On my way to the bank, I tuned into the right wing's number two information source, Glenn Beck. Glenn wasn't on but his replacement was for ending all entitlements.

If you receive an entitlement, its a hand out.

Great right wing thinking.

Did the dumbass even know what entitlements are? Doubtful.

This one is one of my faves:
In a long-forgotten tape from the 2002 Massachusetts governor’s race obtained by ABC News, Mitt Romney is seen touting his Washington connections and his ability to get millions of taxpayer dollars from the federal government.
“I am big believer in getting money where the money is,” Romney says on the video,“The money is in Washington.”
The video, which was surreptitiously shot by Democratic opponents of Romney on Oct. 16, 2002, shows him addressing a group called the New Bedford Industrial Foundation. The Power Point presentation he uses lists ways to improve economic development in Massachusetts, including “boost federal involvement.”
“I want to go after every grant, every project, every department in Washington to assure that we are taking advantage of economic development opportunities,” Romney tells the group.

In other words, he was doing his job as governor.

LOL! Did I tell you that I finally hired a beekeeper to deal with the growing bee population underneath the shed. There were about a million of them and at least 15 huge combs! Quite an interesting business, he makes $1000 a barrel of honey!

I get it.
If you lived a row home & the guy next door was an idiot that grilled hamburgers on his front porch & caught his house on fire, you would say, "What a dumbass" & not help put it out. The end result would be your home burning down.
The bailouts were to save this country's financial system & prevent a depression.
This was not rewarding anyone. It about saving our country.
Why did you ramp up the language?
What did I say that prompted that?

You, like most un-educated folks, talk to me like you know me...
In public speaking rule 1 is know your audience...

How do you know that I have not been the victim of say "Katrina" or some other disaster? So the burning house scenario you chose to present shows poor judgement on your part.

Would you help me dave, if my row house was on fire dave?

You don't sound very compassionate...
you sound envious and angry...

I know alot about natural disasters dave...

OK, I debunk your post yet again.
Joe never said any of those things.
If Joe still had his job, he could have added his wife to his policy.
In fact, Joe never said any of the things you claim were lies.
And furthermore, how exactly does this ad make me a liar?
This ad shows how Mitt Romneys changed people lives to the worse while making millions & not caring what happened to them.
Without Romnewy, this guy would have likely kept is better paying job, been able to add his wife to his policy, had money enough that his wife could have gone to the doctor earlier & who knows that outcome.
But hey, keep defending the man that sent thousands of people from secure employment down the path to despair while pocketing millions. Great for Mitt & his business, not so great for those left in the wake.
That is obviously your kind of guy - not giving a sh*t who he tramples to grab fists full of dollars.
You are one serious drama queen that bases alot of what you believe on "what ifs"

And let's take a look at the record specifically of Bain Capital, which Romney owned from 1992 to 2001.

• 1988: Bain put $10 million down to buy Stage Stores, and in the mid-'90s took it public, collecting $184 million from stock offerings. Stage filed for bankruptcy in 2000.
• 1992: Bain bought American Pad & Paper, investing $5 million, and collected $107 million from dividends. The business filed for bankruptcy in 2000.
• 1993: Bain invested $25 million when buying GS Industries, and received $58 million from dividends. GS filed for bankruptcy in 2001.
• 1994: Bain put $27 million down to buy medical equipment maker Dade Behring. Dade borrowed $230 million to buy some of its shares. Dade went bankrupt in 2002.
• 1997: Bain invested $41 million when buying Details, and collected at least $70 million from stock offerings. The company filed for bankruptcy in 2003.

Romney owned 100 percent of Bain Capital making him involved in all these deals, which represented more than 20 percent of the money Bain made from its investment funds between 1987 and 1995. Bain’s focus during all this time was leveraged buyouts, and it had not made venture investments since its earliest days.

Under the last Republican President this country lost 27% of our manufacturing jobs.

Since Obama ended the decline, we have gained 5% back.

Can we afford another Republican in the White House?
