Our nation is in debt to you Ms. Giffords; and through it all you came back to keep giving to us.
Good luck as you recover!
Rick’s Santorum - Gays. (Dan Savage).
Newt Gingrich - Blacks. ex-wives.
Ron Paul - Jews/Banks/Gays/Blacks/The Media
Mitt Romney - Himself as Massachusetts Governor.
-Mitt’s dentist only uses the finest gold.
In other news, I think the dems are going Barry-O for their nomination. While the R’s managed to pick a guy who can’t win his state in a senate reelection. It’ll be great to see if Santorum can win New Hampshire (or Pennsylvania’s) nomination by electorate rather than caucus.
Unfortunately tonight I realized; win or loss, I’m going to see these already ripened nominating apples in future Republican Presidential nominations. Which leads me to my other realization; win or loss, Mitt only gives victory speeches.
tonights fact: Herman Cain received 58 votes. In fairness, most were from lunchladies at the cafeteria where the caucus was held in favor of “Pizza USA”
the whole Herman Cain interview stumble reveals, most of all, how hollow conservative opposition to the President is.
they hear the name Obama and they immediately knee jerk into the standard “oppose”; regardless of how informed they are of how events transpired or what his stance on policy is.
this isn’t just a trend for conservatives (even though its totally left our country shit out of luck in terms of a productive Congress); but its also the trend for anti establishment liberals, libertarians, political-hipsters, non conformists, etc.
dissent is a form of patriotism, but it should be the result of an the inability to reason out favorable understanding; not default.
compromise makes great leadership.
thanks Herman, for revealing how transparent (and hollow) your logic is.
Dick Cheney (pre 2008 election): if Obama is elected there will be another terrorist attack on America.
Mitt Romney (pre 2012 election): if Obama is reelected Iran will get a nuke.
“do I have pizza on my lips? … back to your question. Libya? what did the President say? well, my answer would have to be the exact opposite of that. next question.”
White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer: “The American Jobs Act is being blocked by Republicans in the Senate who have voted in unison against these common-sense, broadly supported proposals, and Republicans in the House refuse to even give the bill a vote. Senate Republicans have offered their own alternative as an excuse to oppose the President’s plan, but a look at them side by side leads to only one conclusion: one is truly a jobs plan, and one is not.”
DC Decoder has looked at the GOP proposal twice, once for its rather slim pickings in terms of new proposals and a second time through the lens of Washington Post Fact Checker Glenn Kessler’s work (which was not kind to the bill.)
the plutocrats are now spreading a campaign of misinformation, convincing the people that they are not affected by the income gap, the misallocation of taxpayer dollars to corporations, and the influence of corporations in politics.
the subjects of this campaign of apathy (like the guy above) are missing the point, “unless you struck oil in college you are certainly the 99%”. if your taxes were included in a board of director’s bonus check then you are the 99%.
