The Fiscal Cliff. Are you just as tired as I am of hearing this in the news? Boehner is making even a bigger ass out of himself than ever before. And then has the stupidity to bring in a list of demands which include the same crap that Romney carried on his presidential ticket — which the majority of the voters made clear they did NOT like.
Today Mitt Romney
talked had some turkey – a Presidential Turkey lunch that is – with President Obama. The two previous rivals for the top seat in the White House had their lunch together in a private dining room adjacent to the Oval Office.
What do you think they said to one another… or more likely, thought. Here are some funny captions which I found today on Facebook. Plus I have added a few of my own.
As expected, any Romney supporter (with heavy financing), was shocked at the final outcome from November 6th, the night President Obama retained his seat. We have all heard the whining, crying, finger-pointing, foul, and so on and so on. But there were a couple of items which stood out more than others.
We all know that Karl Rove flipped out on FOX News when they announced Obama won Ohio. The video is below if you haven’t seen it. Basically, Rove just could NOT understand what was happening, which is what I expected. Although he did have a very shocked “the sun just rose in the west” look on his face, and that is what surprised me. Even more shocking was hearing many top supporters and chiefs cry that Romney was supposed to win with a landslide. That is NOT what the polls had been showing the entire time.
All I want to say is thank goodness. It’s over. I don’t have to move to Canada now. Obama over Romney via Electoral College. Obama ahead in popular vote… but just barely. Numbers not yet final. All the news sites, major and independents, are all posting the results, so I’m not going to here. They’re not final anyway.
I’m also very happy to get Romney’s face off my TV and computer monitor. He’s been great blogging material, but he has wore out his welcome. Time to go back to regular news. I do wonder – and hope – if he’ll be audited for tax evasion….
As I learned last year, besides honoring those loved ones who have passed, some participants choose to make political statements. Just so they meet the rules of the parade which one is no one may participate in the parade if they are not either wearing make-up or a skull mask.
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.
Just finished watching the Vice Presidential debate with VP Joe Biden and Governor Paul Ryan, and overall it was pretty decent. Ryan definitely showed more maturity than Romney did last week. Ryan didn’t throw tantrums nor demand to have both the first AND last word. Overall, Ryan just “was.”
During the first half, they were running neck-in-neck. But just past the halfway point, Biden took the lead. The one main difference I saw between the two was that Biden showed passion. Passion for our country and for our people. Although I must say that I did not care for Biden’s over usage of smiling and chuckling early on. Ryan, on the other hand, was stale and did nothing more than regurgitate what we have been hearing for months now. At least he did stick to the Romney/Ryan script. LOL… what is considered their script with so many flip-flops? Whatever viewpoint has been stated the most (Law of Averages).
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.
First off, thank you Phil, aka “egg sucking pup.” This is a great video of a little girl who is more aware of the consequences of Romney as president than any of the other members in her family who are all older then she is. Her parents, her frisky grandparents, big brother, and big sis.
