While In Israel, Romney Endorses National Healthcare: INcluding mandates

Said Romney, When our health care costs are completely out of control. Do you realize what health care spending is as a percentage of the GDP in Israel? 8 percent. You spend 8 percent of GDP on health care. And you’re a pretty healthy nation. We spend 18 percent of our GDP on health care. 10 percentage... Read more »

Jim Gaffigan vs. Romney "Gaffes Again" . . . Which One Is the Better Comic?

Jim . . . or . . .
A little Monday levity . . . sorry Jim.

Romney Takes 'Offensive Tour' To Middle East

Trying to reset the debacle known as his trip to London, Romney headed to Israel for what was in all-intents-and-purposes a photo op fundraiser. But in so doing, as he placated and lauded platitudes, he managed in the same trip to continue  with what he started in London: to offend the majority population in the region.  And he...

Ex-Florida GOP Head: the party is full of crazies, liars and 'whack-a-dos'

I’ll let him speak for himself (via Tampa Bay Times): In a wide-ranging deposition that spanned two days in late May, former Florida Republican Party chairman Jim Greer denounced some party officials as liars and “whack-a-do, right-wing crazies” as he described turmoil in the months before his resignation. He also spoke of party attempts at... Read more »

Another Blow to 'Conservative' Propaganda As Koch-Funded Study Backfires!

Even the casual observer of the American socio-political, macro and micro cultures can take from the landslide and record election of Barack Obama a fear and disquiet amongst the American white, male elite.  This anxiety of a demographically changing American society (and eventually changed electorate) can be found manifest in underwriters of the elite like billionaire Sheldon Adelson and through...

Romney Brit Blunders Know No End . . .

So, after insulting the London 2012 Organizing Committee pondering on their preparation for the 2012 Summer Games which drew a response from Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron who responded by alluding to Romney’s late-in-the-games managing the small Salt Lake 2002 Winter Games as games that were “in the middle of nowhere” as opposed to arguably the world’s most vibrant city,...

Romney Gaffes AGAIN (no I am not reposting day-after-day!)

I am having a hard time today even thinking about the incompetence of this man, and all while he is overseas trying to shore up his international bonafides. He is truly bordering on the pathetic.  Read the Salon article for yourselves . . .  if you DARE.

Romney Gaffes Again; this time in racial proporations!

The Romney camp blows the dog-whistle to his (racist?) fringe.  Said Romney advisor, We are part of an Anglo-Saxon heritage, and he [Romney] feels that the special relationship is special,” the Romney adviser told British newspaper The Telegraph.  “The White House didn’t fully appreciate the shared history we have. Probably not the thing you want to... Read more »

Even In Paraphrase Romney Steps In "It" -- like a "barn raising"

In yet the most recent example of poor Romney messaging and due diligence, Romney has released an ad which, in paraphrase, takes Obama’s words of last week stating that no one is an island, no one “builds it alone” out of context — a reference that factually states that no company, entrepreneur, individual delivers his or her...
