United We Stand


I found this video to be inspirational, moving, and patriotic.

WOOHOO!! Mitt won Michigan--now it’s off to Nevada and South Carolina!!

I’ve been a little bit out of the loop lately, it’s been especially busy down at the embryonic stem cell research factory lately. We’re trying to use stem cells to grow a conscience for Republicans who still believe that George Bush is doing a good job in spite of the overwhelming evidence to the contrary; this is proving to be the most intractable problem we’ve ever faced. Every time we try, we come up with a perfect genetic copy of Rush Limbaugh’s ass. Curious indeed, but we’ll keep working on it.

Anyhoo…how about our boy Mitt? He finally won the gold medal all his adoring legions were praying for (when they weren’t busy praying for a plague of angry, rabid locusts to descend upon the McCain and Huckabee camps).

But it’s not just that Mitt won that is most exciting for his supporters, it’s HOW he won. Taking a page from Bush’s playbook, Mitt has chosen to bank on the stupidity of the Republican electorate. Quite simply, he lied---and the people loved it!! Republicans, it seems, have an incredible propensity to ignore what they know in their gut about a person, and choose instead to accept statements they know not to be true, but which are spoken in a confident, reassuring way. A couple of weeks ago Mitt was playing the part of a small government conservative, but in Michigan he morphed into a big government economic liberal, backing a $100 billion bailout for the auto industry…the people of Michigan forgot about the old Mitt, they loved the new one! He denounced the increase of the corporate CAFE standards last week in Michigan, completely at odds with his previous statements, but once again, Michiganders ignored Mitt’s past statements and focused on the new Mitt. Forget his past support in gay rights, the new Mitt says that he despises gays, and Republicans love it! Ignore my past support of abortion rights, says Mitt, focus instead on my new position against those same rights. Republicans dutifully comply! Pay no attention to his past record in Massachusetts where he increased taxes and fees by a total of $700 million, he says that he’s a committed tax cutter, and people simply accept it! He asks that we ignore his history of slashing jobs as a corporate raider at Bain Capital, focus instead on his re-invention as a supporter of job growth…and we do! He’s found the formula for success; simple prevarication. Given that this is at the core of the man, his stock in trade so to speak, he seems at this point to be a shoo-in for the nomination!

It’s has been pointed out repeatedly that Mitt has been on both sides of nearly every major issue. Rational people might see this as a liability, but many Republicans (principally of those who still support Bush, one presumes) don’t see it that way. Rather than focus on his hyper-aggressive flip flopping, they dutifully do what Mitt asks and focus on his latest incarnation. Mitt’s campaign seems predicated on the belief that most Republicans are either stupid enough or have poor powers of recollection (ideally both) to put him over the top. So far it seems to be working. Go Mitt!

Yes, you have been out of the loop lately; quite frankly, you're still out of the loop.

This is Mitt's second gold.

You and your party aren't the only ones interested in stem cell research. Just do a quick search on this blog.......it's easy, just type "stem cell" or something and you'll see that Mitt has supported stem cell research. Just not embryonic stem cell research.

Romney didn't raise any taxes in Massachusetts. He raised certain fees that were outdated.....for example, some businesses had to pay more to have their advertisements on the highways. None of the fees were broad-based.

Mitt proposed the Republican way in revitalizing the economy in Michigan.........by giving money back to the people. It's called an investment. Democrats prefer to give incentives for people to stay out of work.

You've been educated by the MSM, so I can hardly blame you for calling Mitt a flip-flopper. The only issue that Mitt has truly made a reversal is about abortion. You either believe his conversion story, or you don't......personally, I don't care; in fact, I'm glad he made the switch.

I recommend getting in the loop before you decide to spew nonsense on our blog in the future =)

I'm Waiting to vote for Mitt in Florida, but I can't waint any longer. I'm going to go ahead an use their early voting options here. I suggest that anyone else who really has the bug to vote, go ahead and just do it now. See your local election clerk.

Great video!!!

"anonymous"

If I created such a hateful collage of garbage that others might see, I would remain anonymous as well. Not atypical, however, for the spineless and sunbstanceless liberal, "progressives" that occupy our great country in alarmingly increasing numbers.
Obviously you do not listen to the "progressive" candidates in the Democratic Party or you would know how they not only have lied to their "supporters" these many years but their supporters are so mesmerized by their promises that they actually continue to believe them and support them even today. Your message is one of jealousy and envy, a hidden desire to have what others have but the lack of energy, enthusiasm or motivation to go out and get it for yourself through dedication and hard work. You would rather take it from them. Don't even mention the word "lie" in the same sentence with Hilary Clinton - her life is full of it - too much to mention.
The sad thing is that one day you will wake up to an America that has lost its strength and its moral compass and wonder where the Mitt Romneys of the Republican party are - "when will they save me."
Because your verbal, disrespectful and empty rantings indicate beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are not capable of saving yourself or anyone else for that matter.

I hope the hard working and serious minded conservatives have coalesced by then with like minded people and have the opportunity to thumb their noses at those who piled on the hateful vitriol through the decades and send a message to "do it yourself".You had better be careful what you wish for when you say the horrible things that you say - you just might get it. The only problem is that the successful republicans will always bail out the "progressive" piglets suckling from the teet of the hard working conservatives.

In the meantime, we can all hope that Mitt Romney is our John Galt (had time in your hateful life to learn about him?) Get out of my country you big dope.
