Many thanks to alert BMGer davemb for his link to Hey Mitt! Dogs don’t go there! (I must also digress for a moment and reiterate that about 4.6 million Americans, two percent of voters, believe Romney’s first name is “Mittens,” Time reports):
More from the Gingrich campaign on the flip about Romney and dogs, including rarely-seen footage of the Fox “Seamus” interview in which Romney claims the dog loved his 12-hour expedition.
Barney Frank was asked recently about Sean Bielat, who is apparently planning to run again in MA after having moved to PA. Here was the Congressman’s response, via his office (email no link):
My opponent in 2010, Republican Sean Bielat, moved to Massachusetts to run against me and then moved back to Pennsylvania after he lost the race. He must have moved to Punxsutawney. When he didn’t see my shadow – I decided to retire at the end of my current term – he did a U-turn and headed back to Massachusetts to run again. Groundhog Day comes early this year.
Interestingly, Bielat’s personality in the last campaign was strikingly similar to that of Bill Murray at the start of his fine documentary Groundhog Day. Frank crushed him in the election.
Romney Vows to Undo Everything Obama Has Done: ‘I Will Make Bin Laden Alive Again;’ Calls Slain al-Qaeda Leader a Job Creator
MANCHESTER, NH (The Borowitz Report) – In a rousing victory speech in New Hampshire last night, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney vowed to undo everything Barack Obama has done as President, promising his supporters, “I will make Osama bin Laden alive again.”
Mr. Romney called the assassination of bin Laden “just one of the many mistakes this President has made,” adding, “Say what you will about Osama bin Laden, the man was a job creator.” …
The reanimation of the slain al-Qaeda leader is just the first of many steps Mr. Romney plans to take in his effort to get the USA “back to exactly how it was” before Mr. Obama took office.
“As President, I will immediately close down GM and Chrysler and put thousands of Americans out on the street,” he said. “And then I will try to get a hold of the DNA of Qaddafi.”
Obama Openly Asks Nation Why On Earth He Would Want To Serve For Another Term
PITTSBURGH—Citing three years of exhausting partisan politics, constant gridlock in Congress, and an overall feeling that the entire nation has “completely lost it,” President Barack Obama openly asked a campaign-rally crowd Tuesday why he’d want to serve another term as president of “this godforsaken country.” …
“I’m dead serious,” the president continued, saying that any reasonable person would have walked away the moment the Senate minority leader announced his main priority—above creating jobs and improving American health care—was to make Obama a one-term president. “I’m asking if anybody out there can come up with even one reason why I’d want to endure this unmitigated shit show for another minute, let alone through 2016. What’s in it for me, exactly? Can anyone answer that? Anyone at all?”
After a long silence during which crowd members mostly just shuffled their feet and stared at the ground, Obama said, “Yeah, that’s what I thought.”
