GOP Sound Bites Rss

The GOP has a broken picker, they picked another lier!

What is wrong with the GOP and their ability to pick candidates? I thought the GOP would have learned their lesson after John McCain picked Sarah Palin. After a failed vetting process, as documented in Game Change, Steve Schmidt himself has admitted that they picked Sarah Palin to make a game changing move in the election, to win at any cost, not because she was qualified to be President of the United States. Schmidt admitted on Morning Joe that they made a reckless choice and did a disservice to the United States of America by picking Sarah Palin. Did they learn? I think not.

During the Presidential Primary, we were presented with a host of incompetent candidates. Newt Gingrich? Rich Santorum? Ron Paul? Michelle Bauchman? Herman Cane? Really? Who encouraged these people to run?

GOP Presidential Primary Candidates 2012

It seems like out of a host of incompetent candidates, the one with the most money won. Just that simple, his money out lasted everyone else while he was slamming his opponents with nasty ads over and over and over again. Money talks. Mitt Romney is the GOP nominee for the President of the United States, apparently by default.

Doesn’t it seem that the GOP didn’t run their best and brightest? Do you think they were so sure President Obama would be re-elected that they didn’t want to tarnish their best candidates with a loss? Is Mitt Romney a human sacrifice hand fed to the American public by the GOP? Who are they holding back for the 2016 race? Jeb Bush?

Did anyone but me notice what happened when it came time for Mitt Romney to select a running mate? How many potential Vice Presidential short listers came on the air and said categorically NO, maybe adding some Romney insults to the interview to make sure they weren’t included on Mitt’s long or short list. Wouldn’t you love to see a video of those strung together? Oh wait a minute, there is one, you can watch it here.

I think Mitt Romney’s short list didn’t consist of the best Republican running mates that are qualified to be President. I think his very short list consisted of a very small number of people who were willing to run on a ticket with Mitt Romney.

Now we have Paul Ryan. Qualified to be President? I hear he was sent to Washington because his family didn’t feel he was qualified to be a part of their family business. Was Ryan sent to Washington to secure Government contracts for the family business?

The one thing he is qualified to do is lie, just like Mitt Romney.  I’ve done a few blog posts regarding Mitt’s blatant lies on the campaign trail, check them out.

After only a few days on the trail, Paul Ryan is lying already. What a way to pick GOP.

Romney Hood, I couldn’t resist

Romney HoodI must confess, I’ve been a little caught up in the Olympics and have had my politics in small doses for the past few days, but this I could not resist.

When I heard President Obama talking about Mitt Romney’s tax plan and called it Romney Hood, I thought I was going to lose it.

Earlier tonight I was watching Chris Matthews and saw this great image by Winston Smith of DailyKos.com and couldn’t resist a quick blog post.

Thanks Mitt for the inspiration to turn off the Olympics for a few minutes.

By the way, does anyone know why trampoline and table tennis are Olympic Sports?



He Tried, We Tried, the Republicans Didn’t Try!

This video is a piece of pure fiction.  Don’t get it twisted RNC, Americans aren’t stupid. You think we don’t know what “Do Nothing Congress” means? The saying should be “Do Nothing Republicans in Congress.”

I’m having a hard time understanding why the Republicans ran for Congress. To help the American people? I think not. They came to Washington to help themselves and do the bidding of the Koch Brothers. Their every thought and every move is all about how to get re-elected. Where’s the integrity in this political party?

The only legislation the Republicans want to pass is legislation taking away more and more of our rights.  If the Democrats weren’t in control of the Senate and able to stop them, I don’t know where we’d be now.  



He Tried, We Tried, the Republicans didn't try


Our fate is in our hands.  


Trickle down economics that are so beloved by the Republican party don’t work. We’ve tried this over and over and over. We’ve been applying trickle down for over 10 years and WHERE ARE THE JOBS? Don’t raise taxes on the “Job Creators?” The “Job Creators” have had the lowest taxes in history for over 10 years! WHERE ARE THE JOBS? 

The question we should be asking after over 10 years of trickle down economics is, WHERE IS THE MONEY? Not in my bank account and I’ll bet it’s not in yours either.  It’s defiantly not with the middle class, that’s for sure. I know where it is, in the savings and off shore accounts of the top 2%. Trickle Down? Don’t make me laugh.

This video speaks the truth and tells us straight up what he tried and continues to try. Had President Obama’s policies been adopted by Congress, we wouldn’t be in the mess we are now.  President Obama is not to blame for today’s economic problems, the Do Nothing Republican Congress is. He tried.

Give President Obama four more years.  It is OK to make a change, elect Democrats to Congress so we can get this fixed. If we don’t, the economic melt down of a few years ago is going to look like a walk in the park.


What is Mitt hiding in his tax returns?

BainCapitalGood question, what do you think it is?

Tonight on the Ed Show Ed Schultz asked: “What will do more damage to Mitt’s campaign: releasing his tax returns, or NOT releasing his tax returns?”  

My initial reaction was that I honestly don’t know. He released 23 years of tax returns to the John McCain campaign in 2008, so why not release 23 years now? 

I suspect that he’s hiding multiple things in his tax returns:

  • Income from Bain Capitol for years that he says he was no longer involved, those missing 4 years between 1999 and 2003.
  • Many off shore accounts.
  • Involvement in many off shore companies.
  • Tax rates below 10% or maybe not having to pay taxes at all for some years.

If he doesn’t release his tax returns he’ll just go on deflecting the question and changing the subject back to Obama. This classic Republican tactic of deflection is starting to run out of steam we see it so often these days.

I’ll have to wait for the Poll results to find out.

What do you think?

And the Poll results are:

Releasing his returns 59%
NOT releasing the returns 41%


News Night anchor Will McAvoy takes on the Koch Brothers on Newsroom

News Night anchor Will McAvoy I feel bad for those of you who don’t subscribe to HBO, Newsroom alone is worth the monthly cost, this show is fabulous.

In Episode 3 Will McAvoy, played by Jeff Daniels, takes on the Tea Party who he suggests has been taken over by the Koch Brothers and have hijacked the Republican Party.

I know this is fiction, but the stories on this show are real, and Will McAvoy’s assumptions could not be more correct.

The Koch Brothers are in the process of buying our Government, and so far, we are letting them.  Don’t forget, we have the power to stop them. Even with the 400 million they are expected to spend in this election cycle, they still only have 2 votes.  

Come on 98%, pull it together. Even Will McAvoy, a Republican, can see what they are up to. I promise you, if we let the Koch Brothers win, we won’t like the consequences.

I love this show.
