When Mitt gets nervous, he starts cracking jokes. And think about it...what happens when Mitt starts cracking jokes? Hilarity ensures, but not the kind he hoped for.

I hope he's really, really nervous.

He doesn't want to talk about it because it will infuriate his racist batshiat base.

It's not like that's a subject they'd be interested in anyway. I'm sure they'd rather discuss the imoproving economy and tree heights.

skygod: He doesn't want to talk about it because it will infuriate his racist batshiat base.


while Romney is in his box of silence he can be simultaneously for and against immigration reform/building an electrified wall on the border...and everyone is happy

as this election moves forward he'll have to talk more and more and that's gonna hurt him.

FTA: "The former Massachusetts governor argues that his economic credentials would benefit all people who have struggled under Obama's leadership in recent years - women, younger voters and Hispanics among them."

Isn't that what the GOP used to call "playing identity politics"? "Fracturing the American people into smaller and smaller groups, then pitting them against each other"?

Anyone care to explain?

// oh, because Latinos are suddenly a huge voting bloc

I heard on i think Joe Rogan's podcast Romney doesn't rrrrrrrrrrreally want to get into illegal immigration because there's some question about whether his grandfather legally migrated to Mexico back in the day. granted it was freaking, you know, 100 years ago, but on principle.

and on the same podcast the guy was floating some theory about how the branch / sect of Mormons that remained in Mexico -- this is where i'm hazy on the details as it has been about a month -- might have some role in the drug flow from SA through mexico.

In other news:
Mitt Romney will be avoiding talking about Civil Rights when he talks to African-American leaders
Mitt Romney will be avoiding talking about Israel when he talks to Jewish-American leaders.
Mitt Romney will be avoiding talking about health issues when he meets with Women's Voter leaders.
Mitt Romney will be avoiding talking about President Obama being a foreign born Muslim with Tea Party leaders.

/if I don't say ANYthing definitive, EVERYone will like me!

I think Romney's general response to questions about his policies' impact on women / minorities / the poor is that, basically, what's good for America is good for American women / minorities / poor people etc, so technically he's not playing identity politics. Of course that's predicated on whether his policies will actually grow the economy, before we even get to issues about disparate impact and social policies.

Romney doesn't like ethnic food so he'll most likely avoid the subject.
 
2012-06-21 02:10:08 PM
Sure, fine, focus on the economy. What's he going to say? "The economy is terrible and it's all Obama's fault and it will never improve unless you vote for me! Oh and also the economy is improving, so vote to re-elect Rick Scott!"

He's completely run out of topics that he can address without sounding like a total doofus.

A bit like the last election where Obama was basically allowed to never, ever, state his views on gay marriage.

But it's okay when a Democrat won't take a stand on a major issue before an election. It's only when those evil Republicans won't do it that it becomes a problem.
 
2012-06-21 02:10:30 PM
Basically, he said that he thinks people who have served in the military should have a path to legal status and that this provision should be enshrined in law. Isn't that what the DREAM Act would do? And didn't Mitt Romney previously say that he would veto the DREAM Act?

Empty Matchbook: Mitt Romney will be avoiding talking about Israel when he talks to Jewish-American leaders.


Depending on where those Jewish leaders have convened, that might actually be a good plan.

At AIPAC? Bad idea.

At a heterogeneous, multi-traditional gathering with "traditional", Reform, Conservative and Orthodox folks, I don't even think *I'd* get into specific policy outlines. Even J Street might be a bad place to lay out a new plan.

// of course, I'd start any Israel policy speech by pissing off the group I was speaking to: "Here's where y'all motherfarkers have been wrong for the last 40 years..."

All politicians should have to fill out a questionnaire on the issues and have it posted online. If you don't answer even 1 of them you don't get to run.
 
2012-06-21 02:19:23 PM
This is pretty funny to watch. By not taking a side and continuously avoiding the issue he's showing obvious lack of leadership skills, but he's also making it painfully obvious that he has no actual platform, he's just telling everyone what he thinks they want to hear. And things are only going to get worse when things like debates start coming up and he actually has to appeal to the masses instead of the political rally fanatics who were already voting for him anyway.

Romney stated to Latinos today that "Obama is taking your votes for granted."

That's farking hilarious.

"Obama doesn't love you like I love you! He's just using you for your votes! Leave him and love me instead!"

U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama stated his views in opposition to gay marriage many times during the campaign. Perhaps you had you head to far up your arse to hear him.

I agree, it's a multi-faceted issue, but that level of detail kinda kills my joke ;)

/and personally I think you should still talk ABOUT it, regardless
//but demanding openness from a politician is like demanding the wind blow the other direction

The Romney Family, along with several other of the big Mormon Families like hte LaBarons, built polygamy communes in Chihuahua Mexico after it was outlawed in the US (it's okay when white people don't respect borders). Romney's grandfather had five wives. Romney's father was born in Mexico, but obtained naturalized citizenship from being born to two US citizens. Many of those polygamists fled Mexico during the Mexican Revolution, including Romney's dad and grandparents. Some permanently fled, some later returned when things died down. Those polygamist sects still exist in Mexico today, in the same areas that are hot spots for Drug Cartels. The polygamist sects have been stock piling weapons and warring against the drug cartels for some time.

There are a few people making the connection that Romney is trying to be as bland and generic as possible so as to frame the election as a referendum on Obama, but largely they're ignoring it. There was an article posted on Fark recently about how Romney resembles Dewey in his election against Truman in that regard.
