  • Mitt Romney flashback: Stay-at-home moms need to learn ‘dignity of work’

    Mitt Romney, it turns out, was against calling stay-at-home mothers “working moms” before he was for it. MSNBC’s Chris Hayes broke the news this morning. Back in January, Romney appeared at a town hall even in Manchester, New Hampshire, where he explained his position on welfare. “While I was governor,” Romney said, “85 percent of the people on a form of welfare assistance in my state had no work requirement. I wanted to increase the work requirement. I said, for instance, that even if you have a child two years of age, you need to go to work. And people...

  • Romneycare Funded Health-Care for Illegal Immigrants (October 24, 2011)

    Mitt Romney, who has called government-funded programs that offer assistance to illegal immigrants “magnets” that draw more illegal immigrants to the country, allowed a health-care program that helps illegal immigrations to be included in the final version of his health-care program that he signed. From the Los Angeles Times: The Massachusetts healthcare law that then-Gov. Mitt Romney signed in 2006 includes a program known as the Health Safety Net, which allows undocumented immigrants to get needed medical care along with others who lack insurance. Uninsured, poor immigrants can walk into a health clinic or hospital in the state and get...

    The Democrats have found their kind of war. It's the "war against women" they have conjured for the Obama Presidential campaign run. Should be fun, but don't look for any of the combatants to speak for the realities of today's women. Still, there's an opportunity here for Mitt Romney, if he'll seize it. The White House has wasted little time capitalizing on Mr. Romney's perceived weakness among women. Polls show the President with a 20-point advantage over the Republican with women voters. Team Obama is hoping to use the recent fight over mandated insurance coverage for contraception to broaden the...

One percent per day keeps the 404 away, but we need your help to get her up to full battle speed.

  • Waukesha Co. DA investigates alleged Mitt Romney subs-for-votes

    A spokesperson for Waukesha County District Attorney Brad Schimel told 27 News Schimel has launched an investigation into allegations that free sandwiches given out on election day by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney violated Wisconsin law. Waukesha County investigator detective David Witkowski told 27 News the criminal probe began Wednesday with interviews and requests for records. On Tuesday, April 3, Romney and Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan greeted people at a Cousins Subs restaurant on Pearl Street. News video shows Romney encouraging people to vote and inviting them to pick up free sandwiches. "A reasonable person would understand that Romney's statement...

    In an interview with CNN today, Marco Rubio said in no uncertain terms that he’s not going to be the vice president. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, widely speculated to be a top pick for the Republican presidential running mate, once again firmly denied he would join the GOP ticket. “I’m not going to be the vice president,” Rubio said Friday in an interview with CNN en Espańol’s Ismael Cala. “I’m not.” We have two options. We can assume that Rubio meant to imply he wouldn’t join the 2012 GOP ticket under any circumstances — OR — we can parse...

    In the end, free societies get the governments they deserve. So, if the American people wish to choose their chief executive on the basis of the "war on women," the Republican theocrats' confiscation of your contraceptives or whatever other mangy and emaciated rabbit the Great Magician produces from his threadbare topper, they are free to do so, and they will live with the consequences. This week's bit of ham-handed misdirection was "the Buffett Rule," a not-so-disguised capital-gains tax hike designed to ensure that Warren Buffett pays as much tax as his secretary. If the alleged Sage of Omaha is as...

    A reminder for those who are not receiving the message: Romney is a pathological compulsive liar. Lie after lie papered over with more lies. Doesn’t even flinch when caught in bald faced lies, simply tells another big whopper to cover up or dodge the issue. Funny thing, the man actually seems to believe his own latest lies and simply ignores the glaring record of his past actions/lies. And you have true blue establishment elite RINO Republicans like Karl Rove enabling and backing up his lies. Their motivation is simply to hang on to power (and riches) any way they can....

    This video was created for instruct members of NumbersUSA to help get a bill passed (E-Verify), but I can picture a more perfect lesson in civics for any grass-roots conservative movement. http://numbersusa.tv/ The bill being discussed would mandate E-Verify, a program which helps business detect identity fraud by illegal aliens, so that immigration laws can be enforced. NumbersUSA is *not* a conservative organization, per se; like the NRA, they focus on a single issue, which happens to be very popular among conservatives. Vast majorities of all Americans support NumbersUSA's goal of reducing illegal immigration (and certain types of "legal" immigration,...

    We seem to have reached the end of the United States of America, folks. At least that is what the Obama syndicate wants us to believe. The time to panic has come and gone and now the great and planned wasteland of what was once our country has already begun its implementation. Will we ever stop it? From a recent Obama court’s ruling that passengers have no more rights not to be sexually molested by TSA employees through the US Treasury being summarily routed by Obama, Geithner and the rest of the Obama syndicate’s hordes, the US Constitution’s Bill of...

    Episode 141 – Of Crap Sandwiches and Grand Bargains What I need ... is a Republican Party that understands that it’s only useful when it is a brightly-contrasting counterpoint to the big-government, overspending, totalitarian-leaning Democratic Party. I’m not going to get that this election, so I’ve offered the GOP a deal. Call it a compromise, if you like because “compromise” sounds so much nicer than “one last chance for them to redeem themselves”. The show got a bit ranty, especially in the second half, but it needed to be that way. These days, the only way to get the attention...

    What if the government never took the Constitution seriously? What if the same generation -- in some cases the same human beings -- that wrote in the First Amendment, "Congress shall make no law ... abridging the freedom of speech," also enacted the Alien and Sedition Acts, which made it a crime to criticize the government? What if the feds don't regard the Constitution as the Supreme Law of the Land? What if the government regards the Constitution as merely a guideline to be referred to from time to time, or a myth to be foisted upon the voters,...

    Free Republic - Vanity | April 12, 2012 | NorthernCrunchyCon
    As noted on another thread, political pundits often compare presidential elections to previous ones. In the case of Romney vs. Obama, conservatives should look north to the Dominion of Celine Dion and Maple Syrup. This is a repeat of John Tory vs. Dalton McGuinty, the 2007 election in Ontario during which the two candidates contested governance of Canada's largest province. The only difference, other than citizenship, is that John Tory was not Mormon. He was a nominal Protestant, for the most part indistinguishable from the Kennedy Catholic he was challenging. Nevertheless, religion would cost him the election. As Ontario Liberal...

    Alan Keyes wrote: As I anticipated, “the elitist machinations of the sham party system are predictably moving America toward another false choice between an avowed socialist Democrat and a prevaricating socialist Republican.” Marco Rubio’s endorsement of Mitt Romney kicks off an orchestrated wavelet of “influential” endorsements, signaling an end to the sham competition that culminated in a not very credible “dramatic face-off” between Romney and one of his 2008 cheerleaders, Rick Santorum... The “lesser evil” approach guarantees the triumph of wrong. So in choosing between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama we are like the cornered target of the hit man...
