<Uqbar> the [GOP] [campaign] in a nutshell: ‘We’re not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact-checkers’ http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2012/08/were-not-going-to-let-our-campaign-be-dictated-by-fact-checkers/261674/
If an American woman in uniform is raped and becomes pregnant, Congress bars Tricare military insurance from paying for an abortion.
If an American woman in the Peace Corps becomes pregnant, Congress bars coverage of an abortion — and there is no explicit exception even if she is raped or her life is in danger.
When teenagers in places like Darfur, Congo or Somalia survive gang rapes, aid organizations cannot use American funds to provide an abortion.
A record number of states have curbed abortions in the last two years. According to the Guttmacher Institute, which follows reproductive health, 55 percent of American women of reproductive age now live in one of the 26 states deemed “hostile to abortion rights.”
The Republican campaign platform denounces contraceptive education in schools. Instead, it advises kids to abstain from sex until marriage.
This is the national policy chairman of the Young Republican National Federation, Jason B. Whitman, calling public unions “leeches” in a Wisconsin-related debate with one of our reporters. He went on to clarify that he didn’t mean rank-and-file workers, but their “Marxist thug leadership.” Oh, right. Thanks!
This week (Mitt Romney) was attacking Obama about ‘our failing educational system.’ (And) he has a point: I mean, we are graduating millions of people in this country who are so lacking in basic analytical skills, they are considering voting for Mitt Romney.
Via Kevin Drum:
As the chart [above] shows, conservatives are right to believe that Romney isn’t to be trusted. Sure, he lowers tax rates on millionaires by 9 percentage points, and you may think that’s a pretty sweet deal for the rich. But come on. Newt Gingrich would lower them by 24 percentage points. (No, that’s not a typo.) Rick Perry lowers them by 20 percentage points. Herman Cain lowers them by 15 points. Frankly, Romney is hardly even trying here.
Also, except for 9-9-9, all these plans show no or little tax cut for the lowest marginal rates. Stay classy!
Diversity creates conflict. If we celebrate diversity, we create conflict.
In Obama’s America, this is what happens to kids who try to celebrate Christmas. That’s according to Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who accuses the president of waging a “war on religion” in a new campaign ad. Uh, what?
