Liars: Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski

I doubt these MSNBC lying propagandists feel any shame whatsoever, even though they’ve now been busted (hat tip Right Scoop).

Charles Joseph “Joe” Scarborough, liar

Mika Emilie Leonia Brzezinski, liar

Joe responded after the doctored clip with a fake laugh outburst, hands completely covering and rubbing his face, while he muttered “Sweet Jesus” in feigned embarrassment for Romney. Mika offered a patronizing fake apology: “Sorry. I’m sorry. I shouldn’t be so hard on him [Romney].” Both showed outward discomfort in these responses, unable to look into the camera while they lamely attempted to bolster the lie.

Are you terrible at math?

Hair on fire about Mitt’s tax returns?  Let me help you out:  Mitt has earned millions, $0 direct impact on you.  Obama has stolen & wasted trillions of your grandchildren’s yet earned money.  So Obama is very literally a million times worse, and infinitely worse if you have an ounce of intellectual honesty.

keep screamin’, lefties

Why do leftist anti-capitalist economic know-nothings shill for Obama in incoherent, dishonest anti-Bain tirades? To show their undying support for his “acidic Julia Crow politics.” (hat tip Christopher Chantrill at American Thinker).

To those Americans who retain a shred of common sense (again, hat tip Chantrill): Bain took over a failed unionized (What? Union failure? You don’t say!) KC steel plant in 1993, called it GST Steel (Argh! Faux rage from pseudo intellectuals! Did someone say “Halliburton”?), and invested “$100M into the company over ten years.” GST remained very lazily unionized (hat tip Katrina Trinko at National Review Online) during that period, and (surprise, surprise) Bain had to shut ‘er down in 2001.

Keep screamin’, lefties. It’s music to my ears. You’re a stronger asset in defeating Obama than Romney could ever be.

control freaks, divide!

Queue the elitist drone:

Don’t waste your vote. The time has come to… If you don’t jump on the bandwagon now, we’re risking… We need to get behind the electable candidate… There’s no mathematical way… He’s not the most conservative candidate in the race, but… He’s the only candidate who can beat O…

Oh, save your breath already. I’m an informed voter, and I think just fine for myself, thank you. Leave the control freak crapola to the Democrat Party. They’re better at it than you’ll ever be. You’re asking me not to vote my conscience, and instead fall in line with your Karl Rove-ish architectural (*cough*) “genius”? Who elected you more American than I? Why should your vote count more than mine? Sorry, I’m just not as wowed by your superior intellect as you seem to be. Look left if your oversized ego craves the false religion of intelligentsia worship.

Conservatism wins on substance. RINO “lib light” loses every time it’s tried. You worry about your vote – I’ve got mine covered.

A: Romney. Q: Why?

Conservatives have been asking for months “why Romney?”  @marklevinshow has been effectively hammering the point all week, giving Romney supporters ample call time to support their case.  Such calls have been painful listening (caller:  “um, it says here I should say Olympics… private sector… electable… I know he’s not a perfect conservative, but did you notice his perfect hair?… did I mention electable yet?”)  Mark nailed it in his opening monologue last night:

  • Romney tied Santorum in delegates in Michigan
  • Romney had the full weight of the GOP machine behind him in Michigan
  • Romney outspent Santorum 6:1 in Michigan
  • Michigan is one of Romney’s home states
  • Romney beat Santorum in Michigan in 2012 by a much slimmer margin than he beat McCain in Michigan in 2008
  • Romney will not be able to outspend Obama, so on what substance will he run during the general election?

The GOP elite (pardon the hairball) drones on that The Answer is Romney.  I thought Allen Iverson owned that moniker, but I digress.  We conservatives still have our questions:  why so desperate?  What’s the rush?

not Mitt’s moment

Romney congratulated Rick Santorum on his good day.  He quickly changed the subject to Obama.  Standard fare, to be expected from a politician who wants to put a day’s big losses behind him.  But why did he willingly adopt Obama’s vapid style, and even his 2008 language?

he even dipped from the "hope" well in this speech

“This is a moment in time when our country is crying out for fundamental change and reform.”

C’mon, Mitt! This is our moment … for change? And you’re the slam dunk frontrunner who’s going to lead the GOP to victory over Obama? We didn’t buy this rot from Obama even before we grew mind numbingly sick of listening to it!

Mitt salts the fields

If Mitt’s so darned electable (I’m not buying it), then why did he need to resort to this in Florida?

“[Mitt] had no reason to ask for folks to vote for him, and thus he did not invest much to do so.  The scorched earth of Florida will in no way, shape or form resemble any other state let alone the General Election.  The carpet bombing of Iowa and Florida would simply cost way too much money to duplicate nationally.” ~C. Edmund Wright, on American Thinker

Congratulations on your win last night in Florida, Mitt.  And please accept my November condolences in advance if we’re fool enough to pick you as our GOP nominee.

(Thanks also to C. Edmund Wright for the idea on the title to this post.)

Calm down, Ann

Ann Coulter is not happy about South Carolina last weekend.

“I am pretty sure we’ll get everyone who voted for McCain — since no one voted for McCain because we liked McCain — it was to stop Obama.” – Ann, surely you’re not arguing for 2008 as the GOP success model?  Many of us held our noses and voted for the next guy in line (made slightly more palatable because Palin was on the ticket), and that lack of enthusiastic support resulted directly in 4 solid years of wanton destruction of the country we love so dearly.  So no ma’am – you will not “get everyone” [emphasis mine] simply because you’re siding with the GOP machine that’s desperately trying to give us our marching orders.

“I think South Carolina is going back to its Democratic roots” – So Ann, supporters of Newt are now old-style Democrats?  Look, we’re not arguing that Newt is the purest of conservatives – that’s your strawman, not ours.  Are you arguing that Mitt is?  There are a lot of us out here not buying it.  You’re not giving equivalent scrutiny to the guy you’re supporting.

If Romney’s so rock solid, then what’s all this rush about?  Give conservative Americans in many states the chance to pick our guy.  We resent your ongoing scolding lecture.

We are not a football team

(hat tip Minus the Bear’s awesome tune for article title)

Will we allow propaganda hacks, the GOP establishment, Ann Coulter, and Karl Rove to prop up the next man in line, just because we’re too afraid to be aligned with the losing guy at the buzzer?  Remember, propaganda hacks will gleefully jump ship the instant all other GOP contenders are gone, no matter who the nominee is.  C’mon folks, we’re not lap dogs, and we’re talking about our country here, not your fantasy football league.

character destruction on parade

Look at that Real Clear Politics graph, and stop me when you’ve heard this tune before:

Bain is not the boogie man

Please, GOP and conservatives: attack Mitt Romney for his legitimate weaknesses, but let’s not arrange in a circular firing squad over capitalism and free markets!  Bain Capital is not the problem.  Class warfare is the problem.  Cronyism is the problem.  “Too big to fail” is the problem.  But honestly, do you believe that workers should never be fired, under any conditions? That when workers are fired, there’s some evil fat cat to blame?

not evil

If you believe any of these things, you’re in dire economic need of brushing up on your Henry Hazlitt.
