The politics I love and hate, wrapped up in a conundrum.

Let’s just pause to remember what Mittens was too good to show us

  • the traditional 10 years of tax returns
  • an interview in the past three weeks
  • how his IRA grew to $100 million
  • his Massachusetts gubernatorial communications (he had all computer hard drives destroyed upon leaving office)
His asking you to trust him while he aggressively hides or lies about his past is an insult to the citizens of the United States of America. 

Have you seen the latest Mitt Romney ad exploiting the suffering of our people? We’re tired of the same old, same old. President Obama doesn’t want to mislead us with demagoguery. He’s looking for the same thing we want.

Through all the flip-flops, there has been one consistency in the campaign of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney: a contempt for the electorate.

Yup, that’s why voting IS the best revenge — so that this kind of campaign can never be considered a success.

Romney now says he believes in FEMA when the life of the mother is in danger.

Brutal. 

I feel obliged to unambiguously restate our position: Jeep production will not be moved from the United States to China. Jeep is one of our truly global brands with uniquely American roots. This will never change. So much so that we committed that the iconic Wrangler nameplate, currently produced in our Toledo, Ohio plant, will never see full production outside the United States.

This is a totally honest question to any Romney voter, I’d love answers

What does it say about your desire to win at all costs and our country as a whole that your vote condones the systemic dishonesty of the Romney campaign’s very first ad (showing video of Obama saying something McCain said about the economy without the part about McCain saying it), all the way to its closing Chrysler/Jeep/China ad that is so wrong that Chrysler had to make a statement to its employees who thought they were going to lose their jobs in Ohio?

Just don’t tell me it’s because Obama is a lazy socialist food stamp President. I want to know how you stomach YOUR chosen candidate, not how you demonize and hate mine.

This lie is getting Romney shredded in Ohio and with the national media.

If this would just be the final nail in Romney’s Ohio coffin and hence the election, it will be the most deserving case of Schadenfreude evah.

They changed the name of the ‘victory rally’ to ‘storm relief event,’ but yet the event has the same guests, same location, and the signs still say “VICTORY RALLY.” People really can’t be stupid enough to fall for this, right?

We tried everything we could to find private money. I personally would have dramatically preferred private money. It just wasn’t available because of the crisis we were in. And the greatest thing about this point is that it is the easiest thing in the world to prove or disprove. All you need is one person to come forward and say, ‘Oh, I would have provided private capital, and here’s an example of where I said that in 2009.’ And no one has said that in three years, cause it’s just not true.

—Prominent N.Y. state Republican Harry Wilson, a Romney backer who says Romney is full of shit on his auto bailout history rewrite. One last time for the slow: THERE WAS NO PRIVATE CAPITAL AVAILABLE THAT THE GOVERNMENT COULD HAVE GUARANTEED IF IT WANTED TO, SO IT HAD TO “WRITE A CHECK,” which Mr Romney warned would be the end of General Motors.

If Mitt Romney agreed with the president in 2008, there would have been no reason for him to publish a policy op-ed in The New York Times with a provocative title. And certainly, the editorial board of The New York Times would not have published Romney’s essay if all he had done was agree with the current administration. What would be the sense in that? None. Romney’s piece went to print for only one reason: because it was a shot across the bow of the new Obama administration by the GOP candidate deemed at the time to be the most promising challenger for 2012.

—Jeffrey Feldman, pushing back against the latest Romney lies that he advocated for GM and Ford exactly what the Obama admistration did. If you’re wrong about everything, I guess you’re only left with rewriting history and hoping people are too stupid and uninformed to know.
