Romney says things under Obama’s second term have turned out even worse than he expected.

I on the other hand, am somewhat surprised things aren’t worse domestically than they are. I, a weak-ass pasty white nerd, for the first time in my life, bought a gun.  And will buy more.  Frankly, I wish I hadn’t waited so long, but some of you morons were out buying up ALL TEH WEAPONZ.

Things may not be absolutely terrible yet, but we’re getting there.  We’re getting there.

I guess Romney kind of has to say what he did, because it would be poor form to say, “I’ll be in my billion dollar bunker, waiting for the muthafuckin’ apocalypse. Peace out.”

Roll Call: “U.S. Chamber Backs Justin Amash Primary Opponent

I now have exactly zero patience for the establishment types who complain about folks putting up primary opposition against incumbents.

Screw the Chamber.

Fuck this shit:

(pic pilfered from NRO)

I know that somewhere, probably in DC, probably in the NRSC HQ, the motherfucker who did this is saying to himself, “yeah, but we won, and that’s what counts.”

To anybody who happens to know who did this, please expose said person so they never work again.

Ricochet?

Anybody subscribe to Ricochet?

Recommend it?

I’ve been listening to two of the free podcasts, and they’re pretty good.  Problem being I don’t really have time to read (let alone post) as much as I used to.

Riddle me this, morons…

How is it that repealing Obamacare could add to the deficit?

The original CBO score was a joke, and they had to lie, scrimp, and steal from other programs (like the student loan program) to make the bill as a whole score in their favor.

Since then, they’ve gone back on any number of cost saving and/or tax-raising measures, not the least of which are Tsar Obama’s royal proclamations of waivers and delays.

It was a lie to start, and they compounded the lie.

Fact Check: TRUE!

Huh?

Presenting this link with essentially no commentary other than to also point you towards Ace’s recent post on the Tea Party.

Arthur Brooks of AEI on “a conservative social justice agenda“.  (And the aforementioned Ace post.)

Looking for some freestyle commentary from the readership here.

Gorbachev tried to reform the USSR.  He ended up killing it.

It couldn’t be fixed.  Reforms only exposed its flaws.

So too, Obamacare.
