Mitt: What Does He Know About Poverty?

The “HE” I am referring to is 2 time presidential loser, Mitt Romney.  It seems that Mitt wants to make it a 3 time loser….for most of us that means jail.

After his screw up in 2012 he has taken a new tack….it seems that he will try to focus on poverty and its elimination………that is his theme (for me…a bit humorous)….at least for now.

Mitt Romney spoke to the Republican National Committee last night and sounded very much like a candidate trying to erase an image of being rich and out of touch, reports AP. Consider these quotes:

  • “Under President Obama, the rich have gotten richer, income inequality has gotten worse and there are more people in poverty than ever before.”
  • “It’s a tragedy—a human tragedy—that the middle class in this country by and large doesn’t believe the future won’t be better than the past or their kids will have a brighter future of their own. People want to see rising wages and they deserve them.”
  • “First, we have to make the world safer. Second, we have to make sure and provide opportunity for all Americans regardless of the neighborhood they live in. And finally, we have to lift people out of poverty.”

The Washington Post sees the emphasis on poverty and the middle class as “a dramatic departure from the themes he sounded in losing the 2012 campaign to President Obama.” Time writes that he “sought to cast himself as a champion of the nation’s poor.” So is he, in fact, running? Romney would say only that he’s giving it “serious consideration.” The New York Times, meanwhile, reports that wife Ann, who was once adamantly opposed to another run, seems to have come around to the “maybe” camp. “She knows where my heart is,” Romney told the crowd last night.

What could this man know about poverty?  Does he have to choose between the power bill or food?  No his big decision is which car will come out of the elevator today.

I am sick of politicians that get this condescending attitude and pretend to know what is it  about to struggle daily….or to lessen his self to basically beg for assistance from an uncaring government.  Or to watch his kids go to bed hunger or try and do homework in the dark.

It is sickening to hear that he has a plan to eliminate poverty……coming from a man that has NEVER known poverty.  How can one formulate a solution without knowledge of the problem?

Anyone that believes this guy has a doable plan….IS AN IDIOT!

It’s Mitt (Again And Again)

The big news for political pundits is the chance that Mitt (a 2 time loser) may be ready to try for a third attempt at the presidency.

The news has been all over the place…….but the chance of covering Mitt is all consuming for them……

The most common reaction on both the left and right to the news that Mitt Romney is genuinely serious about another White House run seems to be … why? Some examples:

  • Jennifer Rubin, Washington Post: In a blog post headlined “His time has passed,” the onetime Romney backer writes that “he may have been the best of a crummy field in 2012, but in 2016 he’d be a very flawed candidate in a field of more exciting contenders.” Unless he can come up with specific answers to a series of questions (about the 47%, etc), she thinks his friends must explain to him that “we need to find someone who can win—and that person is not you. … Running for personal redemption is a rotten rationale for a presidential campaign.”
  • Jonathan Chait, New York: He swears he won’t believe Romney is running again, even during his oath of office. Among the reasons: Remember when Romney warned of unemployment doomsday under President Obama? No doomsday. “Romney’s sole advantage, his self-styled persona as a business guru who can get under the hood and fix the American economy, would seem to have little remaining credibility.”
  • Jazz Shaw, Hot Air: “I still have all the respect in the world for Mitt, but his time has come and gone. He can still play an important role in the national discussion and will certainly be able to help steer some significant fundraising operations, but I think he should keep his hat out of the ring this time.”
  • Jamelle Bouie, Slate: He is among the few who think Romney could make a strong candidate. Bouie argues that Romney wasn’t a “bad” candidate in 2012, but he was up against an incumbent and an improving economy, and that kind of political math rarely works. “There won’t be an incumbent in 2016, and there’s a good chance Americans will want a different party at the helm,” writes Bouie. “If Romney were the nominee, there’s no doubt that he could win the presidency.”

My personal opinion of the possibility of another Mitt run for the roses……YAWN!

The man is as boring as watching flies f*ck!

“Told Ya So!”

Before I begin……we hear from our brethren on the Right that Obama’s is an imperial presidency, in other words he is a dictator…..and since the Ukraine thing we are hearing from those same people that Obama is a wimp, a Momma’s boy with NO guts…….Okay you guys make up our minds for us please.  I guess consistency means nothing, right?  Yet when the prez is inconsistent he is a bad prez…..if you want me to take anything you say seriously….then maybe you should start with one simple rule…..CONSISTENCY!

Since Russia has sent troops and ships to Ukraine we have a wealth of post incident back slapping…especially from the Right….they are pointing to Obama and his weak foreign policy (something I will stipulate) from past losers in elections as they were somehow privy to world affairs…….to this I say NOT A CHANCE!

Before I continue……to my GOP friends….want you remember this?

Sarah Palin is happily sticking it back to critics who mocked her comments about Russia back in the 2008 campaign, reports CNN. The reason is this quote from a speech of hers in Reno:

  • “After the Russian army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama’s reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence—the kind of response that would only encourage Russia’s Putin to invade Ukraine next.”

Given what’s happening on the ground, Palin took to Facebook to gloat a little. “Yes, I could see this one from Alaska,” she writes, recalling the Tina Fey “I can see Russia from my house!” spoof. Her post continues: “I’m usually not one to Told-Ya-So, but I did.” As Breitbart.com notes, Foreign Policy magazine called Palin’s comments “strange” at the time and dismissed the idea as “an extremely far-fetched scenario.”

Come on….there are couple of the ‘new’ foreign policy’ experts that until last week probably could not find Ukraine on a map without the help of their Google finger.

Look I predicted Chavez would die in office a year before he actually croaked and I am NOT an expert or a flipping foreign policy genius….but a couple of past voices did just what I did…..lucky guesses….you put out enough crap and something will come true…..you can say whatever you like about Obama’s foreign policy….but please do not make these self-promoting twats out as some sort of all seeing seer……….

That is my only statement on anything dealing with these ego-centric toads……we can talk about the lack of guts in foreign policy and anything else but for God’s sake leave these people out of it.

Thank you!

PS:  Just a small reminder!

I believe this is when he, Bush, looked into his, Putin, soul and saw an honorable man…..or something equally as moronic….just a thought………chuq

Humor Is Where You Find It

And friends, this is beyond humorous!

Ever read something that makes you chuckle….and then there are stories that make you laugh out loud…..

The polls show that Obama is sliding in the approval polls…….you know that worthless momentary snapshot we get everyday from the media?  Then the pundits build the story of the day around the polls….that is what they do….make up as much crap as they possibly can and use polls to justify their analysis…..this one just makes me smile with disgust…..

(Newser) – Just how bad are things for President Obama a year into his second term? So bad that if the American people got a mulligan on the 2012 election, there’s a good shot we’d be looking at a President Romney. A Washington Post-ABC News poll reveals that if the election were held today, Obama would lose the popular vote 45% to 49%. While the Post reminds us that the Electoral College, not the popular vote, is the ultimate decider, it notes that spread roughly mirrors the 4 points Obama actually won by, and reflects plummeting support from his key demographics:

  • Obama won women by 11 points; now, his edge is down to one point.
  • He won voters aged 18-39 by 18 points; that’s down to two.
  • He won voters earning less than $50,000 by 22 points; it’s down to three.
  • He’s now nine points in the hole with voters without a college degree, after winning them by four points.
  • While he’d still win 59% of liberals, that’s down from 75%—and 20% now say they’d vote for Romney.

Obama’s approval rating has fallen 13 points this year to 42%, tying its lowest mark ever in the poll. The culprit, as you might suspect, is at least in part the Affordable Care Act rollout, which 63% think has been handled poorly. The public now opposes the law itself 57%-40%, its worst numbers yet, and 71% favor delaying the individual mandate.

Mitt could not beat Obama in November of 2012…..and regardless what the mental midgets say….he could NOT beat him today…….hindsight is 20/20……wishful thinking knows NO bounds!

Anyone who uses the daily snapshots they call polls as a fact of reality is NOT playing with a full deck……not the sharpest tack in the box….not…..well you get the point.

Would You Take Advice From This Man?

If you need a good chuckle to start your week….then this is the post for you.

Okay before I go any further….would you take football advice from a coach with a 0-10 record?  Then why would anyone, including Repubs listen to anything that Mitt would have to say?  A proven loser!

But with that said he just had to stick his $10,000 worth in the Obamacare debacle…..

Newser) – Mitt Romney knows a little something about health care reform, and he threw his two cents on the pile today, saying President Obama “failed to learn the lessons” of Massachusetts. Romney took issue with Obama’s “one-size-fits-all” approach, notes Politico, adding that reform should have been left to the states. But Obama’s biggest failing, contends Romney, came when “he told the American people that you could keep your health insurance if you wanted to keep that plan, period,” which was “a fundamental dishonesty.” “The fact that the president sold it on a basis that was not true has undermined the foundation of his second term. I think it’s rotting it away. We’ve got to have a president that can lead, and right now he’s not able to do so.” Elsewhere on your Sunday dial:

  • Romney on Chris Christie: “Chris could easily become our nominee and save our party and help get this nation on the right track again. They don’t come better than Chris Christie. He’s a very popular governor in a very blue state. That’s the kind of popularity and the kind of track record the Republican Party needs if we’re going to take back the White House.”
  • Newt Gingrich on why Romney didn’t pick Christie for veep: “Romney would have shrunk, and Christie would have blossomed.”
  • Gingrich on why Obama didn’t put Hillary Clinton on his 2012 ticket: “If you had said to him, ‘You have to be re-elected but Bill Clinton is going to be next to you for four years,’ he would have said, ‘It ain’t worth it. I don’t need this level of pain.'”
  • Dianne Feinstein on LAX shooting: “The weapon was a .223 MP-15, where the MP stands for military and police, clearly designed not for general consumption. Same gun that was used at Aurora. Would I do a bill? Sure, I would do a bill. I mean, I believe this down deep in my soul.”
  • Mike Rogers on why HealthCare.gov should be shut down temporarily: “They’re trying to change a tire on a car going 75 miles an hour down the expressway. That’s not the way cybersecurity works.”

I threw in a little lagniappe of the Sunday talking heads…..most it was disgusting…but in case you were living your life and not paying attention to the douche bags with the biggest mouths…..

Meanwhile back to Mitt….”Mitt knows a little something about health care……” personal opinion….very little…..beyond that…who cares what he thinks any more….he lost…..now go away!
