Firing People for Fun & Profit

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: January 11, 2012

After winning the New Hampshire primary last night, Mitt Romney charged that “some desperate Republicans” have joined forces with President Obama “to put free enterprise on trial.” Newt Gingrich calls Romney a “vulture capitalist” and blasted his work as CEO of Bain Capital as “bankrupting companies and laying off employees.”…

The BWIA Taboo

Last week, a Mommy Maelstrom unleashed when Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen, interviewed as an “expert” on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360, charged that Ann Romney, who reared five boys as a stay-at-home mom and continues to be the better half of presidential candidate Mitt, had “never worked a day in her…

Reason #6

I think I like Mitt Romney, the man. I have defended some of what he has said. But I doubt I will support him for the presidency — and if he gets elected, I’d likely spend as much time criticizing him as I did George W. Bush and as I…

Video: Ryan’s “Path to Prosperity”

"Washington has not been telling you the truth," says Rep. Paul Ryan — Mitt Romney's selection for his running mate: Consider what he offers, following up with the rest of the video in its second and third installments. But take caution. Rep. Ryan's plan is very slow to take effect,…

As a candidate for the presidency, Mitt Romney has a number of things going for him. He’s rich, handsome, and has a funny first name. Perhaps more importantly, he’s neither Donald Trump nor Newt Gingrich. But still, he does have a niggly problem: His experience. He was the Massachusetts governor…

Squelching the Revolution

Relevance: 86%      Posted on: June 27, 2012

During the months of primaries and caucuses, the popularity of Ron Paul was a fear expressed amongst both neoconservative and “mainstream” Republican insiders in hushed tones, rarely ever surfacing, but instead roiling under politics’ prudential lid. Now that Mitt Romney has sealed the nomination with enough delegates from the primary…

Bite the Hand

I’m not sure there’s much percentage in talking about percentages. Divvying folks into groups, and then relying on people to “stay” within their group — behaving according to one’s specifications — seems . . . kind of creepy. Last year’s “Occupy” movement, with its relentless pitching of the “99 percent,”…

The Real Whopper

Relevance: 78%      Posted on: June 18, 2012

“Today, government at all levels consumes 37 percent of the total economy, or GDP,” Mitt Romney said earlier this month. “If Obamacare is allowed to stand, government will reach half of the American economy.” Glenn Kessler’s Fact Checker column at the Washington Post slapped that statement with four “Pinocchios,” the…

Greed and Bigotry on the Campaign Trail

Relevance: 75%      Posted on: August 19, 2011

On the video page featuring Mitt Romney’s notorious “corporations are people” comment — the one I clicked to, anyway — every comment was negative, with jokes like “Did you hear that S&P downgraded the Tea Party credit grade to KK+?” and economically illiterate whoppers like “Corporations do not help anyone…

Into Each Life, a Little Romney Falls

Relevance: 74%      Posted on: March 7, 2012

Some things I just “don’t get.” How can either pro-lifers or Obamacare opponents trust Mitt Romney? Sure, he says he’s pro-life and he pledges to repeal the Democrats’ health care reform package. But for years he said he was for abortion rights; he switched in what’s been called a “flip-flop-flip”…
