Romney/Ryanism in Tampa


A consumate evil duo.

by Stephen Lendman

Tampa may never be the same. Republicans left it pockmarked. At least they're gone. Residents welcomed their departure. Three days of pre-scripted hokum were featured. Romney/Ryan speeches featured revisionist history. Democrats get their turn next week.

Campaigning is in high gear. According to Bloomberg , "you'd need six months to watch every presidential campaign ad." As of August 22, 526,633 (30 or 60 second) spots were run.

By election day November 6, perhaps they'll top a million. And that's only for president. All House and 33 Senate seats are up for grabs. So are numerous others at state and local levels. They range from gubernatorial to local school boards.

A war of words hammers US voters nonstop. Relief won't come until post-election. America's campaign season never ends. Preparations begin immediately for the next cycle. Big money plans it that way. Candidates and officeholders either go along or find another line of work. Voters get betrayed every time.

Tampa was Exhibit A. Romney/Ryan represent socially destructive interests. Obama's the same. Voters are stuck between fire and brimstone.

America's political process is too dysfunctional and corrupted to fix. People should either vote independent or stay home. Both major parties are two sides of the same coin. Not a dime's worth of difference that matters separates them.

They represent money power and imperial lawlessness. People needs are spurned. Bipartisan complicity plans destroying them entirely. Social America is on the chopping block for elimination. Political Washington's vision is dark age harshness.

Obama/Biden/Romney/Ryan represent the worst of all possible worlds. Obama's con man days began in Illinois. Before entering politics, Romney parlayed grand theft into super wealth. 

As Bain Capital head, he profiteered by leveraged buyouts, asset-stripping companies, and leaving thousands of workers high and dry. As president, he'll do for America what he did to one plundered company after another.

On August 29, Matt Taibbi headlined his Rolling Stone article "Greed and Debt: The True Story of Mitt Romney and Bain Capital."

He calls him the flip side of Che or Trotsky. He's a human wrecking machine. He's right out of predatory capitalism's central casting. He's a visionary for everything harming people.

His campaign reflects "a shimmering pearl of perfect political hypocrisy." He's kept it hidden out of sight. Ryan's his alter ego. He's "a self-righteous anal, thin-lipped, Whitest Kids U Know penny pincher who'd be honored to tell Oliver Twist" the soup bowl is empty, go hungry.
