bain romney wants "Etch-A-Sketch" to start tonight, but campaign 2012 is PERSONAL!

So now bain romney, the least interesting man in the world as so well described by Bill Maher, wants to wave his magical gold and platinum diamond encrusted wand and have all of America forget the extreme rightist tirade of the last few months as he pursues his self perceived waltz to electoral glory in November.

Sorry, mittens.

You've gotten into bed with an entire legion of devils and demons with a malignant cynicism that only belies the deeply ingrained air of smarm that permeates your entire persona.

My wife's best friend is a lesbian. She has been in a loving relationship with her life partner for the last 13 years. When we were homeless three years ago, it was these 2 women who invited us to share their home. It wasn't our pastor, who presided, at the time, over at least 5 EMPTY rectories.

In republican land, YOUR allies in right wing hate radio and the teabagger movement consider our very good friends to be less than human. I take that VERY personally.

rush limbooger called Sandra Fluke a slut and a prostitute and demanded to see videos of her having sex for having the temerity to want to testify about her's and other women's health on an equal footing with a group of old out of touch and quite possibly incontinent windbag clergyMEN. You expected to get away with merely saying that you wouldn't have used limbooger's words. My wife is a beautiful, accomplished, intelligent and very competent woman who wants to have a say in her own health care and have the right to make decisions about her own body.

In republican land, YOUR allies in right wing hate radio and the teabagger movement consider her to be a prostitute. I take that VERY personally.

In Florida, an African American young man armed with iced tea and Skittles was killed by an armed racist Rambo wannabe who had been told by a 911 operator to NOT follow him. In the aftermath of this obscene murder, the far right that YOU have embraced has done all that it can to denigrate this young man. YOUR response was to issue a vacuous and tepid statement of the obvious calling travesty this a tragedy. Big whoop. My son is a gentle, funny, intelligent, kind hearted, generous and charitable 12 year old African American young man.

In republican land, YOUR allies in right wing hate radio and the teabagger movement have done all they can to nail a target sign to my son's back. I take that VERY personally.

From June of 2011 until last week, I went through a 10 month NIGHTMARE of unemployment. We are always told that when unemployed, you have to work full time on finding a job. Well, I worked overtime! I had so damn many interviews for which I had such high hopes and gotten nothing. I saw such cynicism in interviewers and such brazen and blatant age discrimination that there were times I was in such fits of depression and despair that I may just have given up but for the unconditional love and support of my family (and no small amount of kindness expressed by many in this community). I couldn't give up. I have a family. I HAD NO CHOICE but to keep going forward and I finally got a well paying job doing something I'll love doing. My new job is to help people find jobs.

In republican land, YOUR allies in right wing hate radio and the teabagger movement say that people like me are freeloaders just vacationing on the public's dime with no counter statement from you. I take that VERY personally.

In this election, the republican party is dominated by the exact people who have declared war on gays, women, minorities, the unemployed, immigrants and anyone who isn't among the 1%. These are the same people who have been making up reasons to have temper tantrums since President Obama took office. These are the people who claimed that President Obama wasn't really the president since john roberts frigged up on the oath. These are the people who had fits over President Obama having MUSTARD on a burger and wearing a sweater in the oval office on the weekend.

Surely, we who are either one of the types of people who romney and his allies in right wing hate radio and the teabagger movement have declared war on, can find reasons to take this campaign VERY personally. If you aren't in one of those groups but love someone who is, you can find a reason to take this campaign VERY personally. If you are just a plain old decent and moral person, you can find a reason to take this campaign VERY personally.

Mister romney, I also want this to be an "Etch-A-Sketch" campaign. In November, I want to take an Etch-A-Sketch to the republican 2012 campaign, turn it over, and erase any memory of the thought that YOU were EVER this near to even being considered as a possible president.

The way to do that is to give the republican party, your allies in hate radio and the teabagger movement and YOU personally, a resounding repudiation at the polls. I promise to do all that I can to accomplish exactly that.

That's my very long 2 cents, and quite possibly overpriced at that!

PEACE!

1. Please forgive my off topic post

But my warmest congratulations go out to you on finding new employment with the added bonus of being able to help people while you are performing your new job. Also my wishes of the best of luck go out to every member in your family.

Of course, I also happen to agree with every comment that you have made regarding the conservative culture in our country!

2. Thank you, left on green only.

I DO enjoy this job. I think that the fact that I went through the nightmare is one of the reasons I got the job in the first place. I can certainly identify and (to the disdain of the republicans) empathise.

I'm more of a "job creator" now than bain romney!

PEACE!

3. Update!

I understand that bain romney used part of his speech last night to demean government workers and making remarks about how they make more than the governed people. My wife is a Maine state worker. She works her rump off every day.

In republican land, YOUR allies in right wing hate radio and the teabagger movement consider her to be a lazy do-nothing. You continue to promote that line of BS, mr. romney. I take that VERY personally!

PEACE!
