i'll say it again, rmoney gives pandering, unctuous politicians a bad name.

Trapped between the need to increase the Latino vote and the anti-immigration crowd in the Republican base. It's Romney's own Kobayashi Maru.

Romney will resist superposition at all costs. He must occupy all possible states simultaneously.

He should just go all out and support it in hopes of getting some of the illegal alien vote, because no matter what he does and says, the wingnut base will still vote for him because he's a Christian and not a Muslim.

Unctuous really is the perfect word for him.
 
2012-06-19 10:48:18 AM
Romney won't address President Obama's bold move directly, IMHO. He's side-step it and call for a broad comprehensive immigration policy reform ... that he'll work on once he's elected.

/You know, promise the Moon and deliver rocks.

I dunno if a lot of the wingnut base who think Obama is a Muslim would consider Mormons to be Christians.

Very clever of the Obama machine to give Romney shiny balls to chase.

The big question is whether Frank Forclosure and Nancy Noraise are willing to be diverted by the issue du jour or will be more influenced in November by the suck that is the economy.

It's more closely related Calvanist protestantism, I believe. But it's not a sub-sect of anything else, it's a wholly unique entity of it's own.
 
2012-06-19 12:04:52 PM
Nobody should be surprised by this. He basically gave up the game awhile ago when he admitted that he won't name specific federal departments he wants to close (except for behind closed doors of course) because then Obama and the Democrats would have specific stuff to attack him with.

"Actually, as soon as I get elected hopefully, I will start working on this issue and hopefully be ready to go immediately."

Ah, yes, the "private sector" response.

"Do you have a quote for how much my car repair might cost me?"
"No, but let me start working on it and I'll let you know how much it costs. After I have it taken apart and you can't move it to anyone else."

"How much is this loaf of bread."
"I don't know, but if you run it through the cash register over there and let me charge you, I'll tell you what it will cost."

"So, Joe Plumber, after looking at my leaky sink, how much do you think you'll charge for this? Do you have an estimate?"
"Sorry, I can't tell you until I start to work on it. But I'll clearly give you a cost when the job is so far through that you can't turn me down. How does that sound?"

In general, using a guy that won't give you an estimate BEFORE he starts work on something, is usually NOT the guy you want to work on it. But I guess Romney's the kind of guy you can have caviar with, so it's all good.

Diogenes: Romney will resist superposition at all costs. He must occupy all possible states simultaneously.

Thing is he can't keep it up. Sooner or later he's going to have to take a firm position because the minority vote isn't going to wait until the last minute. And all it's going to take is one stumble, an errant phrase or two to swing the Latino vote to the Democrats.

TFA: "You know, we will see kind of what the calendar looks like at that point and I am not going to tell which items will come first, second, or third," Romney said

According to this and this, Romney already has his first day mapped out in enough detail to draft five bills and five executive orders. So I suppose he doesn't need to wait and see the calendar after all.

Romney wants to wait until closer to the actual vote to say definitively whether he wants to alienate his base or every latino in America. That's really going to bite him in the ass in the future. If he doesn't have something more concrete by the debates, he'll get hit so hard, all 8 of his grandmothers will feel it.

Has Rmoney actually described ANY policy he would put in place if he is elected President? Other than "get tough with China" on trade, that is (whatever that means).

Taking a stand would make the issue go away.

The only universal, fundamental principle in American politics is this: if you aren't playing offense, you're playing defense.

I believe he said he would specifically do the exact opposite of what Obama has done with regards to Israel. I presume that means he would start a nuclear war with Iran.

That is the main advantage that Obama has. He can influence the agenda because he can actually direct policy. All Romney can do is talk. He hasn't been in government in half a decade.

I don't know why Romney doesn't say he would reject Obama's directive and tell congress to do their job and pass something.

It appeals to the base by rejecting something Obama wanted.

It appeals to Latinos by saying he wants permanent reform.

It's no more of a willful misdirection than he already is using. That is the exact type of "saying something while saying nothing" statement that would just get passed on by television and print media, who could then move on to some other story. Instead, his attempt to avoid any statement has made this a multi-cycle story about how he has been outmaneuvered by Obama and that he can't take a position on anything. Bad all around for him.
 
2012-06-19 12:32:53 PM
We need a STRONG leader like Romney NOT an EMPTY SUIT like 0Bama. With Romney real leadership he'll sit around and let congress take their time to decide, if they decide anything, and then will think about it. Not like the EMPTY SUIT 0-Fartbongo who shows no leadership by passing wussy orders around to fix issues because congress hasn't done it yet.

"You know, we will see kind of what the calendar looks like at that point and I am not going to tell which items will come first, second, or third," Romney said, according to transcripts released by Fox News. "What I can tell you is that those people who come here by virtue of their parents bringing them here, who came in illegally, that's something I don't want to football with as a political matter."

So when he said he would go around congress to cancel "Obamacare" on day one, that is now a lie?
