My Summary of the Republican Debate…

cornachio:

I started watching the REPUBLICAN DEBATE a little late but I kept track of the ridiculous statements I heard… There were A LOT of ridiculous statements…

-Santorum mentions himself in the 3rd person… Oh god this is going to be a long night…

-Perry, Mr. Government-can’t-create-jobs, talks about the jobs he “created” while in office.

-Perry says says Romney created private sector jobs all over the world. Romney’s former company is responsible for laying off tons of people in failing companies.

-Romney says G.W. Bush created jobs at a faster rate in Texas than Perry did. Good for you Romney. Fuck you Perry.

-Newt dodges question about healthcare by saying he won’t bash other republicans.

-Bachmann regurgitates some crap about how she can make gas $2 per gallon (which a president can’t do) and then says “Obama is strangling the economy.”

-Romney mentions all the reasons we should become energy dependent, but doesn’t mention solar or wind energy, just oil, coal, and offshore drilling.

-Paul says he would “absolutely” abolish minimum wage and that getting rid of it would be “good for the poor.”

-Rick Perry dodges question about his letter praising “Hilary-care” by bringing up Ronald Reagan.

-Paul and Perry start throwing around Reagan’s name (over and over…)

-Slideshow dedicated to Ronald Reagan (I can taste the vomit in my throat…)

-Perry backtracks on his ‘get rid of social security’ position.

-WTF Herman Cain is still in the race? I forgot he was alive.

-Romney called the president “a nice guy.” He just lost the elderly white people vote.

-Newt looks like an escaped garden gnome…

-Paul says 9/11 was the governments fault because they “didn’t let pilots have guns” (and the audience applauded…. WTF).

-Paul’s plan for bringing out troops home: Take away their air conditioning so they all go AWOL (sadly, this is the best plan republicans have for pulling out our troops).

Mitt Romney’s Chart of Job Losses. He has the “Obama Recovery” as the period between 2007 and 2009… Even though President Obama didn’t assume his office until January of 2009.  George W. Bush was still president in 2007 and 2008…

You, Jonathan, are the owner of wisdom.

Rick Perry Is Officially Blowing It
The key here is that the Republicans who influence mass opinion in the party seem to be noticing this, and speaking out.

"I think it expresses the frustrations that the American people feel that we had the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression, huge collateral damage all throughout the country, all across Main Street and yet, you’re still seeing some of the same folks who acted irresponsibly trying to fight efforts to crack down on abusive practices that got us into this problem in the first place. You know, the protesters are giving voice to a more broad based frustration about how our financial system works"

There are a lot of reasons to not elect Romney:

Priorities USA Action, a Super PAC that supports President Obama, released this absolutely brutal video this morning, going after the former Massachusetts governor on the economy. The flip-flops weren’t mentioned at all, because they didn’t have to be.

#must_watch

I swear, these presidential ads get more and more like summer action movie trailers every day.

This is why Obama will win in 2012
Voters '08: Man, Bush sucks. I don't like republicans.
GOP '08: We're not all crazy! Look at this maverick McCain! He's moderate! He's barely a republican at all!
Voters '08: Yeah... Ehh, I dunno... He's still a little too right-wing... We want someone less republican-ish.
GOP '12: Oh, ok we get now! You want someone more extreme than Bush, right?
Voters '12: Huh? That's not what we-
GOP '12: -Great!! Because we have tons of crazy to go around!!
Voters '12: .....

The GOP debate is basically like listening to several homophobic children taunt eachother
Romney: I hate gays more!
Santorum: No! I hate gays more!
Romney: Nooo way dude! I definitely hate gays more!
Santorum: Oh really? Well, I think you love gays!
Romney: Ewww yucky! Gays are gross!
Santorum: Gay boy! Gay boy! Mitty likes gay boys!
Romney: Stop it! Leave me alone! I hate gays!

You know you’re a conservative when you demand to see a black president’s proof of birth, but the fact that Mitt Romney STILL HASN’T released his tax returns doesn’t bother you.
What’s Mittens hiding? Well, has been an outspoken critic of raising the taxes of wealthy Americans (Mitt’s own net worth is about $250 million), and he opposes the “Buffet Rule.” The Buffet rule was proposed by the democrats to fix the loopholes in our tax system that allow multi-billionaires, like Mr. Warren Buffet, to pay a lower tax rate than their secretaries (and most average Americans).
So, chances are, Mitt Romney is hiding the fact that, even though he is worth $250 million, his tax rate is probably LOWER than mine, yours, and all the other working class people struggling to make ends meet.

The only fun part of having conservative family members is that you can all sit around and agree that nooooooobody likes Mitt Romney.

"Rick Santorum told a crowd in South Carolina today that Mitt Romney was, quote: “just a paler shade of what we have in the White House now”…. I heard that a guy in the back of the room stood up and said ‘Yeah, I thought that was the whole point?!’"

Romney admits economy better under Obama
Laura Ingraham: You've also noted that there are signs of improvement on the horizon in the economy.
Mitt Romney: Well, of course it's getting better. The economy always gets better after a recession. There's always recovery.
Laura: Isn't it a hard argument to make if you're saying "Ok, Obama inherited this recession, and he took a bunch of steps to try to turn the economy around, and now we're seeing some more jobs, but vote against him anyway." Isn't that a hard argument to make?
Mitt: Have you got a better one, Laura? [chuckles] It just happens to be the truth!
