Romney Is An Embarrassment And A Disappointment-Bruce Willis

Published May 22, 2012 by luchidotcom

Bruce Willis lays into Mitt Romney in a new interview with Esquire, calling the Republican presidential candidate a “disappointment” and an “embarrassment.”

The Die Hard star, who in the past has been vocal in his support for Republicans, tells the mag, “He’s just such a disappointment, an embarrassment. Chin up, hair up. He’s just one of those guys, one of those guys who says he’s going to change everything.”

Willis continues, “And he’ll get in there, and they’ll smile at him and introduce themselves: ‘We’re Congress, we make sure nothing changes.’ He won’t do it. He can’t.”

Nor is he too kind to the president.

“Everybody wants to be Barack Obama, says Obama, “And what did he change?”

Asked if he thinks Romney will win the election, the actor states, “No. Nah. I don’t really care.”

Willis goes on to mock the politician, deeming him “the Dash Riprock of the Republican party,” referring to the egotistical, image-obsessed character from The Beverly Hillbillies.

What do you think of Willis’ comments about Romney

What Time Magazine Said About President Goodluck Jonathan

Published April 20, 2012 by luchidotcom

Time Magazine released it’s list of Most influential People,2012.

Amongst the names was our was very own President Goodluck jonathan.
According to Time Magazine “they are the people who inspire us, entertain us, challenge us and change our world.”

Well despite Jonathan’s unpopularity in Nigeria since the Jan 1 subsidy removal incident,Time Magazine was all praise for him.

Read below:

••Goodluck Ebele Azikiwe Jonathan exemplifies the African political renaissance at a time when the people of the continent are starting to reap the fruit of their resources and their hard work. President Jonathan, 54, possesses the qualities needed at this moment of great challenges, having come to power at a crucial moment in the history of Nigeria. The country has grown out of its past of corruption, mismanagement and brutality, but the foundation of good governance is still fragile.

In two short years, President Jonathan has shown the same dexterity he demonstrated as governor of Bayelsa, the same ability to find the remedies to the many complexities of running a nascent democracy. He has spearheaded the fight against corruption and turned Nigeria into an example of good governance. He has also made a significant impact on consolidating peace and security in West Africa. From the onset of our own crisis, Liberia has benefitted from the support of Nigeria. President Jonathan not only upheld the trend but added to it. With leaders like President Jonathan, Africa is sure to move toward prosperity, freedom and dignity for all of its people.

In the light of everyday bombings and the abuse of human rights and lives during the subsidy removal protest,do you think he is worthy to be in that list?

Finally the sentencing of a once thieving governor is ended but one cannot forget the drama that unfolded in court during the sentencing.

James Onanefe,a former governor of Delta State,was yesterday sentenced to 13 years in prison at the South Crown court in London on charges of corruption.

Sasha Wass,QC,prosecuting told the court “Ibori deliberately and systematically defrauded the people he was chosen to represent.

His looting was/is epic so was the testimony of John Fashanu(former English premier league footballer)who took to the witness box to testify on behalf of Ibori.
Am sure half the people,if not all present in court would have had a belly laugh at Fashanu’s comical testimonies.
Read below for some of them:

•During Ibori’s time as governor he was responsible for building I9 mini sports stadia and three Olympic sized stadia in Delta state, one of which is where JJ Okocha was discovered…..(Joker since ibori became governor in 1999 and okocha began playing professionally before 1996)

• Ibori built the first shooting range in Nigeria…boy!!what business do we have with a shooting range?how does that address half the problems plaguing the state during his tenure?

•Ibori’s lawyer said his client played a part in supporting British industry even before he became governor. As evidence, he cites a letter from British Airways, thanking Ibori for restoring direct flights between Nigeria and Britain…are these people for real?seriously???

Before sentencing ibori, the judge said that ibori’s properties will be confiscated though he didn’t mention if the monies realized will be returned to the Nigerian government.

Due to Fashanu’s comical testimony a trending topic was formed on twitter.

Do you think 13 years is enough for ibori?

Checkout out the hash tags for some yesterdays epical tweets in the pictures below and tell me what you think of Fashanu.
