Simple can't make any valid arguments. All he does is throw out insults and repeat what Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity say. He is a typical blind sheep repug. Can't think for himself. He wants Romney as President, even though Romney is so stupid he can't figure out why you can't open windows on airplanes. Romney is kinda like the NFL replacement refs, he would screw everything up! Sad thing is, people like simple won't know it's screwed up unless Rush tells them it is.

One of the companies that Romney had invested in, whether knowingly or not, is ‘Cnooc’ which is a Chinese owned company that tried to buy the American company ‘Unocal’ in 2005, but was restricted from doing so on the basis that the merger represented a National Security risk, the deal was frowned upon by lawmakers and was subsequently scrapped.

After this catastrophe and in retaliation, the Chinese gave approval for Cnooc to invest in a deal with Iran in 2009…seven months after which the highly publicized deal was invested in by Mitt’s ‘blind’ trust. A clips which shows Mitt saying that a “Blind Trust” is just an ‘age-old ruse’ as you can stipulate what your blind trust is allowed to invest in, thereby making Mitt ultimately responsible for the investments his blind trust invested in, under his prior stipulations.

Last week, Ann Romney’s plane was forced to make an emergency landing due to an electrical fire that filled the cabin with smoke. On Saturday, Mitt was quoted saying the following:

"When you have a fire in an aircraft, there’s no place to go, exactly, there’s no — and you can’t find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don’t open. I don’t know why they don’t do that. It’s a real problem. So it’s very dangerous. And she was choking and rubbing her eyes. Fortunately, there was enough oxygen for the pilot and copilot to make a safe landing in Denver."

OK, I don’t expect a presidential candidate to know a great deal about airplanes. It’s not exactly in their job description. However, I would expect a well educated person that travels extensively by plane to know something as basic as air pressure. Honestly, did he never wonder why his ears pop? Did he never ask why oxygen masks drop in an emergency? Has he never heard the safety warnings about securing your own mask before helping anyone else secure theirs?

How to be Mitt Romney: 1) Open mouth. 2) Shove foot deep inside.

Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney is having a dreadful week. Romney claims that his business experience would solve our countries employment issues — while giving a nod to cutting regulations. Staples, Romney’s success story, pays their employees at a minimal pay rate and now many of Staples’ workers will now be unemployed.
Staples Is Closing Sixty Stores; Romney’s Success Story?

The Framingham, Mass., company anticipates annual savings of about $250 million by fiscal 2015′s end, so they’ll be faring well, however, touting the company as job creators is a distortion of facts. The facts are, that Staples pushed smaller businesses out, while bringing their large company in.When will politicians tout Mom and Pop stores, small local businesses and community, instead of privatization, enormous stores that go out of style leaving no means for the people left behind?

In other words, Mitt Romney’s businesses are failures. What would he do with the country?

We stopped shopping at Staples when we found out that Mitt Romney founded it. Will have nothing to do with that man or any of the businesses he has touched. Same with HP - we do not buy HP Computers due to Meg Whitman being their new CEO - she is the scumbag REP who wanted to be governor so bad that she wasted $160 million dollars on a campaign! Do you know how many people that money could have fed or housed? REPs are power and money hungry - and it is time to stop them!

Fortunately, it was only a new HDD, and it was on sale.

“I hate to say this, but if Ryan wants to run for national office again, he’ll probably have to wash the stench of Romney off of him,” Craig Robinson, a former political director of the Republican Party of Iowa, told The New York Times on Sunday.

Though Ryan had already decided to distance himself from the floundering Romney campaign, he now feels totally uninhibited. Reportedly, he has been marching around his campaign bus, saying things like,“If Stench calls, take a message” and “Tell Stench I’m having finger sandwiches with Peggy Noonan and will text him later.”

Harry Reid happens to be the highest ranked Mormon in politics at Senate Majority Leader. He and Mitt Romney also share a religion. However, in an interview with the Salt Lake Tribune, he said that he agreed with a recent opinion piece in the Huffington Post that states that “Romney is not the face of Mormonism.”

Here’s an excerpt from the Huffington Post piece:

When the news of Mitt Romney’s Florida video broke on Monday evening, I was incensed — but not for its political implications. His arrogant and out-of-hand dismissal of half the population of this country struck me at a visceral level, for it sullied the religion that he and I share — the religion for which five generations of my ancestry have lived and sacrificed, the religion whose official mantra is “to take care of the poor and needy throughout the world.” My first impulse was to rent an airplane towing a banner:“Mitt Romney is Not the Face of Mormonism!”

Judge Mitt Romney as you will, and vote for or against him as you will; but do not judge Mormonism on the basis of the Mitt Romney that was unveiled to the public this week. He is not the face of Mormonism.

What kind of stilwellian christian would support a politician that is a member of a non-christain cult (mormon)?

Ever Bablist or hollieroller that I have ever came into contact with has had nothing good to say about the Great Salt Lake Cult, yet now ever badly informed so-called christain republican will praise the cult inspired canidate for being a great believer just like them.

What really burns my ASS*HOLE is that my ONE vote for the halfbreed in washington is not going to count in this stupid, moronic, red state (Oklahoma), but what can one expect when a good christain people puts a known, huzzy and cheating, republican female in as govenor.

When are the intelligent people of the United States going to demand that a popular vote should determine who is president instead of letting Ohio and Florida select which FOOL gets elected?

old Chinese proverb:“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”

let’s summarize key GOP/Tea Party/Crazy Town economic principles. They can be boiled down like so:

1.Give a billionaire a bigger yacht and the poor still won’t have any fish; but they can watch the pretty boats in the harbor.(More tax cuts for the super rich coming.)
2.If you’re poor and hungry and need fish, borrow money from your parents to buy your own boat.(Romney explaining how to afford college.)
3.Deregulate the fishing industry and millions of new jobs on fishing boats will be created. Until, then, poke extra holes in your belt and tell yourself,“Hey, I’m on a diet.(GOP trickle down gospel.)
4.Quit crying about not having any fish; you just think you’re hungry; you just think you’re a victim.(Romney taped; talking to rich donors.)
5.Did you say you rake in $316 every two weeks!! Lady, we need to close the loopholes you’ve been abusing in the tax code and be sure you shoulder your share of the income tax burden.(Romney/Ryan plan to fix the deficit.)
6.What? Older Americans living on fixed incomes can’t afford fish. What do you expect the government to do? Give away fish sticks? That’s a hand out, not a hand up. And at age 89 granny can clank her walker down to the pier and get busy fishing.(Romney thinking about the 47%, also know in GOP circles as the “moocher class.”)

7.You say you already work on a fishing boat, but you don’t have health insurance and can’t afford to go to the doctor for checkups? And now your wife seems to be developing heart trouble? Well, if she has a heart attack, no problem. We already have places where you can take her. They’re called “emergency rooms.”(Romney explaining how we can help fifty million uninsured citizens during a CBS interview.)
8.If the people at the top of American society have billions of fish and the working poor, some of whom already hold down more than one job, have almost none, it’s still class warfare to hint that those at the top can’t eat all the fish they already have and might not notice if we raised their taxes slightly. Anyone who says we should raise taxes is anti-fishing and probably a communist.(Tea Party logic.)
9.Barack Obama can’t be president anyway, because he’s never shown us a fishing license.(More Tea Party logic.)

Or, maybe we sum it up so, reduce the New Conservative Gospel to the irreducible minimum:

Those of us who are doing well, who have big boats and can afford to eat caviar, well, frankly, what do you expect us to do if you fall overboard?

We’d like to toss you a life preserver. But that would be the same as a handout. And the “only thing that limits you is your God given talent and your own effort” and if you paddle really hard, we have faith that you can make it to shore without drowning.

A millionaire viewpoint:

I am worried like you about our nation: the large number of unemployed, American competitiveness, the need and cost of health care, the improvement necessary to education in our nation and the impact of all our basic needs on a rising deficit.”

“There is no right more fundamental to our republic than the right to vote. And yet there is a countrywide effort to prevent hundreds of thousands of people from voting. Many supporters of that suppression effort have admitted or implied that its purpose is to win an election by preventing voters thought to be of a different political persuasion from voting at all…And that represents as great a danger to our democracy as has ever existed from within our borders.”

“Among the many things that contributed to my wealth is the political society in which it was earned. The voter suppression effort is a direct assault on that society and on the democracy which it created. We who have the blessing of our millions need to know that protecting our assets demands preserving the democracy that made them possible.”

Why are repubs in everybody's face about accountability when they will never admit they are accountable for the crash of our entire economy, torture of people illegally detained, Bush (and everything criminal he did), Regan (and everything illegal he did - here's a hint, it's treason for a private citizen to negotiate with a foreign country), Nixon (here's a hint - he did the same fu*king thing, TREASON, when he negotiated a separate 'peace' plan with North Vietnam before he was even elected president).

I could go on and on, you fucks NEVER take responsibility for anything you do and you scream in our faces about taking responsibility. Then you wonder why your party is going insane? The entire shitfest that is the republican party is based on lies and it's going down hard.
