Because nothing says Reagan Republicans like Rush Limbaugh

The man knows no bounds… And just think, if when Romney loses, the party will erupt because of the ideologues like Limbaugh.

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh, who normally reserves his derision for Democrats, went so far as to say of Christie: “He’s fat and a fool. Don’t listen to Governor Christie. He doesn’t know what he’s talking about.” But Limbaugh clinched the quote with his reasoning for being so vicious: “He makes fun of me all the time.”

A writer for the right-wing Daily Caller, Matt Lewis, hopped onto the anti-Christie bandwagon as well, in a post titled “What’s Chris Christie up to?” Lewis called Christie “a prop for Obama’s re-election” and speculated that there must be some kind of “Christie/Romney schism.”

But you know, when you are the governor of a state, and a state facing a complete destructive make-over and your candidate has repeatedly said to get rid of FEMA… you may in fact have a change of heart.

Democratic poll watchers taught to mislead voters in wisCONsin

Oh, I’m sorry… I meant Romney’s poll watchers…

Mitt Romney’s campaign has been training poll watchers in Wisconsin with highly misleading — and sometimes downright false — information about voters’ rights.

Documents from a recent Romney poll watcher training obtained by ThinkProgress contain several misleading or untrue claims about the rights of Wisconsin voters. A source passed along the following packet of documents, which was distributed to volunteers at a Romney campaign training in Racine on October 25th. In total, six such trainings were held across the state in the past two weeks.

Really? This is the guy you want as President? If you vote for the lesser of two evils, and that is your philosophy, you are still voting for and this endorsing an evil.

Romney to insure country remains pro-choice

In the frenetic push to win all-important Ohio, Mitt Romney’s campaign is saying a lot of things to a lot of people. And on Monday, a top Romney surrogate told a group of Jewish voters in the Buckeye State that the landmark Supreme Court decision granting women the right to an abortion is in no danger of being overturned should Romney become president.

Thanks to Talking Points Memo for that.

Why is this important? Because Romney has said otherwise. But this the him plausible deniability. The Romney camp can just say that it is a surrogate. This man will say anything to win.

A good question from Frank Schaeffer

In response to the recent data regarding 73% of white Evangelicals supporting Mitt Romney –

What’s the explanation for the fact that WHITE American evangelicals made the allegedly philandering lying ignorant braggart lapsed Roman Catholic Dinesh D’Souza their anti-Obama hero, embrace a pro-choice Mormon bishop who promoted abortion and Planned Parenthood in MA, are working to elect a job-destroying tax-avoiding lying flip-flopping-tell-anyone-anything-they-want-to-hear Swiss bank account collecting draft dodger running with a disciple of the God-hating, Jesus-mocking hater-of-the-poor Ayn Rand, for their presidential candidate and look the other way as a crazed ultra-Zionist many Israeli Jews fear billionaire casino owner who is being investigated for allegedly making billions off the dirtiest Chinese gambling Communist Party-controlled outfit in the world funds the enterprise, at the very same time as Franklin Graham sold his ailing father Billy’s soul and denied core evangelical theology by taking Mormonism off the Billy Graham organization’s list of cults in order to help the Mormon pagan-ritual-performing, Trinity-denying, casino-money-grubbing billionaire-coddling, earth-destroying global-warming denying Mormon bishop win respectability for his dead-Jews-baptizing-polygamy-rooted-reality-denying-interplanetary Masonic lodge-embracing faith in an election against an exemplary modest faithful husband good father compassionate smart BLACK evangelical Christian President who’s major accomplishments include saving the economy, ending a war, killing our greatest enemy, giving health care to children and the poor and the “least of these” and who has tried to reduce the number of abortions by helping women escape poverty in a reenactment of the lesson of the parable of the Good Samaritan?

Personally, I don’t think Frank cares about the Mormonism of the President – but he makes a point. Every Sunday, the things Mitt stands far is railed against… and yet?

Only one way to tell, I guess…

According to the poll, which was conducted by GfK for the Associated Press on Friday, 18 percent of respondents said Obama is Jewish, while 10 percent said he is Muslim.

Despite the president’s repeated self-identification as a Christian, only a third of respondents to this year’s survey correctly identified him as such, while slightly more, 35 percent, said he had ‘no religion’.

This is, um, sad and fun. Mainly sad. But a little funny.

Quote of the Day: Mitt Romney (#Fema, #hurricanesandy)

Every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that’s the right direction. And if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that’s even better. […] We cannot — we cannot afford to do those things without jeopardizing the future for our kids. It is simply immoral, in my view, for us to continue to rack up larger and larger debts and pass them on to our kids, knowing full well that we’ll all be dead and gone before it’s paid off. It makes no sense at all. (here)

If anyone is sending jobs to China, it’s @mittromney, and yes, it is a pro-life issue

Why? Because pensions will be lost – health care lost, jobs taken to China were working conditions are just this side of Milton’s purgatory.

in their 2011 and 2012 Federal Financial Disclosure filing, Ann Romney’s trust lists “more than $1 million” invested with Elliott.

Since the November 2011 IPO, Delphi’s stock has roared upward, boosting the Romneys’ Delphi windfall from $10.2 million to $15.3 million for each million they invested with Singer.

[snip]

But what if the Romneys invested a bit more with Singer: let’s say a mere 3 percent of their reported net worth, or 
$7.5 million? (After all, ABC News reported—and Romney didn’t deny—that he invested “a huge chunk of his vast wealth” with Singer.) Then their take from the auto bailout so far would reach a stunning $115 million.

Yeah, sure, he’ll get tough on China… And I’ll stop taking free books.

I’m not asking you to vote for the President.. But I am asking you to consider why you are voting for Romney.

Donald Trump, the Anti-American

So, Donald is withholding charitable money until the President satisfies his desire – and listen to the words very carefully.

Seems to me that this will backfire.
