Folks, I am going to win this, but we need to worry about the Senate too. Do you know why liberals go crazy when i talked about my binder?
Here is the binder that we have for the Senate (there is more, but you get the idea)- President of Senate - Paul Ryan helped invent a new term called "forcible rape" - Senator Richard Mourdock (R-IN) - telling women to accept the "gifts from God" through rape- Senator Todd Akin (R-MO) - teaching women that their body can take care of not getting pregnant from rape- Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) opposes rape exception- Senator John MacGovern (R-VT) opposes rape exception- Senator John Raese (R-WV) opposes rape exception
I am proud of this binder on woman's rights. Arent you?On the other side the binder looks strange (you can figure out what is strange with this list)- Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI)- Senator Shelley Berkley (D-NV)- Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA)- Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA)- Senator Cynthia Dill (D-ME)- Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA)- Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY)- Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND)- Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI)- Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN)- Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO)- Senator Barbara Mikulski (D-MD)- Senator Patty Murray (D-WA)- Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI)- Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA)
In addition the sissy Kenyan Marxist Muslim liberation theologist is sneakily putting together a binder of his own too- Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan- Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor- Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg
See what i am talking about when i say what is at stake? We cant have this continue
You should vote for me because the President is mean. Look what he did to me yesterday. The pink colored comments are our thoughts that Mr WNB captured with his iphone 8.--------------------------------------------MS. CROWLEY: Governor, if you want to reply just quickly to this, please.
MR. ROMNEY: Yeah, I — I certainly do. I certainly do. I — I think it's interesting the president just said something which is that on the day after the attack, he went in the Rose Garden and said that this was an act of terror. You said in the Rose Garden the day after the attack it was an act of terror. It was not a spontaneous demonstration. (i got you this time. You think you can lie like me? i have been doing this my whole life. I am going to kill your Presidency in this one exchange. You never referred to this as terror. I watched Fox News)
PRESIDENT OBAMA: Please proceed. (i get the feeling i am going to enjoy this)
MR. ROMNEY: Is that what you're saying? (i am going to bury you so deep, you stupid Kenyan)
PRESIDENT OBAMA: Please proceed, Governor.(Let me see how much rope i can give him to hang himself)
MR. ROMNEY: I — I — I want to make sure we get that for the record, because it took the president 14 days before he called the attack in Benghazi an act of terror. (I got him. I said I three times. He is trapped. I am the President)
PRESIDENT OBAMA: Get the transcript. (Oh my. Hopefully after this debate Michelle will give me some. It was 6 days after the first one)
MS. CROWLEY: It — he did in fact, sir. (WTF is going on?. Is Mitt this stupid? If Mitt commits suicide on my show do i have enough liability insurance? Why did i agree to this shit? Let me help him out, move on from there buddy - you got your facts wrong)
So let me — let me call it an act of terrorism — (inaudible) — (Mitt, please move on. Dont dig further)
PRESIDENT OBAMA: Can you say that a little louder, Candy? (Laughter, applause.) (Oh Michelle)
MS. CROWLEY: He did call it an act of terror. It did as well take — it did as well take two weeks or so for the whole idea of there being a riot out there about this tape to come out. You are correct about that. (Why is Obama after me like this. Let us move on. This is embarassing. Hope Mitt can see i am throwing him a rope with that two week bit. Why did i agree to do this job again?)
MR. ROMNEY: (but but but. I used to close many deals at Bain and nobody came up and told me i was telling a lie. It was selling. why are these people mean like this? Where are the locusts when you need them?)
BIDEN: And I love my friend here. I — I'm not allowed to show letters but go on our website, he sent me two letters saying, "By the way, can you send me some stimulus money for companies here in the state of Wisconsin?" We sent millions of dollars. You know...RADDATZ: You did ask for stimulus money, correct?BIDEN: Sure he did. By the way...RYAN: On two occasions we — we — we advocated for constituents who were applying for grants. That's what we do. We do that for all constituents who are...BIDEN: I love that. I love that. This was such a bad program and he writes me a letter saying — writes the Department of Energy a letter saying, "The reason we need this stimulus, it will create growth and jobs." His words. And now he's sitting here looking at me.
In my 2011 tax returns i refer to USA as a Foreign Country. Now do you get why i did not thank the troops during my nomination acceptance speech?Explicit image available, join sdc.com to viewhttp://www.usnews.com/news/blogs/washington-whispers/2012/09/21/mitt-romney-calls-usa-a-foreign-country-in-his-tax-returns
Mitt Romney's trustee issued a statement today saying Romney overpaid on his taxes by not taking all the deductions legally available."I don't pay more than are legally due and frankly if I had paid more than are legally due I don't think I'd be qualified to become president"Mitt Romney, 29th July 2012 http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/transcript-david-muir-interview-mitt-romney/story?id=16881787&page=2Romney supporters: Your guy is saying he is not qualified to become President. We agree with him. Do you?
LL: From what I've seen then Romney acted in good faith as a Venture Capital company.No. Only in a handful of cases did they act as Venture Capital. Staples is one of them.Most of the items you listed (short time span with high returns) would not necessarily indicate vulturism, but perhpas just risk. But that aside, the types of things you would accuse Bain of in the "Vulture Capital" list there is no evidence of them doing. When did Bain mislead a banks to borrow with no intent to repay? When did Bain set up more companies for tax purposes than their competitors? There has been no bank come forward to make such a claim against Bain. There have been no tax charges leveled against Bain.You have missed the point - maybe i was not clear in explaining. It is not just risk. The most important difference is of course buying a company with the purpose of shutting it down (hence the term vulture) vs for continuing operations and resale. Also, there is a significant difference in how you consider employees. It is only in this sector (and probably small quant shops) that employees do not matter. Mitt's training wouldnt translate to say Manufacturing or Retail. Yes there are examples. Given the short term nature of deals and collusion with authorities or banks, it is in everyones interest to keep it quiet. Exceptions are when government is involved. Two such cases here1. FDIC getting squeezed by Mitt, negotiating based on a threat of shutting down Bain!!http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/the-federal-bailout-that-saved-mitt-romney-201208292. Romney's Italian Jobhttp://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-08-06/romney-persona-non-grata-in-italy-for-bain-s-deal-skirting-taxes.htmlThe reason why he will not release his tax returns are twofold1. More of the shady deals will get public2. He most likely used an IRS amnesty for tax evaders in 2009Even if he does not release his tax returns, and people are not able to find more instances such as the Italian Jobs and Federal bailout of Bain, Mitt's training is not going to go away.He will omit to mention the troops and warHe will explain that in a laundry list, troops and war they are fighting for us is not important.Unless he shies away from even giving interviews only to Fox, his character will keep trickling down
I'm left in the same place, the Bain accusation is a hollow political attack.
Now, the vulture capital list looks more like what Obama did with his cronies!
Solyndra? Tax avoidance, what about GE?
Here are the differences. This is based on personal experience of a few years. Someone who has much more depth in the industry may be able to give you more information.Venture capital companies invest with a time horizon typically of 2-3 years to shape up a company to be sold to other private investors or get them public. Operational improvement, capital restructuring (typically more debt and management fees), synergies with other portfolio companies (management, strategic direction, even shared services) are all levers used to improve company cash flows. They typically look for 5x to 10x returns. These guys are relatively public - Carlyle, TPG, KKR and today's Bain are examples. Continuing operations of the company is critical to the plan.Vulture capital companies look for opportunities where there are very temporary market inefficiencies and the company is not able to get to capital. The target companies tend to have some inherent value (typically in assets like land). Many times they take over the company's loans and start the squeeze - rates, terms etc. The typical way you get value out of it is through 1) influence with a regulatory agency of government, 2) influence with a large customer segment of the company, 3) additional leverage in negotiations as you are coming in with the position to shut down the company rather than continuing it. Time span is typically less than 2 yrs and 10x to 30x is what you are planning for.Given this background- Venture capitalist companies are very interested in the employees, as they want cooperation in turning around the company. Many times venture capitalist firms only put in a few personnel at the top (CFO, COO) and the rest are the original firm's employees. For vulture capital companies, employees are irrelevant, as they do not have much of an interest in continuing operations- Venture capitalist investments try to get the company to a healthy financial position so that it can be sold in a few years. Vulture capitalist companies are typically seeing a company that is going to be shut down within the year, so leveraging it to the hilt is what they would like to do. For doing that, they need banks to lend them assuming continuing operations. This may look fraudulent, but it is pretty much standard practice.- Venture capitalist firms take a risk, making bets on competitive strategy, technology, economy, product preferences etc and perform a valuable economic role. There are research papers that have looked at whether vulture capital provides any value and they do not.- Given the longer term (still only 3 yrs) nature of a venture capital investment, community, local government, employees etc are all important stakeholders. Not as important as the folks who provide the capital, but should be considered. For vulture capitalists there is nothing like that. It is sort of a hit and run.- Vulture capital firms tend to have huge tax departments, multiple times larger than that of a venture capital firm. This is due to capital struturing and tax avoidance as being primary value drivers. Vulture capital firms routinely set up 50+ companies to just complete one deal. IRS doesnt have people even to understand whether they have evaded taxes.This is where the difference in training and learning from business experience comes in. If Romney was say in a more traditional business segment, he wouldnt be omitting to mention the troops or the war in his speech. Or if he did omit, it would be more of a gaffe where he forgot. Not something that he thinks is logical. Anyways, your trial period is over. If you need more info, you need to pay :)Your observation on staples is good - dig further - why is a 25 year resume only showing a handful? The answer is that he has invested in ventures only a handful of times. The rest were all hit and run deals. Rumor is that (these things are all very secret-
LL: In the 25 years at Bain, his focus was on Vulture Capitalism, not Venture Capital. There are very few deals that he has done where he felt the need to make it sustainable - Staples is one of them. Highlighting that will not wipe away all those other deals.I have worked with both types of companies and the differences are night and day. Bain Capital under Romney was a vulture capital company most of the time.You are throwing up a lot of straw men out there. I did not say Bain or Junk Bonds were illegal or immoral. Can you point to where i did?To me, it is obvious why Romney wants to be the commander-in-chief, fails to acknowledge the troops or the wars in the speech asking for our votes. It is his training and learning from an industry that makes him ill-suited for the Presidency which involves worrying about impacts of decisions on people, community and the country. Not just numbers on a spreadsheet.The same training and learning leads him to ignore the impact on people when he says- Let Detroit go bankrupt- Let foreclosures run its course and hit the bottom- Let us not worry about bin LadenIf i start a company that needs to trade in junk bonds, will i consider Mitt Romney to lead it? MaybeWill i consider him to be the commander-in-chief? No
Sandy, I couldn't agree with you less."This election is all about creating a compassionate country where all the people share in the wealth of the nation" - "Share" - Doesn't that just mean using force take from one and give to another? That is not the same as charity, which is really what it is to share."Servant Leadership which enables the success of others and not just the 1%" - Obama has been leading from behind, although I'm not sure that is still Leadership. As long as we keep villifying the 1%, the succesful, there is no substantive policy debate. Obama has no plan for fattening the middle class, his only plans of entitlment growth put concrete boots on those in poverty."An Equitable Tax environment which rewards investments and innovation" - You don't mean equitable as in equal or flat? You mean a progressive tax rate where one group pays more than another. The top 10% are already paying 70% of the income revenue. So it really means, MORE progressive.
"Infrastructure investments to build a solid middle class" - How much of the Stimulus went toward and made it to 'infastructure"?"Immigration laws which promote an inclusive "big tent" policy" - Obama failed the hispanics when he could have passed comprehensive refortm when he had complete control, then later with Republicans willing to deal. He subverted the power of congress. I'm all for almost limitless work visas and very high permissable immigration, but Obama has failed."AND Community assistance, when needed by our less Privileged citizens." - Like Obama's failure to improve Medicaid or his massive defunding of Medicare? Food stamps instead of jobs is what I see.

I hate to keep disagreeing with you, but I'm not sure race or sex has anything to do with wisdom and judgement in poltical decisions or otherwise. Idiots and genuises abound in all races and both sexes.

Look at Obama's rescue package. Over 1/3 of it was dedicated towards non-stimulating tax cuts. The DNC is squarely neoliberal, as is the GOP - particularly the DLC.As for the Tea Party being astroturfed - seriously? It's considered an epitome of astroturfing around the world. The Guardian: http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/cifamerica/2010/oct/25/tea-party-koch-brothershttp://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php/Tea_PartyYou can dismiss the sources, but not their diligence.
Calling the tea party astroturf is parroting the most simplistic liberal spin used to discredit a successful political movement. You may wish to do some research on their impact on the mid-term elections. It was a reaction to debt, deficits, over regulation, and high taxes. Liberals will keep trying to rewrite history, but they can't rewrite the mid-term elections. Do you think the Occupy rapists will turn out for Obama during this election?
Which neoliberal policies am I against?To whit:- The tendency towards flat-rate taxation, which empowers oligopolies and oligarchy.- Unregulated free-marketism, that allows multinationals to pick and choose production centers on the basis of countries that treat their workers, and environments, worse.- The concept that market anarchy is somehow a blessing, in the face of 200 years of experience.- The concept that markets are self-regulating, in the face of 200 years of experience.- The concept that without regulation, a hard-working individual has a real chance, in the face of thousands of years of experience.- The concept that a corporation has the rights, yet not the obligations, and clearly not the mortality (nor the goals), or actual citizens.-The idea that basic and necessary services, and indeed products, should be in the hands of private enterprise, at the whim of the profit motive, when not amenable to true competition.- The fact that companies and the wealthy have a far louder voice in a democracy than a mere voting citizen.Want more?

"Hater how so?"I can smell it. It stinks! Obama may not be a huge success at home but at the very least he deserves great credit his Healthcare reform.
“Obama is popular, Rock Star Jesus”
“European Debt Crises? Failure”....Wtf are you bshiiting about? How in the name of fuck do you exoect Obama to solve a European ecnomoic problem when he’s already in the midst of trying to solve your own?
“Afghanistan..great job in spending more lives and more money, but a failure to achieve any goals of consequence” ...Funny how you people forget the biggest lie of 'em all and the hundreds and thousands of dead innocent Iraqi people as a result of the previous fucktards invasion. Swept under the carpet? Funny how you also conveniently forget to mention the thousands of dead US soldiers as a result of that mess. Yet now you conveniently want to divert the attention to Afghanistan and you want Obama to take all the flak for that. Youre a fickle fickle bunch. Lets also not forget that it was under his watch that you finally got Bin Laden hiding in his own back yard.Btw, To a large extent, it was Obama’s anti-war stance that won him the Democratic nomination. A month after taking office, he said the combat mission would end by August 31, 2010, with a transitional force of up to fifty thousand soldiers remaining in Iraq until the end of 2011 at the latest. This timetable was carried out successfully: the last U.S. combat brigades rolled into Kuwait in August, 2010, and the final members of the transitional force left on December 18th of last year, following a breakdown in negotiations about maintaining a U.S. presence.
“He was born a US Citizen, after that all he's wanted to do is fundamentally move America toward Socialist State, and I believe, beyond”...The words of an ignorant okie hater.
“With a President like this, who needs enemies?”...Classy!
“First, you are a fucking idiot, so its hard to just make up something else to call you”...Its clear you can get politicaly excited sometimes.
I've been observing your bs and agenda for the side s for a while and although you occasionally seem grounded, its clear youre poisoned. I could go on and on…

UPDATE at the end of the report-------------Officer #420: It was clear to me that the two guys i picked up next to Mr Romney's La Jolla residence were clearly on drugs. Here is their exchange that i recorded as supporting evidenceChong: This is fucking awesome man. Cant you see it? - There are cars on elevatorsCheech: What the fuck are you talking about man?Chong: Dude this stuff is too good. I see Cadillacs, 20 of them going up and down on elevatorsCheech: Wow. That is awesome. Look, is that a horse on top of those Cadillacs?Chong: Yes it is man. It is dancing. Why is it dancing on those Cadillacs? It is cute though.Cheech: Look at that underwear manAt this point, i intervened and took them to custodyUPDATE from Officer #420: On our way to the station we saw another caddilac with a dog strapped to the top of it. I swear i did not take any drugs and it was real. Given this new development, i decided to believe the two suspects and release them
Mitt is a man of action. He found a guy smoking pot - demanded that he stop. Mitt called the cops too. Mitt's opponenent has even admitted inhaling. Case closed.
On my personal investigation, here is what i found from the case report.

Seriously. Common sense says it is the President himself who authorized the damaging leaks for calculated political gain. Only the President could declassify Oylmpic Games (Stutnet program code name). Presidential meetings are held in the Situation Room because they involve our most sensitive security secrets. Sanger, the reporter who broke the story, said himself that his source for the “highly classified program" was the White House. As far as I can tell nobody has been discharged from the White House. Whom did Sanger get all this from? Who do you think leaked it, Obama himself, White House Aides, or Obama's own national security team? We're talking a handful of people are in Obama's inner circle. The President was able to say simply that he declassified the material and then no law was broken then. Until then it's treason at our highest level of government. I suspect he will claim after the election, one way or the other, they were not leaks but that the material was declassified. Then all we have is unprecedented declassification of active programs, personnel, and secrets.
In case folks have not noticed, Willard has added one more reason to become the President.He has brought unity to Palestinians and Israelis!!!. Let me explain.Mitt woke up on the first day of his trip to Israel and had this epiphany that Palestinian per capita GDP is lower than that of Israel's. Naturally, his smarts came into play and he inferred that it is the "culture that makes the difference".ahem. So if a group of people are richer than the other, it is because one of them is culturally inferior to the other. hmmm.Palestinians are outraged at this racist remark that they are culturally inferior. Israelis are outraged that Romney seems to be going with a stereotype of "Jews and money". Also, Israelis are not very fond of people who ascrible superiority to one group of people - they have historical reasons for that. Even Yitzhak Shamir (or Gold Meir or Bibi) to my knowledge has never claimed cultural superiority to Palestinians. Way to go, Willard.
PGX IS AS DELUSIONAL AS THE REST OF THE RIGHT AND UPTIGHT.FOX NEWS IS IN SUCH DENIAL THAT THEY STILL HAVE SARAH PAILIN AS A POLITICAL ANALYST "REALLY"?DICK CHENEY SURFACED FROM HIS CAVE AND NOT ONLY ENDORSED ROMNEY BUT STATED THAT JOHN MCCAINS APPOINTMENT OF PAILIN WAS WRONG.THE RIGHT STILL HOLDS MCCAIN IN HIGH REGARD EVEN THOUGH HE WAS READY TO PUT THAT BIMBO IN THE VP SEAT.HOW SCARY IS THAT.AND SPEAKING OF CHENEY, HAS ANYONE SEEN GWB,OR CONDALEEZA RICE,OR DONALD RUMSFELD??? HAVEN'T HEARD FROM THEM IN THE LAST 4 YEARSNOT ONE INTERVIEW,NOT ONE POLITICAL OPINION,NEVER SEE THEM ON FOX.AND YES I DO WATCH FOX ONLY BECAUSE IT IS FUNNIER THAN COMEDY CENTRAL.IS THERE A NEWS MEDIA OUT THERE THAT HAS THE COJONES TO CALL THESELOSERS OUT TO ANSWER SOME QUESTIONS THAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE MAY WANT ANSWERED.MITT,CHIP,BIFF ANY OF THESE NAMES COULD APPLY TO THIS ELITIST ROBOT.LOVE THE REPUBLICANS OUT THERE THAT ARE LIVING PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECKOR ON GOVT HELP,OR ON MEDICAID OR MEDICARE AND CONSIDER THEMSELVESPART OF THE 1%.THE JOB CREATORS ARE CREAING JOBS OVERSEAS.IF OBAMA IS A SOCIALIST HE IS A REALLY BAD ONE.
Vote for me for my foreign policy acumen. Look what I achieved in one day abroad. The Times of London reported "Mitt Romney casts doubt on London 2012 preparations"British Prime Minister insulted the headquarters of my religion - "We are holding an Olympic Games in one of the busiest, most active, bustling cities anywhere in the world. Of course it's easier if you hold an Olympic Games in the middle of nowhere"
Boris Johnson talked about me in front of 60,000 people in Hyde park (some people say mocked - all publicity is good publicity is what i say)I revealed a secret meeting with MI6, that was not to be revealed. I met this fellow who is their opposition leader and forgot his name. That is where my smarts came in handy - i called him "Mr Leader". The fellow's gratitude for me condescending to talk to him was amazing to see.Next i am off to Israel, to meet my old friend Bibi. See what he said about me recently“I remember him [Romney] for sure, but I don’t think we had any particular connections, I knew him and he knew me, I suppose.”This is what i meant when i claimed “Israel’s current prime minister is not just a friend, he’s an old friend”. Just a friend. The old was referring to Bibi being old, not the friendship.Why does everybody like me?
