HAVE A GREAT EVENING!
Rob Engstrom, head of the US Chamber of Commerce, the largest lobbying organization in the country, was in Montana to endorse their Rubber Stamp candidate Denny Rehberg. This outfit is pouring $100,000,000 into this years nationwide election. They are intent on ousting moderate members of Congress such as our Senator Jon Tester.
You would think with a name like ‘Chamber of Commerce’ that they would try to represent all businesses. However, that is not the case. Small businesses, that hire 80% of our work force, are strangely neglected in their extreme right-wing agenda.
Keep coming back!!
I was personally insulted when Ann Romney called us, “You people” when she announced that she (and the husband with whom she enjoys complex financial schemes which assures eternal wealth regardless of the cost), would not be issuing further tax returns. How many of us gets to claim $77,000 as a tax deduction for the upkeep of a prize-winning dressage horse which appeared in the recent Olympics? [Were they reading this, the Romney’s would exclaim, “Another leftist attack!”, instead of realizing that their elite status in our society carries a responsibility to be above suspicion of wrong-doing. Mitt Romney‘s father, himself, released 12 years of tax returns. Mitt 1 full return. The Romneys, like the “divine right” kings of olde, boldly tell the people (the media) that they will not answer questions which pertain to the human condition and they will only concentrate on issues about money and the accumulation of wealth. This is the Romney definition of “success.” In these next 50+ days the media must not let them get away with this arrogance! They must not fail us. They must press the difficult questions that the Romneys are afraid to answer. No one has re-written the rules for Presidential campaigns. Campaigns are not easy. Just like making money!
Adopt this Mantra:
VOTE A STRAIGHT
Seriously, this is no time to sit on the sidelines!
