Of course, his public mouthpiece denies that there was any sort of ulterior motive revolving around this decision. He stated that the Obama administration was still dedicated to helping the LGBT community, regardless of the President’s decision on this particular act.
Currently, abortion is legal to the 12th week. This bill would ban it completely except for special cases. Medical emergencies are one of these special cases, as are incidents where the family has a history of genetic diseases. Another case, and one that seems quite odd to me personally, is when the father of the unborn child is dead. Apparently, in the Ukraine a single mother is not looked upon very highly.
She seems to find herself in quite a few of her own sticky situations regarding race.
Mitt Romney has two degrees from Harvard University and he also had a very successful career running Bain Capital. It would be fair to assume then that he likes to be the best at what he does and also surround himself with the best and the brightest. It seems to be the case because he has put together a team of all-star economic advisers that include renowned economist Gregory Mankiw and the dean of Columbia Business School Glenn Hubbard.
Rosen later apologized, but the issue had already established itself as a national talking point. Are stay-at-home moms working moms? Which political party represents a platform that is more mom-friendly? How are economic issues and a woman's parenting decisions related?
While it is generally considered poor form to drag political spouses and children into policy debates, since the media has taken off with this issue, I find myself wishing someone would come out with more information about exactly what Mrs. Romney's life as a stay-at-home-mom was like. It seems to me that a mother who spent much of her life changing diapers, making family budgets, grocery shopping, and attending PTA meetings would be a more valuable messenger of the average mother's concerns than a mother who spent much of her life delegating these tasks to the full time household help.
According to federal filings, Obama has increased the amount of money for his campaign in March by bringing in $53M. This is more than the $45M that he brought in the previous month of February and he is actually on track to hit the unprecedented $750M that he was able to raise in the presidential race of 2008.
All this is very important for the Obama campaign when you take into account the fact that Mitt Romney is actually getting more traction among voters according to a poll that was conducted by Reuters/Ipsos. Romney has narrowed the lead that Obama had on him after it has become evident to voters that Romney will be the nominee for the GOP.
