Today is the 49th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech. The election of Barack Obama marked part of that dream coming true. And now Mitt Romney wants to shake us all awake—“Snap out of it! You were having a dream!” That’s one more reason to vote for Barack Obama. Do you really want Mitt Romney to be president next year, presiding over the official celebrations of the 50th anniversary of King’s speech? If a President Romney even allowed celebrations of the 50th anniversary, he wouldn’t attend. He would probably send his Attorney General, Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
Hurricane Isaac is just hours away from landfall. Isaac is expected to make landfall as a Category 1 storm. On the other half of your split-screen will be the Republican Convention—a Category 1 Hate-Fest.
Mitt Romney is implying that President Obama’s “base” is made up of welfare recipients. And by doing that, he’s virtually admitting that he knows his base is made up of racists. First Mitt lied that Obama had weakened welfare work requirements. Now he says Obama did that “to try to shore up his base.” Mitt Romney has crossed the line between distasteful and disgusting. For the record, there are fewer than 5 million welfare recipients in America. Trying to use them as a base to win a national election is even stupider than trying to use a base of exclusively white males. It looks like Mitt is running the most racist campaign in history… and it’s still August! What does this guy have planned for the fall—actual cross burnings?
If most Republicans would simply cut FEMA, Ron Paul would cut it out entirely. Ron Paul is against emergency management because he says it’s not mentioned in the Constitution. I don’t know about Ron, but I consider preventing people from dying to fit under the overall heading of “promote the general welfare.” We can have disagreements about what the proper role of government is, but what kind of lunatic thinks that government has no role in helping people who are perishing in a disaster? If Ron Paul doesn’t think the government should rush into a disaster area and help the people there, why does he think that the government should rush into a woman’s womb and help the blastocyst there?
