Rick Santorum campaigns that thinks the feds being involved in our schools is bad

BUT...

SANTORUM: I was against "No Child Left Behind" but I voted for it, even though it was against my principles because I'm a team player".

Rick Santorum campaigns that he's against bailouts

BUT

....he voted for fed rescue attempts of the steel industry.

Rick Santorum claims children born out of wedlock is driving our country towards disaster.

BUT

...he says he won't do anything to push his moral social views on the U.S. if he was President. So does this mean he'll do nothing to prevent the country from sure disaster?

No, there is no shane in today's politics

Newton Leroy Gingrich

Cheating
Claims he cheated on his wife because he was "working to hard and being too patriotic". This doesn't explain his hypocrisy since he was claiming higher morals when he was condemning Pres. Clinton for cheating on his wife while working in the Oval Office.

Pandering
While in central Florida, home of NASA, Newton Leroy says he wants to build a permanent lunar colony.

No, there is no shame in today's politics.

Mitt Romney

Pandering
I love the trees in Michigan. They are all the right height. I love cars...oh yeah, I love cars (you guys make cars here right). And the lakes, I love the lakes...not just the great lakes, but all the little lakes also.

Flip Flopping
"I'm a moderate republican" while running in Mass.
"I'm a severe conservative" while running in the GOP primary.

No, there is no shame in today's politics.

No need to be ashamed when you know the sheep will swallow anything you crap out.

Virginia's Republicare Bill Supporters:

-They believe Pres. Obama Health Care Reforms making it so insurance companies can't drop us when we get sick and need them is "government overreach", but forcing doctors to perform an unnecessary procedure to stick things in a woman's vagina when neither party has requested such, is not government overreach.

So what's Pres Obama's national approval rating in your world?

Must be Opposite-Day in your world all the time.

-I bet you think America greatly approved of Bush and his policies.

-What does America think of the Repub led House today?

- And you probably think America is "severly" backing the current repub primary clowns. Probably based on every repub pundit wishing you had someone else to offer.

Head back in the sand clown. You can probably convince yourself if you repeat your theory enough. <insert lmao here>

Newt Gingrich has bragged on debate stages how he "helped balance the budget" during the Clinton years -- suggesting that he alone has the experience the nation needs to balance the budget again.

HOGWASH!!!!

Speaker Gingrich led the charge AGAINST Clinton's tax increase, predicting dire consequences of lost jobs and economic upheaval if taxes were increased.

The Clinton tax increase passed the House WITHOUT A SINGLE REPUBLICAN VOTE -- courtesy of Newt's passionate opposition to it. The tax is one strong reason why revenues increased BEYOND merely balancing the annual budget -- led to annual budgetary SURPLUSES.

So now Newt is strutting on stage, actually CLAIMING CREDIT for those surpluses!!

P.S. Newt's proposed "tax reform" would add $7 TRILLION to the national debt by 2021, according to the US Budget Watch. He does this by further cutting revenues (taxes) on the wealthy and corporations.

Yes -- the SAME GUY who FOUGHT the measure that actually LED to budgetary surpluses is NOW promising to "balance the budget," all the while proposing a tax "reform" that adds TRILLIONS of new debt!

Priceless.

GOP lawmakers have no shame because they're all on the take from the Koch brothers through ALEC. See alecexposed.org to find out for yourself. They are NOT representing the people who voted for them. They are a new version of the Mafia, doing the bidding of billionaire plutocrats. Even the fascist 5 of the SCOTUS, Roberts, Alito, Thomas, Scalia, and Kennedy suckle at theit teats. Reclaim our democracy. Get out there and get active. Millions of people in the streets would send a strong message. Tag, you're it!

Virgina's Trans-Vaginal Governor McDonnell ended his chances as a Rethuglican VP pick with his "Dr. Megele" bill requiring mandatory rape of women who seek an abortion in his state.

Abortion rights are part of our constitution, firmly ensconced, and to require vaginal probing in order to use those rights is Naziesque.

Is there no honor among thieves? That, of course, is a rhetorical question, we know there is no honor among politicians. Politicans are almost all rich, and they are almost all lawyers, that is all you need to know to realize they are gonna fckk you and not even kiss you goodnight.
