Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Unpleasant Suprises edition
I was sitting here Friday afternoon when the funniest thing happened – the capstone for this week’s post just fell into my lap,
I was looking at my Facebook feed and saw something funny – something that the Freeperati turned out to be connected with – so I kinda backed into this one, starting with teh funneh and ending up at Freeperville, where this was on display – someGaster-nomics!

President Obama’s message to entrepreneurs that “you didn’t build that” prompted one Georgia business owner to respond with a not-so-subtle retort.
“I built this business without gov’t help. Obama can Kiss my ass,” reads the sign outside Gaster Lumber & Hardware in Savannah, Ga. Owner Ray Gaster posted that and two similar ones at all three of his company’s locations in response to Obama’s comments during a speech to supporters in Virignia, which struck a nerve with small business owners around the nation.
Ray Gaster poses in front of one of his “you didn’t build that” response signs.

Now, the tactics. It is clear that Rice, despite protestations to the contrary, has political aspirations. She is on the lecture circuit and spoke at my alma mater—Claremont McKenna’s Res Publica Society. This is the same program that brought Secretary of Defense Bob Gates, Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff, and Mitt Romney. There was a meeting beforehand with top fundraisers at Claremont. Rice has also written two books post-Bush office, but unlike others, notably Rumsfeld and Cheney, the books reveal precious little, indicative that she is not yet finished in the public eye. They discuss her historic life as the child of segregated Birmingham, Alabama. It is historic and it is impressive.
It is the real black American experience, not the contrived, composite experience of Barack Obama.
Naming Rice protects Romney from the race question, which will surely be raised because of his Mormonism. It reminds people of his family’s commitment to civil rights (something he has long shared), and it allows him to speak to women. Besides, like with Healey, Romney doesn’t have to worry about being overshadowed by Rice.
It is not surprising in the least that Ann Romney endorsed Mia Love, the black Mormon candidate running for Congress in Utah, in late June. This is the only candidate that Ann Romney has endorsed. Why? It is simply likely that they have race on the mind.
In the same way, Ann’s statement about how the vice president is likely to be a woman shows a desire to appeal to female voters. There are no accidents in this campaign, and that trial balloon was certainly something that they had in mind.
One man’s opinion …

Because she did such an excellent job secretly agreeing to cooperate with Spain in taking Odyssey Marine’s find from it and giving it to Spain, in exchange for some stolen WWII loot that the United States government would then get to keep?(According to Wikileaks.)

Blacks no longer have the political influence they once had,

and most blacks would not change their vote to Republican anyway.
If Romney is interested in getting people to change their vote, he’d get a bigger bang for the buck by asking Susana Martinez to be his running mate.
’cause she’s a Messican.

Lest you think all the Freeperati who were singing her praises when she was Dubya’s Dominatrix(note to self – copyright that phrase before the pron industry gets it) have come down with GOPzheimer’s disease:
People on this site used to be passionate about Condoleeza Rice (in a good way) as this2002 Free Republic thread clearly shows.
What has changed? People here charge that she voted for Obama but I can’t find proof of that anywhere. People also say she’s pro-abortion and I can’t find that anywhere either. Realize that I’m defining “pro-abortion” as somebody who advocates for and encourages the practice.

What has changed? There’s a black persongiving the orders now instead oftaking them, and you know how they all stick together, Guilt by association.
I guess she succumbed to tribalism, which many of us do not feel. I work with a Jewish guy (and am in a carpool with him). He’s conservative, but he would vote for Joe Lieberman in a heartbeat. I’ve tried to explain that Lieberman is a total lib and was only moderately conservative in supporting the WOT. In all else, he’s a total lib. This guy was excited that McCain might pick Lieberman as his VP in 2008 (i would not have voted for McCain if he had). Never underestimate the power of tribalism in people who see themselves as traditionally downtrodden.

OK – what else is waiting in the drum of Umpleasant Surprises?
Mitt Romney’s tax returns had nothing to do with Sen. John McCain’s decision to choose Sarah Palin as his running mate in 2008, according to the Arizona Republican, saying he chose the former Alaska governor because she was a “better candidate.”
McCain received more than two decades worth of Romney’s tax returns as the former Massachusetts governor was undergoing the vetting process four years ago, far more than Romney has released publicly in the 2012 campaign. Democrats have questioned whether McCain saw something untoward in those tax returns and decided to choose Palin instead.
But on Tuesday, McCain flatly rejected that assertion and grew angry at questions over his decision to choose Palin over Romney.
Asked why he chose not to go with Romney, McCain said: “Oh come on, because we thought that Sarah Palin was the better candidate. Why did we not take [Tim] Pawlenty, why did we not take any of the other 10 other people. Why didn’t I? Because we had a better candidate, the same way with all the others. … Come on, why? That’s a stupid question.”
Sorry, Sen McCain, in all fairness Sarah Palin was not prepared for a national candidacy in 2008. In 2012 she is showing much better grasp of national issues and Romney would be smart to pick her on the ticket.
There would be none of the fumbling when asked about the Bush doctrine, anymore. She is now fit and ready to be very effective against Obama-Biden.

Shut up Mccain.
Just shut up.
And go dig your fat daughter out of the mud and herd her back to the hog house.
And, by the way, thanks for purposefully throwing the election. You own much of what ails America today.
McCain knew from the start that he was just a stalking horse for the “Progressives” and was not meant to actually win. IMHO he chose Palin ‘cause she had nice legs and a great rack and would be better to look at during the campaign than the Mittens. /sarc She surprised him and the whole RNC and scared them so much that they thought they might win. Not knowing what to do then they figured out a way to blow the election by shooting their own candidate in the foot at every opportunity.

Iwondered what happened in 2008. Thanks for clearing that up. The Republicans would have won if it hadn’t been for that inspired False Flag Operation.

To quote Doghouse Reilly:
“Since the wildly successful two terms of the Affable Dim Bulb President in the 1980s, Republicans have nominated clueless Patricians five times, and Senatorial War Heroes Safely In The Pocket Of Big Money twice. The war heroes lost. The idiots won.”
Too late to make up for all the damage you intentionally inflicted upon your own running mate, earlier… “Maverick.”

Gov. Palin was chosen to WIN, but was backstabbed by Team Romney.

Dick Cheney has some advice for Mitt Romney on choosing a running mate: Don’t pick another Sarah Palin.
In his first interview since receiving a heart transplant in March, Cheney told ABC News, that John McCain’s decision to pick Palin as his running mate in 2008 was “a mistake” – one that it is important from Romney not to repeat.
It’s subject on which Cheney has some unique experience. He helped Presidents Gerald Ford and George W. Bush lead their vice presidential searches and, of course, served as vice president for eight years. He’s also privately offered some advice to both Romney and Beth Myers, who is leading Romney’s search for a runningmate, on the process.
Cheney would not comment on what he told Romney and Myers, but he was harsh in his assessment of McCain’s decision to pick Palin.
“That one,” Cheney said, “I don’t think was well handled.”
“The test to get on that small list has to be, ‘Is this person capable of being president of the United States?'”
Cheney believes Sarah Palin failed that test.
“I like Governor Palin. I’ve met her. I know her. She – attractive candidate. But based on her background, she’d only been governor for, what, two years. I don’t think she passed that test…of being ready to take over. And I think that was a mistake.”
And George W. Bush doesn’t bear any blame for the state of the GOP in the 2006 and 2008 elections after eight years in office?

No purpose is served by such whining from Cheney.
Did he have anything to say about how the Republican party went from one of its strongest postions ever after the election to 2004, to one of its weakest positions ever after the election of 2008 – after eight years of Bush and Cheney and Rove, etc.?
27 posted on Sunday, July 29, 2012 9:52:07 AM byWill88
And if McCain hadn’t picked Sarah he would have gone down to an even more humiliating defeat. The only reason he got as many votes as he did was because of Palin.
I agree; but that says more about McCain’s weakness that Palin’s strength.
The Cult of Palin cannot understand that a national ticket must have broad appeal. Palin excited the hard right – but, she amused or scared the mushy middle. And the mushy middle is who decides elections.
