I just found out that the person who called Mitt Romney a “poopy-head” was Grover Norquist. I have heard the recording, “Romney is a poopy-head,” many times while listening to Ed Schultz, Stephanie Miller, Randi Rhodes and a few others on progressive talk radio, but did not know that was Norquist…. until yesterday. I have hardly been able to stop laughing and/or smiling. I simply can NOT believe that this man, presently one of the most powerful American lobbyists for the Republican Party, actually called Mitt Romney a name that sounds like something a 6-year old would say. What WAS he thinking?
Just playing around. I was trying out some open source software that is used to deform images. So… I deformed Romney and made an animated gif out of it! I imagine that Romney has probably made this face twice very recently. The first time is when Cristie praised Obama. And the second is when NYC Mayor Bloomberg announced his endorsement for Obama.
UPDATE: November 8th, 2012
Now this is Romney’s face after he lost to Obama.
“At a press conference in Toledo, Bob King, President of the United Automobile Workers (UAW), will announce that his union and Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) have filed a formal complaint with the US Office of Government Ethics in Washington stating that Gov. Romney improperly hid a profit of $15.3 million to $115.0 million in Ann Romney’s so-called “blind” trust.”
When I heard that portion of the ad put out by the Romney team, I truly thought I was going to wet my pants from laughing so hard. Who was Romney going announce next as his ally… Daddy Warbucks? Come on, now… Lee Iacocca??? I haven’t heard that name in the news for several years now. That is a name associated with the era. Come ON Mittens. Iacocca is so passé. At least pick some swag from this decade.
(Before I go any further I have to state my disclaimer: Lee Iacocca is NOT dead. He is now 88.)
Unless you have been hiding under a rock, you are quite aware of the presidential election going on between incumbent President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney. Depending upon which news channel you are watching, the polls outcome will vary. I do want to briefly mention, though, that the polls after the third debate are unsettling…. For the most part in that debate, Romney sat back on his laurels and agreed a lot of what Obama has been doing with foreign policies. Romney was a “yes sir, no sir” debater that night. Then to see some polls favor Romney after this debate? Something smells fishy.
I have been watching this spider live and grow right outside one of our windows under our 24/7 outdoor light. I first saw this Black and Yellow Garden Spider back in August (maybe a little before that??) and have since peek to check on it from time to time. Make sure she’s in the center of her web. It really has been fascinating. She’s close to twice as large now compared to back in August. I have not seen her pounce nor do anything cool like that with her meal. But she did relocate her home – and lost a leg.
In the SL Tribune Editorial published Friday, the Tribune acknowledged that Romney had become the “state’s adopted son” after rescuing the Olympics from sure failure. That was the Mitt Romney that they had grown to know and love.
Just having some fun. There is a clean copy of Nurse Romney-Ratched at the bottom if you want to make your own captions. Or share your captions in the comments.
Perez, who has campaigned for President Obama in the past, mocks sympathy for Romney, joking that the election would be “in the bag” if Romney was a “lesbian Latina.” “Unfortunately for you Mitt, you were cursed with the hard-knock life of growing as up the son of a wealthy governor and auto executive,” Perez says.
Best to just watch it. I love Rosie.

I don’t know who started this nor how they even came up with this idea, but I’m sure glad they did. I doubt these reviews will stay on Amazon for very long, so better check them out while you can. I have copied the text from some of my favorites, though.
Ha! Saw this today making it’s round on the virtual waves. Romika is a shoe company out of Germany.
After the debate last week, the award of lying should go to Mitt Romney. Hands down he has perfected the art of lying and appearing to be sincere – although I noticed a few facial expressions that gave him away a few times. The style of debating that Romney blasted at President Obama is an actual technique for debating. It is called the Gish Gallop.
According to Rational Wiki, Gish Gallop is the debating technique of drowning the opponent in such a torrent of half-truths, lies, and straw-man arguments that the opponent cannot possibly answer every falsehood in real time.
Oh, I wish I knew who lives here because I would love to shake their hand. Well, at least email them and thank them since I’m not going to travel where ever they are. And I can tell you from the photos that this home is not in New Mexico… it has something we don’t. Grass.
Anyway, enjoy. Very very creative and I think this scene should magically appear on the Romney lawn on Halloween. Yes?
As we all know, The Onion is a site which only writes comedy which is typically satirical in nature, and will include any and every topic in the news. Politics, sports, entertainment, you name it, they’ll write it. Sometimes, though, an article may be so well written by including the facts of a newsworthy event that sometimes it is difficult to tell if it is actual or satire. In fact, last February, Republican House Rep. John Fleming of Louisiana thought an article was real that was posted to the Onion’s website on May 18, 2011 that headlined, “Planned Parenthood Opens $8 Billion Abortionplex.” Fleming went on a rant on his Facebook page – until someone informed him that the Onion is farce. He looked like a complete fool. Honestly, that article was too satirical to have been confused with reality. Fleming so wanted it to be true that he thought it was.
As are most people who are Obama supporters or anti-Romney supporters, last night was a shock for all of us. Many thought his performance was spot on, and I saw him trying to maintain the high level of integrity he possesses by refusing to lower himself to Romney’s level.
However, they are not running for president of the Debate Club and I wish Obama had stepped out of his normal respectable self and just blasted Romney with his own shit. I have been stewing over this debate ever since last night. Listened to talk radio, the news, and have been absorbed with trying to define what happened last night. I have even read through most of the transcript several times. There does appear to be a point that President Obama encountered relatively early on that he was not expecting – and that has never happened to this degree in history….
During the day I listen to progressive talk radio. This afternoon on one of the shows, and I’m actually not sure which one as they’ve been having a lot of guest hosts lately. Ed Shultz, Tom Hartman… One of those show. Not Randi Rhodes nor Stephanie Miller – I know their voices and shows very well. I was also driving at this time so was only half paying attention until people started calling in. Anyway, getting off track here. The host was taking phone calls of questions people would like to ask either Romney or Obama. There were a lot of great questions, and some were rather stupid. Like the idgit that wanted to ask Obama why he hasn’t lived up to his promise to his Kenyan family to take care of them. And something else about the Kenyan village his father is from… I don’t recall. That caller was a whack job.
The more I read and hear what Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has to say about Romney, the more I like this guy. But let me tell you – I wouldn’t want to be on his bad side because Reid tells it like it is. No candy-coating, no fluff – just down and dirty. But then, Romney is the one who made his life dirty, Reid is just sharing.
Last week, Ann Romney’s plane was forced to make an emergency landing due to an electrical fire that filled the cabin with smoke. On Saturday, Mitt was quoted saying the following:
No, Ann isn’t talking to Mitt… In an interview with Radio Iowa, Ann Romney had this to say to Republicans who have been critical of the floundering Romney presidential campaign (emphasis added):
“Stop it. This is hard. You want to try it? Get in the ring,” she said. “This is hard and, you know, it’s an important thing that we’re doing right now and it’s an important election and it is time for all Americans to realize how significant this election is and how lucky we are to have someone with Mitt’s qualifications and experience and know-how to be able to have the opportunity to run this country.”
Here are some funnies, photos with captions and some more serious quotes about Romney and Ryan. It may be fun to laugh at this fool and his partner-in-crime, Paul Ryan (literally, partner-in-crime) as Mitt and Mutton really have both said some very stupid things. But we cannot forget what they have promised for this country because most of it is not good and very dangerous. Plus they both lie like a rug.
Mitt Romney’s famous last words as a Republican presidential candidate…
“There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that’s an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what…These are people who pay no income tax.”
… and then he fell on his face.
When he doesn’t know a camera’s rolling, the GOP candidate shows his disdain for half of America. The footage was taken at a private “intimate fundraiser” with “a small group of wealthy contributors” at the Boca Raton home of controversial private equity manager Marc Leder on May 17.
Romney dismissed these Americans as freeloaders who pay no taxes, who don’t assume responsibility for their lives, and who think government should take care of them. Specifically, Romney mentions that many of us do not pay “income” taxes. Until I see 12 years of Romney’s tax returns, I do not believe he has been paying income tax as well as hiding a lot of money overseas and not paying ANY taxes on that. Ohhhhhh… my blood pressure just shot up. To point a finger at the public when he needs to point it towards himself. Here is what Mitt Romney says:
