Republicans Attack Romney For His Predatory Anti-Worker Business Practices—Everybody For Themselves In Every Respect

It is simply amazing how quickly Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry have engaged in bashing the predatory business practices of Mitt Romney.

I can’t imagine that any of the loyal base of the Republican Party would be open to arguments based on that terrible evil of class warfare.

Never would such good upright people succumb to such arguments.

While Governor Romney has engaged in predatory practices that have enriched him on the backs of the people he has had a large hand in laying off , you’d think leading Republicans would have enough loyalty to the power of money in the United States to let it go unaddressed.

Nope. Mr. Gingrich and some of his fellow Republicans are loyal to the party in the sense that are loyal first of all to themselves. These folks understand the Republican message quite well.

Here is a link to the video released by a super pac allied with Newt Gingrich that talks about layoffs at hand of Governor Romney and Bain Capital. It is quite a video–Well worth your 28 minutes.

Perry Dorrell at the great Texas political blog Brains & Eggs has written on this subject as well.

Socialist Government Snowplows Descend On Midland-Odessa

Above and below are Texas Department of Transportation photos of snowplows at work in the Midland-Odessa area.

Here is the caption with photo you see above—

“TxDot Odessa District crews plow the roads after receiving a record snowfall on January 9-10, 2012, and work tirelessly to clear roads and bridges.”

Government at work even in very conservative parts of our Great State of Texas.

The people of Midland-Odessa are not tough enough and hard-working enough to overcome this obstacle?  No citizen-volunteers have formed teams to come and get the snow off the roads?

Maybe it is only people someplace else, and people unlike however folks perceive themselves in conservative parts of the nation, who rely on government in a bad way.

Here are facts about snow from the National Snow and Ice Data Center.

Here is a history of snow removal.
