The Sweet Tears of Mitt Romney

"I'll say what you want me to say, dear electorate. Over mountains and waves and seas."

Mitt Romney, who hurls every epithet he can at Obama, including the ridiculous socialist label, has called Obama's statement that Mitt shipped jobs overseas as a "personal attack."

No, Mitt. A personal attack would be something like you belong to a fringe Christian sect that believes the way into heaven is passwords and handshakes, in addition to good, clean living.

A legitimate criticism is to say that when you claim you are king in the private sector, calling forth jobs like a divine creator, the facts do not appear to match that, you boot-strappin', out-sourcer.

Hey, I don't care what you do. Really. Cut costs, pay people pennies, and rake it in for yourself. That's fine. But don't be surprised when you are running for public office that somebody calls you on your greed and your feeble attempts to explain it away. "I was saving the Olympics," you say. So you had no idea what was going on at Bain Capital? When, if ever, did you become aware of outsourcing? Did you think it was OK when you did become aware? Or are you so bad at that job you leave the ship to other people and don't care what they do so long as you get your checks? Did you like the extra bucks it puts in your accounts? 

The Last Boy Scout

On my honor I will do my best. That much I can agree with.
If I ever need to know where to send my son to learn irrelevant "skills" like knot tying and basket weaving and learn to discriminate based on sexuality, I'm pleased to know the Boy Scouts is still carrying the torch.

I'm an Eagle Scout, although if I had my choice I would have dropped out after I was 12. It's an outdated, conservative organization that still believes you can measure a man's worth by his love of God, country and the out of doors. I love none of those things.

I did not choose to be heterosexual. I doubt anyone chooses to be homosexual. Even if they did, what is that to me? How will it affect me in the slightest? It's a silly belief to have, judging a person on their sexuality. It makes as much sense as judging them on race.
