Now Ann Coulter is using “retard” in her tweets about Obama. Why is it that right wingers have to resort to this kind of stuff?
“Now Ann Coulter is using “retard” in her tweets about Obama. Why is it that right wingers have to resort to this kind of stuff?”
Because they know their formerly “severely conservative” candidate who now agrees with Obama on just about everything got his but kicked.
It’s that right winger civility thing, Gdad.
Couldn’t agree with you more, Dan..! One guy on CNN said, “if the debate had gone on for 30 more minutes, Romney would have been endorsing the President”
Coulter’s responding to the candidate she had to had shoved down her throat getting his ass kicked. How demoralizing for her to have to debase herself to support a guy she can’t stand in the interests of maintaining her RWnut cred.
You have to wonder if Romney has any convictions. i have never seen a candidate espouse so many compete opposite policies. His campaign said they were not going to let truth get in the way of the campaign and they meant it. Our allies must be scared to death of a man that can’t stand behind anything that he has said from one day to the next.
The US is in for one crazy ride should this man get elected. He simply has a forked tongue and little knowledge to back it up. You Teapartiers must really be confused not knowing whether you are voting for RW Mitt, Conservative Mitt, Moderate Mitt, or Liberal Mitt not just on one or two things but on every single issue. The only thing he has been consistent on is his desire to be president.
Another great photo Duane!! Thanks for sharing.
“Why is it that right wingers have to resort to this kind of stuff?”
Lack of imagination.
Thanks Ron, I truly enjoy trying to capture God’s Art.
I got in some what of a heated debate with a nephew of mine who is a gun toten, NRA fanatic and staunch Romney supporter…….When I said he has flip/flopped on everything, my nephew said, “Name one”….LOL, I said, name one he hasn’t?….It was more family love jesting, for I knew there would be no movement in his seeing anything wrong with Romney….I personally believe there are less, so called “undecided” out there as to what the media is saying…..In my 50 years of voting, I’ve never seen a clearer choice between the lesser of two evils….As seems to be the way most people feel every four years.
E. Duane, tell your nephew that Rmoney has flipflopped on all of the following and more, and then say, “Let Mitt tell you himself”, and have him spend six minutes watching this video. The video even shows him saying “I’m as consistent a human being as can be” and then “If you’re looking for consistency I’m not your guy”. He even flipflops on his consistency!
It might not undo the diehards’ determination to deny reality, but the subjects that Rmoney contradicts himself on publicly, on tape, include:
Special Interest Money
Auto Industry Rescue
No Tax Pledge
His Bain Capital record
Federal Role in Saving the 2002 Olympics
The Independence of Blind Trusts
Romney will once again be in favor of stimulus if he is elected. He loves bailouts. He got bailed out at Bain to the tune of $10 million (thanks, taxpayers!) And the feds also bailed out the SLC Olympics.
When bailouts are in his financial or political interests, he loves them!
Hey E. Duane, Warren would have served you better by advising you to have your nephew tune-in to WFIR am 960 every day at noon, to listen to Rush Limbaugh….and do so every day for 6 weeks.
Uh-oh, sounds like Dan is moving into President Romney territory. say it ain’t so, Dan.
Would you like to go ahead and change your prediction on the the election, Dan?
if WFIR were the only station my radio picked up, I would go without a radio rather than listen to the likes of Rush Limbaugh.
It’s funny. When Government redistribution distributes money to the wealthy (oil depletion allowance, farm subsidies, bank bailouts, estate tax repeal, etc.) somehow that’s good and pure and right. When the money goes to someone else? Socialism. Newspeak, i guess.

Did the Dark Money Group that Spurred a Landmark Ruling Mislead the IRS?
by Kim Barker, ProPublica, and Emma Schwartz, Frontline Oct. 22, 2012, 10 a.m.
A western nonprofit that played a key role in freeing corporate spending on elections nationwide appears to have misled the IRS when it applied for the tax-exempt status that shields its donors from being publicly disclosed.
Documents obtained by ProPublica and Frontline show that Western Tradition Partnership, now known as American Tradition Partnership, said it would not attempt to sway elections when it asked the IRS to recognize it as a tax-exempt social welfare organization in late 2008.
hortly before submitting the application, however, Western Tradition Partnership, which bills itself as a “grassroots lobbying” organization dedicated to fighting radical environmentalists, and a related political committee sent out fliers weighing in on candidates for Montana state office. The mailers blitzed districts in Montana days before the Republican primary.
This should be fun to watch:

In the Supreme Court, a Fight Over Sanctions for Government Misconduct
The Justice Department doesn’t want the U.S. Supreme Court to hear a dispute over alleged prosecutorial misconduct, urging the court to keep in place a ruling that voided an award of more than $600,000 in attorney fees to a Miami doctor who was acquitted in a drug case.
Responding to the Justice Department today, Dr. Ali Shaygan’s lawyers continued their effort to convince the high court to review the decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit to dismiss the legal fee award.
At issue is this: Under what scenario is a criminal defendant allowed to recoup legal fees under the Hyde Amendment? Federal law says a defendant can try to obtain fees if the legal position of the United States was vexatious, frivolous or in bad faith. But those terms are not defined.
