Why So Little Outrage Over Melissa Harris-Perry's Insulting Mitt Romney's Black Grandchild?

If you haven’t heard of this before is because it has something to do with the child’s race. Were the child white, Romney’s (former) acolytes would be screaming bloody murder about Harris-Perry’s comments on Fox Noise and A.M. hate radio shows.

47 Percent Legal Assistance Fund by Scott Prouty

I’m the person that released the now famous Mitt Romney 47 percent video. I’m a regular guy who cares about social justice and the future of the United States. I shot the video and shared it because it was important for citizens to know the full truth about a man who had a chance of becoming president.  If you appreciate what I did, please consider donating to help with my current and future legal expenses.

Any funds left over will be used to to help me go back to school.

It’s always been my dream to attend law school. I’d like to be a socially responsible lawyer who can help the 47 percent  navigate our legal system. Thank you for your donations!

Jon Huntsman dumps Mitt Romney

  • ABBY HUNTSMAN: I want to bring in our Huffington Post Editorial Director, Howard Fineman. Howard, you’ve been following this story. I want to ask you, Dad, what did you think about this statement?
  • JON HUNTSMAN: I cringe. It’s like fingers on a chalkboard every time I hear men talk about women’s health issues. When I hear them talk about things like this, it makes me cringe. It doesn’t deserve to be part of our political discourse right now. People want the economy fixed, they want our competitive prospects enhanced, and they want Americans brought together as one. This is a complete waste of time for Americans, and they know it, and they’re angered by this kind of talk.
  • A. HUNTSMAN: Would you have taken your ads off if you were Mitt Romney?
  • J. HUNTSMAN: I think I would have simply said, “I’m withdrawing my support.”
Let’s not kid ourselves about just how cheap offshore labor really is. We not only pay substantially less per hour, we also avoid the costs we would incur if these workers immigrated here. We don’t pay for their medical expenses when they show up in the emergency room without insurance. We don’t pay for their pension costs if they don’t save for retirement. We don’t pay for their children’s public education. Nor do we pay for their out-of-wedlock children, their unemployment benefits and workers’ compensation, their slip and fall torts, their wear and tear on our public infrastructure, and the cost of their drunk driving, drug use and other crimes. We outsource pollution, its adverse effects on our health, and its clean-up costs. Neither the employees nor their employers are here to vote and seek political handouts.
Former Bain Capital partner and Mitt Romney supporter Edward Conard extols the virtues of “cheap offshore labor” in his book “Unintended Consequences.” Conard was for a long time the head of the manufacturing practice at Bain Capital. As we speak, Sensata Technologies, which is owned by Bain Capital, is preparing to offshore 170 jobs from a manufacturing plant in Freeport, Illinois to China. (via upwithchris)

Look At Tumblr validate this Dog & Pony Show

I’m compromising by buying a car from a company that doesn’t care to have a detail oriented person who knows how to use a spelling checker sell me a used car. But I’m not compromising my principles that people with criminal records who have done their time have a right to have input in to this clusterfuck that we call a republic.

Just to give you an idea about how strongly I feel about it, I’d rather watch the two teams that defeated My Padres in the MLB World Series play instead.

But if you want to sell out, be my guest. Don’t forget to scrub twice after the debate to wipe the scuzz off of you when you bathe.

Criminal records? Jeez….

That confirms it, CNN - it’s just a dog and pony show tonight.

Leaked Debate Agreement Shows Both Obama and Romney are Sniveling Cowards

Both campaigns are terrified at anything even remotely spontaneous happening.

They aren’t permitted to ask each other questions, propose pledges to each other, or walk outside a “predesignated area.” And for the town-hall-style debate tomorrow night, the audience members posing questions aren’t allowed to ask follow-ups (their mics will be cut off as soon as they get their questions out). Nor will moderator Candy Crowley.

If you want to watch a real contest tonight, you can watch baseball.

The League of Women Voters is withdrawing its sponsorship of the presidential debate scheduled for mid-October because the demands of the two campaign organizations would perpetrate a fraud on the American voter. It has become clear to us that the candidates’ organizations aim to add debates to their list of campaign-trail charades devoid of substance, spontaneity and honest answers to tough questions. The League has no intention of becoming an accessory to the hoodwinking of the American public.
