Re: “The Tucson Weekly 2012 Endorsements

We must rejoice in our country's victory now that Obama is HNIC for four more years. Fear and deceit lost. Thank you Jesus!

Re: “The 'Tucson Weekly' Endorsements Recap

They are just endorsements. Read your propositions. Make decisions based on what you think will be the best choices for your self and for your family. Nothing against republicans or war. I do believe how ever that we should take care of Americans and not let the poor die after they reach $6000 in health care on a voucher program. Weed out the sick and poor.

Djklk: We first published the endorsements on Oct. 11, which was the first day of early voting. Please try to pay attention in the future.

There sure are a lot of angry people out there. For all that anger, the only thing y'all have changed is your blood pressure. The election will be what it is and the world will end or it won't, regardless of who is elected. No big. Chill, yo.

Re: “The Tucson Weekly 2012 Endorsements

Interested guy......don't mistake interested as being informed. You're as blind of a partisan hack as one runs across. You're also what's wrong with this country and you're evened out by those who think opposite as you but support just as blindly.

This country is so F'd.

Re: “The Tucson Weekly 2012 Endorsements

I do wonder why the weekly left out of consideration the Green and Libertarian parties, I especially Dave Croteau, the "Peace Keeping Option" for Pima County Sheriff. I believe we need to incarcerate less and he would bring us in that direction.

Re: “The 'Tucson Weekly' Endorsements Recap

Per the usual in Tucson, there is seemingly only 1 political party. Nice job on your token Republican, however. You guys really stuck your necks out with these endorsements!

Re: “The Tucson Weekly 2012 Endorsements

Rip Harvest, I agree with your list. I am voting for Obama because I believe he does create an in-road that may lead to more parties having a chance. I know, Romney's campaign looked rigged to lose but created to give a false dichotomy. A fictional account of a campaign like his would have been too unbelievable. Yet, I do think Obama is sincere, but fooled. I think he would take Jill Stein seriously, as well as all his promises from past, if we make him. I do not think we stand a chance with Romney. I don't feel I can vote purity, This election.

Re: “The Tucson Weekly 2012 Endorsements

The Weekly has completely misunderstands Proposition 121 since its inception.

It is only a page and a half it rather than accept this spin. It allows you the voters, not the political parties, to decide who represents you. In America, it is one person, one vote, NOT one party one vote.

Its opponents define it - anonymous 1/2 million dollars through Americans for Responsible Leadership, Russell Pearce (who calls it "un-American"), and party bosses from both sides of the aisle. The Courts have ORDER the opponents disclose their donors and, on the eve of the election, THEY REFUSE and have appealed. This means that you will NOT know who sponsored the NO on 121 campaign until AFTER the election.

Might this threaten their strangle hold on your limited, often single, choices on the ballot. You bet!

Re: “The 'Tucson Weekly' Endorsements Recap

I supported 204 because it taxes all of us equally with no exception, you have a dollar to spend you pay tax, no rich no poor you pay tax. At the Federal level today 47% of the people pay ZERO tax, 204 makes everyone pay tax, rich or poor. If you are not paying tax why not be for the "rich guy" to be taxed more and more, this allows the poor to pay some more tax, at some point they also will get tired of abusive taxation.

I support 204 because it taxes the poor! lol Dummies didn't you think about what you were doing? Try to get that next penny this way! The best thing we can do for the poor and middle class is to provide cheap energy, the Obama Administration has failed doing this and has harmed the poor and middle class more than any other Administration in history, not just with the biggest tax increase on the middle class in history Obamacare, but with the tax of energy costs that have doubled. They are forcing their "green" agenda on the poor and middle class by making it too expensive to use energy, shameful leadership protected by a mute media!

Re: “The 'Tucson Weekly' Endorsements Recap

In a recent discussion a young liberal mentioned that Republicans get us into wars, the fact is that war has shaped this earth away from what appears to be man’s penchant for dominance over those that allow themselves to be dominated. A young Libertarian mentioned that Ron Paul was against war that’s why he supported him, I mentioned did you know when asked if he would have, if President fought the Civil War and Ron Paul loudly claimed “hell no!” What we know is that war created an anti-Bush sentiment in our media, Bush himself tried to move to the Middle, a laugh, OK as usual the left’s lack of knowledge leads them to react in ways that are inappropriate reinforced in their own intellectual clowders. Bush signed the Modernization of Medicare Act; this unfunded deficit spending was viewed by the Conservatives as blasphemy, the Democrats silently approved, Bush for the FIRST TIME in our countries history signed monetary support for Federally funding Embryonic Stem Cell research funding Clinton refused to sign twice, again to the chagrin of the Conservatives who were incensed by this move toward the middle, this bipartisanship that had been successful for Clinton, lacked support from across the aisle as the media lied and distorted in a blatant attempt to destroy President Bush.

The move to the middle had proven disastrous for the Bush Administration, what is often forgotten is that Clinton passed forward a recession to Bush, poll the liberals and they all are certain that Clinton past forward a booming economy, wrong again. The Clinton recession as it is called ended the November after Bush took office. Well this recession wasn’t as bad as the Bush recession he passed forward to Obama; OK let’s review why it wasn’t! Because the better the economy is the further it has to fall, mediocre recession comes from mediocre economy, a big recession follows an economic boom, Bush boomed the economy and passed forward a bigger recession. Now ask a liberal when the Bush recession ended? They put their pom-poms down and count on their toes then look up and say it isn’t over. Well the truth is that the Bush recession ended June 2009. What we are experiencing is an Obama recovery that is less than adequate!

Why did the Clinton Presidency have success? Bipartisanship, we worked together, Newt Gingrich-Bill Clinton, Tip O’Neil – Ronald Reagan, this bipartisanship fell apart during the Bush years. Now we can point fingers, I showed two major attempts to get the Democrats on board above, politicians trying to separate themselves from an unpopular war, a media that was providing a smoke screen for them to do so, dishonesty and unaccountability created a divisive climate that carried on into the Obama-McCain 2008 Presidential campaign. The Obama campaign sold us a message we know could be successful, bipartisanship, CHANGE created by forging agreements, what we got was division, the media still providing a smoke screen from failures, absolute power corrupted a man who let himself become so.

The key to Obama retaining his presidency is maintaining our division; he is willing to tear us apart for ever as long as his reward is retaining power. I watched this AM our President look America in the eye and tell us to vote for revenge? I am sorry but WTF? Revenge is the man’s message. Well I have watched 2016 so I know where he is coming from, an anti-colonial view, where what our forefathers have done isn’t justified because of the bad, I understand but I don’t agree. Revenge is why you should go vote on Tuesday? Revenge against whom? Well I feel the crosshairs, my President is telling his supporters to vote for revenge against me, my Dad, my Grandfather, our forefathers!
Revenge, is what our president expects to keep him in office, he says” I give myself an incomplete grade for my first four years”, a man who says “don’t judge me on what I did in my first four years, think about what I am going to do in my next four years!” More HOPE peddling I guess.

Division has never resulted in a boom for the USA our best years are when we are bipartisan, Obama wants revenge,he says the Republicans will come around when I am reelected? Really? Mitt Romney by contrast has been bipartisan, he has had success in both business and government because he can work with those at the table, whoever they are. That’s a skill our President Obama has clearly shown us he doesn’t have nor does he care to learn, REVENGE is his new mantra, you have to ask yourself a simple question, revenge against who and for what purpose. Mitt Romney offers the contrast he said “Vote for the love of your country not revenge.”

Mitt has been accused of being a flip-flopper, to me what I know is that you either have fixed positions you defend at all costs or you have positions that as you grow and learn and understand where you are going can be achieved without absolute power only by compromise, bipartisanship requires everyone to be able to flip-flop, compromise is synonymous with flip-flop, this isn’t about which Mitt has shown up today, this is about a Mitt that comes to the table ready to forward the situation with deal making, bipartisanship, compromise or as it is known by those who have fixed uncompromising positions flip-flopping.

Mitt Romney will be bipartisan and requests that you vote for love of your country, President Obama says he will not compromise and the Republicans will come around, vote for revenge.

Revenge or love of country pretty much sums up your choice on Tuesday!

Pima College Board recommendations - Sylvia Lee and Richard Fridena all day long. I have met Betts Putman Hidalgo and Cam Juarez. All are hard working and honest and worthy of your vote.
