stoli n coke: mat catastrophe: So, subby has apparently not noticed that the GOP has had to be dragged kicking and screaming toward nominating R-Money?

Don't worry. They're already claiming that they liked Rmoney the whole time. Even when they were so desperate to get anyone but Romney, that they made Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich serious contenders.



Good point!

Are you stalking me?

He may be pro-choice and pro-gay marraige but at least he's not a commie. Tea partiers can compromise. They'll take a Blue Dog Democrat over Obama.

jjorsett: How do you like your nominee now, Teabaggers?

When compared to Obama? A whole whole lot. By the way, most Tea Partier's main issues are the economy and taxes, not illegal immigration.


Bullshiat - that's hilarious. Most 'baggers don't even care that much about taxes - they refuse to acknowledge that they're paying less than were paid in the 1950s or under God Reagan. The only reason that they believe they're overtaxed is that this is what Roger Ailes and Grover Norquist program them to whine about.

In actuality, they're almost entirely consumed with imposing Social Darwinism and pseudo-"Christian" values (i.e., Prosperity Gospel).

I am related to hundreds of Appalachian Teabaggers who are completely oblivious to how much tax that they actually pay - ask them what the numbers are that are deducted from their paychecks (at least the ones who work - lots are on SSDI, and the older ones on union disability),and they couldn't guess within a hundred dollars. No, all they care about is their butthurt insecurity, and they want everyone in the country and the culture to cater to them because they're "The REAL American" who keep us safe from the socialist hordes.

You'd think someone as rich as Romney could afford advisors who aren't total dumbasses

LarryDan43: FlashHarry: between this and the etch-a-sketch comment, his advisors have pretty much admitted what we all already know - that mitt will say anything to get elected and that he has no convictions whatsoever. he just really, really, REALLY wants to be president.

My question to Mitt would be, Why? Santorum wants to take the country in a more Christian direction, Ron Paul wants to change the monetary structure. Newt wants to cap off his long political career with, "the big one". But I can't figure out why Romney wants to be president? By listening to him you might conclude that he wants to be President to reverse everything single thing Obama has done (bring Bin Laden back from the dead?), but that doesn't sound like the real reason.



Simple answer: Daddy issues.

CapnBlues: wedding vegetables: Mitt Romney is insincere? someone get me my fainting couch.

RandomExcess: What a candidate believes is not as important as what he does. He is not elected to rule, but to govern. Funny how people have forgotten that little nugget.

what a candidate believes is a good indication as to what he will do, or try to do, if elected. it's why only the nuttiest of holier-than-thou nutters voted seriously for Santorum.

actually, from a psychological perspective, the best predictor of future behavior is past behavior. Attitudes and behaviors only have about a r=.30 correlation, meaning that about 9% of the variability in any given behavior can be accounted for by the attitude associated with that behavior. It's called the fundamental attribution error.

that is interesting, thanks.

not sure if lying or sarcasm.

Igor Jakovsky: "Teabaggers" never liked this guy, subby. They wanted a Santorum, Bachman or Perry type.


The problem is, they were never able to focus on a single candidate for too long before each one put his/her foot in his/her mouth and then shot his/her foot repeatedly.

I like this one from Bill Maher:

"New Rule If you were a Republican in 2011, and you liked Donald Trump, and then you liked Michele Bachmann, and then you liked Rick Perry, and then you liked Herman Cain, and then you liked Newt Gingrich ... you can still hate Mitt Romney, but you can't say it's because he's always changing his mind."

/And the bottom line is, they may not like him, but they're stuck with him as the nominee, and he's stuck with them, since he still has to find a derpy enough running mate to keep them happy.

As compared to Obama, who has openly said things that liberals now shriek with indignation when you suggest he actually meant what he said.

I mean just because Obama openly said that he had a plan to destroy the private health insurance industry and create socialized medicine is no reason to think that his health care bill might have been the first step in the long sought after complete and total control of your life that Democrats want. SEIU is one of the biggest promoters of socialized medicine and they're some of Obama's biggest supporters, but remember, Obama totally isn't trying to create a socialized medical system, you're just being a racist and a hater when you suggest he is.

DozeNutz: Romney = Tea Party? hardly. Tea Party = constitutionalists.

Not all tea parties are the same, but you can at least count on the constitution being upheld as a base principle for them.


I agree. Out of the bill of rights, the Tea Party only hates the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th amendments.

This About That: You mean your small gummint and lower taxes guy turned out to be a rich guy in bed with corporate interests who will sell you and your vote cheap? You got what you deserved, teabaggers. Now turn off that AM radio and that Murdoch-owned news channel and do some research. Just might be you screwed yourself.


They're Republicans. They always screw themselves.

Don't worry, Romney will just mutter something about socialism and they'll be on board.

Sid_6.7: DozeNutz: Tea Party = constitutionalists.

The Tea Party loves the Constitution, especially the first ten amendments. They never seem to recall the existence of all the subsequent amendments, though...


And there's a bit of the first they're not real thrilled with.

And not all of them are on board with the fourth, either.

You want to be president you do not get to HAVE personal opinions. Your opinions are public property, and you should tell people what the fark they are.

Their main issue is Obama, as you've just clearly pointed out.

Hell, I wish Obama was trying for socialized medicine. ACA helps a bit, and it's more than anybody else has done, but it's a Band-Aid on the jugular vein.

Hobodeluxe: one of the most impressive features of the Romneybot 2012 model is that he can hold all positions on every issue at the same time, Depending on the audience he determines which position to espouse. It's a very impressive feature.

"For I am Saruman the Wise, Saruman Ring-maker, Saruman of Many Colours!'

I looked then and saw that his robes, which had seemed white, were not so, but were woven of all colours, and if he moved they shimmered and changed hue so that the eye was bewildered.

I liked white better,' I said.

White!' he sneered. 'It serves as a beginning. White cloth may be dyed. The white page can be overwritten; and the white light can be broken.'

In which case it is no longer white,' said I. 'And he that breaks a thing to find out what it is has left the path of wisdom.' - Gandalf"

The only people I ever see bringing up Obama's race are his ideological soulmates. It must be the only characteristic of his that you can perceive.

The Tea Party members were concerned during the Bush years as well and were complaining as individuals. It was Obama's amping up the spending and corporate welfare to Warp Speed and screwing up the economy that finally got us to organize.

Anybody outside Romney's inner circle who think they know where Romney stands on an issue is deluded.

He doesn't ever talk about what he believes and when he does talk he is on both sides of everything.

Voting for Romney at this point would be the moral equivalent of voting for "Pick a name out of the Salt Lake City phone book"
