Romney to Debate Coach “Your Fired”

speaking at CPAC in Washington D.C. on Februar...Image via Wikipedia
Just days after receiving an endorsement from Donald Trump, Presidential GOP hopeful Mitt Romney borrowed Mr. Trump’s well Known phrase “Your Fired”  and canned his then new debate coach,  Brett O’Donnell.

Mr. Romney has already informed the electorate that he likes to be able to fire people who provide poor service, apparently he also likes to fire those who provide excellent service. Mr. Romney’s debate performances prior to the hiring of Mr. O’Donnell were, to put it politely, bloody awful. However, prior to the two Florida debates Mr. Romney’s campaign hired Mr. O’Donnell, and Mr. Romney actually won both those debates handily. So how does Mr. O’Donnell get rewarded? With two words “Your Fired”. Why? Not for poor performance but , according to the Romney campaign, because he was taking to much credit for Romney’s success in those two debates.

The Hoss is of the opinion that Mr. Romney, being the vulture capitalist that he is, just likes to be able to fire people as he previously has stated.

Let's take a look at his record while working with Bain Capital. He loved to go in to struggling companies, have them take on lots of debt, eliminate the employees’ pension plans, close the business down, have the companies file for bankruptcy protection, pay Bain millions of dollars for their services, take a huge salary for himself.Not unlike what Bain Capital is currently doing to American Airlines. Check this article about  Georgetown Steel.

Mr. Romney is also known to hide money off shore,  give millions of dollars to his sons and use a tax loop hole in order to pay a minimum tax. If elected President Mr. Romney has not offered to close the tax loop holes that benefit only the rich.

Mr. Romney's slogan is Believe in America. If he believes in America why is he stashing money offshore and not in America? Why did he, while with Bain Capital ruin numerous companies and close down factories instead of rebuilding as President Obama rebuilt the auto industry? Can you imagine how many autoworkers and related industry workers would be unemployed if America would have listened to Mr. Romney and closed down Detroit.

Republican Primary Race Candidates Resemble Batman Characters.

The Batman (TV series)Image via Wikipedia
Having watched many (too Many) Republican debates The Hoss has noticed that the candidates resemble some of the characters in the comic book series Batman.  Seriously, the Republican field of candidates have many of the traits of the villains trying to eliminate Batman.

First the main character is of course Batman (Democrat), who we all know is President Obama. What does Batman do? He is fighting for the rights of all the people, not just the rich.

Next we have the list of villains (Republicans) trying to bring him down.

EVERYWHERE MAN: Mitt Romney, he has taken every position on every issue.

PENQUIN:  You know this one; just watch him waddle on to the stage, Newt Gingrich. The only thing missing is the umbrella.

D.A.V.E. : Which stands for the Digitally Advanced Villain Emulator who is programmed with the personalities of several of the Batman’s adversaries, I give you Rick Santorum.

MISTER FREEZE: Why Ron Paul of course, he wants to freeze everything.

JOKER:  Yes you guessed it, none other than Stephen Colbert.

CAT WOMAN: Michelle Bachman. Halle Berry was unavailable.

RIDDLER: 9-9-9 need I say more? Herman Cain.

INVISIBLE MEN: Tim Pawlenty and John Huntsman. ( Ok, The Hoss cheated on this one, the invisible man was not a Batman character.)

Cantor: I will not “compromise” my principles.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, in an attempt to dispel his reputation as an obstructionist and the person responsible for Congress having a 91% disapproval rating, invited Lesley Stahl of CBS to meet his family and conduct an interview which aired on the CBS program 60 Minutes.

Cantor’s inflexibility was evident throughout the interview and observers could well understand why there is gridlock in Washington. This should surprise no one, as it was Cantor who recruited most of the Tea Party freshman class, currently dictating the Republican Party's policies in Congress.

Despite being asked several times if he would compromise, as his hero Ronald Regan did, he stated and I quote “Well, I would say cooperate is let's look to where we can move things forward where we agree. Comprising principles, you don't want to ask anybody to do that. That's who they are as their core being.”

I will make it simple for those of you that don’t understand this statement, My way or the Highway.

His lovely wife Diana is pro choice and he is pro life. I wonder what would happen if Mrs. Cantor or his lovely daughter or both were raped and became pregnant. During the pregnancy, complications arise that would result in the death of his wife (daughter) unless an abortion was immediately performed. Would he cooperate and move things forward or would he compromise and agree with an abortion. Just asking how deep his core really is.

Diana is also not anti gay he is. So what will happen if a child of Eric Cantor is gay and wants to marry a person of the same sex, will he stay with his core beliefs and expel that child from the family? Just asking.

Cantor’s attempt to humanize himself was a complete and utter failure. He is what he is and what he is an obstructionist who insists everything be done his way, as Cantor’s way is the only way. He will not “compromise” his principles.
