"And that's the way it is"....this week.
Romney and the GOP said President Obama won't run on the economy except Obama is running on the economy so now, according to Willard, Obama's an "anti-capitalist" and Willard switched to education--his idea, bigger class sizes. That'll do it.
Romney declared that he spent 25 years in the private sector running a business, "I can read a balance sheet." Well, hoo-rah, so can I but it didn't take me 25 years to figure it out!
Rush Limbaugh said Bain didn't go into business to create jobs anyway, that's not what equity companies do. The GOP talking heads said no big deal, Rush never liked Mitt anyway.
Romney promised to repeal President Obama's student loan law which previous presidents tried to pass and failed. Under Obama, loans are given directly to students and the interest on those loans is paid to the US Government which assumes the risk. Romney wants to put banks back in the middle; the banks would be paid the interest while the Government still assumes the risk of those loans. Sweet deal for the banks who get the profit without the risk--at least Mitt is consistent, once a Bain vulture, always a vulture.
Gas prices continue to fall and are expected to drop even lower. All that Romney and right-wing finger pointing at President Obama when the price was rising, and crickets chirping as they drop.
Mitt Romney, with John McCain in tow, spoke at a Memorial Day service. Now, there's no objection to Romney attending or speaking; however, using it as a prop for a campaign speech about the perils of shrinking military spending is just wrong as well as disrespectful.
Donald Trump, despite having been humiliated and proven a liar last year, once again jumped down the birther rabbit hold taking Tweedle-Mitt along with him. Romney knows he needs every bigot vote out there to win so his staff tells the media that Romney it takes character and leadership--to stand by his bigot!
Republican George Will gets a big gold star for calling Trump what he really is--a "bloviating ignoramous."
In response to a reporter's remark, Romney released his birth certificate. Uh-oh. Sure enough his father was born in Mexico; worse, it's a short-form Certificate of Live Birth. Get right on that Donald, last year you said short form certificates of live birth are not "real birth certificates" and send those private investigators down to Mexico. How do we know Mitt's Michigan birth wasn't faked because his parents knew he'd grow up to run for president.
Florida's GOP Gov Rick Scott is subverting democracy by purging 182,000 voters from the FL roster despite being told and the facts prove the list is flawed. He significantly upped the Jeb Bush ante; Bush's 2000 purge of voters helped his brother win by only 537 votes--the odds are better for Romney if 182,000 Floridian votes are suppressed. The GOP plan is if they can't win elections legally, just cheat and eliminate as many independent, minority and democratic voters as possible. The DOJ is now involved.
The Romney campaign is attacking President Obama's clean, renewable energy initiatives. Apparently in Mitt's world only big oil, gas and coal are worthy of Government subsidies--Romney the UN-equal opportunity capitalist!
Iowa's GOP Gov Branstad used the line-item veto to eliminate a $500K appropriation to Iowa's food banks passed with bi-partisan support as part of the balanced budget. Guess Terry is like the other GOPers these days, he doesn't like poor people, especially poor children, either.
Romney won Texas becoming the likely official GOP presidential nominee. He celebrated his win in Vegas with his carnival barker, birther, bigot, best buddy Donald Trump. Too bad what happens in Vegas doesn't stay in Vega.
GOP Rep Pete Hoekstra wants to add a Federal Office to verify citizenship of presidential candidates but, hey, it's got nothing to do with President Obama. Seems "bloviating ignoramous" describes a lot of the GOPers lawmakers these days.
Listening to Senator McCain criticize President Obama's decisions regarding Syria or whatever country is the latest GOP "let's invade and whoop 'em" hot spot, it is sad to see that the lessons of Iraq and Afghanistan are yet to be learned.
Romney decided he wants a Constitutional Amendment that requires presidents to have spent at least three years experience in business thus making it impossible for Dwight Eisenhower, John McCain, Colin Powell, or General Petreaus to ever be president. What a ninny Mitt is.
This week the Romney campaign rolled out an App titled, in big, bold print, "A BETTER AMERCIA". Rumor has it they're offering the 7-year old National Spelling Bee whiz kid a job as their spell checker!
Former Indiana GOPer in charge of elections, Charlie White, was sentenced to one year of house arrest having been found guilty on 6 counts of voter fraud.
Michigan GOP Rep Thaddeus McCotter is also under investigation for voter fraud. Of the 1830 petition signatures filed, only 244 were valid so McCotter won't be running for his own seat this year. Page after page of petition signatures were cut and pasted duplicates. It seems the only voter fraud and voter suppression running rampant is that committed and/or allegedly committed by republicans!
Romney sent hecklers to drown out David Axelrod's Massachusetts pre-announced press conference meanwhile, Mitt took his press on a secret field trip to Solyndra. Wonder when the media is going to call Mitt Romney the liar he is; his speech from start to finish was one fabrication after another. Challenge to the media, ask Willard about his Massachusetts taxpayer loans to Acusphere, Spherics, Evergreen Solar to get the ball rolling.
John Edwards was found not guilty on one count of campaign finance fraud and a mistrial on the other charges. While Edwards is guilty of cheating on his wife, lying to supporters and trying to hide it, if the Koch Bros can donate $400 million of secret money to be used to buy legislators, justices and possibly a presidency, convicting Edwards would be a hypocritical sham of justice.
The Bachmann "Chitspa" Award goes to the good friend of the "Bloviating Ignoramous", Mitt Romney. Obviously, Romney thinks that he can stand by his bigot supporter, he can tell people he is not a birther and disagrees with him but sees nothing wrong with Trump blowing the racist dog whistle because Mitt isn't blowing it--it's his pal. It takes Chutzpah to believe the bigot, racist taint doesn't rub off, it's all over him; it's part of that yellow streak running up his back.
