Very significant.

Romney’s Bain Capital owned overseas outsourcing specialists that helped companies export jobs for profit

GOPocrisy, thy name is Mitt Romney

Mitt Romney has been talking a lot on the campaign trail about stemming the tide of jobs moving overseas to places like China. As it turns out, his company Bain Capital, the one he says gives him the job creating experience that he needs to be the President of the United States, owned companies that were specialists in outsourcing jobs overseas and helped other companies to do so more efficiently and profitably.

Romney’s “Every Town Counts” tour hits Michigan, apparently only all-male, all-white towns count

Every white town counts


Mitt Romney finished up his recent 5-day bus tour in Michigan this week with stops in Frankenmuth, Dewitt and Holland. For those of you who aren’t from Michigan, you’re forgiven if you’ve never heard of those places.

The tour is called the “Every Town Counts” tour and had stops in 13 towns. The Nation magazine calls it the “Some Towns Just Don’t Count” tour and CBS calls it the “Every (Wealthy) Town Counts” tour.

Romney was met by a monstrous crowd of a about 400 mostly white, mostly male supporters. He was also met by a significant number of protesters, including MoveOn.org’s “No Millionaire Left Behind Romney Mobile”.

Photos and video after the jump.

Struggling in America? Try applying to be Ann Romney’s horse. It’s doing better than you. – UPDATED: Maybe not.

Romney campaign urges Florida governor to quit bragging about his state’s recovery

Quit SAYING that! People will think things are getting better.

The Romney campaign wants Florida Governor Rick Scott to quit talking about how great the economy is in Florida right now. Knowing that an improved economic picture kills Romney’s only talking point in this election, they simply can NOT have that kind of talk.

18 Reasons the Affordable Care Act Was the Greatest Achievement for the Middle Class Since Medicare

My mother would be very proud

My mother would be very proud

Well this doesn’t happen every day

My mother was an early feminist in the late 70s/early 80s. She marched on Washington, D.C. for the Equal Rights Amendment. My first “activism” action was to join her and a handful of other ladies on a road trip for a similar march in Chicago where Bella Abzug and Gloria Steinem and many other leading feminists spoke.

And we always had Ms. magazine hanging around. When I was around ten years old, I read Ms. magazine all the time. It had a significant impact on my perceptions about women and how they are viewed and treated in society.

Yesterday, a post we put up was linked and photos we took were posted at Ms. magazine’s website in a piece titled “The War on Women, Michigan Front”.

She would have been very proud of that.

But there’s something she would have been even MORE proud of, I think.
