10 Awful Things a President Mitt Romney Would Likely Do

With the polls showing a tightening race, a Mitt Romney presidency is becoming a real possibility. As I write, New York Times polling guru Nate Silver gives the Republican a 29-percent chance of emerging victorious when the votes are cast in just under two weeks.

The Romney-Ryan campaign has offered a bewildering and often contradictory array of positions on the issues, which makes predicting what a Romney agenda might look like exceptionally difficult. What's more, we'd see a very different Romney administration if Democrats retain control of the Senate. Silver gives them an 88 percent chance of doing so, projecting Dems to hold 52.4 seats in the next Congress (it's highly unlikely they'll win the House).


1. The Romney-Ryan Budget
2. Tax Cuts for the rich
3. Repeal ObamaCare
4. Voucherize Medicare
5. Turn Medicaid into a block-grant program
6. Social Security
7. State Children's Health Insurance Program (S-CHIP)
8. The Rest
9. If Dems Have 40-50 Seats in Senate (With Ryan the Tie-Breaking Vote) Mitch McConnell, might embrace filibuster reform
10. If Dems Hold Senate they will act as a firewall against the radical restructuring of the public sector promised by the Ryan budget.

What is Romeny's problem with the truth? - He is a bullshitter!

The President was just telling the truth.

Good pic from last night in Cleveland with the President


We were about 30 feet in front of the podium.

It was cool to watch his plane land and pull right up to the crowd, never watched him deplane in person before.

Should my sister vote for my brothers?

I was talking to my sister last night and she received absentee ballot request forms for two of my brothers, both republicans. The reason she received them is because they still vote in Iowa and use my fathers address (for more than 30 years). Neither lives in Iowa. My sister gets mail for my dad because he lived there for a while and the forward mail never completely reverted back to his address.

So my sister has these applications for absentee ballots. We were laughing about the possibilities that she could vote for them and they would be out of luck.




























Don't worry, she isn't really going to follow through, it was just a good laugh we had about the possibilities of changing 2 republican votes without them knowing it. Or will she? Hmmmmm!

Romney changed his view of the Detroit bailout in a desperate attempt for Ohio

Romney's chances in Ohio tied to softening auto bailout stance

If Ohio has been President Barack Obama’s “firewall” – the state guarding against a disappointing Electoral College result on Nov. 6 – then the president’s re-election team might consider Obama’s well-publicized auto industry rescue as a type of firewall within a firewall.

Obama has taken every effort to remind voters in Ohio of his authorization of a 2009 bailout of General Motors and Chrysler that is widely credited with preserving the companies as they stood on the brink of catastrophe. In the same breath, the president is sure to mention the op-ed – “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt” – penned by Romney for the New York Times, which called for a managed bankruptcy for the automakers supported partially by government guarantees.

There are real differences between how Obama sought the auto industry rescue and how Romney, judging by his own comments at the time, might have engineered support for GM and Chrysler. But if the Republican presidential nominee manages to win Midwestern states like Ohio and Wisconsin on Nov. 6, he could point to his recent messaging on the auto bailout as a reason why.

Romney has essentially tried to take credit for Obama’s actions, arguing that it was the president who ended up following Romney’s counsel all along, and lead GM and Chrysler toward a “managed bankruptcy.”

Did anyone catch this Mitt Goody last night... "8 to 10 years to balance the budget"

Romney and the republicans are all over Obama because he hasn't turned the economy around fast enough yet last night he said not once but twice that he would have the budget balanced in 8 to 10 years.

Tell me if I am wrong, that he didn't say something to that effect. It was during one of the times where Shieffer was trying to stop him and he continued on and on.

My encounter with a Florida Romney-dick-head

We are traveling home from visiting our daughter in Florida when my wife suggest she wants to take some pecans home. The next sign I see is for one of the tourist trap for citrus and pecans. So I pull in and stop, we check the place out, sample some of the pralines and were greeted by the proprietor.

Now this asshole started the conversation by saying he was hoping for a landslide, I said many of us were, but it looks like things are going to be tighter than we would like. He then said Romney was going to be in Daytona day after tomorrow, to which said, I am sorry. He then revealed that he was full Romney, that brought some weird visions to my head. Again I said in a sarcastic tone, I am sorry.

In this process, my wife had picked out some packages of pecans and laid them on the counter. This guy was going full dialog about how Obama isn't doing anything for America. At that point, I said, we vote with our wallet as well as at the poll and said I don't think we can buy the nuts at this location, there are several other traps on up the road.

As we were leaving he said something about wanting to see Obama's handy work, to drive by the hotel across the street and see all the homeless. My response was that Romney wasn't going to do anything for those people because they are part of the 47% that he doesn't care about.

We got the nuts down the road for half the price.

This was at US 1 and I95 in Daytona Florida.
