Grover Norquist Says Obama Won by Characterizing Romney as a 'Poopy Head': VIDEO


Grover Norquist, founder of Americans for Tax Reform, spoke with CBS This Morning about the approaching "fiscal cliff" and the election, but it's Norquist's use of a term to describe Mitt Romney that's getting all the attention

“The president was elected on the basis that he was not Romney and that Romney was a poopy-head and you should vote against Romney...“[Obama] won by two points, but he didn’t make the case for higher taxes and higher spending. He kind of sounded like the opposite.”

  2. Biggest poopy head of all, and I don't know why anyone bothers to ask his opinion on anything.

  3. Dear Grover, it's easy to be a poopy-head when you have your head up your ass.

  4. This is terrific news! As long as GOP-bobbleheads continue to think this way, we'll see another Democrat victory in 2016.

    I mean, it should be obvious - romney lost because he pandered to the stupidest and most bigoted people in America. He lost the moderates. His own party went into crazytalk about immigrants, grown men who couldnt' stop talking about rape as a"God's plan", and millions (MILLIONS) spent trying to convince America that the gay community are planning to get married in their church while they give your sons AIDS. or something.

    that's why Obama won.

    the GOP, once again, firmly cemented itself on the wrong side of history on NUMEROUS positions.

    the GOP hoped that America was as bigoted and unintelligent as their base - and America proved them wrong. Again.

    and they're too arrogant to see it. oh, darn.

  5. Let's just keep in mind that this is the guy that had ALL republicans literally sign onto his agenda or warned them that he'd work to get them ousted if they didn't.

    Basic blackmail.

    Very sinister man and probably the biggest poopy-head of all.

  8. Having used that phrase several times, generally in the context of children and dogs, I really never thought I would hear it come out of someone else's mouth. Sooo weird.

  10. 1. Grubby is reversing the facts: Romney totally ran as not-Obama.

    2. Grubby brains have turned to poop.

  11. Not only are Republicans idiots, they're infantile idiots. Poopy head? No, Grover, honey, Romney lost because he was a bad candidate, ran a bad campaign and failed to gain the confidence of the majority of voters. Flip that assessment to a positive note and you have why Mr. Obama won reelection.

    Grover, honey, you are a nasty, mean, coercive, subversive prick. The country is facing financial crises because of the GOP and because of your fear-mongering and electoral blackmail.

    We shouldn't even be having a conversation about raising taxes on those who make a million dollars or more by 1% or even 5%. That should be not even up for discussion. It should be done. Period.

    But, the GOP is still held hostage by reprobates like you and the radical religious extremists (aka as the American Taliban) and We The People just ain't about that, Grover.

    We are a sane, sensible, fair-minded, tolerant people. We understand what needs to be done to turn this country around after nearly three decades of failed Republican economic, social and governing philosophies.

    Your side lost, Grover, because, bluntly, frankly, and to keep it as adolescent as your comment about "poopy head", your side sucks.

  12. He's determined to get back at everyone who's ever made fun of him for being named "Grover Norquist". These wingnuts are really sore losers.

    The more you appear to come from an alternative universe the more likely you are to be interviewed on TV.

    It seems the Democratic goal has to be to pin the failure to compromise on the Republicans - doesn't seem that it will be that hard to do. Taking Herr Norquist as an example, the Republicans are not very likeable.

  13. Grover Norquist practices voodoo economics. There is no sound economic thinking that supports his refusal to raise taxes on the rich under ANY circumstances. It's basic elasticity/inelasticity. Generally, most taxes on the richest rich are already SOOO low that to raise them even substantially would not affect the economy negatively. Meanwhile, giving continued handouts to the richest rich (via artificially-low taxes) is an OUTRAGEOUS expenditure in light of the national budgetary deficit.

    Further, Romney lost this election BECAUSE OF Grover Norquist. Romney's late-game moderate face would have sold the American people had Romney not been so obviously lying, having in fact VERY PUBLICLY SOLD HIS SOUL to Grover Norquist and cronies bent on handing even MORE of the country to the richest rich on a silver platter, licked clean by Republican lapdogs. The 47% tape anyone?!!

    I'm with little Kiwi: Good, let these fools believe that Romney lost because he's just a "poopyhead." If they REALLY believe that, the Republican party might just crumble within the decade. :---).

  14. "Poopy head"?


    Did he get his brain swapped with a 5 year old or something?

  15. OMG - leaving aside the crap that he spouts, that voice rivals that of Truman Capote's for gay sound!

  16. If the Republicans are so smart about the economy why did they fail so spectacularly during the Bush/Cheney years???

    And what was the difference between Romney and Bush's economic plan? No difference, just don't tax the rich and everything will be fine (for the rich, who are the only ones who matter).

    I guess the voters heard that last part even though it was whispered at a private meeting when Romney addressed the rich.

  17. If he's so interested in politics, why doesn't he run for political office?

  18. They WANT Obama to fail. And this is sad. Just shows how greedy and selfish republicans are.

  19. Repeal the GOP in 2014!

  20. Grover has always been one of my favorite Muppets.

    He is guided by the unseen hand of the plutocrats.

    He sounds like he is making sense, but he isn't.

    He, like his economics, is very fuzzy.

    But shouldn't he be red, like Elmo, and not blue?

  21. this wingnut missed his real calling of a comedian because Romney did NOT need any help being a "poopy head" He was quite successful by his stupid, backwards, hateful and thoughtless statements way too numerous to mention

  24. There is no place for authoritarian types like Grover Norquist in a democracy.

  25. The same can be said of Rick, Jason, Little Kiwi, Jackfkntwist, Betty, Francis and all the authoritarian ideological types who post on this site.
