John Fugelsang Asks Dan Savage: “Is Mitt Romney anti-gay, or just 47 percent anti-gay?” – Video

On Joy Behar’s Current TV show Say Anything on Thursday, comedian John  Fugelsang (Hot Straight Political Comedian Crush!) was filling in and in an interview with the awesome Dan savage of the It Get’s Better Project who recenly wiped the floor with NOM’s anti-gay Brian Brown in an online YouTube debate asked Dan:  Is Mitt Romney anti-gay, or just 47 percent anti-gay?”

Dan’s answer:

“I think he’s 100 percent anti-gay. I don’t make a distinction between an honest  bigot and a dishonest bigot. The bigotry’s just the same…whether someone  punches you in the nose because they really hate you, or they punch you in the  nose because they want to impress people who hate you, you still have a broken  goddamn nose.”

The View’s Elisabeth Hasselbeck Loves Her Some Mitt Romney, Warns of ‘Dependence Day’ Holiday

The ladies of The View went to town on Mitt Romney ‘s amazingly insensitive and disgusting “47 percent’ video.

Well all of them except resident Repub-bo Elizabeth “I was on a reality show and married rich” Hasselbeck who must have been up all night to think up her quote of “I also think there’s a general feeling that with more and more people becoming  dependent on government that by next July we could perhaps be celebrating  “Dependence Day” and not “Independence Day” in this nation.”

The ladies were not amused.  Even Baba!

Mitt Romney’s Campaign Manager Is Spinning Like A Whirling Dervish On Crack

Mitt Romney’s campaign manager is working hard to cover-up and spin Mitt’s campaign killing secret video and keep is GOP ass employed before he becomes part of the so-called “47%”:

Mitt Romney has a very different idea. He knows that we need to foster growth and create wealth, not redistribute wealth, if our economy is to grow the way it has in the past. We don’t have to look far to see the failure of President Obama’s approach. We can look at his record. First came the stimulus – and nearly a trillion dollars of government spending later, the unemployment rate is almost 3 percentage points higher than where President Obama projected it would be. Then came Obamacare. Even though it has yet to take effect, businesses are already grappling with the new taxes, regulations, controls, and bureaucracies that are impeding hiring and adding to our uncertainty. We are experiencing the worst economic recovery since the Great Depression. More Americans than ever before are in poverty or on food stamps. President Obama’s government-heavy policies have not worked, and we need a new direction. Mitt Romney places his trust in the American people, not in government.

Lies, lies and more lies.

Romney is all for redistributing wealth, but its from the poor to the rich.  And that has already happened in one Government in history not in America but in France under  Louis XIV, led to the French Revolution and finally Reign of Terror, in which many were guillotined including the king and queen and the 1 percent of France

VIDEO – President Obama Appears On David Letterman: The President Works For EVERYBODY

Appearing on David Letterman’s show Tuesday night. President Barack Obama declared that the occupant of the Oval Office must “work for everyone, not just for some,”  slamming back at Mitt Romney‘s unbelievable statement that as a candidate, he doesn’t worry about the 47 percent of the country that thinks they are “victims” and  that pays no income taxes.

Said the President: “One thing I’ve learned as president is that you represent the entire country,” he said. As for Romney’s statement about the 47 percent, he said, “There are not a lot of people out there who think they are victims” then added that as a Government “We’ve got some obligations to each other, and there’s nothing wrong with us giving each other a helping hand.”

Barney Frank Rips Mitt Romney A New One Over “47 Percent – Victims” Secret Videotape.

“Mitt Romney’s attack on the moral character of disabled veterans, elderly and disabled Social Security recipients, and hard-working Americans in low-wage jobs because they do not pay income taxes is especially galling given the great energy he has put into evading income taxes on his very high income. Many of those whom Mr. Romney impugns pay a significant portion of their income in payroll taxes which support Social Security and Medicare.

“And until Mr. Romney stops hiding his own tax records, we can speculate that those people pay a higher percentage of their income in these taxes than Mr. Romney does on his foreign accounts, tax shelters, and other evasive devices. What Mr. Romney has done is to make clear – although he had not intended to be so public about it – the philosophical rationale behind efforts of the Romney-Ryan ticket to weaken the Social Security and Medicare safety nets.” – Rep. Barney Frank.

We the 47 Percent DEMAND that Mitt Romney release all his Tax Returns NOW!

*Oh and by the way Mittens.  Your “tithting” to the Mormon Church is NOT chaity.  Its a payoff to organized crime.

At Emergency Presser Romney Stands by Comments That 47% of Americans Are Freeloaders – Video

At a late night emergency  press conference arranged on Monday night, Mitt  Romney in response to a secretly recorded video made at a private fundraiser in May the “Boca Raton home of private-equity executive Marc Leder, stood by the comments he made to the millionaire donors present stating that “47 percent of Americans pay no taxes” believe that they “are entitled to healthcare, food, and housing” and also said that they portray themselves as “victims”.

Romney took just three questions, walking away when asked if his claims that almost half of Americans see themselves as “victims” represent his “core convictions” and what he believes.

Mother Jones’ David Corn — who first reported on the video said on  MSNBC News Monday evening, “The fact that Mitt Romney has not challenged a word here shows you that this is what he said, this is what he said behind closed doors with a  bunch of other millionaires he felt quite comfortable with.”
