Some republicans don't like Condi, and 35 questions for Mitt.

Before I start this post I would like to, once again, ask Mr. Romney to release his tax returns. I really want to see them because I am thinking about voting for the guy, and before I do that I need to know as much as I can about the candidate I pull the lever for.

Anyway, speaking of Mitt, I have said before that I think that he should consider Condi Rice as his running mate. I think it would be a good political move on his part, and it would actually help him with voters who are sitting on the fence. That's just my two cents.

Having said that, knowing his party the way that I do, I am thinking that it might not happen.

"Vdare, the website run by white nationalist and CPAC panelist Peter Brimelow, today editorialized against the possibility of Condoleezza Rice becoming Mitt Romney's running mate.
Someone writing under the name "Patrick Cleburne" (Cleburne was a Confederate general) calls Rice an "an Affirmative Action cipher with no visible talent except for obeying Neocons" and says her nomination would indicate that "a Romney Presidency is likely to degenerate into minority appeasement."

A similarly-themed "Say No to Rice!!!" email forward sent to BuzzFeed includes a link to the Vdare item. It is a pledge which attacks Rice on her foreign policy, experience, and looks, suggests Arizona Governor Jan Brewer as a superior female vice presidential candidate:

Sorry Condi, it doesn't look like the [right] wngnuts like you very much. I just hope that these mean spirited comments will not affect the vetting process and Mr. Romney will still consider you as his running mate.

Finally, it is obvious that Mitt has some problems. But fortunately for him, unlike Jay- Z, he does not have 99 of them; he actually has 35.

Every Obama supporter should be hoping and pushing for Romney to choose Jan Brewer as his running mate. Jan Brewer is just another Sarah Palin.

Did you know that if you sell your house after 2012 you will pay a 3.8% sales tax on it? That’s $3,800 on a $100,000 home, etc. When did this happen? It’s in the health care bill, — and it goes into effect in 2013. Why 2013? Could it be so that it doesn’t come to light until after the 2012 elections? So, this is ‘change you can believe in’?

Under the new health care bill all real estate transactions will be subject to a 3.8% sales tax.

If you sell a $400,000 home, there will be a $15,200 tax. This bill is set to screw the retiring generation, — who often downsize their homes. Does this make your November, 2012 vote more important?

Oh, you weren’t aware that this was in the ObamaCare bill? Guess what; you aren’t alone! There are more than a few members of Congress that weren’t aware of it either.

Wonder why the fauxpert declined to cite the relevant portion of the Act.
Have to admit, Palin is a far better salesperson for the cons.
Rice serves to remind us of the failure of bush and the bushistas. She also might not want the scrutiny...both professional and personal.

The health law will impose a 3.8 percent tax on investment profits and other non-wage income starting in 2013. But that tax applies only to couples with adjusted gross income of $250,000 (or individuals with AGI of $200,000). About 95 percent of households make less than that, and will be exempt from the law no matter what.

In addition, couples who sell a personal residence can exclude the first $500,000 in profit from tax ($250,000 for singles). That would be profit from a home sale, not proceeds. So a couple that bought a house for $100,000 and sold it for $599,000 would owe no tax, even under the health law.

If that couple had AGI in excess of $250,000 and made a profit of $500,010, it would owe the new tax. On ten bucks. That would be an extra 38 cents.

You can check out the rest of the article over at Forbes. Do some research before you go posting stupid shit. Dumb ass.

You shouldnt be taxing any of my assets to pay for your shit. Take care of yourself lazy dumbass.

Just about anyone who owns a small business of any worth has EBITA over 250k you dumbass. This is peanuts and reported as private income you dumbass. Most companies with an average EBITA of 300k after expenses the owner is lucky to take home 30-40k yearly. Now add more taxes and there are a lot more where this came from. All to pay for someone elses free shit, you dumbass.

Learn how the world works before you qoute a magazine article you don't understand dumbass.

If an employer does not offer health coverage, and at least one employee qualifies for a health tax credit, the employer must pay an additional non-deductible tax of $2000 for all full-time employees. This provision applies to all employers with 50 or more employees. If any employee actually receives coverage through the exchange, the penalty on the employer for that employee rises to $3000. If the employer requires a waiting period to enroll in coverage of 30-60 days, there is a $400 tax per employee ($600 if the period is 60 days or longer).

Medicine Cabinet Tax($5 bil/Jan 2011): Americans no longer able to use health savings account (HSA), flexible spending account (FSA), or health reimbursement (HRA) pre-tax dollars to purchase non-prescription, over-the-counter medicines (except insulin)

HSA Withdrawal Tax Hike($1.4 bil/Jan 2011): Increases additional tax on non-medical early withdrawals from an HSA from 10 to 20 percent, disadvantaging them relative to IRAs and other tax-advantaged accounts, which remain at 10 percent.

Obamacare taxes continued:

Flexible Spending Account Cap – aka“Special Needs Kids Tax”($13 bil/Jan 2013): Imposes cap of $2500 (Indexed to inflation after 2013) on FSAs (now unlimited). . There is one group of FSA owners for whom this new cap will be particularly cruel and onerous: parents of special needs children. There are thousands of families with special needs children in the United States, and many of them use FSAs to pay for special needs education. Tuition rates at one leading school that teaches special needs children in Washington, D.C. (National Child Research Center) can easily exceed $14,000 per year. Under tax rules, FSA dollars can be used to pay for this type of special needs education.

Tax on Medical Device Manufacturers($20 bil/Jan 2013): Medical device manufacturers employ 360,000 people in 6000 plants across the country. This law imposes a new 2.3% excise tax. Exemptions include items retailing for less than $100.

Raise "Haircut" for Medical Itemized Deduction from 7.5% to 10% of AGI($15.2 bil/Jan 2013): Currently, those facing high medical expenses are allowed a deduction for medical expenses to the extent that those expenses exceed 7.5 percent of adjusted gross income (AGI). The new provision imposes a threshold of 10 percent of AGI; it is waived for 65+ taxpayers in 2013-2016 only.

Tax on Indoor Tanning Services($2.7 billion/July 1, 2010): New 10 percent excise tax on Americans using indoor tanning salons

Elimination of tax deduction for employer-provided retirement Rx drug coverage in coordination with Medicare Part D($4.5 bil/Jan 2013)

Blue Cross/Blue Shield Tax Hike($0.4 bil/Jan 2010): The special tax deduction in current law for Blue Cross/Blue Shield companies would only be allowed if 85 percent or more of premium revenues are spent on clinical services

Excise Tax on Charitable Hospitals(Min$/immediate): $50,000 per hospital if they fail to meet new "community health assessment needs," "financial assistance," and "billing and collection" rules set by HHS

Tax on Innovator Drug Companies($22.2 bil/Jan 2010): $2.3 billion annual tax on the industry imposed relative to share of sales made that year.

Tax on Health Insurers($60.1 bil/Jan 2014): Annual tax on the industry imposed relative to health insurance premiums collected that year. The stipulation phases in gradually until 2018, and is fully-imposed on firms with $50 million in profits.

$500,000 Annual Executive Compensation Limit for Health Insurance Executives($0.6 bil/Jan 2013)

Employer Reporting of Insurance on W-2(Min$/Jan 2011): Preamble to taxing health benefits on individual tax returns.

Even More Obamacare taxes:

Corporate 1099-MISC Information Reporting($17.1 bil/Jan 2012): Requires businesses to send 1099-MISC information tax forms to corporations (currently limited to individuals), a huge compliance burden for small employers

“Black liquor” tax hike(Tax hike of $23.6 billion). This is a tax increase on a type of bio-fuel.

Codification of the “economic substance doctrine”(Tax hike of $4.5 billion). This provision allows the IRS to disallow completely-legal tax deductions and other legal tax-minimizing plans just because the IRS deems that the action lacks “substance” and is merely intended to reduce taxes owed.

Repeal this monstrosity, if not there will be no economy or healthcare at all left. You will get free access to nothing...dumbass.

piles of x says:

All other presidential candidates gave us several years of returns so what gives?

What? Wrong as usual. John Kerry showed NOTHING. Neither did his sleazy running mate, John Edwards.

Ross Perot never flashed his tax returns and neither did Bill Clinton.

Meanwhile, inasmuch as Obama has been endlessly touted as a "smart" guy, I want some proof. His SAT and LSAT scores are solid indicators of intelligence. No dummies get high scores. But we all know he didn't get high scores. If he had, the scores would have been leaked.

On the other hand, Senator Chuck Schumer let it be known years ago that he scored 1600 on his SAT.

I agree with Field, if you want to run this country you need to be a bit more forthcoming and a little less hypocrisy wingnuts,

Oh. So John Edwards is a forthcoming, hypocrisy-free kind of guy that Democrats want for a president? Well, given the willingness to support Edwards, we now know there's no human too low to become a leader of Democrats.

...you want to see freaking college grades but not the finances of the guy you want to run the country? Strange.

We can always count on pile-it-on-X to cough up the stupid comment.

If Romney had engaged in illicit behavior at Bain, then it would have been detected in the financial statements of the companies in which Bain invested.

However, since hundreds of analysts on Wall Street were scouring those documents looking for flaws, it's clear noting consequential surfaced. If there had been problems, the Wall Street Journal would have reported them.

That's how it works, bonehead.

Shows how weak their arguments are.

Nope. It shows you can't read financial documents and that you have been totally buffaloed by Obama, the least competent president since Jimmy Carter.

Well lets see, a post about a tax from Obamacare with a listing of taxes from Obamacare is on topic.

There is a 3.8% tax stemming from a healthcare bill (more free stuff) that will be levied on americans to pay for illegal aliens and many who have never and will never work in their life. Taxes on money that has already been taxed numerous times already, all to pay for someone elses' free stuff.

Repeal this monstrosity before we have no health care and no economy. Or we will have seperated states in this country of takers and makers. Where will you be? Sitting at the border demanding to be let in as it is your "right" no doubt.

Now that the increasingly erratic and desperately sleazy Obama campaign has decided to cavalierly throw around the word "felony" when it comes to pushing a campaign of lies surrounding Mitt Romney and Bain Capital, this seems like a good time to jump in the wayback machine for a look at the actual convicted felons, criminals, and dubious characters who have always been associated with Barack Obama's political life.

1. Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich: Sentenced to 14 years in prison for political corruption.

NBC Chicago:

President Barack Obama's chief of staff, then a congressman in Illinois, apparently attempted to trade favors with embattled Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich while he was in office, according to newly disclosed e-mails obtained by The Associated Press.

Emanuel agreed to sign a letter to the Chicago Tribune supporting Blagojevich in the face of a scathing editorial by the newspaper that ridiculed the governor for self-promotion. Within hours, Emanuel's own staff asked for a favor of its own: The release of a delayed $2 million grant to a school in his district.

http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/Rahm-Traded-Favors-with-Blago-Report-96812049.html


2. Tony Rezko: Sentenced to 10 and a half years for corruption and kickbacks.

Politico:

Rezko raised money for Obama when he ran for Illinois senator, but not during his presidential campaign, the AP noted.

Obama also involved Rezko in a house deal after he was elected to the U.S. Senate, a move he later called “a boneheaded mistake,” according to a 2008 report in ABC News.

Obama wanted to purchase a home that the seller had a specific condition on: the adjacent empty lot to the house had to be purchased at the same time, ABC News reported. In the house deal, Rezko’s wife paid the full asking price for that parcel, $625,000.

Obama shelled out $300,000 under the house’s asking price, paying $1.65 million, according to ABC News. Obama then purchased a part of Rezko’s lot for $104,500.

“It was a mistake to have been engaged with him at all in this or any other personal business dealing that would allow him, or anyone else, to believe he had done me a favor,” Obama told the Sun-Times at the time.

Obama said his connection to Rezko was “above board and legal.”

Rezko and others connected to him gave Obama’s 2004 Senate campaign more than $120,000, ABC News reported.

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1111/68935.html

While Rezko's wife paid the full asking price for the land, Obama paid $300,000 under the asking price for the house. The house sold for $1,650,000 and the price Rezko's wife paid for the land was $625,000.

Obama denies there was anything unusual about the price disparity. He says the price on the house was dropped because it had been on the market for some time but that the price for the adjacent land remained high because there was another offer.

Obama then expanded his property by buying a strip of the Rezko land for $104,500, which the senator maintains was a fair market price.

Obama later told the Chicago Sun-Times, "It was a mistake to have been engaged with him at all in this or any other personal business dealing that would allow him, or anyone else, to believe he had done me a favor."

Obama had known Rezko long before the house deal, calling him a "friend."

An ABC News review of campaign records shows Rezko, and people connected to him, contributed more than $120,000 to Obama's 2004 campaign for the U.S. Senate, much of it at a time when Rezko was the target of an FBI investigation.

It's important to keep in mind that this was dutiful reporting from the media. Any attempts to turn this into the Bain-style narrative it deserved and still deserves to be has always been blunted by the media. This is the shadiest land deal involving a politician in my lifetime, and Obama got away with it legally and politically.

political calculus said...

Condi Rice has a terrific resume. But that hardly matters when someone is chosen as a VP running mate.

Consider Joe Biden, who made the most outrageous statement about Obama -- "clean, articulate..." -- that any public figure had the misfortune to utter.

Consider John Edwards, the most despicable person ever to run for the highest offices in the nation.

Though Rice might be impressive to an employer, she has no net beneficial impact on Romney's election hopes.

It's impossible to believe a single black voter will vote for Romney if she's his running mate, and in most cases if any blacks did vote for Romney, the votes would change nothing in the states where they vote.

New York is going to give all its electoral votes to Obama -- no matter how many blacks vote for Romney. Same for California.

Moreover, putting Rice on the ticket pressures Democrats to put Hillary on their ticket. Why? Biden is a minor liability and it would undermine the ethos of the Democrats if the Republicans were actually first to get a woman elected to the vice presidency, thereby opening the possibility of her running for the presidency.

But putting Rice on the ballot will have the same affect it had when Walter Mondale ran with Geraldine Ferraro and when McCain ran with Palin. It signified surrender. Long before election day it was clear that both Mondale and McCain would lose.

So, can Rice help Romney get enough votes to win in the battleground states? Not likely. She's been out of the public eye for four years and she's never held elective office. That's not a vote-getting scenario.

Of course, Romney would do well to invite her to join his cabinet.

frank luntz said...

If Romney wants a woman for a running mate, then he should check in with Shelley Moore-Capito, a member of the House from Charleston, West Virginia. Her father, Arch Moore, was governor of West Virginia, and she's got everything a female VP needs to help the presidential candidate.

I hope she isn't the candidate but Drudge is very close with the guy running Romneys campaign.

Romney doesn't need tactics like Obama to get people to talk about other smear stuff. All he has to do is talk about Obamas performance, constitutional runarounds, foodstamps and welfare and he is. Obama is the one trying to come up with nonsense to distract you from remembering how Jimmy Carter is now even a better president than he is.

Whats with the stupidity about tax returns? We know the moonbats have been pouring over them looking for something and I am sure he paid every penny he owed.

So, whats the point are Democrats trying to say wook he is a rich guy he is evil. Or look he used writeoffs.

Well, lets put it this way, we know he is rich and we know he used right-offs. Good that means he is not a liberal moron and just the type of guy we need. NOt some bloviating blowhard who accomplished nothing but playing dirty politics in chicago to get elected, then sitting there voting present and saying nothing for 99 times. Then taking over the countyr and literally dismantling it and all the while playing the petulant child - it's all his fault mommy, really it's not mine.

Go home little boy, we need adults to fix things.

While I am repulsed by Romney, I gotta think to myself; "Who would be better for the economy"? A rising tide lifts all ships (economically speaking), and the man knows how to turn a buck. Obama hasnt shown himself to be an advocate of the Black folk here in the U.S., so I dont see a reason to rally behind the Big O. Not even out of racial solidarity. Im looking out for the pockets in this one. My kids got a powerful need to eat for the next four years.

Ms. Rice has serious questions to answer about her actions as National Security Advisor during the construction of a National Security State & as a permanent state of war was incorporated into our foreign policy. Even our current president seems to buy into it. Because of Mitt's utter lack of foreign policy experience, he'd bring back the Bush criminal team anyway, Might as well start with Rice.
