Let me start by saying Mitt Romney is a Pathological Liar.
On Dec. 31, 2006, Romney signed a Pledge to one man, Grover Norquist. Thus making Grover Norquist one of Mitt Romney's Puppet Masters.
Grover Norquist is totally Anti-American in that he loathes and despises everything about American Government's system of Democracy:
2003, Norquist said:
Norquist also said this in 2003:
NORQUIST: "We are trying to change the tones in the state capitals — and turn them toward bitter nastiness and partisanship. Bipartisanship is another name for date rape.”
~May 26, 2003 Denver Post Author: John Aloysius Farrell
NORQUIST: “Our goal is to inflict pain. It is not good enough to win; it has to be a painful and devastating defeat. We're sending a message here. It is like when the king would take his opponent's head and spike it on a pole for everyone to see.”In 2001, Norquist said,
~National Journal, 2003 as quoted in “The Republican Noise Machine” by David Brock
Yes, those quotes are from one of Mitt Romney's Puppet Masters, Grover Norquist. If elected President Mitt Romney has literally Pledged his Alliance and Allegiance to Norquist who says "Bipartisanship is another name for date rape" and who hates "We the People" so much that if anyone of "the People" disagree with him, he wants to "inflict pain ... like when the king would take his opponent's head and spike it on a pole for everyone to see."
NORQUIST: "I don't want to abolish government. I simply want to reduce it to the size where I can drag it into the bathroom and drown it in the bathtub."
~May 25, 2001, NPR
It's important to underscore the point that Presidential candidate Mitt Romney did not make a Pledge to We the People to look specifically at the Revenue needs of We the People of whom are trying to raise Revenue to:
Pay off two wars, pay off Revenue short-falls of Bush/Cheney Tax Cuts, and much more.-- but -- rather, Mitt Romney signed a Pledge to one man, Grover Norquist.
Grover Norquist's Pledge that Mitt Romney signed:
requires the signer to:December 1, 2011: Norquist said "letting Tax Cuts Expire is not a Tax Hike"
"oppose any and all efforts to increase the marginal income tax rates for individuals and/or businesses … and oppose any net reduction or elimination of deductions and credits, unless matched dollar for dollar by further reducing tax rates."
From National Journal:Today, however, after President Obama said Bush/Cheney Tax Cuts should expire for all those earning over $250,000.00 per year, Mitt Romney called his Puppet Master Norquist a Gawd Damn Fool:
"Grover Norquist advised a room of House Republicans on Thursday that a failure to extend the payroll-tax cut would not be tantamount to raising taxes, regardless of what President Obama and other Democrats say.
“For the president to run around and say not continuing a temporary tax cut is an increase is inaccurate,” Norquist said in an interview after the closed-door meeting with the lawmakers.
From Team Romney:Those words are so meaningless and such clear bullsh!t-- as Romney has already Pledged to one of his Puppet Masters that no matter how much Revenue America needs there is no way in hell Romney will ever, ever, find a means to increase Revenue because his Puppet Master, Norquist, hates a thriving America.
“President Obama’s response to even more bad economic news is a massive tax increase. It just proves again that the President doesn’t have a clue how to get America working again and help the middle class. The President’s latest bad idea is to raise taxes on families, job creators, and small businesses. Almost half a million fewer Americans are working today than the day Barack Obama took office, and we’ve just come through the worst job creation quarter in two years. Unlike President Obama, Governor Romney understands that the last thing we need to do in this economy is raise taxes on anyone. He has a plan to permanently lower marginal rates, help middle-class Americans save and invest, and jumpstart economic growth and job creation.”
So, why doesn't Team Romney just come out and say the truth? Why doesn't Romney say, "Look, I am beholden to one man, Grover Norquist and he wants to "inflict pain" on the People, "like when the king would take his opponent's head and spike it on a pole for everyone to see"
Obviously, if Mitt Romney were to become President, his oath to office to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God” would be hollow words as Mitt's Puppet Master is clearly a Domestic Enemy against "the People."
Yes, Mitt Romney's Puppet Master would rather "inflict pain ... like when the king would take his opponent's head and spike it on a pole for everyone to see" as opposed to allow America to become the World Leader in: Education, Exploration of Alternative Energy and anything else that would make this country a great place for all it's People to live and prosper.
It should be noted here:
In 2003, even Dick Cheney admitted Bush/Cheney Tax Cuts are 25% of the Deficit and Dick Cheney went on to say that Congress nor the White House has ever worried about paying off Deficits during war-time nor during recessions./strong>
Thus, if Mitt Romney really gave a sh!t about The People's Finances, then he would support ending the Bush/Cheney Tax Cuts on those earning above $250,000.00 -- but he does not as Mitt's Allegiance is with one man, Grover Norquist who wants to see heads spiked on poles for everyone to see --- ehhhh what a sick dude that Norquist is.
