Birth Certificates and Tax Returns…

24 Jul

Starring Mitt Romney as the Mad Hatter.

I am rather bemused at the Mitt (I’m a liar, Romney) and his attack on Democrats asking for an explanation of his tax returns.  The hypocrisy is palpable.  There are still Tea Baggers that are wanting a full investigation of President Obama’s birth certificate.

The whole birth certificate debacle, rooted in racism, is such a horrible mar on our country’s history and leaves me embarrassed for those bigoted Tea Baggers that started this bitter brew of tea.  Romney, who seems to currently be playing The Mad Hatter hosting the Tea Party, is hiding his tax returns and thus creating quite the mystery as to the reason for refusing disclosure and transparency, leaving Americans to wonder why.

Could it be that Americans will discover even more incriminating information about Romney’s Bain Capital? Might we discover that Romney has made significant donations to overturn Roe v. Wade?  Might it be something as nefarious as we will learn that Romney donated millions of dollars to Prop Hate  in California, thus discriminating against the LGBTQ community?

Ultimately, I’m exceedingly sad that many Americans are not able to see through the very shallow, vapid, and narcissistic Romney, who has made it clear he wants to be President just to satisfy his enormous ego and is willing to whore himself out at all cost to reach his goal–not the qualities of a world leader.  Unlike President Obama who has already established himself as a world leader who leads with integrity and a sense of compassion for the marginalized and underserved. President Obama’s endorsement of marriage equality demonstrates the strength of his character and his dedication to civil rights! The Romneybot’s shallow pandering, on the other hand, should leave voters wondering when they’ll wind up being the next thing strapped to the top of his car…

    I’m guessing more nefarious than we can even imagine.

    I know that neither side of the political arena is blameless. But the one thing that the “right” side tends to do quiet well, is blame everyone else for the problems of this country while not living the perfect life of peace and harmony they champion so loudly. They call for the protection of traditional marriage (whatever that is) while having countless number of marriages among themselves. If they want to lead the charge for this country being the best it can be and needing it to return to a life of ‘Leave It to Beaver’ and ‘Father Knows Best’ (which in their wildest dreams will never happen) they need to stop being so hypocritical. And begin to be the caring, compassionate and loving party they claim they are. Yeah right!

      It is the hypocrisy of the Republican party that bothers me so greatly. Specifically with Mitt Romney, who has no vision for the country–he just wants to be President. At least Obama has a vision.

    Mitt Romney has a vision, it’s just narrowed to the 1%. IF this man did (by some radical reason) become President, I wonder, which part of America and which Americans he would be President over?

    • Michael Hulshof-Schmidt July 24, 2012 at 11:53 am #

      Exactly! This is where I grow very flummoxed. Do people not know he is part of the 1% and has stated he intends on protecting the 1%?

    I don’t understand people that know this mans intentions and yet support him. Do they think he is just kidding and he will be a different man in the White House? It’s like in the election of 2010 and all these republican Governors were elected. When they began doing exactly what they said they would do, the citizens of these states were shocked. People are like the proverbial sheep and the shepherd is Mitt….and the slaughter is the result of him being elected!

      Tom, I love this: “People are like the proverbial sheep and the shepherd is Mitt….and the slaughter is the result of him being elected!”

    “The whole birth certificate debacle, rooted in racism…”

    You couldn’t be more dead-on. A lot of my family were all about the whole birth certificate thing, and they would go on and on and on about how it had nothing to do with race. I call Bullshit. Romney votes aren’t even for Romney. They’re just trying to get a white man back in office

      Will, I fear you are absolutely right, which is quite sad. I suspect it is not very comfortable to have these conversations with your family, but you are demonstrating great integrity and strength of character.
