Mitt Romney is sticking to what he said, that FEMA should be done away with, and let the states and or the private sector take over. You know what that would be like if the private sector was running it. It would make any disaster more worse, than what actual mayhem and destruction it already created.

On Saturday, V.P. Joe Biden campaigned in Florida, as 2,000 people listened to him speak. On the other hand, Paul Ryan drew a crowd of 725 in Derry, New Hampshire.
Florida has 27 electoral college votes, NH 4. It doesn’t make sense to be in a state that has a small vote, compared to the some of the bigger states like NY, California, Illinois, etc.
So in a nutshell, Romney/Ryan keep drawing small crowds, and Obama/Biden keep drawing the bigger crowds, it seems to be a no brainer that the voters are tired of listening to the same old stale Reagan & Bush bullshit.

Anne Romney said her biggest concern about her husband Mitt, is his “mental well being”. She also wished that she never got involved in his presidential run for office, but she said the reason was, no jobs were created during Obama’s first term. Either this woman is looking at the world through rose colored glasses, or she is being a plain ass about it, like the idiots, who collectively would tell same old lies, day in, day out.

When I first heard that Romney picked Paul Ryan to be his running mate, this had the Koch Brothers all over it. In an well written Op-Ed by Danny Weil of Truthout, spells out what the Koch Brothers are up to. Read it at Truthout. The link is below the pic.
Porn Star Jenna Jameson endorsed Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican candidate for President. The reason she says is, “when your rich, you want a Republican in office.” Now, one has to wonder what Mittens has to say about this, and will be red in the face.

Mitt Romney’s traveling press secretary Rick Gorka has no class at all, telling reporters to “kiss my ass.” It seems that Romney refuses to answer any questions from reporters, other than the ones at Fox News, which isn’t saying much, as they will ask him the softball questions, nothing to hard, cause that teax Mitt’s brain, and spew out even more gaffes.

Mitt Romney got caught telling another lie (which is nothing new), saying the Australia foreign minister said that the US was in decline, but it that wasn’t what he said. Of course its another one of Romney’s lies on putting the country’s blame on Obama.

Has Mitt Romney finally hit rock bottom, for not saying anything what Ted Nugent said about Obama, and the fact that Romney accepted Nugent’s endorsement. We all know that Nugent is the lowest of the low, and also dangerous person.
This thought(s) have been going through my mind, wondering about the likes of Santorum, Romney, Gingrich, Palin and etc., etc. The ones with the frothy, foaming at the mouth right-wing schizoid talk. The constant lying about Obama. Romney doesn’t care about poor people, Newt, the so-called historian, Santorum with the Satan talk. You get the drift. When it comes time, when these people pass away to the big GOP whatever, (add your own thoughts to it) I wonder how their obits will be written up. Now that’s something to think about…
Talking Points Memo
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich scored a huge victory the South Carolina Republican primary this weekend. He performed well in the Fox debates and the data suggests that drove his rise in the polls – his numbers picked up after he revved up the partisan crowd and Romney faded into the background. And then he won the actual vote by nearly fifteen points. Read more…
We all know Gingrich says one thing today, and tomorrow, its the other way around. How much longer will he last?

Now that Herman Cain has “suspended his campaign” (I’ve decided to honor him by suspending my reading of anything further about his candidacy / book tour), the race is down to three people: Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, and Newt Gingrich. At this point, the question isn’t so much whether Gingrich can beat Romney (he can), but whether Gingrich will beat Gingrich.
The task is complicated by the fact that there isn’t just one Gingrich. He’s a very Walt Whitmanesque candidate — he celebrates himself, he is large, and he contains multitudes. Read more….
When will the GOP start telling the truth, instead of lying for just about everything that rolls down the pike.
What is the point exactly of denying the obvious? What are we to make of Romney’s insistence that his first name is Mitt not Willard as is the obviously the case?
And why in the world should a deceptive ad be defended by the Romney campaign? Read more at Buzzflash
Herman Cain says he’s “A Koch Brothers brother from an another mother.” Now he admits he is one of them.
Keep talking Herman, because your hanging yourself out to dry. And it can’t come soon enough. He is not presidential material.
GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain spoke at an America for Prosperity event on Friday, and proudly claimed to be the “Koch brothers’ brother from another mother.”
“I’m proud to know the Koch brothers. I’m very proud to know the Koch brothers. They make it sound like that we have had time to go fishing together, hunting together, scheme together, golfing together.” Read more at the Huffington Post.
Sarah Palin said today, that she will not run in the 2012 run for the presidency. She made the announcement on the Mark Levin’s radio show.
This is real earth shattering news.
Hopefully we won’t have to watch and listen to this imbecile anymore.
The NY Times has reported, that NJ Governor Chris Christie will not seek the presidency, and will make an official announcement at 1:00 p.m. (10-4-11).
This should be a big let down for the Tea Party, and others in the GOP.
Meghyn Kelly of Fox News, defends the people in the audience that booed at last week’s Republican dedate. This is typical Fox News anchor style bullshit at its finest/worst. Take your pick.
Fox News anchor Meghyn Kelly defended members of last Thursday’s GOP debate audience who booed after watching a video of a gay soldier asking about the don’t ask don’t tell law.
The moment drew widespread attention, and on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden called the booing “reprehensible” during an appearance on “The View.”
Perry calls himself a Christian?

Another GOP clown, Rick Santorum, has announced that he is running for President.
You have to wonder if the big top will be big enough to fit all these egotistical clowns, as it sure will be fun watching them tripping over each other.
Sarah Palin calls President Obama and Nancy Pelosi liars, and says the Republicans are trying to “save” Medicare while the Democrats are killing it. Ms. Palin called the President a liar. This woman, who has told the truth less often than she tells lies, this person who lies about the weather in her own book, this serial liar, has called the President a liar on national TV.
When Patrick McHenry called Elizabeth Warren a liar twice, and never had the decency to apologize, then their is a serious disconnect. In Politicususa, Sarah Jones has a well written piece about McHenry, and none of it is any good.
It was just a matter of time when Mitt Romney would make an announcement that he is running for president.
The Boston Globe
Romney is planning to make the announcement next Thursday at an afternoon barbeque in Stratham, NH.
GOP Congressman Paul Broun of Georgia said they shouldn’t raise the debt ceiling, unless they abolish the Departments of Energy and Education. Brilliant. Just what the hell are these GOP ass clowns smoking?
How low can people go, threatening the high school girl that wants to debate Michele Bachmann. According to Alternet, the girl is honor student, and writes for the student school paper.
To be threatened with rape, and the Tea Party does jack shit about, is intolerable.

House Republican Paul Ryan defends his budget blueprint, medicare overhaul.
In a speech before the Economic Club of Chicago, the Wisconsin Republican maintained, “We cannot avert a debt crisis unless we directly address the rising cost of health.”
Ryan said his plan to overhaul Medicare would “give power to deny business to inefficient providers. [Democrats] plan is to give government the power to deny care to seniors.”
When Florida Governor Rick Scott refused to take money from the Obama administration for high speed rail, he said that it would ‘create Palinsque like death panels’. He’s the same governor who said ‘that if Florida accepted the money, and built the rail line, there would be a catch to it.’ In essence, the state of Florida would end up paying for it, which was not true.
Walker of Wisconsin, came up with some lame excuse not to take the money, to improve the rail system between Milwaukee and Madison, so as to cut down on the length of time.
So the money they refused to take, along with Ohio, some of that money was awarded to Massachusetts, Maine and a couple of other states, that want to improve their rail lines.
I’m hopeful that the voters in the Republican states, either recall, or vote them out in 2012, and never to be heard from again.
Rachel Maddow, makes a good point about Conservative media bias, on the Sunday morning talk show. It was a ratio of 3-1, in favor of the talking heads, from the Bush adminisration. A total of nine Republicans and only 3 Democrats were on the shows this past Sunday.
Before the first so-called Republican debate in Greenville, SC the right wing loons had a Tea Party rally, and among them were the Oath Keepers. They have what they call the 10 points of rules that in essence, are rules and laws not to be obeyed. Read them. Its crazy and quite frankly scary.
Some of the speakers were; SC Governor Nicki Haley, Roy Moore of the 10 Commandments fame, and a few other whack jobs.
Paul Ryan, the anointed budget writer for the GOP led House, accuses ThinkProgress of “Stacking Crowds” at his town hall meetings in his home state of Wisconsin.
When the Democrats was having their town hall meetings in 2009, it was alright for the Tea Baggers, and other right wing loons, to scream, shout, and wreak all kinds of havoc. But when the Republicans have town hall meetings, they say people are bussed in to disrupt them, and its not right to do that. Well Ryan, all I can say is “Pay Back is a Bitch.”
The House Republicans are acting like spoiled school children, as they refuse to pass a resolution to honor the military, and the Navy Seals. They should get over it that Osama bin Laden was caught and killed under Obama’s watch, and not George Bush. I just have to wonder what the hell goes through their minds.
With some of the top Republicans giving their take, and congratulations on the killing of bin Laden, only one mentioned President Barack Obama by name. That was Tim Pawlenty. I congratulate for that. The rest; Romney, Bachmann, Santorum, and others, gave thanks for killing bin Laden, but no mention of the president. To think if it was a Republican in the White House, they’d be heaping praise on the president. Then we have Fox news saying, that the photos of bin laden are fake. Again, Obama can get no respect from these degenerate assholes.
