Romney Has Contempt For Mythical 47%, POTUS JFK Took Responsibility For Real 91%

“Harry Truman once said, ‘There are 14 or 15 million Americans who have the resources to have representatives in Washington to protect their interests, and that the interests of the great mass of the other people — the 150 or 160 million — is the responsibility of the President of the United States, and I propose to fulfill it.’”

John Fitzgerald Kennedy, speaking in Atlantic City, New Jersey, at the Convention of the United Auto Workers on May 8, 1962.

This passage was featured in the Charles Guggenheim documentary that was, until recently, shown to visitors to the John F. Kennedy museum.

The Ultimate Guide To Mitt Romney’s Convention Speech

Mitt Romney

Politicians from both parties twist facts or spin policy, but Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign has had a particularly strained relationship with the truth, repeating false claims with impunity — even after fact checkers, mainstream media organizations, and blogs have all debunked their assertions.

From claiming that “Obama gutted the welfare work requirement” to insisting that his own policies won’t deregulate Wall Street, Romney has led a post-truth campaign. A top adviser even admitted earlier this week, “We’re not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact-checkers.”

ThinkProgress has compiled a Viewer’s Guide comparing what Romney says with the facts:

Romney on His Tax Plan


“The highest income people will continue to pay the largest share of the tax burden and middle-income taxpayers, under my plan… So, we’re not going to reduce taxes for high-income people.” [CBS, 8/12/2012]

The National Republican Election-Rigging Conspiracy of 2012 Already Showing Its Infection As Numerous Blatant Crimes Committed During Maine Primary Caucuses

A few new tricks and reliance on the old reliables, we see the evidence everywhere of the Republican Party’s official adoption of a national policy of try-to-buy-or-steal every election, every time.

Maybe some day we will be able to trust elections in the U.S.A. again. That day is not this day.

San Diego City Police: Medical-marijuana raids involved 105 police personnel

SDPD: Medical-marijuana raids involved 105 police personnel

CityBeat’s Original Story

On Sept. 15, CityBeat filed a public-records request with the San Diego Police Department and county Sheriff’s Department requesting a personnel and cost breakdown, including overtime, for the Sept. 9 raids of 14 medical-marijuana collectives in San Diego County.

Six days later, Sanford A. Toyen, a legal adviser to Sheriff Bill Gore, responded to the request by saying no information was available because “[t]ypically such ‘cost breakdowns’ are not generated unless overtime is used. No overtime was used for the raids referenced in your request.”

Today, San Diego Police Department spokesperson Monica Munoz finally wrote back, and her response was — to say the least — eye-opening. Here’s her reply verbatim:

On Sept 9, 2009 SDPD conducted a sweep that targeted illegal marijuana dispensaries. Generally the SDPD does not keep a specific record of money spent for each operation or event, and did not in this instance.

However, through an operations plan, we do keep a record as to the number of officers involved in an event / operation. The sweep involved the following personnel:
