Fuck You... Again!!! Romney Ignores Troops, Vets And Foreign Policy In ‘Closing Argument’ Speech

OK, I am going to say it.... and I don't throw this one around lightly...

Mitt Romney is Un-American


More at Think Progress:


Mitt Romney delivered what he reportedly dubbed his “closing argument” speech today in Wisconsin and while he rattled off a series of attacks on the Obama administration for various alleged failures, the former Massachusetts governor entirely ignored foreign policy. Actually not entirely. Romney did repeat his “wrongheaded” claim that he would label China a currency manipulator upon taking office, an idea that pretty much no one thinks is a good one.

It’s not entirely surprising that Romney had nothing to say today about veterans, the U.S. military, the war it is engaged in in Afghanistan or any other national security issue (recall he didn’t mention the troops or the war in Afghanistan in his RNC speech). He and his campaign has gone to great lengths to avoid talking foreign policy throughout the campaign. When he does, Romney sounds a lot like President Obama, at least he has since securing the Republican nomination for president. Before that though, Romney sounded more like Dick Cheney, which made sense because most of his foreign policy advisers are holdovers from from the George W. Bush administration.

Bush administration Secretary of State Gen. Colin Powell recently noticed this trend. “The governor who was speaking at the debate was saying things that were quite different from what he said earlier,” Powell said late last month while endorsing Obama for president, adding, “My concern which I’ve expressed previously in a public way is that sometimes I don’t sense he has thought through these issues as thoroughly.”

Obama delivered his “closing argument” speech yesterday, also in Wisconsin. “So long as I’m Commander-in-Chief, we will pursue our enemies with the strongest military the world has ever known,” he said. “But it’s time to use the savings from ending the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to start paying down our debts here and rebuilding America.”

‘Fox & Friends’: Delay NBC hurricane telethon because it might help Obama


these fucking guys!!

The hosts of Fox & Friends on Friday suggested that NBC should postpone a Hurricane Sandy telethon until after the election because making sure that the event did not benefit President Barack Obama was more important than helping storm victims.

NBC announced earlier this week that Christina Aguilera, Jon Bon Jovi, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen and Sting would all be performing a the Friday benefit concert, “Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together.” Money collected during the one-hour broadcast will go to the American Red Cross Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.

But because most of the announced stars have supported Obama in the past, conservative media have panned the concert as “an ode to Obama’s grand and glorious leadership during Hurricane Sandy.”

On Friday, Fox & Friends guest host Eric Bolling floated the idea that NBC had rushed the concert “to make President Obama look presidential.”

“It does look like they are trying squeeze things in,” co-host Steve Doocy agreed. “Where are the conservative performers? There aren’t any on the list I saw.

(Love it!!) President Obama Looks To Make Mitt Romney Pay In Ohio For Misleading Jeep Ad

President Obama Looks To Make Mitt Romney Pay In Ohio For Misleading Jeep Ad

HILLIARD, Ohio -- President Obama ripped Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney on Friday for running a misleading TV ad implying that U.S. auto workers are going to lose their jobs because Chrysler is moving the production of Jeeps for Chinese consumers to China.

It's a move by the president to capitalize on what, tactically, appears to have been a strategy by Romney's campaign in Ohio that has backfired. Obama is planning to press the issue all day Friday at three campaign stops in Ohio, including a midday rally in Lima, where there are about 1,600 jobs at a local Ford manufacturing plant.

"Everybody knows it's not true," Obama said of Romney's ad to a crowd in a large barn at the Franklin County Fairgrounds, in the suburbs of Columbus, Ohio, a crucial swing-section of this swing state.

Obama cited reports of auto workers in Ohio calling their employer to ask if their jobs were in jeopardy after seeing Romney's ad. Romney's ad is technically correct -- it says Chrysler is going to build Jeeps in China, which is true -- but it leaves the impression that the creation of jobs in China will cost U.S. auto workers their livelihood. Obama pointed out that Chrysler is in the process of hiring 1,000 new workers for a Jeep plant in Toledo, Ohio.

"I understand that Gov. Romney's had a tough time here in Ohio because he was against saving the auto industry," Obama said. "And it's hard to run away from that position when you're on videotape saying the words, 'Let Detroit go bankrupt.'"

"And I know we're close to an election, but this isn't a game," Obama said. "These are people's jobs. These are people's lives … You don't scare hardworking Americans just to scare up some votes. That's not what being president is all about."


Ha! Romney Slowly Turning Into $100 Bill (Onion)

Romney Slowly Turning Into $100 Bill

TAMPA, FL—Campaign sources expressed concern today over Mitt Romney’s green complexion, papery skin, and slowly flattening body frame, prompting increased speculation that the Republican presidential candidate has been gradually transforming into a $100 bill.

Staff members said the Republican candidate—whose skin pigmentation has now been fully overtaken by optically variable ink and whose spinal column has slowly shifted into an outline of Philadelphia’s Independence Hall—has been undergoing the transformation throughout the campaign and now more closely resembles a banknote than a human being.

“When Mitt’s skin began changing, everyone was worried he was suffering from some sort of strange health condition,” said an anonymous Romney staffer, who went on to describe the loud crinkling noises the candidate now makes whenever he walks, and the potent smell of paper stock that has overwhelmed campaign headquarters since mid-April. “But when one of our aides noticed Benjamin Franklin’s head starting to protrude from Gov. Romney’s chest, it became clear that he was actually becoming money.”

“We’re not really sure how or why this is happening, and Mitt himself has yet to acknowledge it,” the source continued. “With that being said, he has to realize something’s wrong. I mean, he clearly has the phrase ‘federal reserve note’ running straight down his face, for Christ’s sake.”

The first signs of Romney’s metamorphosis into the denomination of U.S. currency were reportedly observed during a November 2011 campaign stop in Alexandria, VA, when a mixture of black and green ink begin flowing out of the candidate’s nose and ears. Aides said they became worried again later that month after spotting what initially appeared to be large, bold tattoos of serial codes and Timothy Geithner’s signature on Romney’s arms.

President Obama's Message to Mitt Romney on Jeep ads: 'THIS ISN'T A GAME'


From the AP, the first comments from the president on what has been the subject of the race-within-the-race in Ohio this week:

President Barack Obama is accusing Republican rival Mitt Romney of running dishonest ads on the auto industry to scare voters in Ohio, saying: "This isn't a game. These are people's jobs."

The Romney ads, which have been airing in Toledo, the home of a Jeep plant, suggest automakers General Motors and Chrysler are adding jobs in China at the expense of workers in Ohio.

In his first comments on the ads, Obama says they are "not true. Everybody knows it's not true."

Obama says Romney is trying to alarm Ohioans "just to scare up some votes" in one of the nation's most important swing states in Tuesday's election.

The importance of the bailout has been debated for months in terms of what it would mean for voters in the Midwest, but Romney elevated it with a series of last-minute ads that the car companies in questions have denounced.
