Wow. That's just about the end of the "TAX GRANDMA'S FOOD AFTER TAKING AWAY HER SS AND MEDICARE" candidate Herman Cain:

http://thinkprogress.org/economy/2011/10/09/339783/herman-cain-tax-food/

xbjllb

"Cain is rising because he's dynamite. He's got an incredible "only in America" personal story. He's a successful CEO. He's smart, dynamic, personable, warm, and funny. He commands a stage. He advocates for his positions in an unapologetic way. He looks like he's happy to be running, meeting everyday Americans, and engaging the big issues. Most importantly: he looks like he's running not simply to serve his own personal ambitions but for what he can do for the country." - Monica Crowley


Yes indeed. And what exactly DOES he want to do for the country?

Take away Grandma's social security AND medicare, and then slap her with a nice big tax on her TRAILER RENTAL and the CAT FOOD she eats to stay alive.

Not to mention MEDICAL SERVICES and DRUGS.

Herman Cain is a monster. A traitor to his own race. The HUMAN race. And you courtesans of the rich live in an absolutely topsy turvy alternate universe.

Those castles you used to live in? Empty now.

LEARN BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE.

"This election cycle, anything can happen." - Monica Crowley


Anything EXCEPT a GOP victory.

Including, but not limited to, a revolution.

I can't believe I read some of that "Newt for President" crap just now.
This election is not about the economy, jobs, or Obamacare. It's about BULLSHIT and how much of it "WE THE PEOPLE" have been fed since the coup in 1963.
If Newt wins, I'll vote for Obama. At least he keeps it in his pants.

xbjllb

"He's got an incredible "only in America" personal story." - Monica Crowley


I read that book when I was a kid. My parents kept it in the bottom dresser drawer underneath all the clothes.

It's called "Falconhurst". And no, Herman Cain wasn't the "buck" field slave who knocked up the Mistress... no, he was the castrated house slave that ran to the Massah and told and got both the slave AND the Mistress killed.

His reward? Sold last, after the Massah drowned his crimes in drink and lost everything.

To a man who promptly sodomized him and then beat him to death because he screamed too loud.

Now THAT'S a TRULY incredible "Only in America" personal success story.

And one that Herman Cain could NEVER understand in a million years except by living it, in allegory.

No wonder the man can't WAIT to tax Grandma's cat food.

"Newt" - Monica Crowley


Could you POSSIBLY provide any more proof of the abject insane desperation of the GOP right now?

"Don't you just LOVE affirmative action noveau riche who can't WAIT to slam the door shut behind them?"

"Oh, but Darling, he's even better; he PATROLS those doors 24/7 with AK-47's."

Titter, titter. Laugh, laugh.

Jay, don't let the cretins get to you. As we know, they prove hourly they know absolutely NOTHING about you.

While, with each poisonous lie they spout, they reveal not only exactly who and what they are, BUT HE WHO SENT THEM.

Don't worry. I don't.
Years ago, was on the river boats in Nam, Later, when I got off the cargo ships for the time being.Some were Military SeaLift Command ships. Started getting on places like Youtube and had conversations with Neo-nazis.

These irregulars are just very impotent amatuers!

These are inmates out of the asylum. They say Monica "tolerates" them for "free speech." yadda blabba. They can't even face the fact that she has nothing to do with them--Gringoman

What Gringo can't understand is maybe Monica wants her blog to be a free speach site.

Thought tea baggers proclaim to love the Constitution more than others. But infact, they only use the Constitution when it suits them!

Notice that Monica seems to have a hands off policy concerning the irregulars as well!

That's conservatives for ya! The same people that held the 9/11 responders hostage. also, unemployment benefits, disaster victims and even though buisness and the Chamber of Commerce wants to fix infrastructure. The GOP doesn't.

Jay

What is the GOP doing today? Same thing they have been doing since they won back the House. Abortion bills. They have several committees on just that.
To them,it isn't jobs folks. Unless you count their Snakes on a Plane, but abortion.

I hate to say it, but I'm starting to like this "new" "Give 'em hell, Harry" Obama.

If only I and everyone else could be assured he wasn't going back into the closet on a wire hanger in January of 2013 like he did January of 2009.

bellez

I completely agree. Thousands of us in Kansas former Palin supporter are thinking JUST that. You people don't care about YOUR candidates past why Newts? I can't buy into the cutsie phrases of Cain...at all.We are all still praying..Those who settled for the "anyone but Obama sold out already" with a defeatist attitude..If I have to settle for establishment I'd go for the guy with the real guns to clean Obama's clock in policy-history-The next Potus will probably have to chose 2 new SCOTUS..Perry will probably appoint illegals or fall asleep Romney chose 75% liberals to his bench..Cain isn't that smart to know who's an activist or constitutionalist. No more on job training

they spinned that Perry did not say much about JOB CREATION......what happened in Alaska when they opened up that pipe line? am in W Texas now, spoke to a tanker driver doing 7 runs a day of crude from the fields to the refinery, making over 100K a year, his company is looking for drivers.....every business, oil related here is HIRING TOO.....I got to think if elected Perry's first order of business would be to issued drilling permits & reign in the EPA.....

(While some still can't figure out why the "free speech" troll trash single out Monicamemo instead of selecting other conservative sites to "educate" and hijack with their RULES FOR RADICALS prog talking points.).......

////As of this moment, Cain and Romney are walking away with the race. With nearly 30% each, they are head and shoulders above every other candidate in terms of GOP voters' ////

Monica's got it right and wrong (as with her G.O.P. "tolerance" of prog slimebots.) On Romney/Cain walking away with the poll numbers du jour? Right. Walking away with the race? Romney maybe (due to SLIME's focusing on today's polls and Perry still in siesta mode.)

But Cain walking away with it? Heh. Dream on, Americanos. The Obamasuck and Romneysuck Media will play along with the current delusion. It sells advertising. But Monica's a bright gal. So why can't she see the following?

1. Cain has no high-powered campaign team.

2. Cain has no money for a Presidential run.

3. True, as an experienced talk show host, Cain can out=speak and one-line every G.O.P. in it except Newt. He has many attractive qualities, is far more of a real black man than Barry Soetoro ever was or ever will be. But he's not running for President. He's on a glorified book tour, pitching his book. That's why he can be so appealingly relaxed. He's having fun, since he doesn't feel the pressure that a serious candidate does, especially one not yet subjected to the scrutiny that SLIME media will always get for a Republican, especially one who has left The Liberal Racist Plantation.

4. Gooper Central doesn't mind his current numbers. They know the odds are 99 to 1 that he can get the G.O.P. nod and beat out their reliable RINO Corporate Charley Mitt Romneycare.


ps Oh, one caveat. Cain for VP? Sure, that's a possibility. And nobody knows it better than Cain. He is not an Affirmative Action Negro, which is why the white progs and their black hacks hate and fear him, and will make sure he gets The Scrutiny.

Your article proves you either don't understand the battle happening within the Republican Party or you're knowingly ignoring it. The current GOP Establishment isn't Conservative, hence the rise of the TEA Party Movement. Many Pundits and Media ignorantly report that it was Obama that created the up-rise but he was just the straw that broke the camel's back, the TEA Party is a Movement against both parties and it's goal is to Restore the Republican Party and America to Constitutional-Conservatism. The battle going on in this Republican nomination process is between the GOP Establishment and Constitutional-Conservative/TEA Party Supporters. Romney is the GOP Establishment Candidate and Gingrich, Perry, Christie, etc. are just Stalking Horses for Romney, organized by the GOP Establishment who will ultimately try to destroy any Conservative that dare run, even to the point of losing the election to Obama. The GOP Establishment would rather lose an election and retain control of how they lose, than to allow a Conservative to win and lose control of how they win an election. The Big-Government GOP-Establishment-Machine will do anything to stay in Power of the Republican Party. The TEA Party Movement wants to break the back of the GOP Establishment..

J. BOOBUS PROGTROLL Hey, the scholars say that fascism is a right-wing extremism.

MARXELLA TROLLSCUM aka SCUMELLA X Boob, I want to patronize you, but help me. I know what you mean, but they will call us stupid lying weasels if you act like a simpleton boobyoisie.

1. Who are these "scholars." Can't you pull one out of your -----?

2. What the fook do you define as 'fascism'?

3. What the fook do you mean by 'extremism'?

4. Our communist Father Marx is called an "extremism."

5. You mean fascism is "rightwing socialism or communism?"

6. Yes? No?

7. Then why the fook don't you say it so they won't call us stupid lying weasels? At least give us an out-of-context quote to make Mussolini look like a Wall Streeter instead of the peasant socialist he was or the National Socialist his bud Hitler was.

8. Boobus, I'm on your side. Now try a little harder. Be careful. You know what our G.O.P. Den Mommy, Monica, could do to us, don't you? Pretend you have something between your ears. She's a Ivy League woman.

stewman, I'd say KNOWINGLY HOPING IT WILL GO AWAY.....I put all of the media pundits in the establishment category & sincerely wish they would do what they are suppose to, REPORT THE FACTS, & stfu on their opines....actually I wish they would do some investigative reporting........like why subpeona's are ignored....the sitting kings' entire resume & history...where'd all the money go.......but NO, their sole job is to sell US on something less than a political pimp.......I do disagree about Perry tho, cause his state is WORKING..........

Am in general agreement. But Perry just a "stalking horse"? Maybe, and maybe not. Anyway, let's get real. If not Perry, who can stop the G.O.P's White Obama (Romney)?

Feelings are fine, but I'm requesting names. Specifics. The possible, not the fantasy.

"He is not an Affirmative Action Negro" - Gringowhore

Oh, hell no. Not since he got his.

DJ

I wouldn't say Perry is a stalking horse, I'd say he is the establishment's fallback candidate should Romney fail. Furthermore,Perry is just as liberal as Romney; maybe moreso. The first clue that Perry is a lib is he worked to get Al Gore elected president.

AL GORE, FOR GODSAKE!

If that doesn't get your attention, his unabashed support for instate tuition for illegal immigrants should. Of course there is much much more.

What is needed is a Third Party candidate. The G.O.P. has proven time and time again to be unreformable. Let the checked pants country club types have it. The TEA Party is just wasting its time trying to reform it from within ... even though status quo lackeys like Rush and Hannity insist otherwise.

LongRifle

I don't even know what "Conservative" means any more.

Leftists John Malone and Ted Turner are the biggest Land Barons in the US. Since both are filthy rich old white men that pay virtually no taxes, doesn't that make "Conservatives" by Jay's definition?

Translation:

The current GOP Establishment isn't Racist enough (witness Michael Steele/Herman Cain), hence the rise of the TEA Party Movement. Many Pundits and Media ignorantly report that it was Obama that created the up-rise but he was just the ni**er straw that broke the camel's back, the TEA Party is a Movement against blacks and tolerance in both parties and its goal is to Restore the Republican Party and America to the Constitutional-Conservatism Racism of the 1920's when the Klan ruled and the Depression economy of the 1930's.

It's my opinion that Perry is indeed a Stalking Horse for Romney, used and discarded by the GOP Establishment/Fox News just to undercut Bachmann. I don't see much difference between the Liberalism of Perry and Romney. Perry admittedly uses Pay to Play and Crony Capitalism to create or bring jobs to Texas, believed he could circumvent Legislators and implement a Mandate through Executive Order against the will of the People, spoke out against Arizona's SB1070, refuses to use E-Verify to weed-out Illegals and went to Mexico to Promise Mexicans he would give Illegals In-State Tuition... Sounds much like Obama's ideology and resume... I'm looking for a Constitutional-Conservative President to restore Law and Order, not to continue the Lawlessness we have now in both parties. I'm not willing to compromise my Ideology just to elect another Liberal or Moderate Republican and continue the agenda of those who've ruined the Republican Party and set our Nation on a path to destruction .. I don't throw my support behind a person just because they can best win the nomination. I will throw my support behind the person who best represents my TEA Party ideology and Constitutional-Conservatism, then I’ll do all I can to help them get elected. My Ideal candidate isn't running but Bachmann, Cain and Santorum all represent my views more than Perry, Romney Huntsman, Paul or Gingrich..

xbjllb

"doesn't that make "Conservatives" by Jay's definition?" - longrifle


No. A handful of rich in this country have social consciences. GOOD men, often with GOOD women at their side. Sometimes not, but they push anyway.

Which is why God has blessed them so immensely.

The others devoid of social conscience, like Cain?

They fellated the other god to get what they have. And that's why they're so paranoid and selfish about it; they know it's liable to get yanked away from them any second and they'll have to kneel at the trough again.

xbjllb

Let's face it, the only team with any chances in Hell against Obama are ROMNEY/CHRISTIE, and even then those two chances are SLIM and NONE.

The rest of the nutcases? Forget about it. Bush spoiled the field for antiChristian militant Christianists for decades.

Rove knows what he's doing, trying to correct the mistake he is responsible for. The Kochheads? Not if their souls depended upon it.

And they do.

Can anyone here see how deviously cleaver and shifty Ol' Slick Rick tried to be when he offered explanations to both of those issues? He's playing the American people for dumbazzes. The crucial question is: Will the American people prove him right?

xbjllb

The GOP Establishment giving the big heave-ho to the insane religious nutcases that they exploited for decades, now that they've become much more of an impediment as far as independents and middle America is concerned than an asset, just goes to show how much they really care about social values.

Folks? Whoredom to fascist big biz America is going to trump and take precedence over pandering to your totalitarian nutcase megachurch theocracy fantasies ANY DAY.

Big biz pays the bills; YOU don't and never did. Oh, you were good for the occasional roll in the hay or two.

If the GOP is nuts enough to vote Perry, then Rove, Romney, and Christie will for sure run independent.

And we'll still end up with the same result.

The ONLY way Obama loses is running with Biden instead of Hillary.

Is this thing on? (Thump thump thump)

Saudis Before Americans?

Based on allegations that there was an Iranian plot to assassinate the Saudi Ambassador to the United States, the current White House occupant and his Attorney General chose to take action against Iran. Since the alleged Iranian plans violated American and international laws, as well as centuries of ambassadorial protocol, one can argue that it was important for the administration to take these actions. While those may prove to be defensible reasons, there remain underlying questions that are largely being ignored.

While Iran was funding counterinsurgencies and smuggling weapons used to kill Americans into Iraq and Afghanistan, it was OK with the current administration to maintain a policy of engagement with Iran. Why? What words, deeds or actions forthcoming from Iran justified that policy? Why was it OK to talk with instead of getting tough with Iran while they were actively engaged in the killing of Americans and pursuing nukes?

Then, when a member of the Royal Saudi family was at risk, action was required. Why? What makes the life of one Saudi citizen more valuable than the lives of American service men and women? Did it have anything to do with the mindset of an individual sitting in the White House who repeatedly apologized to the world for and openly disavowed belief in American exceptionalism? Did it have anything to do with the mindset of an individual who bowed to the Saudi King?

It’s both reasonable and responsible to pose such questions. With the USA’s foreign policies being held in disrespect around the globe, with America’s economy reeling from anti-business big government policies, and with long time American allies wondering where they stand, it’s the duty of all American Citizens to question the motives and actions of the individual currently occupying the desk that once bore the sign “The Buck Stops Here”.

"And a DJ fave is a lib too. Michelle Bachmann hustled for Jimmuh Carter at one time. JIMMUH CARTER, FOR GODSAKE! Try it again, DJ.]"

------

Nice try, Gringoman.

Michele Bachmann worked for Jimmy Carter when she was a very young woman and switch from being a Democrat to a Republican in her college years for ideological reasons, not as a convenient/opportunistic means to advance a political career as Rick Perry did.

--

See here:

"I’m always suspicious of those who switch political parties because one person in their party says or does something they don’t like; those who, for instance, decided they had to become Republicans because Bill Clinton soiled the Oval Office rug; or sudden John McCain supporters when Hillary lost the Democratic primary to Obama. Now, Michele Bachmann reveals she used to be a Democrat until the day she witnessed Gore Vidal besmirch the founding fathers. (h/t Political Wire)"

Michele Bachmann said in a 2010 speech:“Until I was reading this snotty novel called Burr, by Gore Vidal, and read how he mocked our Founding Fathers. And as a reasonable, decent, fair-minded person who happened to be a Democrat, I thought, ‘You know what? What he’s writing about, this mocking of people that I revere, and the country that I love, and that I would lay my life down to defend…I knew that that was not representative of my country. And at that point I put the book down… I looked out the window and I said, ‘You know what? I think I must be a Republican. I don’t think I’m a Democrat.’”

watch the vidio of speech here:


http://www.alan.com/2011/01/01/michele-bachmann-became-a-republican-because-she-didnt-like-gore-vidal/


DJ

Of course Alan Colmes is trying to denigrate Bachmann via the opening tone of the piece, but I think conservatives see through what Colmes is trying to do, thus Michele's conservative cred shines through.

DJ

LOL!

Did anyone here know Roseann Barr is a Mormon?

It's true!
