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.

Mittens Explains his disdain and contempt for the 47%

..."Those People".....

In a span of two weeks. two titans of knee-jerk, Reich-wing. brains-free, racist, xenophobic, delusional, greedy, unfeeling, inept, indifferent, self-inflating, and unconscionable profitable voices of the lunatic right wing fringe self destructed.

It's official, Mitt Romney is a douche bag! It's not normal that another's words piss me off, but Mittens has accomplished what little can do. It's not the sophistry of this simpletons views on our country that infuriates me, its the refusal to use any intellectual energy in arriving at it. You can always tell, can't you, Mittens, when the hostage is reading his own ransom note, and when he is reading one written for him.

Mittens got caught up in the moment, the moment of boasting to rich radical tea baggers, which always seems like a good idea, that is until you find yourself in the terminal stages of an answer so labyrinth, so filled with double entendres, disdain and content, that you remember a time when you're not in front of these radical tea baggers lost in your own sentences.

According to the right-wing paranoia prophet, [at a 50, 000 dollar a plate fundraiser in Florida recently] Mitt Robme tells his tribe of banshees his true feelings about 47% of Americans:
"There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what," Romney says in one clip. "All right -- there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent on government, who believe that, that they are victims, who believe that government has the responsibility to care for them. Who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing."
"My job is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives," 

The facts that the ignoramous ignored: [see chart below]

A few mere problems with the idea of the overburdened "53 percent." Many Americans don't pay federal income taxes, in part, because of deductions like the child tax credit that have been championed by conservatives and progressives alike. Almost all of the "47 percent" do pay other federal taxes in the form of Social Security and Medicare payroll deductions and gas levies, as well as a variety of state and local sales and property taxes that aren't dependent on income.

Unraveling an often stated teapublican myth about who pays taxes in America - newly pertinent due to Mr. Romney's astonishing words in a leaked video that just came out.

A wise man once said:
"Teach a man to fish, and he will eat for life, Society is built on an individuals responsibility and access to opportunity.

A teapublican will then slash the fishing education, vilify the teachers, reward the corporate fisheries, gut regulation on protecting the fishing industry, all the while whining, that teaching a man how to fish is socialism, and then and only then, will they blame the 47% of its citizenry for being lazy and wanting/waiting for government handouts "
Cognitive dissonance is, in the simplest of terms - a state of holding two or more conflicting ideas or beliefs at the same time... This is what is required to believe the radical teapublican theocracy. Robme and Lyin Ryan should have a new campaign strategy, which is to have their mouths wired shut until after November 6th.

NFTOS readers, let's not let a few dumb things Mittens has said in private overshadow the many idiotic things he's said in public!

Of late, we have learned that this magical underwear tour, this very bombastic dynamic duo, has very little quantifiable brain matter to occupy the two top offices of our country.

You have sat too long Mittens for any good that you may think you have been doing lately. Depart, I say, and let us be done with you! In the name of God, go!
