    I guess it is official now? Romney To GOP: I Won’t Release More Tax Returns

    • July 17, 2012 at 11:04 pm

      He is still going to take a big hit! People will imagine just what is in there and why doesn’t he release them? He will lose 1 million votes on this subject alone!

    Maybe everyone is watching the video above over and over and forgetting to post … I am loving the video; awesome. Gosh, I just love him and Joe Biden is … well, he is the best, just the best … the best V.P. we could possibly have – he and the President act like brothers or best friends, or both. And then there is the kiss …..

      I know, I know .. that is what I mean – they act like brothers or long-time best friends. And the Prez knows all about V.P. Biden’s granddaughter and her basketball skills .. they just crack me up and make me love them more and more. The icing on the cake is that those two men have the best interest of every American in their hearts and minds every day! Lord, we thank you so much for the privilege of having these two men as the leaders of our country.

        I get the impression thatJoe still can’t believe he is the VP of the US and is having the time of his life.

        I also feel he’s amazed at the Obama family and that this experience has opened his eyes to being close to and relating to people of a different race.

          Actually two very loving families. I love Uncle Joe’s family from his grandma that passed not to long ago to his wonderful courtship with Miss Jill and how his sons are as precious to her as she is to them, to the beautiful, absolutely charming grandchildren. POTUS and VPOTUS are the epitome of down to earth, heart strong, family men with lots of intelligence and charisma that don’t seem to let it go to their heads. That’s what scare the loser class

          /end rant of sorts lol

        I love VP Biden. I have been following him since I was in college. I remembered when he stood in a little room to announce that he was ending his race for president. And he so lovingly mentioned his lovely mother who was sitting there in the front seat. It was such a touching moment. But there was something surrounding him in that space at the time that was such good vibes in that room at that moment. I felt it. I said to myself, “This is not the end for Joe Biden. His time is coming with such grace and peace.”

        Then when he was chosen by President Obama to be his running mate, I had my ‘Amen moment’. They were meant to be together. They are such a caring, down to earth POTUS and VPOTUS. And look how their families get along together. It is a beautiful team. (((((((((((((( Blessings and much love always be with them)))))))HZ

    Wisconsin!!!!!!!! You deserve better than this guy!!

    Yesterday, in video flagged by CREDO SuperPAC, a constituent approached Duffy outside a meeting in Wausau and attempted to ask him a question about the minimum wage. Duffy told the man he’s already held his single yearly town hall, got in his car, shut his door, and drove away, leaving the veteran tried to shout his question through the car’s rolled up window:

      He’s MY representative — replaced my beloved David Obey.

      I’ve mentioned before that the 2010 election never ended in Wisconsin. We are still getting weekly (at least) slick mailings pro-Duffy. Some come from the state, but a lot comes from various organizations outside the state. Very professional. Very well done. It’s tough to beat that kind of ongoing propaganda.

    Excellent appearance by Charles Blow and Joy Reid on @Lawrence. Charles Blow’s description of Obama Derangement Syndrome was superb. Joy Reid’s calling out of the unravelling of the GOP was also on the mark. Lawrence did a great rant on the toxic psyche of Rush Limbaugh, and his pock marked history. I knew lots of guys like Rush and Willard, on campus demonstrating in favor of the VietNam war and the draft but doing everything possible not to go themselves. Just like Dick Cheney and GWB.

    Well, goodnight. I’ve been up since 4:45, it was a super long day, but good. I am just too tired to read anymore. Sweet dreams everyone, see you in the morning!

      She’s speculates that Mitt might possibly have taken the 2009 amnesty that was offered to wealthy taxpayers who had money in offshore tax havens. Very interesting!!

    Emails show an investor’s ties to White House officials Valerie Jarret and Jim Messina. With Romney taking fire, the RNC shoots back with allegations that the White House allowed donors to feed at the green energy trough.

      They’re going to throw everything they have – every speck of dirt and mud. They know they’re losing. We have to stay focused.
