What I want to talk about is the reaction to rush's comments from the republican candidates, and, to be more specific, the front runner. Mitt Romney has had quite a few days to denounce rush and his boorish comments straight out of the Paleolithic Age; but he didn't. All we got from Mitt was a very timid, "Not language I would have used." Harlot? Loose woman? Tramp? Floozy? What words, exactly, would Mitt have used?
It's no secret that Mitt will say or do anything to become president. But this time he actually hurt himself by overestimating the power of rush's 20 million listeners. By not doing the courageous thing and coming out and condemning rush, Mitt showed A-merry-ca that he is a typical politician who lacks the courage to denounce an unhinged, over the top, talk show host. A host who was being abandoned by the advertisers on his show. Mitt, now we know who you are siding with in the republican war on women.
"I’m focusing on the issues that I think are significant in the country today, and that’s why I’m here talking about jobs and Ohio.”
Let me translate that for you: I will not say anything to piss off my republican base or rush's supporters, because I am in the middle of a fight to get the republican nomination in November.
The problem is, of course, that others are watching. And the people who might make the difference in this coming election are starting to take notice. How can Mitt expect to stand up to Ahmadinejad if he can't stand up to rush? All rush has is a big mouth, the other guy might eventually have a nuke. The stakes are pretty high, so A-merry-cans really need to ask themselves these questions.
Finally, I am looking forward to seeing the Obama tapes that our "dearly departed" Andrew Breitbart's friend claims to be releasing in the next couple of weeks. (Just a quick thought: If there is something truly damaging in the film, why not hold it until October?)
"On his program Thursday, Fox News’ Sean Hannity spoke with Steve Bannon (producer of The Undefeated, among various other films) about a series of tapes Andrew Breitbart claimed to have about Barack Obama. Breitbart mentioned the tapes during his recent CPAC speech, sharing that “[w]e are going to vet [Barack Obama] from his college days to show you why racial division and class warfare are central to what hope and change was sold in 2008.”

Bannon confirmed that there exists a series of tapes taken during Obama’s time at Harvard, which will be publicly released “in a week or two.” Breitbart has been “very systematic about going through this thing,” Bannon added." [Source]
Oh- oh, maybe they have film clips of his Oness drawing up a fake birth certificate? It all should be interesting. As they say, the camera never lies.
