The Romneybots are rabbid

I talked to my 89 year old dad last night. Wanted to talk to him in the event Sandy took our power for several days. H lives in Iowa and is a life long Democrat and retired AFL-CIO member.

He was all excited because the local football team was one win away from the championship. But then he went on about a phone call he had received a few days before. It was from my youngest brother who has become the most extreme right wing wackjob.

My dad was upset about this phone call because my brother was harrasing him about his vote and his religion. Dad told me that he was going to hell according to my brother because he is voting for Obama and is Catholic.

Now first of all, we were raised Catholic and now my brother is ridiculing it like it is a cult or something, this really made my dad angry.

Second, my brother knows well where my parents always stood politically, my mother always worked for one campaign or another, we always had big parties in the back yard with some big name Democrats of the day attending. And with dad being in a union, he knew where to put his support.

So my brother is so rabid, that he calls his father and harassed him over his vote. He made the mistake of telling my dad that Romney was like Reagan. I am sure dad went ballistic on that one, it was during the Reagan's union busting that my father was forced to retire early.

Dad indicated that this was not the first such call from my brother. What is wrong with someone who can't accept that their own father has different views than they do?

I don't even talk with my brother any more because he is so radical.

We were up all night - flooding in the basement

One of my sump pumps didn't come on and flooded the basement.

Now I have to go to work. It could be a long day.

Cars have been honking as they pass my house all day

I live on a busy street leading into mcmansionville with several estate homes dotting the neighborhood. I have signs for several Democratic candidates, Obama, Sherrod Brown state and county candidates plus one supporting Issue 2 here in Ohio.

I can't say for certain, but have been wondering, if all the honking is in support for Democrats, Obama, Brown or Issue 2.

Issue 2 is a referendum to have an independent council form congressional district called for after the lousy job the republican lawmakers did.

Forward this

31 consecutive months of job growth and 5.2 million new private sector jobs. You should take a look and then pass it on.

So if Obama is responsible for Benghazi, does that mean that Bush is responsible for 9/11?

Just asking since they want to make it political.

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.
