Mitt Romney supports Meg Whitman in the California gubernatorial race against Jerry Brown. Unfortunately for him it comes at a really bad time when he is trying to convince voters that he is a “job creator” – something he has never really been.
From Stephen D. Foster, Jr. at AddictingInfo.org:
In an interview with the National Review published on Thursday, Mitt Romney said he wished Whitman were the Governor of California instead of Jerry Brown, whom Romney insisted was doing things wrong. Romney praised Whitman as an economic guru, telling the Review, “I wish Californians had elected Meg Whitman. She would have been more successful and explained to Californians the need to cut back on spending and eliminate unnecessary programs.”
Romney’s praise for Whitman couldn’t have come at more inopportune time, as The New York Times reported on the same day that Whitman intends to eliminate 30,000 American jobs mostly through layoffs and forcing workers into early retirement. Even though Hewlett-Packard made a staggering $7.1 billion profit in 2011, Whitman is cutting these jobs in America while leaving Hewlett-Packard jobs intact in China and elsewhere.
If spending is eliminated on average workers who helped H.P. make a whopping profit this past year, then it is hard to imagine that the issue on economic cuts is a primarily false one.
Romney is praising Whitman as an economic miracle worker at the same time she is destroying jobs at her company… but not cutting the export of these American jobs to China.Why is he not criticizing Whitman rather than supporting her?

Former navy Chaplain Gordon Klingenschmitt, founder of the lobbying group Pray In Jesus Name Project, appeared on a progressive talk show (The David Pakman Show) this week to criticize President Barack Obama’s endorsement of same sex marriage. He ended up promoting his theory that gay people unknowingly secrete invisible, evil creatures which find and possess certain animals, turning them gay as well:
“It is entirely possible — we know from the Bible, for example, when Jesus cast the devil out of Legion, he went into a herd of pigs. So, it is possible for demons or the devil to inhabit or invade animals just the same way they invade humans, and that causes the sin of lust.”
So, if you’ve been wondering what causes gay pigs, here is the answer from a guy who thinks the LGBT community has an agenda” to “repopulate their population by recruiting the children of heterosexuals.” And animals, too.
Klingenschmitt thinks everyone is borne heterosexual, but is converted to homosexuality mostly by gay television programming. So I think we can solve the pigs problem by just turning off the TVs in the sty.
What? They don’t have television in the sty?
Robin Gibb helped define the disco subculture of the 1970s. His signature song was “I Started a Joke.” The Bee Gees first emerged as a pop-rock act in the late ’60s, but reinvented themselves in the mid-’70s when Robin, Maurice and Barry Gibb came to public attention with the “Saturday Night Fever” soundtrack.
