The Romney campaign
Q. What could look more uncomfortable than Mitt Romney in blue jeans? A. Paul Ryan in blue jeans. These two down-to-earth men just can't do it. They want you to think they are just like us, but they aren't. And they never will be.
Cornel West's new book comes to mind: The Rich and the Rest of Us. Romney-Ryan are truly the 1 percent. The Rest of Us are not.
Enter Mrs. Romney. She is apparently not used to being interviewed. It was not exactly a Sarah Palin-Katie Couric moment, but it was very revealing. The Entertainment Tonight reporter ended the interview with the question on everyone's mind Why won't you release the income tax returns? Mrs. Romney almost exploded. She said pretty much what Mitt said--the more we releaase the more they will attack us!--on the subject, but she said it with an icy stare and close to a spanking. It was a "wait 'till your father gets home" moment.
Fighting Bob Fest will face some tough questions about our future actions. What works and what does not.
I am looking forward to this Bob Fest. Phil Donahue, Gwen Moore, Dr. Jill Stein, Buddy Roemer, Greg Palast, Terry O'Neil, Bill McKibben. This will be one heck of a discussion. See you on the 15th.
Romney's selection of Ayn Rand's devotee is incredibly dumb. Ryan, who got very rich between his first term and today, won't reveal his taxes beyond one year either. What are they hiding?
MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell thinks there is a possible felony involved. Whoa Nelly.

Why do the 1% believe they have all the answers for the rest of us? They don't. We are mere pawns in the games they play. Isn't it time for the pawns to checkmate the king(s)?

We all know the Romneys and the Ryans of the world love America.
They just don't like the people who live here.
