      Yes, because it tells it like it is. These are real people, and I don’t believe anyone trying to stop the campaign from highlighting this aspect of Romney’s business can really stop the facts. The families involved and thier friends KNOW Bain/Mitt’s character.

    Racist Prick is now “Massively Sorry” — this is the idiot who tweeted shit about Muamba. Drunk doesn’t cut it, sonny:

    Liam Stacey, who has been released from prison after serving half of his 56-day sentence, was told not to return to Swansea University’s campus.

    Speaking after leaving prison, 21-year-old Stacey expressed deep sorrow for what he had done, saying he had been drunk, and spoke of his shock that his abuse had gone “nationwide”. He said his comments had been “disgusting”.

    Stacey sparked an outcry following Muamba’s cardiac arrest in March when he tweeted: “LOL, Fuck Muamba. He’s dead.” Other Twitter users immediately criticised Stacey, prompting him to post further offensive and racist comments. He branded some people who censured him as “wogs” and told one to “go pick some cotton”. Stacey was quickly traced by police, arrested and jailed by magistrates in Swansea.

    He was also suspended from university, where he was a final-year biology student. The university has now imposed a full suspension until the end of the academic year. Stacey, from Pontypridd, south Wales, will be allowed to sit his final exams as an external candidate next year. But even if successful he will not be invited to the graduation ceremony.

    A university spokesman said: “We take the actions of this student very seriously, which is why he is no longer part of our campus community.”

    In an interview with BBC Wales’s Week In Week Out programme, which is being broadcast on Tuesday, Stacey said he was “massively sorry” for what he had done.

      I’m so glad that these people aren’t tolerating this evil anymore. There was way too much silence over the racist attacks against the President, and I think some of it was because people weren’t used to seeing such blatant racism from people in authority. The GOP actually encouraged that crap, by saying they weren’t sure about the President’s birthplace, and by inviting those racists to the capital under the guise of the Tea Party. Once the racists starting feeling comfortable in the sunlight, it got worse. Now we’ve got to drive them back into their caves, and this type of reaction to this racist bully in Swansea helps to begin that process. When all the tea baggers are removed from Congress, then the process will be well on its way. These people think it’s ok to do what they do, even when kids are watching and learning that behavior. They won’t change – that’s why they just have to be driven back into the dark where they live.

      Darn you twitter and wordpress….anywho
      Tom Corbett’s approval is 37/50, down from 37/43 in November. Obama would lead 49-43 if he was on ticket. I think that’s what is going to do in Mittens. From Pa, to FL to OH…these GOP govs have some terrible numbers. And they have all endorsed Mittens. All the O team has to do is run commercials of Mittens and the GOP govs…No amount of Rove infested ads will change peoples’ perceptions of their own governors.

        The fact that they think an endorsement from Dick Cheney is something to crow about says volumes for how far down they’ve fallen in the things they value. He’s recognized worldwide as a war criminal who is being sought out to stand trial in the Hague. He’s connected to the injuring and killing of military personnel through his company, Halliburton. He’s drained billions from this country via his connections with the war in Iraq and the various contractors. He has attempted to disrespect the President from the beginning. He defends torture. He achieved nothing positive in his life, from what it appears, and his daughter is a major loser.

        You are so right, LOL. These governors are destroying the Republican brand and showing everyday what hell life would be like under a Republican president.

    Asked whether Bain “practiced good or bad ethics,” Warner said, “I think Bain Capital was a very successful business. I think they got a good return for their investors. That is what they were supposed to do.” Republicans quickly seized on the comment, blasting it out to their press list.

    But Warner then elaborated on his point in a way that could undercut Romney’s campaign message.

    “I think when you’re in public life, though, what you’ve got is a different time horizon,” Warner said. “The notion that everything in government is exactly the same way that it is in business, they’re different time horizons when you’ve got to invest for the long haul, when you’ve got to actually do the kind of early stage investing, whether in preschool, whether its in K-12, whether it’s in infrastructure that don’t pay back quarter to quarter.”

    And here’s South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn:

    Rep. Jim Clyburn defended the Obama campaign for attacking Mitt Romney’s tenure at Bain Capital, implying Tuesday that the former Massachusetts governor was involved in “raping companies.”

    “This is not an attack on free enterprise. I want say to you, I don’t take contributions from payday lenders. I refuse to do that. That’s free enterprise,” Clyburn (D-S.C.) said on MSNBC’s “Jansing and Co.” “There’s something about that enterprise that I have a problem with. And there’s something about raping companies and leaving them in debt and setting up Swiss bank accounts and corporate businesses in the Grand Caymans. I have a real serious problem with that.”

    Time for a Meeting with Warner and any other Dem who has a problem! Jeesh! This is getting messy!

      Jovie, after Harvard Law School Mark Warner worked on the Hill. Through contacts and knowledge developed on the Hill he invested in early tech companies including start-up cell phone companies. He then formed a venture capital company, Columbia Capital in Alexandria, VA which still exists. It is estimated he is worth $250 million. He has never been a vulture capitalist, but his sentiments lean towards people like Willard. After accumulating his fortune he went into elective politics. He is super smart and super ambitious.

    Damn, this is beyond criminal:

    Study finds one-third of malaria drugs ‘fake’

    More than one-third of malaria drugs used around the world, particularly in Southeast Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa, are either fake or bad quality, a new study has claimed.

    “These findings are a wake-up call demanding a series of interventions to better define and eliminate both criminal production and poor manufacturing of antimalarial drugs,” Joel Breman, of the Fogarty International Center at the US National Institutes of Health (NIH), said on Tuesday.

    “The economic incentives for criminals of drug falsification surpass the risks involved in their production and sale,” stated the study, which was published in the Lancet Infectious Diseases journal.

    [SNIP]

    Malaria killed 655,000 people in 2010, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO), the United Nation’s health body.

    Currently, the disease kills an estimated 2,000 children each day in Africa, while some 3.3 billion people worldwide are at risk of getting infected.

    According to the WHO, approximately 200,000 malaria-related global deaths could be prevented by clamping down on the production of counterfeit medications.

    PPP – most accurate pollster in the U.S. very recent swing state polls show PBO up by 8 in PA, 7 in OH, 10 in Iowa . MSM spin -” but, but but.. Gallup tracking (junk) poll says it’s even………” (today) Ignore national tracking polls, in fact ignore all national polling. If you must watch polls, pay attention to accurate pollsters like PPP and only state polls. The election takes place state by state in electoral college. And PBO is looking very good in the states that he needs. Until the day comes when we throw out the electoral college system, that is how it’s done.

      Exactly…anytime Romney is in Michigan, this means he is not in Ohio, and anytime he is in Ohio, he is not in Florida. There are a number of ways the Prez can get to 270, and very few for Romney to get to 270. They might as well write off the West, (NM, NV, CO) all that is Dem. He might have to campaign in AZ with McGramps. If anyone knows about corporate raiders and profiteers it is those in the midwest who have seen their manufacturing jobs shipped overseas. The same jobs Romney wanted to cut when he told Detroit it could go to hell, I mean go bankrupt.

    Rove’s superpac is ready to release a 25 million ad buy against PBO. The ad is put together by the same guy responsible for the Willie Horton ad of the 80’s. Buckle up, buttercups….don’t fall, y’all….it’s gonna get slicker than owl poop around here.

    Gotta say it: this ad is not effective AT ALL.
