Daily Scoop: Romney’s “Free Government Money 101″ [video]

In what could become Mitt Romney’s J.D. Hayworth moment this ABC News video utterly contradicts the Republican presidential candidates calls to severely cut government spending. As with J.D. Hayworth – John McCain’s Tea Party challenger in 2010 who was caught in “Free Government Money” informercial which contributed to his election loss - this video may be the metaphorical topper to the ex-governor’s campaign of flip-flopping. Depending on the coverage it receives, Mitt may have essentially shot himself in the foot.

Feel free to reblog, retweet and spread this video around the web to any of those who may still be on the fence during this important election.

Students to Candidates “What have you done for me lately?”

Younger voters may pass on this years presidential elections. “It’s almost like if someone were voting in this election, it’d be like the lesser of two evils.” was the sentiment given by one Bowling Green University student in the swing state of Ohio. A new study found many of the under-30 crowd are not particularly interested in the sparing contest between President Obama and his challenger, Mitt Romney.

Despite young voters, those under 30 are more likely to vote Democrat, larger numbers of them are experiencing a lack in enthusiasm due in part to candidates’ inability to locate that common ground with college students.

Mashed Potato Bulletin turns 1 year old

One year ago this week, yesterday actually, the Mashed Potato Bulletin took its first breath with  a posting initially intended for the New York Times Op-ed pages. But due to length restrictions and perhaps a bit too ambitious for a first attempt at political writing that first article inspired a pursuit for an alternate venue. After much soul searching, more than a few scrapped blog names and one off the wall suggestion, the Mashed Potato Bulletin was born.

Daily Scoop: Mitt will create 12 Million jobs in 1st Term…

Mitt Romney has touted his job creation prowes throughout the 3 presidential debates even providing us with a number, 12 MILLION new jobs during his first term. That’s great… that’s astounding! That would best even Obama’s 5.4 million new jobs over the last 2 years. But how will he accomplish this? Well, the answer is… NOTHING. In order to create 12 million new jobs within his first term Mitt Romney, President Mitt Romney will have to do nothing whatsoever… for the simple reason that those 12 million new jobs are ALREADY slated to be created under current Obama policies. As with foreign policy, all Mr. Romney has to do is continue with what has already been done under the Obama presidency.

“Horses & Bayonets”; A Most Beautiful Moment

The most beautiful moment of the 3rd presidential debate was when President Obama educated Mitt Romney about the modern US Navy. If you look close, you can watch Romney’s jaw steadily tighten and his lip grin stretch thinner and thinner throughout the President’s lecture. Overall, the takeaway of this scene is Mr. Romney’s misunderstanding that the US Navy is not a game of boys pushing their toy ships around a map of the world, it’s about the reality of the modern military, the men and women serving within in it and the global responsibilities one takes on as commander-in-chief?

The Armstrong Scandal & Willful Disbelief

I woke up this morning to NPR and yet another story about Lance Armstrong and the ever-unfolding doping scandal. The show’s guest was speaking about a book published a few years back by an Irish author whose claims of Lance’s doping fell on many a deaf ear which are now, in light of new evidence, basking in the glow of affirmation. Despite all the mounting and apparently irrefutable evidence there is still, in me at least, a semblance of incredulity.

Daily Scoop: Finally! GOP has Proof of Voter Fraud

After almost a year of swearing voter fraud was a huge problem plaguing the American system of democracy, proof has finally come to light. The evidence to validate all the GOP-led state legislatures anti-fraud laws is now out for all to see…. and it is slowly creeping up the rungs of Republican National Committee’s ladder. Republicans finally have thier proof and it is rooted squarely in their own organizations.

Where Obama Invests His Money

During the 2nd presidential debate Mitt Romeny threw a glancing, barely above the belt gut shot at the President attempting to link Obama’s investments to China and the Caymans. It was a to blunt the Obama campaign’s foreign investment attacks against the former governor who has significant sums invested in the Cayman Islands, China and other countries. The attacks were meant to call into question Romney’s loyalties to America. His sidelong blow against the President on this topic proves fairly weak when assessed in full.
