Money shot

It shows the former Massachusetts governor beside his former business partners with cash pouring out of their pockets, lapels, shirt collars and even a few body orifices. Even unapologetic champions of the free market cringe with anticipation of the bonanza that photo provides for Team Obama, which already loves to blame the weak economy on “fat-cat” bankers.

Can someone please explain why we should believe he’s suddenly so darn electable now?

    The Washington establishment, ever a font of wisdom, has chosen its candidate. Mitt Romney’s victory in the Republican primaries, the insiders say, is a fait accompli. They claim he’s the most electable, the safe bet. Fine; let’s play along for the moment and consider what the Democrats have in store for him in the general election.

    Recall that before Barack Obama trounced John McCain in 2008, Mr. McCain trounced Mr. Romney. But that’s not the worst of it. Mr. Romney’s Massachusetts electoral record hardly inspires confidence. He was elected initially in 2002 but couldn’t crack 50 percent of the popular vote. By the end of his first and only term, he had an anemic 34 percent approval rating and a 65 percent disapproval rating. Survey USA ranked Mr. Romney’s popularity 48th out of the 50 governors. With that, the supposedly electable Mitt Romney walked away rather than face the voters.

    Politics and news are dirty. Herman Cain is not the first political candidate slandered and libeled by the drive-by media, and he will certainly not be the last. Why “drive-by”? Because they report and spin unverified information, without any regard to the people they defame, or worse, with the explicit aim of defaming them. Yes, defamation. Somehow, news outlets have managed to insulate themselves from the liability of defamation, by reporting other peoples’ slander about public figures: slander by proxy, or by spinning facts to make things seem

      In contrast, did you know that Barack Obama was accused of some shocking behavior? Larry Sinclair, a man, told a story about how in 1999, he shared a limo with Obama, they did some lines of cocaine together, and then Larry orally gratified Obama. Larry outed Obama on YouTube, because no news outlet showed interest in his story. Instead of spending every waking moment hounding Obama about this accuser, the news media did everything they could to forget that Larry Sinclair ever existed. The ones who could not forget about Sinclair, did everything they could to discredit him. Pretty much the same thing that was done to all of the accusers of Bill Clinton.

        The second lesson makes a general rule: when you see smoke published about a Democrat, there is probably a roaring, multi-alarm fire. In fact, the town has probably already burned down. When you see smoke about a Republican, it is probably smoke, and there may or may not be a fire. When you see fire about a Republican, it is probably a show, so dig deep, find the unedited video or original quote, and think for yourself.

      People who have known both Herman Cain and his wife knew they rarely were together the last years – and frankly they both preferred it that way and so did his children. And everyone knew he had girlfriends. His wife wouldnt stand by him
      thats why he quit. Yes go to Plan B Herman, sell more books get big fat speaking fees like your friend Sara Palin. Money oozes from all their pockets thats what they live for. Rick Santorum’s daughter Bella measures her life in days and weeks -not years she is terminally ill -she is 3 1/2 years old. He is polling at 5 percent and has NO chance to win but his enormous ego wont let him quit. You cant make this stuff up. This old old story about Obama and cocaine is so typical – no proof
      except rumous – at least with Herman Cain they produced the women. The best family man running is the President. You remember the community activist before he was in Congress – just like that carpenter a long time ago he was a community activist too.

    And this is why I believe both camps, Dems and Repubs, are the same with the same socialist agenda, only with different means to get there. Allen West being the exception. :mrgreen: I wonder if he was a frontrunner candidate if he would be the electable one or would it still be Romney? I just want to know what its like to live in America where patriotism and worship of God is the rule in just about every citizen’s heart.

    I truly believe that regardless of who was running against Mittens he would be considered the frontrunner. It’s his turn, you see.

    What about the atheists? and the Buddhists and the rest of the citizens of this country? What if they dont believe in God are they not allowed to be patriotic or even citizens. As far as socialism is concerned its just a WORD – when you take social security, or medicare, or help from FEMA or any other government agency including help for your kids with college, its a form of socialism – so what? Why do people in the 99 percent vote for Republicans who are only for the one percent?
    They prove it over and over and over again. They will sit on a jobs bill because they dont want see Obama get in again? Tell that to so many children going to bed hungry at night because theirs parents cant find jobs. The middle class in this country started its downhill with Reagan and only until Bill Clinton came in and got it right did we have some progress and a surplus! Think of it a surplus no deficit
    and then they elected that imbecile Bush who started the Iraq war – going after people who didnt have anything to do with 911. And his cronies made short work of that surplus. You give a president 2 years to do something about one of the greatest crisis’s in the world? But you know what – its turning around – housing is up construction is up, we got Bin Laden and Al Awalaki, and we are getting out of that Iraq and soon Afghanistan and employment is rising small but still rising. What the heck is wrong with that? You think any of those Bozo’s running on the GOP side will do better? They will do what they have always done – to the destruction of the middle class – getting rid of unions – your firefighters police and teachers.
    Tell me who would do those jobs when they could get paid twice their salaries working in the private sector? They do it for the pensions and benefits – thats one big reason. Did you know that Newt Gingrich once said poor and low income women should put their children in orphanages? His latest is make poor income kids work as janitors – yes, they will surely have time for homework or to improve themselves then. He isnt crazy – he is driven by greed as he has always been –
    and he doesnt care if he wins or not, he will just make more and more money to keep that wooden-faced 3rd wife of his in jewels.

    A former Sergeant, having served his time with the Marine Corps, took a new job as a school teacher, but just before the school year started he injured his back. He was required to wear a plaster cast around the upper part of his body. Fortunately, the cast fit under his shirt and wasn’t noticeable. On the first day of class, he found himself assigned to the toughest students in the school. The smart aleck punks, having already heard the new teacher was a former Marine, were leery of him and decided to see how tough he really was, before trying any pranks. Walking confidently into the rowdy classroom, the new teacher opened the window wide and sat down at his desk. When a strong breeze made his tie flap, he picked up a stapler and promptly stapled the tie to his chest. …..Dead silence….. He had no trouble with discipline that year..

    SEMPER FI!!!
