SO MUCH TROUBLE IN THE WORLD

Off Road and Out Of Bounds
Last Thursday, in a speech near Toledo, Mitt Romney told the crowd that Chrysler would soon be sending their Jeep manufacturing jobs (currently based in Ohio) to China.
Chrysler quickly came out in the press, labeling these claims as "inaccurate" and "clearly misleading". The Obama campaign has just launched this television ad to set the record straight.
In response, a Romney spokesman explained: "The larger point that the Governor made is that rather than creating jobs here, the foreign owner, handpicked by President Obama, is planning to add jobs overseas."
Look closely at what he said. "Add jobs overseas", not "Send jobs overseas"
Jeep vehicles that are built in China, are sold to the Chinese people. This pick up in Chinese production merely suggests that Jeep is once again showing strength, and competing in a once abandoned market.
As a past Jeep Wrangler owner ... and as a future Jeep Wrangler owner ... I would like to remind Mitt how great the Jeep vehicles are for traversing mountains of bullshit.

Time to Play "Face the Racist"
The other night, I turned on CNN in hopes of getting some intelligent Presidential election coverage and instead I happened to catch a follow up commentary by John Sununu on Piers Morgan.
John is no stranger to making a complete ass out of himself on national television, but at the (1:02) mark of this clip something more sinister showed through his thin veneer.
John Sununu - "When you take a look at Colin Powell, you have to wonder whether that's an endorsement based on issues or whether he's got a slightly different reason for preferring President Obama."
Piers Morgan - "What reason would that be?"
John Sununu - "Well ... I think when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being President of the United States, I applaud Colin for standing with him."
When you take a look at Colin Powell ... ?
What are we looking at?
Are we looking at his black skin, John?
Perhaps we should be looking at your cold black heart, John.
I had my coat on, and was ready to go toilet paper my local Republican Party campaign office, when a glimmer of light appeared on my TV.

A Life Well Lived
Today, America lost one of its great politicians ... and more importantly a decent man.
Senator George McGovern passed away this morning at the age of 90.
In his 50+ years as a public servant, McGovern made major contributions to the anti-war and civil rights movements. In his later years, he immersed himself in the fight to end world hunger. His 1972 Presidential run helped launch the political careers of Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham.
I'd like to think that we will see future politicians cut from his cloth, but I highly doubt it.
