Real women know that politics is too hard for them; they do what their husbands tell them to do.
“Missouri women for Mitt” really doesn’t need to have any women.
This situation is becoming more and more intolerable!
Yes, we needed votes to pass our tax cuts for ourselves; I get that. And yes, a moron vote counts the same as any other votes.
But do the “useful morons” have to make things more difficult than they have to be?
First we have Todd Akin shooting off his mouth about rape. Look, I don’t care what this clown actually believes; we need that vote in the Senate! But does he have to embarrass all of us in public like this?
But can our religious morons leave well enough alone? Oh noooooooo!
What the heck is the matter with you Mr. Huckabee? Are you trying to turn our jewelry rattling wives off to our ticket?
Look, I really don’t mind it when you did your “get our idiots” to eat greasy fast food in the name of…well, not sure of what:
It gives the dummies something to do…and if enough of these fatties die early it might help out the Medicare situation.
Less talk about rape and more about tax cuts! Come ON people!!!!
Oh goodness….the peasants are threatening to revolt.
First, they are mercilessly hounding Mitt for his tax returns. That is just soooo unfair! Listen: Ann Romney knows how to respond to the hired help when they get sassy:
And when, oh when will the riff-raff FINALLY understand that we are, well….more important than they are? From a campaign stop:
Romney responded to the question regarding US military involvement by stating, “We are the most powerful nation in the world, and it is our responsibility to make sure we protect all of our interests both here and abroad. This helps protect each and every freedom that has been fought for and won over the centuries of our nation’s existence. We will do what we have to in regard to strengthening our allied relationships, as well as letting our enemies know we do not intend to back down. We will stay the course of freedom at all costs. That is what our founders would have wanted.”
This very rehearsed answer to a scripted question was followed by a question that the former governor was not prepared to answer, or so it seemed by his response.
The next question asked went as follows, “Governor Romney, it is true, is it not that you had four deferments from the Vietnam War… You have said before that you support war and the efforts of US military involvement overseas at all costs, yet you made sure you would never go to war yourself. What makes you think that veterans and those currently serving in the military think that you have their best interests at heart when you yourself weren’t even interested in sacrificing your time, energy, or life for your nation at a time when it seemed most crucial?”
“That’s a good question, young man, and I would be happy to answer it. The Vietnam War came at a time in my life when I had other plans. I knew in my heart of hearts that I would one day serve my nation. That I would one day hold an office that would help not only our nation, but also the world. So I did what I could to make sure that I would be around to serve my nation, as well as serving God by teaching very important religious principles to a broader audience overseas. My father did not want me serving, and he convinced me that yes, I was too important to go to Vietnam. I had a greater purpose in life. I wasn’t neglecting my nation, but rather preparing myself for a future of service.”
Of course, the uncouth person with the question in a most vulgar manner; what do you expect?
(note: the libs mention that this is a satire quote and was never really said but it makes the important point: real Republicans (those making 250 K a year or more) ARE more important than the riff-raff.)
On the day that Mitt Romney formally announced his run for the presidency last year, he found himself competing with a stiff New Hampshire wind, which stood his hair on end and played havoc with his microphones. What blew in later was even more distracting: the red, white, and blue bus bearing Sarah Palin on her “One Nation” tour. Palin stole the headlines, and Romney’s buzz, that day (“Coincidence,” she said), and beyond. Through much of the summer, she hovered at the edge of the Republican primary campaign as a shadow candidate, once predicting that she could not only beat Romney, but President Obama, too, before finally declaring herself out of the race last fall.
But Palin continued to vex Romney’s candidacy, questioning his conservatism, encouraging the non-Romneys still in the race, and publicly cheering for the prospect of an open convention. Even after Romney clinched the race in late spring, Palin remained pointedly hesitant about the presumed Republican nominee. She has not yet extended to Romney her full endorsement, and, while she speaks animatedly of the urgency of defeating President Obama in November, her support for Romney derives from the fact that Romney meets Palin’s threshold qualification—as “anybody but Obama.”
Ok, anyone but Obama is good:
Mitt still hasn’t invited Sarah to the GOP’s nomination assembly in Tampa, and the Tea Party is livid. Peter J. Boyer on how the snub could sabotage Romney’s tenuous ties to the grassroots—and why Palin is keeping the week open, just in case.
Sarah: you can just keep waiting. Real Republicans don’t want to have to update their immunizations if people like you are welcomed! Now run along. Shoo.
Finally, we are having the dialogue that we need.
One of the biggest problems in politics: the most deserving (the wealthy) don’t have ENOUGH influence:
In an interview with the Chicago Tribune, Ken Griffin, a hedge fund billionaire who is one of the 400 richest people in America, argued that the ultrawealthy in this country don’t have enough influence over politics. Griffin went on to say that the ultrawealthy “have a duty” to step forward and save the U.S. from what he says is a drift toward Soviet-style state control of the economy:
Q. I’m going to come back to this. But I want to touch on two more areas first. What do you think in general about the influence of people with your means on the political process? You said shame on the politicians for listening to the CEOs. Do you think the ultrawealthy have an inordinate or inappropriate amount of influence on the political process?
A. I think they actually have an insufficient influence. Those who have enjoyed the benefits of our system more than ever now owe a duty to protect the system that has created the greatest nation on this planet. And so I hope that other individuals who have really enjoyed growing up in a country that believes in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness – and economic freedom is part of the pursuit of happiness – (I hope they realize) they have a duty now to step up and protect that. Not for themselves, but for their kids and for their grandchildren and for the person down the street that they don’t even know …
At this moment in time, these values are under attack. This belief that a larger government is what creates prosperity, that a larger government is what creates good (is wrong). We’ve seen that experiment. The Soviet Union collapsed. China has run away from its state-controlled system over the last 20 years and has pulled more people up from poverty by doing so than we’ve ever seen in the history of humanity. Why the U.S. is drifting toward a direction that has been the failed of experiment of the last century, I don’t understand. I don’t understand.
He also complained that this is a “very sad moment in [his] lifetime,” citing the now-familiar Republican charge that the Obama administration has “embraced class warfare.”
I can understand why the ultra-liberal “lamestream media” doesn’t want to push this, but we must make the rubes come to understand this.
Vote Romney! Send Nasty Newt and Crazy Rick away!
Reporting from Washington—
President Obama for the first time has opened a sizable lead over his most likely Republican opponents, thanks to growing support among independent voters, according to a new Pew Research Center poll.
The poll, released Monday, showed Rick Santorum in a virtual tie with Mitt Romney in the Republican presidential race. Santorum, the former Pennsylvania senator, has moved up as a result of his backing from Tea Party Republicans and white evangelicals. He led Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, 30%-28% among Republican and Republican-leaning registered voters in the survey, which was conduced Feb. 8-12. In a Pew survey only a month ago, Romney led Santorum 31%-14%.
*&^%$!!!! When a Republican pays big money for something, we expect it to work!!!! Now our Willard “Mitt” Romney is losing to a lunatic that has no money!!!!! How in the world are we supposed to be able to beat Barack HUSSEIN Obama like this??????
I expect the Romney SuperPAC to commence carpet bombing Mr. Santorum at once!!!
For crying out loud Mr. Romney, throw the idiots a bone, will you??? Tell them anything; denounce heliocentric astronomy…..call for the death penalty for witches…..just throw the morons a bone, ok?????
