      If he actually said that Trump is a very sick man.I hope for the sake of his soul that he was misquoted. If not, he should use some of his money to see a psychiatrist.

      amk for obama, that says it all right there. Trump is not a racists, it’s just something fishy when some black guy name Obama does better than a rich white guy like me.

      CAN’T WAIT!

      I suspect Willard knows this, too. I expect him to be fully medicated during the debates.

        Some quotes from this article:

        He said he has “tremendous respect” for both men. But Obama, said Barthwell, made a more striking impression.

        “It’s Harvard Law School, so you’re not surprised if someone ends up doing something impressive. But even there, it was clear he was brilliant,” Barthwell said of Obama.

        Within the tradition- steeped, competitive culture of Cranbrook, the prestigious boarding school in Bloomfield Hills, Mich., Barthwell said Romney, while clearly smart, was far from a standout.

        “Mitt was not particularly popular. He was very, very ordinary. He was an average Cranbrook student,” said Barthwell, 64.

        “He was not an athlete, he was not a student leader, he was not a scholar. The thing that separated Mitt there was that his father was the governor of Michigan.”

          Brilliant. Thanks 57andfemale!

          You can see this in a lot of these legacy frat babies like Willard, Dubya and Trump. They are completely average (or worse) in every way and if they didn’t have the fathers and privilege they have, they wouldn’t have amounted to anything. Willard and Dubya had everything handed to them and they still want more just by virtue of who they happen to have been born as. They are both low IQ screw-up brats, chickenhawk warmongers, incurious about the world, unimaginative businessmen without rationale as to why they should be/should have been president — except that it’s “their turn.” Look how they respond to any type of perceived slight to their ego — like petulant, spoiled, adolescent brats and bullies.

          No wonder they are puzzled, angered, and jealous of true brilliance like PBO possesses. It totally craps on their whole idiotic worldview.

            I have a feeling this isn’t the kind of supportive comment Romney’s people were looking for, to counter the reports of his bullying and assault of a young boy while at prep school.

            I think it’s the best description of Bush and Romney I ever saw

        Either medicated or absent. Bet he’s trying to find a way out of any debates altogether. He can’t even conduct a softball interview without pouring sweat. He’s probably going to need a Depends for a debate.

      I’m really sick of this party telling our duly elected POTUS to “sit down and shut up.” Is PBO supposed to sit like a good little boy with his hands folded in his lap while Mittens lies and lies and whose policies will plunge this country into oblivion?

      Bain is the reason to vote for you but attacking Bain is ‘personal’?!?!?! Sneering that “even Jimmy Carter would have given that order” isn’t a personal attack?!?!?!

      What an unmitigated ass this guy is. He accuses the president of everything in the book and then recoils when his own record is questioned. The president is never personal. He just states the facts.

    Trump can’t help himself

    By Steve Benen


    Just hours before joining Mitt Romney at a campaign fundraising event in Nevada, Donald Trump decided to spend even more time spewing nonsense about his favorite conspiracy theory.
    Leaders — those with character and courage, who command respect — are supposed to know better. But Romney has a list of priorities, and demonstrating leadership isn’t on it.

    Incidentally, Igor Volsky noted that in October, when Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) partnered with right-wing pastor Robert Jeffress, Romney demanded that Perry “repudiate” him. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), a leading Romney surrogate, added that for a national candidate to stand with a offensive character was “beneath the office of president of the United States.”

    One wonders if Romney thinks he’ll look presidential in Las Vegas tonight.

      Perhaps we should just say what it is…Romney is a birther too….

      on one hand he says that he is not a birther/but then on the hand he won’t condemn birtherism…and has placed a big time birther FRONT AND CENTER in his campaign

      I use that line all the time….only I change the word ” dead ” to ” dumb “

    Just saw this on twitter.

      • May 29, 2012 at 3:13 pm

        further on this in the same thread:


        Collapse Expand Yes, I heard Mr. Joe Madison (the Black Eagle) talking about that this morning. He participated in a round-table event this past weekend (I believe it was some gathering of black trade union workers not sure) and members of the CBC spoke candidly about the tactics of the Rethuglicans, including them not allocating money for the plumbing to be upgraded at the First Family’s living quarters. Joe mentioned he would play this entire round-table talk some time this week.

      The Obama family has put up with a lot. And they are accused of spending taxpayer dollars for their private use? After working and winning the Presidency fair and square, and then putting up with mind-numbing stupidity and hate-filled nonsense, you know they have to really love this country to endure four more years of this. This story makes my heart hurt. This country better come through for them.

    TWO WISCONSIN STATIONS DEVOTE MORE AIRTIME TO SCOTT WALKER SUPPORTERS | As the recall election of Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI) nears, a media group is arguing that certain Wisconsin radio stations devote a disproportionate amount of air time to Walker’s fans, while effectively silencing supporters of Tom Barett, his opponent. The Media Action Center released a letter today saying that Wisconsin Recall radio coverage was extremely tilted toward Walker on two different stations — WISN and WTMJ, which are owned by the right-leaning media company Clear Channel. In one day alone, the group found that anti-Barret, pro-Walker rhetoric took up 49 minutes, while the reverse had only two minutes of airtime. The numbers were equally drastic for pro-Democratic verus anti-Democratic coverage. The Media Action Center sent their letter to the FCC, arguing that the stations are violating the Zapple Doctrine, which says stations must give equal amounts of free promotion to every candidate in the 60 days leading up to the election.

    Clear Channel = Bain Got it.
