States Diverting Mortgage Settlement Money to Other Uses -

I was thinking along the same lines this morning when heard Romney complaining about the expenditures for the economic recovery..."the biggest, most careless one-time expenditure by the federal government in history.  And remember this: the stimulus wasn’t just wasted – it was borrowed and wasted." Of course it wasn't wasted; the states spent all of it and in some cases, the general public even received some of it. Romney has a problem with that? Then, why isn't he lambasting the states that 'wasted' the money? No, lies play better on television. 
And then there is this story about Romney..."In his 2010 book, No Apology, Romney argued that following the $152 billion stimulus package signed by President Bush in the summer of 2008, "a second stimulus was called for. Under Obama that's obviously what we got. And you know what Romney thought about that stimulus package? It wasn't too bad. Although Romney would have preferred that a second stimulus be passed under Bush, who "understood much more than [Democrats] the crucial role played by tax cuts," the former Massachusetts governor wrote in his book that "the 'all-Democrat' stimulus that was passed in early 2009 will accelerate the timing of the start of the recovery"—just "not as much as it could have" if the stimulus plan was designed the way that Romney would have preferred."
You see, Romney lies all of the time...probably in his sleep as well.
If this man makes it to the White House you will see some of the darkest days that this nation has seen. I'll stick by that statement because I have 'evolved' regarding my opinion of Romney. A few years ago I would have said that he would make a decent Republican candidate. I thought he was an honorable man. Then I began to watch him and to read about him. Now I know...and a vote for him is a vote corporate America.

  1. Amen! I agree with you on both points, my perception of him in 2007/2008 and my perception of him now. He has not changed, just our understanding of his corruptness, I think. We know more about him now.

    He scares me.

  2. He is not off to a good start as we now know about his bullying and his homophobia. I'm sure that there is plenty more to find before this fall. His staff is already trying to keep him out of the 'rope lines' because they know he can't be trusted to say the politic words needed when confronted by reporters.
