Why Won't Romney Talk About His Tenure as Massachusetts Governor?

More like this, please.

The one time he was actually a government executive, as Governor of Massachusetts, is off the radar for the Romney campaign when he touts his experience. Why? Because he sucked at it, that's why. You can thump your chest about the successes of vulture capitalism all you want, Mitt, but when the shit hits the fan, you can't sell off Alabama or Louisiana because they cost more in federal tax dollars than they take in.

What will you do then? Add "fees" instead of raise "taxes"?

ADDING... The only good thing he did while Governor of MA was Romneycare, which he's trying to run away from as fast as possible. We are really deep through the looking glass, huh folks?

Is Mitt Romney's Birth Certificate Fake?

I'm sorry, but I'm not buying it.

Yesterday, as a cherry on the top of clinching the Republican nomination and playing grab ass with billionaire casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and not really reality TV host Donald Trump, Mitt Romney released his birth certificate.

Was it a Romney wink of the eye to the Birther crowd and a jab in the eye to President Obama while in the middle of a .0001Percenter circle jerk with Adelson and Donald "Obama was born in Kenya" Trump? No, says the Romney campaign, they were responding to a reporter's request from the previous day.

But let's take a look at this document, shall we?

1- Clearly, this is not the original. It's a copy that was issued on January 18, 2012. Where is the original?

2 - I think the request was for Mitt Romney's "Birth Certificate," not "Certificate of Live Birth" as is displayed on the title. What is Mitt Romney trying to hide?

3 - Mitt's father, George Romney was born in Mexico. Does that mean George Romney was actually a Mexican citizen and not a US citizen? If so, why is Mitt eligible?

4 - This is a short-form copy. Where is the long-form birth certificate? Why should this short-form be sufficient?'

Again, I don't buy it. I'll need to see Mitt Romney's original, long-form birth certificate with a raised seal before I find another reason not to believe the piece of crap above is a forgery.

Attention, Donald Trump...

...if you have questions about President Obama's place of birth, then by definition, you are a Birther. Trying to qualify it is nonsense.
"A lot of people are questioning his birth certificate," Trump said on CNBC on Tuesday. "They're questioning the authenticity of his birth certificate." 
"I've been known as being a very smart guy for a long time. I don't consider myself birther or not birther but there are some major questions here and the press doesn't want to cover it," he said.

Wait, WHAT!?


Remember when West Virginia election results were reported as "an inmate got almost as many votes as Obama in the Dem primary"? Why didn't we hear that Obama got almost as many votes as ALL the GOP candidates COMBINED and that the inmate only got 5,000 votes fewer than Romney?

State results are oh, so interesting.

The Mitt App

I thought Mitt Romney was running for President of America. Where's Amercia?

UPDATE: I downloaded the app to make sure it wasn't a bad joke. And yes, this is legit.

Here's one I took myself:

Quote of the Day

"I guess I'm known as a RINO now, which means a Republican in name only, because, I guess, of social views, perhaps, or common sense would be another one, which seems to escape members of our party. For heaven’s sake, you have Grover Norquist wandering the earth in his white robes saying that if you raise taxes one penny, he’ll defeat you. He can’t murder you. He can’t burn your house. The only thing he can do to you, as an elected official, is defeat you for reelection. And if that means more to you than your country when we need patriots to come out in a situation when we’re in extremity, you shouldn’t even be in Congress." 
~Former Sen. Alan Simpson (R-Wyo.)
