How Romney Stumbled
  from Politico


Stuart Stevens, Mitt Romney’s top strategist, knew Willard's convention speech needed a
memorable mix of loft and grace if he was going to bound out of Tampa with an authentic chance
to win the presidency. So Stevens, bypassing the speechwriting staff at the campaign’s Boston
headquarters, assigned the sensitive task of drafting it to Peter Wehner, a veteran of the last three
Republican White Houses and one of the party’s smarter wordsmiths.

Stevens junked the entire thing, setting off a chaotic, eight-day scramble that would produce an hour
of prime-time problems for Romney, including Clint Eastwood’s screw-up with an empty chair.

As Nazi-Con 2012 drew near, Wehner, now a “senior adviser” and blogger for the campaign,
was laboring under an unusual constraint for the author of a high-stakes political speech.
He was not invited to spend time with Romney, making it impossible to channel him fluently.
Nevertheless, Wehner came up with a draft he found pleasing, including the memorable line:
“The incumbent president is trying to lower the expectations of our nation to the sorry level of
his own achievement. He only wins if you settle.” It also included a reference to Afghanistan,
which was jettisoned with the rest of his work.

I thought they were going to tell us how Willard stumbled.

Turns out, he's just a screw-up who can't even get the easy ones right.

Maureen Dowd is anti-Semetic?
Her words set the Jewish community aflame


Maureen Dowd set the Jewish political community on fire today with a column about the Republican
ticket's foreign policy proposals that, according to her critics, peddled anti-Semitic imagery.
Dowd fairly observed that neither Mitt Romney nor Paul Ryan are experts in the field of foreign policy,
but asserted their strategy was orchestrated by a "neocon puppet master" who was leading the neocon
effort to "slither back" into power.
Such language, to say nothing of the questionable legitimacy of her claims, struck experts on
American-Israeli relations as an inappropriate (though perhaps unintentional) appeal to anti-Semitic
stereotypes, and especially offensive ahead of the first night of the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah.
"Dowd's use of anti-Semitic imagery is awful," Steven A. Cook, a senior fellow for Middle Eastern
studies at the Council on Foreign Relations, wrote on Twitter.
"Maureen may not know this, but she is peddling an old stereotype, that gentile leaders are dolts
unable to resist the machinations and manipulations of clever and snake-like Jews," Jeffrey Goldberg,
the Atlantic columnist and leading journalist on Israeli issues, wrote.
"Amazing that apparently nobody sat her down and said, this is not OK," Blake Hounshell,
the managing editor of Foreign Policy magazine, tweeted.

I don't get it.
Cheney was the head Nei-Con, so how can that term reflect badly on Jews?

And "slither" is a little strong, but I've never head the Jews called "snakes" before.

And the Jewish community is "on fire" over this?

Seems like if they're that touchy about language
we should be given a list of words that are kosher - or is that a slur, too?

BTW, Maureen Dowd hates everybody.

Romney - Psychic Fact Checker


After running through nearly every possible way to embarrass himself on foreign policy,
Romney must have been eager to return to reminding voters how out of touch he is.
In a interview aired Friday morning, ABC’s Judas Maximus attempted to get Mitt to provide
some clarity about his plan to cut taxes on the rich without really cutting their taxes or increasing
the deficit. Stephanopoulos pointed out that a study Mitt cited actuallyy says his plan would only
be “deficit-neutral” if he eliminates most deductions for anyone earning $100,000 a year or more.
Mitt responded that his plan would not raise taxes on “middle income people.”
“Is $100,000 middle income?” Stephanopoulos asked.
“No, middle income is $200,000 to $250,000 and less,” the former governor of Massachusetts said.
And the Internet went wild. Romney thinks middle income is $250,000 a year!
I wish. Of course he thinks that. He makes more than that from speeches and considers it couch change.
You can’t even build a decent car elevator for $250,000.

  ha ha


Our whore media keeps telling us the same thing:  razor-thin race, maybe 49-47 for Obama.

I don't believe them.

Everyone of us sees the same thing:
Things getting better under the cool, Commander-in-Chief who got Osama bin laden,
and that cranky billionaire guy who keeps making one major gaffe after another.

Our side sees that and their side sees that.

One guy wants to help the 240M people who really need help
and the other guy OPENLY says the top 1% should get even more.

Don't tell me this race is close.

You don't suppose.........?

"Mrs. Romney recounted that when she spent the night in the White House
during President George W. Bush’s administration, she accidentally wandered
into a room where the president was getting a massage.

“He was covered up, but I was so embarrassed that the next time I did see him
I didn’t know what I was going to say to him,” she said. “We were going down
the elevator from the White House, going to an event together, and I walked up
to the elevator and am just like blushing, blushing, blushing ,and he looks at me
and he winks as he does and says, ‘I look pretty good, don’t I?’”"

If I was giving some dude oral sex, I'd lock the door,
but then, using his head was never Bush's strong suit.

Obama Misportrayed by NYWT
by Gene Lyons

Breaking news: According to a profile in the New York Times, Obama is an extremely
competitive individual who doesn't like to lose. Imagine that! The first African-American
man to climb the slippery ladder to the White House has an edge to his personality.

They make him sound like Michael Jordan.

The newspaper's snarky tone indicates that this is a bad thing. "Even those loyal to Mr. Obama,"
reports Jodi Kantor "say that his quest for excellence can bleed into cockiness and that he tends
to overestimate his capabilities." GOP White House aide Matthew Dowd compares him to
George W. Bush, evidently the worst insult Kantor and her editors could imagine. 

Not content to be president, Obama seeks to improve his golf game.
He likes to win at cards, and keeps score when bowling!

Shocking, I know.

Romney's Mouth in Trouble Again
He can't help it - His mouth just runs away

Mitt Romney stood by his comments captured on a hidden camera at a closed-door
fundraiser earlier this year in which he called Obama supporters "victims" and said
they are reliant on government handouts.

In a hastily arranged news conference Monday night, he called his words "off the cuff"
and "not elegantly stated," but given several opportunities to back off the comments, he did not.

Romney said he was merely talking about the "political process of drawing people into
my own campaign." He described the incident as a "snippet of a question and answer session"
and called on the full video to be released to show the question and his response in its full context.

Yeah Mitt, don't you just hate it when people take your comments out of context?

You built your entire Nazi-Con 2012 out of "You didn't build that," even tho you knew
Obama was talking about businesses needing government and infrastructure to thrive.

The most telling quote is being played down by the media.
I hope the Obama people seize on this one line:

"And so my job is not to worry about those people,"
 meaning the lazy Blacks who don't pay any taxes.

Trust me, if Romney wins, the poor and middle-class
will be the LAST segments of America he'll worry about.

And they say he's a compassionate man of God? 
A Bishop in that wacky cult church?

Thinking about Clint's senior moment with the chair I realized that
he's one of the few people I could understand backing Romney.

He's got his wads of dough and wants to die with it.
He doesn't give a shit if the country goes under, he just knows he got his.

Tax Cuts Kill Jobs
History proves it, if anyone cares


The idea of tax cuts is the only economic notion I know of that has been thoroughly vetted,
over and over, and proven to be fallacious. It has never worked. People who get the tax cuts
are happier and the government may get by without the money, but it doesn't create jobs,
at least not in detectable numbers. You can hire an economist to craft a study saying that it
will produce growth and jobs, but the truth is in simple numbers.

All that you need to do is hail Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. One raised taxes modestly on
high incomes a few months into his first term and the other drastically slashed taxes on high incomes
in his first few months in office and again the next two years. Remember the hoopla each time.
Every Republican voted against Clinton's tax increase, which closed the huge budget deficits of
the previous 12 years, and they warned of a new depression. The Bush tax cuts were supposed
to create a boom the likes of which the nation had never seen.

The actual numbers for the seven and a half years after the Clinton tax increase and a similar span
after the Bush tax cuts? Clinton, 23 million net new jobs, Bush 1.1 million net new jobs.

 Subject: Santorum says what?

Rick Santorum addressed the Value Voters conference telling them,
"We will never have the elite smart people on our side".

He probably didn't realize it but he just admitted he's not smart
and he effectively called the Value Voters stupid.

Of course it takes a smart elitist like myself to point this out.

Bart, this was one of your toughest yet. That was a specially bodied Mercedes
designed by Johannes Beeskow of the coachbuilders Erdman and Rossi.

It was quite the hit at the 1933 Berlin Motor Show. Apparently an example of
the car was ordered by the King of Iraq in 1935, and coalition forces found it
beneath the streets of Iraq in one of Saddam's garages.
