Mitt's So Bain!

We wrote about how Mitt not only got Booed at the NAACP convention, but that is exactly what he wanted to happen!

Despite being caught red-handed in a serious lie, Mitt instead of owning up to his dishonesty(what republican ever takes personal responsibility) instead Mitt doubled down.  Not only did he not clear things up, Romney demanded an apology from President Obama.  The President and his team came out with one of the better political ads I have seen! 


As for calling out Mitt for his despicable actions of the last few days, Matt Taibi from Rolling Stone was incredibly harsher than I was:  

Romney really showed us something in his luridly self-congratulating N.A.A.C.P. gambit, followed by the awesomely disgusting "free stuff" post-mortem speech he delivered the next night in front of friendlier audiences. The twin appearances revealed the candidate to be not merely unlikable, and not merely a fatuous, unoriginal hack of politician, but also a genuinely repugnant human being, a grasping corporate hypocrite with so little feel for how to get along with people that he has to dream up elaborate schemes just to try to pander to the mob.

Taibi also took umbrage for Mitt's speech the next night implying that the african american audience only wanted "free  stuff":

So now this is the message: I tried to reason with the blacks, I really did, but it turns out they just want a free lunch.

How’s that for bridging the racial divide? Time to wake up the Nobel committee in Oslo!

As far as free lunches go, we of course just witnessed the biggest government handout in history, one that Romney himself endorsed. Four and a half trillion dollars in bailout money already disbursed, trillions more still at risk in guarantees and loans, sixteen trillion dollars in emergency lending from the Federal Reserve, two trillion in quantitative easing, etc. etc. All of this money went to Romney’s pals in the Wall Street banks that for years helped Romney take over companies with mountains of borrowed cash. Now, after these banks crashed, executives at those same firms used those public funds to pay themselves massive salaries, which is exactly the opposite of “helping those who need help,” if you’re keeping score.

That set of facts alone made the “free stuff” speech shockingly offensive. But the problem isn’t just that Romney’s wrong, and a hypocrite, and cynically furthering dangerous and irresponsible stereotypes in order to advance some harebrained electoral ploy involving white conservative voters. What makes it gross is the way he did it.
 Also one last typical story from Mitt Romney is he recently attended a fundraiser, where Dick  "13% approval rating" Cheney endorsed him.  What is funny is, that everyone knows that Dick Cheney is Coyote Ugly!  In fact Dick Cheney is so politically ugly and unpopular that Mitt forbid anyone from taking a picture of the two of them together
