I am just sooooo tired of you airheads. Politics ain’t a limbo contest.
An open letter to Jim Messina and Stephanie Cutter on the Left, Matt Rhoades and Kevin Madden on the Right:
The Thief-in-Chief calls the Candidate-in-Chief a “liar or a felon” over the date he signed some papers.
Let us not forget that the Loyal Opposition has long claimed the Thief-in-Chief has no papers.
The Candidate-in-Chief retorted “liar liar pants on fire” about the Thief-in-Chief.
Let us not forget that the Loyalists have long claimed the Candidate-in-Chief is an evil, religious, rich guy.
I don’t give a hoot.
I don’t have a job.
Barack Obama made more money in Illinois selling political favors than you made in all of 2001. I don’t care.
Mitt Romney made more money last night than you made last year. I don’t care.
See, I read the news. I already know what Barack Obama has done to this country for the past three years. No amount of sleight-of-hand or political spin will change that although I have noticed he is running on “change” again. I also know what Mitt Romney has done for the past twenty years.
“I fixed the auto industry!” Mr. Obama crows in his ads. Sure. Stealing General Motors from its stockholders and introducing the worst selling car since the Aztek (which itself sold 112 more cars than the Edsel) is a great fix.
Mr. Obama? Quit it. Just stand up there in front of your record unemployment, your record public debt, your Chicago politics and tell us step-by-step how you are going to fix what you’ve done.
“I know what its like to worry whether youre gonna get fired,” Mr. Romney said in New Hampshire.
Mr. Romney? Quit it. Just stand up there in front of your record at Bain, good and bad, your Olympics record, your Massachusetts record, and tell us step-by-excruciating-step what you will do to fix this mess.
My friend Dean “Dino” Russell is a roofer in the middle Keys. Dancing about on roofs all his life has made him the most physically fit man in the Home Depot and gives him a unique overview of life. Dino noted that, “What this country needs is a veterinary service that will spay and neuter otters at a reasonable rate, not another third-rate carnival barker who can do the limbo.”
And, for the record? Until the IRS tells me otherwise, I figure Barack Obama and Mitt Romney followed the tax code to the letter and paid exactly the taxes they each owed. As did Mortimer Zuckerman and Warren Buffett and David Koch and Sheldon Adelson. And me.
And I don’t even have a job.
UPDATE – UPDATE – UPDATE – UPDATE – UPDATEJuly 21, 2012 — “We will pull all the ‘comparison’ ads.”
July 22, 2012 — CBS Sunday Morning today aired the singing Romney ad. “Approved by Barack Obama. Paid for by Obama for America.” CBS’ Face the Nation today aired the “You can change” ad. Paid for by Karl Rove’s American Crossroads PAC.
Good to see nothing ever changes.
