C’s for the contempt Mitt feels for folks who aren’t rich.
D is for a sham debate — Mitt’s pseudo-moderate switch.

E’s evolving policies Mitt seem to change each day.
F is for those pesky facts. For Mitt they don’t hold sway.

G’s for global warming. Mitt no longer thinks it’s real.
H is homophobia. Gay marriage he’d repeal.

I’s for immigration. Self-deporting! What a plan!
J’s for rightwing judges. Justice Roberts is Mitt’s man.

K is for the Koch Bros. Mr. Romney’s in their debt.
L’s for all the lies Mitt tells. The truth to Mitt’s a threat.

M’s Medicare and Medicaid. Mitt screws the old and poor.
N’s for Romney’s negative campaign, fact-challenged to its core.

O’s for Mitt’s Olympics and the bailout Mitt secured.
P is for Paul Ryan’s plan. Mitt’s keeping it obscured.

R’s for regulations. Mitt is anti … also for.

S is Social Security — Mitt pretends he wants to save.
T is tax cuts for the rich, which Romney donors crave.

U’s the unemployment that Mitt Romney helped create.
V is all those varmints Romney killed … and maybe ate.

W’s for lots of foreign wars. Mitt’s spoiling for a fight.
X is for your ballot mark. Be sure to do it right.

Y’s for “Yes, we can” make sure the President prevails.
And Z’s for right-wing zealots. I look forward to their wails.

    Right on.
    I think I could tape your A-Z verse to my wrist and debate Mitt myself. With a little help from Biden, “That’s a bunch of malarky!” and simply recite one of your A-Z verse’s and a little nose thumbing monkey shines should precipitate one of his super-silly-ous remarks; “Where’d all this water come from?” Huh? OMG! Oh well, it is what it is.

    “Yes we can!” and we will, especially with Mitt and the Boy-Kid shoot’n themselves in the foot every time they lie.
    What about the Boy-Kid’s class pictures? Ask your self this question, do I want this guy as a potential President of the Unites States? Tell the truth now!
    Love y’all, Obama-Biden all the way!!!

    Think you could turn this into song?
    Hmm. Who was it who wanted to ditch Big Bird? …
    Here is a quandary; can we save Sesame Street without the Alphabet?

    Am sending Mad’s exquisite Alpha Verse around. A-Z hooked most topical issues impeccably, even elegantly. Here’s my 2 kopeks~~Could “F” be for 47%? If “C” is for cuts [tax], then “T” could be for Tea Pty…birthers & truthers & “Welchers”? We need to honor the Welchers [Jack & Co’s paranoia of BLS unemployment #s]. This was Shrum’s suggestion & most of us are vomitville w/conservative paranoia about polls & other figures being fuddled w/…ALL OF A SUDDEN [but not under Bush or before]. Call ’em what they are.
