Theocracy!

The governor of MASS is at it again.

My friends, meet Mitt Romney, R-Crazyland

Romney warns of theocracy danger

"In remarks in N.C., says US under attack"

News to me. Things are fairly quiet here in SoCal.
RALEIGH, N.C. -- Venturing into foreign policy, Governor Mitt Romney yesterday told a largely REPUBLICAN AUDIENCE that Islamic terrorists "want to bring down our government" and "want to put in place a huge theocracy."

"We're under attack, as you know, MILITARILY," Romney told about 150 people gathered at an exclusive Raleigh country club.

"They're not just intent on blowing up a little bomb here and there at a shopping mall, awful as that would be. They want to bring down our government, bring down our entire economy. They want to put in place a huge theocracy."
Once again, I'll make this point: BEYOND IMPOSSIBLE.

A KAJILLION crazed evildoers would have to sneak up on -- and sack -- every major U.S. city (and all the little ones) without, uh, getting caught.

"Totally doable, commie. Totally doable."

The Klingons could do it, but not the "evildoers."

But just for the sake of this ridiculous argument, let's say it "did" happen.

Do you think - for one second - that CokeIBMMcDonaldsFord (et al) would EVER let us live under anything less than a "free market economy?"
"Thank heavens we have a president of the United States who recognizes this for what it is and has declared war on it, and thank heavens we have a military that consists of the strongest and bravest and most able men and women in the world," Romney said.

Asked later by a Globe reporter about his remarks, Romney said he was referring to Islamic terrorists.

"Obviously, this is an extreme fundamentalist perspective," he responded. "It's certainly not shared by the people of Islam generally, but is shared by some radical few."

Then he was asked if he felt Islamic terrorists want to take over the United States. Romney said: "No. No. No."
You can't have it both ways, Mitt.
"I don't have any foreign intelligence that's any different than what you read in the various journals and so forth," the governor said.
Then you're just talking out of your ass.
"Among the various reports I've read -- and I think President Bush has described -- that there are some who wish to bring down the Western-leaning governments and put in a more fundamentalist, religious leadership.

But that's not something I'm something I'm expert in."
He is, however, an expert in UNION-BUSTING.
In Raleigh, Romney took credit for trimming what he said was Massachusetts' $3 billion budget deficit and turning it into a $472 million surplus a year later and a $1.2 billion surplus in the last fiscal year.

He said he trimmed the bureaucracy by consolidating state agencies such as the Health and Human Services Department that had 16 agencies when he arrived and now has four.

HE ADDED THAT HE HAS CUT SALARY INCREASES FOR STATE WORKERS -- STRESSING THAT MOST OF THEM ARE UNIONIZED -- to 2 percent.
What a guy.

The White House has put Laura to work again:

Laura Bush says sexism possible in Miers criticism

The Queen has spoken!
COVINGTON, Louisiana (Reuters) - First lady Laura Bush joined her husband in defending his nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday and said it was possible some critics were being sexist in their opposition to Harriet Miers.
Wait.

Did they use Pickles to go after the more vocal members of their own party?!
A week after President George W. Bush nominated Miers for a lifetime appointment to the highest U.S. court, he remained on the defensive against conservative critics within his own Republican Party.

They say Bush missed a chance to pick an experienced judge with clear-cut conservative credentials who would firmly move the court to the right on such social issues as abortion, gay rights and church-state separation.
"They" also said --

"I'm disappointed, depressed and demoralized." (William Kristol)

"Harriet Miers isn't qualified to play a Supreme Court justice on "The West Wing," let alone to be a real one." (Ann Coulter)

"I think...[Bush] has probably risked his legacy. But more important, he has risked what some of us have fought for 40 years since I was with Richard Nixon." (Pat Buchanan)

"I'm not comfortable with the nomination, so we'll just have to work through the process in due time." (Trent Lott)

"It seems to me from the outset that this is a pick that was made from weakness." (Rush Limbaugh)

I like the strategy, though. Using the First Lady to swing back at the, uh, "critics."

But, come on, Rush Limabugh...sexist? Puh-leaze. That man is a true champion of women's rights.
"Feminism was established to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream."

"A feminazi is a woman to whom the most important thing in life is seeing to it that as many abortions as possible are performed."

Let me leave you with a thought that honestly summarizes my sentiments: I love the women’s movement. Especially when I am walking behind it."
And that...is talent on loan from God.

Sources: Tip on N.Y. subway threat a hoax

Gee. You're kidding.
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Information that led to heightened security for the New York City transit system was a hoax, government sources said Tuesday.

The sources said an informant in Iraq who provided the tip had told investigators there was a terrorist plot involving New York's subway system.

That informant admitted he gave false information, the sources said.

On Monday, New York police said they would reduce the increased security measures put in place last week on the city's subways.
More later...
