China will increase its buying of oil and gas in yuan -- and not petrodollars. Russia under Putin 2.0 will be in the ascendancy not only in Central Asia, but also in Europe. No USS Romney intimidation and bombing would be able to alter this very probably course of history. It -- and the deafening right-wing echo chambers -- will be left wallowing in Islamophobia and blaming everything on the "Soviets" and "communist China."
It's Karl Rove or bust
Back to the 47%: USS Romney's plutocratic base will always believe that he was "on message" -- no matter what happens; they despise most Americans anyway. But when one examines a smattering of US polls, the inevitable conclusion is that only 30% or so of voters believe in the interwoven right-wing myths concerning Obama's unelectability.
So it's down to "arithmetic" -- as The Almighty Bubba (former president Bill Clinton) indelibly pressed at his Charlotte apotheosis. Intrade's percentage chance of a Obama win in November is now at 67.9% -- and rising. Nate Silver, arguably America's most credible pollster, is currently aiming at 74.8%.
The bottom line: the USS Romney is a post-modern Titanic. Unless Karl "turd blossom" Rove can come up with the definitive October surprise. So CEO Mitt had better start looking for alternative career opportunities.
Qatar's Al Noor Holdings will bankroll a $450 million Prophet Muhammad movie trilogy to erase the memory of that protested-to-death YouTube video. Instead of a shady Egyptian Copt and former porno flick director, the producer will be Barry Osborne of Matrix fame. And the prime ideological consultant is Al-Jazeera star Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the ideological leader of the MB, who will guarantee full respect of sharia law -- which includes the non-representation of the Prophet (holograms, anyone?).
Perhaps an unemployed Mitt should delocalize and consider lobbying the emir of Qatar for a casting call.
