Romney?

Stall?

Oh no. He too,couldn't resist the temptation of the Republican Public Restroom Tryst?

Say it ain't so?

Well,this certainly explains Romney's love of wearing too much makeup.

"After a partial recount Sunday in St. Lucie County, West trailed Murphy by 1,907 votes, or 0.57 percent, across the Martin-St. Lucie-northern Palm Beach district. West lost 132 votes and his Democratic Jupiter opponent dropped 667 with the re-tally of early ballots from Nov. 1 through 3,"

This is scary----Allen West gained OVER 500 votes in a recount that covered 3 days of early voting in ONLY one county. Al Gore got a recount, time to give a REAL black man a fair shake.
Allen West is a raving maniac and Uncle Tom who we're well rid of. Thank god Floridians had enough sense to flush this turd!

He lost, get over it, stop imagining fake conspiracies...

Sandy had another effect. Turning attention from Benghazi and a sinister GOP plot.
What's going to be discovered is that the Petraeus scandal is just part of a bigger ultra-rich Repulican scheme that leads to Benghazi and a plot to overthrow the election of President Obama, just like Republican operatives plotted with Iran to delay release of hostages so as to effect re-election of Carter.
Ultra-rich right wingers also tried a similar plan to overthrow President FDR.
Our country has always been for sale to the ultra-rich, if not by high ranking influential individuals it is by the gullible and unsophisticated who roam among us daily.
Since the sinister Atwater type/Republican scheme failed to foil Obama re-election, Republicans probably need this whole thing to go away quickly before it hurts them more in 2014 and beyond, but now they can't un-ring the bell they rang.
And to think it almost succeeded. The scandal broke several days before November 6 election as planned but Obama was able to contain it until after election. Sheer genius on his part.
Notice the GOP beginning to back-off on Benghazi?
The Republicans seem to have a lot of excuses for losing. But the fact is that only losers need excuses. So lets hear some more of your excuses loser.

God's "collateral damage" I suppose, just like an armed drone strike in Pakistan.

Wasn't it Pat Robertson or one of those RW TV preachermen

Whoa, talk about "collateral damage." Just to

A real black man? Not a fake black man?
I'm trying to think if I've ever seen
a fake black man. Hmmmmmm...
What do they look like?

Bob Allen, huh?

Is he the guy who made headlines in 2007 after being arrested for offering $20 for the opportunity to perform fellatio on an undercover male police officer in the restroom of a public park and was released on bail?

That guy?

Since the time of his arrest, Allen has maintained his innocence, stating that he believed the undercover police officer was trying to rob him, and that HE ONLY OFFERED TO PERFORM ORAL SEX because he felt intimidated by the black and muscular police officer.

That Bob Allen?

You could also ask Sarah Palin about giving a "real black man a fair shake." Rumor has it she's well acquainted with a certain real, tall, black basketball player...although I don't think money figured into whatever passed between them....LOL

We voted to commit civic suicide last week. We must stop arguing and get out the lube. We voted to screw our own kids out of their shot at the American Dream when we settled for more Obama and a the failed economy and skyrocketing unemployment that his Agenda demands.

How 'bout that Johnny Football! What a great weekend for College Ball.

HARRISBURG, PA.--- This just in off the wire: A rental truck loaded to the gills with cans of tomato soup, previously frozen turkeys, and various other non perishable items intended to be delivered to assist victims of Hurricane Sandy on the east coast was spotted today in a bay at a Quick-Lube station on the west side of town.

Witnesses had reported seeing cans of soup falling out of the open rear door of the truck onto the interstate and causing problems for drivers who were forced to swerve to avoid the projectiles, nearly resulting in several accidents. Jack Romney, of Harrisburg (no relation to the former Presidential Candidate, whose staff had been responsible for collecting the items in the truck at a "relief" event held in Dayton, Ohio) stated: " we saw those cans fallin out, and next thing I know Esther there, my wife, she darned near hit an SUV in the next lane at 65 miles an hour. It was really somethin nobody got hurt."

The travels and travails of the soup shipment seem to have taken on a life of their own as a metaphor for Mr. Romney's (the former candidate) failed Presidential campaign. A week ago, the truck had been mired in Steubenville, Ohio for several days with mechanical problems apparently caused when someone attempted to cook chicken cordon bleu and buttered asparagus on the vehicle's engine block.

Said Mr. Romney (the Harrisburg resident), "I think it may be time for me to change my last name".
