That the ELECTED might never form to themselves an interest
    separate from the ELECTORS, prudence will point out the
    propriety of having elections often.

Notice how Romney and Bush never, ever appear in the same place at the same time.
Coincidence? I think not ↓

From the ‘Can’t Make This Stuff Up’ Department…



Former President George W. Bush is set to deliver the keynote address at the Cayman Alternative Investment Summit on Grand Cayman just a few days before the election.

Lectures during the two-day conference will include: “The Evolution of the Wealth Management Industry,” “How to Capitalize on Asia as a Nascent Fund Superpower” and “Investing in a Debt-Fueled World.”

The timing of the conference could land awkwardly during an election season that’s been marked by speculation about Mitt Romney’s finances,  particularly his offshore investments in tax havens like the Cayman Islands.


This is not — I repeat NOT — from The Onion. Here’s the Cayman Conference’s website.

Take a moment to remember the thousands of young Americans who died in Iraq, murdered by George W. Bush in order to accomplish his REAL mission of obtaining 30-year no-bid oil contracts for ExxonMobil, Chevron, Shell, Total and BP.
When the moment is over, turn your thoughts to the fact that Mitt Romney is using the same Neocon Foreign Policy “advisors” as the despicable criminal Bush.
And in the next few weeks, whenever you hear Romney warmongering about Iran, remember Bush’s true mission in Iraq and 4,500 young Americans, dead on the altar of Big Oil.
Just as a reminder of the indecency and utter lack of humanity of Republicans, here’s video of Blood-for-Oil Bush in 2004, joking — JOKING — about the fact that no WMDs were ever found in Iraq:

Signal boosting, because honesty.

Is there anyone gullible enough to believe that with Benjamin Netanyahu in one ear and Sheldon Adelson in the other, a President Romney wouldn’t have the U.S. in another expansive, unpaid for, Republican ground war by mid 2013? 

Signal boosting because I remember the Vietnam Draft and the 19 year-olds who were ripped out of their lives, never to return.

I think he diminished himself by even mentioning my name how does he even know my name I mean aren’t these guys supposed to be these bigwig elites who don’t waste their time on the little people like me representing the average American yeah I did say in Alaska you can see Russia from our landbase and I was making the point that we are strategically located on the globe so it’s funny that he would take a little potshot like that but uh it’s funny he even knows my name.

There she is, folks — the woman John McCain said made a better candidate than Mitt Romney.

They ask if I’m better off than I was four years ago. Let’s see…

Four years ago, this ridiculous fuckwit was on the teevee 24/7. I have since regained the IQ points I lost by osmosis. So yes, I’m better off.

Also.

Too.

I just saw another blogger musing over why George Dubya Bush was absent from the Republican Convention. I’m guessing it’s the same reason many of you will beg your parents not to make you invite the alcoholic uncle who has been married five times to your wedding.

An excellent analogy, except my drunk uncle never condemned 4,500 Young Americans to die in Iraq in order to obtain 30-year no-bid oil contracts for ExxonMobil, BP, Total and Shell.

They certainly weren’t thinking of the well-being of the public when they ignored the August 6, 2001 warning that an Al Queda strike was imminent. What were they thinking of? Iraqi Oil Contracts and War Profiteering, of course!

Does the Fact Check reveal that 4,500 Young Americans died in Bush’s Iraq War to get those 30-year no-bid oil contracts for ExxonMobil, BP, Total and Shell?
