Hypocrites and The Hypocritical Statements They Make

01 Jul

A quick roundup of stupid this morning brings us the following.

Rep. Paul Ryan (Hypocrite-WI) is arguing that President Barack Obama’s health care reform law should be repealed because rights come from “nature and God,” not the government.

“I think this at the end of the day is a big philosophy difference,” he continued. “What Ms. Kennedy and others were saying is that this is a new government-granted right. We disagree with the notion that our rights come from government, that the government can now grant us and define our rights. Those are ours, they come from nature and God, according to the Declaration of Independence — a huge difference in philosophy.”

Mr. Ryan’s PR flack then released a statement that the expenses for Mr. Ryan’s own government provided right to free health care would be shared equally by God and Nature.

In a related Story, Old Age Mutant Ninja Turtle Mitch McConnell (Hypocrite-KY) managed to evade repeated attempts by Fox Anchor Chris Wallace to pin him down as to  how Republicans would insure the 30 million Americans who would be left without health coverage when the ACA was repealed after the elections.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Sunday downplayed the need to find an alternate way to insure the 30 million Americans who will get coverage under the President Obama’s health care law.

On Fox News Sunday, McConnell said Republicans want to repeal ‘Obamacare’ and implement “modest” reforms. Host Chris Wallace pressed him on how he would insure 30 million Americans that will get coverage under President Obama’s reforms.

“That is not the issue,” McConnell said. “The question is how can you go go step by step to improve the American health care system. It is already the finest health care system in the world.”

Wallace responded, “You don’t think 30 million uninsured is an issue?”

“Let me tell you what we’re not going to do,” McConnell said. “We’re not going to turn the American health care system into a western European system.”

Mr McConnell then informed Fox viewers that to prove he was just as sincere about this issue as mr. Ryan, he was giving up his own taxpayer provided health insurance plan in favor of a privately provided plan that would be paid for by Shredder Insurance Llc, a Koch Bros subsidiary.

Did you hear?  Mitt Romney “moved into” his son’s unfinished basement so he could vote for Scott brown in the 2010 MA senatorial election.  Or at least he gave it as his residence address.  Don’t you just love the smell of Republic voter fraud in the morning?  from Forbes article last year:

Mitt Romney lived in his son’s unfinished basement in Belmont, Massachusetts in 2010 – or at least that what he claimed to the state to be able to vote last year, says GOP candidate Fred Karger.

If that’s true, Romney showed a true commitment to voting for Republican Senator Scott Brown in last year’s special election, since he owns a $12.5 million home in La Jolla, Calif. and a $10 million home in New Hampshire’s Lake Winnipesaukee – but no home in the state he was once governor {of}.

Still, as Belmont, Mass. property assessment records I dug up show, the basement is unfinished – hardly the standard the former investment banker would be used to. Here’s a portion of the property record (Belmont Property View). I have edited the image to highlight the basement description. Here is the full record: Belmont Property View full. As a public record you can find the full report also through the town of Belmont here. The property was last inspected by the town on June 21, 2010, well after the state’s January special election that filled Ted Kennedy’s old seat.

Of course, as Karger argues to the Massachusetts Secretary of State,  Romney likely didn’t live in the basement, so it appears like voter fraud, a crime punishable by up to five years in jail and a $10,000 fine.

Sorry, no hypocritical statement to quote here but then that in itself is a perfect example of Mitt’s special brand of hypocrisy, innit?  Back to the Twitterverse to try to cull more of the choicest morsels from the never ending supply of right wing hypocrisy and incredibly odorous GOP bovine flatulence.

    Okay but in a kind of reverse irony, we probably have to admit that voter ID would have thwarted the Mittster’s fraud.

    True. I hadn’t thought of it but… true.
