Mitt Romney is right. There are a lot among that 47% who are a lost cause. We often exchange emails with one of them. It’s an exercise only in seeing firsthand just how many brain cells die when you can’t stop drinking Kool-Aid. Here is our most recent exchange.
From the progressive:
Thanks for sharing this so I can see what crap they are peddling now (actually this goes back a couple of years). I know you are too smart to fall for this and suppose you actually opened the Snopes link to see it is false. Typical. So if people would bother to read what Snopes says about this: # of employees in White House has DECREASED under Obama and cost accordingly. Those who got raises actually go new job assignments with different. new duties.
This is what the idiots out there do: lie, lie, lie….and people are stupid enough to believe the lies.
No matter; Romney is toast unless the GOP cheats to win (which they are trying hard to do w/all the voter suppression laws. Disgusting. Play and Win or Lose Fair and Square if you think you have the better political platform for our nation. They are such liars and losers. They ruined the economy and now expect us to put them back in the driver’s seat!
