Grover Norquist: Obama Won By Convincing Voters Romney Was a "Poopy Head." Seriously.

http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2012/11/12/grover_norquist_calls_mitt_romney_a_poppy_head.html
<snip>

Anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist this morning delivered what just may be the most bizarre quote of this still young election post-mortem season, suggesting that President Obama managed to win re-election by successfully portraying Mitt Romey as a "poopy head."

The Huffington Post flags the no doubt soon-to-be hashtag-generating quote:

"The president was committed; elected on the basis that he was not Romney and Romney was a poopy head and you should vote against Romney and he won by two points," Norquist said on CBS' "This Morning" Monday. "But he didn't make the case that we should have higher taxes and higher spending, he kind of sounded like the opposite."

The Americans for Tax Reform chief's comments came during a string of appearances today on morning news programs, where he attempted to push back against the idea that the American voters handed the president a mandate last week and where he went on the offensive against a possible fiscal cliff deal that would include tax hikes.

Bye bye Grover

1. Wrong again, Grover. Romney convinced us that he was a poopy head. BHO won on policy.

3. Unbelievable to think this cabal has been leading the American public

in some degree since Reagan.

And incredibly inspiring that Americans rose up and overthrew them, in a big way!

I have been waiting for this all my life. I find nothing more inspiring than lines of determined voters - dammit it all waiting for 6+ hours - to make justice ring.

In our lifetime, folks, IN OUR LIFETIMES!

But that would have given some ol' hippy votes to Romney.

6. Since this Lame Excuse POO is being flung by the notorious Deep Doo-Doo Diaper Sex Party (R)...

...one really does have to wonder about the Republican obsession with doo doo, ca ca, diapers, poopy poppys, bat shit crazies, and general fecal obsession.

This is some unHoly Shit (R).

8. Samatha Bee gutted this puke on the Daily Show.

 


If I knew how to embed a video I'd do it for you. It's worth watching. The guy came up with this no tax pledge in the seventh grade, unless the Daily Show put words into his mouth, the Republican Party's foundation for governing was an idea by a seventh grader.

14. LOL

 

The funniest thing is that intelligent 7th graders understand the basic economic needs of different socioeconomic groups, and the need for taxes. Many will even understand the philosophy of progressive taxation & its fairness.

Most people get over the "MINE! It's all MINE!" stage about 2nd grade.

9. Said Obama is 'old and grey'

Norquist expresses skepticism over Obama’s promise to reach out to Republicans.

“Obama has gotten to be old and he has grey hair and he has never sat down and civilly talked to people who don’t agree with him in his life,” he says.

15. Amazing

 

That's probably the greatest case of psychological projection I've ever seen.

But some other repig will probably outdo him today, maybe in an hour or in the next minute.

11. Doesn't that make Grover a "poopy head", too?

since Obama kept pointing out that Romney's and Ryan's ideas of trickle down nonsense were being dictated by Norquist and his pledge?

Norquist practically called Romney a brain dead automaton who will do as he's told: “All we have to do is replace Obama. … We are not auditioning for fearless leader. We don’t need a president to tell us in what direction to go. We know what direction to go…. We just need a president to sign this stuff….Pick a Republican with enough working digits to handle a pen to become president of the United States…. His job is to be captain of the team, to sign the legislation that has already been prepared.”

12. "What a waste it is to lose one's mind... or not to have a mind at all."


We are witnessing the complete mental/nervous breakdown of the "brains" of the GOP.

I really do think it's safe to say, our long national nightmare is over when it comes to these crazies ever getting power again. We've won.

18. Grover Again???

What is with this guy? Back in December he was sure that the Rs would keep the house, take the senate, and the white house. In fact, the R president only had to have 4 fingers to sign the legislation given to him by the R house and senate. Well, Grover you were wrong. No senate and no puppet president.

The other night on CNN with Piers Morgan he and Robert Reisch were discussint the tax rates and pledge. Grover seemed upset and mentioned that this is not a kingdom.

But Grover is the king of the no increase in taxes pledge and he is king of the Rs in congress. What does he have on them? What prevents these R congressman (and women) to be statesmen?

26. cuz all Obama voters are 4 yr olds who want stuff. Like life-saving benefits

for our tax dollars instead of more war machines.

You know, stuff instead of snuff.

I think teeny weeny Norquist-olini needs to take a bath. And clean his mind. be careful not to slip down the drain, Grover.

Even the GOP is just about ready to throw him under the bus.
