Has Romney stated who he would replace Helicopter Ben with? I found quotes saying he would replace him, but not who with. Or is that another one of those things he won't tell us until after he is elected? (just trust him)



Ben Bernanke's commitment expires January 2014, but I assume he can be fired by the new administration at any time.

He's just taking a page from Obama; "lets pass it first then we will find out whats in it".

Seriously though; The top of the short list is Glenn Hubbard.

This sums up the message from the democratic convention.


Quoting 
The system is rigged. America is unjust. Opportunity is dead. You didn’t build that.

Dammit, where’s mine?

Oh, and Republicans are the people who rigged the system. They’re trying to take away your rights to vote, to health care, to education, to housing. They hate women, gays and immigrants. They don’t pay their fair share and they’re un-American.

Barack Obama lights candles, Mitt Romney spreads darkness, and Usama bin Laden is dead.

Don’t agree? You’re not patriotic.

The democrats talk about how caring and tolerant they are yet when you read the above statement it is filled with hate and intolerance. The worst part is this what they actually believe! They say they want a united America but they are the first to point out the guy next to you makes more than you and should be despised for it. They are are the first ones to call you a racist because you didnt vote for the first black president. They are the first to say you hate women then have Bill Clinton, the man who cheated on his wife in the oval office with an intern come to the convention to be a key note speaker. If case you have forgotten the National Organization of Women didn't even protest when this happened because he was not a republican. Sandra Fluke did you applaud when Bill Clinton spoke or did you protest?

Then theres you didnt pay your fair share.Of course this only applies to a select group of the population. 50% of people who are eligible to pay federal tax do not. Yet they never mention these people. Just the millionaires and billionaires making 250,000 or more.

Then this past week Wasserman Schultz lied twice about what she had said during a democratic training session. She was caught when the audio came out of her exact words. Was there any protest? Was there a call from Obama to for her to apologize for lying? Was there a call to step down? Of course not. Democrats it seems have a free pass to lie or exaggerate. She must took her queue from the President Obama who said the private sector was doing just fine. Can you imagine what would happen if a republican was caught in such a lie?

Then a representative of the Obama's team called Romney a felon. There was audio and everything. When Obama was question about this he flat out said no one on my team called Romney a felon. This was a straight up lie yet no one called him on it.

Would anyone want to work for these people? They would stab you in the back if it was to their advantage. How about a role model for your children? Is lying and blaming everyone for your problems the way you were raised? Are these the morals you instill in your children?

The democratic party is running a popularity contest. There motto. Destroy or marginalize and label the opposition at any cost. I feel like we are in high school again. If they did these things in high school they would be expelled for being a bully but in political world they are put on pedestal and labeled as caring.

The America I grew up in is nearly gone. I am horrified for my what my son may have to grow up in. I am embarrassed for not doing more to prevent it.

Uh, I would say he did it because he loves women

Personally, I would pay to have Clinton back. I don't care how many affairs he has, I voted for him to run the country. He can go have orgies between cabinet meetings, as long as he gets the job done that I hired him for.

I should be the role model and moral compass for my children.

I refuse to vote for someone based on my perception of weather or not he will be good for the economy. I firmly believe that only a moral people can remain free. Therefore I vote only for those persons on either side of the isle that reflect my personal moral values. Chief among those is the issue of life. Does a society have the right to take the life of another person? There are a few ways a society takes life. 1. War. 2. Execution (murder by the state). 3 Abortion. 4. Murder by civilian.

I believe that if a person values human life lightly, all other issues are irrelevant. Further I believe if he/she under values human life, all the other freedoms so expressly delineated the Declaration and in the Constitution will be fair game for destruction. For if human life is not valuable, can any other virtue or freedom be deemed valuable enough to protect.

I'm sorry if that makes me an extremist but I know what I believe and am willing to stand by it.

For this reason alone, I am not terribly impressed with any of the current choices at this point. Nor have I been a huge fan of most of the choices in recent memory.

I will vote for the lessor of two evils in this case and pray it doesn't bite me in the ass.

I used to be pro war if it was "just", pro execution if it was warranted and pro life in the case of abortion. Now I'm just pro life in all its forms.....

Agree with this - though Clinton caught the tail-wind of luck with the internet boom.

I remember Ross Perot's warning of a "great sucking sound" of jobs leaving the US if NAFTA passed. He was right, but that was only the beginning.

Politicians are generally immoral by definition. It's almost a requirement in the job description, with few exceptions, so anyone claiming the moral high-ground is usually lying to get your vote.

I don't think you're alone. I think many if not most take this position. A friend of mine votes republican because he feels they are not anti guns.

I also think if you are looking for moral people in politics then you will be looking forever.

I also don't feel the people are immoral just because they choose to have an abortion. I don't think it make someone anti-life just because they chose to have an abortion. They may be irresponsible, or ignorant, or uneducated, but should there be laws in this world that force someone to carry out a pregnancy?

...and you feel this is because of the democrats or Obama? You don't think that G. W. Bush has anything to do with what we are facing today. It's probably not even Bush, but Chaney. I'm horrified too, that Bush was elected twice, albeit they probably cheated the second time around.

There has been a lot in the news about the republicans trying to change the voting hours in districts that would most likely vote for Obama. These are districts where people can't leave work in time, or may get in trouble for leaving work, or may need to vote on the weekend. Is this a fact or is it a fabrication? I don't know, I'm asking, but if its true, you certainly have to wonder what kind of people they are.
