“I’ll Be Damned. We’re Republicans!”

New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez

That brought howls from me as New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez said them on TV tonight at the Republican National Convention.

She told of uttering those lines to her husband after two Republicans took her and her husband to a lunch in which she knew they were going to ask her to change parties.

The Republicans talked about issues.

After the luncheon, when the two got in the car, she said,

“I’ll be damned. We’re Republicans!”

  1. Read “The Obama Hate Machine” and you will learn the Lies, Misinformation, Media Manipulation and Personal Attacks against the First Black President, Who is behind them and why. The GOP, once considered Liberal and Progressive under Eisenhower has been taken over by a bunch of Radical, Lunatic Fringe, Racist, Bigot, Misogynistic, and Homophobic Evangelical Hypocrites. The Russian born Koch Brothers, who fund over 23 “Think Tanks”, are behind the dissemination of 1950’s Style Communist propaganda. They along with the GOP vomit lie, after lie, after lie no matter how many time the lie is repudiated and debunked knowing that repeated often enough, the ignorant will believe it. Using their Mouthpieces Fox “news”, AFP and Rush Limbaugh they have managed to Dupe and Brainwash Millions of mostly Low IQ, Low information Americans into voting against their own Economic, Social, Environmental and Health Care Reform interests to appease the Tax breaks and Deregulations for their .01% Puppet Masters. Like Chickens voting for Colonel Sanders. See the new Documentary Koch brothers exposed and ALEC Exposed for the true AFP agenda of turning our Democracy into a Faciast Corporate Plutocracy Aided by the Idiocracy of Tea Party Constituents.

  2. Here is a list of five lies that Ryan told when he gave his speech at the Republican National Convention last night. Romney, Ryan and the GOP/Tea Party have been FactChecked and Proven to be nothing more tha Pathological Liars and Puppets of the 1%.

    1. Lie: President Obama is the “greatest threat” to Medicare.
    Truth: Obama didn’t make any cuts to Medicare benefits; he made cuts to provider reimbursements, to improve cost efficiency and extend the fiscal security of Medicare by eight years. According to the Medicare actuary, “[Obama’s] Affordable Care Act makes important changes to the Medicare program and substantially improves its financial outlook.”
    But Ryan actually does want to cut benefits. He proposed dismantling Medicare and replacing it with a voucher system, leaving millions of seniors to come up with more money to pay for care out of pocket.

    2. Lie: President Obama didn’t save a General Motors plant in Wisconsin.
    Truth: First, Obama wasn’t even in office when the GM plant closed. Second, Obama never made a promise to save it.

    3. Lie: President Obama ignored recommendations of a bipartisan debt commission.
    Truth: Paul Ryan actually sat on that commission. And he led Republicans in voting down the commission’s own recommendation. So the commission never gave a report to Obama, because Ryan himself voted to kill the report before it could.

    4. Lie: President Obama is responsible for the downgrading of the U.S. Credit Rating
    Truth: House Republicans, including Paul Ryan, held the full faith and credit of the United States hostage to try to ransom it for trillions of dollars in cuts to social programs without increasing taxes on the wealthy one dime. Standard & Poors said specifically, “We have changed our assumption on [revenue] because the majority of Republicans in Congress continue to resist any measure that would raise revenues.” That’s why our nation’s credit rating was downgraded.

    5. Lie: Ryan wants to protect the “weak.”
    Truth: Ryan’s biggest feat in his political career was proposing a budget with dramatic cuts to programs benefiting the poor. He’d cut Medicaid by one third, take away health care insurance from 30 million Americans, and cut Pell Grants for 1 million students. All so that he could give more tax breaks to the rich.
