Jesus christ, can't any of you Republicans occasionally drop an intelligent argument in these threads?

Obama doesn't have to pretend he came from nothing, because he actually did.

Corvus: muck4doo: It's as stupid as the people who get outraged by the vacations Michelle takes.

Who is outraged exactly?

Right wingers have incredible difficulty at distinguishing mild amusement from outrage. That why when we laugh at things like Mitt trying to seem like the common man but coming off as anything but they tend to think we are outraged instead of amused. I can only imagine it's a form of projection since they seem to live in a near constant state of outrage over even the most mundane things they must assume everyone else does as well.

Meh. I don't care that he owns a number of cars. I care even less about what variety they are.

I think his economic philosophy is not realistic. And... he's a warmonger.

That's kind of all I need to know about the guy.

The Mormonism, the cars, multiple homes, disingenuous behavior. They pale in comparison when it comes to the realities of war. Particularly when you think a culture of peace is key to our survival.

In other words. Who cares what a douchefark is driving? The issue is that he's a douchefark.

Mrtraveler01: C'mon man I know you're better than this.

This doesn't even outrage me, even the $10,000 bet and the "I'm unemployed just like you" gaffes didn't outrage me.

This is just another comical attempt at Mitt trying to act like an average American when he really is not.

I know he's rich and privileged and that's fine. But sometimes I wonder if Mitt does.

Exactly. That's the thing I don't think Mitt understands he is privileged. He thinks it's just as easy for everyone as it was for him. Where as people like the Kennedy's understood they were privileged and believed others needed help.

Mrtraveler01: grotto_man: Carville's a staunch Democrat so he gets immunity from this crap.

Kerry's quite a bit wealthier than Romney, and he just married into his money. Obama himself is a multimillionaire, for that matter.

Do any of these guys pretend to be average Americans who think the government is treating them unfairly in taxes?


Then STFU with that stupid comparison then.

Don't bother. They've already got it in their head that we're just jealous of the rich republicans and will attack them mercilessly while leaving the democrats alone.

My favorite out of touch Mittens moment was: "Oh, I don't know how much I made in speaking engagements last year, it wasn't that much."

It was well over $200k!!

But he's just like us guys.

He's like that rich tourist chick in "Common People".

Corvus: Romney has had a privileged lifestyle his whole life so he can't relate to the problems of most voters.

Which is why he keeps making gaffes like these. Because he can't.

He should just admit he's had a good life and should have a message that "I've had a lot of great opportunities to be successful in this country and my goal is to make sure that every American has the chance to be as successful as I am".

Instead of the phony "I'm just an average guy like you" BS he's pulling now. He should fire his campaign manager.

you are a puppet: I'm tired of this double standard where people keep pointing out when Romney screws up while trying to relate to the common man and makes repeated PR mistakes, and yet Democrats are allowed to have money and drive cars. This is bullshiat. This reminds me of when I was a kid and my mom wouldn't let me get a tattoo but she allowed my sister to eat food. Not surprisingly my mom was a liberal too. Hence the time she tried to abort me at age 10, thankfully I survived with only brain damage. Anyway vote Republican.

You are mistaking annoyance with "rich pretending to be not rich" with annoyance with "being rich." We don't care that Romney's rich. We expect anyone seriously running for president to be rich, as running takes so much money. The fact that Romney is rich doesn't bother me in the slightest. When he says things like "I know what it's like to be unemployed" and "Wanna bet $10,000?" I think it's offensive. There will always be people who are much richer than most people. That's how the world works. Romney was born rich and made himself even richer. Good for him, but he needs to stop acting like he's "the common man" and should own up to the fact he's rich, and show he cares for those who aren't. He should show a willingness to learn more about the struggles of the "average American" and figure out how to help those people. The goal of the president should be to do what he can to improve his/her country and the lives of his/her fellow Americans, from the poorest of the poor to the richest of the rich. But there are many more poor than rich in this country, and they are the ones that need the most help and improvement of their lives. Rich, poor, black, white, brown, Republican, Democrat, and every class/race/ideology/religion should work together to help themselves and everyone.

That's my rant I guess

this quote is pretty much the epitome of Romney:

"I used to have a Dodge truck, so I used to have all three [Detroit manufacturers] covered."

Anything he says and any position he takes is a calculation to make sure everything is "covered."

Crude: He's rich, get the fark over it.

At least he's not wasting the taxpayers' money taking SIXTEEN MOTHERFARKING VACATIONS IN THREE MOTHERFARKING YEARS while he farks up the country.

Seriously, Leftists, go die in a ditch immediately.

It's funny because George W Bush and Ronald Reagan both took more "vacation time" than Barack Obama in the same amount of time. I'm also pretty sure every president's "vacations" are "working vacations." Sure, they do fun stuff like golf and be with their families, but they do paperwork and make decisions and talk to their staff and everything also. I also don't want any president to die of a heart attack, shoot themselves, or make a poor decision due to burnout/exhaustion. President is one of the most stressful jobs in the world. I really don't mind if the president plays a little golf once in a while or goes to the beach with his family.

The Ford Mustang hasn't been anything other than a girl car since at least the early '80s, so unless Mittens is driving a classic Mustang I'm not impressed.

Born in a log cabin, I'm sure. I already know you think Obama is dreamy, but shouldn't you be getting mad at Romney and his two Cadillacs?
