    ... women who are very pro-choice because they remember a time when access to birth control and certain medical procedures were difficult, if not impossible, to obtain, say they don't believe Romney would do anything to overturn Roe v. Wade. Despite him being on MTP just a few short weeks ago saying he would nominate judges who would overturn Roe at the Federal level, they don't actually think he would do it! I've had this backed up by an NPR piece done with students in Colorado, one of them a young Republican woman who is also pro-choice who said she felt like Democrats were just trying to scare women into voting for them and that Mitt Romney wouldn't try to take her rights away.

    It makes no sense! Why wouldn't you believe him when he's telling you what he'll do? Then again, his positions change so often as multiple-choice Mitt, maybe people are able to fool themselves by selecting what they want to believe and simply disregarding the rest.

    •  Sure is strange how people believe what they want (3+ / 0-)

      to believe and ignore all evidence to the contrary.

    •  People are suffering. (0+ / 0-)

      And many of these people are hoping to Jeebus that a change in the president's office will mean a change in their lives.  Personally, I do believe a change in the president's office WILL mean a change in people's lives...
      ...more financial risk with one's healthcare
      ...more restrictions on women;s reproductive care
      ...more tax breaks for the wealthy
      ...more burden on the middle class
      ...more war if Iran doesn't kiss the ring of the new president
      ...more terrorist acts in this country
      ...more, gawd, it will be crap!
      I think those who are suffering so significantly can't see that the Republics didn;t do anything to help them in their troubles while they controlled legislatures throughout the country and in Washington.   They don't see that the  Republics only voted for more restrictions on individual liberties and obstructed any legislation to grow the economy because it might cost the 1%, um, 1% or so.

      Why do people who call you RETARDED get elected to office? HMMM?
