Handkerchief? Time waster? when we have video like this-Ryan:"Let's Make This Country a Tax Shelter"

Last edited Fri Oct 5, 2012, 01:57 PM - Edit history (2)

The handkerchief thing has pretty much been challenged by the Romney campaign, and they have a pretty good excuse: http://www.democraticunderground.com/1014256852

However, they cannot excuse their way out of saying shit like this and get away with it (read the whole article, it has much more detail):

In 2010, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), now Mitt Romney's running mate, called the Cayman Islands "the place you hide your money," arguing that the United States needs to slash tax rates below those of other countries in order to make this country "a haven for capital formation." But in previously unreported comments, from an interview with American Business Magazine in August 2011, Ryan went even further on the same topic, saying, "let's make this country a tax shelter for other countries instead of having other countries be a tax shelter for America."

1. I cannot believe I am saying this: But, Romney/Ryan are more dangerous than Bush/Darth Cheney...

2. No not a "time waster"

when everyone already knows that Lyin' Ryan is already true to his name as a crazed Randian.

Folks can walk and chew gum while on the phone all at the same time.

6. yes, but we have all these smart people chasing something weak, when we only has 30 days left!!!

our side is sooooooo good at digging through information and finding some great nuggets.... I think the hanky is wanky and we need to spend our limited time to give Romney and Ryan a spanky (sorry about that )

4. Please, we can multi-task. He cheated. He lies. He's unfit. He's an embarrassment.

So we just, what, laugh with the rest of the world? Tut. Tut.

I had to watch BS about the "angry black man" syndrome ad nauseum because our President was rightfully ashamed of the hyper cretin the Right brought to the proverbial table/lectern.

So, no, the Cheating White Man needs to go to the woodshed...along with the other Liar, as above. And God Bless Mother Jones now, and decades ago. She didn't back away from the BS slung at her, justify it, diminish it to please others.

With all due respect, we can do both.

7. Not a time waster when it goes to character.

Once a cheat, always a cheat and I don't want another cheat running my country.

There are people who will recognize the cheating as a character flaw while they do not understand all this talk about tax shelters and tax cuts.

Nothing is a time waster.

8. but if it is proven wrong... who's character does that hurt? that's why I question our efforts...

Remember Acorn? Remember the Whitey video? All of that made the GOP look desperate... that is my concern here... especially with something this hard to prove...

Romney cheated in 08, and there is much better proof, there is actually audio... and that didn't even stick?

9. That's their dream. A wonderful country full of mansions and limos,

enjoyed by the super wealthy from around the world. They will pay no taxes and watch the peons work their entire lives.
