Part 3

TSA, Don't Ask Don't Tell, etc. Watch Part 3 Romney Excerpt (s.19 : ep.3942)|03:12 on another TV monitor same page

Watch entire show Season 19 : Ep. 3942|42:09. This has opening with Obama lines, Obama kicking in a door (spoof), Wikileaks, other current news spoofs etc.

My Note: PETA spokesman stands up for Palin:

RE: On the Palin "Clubbing the Halibut" Romney comment:

I was listening to Howie Carr Boston WRKO the day before Thanksgiving with his guest from PETA. The PETA guest said Palin did the "humane thing" as the fish would have experienced ongoing pain. Realistic appraisal. This PETA Howie Carr guest (returns) was not your stereotypical media PETA guest/spokesman.

Romney is the endorsed candidate of the Bushes. We all love the Bushes, right? So vote for him!

The Bush clan has vetted on Romney and concluded that Romney’s more than qualified. His appearance in Leno shows the following:

Wow! He’s so funny!

Wow! He’s so intelligent!

Wow! He’s so full of gravitas!

Wow! He’s so elegant!

Let’s vote for Romney!

Just think of the primaries and the general election as another Mr. America contest.

Forget about principles and his lack-luster economic performance as governor in MA.

And don’t even try to think of RomneyCare. The Bush intellectual academy has already found it constitutional and consistent with the wants and needs of every MA. Romney has been acquitted from Romneycare through “former presidents’ still presidential political pardon”.

GO ROMNEY GO! OBAMA NEEDS ANOTHER MCCAIN!

Besides, Jeb Bush needs a 2-termer Obama in 2016 to successfully run for Prezzident!

Captain Howie Carr is an incorrigible RomneyBOT.

So what did PETA say about the backstabber Romney?


"But the details of the event are more than unseemly - they may, in fact, be illegal. Massachusetts's animal cruelty laws specifically prohibit anyone from carrying an animal "in or upon a vehicle, or otherwise, in an unnecessarily cruel or inhuman manner or in a way and manner which might endanger the animal carried thereon. "An officer for the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals responded to a description of the situation saying "it's definitely something I'd want to check out." The officer, Nadia Branca, declined to give a definitive opinion on whether Romney broke the law but did note that it's against state law to have a dog in an open bed of a pick-up truck, and "if the dog was being carried in a way that endangers it, that would be illegal."

"Dog on Roof? What Was It Like for Romney's Pooch? - Scientists Say Dog Likely Experienced Wind-Whipped, Uncomfortable Trip - "Before beginning the drive, Mitt Romney put Seamus, the family's hulking Irish setter, in a dog carrier and attached it to the station wagon's roof rack. e'd built a windshield for the carrier, to make the ride more comfortable for the dog,".. Jordan Kaplan, the owner of Petaholics, a dog walking service in New York City,
and a lifelong dog owner and dog lover, said Romney's actions were uncalled for"


"Romney's dog - This is a distinction Mitt Romney probably could do without, but he is surely the first presidential candidate to be attacked for putting a dog with diarrhea in a carrier and tying it to the top of a station wagon. Romney's defense: Seamus liked it. [like the citizens under Romney's RomneyCARE, etc.?] "


"As the oldest son, Tagg Romney commandeered the way-back of the wagon, keeping his eyes fixed out the rear window, where he glimpsed the first sign of trouble. ''Dad!'' he yelled. ''Gross!'' A brown liquid was dripping down the back window, payback from an Irish setter who'd been riding on the roof in the wind for hours. As the rest of the boys joined in the howls of disgust, Romney coolly pulled off the highway and into a service station. There, he borrowed a hose, washed down Seamus and the car, then hopped back onto the highway."

"Story about dog on car roof comes back to bite Romney - 200 comments from readers complaining of animal cruelty"

Romney's bad behavior Exposed by Seamus

"Romney Loses Nomination Over Dog Abuse? - Romney was traveling that summer with his wife, five sons, and Seamus to his parent's cottage on Lake Huron. But hours into the ride, Seamus apparently suffered diarrhea, which ran down the back window of the car. .David Kravitz wrote on BlueMassGroup, a liberal blog. "It also strikes me as classic Romney: it solves a problem efficiently, in a business-like manner, and with no regard whatsoever for the suffering that the solution may cause."


"Despite outspending his rivals by huge margins throughout the primaries,
(Mitt Romney, Carpetbagger UT,CA,MA,NH,Mexico) lost Iowa, South Carolina, Florida and California.
The only primaries he won were in Michigan, where Dad was governor; LDS states;
and a few states on Super Tuesday in which his California-obsessed rivals
couldn't spare the cash to advertise.
Only John Connolly in 1968 had a worse cash-to-delegates ratio.
And John McCain rightly did not like Romney's tactics during the primaries.
(W)hen (Romney's early leads) started slipping away, he resorted to unfair,
distorted, scorched-earth negative ads, betting that his opponents couldn't
afford to spend enough for the truth to catch up to his charges."

You mentioned a lot of great points but, seriously, you forgot to mention his hair.

It is his best feature.

Mitt Romney is a Massachusetts liberal. Americans rejected the idea of having a Massachusetts liberal as POTUS back in 2004.

His appearance on Jay Leno could be no less relevant.

Oops. I deeply apologize.

Hey ... this is FR’s special thread for Romney.

I’ll report this offence to RomneyCop Jo Scarborough.

"Romney praises Obama
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney praised President Obama
at a GOP fundraising dinner Wednesday ..
"I also think it's important for us to nod to the president when he's right," Romney said....
Romney, who spoke at a dinner for the National Republican Senatorial Committee,
said he's pleased with the president's plans to "finish the job" in Iraq and Afghanistan
-- lines that drew applause from the partisan audience. He also applauded the president
for standing up to the auto industry.
"I hope he continues to be tough ....The former businessman even offered faint praise for
Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, saying that after a series of initial missteps,
"I think he's finally getting close to the right answer."

Mitt believes in state’s rights and the rights of individual states to determine their own health care needs and to the right to determine what makes sense for them – if and when they determine that it is necessary. Romney agreed to make Mass Care work more effectively by reviewing and making the necessary changes. Mitt Romney left office.

The Mandate was welcomed by many MA residents. It was done without raising taxes and paid for with federal monies and state users fees/licenses. The plan that Governor Patrick created by adding to the Mitt's "starter plan" had ADDITIONAL elements that caused costs to rise.

Romney has said he believes mandates from the Federal level to be unconstitutional. I live in a state in the NE where our taxes are just as high as MA without the Health care plan mandate MA has presently. Our residents income is significantly lower. The population lower. The industrial base lower.

A question to Mitt might be what changes would he have made to control costs?

Also I wish someone would ask Palin, if Mitt throws his hat into the ring would run as she stated she would if no one she believed capable entered the race.

In ME we now have a very capable Republican Governor/businessman after 3 decades. Let's see what changes.

We are in limbo when it comes to Health Care and its bankrupting costs-a real crisis financially for many Americans.

How do we address the high cost of Health Care? How do we remain the best in health care when we can't afford to pay for the best? But our politicians can.Politics gets into the mix and nothing gets done.

Illegal immigration is a key factor

The old political Merry-go-round just keeps circling, music playing; but really goes nowhere.

Correction: If Mitt throws his hat into the ring would she run, as she stated she would do so; if no one she believed capable entered the race.

Incidentally in the interview Mitt said he would not enter into any Palin bashing, when Leno was asking him about Palin leaving office; but then he did not say what Palin clearly said in her announcement to leave that she had accomplished in 2 years all she promised to have done in 4. She was constantly attacked by attorneys on the Left which she had to fight financially and won) and time wise which had to cut into her duties as governor of Alaska. Why doesn't anyone ever bring that up in her defense if they really wanted to get the truth out instead of pretending to be all chivalrous about it. I guess is selective memory.

One can report on the entire script of her speech with the Lt Governor on that day.

That is a big issue for many to overcome as has been beaten into their little pea brains for so long--"she left". Too many make decisions from the noise coming out of the media/blogging mocking birds.

Fascist Mitt Romney (Backstabbing Carpetbagger) imposed
his RomneyCARE without a vote of the citizenry.

Just like his gay marriage. Just like his BIG DIG coverup.

Screw all you lying RomneyBOTs.

Romney is a fascist.

Everyone in Massachusetts HATES RomneyCARE, you RomneyBOT.

Why don't you adopt it in Maine if you like it so much.

Hilarious. I forgot about the "dog on the wagon roof rack" story. Here is the actual 80's Caprice Wagon he put good 'ol Seamus the dog on. I think it's more funny than damning but I will have to start injecting it in posts from now on.

Laughs..[as the smoke settles]

I did not say I was for Romney or Palin or whomever comes down the pike..I just wrote some facts on both Palin and Romney. I have no clue at this point in time who I will vote for.

I guess living near MA, and having lived there at one time myself I know people who live there, like yourself..and whether I agree with them or not, they like the free health care. It was Romney’s baby but grew up under new parents.

No one is being a bot here but YOU. We can have civil dialogs on these threads without people like you going postal.

Never said anywhere I was for MA’s mandated HeathCare.
See you know nothing about Maine and the state’s health care called Dirigo. We have the choice of Anthem BCBS or Dirigo. New Governor LePage will hopefully make DirigoGone.

Don’t stay up too late cut and pasting the above Bot postings you do—it takes up space as it is and no one reads all the links anyway. Pictures really old, the dialog really old. The verbal whipppings really old as well. I now remember you. You’re the one against free speech if it not your speech.

I understand why someone said that they were surprised this thread was still up.

Should be a state’s issue..and the thing about the people voting for or against state provided health care? This issue under the cover of the polling booth, pencil or lever in hand, might prove a shocker with last minute turncoats.

The gay issue you spout about should be the Church, not the State or Federal government that decides. Am I safe to assume you have no gay friends, associates or family members?

Peace { LOL }

Yes..have seen some Bushleaks.

The media keeps us bogged down with the same emphasis, whether love or hate, on certain star power politicians of their making.
