      Fred – Thx for sharing all of these quite interesting links, although some are so bizarre I can’t believe these people actually exist!

        Fred – Thanks for the links. One of the comments about The teahidst in NM who wants a “real American” said if you are not white-christian you’re not a real American. Amen to that, I would only add and Republican.

    Many thanks to The Onion, on behalf of a sane voting public.

    I see 3 mentally ill people there.

    2 far right religious extremists.

    1 extremely cruel and heartless individual, cruelty to that degree is not normal. There’s some mental thing going on when you can’t feel compassion, ever.

    As you guys know, just the way he made his fortune to start:

    In 1992, Mitt Romney was running Bain Capital, a private equity firm. Bain Capital bought American Pad & Paper Co. (Ampad) for $5 million.

    Over the next several years Romney’s firm bled the company dry. Hundreds of workers lost their jobs. Stockholders were left with worthless shares. Creditors and vendors were paid less than 50 cents on the dollar. While they were exploiting the company, Romney’s firm charged Ampad millions of dollars in “management fees.” In all, Romney and his investors reaped more than $100 million dollars from the deal.

    And not to mention the poor helpless dog on the roof of his car for an 18 hours drive (as an animal lover, I’ll never get over that one)

    They’re all extremely dangerous.

      Mitt’s father, George Romney, had much more class and savvy in life than this guy. George Romney wheeled and dealed in business, but he also supported the civil rights movement in the ’60s (although his church hadn’t quite reached that consensus, “back in the day”).

      He wasn’t much of a political campaigner, though – much like his son.

      100% CO-SIGN, and that is why NONE of them will EVER smell the leather in the Oval Office. It’s the media circus that fuels these clowns. 2In 012 , they will fold up the tent and go home.

    Rev. Al is hot tonight! Of the Republican congresspeople who will not hold townhalls during their recess, one is this person from North Carolina. By the looks of her photo, she could be on the next cover of Newsweek.

      I would be willing to bet that the President has been working behind the scenes to secure those weapons as he is always five steps ahead of everyone else.

        Jackie 4 Obama, I will bet with you on this one. We know our President. That would be a discussion he would have had in this entire mix, and surely a deep concern. We are very blessed to have this wondeerful man as our 44th President of the United States. We will with grace get him re-elected in 2012. HZ

    GUYS ITS TIME TO TWEET REV AL LOTS OF THANK U TWEETS. He Said on National tele that blacks only get to be invited on TV by the Media if only they are willing to ATTACK PBO. He said it to Rep Satan Sandwich’s Face 😆 and then the attacker claims to be speaking for all Blacks. Love u Rev Al.

      I missed that, but I would have cheered that truth being exposed. That is exactly what is going on. I’ve noticed it for a long, long time. It’s really ugly.

        I saw that too. I liked the way he said that on the outset to the CBC Chairman to head off what he might say and to basically let him know that they can’t bring that on his show unchallenged. Cleaver was very mild with Rev. Al, unlike when some CBC members are on other shows. I tell you though, these Clinton supporters are not to be trusted. All the folks that the President trusts are scattered throughout his administration. It seems like the only Dems called on MSM are Clinton folks. It’s going to be a long long year. But I do know the President is aware of everything though.

        • August 24, 2011 at 7:44 pm

          He’s been aware of it since he was a Senator and probably even before. PBO knows people and he knows the history of many of these cliques in DC and elsewhere. That’s why he went around them to get the nomination.

    I saw that too. It was so on point. Love Al. Will send him some thanks also.
