4. Despite His Corporate Media Enablers...People Are Starting To Notice...
...what a total hypocrite Gramps McVain is. The "maverick" shit doesn't work when you know this slimeball is for 100 more years of endless misery and war...and no matter how gramps and his enablers try to smooth this one over, it's not working...he's welded to boooshie's unpopular war. Then there's his admission he knows nothing about economics...and his screwed up policies show it. A tax cut does little for a person who doesn't have a job or is fighting to keep their home. Talking about capital gains cuts while millions have seen their portfolios and pensions wither away does nothing. Ask a Repugnican a question about economics and be prepared to hear a story from the twilight zone...and nothing the corporate media can say or try to "re-phrase" will smooth over this very major disconnect. Now he wants to have a "gas tax" holiday that may save people a few cents per gallon while it takes money away from maintaining the crumbling road system.

The GOOP agenda is in total ruins. They promised "fiscal responsibility"...we got $4 a gallon gas, shrinking savings and earning, inflation at its highest rate in 30 years and a trail of corruption a county mile wide.

Gramps has a serious problem with all those lobbyists who are hangin' with him...and my hopes are there are Democratic strategists and oppo researchers who have compiled a list of all those paid-fors on Gramps payroll and how they've screwed over the middle class.

As Digby says, Gramps is the most flawed GOOP candidate in our lifetimes...and the fact he's not breaking much over 40% in polling with all the positive spin he's getting shows the "ceiling" has been hit...as he gets "old" and is pressed to specify, his numbers will fall.
