My President called Romney a ‘bullshitter.’

Image from

Yeah, he did. From an interview in Rolling Stone:

We arrived at the Oval Office for our 45-minute interview … on the morning of October 11th. … As we left the Oval Office, executive editor Eric Bates told Obama that he had asked his six-year-old if there was anything she wanted him to say to the president. … [S]he said, ‘Tell him: You can do it.’ Obama grinned. … ‘You know, kids have good instincts,’ Obama offered. ‘They look at the other guy and say, “Well, that’s a bullshitter, I can tell.”‘”

Cool. Damn cool. If I wasn’t going to vote for him before, I’d definitely vote for him now. Up above, my dad is grinning ear to ear. And as Joe Biden will probably congratulate the President: “This is a big fucking deal!”

ADD: You know, people complain all the time about how politicians always lie. Then Obama TELLS THE TRUTH, and people complain about THAT!

Reblog: An Open Letter to Ann Coulter

Monday night, after the debate, hatemonger Ann Coulter tweeted the following:

On Tuesday this man, John Franklin Stephens, posted An Open Letter to Ann Coulter. Stephens has more class in his little finger than Coulter has ever had in her pathetic excuse for a life.

After I saw your tweet, I realized you just wanted to belittle the President by linking him to people like me.  You assumed that people would understand and accept that being linked to someone like me is an insult and you assumed you could get away with it and still appear on TV.

I have to wonder if you considered other hateful words but recoiled from the backlash.

Well, Ms. Coulter, you, and society, need to learn that being compared to people like me should be considered a badge of honor.

No one overcomes more than we do and still loves life so much.

Come join us someday at Special Olympics.  See if you can walk away with your heart unchanged.

John Franklin Stephens, you rock.

That is all.

Romney did his job last night.

Sweating like Nixon.

He’s led even the stupidest of the undecided voters to believe he is really every bit as smart as Obama. How? By agreeing with Obama on just about everything.

Even so, he will cull some meager votes from this strategy. Why? Because by embracing everything Obama has done, he avoided the “extremist” label in some voters’ minds.

Rev. Al Sharpton on MSNBC took the “embracing” idea further. Sharpton said that Romney looked like a boxer who, rather than trying to land a punch, instead wrapped his arms around his opponent to try and last until the bell.

Environmental advocate Van Jones said on CNN: “If the debate went on thirty minutes longer, Romney would have endorsed Obama.”

Naturally The Rude Pundit weighed in. “Romney lost big time. It was embarrassing at times how little a major party candidate seemed to know or care about the rest of the world. Romney acted like Sarah Palin, a talking point machine who couldn’t string together a proposition or thought. He looked like Nixon on meth, sputtering, useless, and, goddamn, so sweaty. He tried to shift to moderate mode again, but this time Obama was ready and he repeatedly called Romney out on it, at times eviscerating Romney. He tried to shift to domestic policy, and Obama went right along with him, kicking his ass every step of the way.”

Bill Maher texted: “Mitt keeps taking issue with being criticized tonight – did they tell him this is a debate?”

And writer BeyondGeography posted this on Democratic Underground:

“The irony of Romney’s mail-it-in performance last night is, if he were to become President, he’d spend a lot more time on foreign policy than he presently believes. All Presidents do. He has no interest or ability to even approach competence in foreign policy. He is an impatient, often intolerant man. The outside world would find the manipulator extremely easy to manipulate. Their defiance would unnerve him. Hopefully, enough registered voters show up on Nov. 6 to spare him, and us, this pain.”

Mittens is like a long-lost relative who shows up at a funeral to announce he’s really been a loyal family member all along, and so the inheritance should be his. Don’t let him take it.

Romney on single-parent families (and AK-47s?)

Last night, answering a question about his stance on automatic weapons, Romney curiously explained that a child raised by a single parent has a poor chance of life success.

While he was sharing the stage with one.

Check President Obama’s expression: “Oh, really…?!”

Plus, Romney dissed his running mate. Ryan’s father died when he was a teen, and his mother raised him as a single parent.

That is all.

When you’re in a debate with President Obama, and you’re making your point, and Obama tells you, “Please proceed, Governor….”

You are well and truly fucked.

Just Keep Going, Buddy, Don’t Let Me Stop You

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.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Please proceed.

MR. ROMNEY: Is that what you’re saying?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Please proceed, Governor.

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.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Get the transcript.

MS. CROWLEY: It – he did in fact, sir. So let me – let me call it an act of terrorism – (inaudible) –

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Can you say that a little louder, Candy? (Laughter, applause.)

Tonight’s debate in one pic:

Says it all.


Here’s what happens when you get a hug from the Vice-President.

Image from

Read about it here. Damn allergies. My eyes are tearing up again. Just like last time.

“The President and Vice President have gone above and beyond for people like me and my family, and they stand for things like keeping school affordable. My older brother uses Pell Grants and college loans to be able to afford school, and I’m thankful for that. I want to be able to go to Florida State University one day, and now I know I don’t have to worry about being able to afford it. Life would not be the way it is today if they hadn’t taken office four years ago.

The Vice President approached me and I was introduced to him as a ‘special guest.’ I was overwhelmed with different emotions. I had this impulse to hug him, so I did. And I cried. I think I even got tears on the Vice President’s suit jacket! I met someone who has done so much for my family without even knowing us, and that was an incredible, overwhelming feeling. I felt like he really heard me, like he knew who I was. I am hugging the man who will help me and help our President move forward.”

Joe rawks. You say different? Bring it.

Then and now

Costco co-founder calls Romney out.

Image from

Costco co-founder Jim Sinegal took the stage in Charlotte last night, and sought to refute Republican criticism that Obama is anti-business. He said he was supporting Obama because he’s “making an economy built to last.” Quote:

“In Tampa last week, we heard all about job creators. But at our company, we recognize job creation requires time and investment and commitment to the long-term. It requires companies that plant and grow, not executives who reap and run. That’s how we do our part to build an economy that lasts.”

Oh snap! Time to get that Costco membership. Nearest one to me is about an hour’s drive.

Last week Ann Romney said that Mittens bought a few shirts at Costco. I can already hear the Repos’ heads exploding today.
