Romney 100% Believes His 47% Comment

Filed in National by on November 15, 2012 14 Comments

Here’s Mitt Romney being a jerk and a sore loser and doing his best to further divide the country:

Saying that he and his team still felt “troubled” by his loss to President Obama, Mitt Romney on Wednesday attributed his defeat in part to what he called big policy “gifts” that the president had bestowed on loyal Democratic constituencies, including young voters, African-Americans and Hispanics.

May I suggest that one of the main reasons Mr. Romney lost was due to comments like these, along with a stunning contempt for most people?

Bobby Jindal countered Mitt’s sour grapes temper tantrum by basically saying, “So long, loser. Don’t let the door hit you on the ass…”

Oh, Look! Mitt Romney Flip Flops On FEMA

Filed in National by on November 1, 2012 2 Comments

The only thing I know about Mitt Romney is that he lies at a rate I’ve never before seen.  I also know that anyone who claims to know what Mitt Romney will do as President is either lying or delusional.

Last Night’s Debate: Libya

Delaware Dem is buried under polling numbers, so I’m jumping in on this – with DD’s blessing! There are two separate issues concerning the exchange on Libya last night.  I’ll deal with the easy one first.

Mitt, Women, Binders And AK47s

Filed in National by on October 17, 2012 33 Comments

After watching last night’s debate I’m starting to think that the only woman Mitt Romney knows is Ann Romney – and even that’s debatable.

Let’s start with the Binders Full of Women exchange.  Let’s look at what Romney said…..

This Can’t Be True, Can It?

Filed in National by on October 16, 2012 21 Comments

Richard Williamson is Mitt Romney’s top foreign policy advisor, the guy who orchestrated Romney’s original effort to exploit the attack in Libya before it was even clear the US Ambassador had died. Now he’s saying that Romney will insist Obama “man up” and take responsibility for the Ambassador’s death at tonight’s debate.

There are two reasons why I think Mitt Romney wouldn’t dare try and pull this off. First, reports from people who were actually in Libya are citing the video as the initial reason they heard for the attack, and second… Mitt uttering the words man up? Yeah, that would sound natural.

If I were Romney I’d tread carefully here. He already has parents of fallen embassy officials calling him out for politicizing this tragedy.

Paul Ryan Has The Cure For Poverty

Rachel Maddow ran a segment on Paul Ryan getting testy with a reporter and cut through the visual to get to the meat of what happened.  Yesterday, everyone was talking about how testy Paul Ryan was, but that misses the point

Not The Behavior Of A Winning Team

Filed in National by on October 4, 2012 10 Comments

Watch the video inside and tell me what Sununu hopes to accomplish. Seriously, what’s the point?  Oh, I get the big ol’ dog whistle, but what I don’t get is why Sununu would go down this path after a supposed victory?  These are not the words of winners.

Maybe, he just didn’t want to be outdone by his buddy Newt.

“[Obama] really is like the substitute [National Football League] referees in the sense that he’s not a real president,” Gingrich told Greta Van Susteren on Fox News Tuesday night. “He doesn’t do anything that presidents do, he doesn’t worry about any of the things the presidents do, but he has the White House, he has enormous power, and he’ll go down in history as the president, and I suspect that he’s pretty contemptuous of the rest of us.”

How Many Coming Out Parties Does Mitt Romney Need?

Filed in National by on October 2, 2012 1 Comment

Again?  Seriously? Another Debutante Ball? Romney’s advisers have a simple strategy: They want their candidate to balance his finely tuned arguments with personal warmth. Since Romney is a reserved man, his advisers acknowledge that it will be difficult for him to endear himself to the country, especially under the hot studio lights. But they consider […]

Romney Relying On… Zingers?

Filed in National by on October 1, 2012 19 Comments

First, I have trouble envisioning Mitt Romney delivering a zinger.  Zingers work when they flow naturally.  Zingers work when your opponent plays the straight man/woman and gives you the opening.  They do not work when forced.  They do not work when you look for, or make-up, an excuse to use them. And zingers alone won’t […]

Romney Feeds His Own Negative Narrative On A Daily Basis

Filed in National by on September 28, 2012 15 Comments

I really have never seen anything like the Romney campaign.  Disaster is too mild a word.  If there’s a misstep to be made, Romney makes it.

And every single error, misstep, gaffe Romney makes confirms what the Obama Campaign has been saying all along. That’s why the attacks/criticisms against Romney are resonating.

Romney’s hopelessly out of touch with average people – his social awkwardness (if you haven’t seen Romney trying to get the crowd to chant his name here it is) isn’t the least bit endearing; it’s jaw-droppingly shocking.  Romney’s compassion for people resembles a profit/loss analysis – there are simply groups (a whopping 47%) of people he’s willing to write off.  And it’s funny that a man who lacks compassion for the poor is resolute about humanizing corporations.

Romney: Rules Are For The Help

Filed in National by on September 23, 2012 0 Comments

Via BuzzFeed:

Mitt Romney’s campaign took a hard line with the Spanish-language network Univision, making last-minute demands in the run-up to last week’s town hall that helped insure his success in the forum, sources familiar with the broadcast told BuzzFeed.

When the Republican took his place Wednesday night in the first of two back-to-back candidate forums televised on the mega-network, he was greeted by an adoring, raucous crowd that cheered his every word, and booed many of the moderators’ questions. The next night, President Obama was treated to stone cold silence from the audience as he was aggressively grilled on his lackluster immigration record.

That’s quite a different audience response.  Wonder why?  Perhaps it had to do with this:  “they (the Romney Campaign) told the network and university that if they weren’t given an exemption to the students-only rule, they might have to “reschedule.” Or… Nice show you have scheduled.  It would be shame if something happened to it.

Where’s Mitt?

Filed in National by on September 22, 2012 5 Comments

Every day, Daily Kos lists the scheduled campaign appearances by the candidates and their spouses. For at least the last two weeks, I’ve been gobsmacked (love that word, borrowed it from Bryan Alvarez over at Wrestling Observer) by the virtual absence of Mitt Romney from the campaign trail. He’s doing private fundraising events and apparently […]
