“Don’t look at me, I’m just here to lower my taxes”

In his latest thumb-less effort at slight-of-hand, Mitt Romney explains to you that a President does not do much other than cut rich people’s taxes, screw the poor, and bomb Iran:

“Recognize this [abortion rights] is the decision that will be made by the Supreme Court,” he said. “The Democrats try and make this a political issue every four years, but this is a matter in the courts. It’s been settled for some time in the courts.”

I mean, just because at present there are four justices determined to eliminate Roe v. Wade and the next justice will tip the balance doesn’t mean who’s President has anything to do with it, it’s not like the President appoints ’em, right Mitt?

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
