“So it’s not – you just can’t go to the electorate and say, we blocked everything that President Obama was trying to do. I think you got to show them some positive results and some positive vision for the future.

And I’ll say one other thing to you: If we don’t enact immigration reform, I don’t – let’s say we enact it, comprehensive immigration reform – I don’t think it gains a single Hispanic voter, but what it does, it puts us on a playing field where we can compete for the Hispanic voter.

If we don’t do that, frankly, I don’t see – I see further polarization of the Hispanic voter and the demographics are clear that the Republican Party cannot win a national election. That’s just a fact.”

– Senator John ‘he oughta know” McCain

personal thought:

“I think you got to show them some positive results and some positive vision for the future.”

Well I tell ya what, except for immigration reform, I can’t think of a single positive ‘thing’ the Senator has done in the past five-years. Not a one.

Mitt Romney: Hurricane Sandy ‘Didn’t Come At The Right Time’

Via: Huffington Post

Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Hurricane Sandy — a major storm that pummeled the East Coast in October 2012, just before Election Day — “didn’t come at the right time.”

“I can tell you the hurricane didn’t come at the right time,” Romney told Fox News’ Neil Cavuto on Friday.

Sandy caused 159 deaths and between $50 and $100 billion in damage.

After the storm hit, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R) and President Barack Obama formed an infamous bipartisan bond, with the two working on recovery efforts and touring the storm’s wreckage together in the days just before the election.

“He wanted to be president less than anyone I’ve met in my life,” Tagg Romney (photo: FAR right) told the paper.

“He had no desire to … run. If he could have found someone else to take his place … he would have been ecstatic to step aside.”

“If he could have found someone else to take his place …”

Hey, what about Michele ‘bat-shit insane’ Bachmann? Or, Herman ‘hold the sausage’ Cain? Or, ‘Frothy’ Santorum?

Well, I believe the GOP wingnuts who supported them during the campaign, thought they were eminently qualified.

Willard Romney (MI-UT-MA-CA-Cayman Islands) ‘GOP Moron of the YEAR’

Via: NYT

A week after losing the election to President Obama, Mitt Romney blamed his overwhelming electoral loss on what he said were big “gifts” that the president had bestowed on loyal Democratic constituencies, including young voters, African-Americans and Hispanics.

In a conference call on Wednesday afternoon with his national finance committee, Mr. Romney said that the president had followed the “old playbook” of wooing specific interest groups  — “especially the African-American community, the Hispanic community and young people,” Mr. Romney explained — with targeted gifts and initiatives.

“In each case they were very generous in what they gave to those groups,” Mr. Romney said.

‘The ‘GOP Big Tent’ now welcomes African Americans, Hispanics. and young people’; lasted what, eight days?

Romney was no more, no less, a shit-head than:

Gingrich, Santorum, Perry, Bachmann, Paul, Herman ‘hold the  sausage. baby’. >>>

So what’s your point, Grover?

Nov 1 – The Simple Case for saying Obama is the FAVORITE

Via: Nate Silver – NYT

If you are following some of the same people that I do on Twitter, you may have noticed some pushback about our contention that Barack Obama is a favorite (and certainly not a lock) to be re-elected. I haven’t come across too many analyses suggesting that Mitt Romney is the favorite. (There are exceptions.) But there are plenty of people who say that the race is a “tossup.”

What I find confounding about this is that the argument we’re making is exceedingly simple. Here it is:

Obama’s ahead in Ohio.

A somewhat-more-complicated version:

Obama is leading in the polls of Ohio and other states that would suffice for him to win 270 electoral votes, and by a margin that has historically translated into victory a fairly high percentage of the time.

And the bottom-line numbers:

Electoral Votes:

Obama = 305.3

Romney = 232.7

. . .

Chance of Winning:

Obama = 83.7%

Romney = 16.3%

. . .

Popular Vote (NOT that it matters)

Obama = 50.6%

Romney = 48.4%

‘Evangelicals Refuse to Support Romney, Urge Voters to Write In Jesus’

. . .

Internet evangelist Bill Keller is urging the faithful to promise to vote for Jesus for president in this election.

So far, his website, VotingforJesus.com, says it has more than 1.6 million pledges to write in the name of Jesus on their ballots instead of any other presidential candidate.

If even HALF of those who signed the pledge vote accordingly, this could signal real trouble for Mitt Romney in close races by reducing the pool of voters who usually opt for the GOP.

But Keller, in an email interview, argues otherwise. “A large percentage of the people signed up are part of the 9 million self-identified evangelicals who never voted at all in 2008,” he maintains. “While they will write in the name of Jesus for president, they will also vote for men and women who share their faith values down ticket. It is flawed logic that if you don’t vote for Romney, you are costing him votes or helping Obama. The only way to vote for either man is to vote for them.”  (Good Gawd Almighty – Keller is a complete and total, MORON, but I luv it!)

Mayor Bloomberg endorses President Obama

Via: Huffington Post

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg endorsed President Barack Obama for reelection on Thursday, Bloomberg TV reported and The Huffington Post confirmed.

The mayor, an Independent, did not endorse a candidate in the 2008 election and hadn’t seem poised to do so this time around either. But he said in an op ed published on his website that his eagerness to see action on climate change legislation persuaded him to back a second term for the president. Bloomberg also explained that while he admired Mitt Romney, his stance on a number of social issues gave him pause.

“I believe Mitt Romney is a good and decent man, and he would bring valuable business experience to the Oval Office. He understands that America was built on the promise of equal opportunity, not equal results. In the past he has also taken sensible positions on immigration, illegal guns, abortion rights and health care. But he has reversed course on all of them, and is even running against the health-care model he signed into law in Massachusetts.”

. . .

President Obama said he was honored to receive the endorsement.

“While we may not agree on every issue, Mayor Bloomberg and I agree on the most important issues of our time — that the key to a strong economy is investing in the skills and education of our people, that immigration reform is essential to an open and dynamic democracy, and that climate change is a threat to our children’s future, and we owe it to them to do something about it,” he said in a statement.Just as importantly, we agree that whether we are Democrats, Republicans, or independents, there is only one way to solve these challenges and move forward as a nation — together.”

Personal thought:

‘Good and Decent’?

I don’t believe LYING in ads about Chrysler plans to move operations to China is a ‘Good and Decent’ thing to do.

Do the RIGHT thing – Re-Elect Obama/Biden!
