President Obama and his supporters continue to find every excuse imaginable to distract voters from actually reflecting on Obama’s record over the past four years, which can be easily summarized: Disastrous national debt, higher unemployment, greater number of food stamp recipients, and higher levels of poverty. The bottom line is that the politics of distraction and destruction is in full sway and only promises to get worse as we get closer to election day. Continue reading
We started MittTheMan.com last October because we were fed up with people who have never met Mitt declaring him to be “robotic,”plastic,” and “unfeeling.” Escalating the insults, exclamations such as “he has no core” continue to fill the news. The negativity towards Mitt reached I hope will be seen as its climax during his recent trip abroad, which implies the turning of the tide in the Obama “Kill Romney” campaign strategy.
I have truly mixed feelings about last evening’s Rock Center with Brian Williams that ran on MSNBC. Perhaps more on that later, but I will at least provide what I Tweeted (@Bush46) during the show and after seeing what others were saying:
Artur Davis, the former Congressman from Alabama, switched parties earlier this year and has now thrown his support behind Mitt Romney. The switch is significant, give that he served as a national co-chair for President Obama’s 2008 campaign and made one of the nominating speeches for Obama at the 2008 Democratic Convention.

The 2012 presidential campaign continues apace with the press doing its level best to advance the narrative that Mitt Romney and his family are rich and hopelessly out of touch. Consider this excerpt from a New York Daily News story entitled “What do the simple folk do? Ask Mitt and Ann Romney as they grocery shop, visit home of coal miner ancestors.” The piece ran with the picture below and this rather sarcastic lede:
That proposed assumption will hold only for a second, but bear with me… Barbs flew today on the weekly news shows today, in one case with RNC chairman Reince Priebus accused Senator Harry Reid of being a “dirty liar.”Thus, the brouhaha over Mitt’s taxes continues. A simple effort to take all aspects of this controversy into account reveals one simple fact: The Democrats want to embarrass Mitt Romney for being rich. We arrive at this conclusion quite easily, given that only a little speculation is required to assume that there is no way that Mitt could have avoided filing tax returns for ten years.
