So much for Lady Alex's less-than triumphant return to the belly of the beast. Any more extended stays in D.C. and she'll be another Beltway PodBot. You know what's really, REALLY "INCREDIBLY COMPELLING" about the Romney family story, Alex? THEY FLED TO MEXICO TO ESCAPE A POLYGAMY BAN. As Montana Gov. Schweitzer said:
Psst, Alex: Guess who used to edit "The Note"? That's right, that "appropriator" to your right you call "the great" Mark Halperin. A second source, the Huffington Post, confirms the intent of the Romney clan's move to Mexico: "The Romneys are Mexican since Miles Park Romney crossed the border in 1884, rejecting the Edmund Act that in 1882 declared polygamy a felony."“I am not alleging by any stretch that Romney is a polygamist and approves of [the] polygamy lifestyle, but his father was born into [a] polygamy commune in Mexico,” Schweitzer said. Romney’s grandfather and other Mormons settled in Mexico following an 1890 ban on polygamy, a practice the church calls “plural marriage.”
MITT ROMNEY LIED AGAIN! IT'S UN-FUCKING-BELIEVABLE HOW THE BELTWAY MEDIA SHEEPLE DON'T FOLLOW THROUGH! IF YOU KNOW THIS SOCIOPATH IS A SERIAL LIAR, YOUR JOB IS TO NOT LET HIM GET AWAY WITH IT. PLAIN AND SIMPLE. DOING YOUR JOBS ETHICALLY IS.NOT.ROCKET.SCIENCE.
Mitt Romney LIED a lot more than twice. But I just don't have the navel-gazing "research" staffs MSNBC has. FIRST, he LIED AGAIN (!) by saying President Obama had concluded no new trade agreements. HERE IS THE TRUTH. (Clickee, thingee, linkee, Alex — can you do that, please!?) SECOND, Romney said the President had done "nothing" (!?) about immigration!? Excuse me, but the DREAM ACT passed the Senate with 55 votes — a solid majority for most of its history, until the Republicans instituted the anti-democratic MINORITY OBSTRUCTIONIST RULE OF ABUSING THE FILIBUSTER with a 60-vote supermajority requirement.
So basically, Romney and the treasonous Republicans are sitting on EVERY LEGISLATIVE MEASURE to improve the economy and enact immigration reform, but as soon as they kick the black guy out of the White House, HE, ROMNEY WILL PASS "COMPREHENSIVE" IMMIGRATION REFORM WITH BIPARTISAN SUPPORT!? Please. He's talking to Latinos here. We don't get fooled by some whitebread IANQUI. We're not naïve, compliant sheeple like the Idiot Punditocracy. Maybe Lady Alex ... I don't know.
PS. — When ARI MELBER is to your LEFT, Alex, you're in DEEP BELTWAY MUCK.
