Here they go again. The Republicans have manufactured a “controversy”. Get used to it folks. This is one of the Republican tactics: Manufacture controversies to distract the people away from their own failings and disastrous policies. You will see these controversies come fast and furious until November. The Republicans cannot allow the American people to know what they are actually all about because they will be soundly rejected.
Hilary Rosen, a Democratic strategist on CNN, made a remark about Ann Romney. The context for the statement was that Mitt Romney has said over and over again on the campaign trail that his wife tells him what women want. He has said that she has told him that women don’t care about contraception; they care about the economy,

The Republican Party has moved so far to the right during the past couple of decades that if you were to compare the Republican Party to Fascism, you will see the difference between the two is in name only.
1. Powerful and continuing expressions of nationalism. From the prominent displays of flags and bunting to the ubiquitous lapel pins, the fervor to show patriotic nationalism, both on the part of the regime itself and of citizens caught up in its frenzy, was always obvious. Catchy slogans, pride in the military, and demands for unity were common themes in expressing this nationalism. It was usually coupled with a suspicion of things foreign that often bordered on xenophobia.
This has been awhile in the coming. The Democratic Party has abandoned me along with millions of others as they have moved to the right over the years.
What do I base this on? That’s easy. Almost every bill passed in the past four years has been a Republican position. Affordable Health Care Act? A Republican idea from the 1990s. The individual mandate? Another Republican idea from the late 1990s.
I didn’t like the Republican Party and what they were doing in the 1990s and I certainly don’t like them now, even though they have labeled themselves, “Democrats”.
The Republicans insist they want to take this country back, though they never say from whom or what. However, if you listen closely to what they say, they will tell you precisely where they want the country to be.
The Republican Party and the conservatives in this country want to deregulate almost everything. That is what they do. Get rid of regulations and cut taxes for the rich and for corporations.

The Republican leadership and other conservatives have come out against this ad. (Republicans See Politics in Chrysler Super Bowl Ad) They think it is some type of plot from the Democrats. The commercial is about hope in America and how we can make things better in this country if we come together. Why is the Republican leadership against this ad? Is it too hopeful? Or is it that is reminds Americans that if we had allowed what the Republican Party wanted, we would no longer have an auto industry in this country? Instead, President Obama, at great political risk, loaned GM and Chrysler money and saved literally millions of jobs.
Not everything should be dealt with on a political level. People’s health is one of those things.
