Do you ever get the feeling that Tea Party Republicans see the phrase “Ignorance Is Bliss” as a Mission Statement?


"Let Detroit Go Bankrupt" Jackpot for Mitt and Ann Romney!

Mitt Romney's Bailout Bonanza
See Those People....Those Are The 47%...EWE!

Mitt Romney’s opposition to the auto bailout has haunted him on the campaign trail, especially in Rust Belt states like Ohio. There, in September, the Obama campaign launched television ads blasting Romney’s November 2008 New York Times op-ed, “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt.” But Romney has done a good job of concealing, until now, the fact that he and his wife, Ann, personally gained at least $15.3 million from the bailout—and a few of Romney’s most important Wall Street donors made more than $4 billion. Their gains, and the Romneys’, were astronomical—more than 3,000 percent on their investment.

It all starts with Delphi Automotive, a former General Motors subsidiary whose auto parts remain essential to GM’s production lines. No bailout of GM—or Chrysler, for that matter—could have been successful without saving Delphi. So, in addition to making massive loans to automakers in 2009, the federal government sent, directly or indirectly, more than $12.9 billion to Delphi—and to the hedge funds that had gained control over it.


  1. How is this not exploding with investigations? I don't understand how the actions of Mitt, Ann, and their friends isn't f-ing treason. They extorted $3BB from tax payers during a national crisis from TARP. Is this what we've come to as a nation? This guy (and apparently Ann as well) are POS's. They are certainly not worthy of consideration for being POTUS. i'VE NEVER seen anything as unpatriotic and underhanded as what Mitt has done, yet he might still win. How is this possible?

  2. I know Tim! I feel the same way and I am livid about what the Romney's are able to get away with. Not just this but everything. They don't have to show their tax's which we now know they didn't pay for 15 yrs. He is able to lie with every breath he takes and main stream media lets him get away with it. I have NEVER in my life time seen an election or a candidate like this.
