Harold Meyerson (Washington Post): What Romney’s moderation conceals

….. While Romney has become a general-election tabula rasa, he sits atop what may be the most radical major political party in American history. Regardless of Milquetoast Mitt’s positions, a government with a Republican president and Republicans in control of the House and Senate would use its budget-reconciliation powers to defund or repeal not only the health-care guarantees and financial regulations that Obama signed into law but also much of the education funding and regulatory safeguards on which Americans have depended for decades.

The radicals who dominate the Republican Party have entertained Romney’s turn to the center as a necessary electoral expedient. The day after a Romney victory, their blitzkrieg will begin — leaving the moderate Mitt of the general election to historians specializing in short-lived phenomena.

NYT Editorial: In Monday night’s debate, Mitt Romney echoed other Republican politicians, saying that under President Obama’s economic policies, the United States is “heading toward Greece.” …

That bizarre comment, sadly, is no surprise in a campaign that has parted ways with the facts … What is more disturbing is that the comment displays willful ignorance about the lessons of Greece, and such ignorance can only lead to bad policy decisions at home. The lesson that should be learned from Greece is that its fiscal mess has been made far worse by severe budget cuts.

…. Mr. Obama could make his jobs plan, introduced last September but blocked by Congressional Republicans, part of the budget package to be negotiated after the election, when politicians must agree on tax increases and spending cuts to avoid the so-called fiscal cliff.

Mr. Romney’s agenda is missing a direct focus on jobs, foolishly relying instead on high-end tax cuts and deregulation to help the recovery. And he and his party continue to insist on premature deficit reduction that, in a fragile economy, is the real road to Greece.

    Good morning every one. I voted early yay
    I live in a very red neighborhood in Fox Valley Wisconsin among CEOs, General Managers, Dealership owners- you get the drift. Every time I go to the grocery store I see the headquarters of John Birch Society. Some residents in the area still celebrate Joe McCarthy along with the great magician Houdini. There are museums dedicated to both men in Appleton. I can remember when we moved here 25 years ago, while at the grocery store a little boy about three years old pointing at us telling loudly “look at those people mommy” . We couldn’t stop laughing. I think it was the first time that little boy seen a family with a brown skin color. We have come a long way since then. Now one of my neighbors is a beautiful black family and few houses down the road we have a oriental couple and the area is much more diverse and trending purple with a little bit towards red. In 2008 my husband wouldn’t let us put an Obama/Biden sign in our front yard. This time he was one who was very eager to put one. This is the guy who voted for Bush. Two ladies in the house converted him to be a staunch democrat. Who says girls don’t have power, it is soft but still effective. We voted yesterday. That is two votes for PO from Fox Valley area. Polling station was busy. I feel a little nostalgic and sad that I won’t be able to vote for him again. Oh well

I LOVE how crazy it is at the polls on election day! I always get there SUPER early and stand in line in the dark with people, cup of coffee in hand – there’s just so much energy there.

    My political take today is this is lucky 13 days til the election. Pay no mind to all of the kitchen sink strategies that we’ll hear from now on. There are some new emails on Beghazi, they’re shiny objects, stay focused. The race is tight, but we got this. It’s the ground game folks. Let’s get going.

    Global Index Praises U.S. As ‘Sole Bright Spot’ In Sluggish World Economy

    By Joe Conason

    ———————————-

    Unemployment is still too high, income is still too low, and the recovery is still too slow – but the United States is faring considerably better than other developed nations against the threat of a renewed recession and remains “the brightest spot in the world economy,” according to the latest indicators tracked by the Financial Times and the Brookings Institution. Known as TIGER, or Tracking Indices for the Global Economic Recovery, the comprehensive data report compiled by the London-based business daily and the centrist Washington think tank provides a factual context for the U.S. presidential debate.

    Favorable comparison with other nations, in a faltering world economy, may reinforce President Obama’s argument that his policies are working despite jobs statistics that remain deeply troubling. Moreover, criticism of Obama by Republican Mitt Romney may well be regarded as less credible if the U.S. economy is in fact performing better than every other developed country — especially those pursuing the austerity policies advocated by Romney and his running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan.

    I just met a wonderful woman who told me she is a Republican and former state Senator from Indiana. She last ran in 1996 and was chosen by the GOP to run for congress in 1998, but declined at her family’s urging. She is now 80 years old. She told me that the Republican party has been taken over by radicals like Murdouck and was devastated when Lugar lost the primary in Indiana to this weasel. She lives in a very affluent area in town (Naples, FL) and knows many R’s who feel the way she does who will be voting for PBO because Romney is a liar and cannot be trusted. The number one issue with her and those who feel the same is Supreme Court appointments followed by the radical women’s health views of the GOP. I cannot tell you how wonderful her words were to my ears! She also recounted an experience at the local Walgreen’s in their upper class neighborhood the other day where there were 5 people in line to check out and started talking amongst themselves. All 5 were R’s and all 5 admitted they are voting PBO this year! But said so in secrecy because they would be shuned if the other neighbors found out their plans. She said she was stunned at their candor in the Walgreen’s line. I am so heartened by meeting her, we even hugged twice! She was thrilled to hear that I volunteer for the PBO campaign and shared that she has taken it upon herself to register people and is driving them to the polls when early voting begins here on Saturday! Woot! Woot!

      I do believe that there is a lot of undercover support for PBO. When I see rising numbers “unaffiliated” and “independent” voter registrations, I think at least some of that reflects this support. It’s sad that it has to be covert, but it is what it is.

        Collier County is a very red district, so this Walgreen’s story really is telling. I bet there are 100’s of thousands of women R’s who will vote Dem and are not being forthcoming to their R spouses. Trust me, among the evangelical crowd in this area, the women folk go to the churches of their husband choice and vote (or say they are) R to please their men folk….in 2012. Sad but true.

    PAUL RYAN NOT FIT TO BE VICE-PRESIDENT — OR PRESIDENT (Just check out the accompanying picture, need I say more?)

    By Madonna Gauding – Published: October 22, 2012

    ————————————

    After the vice-presidential debate, I watched MSNBC’s coverage of a focus group of undecided voters. One young man, who was on the fence before the debate, after hearing the exchange between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan, made up his mind to vote for President Obama. His decision rested solely on his assessment that Paul Ryan was not fit to be vice-president because he was not be qualified to assume the presidency.
    .
    .
    There are other reasons to deny Paul Ryan the vice-presidency. One of his most troubling character flaws is that he is a serial liar—from his exaggeration of his marathon running times, to his pretending to wash dishes at a closed soup kitchen, to the six “non-partisan studies” that, supposedly, confirm the validity of his budget figures. The unnamed “six non-partisan studies” Ryan cited in the debate (also used by Romney and his surrogates) were exposed as bogus by none other than Chris Wallace on Fox News. Two of the “studies” were blog posts by a Romney advisor, and the others were manufactured at conservative think tanks. The truly non-partisan Congressional Budget Office concluded that the real intent of the Ryan Budget is to eliminate most of the federal government by 2050.

    Ryan’s convention speech was equally riddle with misrepresentations and falsehoods. On Medicare, the stimulus, the closing of the Wisconsin GM plant, the 2011 credit downgrade, debt, the Affordable Care Act, and a host of other topics, Ryan’s mendacity was breathtaking.

    http://www.occasionalplanet.org/2012/10/22/paul-ryan-not-fit-to-be-vice-president-or-president/

    =========================NOTE=====================================

    There is not enough time to document the many reasons why MITT ROMNEY is not fit for the presidency. But one of the biggest reasons is that he picked PAUL RYAN as his running mate. Romney’s first major decision as a presidential candidate speaks volumes about his judgment.

    Paul Ryan is not qualified to be a heartbeat away from the presidency. It is horrifying that he is even a congressman. His claim to fame is his radical views on women’s reproductive rights, his devotion to Ayn Rand, P90X, and his draconian budget. He is the budget committee chairman, but he is still working out the numbers for his budget. And let’s not forget those two bills he passed in 13 years (naming a post office and modifying excise taxes on ARROWS). He says his foreign policy experience is that he has voted to send men and women to war.

    It has been reported that Paul Ryan was named the biggest brown-noser by his senior class. Not surprising, I can certainly believe he was a brown-noser. He has managed to convince the mainstream media that he is a wonk and a serious budget guy. How this man got this close to the White House should be alarming to everyone in this country. To make matters worse, Paul Ryan attended the meeting on the night of PBO’s inauguration where the GOP decided block everything the new president tried to do. And Ryan has been joined at the hip with Boehner and Cantor obstructing PBO every step of the way. I still can’t get over the recklessness of the debt limit debacle. There is no seriousness of purpose with these clowns.

    BTW, Crystal Ball was on The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell last night and she made an encouraging observation. She said she had been talking to some REPUBLICANS who are “ALARMED” that Paul Ryan on the ticket. They just don’t think he is qualified. Everyone should be alarmed. With two weeks to go before the election, I certainly hope there will be more focus on this incredibly weak and dangerous ticket.

    ===================================================================

      October 24, 2012 at 2:15 pm

      I saw Crystal Ball saying that last night, and she mentioned that she thought a bigger deal should be made of this. The fact that Paul Ryan conjured up that fake charity visit, when nobody was expecting a charity visit from him in the first place, tells us who this person is. I can’t even call him a “man”. He lies when he doesn’t have to lie. And that speaks to the emptiness of his character – he’s a charlatan. A con man. That’s who he is. And he has no business being a member of the US Congress, let alone a candidate for Vice President and a heartbeat away from the Presidency. No business at all.

    A Utah Republican fundraiser charged with sexually assaulting women he met online committed suicide on Tuesday, the Salt Lake Tribune reported.

    Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill said Greg Peterson died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound at the very same Heber, Utah cabin where he hosted political events and allegedly raped at least two of his five alleged victims.

    Peterson, 37, was facing 25 charges of assault, rape and kidnapping related to attacks on the women. If convicted, Peterson could have been sent to prison for the rest of his life. Peterson was released from jail on Friday after posting $2 million in bond.

    Utah authorities charged Peterson with the crimes in July and said he met several of his alleged victims on Mormon dating websites. The attacks allegedly took place in March, July and December of 2011 and April 2012. It wasn’t clear when the fifth attack allegedly took place.

    As TPM reported, one 2011 Peterson event featured Utah Sens. Orrin Hatch (R) and Mike Lee (R), Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R) and Gov. Gary Herbert (R).

    ROMNEY’S DISDAIN FOR FOREIGN POLICY

    ====================================

    Romney’s disdain for foreign policy risks Bush-level disaster

    Rachel Maddow expresses her outrage at Mitt Romney’s apparent lack of interest in America’s foreign policy and national security with his last minute reversal of policy on Afghanistan and not mentioning veterans at all in the third presidential debate. She cautions that no president has the luxury of choosing not to have a foreign policy presidency.

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26315908/#49528194

    Romney signals he’s not serious about Commander-In-Chief

    Dan Rather, managing editor of “Dan Rather Reports” on AXS TV talks with Rachel Maddow about the impression Mitt Romney gives with his disinterest in foreign policy that he does not take the role of Commander-In-Chief seriously.

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26315908/#49528266

    • October 24, 2012 at 11:04 am

      There’s a video out there in which Robme states he can just “grab one of the folks over at the State Dept. to do foreign policy”. He basically said there’s guys over there who’ve been working over there for years and knows more about to help him make decisions. This atitutde is the same as the last businessman that was the commander-in-chief and look what happened. I was flipping channels this morning and saw the demon spawn child of Dick Cheney on Faux Noise spreading her foreign policy nonsense.

    One of my exciting stories …I have a childhood girlfriend who lives in Florida who has 3 sons & 2 D-I-Ls. 1 son & wife are away as
    missionaries in Africa,so when I asked her about them voting they did not have any info how to. I quickly E-mailed them the Gottavote.com
    website so those two votes are on their way. I assumed the ones living here were up to date, but taking nothing for granted as Flotus tells us,
    I sent my friend the website just in case the others needed it. Well would’nt you know a few days ago my cell rings, and her other sons
    called in desperation saying they know they waited too long but their Mom (my friend) told them to call me because I am the go-to person
    for info. They were able to request and complete absentee ballots. Now these are all 5 FLORIDA votes for PBO…plus my girlfriend and her
    husband….7 Florida votes. That’s like 7 nuggets of gold since FLA. is soooo important.

    As PBO and Flotus keep saying talk to friends and family, just don’t assume that everyone is up to date.

    I still volunteer making phone calls at a DNC office since I am not close to OFA offices, so that’s an option for anyone in my situation.

    The last 2 days I volunteered, we were calling voters and reminding them to send in their absentee ballots. A lot of them said that they
    have already done so or were about to do it. Although I am in the blue state of New Jersey, my area where I live is veeery red. So we
    have to keep at it.

    Have a blessed day everyone. Let’s keep moving FORWARD with our wonderful President.

    I was planning to boycott it when they were going to leave President Obama out of the film, but if he’s back in the film, then I’ll watch it. How on earth did they think they could do a film about OBL and NOT include the Commander in Chief who had the balls to order the mission in the first place??
