The knights are restless and for good reason.

Which Romney?

He steals from the middle class and gives to his offshore bank accounts.

There are some obvious questions that Obama should have asked his opponent during his debatable performance. Maybe he’ll ask this one at the next debate.

Governor, before we start our debate, I’d like to ask you, which Romney will be debating me, tonight? Because last time we met, I was confused as to which one was up there on the platform with me. You see, you look so much alike, but that’s where the resemblance ends.

The Romney with whom I debated on October 3rd was obviously not the same Mitt that tried to out-conserve his conservative challengers. That Romney, you remember him, boasted that he was a STRICT conservative, as opposed to the other contenders, Michelle Bachmann, Newt Gingrich, Herman Cain and the two Dicks, Perry and Santorum, the not–all–that–strict conservatives.

The live audiences that witnessed those debates applauded loudly when the Texas Governor boasted of his state’s execution record. Yet, that Mitt Romney easily defeated Pistol-Packing Perry and all the others to the right of Genghis Kahn.

That Mitt Romney assured his billionaire base that he would lower their taxes, because their effective rate of around 14% was too much to pay, and was coming dangerously close to half the tax rate their secretaries pay. That Mitt asked us to trust him on just how he intended to pay for that boondoggle. But, like Nixon’s secret plan to end the Vietnam War, we’ll just have to wait until January 20 to see how you will achieve this.

And I was so glad to hear that you love Big Bird. I was worried about that. You don’t intend to fund him, the News Hour, and other public interest shows. And why should you? Federal outlays for public broadcasting are about .012% of our total budget, and we would have to beg China for the money to pay for it (their egg roll budget for an entire year). But you prefer K Street over Sesame Street and the Downtown Lobby to Downton Abbey. You think that the Koch Brothers, Exxon Mobil and Big Corn should fund public broadcasting because that would ensure fair news coverage when those giants of industry do something nasty to the planet.

Your positions have changed more times than a baby’s diaper. And we know what’s inside that diaper.

The Running of Bull at Denver

I’m asking you this question because I am now awake, which I was not rumored to be during our last debate.

    Well written Barry, I hope Obama reads your message. Do you have one for Romney? he will surely need it for the next debate, now that Obama has the talking points you have graciously provided.

  2. Leni Dubois on said:

    Well done, right on. We were all very frustrated with the BIG O on this. Hope next time is better.

  3. We all seem to get distracted by these campaign histrionics. Neither side is showing a workable plan to get the USA out of the miasma created in Washington. Our ineffective Federal legislature is hopelessly locked up in paralysis of partisan politics, attack-dog accusations, anemic jobs creation and non-prodctivity. The biggest and most crippling problems have not been solved or dealt with and these problems are hurting ALL generations. Increase the deficit through fiscal irresponsibility and at the same time provide less services for those that need it the most. Moral bankruptcy, I say!

    After this even-more-expensive-than-ever-election is over…what then? Will the livability and quality of life for the average person be any better? Why should we think so? These ne’er-do-wells have no accountability as their only motivation seems to be to feather their own nests by getting re-elected and getting their mugs on camera.

    Repugs or Democrats…when will you push forward to announce a workable budget plan and then do your jobs? If the atmosphere in Wash DC is business-as-usual, the results will be as usual – crippled gov’t leadership and a suffering public. A national tragedy and a squandering or resources.

    A pox on both their houses. Teaparty is an attack-dog with no conscience but why give them fodder by being an opponent with no rebuttal and that has no workable fiscal plan that won’t bankrupt this or the next generation?

  4. The voting public in general seem to have lost their collective minds regarding the election. Somehow I don’t think the masses are listening and reading in any depth about the candidates. They’re responding with their gut and are in such a panic they’ll gravitate like lemmings heading for a cliff towards that ’empty suit’.

    Hell, let all those lemings jump off the own cliffs but puh-lease don’t leave us with the [i]’Lemming-Drop Kid'[/i].
