Mitt Romney Makes Birth Certificate Joke

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on August 25, 2012


Comment: Birth certificate issue could not be relevant and strong point in this presidency war. There are lots of important issues from national and global point of views. If this is relevant, action must betaken against Obama.

Mitt Romney made a joke about his birth certificate at a rally in Commerce, Mich. on Friday.

Speaking about his Michigan roots, he said, “No one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place that we were born and raised.”

The joke was received with hearty applause by the audience. Still, it was awkward for Romney to play on the birther conspiracies that have plagued Barack Obama since he ran for president in 2008 and persisted even after he released his “long-form” birth certificate in 2011.

The Obama campaign quickly responded, with spokesman Ben LaBolt saying that Romney was embracing the most extreme elements in the conservative movement.

“Throughout this campaign, Governor Romney has embraced the most strident voices in his party instead of standing up to them,” he said. “It’s one thing to give the stage in Tampa to Donald Trump, Sheriff Arpaio, and Kris Kobach. But Governor Romney’s decision to directly enlist himself in the birther movement should give pause to any rational voter across America.” Read the rest of this entry »

Mitt Romney: Iran Strike ‘On The Table’ If I Were President

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on July 30, 2012

JERUSALEM — Standing on Israeli soil, U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Sunday declared Jerusalem to be the capital of the Jewish state and said the United States has “a solemn duty and a moral imperative” to block Iran from achieving nuclear weapons capability.

“Make no mistake, the ayatollahs in Iran are testing our moral defenses. They want to know who will object and who will look the other way,” he said. “We will not look away nor will our country ever look away from our passion and commitment to Israel.”

The presidential election hovered over the speech. The Old City formed a made-for-television backdrop behind Romney, while some of his campaign donors listened in the audience.

Romney’s declaration that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital was matter-of-fact and in keeping with claims made by Israeli governments for decades, even though the United States, like other nations, maintains its embassy in Tel Aviv. Read the rest of this entry »

Ann Romney: We’ve Given ‘All You People Need To Know’ About Family Finances

Ann Romney

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney’s wife is reinforcing her husband’s refusal to make public several years of tax returns, telling ABC News “we’ve given all you people need to know” about the family’s finances.

“You know, you should really look at where Mitt has led his life, and where he’s been financially,” she said in her interview with Robin Roberts. “He’s a very generous person. We give 10 percent of our income to our church every year. Do you think that is the kind of person that is trying to hide things, or do things? No. He is so good about it. Then, when he was governor of Massachusetts, didn’t take a salary in the four years.”

Roberts pressed: “Why not show that, then?” and reasoned that people could “move on” if her husband released his returns.

Romney responded, “Because there are so many things that will be open again for more attack… and that’s really,  that’s just the answer. And we’ve given all you people need to know and understand about our financial situation and about how we live our life. And so, the election, again, will not be decided on that. It will be decided on who is gonna turn the economy around and how are jobs gonna come back to America.”

She also said she thinks the Obama campaign’s attacks on her husband have been “beneath the dignity of the presidency.” And she said people will decide whom to vote for based on whether their lives would be better under Mitt Romney than President Barack Obama. Read the rest of this entry »

Obama Discusses His ‘Biggest Mistake In Office (VIDEO)

Obama Biggest Mistake

In an excerpt of an exclusive interview that will air Sunday night on CBS, President Obama spoke at length about what he sees as the most important misstep he has made in office.

“What do you think the lesson has been that might guarantee success in the second term, if that happened?” interviewer Charlie Rose asked Obama. He responded:

“The mistake of my first term —a couple of years — was thinking that this job was just about getting the policy right. And that’s important, but the nature of this office is also to tell a story to the American people that gives them a sense of unity and purpose and optimism, especially during tough times. It’s funny, when I ran, people said, ‘Well, he can give a great speech, but can he actually manage the job?’ And then in my first two years, I think the notion was, “Well, you know, he’s been juggling and managing a lot of stuff, but where’s the story that tells us where he’s going?’ And I think that was a legitimate criticism.”

After the soaring rhetoric that marked his historic 2008 campaign, Obama has often been criticized, mostly by his liberal base, for a failure to communicate effectivelywith the American public. The way the Romney campaign sees it, though, that’s hardly the president’s biggest problem. It released a statement in response to Obama’s remarks: Read the rest of this entry »

Obama: JPMorgan Disaster Shows ‘Why Wall Street Reform Is So Important’

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on May 15, 2012


Comment: We need reform to bring new system to accommodate to all and not just to replace person:

President Barack Obama discussed JPMorgan Chase’s $2 billion loss on Monday, saying the bank’s massive failure proves why Wall Street reform is necessary.

“JPMorgan is one of the best-managed banks there is,” Obama said during an interview on ABC’s “The View”, which will air on Tuesday. “Jamie Dimon, the head of it, is one of the smartest bankers we got, and they still lost $2 billion and counting.”

Dimon, who appeared on NBC’s “Meet The Press” Sunday, told host David Gregory he had been “dead wrong” to dismiss concerns about the banks questionable trades. Read the rest of this entry »

Mitt Romney On Climate Change: ‘The World Is Getting Warmer… Humans Have Contributed’

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on June 4, 2011


Since the late 1800′s, the global average temperatur­e has increased about 0.4 to 0.8 degrees C. Current pollution trends put us on a path to 6°C of warming this century when 4°C or more would trigger the breakdown of civilizati­on as we know it. To be closer to 2°C than 4°C we need to make global emissions start to decline before 2020. Scientists worry that human societies and natural ecosystems might not adapt to rapid climate changes. As an ecosystem consists of the living organisms and physical environmen­t in a particular area, global warming could cause much harm. Countries throughout the world, therefore, drafted an agreement called the Kyoto Protocol to help limit it. Politician­s and scientists agree we must limit global warming to less than 2°C to prevent runaway climate change. The coming decade will see whether humanity is capable of overcoming a complex web of environmen­tal problems that pose an existentia­l threat to civilizati­on.: http://ram­kshrestha.­wordpress.­com/2011/0­3/27/overc­oming-new-­decade-cha­llenges/
