SevenizGud: America, where you get to apologize for your success.


No apology necessary, but no over generalizations allowed either. And the party that calls a kid who went to college on a scholarship worked his ass off to become editor of the Harvard law review, and then turned down extremely lucrative offers at white-shoe Law firms in order to follow his own path in and try to improve a blighted US city an "Elitist" Does NOT get to then trumpet how the son of a politically powerful multi-millionaire who was handed the reigns of an investment company right after getting his Harvard MBA is a self-made "common man"

George Carlin once remarked that he kept his sanity by fostering a detached view of American lunacy. To him, the great freakshow of American life was entertainment to be consumed; not be taken seriously. He truly felt that we're doomed as a country and as a species.

With that in mind, just imagine the entertainment value of working class Americans voting into the presidency a man who:

1. Made a fortune destroying our manufacturing base as well as middle class people's lives.

2. Belongs to a whackjob cult that was started by a known conman.

3. Intends to decimate social safety nets in the midst of a bad recession, while making our current tax system even more favorable to the oligarchy.

The hilarity alone is worth the price of admission! A vote for Romney is a vote for entertainment! Riots, fuel shortages, increased poverty, violence. We're talking Emmy award winning television here folks.

The success part doesn't bother me even a little. He's rich. Good for him. Most politicians are wealthy, and I'm OK with that. It's the lying part that burns my a$$.

Mitt constantly claims to be one of the common folk, and it's a lie large enough to be an insult in its own right. I, for one, grow weary of Mitt's constant patronizing. It's condescending as hell, and incredibly demeaning to the middle class.

Mitt has absolutely no idea as to the sacrifices we middle class have to make. When Mitt claims to be one of us it's like he's trying to steal our suffering too. He didn't pay his dues, so he don't get to sing the blues. Romney needs to stop lying through his expensively capped, ivory white teeth, fire his campaign manager. and STFU.

No, he should apologize for being a bad person, in a cult, with terrible plans, a horrible record, and a shiatty sense(even for a rich guy) of what life is like for most of America who don't employ a private rectum wiper.

To apologize for success, he would have to actually, like, do something that just having shiat piles of money can't do for itself automatically.

Jim_Callahan: Romney seems to think that literally every single person in the US making fun of him means that he needs to try to relate directly to the average person. I'm pretty sure that has cause and effect exactly backward, his attempts to "relate" are the reason we make fun of him-- if he'd man up and just be basically honest we'd stop mocking him. Albeit maybe it's better for him if we think he's funny than if he's actually running on his policies...


Something like that. I'm getting almost embarrassed for him. It's like "Mitt, it's not your money per se everyone has trouble with. Hell, lots of wealthy people are respected in America: Bill Gates, Warren Buffett--even the Kennedys. It's your constant attempts to pretend you understand poverty when everyone knows you don't, and your awkward attempts to fit in in places you clearly feel out of place that we have issues with. You're like George Bush 'clearing brush' on his Crawford Ranch to look all folksy and manly--it doesn't work. Do something you're comfortable with, with people you actually like, then you might not wedge your foot so far into your mouth."

Of course, that's where he laughs about putting people out of work, so maybe that's not going to help any.

o5iiawah: Headso: o5iiawah: Get over yourself with the Romney war on the the middle class. I dont claim to fellate him and think he's your run of the mill statist but all of the Bain horror stories came from time periods where he wasn't even at the company or were told by unnecessary middle managers or union bosses who got booted out of the companies that were going tits up anyways.

Maybe you should look at his tax plan before you start tying to convince people that he isn't planning on continuing attacking the middle class if he is elected. I also don't believe your claim that every company Romney was involved in liquidating had no hopes of profitability otherwise.

Bain didn't liquidate companies.

A failing company or a company needing a cash injection would contact Bain. As Bain is putting up their money in the interest of keeping a company profitable, they will usually invest under the condition of management control and/or percentage ownership of the company. it is in their best interest for a company to succeed.

They dont just walk into a successful neighborhood factory, buy it, force them at gunpoint to take out billions in loans which they then funnel over to Bain, then fold the company. Companies which are turning profits and doing well dont seek to give up management control and percentage ownership of the company just for grins and giggles.

you should probably stop getting your talking points from disgruntled union bosses as to how this whole business thingy actually works. Some companies didn't work out. Others did. Nobody is interested in interviewing the guy who works at Staples who put his kid through college.

As far Mitt's tax proposal goes (again, not shilling for him)

-Make permanent, across-the-board 20 percent cut in marginal rates
-Maintain current tax rates on interest, dividends, and capital gains
-Eliminate the Death Tax
-Eliminate taxes for taxpayers with AGI below $200,000 on interest, dividends, and capital gains
-Cut the corporate rate ...


Hey folks, for the record, you can pretty much just automatically ignore anyone who calls the estate tax a "death tax."

imontheinternet: The days of Republican party discipline and Reagan's 11th commandment are gone. I think the radicals in the House would turn on Romney right out of the gate, and even if they didn't, the Democrats would keep enough of the Senate to block anything too extreme.

A Republican supermajority would be a disaster, unless you subscribe to the "run it into the ground so we'll be forced to try something different" school of thought, which is admittedly getting more attractive each day. But, there is virtually a zero chance of that happening. The Republicans are wildly unpopular, especially with women, and they'll most likely lose seats, rather than gain.

In the end, I think Romney would be a completely empty suit. His handlers would tell him to sign something, and he'd sign it, no questions asked. Obama would sign it, too, but he'd try to get it watered down a bit before he did. Obama may be the best choice, but that really farking sucks.


Oh, of course they'd turn on Romney. And Romney would turn right back, signing anything that crosses his desk in the hopes of regaining their loyalty.

Most analysts have been pointing out the number of people up for reelection, the relative safeness of their seats, and the "Enthusiasm Gap" poll results. General consensus seems to be:
If Romney picks a non-moronic vp and doesn't go pants on the head retarded, Obama wins, Senate remains about the same, and Republicans pick up a single digit number of House seats.
If Romney picks a Palin, Democrats pick up a half dozen Senate seats and 1-2 dozen House seats.

The key for the Republicans is that they have to excite their supporters enough that they go out and vote but not scare the moderates and leftists enough that THEY go out and vote.

I'm not saying your graph is full of shiat, but I have doubts that the US government gave half a million to Obama's campaign.

The graphs probably total the contributions of people who work for those companies (or the government), rather than donations from the organizations themselves.

That would mean the graph doesn't mean shiat if it's going to lump people by employer instead of the employer itself.


Correct - it is intentionally designed to imply that both are receiving massive donations from enormous corporations. A viewer would assume this means they would both be beholden to those interests, therefore both sides are bad.

If the graph includes donations by individuals, however, and does not show the percentage of donations between individuals and the companies themselves, it is useless at best and misleading at worst.

Romney's not afraid to ignore his advisers and take the bull by the ears. As was pointed out ealier, he didn't like his advisers' Detroit speech so he wrote his own (NPR story from the weekend, I can't find a link). It sucked. Because he just isn't that talented or smart. I mean, he's not a dolt. But his success stems primarily from having the good fortune of being born to George Romney. And he probably works pretty hard, woo-hoo, so does his gardener. But it wasn't talent that got Mittens where he is today.


Oh, of course not. Mitt really has no talent. When you grow up in that kind of privilege, you don't have the ambition to really break free of the easy life. But I didn't know that Mitt was negating his advisors. That explains a lot about his campaign, and really comes off as being Sarah Palinish: not only does he know best, he knows that being 'honest' will always win the day. Except when it completely wrecks everything.

This only means that MItt will make plenty of more mistakes before he has a presence of mind to ask for help...two days before the election.

Not to always bring this back to his religion, but a fair number people have noted that Romney's campaign style is very close to the way Mormons train their missionaires to interact with potential recruits. First and foremost missionaries are taught to break the ice with people by finding some sort of commonality with them no matter how strained or remote.

And if there's one thing we Fisherman know, its patience, Am I right? Kinda like the patience Joseph Smith showed when he..."

You're absolutely right. Mitt has that air of 'I'm going to convince you whether you like it or not' attitude that a lot of pushy religious types have. You know, the kind that comes off as both not listening at all and a completely sleazy salesperson. I don't get the con artist part of his spiel as much as the 'pathetic' part, however. But in either case, we're dealing with someone who thinks they are smarter than they actually are. I don't see how it's even possible for him to cater to the moderates at this point, or if he even thinks he has to. The hubris coming off of this asshole is legendary. At this point we're just going to be waiting for those little moments of insanity to bubble up. I wonder if he'll suspend his campaign to 'save' the economy...?
