 Mitt Romney tries to price gouge the reporters for the “privilege” of covering his campaign.  The charges seem extremely unreasonable.

"Look Who’s Still Talking" John Stewart on Mitt Romney’s condescending and belittling comments about voters

So Mitt Romney’s been out saying incredibly offensive things about Democratic voters.

I still think Chrysler/GM should sue Mitt Romney for libel as his lies sullied their business reputation and caused real problems and distress for their work force.  After all he took out all those ads attacking them for doing things they weren’t doing, things he knew absolutely weren’t true and continue to run ads attacking Jeep after Chrysler/GM issued denials.

I’m not sure I can repeat this enough: The Mitt Romney Campaign wants its supports to literally steal candy from babies.

Just saying, WTF!!!  It’s like Mr. Burns from the Simpsons is running for President.

Seeing as how the President is too busy handling a National crisis and actually helping people to campaign, Mitt Romney decided to take advantage of that by attacking the President hard at campaign events.  This included his campaign surrogate ordering supporters to steal Halloween candy from the children of Obama supporters.  Yes, Mitt Romney thinks the best thing to do during a national crisis is to do photo ops of Mitt Romney pretending to help and stealing candy from children.  If this isn’t symbolic of what a Mitt Romney Presidency would be like, I don’t know what the fuck is.  It’s like him saying, “Elect me and I will pretend to care while stealing the future from your children.”  Anyway, here’s the clip.

Mitt Romney decides to do the opposite of helping because a photo op of pretending to help disaster victims is more valuable than actually helping to his campaign.  After all, looking like you give a shit about other people is way better than actually giving a shit about them.

I don’t know what  we’d do without her.

New York City all by itself has a population larger than that of Vermont.  Add in all the folks in Hoboken, Newark, and all the other affected areas. The subways within New York are likely going to be out for weeks, causing huge issues for working class people who must spend hours hiking to work.  They are having to evacuate several damaged hospitals either entirely or in part.  Bellevue is essentially useless.  They are still rescuing or provisioning stranded people in places like Hoboken where it’s not safe to leave because of electrified flood waters and plucking them out of stranded vehicles.  The loss of life is sad, but this could have been so much worse without Federal coordination and Johnny on the spot rescue and evacuation coordination and of course the National Guard and Army Corps of Engineers.  They are sending utility vehicles and technicians from all over New England.  Mitt Romney still hasn’t retracted his claims that we should replace all this large scale efficient organization and well trained disaster responders with private businesses which would magically decide to give their resources for free in emergencies, although he is now pretending he hasn’t been in favour of entirely getting rid of FEMA.  Right.  Oh, he also claims he knows what it’s like to clean up after a hurricane because one time they made him help clean a football feild after a game, because that’s totally the same.  Riiiiiight.  They are still working out who is dead or just missing, so I can’t tell you the exact death toll.

While Mitt Romney was holding his fake hurricane help campaign event/photo op, his surrogate John McCain was out attacking the President on Libya.  After all, it’s not like the president was helping to coordinate a massive evacuation and Rescue operation in light of a major disaster, right?  Except he was.  This doesn’t look like “suspending the campaign to me.
