I watched a documentary the other night about Gov. Huey P. Long in Louisiana. He promised all the poor people he would tax the rich and give the money to them. It worked; he got elected and reelected.
Sound like someone currently in the White House??

"A government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul."
-- George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)
"The government consists of a gang of men exactly like you and me. They have, taking one with another, no special talent for the business of government; they have only a talent for getting and holding office. Their principal device to that end is to search out groups who pant and pine for something they can't get and to promise to give it to them. Nine times out of ten that promise is worth nothing. The tenth time is made good by looting A to satisfy B. In other words, government is a broker in pillage, and every election is sort of an advance auction sale of stolen goods." [H. L. Mencken]

"It is the invariable habit of bureaucracies, at all times and everywhere, to assume...that every citizen is a criminal. Their one apparent purpose, pursued with a relentless and furious diligence, is to convert the assumption into a fact. They hunt endlessly for proofs, and, when proofs are lacking, for mere suspicions. The moment they become aware of a definite citizen, John Doe, seeking what is his right under the law, they begin searching feverishly for an excuse for withholding it from him." --H.L. Mencken

Spag,

Romney has never picked up a hammer and just doesn't have the willingnes, fire in the belly or appetite to use one . ZZZZZZZZZZ

Romney is the living definition of "country club Republican", the kind that plagues Republicans locally. I thought we got rid of their destructive influence years ago, but I guess I was wrong.

Fred, Romney wants to be president so bad that I think he will do it. He has demonstrated that his campaign can throw punches.

"Barack Obama and the Democrats are not serious about reducing the deficit. If they were, then they would end their focus on tax increases for the "rich" and instead start talking about serious cuts in spending."

Too bad the Republicans are equally addicted to government spending in the form of corporate welfare.

Mitt's "country club Republican" wife Ann can throw some punches as well. Perhaps Mitt and his campaign aides will utilize her abilities on the trail in light of the fact polls are indicating Mitt has a problem with the women vote.

Yes, certain Republicans, and almost all Democrats (including the bleating hearts for "fairness") are guilty of that.

Stormy

Obama, unlike many people, did not learn everything he needed to know in kindergarten. Rock are hard, water is wet, and life ain't fair.
