Archive for the ‘MUT’s Badass of the Week’ Category

Dear Readers: The elite media types are really beside themselves that Mitt Romney has managed to look more presidential in the course of a week then Obama has done during the entirety of his term. Now they are swooning because, while harassing the GOP candidate with queries about his supposed gaffes (which they made up, anyway), MUT’s BADASS OF THE WEEK TOLD THE HACKS TO: KISS MY ASS!!!

Gateway Pundit has an example of Gorda’s Bad-assery:

CNN: “Governor Romney just a few questions sir, you haven’t taken but three questions on this trip from the press!

Gorka: “Show some respect”

NYT: “We haven’t had another chance to ask a question…”

Gorka: “Kiss my ass. This is a Holy site for the Polish people. Show some respect.”

Acosta added: Moments later, Gorka told Jonathan Martin, a reporter for Politico, to “shove it.”

I would like to note that Romney, by answering even three questions during his trip, has answered 2 more serious queries than Obama has taken during this entire term — butt, I digress. Sadly, Gorka was compelled to apologize, which is a small deduction from the bad ass goodness; however, it did inspire some Tweet exchanges at the hashtag #KickMyAss.

If we are imposing the “New Civility” Standard (great synopsis by Beer with Demos), how about MSM icon Cokie Roberts apologizing to Romney for insinuating his trip to Poland was “racist” — she said essentially that Romney made this trip only to appeal to “white ethnic voters” (translation – Hillary Clinton supporters of Polish descent who tend to live on the evil-coal-utilizing rust belt).

Romeny’s World Tour was a huge success. In fact, as Lonely Conservative points out: The Only Thing That Didn’t Go Well About Romney’s Overseas Trip Was the Press Coverage
Mitt Romney looked Presidential; Ann Romney looked stunning and was as gracious and tasteful as any First Lady we could hope to have. To sum up – Romney Pegs Lech Walesa … Obama Lands Coveted Ahmadinejad Endorsement.

Furthermore, as I suspected, Romney was astute in properly assessing the quality of organization at the London Olympics, despite the attempts to make it a gaffe-fest. In fact, let’s take a look at Obama’s Top 10 UK gaffes for fun!!!

1. The Toast.

2. The iPod.

3. The Incompatible DVDs.

4. The Hug.

5. The Throwing of Churchill Out of the Oval Office.

6.  The Kitchen Meeting: “The Special Relationship” hits bottom as Obama makes the British Prime Minister chase him around America like a scorned school girl:  British officials made five attempts to secure official talks with the US President and even agreed to a policy change in an attempt to land a joint appearance between the two leaders, said diplomatic sources. But the White House rebuffed the offers and Mr. Brown, who had hoped to increase his popularity by appearing on his own with Mr. Obama, had to settle instead for a snatched conversation with the President in a New York kitchen.

7. The, uhm, Special Relationship?  The gratuitous words of a State Department official in May 2009 were particularly harmful. “There’s nothing special about Britain,” the official said. “You’re just the same as the other 190 countries in the world. You shouldn’t expect special

8. The, uhm Special Relationship? – Part Deux: President Obama had this to say: “We don’t have a stronger friend and stronger ally than Nicolas Sarkozy, and the French people.”

9. The Old Obama’s-Too-Tired-To-Treat-The-British-PM-With-Respect Ploy: Sources close to the White House say Mr. Obama and his staff have been “overwhelmed” by the economic meltdown and have voiced concerns that the new president is not getting enough rest. British officials, meanwhile, admit that the White House and US State Department staff were utterly bemused by complaints that the Prime Minister should have been granted full-blown press conference and a formal dinner, as has been customary. They concede that Obama aides seemed unfamiliar with the expectations that surround a major visit by a British prime minister.

10. The Compromising of British Intelligence.

Finally, Romney gave a comprehensive, supportive speech in Israel, hailed by many as superb oratory (and shockingly, no teleprompter was needed). So good, it pissed off the Palestinians and inspire the Iranian dictator’s endorsement of Obama. What do the Democrats do? Have Pelosi claim Jewish supporters of Romney are being exploited!

Speaking of Desperation…Bill Clinton is taking the slot normally reserved for the Vice-President during the Democratic National Convention. I have read Ed Klein’s book, the Amateur, derived from Clinton’s term for Obama. It seems Obama senses he’s not going to get the “White Votes” of the people his media minions just dissed without Clinton’s help. Just a reminder, for me, one of the best moments of the Obama presidency was the 2010 Christmas press conference, where Obama leaves and Bill Clinton shows how “real presidentin'” is done:

In it, Clinton tells Obama: PLEASE GO!

I hope he does so again! 🙂

I wasn’t planing on watching the DNC convention, but I will watch Clinton’s speech. It will be fascinating!

One last note: Mitt Romney’s team is vastly superior to McCain’s, in terms of new media. There is a special app develop for the i-phone/android that will let supporters instantly know the choice when that info is released. Meanwhile, SoCal Tax Revolt Coalition President Dawn Wildman has this to say in a San Diego Union Tribune round-up of opinions related to the GOP VP choice:

Dawn Wildman

SoCal Tax Revolt Coalition president, CA Tea Party Groups Coalition, Decline-to-state

My first inclination is to choose Mitch Daniels as a great VP pick but considering the strategy that seems to come with the territory I fear we will not get a hard-core economic realist. Without a person who will have the president’s back on the tough decisions I fear the status quo spending addiction will continue in Washington. If Romney does not pick a person with business acumen we will be looking at the same kind of economic policies that we currently have in Congress. We need our president and vice president to be true leaders in these tough economic times.

As always, history fans need to go over to Word Warrior’s history blog, for the NEXT INSTALLMENT of the AGE OF ARTHUR series!It features shield-maidens, so it should be good!

Finally, to cap off some Tea Party goodness, Professor Jacobson writes that Cruz served Chick-Fil-a at victory party!

Dear Readers:  When I created my homage to the real “Badass” site, little did I realize my second nominee would be a soft-spoken Mormon mother of 5.  How did this happen?

The set-up: A snarky liberal gadfly Hilary Rosen tweeted that Mitt Romney’s wife Ann had no place commenting on economics because she had never worked (and sounding remarkably like a male chauvanist pig of former decades while doing so — a most remarkable achievement).  America’s stay-at-home mom’s everywhere were shocked to discover that their thoughts on gas prices, food costs, consumer inflation, and other economic concerns are not germane to the discussion of any form of domestic economic policy formulation.  Interesting, because most of the mom’s I know have a fairly significant role in budget planning.  However, given Team Obama’s handling of budget matters, this type of inanity should be unsurprising coming from a 35-time White House cult-woshipper guest.

The take-home message from the White House that Rosen was supposed to push: Ann Romney has not worked a day in her life.

I think we can now carefully conclude, after the push-backs, double-downs, and White House clarifications, this tactic was full of fail. In fact, Dr. Jacobson has a “Tweet of the Day” that shows just how full of fail this has been.

Yep. Many of us, including the passionate feminist activist and independent/conservative pundit Tammy Bruce, have long recognized that Ann Romney makes a compelling partner, and would inspire many less-than-thrilled independent conservatives to pull the lever for Mitt this November. They make a loving, natural-acting, attractive team. Ann seems very modest and supportive, unlike the current FLOTUS. And, a quick google search of “Ann Romney” and “Secret Weapon” is illuminating.

Therefore, she must be Palinized and taken-out before the General Election begins, before Americans everywhere what an elegant, savvy, modest, intelligent role model Ann is for American women voters everywhere. Soon, there will be requests from the elite media for email reviews of Ann’s electronic correspondence, itemization of her clothing expenditures, and rumors of affairs.  How Ann would have time for affairs raising 5 boys is beyond me, but that is a lie that will surely crop up as it apparent that the Romneys make a very compelling team:  A stunning woman like Ann brings highlights the better qualities Mitt has that he may not highlight himself, just by being a loving partner.

However, it seems Ann is not going to roll over for this contemptible treatment. She quickly responded to Rosen’s inanity, detonating a resonating counter-attack in a classy, but totally badass-worthy, style. A clip of this daisy-cutter scale effective response can be found on HotAir, which adds this analysis that I thought was quite interesting.

What I like best about this interview is that Ann Romney saves her ire for one of Rosen’s more overlooked comments. Martha MacCallum plays a clip of the Obama insider saying this about Mitt Romney:

He seems so old-fashioned when it comes to women and I think that comes across and I think that that’s going to hurt him over the long-term because he doesn’t really see us as equals.

Ann responds with a slightly sterner voice, “Now, that does bother me.”

It bothers me, too. Just because Mitt supports stay-at-home motherhood, he doesn’t see women as equals? Sometimes, I think it’s women like Rosen who don’t think women are equal. If they did, they would recognize that it’s worth just as much to stay home with children as it is to work outside the home.

Yes, after this response, the fact that Ann is Mitt’s most effective weapon for votes from both sexes is pretty much out.

As I made a few new poltical-blog mom friends recently, I wanted to take a look at their opinions and views:

Before I sign off, another of my new poltical-blog mom friends, NoOneofAnyImport, passed on this gem, which covers the pain scale I detailed in my last post:   Boyfriend Doesn’t Have Ebola.  Probably.

0: Hi. I am not experiencing any pain at all. I don’t know why I’m even here.

1: I am completely unsure whether I am experiencing pain or itching or maybe I just have a bad taste in my mouth.

2: I probably just need a Band Aid.

3: This is distressing. I don’t want this to be happening to me at all.

4: My pain is not fucking around.

5: Why is this happening to me??

6: Ow. Okay, my pain is super legit now.

7: I see Jesus coming for me and I’m scared.

8: I am experiencing a disturbing amount of pain. I might actually be dying. Please help.

9: I am almost definitely dying.

10: I am actively being mauled by a bear.

11: Blood is going to explode out of my face at any moment.


I think we are going to have a 12 rating: Rosen’s heartache level, realizing that undermining Ann Romney was an epic tactical failure.

Badass Romney detonated the “War on Women” meme, and this is the first significant campaign mistake of the Election 2012 from Team Obama. This Goddess will prophesy: This will not be Team Obama’s last campaign blunder.

I will conclude with the Line of the Day, from Hillary is 44: If Sexism and Misogyny had a son – it would look just like Barack Obama.
