The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Grover Norquist: Obama Won By Painting Romney As 'A Poopy Head'

Published on Nov 12, 2012 by NewsPoliticsNow2

During an interview with CBS This Morning, anti-tax activist Grover Norquist said that President Barack Obama won his re-election campaign by effectively painting GOP challenger Mitt Romney as a... "poopy head."

Asked by host Norah O'Donnell why conservatives like Norquist are seemingly refusing to change their hardline stance on not raising taxes, the Americans for Tax Reform founder replied that last week's election proved that higher taxes are not a popular idea, citing the House of Representatives staying solidly Republican, with a commitment to low taxes. He also noted that President Obama's campaign itself never seemed to focus on raising any taxes:

The president was elected on the basis that he was not Romney and that Romney was a poopy-head and you should vote against Romney. [Obama] won by two points, but he didn't make the case for higher taxes and higher spending. He kind of sounded like the opposite.

Seemingly taken aback by the scatological terminology, O'Donnell pushed back at Norquist:

I'm not sure that's what the president called Mitt Romney. That's not the debate. The debate that was had — and I listened slowly to it — he said very clearly throughout the debate that the wealthiest Americans should pay more and he won eight of the nine battleground states and Republicans failed to reclaim the White House or the Senate. What about the exit polls that show a broad support for raising taxes on the wealthiest Americans. You're wrong?

Norquest responded that polls show 63% of Americans are against raising taxes to pay down the national debt.

Oh my how far the Wizard of GOP Oz has fallen.

And yet the Republican Munchkins no doubt, will still march to his unelected tune.

No matter how many times you repeat them Grover, your unproven theories, it won't make them true:

Tax Cuts for Millionaires does NOT Create Jobs!

Your Trickle-Down theory, keeps trickling those Millionaire Tax Cuts to China, and to the Caymans.

Polls backup Senator Sanders -- Now's the time to Tax the Rich
by jamess -- Nov 10, 2012

Someone needs to start calling Grover Norquist what he really is, an Unelected Shill for Millionaires, with no loyalty to America, in other words a Damn-lying Lobbyist.

With a worn-out creaky old soap-box, to boot.  

You know, just another GOP has-been. Without a Tax Cut WIN to stand on.
