VIDEO-- Jeb's flip-floppy day. As for Bush 2016, Herman Cain says, "Not so fast, Kimosabe!"


jeb bush


Jeb Bush wishes Romney were president, and his poor little heart is broken because Obama won a second term and Willard lost. Bush clearly admires the failed candidate because he's doing his best impression of all those infamous Mitt flip flops:

TPM: Jeb Bush made a surprising return to the immigration reform debate by announcing he no longer supports a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. But after a backlash from immigration activists, he seems to be opening the door the slightest bit to changing his mind once again.

Not the best role model, Jeb. You may want to think that strategy through before you find yourself flailing around in that vast, losery, Etch A Sketchy political abyss.

VIDEO: Within one minute, John Boehner flip-flops on the sequester's impact on the economy


boehner meet the press

On Meet the Press today, John Boehner did an about-face on whether or not the sequester will have an impact on the U.S. economy, and he managed to do that within a one minute span.

Not only did he present his usual spin, but he also made our heads spin.

David Gregory asked him:

"Is this gonna hurt the economy? Will it hurt economic recovery?"

Boehner's response, at about :31...

"I don't know whether it's gonna hurt the economy or not."

... vs. Boehner, about one minute later, when David Gregory said:

"You called the sequester dangerous and it quote "threatens U.S. national security." Did you exaggerate?"

... to which Boehner replied, at about 1:25...

"I am concerned about its impact on our economy..."

He must be trying to compete with Mitt and Ann Romney's comical interviews on "Fox News Sunday."

Maybe Willard and The Boehner should challenge each other to a flip-flop-off. And if that doesn't appeal to them, how about a nice game of Kick the Hypocrisy Down the Road?

Cartoons of the Day- Mitt Romney Loves Fema... Now




PhotOH! New Yorker: Mitt Romney's tattoos. Oh, and new poll says Pres. Obama leads in Ohio 51-47



And this just in, via PPP:

PPP's newest Ohio poll finds Barack Obama leading Mitt Romney 51-47, up from a 49-48 margin a week ago.

It's starting to look like Obama might have turned the corner with his wins in the second and third debates. ... Obama's approval is on positive ground at 51/48, while Romney's favorability is in negative territory at 47/51. Ohioans trust Obama over Romney on both the economy (52/46) and foreign policy (54/44).

Obama's built up a big lead among early voters in the state.

VIDEO: Mitt Romney's "solution" to extremism against women? Promote the extremists.



In 2011, Mitt Romney was caught on camera ranting, “We should have a prohibition on abortion… You’re trying to tell me that I’m not a faithful Mormon!”

He got a little testy when the radio host tried to nail him on his Romnesia.

Know who else is all over Willard and Todd Akin's personhood co-sponsor Paul Ryan? The man who will be re-elected for another four years.

He's making sure America knows that Romney is backing Richard Mourdock, the guy who says rape pregnancies are "intended by God."

America needs to know that this is Republican policy now, and that it is no longer out of the norm for the GOP. Is being this offensive what Romney meant by "big change"?

If his kind of extremism is "big change" it's not the kind we can believe in.


Mitt Romney's "solution to extremism against women? Promote the extremists.



"Which do you believe? What Mitt Romney's TV ads say about women or what Mitt Romney himself says:"

Mitt Romney:

"Do I believe Supreme Court decisions should overturn Roe v. Wade? Yes."
"And it would be my preference that they reverse Roe v. Wade."
"Hopefully reverse Roe v. Wade."
"Overturn Roe v. Wade"
"Planned Parenthood, we're going to get rid of that."
"I'll cut off funding to Planned Parenthood."


"No matter what Mitt Romney's ads say we know what he'll do."


2011 VIDEO-- Mitt Romney: "We should have a prohibition on abortion... You're trying to tell me that I'm not a faithful Mormon!"



Mitt Romney on Jan Mickelson's show on WHO-AM in Des Moines. At about 6:20, Romney starts in on Roe v. Wade:

"The right course on Roe v. Wade is to have it overturned."

"We should have a prohibition on abortion"

"I was effectively pro-choice some years ago... I didn't ever call myself pro-choice. I said I would preserve and protect the laws as it existed..."

At about 8:50, he gets into an argument about his religion, his "I'm not gonna apologize" for being pro-life" flip flop, and more. Then at about 10:50, off air, they get into a more heated conversation about Mormonism and whether Willard is consistent with his faith:

"Don't confuse with what I do as a member of my faith with what I think should be done by government."

After 13:54 things got more intense:

"Every Mormon should be pro-life? ... You're WRONG!"

At about 15:00:

"You don't understand my faith like I do, so give me for a moment as being a leader of my church... I understand my church better than you do.... You don't believe that, do you?!"

At about 17:10, things got more heated, for Pete's sake:

Jan: "I take this stuff real seriously..."

Mitt: "For me it's just all frivolous [sarcasm]... Come on, I'm running for president!... You're not giving me the opportunity to explain to you that my faith has very strong beliefs that if I commit abortion, encourage an abortion... I was beaten up in Boston because I pointed out time and time again that I encourage girls NOT to get abortions."

Then he went on to say his church allows others to make their own choice, "I disagree with that view. ..  We should have ... a prohibition on abortion."

"I don't like coming on the air and having you come after my church... You're trying to tell me I'm not a faithful Mormon!"

"I'm not running to talk about Mormonism."

As governor, "I vetoed any bill that was in favor of choice."

There's your calm, cool, collected Mr. Moderate.

on Dec 12, 2011:

Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney appears in this video as he sat down with an Iowa radio talk show host when an "intense" conversation ensued. Mr. Romney has claimed (with Katie Couric) that he'd unwittingly been captured on hidden camera. There were in fact two camcorders in plain site, both on tripods.
