What is with these people and hidden cameras? Don’t they realize by now that, like Visa, they’re everywhere you want to be?
Just like open mics:
You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not.
And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.
Barack Obama, Nob Hill, San Francisco, April 9, 2008
"On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this can be solved, but it's important for him [Prime Minister Vladimir Putin] to give me space." He added, "This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility."

Butt hey! This isn’t about violating the space of our royalty. This is about Romney and his insensitive comments that prove definitively what we’ve been saying all along: he hates poor people.
This candid camera moment is actually from last May, butt we’ve been waiting for the right time to release it. Yesterday, concurrent with the announcement from Libyan officials that they gave the US three days warning prior to the attack on our embassy, was that right time. As we like to say around here, if you can’t change the facts, change the story. It was clearly time to make fun of Romney again. For speaking the truth. Which we won’t tolerate.
“There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that’s an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what…These are people who pay no income tax... my job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives…. The president has been a disappointment. He told you he’d keep unemployment below 8 percent. Hasn’t been below eight percent since. Fifty percent of kids coming out of school can’t get a job. Fifty percent.”
Mitt Romney, Boca Raton, FL, May 17, 2012
Odd though, because the Dems usually revel in pointing out how all of these various special interest victim classes are dependent on government, and are in their stable. It’s just that when a Republican acknowledges it, it sounds so…so hateful! So much like class warfare.
So can we stop talking about the failure of Big Guy’s Middle-East foreign relations policy of appeasement? And his gazillion dollar deficit, and his failure to create jobs, jobs jobs!, and the increasing prices of everything from gasoline to hamburgers, and the continuing weak housing market, and the ongoing decrease in manufacturing statistics and the near bankruptcy of the Social Security Disability pool…?
Because the real issue is that Romney hates little people and he thinks we’ve already got too many people dependent on government. Instead of getting out there and not building things on their own.

Political truth of the day: There is no room for truth in politics.
