Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Strange Ofays edition

Good morning, gentle people!

This whole Romney / Freeperati thing has taken a bizarre turn – they hate him so much that they’ve all turned into DFHs.

Think I’m kidding?

Prepare yourselves for –I can haz war, plz?

Mitt Romney Says He Could Wage War on Iran Without Congress’ Approval
The Alatnic ^ | June 20th, 2012 | Conor Friedersdorf

Posted on Wednesday, June 20, 2012 8:59:50 PM byMozilla

On Face the Nation on Sunday, Mitt Romney said that if elected president he wouldn’t have to get congressional permission for a military strike on Iran.

To quote him directly (emphasis added):

I can assure you if I’m president, the Iranians will have no question but that I will be willing to take military action if necessary to prevent them from becoming a nuclear threat to the world. I don’t believe at this stage, therefore, if I’m president that we need to have a war powers approval or special authorization for military force. The president has that capacity now. I understand that some in the Senate for instance have written letters to the president indicating you should know that a containment strategy is unacceptable. We cannot survive a course of action which would include a nuclear Iran we must be willing to take any and all actions.

All those actions must be on the table.

So it’s OK to intend to start another war in the Middle East, as long as you lie about it to get elected?

To: Mozilla
Well, we all know that arguing with idiots doesn’t work on the basis of our experiences with our neighbors and co-workers.

Having said that; if we start up another war in the Middle East, we may very well run out of soldiers and armament.

I say let those people over there argue over whose god is the real god and which zombies and prophets are right about the universe until they wipe each other out.

I personally would not care if the entire Middle East was reduced to a sea of glass with no inhabitants.

Oh great. Now we have our own candidate to be king.

Now some folks can run him on the ‘My king is better than your king” platform.

Armour and chain mail will be handed out at the jousting tournaments this fall.

Maybe we could cooperate with the other side to make sure their two armors are oppositely charged. The first time they make a pass, they’ll merge into one big glob of king juice and we can start over.

It was wrong when Obama did it in Libya, and it’ll be just as wrong if Romney does it in Iran.

Apples and oranges, my friend.

Libya was an internal matter and we should have stayed out. Iran wants to wipe another country off the map.

That was Iraq – and we did that for them. And not even a thank-you card in return!

That, cannot be allowed.

Sorry, but I don’t buy that we have to go involving ourselves in every hot spot the world over.

Somebody please tell Romney that we don’t even have enough money left to operate that pirate ship in the Pirate’s of the Caribbean ride at Disney, much less launch yet another war in the Middle East.

In all the “UN-declared” wars we have lost approximately 120,000 lives with close to 330,000 wounded.

For what? A draw, a loss, and the verdict is still out on the latest two – OIF and OEF.

And here we have yet another Neo-con boasting how he will bypass Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution once again.

Words simply escape me – that can be posted under Jim’s guide lines anyway!

GOP Sen. Rubio says deportation leniency is ‘welcome news’
The Hill ^ | 06/15/12 01:07 PM ET; updated: 2:00 pm | Mike Lillis

Posted on Friday, June 15, 2012 3:23:30 PM byRed Steel

A GOP senator on the short list to be Mitt Romney’s running mate is applauding President Obama’s move to forego deportations for some illegal immigrants.


Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said the more lenient policy is “welcome news” for those immigrants who will benefit, though he was quick to knock the administration for acting unilaterally.

“Today’s announcement will be welcome news for many of these kids desperate for an answer, but it is a short term answer to a long term problem,” the Cuban-American Rubio said in a statement. “And by once again ignoring the Constitution and going around Congress, this short term policy will make it harder to find a balanced and responsible long term one.”

Rubio’s comments are a stark contrast to those coming from other Republicans, who are blasting the new rules as a threat to U.S. jobs and – in the words of Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) – “possibly illegal.”

Rubio’s remarks also further complicate the position of GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, who took a hard conservative line against illegal immigrants amid the heat of the GOP primary but is now searching for ways to soften that stance to appeal to Hispanic voters, who will be vital in a number of swing states in November.

Neither Romney nor GOP leaders on Capitol Hill – including House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) – have weighed in on the new policy.

It’s not the first time Rubio has bucked his party on immigration. Earlier in the year, the freshman Republican vowed he’ll be introducing a version of the Dream Act – which would offer legal resident status for certain illegal immigrant students and military personnel – and urged GOP leaders, including Romney, to get onboard.

“There is broad support for the idea that we should figure out a way to help kids who are undocumented through no fault of their own, but there is also broad consensus that it should be done in a way that does not encourage illegal immigration in the future,” Rubio said Friday. “This is a difficult balance to strike, one that this new policy, imposed by executive order, will make harder to achieve in the long run.”

Rubio has yet to introduce his Dream Act bill.


“The president’s actions were necessary due to the gridlock which has sadly become a normal condition for Congress,” Rep. Charlie Gonzales (D-Texas), chairman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, said in a statement. “[But] a legislative remedy is still needed.”

Obama last September said he’s not able to halt deportations unilaterally by executive order.

“With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case,” he said during an interview with Univision.

Friday’s policy change was made through the DHS, however, not by executive order.

The change takes effect immediately.

The D’s took the immigration discussion away from Mitt today. There is no way for him to cozy up to Latinos now.

In other news, there is no way for the KKK to cozy up to black people now.

Unless Rubio throws himself under the bus for Mitt. (that’s my political sense, anywho).

I remember how many of us herefoughtpissed and moaned impotently about
the Dream ACT every time they tried to pass it. Now Obama basically passes the Dream act by decree. This is crushing. This Dream act is Amnesty and Obama just unlawfully gave Amnesty to illegals. We and the Republicans in Congress defeated this Dream act several times.All for nothing. what is this country coming to?
It’s senses?

And Romney just said the same thing.

“And I happen to agree with Marco Rubio as he will consider this issue. He said this is an important matter. If I’m president, we’ll do our very best to have that kind of long-term solution that provides certainty and clarity for the people who come into this country through no fault of their own by virtue of an act of their parents. Thank you.” – Mitt Romney 6/15/2012

Just like that, they let Obama pull them FAR to the left on this issue. Happy, GOP?

Florida nabs white supremacists planning “race war.”

Ten alleged members of a white supremacist group training near Orlando and Disney World for a “race war” have been rounded up in a series of arrests in central Florida, authorities said on Tuesday.

The arrests were based on evidence from a confidential informant who infiltrated the neo-Nazi organization known as the American Front 17 months ago, according to an arrest affidavit.

“The American Front (AF) is a military-styled, anti-Semitic, white supremacist, skinhead organization and is known as a domestic terrorist organization,” the affidavit said.

Please read the full article.This looks like Nifong job.

…because the military-styled, anti-Semitic, white supremacist, skinheads were all playing Lacrosse when they were raped by the arresting officers.
I hate it when that happens.


I noticed that/s;) Why has no one been successful at infiltrating the NBPP?

How do you know they haven’t?

And the so-called New Black Panther Party is too busy posing for publicity pics to actually do anything, much less start a race war.

And if J Edgar Hoover were still with us, you can BET he would have gotten the goods on Jackson and Sharpie.


Also, if you remember, the prison gang investigation busted only the prison skinheads, not the black or Hispanic gangs…

Bully story a black eye for Mitt Romney

Bully story a black eye for Mitt Romney

“Straight-laced and squeaky clean Mitt Romney
must show he’s not the teen bully critics now say he was,
if he hopes to limit the damage from a published report
on his prep school days that paints him
as a cruel and possibly homophobic prankster
who once pinned a vulnerable schoolmate down
and cut his bleached-blond locks…

Republican consultant John Feehery called
the Washington Post report “troubling”
for Romney’s presidential bid…

“For independents, it’s a troubling story.
… They don’t like bullies, and anti-bullying has
become a issue on the national stage,”

“In the context of a close election,
little things like this can matter,”

Romney, in a hastily arranged radio interview yesterday,
… said he did not remember the alleged Lauber incident.
“I participated in a lot of hijinks and pranks
during high school and some may have gone too far…”
Romney told Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade…

Some of Romney’s prep-school pals
said they were stunned by the Post report.”
I’ll bet you were all wondering how this issue played in Freeperville?

Amazing, isn’t it? The Washington Post has to go back to high school to find dirt on Romney(he bullied a gay kid. Boo hoo…) but they can’t bother even to look for a former girlfriend of Obama’s so they make up a “composite” one. LOL!

To: Freddd
I listened to NPR this morning. They are not retracting. In fact, they are bringing up that multiple classmates are confirming the story and Romney is clearly not denying it, and even saying he admits he did “stupid” things in High School (don’t we all).

His Richy Rich perception is increased with this one.

I’m really glad that this came out before the nomination process completed.

To be clear, what he did in HS is not a concern (short of selling drugs). But I believe it will be with a lot of voters.Many will see him as Biff Tannon.

  1. It will be interesting to watch them fall in line, as we know they must.

  2. Scott S. says:

    On the “Romney War on Iran” story, didn’t any of them mention Iraq? Have they literally flushed that one down the memory hole so they don’t even remember it happening anymore?

  3. MapleStreet says:

    Southern – maybe I should start an office pool on what date the Freepers will cave. Their owner sure caved fast enough on only allowing comments on demanding support for one particular candidate.
    Also, the “Training Video” made me wonder how come the NRA isn’t protesting NYC stop-and-frisk.
    Comments on bullying consistent with image of the right as having a lot of people who bully their position?
    Wondering what war with Iran would do to gas prices, national debt and world economy. Hopefully at least one freeper commented on that.
    Thanks Tommy.

  4. MapleStreet says:

    Also wondering – are the freepers gonna consider, RE: Rubio comments, that many Cuban Americans have a significant dislike of/prejudice towards the Mexican-Americans?

  5. Dee Loralei says:

    Thanks Tommy T!

  6. Kibitzer 2006 says:

    Are we into 17-dimensional chess yet? Romney is so flummoxed over the mini-DREAM, SCOTUS striking down most of SB 1070, gas prices plummeting, and a host of other things that he is once again reduced to driving his bus around Obama events and honking. Pathetic. I can’t wait for the debates.

  7. Tommy T says:

    I told you guys it was really getting weird over there.
    They really DO hate Rmoney – the “Kumbayah” thread is an example of how they’re even willing to embrace reality (formerly called liberal) talking points (i.e.
    “How the fuck are we gonna pay for another war?”).
    If Rmoney suddenly embraced the idea of giving out free guns to the populace, you would hear what a bad idea this was from the ranks of the Freeperati, with much discussion on the fact that Rmoney wants their children to be killed in accidental shootings, which would go up.
