Hump Day Report: Who’s A Wimp?
ALOHA, ALL!! You’ve no doubt heard about or seen the Newsweek cover claiming Romney has a “wimp factor” problem. Well, I think it’s fair to call someone a wimp on the cover of a national rag OOPS! publication. In fact, here are some future covers that Newsweek may want to consider
I like the more appropriate spelling of the publication on this one:
So what gives Newsweek the basis for calling Romney a wimp? I guess just…well…because. But if you want to see a champion, gold-medal-worthy wimp, look no further than Dirty Harry Reid. This guy is in a different league! He now claims to have an anonymous source telling him that Mitt Romney hasn’t paid taxes for 10 years: Romney Is Guilty Of My Evidence-Free Accusations Until He Proves Himself Innocent Bravo, wimp extraordinaire!!!!! What’s next, calling Romney a felon? Oh yeah, that already happened. Anyhow, Harry, we’ll always remember this classic speech from you:
Gee – I wonder what Harry Reid’s Senate will do? House Extends All Bush-Era Tax Rates “With lawmakers about to leave Washington for a five-week recess, the House action amounts to little more than a campaign message. Both parties have jumped headfirst into the tax debate, a confidence reflected in the political votes the Democratic-controlled Senate and GOP-led House have taken in consecutive weeks.”
Meanwhile: Has Any Administration Policy NOT Killed Jobs Lately? “Reid is a major driver of these tax increases and job-killing policies. He has abused his authority as majority leader to block the minority party from the opportunity to offer amendments more than 60 times, more than all of his predecessors combined.” TODAY’S JOBS REPORT: The unemployment rate ticked up to 8.3 percent, 12.8 million Americans are out of work, and 5.2 million have been out of work for at least a half a year. NOTE: the real unemployment rate – including unemployed and underemployed – is now 15%.
Definitely not a wimp! America’s Jewish Gymnastics Star Clinches Gold To The Tune Of ‘Hava Nagila’ “Watching a strong, beautiful Jewish woman finish her last tumbling pass, triumphant, as the whole stadium clapped along to a Hebrew folk song of celebration was a great moment— a moving, joyous contrast to Munich and an example of the kind of cultural tribute that’s unstoppable in free people, no matter what the IOC says.” Take that, IOC! BTW…Aly was the one who was actually singing the National Anthem as the Stars and Stripes were raised! And how about that Gabby Douglas???? USA! USA!
Of course, the IRS will get its share of those Olympic medals (Shaka to George for the link). Win A Medal, Pay The Price “That prize money is taxed at a rate of as much as 35 percent, Americans for Tax Reform calculated. On top of that, the medals themselves are taxed: You only have to fork over $2 to the IRS for the privilege of keeping your bronze medal, but carve off $236 worth from that gold medal.” Marco Rubio thinks this is wrong: Rubio Introduces Bill To Eliminate Olympic Medal Tax “Rubio’s Olympic Tax Elimination Act would amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to strike taxes on American athletes’ Olympic medals and prize money. The law would retroactively apply to Olympic winnings after December 31, 2011.”
We Ate Mor Chikin!! Chick-fil-A Americans Give Big Government The Bird “Millions of Americans across the country lined up for hours to buy chicken sandwiches — and take a stand for free speech. That’s a de facto demonstration, from a public fed up with overweening big government.” I got emails from many of you across the country about how the crowds were phenomenal! I especially like this story from HDR reader Steve: Ted Cruz Serves Chick-fil-A At Victory party Read more about Ted Cruz here: Tea Party Staying Power – The Ted Cruz Victory He’s a rising star! I saw him speak in Hawaii once – great guy!

EXCLUSIVE—MUST CREDIT ACE OF SPADES HQ: Harry Reid’s Office Responds To Rumors That He’s A Pederast
As you know by now, when baseless but serious charges are laid against a powerful political figure, it is the responsibility of the maligned individual to prove their innocence.
With that understanding, I requested comment from Harry Reid’s office on the swirling charges that someone said they heard from someone that Harry Reid is pederast.
The email response from Reid Spokesman Adam Jentleson can only be characterized as chilling:
First, note the non-denial. Based on the rumors we’ve all heard, we can only conclude that at best questions of Reid’s abuse remains an open question.
Second, “Cute” is not how I would describe this situation. Senator Reid has been accused by multiple unnamed figures as a serial abuser. The fact that Reid’s spokesman thinks anything about this situation is “cute” is disturbing and only leads to more questions about the unreleased records that might (or might not) clear Senator Reid’s name.
We will of course be following up on this explosive and developing story….for the children.
In fairness to Harry Reid, does he look like the kind of creepy old man who sees a young boy and thinks, “tasty”?
Hmmm, forget I asked.
Wow! Will keep updated on this. Thanks, Carl.
”Watching a strong, beautiful Jewish woman finish her last tumbling pass, triumphant,…”
Very close to the quote of the year, top 5 certainly!!!
The teens are turning into the decade of the conservative woman, and the “Smart Girls” lead. I’m very proud to have a couple of you as friends. You girls are the absolute best!! 🙂
Love those covers, too.
Mahalo, NEO!! I can honestly say that Smart Girl Politics is one of the best groups out there for conservative women activists! I’m privileged to be a part of the group and editor of the Smart Girl Nation magazine. Teri Cristoph and Stacy Mott, founders of SGP, are tireless, dedicated workers. There are some smart guys involved, too 😉
I know Giliar, it absolutely is, I’m one of the organization’s fans, although I didn’t know you had any guys involved. Love the magazine too! 🙂
