Is The U.S. Dollar Raaaaacist?

Given the working definition of raaaaacism as ‘defying Obama’, one may be forced into an affirmative response:

The trend is for Romney fundraising to increase, whereas Obama’s appears to have crested. Power Line notes: “Not only that, [Romney’s] advantage will be increased by what seems to be a more efficient–i.e., cheaper–campaign operation.” Whereas #OccupyResoluteDesk’s campaign may be in some disarray. In other news, King George has been buying gold. Mere coincidence. Do not connect those dots.  As with the job numbers, and math in general, the dollar seems to be guilty of ‘hating a black man in the White House‘. Bad dollar: bad.

The usual DGCK warning applies. While not a kid, Todd Akin reminds us all that Bidenism is only acceptable if your name is Biden. And we have over two months to go. Fortunately, the Romney campaign seems to have a good understanding of the medium pace.

    RE: George Soros

    A thought just occurred to me: for decades now, Hollywood has portrayed evil businessmen [read: ‘conservative’] in a number of their apocalyptic films as guys who planned for the collapse of civilization by building fortified compounds and, interestingly enough, hoarding things like gold before the poop hit the proverbial fan. These sinister SOB’s then try to become feudal lords in the post-apocalyptic.

    Wouldn’t it be funny if the collapse did happen and Soros was the guy in the compound???

    I don’t know how efficient the Romney campaign is, one presumes he is good at that sort of thing. But Obama is by all accounts just determined to spend like crazy, and has from the start. They rented the prime commercial offices and furnished them very nicely, they have over 800 paid staff and are still adding on, supposedly most are better paid than any previous political campaign by a long shot.

    Obama’s campaign certainly mirrors the way he’s run the country. It seems all that crap about what a political genius he is was just methane. He caught the Trifecta in 2008 with a two-term President of the other party, a war-weary public, a financial crisis, and the image of “cool” that sucked in the youth vote.

    By the way: to answer your question…

    Of course the U.S. Dollar is raaaaacist. Slave owner Jefferson conceived of it!

    Soros made his first billion speculating in currency, making him the first billionaire who made it without actually creating any wealth along the way.

    I understand he has also bought an ownership stake in Manchester United, which gives everyone another reason to ignore soccer.

    As if I needed another reason to ignore soccer!

    So I take it neither of you have an issue with the sports coverage in Live At Five, then. 😉

    I find it a refreshing break from the usual PC sports coverage.

    It was a Quadfecta [is there such a thing???]: and a grumpy old slimeball GOP Nominee.
