Thanks and a tip of the hat to the press in the United Kingdom for telling the truth about Romney.

The powerful US media is doing a piss-poor job, since they are married to advertising money.

Fellow Americans, isn't it obvious that this guy Romney is a privileged turd who has no idea what the 99% endure?

1. imagine if we had a real news media , no need for phony fair and balanced

in the US the whore media would feel the need to report some stupid shit like what Michelle Obama will wear to the olympics, or where she might go to eat or shopping to "balance" out anything negative they might report on Romney.

2. That's why this is so great.

As long as Mittney is there, he's under scrutiny 24/7 by actual media coverage. And he looks bad.

8. Remember Bush was overseas when the whole yellowcake exploded in his face.

we should make our leaders spend more time out of the country. Congress next. Make 'em hold press conferences in foreign lands and answer real questions, not the pablum they get here.

3. Ahem

It is obvious to me that Mitt the Shit is a waste of over-privileged skin, but he seems to be fooling a good many people. I don't understand it; as with Bush, his eyes are too close together, but I know folks who think he's the right choice. What is glaring to me does not seem to disturb most of my friends. Perhaps I'm a little rabid in my desire to see Mitt lose.

5. One would have thought that the American media would have learned a thing or two...

...after ol' George Dubya*, but I guess not.

4. They've done a great job responding with a natural humanity to a phoney

If we only had a bit more of that here, people like Romney wouldn't get away with their BS, not at all

10. "responding with a natural humanity to a phony" -- that's an excellent way to put it. That is

exactly what's missing in the States -- the expression of natural humanity, the saying out loud of what is patently obvious. This is a dangerous road we are going down, folks.

9. I don't know if anyone remembers this...

but this is what a philosopher whom we quite like here in the Old Countries had to say about a "foreign system of checks" on the US political system (on Democracy Now!):



(and hello to everyone, quite a lovely forum you have here)
