The Continuing Lies of Mitt Romney

From Mitt’s victory speech in Florida tonight:

“And, without raising taxes, I will finally balance the budget.”  Good luck with that.  Newt’s Moon colony is more likely to happen.

“President Obama demonizes and denigrates almost every sector of our economy.”  Because that’s just how those Kenyan Muslim Socialists are.

 

The Futility of Afghanistan

According to the Times of London, a highly classified report that our military prepared for top NATO officials concludes that the Taliban will take control of Afghanistan after we leave.

The report also confirms the strong ties between the Taliban and Pakistan’s intelligence agency, the ISI.

Why stay in this tunnel until the end of 2014 when there’s no light at the end?  We should focus on using special forces and drones to go after Islamic terrorists and accept that the Afghans are going to continue to live in the 7th century.

What a Sneak That Mitt Is!

The prize for today’s most unsurprising headline goes to “Romney’s tax plan really does favor the rich,” by Roberton Williams in The Christian Science Monitor.

We know that Mitt has been running around saying that he wants to eliminate taxes on capital gains and dividends for households making less than $200,000.  So this sounds like a way to help families that aren’t super rich.

Except, according to this article, that the $200,000 threshold applies only to ordinary income, not to income from capital gains and dividends.  And who has $200,000 or more in annual capital gains and dividend income rather than salary or wages?  Very, very rich people.

So once again the deck is stacked against those who work for a living.

If Mitt is being deceptive now, does anyone think he’ll be honest once he’s sitting in the Oval Office?
