2010 VIDEO: "They're betting that between now and November you're going to come down with amnesia... They drove our economy into a ditch."


I haven't forgotten. Have you forgotten? If anyone you know has, please throw some cold water in their faces and show them this:


Excerpt from President Obama remarks on September 6, 2010 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin:

"So basically here's what this election comes down to. They're betting that between now and November you're going to come down with amnesia. They figure you're going to forget what there agenda did to this country. They think you'll just believe that they've changed. These are the folks whose policies help devastate our middle class they drove our economy into a ditch.

And we got in there and put on our boots. And we pushed and we shoved and we were sweating. These guys were standing, watching us, sipping on a Slurpee. And they were pointing at us saying 'how come you're not pushing harder? how come you're not pushing faster?' And then when we finally got the car up--and it's got a few dings and a few dents. It's got some mud on it. We're going to have to do some work on it. They point out to everybody else and say:

'Look what these guys did to your car!'

After we got it out of the ditch, and then they got the nerve to ask for the keys back. I don't want to give them the keys back. They don't know how to drive."


2010 VIDEO- Mitt Romney: You don't understand the economy unless you had a job


Oh Willard, Willard, when will you realize that your frauditude can be recorded and played back? Who needs "gotcha questions" when there are so many of these videos floating around?


May 19-21, 2010 - At Skybridge Capital's Alternatives Conference 2010, Mitt Romney says that those who have never had a job in the private sector don't understand how the economy works. Isn't that what Hilary Rosen said about Ann Romney? Romney also says, if you've never signed the FRONT of a payroll check, you don't understand how the economy works. I'm not sure if he meant to say "the back of a payroll check," or if he actually means that only business owners know about the economy.


Every so often, Paddy and I do something here at TPC that we don't like doing: We reluctantly pass the hat for donations, a necessary evil. We need to raise funds so we don’t have to worry about expenses for the next three months, both for site upkeep and our own mounting bills.

We post requests here and we tweet and we beg and we hope.

We also totally understand if you can't. And our fundraising goal is way, way less than nearly every site we know of, because we know our readers are not wealthy. Like you, we're literally scraping by.

To those who are able, please remember, without donations, we have no Political Carnival. We have no way to fight for you, for our principles, or just to make you laugh from time to time. Nor do we have any way to upgrade, pay for servers and other equipment needed to bring you breaking news, commentary and snarkitude.

So please indulge us, please understand that we truly do not like asking, we have no other way to pay for necessities, and unlike Ann Romney, we have no choice.


That said, here's how to donate:

Donate to The Political Carnival using WePay

PLEASE NOTE: TO USE PAYPAL, CLICK ON CHIP-IN WIDGET, the button in the right side bar has disappeared. We're working on it.

You can donate at any time by using the PayPal donate buttons in the sidebar (now with requested WePay!), or if you need a snail mail addy, feel free to email

In addition, if anyone wants to sponsor us for three months with an ad in the sidebar, please email Paddy. Since it’s an election year, any ad will be getting increased views.

BONUS! We’re doing something special this time around and giving away two of our brand spankin’ new TPC t-shirts to random donors! We’ll draw names out of the proverbial hat and let you know. (You can’t even buy these yet.)

So, to be the one of the first IN THE WORLD to sport your Political Carnival t-shirt, drop a little coinage in the kitty!

Please never forget that we truly appreciate you guys with or without the donations. Every single day.
