King Something: anfrind: GhostFish: Nina_Hartley's_Ass: Uh, they ain't liberals.

If they're not supporting the GOP nominee, they're liberals.

This is what the Republican base actually believes.

why doesn't 0bama say something to stop this?

DancingElkCondor: So funny...on one end we have liberals in both parties whining that Romney "isn't embracing the Hispanics enough (illegals)" while another splatter of libs in both parties now claim "Romney is from Mexico, not eligible"

I think I will vote for Plegdov Borschtdrinkovsky....a haberdasher originally from Tadjikistan. Since he was born when Tadjikistan was part of the USSR...there is no proof he was born in Tadjik.

I'm not a Romney birther, but you're all brutes to even treat these birthers like they were idiots. They're only asking questions! It's free speech! Besides, the fact people are defending Romney like this just shows there's something to hide. That Birth Certificate's a forgery and I can tell by the pixels and the layers in the document when you pull it up as a PDF! Also, Romney's not a real Christian, he's a Mus-- er, Mormon, and until I see evidence otherwise, I'll know he's just a Mormon Usurper ready to steal America from REAL AMERICANS.

And obviously we're not racist towards white people at all, it just so happens to be that Romney is of Mexican descent, so you're the real racist!

/end derp sarcasm

Where is Romney's long-form birth certificate? All I'm seeing is a computer-generated "certificate of live birth" which doesn't even name the hospital he was born in or the attending physician.

tomWright: "because George Romney was born in Mexico, his candidate son is not a natural-born citizen, and therefore Constitutionally ineligible to occupy the Oval Office."

Extending this logic, only those descended from the original folks that walked across the Bering Land Bridge, or boated across, counts as natural born.

Of course you could extend it to mean that since humans did not originally evolve here NO-ONE is natural-born.

GAT_00: jake_lex: RAND PAUL as VP

Hey now, I'm convinced that's going to happen too. It actually makes sense for the ticket, plus gets a few of those nutjobs to calm down. It's a good choice if they stray away from the perfectly safe choices to ones that have more impact.


Ain't gonna happen. The whole dynamic is to move the GOP back to the center, and keep the fringe elements fringe.

Some Dan Quayle type will be the running mate, probably somebody with good foreign policy chops.

That Truman fellow claimed to have been born in a place called "Missouri," but I recognize no such state.

God, I love this...a few liberals and moderates use the same logic for Romney's birth as the birthers used for Obama's birth in an effort to score a debate point against them...and the birthers picked it up and ran with it. "Whar birf certifct Romney whar!" And with Romney it's even more entertaining, because Kenya isn't loading up our country with those horrible illegal Mexican foreigners, so you get this extra layer of politicism.

Romney has worked so hard to court the crazies, ignoring every principle he has in an effort to claim a handful of votes, and now they're not going to vote for him anyway.

An obvious forgery. What's up with the word 'VOID' along either side of this alleged "document"?


The mother was too old to have a live birth. The word "void" means the robot/child was not human.

Yes they will. The xenophobia won't stick to Romney. He looks and sounds like the GOP base, and so they will accept him. Hypocritical as it may seem, they won't have an issue with his family's weird religion or expatriatism.

They won't have a problem with Romneycare, or his transparent abandonment of his previous platforms in favor of whatever will get him support.

They will be behind him because he is the GOP candidate, because he looks and sounds like they do, and because his funny sounding name is "Thurston Howell" funny and not "towelhead" funny.

You're wrong. Romney has no principles aside from his abiding belief that he is entitled to the presidency.

Ladies and gentlemen, the average RON PAUL supporter, who is convinced that Romney is a communist spy.

The true RON PAUL believers I know hate Rmoney far worse than Obama.

Which is why I don't believe all their delusions of him causing a stink at the convention and, perhaps, getting RAND PAUL as VP or things like abolishing the Federal Reserve into the platform will ever come true. What use is it to the Republican party to cater to them if they aren't going to vote? RON PAUL's delegates will be told to get in the back of the room and STFU, and you won't hear a peep from them.


The scary part is how deep some of them are in denial.

"If the Ron Paul Liberty movement is to continue, we must not bail out now because our man is not going to win! In the end, we have already won, you are just not looking at the big picture."

"Every time someone says he conceded.....they have been wrong.....again they are wrong today....lol. It is interesting to note that Sean in this interview said "who (stutter) I guess officially and (stutter) finally dropped out of the race. Lol. He did not drop out trolls...lol"

a 20 year old couldn't run for President anyway... so i'm not entirely sure i see what her dumbass point is supposed to be.

and where does 1948 come from in relation to the 20 years ago part?

rambling and nonsensical definitely sounds like a Ron Paul supporter though.

Well, the logic is that you have to have two parents that are US Citizens. Which is, you know, flat-out wrong, but it wouldn't disqualify the vast majority of the citizenry from running were it true (again, it's not).

I've never met an actual liberal who is a Ron Paul voter. I've met some who respect his principles and his anti-drug war and anti-war stances, but never one who would actually vote for him, and I live in a city that is so goddamn liberal they made a farking TV series about how Portland is filled with head-up-their-ass liberals. So I don't know what the fark you're talking about, unless you think "lib" is short for libertarian.

Secondly, the only liberals I've met who are "Birthers" about Mitt Romney's citizenship are doing it tongue-in-cheek to parody dead-serious Republican Birthers.

Thirdly, the links in TFA linking to Mitt Birthers are run by "libertarians" snidely referring to "Barry Soetoro."
