Nevermind what I said
by Mitt Romney


Romney has said that the statements he made in that "46 percent" tape were “off the cuff” and
“inelegantly stated”, but he still stood by them despite the immediate backlash that ensued after
the video was posted by Mother Jones and went viral.

“There are 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what,” Romney said in the video.
“There are 47% who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims,
who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to
health care, to food, to housing, to you name it.”

However, in a recent interview on Fox News, Romney was asked how he would have responded had
the 47% remarks been brought up during the presidential debate last week, and this was what he said:
“Well, clearly in a campaign, with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question-and-answer sessions,
now and then you’re going to say something that doesn’t come out right. In this case, I said something that’s
just completely wrong. And I absolutely believe, however, that my life has shown that I care about 100%
and that’s been demonstrated throughout my life. And this whole campaign is about the 100%.”

So, when Romney is giving a speech for free, he really says what he means.
When you pay $50,000 to hear him speak privately - he lies to you?

Who's buying that?

Since when is the ttuth free but a lie will cost you $50K?

Mr. Etch-a-sketch on Abortion
He finds new mays to be multiple choice
 by Irin Carmen


Here is a new way for Mitt Romney to express an ever-contorted position on abortion rights:
“There’s no legislation with regards to abortion that I’m familiar with that would become part
of my agenda,” he told the Des Moines Register today. Not long afterwards, there was an
apparent reversal, with his campaign spokeswoman telling the National Review’s Katrina Trinko
that Romney would “of course support legislation aimed at providing greater protections for life.” 

This may not have been an error at all; it may be a semi-clumsy entry in Romney’s long history
of telling people what he thinks they want to hear, even if it contradicts what he said before.
What’s clear is how blatantly false the statement is on the facts.

Let’s start with “there’s no legislation with regards to abortion that I’m familiar with,” a crafty
piece of legalese from a man with a Harvard law degree. Maybe Romney has never heard of
the 59 votes his running mate, Paul Ryan, has cast against abortion and reproductive rights in
13 years in the House, or the 38 bills Ryan co-sponsored on the same! Maybe he has no idea
that if Republicans take the presidency and the Senate, there’ll be very little to stop the
uterus-obsessed denizens of the House from getting their dream agenda, including restrictions
on abortion, Planned Parenthood funding, and contraceptive access.

I don't get pro-choice women.
Who in their right mind would fight hard to pass a law that gives old, white men in Washington
complete control over your reproductive rights and they'll decide if you'll have your rapist's baby?

Why would any woman want to give men that much power?

If a pregnant woman is in a car wreck and the doctor says, "I can't save the mother AND the uterus,"
Jim Inhofe and Paul Ryan will insist that the mother be sacrificed for the sake of that perhaps
week-old fetus - that's CRAZY but that's what you're going to get if Romney wins this election.

There are states that allow a woman's rapist to file for point custody.

Do you want to see your rapist every weekend?

  Subject: Obama's Rope-a-Dope Technique?

Hey Bart,

Love the website. Here's my take on the debate and the big O's performance...

1. America loves an underdog. They like to see come-from-behind wins...  Obama knows it.
    He counted on this with the first election. That is why he and Romney were both playing down
    expectations on their first debate performances in the first place. Now Obama will go into the
    second and maybe third debate appearing as an underdog. (which he might actually be)

2.  We run a risk of Democratic voters thinking, "Oh heck, Obama's killing my vote really
    doesn't matter" and then they stay home on election day....YIKES. So, how do you overcome this?
    Maybe by closing the gap and making it a closer race...then people will feel that their vote is VITAL...which it is.

3. Social psychology calls it the recency effect. We tend to remember and/or view the last thing we saw
    or experienced as more significant than earlier events. AKA- Obama knows that the first and maybe
    even second debate won't mean's the last event that people will remember... so he's saving
    his best ammo for that debate.

Bart, there have been many times in the past 4 years that I questioned and became frustrated with the
Obama playbook. However, the man has always been cunning, and in the end he always has a card up
his sleeve. I'm really hoping he has an Ace in his sleeve in regards to this first debate debacle!

Keep hammerin.

Science-hating Rethugs Strike
How stupid can educated people be?

Georgia Rep. Paul Broun said in videotaped remarks that evolution, embryology
and the Big Bang theory are "lies straight from the pit of hell."
The Republican (Seriously? You think we couldn't tell?) handjob made those comments
during a speech Sept. 27 at a sportsman's banquet at Liberty Baptist Church in Hartwell.

Broun, a medical doctor, is running for re-election in November unopposed by Democrats.
Broun said that he believes the Earth is about 9,000 years old and that it was made in six days.
Those beliefs are held by crazy people who believe the creation accounts in the Bible are literally true.
Broun sits on the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology.

There you go, World.

Our best and our brightest sit on the Space and Technology Committee.
Jim Inhofe sits on the Committee on Environment and Public Works
and he's the chair of that Committee when Republicans run the Senate.

This is what America has become, World, and these people run for office unopposed.

The whole world is laughing at us.

Angst in Obama's Camp


First came the nausea. Then came the anxiety.

I haven't gotten to anxiety yet.
After months of watching Romney twist in the media glare, a growing number of Obama’s supporters
— though confined for now to a noisy minority of liberals — are peering into the Obama-might-actually-lose
abyss for the first time after last week’s disastrous first debate.

Some progressives seem to be going into primal panic mode — to the profound annoyance of the Democratic
professional political class and an Obama campaign predicting a rebound at next Tuesday’s debate.
“That’s my party: Irrational overconfidence followed by irrational despair,” quipped Jim Jordan,
summing up the view of Obama’s campaign and a half-dozen top Democratic aides interviewed for this story.
But a lot of Democrats are somewhere in between — they simply can’t
believe Obama could be that bad again. Or could he?

Report: Obama left debate believing he'd won.

Palin: Dems want to kill Bristol

Sarah Palin has a message for the "haters" who sent Bristol Palin "threatening" packages
on that stupid dance show she's on:: Don't waste your time.
The Publicity Whore took to her Facebook account today and slammed whoever anonymously
sent "mysterious white powder" to the "DWTS" all-star season set in California.

The package reportedly contained a note threatening the "Dancing With the Stars" producers
if Palin is not removed from the show.

"These threats sure waste a lot of time, production and public resources; but do the haters
really think this will stop Bristol and Mark from keepin' on keepin' on?" Palin wrote.

"I try to put my children in a s much danger as posible. That maximizes the threat,
which means more publicity and greater book sales," the crazy woman said.

I have $100 that says Palin is having those threats sent to ABC.
She has to remind us what a "threat" she is because only she "tells the truth."

Subject:  Hey Bart, don't feel so down about the debate

Don't let the debate fiasco get you down.  This isn't 1960, there's too much other distraction
for the debates to do more than flicker in the public awareness.  There's 200 other channels
that aren't carrying anything about the debates, there's Netflix, there's Hulu, there are a million
video games, facebook and other distractions.  The media claims 67 million viewers, but how
many of those actually bothered watching?  Of those that actually paid attention, you can bet that
95% of them were political wonks who had already decided to vote against one side or the other. 

This would only be a make or break matter if the race was dead even, and it's nowhere close to that.
That aside, it would not matter what kind of performance Obama gave, it was easily predictable that
he'd be declared the loser.  A race where one of the candidates is ahead from the start doesn't lead to
nearly as much advertising as one where the candidates are apparently neck and neck, so the media
manipulates the data to create the illusion of every race as tight.  The simple fact that Romney has
consistently and always polled as the loser in the electoral college by a margin of at least 50 EV's
just does not and will not be allowed to make the news until the last week before the election. 

The big PAC money will dry up quickly if the polls keep coming in showing Romney as a loser. 
Therefore the polls are also going to be adjusted up until the last couple of weeks before the election. 
Already they have announced they'll go from polling registered voters to "likely" voters. 
And just how do you do that?  The easy way is to take everyone who voted in the last election
- whoopsie, that means everyone that didn't vote two years ago!  And forget those young voters
and Hispanics that vote Democrat this year for the first time!  It's called rigging the results my friend,
and they make some big bucks doing that.
Just watch the numbers and assume the networks are working hard to make the race close or
at least appear to be close.  If the "likely" voters move the results enough in the polling, then Joe
will be allowed a win, otherwise not, he'll be "just as disappointing as Obama" or words to that effect,
no matter if he breathes fire and is crowned by angels.
In a race where the judges and the guy broadcasting the race are the same people, and they get paid
more if the race finishes in a tie, what do you expect them to say?  If Romney had been ahead,
it would be all about his lies and how poor the moderator was.
Keep the hammer flying,

I can't believe America would intentionaly choose Bush's Third term over Obama's second,
but Obama has not yet pointed out that that's what they'll be getting if they fail to vote for
the Democrats in November.

Maybe he'll mention that in the second debate?

Subject:  That debate

I couldn't watch it through I was so frustrated by O's lack of response to obvious lies. 
I felt I could have done better, and Bartcop would have wiped the floor with him. 

I remember a year ago he was addressing some function in his usual cool, assured and
humorous self.  All the while in real time the attack on Bin Laden was going on! 
Can you imagine having that in your head while displaying nothing of the anxiety of
what it'll be like for him if the assault fails, al la Jimmy Carter's debacle in attempting
to rescue the Iranian held hostages?

With that in mind I thought, what international horror could be on-going or pending that
could throw him into such a despondent funk that he could barely operate?  Had the
Iranians just exploded the bomb? Had Netanyahu given him the word he was going to
flatten Iran once and for all? Had Greece quit the Euro and Europe was crashing? 
Had Turkey invaded Syria or vice versa?  Clathrate bubbles breaking through the
Arctic Sea due to the reduction of sea ice?  Or something more dreadful we haven't
even thought about? 

On the other hand, the strategy may have been to give Romney enough rope to appeal
to the centre while cutting his crazy base loose.  Then, in the next debate, O can throw all
of Romney's most recent centre-reasonableness back at him with quotes from his campaign
speeches and, to his face, ask him if he is a reasonable Gov of Mass-type person or a
"serious conservative".  What ya gonna be, eh?  It would kill him, if O is in form.  

He would have been horribly stung by the almost universal disapproval he garnered. 
Although, he might have said to his handlers", I didn't over-play my hand did I?" 
We will see.
Peter in NZ

If the Democrats had any brains...  (should I bother to finish that sentence?)
the first time Obama says, "Mitt, I think your facts are in error," the Democrats should
go ape-shit, hog-wild, throw-me-out crazy to let Obama know he just did the right thing.

Maybe that would encourage him to say things like that a second time...

 Subject: Tally


As Dan L said, Tally nailed it...for liberals and intellectuals, the people who were
going to vote for Obama anyway.  If the rest of the country agrees with her,
why is it that Romney has seen about four points of bounce from the debate? 

It's not because people realize he's lying!  If Obama wants to win this, he needs to show
his passion for protecting the middle class.  No one wants a protector whose idea of
protecting Social Security is, "Governor Romney and I have basically the same position." 

We aren't expecting protection from a guy who lets his opponent come up with a
number of lies, including some that have been debunked for years, and won't even
defend himself.  Especially when the opponent then calls our "protector" a liar in public,
and our guy doesn't call him on it at all.

Yes, this is an election for president, but it's also a question of whether or not the guy
we elect will even try to defend us from the schoolyard bully who wants to hold us down
and cut off our hair.  The Obama at the debate would spend five minutes trying to determine
whether or not there was a problem, then let the bully go free and spend another half hour
explaining why it was not in the bully's long-term interest to have done what he did -- all while
the kid who was bullied is lying on the ground crying. 

I want to see the Obama who is genuinely going to come to my defense against the tax-cut
bullies, and who will explain things to the average person in short, easy sentences. 
(My suggestion for the longest Obama sentence in the next debate is,
"Mitt, you know that's not true, and hasn't been true throughout your campaign.")

 Subject: Romney and the debate


When you consider what Romney actually said in the debate, as my Dad would say,
it didn't amount to a fart in a whirlwind.  In spite of that, most people felt that Romney
"won" the debate.  That's because people hear what they want to hear.  They wanted
to hear Romney say that he wasn't going to destroy Medicare.  They wanted to hear
that he would keep the "good parts" of how things are today and get rid of the "bad parts"
of how things are today.  Who wouldn't want to hear that, especially when each individual
gets to decide in his/her own mind what the "good parts" and what the "bad parts" are? 

By being non-specific on everything he said, Romney let every listener to the debate
fill in the blanks with what each was hoping to hear.

If Romney wins, the people who "filled in the blanks" and decided to vote for Romney
are going to be in for a HUGE disappointment.  Of course, by the end of his term,
the horse will be out of the barn and the barn will be burned to the ground,
so why bother to look for the horse?
