Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney called the federal government’s 2009 bail-out of the auto industry,“nothing more than crony capitalism, Obama style... a reward for his big donors to his campaign."  In fact, the biggest rewards ­­– a windfall of more than two billion dollars care of U.S. taxpayers ­­­–– went to Romney's two top contributors. 

John Paulson of Paulson & Co and Paul Singer of Elliott International, known on Wall Street as “vulture” investors, have each written checks for one million dollars to Restore Our Future, the Super PAC supporting Romney’s candidacy.

He's raising more money so he can lie and piss off newcasters:

CBS News's Bob Schieffer and MSNBC analyst Mark Halperin have spoken out in opposition to a new Romney campaign ad that features them discussing negative attacks by the Obama administration.

On "Face the Nation" this morning, Schieffer said he was "shocked" by the ad. "That was a question that I posed to David Axelrod -- not a statement," he said. "I have no affiliation with the Romney campaign. This was done without our permission."

On Twitter, Halperin wrote,“To echo what NBC News’ Tom Brokaw said in January, when his image and voice were used in a Romney campaign TV ad:‘I am extremely uncomfortable with the use of my personal image in this political ad. I do not want my role as a journalist compromised for political gain by any campaign.’”

Neither NBC nor MSNBC gave the Romney campaign permission to use the material, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt announced Sunday evening, and have asked the campaign to "refrain from doing so."

It's legal or he wouldn't have used Schieffer's discussion. We know CBS and NBC and MSNBC and CNN are all bumping into Obama's ass every time he stops.

Do you think Hillary gave him permission to use her statement? LOL! Maybe she did since she's the smartest one in Obama's administration and is jumping ship...

Romney might yet turn out to be the finest candidate
the corporate elite can buy.

Question is, who will be sitting in the White House,
Romney or some faceless billionaire?

What did Lincoln say about government of the people, by the people and for the people? He had no idea that a president could be the private property of some faceless American (maybe Chinese) billionaire.

The whole Republican agenda is pure treason on a scale so vast that only the edges of it can be
glimpsed.

Listen to your Republicans, moron.

They're screaming their heads off. Starting with Rush.

But what can we expect from 283 Republican Nazis in the Congress?

Romney should produce a campaign ad with an obama look-a-like launching his political career from the home of a look-a-like bill ayers. In the background they could run a montage of ayers and his wife's FBI mug shots, bomb destruction and deceased victims with photos of marx, lenin et al which would all would fade into a final scene where obama grins while watching ayers stomping around on old glory.

President Obama graduated from Harvard with high honors… HARVARD!
He put together the most brilliant campaign that catapulted him (the first African American) into the White house in 2008.
He changed all the failed policies, strategies and tactics that inept-Bush used that resulted in the worst terrorist attack on American soil (9-11) and Al Qaeda living free out in the open – to where now there hasn’t been a single successful terrorist attack on his as he single-handedly brought Osama bin Laden to justice…
That’s pure BRILLIANCE… and only an unpatriotic right-wing idiot wouldn’t see it as such.
Attention moron cow patty!!! Let's see...in your demented mind the marxist lord marshal b. h. obama is fabulous because he graduated from Harvard and President G. W. Bush is inept and he graduated from Harvard…and Yale?
And furthermore b. h. obama was amongst a democRat controlled congress for the last two years of President G. W. Bush's second term...Funny after democRats were elected in 2006 by useful idiots like you that was the beginning of sht and their sht continued on until 2010 when the march of the marxists was stopped by an angry America.
And furthermore you libelous a-hole...the first WTC attack was on clintoon's watch and clintoon allowed bin laden to carry on thus 9/11.
President G. W. Bush took bold steps against terrorism whereas clintoon and b. h. obama were cut and run. It's all recorded history...b. h. obama gave his chickensht 2-cents following 9/11 and he sucked BIG TIME...just like you suck trying to bestow accolades on the self-serving anti-Americanism marxist b. h. obama.
Man-up and tell this forum about the many close communist friends, associates and mentors like bill ayers that you have who advocate killing parents, planted bombs or had a bomb by their design blow up killing 3 like-minded comrades…And that particular bomb was intended for US Soldiers. Tell this forum how many pals and associates you have with criminal rap sheets like bill ayers? Surely you have some like minded criminal pals and associates? After all those kind of people are very OK for b. h. obama to closely associate with for many years and you voted for him. Obviously birds of a feather flock together…Ain’t dat right, bird brain?

Attention poop4brains!!! Obviously you are too stupid to know what to do with money so you go after the success of others. The fact is all you and your obama ilk want to do is take what does not belong to you like a pack of thieves. I do not see you going after bill gates or for the sake of argument the marxist b. h. obama is not exactly poor. And, that's besides the tax payer money he wastes on himself. Perhaps you should take your complaints to limousine liberals funding obama and criticize their net worth...hop to it, scooter.

Only a sleazy self-serving democRat like gary would try to twist the words of Lincoln for political gain...

President Abraham Lincoln,

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation, so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate—we can not consecrate—we can not hallow—this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Wow, alert the Media, Mormon Messiah Tricky Mitt Romney is able to raise funds in Utah.

"State spending increased at well over rate of inflation under Romney’s watch, estimated at 24%- more than $5 billion – over Romney’s final three years"

"Romney refused to endorse the Bush tax cuts in 2003, telling the state’s all-Democrat congressional delegation he wouldn’t be a cheerleader for the plan."

Right-Wing Billionaires Behind Mitt Romney

They're trying to buy a presidency - and they expect a big payoff on their investment

...The undisputed master of Super PAC money is Mitt Romney. In the primary season alone, Romney's rich friends invested $52 million in his Super PAC, Restore Our Future – a number that's expected to more than double in the coming months. This unprecedented infusion of money from America's monied elites underscores the radical transformation of the Republican Party, which has made defending the interests of 0.0001 percent the basis of its entire platform.

...That capitulation is evident in Romney's campaign. Most of the megadonors backing his candidacy are elderly billionaires: Their median age is 66, and their median wealth is $1 billion. Each is looking for a payoff that will benefit his business interests, and they will all profit from Romney's pledge to eliminate inheritance taxes, extend the Bush tax cuts for the superwealthy – and then slash the top tax rate by another 20 percent. Romney has firmly joined the ranks of the economic nutcases who spout the lie of trickle-down economics. "Support from billionaires has always been the main thing keeping those charlatans and cranks in business," Krugman noted. "And now the same people effectively own a whole political party."

Bishop Trick Mitt Romney is filthy, his donors are filthy and the entire GOPOX is filthy.
