    Abramoff went to jail but Ralph Reed escaped although he secretly helped Abramoff defraud the Chocktaw indian tribe over casinos. Romney welcomed Reed's support. Bill Moyers is defenestrating Ralphie on PBS as I type.

    Former Republican, Mike Lofgren, says the GOP has turned into an "apocalyptic cult."

      I saw the interview yesterday and it seems that "The party is over" by Lofgren is a must read.

        Saw the interview this afternoon.
        Helps (in very small part) to understand how so many non-rich people are conned.

        Citizens United must be overturned.

      I have to admit I don't know any of the story that you seem to be privy to but if you are going complain about who Romney may associate with then you should be complaining about Obama associations as well. But I doubt you will.

        Read the Rolling Stone article.
        Makes Obama's "associations" with the likes of Bill Ayers and Rev. Wright look like sandbox time.

          Really an article in Rolling Stone is written in such a way that Obama's associations with complete scumbags seem tame? Amazing..

      These snakes aren't even staying in the grass. They're overrunning the streets.

    The latest Matt Taibbi investigative article on Romney and Bain.  Worth the read and sharing. http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/ne … l-20120829

      I feel like I'm living in the perfect storm of enlightment since yesterday. First, saw the interview with Lofgren on public television.
      Last night couldn't sleep and turned on "Koch Brothers Exposed" documentary. That took my consternation to a whole new level of "how can we sit back and let them do this?"

      And now this article. Which I certainly hope will get widespread media exposure and go uber viral on the social networks. It's MUST READ.
      Mitt the Archipelago Man.
      If only we can actually rally the "America the Exceptional" crowd to see how Romney has and will turn us into "America the Eviscerated."
      :rollyes:

      "...Romney, on the other hand, is a perfect representative of one side of the ominous cultural divide that will define the next generation, not just here in America but all over the world.
      That conflict will be between people who live somewhere, and people who live nowhere. It will be between people who consider themselves citizens of actual countries, to which they have patriotic allegiance, and people to whom nations are meaningless, who live in a stateless global archipelago of privilege – a collection of private schools, tax havens and gated residential communities with little or no connection to the outside world.

       RS has interesting demographics, not necessarily what many may assume.  Taibbi is widely read.

    The entire purpose of the business model that Romney helped pioneer is to move money into the archipelago from the places outside it, using massive amounts of taxpayer-subsidized debt to enrich a handful of billionaires.
