked up you get in defense of Romney, like he is somehow any different. Of all the potential GOP nominees, he is the most like Obama. As recently as 10 years ago Romney proudly and publicly voiced positions that contradict where he stands today. And over the last 20 years he has changed his mind on everything from abortion to stimulus bills to healthcare, etc.

    Obama has not been nor will ever be as far left as your wildest fantasies would have it, and Romney isn’t as far right as you so desperately hope. The only way we emerged from the last major depression was through the ultimate act of Big government: total war.

    God has switched teams. The course of empire is headed back east. Time marches on.

    Your’e a total ninny. Who gives a crap about all of this minutia your spouting? Tell us, Are his policies working? And who cares what retards like you think of Romney. He is the likely GOP nominee. If hillary had been the nominee 4 years ago she’d be the horse you backed.( an old nag I might add). But Obama got the nomination and you backed him, Because thats what good communists do they vote for communists. Were Republicans ans if Romney is the nominee we’ll vote for him. You know your not going to change any minds here your simply here to stick your fingers in someones eye. So if you get called a commie pinko blowhard, just take it like a man. Doubtful though you are able to do that. Blowhard.

    You crack me up. You have nothing of substance to say. You just throw in a few run on sentences in between “commie” and “blowhard.” Intelligent disagreements(discussions) can and do occur on this website.
    When you all nominated Romney, you proved you don’t really hate Obama as much as you want everyone to think. Nominating someone like santorum would have been a clear mandate against Obama.

    I’m not trying to poke any eyes out. It’s fun and enlightening to hear others’ perspectives.

    All that’s solid melts into air.

    Balderdash. You replied to a comment I made to another bigmouth Obama boot licker. Now would you care to answer the question that he would not? Do you remember the question? It’s full of substance. And what exciting tidbits have you brought to the conversation? How have you livened up the party? So what’s your take on the Medvedev affair? And btw. This video was about spike lee’s religious bigotry. So what’s your take? I’ve posted mine.

    But he will vote for a communist?  I don’t get it.  But that’s why I would never give a dime to anything of Spike Lee’s companies.  Obama or Mormon?  Really, he should have said Commie or Romney.
