This video is really good, and the sad part is that it did not need that much editing. This is the discussion we are having in 2016? Trump did his best to call into question the validity of the first African American president, and now even after his coming loss in a few weeks he has called into question the validity of the first woman president.
Well Mr. Trump here is a message for you. Yes there will be a portion of the population that will never recognize a woman or a black man as the leader of their nation because they are just “deplorable” people. The reality is that 25 years ago when the first Clinton was running for president you needed a portion of those people to win. Not anymore Donald, you and your loathsome group of supporters are a shrinking minority. In a few weeks you will be nothing but what you always have been, a loser who was born on third base and is now standing on first. Bye Felicia….
I told you so. Obama right and Europe wrong about way out of Great Recession
Author: Larry Elliott
Since the recession, Britain and the US have outperformed the eurozone for the same reason they did better in the 1930s: they have made fewer macro-economic blunders. The Fed and the Bank of England were more aggressive in their use of monetary policy and when it came to fiscal policy, George Osborne quietly abandoned his original deficit reduction targets when the deleterious impact of an over-aggressive austerity strategy became apparent.
Expect France and Italy to follow a similar approach. François Hollande and Matteo Renzi will swear allegiance to the god of budgetary orthodoxy while at the same time borrowing and spending a bit more than they are supposed to. They should be applauded for doing so, because this god is a false god.
While you watch the GOP primary debates remember this article. They would have done the exact opposite. We also should credit George W. Bush, yes I said that. He along with the Democrats in Congress started us down the path to recovery that most in the GOP opposed (Google TARP). Just look around the world to see how well the other options worked.
CBS has a must read article up discussing the Romney campaign’s reaction to the election. You can read it here.
Every national campaign has a ton of staff who read polls, does their own polling, targets voters, etc. For a campaign to be successful you need those people to do their jobs right. It seems that in the Romney campaign those staffers just fed the boss the BS he wanted to hear. Going into election day the polls and analysts agreed that Obama had an easier path to victory. No one said the election was over, however the fact the Romney campaign did not think there was a way they could lose is mind boggling. They just made up numbers to fit what they hoped to be true.
An adviser said “I don’t think there was one person who saw this coming.”
You are telling me that not one person in the room thought they could lose? It really is a good thing that these people didn’t have to decide whether to send us to war. Lastly, they never even wrote a concession speech. You always write a victory speech and a concession speech because you don’t want to tempt fate. I don’t think Mitt Romney ever thought there was something in this world he could not buy.
CNN just posted on their website an article titled “Is Obama ‘The Wrong Kind Of Christian“. Now you can read this crap for yourself, but it makes me wonder what world I am living in.
We have one candidate who tells us that he won’t impose his religious views on the people, and then another candidate who tells us that his faith leads him to every decision. Romney is so devout that he has never had a sip of alcohol or coffee, was a pastor in the church for ten years, went on a mission to spread the ‘Book of Mormon’ to get out of serving in Vietnam, gives millions of dollars a year to the church, and yet somehow his religion has become taboo to speak about.
I have to wonder if Mitt Romney’s middle name was Hussein, or if his skin was a little darker that he might be getting a few more questions about being so involved in his faith? Next time you hear Mitt Romney decry the outrage of gay marriage based on his beliefs and the beliefs of “the creator”, maybe you should read up on what else he believes in. If the media wants to have this debate, let’s have it. I want the moderator tonight to ask if Mitt is wearing his magic underwear?
In Mitt Romney’s America, women are able to work as long as they accept less pay for the same job. However, that woman better be able to get home and have dinner on the table by 5:00 PM. Mitt will not stand for a woman not having dinner on the table when her man walks in the door!
I can’t believe in 2012 a candidate for President goes on TV in a debate and says this crap. Let alone insulting every single parent over and over again while standing on the stage with THE PRESIDENT who is the product of a single parent household.
It also takes some guts for Romney to keep talking about his father being an immigrant from Mexico in answering the question on immigration. Romney’s grandfather went to Mexico to avoid US law that banned polygamy. That is why George Romney (Mitt’s father) was born in Mexico. Since his dad was born to two US citizens, he was in fact an American citizen at birth.
