Mitt Romney is a Northeast liberal God-Fearing American. He's an out-of-touch millionaire wonderful job creator. Mitt Romney doesn't have the strength of his convictions is the second coming of Reagan.

He's a flip flopper on all things, big and small. I think it's entirely fair he ask the same of his 'supporters.'

I think what's gonna cause Romney issues is what he did when he was with Bain Capital. I know that a lot of GOP shills are pissed off any time someone mentions Romney's record there.

Part of the problem here, and it's not just a Romney problem or a GOP problem, is that the former primary candidates all have campaign debt that needs to be retired. The place to go to do that is the winning candidate and Committee. And that requires you to change your tune a bit.

Why does the Internet hate America?

i'm sure that the die hard rank and file voters will all fall into line and support Romney. Even the evangelicals will betray their own religious beliefs and (eventually and somewhat reluctantly) will come around and vote for Romney. Because to a certain segment of the population its about party before country...or sanity, in this case.

so what's said on the internet won't matter to those voters. they'll just ignore it. Everyone else...well, it depends on their level of involvement. they have to do their own research if they want to make an informed choice. how well that goes is anyone's guess...but I suspect most (if not all) moderate/independent voters won't vote for Romney, and it won't have anything to do with what got said during the GOP primary race.

This is very true, but I'm not looking forward to the start of the 2016 campaign, which will start in November.

Last Republican convention was one of the most surreal moments in politics I've seen. You had the billionaire governor of Massachusets railing against East Coast elitists, as you said, plus the DA from Law & Order complaining about Hollywood Liberals, and the former mayor of NYC telling us how big cities aren't Real America.

I can't wait to see what sort of mental gymnastics they pull this year.

-"Why would you want to nominate the guy who lost to the guy who lost to Obama?"


Because the alternatives where a gay-hating psycho who has a gay husband, a Texas dumbass who vacations at "Ni&&er Rock", a loudmouth blowhard who tried to shut down the government 20 years ago, a token black guy who had an economic plan that was so simple he could not understand it...

The problem is that there's a lot of people who either don't have, don't use, or don't know how to use the internet. They receive and process information in a way that is completely foreign to me.

For us it's second nature. But I work with a person who doesn't have the internet at home... because they don't own a computer. I'm constantly debunking "I heard some thing from some guy" kind of nonsense.

I get where you are going, but that is a dumb example. Hillary endorsed Obama would be more consistant. Unless you are saying that Obama claimed Hillary would make a bad Secretary of State before he picked her for the post.

Heh... it will be rather hilarious listening to the usual bigots, religious fascists, far right wing nuts and "small government conservatives" rationalize voting for a mormon former governor of one of the "most liberal states" who instituted a health care plan which was the basis for the ACA, ordered city and town clerks to issue marriage licenses to homosexuals, and claimed to want to keep abortions legal and safe numerous times in the past.

That's just an excuse. He's got enough campaign cash to hire a couple of retired EEs and reverse-engineer the hookups.

I don't think Obama ever really attacked Hillary's competence to be President during the campaign. Hillary attacked Obama's (the "3 AM" ad), but not vice versa.

The Republicans I know personally (family members, etc.) have no real need to "look anything up". They exist in sort of an information bubble, where everything outside that bubble is considered "liberal bias" and "far-leftist sources" (my dad uses that term often, but I don't know who these "sources" are, I just think of it as "outside the bubble" - aka reality).

Inside the bubble consists of pretty much Fox News, talk radio, email spam, etc. Nothing outside the bubble is ever allowed in, being rejected outright for the reasons above, while everything inside the bubble is defended at all costs.

That is to say, derp may be easily disproved - outside the bubble.

But outside the bubble is not where derp dwells.
