I do not understand and I can not contemplate how ANYONE making less than 100k a year is willing to vote for the Republican party.
The only way Romney wins is to continue to push lies. He has to lie to you in order to convince you to vote against your own interests. Within the last month – Romney’s three biggest attacks on Obama:
Every single one of those was rated FALSE. Flat out false. Another word for that is LIE. Romney is a liar and he wants to be the liar in chief.
The Romney campaign is financed mostly by very large financial interests – the oligarchs. Even if you’re not a fan of Obama … it is time to send a message to those plutocrats. Now – some aren’t as optimistic as I am regarding an Obama presidency but my response to that is simple … I know a lot more about this than you do. I pay attention to this religiously and I have a brain that I utilize to its fullest extent. I can appreciate those who are disillusioned but to all of the naysayers who said in 2000 that the election was not important and “they were all the same” didn’t understand how significant an election that was.
2012 is another election like that. We are at a turning point. And reform is slow. President Obama is not Teddy Roosevelt. Politics is like tectonic plates … and these plates are moving whether you see them or feel them … but they’re there and they’re moving just the same. And they’re moving the right direction. We are not where we need to be but voting for Romney or choosing not to vote at all will put this country on a disaster course. The only person willing to raise taxes on the rich is Obama. The only person willing to cut defense is Obama. The only person willing to invest more money in education and infrastructure is Obama. The only person not trying to tell women what they can and can not do with their vaginas is Obama.
Voting for Romney is like slitting your own throat. You’re a fool if you do. I don’t recommend it.
If you do not understand the obstruction … then you can read this excerpt from The Party of NO: New details on the Gop Plot to Obstruct Obama:
It reveals some of my reporting on the Republican plot to obstruct President Obama before he even took office, including secret meetings led by House GOP Whip Eric Cantor (in December 2008) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (in early January 2009) where they laid out their daring (though cynical and political) no-honeymoon strategy of all-out resistance to a popular president-elect during an economic emergency. “If he was for it,” former Ohio senator George Voinovich explained, “we had to be against it.” The excerpt includes a special bonus nugget of Mitt Romney dissing the Tea Party.
David Obey, then-chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, met with his GOP counterpart, Jerry Lewis, to explain what Democrats had in mind for the stimulus and ask what Republicans wanted to include. “Jerry’s response was: ‘I’m sorry, but leadership tells us we can’t play,’” Obey told me. “Exact quote: ‘We can’t play.’ What they said right from the get-go was: It doesn’t matter what the hell you do, we ain’t going to help you. We’re going to stand on the sidelines and bitch.”
Their simple calculation is that you’re too stupid to understand how Congress works and that at the end of the day – you’ll vote to replace Obama even though they threw a wrench into everything. Are you stupid enough to fall for their plan? Some think I’ve drank the Kool-Aid; the Kool-Aid tastes good. Its not perfect but its better than poison Romney’s serving.
