One thought on “Fighting back

  1. “What are you going to do to strengthen Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid without cutting benefits?”

    “I’m not going to raise taxes. That’s my answer.”

    That’s not just Mitt’s answer, it’s the GOP answer, no matter the question. “What are you going to do about our dependence on foreign oil?” “What are you going to do about global warming?” “How will you encourage peace in the Middle East?” “What about the homeless and jobless in our country?” “Who is going to win the World Series?” “What did you have for breakfast?”

    “I’m not going to raise taxes.”

    From the AP story:

    Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney faced a rowdy crowd at the Iowa State Fair Thursday, with people interrupting his answers to chant “Wall Street greed” and him snapping “corporations are people, my friend.” […]

    “There was a time when we didn’t go after people for their success,” Romney said. (Apparently what the Mittster means by “going after people” is taxing them.)

    “If you don’t like my answer, you can vote for someone else,” he added.

    Finally, Mittens says something sensible. And I will be voting for someone else. I may not know who that person is yet, but I know that much. I’m not sure he picked up many other votes in Iowa with his 30-year-old boilerplate responses and bullshit applause lines.

    For as much as the GOP accuses Democrats of being out of touch with “average” Americans, (or “regular” Americans, or “real” or “everyday” or however the Oligarchy is referring to nonmembers these days), it’s stunning that your so-called GOP frontrunner thinks he’s going to make any headway by telling people that “corporations are people.” But please, Mitt, keep telling the Great Unwashed that their street is connected to Wall Street.

    How does a party that routinely treats the president of the United States like its bitch have such a hard time coming up with even one decent candidate? No wonder shitheads like Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich look at the field and see opportunity.
