That Seal Was Real

I honestly can’t understand how any woman in her right mind can support Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.

Don’t you mean any person? Anywhere? Ever?

June 28, 2012 6:36 pm

Also, Mitt Romney says the “worst” part of Obamacare is that “the federal government will get between you and your doctor.” Just like Republicans do with patients and doctors at Planned Parenthood, right Mitt?

rabbleprochoice:

FUCKING SERIOUSLY.

I guess I’m not that concerned with the federal government interfering with my health care WHEN IT ALREADY FUCKING DOES.

Jesus Christ, sometimes the level of cognitive dissonance that republicans have is literally unbelievable. Do they not listen to the words they say?

Goddamn hypocrites.

Love,

Rabble

Really Mitt? In what way?

Please explain this to me, I really want to know.

"If you haven’t cursed out a New York Times reporter during the course of a campaign, you’re not really a real Republican, is the way I look at it."

Republican presidential candidate RICK SANTORUM, being all “I hate the liberal media and stuff,” on Fox & Friends. 

Well when the liberal media hurts your feelings by asking you to explain your own words, there’s no salve better for those wounds than Fox “News.”

Quotes from Ron Paul, pictured here with the founders of white supremacist website Stormfront:
“If you have ever been robbed by a black teen-aged male, you know how unbelievably fleet-footed they can be.”
“Given the inefficiencies of what D.C. laughingly calls the `criminal justice system,’ I think we can safely assume that 95 percent of the black males in that city are semi-criminal or entirely criminal.”
“We don’t think a child of 13 should be held responsible as a man of 23. That’s true for most people, but black males age 13 who have been raised on the streets and who have joined criminal gangs are as big, strong, tough, scary and culpable as any adult and should be treated as such.”
 ”I miss the closet. Homosexuals, not to speak of the rest of society, were far better off when social pressure forced them to hide their activities.”
 ”Order was only restored in L.A. when it came time for the blacks to pick up their welfare checks three days after rioting began. … What if the checks had never arrived? No doubt the blacks would have fully privatized the welfare state through continued looting. But they were paid off and the violence subsided.”
“Opinion polls consistently show that only about 5 percent of blacks have sensible political opinions, i.e. support the free market, individual liberty and the end of welfare and affirmative action.”
“Boy, it sure burns me to have a national holiday for that pro-communist philanderer, Martin Luther King. I voted against this outrage time and time again as a Congressmen [sic]. What an infamy that Ronald Reagan approved it! We can thank him for our annual Hate Whitey Day.”
“Our priority should be to take the anti-government, anti-tax, anti-crime, anti-welfare loafers, anti-race privilege, anti-foreign meddling message of [KKK Grand Wizard David] Duke, and enclose it in a more consistent package of freedom.”
“Duke lost the election, but he scared the blazes out of the Establishment. If the official Republican hadn’t been ordered to drop out, he might have won…Duke carried baggage from his past, but voters were willing to overlook that. And if he had been afforded the forgiveness that an ex-Communist gets, he might have won.”
On the end of apartheid: “It is the destruction of civilization.”
“The criminals who terrorize our cities — in riots and on every non-riot day — are not exclusively young black males, but they largely are. As children, they are trained to hate whites, to believe that white oppression is responsible for all black ills, to ‘fight the power,’ to steal and loot as much money from the white enemy as possible.”
“Although we are constantly told that it is evil to be afraid of black men, it is hardly irrational. Black men commit murders, rapes, robberies, muggings and burglaries all out of proportion to their numbers.”
He also mocked the idea of renaming NYC after MLK (which is a silly idea, but nonetheless), saying it should be instead renamed ”Welfaria,” “Zooville,” “Rapetown,” “Dirtburg,” or “Lazyopolis.” Of the rally on the subject, he suggests that ”[n]ext time, hold that demonstration at a food stamp bureau or a crack house.”

I already knew Ron Paul was a bigot, but where are these quotes from?! I must know!
-R

One again, Ron Paul is a racist. A hard-core racist.

Oh thank you sweet baby jeebus…

stfuconservatives:

cognitivedissonance:

It’s over.

Summary:

  • Rick Perry had a meltdown. His train of thought derailed multiple times and he was slurring his words slightly.
  • Mitt Romney’s hair was jauntily tousled and he probably gets a boost from this.
  • Herman Cain proved he’s not a misogynist by referring to Rep. Nancy Pelosi as “Princess Nancy” and gave Jim Cramer a stroke by referencing 9-9-9 when Cramer said specifically not to at all.
  • Michele Bachmann insulted poor people by saying they could pay taxes by buying “two less Happy Meals.”
  • Ron Paul suggested students pay for college like they pay for cell phones and that getting rid of student loans will make the price go down. He alternated between Grandpa Simpson and soothsayer.
  • Rick Santorum was lost because he couldn’t talk about abortions and gay people killing America. 
  • Newt Gingrich got his ass handed to him by moderators for claiming “media is not reporting accurately how the economy works.” At a CNBC debate.
  • Jon Huntsman was the grown-up in the room, reminding everyone Americans watching this debate are hurting. They’re losing their jobs, their houses, and there’s no simple solution. He had ideas versus talking points. So he’s going to sink further than 1% in the polls.

Flawless summary.

Like I said last time, Comedy Central seriously needs to hold one of these debates. Moderated by John Stewart and Stephen Colbert. They are pure comedy.

"I wouldn’t have written that book if I was going to run for the presidency of the United States."

Rick Perry. The Texas governor conceded his book, “Fed Up!”, published last year, continues to be a goldmine for his detractors. 

Knowing about how Perry thinks is bad for his career. Interesting concept. (via liberalsarecool)

He later added “This is making it really hard to lie about what I plan to do to the country.”

Michele Bachmann Is Not a Doctor

stfubachmann:

On the campaign trail in Iowa, Rep. Michele Bachmann’s response to the argument that she lacks the experience to run for president has been to turn the argument on its head. The Minnesota congresswoman rattles off her resume: She was a federal tax litigation attorney; she and her husband started “a successful small company”; she fought the establishment in the state Legislature and Congress. 

But there was one résumé item that was missing: a Ph.D. Back in the late 1990s and early 2000s, when Bachmann traveled the state as an education activist, she went by “Dr. Michele Bachmann,” even though she had never obtained nor sought the advanced degree that’s a prerequisite for the title.And one more thing: Lest you think she doesn’t have the brains to do battle with Obama, she rattles off her degrees. “I’m not only a lawyer, I have a postdoctorate degree in federal tax law from William and Mary,” she told Fox News’ Chris Wallace in June. “I work in serious scholarship.”

and

This isn’t the only instance of Bachmann exaggerating her résumé. She continues to call herself a “tax attorney” or “tax litigation attorney” even though, according to the state of Minnesota, she is not currently authorized to practice law in the state. In an effort to prove her bipartisan appeal, she has stated that Minnesota Democrats squeezed her out of her old Senate district and put her in a new, liberal-leaning one—but the districts were drawn up by the courts, and her new district actually leaned red.

On occasion, she has also stretched the truth about her foster children (she had 23) to make a political point. In a 2008 interview with Politico, she noted that she was feeling the squeeze from high gas prices because she has such a large family. “Energy will be the big focus right now,” she said. “Every weekend now when I go home, I will go to the grocery store, I’ll buy food for the family. We have five kids and 23 foster kids that we raise. So I go to the grocery store and buy a lot of food.” The catch? She didn’t have any foster children in 2008; her permit to take in foster children had expired in 2000 and she had taken in her last child, a teenage girl, in 1998.

How the hell does this woman get away with blatantly lying about, well, everything?!

SORRY ASSHOLE - - but we, the poor and the middle class are crashing those servers.  We all hate YOU. 
You are not a separate political party.  You are not even a real movement.  You are the fake Koch Brothers’-owned ultra right-wing of an already right-wing Republican party.  Your constituents are so old and decrepit that you don’t have enough honest people to fill a Denny’s, let alone crash a fucking web server.
80 percent of Americans want rich people to pay their fucking taxes.  Stop lying, stop fucking around, stop pretending you speak for “the American people” and do your fucking jobs.

While tumblr was down, I decided to look into the 2012 election.

Let’s take a look at who’s running, shall we?

First up, we have the Democratic nomination. So far only two contenders:
President Barack Obama - Incumbent President of the United States.
Randall Terry - A pro-life activist from New York. He’s been arrested more than forty times and has run for public office twice, both times losing in the Republican primaries. Yeah, essentially he seems crazy. Check his Wikipedia page, do it.

Then, there’s the Republican nomination. So many hopefuls, some of them are really crazy. Here are the declared candidates:
John Davis - Businessman and construction worker from Colorado.
Newt Gingrich - Former Speaker of the House from Georgia.
Gary E. Johnson - Former governor of New Mexico.
Fred Karger - Political consultant and gay rights activist from California.
Andy Martin - Perennial candidate(one who frequently runs for offices with no or little success) from Illinois.
Jimmy McMillan - Perennial candidate from New York.
Ron Paul - Representative from Texas.
Jonathon Sharkey - perennial candidate, wrestler and vampire from Florida. That’s right, vampire. Twice a week he drinks the blood of his girlfriends and mistresses. He also drinks cow and pig blood. He claims to be a Satanist. He is also in favour of torturing and impaling certain criminals instead of jailing them. He’s been on several Fox News shows, and has been described by Tucker Carlson as, “not simply a vampire, a right-wing vampire.”

Republicans who have not officially declared, but have filed papers or created an exploratory committee for a run:
Herman Cain - Former Federal Reserve banker and businessman from Georgia.
Roy Moore - Former Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court.
Tim Pawlenty - Former governor of Minnesota.
Buddy Roemer - Former governor of Louisiana.
Mitt Romney - Former governor of Massachusetts.
Rick Santorum - Former Senator from Pennsylvania.

The Green Party and the Socialist Party are backing the same candidate:
Stewart Alexander - Activist and 2008 Socialist Party vice-presidential nominee.

A couple of independents:
Joe Schriner - Former journalist, author and perennial candidate from Ohio.
Robert “Naked Cowboy” Burck - Street performer from New York. Take a look at his page, please. This guy plays a guitar in Times Square in nothing but a cowboy hat, boots, and briefs. He is apparently a Tea Partier and that is the platform he’s running on.

Prospective candidates based on actions, statements, etc.

Democrat:
Jim Hightower - Liberal and populist commentator from Texas.

Republican:
Representative Michele Bachmann of Minnesota.
John R. Bolton - Former US Ambassador to the United Nations from Maryland.
Governor Mitch Daniels of Indiana.
Rudy Giuliani - Former mayor of New York City.
Jon Huntsman, Jr. - Former US Ambassador China and former governor of Utah.
Representative Thad McCotter of Michigan.
Sarah Palin - 2008 republican vice-presidential candidate and former governor of Alaska.
Donald Trump - Businessman from New York.

Libertarian:
Wayne Allyn Root - Entrepenur and 2008 libertarian vice-presidential candidate from Nevada.

Independent:
Ralph Nader - Attorney, consumer adovcate, and perennial presidential candidate from Connecticut.
Donald Trump - Should he fail to win the Republican nomination.

People who have stated they aren’t running.

Democrat:
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Howard Dean - Former governor of Vermont.
Russ Feingold - Former Senator of Wisconsin.
Representative Dennis Kucinich of Ohio.

Republican:
Sharron Angle
Governor Haley Barbour
Senator Scott Brown
Jeb Bush
Governor Chris Christie
Senator Bob Corker
Senator Jim DeMint
Mike Huckabee - He had no chance, but it still makes me feel better.
Governor Bobby Jindal
Governor Bob McDonnell
Carl Paladino
George Pataki
Representative Mike Pence
Governor Rick Perry
General David Petraeus
Senator Marco Rubio
Representative Paul Ryan
Senator John Thune
Representative Allen West

Independent:
Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York
Senator Bernie Sanders

So that’s what’s going on so far. A few people who make sense, a surprising number of crazy people, and some other people who probably won’t end up mattering.

Thoughts, comments, opinions, wagers?
