Speaker “Loses” Amendment Vote

Yes, as many postesr have pointed out, it’s a con game. Even a feeble politician like Boehner knows how to set up a defeat and turn it into a victory.

The Speaker lost the vote on the balanced budget amendment. But he “fought” for it and by gosh those tax and spend Democrats voted down the bill and all the Speaker’s hard work. Yes, the whole affair was political theater. Here’s how it works.  Set up a defeat and blame the opposition.

Get it Obama. That’s how politics works in Follyland. Turn a defeat into victory but you set up the defeat in advance.

Oh, well. Obama and the Dems will never learn.

Mitt Romney, former governor of Massachusetts and current GOP candidate for president, received the Putzie today for his statement “I’m not looking to put money into people’s pockets.”

The statement was superfluous because everyone knew that anyway. But what Romney really received the award for – and it’s something most people don’t know yet – is that Romney was once the CEO of a company that excelled at taking money out of people’s pockets.

The firm the Mittster once headed up practiced a mean scam on working people called the leveraged buyout. The practice involved buying a company, often profitable, and firing loyal, hardworking employees, not only to get rid of higher paid workers, but reducing benefits and destroying pensions. The firm than resold the ravaged company for a hefty profit, nice bonuses for Romney and his big time buddies and joyful investor returns.  Yes, everyday was Thanksgiving day for these con men.

With Romney now trailing Newt Gingrich in some polls for the Republican nomination, a campaign spokesman lauded the Committee’s decision to award the prize to their candidate.

Way to go, Mittster. 

Winners of The Most Valuable Putz Award receive a certificate acknowledging the prize as well as a forged autographed copy of a photo of Don Alberto Vito Nobella, the originator of the prize.

These exceptional individuals also receive a statuette named the Pubar engraved with the words “putzed up beyond all reason.” Known as the Putzie the statuette is made of rusted metal stolen from an auto junk yard. The Putzie is given while supplies last and unfortunately for the current winner supplies just ran out.
