New fun quote by the Romney campaign - alyburns' (aka sideburns & alyjude) Hiding Place

New fun quote by the Romney campaign
that I could not resist posting - sorry.

From Huffington Post:

Mitt Romney's campaign said on Tuesday that its ads attacking President Obama's waiver policy on welfare have been its most effective to date. And while the spots have been roundly criticized as lacking any factual basis, the campaign said it didn't really care. "We're not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact-checkers," Romney pollster Neil Newhouse said at a panel organized by ABC News.

O-kay. I can see why fact-checkers - and the resulting facts - could be troublesome to a campaign, so BRAVO to the Romney campaign for being different and not bowing to facts.

*wild applause*


PS: Does anyone wonder why all the hullabaloo about the "Work" part of the Welfare issue - when NO ONE can find a job, let alone folks on Welfare???? How finding a job be a condition of receiving welfare when A) you're probably ON welfare because you can't find a job and B) again, NO ONE can find a job...

I'm just wondering, that's all....

Sing it sister! With the job market so wretched, why is it a good idea to make it even harder for people to get a little help?

And the Romney campaign just makes me wild with its nonchalant attitude to the truth. If he's lying about this he's lying about everything else, IMHO. Gah!

I know!

Are you watching the HBO series, The Newsroom? It is AWESOME and says everything I've tried to say but can never get right - but then, it's written by Aaron Sorkin! LOL!

Re: I know!

I just posted a video to my Livejournal from The Newsroom. Since you watch it you might know the video "The Tea Party is the American Taliban". I was so shocked someone was willing to say it even if it was on a television show. As for Romney, I say "Kudos" at least his campaign willingly admits it will not be hampered by the truth.

Re: I know!

ROTFLOL! I loved the R.I.N.O. thing for the finale. AWE-SOME *she sing-songs*

Not even MSNBC will be as honest as Will McAvoy - and he's a Republican. I WUV Aaron Sorkin - he is 'da man!

You know the sorry part of admitting they won't be hampered by the truth? They don't even get it. *rolls eyes*

I don't get HBO and I've read mixed reviews so it hasn't been a priority for me. I'll have to see if I can find it through ::koff:: alternative means.

Girl, you MUST

'find it' *g* and ASAP. IT IS TOTALLY AWESOME and the only reason for mixed reviews is that it pulls NO punches and is telling an awesome truth about our newsmedia - or should we say the lack thereof. :( And the acting? The dialogue? *drops ded* Aaron has his spark back. It's like watching The West Wing again, only from a different perspective; namely that of a news show attempting to bring back the kind of straight, from the hip, hard-asking questions News of the past. Even the opening brings tears to my eyes as they harken back to the days of Edward R Murro, Huntley/Brinkley, and all the greats. *sigh*

Now, the news are owned by the very people trying to change the democratic process via buckets of money - and even if the newsmen and women wanted to, they can't ask the hard questions. :(
