Somehow Da Perfessa in this Friday Night Comics Collection forgot David Letterman. So Maddow repeats the same lie after Letterman admits Obummer lied about Romney and the Detroit bailout.

LETTERMAN: Here’s what upset me last night, this playing fast and loose with facts. And the President Obama cites the op-ed piece that Romney wrote about Detroit, let ‘em go bankrupt, let ‘em go bankrupt. And last night he brings it up again — oh no, governor, you said let ‘em go bankrupt, blah blah blah, let ‘em go bankrupt. And Mitt said, no no, check the thing, check the thing, check the thing. Now, I don’t care whether you’re Republican or Democrat, you want your president to be telling the truth. You want the contender to be lying. (Maddow and the audience laugh). And so when we found out today or soon thereafter that, in fact, President Obama was not telling the truth about what was excerpted from that op-ed piece, I felt discouraged. [PuddyEmphasis]

Ann Telnaes: Romney and Obama clones on drones.

Yes Ann, Obummer has been acting like GWBush on drone use and Romney agrees with correct thinking. That must suck eh Ann? Well you are a crazed loon Ann; that’s why your commentary always makes the Friday Night Comics!

Retired Army Col. Lawrence Wilkerson

“My party, unfortunately, is the bastion of those people — not all of them, but most of them — who are still basing their positions on race. Let me just be candid: My party is full of racists, and the real reason a considerable portion of my party wants President Obama out of the White House has nothing to do with the content of his character, nothing to do with his competence as commander-in-chief and president, and everything to do with the color of his skin, and that’s despicable.”

Republican racists. I’m reminded of Bob and his crazed fantasies of white militias roaming the streets of Detroit shooting blacks. I’m also reminded how Bob, after reading a debunked fake tweet posted along with faked photos on an extremist right-wing hate site, concluded that Trayvon Martin, a black teen shot dead while innocently walking home from a 7/11 store, got what was coming to him.

Confused by Federal Reserve policies? And by the debates swirling around them? These two articles may help focus your perceptions …

1) The first author explains why he thinks QE3 is a win-win for the government and consumers alike.

2) The second author, quoting a famous hedge fund manager, argues QE3 is holding back the recovery.

6. Liberal Scientist is a Dirty Fucking Socialist Hippie spews:

Puddl @1 is splitting the tiniest of hairs and is trying to leverage the smoke and dust Romney has kicked up over the subject to confuse things.

It’s unfortunate that Letterman is coming down the way he is, but I think Maddow’s pushback was just fine, and appropriately calibrated for a guest on the show of the guy making the mistake.

Just as with foreign policy, Romney is trying to latch onto the success of the auto bailout as engineered by Obama – pretending that what Obama did was the same as Romney’s ‘private bankrupcy’ which was manifestly unworkable at the time. Romeny would have presided over a process that would have led to the liquidation of the auto companies, and in turn the devastation of their suppliers. Moreover, ‘bankrupcy’ would have allowed the abrogation of contracts and pensions – feature not bug for Republicans – and dealt a body blow to union workers all over the country.

Romney is counting on the fiction that there was private capital available, and peoples’ short memories and unfamiliarity with bankruptcy processes.

Puddl is of course just spewing the right wing yawp du jour – google ‘letterman calls out obama’ and you get the sources of puddl’s incisive commentary. *eye roll*

7. Liberal Scientist is a Dirty Fucking Socialist Hippie spews:

Do Republicans really want a discussion of the auto bailout? Or is puddl just full of shit du jour?

But Summers, echoing the opinion of industry experts, CEOs, and Republican politicians in Michigan who supported the bailout, said the kind of resources necessary were impossible to find in the private sector under any circumstances.

The auto rescue ended up requiring about $80 billion in aid from across the Bush and Obama administrations. That would have been by far the biggest debtor-in-possession bankruptcy loan in history had the private sector stepped in per Romney’s plan. The previous record? $8 billion to Lyondell Chemical in early 2009 — and it came with huge interest rates and fees.

More here.

Romney is lying. Again.

Full of shit du jour. Always..

9. Liberal Scientist is a Dirty Fucking Socialist Hippie spews:

If Republican ideas are so transcendently fantastic, why do they have to lie about them?

Why did Willard have to throw overboard every foreign policy position he’s ever had, and, importantly, is held by his advisers like Senor and Bolton, Hayden, Black and Lehman, when he bear-hugged and clinched Obama in the third debate?

Why, when right-wing Christianist he-man woman haters like Akin and Mourdock speak what’s in their hearts, revealing the actual positions of the misogynist right, does Willard and the rest of the Republican establishment go to ground?

Why, when discussing the most important single maneuver of the response to the Bush Depression, the auto bailout, does Romney try his best to portray what Obama did as Romney’s own plan, when it clearly was not?

Flim-flam man. Huckster. Grifter. Unctuous used car salesman. Romney.

10. Roger Rabbit spews:

@9 “Why did Willard … bear-hugged and clinched Obama in the third debate?”

Here’s why:

“For anyone wondering why Mitt Romney avoided drawing any distinctions between his foreign-policy plans and those of Barack Obama last night, this should clear it up. This is the advice he’s getting from the Republican Party foreign-policy elite, which remains largely composed of neoconservatives.

“They clearly realise that, their own preferences notwithstanding, most American voters are not interested in a more confrontational foreign policy that runs the risk of entangling America in further conflict in the Middle East. So they’re dialing it down for the remainder of the campaign.

“Does this indicate that Mr Romney would, as president, be less confrontational abroad than he sounded in his campaign for the Republican nomination? If he continues to follow Bill Kristol’s advice on foreign policy most of the time, I doubt it. We know what Mr Kristol’s foreign policy looks like. On Iran: ‘It’s long since been time for the United States to speak to this regime in the language it understands—force.’ On Syria: ‘(T)he United States — working with European allies, Turkey, and other regional partners—should advance a new strategy that uses combined airpower to impose a safe zone in northern Syria.’ On Afghanistan: ‘(T)o say we’re ending our war on schedule means we’re not fighting our war to win.’

“[War] is the neoconservative foreign-policy prescription. It hasn’t changed just because they’ve recognised that their candidate needs to appear conciliatory and say the word ‘peace’ a lot in order to get elected.”

Roger Rabbit Commentary: In short, Romney is deceiving voters about what his foreign policy will be, because the neocons whose tune he dances to told him to, because they know voters won’t vote for their agenda of belligerency and armed conflict.

Pretending to be something other than what you are is an electioneering tactic the GOP has adopted across the board — from Romney to Rob McKenna to Suzie Hutchinson. Have you noticed that GOP candidates’ yard signs consistently display their party affiliation inconspicuously or not at all? That’s how toxic the GOP brand has become, and not just because of Dubya, but because they’re ALL crazy, reckless, and irresponsible.

11. YLB spews:

10 – You need to look no further than George W. Bush..

That phoney tried to sell himself as some kind of moderate on foreign policy criticizing the Clinton Administration on Bosnia.

He said he wasn’t going to do stuff like Bosnia.

Fucking liar trying to get votes on that bullshit.

R-Money is a liar. A more brazen liar than Bush only because he’s been lying the whole 5 or 6 years he’s been jonesing for the White House.

12. Liberal Scientist is a Dirty Fucking Socialist Hippie spews:

I remember that. No ‘nation building’. I think they used the term ‘humble foreign policy’.

Echos of ‘we can’t kill our way out’ of these problems.


13. Piltdown Man spews:

full on Bush Derangement Syndrome…years after he left office.

perhaps the condition in not curable.

14. Roger Rabbit spews:

@13 You’re too stupid to realize our country is still suffering from effects of the Civil War, even though it ended 147 years ago. What makes you think the aftereffects of the Bush presidency will completely disappear in just 4 short years? This is the Bush Economy, stupid, and it’s going to take many more years for us to dig our way out of it.

15. YLB spews:

full on Bush Derangement Syndrome

Far from it. Facts are facts. Bush LIED about foreign policy in 2000 to look moderate in order to get votes. Bush also LIED about views on the Kyoto treaty – again to paint himself as a moderate.

Full on head up your ass syndrome on your part. Heh. Like that’s anything new.

21. Puddybud spews:

Charles Woods, father of slain ex-Navy seal Tyrone Woods is asking why Obummer and his sadministration are lying. Obummer is mum of course. They are waiting for all the “facts”.

Yeah, how fucking irresponsible, waiting for people to, you know, investigate, and, like, find facts and put together exactly what happened.

Why doesn’t he just watch Greta VanSustern and make decisions on national security the way puddl decides what direction the sun rises – by listening to Roger Ailes!

Yeah! That’s the ticket!!

23. Puddybud spews:

I wonder if Obummer was eating popcorn during the live Benghazi attack live feed. Remember dunceman always said get out the popcorn! He is one of the “prime voices” for HA libtards!

Obummer is worse than Jimmy Carter!

24. Liberal Scientist is a Dirty Fucking Socialist Hippie spews:

Romney said what he mentioned in the debate.

Romeny has said about a dozen different things – that’s the whole problem, Sherlock. Letterman responded to Obama’s critique, and then compared to Mitt’s latest iteration, the one that makes him look responsible for the good result that happened because of Obama’s policies. However, all of them are disingenuous (Romney’s positions) and Mitt’s policy, as best anyone can tell with that serial liar, would have been disastrous for auto industry, their suppliers, and the country as a whole.

I SOOOOO look forward to Nov 7, when we won’t have to play Whac-A-Mole with Romney’s positions and his idiot minions around here.

Romney has more positions than the Kama Sutra, and they’re all WAY less fun.

The last time the Des Moines Register endorsed a Republican was Richard Nixon. That worked out well, didn’t it? Also, why do you wingnuts talk about media endorsements when you continually whine about the leftist bent of the media? You are, of course, wrong about the media. It is corporatist and rightwing, but I wonder why you would ever cite an endorsement from a newspaper, given what you say about the press.

Panetta claims the military commanders made the decision not to help Benghazi

WASHINGTON — Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta said Thursday that he and top military commanders “felt very strongly” that deploying American forces to defend against the fatal attack last month on the United States diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, was too risky because they did not have a clear picture of what was happening on the ground.

So is Leon throwing these two guys, one Navy and one Army under de Obummer bus for Benghazi?

So where is da paper trail Obummer?

35. Puddybud spews:

Good Housekeeping Talks with Ann Romney

Good Housekeeping: Can you tell me, what campaign issue is closest to your heart?

Ann Romney: I’ve been a First Lady of the State. I have seen what happens to people’s lives if they don’t get a proper education. And we know the answers to that. The charter schools have provided the answers. The teachers’ unions are preventing those things from happening, from bringing real change to our educational system. We need to throw out the system.

Boeing loses federal labor case in S. Carolina

The Boeing Co. has lost the latest round with the National Labor Relations Board over actions the company took at its South Carolina facility.
Boeing broke federal labor law by banning talk of unions on company time at its North Charleston site, an administrative law judge found in a ruling issued Friday. The jet maker can’t prohibit workers from talking about unions if it allows them to talk about other topics not related to work, the judge wrote.

In his ruling, administrative law judge William Nelson Cates instructed Boeing to cease the ban on talking about the union at the South Carolina site. Boeing also has to post notices at the North Charleston facility acknowledging that it violated labor law and informing workers of their rights.

44. Puddybud spews:

The teachers’ unions are preventing those things from happening, from bringing real change to our educational system. We need to throw out the system.

Ann Romney is right again… More facts for FlubScout… head will explode…

American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten’s pay jumped to $407,323 between 2010 and 2011, while her counterpart at the National Education Association, Dennis Van Roekel, got a raise to $362,644. Factor in stipends and other paid expenses and Weingarten took in $493,859 and Van Roekel $460,060 for 2011.

Now per checkmated, facts are facts no matter where the source, so it sucks to be the FlubScout. Another flub!

Remember FlubScout… this is the same Randi Weingarten who attacked Rahmbo Dead Fish Emanuel during the Chicago teacher strike… Oh Noes… Puddy used FDL…

Ann is right… the teachers union only cares about it’s power not about the children. Puddy already posted the 2009 link where the union president said it’s about the union not the children. Did you forget that too FlubScout?

45. MikeBoyScout spews:

puddl is clearly doing his White Goodman impersonation again.

47. Puddybud spews:

FlubScout… Must be cuz your head exploded over the facts. Puddy realizes reading is fundamental and you are just mental! Shorter version… teacher’s unions only in it for themselves not the children.

Can you dig it?

48. Puddybud spews:

On noes… dunceman@46 arrived… Puddy already posted the link where the teachers union president said it’s about the union not the teachers… Apparently that fact wasn’t on dunceman’s reading list of left wrong sites!

49. Puddybud spews:

Michael Tomasky with his head up de Obummer ASS had it explode on The Daily Beast. Hilarious!

50. Liberal Scientist is a Dirty Fucking Socialist Hippie spews:

It’s a union, idiot.

The fiduciary duty of a union is to represent its members. In this case, teachers, dimwit.

Just like the UAW has its foremost concern auto workers; they’re only indirectly responsible for the quality of any of Willard’s several Cadillacs.

Similarly, the quality of education is the primary responsibility of the school board and school system. However, and like the UAW or any other union, organized workers getting a fair deal and having a voice in their workplace create a better product.

So, the teachers’ union is primarily responsible for giving a united voice to teachers, and indirectly, promote better education of children.

Morons like you will continue to either willfully NOT understanding that distinction, or are too stupid to do so.

51. MikeBoyScout spews:

@47 Uncle Puddles,
I don’t concur with your assessment that “teacher’s unions only in it for themselves“, but isn’t the unregulated pursuit of economic self interest the corner stone of your whole belief system?

If what you are asserting is true, then why is the pursuit of self interest on the part of teachers bad?

52. YLB spews:

Dennis Van Roekel, got a raise to $362,644. Factor in stipends and other paid expenses and Weingarten took in $493,859 and Van Roekel $460,060 for 2011.

53. Puddybud spews:

Oh FlubScout… Where are we in world relationship to math and reading scores? Since the union thugs took over in 1965 America has dropped from fourth to 25th in math, 17th in science and 14th in reading. And we’ve thrown untold $$$Billions against the problem.

@53 Uncle Puddles,

Did we forget history in your tally?
If we were to throw out the African American students statistics in 2012 like we did in 1965 we’d be fine.

See, Uncle Puddles, in 1965 segregated and under funded schools were the norm in the USA. A person of your ancestry wasn’t really entitled to a funded education.

It was, in part, teacher’s unions that fought for desegregation of our schools.

Try to remember the next time you bring up comparative statistics of today to a point in our racist past just what you are comparing Uncle Puddles.

57. Puddybud spews:

I believe you said I can track you “everywhere”.

Puddy said it correctly. You “tracked” Puddy other places ylbuttspigot. Puddy didn’t mention where Puddy was. You told the world ylbuttspigot. Can’t backtrack out of it now! Puddy PWNS you 24×7. Go back and search that databaze on your silly ASS. Or did you write those “search string” functions to ignore your silliness?

Orders? Oh you got smacked so bad now you think it’s orders?


58. Puddybud spews:

Oh my FlubScout now brings up teachers unions leading desegregation so that’s why we are now 25th in math, 17th in science and 14th in reading? Desegregation? Adding de black masses to da mix? That’s why we dropped FlubScout? Really? Wow!

Chris Christie Praises Obama For Hurricane Sandy Preparation
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) put aside his campaigning for Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney on Sunday to praise President Barack Obama for his responsiveness to the Garden State’s needs in preparing for Hurricane Sandy.

68. Serial Conservative spews:

By election day Ohio will be polling D + 15 in order to keep Obama in the lead.

…the Ohio polls have actually become more Democratic since the post-DNC polls that gave Obama the significant bounce that led many pundits to declare Romney’s chances in Ohio DOA. Of all Ohio polls from September 7 to September 19, Obama held an average lead of 4.2 points, with a Democratic party-ID advantage of 5.7 points. Today Obama leads by 2.1 points, with a party-ID advantage of 6.3 points. In the last month, while Romney has had surges in polls all over the country, the polling in Ohio has actually found more Democrats even while Obama’s lead was cut in half.

69. Serial Conservative spews:

66, normally I cannot stand Christie, but on this one, he is doing what a Governor should be. I mean, right now is not the time for politics. Governor Cuomo and Mayor Bloomberg had a tough call to make, and that was when to pull the plug on the MTA, as an abrupt shutdown is not the way to go. THey had to make the call by this morning to start the orderly shutdown by the evening. Remember, the NYC Subway runs 24-7 on most of it’s lines, carries several million people a day.

I agree though, Lugar, Murkowski, Castle, are the name of a few Republican Moderates that lost primaries(but Murkowski made it in the primary). Lincoln Chafee’s father, Sen. John Chaffee was a great man, now, just like his son, would be too moderate for the GOP. In 2006, then Republican Senator, now Independent Governor, Lincoln Chafee barely survived the primary and lost the general election.

I was channel surfing earlier after an afternoon knocking on doors, and saw that Fox has a segment titled “Benghazi!!!” – not Hannity or Greta discussing it, but a full-on show devoted to the Greatest Scandal of the Century ™.

Now I see taht McCain has helpfully put it in perspective, letting us all know that BENGHAZI!! ™ was worse than Watergate.

Oh what the rubes will swallow!

What dunceman can’t fathom being the dunceman of HA… If this happened while a Republican president was in office… it would be the number one story for the last 6 weeks on every three letter channel. What did whom know and when did they know it.

Alas, dunceman wears the duncecap well!

This ain’t 2008.

In the current tracking poll, Gallup finds that the 10-point advantage for Democrats has now turned into a 1-point Republican advantage. The current party breakdown is now 35 percent Democrats, 36 percent Republicans, and 29 percent independents. And just in like 2008, that 1-point advantage increases when independents are asked which party they typically lean to, with 49 percent identifying as Republicans and 46 percent as Democrats. That number backs up the trends in other polling showing Romney leading among independents by large margins.

Independents swinging heavily toward Romney. Call it the Republican storm surge.

79. Serial Conservative spews:

WaPo/ABC has Romney up one point nationally. If you believe that the turnout in 2012, D +7, will be the same as the turnout in 2008, that is.

…Mitt Romney’s lead among independents. He wins those 55/40, an overwhelming advantage in a group that Obama won by eight in 2008 on his way to a seven-point win overall in a big Democratic turnout. That’s a 23-point shift in the gap among roughly 30% of the electorate.

What does it take to get HA libbies to look at crosstabs?

How about a Rasmussen poll showing Romney with a lead in OH?

He’s up 50/48.

Two things:

D/R/I has an even 38% for the major parties. So, no Dem turnout advantage. If one looks at the Gallup polls and how OH has performed traditionally relative to the rest of the country, this makes sense.

Obama is leading independents in this poll. On the Mormon Study thread I pointed out that almost all of the polls have Romney winning the OH independent votes, so this is another reason to be a little skeptical.

Still, Romney with a lead in an Ohio poll.

Huge storm hits Philly. Weak-ass Dems there sit around waiting for someone else to help them with their problems and are too incompetent to make it to the polls on November 6th.


Mitt Romney’s super PAC, Restore our Future, is launching an 11th-hour ad blitz in Pennsylvania, POLITICO has learned.

ROF is going up Tuesday with a $2.1 million ad buy across every Pennsylvania market, including pricey Philadelphia.

@ 75

Not the best week for ‘What did the president know and when did he know it?’ questions, Lib Sci.

The incumbent president has a credibility gap.

The phenomenon of a credibility gap dates to the Vietnam War and the presidency of Lyndon Johnson. The charge then was that LBJ wasn’t leveling with the American people or Congress about Vietnam. The credibility gap was hardly the only thing that caused LBJ to withdraw from the 1968 election, but it eroded support for his presidency.

If you’re Obama, that is.

“B. He must want something.”
He wants two things:
1. He wants New Jersey citizens to be safe.

And when he does, the state government turns to the federal government for help.

And yet, the man you support says this

The Romney campaign said early Monday morning that Romney stood behind a statement first made during a 2011 Republican debate, in which Romney said that the Federal Emergency Management Agency should be disbanded, and its powers either privatized or given to the states.

“Every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that’s the right direction. And if you can go even further, and send it back to the private sector, that’s even better,” said Romney in 2011. Asked by debate moderator John King if that included cutting disaster relief, Romney said, “We cannot — we cannot afford to do those things without jeopardizing the future for our kids.”

Given the chance to back away from the statement, the Romney campaign instead told the Huffington Post that Romney meant what he said.

So, in the future, christie better not come to the federal government for assistance, cause there won’t be any federal government there to fall back on.
Or maybe that will only apply to democratic states, republicans will still aid republican states.
Maybe the states can pay insurance to a private firm who will help for a profit. That works so well in the health care industry. Death panels for state aid anyone?

Wall Street Journal doesn’t like Obama.

Fascist fool,

You make the great argument for conservatives… If you want higher taxes per Obummer, be a good Obummer lemming libtard, send him a check and pay your additional required fair share!

86. Serial conservative spews:

@ 83

1. You morph from Christie acting like a governor should act to some sort of a slam on Romney because of his position on the federalism of disaster response?

2. Check out how Obama handles disaster and and FEMA funding in a sequestration scenario.

3. Why might Romney want states controlling disaster relief funding?

…The Federal Emergency Management Agency ruled that the area did not meet the criteria for aid despite significant damage to scores of homes and other properties in Washington, Carter and Unicoi counties.

87. No Time for Fascists spews:

1. Yup. Just pointing out if romney gets his way, christie won’t be able to call on the federal government any more to keep his people safe. (your words)
2. sequestration scenario = If the republicans were not obstructionist, we wouldn’t have a sequestration scenario scenario. What do you expect from a party who would crash the economy and the government just to get back into power.
3. Typical republican talking point. Because something happened that they don’t like, the whole thing was a failure. bush failed to stop 9-11 but I don’t hear you advocating getting rid of the republican party.
You failed to mention the fact that “There was an $8.5 million threshold for the area to qualify for federal dollars to help residents rebuild what raging flood water swept away or destroyed”. The stated awarded only $0.3 mill to the area. So while I get the people are upset they didn’t get federal aid, it was a state issue they could and did handle. Wait….you are upset that that federal government let the STATE pay for something? What kind of Republican are you?

88. Puddybud spews:

Puddy wondered why dunceman hasn’t posted any new Scott Brown Lieahantas/Fauxcohantas polls… braying like an ekim stuck goat… From the leftist Boston Globe…

Brown holds a razor-thin 45 percent to 43 percent lead over Warren among likely voters

Now we see why!

89. Puddybud spews:

If the republicans were not obstructionist, we wouldn’t have a sequestration scenario scenario.

What a crock from the fascist fool… Remember Bowles Simpson? Obummer wouldn’t be in this position if he had done what that commission said! Remember Obummer is the preznit not Romney. Can’t compare the two here!

Minnesota probably isn’t going the way Obama wants it to be going. Bill Clinton will try to minimize the onslaught by visiting tomorrow.

In which state is Romney sweeping newspaper endorsements? MANY UPDATES

UPDATE: Star Tribune in Minneapolis/St. Paul today endorses Obama. That brings the tally of endorsements in MN to 24 for Romney, one for Obama.
