Coal Miners ABSOLUTELY THRILLED to Appear in Romney TV Ad

A new TV commercial for Mitt Romney is on the air. It features coal miners and Himself, claiming that President Obama is killing the coal industry, presumably with all those pesky regulations.

Someone in the media thought to ask the mine owner, Murray Energy, if the miners were all there voluntarily.

“Attendance at the Romney event was mandatory,” said Rob Moore, the company’s Chief Financial Officer, “but no one was forced to attend.”

OK … good. Glad we cleared that up.

A Fifty Year Summary of the U.S. Economy

Gee ... And all this time I thought the Republicans were supposed to be the ones with all the answers when it comes to prosperity, the economy, the deficit, etc ...

Just the Latest Outrage from the GOP. More to Come, of Course.

Labor Day is, apparently, no longer observed in order to recognize and honor working men and women ... the people who build the cars and dig the holes and do the paperwork and fetch the coffee for the boss ... in other words, the people who labor.

Labor Day -- at least according to that arrogant twit, Eric Cantor -- is now being celebrated to honor the entrepreneurs who hire the people who build the cars and dig the holes.

There seems to be no limit to the arrogance of the Republican leadership.
