Oh man, this is classic. McCain totally referred to Romney as “President Obama” and went on for a few seconds before Gov. Haley corrected him. Hilarious!

You know what they say about drunk people being more truthful, right? I think that applies here too.

    McCain is on the Romney bandwagon hoping to be his VP or get some kind of reward. He should have treated this endorsement as high as Nikki Haley’s.

    It is time for McCain and others to retire, they have been in the senate and/or house too long. They need to get a job in the private sector or retire, but it’s time to get them out of power. I suspect some are getting Alzheimer’s or dementia. My mother had it and I wouldn’t wish it on my worse enemy. I do not want to have to wonder about the members of congress. This is another reason for term limits, so that we do not have Strom Thurmond’s, Robert Byrd’s etc rolled out once in a while to show that they are still alive.

    The people in that crowd need to take that as an omen. Voting for Romney is just voting for another socialist. Even if he’s a milder one.

    HALF-FULL REPORT 01/06/12
    Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler
    Friday, 06 January 2012

    As Jackie Gleason[1] always said at the start of his show, “And awaaaaay we go!” with the first HFR of 2012.

    The first week of the year got shot out of the fascist cannon with Zero declaring war on Congress by making four presidential appointments that are egregiously unconstitutional. Ed Meese, President Reagan’s Attorney General, explains why.

    The fury of Boehner Congressfolk means nothing to Zero. As an example of how hopelessly feckless the Pubtards are, Republican Senator Scott Brown (remember how excited we were about him a year ago?) announced his support for Zero’s fascism.

    ************

    Zero’s lawless behavior is such an overt example of the inertia of fascism we face today.

    As Newton taught us, inertia is double-sided: if something is moving, it will keep moving unless something else stops it; if something is not moving, it will stay not moving unless something else moves it. Further, the bigger something is, the more force it will take to stop or start it.

    Michael Savage is no doubt correct in predicting that Zero’s reelection will result in a Hugo Chavez-type banana republic dictatorship, for we are well on our way towards it right now. The fascist unconstitutional lawlessness of our federal government has built up a monumental amount of inertia, which won’t be halted or slowed down merely by Zero’s defeat. It will take an equally monumental effort to reverse its direction.

    Which brings us to the pointlessness of Mitt Romney. Why is he running for president other than to be president? That’s really what’s going on, you know. He wants to live up to his dad.

    There’s a couple of videos also. It’s just too involved to put here.

      If anyone wants to know what will happen starting day one when Romney gets into the White House, look at Scott Brown’s Senate voting record.

      The banksters own these guys.

    Yeah he made an “oops”. At least it was just a “Perry” moment. Santorum on the other hand voted “Aye” to the appointment of one of the MOST liberal judges Sonya Sotomayo and McCain voted “Nay”. http://t.co/jY8SxQti

    • Anonymous

      Simple. Once Hussein became the chosen one, McCain was willing to throw the fight as it was unlikely to affect the rest of his pathetic political career.

      They needed to save Romney to reign another day, as a Republican Progressive. This playing out now. Goldman Sachs and the other banksters are now fully funding Romney.

      It is our last chance folks. I wish it had been Palin or Bachmann but we blew that. Put your money and time behind Santorum.

      The Founders intended, no, expected us to reject a government like this. We better stand up!

    I saw this video yesterday morning and I was wondering why it didn’t hit the airwaves. I mean, if it were Newt or Santorum this would have been all over the place. I blasted this on twitter even sent a tip to this site – nothing happened.

    Really folks this goes to show you that Romney is really no different than Obama for except the label. Even McCain thinks so too – being a progressive as he is.

    I look at his so called plan for America and I didn’t find anything in it that would benefit all of us. A little tweak here and there, but basically the same old stuff – maintaining the status quo. Fort instance, at first glance I didn’t see anything on what to do about Social Security.

    Now it comes down to the lesser of two evils.

      “I saw this video yesterday morning and I was wondering why it didn’t hit the airwaves.”

      Because McCain is part of the political class. Gaffe or Freudian slip, it makes Romney look foolish and that is outside the narrative.

    When McCain began his 2008 campaign, at one stop he said “I’m what I’ve always been — a liberal ….. um… a conservative…..Hello” (slaps his face).

      “I am a proud, conservative, liberal Republican”.

      Interesting thing abut stuff like this is that if you look at McCain’s record it is Progressive. To paraphrase Michell Bachmann, “Fiscal Conservative” is another word for “Frugal Progressive”.

        Well if you want ideological clarity and commitment, then Perry is the guy. He calls Obama a socialist. He doesn’t talk about ‘getting things done’ with the ‘other side’ like Santorum, Gingrich, Romney and pretty much the rest of them. Perry has no interest in compromise in his messaging. He even wants to send the legislature home and cut their pay so they stop doing harm.
