        'I was born a poor black child' -  Swiss Mitt Romney

    'Meh' Mitt Romney will be the Republican nominee in November he bought it, he owns it. Mitt Romney "I love America. I'm good friends with the owners of it."
    Ann Romney explains why she allows her husband, unemployed mild-mannered business executive Willard Mitt Romney to run for president 'Mitt has to save the world.'

    Ann Romney declared that women she meets across the nation are "concerned about their children’s future, the deficit and the high cost of gas"  proof of how out of touch the Romney’s are.  

    The nation is filled with mothers who have to worry about tomorrow.  They can’t be concerned about the deficit they’re worried about putting dinner on the table and the rent.

    •Leave it to the Republicans to justify their decision to cut Head Start by saying that "women should really be married and home with their kids", thus rendering the program unnecessary.  

    •Leave it to the Republicans “Pay discrimination is a myth driven by liberal groups...money is more important to men."

    •Leave it to the Republicans "The federal government has no business tampering in, giving loans to citizens so that they may obtain an education, gain knowledge and improve their economic productivity. That's socialism. "

    Paul Krugman: There is that special Romney touch - the apparent complete inability to put himself in the shoes of someone else to understand that other people don't grow up as the children of of successful business executives.  That's really distinctive. I don't think we have ever seen anything quite that obtuse in a presidential candidate before.  

    What he's not grasping is the sheer extent of the suffering that is going on in this economy and the fact that the policies that he is advocating would make it worse. Mitt Romney's advise: "Borrow money from your parents for your college education."

      Romney Picks Notorious Neocon as Lead Foreign Policy Adviser

      GOP front-runner Mitt Romney – who has promised us another century of mass murder and crimes against humanity – has picked a neocon as his new foreign policy adviser.

      Walid Phares is a Lebanese terrorism “expert” who often makes the rounds to denounce enemies of the empire (usually Iran and Syria) and is featured as a speaker by Benador Associates, a public relations outfit promoting the worst of the worst in the neocon constellation.

      Phares is also connected to David Horowitz, the former Marxist magazine publisher who has taken money from CIA operative Richard Mellon Scaife.

      Horowitz, who admits he is a traitor to the United States, runs an extreme neocon and ferociously anti-Muslim website called FrontPage and is often referred to as one of America’s most dangerous hatemongers by his ideological enemies over on the so-called left.

      Phares is a “contributing expert” along with fellow neocons Frank Gaffney and Meyrav Wurmser at the rabidly pro-Israel Ariel Center for Policy Research.

      In the mid-1980s he was the Washington lobbyist for the Lebanese Phalange party.

      It was founded in the 1930s by Pierre Gemayel and inspired by the Nazi Youth Movement in Hitler’s Germany.

      In 1982, the Phalange cooperated with Israel in its invasion of Lebanon and participated in the Sabra and Shatila massacre of Palestinians that same year. Israel’s invasion resulted in 19,085 deaths and 31,915 wounded, overwhelmingly civilians.

      By placing Phares in his campaign, Romney has signaled that he is exactly the same as George W. Bush – a sock puppet for neocons who are determined to keep the war against Islam on track despite the overwhelming desire of the American people to put an end to the decade-long multiple front war in the Middle East and South Asia

      Whiff the Bush Jingoism - Mitt The Neocon  

      Mitt Romney is mining the George W. Bush White House for legal talent to advise his presidential campaign — including a key person behind the controversial Justice Department memos authorizing waterboarding and other “enhanced interrogation techniques.”

      Mitt Romney Adopts Neocon-Bush Pre-emptive War Doctrine

      Mitt Romney proposed a provocative escalation in the standoff with Iran, calling for the "regular presence" of two aircraft carrier task forces in the waters around Iran, including one in the eastern Mediterranean, amid a hot zone of contentious Middle Eastern nations.

      The speech came on the heels of the announcement of a foreign policy team for Romney that contained many of the same Bush administration officials and aides who were most responsible for pushing that era's controversial policies, from torture and warrant- less wiretapping to the war in Iraq.

      Romney's top advisers on counter - terrorism, for instance, are Michael Chertoff and Michael Hayden, Bush's former homeland security secretary and CIA director, respectively, who together oversaw many of the abuses in the domestic war on terror.
