Doggone Flip-Flops: Romney on the Tax Policy Center

One of the great things about dogs is they can't be fake. The same cannot be said about Mitt Romney.

Romney's Olympic Horse, Rafalca, Ridden by Disgraced Trainer

The Romneys' Olympic horse, Rafalca, is competing in the Olympics today. We support Rafalca. However, the Romneys are not exactly "good" horse owners. 


This is Ann Romney on a horse named "Super Hit," who had the misfortune of falling into their cold, cruel hands. Super Hit was sold by the Romneys for $125,000 in 2008. After the sale, the new owners discovered the horse was physically incapable of performing dressage. They consulted Dr. Stephen Soule, veterinarian for the United States Equestrian Team. Dr. Soule found that Super Hit, at the time he was sold by the Romneys, had a staggering amount of painkillers in his system. 


 "In my 38-years of practice, " Dr. Soule wrote, "I have never come across a drug screen such as this where the horse has been administered so many different medications at the same time." 


The new owners sued Ann Romney and her trainer, Jan Eberling, in 2010, claiming that the lame horse had been drugged with massive amounts of painkillers so that he could continue to perform, hiding his condition. The Romneys settled the case against Ann last September. Jan Eberling, the trainer under whose care Super Hit was drugged, continues to enjoy a relationship with the Romneys - he is riding Rafalca today in the Olympics. 


One thing you DON'T EVER want to be is an animal in the care of the Romneys. Another thing you DON'T EVER want to be is a human under the rule of the Romneys.

Mitt's Friends: "Common people" are "less educated," just "don't understand how things work."

I found this stunningly elitist quote from one of Mitt Romney's wealthy supporters while reading the news last night. This is how they think of us - as "commoners" who must not be as smart as they because we are "lower income." We just don't understand how "things work."
