I was just driving calmly to the grocery store, until I heard this NPR story about Romney campaigning in Northern Virginia, angling for the women vote. Romney actually claims that Obama is responsible for increasing wealth disparity in the US!!

How can this man even breathe in his miasma of lies??

Listen at about 1:59 minutes in the tape. Infuriating.

Maybe they can provide a FAX, but not facts.

2. Willard has lost credibility

The only people he can con now are the fundies and the teabaggers. He can't even con moderate republicans anymore.

the teabaggers, fundies, etc. and to keep the machine cheats overwhelmed.

3. Repukes want women to be subservient and beholden to men

Rape victims should bear the rapists child? To Ryan rape is just "another means of conception"?!?

4. Without a shred of dignity or credibility, these people can sit there and claim

that Obama is for $5 and up a gallon gas, and in the next breath, claim that he's keeping the gas prices low, so that he'll get re-elected.

And then they'll say that he's shooting up the prices.

6. He's probably talking about the Census report just released

Start at page 7 (in the document page numbering):
http://www.census.gov/prod/2012pubs/p60-243.pdf
Income inequality between 2010 and 2011 increased as measured
by changes in the shares of aggregate household income by quintiles, the Gini index, the
Theil index, and the Atkinson measures. The Gini index showed a 1.6 percent increase from
2010. This is the first time the Gini index has shown an annual increase since 1993, the earliest
year available for comparable measures of income inequality (Tables 2 and A-2).


A slack labor market is responsible for this, so I don't think you can blame it on Obama, but incomes in the US are declining.

7. Anyone Got a clue

how Obama was supposed to have done this. I personally thought it was a 40 year process.

9. They only mention it now that it's in their interest to do so.

It's bad enough that Romney, with his history at Bain (and what that meant for hundreds of American workers) and of course his proposed round of cuts in programs (and cuts in taxes for TOP incomes...), should presume to talk about stagnant income and/or promise higher wages (I see nothing in his 59 points that will address that).

But what really burns me up is that Karl Rove's group has been running ads for months in an effort to target women in the sandwich generation (i.e., with aging parents and dependent children). There's much wringing of hands that insurance premiums are rising and "Mom's Medicare has been cut," etc., etc.

Well, then, where was the Rove empathy/sympathy/outrage when premiums were going up during two Bush terms? Or when the buying power of ordinary people took hit after hit? Or when stable, gainfully employed people were completely shut out of the housing market due to the bubble?

11. Romeny is Trash Bagging dead Babies

REMEMBER THIS: Its rather curious that Mitt Romeny & Paul Ryan are staunchly pro lifers; however Mitt Romeny is a greedy money grubbing bastard who has made $50,000,000.00 million (USD) while he was trash bagging dead babies which he serviced through Stericycle / Bain Capital; Mitt Romeny has no soul, no shame and is a repugnant despicable human being that is lower than whale poop. It appears to be one of the reasons he denied being in control of Bain Capital; A issue that we now know he has been lying about all along, Which comes as no surprise as he is a pathological liar, a true sociopath.
