We've always been contra Republicans generally (that party has more loony tunes and idiots per congressional district than does Byberry state mental hospital and a positively delusional fairytale economic ideology that's resulted ultimately in catastrophe of one sort or another wherever and whenever it's been freely implemented), but here's a more current specific reason to be contra Republicans this presidential election year. From a leaked transcript of an upcoming cover story in Fortune magazine by Andy Serwer in New York and David Whitford in Boston, Politico reports the following gem from the lips of presumed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney:
“[F]irst there are programs I would eliminate [on becoming president]. Obamacare being one of them but also various subsidy programs — the Amtrak subsidy, the PBS subsidy, the subsidy for the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities. Some of these things, like those endowment efforts and PBS I very much appreciate and like what they do in many cases, but I just think they have to stand on their own rather than receiving money borrowed from other countries, as our government does on their behalf. [emphasis ours]So, not only delusional loony tunes and idiots, but woodenheaded philistines as well (does Mr. Romney actually imagine a meaningful savings of money would result from such cuts?). Make certain y'all vote this coming November to ensure that not only are Republicans kept out of the White House, but that the Congress is cleansed of as many Republicans as possible.
