Where Are You On Political Spectrum?

This is a bit of fun for fans of US politics – the respected Pew Research Center has a quick survey to place you on the Democrat-Republican spectrum. Guido scored as below:

Elsewhere Stateside Fox News has classified our own media-leftist-luvvie Owen Jones as a “creep” and “braying jackal”. Jones is lovin’ the attention…

Romney Picks Ryan

Mitt Romney has picked Congressman Paul Ryan, an ideological proponent of tax and spending cuts, to be his vice-presidential running mate. Romney at a stroke has squared the restless Republican right-wing and tea partiers. The election moves from being a referendum on Obama – “are you better off now than you were 4 years ago” – to a choice about the kind of future America the voters want. A socialised European-style America or a low tax, free enterprise America.

Rep. Paul Ryan first came on to Guido’s radar in 2011 when as chairman of the House Budget Committee he launched this 3-minute video

He should kick Biden’s ass in the televised VP Debates…

Body Language: Who is in Power?

Exclusive: Romney Cuts Fundraiser Tickets
Prices Slashed from $25,000 to $10,000!

Mitt Romney’s London visit is not going well. After insulting the Olympics (a grave crime apparently) and forgetting Miliband’s name, Guido learns that tonight’s fundraiser is struggling to get the numbers.

The Republican candidate has been forced to cut prices from $25,000:

“From: XXXX
Subject: romney dinner…..reduced price for last minute guests has been negotiated

Good news:  The Romney dinner in London on Thursday, July 26th is reaching an all time record for a one event fundraiser.  In order to get us over the top, we have been allowed to invite a few last minute guests at 10,000 per ticket vs 25,000 per ticket.”

Lovely spinning there…

UPDATE: This is an invite to Romney’s reception tonight:

Guido hears the price has been cut to $1,000…

When Mitt Romney Came To Town

20120725-090430.jpg

In a bid to prove his foreign policy credentials, Mitt Romney has solved one of the largest ever strains on the Special Relationship. No, he hasn’t declared the Falkands to be British, rather he has promised to restore the bust of Churchill to the Oval Office if he beats Obama. See it is an equal partnership really…

Arriving today for the Olympic opening ceremony and meetings with Cameron and Miliband, the Republican Presidential campaign has been briefing Jon Swaine:

“…advisers told The Daily Telegraph that he would abandon Mr Obama’s “Left-wing” coolness towards London. We are part of an Anglo-Saxon heritage, and he feels that the special relationship is special,” the adviser said of Mr Romney, adding: “The White House didn’t fully appreciate the shared history we have.”

Anglo-Saxon? Not the most subtle dog whistle…

Palin Gay Scandal

Another day, another Sarah Palin mess.  Her three-year-old grandson used a gay slur in a reality TV show. Tripp Palin, the son of 21-year-old Bristol, screamed at his aunt Willow: “Go away you f*ggot!”

Bristol and Willow responded by laughing and warning the troublesome tot: “God is watching you“.

And the rest of the world…

David Cameron on political promiscuity…

“On May 7 you could go to bed with Nigel Farage and wake up with Ed Miliband. Not one bit of that works for me.”



cynic says:

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
