THAT'S Their Selling Point?!

For the first time since the announcement that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are now a couple, they spent time apart on Monday.

Romney went to Florida by himself to try to convince the seniors there that the Romney/Ryan plan would not be putting them on a diet of Fancy Feast. (This is true by the way. Their plan wouldn't allow seniors to buy any name brand cat food. Strictly generic cat food for them, if they're lucky...)

Team Romney already knew that this would be a hard sell for them, as evidenced in an interview they did for "60 Minutes." They're new spiel isn't really going to be very helpful to them:
My mom is a Medicare senior in Florida. Our point is we need to preserve their benefits, because government made promises to them that they've organized their retirements around. In order to make sure we can do that, you must reform it for those of us who are younger. And we think these reforms are good reforms.
In other words, what Romney and Ryan are trying to tell the senior citizens is this:
"Don't worry, we're not putting the hit on you. We're going after your children's and grandchildren's money instead!"
Now, that might work for the 'Screw you - I got mine!' crowd which makes up the core of the Teapublican Party, but all the parents I know get pretty damn protective of their children and grandchildren, regardless whether they are adults or still are miners. I can't imagine that many of them would allow someone would try to harm their kids in any way.

But just as mind boggling, if not more so, is the hypocrisy that drips from them as they point fingers and accuse Democrats of trying to spend so much that our children and grandchildren are going to foot the bill for it. Even if this was true, which it's not, it's better to just go and steal the money from them instead.

I can't wait to see their argument about how the corporations are so much better at telling us how to spend our money than we are and are the answers to all our problems.


  1. These Poor Kids Are FORCED To Work In A MINE !

  2. Since Rmoney is Mormon, doesn't that allow him more than one running mate?

  3. Neither of their mothers had to give Medicare a moment of thought! Both could afford to purchase any care they needed out of pocket and not noticed it on their balance sheet. I believe they are both exceedingly out of touch

  4. What does the sign "money Rayn" mean? Is it Ayn Rand spelled in another way? Is it Romney and Ryan mixed up? Is it from the Romney campaign or is it a spoof? I don't get it.

  5. The sign says Rmoney/Rayn which is Romney/Ryan with the letters moved around.
