Republican Trolls – They send my mind in strange directions

Guest post by Brenda Cornwell

republican-trollTrolls. They send my mind in strange directions.

In response to my recent post on Lady Liberals of the infamous August 6th, 2001, Presidential Daily Briefing, one “critical thinker” asked “what was Bush supposed to do? Ground all airplanes?”

So as my mind began to formulate a witty, yet perfectly demeaning comment, I came up with this little scenario:

Let’s take a trip in the Lady Liberal’s Way-Back machine to April 10th, 2004. Our Way-Back machine doesn’t work very well (YOU try and find someone who can repair a Way-Back machine!) So when we go back in time, things get a little mixed up to say the least. In this trip, we find the U.S. post-9/11…and here’s the part that got mixed up…the President is Barack Obama.

Let’s listen in to the conversation on Fake News and Outrage & Friends with the three perky, blonde bombshell commentators (yeah, that part got mixed up as well!):

Brenda: Breaking news! We were just handed a declassified document that was hand-delivered to President Barack Obama on August 6, 2001. The title of the Presidential Daily Briefing is “Bin Laden Determined to Attack in the US.”

This is shocking I say. Absolutely shocking! And Mindy, you know where the President was when people were desperately trying to get his attention focused on terrorism? An imminent threat is looming and where was the President of the United States? Let me tell you where he was…he was on VACATION!

Mindy: Shameful, absolutely disgusting. I agree completely. This is an outrage. Where was this President? He was on vacation on the tax payer’s dime. He couldn’t be bothered to fly back to Washington and deal with this warning! This is an unimaginable failure! This is beyond the pale. Over 3,000 Americans died on 9/11 and now we find out the President was TOLD it was going to happen!

Carla: I’m reading directly from the PDB now: ‘FBI information since that time indicates patterns of suspicious activity in this country consistent with preparations for hijackings or other types of attacks, including recent surveillance of federal buildings in New York.’ And they told us…and I quote the National Security Advisor here: “I don’t think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center”

Mindy: OMG! Who could have imagined? Apparently someone could imagine it! Are these people insane?

Brenda: They knew that Al Qaida operatives were in the United States and this administration did nothing? NOTHING!

Carla: And there is a report out there that President Obama’s reaction…this is stunning folks, I hope you are sitting down…President Obama’s response to this PDB was ‘All right. You’ve covered your ass now.’

Mindy: I am just sick to my stomach at the inability of this President to keep this country safe. 3,000 lives lost because of incompetence. Congress will be starting impeachment hearings soon, count on it.

Carla: Impeachment? He should be tried for treason. We will be right back with more on this breaking news story, stay with us folks. It’s going to get a lot worse for this ridiculous excuse of a leader.

Of course none of that happened now did it? But I think you get the picture. Go ahead…someone…tell me to “get over it.”

The United Citizens BEAT Citizens United

We the PeopleI must admit that when Citizens United was upheld by the Supreme Court, I thought we were doomed. Super Pacs turned up in record numbers, several being orchestrated by Carl Rove. Then we found out who some of the biggest donors were, Bob Perry, Harold Simmons, T. Boone Pickens, Shelden Adelson and The Koch Brothers among the most well known.

Why would anyone pour hundreds of millions of dollars into an election? What do they want in return? They aren’t there to give, they are there to receive.

I imagined that we would be inundated with negative ads, which we were, and that the Super Pacs would have an unfair advantage in the election. Boy was I wrong, American’s proved me wrong, and I am so happy about it, I should have had more faith that comm0n sense would win out in the end.

All I have to say to Sheldon Adelson and the Koch Brothers is thanks. Thank you for the economic stimulus.

Mitt Romney, a Man Without Integrity?

Posted on : 12-05-2012 | By : vlramirez | In : Anne Romney, GOP, Mitt Romney

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,



What is the single most important trait in a President?  Integrity. How can you trust a person who seems to have none? There are a few things about Mitt Romney that give me pause, but this is the biggest.  

Mitt Romney is not like us.  
Mitt appears to have no social skills at all. He doesn’t seem to be able to relate to normal people, the things he says seem to come from a different decade. Marvelous budget? Who says stuff like that? It’s like listening to dialogue from movies made in the 1940’s and 1950’s. What planet has he been living on for the past 50 years that would cause him to use expressions so old, so out of touch?

Mitt Romney doesn’t care about the 99%.
The statements that Mitt has made on the campaign trail make it clear how he would govern this country if elected. “Corporations are people too.” “Planned Parenthood, I’m going to do away with that.” “I like firing people who provide me services.” There have been dozens of similar statements, but just those three statements say it all. Mitt’s plan is to continue, if not escalate the current Republican Tea Party philosophy of giving to the top 1% and getting rid of the social safety net that has protected the 99% for decades. You think the middle class is disappearing now? If Mitt Romney gets elected, you better grab a life boat.

Mitt and Anne Romney give off a sense of entitlement.  
I wonder if they understand what type of image you should be putting forth to the electorate while running for the Presidency. Their actions are so entitled. Building a mega mansion in La Jolla, with a car elevator, during a Presidential campaign? Anne Romney wearing a $990 designer shirt (Reed Krakoff) for a television interview? 

Mitt Romney, the flip-flopper.
Have you ever seen a person that has been on so many sides of so many issues? Don’t worry, you’ll see enough video during the upcoming campaign that it will make your stomach turn. Mitt, have you ever heard of video tape? 

Mitt Romney lies, all the time.
He stands up in front of hundreds, maybe thousands of people and just lies. His   campaign staff must cringe every time he steps on stage. You can’t spin some of this stuff, it gives the Obama campaign hours and hours of video to use against him. The thing that gives me pause is that he lies with a straight face. If we can’t trust our own President, how will world leaders trust him? Will he lie with a straight face to them? Where is this man’s conscience? I have written posts about Mitt’s lying before, Rachel Maddow and Jennifer Granholm have documented many of his lies very well:

Mitt Romney is a man without conscience or integrity.
Now this week we discover that Mitt Romney was a bully in high school. I must say, I’m not really surprised, he gives off that air of superiority, like he’s better than the rest of us and the rules don’t apply to him. He doesn’t seem to have any compassion for other people. Even when confronted with his heinous past behavior, what does he do? He laughs. He can’t remember the incident, but how is it he can remember that he didn’t think the “fellow” (there’s that antiquated language again) was a homosexual. With 5 witnesses coming forward, among them an attorney, a dentist and a school Principal, still haunted by the incident, why doesn’t Mitt have the integrity to own up and take responsibility for his actions?  

Even worse, if he really doesn’t remember, what does that say about him? Who could forget an incident that has tortured 6 other people for their whole lives? Enough said.

At least this theory from MSNBC’s resident Republican on Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough gives me some comfort: Crazy Never Wins. This once, I hope Joe is right.

I Don’t Even Consider Myself Wealthy

Ann Romney said “I don’t even consider myself wealthy.”  Hello?  Can you say out of touch with the middle and lower class? 

You don’t feel wealthy when? As your driver is dropping you off at your Leer Jet? As you’re flying away in your private plane to one of your 4 or 5 homes?  When don’t you feel wealthy?

Pleeeeeeease!  Ann Romney makes it crystal clear “We can be poor in spirit.”  I think I’ve reached my limit.  

I don’t know about you, but I feel rich if I have $100 at the end of the month to put in savings.
