  1. Egon Ruuda says:

    W: Ron paul.

  2. Captain Obvious says:

    Obviously you want Joe Pesci for Chief of Staff.

  3. bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

    What does it matter? Except for the Sup Ct, all of these positions are simple tools of the Executive in Chief and whomever/whatever cabal pulls his strings.

    Good show just now on Democracy Now to repeated once tonight about a shadowy hedge fund cabal that teams up with Rmoney to make their billions. On is a double blind trust with Mrs Rmoney that made money during the bankruptcy of the parts company that works with GM. It was moved to China which is part of why Rmoney was against any bailout.

    All very conspiratorial and ILLEGAL in most civilized countries, which is only CONSISTENT with it being immoral but legal here in the USA.

    BIG MONEY = BIG EVIL. When names are named and the names are billionaires….. I tend to believe.

    Yes, it goes up a notch:

    RICH = CRIMINAL = LIARS = EVIL.

    The equation only grows.

      Greg Palast: “Mitt Romney’s Bailout Bonanza: How He Made Millions from the Rescue of Detroit”; Greg Palast on “Billionaires & Ballot Bandits: How to Steal an Election in 9 Easy Steps”; Six Arrested in Illinois Protesting Bain Capital’s Plan to Close Sensata Plant, Move Jobs to China

      http://democracynow.org/podcast.xml

      On the ED Show–Congress person proclaiming the Pukes have blocked 9 different job creating programs proposed. Very consistent with the above: Short Betting the USA.

      Its what the international top .01% do while Puke Voters think their enslavement is a form of freedom.

      Silly Hoomans.

      • MikeN says:

        Nice to see Greg Palast still at work spinning conspiracy theories. Actually, Obama made money from how the government bailed out Delphi. And screwing over Delphi’s workers in favor of UAW helped even more.

        • MikeN says:

          Has Greg Palast already written his article about how votes were stolen from Obama, or is he going to wait until actual results come in?

      • pedro says:

        Dumbbo and his self-hating. Don’t worry Dumbbo, you’ll feel better giving away your wealth to the poor

        • noname says:

          Does anybody understand PP(pointless pedro)?

          Doesn’t seem so. PP you are just some jackass pretending to be smart.

          • pedro says:

            Just smarter than thou (easy task since you have no brain).

          • noname says:

            PP(poor pedro) you only wish you was even smart.

            Don’t give up, keep trying! Someday you might blog something barely intelligent.

          • pedro says:

            “you only wish you was even smart.”

            Ebonics again?

            Sure, I vow to your “superior” intelligence. The good thing is that your lack of brain is a hoot to you. Poor sap.

          • noname says:

            PP(pointless pedro) you’re such the committed dumb-ass, it’s just too funny!! :)

            You pointing out grammar in DU, as if you even knew US English; now that’s rich & funny!

            Are you trying to convince everyone you’re a grammar school teacher now?

            Bwahahaha!!!!

          • pedro says:

            I commend you for laughing at your own stupidity

          • noname says:

            PP(pointless pedro), I am glad you like me laughing and I am laughing at you!

            It’s really super you’re encouraging everyone to laugh and deride you.

            Sad PP, with you being mental and deluded makes any attention you get good.

            Take your meds.

    • DogEars says:

      I have some questions with the absolute quality of your repeated statement that RICH=EVIL. If I’m a moral, ethical person, striving to become rich, must I become evil to do so? Is the term rich philanthropist an oxymoron? If we tax the rich, feed the poor, till there ain’t no rich no more, will we have rid the world of evil? Once the world has been rid of these evil rich, who will feed the poor? Will the formerly rich no longer be evil? If I’m poor, and win 200 million in the lottery, will I become evil? If I dream of becoming rich, am I already evil, or am I just dreaming of being evil? Is wealth directly proportional to evil? If I’m only moderately rich, am I only moderately evil? Do I become a little more evil with each dollar I bank?
      If RICH=LIARS, and I tell you I’m rich, then that means I’m actually poor, which means I was telling the truth, which means… crap I’m confused.

      • ± says:

        Har. Don’t expect a response more cogent than the logic demonstrated in the equation.

  4. Dallas says:

    Willard would choose Donald Rumsfeld for Sec of Defense; Marie Osmond for Sec of State and Donnie Osmond for Chief of Staff.

    • pedro says:

      Who was Obomba’s first secretary of defense? I think he should be Romney’s as well.

      What a dumb sheep you are DUllass

      • noname says:

        PP(pointless pedro), still sheepishly trolling!

        Ironic you trying to call someone dumb!

        Someday, you might actually almost have something intelligent to say; but at your current pace, you’re just getting dumber!

        You’re more of a genetic looser without your meds!

        • pedro says:

          Poor nobrain looking for attention. I thought people love to talk to you. I bet you didn’t even fooled yourself with that line.

          • noname says:

            Sure PP(pointless pedro) did I get your attention, you did reply?

            You only wish you could grow a brain. Keep trying, don’t give up. Everyone is betting against you!

          • pedro says:

            Your liberul skull (no brain inside) doesn’t allow you to even understand plain English, let alone write it.

          • noname says:

            PP(pointless pedro) everyone is a liberal compared to you.

            By the way, if you are going to try and be DU grammar school teacher, you need to learn how to spell!

            Watching dumb-asses like you shit on them self is really entertaining. :) :) :)

  5. UncDon says:

    Elmer Fudd surely for Dept of the Interior if Romney gets in.

    • MikeN says:

      That would be an improvement. Someone who supports hunters and shooters and would not be opposed to drilling even if gas prices are $10 a gallon, as the current Secretary stated when he was in the Senate.

  6. gildersleeve says:

    Nice looking cabinet. Who’s the designer?

  7. noname says:

    Who Will/Should Be On The Winner’s Cabinet?

    How about MR. MIRROR!

    That way, anyone how looks at the cabinet, thinks they are on the cabinet!

    Everybody is a winner!

  8. Taxed Enough Already Dude says:

    I predict Chairman Obama will keep the present cabinet till these posts are redefined the New Peoples Republic of America.

    Some are destined for re-education camps.

    I hope Romney does a clean sweep of the entire bureaucracy and does a Calvin Coolidge style shutting down of whole cabinets and regulatory agencies, like the EPA and perhaps the Fed.

    He’ll need Ron Paul’s advice on how to proceed in that area so he should be Chief of Staff.

  9. dusanmal says:

    Way too much detail asked. I’ll say what looks probable (not that I’d welcome such choices)

    Chief of staff:Eric Fehrnstrom
    Secretary of State: Giuliani
    C,D,E,F,G: Current ones fired together with deep layers of surrounding staff, new people – impossible to tell but background checked to the womb
    H: Would be possible to be dismantled, hard. Barbour.
    L,M,N,R,U,T: Disbanded, if not for U (EPA) Joe Manchin
    Interior Secretary: Santorum
    Supreme Court: Edith Brown Clement
    I or W: Ron Paul. Meg Whitman
    Not asked but possible position of importance and payback: UN Amb. Gingrich

  10. Supreme Ultrahuman (I see the comment system is still designed for retards.) says:

    Doesn’t matter who the individuals are if they follow the proper agenda:

    1. If America isn’t leading the way, the human race has no reason to exist. This means a doomsday bomb is perfectly moral if America ever falls.

    2. City living is detrimental to human development and shall be outlawed. Working there is fine as long as you drive in from at least 2o mi. out – in your own full-size private vehicle. Rebuild every city to accommodate every working adult driving their own Suburban individually. Parking and roads will be sized appropriately.

    3. Every citizen shall be required to eat bacon cheeseburgers, drink alcohol, shoot guns, go nude in public and have sex with multiple partners. ( this takes care of a lot of quirky groups, liberal and conservative that all need to STFU.)

    4. Threaded commenting systems are not worthy of Americans and shall be punishable with torture.

    • ± says:

      Agree with #4; hierarchical commenting is vastly superior.

      • Supreme Ultrahuman (I see the comment system is still designed for retards.) says:

        Rich = good. Replying to individual comments = evil!

  11. Supreme Ultrahuman (I see the comment system is still designed for retards.) says:

    Dammit, I forgot

    5. All citizens are allowed to say “fuck” any time they like. The Parents Television Council and and other dried up biddies can shut the fuck up. God invented profanity so we could use it.

  12. bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

    DogEars fairly asks evidently for the first time:
    10/19/2012 at 7:14 pm

    I have some questions with the absolute quality of your repeated statement that RICH=EVIL. /// Few things are absolute, and when touching upon hooman affairs: nothing is absolute.

    If I’m a moral, ethical person, striving to become rich, must I become evil to do so? // No. Just hard to avoid.

    Is the term rich philanthropist an oxymoron? /// No, just easier that way. Usually the two acitivites are performed separately. That says a lot just on its own.

    If we tax the rich, feed the poor, till there ain’t no rich no more, will we have rid the world of evil? /// Course not. Evil as variously defined is an absolute in human affairs. (Eeeeks!)

    Once the world has been rid of these evil rich, /// Don’t need to get rid of them==just regulate/jail them. Evil declines, philanthropy may or may not increase.

    who will feed the poor? /// Everyone else.

    Will the formerly rich no longer be evil? /// Probably most will still be evil, just not by stealing everyone else’s money. But they are a compulsive if not clever lot.

    If I’m poor, and win 200 million in the lottery, will I become evil? // No reason why not, but more likely a victim.

    If I dream of becoming rich, am I already evil, /// Course not.

    or am I just dreaming of being evil? /// Two different dreams. Connected by equation only as a tendency/weakness in human affairs.

    Is wealth directly proportional to evil? /// No. some very evil poor people around. Look at your average small church pastor, nickle bag pusher, or first term congressman.

    If I’m only moderately rich, am I only moderately evil? /// Thre is an evil in pointless repetition.

    Do I become a little more evil with each dollar I bank? /// See?

    If RICH=LIARS, and I tell you I’m rich, then that means I’m actually poor, which means I was telling the truth, which means… crap I’m confused. /// Yes, thats evident. Only simple minds think in absolutes. You are surrounded by like minds.

    Easy = Peasy.

    • pedro says:

      Dumbbo=rich=liar.

      I love that new “equation” of yours

      • noname says:

        PP(pointless pedro) As if you could understand math.

        dumb=>angry=>pathetic=>pointless=>PP

        You’re more of a genetic looser without your meds!

        • pedro says:

          You don’t even know how to use math symbols, nobrain.

          • noname says:

            What math symbols PP(pointless pedro)!

            You are so dumb, it’s incredible.

            If you had a brain you would know, math symbols are used with numbers!

            You are so dumb, it’s incredible.

          • pedro says:

            You seem to like speaking to mirrors. And I thought you were trying to write a joke.

          • noname says:

            Hey PP(pointless pedro) you should really learn how to reply!

      • msbpodcast says:

        Don’t feed the troll.

        If he has nothing to contribute, fuck him…

  13. bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

    Ideas have always been better expressed by others already: “….the mathematical notion of equality is inappropriate to the description of a world where … statements of equality are always relative to an implicit standard of tolerance.”

    So sayeth the google. (Why would google say “Don’t be Evil?”)

    Evil–the heat generated by the compression of people. You feel the temperature rise with every million more.

  14. pedro says:

    Will it make any difference? I thought not.

    • noname says:

      PP(pointless pedro), no you want make a difference! You’re too dumb to make a difference!

      • pedro says:

        “no you want make a difference!”

        You’re on a dumb roll nobrain. Keep at it, we are laughing with you. No, really.

        Kumbaya brainless liberul, kumbaya.

        • noname says:

          Nice PP(pointless pedro) you’re a natural racist!

          Who is the “we” you’re referring too?

          Sounds like you are having a conversation with another one of your personalities!

          You might be more likable if you were on your meds.

  15. MartinJJ says:

    4 More expensive Obama/Romney slaves and you would have needed to invent new letters also.

  16. MikeN says:

    My apologies to those who I recommended invest in Obama with a 25-60% return, as it appears the whole investment is going to be worthless.

  17. Bob73 says:

    Is this ongoing nanowar between pedro and noname really necessary?

  18. Supreme Ultrahuman (I see the comment system is still designed for retards.) says:

    If Barry wins, the human race is fucked anyway, so it’s all a moot point.

    • MikeN says:

      Won’t happen. Romney has gotten endorsements from Manchester Union Leader, Orlando Sentinel, Tampa Tribune, Columbus Dispatch, and Lee Iacocca. Orlando, Columbus endorsed Kerry and Obama. Lee is a lifelong Democrat.

      Obama has gotten endorsements from Russell Crowe, Chavez, Castro, and Putin.

  19. soundwash says:

    -har har, another “illusion of choice”

    -It makes no difference.

    Both sides are controlled by the same corporate / policy think-tanks that install all cabinet level puppets, write all the scripted talking points for said puppets, write all our laws, plan (most of) our Lives and of course, plan all our wars 30 years (at least) in advance.

    a pointless exercise.

    -s

  20. MikeN says:

    Also endorsing Romney are Lindsey Lohan, Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, I suspect the Olsen twins will endorse next, and I believe that privately Hillary will be voting for Romney.

  21. hmeyers says:

    If Obama wanted to win this election, he would have replaced Biden with Hilary. Would have been an automatic re-election where 1 to 1.5% of the vote in key states means everything.

    I’ve always maintained Obama does not want re-elected, watch for a “fuck up” tonight.

    Even a minor “fuck up” gives Obama and Michelle complete freedom. And this is last chance Monday.

    Unless Obama has a October or even November surprise in mind.

    He doesn’t golf all the time because he wants to be president, he golfs to escape from being president. He has the fortune, the fame, the security staff for life … and the enthusiasm for the job he displayed in the first debate where he walked through the motions.
