In the midst of remarks otherwise ridiculing the president’s tax record, Romney said: “I admit this, [President Obama] has one thing he did not do in his first four years — he’s said he’s going to do in the next four years, which is to raise taxes.
“The president has raised taxes on the middle class, as determined by the Supreme Court,” Romney said in August, referring to the high court’s decision to uphold Obama’s health care law based on Congress’s constitutional authority to levy taxes.
The Romney campaign offered a correction tonight.
“President Obama has raised taxes on millions of middle-class Americans during his first term in office,” spokeswoman Amanda Henneberg said in a statement. “Governor Romney was clearly communicating about an additional tax increase President Obama is proposing on American small businesses that will jeopardize over 700,000 jobs. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will stop the President’s tax increases, create 12 million new jobs, and turn our economy around.”

because Jim Demint is an awful cunthair who deserves to die and it's a good thing that he isn't in the US Senate anymore.

I am not really speaking for the nation, but if even my own experience is the one exception, your bullshit anti-republican gatekeeper talking point stuff is just not based in the real world, but rather the embellishment of a narrative that is manufactured by ruling-class think-tanks.
So, in my experience, the laboring unions are racist white people that literally use their influence to exclude blacks and mexicans, the municipal politicians and political appointments are neocon war-mongers and anti-civil rights, anti-privacy haters, and the democratic voters are largely trashy, ignorant, racist, xenophobic, sexist, "gun-loving" etc, many "conservative" shortcomings.
So if they are Democrats and say, openly oppose gay marriage, openly support executive drone programs, what does that do to your narrative?
"The argument that the two [political] parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to the doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead the two parties should be almost identical, so the that American people can 'throw the rascals out' at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy."
