“Hope it includes these Romney gems!

* "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."

* "Corporations are people, my friend.”

* "I like being able to fire people who provide services to me."

* "I'm not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there."

* "As president, I will create 12 million new jobs." (second presidential debate)

* "Government does not create jobs." (45 minutes later, same debate)”

Zilo on Dec 10, 2013 at 06:46:39

“I love that one about the 12 million jobs. I guess that makes him an underachiever and proud of it. The "government does not create jobs" line is ALWAYS gold with conservatives. They don't want the government to get credit for doing ANYTHING right...unless, of course, they're in the government. They all do this”

“A WHITE audience at a “Black Outreach”.

What does that tell you? LOL

This perfectly illustrates the GOP ideology and policy platform in a nut shell.

(Remember the 2012 RNC Convention? Anendlessseaoflilywhite.)”

“I don't get it!
IT IS THE GOP STRATEGY.
The Whites are PLANTED to entice the Uppity Blacks who may come.
In effect give them that NOVEAU Political Experience, then the Uppity Minorities with email their friends to attend the GOP's next calling venues.

Can you explain the GOP TAX DODGING mind to me a Democrat who is interested in the Welfare of ALL Americans?”

She knew who and what GZ was going into the relationship.

A killer.

Why's she surprised he's being GZ?

She needs as much professional help as he does.”

“We’ve all heard the GOP “message”.

That’s the problem - we've seen their product up close and personal.

We know all the ingredients, how it’s put together, how it works, who the manufacturers are.

Too many in America - across the spectrum - have already been victims of their bitter, worthless, new-and-improved crocodile oil.

And they wonder why they can’t even give away “Rand’s Magic Elixir”. LOL”

“If the Republican "message" was worth hearing - if it offered true substance, social uplift and a plan for national prosperity across the spectrum - they wouldn't need to do "outreach" to attract black Americans (or women or Latinos).

Put it another way -

If you've got a great product that EVERYONE benefits from, it essentially sells itself.

You don't need to beg people to buy it.”

“1) Ship off American jobs by the MILLIONS.
2) Demonize and punish the jobless.
3) Gut UI (and Food Stamps and all other social programs).

Makes perfect sense - in GOPFantasyLand.

> If you take away a man’s sole means of self-support in our (100% rigged) economic system, you then become responsible for his survival.

Anything less is 100% psychopathic.”

“If one receives UI benefits, it is prima facie proof that one was QUALIFIED to receive them by virtue of having been (responsibly) EMPLOYED (often for many years) and then laid off through no fault of their own. It doesn't work any other way.

It’s not called Unemployment Insurance by accident. It is NOT charity, it’s NOT an “entitlement”.

Blaming and vilifying victims, the disenfranchised and the least among us is always bad, bad, bad politics.

Republicans will find out just how bad in 2014 and 2016.”

“Exactly, my friend. It is amazing to me that people who are "allegedly" educated portray U.I. as a Welfare program.... which it is not; it is no more a welfare program that the insurance on your car or your life. It is there to mitigate a loss. In U.I.'s case it is the loss of employment. I wish that someone would put a cork in Rand Paul (because I'm tired of the [dumb] that constantly pours out of his mouth) and find him a "real" job, that can then be taken away from him by his Party's policies and then HE has to survive on a U.I. benefit. ;-)”

“Unfortunately you see how many votes they get and how many elections they win. Democrats have to appeal to peoples' good angels. Their compassion and empathy. Their sense of community and fair play. They have a much harder job than republicans cause people can be selfish and cruel. And this country and economy isn't fostering good feelings in people. We need to beat the regressives back under the rocks they crawled out from under.

“Without an army of poor, unemployed and destitute, filthyrich men like Rand Paul could not exist.

They have a vested interest in maintaining the status quo:

Less for you = more for me.

The bitter irony, though, is back during America's Golden Age (1945 - 1980), when unions were strong, when the top tax rate was 91%, EVERYONE from top to bottom prospered.”

“You're so right. Those were the years during which we built the greatest middle class the world had ever seen.

When Reagan cut taxes below the level needed to pay our bills, and taxes were so low that businesses no longer had to invest in their businesses or pay their employees more to lower their taxable income, that's when wages went flat, until they began actually falling in 2008.”
