Just When You Think Mitt Romney Couldn’t Possibly Be Any More Immoral or Any More Fake…

So not only did we have the borderline act of criminal trespass committed by Paul Ryan when he and his entourage barged into a soup kitchen to pretend to care about people – and in the process cleaning some pots and pans that were already clean – for a fraudulent photo op, but now we find out not only that Mitt the Flip’s fraudulent ‘relief effort’ yesterday diverted legitimate Red Cross resources away from New Jersey, et. al., but also that the entire spectacle was fake:

[T]he night before the event, campaign aides went to a local Wal Mart and spent $5,000 on granola bars, canned food, and diapers to put on display while they waited for donations to come in, according to one staffer. (The campaign confirmed that it “did donate supplies to the relief effort,” but would not specify how much it spent.)

Oh, but it gets better:

Memo to the Con Artists Who Produce the ‘Romney is Bipartisan’ Ads: The Word “Bipartisan” Consists of Two Parts – “Partisan” and…

Well, just compare the McConnell-Boner congressional chunk of concrete – you know, the one whose publicly stated purpose in being in Congress for the last four years was not all of the stuff that they swear an oath to do but, instead, sabotage a sitting president – to the usually obnoxious Chris Christie.

Emphasis on usually.

As Romney roams the Midwest and Florida struggling to stay relevant, miming coordinating storm response with G.O.P. governors and collecting canned goods to send East, his fair-weather pal Christie failed to give Mittens any disaster relief.

On ABC, CBS and NBC, Christie hailed Obama as “outstanding.” On MSNBC, he said the president “has been all over this,” and on CNN, he called Obama “incredibly supportive.” The big guy even tweeted his thanks to the slender one.

Most astonishing of all, the New Jersey governor went on Fox News and spoke words rarely heard on that network: “I have to give the president great credit.”

“I spoke to the president three times yesterday,” Christie gushed. “He called me for the last time at midnight last night, asking what he could do.”

Christie also extolled FEMA, even though Romney has said it is “immoral” to spend money on federal disaster relief when the deficit is so big.

While Romney campaigns in Florida Wednesday, Christie and Obama plan to tour storm damage in New Jersey, a picture of bipartisanship, putting distressed people above dirt-slinging politics.

And that’s a grand bargain for both of them.

We can only hope that Rmoney is unwittingly gearing up to become this century’s Horace Greeley.

Go west (or whatever) to Kolob, old man….

Also Not From The Onion (Really)

Low-pressure weather; high-intensity, doubled-down douchebaggery.

The mayor’s office is currently being flooded with offers from would-be volunteers who want to assist in the recovery effort.

Obviously, Donald Trump is upset about this. Because it’s taking attention away from Donald Trump.

More significantly, though, for Trump, Sandy is problematic because clearly it’s just one big sympathy ploy from Obama. “Hurricane is good luck for Obama again – he will buy the election by handing out billions of dollars. Not only giving out money, but Obama will be seen today standing in water and rain like he is a real president —don’t fall for it.” Yes, neonatal care babies being evacuated in the midst of a storm — what a windfall for the president.

Maybe not.

Bush’s FEMA Director During Katrina Criticizes Obama For Responding To Sandy Too Quickly (And No, This Story Is NOT From The Onion)

That sound you hear is Lewis Black preparing material for a new album:

Former FEMA Director Michael Brown offered criticism of President Obama’s early responses to Hurricane Sandy yesterday, including a dig at the administration’s response to last month’s attack in Libya.

Yesterday, ahead of the storm’s pummeling of the eastern seaboard, Brown gave an interview to the local alternative paper, the Denver Westword, on how he believed the Obama administration was responding to Sandy too quickly and that Obama had spoken to the press about Sandy’s potential effect too early.

Brown turned then to a reliable right-wing attack on the President’s response to the attack on a U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi that killed four Americans….

Wow…

just, wow……

I will admit that when I saw this story pop up on a Facebook feed, I just presumed that it was from the Onion.

That’s what I get for underestimating the douchebaggery of BushCo.

I shant make that mistake again.

Well….

One of them has LSD as an excuse.
