smooshie: Quick, summon the Romney Whisperer!

whisper: "..love Reagan's cock..."

Romney: "The important thing here, Tim, is that I love Reagan's cock."

WorldCitizen: Anyone who makes it in modern American sound bite politics isn't going to be the most authentic person ever. That's really more the fault of the short attention spanned, shallow, uninformed voting (or non-voting) American public. However, at least I have seen where Obama has sat down with people and had free flowing discussions that were very "normal," laid back, and seemingly coherent real answers to their questions. Anyone have any footage of Romney doing this? I sure haven't seen any signs of this yet.

So you're blaming America for not being able to choose a real candidate? There were a couple on the Democratic side. Honest and filled with integrity. They got no support. The establishment wins again. Your best hope is Edwards. At least you've seen him making himself pretty for the audience.

Gregory F. Stuart: In this time of Congressmen and Judges playing fast-and-loose with the law, we need a President who is going to put his foot down and say no, he won't let his unilateral executive power be usurped by a bunch of libbies.

Vote Romney, Huckabee, or (especially) Giuliani.

You deserve it.

America deserves it.


America may very well deserve it (especially after electing shiathead TWICE), but that doesn't mean that I'm going to be one of the people who help make it happen. :)

Slip of the tongue; I watched him say it.

IronTom: Not that I'm a fan of Mitt, but the quote was sort of taken out of context, but unfortunately it sure came out as a sound bite.

Um, in context its not much better:

Q: But why not tell the voters of Florida and across the country how much of your own wealth you're spending, so they can make a judgment and factor that into their own decision?

A: Well, I'm not concerned about the voters. I'm much more concerned about the other guys on this stage. And we have some competitive information that we make sure that we use for our own benefit.


He is being asked whether he thinks voters have a right to know how much of his campaign money is out of pocket.

Now maybe they do. Maybe they don't. The point is, Mitt just told us he doesn't care if the public does have that that right, because he's facing some tough competition right now.

Slice that any way you like: that's a strange thing to say in an election for public office.

Also, what difference does it make how much money Romney has put into the campaign itself? Would you ask 'how much money have you raised this quarter, Mr. Huckabee? Hmmm?' Poor question meant to attack him on a wealth-envy issue in an attempt to inject class warfare into the Republican primary.

So why wouldn't he answer the question?

It would have been nice if he had asked the other candidates how much money PACs and special interest groups had donated to his campaign. Or corporations.

Fart_Machine: So why wouldn't he answer the question?

For the reason he stated; it would give the other candidates an unfair advantage in terms of how they spend their money relative to him.

That would have been a clutch answer!

Because Russert doesn't actually ask real, meaningful questions. Russert is concerned with playing little gotcha games. That, and if he'd asked Huckabee, the former governor would have simply pulled out the bag of nickels that his campaign has been surviving on.

Yeah, that's right. Vote Republican, guys. Those damn liberals don't know what the hell they're doing, and they've been screwing up this country for too long!

Please, vote Republican.

I can't wait for America to fail. I'm going to love watching you suffer.

/Vote Republican in 2008: because Americans deserve it.


Gregory F Stuart

I would rather you consider Giuliani, Romney, or Huckabee. Any of those would make a fine authoritarian, a strong leader, which is just what America needs right now.

In this time of Congressmen and Judges playing fast-and-loose with the law, we need a President who is going to put his foot down and say no, he won't let his unilateral executive power be usurped by a bunch of libbies.

Vote Romney, Huckabee, or (especially) Giuliani.

You deserve it.

America deserves it.

I promise.


And again from a different thread...Gregory F Stuart

Keep voting Republican. PLEASE.

I want America to fail, and I want you morons to suffer.

SO KEEP. VOTING. REPUBLICAN.

Because, trust me, you deserve it.


We get it. Ok? You hate America and Americans who voted for Republicans helped fark up our country.

Captain Obvious has apparently not flown by your house recently.

But the point is...we get it

So stop copying and pasting the same bullshiat over and over again and try to have more than one original thought.

Ron Paul! Who are you voting for? Why do you hate the constitution? The 9/11 "planes" were holograms!

BravadoGT: "Vote Ron Paul-he cares about us! No, not YOU, Jew! Or YOU, ya homo. The REST of us..."

Just Fark You. Ron Paul follows the economics of the Mises Institute, for one. He likes Jewish people (and 'homos', as you said) just as much as every other Person.

Falcc: It's not like it's grossly out of context or anything. He was saying that he's not willing to reveal his campaign finance situation until he's legally required to in order to keep voters uninformed. It's not like he didn't mean what he said, he just didn't mean to say it.

Uh, NO. I hate Mitt Romney but the record should be set straight. He meant he wasn't concerned about the voters knowing what he spent (that's the part he left out and it was obviously implied from the previous sentence), he didn't want to say because of the other candidates.

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
 
2008-01-26 03:46:17 AM  
Also, I should point out that, as much as I point out to people how much I hate America, and that voting Republican would further my own personal aims to see America lying in ruins with its pathetic, idiotic citizenry enslaved or worse -- even with as much as I point out that, by voting Republican, they are helping my own personal goal of making America fall --

they still vote Republican.

And why shouldn't they? Americans ought to get the kind of leadership they deserve.

So vote Republican, because it's the American thing to do.

In context, it's 78% as bad as it is out of context.

F that commie biatch.

Yeah, I heard that on C-Span this morning and thought it was dumb as hell. His whole excuse is that if he says how much he donates to himself, his rivals will use that to attack him because it makes him look like a jackass. Too late for that one, pal, you just did it yourself.

Yes, I am 100% blaming America for no being able to choose a real candidate. At least half of Americans are distracted by shiny objects (in this case, sound bites, looks, polished slogans made to appeal to their shallow ideas based on ignorance of issues), and that's about all it takes to elect idiots, plastics and/or authoritarians to office.

He told you that, did he? Was it when he whispered "good night" in your ear as he tucked you into bed?

Because years of his own, documented comments suggests otherwise...

Hey Greg -- lighten up, dude. Have a beer, relax. You sound a little insane.

Exactly this. Spending and money reserves play an important role in the strategic planning of a campaign. I don't like it, but knowing how much money your rivals have left will affect your own campaign spending.

Some people really don't know how to put a statement in context. If Romney had said "I love children" during the debate I swear Fark would have an endless thread condemning him as a pederast.
