Political Rover!!!Political Rover!!!

Thursday, August 9, 2012

Today’s mental workout for Political Thursdays ventures out on a rover fact-finding mission. It’s wonderful indeed that we are spending millions looking for signs of life on Mars, if we discover something, how will the information be spun. Could there be a miraculous break-through in the making? The important question is whether there’s signs of life on planet Earth, well we mean in Congress. Your guess is as good as mine! In a million years, the next gatekeepers of life in another galaxy will be sending probes to Earth to see if there was ever life on this planet. By then the only living proof we’ll have will be Donald Trump's hair piece which will still be going strong. What we really need, is a rover mission inside the back rooms of Congress, the places where cameras are left out. The kind of places secret handshakes and deals are made, well we would like to think so, but they may be even too lazy for those. Surely the American people deserve to know what transpires in their capital of politics, can anyone deny more transparency in congress is needed. It would make them much more accountable, it’s like a free-for-all in Congress at the moment, you got members alluding to inside threats of Muslim conspiracy, sounds just like the playbook of the Communist black list of the 50s, same tactics, different enemy.

While we are it, why not send a political rover into the White House too. Could the Obama team be behind those Harry Reid accusations that Romney hasn’t paid taxes for 10 years. We also hear rumors that thousands of Govt pink slips may be going out right before the election date, but the White House is trying to find a way to circumvent the notice periods. More shockingly, could the Obama political machine be behind those utterly disgraceful ads accusing Romney of killing a woman who died of Cancer after losing her medical coverage. Whatever the real story is though…..surely such ads have to be clearly out of bounds. What are we coming to as a country that such ads could be run by a SuperPAC acting rogue or otherwise on behalf of a sitting president. Whoever is really behind such ads, we could send a rover inside their mind and still not come up with any answers for such behavior, not sure one exists. How can anyone connect all those dots and expect people to believe that Romney’s actions making business decisions would directly lead to loss of health insurance resulting in death. Wow indeed! Just when you think you’ve seen it all, heard it all, then more BS happens.

Last, but never least, in our eyes anyway is the Romney campaign. Would love the rover to get in there and find out what the heck is going on with these tax returns. The matter is threatening to turn his whole campaign into a circus, we might find Jimmy Hoffa before we discover what’s in these taxes. What could be so bad as to risk his all campaign been defined by this issue. It certainly doesn’t seem to be fading anytime soon. Nothing, but more speculation piles up every day. It’s almost inconceivable to think Romney could have dodged his taxes for a decade, surely that has to be gross exaggeration. Whatever the reason is, there must be something fairly damaging there. Speaking of damage, how about the Romney spokesperson, Andrea Saul’s mis-statement, we can only assume that wasn’t part of the playbook. They took an unbelievable gift handed down by the Obama SuperPAC and found a way to let it blow up in their face. It’s almost as if Obama does have an angel upstairs or, one thing is for sure, he has plenty of angels on the Romney camp. To be honest with you this assignment may be a bridge too far for the rover, it would certainly have its work cut out on these political missions, the Mars mission would be the piece of cake.
