Mitt Romney, meet Mitt Romney

As we saw this morning on the abortion issue, this just brushes the surface of Romney’s recent flipflops. But it’s telling nonetheless:

It makes me want to learn video-editing software.

I’d take him any day against Bozo the amateur. This Libya thing is going to stick to the wall and the press, excluding Bookman, is going to be forced to acknowledge it despite their misgivings. It’s just too big for anyone with half a brain to ignore. Clinton, Bozo, Carney and Rice all knew they were not telling the truth, yet they fed us this BS story about some video just to cover this whole sordid mess up. Clinton should, at best, resign. Rice was just tooting the Bozo horn but she should also resign. Carney, obviously, lied and Bozo….. we haven’t heard anything from him but apologies, video stories and shuckin’ and jivin’. This is the biggest thing since Watergate and we don’t hear a word from our “opinion journalist”, Bookman. Your silence is deafening.

Pre-debate Romney vs debate-and-post debate Romney.

If, in fact, the reports of son Tagg (and wife?) telling him ‘enough of this. Be youself. Get back to what you were because we don’t recognize you and you don’t need the farright now” are correct, then I’ll take what comfort I can in hoping that a Romney Administration won’t be a new Dark Age of Conservatism.

‘course, he still needs to get rid of much of his foreign policy team (and I’ve read reports there is dissension in the ranks) but at least Romney’s made a start in the right direction. (Get it? “Right direction” by moving Left?) -

They’ve been all over the ajc for two weeks now with pop-up ads and ads that make it hard to read what you want to read. I reckon they thought I wouldn’t notice that nickle-a-can increase on dog food or the fruit that was hard and unripe. And this Katie Couric must be headed down the tubes where she belongs. She’s on about every page you click on. Couldn’t happen to a nastier person.

And Romney is “walking back” (I really don’t like that phrase) his abortion comments from earlier this week. As of earlier today is again fully pro-life rather than pro-life but having no plans to push laws that would limit choice, or something like that. Tune in tomorrow for another episode of “The Romney Turns.”

I’m am going to be really chapped if this guy wins. It isn’t really even a matter of I disagree with most everything he stands for (at least on alternate days and depending on his internal polls). He shouldn’t be able to do too, too much harm if the Dems hold the Senate and grow some “Spanish body part descriptor deleters” and use the filibuster like the GOP has for even minor legislation and, more importantly for upcoming Supreme Court appointments. But, this big lie stuff bugs me. I love everyone, this month and I’m not talking about that other stuff you have on tape. Jeez.

This has nothing to do with this arrogant buffoon’s race, my dear. It has everything to do with what a rank amateur he is about coming clean when he screws up. And that seems to happen more often than not. He is our president, at least for a few more months and he is expecting the American electorate to believe this fairy tale about Libya? He lied to us, lynnie. He lied to you. Doesn’t that upset you? Wouldn’t you expect anyone to be just a little upset about this clown’s inability to handle a foreign policy crisis such as this? He is supposed to be our leader, protector of the faith, commander and chief of our armed forces, leader of the free world….. and he has fallen woefully short of expectations. Racism indeed.

Speaking of liars Jay, what about this Benghazi thing?” Obama sat and lied on the Letterman show and The View and everywhere else (multiple times on the stump) about “the film” causing this but yet none of you in the mainstream media thought this weird even when faced with the facts that he and his administration and our intelligence knew otherwise. Now the facts are starting to reveal that he knew all about it and they knew that the ambassador was in danger but did nothing. He cannot bring himself to say the word “terrorist attack” can he? Why? Is his liberal mindset so great that the cannot tell the truth and he is willing sell out and lie to the American people in his attempt to placate the Islamists? Or does he still believe his own dillusional and misguided press that he is the great uniter for the world? His weakness is held in contempt in the mid-east and the rest of the world and all of them (China, Russia, etc, etc,) see it as something to be used for their advantage. His weakness is also held in contempt in the US but he and those members of his adoring press such as yourself are too diluded to acknowledge it. God man, do you have any integrity at all?

After watching the above videos….consider this.

•Federal prosecutors have threatened to arrest state employees for administering state laws, resulting in stalled programs and reduced patient access.

•U.S. Attorneys in California recently revived the Bush era tactic of threatening to seize property from landlords who rent to medical marijuana facilities.

•After 9 years of failing to respond, the DEA recently denied a petition to reschedule marijuana, ignoring a vast body of scientific evidence proving the drug’s medical efficacy.

•Federal threats have caused numerous banks to close the accounts of businesses that provide medical marijuana to qualified patients.

•The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms issued a surprising statement that medical marijuana patients may not purchase firearms.

•The IRS is shaking down medical marijuana providers for millions of dollars based on an obscure tax provision aimed at drug traffickers.

•A federal prosecutor even threatened to target newspapers that run ads for medical marijuana services.

•And, of course, the DEA continues to raid tax-paying businesses that are legal under state law.

http://news.firedoglake.com/2012/10/10/republicans-to-schumer-youre-ruining-everything/

Chuck Schumer definitely got under the skin of Republicans yesterday by suggesting that Democrats were being led into a “tax reform” trap. Until this point, Republicans had been fairly cagey about their tax plans for a grand bargain, but they were able to garner a mild consensus over the concept of broadening the tax base while lowering the rates. Far too many Democrats joined them in this theoretical agreement. And Schumer basically called it a con job. You know he was on the right track, given the responses at the upper echelon of the Republican leadership.
