Sandusky Story Continues
The saga of the former Penn State assistant football coach turned convicted pedophile rapist continues. Tuesday we found out that Penn State University has been sent a warning letter threatening its accreditation, which if removed would do even more damage to the school than NCAA penalties on the football program did. Now comes this story from a witness who told federal authorities Sandusky and another pedophile raped boys on a private plane. Many have speculated that Sandusky was part of a pedophile ring, and a story like this (if true) certainly adds credence to that theory.
Romney Unloads on Obama
So what happens when the carefully orchestrated and tightly scripted Mitt Romney tell his incestuous brigade of loser etch-a-sketch consultants and strategists to take a hike, and he writes his own speech? You get the most fiery rhetoric yet from the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. Speaking in the key battleground state of Ohio, Romney unloaded on Obama and his foolish race-baiting vice president, accusing Obama-Biden of running a “campaign of division and anger and hate.” But that’s not all. In remarks sure to have his incestuous loser brigade of etch-a-sketch consultants and strategists sweating bullets, Romney went even further saying the “campaign and his surrogates have made wild and reckless accusations that disgrace the office of the presidency. The White House sinks a little bit lower. This is what an angry and desperate presidency looks like. So, Mr. President, take your campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago.” Careful, Mitt…you’re almost starting to sound like you actually do want to win this thing. While you’re at it, give your incestuous loser brigade of etch-a-sketch consultants and strategists a permanent timeout, and you just might.
Obama More Pro-Life than Romney?
According to a column in the National Catholic Reporter, the answer to that question is yes. Of course, what do you expect from a column that includes this line: “I don’t know anyone who is pro-abortion. Think about what that word means. It means you favor women becoming pregnant so you can help them abort their child and maybe profit from it.” Apparently this “expert” has never heard of Planned Parenthood.
