The Real Agenda Of Mitt Romney and Republicans

Posted by on Friday, September 28, 2012,

Rolling Stone
lays it out:

It was tempting to dismiss Mitt Romney's hard-right turn during the GOP primaries as calculated pandering. In the general election – as one of his top advisers famously suggested – Romney would simply shake the old Etch A Sketch and recast himself as the centrist who governed Massachusetts. But with the selection of vice-presidential nominee Paul Ryan, the shape-shifting Romney has locked into focus – cementing himself as the frontman for the far-right partisan...

Mitt Romney's Blind Eyes

Posted by on Thursday, September 20, 2012,

Is Mitt simply so blinded by his own well-born existence and personal ambition that he cannot or chooses not to see or know 47 percent of America?

As I’m sure you know by now, Romney said (during a private fund-raiser which was secretly taped) that the 47 percent of Americans who pay no federal income taxes are people who are "dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled...

Republican VP Nominee Paul Ryan Argues FOR Stimulus Spending

Posted by on Sunday, August 19, 2012,
Long before he became one of the right’s most vocal critics of the idea that government spending could help boost the flagging economy, Mitt Romney's choice for his Republican Presidential running mate, Representative Paul Ryan offered a forceful, full-throated defense of stimulus spending — when then-President George W. Bush wanted it in 2002.

Ryan has denounced the 2009 Recovery Act signed by President Obama as “a wasteful spending spree” and “failed neo-Keynesian experiment,” an...

A Brilliant & Humorous Musical Parody

LYRICS

One Term More!

A time to celebrate democracy,
Repeal Republican hypocrisy.
This man who would unseat Barack's
A bleak choice at the ballot box.
One Term More!
A G.O.P. perdition-bound,
All sense of right & wrong eroded.
One Term More!
With laws that let 'em stand their ground,
Republicans are locked & loaded.

Contraception's now a sin,
Screwing G.M. in the clutch.
Incivility's a virtue,
Homophobic. Out of touch.
Filibusters. Budget scrums.
Ultrasounds & speculums.

Mitt Romney: Poster Boy for Obama

Posted by on Wednesday, July 18, 2012,

One of the major narratives that Barack Obama has been running on ever since he began his political career, is changing the tax code. "Right now, we have a tax code that gives incentives for companies to move offshore. Instead, we must have a tax code that rewards companies that are doing the right thing", proclaimed Obama in June 2004.

Running for president in May 2008, he told CNN's Wolf Blitzer, "We have seen a lack of shared prosperity. So, you've got CEOs making more in a day than ordina...

Offshore Accounts like Romney's Cause Huge Imbalance in the Market

Posted by on Thursday, July 12, 2012,

One might say that offshore accounts, such as those held by Mitt Romney, are the antithesis of capitalism and downright unAmerican. Shouldn't a presidential candidate, who claims to hold the answers to our economic woes, set the bar a little higher and lead by example?

Excerpt:
More than half the world’s money passes almost undetected through a series of financial black holes that shelter it from not only the tax collector but from shareholders, partners and wives, a Tribune-Review investigat...

Party of the Rich
The nation is still recovering from a crushing recession that sent unemployment hovering above nine percent for two straight years. The president, mindful of soaring deficits, is pushing bold action to shore up the nation's balance sheet. Cloaking himself in the language of class warfare, he calls on a hostile Congress to end wasteful tax breaks for the rich.

"We're going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share," h...

Not only does Mitt Romney have no problem hiding his tax returns from voters, but he also has reasons to hide his tax returns from voters.

A blind trust is not a blind trust when there is direct or indirect control over investment decisions. While Romney has nominally placed his investments in a trust which is managed by someone else, the person he has chosen to manage those investments is his close associate and personal atto...

On Monday, April 16th, Senate Republicans voted against the wishes of the American people when they blocked legislation to make millionaires pay at least the same tax rate as middle-class families. According to the most recent survey taken just prior to the vote by CNN/ORC International, 72% of all Americans supported the Buffett Rule -- including 9 out of 10 Democrats, 7 out of 10 Independents and 53% of Republicans.

ROMNEY'S TAX AVOIDANCE plus BAIN CAPITAL INVESTIGATED by FBI

An investigative report by ABC reveals that Republican Presidential Primary candidate Mitt Romney, who I have dubbed #TheTwoHundredMillionDollarMan on twitter, has avoided paying his fair share of taxes by hiding his money in off-shore accounts in the Cayman Islands and elsewhere. Is it any wonder that he continues to refuse to release his income tax records as is the tradition of those running for the Executive Office of this nation? Watch:
