Samuel L. Jackson and the Author of “Go The F—K To Sleep” Present …

Extremely NSFW:  There’s not really much to say about this video, other than that we definitely recommend wearing headphones if you plan to watch this in the workplace. This might be the most entertaining political advertisement ever released.

We do provide care for people who don’t have insurance. If someone has a heart attack, they don’t sit in their apartment and die. We pick them up in an ambulance, and take them to the hospital, and give them care. And different states have different ways of providing for that care.
Mitt Romney • Reversing course on one of the biggest reasons he has previously cited for for signing off on “Romneycare” while during his time as governor of Massachusetts. Romney has pointed to the fiscal responsibility of eliminating the “just go to the ER” mentality, on numerous occasions, when questioned about his choice to sign off on the now semi-controversial measure. He even told Glenn Beck that such a system was tantamount to socialism, though his opinions on that matter have clearly changed. Again. source

Obama’s new ad hits on Romney’s “47 percent” gaffe, tax returns: This battleground-state ad, only running in Ohio, serves up the kind of criticism that a comment like Mitt’s makes obvious: “Doesn’t the President have to worry about everyone?” Romney’s tax returns also take a hit. (ht USA Today)

I’ve got a very effective campaign. It’s doing a very good job. But not everything I say is elegant. And — and I want to make it very clear, I want to help 100% of the American people.
Mitt Romney • Speaking to Scott Pelley on “60 Minutes” regarding his campaign. Regarding whether his campaign needs a turnaround, he disagrees. “Well, it doesn’t need a turnaround,” he explained. “We’ve got a campaign which is tied with an incumbent president to [sic] the United States.” Romney says that he’s polling within the margin of error. While Obama is leading on the spread, according to RealClearPolitics, the two candidates are tied in two recent polls.

I don’t think there’s any way on the face of the Earth Mitt Romney wins the presidential…Has anybody ever thought Mitt Romney would be president of the United States? Come on.
Nancy Pelosi, in an interview with reporters. She added that Romney “wanted to be president of the United States, but he’s never had any call to service, any aspirations. He just wanted to be president.” Earlier this month, Pelosi made similar comments.

On alternative energy, Mitt Romney just endorsed Hitler’s method of liquifying coal. Not a joke.

“Liquified coal. Gosh, Hitler during the second World War…”

Things no politician should ever say: Oh, that Hitler, he had such great ideas!

Several minutes missing from Romney video; conservatives cry foul

1 or 2 minutes are missing from the leaked Romney video, according the journalist who obtained it. Mother Jones’ David Corn says his source told him that the recording device “inadvertently shut down or timed-out” during Romney’s speech, and had to be turned back on. "[A]t most, one to two minutes were missed,” Corn told Politico. In response, the conservative activists at Breitbart.com denounced the video’s legitimacy, saying that “there is new reason to suspect manipulation” on the part of Mother Jones when “a large portion of video” is missing.  Mother Jones released a total of 67 minutes of video from the event, so the missing footage would amount to roughly 3% of the complete product.

We checked into Mitt Romney’s assertion that 47% of Americans don’t pay taxes and are “dependent on government.” 

While it’s true that about 46% of Americans don’t pay federal income taxes, only 18% don’t chip in something in the form of payroll taxes. 

Here’s a detailed breakdown of who pays taxes, who doesn’t and why

In which a light burns bright on the “47 percent” claims. (Side note: Nate Silver isn’t sure the controversy will actually hurt Romney in the polls. “The news media often jumps the gun in declaring events to be ‘game changers’ when they later prove to little effect on the numbers,” he writes.)
