A Lesson For Liberals To Learn

By now, you may have heard about the Left’s latest attack on women.  The short story is that a Democrat strategist said Ann Romney has “never worked a day in her life”, despite the fact that she beat cancer and raised 5 children.  It’s gotten so bad that even David Axelrod has distanced himself from what she said.

The strategist in question is Hilary Rosen, and she wasted little time in backtracking her statement.  Here it is from CNN.com.  One thing she said that stuck out to me was this:

Spare me the faux anger from the right who view the issue of women’s rights and advancement as a way to score political points. When it comes to supporting policies that would actually help women, their silence has been deafening. I don’t need lectures from the RNC on supporting women and fighting to increase opportunities for women; I’ve been doing it my whole career.

Here’s what I think Hilary doesn’t realize:  The anger she faced on Twitter and in email last night was not from the “RNC”.  It was from normal, hard working Americans who, themselves, don’t have much good to say about the RNC.  Liberals don’t seem to realize that just because people vote against progressive policies, it doesn’t mean that they’re in agreement with the Republican Elites.  (or whatever you’d like to call the RNC)

I think Liberals (and even Republicans) would do well to realize that the political landscape is changing, and what she was dealing with last night was Americans, not just some arm of a political party.

Thanks to Twitter, Facebook, and various other tools on the Internet, you have people participating in political discussions who used to be part of the “silent majority”.  Hilary Rosen is fooling herself, if she thinks that she only risks the ire of the Republican National Committee.

Mitt Romney (Really) Doesn’t Have That Much Money

Romney’s “2 Cadillacs” and “my friends own NASCAR teams” stories might seem like old news now, but if he gets the GOP’s nod, you can bet that stories about his wealth will begin to circulate again in preparation for this fall’s election.  Since 80% of Conservatives seem to think he’s going to win the nomination (and he has the largest amount of delegates), this piece will focus on some the criticisms about Romney’s wealth.

Romney Doesn’t really have that much money.

As unbelievable as that statement sounds, it’s very much true.  Mitt Romney is said to be worth anywhere between $190-$250 Million.  And as hard as it is to believe, that’s just not very much dough.

To put it in perspective, let’s look at how much money some other famous people happen to be worth.

1.  Peyton Manning has a net worth of $115 Million (about half of what Romney is said to be worth)

2.  Justin Bieber has made $105 Million in just about the same amount of  time it takes to complete high school.

3.  Gossip blogger, Perez Hilton is worth $30 Million.  Let that sink in for a minute…  And if you don’t know who Perez Hilton is, consider yourself blessed.

4.  Michael Bloomberg, a lowly mayor (even if he is mayor of the USA’s largest city), is worth $19 Billion (with a “B”).  So if politicians aren’t supposed to be wealthy, somebody should let him know.

5.  But to put things into even better perspective, Allen Iverson has made (and spent) about $200 Million between his NBA salary and his Reebok endorsements.  So, if a basketball player is allowed to earn, in fourteen years, what Mitt Romney has earned over the course of his 65 year lifetime, then there seems to be little reason to begrudge the former governor for buying a couple of Cadillacs.  And if it makes you feel any better, you should know that Allen Iverson’s $400,000 Lamborghini is worth about 8 of what Mrs. Romney’s Cadillac’s are believed to have cost.

And this is just “classic Democrats”.  Remember when Barack Obama was a candidate for the highest office in the land?  As a candidate, he considered George W. Bush’s debt of $4 Trillion to be “unpatriotic”, a debt that was amassed over 8 years.  But when President Obama racked up $4 Trillion of debt in only three years, he decided to have Tom Hanks narrate a documentary talking about how heroic our current president is.  Democrats will hammer Republicans for their sins, then commit the SAME sin, only twice as worse, and then applaud themselves.  And on top of that, they get the media to tell everybody that they’re doing a good job.  …for doing the SAME thing they just hammered Republicans for.

This is the same party who ran the richest president of all time, John F. Kennedy.  JFK was said to be worth $1 Billion (again, with a “B”), and his successor, Lyndon Johnson, was also said to be worth $98 Million.  These figures were published on MSNBC’s website, of all places, and they were adjusted for 2010 dollars.  But again, they’ll have you believe that Mitt Romney, and by extension, the Republican Party are both out of touch.  Furthermore, did you know that  William Jefferson Clinton is said to be worth $38 Million?  And last but not least, Jane Harman, a Democrat congresswoman from California who recently resigned, is said be worth between $150 Million and $430 Million.  From the looks of things, Democrats only think that being a rich politician is bad if it’s a REPUBLICAN who is the rich politician.

The hypocrisy is not only staggering, but it needs to be pointed out on a daily basis, if Republicans ever want to dispel the meme that they are all out-of-touch and 1 percenters.

So in a world where basketball players and teenage kids have earned as much (or half as much) as Mitt Romney has, and in a world where Liberal politicians can easily outspend him, it’s hard to see the outrage over Romney’s wealth as being anything genuine.  Romney’s real crime isn’t that he’s amassed money, it’s that he’s been unable to control the narrative.

Proof That Romney Is Willing To Say ANYTHING To Get Elected


Willard Romney won six out of ten states last night, but you have to wonder how many voters saw this video before casting their ballots.  In it, he brags about how he was able to secure “over $410 Million” from the federal government to help fund the 2002 Winter Olympics.  What’s odd is that he even talks about how helpful it is to have people inside Washington to manipulate the system and get you money.

“I’ve learned from my Olympic experience that if you have people that really understand how Washington works and have personal associations there, you can get money to help build economic development opportunities.”  -Mitt Romney

To be honest… It kind of sounds like he describes a “Washington insider”.  And it sounds like he thinks that “Washington insiders” are good people to have around.  Later in the video, he even brags about how he got an extra million dollars from the Department Of Education.  When discussing it, he grins and describes it as using “creativity”.

This is all somewhat odd, considering that Mitt Romney has placed so much emphasis on the fact that he’s “not a Washington insider”.  But it sounds like when he was vying to be governor of Massachusetts, he was absolutely willing to employ the talents of just such insiders.

Romney has had a hard time convincing Conservative voters that he’s the candidate that they’re looking for, and examples like this might be why.

Surprising Video: Mitt Attacks Someone For Flip Flops


Before gaining his own reputation as a “flip flopper”, Mitt Romney was calling out John Kerry for being one, himself.  Pot, meet Kettle in this week’s “surprising video”.

For someone who seems to know so much about accusing people of flip flopping, it seems surprising that Mitt has let himself be strung up by this very same tactic, himself.  What do ya’ll think?  Is this irony?  Poetic justice?  Or is Mitt just not very good at dealing with his own PR?

As always, you can let us know in the comments below or Facebook.

Mitt Squirms When Pressured About Romney Care


In case you missed it, this is the Bret Baier interview with Romney that everyone’s been talking about.  Bret asks Mitt about possible similarities between Obama Care and Romney Care, and oh, does Willard squirm.  Check it out, check-it-outers:

I’ll tell you two things I learned from this video.

One:  Romney was hoping the interview would be a bunch of softballs, and a circuit in his (robot) brain shorted out when he was thrown a curve ball.
Two:  Now that Newt is Romney’s greatest threat, Mitt’s gonna start throwing him under the bus like he used to do Perry. (and Huckabee the last go-round)

What do you guys think?  Did Willard quirm?  Did that robot brain seize up?  Or did he handle himself well?  And is he going to be able to bully Newt around the same way he used to do Perry?

Let us know your thoughts on Facebook or in the comments below.  This primary ain’t over yet, folks.  Not by a long shot.

John Thune To Support Mitt Romney

In the continual march of “inevitability”, Mitt Romney picks up another big name endorsement.  Sometime today, Senator John Thune (R-SD) is expected to announce his support of presidential hopeful Mitt Romney.  The following excerpt is from DesMoinesRegister.com.

“Mitt Romney has shown throughout his life in the private sector, as leader of the Olympics, as governor, and in this campaign that he will not back down from difficult challenges. His plans to revitalize the private sector and restore our country’s fiscal health are drawn from his 25 year career as a conservative businessman.”  -Sen John Thune

Is Mitt the “inevitable” candidate?  Or do these endorsements, ultimately, amount to nothing?  Let us know what you think in the comments below.
