Mitt(wit) Romney Pathetically Pummelled In Poll

President Barack Obama is on a roll. In a carefully orchestrated campaign game-plan, he has been stealing the thunder from Mitt Romney and the Republicans on  issues of importance to key voting blocs in swing states and the nation as a whole. The results of Obama’s plan are now paying off.

In recent months the President has secured his rock-solid grasp on the support of the gay community by publicly declaring his support for gay marriage as well as by repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and ceasing enforcement of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). He has locked-up the female vote by means of his support of the Equal Pay For Women Act, his advocacy for the re-instatement of the Violence Against Women Act and his rule requiring health insurers to provide co-pay-free contraception coverage for women. Then, just last week, he solidified his already overwhelming support from Hispanics (and other immigrant groups) by means of utilizing “prosecutorial discretion” so as to halt deportations of undocumented children who were brought to this country at an age of under 16 years, have lived in the U.S. for at least five consecutive years, have graduated high school (or obtained a GED) or joined our military, have no criminal record and are under the age of 30.

President Obama’s strategy has worked. A Bloomberg national poll was just released which reveals that Barack Obama has opened a significant lead over Mitt Romney. Obama leads Romney 53 percent to 40 percent among likely voters (a 13 point lead). The poll of 1,002 adults has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points for the full sample. Questions asked of the 734 likely voters have a margin of error of plus or minus 3.6 percentage points.

The Bloomberg poll’s findings are at odds with other recent national surveys that have found the two candidates tied or shown a slight advantage for Obama or Romney. Nonetheless, Real Clear Politics reports that of the eight most recent polls, Obama leads Romney in five and is tied in one while Romney leads in only two. The polls which show Obama in the lead (or tied)  are Reuters/Ipsos, Monmouth/Survey USA/Braun, IBD/CSM/TIPP, CNN/Opinion Research and the aforementioned Bloomberg. The Polls which show Romney leading are Rasmussen and Gallup Tracking. The Fox News poll has the candidates tied.

It is  interesting to note that the Bloomberg poll reflects Romney’s weaknesses more than the President’s strengths. The survey shows Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, has yet to repair the damage done to his image during the Republican primary. Thirty-nine percent of Americans view him favorably, about the same as when he announced his presidential candidacy last June, while 48 percent see him unfavorably — a 17-percentage point jump during a nomination fight dominated by attacks ads. A majority of likely voters, 55 percent, view him as more out of touch with average Americans compared with 36 percent who say the president is more out of touch.

Beyond Romney’s low favorability ratings, the poll reflects perceived weaknesses for the Republican challenger both in style and substance. Only 31 percent of likely voters say they’d want to sit next to Romney on a long airplane flight, compared with 57 percent who prefer Obama as a seat mate. Furthermore, about a third of likely voters rate Romney best at understanding their problems and struggles, and dealing with world leaders, while Obama draws majorities on both. And just 34 percent of respondents prefer Romney to Obama in appearing regularly on their TV and computer screens for the next four years; the President is the pick of 54 percent. Obama’s favorability ratings are the reverse of Romney’s, with 55 percent of Americans viewing the president positively, while 42 percent don’t.

Additionally, the poll also undercuts Romney’s central argument for his candidacy, suggesting that his background as a private-equity executive isn’t seen by voters as his greatest strength. Asked to name the most important qualification on Romney’s resume, a plurality of 41 percent cite his experience as governor of Massachusetts, while 34 percent say it’s his business experience at the Boston-based firm Bain Capital LLC.

Finally, Fifty-three percent of Americans approve of the job Obama is doing in the White House — the first time since March 2011 that he has broken the historic 50 percent threshold for U.S. presidents who have won re-election; 44 percent disapprove of his service.

Well played, Mr. President. Very well played.

Childish Michelle Malkin Has A Meltdown

Why does Fox News consistently avoid utilizing mature adults as guests on its programs? It is understood that the number of legitimate and serious conservative pundits is extremely limited, but Fox News seems to revel in giving airtime to child-like whiners. Consider the number of times that Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly have hosted the likes of Sarah Palin, Ann Coulter and Donald Trump rather than George F. Will or Peggy Noonan.

Wednesday night was a perfect example of Fox‘s studio serving as a psuedo-televised day-care for what appeared to be an over-tired and cranky guest. This time the bratty baby du jour was conservative blogger Michelle Malkin. She and Juan Williams were guests on the Hannity program and the topic was the alleged leaking of information from the Obama administration regarding proposed cyber attacks on Iran’s nuclear facilities.

Setting aside the actual content of the subject and debate between Williams and Malkin (and her cheerleader Sean Hannity), it was entertaining (and disturbing) to witness the histrionics of Michelle Malkin. She was so overly concerned with attacking her debate opponent that she resorted to making faces, eye-rolling, sneering and huffing. Most entertaining was her kindergarten-like schoolyard repetitive mocking of Williams when she exclaimed, “All you can do, Juan, is say, ‘Plame, Plame, Plame’ and ‘blame, blame, blame, Bush, Bush, Bush!” She also went on a childish name-calling tantrum when she said, “The American people are sick of the kind of snotty condescension from liberal elite journalists like Juan Williams.” But as they say, “a video is worth a thousand words”, so let’s enjoy the show:

It is people like Michelle Malkin that make blogging so fun for so many of us.

THE MALKIN MASH

(sung to the Bobby “Boris” Pickett song “Monster Mash”)

She was mouthing off with gab late one night
Malkin’s strange visage, an eerie sight
My blood pressure and pulse both began to rise
What’s up with that weird lazy eye?

She’s talkin’ trash
She did the Malkin mash
The Malkin mash
I think she has a rash
She does the mash
She must be smokin’ hash
She does the mash
She did the Malkin mash

She was ruminating on Obama’s speech
When her logic and her brains went to the beach
We knew she was lying by her growing nose
Inside her skull, a mighty wind blows

She’s talkin’ trash
She did the Malkin mash
The Malkin mash
I think she has a rash
She does the mash
She must be smokin’ hash
She does the mash
She did the Malkin mash

Dear Malkin was having fun
Her air-time had just begun
It was quite apparent that
Michelle had come undone

The show was rockin’ with her babbling sounds
Michelle spewing sentences without nouns
There were blood-shot lines in her crazy ass eyes
One thing missing was the strait-jacket guys

She’s talkin’ trash
She did the Malkin mash
The Malkin mash
I think she has a rash
She does the mash
She must be smokin’ hash
She does the mash
She did the Malkin mash

Out from the closet came the Coulter thing
He was wearing his decoder ring
Waving it round because he was pissed
Have you ever seen so much hair on anybody’s fist?

She’s talkin’ trash
She did the Malkin mash
The Malkin mash
I think she has a rash
She does the mash
She must be smokin’ hash
She does the mash
She did the Malkin mash

Now everything’s cool, Coulter hid his big hand
And Malkin’s diatribe was critically panned
It was one giant laugh if it was viewed
Next time we see that jerk, she is sure to be booed.

She’s talkin’ trash
She did the Malkin mash
The Malkin mash
I think she has a rash
She does the mash
She must be smokin’ hash
She does the mash
She did the Malkin mash

Will Romney “Cop” A Plea To Impersonating A Police Officer?

Let’s face it, Mitt Romney is a weird and awkward person. This child of wealth and privilege is so detached from the lifestyles of average working/middle class Americans that he appears to be some sort of strange space alien or one of those pod-hatched clones from the classic “Invasion of the Body Snatchers” film.

Remember how awkward it was when, while standing with a group of black children, he said “Who Let the Dogs Out”?

Remember the story about how he illegally strapped his pet dog in a kennel to the roof (or is it ruuf) of the family car and drove 12 hours while the terrified pooch defecated all over the vehicle? Heck, even Fox News claims he is “unfit to be President” as the result of that heartless action.

How about when he declared that “Corporations are people“?

Do you recall when he said it was humorous when his father closed a factory in Michigan? He said, ““One of most humorous I think relates to my father. You may remember my father, George Romney, was president of an automobile company called American Motors …  They had a factory in Michigan…and as the president of the company he decided to close the factory in Michigan…”

Remember when he assaulted a gay high school student and hacked off his hair?

Well, now we have another disturbingly awkward  Romney moment to comment about. NationalMemo.com reports that, “When Mitt Romney was a college freshman, he told fellow residents of his Stanford University dormitory that he sometimes disguised himself as a police officer – a crime in many states, including Michigan and California, where he then lived. And he had the uniform on display as proof.” The article goes on to say that Robin Madden, a fellow Stanford University student with Mitt Romney, recalls that Romney “called him and two or three other residents into his room, saying, ‘Come up, I want to show you something.’ and when they entered Romney’s room,  ‘laid out on his bed was a Michigan State Trooper’s uniform.’” Madden also said,

“He told us that he had gotten the uniform from his father. He told us that he was using it to pull over drivers on the road. He also had a red flashing light that he would attach to the top of his white Rambler. We thought it was all pretty weird. We all thought, ‘Wow, that’s pretty creepy.’ And after that, we didn’t have much interaction with him,”

The National Memo reports, “Romney may well have been breaking the law merely by donning a police uniform, committing a crime if he pretended to be a cop and a felony if he did so more than once. In both California and Michigan, any person convicted of fraudulently impersonating a police officer may be sentenced to up to one year in prison.”

Here is MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell reporting on Mitt Romney’s  dress-up game:

As far as we know, the Romney campaign has not yet “copped” a plea to this story.

HIGHWAY PATROL

 (sung to the Junior Brown song “Highway Patrol”)

Mitt’s got a star on his car and one on his chest,
He ain’t got a grip but he wants to arrest
Mitt’s mind has been lost out on this highway
So watch out what you’re doin’ when you’re drivin’ Mitt’s way
Mitt just breaks the law everywhere he goes
Dad’s the Guv’nor of the state. Mitt’s the highway patrol.

You know Romney and his daddy they’re both privileged and white,
Mitt’s siren a screamin’ with his flashin’ red light
If you’re not gay this might be your night
Mitt’s just keepin’ law and order for the radical right
If Mitt writes you out a ticket, then you better drive slow
Mitt’s just a doin’ his job, he’s the highway patrol.

Mitt’s the highway patrol, Mitt’s the highway patrol,
If your hair’s long then its gotta go.
He’ll be damn well dressed when he’s a C-E-O
But now Mitt’s doin’ his job as the highway patrol

(flip-flop break)

Romney’s drivin’ so fast like he shouldn’t do
Mitt’s dog on the roof is a startin’ to poo
He is in a race with a man who is black
Who let’s them marry if they’re gay, that’s a marriage attack
Obama and the Democrats have to go
Mitt’s just a doin’ his job, he’s the highway patrol.

Mitt’s the highway patrol, Mitt’s the highway patrol,
If your hair’s long then its gotta go.
He’ll be damn well dressed when he’s a C-E-O
But now Mitt’s doin’ his job as the highway patrol

Mitt’s just a doin’ his job
He’s the highway patrol.

Study Proves That Fox News Makes You Stupid

As if you did not already know, please be advised that watching Fox News makes you stupid. Indeed, the most recent (of many) studies reveals that watching Fox News actually makes you less informed than watching no news at all.  Repeat: People who watch no news at all are better informed than those who watch Fox News. Anyone surprised?

Business Insider reports that Fairleigh Dickinson University’s newest PublicMind survey found that someone who watched only Fox News would be expected to answer 1.04 domestic questions correctly compared to 1.22 for those who watched no news at all. Those watching only “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”answered 1.42 questions correctly and people who only listened to NPR or only watched Sunday morning political talk shows answered 1.51 questions correctly.

news
Thus, those who watched no news—answering questions by guessing or relying on existing knowledge—fared much better than those who watched the most popular 24-hour cable news network (i.e. Fox News). This is a follow-up to a 2011 survey of 612 New Jerseyans that found, among other things, that those who watched Fox News were 18 points less likely to know that Egyptians overthrew their government than those who watch no news at all.
Here is a partial list of confirmed misinformation which Fox News has fed to its viewers courtesy of PolitiFact.com:
  1. Fox said less than 10% of Obama’s Cabinet appointees have worked in the private sector. – False
  2. Fox said, White House Political Director served as right-hand man to the ACORN chief – False

Sarah Palin: The Gaffe Gift That Keeps On Giving

Sarah Palin was a gift to Democrats during the 2008 Presidential election cycle. She not only sunk any chance that the Republicans had of keeping the White House, but her constant mishaps and blunders entertained even those who do not follow politics. Remember when she could not name a single newspaper or magazine which she reads to keep current on the affairs of the nation? Remember when she said health care reform “is all about job creation”? Remember when she could not remember Joe Biden’s name (O’Biden)? Remember when she was incapable of describing the job of the Vice President to an elementary school student? Best of all, she inspired Tina Fey to create one of the most accurate and funny politician portrayals in the history of comedic politician portrayals.

Thankfully, the former ex-quitting half-term Governor of Alaska continued to entertain us even after she blew the election. In May of 2010, Palin appeared on Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor” to talk about the controversy over the “National Day of Prayer”, during which, she boldly announced that the US should base its laws on The Bible, just as the Founding Fathers intended. Speaking of the Founding Fathers, when asked about the “under God” reference in the Pledge of Allegiance, Palin said, “If it was good enough for the Founding Fathers, its good enough for me” (of course the Pledge of Allegiance was not written until more than 100 years after the Founding Fathers). How about when she wrote in her book “America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag” that, “Susan B. Anthony saw the fight for the rights of the unborn as part of the broader fight for women’s rights.”? Remember her 2009 interview on “Good Morning America” when she referenced the fictitious “White House Department of Law”? Was there anyone who did not laugh out loud in 2011 when, during her “bus tour” stop in Boston, she said that Paul Revere rode on horseback and “”warned, uh, the British that they weren’t going to be taking away our arms, uh, by ringing those bells…”” (Even American school kids of course,  are  aware Revere actually rode from Boston to Lexington warning the COLONISTS that the British Army was marching in their direction).

Guess what? The “Sarah Palin Stupid Train” continues to roll down the tracks of our tears of laughter!

We can thank the Topeka Capital-Journal of Kansas for exposing Sarah Palin’s latest blunder. It seems that lots of Kansas voters received a robo-call from Palin in which she solicited them to vote for the Tea Party endorsed Ted Cruz for the U.S. Senate. She said, “Ted Cruz is a true conservative you can trust to stand on principle and change the way Washington does business. Today, through May 25, please vote early for Ted Cruz for U.S. Senate.” Palin ended the call by saying, “Join me. Choose Cruz for Senate.”

That is quite a ringing endorsement from Sarah Palin. Question is, why would she be asking Kansans to vote for a man who is running for the U.S. Senate seat in TEXAS?

Sometimes  you just can’t make this stuff up!

ALASKAN PIE

(sung to the Don McLean song “American Pie”)

A long, long time ago…
I can still remember
Palin’s slutty flight attendant style
And when she blew her only chance
With John McCain in the Big Dance
In light of the pregnancy of her child

In February she did shiver
When Levi sold her down the river
Bad news at her doorstep
She didn’t have no more pep

The allegations she denied
Of all those gifts that she did hide
She took Alaskans for a ride
As she cajoled and lied

So bye-bye Miss Alaska bye-bye
You were shady and darn lazy
With a crazy beehive
And your background boys were making turkey head pie
Then you quit on the third day of July
Quit on the third day of July

Did you quit the job you love
After talking with God up above?
Did the good Lord tell you so?
Are you still pals with Plumber Joe?
Do dead fish still “go with the flow”?
And can Todd’s sister score me some good blow?

Well you know that your prospects are grim
’cause you’re way way out there on a limb
You’re sure to have the blues
Man, you screwed up those interviews

You’re just a lonely mid-aged “hockey mom”
With real deep frustration and a man that’s dumb
You’re just a third rate school alum
Today your future died

We started singing
Bye-bye Miss Alaska bye-bye
You were shady and darn lazy
With a crazy beehive
And your background boys were making turkey head pie
Then you quit on the third day of July
Quit on the third day of July

Now for two years all you did was drone
Remember Sarkozy on the phone?
But just what will your future be?
Will you pester us like a has-been queen?
Will you pout and whine like a spoiled teen?
In a voice that sounds so shrill and mean,

Oh, and when you leave Wasilla town
Take along your beauty pageant crown
And bridges that you burned
Oh, please never return
And those hits you took will leave some marks
A “Barracuda” is no shark
And you were always in the dark
Today your future died

We were singing
Bye-bye Miss Alaska bye-bye
You were shady and darn lazy
With a crazy beehive
And your background boys were making turkey head pie
Then you quit on the third day of July
Quit on the third day of July

Helter skelter you are sure to swelter
The ice in your veins may even melt-ah
Ethics problems coming fast
You’re landing hard on your ass
No throwing stones in a house of glass
When you’re starring in a demon cleansing mass

Now your thinning hair reeks with perfume
You’re a spaceman cuz you see the moon
Your fans would shout and dance
Oh, to your “drill baby drill” chants!
Katie Couric made you squirm and squeal
And that was when your fate was sealed
Do you recall what was revealed
The day your future died?

We started singing
Bye-bye Miss Alaska bye-bye
You were shady and darn lazy
With a crazy beehive
And your background boys were making turkey head pie
Then you quit on the third day of July
Quit on the third day of July

Oh, and then that look upon your face
Not knowing a Supreme Court case
Forget about the Bush Doctrine
So come on: jack be nimble, jack be quick
Sarah Palin’s no “Maverick”
Cuz she’s just a “Barbie” to Todd’s “Ken”

As we watched you on that debate stage
Your hands were clenched in fists of rage
Everyone then could tell
You were praying for the bell
And as you hoped that you could land a right,
To salvage something of the night
We saw Biden laughing with delight
That day your future died

Joe was singing
Bye-bye Miss Alaska bye-bye
You were shady and darn lazy
With a crazy beehive
And your background boys were making turkey head pie
Then you quit on the third day of July
Quit on the third day of July

Palin’s a girl who has the blues
And she cannot handle interviews
She quit her job and walked away
She could not take it any more
She hightailed it right out the door
Just like a scared child, she up and ran away

And in the streets the voters beamed,
The good Lord had fulfilled their dreams
Sherry Johnston was tokin’
The “barracuda” broken
We did not really want to boast
But “Mama Bear” was finally toast
She’ll write about it through her ghost
That day her future died.

And we were singing
Bye-bye Miss Alaska bye-bye
You were shady and darn lazy
With a crazy beehive
And your background boys were making turkey head pie
Then you quit on the third day of July
Quit on the third day of July

We were singing
Bye-bye Miss Alaska bye-bye
You were shady and darn lazy
With a crazy beehive
And your background boys were making turkey head pie
Then you quit on the third day of July
Quit on the third day of July

Obama Endorses Gay Marriage While Romney Endorses Gay Bashing

Timing is everything.

In a speech delivered earlier this week, President Barack Obama made the historic announcement that he endorses same-sex marriage. He is the first sitting President of the United States to offer such support to the gay community. President Obama’s announcement is certain to bolster his already overwhelming approval from the gay community inasmuch as it is coupled with his administration’s call for the repeal of the military’s “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” policy and his decision to order the Justice Department to stop defending the federal Defense of Marriage Act. In retrospect, the timing of this announcement was perfect.

As for Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney,… not so much. Romney is also in the spotlight this week relative to the gay community but the news for him is all bad. CBS News reports that at a time when Romney is not well defined and seeking to introduce himself to general-election voters, The Washington Post has published a story about the Republican nominee’s youth that is extremely unflattering. According to five of Romney’s exclusive prep-school classmates, when Romney was 18 years old he rounded up a group of friends to pin down another student who happened to be gay and haphazardly cut his hair while the boy was terrified and reduced to tears. Think bullying. The paper recounted another incident in which Romney shouted “atta girl” to a different student at the all-boys’ school who, years later, came out as gay. Also last week, Romney’s openly gay foreign policy spokesman, Richard Grenell, resigned, implying that social conservatives had driven him out of the job, which thrust the gay issue into the campaign. Romney of course, not only opposes gay marriage, but civil unions as well. It is evident that whatever little  support from the gay community Mitt Romney once had (in 1994 he proclaimed himself “better than Ted Kennedy” on matters of gay rights), it will now be decreasing rapidly if it has not been completely lost.

There is a particularly disturbing aspect to Romney’s reaction to the bullying incident in high school. During an interview on Fox News (where else?), Romney laughingly remarked, “I participated in a lot of hijinks and pranks during high school and some may have gone too far. And for that I apologize. If there was anything I said that was offensive to someone, I certainly am sorry about that. There was no harm intended.” He want on to say he did not remember the incidents from long ago, but didn’t dispute that it happened. He stressed that he didn’t know either student was gay. He said, “I had no idea what that individual’s sexual orientation might be.” So which one is it? If Romney is to be believed when he says he does not remember the incidents, then how can he remember that he had no idea of his victims’ sexual orientations? He cannot have it both ways. And making matters worse, he actually laughed while speaking about these incidents and referred to bullying as mere “hijinks and pranks”.

Romney’s response and recollection (or lack thereof) of the events does not sit well with one of his former classmates who was a witness to the hair-cutting event. CNN reports that Phillip Maxwell confirmed the story, first reported in the Washington Post. However, he insisted the incident was far worse than a high school prank. He said, “I’m a lawyer. I know what an assault is. This kid was scared. He was terrified. That’s an assault.” Maxwell went on to say, “He (Romney) says he doesn’t remember it and I find it difficult to believe. It’s unfortunate that Mitt simply hasn’t owned up to his behavior.” He also said the episode is “relevant” in the campaign as a window into Romney’s character.

Cheers to President Obama and Jeers to Mitt Romney.

ROMNEY’S NO GOOD

 (sung to the Chuck Berry song “Johnny B. Goode”)

Way down Louisiana and in New Orleans
Mitt Romney looked dejected in his pressed blue jeans
He’s not very welcomed in that neighborhood
He’s not a country boy and they think he’s no good
They never ever saw a person lie so well
They are not really so sure that Mormons can avoid hell

No No
No Romney No
No
No Romney No
No
No Romney No
No
No Romney No
No
Romney’s no good!

Mitt Romney was a pro-choice star but then he went back
He fathered RomneyCare and that is a fact
Oh, the Mitt(wit) penned his dog in a kennel he made
Up on top of his car, the dog was afraid
People passing by they would point and say
Who treats a dear family pet that way?

No No
No Romney No
No
No Romney No
No
No Romney No
No
No Romney No
No

GOP Rep. Allen “Wild Wild” West Is A Joke

The state of Florida is home to one of our nation’s most inept and moonbat-crazy members of Congress. I’m speaking of none other than Allen West, the self-proclaimed Tea Partier and former Army lieutenant who was relieved of his command and fined as the result of his violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

West was elected to the U.S House of Representatives with a gang of other Tea Party supported Republicans in the 2010 mid-term elections. He was even endorsed by Sarah Palin, so that should tell you something. Since being elected he has not done much legislating, but he has revealed himself to be a suitable candidate for admittance to the psychiatric ward. Take a look at a few of the things he has publicly stated as reported in the Broward Palm Beach New Times:

!. He appears regularly on Fox News (where else?) where he has referred to President Barack Obama as a “low-level socialist agitator” whose “Marxist demagogic rhetoric” indicates a “Third World dictator-like arrogance.” ;

2. In remarks made to a conservative woman’s group in Boca Raton, Florida, West indicated how he wanted the United States to look: “In ancient days, the most feared, the most vicious warriors known to man were the Spartans,” said West. “Never known to retreat, never known to surrender.” He then told the women, Because the Spartan women at the age of 9 gave up their male sons, and their male sons went into a training that was called the Agoge and they stayed in that training for the next 11 to 12 years,” he said. “And when they finally qualified, when they were finally ready to join the ranks of the Spartan army, it was not their father who gave them their cloak and their shield. It was their mother who gave them their shield. And when the Spartan mother gave that young Spartan warrior his shield, she gave him this basic commandment: ‘Spartan, here is your shield. Come back wearing this shield or being borne upon it.'” What is West talking about? Is he advocating a military state?

  •  This is what Allen West had to say about critics of the Marines who urinated on the corpses of Taliban soldiers: “As for everyone else, unless you have been shot at by the Taliban, shut your mouth, war is hell.” Apparently, West is unaware that there’s a constitutional amendment that allows us to not shut our mouths, and it specifically prevents nuts like Allen West from making us do so.
  • The Palm Beach Post reports that West said this about Obama supporters: “I must confess, when I see anyone with an Obama 2012 bumper sticker, I recognize them as a threat to the gene pool.”
  • This is what West said to fellow Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz in an email: “…You are the most vile, unprofessional, and despicable member of the US House of representatives…You have proven repeatedly that you are not a lady.”

Crazy stuff indeed, but let’s take a look at what Allen West said just this week about his fellow members of Congress. CNN reports, that when West was asked at a town hall meeting how many members of Congress are “card-carrying Marxists”, he responded by saying: “I believe there’s about 78 to 81 members of the Democratic Party that are members of the Communist Party.” He went on to say, “These members of Congress advocate the type of policies that have put Europe on the brink of economic and fiscal collapse, and are driving the United States in the same direction. ”

Wow! West is truly a modern age Joe McCarthy. Problem is, West seems ignorant of the fact that none of those European countries in economic turmoil are communist nations. Then again, ignorance has never been a stumbling block to advancement within the Republican Party. Just ask the aforementioned Sarah Palin who recently suggested Allen West as a possible GOP Vice Presidential nominee!

STRANGE ONES ON THE RIGHT

(sung to the Frank Sinatra song “Strangers In The Night”)

Strange ones on the right,
Fox News romancers
Not so very bright,
With our finances
This Tea Party love
Should be viewed as taboo

Palin shouting lies
And fear inciting
Rand Paul is hostile
And so damn frightening
Boehner has no heart
McConnell has no clue

Strange ones on the right,
Abnormal people
They are strange ones on the right
Not one sane moment
They should be in a freak-show
Little do they know
It would just enhance our day
If like Bristol they’d dance away and –

And on Fox every night,
They’re all together
Lovers on the right
In love forever
It’s an ugly sight
Those strange ones on the right

(Tea-Bagging break)

Don’t look now just glance away
Here comes their jailbird Tom Delay

You can join their fight
And hang together
Only if you’re white
Birds of a feather
Taking their last flight
Those strange ones on the right

Is Mitt(wit) Romney A Liar, Stupid or Both?

Lynnrockets hereby apologizes for the long break between posts. Thanks to those of you for sending emails and inquiring if everything is “OK”. Rest assured that all is well. Sometimes life gets hectic however and some things require more attention than others. In short, I was simply a little too busy with my real job for the last month and something had to make way for awhile. Unfortunately, that “something” was Lynnrocket’s Blast-Off. In an attempt to be “fair and balanced” (pun intended) however, the next time that things get very busy, something else will be temporarily put on hold rather than this blog. After all, they say a person can go about three weeks without eating.

In any event, let’s get back to business.

The proverbial “Fat Lady” is now singing. The 2012 Republican primary race is over. Newt Gingrich has conceded that rival Mitt Romney is “far and away” the most likely candidate to win the Republican nomination. Rick Santorum has lost a string of primaries and may even lose to Romney in his very own home state of Pennsylvania. Bring on Romney v. Obama!

Rest assured that this will be an uphill battle for Mitt Romney. All seven of the most recent nationwide polls (Rasmussen, USA Today/Gallup, CNN/Opinion Research, McClatchy/Marist, PPP, Reason-Rupe and even Fox News) presently reveal that Obama will beat Romney in a head-to-head election. Additionally, all six of the most recent polls (Gallup, Rasmussen, CNN/Opinion Research, McClatchy/Marist, Reason-Rupe and Fox News) reveal that President Obama’s job approval rating is on the rise. Yet, those are not the only problems facing Romney.

Mitt Romney’s biggest obstacle to getting elected may be his own ignorance and/or his penchant for lying. By now, everyone is aware that Romney  has switched positions on most every single policy stand he has taken since being in politics (See abortion, Romneycare, gun regulation, immigration, etc.), but he also has a problem telling the truth. For the last several weeks, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow has been posting columns on her “The Maddow Blog” titled “Chronicling Mitt’s Mendacity” in which she reveals the many lies of Mitt Romney. Maddow’s chronicles have thus far added up to twelve lie-filled volumes. Please do yourselves a favor and read them all here.

Here is a just a sampling of some of Mitt Romney’s most outrageous whoppers since February of this year:

1. Campaigning in Wisconsin, Romney complained, “The president put an ad out yesterday, talking about gasoline prices and how high they are. And guess who he blamed? Me!”

That’s not true; Obama’s ad does not blame Romney for gas prices. It simply tells voters that the oil companies are supporting Romney’s campaign.

2. In an ad, the Romney campaign argued that Obama “has managed to pile on nearly as much debt as all the previous presidents combined.”

That’s not even close to the truth.

3. In an interview with James Pethokoukis, Romney insisted that Obama has “launched an all-out attack on small business.”

In reality, Obama has cut taxes on small businesses, eased the process that allows small businesses to be created, and streamlined the patent process.

4. Rolling out his new stump speech this week, Romney claimed, “Barack Obama presided over the first trillion-dollar deficit in American history.”

That’s incredibly dishonest. The deficit Bush left for Obama to clean up was $1.3 trillion on the day Obama was inaugurated.

5. The Romney campaign argued this week that Romney, during his only term as governor, had “four years of budget surpluses.”

Actually, Romney left his successor a $1.3 billion deficit to clean up.

6. In the same speech, Romney said, “Through it all, President Obama has failed to even pass a budget.”

That doesn’t even make sense — presidents don’t pass budgets; Congress passes budgets.

7. In the same speech, Romney said, “As I have said many times before, the President did not cause the economic crisis, but he made it worse.”

Romney is lying because he’s also said the American economy has improved under Obama.

8. Romney argued this week, “There’s no question that when [President Obama] ran for office, he said he wanted to see gasoline prices go up.”

No, he didn’t.

9. Romney also told Fox News’ Bret Baier this week about President Obama, “This is a president [who] simply does not have experience in tough situations.”

That’s ironic coming from a coddled multi-millionaire from a powerful, wealthy family, but it’s also blatantly untrue. Obama has experience leading the nation during a time of multiple ongoing crises. Love him or hate him, the economic crisis, the war in Iraq, the war in Afghanistan, the strikes on bin Laden and al Qaeda, and the offensive in Libya count as “tough situations” — tougher than anything Romney has ever seen in his entire life.

10. Romney promised, “Instead of raising taxes, I will cut them.”

Well, he’d cut taxes for most folks, but for those working families struggling most, the Romney plan calls for a tax increase.

11. Romney also told Mississippi Republicans about the president, “He was going to cut the budget deficit in half. He’s doubled it.”

This is one of Romney’s favorite lines, but it’s simply absurd on its face — he’s either lying or he’s bad at arithmetic. When Obama took office, the deficit was about $1.3 trillion. Last year, it was $1.29 trillion. This year, it’s on track to be about $1.1 trillion. Does Romney not know what “double” means? (Even if we believe Romney is confusing the words “deficit” and “debt,” it’s still wrong. The only modern presidents to double the debt on their watch were Reagan and George W. Bush. Obama inherited a $10 trillion debt, and it’s nowhere near $20 trillion.)

12. As Paul Krugman noted, Romney also argued that gasoline prices are high because President Obama won’t allow unrestricted drilling in the Gulf of Mexico and the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

What Romney’s saying just isn’t true.

13. Romney told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly, “Time and again, I pointed out I’m not in favor of a health care plan that includes a national mandate.”

Time and again, Romney has said he’s in favor of a health care plan that includes a national mandate.

14. Commenting on his health care reform law in Massachusetts, Romney told voters in Ohio this week, “Early on, we were asked if what you did in Massachusetts should be something you’d have the federal government do? I said no from the very beginning. No. This is designed for our state and our circumstance.”

He was lying.

15. Romney said of Obama this week, “He gave a speech the other day at his State of the Union address. He didn’t even mention the deficit or the debt.”

Obama mentioned the deficit and the debt six times in his State of the Union address.

16. Romney argued, “President Obama wants to raise your taxes; I’m going to cut them.”

Actually, Obama only wants to raise taxes on those making over $250,000 a year. Romney proposes massive tax breaks, except for those struggling most — their taxes would go up under Romney’s plan.

17. Referring to the president, Romney argued, “He also promised he’d cut taxes for middle-income Americans. Hasn’t done that, either.”

Actually, Obama has cut middle-class taxes several times over the last three years. If this is supposed to be one of Romney’s key areas of interest, how could he not have noticed this?

18. Romney argued this morning, “You know how many trade agreements this president has negotiated? Zero.”

Panama, Colombia, and South Korea know better.

19. Romney claimed that Syria is Iran’s “route to the sea.”

Iran has 1,520 miles of its own coastline — and doesn’t share a border with Syria.

20. Romney told Fox News’ Neil Cavuto he tried to “remove” the contraception mandate in Massachusetts, but the state legislature wouldn’t let him.

That’s not what happened.

Paul Krugman, noting Romney’s dishonesty, recently said the Republican presidential candidate “seems confident that he will pay no price for making stuff up.” Given the frequency with which he repeats falsehoods, it seems clear Krugman was right.

And the list goes on and on and on and on and……..

ROMNEY’S NO GOOD

 (sung to the Chuck Berry song “Johnny B. Goode”)

Way down Louisiana and in New Orleans
Mitt Romney looked dejected in his pressed blue jeans
He’s not very welcomed in that neighborhood
He’s not a country boy and they think he’s no good
They never ever saw a person lie so well
They are not really so sure that Mormons can avoid hell

Mitt Romney was a pro-choice star but then he went back
He fathered RomneyCare and that is a fact
Oh, the Mitt(wit) penned his dog in a kennel he made
Up on top of his car, the dog was afraid
People passing by they would point and say
Who treats a dear family pet that way?

No No

Fox News: People Making Over $ 250,000 Are Not Rich, But Maids Making $ 60,000 Are Rich

Today is another one of those days where somebody else says something so much better than I could. In a wonderfully explanatory column, Mark Engler of DissentMagazine.org exposes another Fox News hypocrisy. The column is titled, “Why The $ 60,000 Per Year Housekeeper Is A Right-Wing Nightmare” and it reveals how Fox News commentators and guests will do everything in their power to idolize the rich and demonize those in the working class. Following is this column and please visit Dissent Magazine here for other great reads.

Why the $60,000 Per Year Housekeeper Is a Right-Wing Nightmare

Mark Engler – February 21, 2012 10:00 am

Conservatives these days walk a tricky line when it comes to wages. On the one hand, they strive to defend the just earnings of capitalist lords of enterprise. On the other, they try hard to foster resentment of any working people who might actually enjoy living wages and decent benefits. In a nutshell: while Wall Street bankers deserve every penny they get, public school teachers—to take just one example—are overpaid mooches who are leeching off society.

The latest hubbub illustrating this strange double standard came after the New York Times reported on a new contract between the New York Hotel Trades Council (UNITE HERE Local 6), representing city hotel workers, and the Hotel Association of New York, representing hotel owners. Over the course of a seven-year contract, hotel housekeepers will have received (cumulatively) a 29 percent raise, with a typical worker going from making around $46,000 per year to earning almost $60,000 per year. The contract also includes good union health insurance and other benefits.

It is a great contract, and members of the union should be congratulated for their work in securing it. But for some conservatives, the idea that a lowly hotel maid could possibly be paid $60,000 is an abomination. Fox News analysts called it a “nightmare.”

There’s plenty to say about their disgust. The first thing to note is the sheer hypocrisy of the right-wing revulsion. Back when we were debating the expiration of the Bush tax cuts, conservatives repeatedly rallied to assert that those making $250,000 per year were not at all rich. Among other absurdities, their apologetics produced the audacious spectacle of a University of Chicago professor with a household income of more than $450,000 per year complaining about how he is just barely getting by, noting that he and his wife “occasionally eat out but with a baby sitter, these nights take a toll on our budget.”

Fox News types worked overtime to back up such sob stories from those they dubbed the “so-called rich.” On the very same program where the right-wingers decried hotel workers’ $60,000 pay as a “nightmare” (Varney & Co.), analyst Chris Cotter previously asserted that, if you’re “in New York or San Francisco,” living on $250,000 is “very, very tough.”

It’s interesting to look a little more at what’s behind this contradiction. The conservatives aren’t really basing their criticism on the idea that New York City hotel rooms are overpriced. To do so would involve examining the price of a room and determining why it costs what it does. You’d have to figure out what percentage of the room rate goes to the workers who actually keep the hotel running, how much to executive compensation, how much to corporate profits, and so forth. Going down that road could lead to some uncomfortable questions, so they avoid it.

Nor are they standing up for the hotel owners, arguing that the new contract violates some tenet of capitalism. It doesn’t. The agreement was a product of employees collectively negotiating with their employers in fair market fashion. There are no government “handouts” here, no idle slackers who are not working for a living. In fact, according to the Times, the hotel owners’ association is very pleased with the contract: “In a constructive and cooperative spirit, we were able to reach this early agreement, which is good for our members, the union, and the city of New York,” association president Joseph E. Spinnato said.

So what’s the conservative objection really about? It comes down to their opinion of what a hotel housekeeper is worth. It’s a matter of principle: heaven forbid that a maid should have decent health insurance and make a living wage—even if that wage is a fraction of what elites themselves have a “very, very tough” time making due with.

I have a dog in this fight. In addition to being generally pro-labor, several family members of mine work with the hotel, casino, and restaurant employees union (although not the local in question). For this reason, I’m thankful to Nathan Newman for his fine Huffington Post commentary, “Why Shouldn’t Housekeepers Make $60,000 Per Year?”

Newman gives some important context. How, he asks, did we get “to the point that it is a bit ‘shocking’ in some sense that workers in what is seen as a low-wage industry are making a living wage?” He answers:

The disappearance of good working class jobs is the flip side of the anger many feel at income of the richest 1% exploding—that group had a 275 percent “raise” in income between [1979 and 2007] according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). The problem is not that the wealthy are getting wealthier, but that they seem to do so at the expense of everyone else seeing wages drop and benefits like health care and pensions disappear.Which is what makes the story of $60,000 housekeepers such an anomaly in the news. When Local 6, which represents New York City hotel workers, was founded back in 1938, they were actually just a latecomer to a wave of union drives that raised wages and brought labor rights to the workplace for previously low-wage workers in the auto industry, steel, telephone, garment and range of other industries.

But many of those jobs have disappeared to either globalization or technology and, except for a smaller group of high-paying professional service jobs, the decline of union strength has meant many new service jobs pay less than needed to raise a family.

So why do we have $60,000 per year housekeepers in New York City?

Well, you can’t outsource cleaning a room to China and so far no robot can make a bed as well as a human being, so hotel workers have escaped the job destroying forces sweeping other industries.

But you don’t have $60,000 housekeepers in most places in the United States or anything approach it except in a handful of cities like San Francisco and Las Vegas, so the answer goes beyond technological determinism.

The answer is hard-fought organizing by the hotel workers themselves in New York City and the supportive pro-union sentiment of other residents in the city, what was once unapologetically called “solidarity” in this country before the term seemed to get reserved by the elite for only talking about supporting workers in Poland.

Newman goes on to make solid points about the importance of union density and about the labor movement’s role in fighting inequality in America.

At the outset of this post, I framed the right-wing stance on wages as something of a curious contradiction. But actually, this whole thing is not all that complicated. Stripped down, it’s just class warfare, waged by the rich. Unless we have institutions that can repel the assault and advance the interests of working people, our democratic society as a whole stands to suffer.

STRANGE CREW

(sung to the Cream song “Strange Brew”)

Strange crew
They’ve got there at Fox News

Does that Sean Hannity have a new hairdo?
And will Bill O’Reilly go back on “The View”
No clue
And what will Glenn Beck do?

Strange crew
They’ve got there at Fox News

There’s a long-faced sullen man that’s named Brit Hume
And a blonde-haired guy named Ann Coulter, too
Pee-you
That’s just to name a few

Strange crew
They’ve got there at Fox News

(Misinformation break)

They have a dumb Alaskan known as Sarah P.
And a weekend wimp named Mike Huckabee
Good Lord
Could they be more abhorred?

Strange crew
They’ve got there at Fox News

Strange crew, strange crew
Strange crew, strange crew

Strange crew
They’ve got there at Fox News

Hey, Did You Hear What (fill in name of conservative pundit here) Said This Week?

Sean Hanitty (Fox News): The elimination of Osama bin Laden “wouldn’t have happened if he (President Barack Obama) had his way”;

Ann Coulter: At CPAC she said, “Voters with forty years of politically correct education are ecstatic to have the first black president. They just love the idea even if we did get Flavor Flav instead of Thomas Sowell.”;

Liz Trotta (Fox News): While commenting on the recent Pentagon report which reveals that there has been a 64% increase in violent sexual assaults in the military, Trotta said, “Well, what did they expect? These people are in close contact…That’s funny, I thought the mission of the armed forces was to defend and protect us, not the people who were fighting the war.”;

Fox Business Network: Sometimes actions speak louder than words. Such is the case with the Fox Business Network who’s executives responded to poor ratings by firing its entire prime-time lineup and replacing them with re-runs of other programs;

Charles Gasparino (Fox News): Referred to the recently announced $26 billion foreclosure malfeasance settlement as a “deadbeat bailout”;

Laura Ingraham (Radio): “Don’t you love it when people come to CPAC and they don’t really have access to conservatives? And I’m not talking about Governor Romney by the way.”;

Bill O’Reilly (Fox News): “Can you make fun of a gay person in this country? Can you just make a joke about a gay person? … Can you mock a gay person and your organization, other organizations — would you be OK with that if it’s just done in a casual, allegedly humorous way?”;

Glenn Beck (Radio): “I want to talk a little bit about the parallels between the Obama administration and the FDR administration as it comes into play with communists. We have Marxists, Maoists, communists in and around the White House influencing and actually working with [it]. We had that with FDR. Both denied it at the time.”

Sarah Palin (Fox News): “That glowing enthusiasm isn’t there yet. I believe a lot of that is in part the idea that it’s a foregone conclusion that Mitt Romney will be the GOP pick. He certainly has the establishment support and much of the media support. I also believe that he is the one that President Obama would love to debate and to run against in November.”;

Rush Limbaugh (Radio): “…as I’ve been saying the past couple of weeks, if you’re looking for a conservative who is the least corrupted, who has the least number of periods of wandering off the reservation, if you’re looking for a conservative who’s never sat down with Nancy Pelosi on the couch for any reason, you get Rick Santorum.  And people know this.”

Andrew Brietbart (Publisher-Videographer): The conservative pundit who doctored the infamous ACORN tapes  and the Shirley Sherrod tapes and was caught, appeared at the OCCUPY CPAC protest and had a complete and total public meltdown, which ironically, was caught on tape and has not been edited.
How is that for a week’s worth of right-wing crazy!

These nuts are broadcast across the nation
To the dumb and poor
Who mimic them like apes

I feel like throwing up
When he spins
All that lame jive
Lives in a bubble where he is “the man”
Can’t be trusted
Cuz he lies
Like Glenn Beck and that’s a fact, man

Remember way back in two-thousand-seven
They said Romney and his cohorts
Would be leading us to heaven

Could have had his way
“Operation Chaos”
Would have had Hilary Clinton
On election day
Hey!
Election day!
Hey!
