Mitt Romney is the cancer killing America.

Those silly serfs. If only they had a small business man father who was Govenor of Michigan I could maybe empathize. And that's a strong maybe.
-Deep thoughts from Mitt Romney.

This asshole is not going to win......right?
Nate Silver correctly predicted 49 states in '08. He has Obama at a 74% of winning. I literally check this website at least once a day and credit it for much of my sanity.
Almost every election is determined by money. Look it up.
Rove's television spots have not hit the swing states in a big way yet, and he controls at least a billion dollars of SuperPAC money from big money GOP donors, which is way more than the Democrats.
Obama's numbers are good now but this race will be very close.

counterpoint: Bush was charming to most of America. He wasn't charming to me or anyone I know that I stayed friends with but...to a lot of Americans he was a fun guy who liked to blow shit up. He had a likeable demeanor that was made more folksy as he went along. Gosh shucks, I'm just tryin' to do mah best here, I'm jus a simple country president bullshit that went over well with idiots.
Romney however...Romney lacks Bush's ex car salesman personality. Bush could cozy up to you, make you feel like you were getting a deal, and that he cared. He had a folksy laugh. He liked simple pleasures, like country folk. Problem was it was all a huge facade and he was pure evil but for the image that he projected, he WAS successful at bringing that when he needed it.
Romney doesn't have anything close to that ability. He can't possibly mimic it and as much as I hate to say it, Bush did have a certain ability to persuade and charm the dickens out of many Americans. I am not convinced Romney will be able to do so because the harder he and his handlers try to convince anyone of anything, it blows up in their faces. He has no ability to charm anyone but donors. This has not failed him before but this is the presidency. America doesn't like someone looking down on them.
And many, many conservatives don't like Romney but are only going to vote for him so that they can get Obama out...unless Romney keeps opening up his flap and distances just enough of them (probably most women who don't like the idea of the Mormon church controlling their bodies 24/7). Romney isn't Bush. He's the businessman stereotype from every children's movie ever made. He hates Christmas and wants to fire everyone so they don't get bonuses. He wants to capture your pet alien. He wants to build an oil well on your community garden. He wants to take away your beer and pornography.
That one should go over well once it's publicized (if anyone thinks of it).
Rove is throwing his money into the Senate races, mark my words. Romney will go down as a "mistake".
Bush may have won then, but the voter demographic has changed since that election. I know that many young people voted, some for the first time, when Barack Obama was elected. I'm not sure that this matters, it just helps me to relax by thinking that things are different now.

I'm fond of the Republican idea that a tax refund = paying no taxes at all. While mathematically true, that money isn't stagnant before it gets sent back.
nor does that take into account any sales tax one pays, which you never get back

A lot of the YouTube comments on this make me weep for humanity.

My favorite part is where he says that poor people "believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it", but aren't really entitled to those things.
"Have we tried raising VAT and killing all the poor?"

I knew Guy Smiley was bad for America back when he tried to make a run for this the first time. Just start me on the IV drip if he gets elected.

My 'favorite' part is when he admits he has no plan to turn the economy around or pay for his upper-class tax cuts, he just assumes his election will give rich people hope and they'll invest in the economy making everything better.
Like the end of Atlas Shrugged, he sincerely believes rich people are hiding their money and the productivity they give out of fear of the communist Obama regime, and all we need to do is give them control of government and country will prosper again.
|Binro the Heretic - 2012-09-17 |
It's one thing to think Romney is some sort cartoonish rich guy who thinks he's better than everyone else and thinks of the poor as the weakest of the herd who should be starved to death.
It's quite another to have that confirmed.

ENTITLED TO FOOD
How dare these people think they can avoid starving to death
Five fucking stars for pure evil. I hope this asshole loses in a big way. God damn Moron scumbag.
I don't think you have to worry about getting those independents who might vote for someone because they like him.
"Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social service"

Koda, I'm on your side. I hate Mittens and want him to lose. I believe in maintaining a certain standard quality of life for everyone.

Everyone has a right to food and if they don't think so they should be staked to the floor of Death Valley and have buzzards peck at their goddamn eyes for a few days.

This is why you should punch anyone claiming both sides are the same and they're going to not vote like a TFL loser until all the perfect candidates come crawling to them.
|StanleyPain - 2012-09-17 |
Of course, the media is trying to compare this to Obama's "clinger" speech where he talked about people who had lost faith in government. Yes, because saying that you have to win the confidence of people who don't trust you is totally the same thing as saying you don't give a shit about half of the entire fucking country's interests.
Fuck everyone voting for this fuck. At this point, I have more respect for people voting for Ron Paul or something...
I never thought I'd agree with something like that, but it really has reached the point where Ron Paul isn't as bad as Romney.
Ron Paul actually has a fucking plan and a real platform. A garbage plan and garbage platform, but he at least can answer a question like "what's your idea" without Romney's "I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO DO BUT BOY OBAMA SURE IS A DARKIE" bullshit.

You guys should see the uncut version where he jokes that he wishes he was Latino so he could win easily, and brags about the Chinese firm he just bought (way to fight those outsourcing attack ads, Mitt!)
Now his camp is trying to say what he REALLY MEANT was that too many people have become dependent on the government thanks to Obama ruining the economy and he wants to help them.
Also, this was "candid and not elegantly spoken" so therefore it doesn't really count, which is why were just not getting it, according to them.
A definition of gaffe is when someone accidentally tells the truth.

Romney's emergency 10 PM press conference was AMAZING
God he's painful to watch, though at the same time I'm happy to see him squirm.
It was nice to see him trotted out with just the faintest coat of make-up instead of his usual double layer. He has a red nose just like grandpa!

Where does this 47% number come from? Does it include stay-at-home parents? College students? The elderly? People born into wealth? The social elite like himself that break the system to avoid paying any income tax?

I think it's interesting to compare this with Obama's "bitter" comments from 2008 which were also during a closed door fundraiser with rich donors, attempting to explain why he wasn't connecting with poor Republican and Blue Dog voters in PA.
Obama went on to list various conservative ideals that those people base their votes on (religion, guns and immigration) because they don't think voting for someone based on their economic policies will have any more effect than it has had in the past. Yes, he may have fed into stereotypes about the voters who would never vote for him, but he was also attempting to empathize with them, not demonize them.
He never blamed them for their poverty, and he never said anything close to "It's my job not to worry about those people". He didn't claim they saw themselves as victims, even as they clearly have been victims of NAFTA, globalization, venture capitalists and corrupt politicians.
Conservatives went on to bash him repeatedly for his comments, and Paul Ryan recently brought them up again, and now they're forced into the hypocrisy of defending Romney's much more egregious stereotyping of poverty stricken Democrats.

I can't wait to quit my job and get my free food, clothing, healthcare, housing, and social services. I'm serious, when all that stuff magically kicks in I'm just going to quit my job and sit in my free house, eating free snacks and play video games all day long. All we have to do is make rich people pay for it right?
