Mitt Romney and the 47 percent, joined at the hip

We've been hearing endless yammering about two seemingly unrelated things: that 47 percent of U.S. households don't pay income tax, and that Mitt Romney paid a lower effective tax rate on his $13.7 million of 2011 income than most American workers pay for just Social Security and Medicare.

The release of that video may have killed Romney's campaign completely. At first I was dubious, given the way these things blow over, but it's really tied to the bastard like an anchor now, isn't it?

It's wonderful when the words of an idiot like Mittens are used to defeat him. Hoist with his own petard! LOL

“That clock up there shows our national debt,” Romney said.“When I began this campaign, it started with $15 trillion. I mean, what is a trillion? It’s a thousand billions. It’s an unthinkable amount.. .&#8201 ;. When [Obama] came into office, there was just over $10 trillion in debt. Now, there’s over $16 trillion in debt. If he were reelected, I can assure you it will be almost $20 trillion in debt.”
Insane. Mittens unfortunately fails to note that Bush ran up the deficit by cutting taxes while increasing spending on his idiotic wars, and completely ignores the role played by the recession and the stimulus needed to help bring us out of it.

The entire debt just dropped out of heaven, magically, into Obama's lap if you believe this lying, flip-flopping idiot. For god's sake, don't be stupid enough to ELECT him and give us four years of this BS!!

That's not what this country is about. It's about progressing as a civilized, thoughtful society that's based on inclusion and gives everyone a shot at success. Apparently that's just too big of an idea for teapublitards to grasp.
I'm not sure why you quoted me for your rant. I do not belong to the Tea Party, I did not say "smaller government" or "end socialism". When I say I'm an independent thinker, I do not mean that I parrot a less mainstream political party. A thoughtful person would not pigeonhole someone into a group that he despises in order to vent his civilized insults and include people he doesn't like unto a boat out of their country.

In line with this, you may also know the current medical issues of the state. Several clients have initiated court actions against Johnson and Johnson. According to legal observers, the DePuy hip replacement recall should stand as a lesson to other device manufacturers to strengthen and certify the safety of their products.

Let's see....bitch... Whine... Moan. Yup, you're some form of teapublican but I understand your need to deny your affiliation. Most conservatives say they are independents these days, until the GOP comes back to its senses, that is.

Enjoy this little fact.

The electoral college is all but sewn up for President Obama.

ReTHUGlican voter fraud case threatens to blow election wide open!

http://www.newsobserver.com/2012/09/27/238246...

Appears that the party that screams 'voter fraud' at every opportunity and fraudulently drove ACORN out of business now has it's own massive election fraud scandal, one which threatens to expand to a number of states.

Naturally they're in denial and proclaiming 'zero tolerance,' but that wouldn't wash when ACORN and Dems said it, so why should it NOW??

You are BUSTED, GOP liars! LOL

Funny thing is, a guy on another thread will not accept that I am not a "rascally Democrat" hiding behind an independent facade.
