Blame Bites (10/30/2012)

MoveOn ad features old lady threatening to “burn this mother f***er down” if Romney wins | The Right Scoop

“The classy left continues to outdo themselves with ads, this time one from MoveOn with old ladies threatening to c***punch Romney and ‘burn this mother f***er down’ if Romney wins.”

Good Grief! First the “tolerant” left tries to scare us with grandma being thrown off a cliff, now they’re trying to scare us with grandma threatening violence. If Republicans had made this ad, the liberal media would be accusing them of trying to stir up violence. But it’s okay if Democrats do it? (Let me guess: false equivalency?)

Buckeyes for Obama: 'Free Food. Come Together. Make History.' | Big Government

"It’s happened again. A student organization that is part of the Barack Obama campaign is apparently breaking the law by trying to get other students to vote for Barack Obama by offering free pizza for votes – this time in Ohio."

Look, I can understand get-out-to-vote efforts held by non-partisan organizations, but considering how this was orchestrated by moonbats from Obama’s campaign—yeah, somehow I don’t think they’re encouraging people to vote for just anyone.

What do you call it again when you promise people free stuff for their vote? Oh yeah. Bribery!

When it comes to housing prices, unemployment, bank regulation, city services, energy prices, and foreign relations, the short answer is no. The long answer? HELL NO!

Romney Leads Obama 11 to 8 in Swing State Newspaper Endorsements | NewsBusters

And in other news, nobody reads newspapers anymore.

Alex Jones thinks Hurricane Sandy is an inside job. Somehow I'm not surprised by this.

Higher Taxes on the Rich Are a Precursor to Higher Taxes on the Rest of Us | Cato @ Liberty

Daniel J. Mitchell highlights these instances where the political establishment demands raising taxes on the middle class:
• The New York Times endorsed higher taxes on the middle class in 2010.
• The then-House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer also gave a green light that year to higher taxes on the middle class.
• Earlier this year, MIT professor and former IMF official Simon Johnson argued that the middle class should pay more tax.
• The Washington Post also called for higher taxes on the middle class this year, as did Vice President Joe Biden’s former economist.
Both Romney and Obama claim to support the middle class yet desire to raise their taxes. This is like a father beating their young child within an inch of their life and then patting them on the head and telling them with a kiss that they love them.

Any politician who suggests raising taxes does not care about you. At all!

And don’t assume they will only raise taxes on the rich. A government big enough to tax the rich is big enough to raise taxes on everyone else. Who else are they going to go once they bleed the rich dry?
