Ouch-O-Bama! Ultra-Boring Mitt Romney Polls Ahead of Obama for 2012 & Columnist Calls Obama "The New W." The White House Must Be Fumin' Like a Feech!
I was rather shocked at new polling data showing that Boring White Male Retread Republican Mitt Romney would beat Obama in New Hampshire by a fairly hefty margin if the 2012 presidential election were held this weekend (link at bottom). Romney is currently thought of as sort of a quasi-favorite to win the GOP nomination for "Election Day" (video at bottom) 2012, with Mike Huckabee and Donald Trump as his strongest potential challengers.
The new poll from Ivy League Dartmouth College's Nelson A. Rockefeller Center shows Romney whipping Obama's ass by eight percentage points (47% to 39%) in New Hampshire if the election was held this weekend. These can't be considered bright numbers for the president seeing as that he kicked McCain's Tired Old Ass by nine percentage points (54% to 45%) in New Hampshire in 2008.
Not to mention, Mitt Freakin' Romney?!? I literally "Laughed Out Loud" when I saw this story. I mean, just look above at this goof (pictured above beside right-wing nut job Sharron Angle), this stiff, this bore, this dupe, this cadaver, this completely uninspiring oaf of a deranged right-winger!
It's why I've been saying for months that sitting president Obama probably wins reelection in 2012: The likely GOP field of challengers -- including Romney -- is about as exciting as swatting flies in a Mississippi Shithouse.
And what, pray tell, might you guess that the linked article from Politico.com attributes Romney's surprising numbers to (sorry to end sentence on a preposition, Jeeves)? BINGO! Damn Pesky Independents!
Romney leads Obama by eight percentage points -- not coincidentally the very same spread (44% to 36%) by which New Hampshire Independents currently favor Romney over Obama. I don't often say that We Independents Decide Your Election Outcomes for nothing, after all.
Additionally, whatever minions at the White House whom Obama assigns to monitor his weekend news coverage can't be too happy at the linked column from the Arizona Republic, which brands Obama as "The New W."
The column is an interesting read, but hardly original. Hell, I've been comparing and equating Obama and W Bush for at least a year now in this space. Those two fools remain, hands down, the two worst and most destructive presidents of my lifetime (and I've lived through Jimmy Carter and part of Nixon).
Put another way in Rock Legend: "Meet the New Boss, Same as the Old Boss." (Here's hoping that America Won't Get Fooled Again. Watch the video at bottom, and in particular The Madman -- the Greatest Rock'n'Roll Drummer of All-Time, Keith Moon, in what must have been not too far in advance of his 1978 death. Hey, he Died Before He Got Old -- wasn't that the Plan? But I digress).
Indeed, some of this Obama news from this weekend must have the White House fumin' like a Feech, as noted at the top. Specifically, I'm referring to one Michele "Feech" La Manna -- the hilarious foul-mouthed and extremely hot-tempered gangster from Season 5 of "The Sopranos."
The only thing that ever disappointed with Feech was the fact that his run on "The Sopranos" was so damn short. He had such a penchant for constantly blowing his stack at anyone and everyone around him, that even huge-tempered boss Tony Soprano quickly arranged for Feech -- who'd just been paroled out the joint -- to get nailed with a trumped up parole violation in order to send Feech's hot-headed old ass right back to the hoosegow.
Watch Feech's greatest "hits" and highlights from his short run on that show here (my personal favorite is when Feech beats the holy hell out of a lawn & garden man who rubs Feech the wrong way):
Feech vs. Paulie Walnuts YARD WARS:
Finally, I would be remiss if I didn't mention that Feech was played by Robert Loggia -- a truly badass actor who has just as much of a temper as Feech himself. In short, Loggia's like a Disturbed "Animal."
Loggia got into a physical altercation with Al Pacino while auditioning for Scarface after Pacino was late and "half asleep" for the audition (Loggia says he "shook Pacino's cage"). Following the run-in, Pacino reportedly told the casting director, "I want Bob" in Scarface (in which he did appear as Drug Kingpin Frank Lopez).
Loggia also once threw famed director David Lynch into a wall ("I rattled his cage") when Lynch showed up late for Loggia's audition for the 1986 film Blue Velvet (one of my favorite old films). Lynch, like Pacino, was actually impressed by Loggia's temper and cast Loggia in 1997's Lost Highway (even though Loggia didn't get a role in Blue Velvet). (Check the Comments section below for an article detailing these various Loggia anecdotes).
But more important than any of that, Loggia is also a fellow journalism grad from the University of Missouri (Class of '51), which means that he's well-educated. In contrast, Obama (just like "W" of course) is an Ivy League graduate, meaning he's a condescending, elitist snob.
Give me a fellow hot-headed, ill-tempered Mizzou grad and "Mizzou mafia" member (i.e. MU J grad) any day of the week over your prototypical 20 percenter leftist. Shit, forget Trump. Loggia For President; ROCK AND ROLL!
