GOP Mean Machine Doubles Down on Mitt’s “Women & Children Last” Agenda

Boehner Will Try to Extend Bush Tax Cuts for Another Year

House Speaker John Boehner told CNBC that he would move legislation to extend the current tax rates for another year.

The so-called Bush tax cuts were extended once already but are due to expire at the end of the year.

 

Said Boehner: “The reason this isn’t permanent is that — and only for a year — is that we really do want to fix our tax code, both the corporate code and the personal code, bring down tax rates, get rid of all the excess deductions and credits and all the carve-outs and nonsense that we have in the code today.”

Mean Mitt’s Record as Governor: “Severely Conservative”, Dangerous to Pets, Families

“The Republican contender was the governor of Massachusetts from January 2003 to January 2007. And during that time, according to the U.S. Labor Department, the state ranked 47th in the entire country in jobs growth. Fourth from last.

The only ones that did worse? Ohio, Michigan and Louisiana. In other words, two rustbelt states and another that lost its biggest city to a hurricane.

The Massachusetts jobs growth over that period, a pitiful 0.9%, badly lagged other high-skill, high-wage, knowledge economy states like New York (2.7%), California (4.7%) and North Carolina (7.6%).

The national average: More than 5%.

This was after four years. So far Obama has been in office for just one year. How was Romney’s performance by his first anniversary?

Fiftieth out of fifty.”

Mitt Takes Lit Hit

That infamous and seemingly immortal tale of Mitt Romney crating his dog on the roof of his car during a 14-hour road trip has already weaseled its way into the narrative of the 2012 campaign and is now splashing its way onto America’s bookshelves.

The Romney family’s now-deceased Irish setter Seamus’ story is being cemented in history in a 64-page satirical book, “Dog on the Roof,” set to be released June 19.

“Politics is hard for most people, including me, to keep their head around,” [Scott] Crider [founder of Dogs Against Romney] said. “Big discussions about universal health care and the debt issues and all these things are really big and complex for busy people to really be able to wrap their heads around.”

“This thing about Seamus cuts right through all that,” he said.

And while the story has already incited pet lovers, pestered the presidential candidate and punctuated attack ads, a national book tour devoted solely to propagating the decades-old event will likely reinvigorate the Seamus saga, which Romney has tried to put to sleep.

“Now for the first time, here is the completely true—and only mildly embellished— shaggy-dog story of Seamus Romney,” reads the books description. “It is the inside (well . . . overhead) look at the Man Who Would Be President and the wild ride that’s sweeping—and bewildering—the nation.”

The book’s intention is to be humorous, and it certainly sounds that way, but many take the story seriously, namely Sean [sic] Crider, the founder of Dogs Against Romney. Crider told ABC News that the “Dog on the Roof” story shows Romney’s “overall appearance of meanness.”

“It’s a character illuminating anecdote about Romney for a lot of people,” Crider told ABC News. “A lot of people are just pure dog lovers and see what he did as being abusive; others see it as a little window about what kind of guy he is.”

Dog on the Roof, for those interested, will be available on bookshelves next month.
