It seems that the Rich need the help of us folks in the Middle Class..

Romney has given us a plan!

Maybe I’ll be in that group of 125 families that helps support Mitt’s own tax break. What a contribution that would be!

Republican Romney Quote for the Day…

When Romney staffer Andrea Saul told us all that the candidate’s chief accomplishment as governor of Massachusetts was Romneycare, it brought a comment from Ann Coulter on Hannity’s show:

“There is no point to us going to a convention and pushing for this man if he is employing morons like this.”

However, who is the moron here? The staff member or the Candidate? Romney’s a jittery asshole who’s incapable of human emotion and comprehension. It’s ROMNEY they should be worried about, not his campaign staffers.

Hannity’s reply to Coulter, btw:

“I AGREE WITH YOU.”

Ah, Republican harmony!

And some afternoon humor if Coulter isn’t enough…

Political humor gets too close to reality…

 

MoveOn.org has put out a new anti-Romney commercial called “Pickpocket” that went out today in swing states.

Funny, yes… but as close to the real potential circumstance as you can get.

 

Romney stuck with Ryan?

Looks like Romney may be stuck with Paul Ryan as VP nominee… not something he originally considered.

Here’s a clip from New York Magazine‘s piece on the subject:

Conservative anxiety has stalked Mitt Romney since the outset of his presidential campaign, expressing itself in a series of hopes that a nominee who was not Romney might win, and then, after his nomination became inevitable, as endless caterwauling for Romney himself to act less … Romney-like. Romney’s vice-presidential selection has begun to serve as a stand-in for these demands, and as recently as a week ago, they split between calls for him to pick Paul Ryan and calls for Marco Rubio.

But since then, Romney’s position has steadily eroded, intensifying the conservative panic. And a report by National Review’s Robert Costa that Romney was giving Ryan strong consideration focused all the attention on the dreamy House Budget Committee chairman and unofficial party leader. Suddenly Ryan’s potential nomination has become the sole locus of the conservative movement’s longings.

At this point, joining Ryan to the ticket would be a huge gamble. Romney would be tapping into Ryan’s immense political talent, but giving up on his win-by-default strategy that has taken a beating but might look good again if, say, some international disaster craters the recovery between now and November. In any case, the conservative drumbeat for Ryan has grown so overwhelming that it’s no longer even clear that Romney could turn Ryan down for an Incredibly Boring White Guy, even if he wants to. The Republican Party belongs to Ryan.

Has there ever been a Presidential nominee that was so unloved by his party?
