The Speech

Barry, My Liege :

I have been thinking about the speech we would like you to give at the next campaign appearance. Of course, some of this speech MAY be a little harsh.

It's about taking it directly to Mitt Romney.

The speech :

'Howdy folks.

How y'all doin tonight.

You're in for a treat today, because I am going to let my hair down - figuratively speaking - just a little, and tell it like it is.

That's right, folks, this is the rarest of nights.

You are gonna get the truth.

Let's start with the claim that I am a Muslim and was not born in the United States and am therefore unqualified to be President.

That is just the biggest piece of crap I have ever heard in my life. I have refuted it time and again but it keeps coming back, sort of like black mold in the bathroom.

Seems that there are a lotta folks who want to believe something bad about me regardless of facts. So, I suppose that it will never go away.

My guess is that there are a lot of folks who just don't like black people. When they can't find anything wrong with a person they don't like, they just go ahead and make up something.

I'd like to assume they are well intentioned, but I can't do that. They are just bigots, plain and simple.

So here's the deal:

I AM BLACK.

I AM PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

GET OVER IT.

For God's sake, please get over it so we can work together on our real problems.

Here's another thing about bigots : thanks to George W. Bush, I have some far reaching powers as President. These are powers I did not create and don't really want, but I have them.

For example, I can put a terrorist on a list and kill him with a drone or a night raid with Navy Seals just on my say so.

I am a patient man, but for Christ's sake, maybe it is time to put some of these dingbats on the terror list.

About this Muslim business, that probably came from the fact that my middle name is Hussein. I am proud of that name. It reminds me of my father. He was a Muslim, I am not.

I am a Protestant and go to church with my family regularly. You remember that flapdoodle over Reverend Wright and his motor mouth. Obviously not one of my better moments, but HE IS A PROTESTANT MINISTER, not a Muslim. Get a grip.

I have lived in countries where the predominant religion is Islam and I attended a Muslim school as a child. It was a good school and they did not require that I swear allegiance to Allah to attend.

How many folks do you know with Irish names that are not remotely Irish? Probably a lot. It's one of the fun things in our country to watch an NFL football game and try to guess how a 300 pound black lineman from Detroit got the name Sean McDougal. By the way, that is a totally made up name - I mean no offense to any real Sean McDougals out there.

The point is this : just because I have a Muslim sounding name does NOT make me a Muslim any more than an Irish name makes a black man Irish.

Of course you all know that I really am Irish on my mother's side. This is America. We are PROUD of that.

As far as citizenship and religion go, take a look at Romney's background. Romney's family was polygamous; his father had three wives and his grandfather even more. The family fled to Mexico because they could not practice their religion in the USA. It is possible that Mitt Romney entered the country illegally and is an illegal alien.

Check THAT out and get back to me.

Let's take a look at the question of jobs.

Romney says he is a better candidate because he understands how to create jobs better than I do.

The only thing correct about that statement is the idea that job creation is important. The rest is pure BS.

Under my administration the country has created more than 3.3 million jobs since I took office. We need more, but, hey, 3.3 million new jobs ain't exactly petunias.

So, I know how to create jobs. My understanding of economics and job creation is way better than Mitt's. I'll match him line by line any day of the week.

What does Mitt Know? He knows how to take over companies and cut jobs or outsource them so he can sell the company for a profit. He makes a lot of money that way while a lot of hard working Americans who work in those companies lose jobs, savings, pride and healthcare.

It is legal under our system, but it aint right. It just is not right for America.

What is Mitt's plan for the economy and job creation? Well, according to his repeated statements, Mitt's plan is to do exactly what George W. Bush did.

That means he will reduce taxes on rich people, raise taxes on poor and middle class people, reduce or do away with regulation, encourage out sourcing of American jobs, reduce or eliminate Social Security and Medicare and basically do the opposite of what I have done.

All that means that we will get the same economic results as we did under Bush: namely, the worst financial crisis since the 1930's and a net job LOSS of 1.8 million jobs in eight years. [Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jobs_created_during_U.S._presidential_terms]

That's right, Mitt wants to KILL 2 MILLION jobs and create another recession.

My only question is this - why would any sane person vote for him?

Take the Tea Party, they seem like a group of sincere folks who want to help the country. But, for some reason, they want to adopt economic policies that will directly hurt them by taking away their Social Security, their Medicare and their jobs.

It's a puzzlement.

So, listen up Tea Party, the election is about the ECONOMY. It is NOT about gay marriage, gun rights or any other distraction.

The rich oligarchs who fund your movement want you to be distracted by side issues so they can lower their taxes and raid your social security.

They are running a shell game.

You gotta keep your eye on the prize folks, or the oligarchs are gonna take away your children's future.

Here's another thing about Mitt : He is a liar. Plain and simple, he lies. He is the worst type of politician. He will say anything to get elected and then do whetever he wants after winning the election. We have seen this with some Republican governors who ran on one platform, then pretty much did the opposite when they were elected.

Governor Walker in Wisconsin ran on a fiscally conservative platform. Then after he was elected, he reduced taxes on corporations thereby lowering tax revenues for the state. Then he claimed a budget crisis since revenues had declined. His solution was to cut public employee pensions and take away collective bargaining for public employees.

Listen up Tea Party, this is what Mitt will do to you. He will cut taxes on rich folks like himself, claim a budget crisis and demand that we eliminate or reduce Social Security and Medicare to balance the budget

It is just plain old greed folks; plain old greed.

And another thing, what is up with the 'retroactive retirement' from Bain? That's double talk, plain and simple.

Mitt was running Bain during the time the company outsourced jobs. Lying does not make it so, Mitt. You gotta get your facts right.

If you want my job, and it sure seems like you do, you have to be better than I am. And, Mitt, you are not looking so good right now.

Americans can smell a con job, and we are smelling one right now.

Well that's all for now. Thanks for listening folks.

Good night and may God bless America.'

Your faithful servant,

    Good speech Mike. I just wish that everything was not such a mess. Every good piece of legislation stalled in the HR or blugeoned to death. The Prez has quite a bit on his plate and I don't know how its all going to turn out, but I know Romney has not fix a thing for this country. I want to see his tax returns for 1998 through 2002 I want to see how he handled all these different funds. I hear he has conveniently lost all the records for the 2002 Olympics which probably would have told us all the sweetheart deals he did with foreign countries and then asked the Federal Gov't to bail out the Olympics at the tune of 1.2 Bil dollars. So many question and it seems like we will never know the truth.

    These are just a couple of articles but the gist of this is that if his great grandparents left the US territory of utah because the US government were coming after the polygamists and they went to Mexico to form LDS church, there is some speculation that the great grand father gave up or renounced his US citizenship and left as a person who was going to be jailed for a felony by having so many wives. OK then they stay in Mexico at least two generations and most are still in Mexico accept for George Romney who apparently fled to the US after the turn of the century with his parents . This where the questions get fuzzy. Did George come back through legally? Did he have dual citizenship and if so where is it? What papers did the US government hand out to those who came back to America. He gets married to Mitt's supposed mother, Lenore. I don't know whether he was married more than once or if he had other wives down in Mexico, but they were apparently married on Mexican soil. George must have gone back down there for the wedding and why would Lenore get married in Mexico if she was a US citizen and they were in the US? They come back here George a Mexican citizen and wife. Was she considered American who knows, was she George's only wife who knows. They landed in Michigan and later on Mitt is born. You could say that he may be an anchor baby or perhaps he is eligible for dual citizenship since his father was mexican born. I have more stuff at home on this subject, but I am at the cabin so can't give you the web sites. The Romneys had many business partnerships in Mexico so it would be interesting to know more about that side of his life.http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/01/08/mitt-romney-mexican_n_1192694.html
