Presidential Election 2012 - #4332 - Des Moines, Iowa Register Endorsement: Mitt Romney Offers a Fresh Economic Vision (2) Obama's Job Approval Drops 7 Points in 3 Days - CNS News (3) Obama's Second-Term Agenda: Poison for Suburban Women - American Thinker

Des Moines, Iowa Register Endorsement: Mitt Romney Offers a Fresh Economic Vision - Ten months ago this newspaper endorsed former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney for the Republican nomination for president. An overarching consideration was which of the party’s candidates could we see occupying the White House, and there was no question that Romney was qualified for the job. Now, in the closing days of the general election campaign, the question is which of the two contenders deserves to be the next president of the United States...... The Register’s editorial board, as it should, had a vigorous debate over this endorsement. Our discussion repeatedly circled back to the nation’s single most important challenge: pulling the economy out of the doldrums, getting more Americans back in the workforce in meaningful jobs with promising futures, and getting the federal government on a track to balance the budget in a bipartisan manner that the country demands. Which candidate could forge the compromises in Congress to achieve these goals? When the question is framed in those terms, Mitt Romney emerges the stronger candidate.  Read more.........

Obama's Job Approval Drops 7 Points in 3 Days - CNS News - In the most precipitous decline it has seen in more than a year, President Barack Obama's job approval rating has dropped 7 points in three days, according to Gallup. In the three-day period ending on Oct. 23, says Gallup, 53 percent said they approved of the job Obama was doing and 42 percent said they did not. On Oct. 24, that dropped to 51 percent who said they approved and 44 percent who said they do not. On Oct. 25, it dropped again to 48 percent who said they approved and 47 percent who said they do not. On Oct. 26, it dropped yet again to 46 percent who said they approved and 49 percent who said they did not. In May 2011, Obama's approval dropped 7 points in four days, sliding from 53 percent on May 24 to 46 percent on May 28.

Obama's Second-Term Agenda: Poison for Suburban Women - American Thinker -  American voRadNet, the country's largest imaging and diagnostic company, comments in its most recent investor presentation that mammogram volumes have been adversely affected by the weak economy and a "government taskforce changing the recommended age from 40+ to 50+." The government taskforce comment is meaningful. It means that during President Obama's first term, an HHS-supported advisory board recommended that women's health care be rationed. This is the same entity that more recently recommended that men do without the PSA test, the standard prostate cancer screening procedure. Admittedly, this is a different HHS-supported independent advisory board, but maybe Mitt Romney was on to something when he voiced concern about ObamaCare rationing our health care through its own IPAB. RadNet's comment about government's negative impact on mammogram volumes certainly clears the fog created by the Obama campaign's relentless suggestion of a Republican "war on women." Seen in this light, President Obama's "war on women" scare tactics are a smokescreen, particularly if women have already had their mammograms rationed. Read more......
