Sometimes our political discourse is so god damned stupid it just pains me some days to browse websites (since I have basically quit watching cable news except for a brief Maddow or Larry O’Donnell show), and this past two days has been one of those time periods. I simply have no idea what Booker is thinking, although since he is clearly paid in full, he’s just doing what he needs to service his paymasters. I don’t know if he is done politically, but I do know if he ever runs for anything nationally, he’ll not see one god damned penny from me. He’s proven he can’t be trusted.
But what bothers me the most is how the media idiots have all attached themselves to Booker’s POV. Look, if Team Obama were focusing on Romney’s Mormonism or other stuff, I could understand it. But this is where we are with Bain. Romney has spent the last couple years running away from his only record of governance and his horrid job creation record as Governor as well as Romneycare, and has focused entirely on his record as a “job creator.” He talks about it over and over and over again:
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s campaign misses few opportunities to promote his record creating jobs, including his role in taking Staples Inc. (SPLS) from a start-up to the world’s largest office-supply retailer.
“You’d have a president who has spent his life in business — small business, big business — and who knows something about how jobs are created and how we compete around the world,” he said at a campaign stop last month at Buddy Brew Coffee in Tampa, Florida.
You’d think, if someone is running on their record as a job creator at Bain, the opposition would be allowed to discuss that, right? But, no. This is Idiot America, and our national conversation goes something like this:
Mitt Romney- I’m a job creator and I should be President for my record of creating jobs at Bain.
Obama 2012 campaign- O…k…, then… Let’s look at that record of yours at Bain and all the jobs you “created.”
Cory Booker, our media whores, and assorted useful idiots (I’m now officially tired of waiting for Mataconis to pull his head out of his ass. He could be anal raped by Reince Priebus at the GOP convention, and the whole time he’d be biting a pillow whimpering “BOTH SIDES DO IT. BOTH SIDES DO IT.” Moron.)- NAUSEATING DISTRACTIONS. DIRTY POLITICS. SAME OLD SAME OLD. POLITICS AS USUAL.
It’s really insane. Romney wants to run on his record, but WE’RE NOT ALLOWED TO FUCKING TALK ABOUT IT, or David Broder’s maggot infested corpse will have a sad.
We’re really the stupidest country ever, and it’s just depressing watching David Gregory and the rest of the hacks blow wet kisses at Republicans as they drive us off a cliff.
