In Defense of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan

By Bill Maher

I'll say this on their behalf: all of those tax loopholes that they pretend they want to close in order to make their tax plan work -- but won't name before the election, and probably won't close anyway after the election, assuming they won -- probably should be closed. They're all things most economists agree are inefficiencies that distort the market and we’d be better off without them.

Here's the thing: you can rarely get rid of any benefit the government gives to its citizens. Whether it's farm subsidies or home mortgage deductions or Medicare prescription drug benefits that aren't paid for or defense contracts, once they're given, they're almost never rescinded. And they add up.

But at least they're talking about closing them (while not talking about closing them). It's slightly more than the Democrats do.

There. I said something nice about Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.

You should Zing Jack Welch's comment on Employment numbers

“Unbelievable jobs numbers..these Chicago guys will do anything..can’t debate so change numbers,”

Talk about the Chef who cooked the GE books. Welch should not throw stones in his Glass house.

One of Romney's comments I find the most offensive is:

"And-- and if the Hispanic voting bloc-- be-- becomes as committed to the Democrats as the African American voting bloc has in-- in the past, why we're-- we're in trouble as a party and, I think, as a nation."

By using the word "nation" he illustrates what a racist he is, and how little he regards African Americans & Hispanics.

Do you think Romney's magic underwear is the cause of his Shape Shifting? A well-known phenomenon in the mythical world.

Maher's nasty comments show how perverted he is. And to think that our brave men died to protect this guy, so that he could say such demented things to the public on television. Anybody can say stupid things. It takes intelligence to be a good comedian. Maher you are a slacker of the worst kind. Even my dog wouldn't want to have sex with you.

Mitt Romney is running for president because conservatives owe the Church of LDS for prop 8, not to mention all of the other conservative causes (and presidents) they've funded. This was all an elaborate scam- throw a bunch of other clowns out as options (Bachmann, Caine, etc.) and then say, "Well, looks like Romney's our only choice."

President Obama is offering a federal mortgage modification plan designed to keep homeowners out of foreclosure with a 2% rate and lower payments.
