Romneybot is probably stuck in an infinite loop somewhere in his source code.

Because the "Abort, Retry, Ignore" choice has the retry option as the base setting.

No, any headline that makes fun of a conservative has a high probability of being greened, regardless of whether or not there is any truth in it. Sometimes these things are funny, but this one is just stupid.

You have got to be the most persecuted person I've ever met.

You could have fun with it instead of being all butthurt all the time.

Pretty soon he will run adds attacking Romney, because he's always copying Obama.

Maybe when the GOP stops nominating braindead rejects and trying to pass shiatty laws that further fark the country up, things will change.

But they wouldn't be the GOP anymore if they did things correctly.

Enjoy your butthurt. We all are.

Wow, persecution complex much? Here, let me help:
any headline that makes fun of a conservative pretty much anything has a high probability of being greened, regardless of whether or not there is any truth in it. Sometimes these things are funny, but this one is just stupid.

Romney did tell Townhall Thursday that they would be "positive."

Then they won't be anywhere near bat sh@t crazy enough for the readers of TownHall.
 
2012-05-17 04:35:57 PM
Will be a tad awkward if he doesn't get the Romnomination
 
2012-05-17 04:37:33 PM
Romney isn't falling for the liberal trap of running against Obama. He knows that all he needs to do is get more votes than Gingrich in November to become Republican President.
 
2012-05-17 04:40:00 PM
They forgot to do a search&replace on Gingrich. Not to worry, it will be fixed by the next news cycle.

I saw some Mitt Romney ad in Florida yesterday that was basically some dude saying Mitt Romney saved his daughter's life by searching for her or some such thing. Seemed really BS-ey to me.

Romney can be called a lot of things. Braindead is not one of them.

That's why half of today's (or any day's) links are HotAir, Townhall, NewsBusters and random conservative blogs, right?

/I don't get what this headline is referring to either

Yeah he "saved" her. What they didn't tell you was she was just staying with a boyfriend.

It would be much more entertaining if we had a Hunger Games format for the Presidency.

The reality of it was he "saved" her by letting his employee (girls dad) go to New York and pick her up at her boyfriends house. His heroism is that Mitt let the father get out of working to attend to a family matter. This act of heroism is what many might call human.

She had to learn to use her own bootstraps.

Of course they're positive ads.

He's positive that Obummer is a sekret mooslim soshulist usurper gay lovin' nazi.

And he's pretty sure Obummer is black

Helping another person out when they are in need? That sounds like socialism.

Somewhere out there, there has to be a SuperPAC that is going to hire Sam Waterston to sell RomneyBot insurance.

It will be positive because he has all the dirty money filter through SuperPacs that can get away with lies/slander/hyperbole. Not that Obama won't do the same. Something about not coordinating and stuff too.

Came in here to ask if anyone else had seen this one - saw it for the first time last night. What the hell? Apparently "Mitt Romney is a decent human being" was all they could come up with for a positive ad. You're gonna have to do better than that, Mittens.

Oh, well, that is just touching. Really moving, that he could have human emotion and do something nice for someone else. I wasn't aware we needed to hand out pats on the back and campaign ads for something like this.

/My point was to draw a parallel between his actions in "saving" a girl's life, and "saving" the Detroit auto industry. That is to say, he loudly called for letting the auto-industry die, only to now take credit for the success that has come from saving it when he had nothing to do with it.

As pointed out previously, he acts like letting an employee take a day off for a family emergency is above and beyond the call of duty as an employer.
