Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

I wrote yesterday about David Axelrod's takedown of Mitt Romney's "cowardly" answer in which Axelrod said this "was a test of leadership" Romney failed by refusing to criticize the deeply offensive remarks of Rush Limbaugh about Sandra Fluke.    

David Axelrod:

“I was kind of shocked when Governor Romney, all he had to say was, `Well that isn’t language I would have used.’ What about the spirit of what was said? I thought that was a cowardly answer and it was a test of leadership, and one that he failed...
Axelrod Calls Out Romney's "Cowardly Answer" on Limbaugh

Well the man who promised AIPAC a war and who criticizes President Obama as weak for failing to attack, attack, attack Iran, lacks the courage to stand up to Rush Limbaugh, again. Think Progress reports Romney's latest cowardice:

Last night, at his Super Tuesday victory party in Boston, Romney was asked again for his thoughts on Limbaugh’s attacks and said only, “My campaign is about jobs and the economy and scaling back the size of government and I’m not going to weigh in on that particular controversy.”

By this point, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) — both of whom endorsed Romney — and several other Republicans, have all publicly condemned Limbaugh, but the party’s most visible leaders have not.

Mitt Romney.  Gutless wonder, except when it comes to putting working class Americans at risk in a war.  The little people are expendable.

Romney reflects much that has been wrong with this nation for decades.  The 1%, cutting taxes on the rich, willing to demogogue to be elected, and willing to send your children overseas to die, so long as their own are not at risk.

Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney on Wednesday defended his five sons' decision not to enlist in the military, saying they're showing their support for the country by "helping me get elected."

Romney, who did not serve in Vietnam due to his Mormon missionary work and a high draft lottery number, was asked the question by an anti-war activist after a speech in which he called for "a surge of support" for U.S. forces in Iraq.

CBS News, Romney: Sons Serve Country By Campaigning, February 11, 2009  

Wars, like taxes (he pays a 14% rate), are for the little people.

Limbaugh Romney before he limbaughs you.

Vote Obama 2012!  GoBama!!
