#Breitbart.com EXCLUSIVE BOMBSHELL: Romney Lost

As commenters spew racism and conspiracy theories
Wingnuts • Views: 28,869

As the right wing recriminations get louder and more strident, one of the big stories in Wingnut Land today is the Romney campaign’s absolutely pitiful “get out the vote” effort they dubbed “ORCA.” At the ridiculous fake news site breitbart.com, hack Joel Pollak (who, last week, was busy churning out one deceptive article after another about how Romney was destined to win) has one of their “exclusives” that isn’t exclusive at all: Exclusive - Inside Orca: How the Romney Campaign Suppressed Its Own Vote.

Before the election, there was much fear-mongering on the Democratic side about the Republicans’ supposed plans to suppress turnout among Obama voters. After the election, GOP strategist Karl Rove accused the Obama campaign of ‘suppressing the vote’ by running a negative campaign against Romney that kept voters at home.

The truth is much worse. There was, in fact, massive suppression of the Republican vote—by the Romney campaign, through the diversion of nearly 40,000 volunteers to a failing computer program.

There was no Plan B; there was only confusion, and silence.

You think maybe having their noses rubbed in the failure of Mitt Romney’s tech staff will lead to changes in how they mislead their readers with noxious hate propaganda?

Not gonna happen. This spate of introspection will last another few days, then they’ll be back to spewing hatred at Obama and pandering to the extreme right.

In fact, the Breitbart audience is already doing it — Joel Pollak is a little behind the curve.

Their NOT so much stupid as they are LAZY…They voted for Obama because he be da Santa Claus early for Christmas.

But for these kids, the party will be over before too long and that is where stupid comes into the picture.

There is no cure for stupid!

[…]

Hey, that was just the half of it. They were bused in from Chicago to vote in Wisconsin and had no idea they were in Wisconsin. They just got on the bus because Obama told them to. Then they voted illegally because Obama told them to. Then they went home because Obama told them to. Yeah, now THAT is Obama’s brand of “Americanism” !

[…]

I agree— except there is a cure for stupid.

Reality. Let reality come down hard and let them reap the consequences of their actions.

I feel no sympathy and will lift no finger for those who put us on this path. I used to work on charity efforts and donate to causes to help others— but I am done now. I work for me and my family, and to hell with the rest.

[…]

This election was stolen. hacked. This website/app was hacked. It worked a few days before because we tested it.
We are dealing with criminals - a gang of criminals in the Obama regime.
trust me. More fun and games to come. we have not seen anything yet

[…]

They blame Whites for all their self-inflicted misery. I agree they will pay for it in spades.

On and on it goes, and there are quite a few deleted comments that were apparently too openly racist for breitbart.com.

205204 voters in buses. This would be a line, bumper to bumper, of city buses a mere 16.1 miles.

Occupy Wall Street Launches ‘Rolling Jubilee’ To Buy Up And Forgive Debt

Members of Occupy Wall Street — various branches of which have recently been saving families from foreclosure and aiding victims of Hurricane Sandy — have launched a new initiative. Coined the “Rolling Jubilee,” Occupiers are raising money to buy distressed debt from financial firms.

But while purchasers of debt usually hound debtors in order to make a return on their investment, Occupy plans to simply abolish the debt for the lucky individuals whose accounts they grab. As explained on the Rolling Jubilee website:

We buy debt for pennies on the dollar, but instead of collecting it, we abolish it. We cannot buy specific individuals’ debt – instead, we help liberate debtors at random through a campaign of mutual support, good will, and collective refusal.

Organizer David Rees explained further:

OWS is going to start buying distressed debt (medical bills, student loans, etc.) in order to forgive it. As a test run, we spent $500, which bought $14,000 of distressed debt. We then ERASED THAT DEBT. (If you’re a debt broker, once you own someone’s debt you can do whatever you want with it — traditionally, you hound debtors to their grave trying to collect. We’re playing a different game. A MORE AWESOME GAME.)

This is a simple, powerful way to help folks in need — to free them from heavy debt loads so they can focus on being productive, happy and healthy.

I really do believe part of the reason Romney lost is because the GOP severely overestimated the number of people who either dislike or outright detest Barack Obama.

Attack ads worked well with Kerry in 2004, mainly because nobody really liked him, even the people who agreed with his politics.

But the attack ads backfired massively on them in 2008 and yet they failed to learn. I guess they assumed that four years of presidency would make Obama more vulnerable to the sort of brain-dead propaganda that they ran.

In doing so, they were mainly just preaching to the choir. And making themselves look idiotic. Because an awful lot of people still like Obama, even if they disagree with his politics.

They do not see him as an elitist or an affirmative-action baby. They see him as someone who came from a non-priveleged background and made it through hard work and dedication.

The Men of the American Family Association Explain how George Clooney Swung the Election to Obama

My favorite part:

Farah argued that America is now facing God’s judgment and it is “going to get worse” because “the little pockets of blue are dictating to the big swaths of red.” Apparently, Farah hasn’t figured out that those “little pockets of blue” evidently have more people residing in them than the “big swaths of red” and that geographical size doesn’t determine population. Later, Wildmon expressed utter amazement that Americans re-elected Obama, and Farah said a person randomly selected from a phone book should have been able to defeat the President.

44 erik_t  Fri, Nov 9, 2012 11:46:01am

Holy pants, this is just magical.

At 6:30AM on Tuesday, I went to the polls. I was immediately turned away because I didn't have my poll watcher certificate. Many, many people had this problem. The impression I got was this was taken care of because they had "registered me". Others were as well. But apparently, I was supposed to go on my own to a Victory Center to pick it up, but that was never communicated properly. Outside of the technical problems, this was the single biggest failure of the operation. They simply didn't inform people that this was a requirement. In fact, check out my "checklist" from my ORCA packet:

romneychecklist.png

Notice anything missing? My guess is the second "Chair (if allowed)" was supposed to be "poll watcher certificate" but they put chair twice. This was an instruction packet that went out to 30,000+ people. Did no one proof-read it?

We buy debt for pennies on the dollar, but instead of collecting it, we abolish it. We cannot buy specific individuals’ debt – instead, we help liberate debtors at random through a campaign of mutual support, good will, and collective refusal.

Interesting idea but I'm skeptical if they've thought this all the way through.
[Link: taxes.about.com...]

Canceled Debt That is Taxable
Anytime a lender cancels or forgives debt, that is usually a taxable event. "Generally, if a debt you owe is canceled or forgiven, other than as a gift or bequest, you must include the canceled amount in your income." (Source: Publication 525)

Debt forgiveness is reported by the lender using Form 1099-C, Cancellation of Debt. Individuals report the forgiven debt on their Form 1040, Line 21 as other income.

The tax laws provide several exceptions to the tax treatment of forgiven debts. Tax-free treatment of mortgage debt is the most generous and easiest to calculate.

Mortgage Restructuring and Foreclosures
Individuals who lost their homes through foreclosure will not have to pay income tax on the amount of mortgage debt that was forgiven or canceled. Tax-free treatment is also available to people who restructured their mortgages loans for a lower balance.

Since they're not going through the foreclosure/restructuring process they are creating possibly a very large tax liability for random people who they know nothing about. It might not be such a smart idea.

Fox News guest: Obama won by lying about ‘rape camps’ under Romney

On Thursday, tea party-backed radio host Michael Graham told Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly that President Barack Obama scared voters by claiming that women would be “forced into rape camps” under the Republican presidential nominee.

Graham explained that Obama was not elected with a mandate because “he didn’t run on an affirmative campaign.”

“He ran on the Republicans are Satan incarnate and if women vote for them, they’re going to be forced into rape camps,” the radio host insisted. “And when that’s your campaign, you can’t be surprised when the people you ran against don’t want to work with you and you don’t have an issue to rally people around.”

This is the #1 challenge that will define the Republican Party for the next generation.

They have a clear choice.
Option #1: Attempt to appeal to the Hispanic, Asian, and African-American voting demographics, as well as women, by moderating their message -and VOTING it - to something that doesn't immediately turn those groups' collective stomachs. To do so, however means that their SoCon base will abandon them.

Option #2: Tack farther to the right than they currently have. Instead of simply giving lip service and quiet tolerance to organizations like the John Birch Society and the like, embrace the Buchanans, the Derbyshires, and give guys like Jared Taylor a visible platform to their whole racial identity message that is merely part of a whispering campaign within their party. Obviously, this option loses them any hope of regaining the political center, even though it fits with their ideological "purity" viewpoint.

As an older (57) white male I can say with certainty that the changing demographics do NOT drive me nuts,in fact quite the opposite, I am happy that we geezer white males will no longer be solely to blame anymore.

I certainly remember also those speeches about old white geezers driving Cadillacs and eating T-bone steaks.

Also "welfare old white geezer."

Texas GOP Official Calls for Territorial Separation from Obama-Voting ‘Maggots’

According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Morrison, a Tea Party-affiliated Ron Paul supporter, called for an "amicable divorce" between his state and the rest of the country, particularly the "maggots" who voted for President Obama.

The 33-year-old goes on to attack Asian-Americans and Hispanic for voting on an "ethnic basis," and called Obama "their president."

The Star-Telegram notes that Morrison isn't just some fringe kook with access to a computer — he also happens to be the man "chosen by former State Board of Education Chairman Don McLeroy to help screen Texas public school textbooks."

David Petraeus today resigned as director of the CIA after admitting an extra-marital affair.

The former general had been one of the most respected figures in the military and intelligence establishment, but has stepped down to deal with the 'personal and professional issues' surrounding his relationship with a woman who is not his wife.

He had been sworn in as head of the CIA in September 2011.

Silly goose. Once they've left the Union, they can more purely deny climate change, wiping all mention of it from textbooks, television, newspapers. Such pure denial, coupled with the fact that the Christian soul of their great state will no longer be tainted by association with states that allow gay marriage, will bring rain in due season and perfect measure.

Every time one of these douchebags starts opening his pie hole about secession, I want to slap him upside the head with a history book. Hard.

No, we can't secede at will. No, we can't split into multiple states by our own choice. Yes, there are a lot of Texas cliches about this place being a whole other country, but at the end of the day, we're just as tied to the American government as the other 49 states.

Just try to keep the drug cartels out once the Border Patrol closes up shop and builds new gates and bridges on the Red River instead of the Rio Grande. And just watch Houston collapse on itself once NASA and all the government contractors in the city that depend on them leave. Also, every bank account in this state would be worthless, since they're filled with American money, not Texan.

Fucking morons. They act like seceding would be easy or some shit. They need to STFU and stop making the rest of us look bad.

Honestly I think they really needed to work harder to make Romney more likable rather than worrying about drumming more Obama hate. They already had that.

That would've been a Herculean task. Romney simply wasn't likeable. He is a nasty and small man with absolutely no personality. His anger simmered just barely below the surface if he was asked any question he didn't want to respond to, he disparaged almost half of the population, he lied as easily as he breathed. There was nothing likeable about Romney, and that included his nasty wife and even nastier kids. The whole lot of them were just...icky.
