Jim Webb squashes Mitt Romney like a bug

Let’s face it — Mitt Romney is so repulsive on so many levels that it’s hard to know where to begin.

But since you have to begin somewhere, how about the 47% speech, taken in conjunction with Romney’s not bothering to mention the military (aside from Obama’s “defence cuts,” which are as real as his “Medicare cuts”) in his nomination speech. And look, everyone’s favorite surly senator, Jim Webb from Virginia, a military guy through and through, has noticed that Romney seems a bit indifferent to what is owed to veterans, and made a killer speech about it.

If you get the impression that Webb doesn’t seem to like Romney very much, that’s the point.

  1. Jim Webb is right on!
    Prince Mitt wants to be King?. Sure, you can fool some of the people,
    some of the time, but did the Great Flipper even MENTION the words
    “worker” or “veteran” in his Republican convention speech?
    This man Romney is SO out of touch …that it’s incredible.
    Mitt -buddy- please, tell me this: are we in the jungle, or are we a community?
    What does our country owe its people? What do our people owe this great country?
    And what do we ….we the people….owe to each other?
    …..as part of a society that we call America?
    Romney and Company has an answer. And it sure enough ain’t pretty.
    They smirk, and smile, and smugly say to us:
    TO HELL with all those “moochers” and “free-loaders”
    receiving Medicare, or Veterans Benefits, or Pell Grants,
    or Earned Income & Child Tax Credits, or Head Start, or Social Security,
    or Unemployment, or Medicaid, or Food Stamps, or Disability.
    Romney says TO HELL with all of us that are struggling to stay afloat,
    to those in the Middle-class, and to those hoping to get there.
    Romney says TO HELL with his “47% of America” — the “losers”
    that Romney so easily dismisses and disrespects as “dependents”.
    Romney says TO HELL with the elderly, the hungry, the homeless, the helpless,
    and the hopeless …and to all the biblical “least of these”.
    Does he even know the Christian New Testament? Love thy neighbor?
    Come on Mitt, let’s be honest: YOUR REAL GOD IS MONEY.
    YOUR saints are those who have the most …and TO HELL with the rest of us.
    Romney complains that we’re shamelessly sponging off of him,
    and all his poor-poor-poor super-rich friends
    …..all those super-rich folks who want to BUY this ELECTION,
    …..who want to BUY this COUNTRY.
    Trickle-down economics? Hey sure, why not – let them eat cake, they say.
    But it’s all the same. Always has been:
    It’s crumbs for us, and Cadillacs and 10 houses with car elevators,
    and loopholes & lower taxes for them.
    That is, IF they, and the bailed-out banks, and the big corporations pay ANY taxes at all.
    Bottom line: When THEY get a break – hey, they deserve it.
    But if YOU get a break, it’s a handout. BULL!
    Tell me – who are the REAL “takers”? Who are the REAL “makers”?
    Who are the TRUE workers and builders? Who are the REAL “victims” here?
    And who’s in the Cayman Islands, trying to avoid taxes, and deducting his dancing horses?
    Who gave their LIVES and limbs …in unpaid and un-needed wars?
    Whose sweat, …..on whose brows, has BUILT this great country?
    Was it the Romney’s of this world …or us?
    But we still have a voice. And it’s called our VOTE.
    Loud and Clear — we need to just say NO.
    NO to Romney & Company. NO to what they stand for.
    ‘Cause this is STILL our country. Our children’s country.
    And we mean to KEEP it that way. Period.
    Romney should “self-deport” himself back to Mexico,
    where his grandpa fled to avoid the U.S. marriage monogamy laws.
    ‘Cause Prince Mitt not only wants to kill the Dream Act, but the American Dream as well.
    We need a President for ALL the people –
    NOT a President of the wealthy, by the wealthy, and for the wealthy.
