CNN: ‘Welcome to the Mitt Romney Primary’

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015 - by Michael Walsh

Remember all that stuff I’ve been telling you about the Permanent Bipartisan Fusion Party, and its junior wing, the GOP? Yeah… Mitt Romney, the man Republicans were so quick to dismiss after his failed 2012 presidential bid, is suddenly in high demand among his GOP colleagues. The former Massachusetts governor and his wife, Ann, dropped in […]

Mitt Romney to Fight Heavyweight Boxing Champion Evander Holyfield for Charity (Video)

Friday, May 15th, 2015 - by Debra Heine

No, this is not the Onion or Epic Rap Battles of History. This is really happening – tonight. If a fight between a politician and a former heavyweight champion seems like a bit of a mismatch — don’t worry. The goal is to put on a fun exhibition and raise money to cure blindness. The 68-year-old retired Republican […]

New Caption Contest: Romney Beats Clinton in Quinnipiac Poll – Third Time’s the Charm?

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014 - by Myra Adams

Last Wednesday, while most Americans were on their way to Grandma’s house for Thanksgiving, a new Quinnipiac University poll was released. The poll revealed some interesting 2016 presidential election data for political junkies to ingest along with their pumpkin pie. (Why the heck else would they have picked Turkey Wednesday to release their poll?) The […]

Mitt Romney: ‘Is Not Like Us’ – Except Now He Is

Monday, December 3rd, 2012 - by Myra Adams

Back in August of 2011,  Politico ran a piece about how Team Obama expected Mitt Romney to be the GOP presidential nominee. This was Obama’s victory plan: “Unless things change and Obama can run on accomplishments, he will have to kill Romney.” The onslaught would have two aspects. The first is personal: Obama’s reelection campaign […]

Tribal Voting Behavior Means The Republican Party Could Go The Way Of the Whigs

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012 - by Myra Adams

When I first moved to Old Town Alexandria, Virginia in 1980 there was a sign on a small office building that said National Headquarters for Veterans of World War I. Driving by that building always left me wondering when this distinguished organization would cease to exist. Sure enough one day the sign was gone, replaced […]

Yes, George W. Bush Might Well Be The Last Republican President

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012 - by Myra Adams

OK, now I am forced to move “FORWARD” in a bus with “Revenge” emblazoned on the side that is waiting to take me to re-education camp. So before I board, here are some thoughts on the election. Romney’s loss has its roots in the GOP primary race. The primary season went on far too long, […]

How Will The Mainstream Media Cover President Romney? Hint: Remember George W. Bush?

Monday, November 5th, 2012 - by Myra Adams

What prominent institution did everything it could to make George W. Bush a failed president? If your answer is the mainstream media (MSM) you would be correct. The MSM was shocked shocked when Bush won reelection in 2004 and they were not going to cut him any slack whatsoever about anything good or bad that […]

Saturday, November 3rd, 2012 - by Myra Adams

Today a friend sent me this photo that she received from her friend in Tucson, AZ. The caption was from the original email. This has to be one of the best election photos ever. What do you think?

Romney/Ryan Are The First Names On The Florida Ballot — And There Is Even More Positive And Historic News From My Early Voting Experience

Friday, November 2nd, 2012 - by Myra Adams

Instead of wearing an “I voted early” sticker, I would much rather wear an “I voted early so stop calling me” sticker. For it is no exaggeration that we receive at least 30 calls a day from Republican groups and candidates. That said, yesterday was the day I had scheduled to vote early. Several times […]

Romney Wins Endorsements of Retired Admirals and Generals by a Landslide

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012 - by Myra Adams

Is there a message this star-studded list of retired Generals and Admirals is trying to send us about our Commander in Chief?  President Obama may have “killed Bin Laden” but somehow he lost this distinguished group.  Do not expect to receive an email from the Obama campaign reporting this defeat from the “Battle of the […]

When Corn Fields Replace Yard Signs

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012 - by Myra Adams

Last night’s Presidential Debate may have been about war and foreign policy but another battle is growing in the fields across the fruited plain. City folks have bumper stickers, suburban families have yard signs and farmers have hundreds of acres! Clearly these farmers either have way too much time on their hands or voting with […]

Do Not Tell Anyone, But Cupcake Sales Can Predict Who Wins The White House – A True Story

Monday, October 22nd, 2012 - by Myra Adams

Last week a Washington D.C. Republican consultant happily told my husband that Romney yard signs had overtaken Obama signs in what is usually his very Democrat leaning, upscale neighborhood in Fairfax County, Virginia. Situated close to our nation’s capitol, Fairfax County is a fierce battleground within a must-win battleground state for both Obama and Romney. […]

Now it is time to close out this week’s Great Debate(??) and announce the winners of our What is President Obama Thinking? – Photo Caption Contest.

Should President Obama Address Rumors of Election Unrest Before the Election?

Friday, October 19th, 2012 - by Myra Adams

Our nation has always prided itself on an orderly and regular transition of presidential power. Nothing showcases that orderly transition more than the president and the president-elect together riding in a limo up to Capitol Hill for the inauguration ceremony. This limo ride is especially noteworthy if the president-elect has just defeated the president. You […]

Rumors Gone Wild: The Tampon Rumor Rides Again

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012 - by Charlie Martin

As pointed out on Twitchy today, the “GOP wants to ban tampons” rumor has gooten going on Twitter. You may recall that we reported this one on October 7. This is actually something that has fascinated me since the old Palin Rumors list. A story will start on a satire site — as this one […]

Obama Myth: Fast and Furious Started Under Bush

Tuesday, October 9th, 2012 - by Charlie Martin

We can just turn this one over to Jake Tapper: Asked about the Fast and Furious program at the Univision forum on Thursday, President Obama falsely claimed that the program began under President George W. Bush. “I think it’s important for us to understand that the Fast and Furious program was a field-initiated program begun […]

Romney Rumors: Romney Used “Cheat Sheet” During Debate

Friday, October 5th, 2012 - by Charlie Martin

You can sort of see how the Obama fans would believe this.  How could the Smartest Man In The Room — for any room — the Lightbringer, the One, be bested intellectually by someone who merely has two Harvard graduate degrees and made a zillion dollars.  So it makes sense that Kos, for example, would […]

Obama Myth: When Did the Obama Administration Start? (A Bleg)

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012 - by Charlie Martin

Before I started trying to catalog the various Romney Rumors — to which I’m now adding Obama Myths starting today — I pointed out something odd I’d noticed: that Obama’s term in office had started peculiarly late. At least, it seemed that all 2009 spending had been signed by Bush (although the budget was signed […]

Romney Rumor: Mitt Doesn’t Understand What Working As A Garbageman Is Like

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012 - by Charlie Martin

As just reported by my colleague Bob Owens, not only has Romney worked as a garbageman, he even used the same line about how garbagemen are invisible. Raising the question of whether AFSCME’s ad agency are fools, plagiarists, or actually working for Romney.

Romney Rumor: Did Romney Force His Name Into a ‘Ryan’ Chant?

Friday, September 28th, 2012 - by Charlie Martin

MSNBC wants you to think so: On Wednesday, MSNBC aired a clip of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney leading what looks like a failed “Romney-Ryan” chant at a campaign stop in Ohio on Tuesday, prompting an embarrassed Joe Scarborough to mutter “Oh, sweet Jesus” and a purse-lipped Mika Brzezinski to ask “What’s wrong with those […]

Romney Rumor: Ryan Calls Romney “The Stench”

Wednesday, September 26th, 2012 - by Charlie Martin

Okay, Rick and Michael have already pretty well covered this (that’s what I get for going out to lunch) but this has to get in the Romney Rumors. When Roger Simon wrote in Politico Wednesday that Paul Ryan’s new nickname for Mitt Romney is “Stench,” a number of news outlets — from MSNBC to Mediaite — took it seriously. Simon […]

The ‘Stench’?

Wednesday, September 26th, 2012 - by Michael Walsh

Well, this stinks. You’re not going to like this much (or maybe you will), but here’s what Politico is pushing: Paul Ryan has gone rogue. He is unleashed, unchained, off the hook. “I hate to say this, but if Ryan wants to run for national office again, he’ll probably have to wash the stench of […]

Romney Rumor: Romney Pays Lower Tax Rate Than Middle-Class

Wednesday, September 26th, 2012 - by Charlie Martin

Obama’s campaign is now running this video: Is it true? In a word, no, and several groups have pointed it out. for example: According to Romney’s 2010 tax return, he had an adjusted gross income of about $21.7 million in 2010 and paid about $3 million in taxes. That comes to an effective tax rate of […]

Romney Rumor: Romney Thinks Airplane Windows Should Open

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012 - by Charlie Martin

Oh, my, this was popular yesterday.  See, eg, the LA Times: “I appreciate the fact that she is on the ground, safe and sound. And I don’t think she knows just how worried some of us were,” Romney said. “When you have a fire in an aircraft, there’s no place to go, exactly, there’s no […]

Romney Rumor: Romney Thinks “Middle Income” is $200K-$250K

Friday, September 14th, 2012 - by Charlie Martin

Sometimes just a couple words makes all the difference. Here’s how the Huffington Post just reported something Romney said recently: BOSTON (AP) — Mitt Romney is promising to reduce taxes on middle-income Americans. But how does he define “middle-income”? The Republican presidential nominee defined it as income of $200,000 to $250,000 a year. Romney commented […]
