GOP RE-BRANDING HELD UP BY TWO ANGRY WHITE MEN – Two Sore Losers: McCain & Romney Double Down on Stupid November 19
WAR ON REASON, FACTS & COMMON SENSE: Romney Joins McCain’s Weekend at Bernie’s
In the wake of President Obama’s victory in the Election of 2012 where the Democrats gained seats in the Senate and marginally closed the gap in the House, most earnest and semi-serious Republicans or at least those who hope to carve out a political future, seem to be moving on after accepting the results of the election. With the GOP in the midst of an intense re-branding effort, many Republicans are distancing themselves from Romney’s failed campaign and poisonous political rhetoric, two sore losers and otherwise angry white men seem to be doubling down on the stupid. Caught in a time warp are Mitt Romney and John ‘McNasty’ McCain, each of whom were defeated by the Democrat, Barack Obama in the last two Presidential elections.
THE 47% vs. 1% IRONY – Mitt Still in Denial
Mitt Romney, the man who demonized nearly half of Americans or the 47% of Americans who are ‘lazy, stoned, moochers’ who are ‘unwilling to take responsibility for themselves’ and thus were likely to vote for President Obama in the hopes of a handout, proved that in the recent 2012 Presidential election, he was truly only 1% better, gaining 48% (47.8% to be exact) of the vote nationally and got trounced in the battleground states and there might even be ‘divine justice’ as Romney’s final vote tally is likely to be 47%. Romney gave what some might consider a gracious concession speech on election night. But in a ‘Sneering Farewell to the ‘47 Percent’, he has since doubled down on caricaturization of the American electorate or at least that portion which gave the President his margin of victory. As reported in the Chicago Tribune:
“He did so in a conference call with donors saying President Obama won reelection essentially by bestowing “gifts” to minority voters, the young and women through his policies and campaign promises. Romney cited the extended benefits of the Affordable Care Act, free contraceptives and forgiveness of interest on college loans essentially as bribes that helped put Obama over the top.”
The ‘Great White Hope’ – the Romney Con ran a campaign calling for a restoration of the white ‘Anglo Saxon World’, tipping his cap to Lee Atwater and the GOP’s southern strategy. ‘Finally Liberated from Facts, Mitt Romney the Pure Bull Artist [took] flight’, hoping perhaps that those in battleground states and even a few blue states would accept that he was not a racist but instead a racial opportunist, who might be allowed to get away with this type of campaign with a wink and a nod because so many disliked to the black guy. He failed miserably. The CEO who portrayed himself as the more capable manager than the ‘community organizer’ relied on faulty data and Project Orca, a GOTV application that was a killer whale for his own campaign on election day when it was rendered inoperable. Perhaps the man who hoped to fulfill the Mormon’s white horse prophecy must accept that he may not become a god in the Mormon Church after all. Americans will not be wearing cartoon pins bearing his likeness for generations like he hoped when he put his face on the pins for the Salt Lake Olympic Games so that the self promoter could burnish a legacy as an Olympic savior.
INSANE MCCAIN – SENATOR PTSD ON WARPATH OVER BENGHAZI
Insane McCain, the landslide loser to Obama in 2008 still apparently has a chip on his shoulder. Senator PTSD, with all the legitimacy of a delusional angry white man is once again on the warpath making little sense to anyone but himself.
The serial opportunist channeling his inner crazy, which comes rather easily to McCain, thinks America needs to convene a Watergate styled panel to investigate the President and his administration over the attacks on our embassy in Libya that resulted in the death of the beloved and respected, Ambassador Christopher Stevens. In terms of ‘The GOP’s Absurd Attack on Susan Rice Over Benghazi’ actually Andrew Sullivan gets it right when he says that “McCain: [is] Still A Douche”.
The Real McCain is the old man who crashed planes into the sea and who graduated in the bottom 1% of his class at the Naval Academy and is the same one who would have put the ‘cuckoo for Coca Puffs’ – Sarah Palin a heartbeat from the Presidency. Yet this same man has the temerity to question the qualifications of Ambassador Susan E. Rice, the U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations and a member of President Obama’s Cabinet, referring to Susan Rice, a highly regarded diplomat, intellectual prodigy and think-tank scholar, as “not very bright”. Adding insult to injury, he then went further and concluded that Susan Rice is “not qualified” to be Secretary of State after Benghazi.
MCNASTY – MENTALLY & MORALLY INFERIOR TO UN AMBASSADOR SUSAN RICE
Ambassador Rice is being attacked for her role as the messenger delivering the chosen narrative, derived from preferred intelligence community talking points. Susan Rice was not ‘hiding’ anything but delivered what amounts to a preliminary message fit for public consumption by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence while Americans were still in harms way. Nevertheless, she took the high road delivering respectful and measured remarks in her defense to her critics. (as illustrated below)
Representative Marcia Fudge defended UN Ambassador Susan Rice from these nonsensical attacks by Senator McCain. Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) called out Republicans for their use of “code words” in attacking Rice’s professional capabilities. (See: Think Progress: “Top African American Lawmaker Says GOP Attacks On Susan Rice Use Racial ‘Code Words’”)
Furthermore, according to the Huffington Post that the ‘Republicans attack compromised (breached?) U.S. Security’ at a time when the intelligence community had reason to keep the details of what transpired in Benghazi murky. Yet even so, McCain stated that he now also ‘refuses to support any Secretary of State nominee’. It is clear to any rational observer that John McCain and Lindsey Graham who have not accepted the legitimacy of President Obama, are using Benghazi tragedy to foster the illusion of ‘the incompetence of the Obama administration’ as their best hopes to bring down and discredit the President.
MCCAIN’S QUESTIONABLE MENTAL CAPACITY
Has John McCain every looked in the mirror or even highlight reels of his own intellectual deficiencies? Regardless of what is behind ‘McCain’s Machinations’ whatever deference the war profiteer and Cindy McCain’s – ‘Sugar Baby’ may have previously earned in certain journalistic circles must finally be called into doubt by the mainstream media. You see, I am pretty sure that Susan Rice has a higher IQ than Mr. McCain and Palin combined. Examine their respective anemic academic pedigree’s relative to Susan Rice and I expect you will come to the same conclusion. ‘McCain’s theory on Benghazi is in the toilet’, where his career belongs at this stage. Even Republicans and military men [have issues with] John McCain; this guy is simply nuts.
McCain, Graham, Romney and others in the GOP are ignoring the simple reality that ‘Obama Won a Mandate’.
The truth be damned. McCain has resorted to slandering a female intellectual who had no meaningful role in what transpired in Benghazi. McCain continues in this regard even after the scapegoating of Rice has been ’soundly debunked.’ In the end, his heading down this path will come to be remembered as the moment where he truly jumped the shark as a credible and earnest human being. The man is so corrupt and confused that he does not even know who or what he is shilling for anymore but is walking around wondering who is going to reward him for his mishagas in attempting to tar and feather Susan Rice and the Obama administration with the tag of incompetence.
According to ABC News the President bristled at their threat to ‘Block Susan Rice Nomination Over Benghazi’.
OBAMA TAKES ON MCNASTY’S ROTTING CORPSE
“The Republican Party is a dead rotting carcass with a few decrepit old leaders stumbling around like zombies in a horror version of ‘Weekend With Bernie,’ handcuffed to a corpse.”
Now that rotting corpse resembling a U.S. Senator who has had four years to stew over his landslide defeat to President Barack Obama has become further flustered only to witness him get reelected. Angling for a scandal to tar and feather the President with, since we no longer lynch unacceptable black men in America, Insane McCain finally thinks he has found one and some members of his party who have still not learned any lessons may be tempted to go along with his looney crusade. The only problem is that the ‘Benghazi debacle’ is a clear case of over reaching. Mitt Romney tried to take the President out with that one and now he is pumping gas or sitting in his home in La Jolla, California or one of his four homes watching the President on one of his wide screen televisions hoping that McCain and Lindsey Graham (who has his own issues) can do what he and Paul Ryan could not do, take down a Democratic President.
Reasonable men no longer question John McCain’s manhood, values or character because it is by now clear to all that the fiction of of McCain’s legacy is a greater illusion than his testicular fortitude. The selling of the “Maverick John McCain” is a fiction perpetuated by his handlers and friends in the media. “WAR HEROES” do not run around telling anyone and everyone that they can find how how damn heroic that they are. Do they? Ever listen to Bruce Springsteen’s Song Glory Days? Heroes do not live to tell tall tales. Myths like McCain do. Heroes die. Liars never tell you how they graduated 5th from the bottom of their class at the Naval Academy, how their legacy admission is the only reason they were not expelled or that they were never promoted to Admiral because McCain was of such low intellect, had little if any intellectual curiosity about flight plan preparation, spent more of his time behind a bar stool and chasing skirts than actually studying, crashed numerous military aircraft and was hardly viewed by anyone at the Naval Academy as a serious Naval Aviator. He was perhaps more enamored with the title “Naval Aviator” then he was in actually becoming a marginally proficient pilot and he was known to have spent most of his time at the Naval Academy in a drunken stupor. One might reasonably conclude that John McCain was a terrible pilot who crashed and destroyed many planes and probably should not have been given his assignment in Vietnam where he was shot down, briefly tortured and then sung like a canary for the Viet Cong. Ask Ross Perot and what he will tell you is that McCain is a soul less man, ‘a classic opportunist’ who gravitates towards the limelight and rests his laurels on—being shot down and tortured. Now if you want to ask whose incompetence resulted in more military deaths, you need only look at John McCain. If only he spent more of his time at the Naval Academy studying, learning how to fly a plane or giving up his legacy seat for someone more qualified and dedicated, maybe a few more lives could have been spared.
MCCAIN’S ETHICS REVEALED: The Keating Five Scandal & Financial Opportunism over Loyalty, Honor & Country
The Keating Five Scandal stained John McCain as the political Madoff of his generation of Senators. His days of corruption and of influence peddling made him ‘the most reprehensible of the Keating Five’ and probably should have ended his political career.
If the media in this country were truly honest, they would acknowledge that even Michael Tomasky’s recent criticism in the Daily Beast on ‘How John McCain Humiliated Himself on Susan Rice’ is even too deferential to this man and the true import of his legacy. McCain’s legend is as much a myth as is the idea that this man has ever represented reasoned, thoughtful and intelligent leadership. As Tomasky states therein:
We don’t yet really know as a society what a person has to do to completely and utterly cancel out a record of war heroism, but we may be about to find out. If this CBS News report is even close to accurate, John McCain’s arguments of the last few weeks about Susan Rice are thrashingly demolished. He has, or should have, zero credibility now on this issue. It will be fascinating to see if he emerges from the holiday weekend subtly chastened, attempting to shift gears a bit, or whether he keeps the pedal to the paranoid metal. He’s getting toward the sunset of what was once a reasonably distinguished career, a career (if we count his time in Vietnam) that began in the highest honor and has now descended into the darkest farce.
McCain’s life story is that of a political myth – a ‘war hero’ who was shot down because the legacy admission did not learn how to properly fly a plane at the military academy because he spent most of his time behind a bar stool and skirt chasing. This is a man with questionable ethics, morality and loyalty who has made a career of prostituting himself; he callously dumped his wife upon return from Vietnam when he saw that she too was now also partially disabled, for Sugar Momma Cindy McCain. Yet this moron now thinks Benghazi is that scandal that can do to Obama what the Impeachment hearings did to Clinton or maybe what the Keating Five Scandal did to undermine his own falsified legacy, ethics and character. McCain could not be any more wrong. He should find a retirement home already and get some Obamacare for his PTSD.
