“Diminishing Returns”

The Romney’s still don’t get why they lost the election!

Mitt and Ann Romney appeared on the Sunday show on Fox News for an interview which not only showed they still don’t understand why they didn’t win the White House, but also, that they’d learned nothing from the experience.

They sat down with Chris Wallace and blamed everyone but themselves. It was the media. Mitt wasn’t given the opportunity to show the ‘real’ Mitt. He made an ‘unfortunate’ statement about the 47% moochers at a private gathering which was taken out of context. His team wouldn’t let him be Mitt.

So who is the ‘real’ Mitt?

“It Was the Economy, Stupid”

This article was posted on Huffington Post. To read it on Huff Post click on the link.

************************

Obama won a second term with an impressive victory!

Apparently he was able to overcome a bad economy, high unemployment, an incredibly inept foreign policy, a declining stock market, high taxes, failing banks, and the exploitation of small business.

He also overcame being a socialist, commie, marxist, born in Kenya, a Muslim warring against christianity, who associates with terrorists and refuses to show his college transcripts.

So, how did Obama get 332 electoral votes with such a horrendous record?

“No Longer Debatable”

This new article has been posted on The Huffington Post. To view it at Huff Post click on the link.

************************

A President showed up for the last two Debates and won an election.

The two candidates, President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, faced each other in a Town Hall format and the results were much different than the previous encounter. They clashed again over Foreign Policy a week later with similar results.

In each they battled for 90 minutes, the first over questions posed by audience members, still undecided about who they would vote for. In the next debate Bob Schieffer took them through a series of questions on foreign policies.

What was the difference between these debates and the first?

“Emasculating the Debates”

This article has been posted on The Huffington Post. Click on the link to read it at Huff Post.

*******************************

Millions were focused on the Vice Presidential Debate.

The first two debates were emasculating, first to Obama in the Presidential debate, then for Ryan in last week’s Vice Presidential encounter.

The importance of this second, usually benign exercise, was heightened by the lackluster performance of President Obama in the first debate — a night I’m sure he wishes he could do over.

The contrast between the first two debates was obvious and so was the spin. But, for reasonable people, Vice President Biden was effective at pointing out the deficiencies of not only his opponent, but the Romney/Ryan ticket — something the President failed to accomplish in the previous battle.

Was there a winner in Thursday’s debate?

“The Rest of the Debates Have Been Cancelled”

Over 67 million people watched the 1st Presidential Debate on Wednesday!

The debate last week surprised a lot of people, Democrats and Republicans. They’re still buzzing about it. And if you ask a 1,000 people you’d get 1,000 different answers about what they took from it.

Most are saying that Romney was the winner of this first debate and that President Obama appeared bored and at times unengaged. ABC News even went so far as to say Romney “delivered a commanding performance.”

But did anyone really win?

“Paul Ryan: A Gift to Democrats”

This article has been posted on The Huffington Post on August 27.

**************************************

Ryan is Romney’s choice for his 2012 running mate.

Just over a week ago Republican Presidential hopeful, Mitt Romney, selected, Representative Paul Ryan, from Wisconsin’s 1st District to be his Vice President.

The selection was a surprise to many on both the right and the left. Most had narrowed the field down to Senator Rob Portman or the ex-Governor from Minnesota, Tim Pawlenty.

Was the professed deficit hawk a good choice?

“Which War Is Next?”

Romney promises to unleash the wrath of the U.S. on Iran!

At a recent campaign stop, at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Conference in Reno, Nevada, Romney told an enthusiastic crowd that he would wield America’s $760 billion military might around the world, including a military solution in Iran.

This drew elevated applause from the ex-military audience, long separated from the ravages of war. The perfect gathering for a draft-dodging, war-mongering, right-wingnut like Romney?

Another war? Are you serious?

“It’s Not Envy, My Friend”

This article has been posted on The Huffington Post. Click on the link to read it on HuffPost.

************************

The Republican candidate thinks we’re all envious of him.

Romney feels that envy of his financial success, the envy of income inequality, is the driver of the current uprising against wealth — the driver of ‘class warfare.’ He also believes that envy is the reason for the anti-Romney movement of those opposing his candidacy. But the class warfare he alludes to is not generated by envy.

It’s only a talking point emanating from Romney himself to deflect from his obvious deficiencies and to fire up the Republican base.

True, some individuals are probably envious, but, is it envy that causes so many to dislike him?

“America Newtered”

This article has been post on The Huffington Post. Click on the link to read it at Huff Post.

***************************

America has come to an important crossroads.

One party has lost their way and has no clue how to get out of the nightmare they’re in or which path will take them out of it.

What’s at stake is control the most powerful nation in the world.

Years of hypocrisy, subcutaneous prejudice, and a narrow vision of democracy, has caught up with, and left, the Republican Party questioning their direction, positions, and values.

They’ve become the party of derision — a level of animus never this openly displayed by the Republican Party.

So what direction will the GOP take?

“The Supreme Joy of Citizens United”

This article has been posted on The Huffington Post. Click on the link to read it at Huff Post.

***********************

The Citizens United decision was an egregious blow to democracy.

Republicans applauded the Supreme Court ruling in January, 2010 seeing an opportunity to spend millions of dollars to destroy the liberal message and Democratic candidates without repercussions and incarceration.

They are now feeling the unintended consequences of the wrongful interpretation of law forced on the American people by 5 men in black robes. A partisan attempt to manipulate elections; a dishonorable maneuver that set election law back 100 years.

But, their attempt to influence elections, to legislate from the bench, has backfired!
