Randi Rhodes @RandiRadio blog: Immune to the Truth

by Randi Rhodes posted Sep 10 2012 6:10PM

This weekend Mitt Romney was on “Meet the Press,” which is completely different from a “Meet the Press” featuring a normal human being. They should call it “Mitt the Press.” Mitt has spent years trying to avoid being on Meet the Press. And he continued trying to avoid it even while it was on.

Mitt spoke about his stance about healthcare. An aide later had to clarify that Mitt thinks “the marketplace” will take care of people with preexisting conditions. But Mitt, how will someone whose infant child needs multiple heart-surgeries decide among all the competing offers for low-cost health insurance? Maybe Mitt thinks that people with preexisting conditions should just ask their parents to provide health insurance. Got that, Grandma? Ask Great-Grandma to handle that for you.

It comes as no surprise that Mitt’s tax plan is missing a lot of vital information. Information about taxes is the last thing that Mitt Romney wants to give out. Now Mitt claims that his tax cuts for the rich will not “reduce the tax burden” for the rich. Uh… so why are you doing it? Mitt, I don’t give you credit for many real convictions, but I will admit that you have a deep and sincere desire to reduce taxes for rich people. Mitt claims his plan is a tax cut for everyone but that he closes loopholes so that the taxes of the rich don’t go down. I will give him this much—if he really did want to close tax loopholes for the rich, Mitt Romney would be the go-to guy. He knows more tax loopholes for the rich than anybody anywhere. Mitt says his tax cuts for the rich aren’t tax cuts at all. Mitt, why don’t you just start telling people that you are not Mitt Romney? That’s not much of a leap from where you are now!

Amazing—15 percent of Ohio Republicans said that Mitt Romney deserves more credit for killing Osama bin Laden than President Obama does. When exactly did Mitt Romney have time to kill Osama bin Laden? Wasn’t he too busy saving the auto industry? The bottom line is, if Mitt Romney was in charge of getting Osama bin Laden, you can be sure that Mitt’s plan would be to let “the marketplace” take care of it.

Listen to me Monday through Friday 6 PM to 8 PM on WWRL 1600.
