Harold Ford - asshole elite

Listening to the fawning way he describes Paul Ryan is not shocking, given what and who Ford really is.

According to him, Ryan is talented, good looking, not scary, and not tied to Akin.

Why is ford even on the air? Other than to blather his GOP talking points? Everyone else makes sense and speaks from knowledge. Not he

From a 1000 points of light, to 1000 points of blight

That, in a nutshell, is the Ryan/Romney plan for this country.

Social services, investments, infrastructure, even scientific and artistic progress - this is the whole purpose of America. It even says so in the preamble. (that's the Constitution of the United States, for those Koch-based life forms and trolls who seem to be handing around the water fountain of late)

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the General Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the United States of America.

Them's some powerful words. Only 54 or so, of them, but wow, what an impact. Here's how the Ryan/Romney campaign has perceived them:

We the Corporate controllers of the United States, in order to eradicate all unions, purchase Justice, insure private takeover of all public functions, to overpay for the Military Industrial Complex, to erase all signs of welfare or the general good, to insist on Blessings from the Church we tell you and each and every sperm and ova of you to follow in the future, do bless and ordain those parts of the Constitution that we may, from time to time, deem appropriate and useful, while we ignore the rest of the pesky, ancient crap that some elder deists put together on the fly.

Live(?) Blog of Romney's Iowa oratoricatory presentation to "you people."

CSPIN - 1 is moving from an adoring crowd at Obama's Colorado talk to Iowa where Romney is guarantinated to exceedify his lying opponent's script-reading to a bunch of sitting, stern, fat, old white people.

Obama hitting it out of the park in Colorado.

The intro by Fluke was nice, and it warmed up the crowd (as if it needed it).

Obama is now talking up his health care program. F I N A L L Y ! Especially how it helps women now.

And the crowd is loving it!

Try it on CSPIN 1

He is giving one hell of a speech, talking breast cancer, birth control, insurance companies, and more.
"There's nothing conservative about a government which prevents a woman from making her own health care choices."
