When Roger West first launched the progressive political blog "News From The Other Side" in May 2010, he could hardly have predicted the impact that his venture would have on the media and political debate. As the New Media emerged as a counterbalance to established media sources, Roger wrote his copious blogs about national politics, the tea party movement, mid-term elections, and the failings of the radical right to the vanguard of the New Media movement. Roger West's efforts as a leading blogger have tremendous reach. NFTOS has led the effort to bring accountability to mainstream media sources such as FOX NEWS, Breitbart's "Big Journalism. Roger's breadth of experience, engaging style, and cultivation of loyal readership - over 92 million visitors - give him unique insight into the past, present, and future of the New Media and political rhetoric that exists in our society today.

Flip-flopping Mitt Romney has been plagued by the question, "Will the real Mitt Romney please stand up?"

Imagine how hard it is being Mitt Romney. "Let's see, which one am I supposed to be today? Am I the Tea Party champion, the hater of Obamacare, the crusader bent on tearing into the Nation's Capitol and tearing down everything Obama built, starting with that terrible health care plan based on...Uh Oh - based on my health care plan in Massachusetts?"

As we know, Mittens has a certain inability to connect with potential voters because of his frequent and very convenient shifts in views on pretty much everything - that along with his distortions of truths has solidified him as an unworthy President.

Gov." Dagwood " (I finally figured out what comic strip character he reminds me of) Romney can't seem to get his mind around anything of substance. He's not an orator, he's not a deep thinker, or a visionary. He's certainly not presidential material, though he looks like a president and that seems to be all he has gong for him.

Mitt Romney and the Teapublicans are practicing seditious demagoguery and anti-democracy obstructionism intended to destabilize our economy for purposes of social, political and financial exploitation.

Teapublicans aren't making a sincere effort to stop the bleeding their deregulated leadership and failed policies created. Instead, Mittens and Paul Ryan et al. are using inflammatory lies and false accusations as a smokescreen to conceal their subversive agenda, which is to cause the American people to blame Democrats for the consequences of their calamitous mismanagement.

Mittens is preposterously professing that his disgraceful political whoring and business ethics had nothing to do with his cut and slashing of companies for personal riches and personal gains!

Mittens and Ryan are trying to hamstring Democrats to prevent them from repairing the damage caused during the failed Bush presidency - enabled by teapublican Senators and Representatives.

Mittens is offering ridiculous arguments meant solely to disrupt and prevent constructive change. He'd rather create the suffering of American families than endure the political consequences of human centered effective governance.

Teapublicans aren't the loyal opposition; they are the enemy within whose mercenary priorities have eroded their moral and ethical standards to the point that duplicity and betrayal have become their preferred modus operandi.

It's one thing to advocate conservative beliefs; it's another thing entirely to willfully sabotage America's government because a Democratic presidency would not be vulnerable to the avarice, fears and bigotries that have produced and sustained the despicable teapublican anti-humanity corporatism and anti-Christian faux theocracies that are poisoning and crippling the American society.

Sooner or later, the real Mitt Romney must present himself to the American people. Will the real Mitt Romney please stand up?
