Most of the time, Politico is harmless fun but today they undertook actively trying to undermine a Presidential election and tnfriend is going to call them out on it. Today's theme is Politico is ABLAZE and ought to be ASHAMED and Obama's a liar.
The day starts with the Boston branch of the NY Times running a story that Mitt Romney was lying about his time at Bain Capital that factcheck.org had debunked last week when the socialist over at Mother Jones ran the same story. Oh and the liars at the Globe, forgot to mention, they stole the story from Mother Jones. The Romney campaign refuted the story; saying once again Romney was a stockholder while the partnership that took over Bain in 1999 completed the legalities of the takeover. Bain agreed with Romney and sent to Fortune definitive proof that Romney left Bain as an active partner in 1999. Seriously, Politico, the Boston Globe and the NY Times should all print retractions, offer public apologies to Romney and suspend every reporter and editor involved in jumping the gun. The documents refuting the story were clearly available had the Globe or Politico asked Bain for them. It's gut check time Politico and Times Company; you either believe you have a duty to the public or you don't. You either believe you have a responsibility to the truth or you don't. As Rick Perry would say, "we don't need a complicated analysis here". Obama is a liar and Politico set its integrity on fire.
Bill Burton, in a desparate attempt to prove Priorities USA is not wasting donors money; put a poll in the field to show the attacks by Priorities USA were working and found out 63% of Americans don't give a crap. Just guessing here, but I bet the 37% who do, were voting for Obama anyway. Yes, Obama donors, you idiots, Bill Burton is wasting your money. Oh and 80% of Americans don't care Mitt is wealthy. Guessing the 20% that do are a subset of the 37% who are voting Obama anyway. NEWS FLASH to POLITICO: Americans care about their money not Mitt's and not how he made it. Just some friendly advice if you dream of becoming a news organization when you grow up. Obama is a liar and Politico set its integrity on fire.
Paul Ryan calls the Obama Administration sad. He could add pathetic. Really, the easiest job in Washington is the Obama Administration's fact checker. That guy truly gets paid for nothing. Hardest, I am going with Stephie Cutter; she has to keep all the lies consistent. I wonder if sending out Ryan is an indication he is Mitt's choice. Obama is a liar and Politico set its integrity on fire.
Now on to what all this was about, Simon says that Romney had the guts to show up at the NAACP (unlike BO) and to quote Mick Foley the testicular fortitude to speak his mind. Through boos, giggles, cheers and a standing ovation, Romney calmly explained to his audience how democrats had kept all Americans including African Americans down with their idiocy and what he would do to change it. Scant minutes after Romney was through, Ben Jealous said Romney's message of rising African Americans out of poverty and despair wasn't consistent with the goals of the NAACP. I couldn't make this up if I tried. Honestly, I believe the Obama campaign knew Romney killed it; to keep that from being the lead story, cooked up this faux Bain controversy. Obama is a liar and Politico set its integrity on fire.
Warren Buffett tells the truth; the economy has ground to a halt and she ain't re-firing. Obama is a liar and Politico set its integrity on fire.
DKos polling firm PPP has Obama up 6 in Wisconsin. Given, the house effect of +5 Democrat in PPP polling results, we can say Romney is up 49/45 in a state Obama can't lose. Obama is a liar and Politico set its integrity on fire.
Democrats are avoiding Obama like he has the cooties. Who could blame them? Obama is a liar and Politico set its integrity on fire.
Obama used federal taxpayer money to outsource jobs overseas and strangely nearly all the green energy stimulus money ended up in the hands of Obama campaign bundlers and financiers. Oh wait a minute, Mitt Romney turning over control of Bain when he said he did is a bigger story than Obama handing out taxpayer money as graft. Obama is a liar and Politico set its integrity on fire.
Dodd-Frank is still learning to crawl. Since it has already broken the back of the American economy, I'd sure hate to see this monstrosity get up and walk. Let's elect Mitt Romney and throw Harry's friends out of office and repeal this idiotic job killer, shall we? Obama is a liar and Politico set its integrity on fire.
Mitch McConnell gave Harry Reid the hammer - shouldn't be surprised he is using it. Seriously, House Republicans said they felt like they got hit by a bus with Kentucky plates; I don't think it was Rand Paul's bus. I'll be sending Bob Corker a letter in essence saying get off Mitch's bus or I'll be voting to throw him off. His choice, I could care less either way. I encourage all my fellow Tennesseans to join me. Obama is a liar and Politico set its integrity on fire.
Mitt Romney ad: Obama's a liar.
Obama is a liar and Politico set its integrity on fire. I am tnfriend and I approve of this message. I read Politico, you don't have to.
