So now the race is between Romney and Pelosi? Well lookie lookie...the righties are trying to muddy the issue anyway they can.
From advocating the failed trickle down policies...to making foolish simplistic comparative choices about voting for the rich guy or the other rich guy....I feel sorry for you righties....clearly the Monroe educational system has failed many.
Consider that Republican Herbert Hoover was the President in charge when the stock market crashed and the great depression took hold.
Herbert Hoover's presidential philosophy was based on voluntary cooperation and business self-regulation. Hoover believed that Americans would always answer the call for contributions to support local charity organizations and national groups such as the American Red Cross. He strongly believed that federal involvement in aiding the needy would stifle individual donations and lead to the dismantling of the nation's many charitable organizations.
Further, his firm belief in American individualism blinded him to the necessity for governmental intervention in even the most dire of circumstances.http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/americanexperience/features/biography/presidents-hoover/
Those failed Republican policies didn't work then and are just as ludicrous today.
It would behoove you right-wingers to educate yourselves before continuing to display your ignorance, http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/money-power-wall-street/
LOL @ the MT member touting his business acumen....although one missing fact is that his business failed.
But the subject ought to really be about Romney....he's hiding something or else he'd listen to his fellow Republicans about producing his tax returns...full transparency should be required of Presidential candidates.
The Republican presidential candidate dispatched his five adult sons onto a late night television show where they jokingly told stories of their father's pranks in an effort to humanise the former businessman who critics accuse of being boring.
But the light-hearted anecdotes carried an uncomfortable echo of earlier allegations that Mr Romney had been a bully while at prep school and has a long history of uncaring behaviour.
Matt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor's second son, told how his father would present his children with a stick of butter, telling them "it's so rotten you have to smell it". When they leaned down he would gleefully shove their faces into the plate.
Mr Romney apparently repeated the trick recently with one of his grandsons, pushing the shocked child's head into a platter of whipped cream.
But don't you dare play a prank on Mittens.
Josh Romney told how he once ambushed his father in a darkened basement as Mr Romney groped for the light switch.
The startled private equity boss responded by tackling him to the ground and wrestling him on the floor.
"He does like pranks but he doesn't like to get pranked. We've learned that the hard way," Josh said. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/mitt-romney/9347495/US-election-2012-Mitt-Romney-pushed-sons-faces-into-plates-of-butter.html
Let's see if I got this straight.
1. Mittens and his gang of butt buddies attacked and held down a gay student and used scissors to cut his hair.
2. Later in life, after Mittens got married, he tied the family dog to the roof of the car and drove for several hours when they went on vacation.
3. The big "man" bullied his kids.
4. The big"man" bullies his grandsons.
5. What money he didn't inherit from his dad he got by being a corporate raider and closing factories a businesses while sending thousands of jobs overseas.
6. As governor he trashed the Massachusetts economy and sent jobs to India and Mexico.
7. He lies whenever he opens his mouth about almost any subject and does it without any thought or remorse.
8. He's a creepy little XXXX that doesn't care about anyone that he deems 'below' him
That sounds like he has many of the qualifications to be a good rethuglican.http://bearssoapbox.over-blog.com/article-romney-bullied-his-sons-and-grandsons-too-107322079.html
