"She arrived early to take apart the campaign office piece by piece, just as she felt so many other things about her life were being dismantled. Beth Cox wore a Mitt Romney T-shirt, a cross around her neck and fresh eyeliner, even though she had been crying on and off and knew her makeup was likely to run. A day after the election, she tuned the radio to Glenn Beck and began pulling posters and American flags off the wall. Her calendar read “Victory Day!!” and she had planned to celebrate in the office by hosting a dance party and selling Romney souvenirs. But instead she was packing those souvenirs into boxes, which would be donated to a charity that sent clothes to South America. Instead a moving company was en route to close down the office in the next 48 hours, and her friends were calling every few minutes to see how she was doing. “I will be okay,” she told one caller. “I just don’t think we will be okay."

Hmmm.  So Obama’s speech came first, around 1AM.  Then Romney spoke around 2AM.  I guess that means they didn’t bother waiting around for Romney either, right?

Right.

Bitter pricks.

Mitt Romney may have graciously conceded the election to President Obama Tuesday night, but some conservative pundits and bloggers didn’t accept defeat quite as calmly.

Donald Trump made some of the most controversial comments of the night, calling the election a ‘total sham and a travesty’ on Twitter.

‘We can’t let this happen. We should march on Washington and stop this travesty,’ he wrote. ‘Let’s fight like hell and stop this great and disgusting injustice! The world is laughing at us.’

He deleted others that called for ‘revolution,’ which he wrote when he thought Romney won the popular vote but lost the electoral college.

Rocker and Romney supporter Ted Nugent also went on a Twitter tirade.

‘Pimps whores & welfare brats & their soulless supporters hav (sic) a president to destroy America,’ he wrote. ‘Goodluk (sic) America u just voted for economic & spiritual suicide. Soulless fools.’

Racial resentment adds to GOP voter enthusiasm

abaldwin360:

Getty Images captured a photograph of a Romney supporter late last week wearing a shirt that read: “Put the White Back in the White House.”

The Romney campaign quickly disavowed that racist sentiment, but the T-shirt at a Romney rally appears to be more than an isolated incident. The closer America draws to Election Day, the more the examples pile up of ugly race-tinged attacks on President Obama.

Before the racist T-shirt, it was the empty chair “lynchings”, inspired by Clinton Eastwood’s speech to the Republican National Convention. And even before that, the racially-charged rumors that Obama was not really born in the United States bubbled to the surface again in theAlabama state GOPthe Republican convention, and even in a joke-y aside made by Mitt Romney on the campaign trail.

Indeed, racially-charged incidents have not been confined to the outer fringes of the Republican base. Mainstream conservative institutions have also flirted with arguments that could be perceived as appealing to white racial resentment—and that trend has only intensified in the final month of the campaign.

At the beginning of October, for example, Fox News, the Drudge Report and the Daily Caller promoted some “new footage” of a 2007 speech in which Obama allegedly made “racially charged” remarks to a predominantly black audience. But Obama’s actual remarks were completely innocuous, as MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow argued at the time. The only reason conservatives were hyping the video as somehow revelatory, she said, was because they wanted to imply that  ”people didn’t actually know [Obama] was this black, and if they had known he was this black they wouldn’t have elected him.”

Even members of the Romney campaign have faced accusations of deploying a neo-Southern strategy. Two days after the Daily Caller “scoop” was released, Romney surrogate John Sununu accused Obama of being “lazy”—an epithet with a long and ugly history when applied to African-American men.

The Romney campaign ran a major television commercial which some critics believe was designed to appeal to the racist stereotype of black people as lazy: the infamously false ”welfare for work” ad, which incorrectly claim the president removed the work requirement from Clinton-era welfare reform. As the American Prospect’s Paul Waldman said in early August, after the ad was first released, Romney staffers understood “the kinds of reactions people have when you start talking about welfare and those freeloading welfare recipients who are taking your hard-working money so they can goof off.”

From a Black Man to Mitt Romney: Fuck you.
Black people don’t want free shit, you out of touch Reed Richards hair having motherfucker. We want the same shit that your white constituencyy wants: Opportunity, good school, a place to shit with a door on it and the ability to not be denied converage when we have a medical problem. We’re no different than anybody else but youwouldn’t know that because the only black person you probably know personally you just happen to be running against him for president.
I’m tired of these piece of shit Republicans talking DOWN and whitesplaining to people of color AS IF they had it hard all their lives. NO Mitt Romney, you never had to worry about the price of milk ever in your fucking life. You were raised with a silver spoon in your mouth and your father probably owned a silver spoon factory.
If you were really in touch, you’d talk about JOBS because we have a 14% unemployment rate in the black community but your part couldn’t pass a fart through cotton much less a fucking jobs bill. You’d talk about the safety net but we all know that you and Rand Paul are looking to take a pair of comically large shears to that motherfucker.
Instead you walk in front of the NAACP and talk PAST them and your message hits your goddamn racist, sexist, homophobic, bible thumping, hate ridden, against their own interest base that ignores when we spend half a million on cruise missiles but complain when they see somebody cashing an unemployment check that happens to own an iPhone. FUCK YOU.
I have a goddamn question for you Willard:
What about your perpetually poor white voters in states like West Virginia, Mississippi, Missouri, and Louisiana who vote for you even though you give no fucking care about them. As long as you hammer on how black Obama is, how the liberals want to shoot their white women with abortion guns and the fact that gays want to marry your children they’ll continue voting for you. They staff your fucked up infantry and you’ve spent the past 60 years brainwashing them into thinking they deserve to get welfare checks but the second black people get them, it’s a problem.
Fuck you and your face. Fuck your hair. Fuck your party. Fuck Newt Gingrich and fuck the whole conservative movement that has allowed their side to turn into this giant self-eating mutilated blob.
Partake in the finest selection of horse penises.

RNC leader says it’s wrong to meet with American Indians because they killed General Custer

“General George Armstrong Custer died in 1876, but that doesn’t mean we should forget his legacy of slaughtering indigenous peoples. That’s why Republican National Committee leader and GOP lobbyist Pat Rogers has condemned New Mexico governor Susana Martinez for meeting with American Indians…”.* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur shares his thoughts.

*Read more here from Louis Peitzman in Gawker: http://gawker.com/5937849/rnc-leader-says-governor-dishonored-general-custers…

Well, if that’s how we’re going to play it, then I demand that no one meets with white people because they invaded the lands of my people, forced us out, and killed us. Sorry, Pat. You’re out.

PRESENTE.ORG presents NO SOMOS RUBIOS - I am appalled that Senator Marco Rubio is being utilized by the GOP to woo Latin@/ Hispanic voters. Senator Marco Rubio’s positions do not reflect what the very broad Hispanic/Latin@ community would love to see implemented. “No Somos Rubios” is a pun (We Are Not Blonde/Blanco) and the slogan of the campaign to educate voters and the media on these issues.

Republicans want Florida Senator Marco Rubio to be their Vice President. 

The GOP thinks that Rubio can “deliver the Latino vote,” but Rubio stands with the Tea Party more than he stands with Latinos on the issues we care 

 I don’t make many requests on this blog but if you could, please watch and circulate this 1 minute video. We may not have the advertising dollars but we have social media and unconventional techniques.
