I have some ideas that I won’t share publicly.
The ads aired in Charleston, S.C., on a TV station run by Rita Littles Scott. “We did not know it was Stephen Colbert for a while,” she says of the power behind the ads. On the contrary, she says, the ads fit right in. And she says no one has called to complain about them. “In fact, we’ve not received any phone calls except from the media.”
what we’ve learned about Mitt Romney from his tax returns: 1) He pays a low rate in taxes, lower than many of us who derive our income from working 2) His work income is pocket change compared to the money he makes sitting on his ass paying other people to make money for him and 3) He makes more in a day doing nothing than your average American makes in a year of life being consumed by work.
A Facebook friend pointed out:
Now, this IS funny! I saw two article headlines side by side on msnbc this morning. The first one read, “Romney on State of the Union: Obama ‘adopted a lot of thoughts’ from my campaign”, and the one immediately following was, “Romney attacks Obama’s ‘fantasyland’, ‘detachment’ from reality”.
Srsly? I had to look it up, and he’s right!
Romney on State of the Union: Obama ‘adopted a lot of thoughts’ from my campaign [video, no transcript]

Obama detached from reality: Romney [video with transcript]
Mitt Romney hitting US President Barack Obama on his State of the Union address: "he was speaking in Fantasy Land again last night. He seemed so extraordinarily detached from reality."

BROWNSTEIN: Well, the share of whites [the Republican party will] need to win grows every four years, unless they can reduce this preponderant Democratic advantage among minorities. You really can feel the paralysis right now in the Republican Party, because on the one hand, almost every serious thinker in the party understands this is not a tenable, long-term strategy, to allow Democrats to keep winning 80 percent of the growing minority population. On the other hand, their existing coalition is resistant to many of the things you would want to reach out to that population. And they don’t know how to square the need for a future coalition against the priorities of the existing coalition.
The Republican party is like a lovesick teenager gazing longingly into the eyes of racism, saying “I don’t know how to quit you”.
