Another week come and gone...and frankly, I don't know how many more like this one I can take.
That's how you want to spin it, eh @SpeakerBoehner?. The Weeper of the House has a novel reason for why President Obama is beating Mitt Romney like a rented mule in Ohio...Governor Kasich has made such great strides in fixing the problems in the state that it's hard for Mitt Romney to run on the economy. Probably has nothing to do with the auto industry rescue that Obama oversaw, tho', so make sure not to give him any credit.
He is running for office, for Pete's sake! Mittens released his 2011 tax return today, having "overpaid" for the sake of appearances, and you can bet your bottom dollar that on the morning of November 7th after he get's thumped in the election on the 6th he'll be amending it to get his overpayment back.
Quote of the Day "Has a presidential campaign been more reliant upon seizing on its opponent's words (and wrenching them out of context)? This appears to be the hallmark of the Romney 2012 campaign method." -- Jonathan Chait
I sure as hell hope so! The GOP is so worried about a second Obama term because they are afraid he would manage to get higher taxes imposed on the top earners who have been cleaning up for the last thirty years at the expense of us working folks.
Some caliphate...approximately 30,000 Libyans took to the streets today to demand a disbanding of the militias that may have been responsible for Ambassador Chris Stevens' death.
Barney Frank says that republicans are too nuts to govern, saying on Friday that they have become so extreme and so insane that they can't pass legislation that the country needs to function, like bills that would set tax and farm policies, or fix the postal service mess. "The reason we have such a dismal record here is not because they are lazy, our Republican colleagues. It's more because of a word that rhymes with lazy, which the House rules will prohibit me from using."
If I live to be 950 I will be just as gobsmacked -- and just as embarrassed -- on the day I die as I am today (and have been for the last four years) over just how batshit insane this country went when a black man was elected president. Jesus H. Christ, America. Get over your racist self. And that goes double for the old Confederacy. Either get with the program or get the hell out. This shit is even crazier than the original birther bullshit was.
