Say What?

bad adviceIn case you're wondering here are Mr. Romney's exact words about the uninsured:

“We don’t have a setting across this country where if you don’t have insurance, we just say to you, ‘Tough luck, you’re going to die when you have your heart attack'. No, you go to the hospital, you get treated, you get care, and it’s paid for, either by charity, the government or by the hospital.”

“We don’t have people that become ill, who die in their apartment because they don’t have insurance.”

Yes, you can go to the emergency room. Just don't expect to get dialysis. Of course, you can always go to there if you have a hankerin' to die of neglect.

The sad fact is that 26,000  to 45,000 people die each year from a lack of health care. The Affordable Care Act will help to reduce that but not if Mr. Romney gets his hands on it.

Oh, That Mitt Paul.

paul ryan steasl your boots"There is a deeply held Beltway myth of Paul Ryan, Man of Big Ideas, and it dies hard. But, if there is a just god in the universe, on Thursday night, it died a bloody death, was hurled into a pit, doused with quicklime, buried without ceremony, and the ground above it salted and strewn with garlic so that it never rises again." -esquire magazine

"Joe Biden was right to laugh." - Rolling Stone

"Vice President Joseph Biden Jr. would not sit still for a parade of misleading and often blatantly untruthful descriptions of the state of the economy and the Republican prescriptions for it." - nytimes.com

"Joe Biden didn’t just win the debate. Joe Biden invented a new way to debate liars." - Eclectablog

"No, six studies did not debunk the Tax Policy Center’s finding on the Romney tax plan." - Washington Post

"Republicans call Biden 'disrespectful' for his actions Thursday night. I think there is nothing more 'disrespectful' than knowingly lying to the American public like Romney did." - New York Times


At the vice-presidential debate, Paul Ryan told 24 myths in 40 minutes.


Did Paul Ryan actually nickname his child "Bean" or did he just borrow the story from Kurt Cobain?


This past weekend Paul Ryan arrived too late to "help" at an Ohio soup kitchen so he pretended to wash already clean pots. In front of reporters.

Yes, he really did that.

Update: Now it turns out that Ryan wasn't really supposed to be there and simply bulled his way in. The head of the charity is PISSED.


Mitt Romney’s 800 vetoes as governor of Massachusetts shatter his bipartisan myth.


Fox News turns on Romney and criticizes his impossible tax cut math.

Republican Job Creation Update

republican job creationFor the past two years the Republican-led House had the chance to pass any number of jobs bills to get this country back on its feet. Instead, they did nothing, hoping that the lousy economy they were nurturing would ruin Mr. Obama's chance at reelection. That's the Republican way.

Ill person: Hello? I-I think I'm dying. Please... send help.

EMT: Okay, do you have insurance?

Sick person: Uh, no.

EMT: Then don't worry! Governor Romney says that no one in this country dies because they don't have insurance.

EMT: You know what's weird is that's the 26,000th time I've gotten that same call this year.
