Randi Rhodes: Multiple Choice Mitt
Give Mitt Romney credit—he has found time to lie about abortion, while continuing to lie about taxes, economic plans, and foreign policy. The man is a multi-tasker of mendacity. Mitt said “There’s no legislation with regards to abortion that I’m familiar with that would become part of my agenda.” Mitt is reaching out to people who don’t agree with his past statements to assure them he never means a damned thing he says.
Does Mitt ever say anything that his campaign isn’t forced to contradict within a couple of hours? He’s like a circus elephant parading down Main Street while his handlers follow behind with a bunch of brooms. The campaign issued a statement saying that Mitt is “proudly pro-life and will be a pro-life president.” Maybe the truth is somewhere in the middle. Maybe Mitt only supports 47 percent of life.
Ann Romney went on Fox News and compared President Obama to a petulant child. She didn’t use the word “petulant.” She doesn’t want to confuse the Fox News viewers with unfamiliar vocabulary. Ann said she thought the president was being like someone “in the sandbox that like lost the game and they’re just going to kick sand in someone’s face and say, ‘you liar.’” Somehow I don’t picture little Mitt Romney playing in the sandbox. If Mitt wanted to play in the sand, he was probably flown to a tropical island where he could build sand castles on the beach. Hey, maybe that’s where Mitt first discovered the Cayman Islands! Ann, next time you visit your dancing horse, remember to scrape your boots before you leave. We’re tired of you dragging your horse crap in here.
Jack Welch, who insisted that Obama was cooking the unemployment numbers, has quit his job at Fortune magazine after they compared his job creation numbers to Obama's. Wow! Jack Welch is going to ruin the unemployment numbers for the month of October, even if it means he has to quit his own job to do it! Welch said he was quitting Fortune to get better “traction” elsewhere. Jack, you’re a rich former CEO. Do you really think there’s a better place for you than at a magazine called “Fortune”? I don’t think you’re going to get better traction than at “Fortune”... unless there’s a magazine out there called “Rich Butthole.”
