My Responses to Romney’s Acceptance Speech

Romney: (@ 1minute/15secs.) :
“…And by my side I’ve chosen a man with a big heart from a small
town.” “He represents the BEST of America!”
Roseanne: “Mr. Romney says Paul Ryan has a big heart? This is how
he describes a guy who never met a social program he didn’t hate? Of
course, HE received Social Security benefits when his father died. He
used them to help pay for college. And, he’s referenced his Alzheimer’s-
stricken grandmother, who moved in with Ryan and his mother after
his father died – also a beneficiary of the social programs he now
Paul Ryan’s had a Gov’t job with steady paychecks and full
benefits since he was 29 years old, but this is a guy who stands by
the Republican mantra that says:
“I don’t want to abolish government. I simply want to reduce it to
the size where I can drag it into the bathroom and drown it in the
Nice imagery, isn’t it? It sounds “BIG-hearted.” doesn’t it? I guess
he doesn’t want to drag the part that’s provided HIM lots of taxpayer
money and privilege into the bathroom and drown it. More than two
decades of a Government job and now he’s looking for one that
PAYS BETTER. SOME BUSINESSMAN! And, speaking of Business
and the Private Sector: His family’s gotten rich on Gov’t contracts!
Finally, just a word about the “small town” part. Will Republicans
EVER learn? No less a Republican than Colin Powell told Sarah Palin
to quit working that side of the street when she was campaigning with
McCain: Respected Republican Powell said: “With all due respect
to small towns – common sense tells you that MOST Americans
live in large population centers.” Can we stop pushing this gooey,
airbrushed idea that the real Americans are some kind of “Aw,
Shucks!” types who sit and whittle on Main Street in Mayberry? Tens
of millions of real Americans are mired in poverty and written off in
Romney: (@ 2:35) “Four years ago, Americans were excited about
the fresh possibilities of a new President. That President wasn’t the
choice of our Party, but Americans always come together after an
Roseanne: “Really? Republicans joined in and supported the
President? Most of us remember that one of the key planks in
President Obama’s platform and one that was overwhelmingly
supported by voters was Health Care Reform. The pledge to enact
that reform was always cheered loudly throughout the campaign.
After the President assumed office, though, from the outset,
Republicans seemed outraged by the very idea. They forgot what the
majority of voters favored; they were concerned with protecting the
interests of the big insurance companies who line their war chests.
Mitch McConnell has made it clear that preventing President Obama
from gaining a second term has been the number one priority of the
Republican Party, and it was plain to see that policy started early.
Americans always come together after an election, Mr. Romney?
That’s an interesting theory, especially in light of something that
House Majority Leader McConnell just said a few days ago while the
RNC was going on. He said he really doesn’t know what President
Obama is like! This is from a politician whose job is to work with
the President and get things done that the American people want
accomplished! And guess what? He went on to say:
“And I can’t predict what he would be like in a second term. But I
know this: he will not be able to do anything like what he did in the
WHAT? You say Americans come together after an election, Mr.
Romney? One of the highest ranking members of your Party is
already pledging NOT to come together after an election…BEFORE
THE ELECTION! I say, Shame on Mitch McConnell and the
Republican Party!

  1. I think its funny how people are not taking her seriously….why not have a comedian run for pres…we’ve had tons of clown run for many many many years throwing their pies and stomping their big ass funny shoes all over the place, freaking people out over their ugly faces and scary tactics ……what most cant get over is the fact she says it like it is….she is a real person…she might be filthy rich but she lives like a normal person because…..duh she is a normal person…she isnt a fuckin robot who says and does what others want her too.

    we all say and think like her shes just has the balls to say it to the world while the rest of us americans sit on our asses and complain about the other parties running, we would rather talk shit and sit and do nothing than to follow her example and do somthing to change it….i say good for her and best of luck. i myself am an B.O. supporter and not because im a robot but because i agree with alot of things he does, NOT EVerything but enough to never vote for fuckin Romney….hes a fuckin idiot. But both are have issues….but if someone like her is running third party sure i might be switching over….anyone with balls like that willing to stand up and put that shit on blast and not sugar coat anything im for. Best of luck Rose

  3. This is why I Love You Roseanne & I do Believe You Should Run For Public Office..,If Not this election then maybe,..Local Office..show the disbelievers exactly what you can do!!!! I promise you they will be impressed!!!…Trust me..,It’s kind of like show biz..,right.,& I think your friend Ms Diller had good advice when she said run your nut farm..like Paul Newman ran his organization!!..,She was a wonderful woman & you should be proud of what a wonderful friend you where to her..Just makes me admire you more..frances harrahy

  4. It must be nice to have a whole committee to analyze and write ideas for you, that you can claim. Would that we all had such a bunch of groupies to think for us like you do.

    • Are you talking to Roseanne or Romney?

    • Jeffc, you don’t think Roseanne can come up with her own ideas?

      • I seriously doubt she came up with any of that analysis on her own. Yes I think she’s just that stupid!

        • Well, golly gee, whoever came up with the ideas they match what I and many other Americans want to see happen. The “not her ideas” thing is not the issue, the ideas are the issue. Frankly, I can’t see any of those ideas coming to fruition with Romney or Obama. I’m a new convert and I say – Go Barr-Sheehan2012!

        • Jeffc,
          You sound like you’re a conservative, right wing, ultra-religious nut case like the criminals I’m sure you’ll be voting for. Roseanne’s brilliant and has more insight on the reality of the working class majority than you could ever dream to have.

        • Roseanne Barr just blows which ever the way the wind from her mouth takes her.

          Just how many “I think you are this” descriptive words can you string together at one time and end with the phrase “nut case”? Typical behavior of the “I’m following her so I am 100% right” mentality.
          Perhaps Roseanne can have a contest on her web site for that. That ought to grab a headline or 2 and give yet another .00000000000000000001% legitimacy to her latest Hollywood quasi-political stunts. I sense a book deal here “how I spent my summer being stupid and attempted to run for President”.
          I shutter to think this country being run by the likes of such a person.

  5. Republicans supported Obama like the majority of us support the Plague. Republican’s idea of health care for the common people is “Heal thyself”, while the rich get the best medical care modern science can provide. What I hear from the Republicans’ rhetoric is, if you are a commoner and esp if you are a woman, you can just go die because you can’t line our pockets with money.

    Really well stated and written Roseanne. You Rock!
