Comments on: Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can’t Use: ‘Friday Night Lights’ Director Disses Romney http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/10/clear-eyes-full-hearts-cant-use-friday-night-lights-director-disses-romney/ The latest Politics news and blog posts from ABC News contributors and bloggers including Jake Tapper, George Stephanopoulos and more.

I'm glad that the writer and other staff associated with FNL are speaking out against Romney. It's important b/c viewers of FNL might think that the producers, director, writers and actors are for Romney which could sway voters. The Producer (who is a woman) and some of the female actors wrote an excellent op-ed slamming Romney and showing their support for Obama. Why? Because "Obama more accurately embodies the phrase Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can't Lose." "It was a rallying cry of hope and optimism in a community where everyone had a fair shot — no matter their background, no matter their parents, no matter their gender. And no matter their politics." “In fact, it is President Obama who has shown his values to be more closely aligned with those represented by the phrase.” “Dillon [the fictional town where 'FNL' is set] is a classic American town filled with hard-working, middle-class Americans, who just want to lead productive, healthy lives. And the women we represented on the show — the women we are in real life — are like the millions of women across the nation. Women who want to make our own health care decisions. Women who want to earn equal pay for the work we do. Women who want affordable health care. OBAMA?BIDEN 2012! Clear eyes, full pocketbooks – that should be the Romney mantra.

Do Republicans have full hearts for others when they slash women's health clinics funding. Is Full Hearts the phrase to consider when Republicans chop funding for meals on wheels so old crippled folks loose their one hot meal a day. Republicans are like little kids going thru the terrible twos. They have no full heart to share, they see a goody and what is the word the little kids sy? = "MINE" Mine, So Republicans are like the joke about a richcoal mine owner divorcing their poor spouse. Like the rich coal mine owner the Republicans get the mine, and the poor get the shaft. REPUBLICANS AND FULL HEARTS - TOTAL POLITICAL FICTION. CLEAR EYES, FULL HEARTS????? – Republican propaganda.

Isn't that a clear example of the shallow values that keep voters divided and also keeps them making destructive choices? Obama hasn't followed through on his pie-in-the-sky campaign promises (not all of them), but his rock-star status was always a distraction from what voters should actually care about. I guess he tied his own noose with his soaring rhetoric. So what would you expect from the electorate but to change alliances like fickle, channel-surfing, perpetual teenagers? Also the writing in this article is atrocious. So, the author of the book, Bissinger, is going to vote Romney because Obama doesn’t have the cult of personality he did in ’08?

What do you think Obama's been doing? SS payments were frozen for two years, while Medicare payments (withdrawels for SS) were increased drastically. I earn far less in Social Security payments now, then I earned four years ago. Love you lib/dems who think Romney will gut the social security system. What do you think Obama’s been doing?

In fact, politics is "fact" that humans are not evolving into better creatures. I wish all American people who simply hate both parties or at least look at them both through skeptical eyes. You would be surprised at how your political robotic mind which has been programmed by your party and the media is suddenly open to new ideas and ways of trying to actually look at facts and not spin. Try it - it works. As for the media - they have left their snarky ways that delved into the antis of both parties and reported to the American people in a nonpolitical way that helped shape both parties into tip toeing around the media sharks - that's the way it should be.

This will be an Obama second term if romney wins too. Only we won't have any legs, or any money. Because liberal republicans are not proven. Romneys ideas are for a new embrace of communist rule by the American right. Same old same old, but supposedly he's republican too. I see why he is winning now. Americans want an all out liberal right. Not smart America. Romney is winning because he’s gone all out liberal in enough ways to make him viable.

This administration continues to explore ever lower depths of degradation in terms of vulgarity, lying, and extortion.
