MO GOP Senate Candidate Akin Claimed Abortionists “giving abortions to women who are not actually pregnant”

Posted on October 3, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

Oh, those tricky evil abortionists- won’t someone think about the NOT YET CONCEIVED CHILDREN?? Check it out, from January 2008:

‘It is no big surprise that we fight the terrorists because they are fundamentally un-American, and yet we have terrorists in our own culture called abortionists.

‘One of the good pieces of news why we are winning this war is because there are not enough heartless doctors being graduated from medical schools. There is a real shortage of abortionists. Who wants to be at the very bottom of the food chain of medical profession?

‘And what sort of places do these bottom-of-the-food-chain doctors work in? Places that are really a pit.

‘You find that along with the culture of death go all kinds of other law-breaking – not following good sanitary procedure, giving abortions to women who are not actually pregnant, cheating on taxes, all these kinds of things, misuse of anesthetics so that people die or almost die.’

It will be interesting to see how or if this is addressed by the GOP and Mitt Romney, who all backed far away from Akin this summer after his controversial rape/ abortion statements, before coming back to supporting him.

A reminder: The first presidential debate is tonight.

Why Republicans Should “Go The Full Akin”

Posted on August 22, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , , , , |

While Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, Reince Priebus, Mitch McConnell, Rush Limbaugh, fellow Missouri GOP members and even Sarah Palin are advising America to, “Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!”, it appears that they are all sadly missing a golden opportunity to get behind the one Republican on the national scene who indeed personifies and defines with sharp clarity their entire 2012 slate of presidential nominees, as well as the GOP’s long standing views of abortion.

Rather than shun Todd, they should embrace him- and “go for the Full Akin”.

Consider the evidence. On the surface, Todd Akin appears to be an angry older white man. Why, that right there represents the majority of the GOP base!

Oh, our apologies- that was Rep. Akin’s happy face.

Here is his angry look. There- much better!

Anywho… Todd is ANGRY. And doesn’t back down. Stands firm for what he believes and doesn’t “run for cover when the first gunshot is heard”.

Wait a sec; that doesn’t appear to be the case after all. Hmm. And goodness knows, the GOP right before their convo in Tampa do NOT need more “flip-flop” reminders, as they all collectively choke down their lunch and officially nominate Mitt Romney as their presidential candidate.

Well, that’s why Mitt has a Veep- someone who can do the dirty work and stand with Todd Akin- goodness knows, it’s not like they haven’t stood together before in Congress!

Romney/Ryan Play “Battleship”- and Promptly Scuttle Themselves

Posted on August 11, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , |

No military experience for either Paul Ryan or Mitt Romney, no comments by either on defense or foreign policy- yet they are comfortable using the retired USS Wisconsin naval battleship as a prop.

As Rachel Maddow pointed out, can you imagine the outrage if 2 Dems with no military experience did this?

Then there was the actual announcement- definitely one for the “You Can’t Make This Sh*t Up” files.

Romney owes me and so many others this morning a new keyboard for THAT gaffe!

Mitt Romney’s “Hail Mary” Moment- Desperate Campaign Picks WI Rep. Paul Ryan as Running Mate

Posted on August 11, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , |

(BONUS: I am not the only one reading the play call as a Hail Mary.)

The past few weeks have been nothing short of an “un-Mitt-igated” disaster for Team Romney. To quickly review this past month, we have:

1. Mitt Romney addressing the NAACP amid allegations that he stacked the deck with supportive audience plants, same as he did during the primary.

2. The Olympics. YeGods, The Olympics. Did I mention the Olympics? How about the rest of Mitt’s European vacation? Oh, was he glad to get back to the States

3. The TaxMan Cometh– but he does not reveal what he knows, let alone or what he owes. When even some of these allies including members of the Mormon Church gang up and demand one coughs up the previous tax forms, you KNOW it’s been bad for Mitt. President Obama’s coining the phrase “Romneyhood” to describe Mitt’s tax plan was brilliantly done; Romney’s slap back of “Obamaloney” was a swing and a miss.

“[The independent Tax Policy Center] determined that Governor Romney’s plan would effectively raise taxes on middle-class families with children by an average of $2,000 — to pay for this tax cut. Not to reduce the deficit. Not to invest in things that grow our economy, like education or roads or basic research. He’d ask the middle class to pay more in taxes so that he could give another $250,000 tax cut to people making more than $3 million a year. (Boo.)
It’s like Robin Hood in reverse. It’s Romney Hood.

4. The Bain of Mitt’s Existence. Mitt’s Bain in the Neck. Last night, “Son of Boss”.

This did NOT help.

And then add that the Ron Paul delegates in Maine and other states are not “going quietly into that good night” and going to create a real nightmare scenario for the GOP Convention in Tampa later this month- let’s just face facts; it’s gotten pretty scary for Team Mitt.

And the latest poll numbers haven’t helped, either. Nor has the missteps by spokeswoman Andrea Saul, who got raked over the coals by conservative pundits, creating arguably “the moment Mitt Romney lost the election”.

And this BEFORE a Veep was announced, despite much speculation. In desperation, Mitt went to NH and did some shopping. Went to the Heartland and hobnobbed with a farmer.

He even begged Obama to stop attacking him on issues.

Nothing helped.

So, what else could Mitt do? Speculation narrowed the list to 5 possible horses, er, candidates for a running mate. Desperate times call for desperate measures and late last night, it was learned that Team Romney was going with the “bold” selection- 7 time Representative Paul Ryan of Janesville, Wisconsin.

A place Romney has recently visited- but failed to mention, in his stop, the closed GM plant in town.

Wonder why?

Anyways, the announcement of the Romney/Ryan ticket takes place at 9am this morning in Norfolk, VA alongside the retired USS Wisconsin (see what they did there? Clever…)– but the reality is that this will be the closest to any sort of military action by either of them. In fact, the last “Romney” in the Navy was this poor example.

Oh, I canNOT wait for Joe Biden as Team Obama to debate Paul Ryan…
