Apparently, in 2012, minority voters just did not connect with the Republican message of ‘STOP THIEF!’

It’s official! Politicians, bloggers, newspapers, and writers all over the States are taking notice of the growing influence of Asian Americans on American politics. Usually, when politicians talk about “the minority group”, they’re usually referring to the large Hispanic and African-American minority, but according to this article and others like it, it’s high time they considered Asian Americans with a heavier weight. Compared to 20 years ago, Asian-Americans seem to have made a drastic, significant shift over from the Republicans to the Democratic camp. More than 70% of Asian Americans voted Democratic in this election.

Hey Romney, guess you should have been a little less anti-China and a little more pro-Asian Americans, huh?

Yes, we are! :D

Governor Romney: I created the TV Show ‘Friday Night Lights’ and came up with the phrase ‘Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can’t Lose.’ I was not thrilled when I saw that you have plagiarized this expression to support your campaign … Your politics and campaign are clearly not aligned with the themes we portrayed in our series. … Please come up with your own campaign slogan.

Mitt Romney showing his usual amount of depth.

With Hurricane Isaac heading towards the site of the 2012 Republican National Convention, presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney today called for the government to respond with a round of “emergency tax cuts.”

“If this hurricane is as powerful as predicted, it could destroy many people’s second and third homes,” Mr. Romney said. “In that worst-case scenario, it would be inhumane to ask them to pay more than thirteen percent.”

Vice presidential pick Paul Ryan echoed Mr. Romney’s sentiments, adding that he was glad he voted to cut emergency relief earlier this year because “big government needs to stay out of hurricanes.”

“If the Federal government got involved with this hurricane, they’d make the usual mistake of sending food, water, and medical supplies,” he said. “Clearly, what this situation calls for is vouchers.”

An un-Mitt-igated disaster wherever he goes.
