Romney's web page coming down in 3....2....
 
2012-06-28 04:08:31 PM  
So, the GOP nominated the grandfather of Obamacare, who wants to install more justices like Roberts, who upheld a program that Romney invented.

Your nominee, GOP voters. Aren't you excited?!?!?!

I want to see one journalist ask Romney why the GOP thinks that this decision is socialism and so horrible for the US.

Then play him this video and ask again.

Just one

I think that Roberts is just trolling Scalia.

Why does his website look like it should be Obama's? I would think they would have just taken screenshots of Obama's and then run them through photoshop's invert filter.

Roberts said if the case were over the Commerce Clause he'd have voted the other way. He basically told people who object to ACA how to win their case before the SCOTUS. Expect someone challenging the applicability of the Commerce Clause in 5...4...3..

Yup - even though I'm pretty much a throw-away vote, I've re-registered (I was conveniently disenfranchised when I moved and didn't find out until the next election cycle when I showed up and couldn't vote) and will be doing my part, even in a hardcore conservative stronghold.

Oh believe me, I'm under no assumption that this is in the bag. Far from it; I want to see Romney melt down into a pile of goo during the first debate from Obama just nailing him on his own contradictions.

I take my right to vote seriously, although this year North Carolina might not go for Obama like it did in 2008. I'm voting anyway. You never know.

I can see a macro version of what happened with Walker in Wisconsin come November: Actually more people voing in favor of Obama.

A fantasy scenario would be that Romney's so bad that even states that normally wouldn't be in play (read: Texas) would come in play as the last weeks of the campaign draw to a close.

Well, it is going to be....

B.) BLAME-Liberal "Anonymous" conspiracy hacked website (Make sure to show exploding van, links to pedophilia, and OWS)

C.) ORWELLIAN REWRITE-Obamacare was MY idea after all and I never said anything against it. Ever. That's my story and I am sticking to it.

D.) BACKPEDAL-Change language on website, but avoid all questions and inquiries about it and always change the subject.

E.) ALL OF THE ABOVE.

So Romney says he disagrees with the majority and agrees with the dissent.

Would Romneycare be Constitutional under the dissent's reasoning?

I voted for Obama and would like to see him reelected, but I'm not sure it will happen. The old derp guard is not to be ignored. Remember 2010?

Instead of asking the question of do you think Obama/Romney should/will win... ask this: Do you think we can excite the youth and other blocks into voting for Obama's re-election in the same numbers that were seen for his election?

Because I think that's what's going to need to happen. And I just can't bring myself to put much faith in those people. Both the twitter/facebook/twilight generation and all those that have no idea there are elections in-between presidential elections.
 
2012-06-28 04:58:58 PM  
I just looked and I still see it on Romney's site.

Just cut and pasted:

As president, Mitt will nominate judges in the mold of Chief Justice Roberts and Justices Scalia, Thomas, and Alito. These justices hold dear what the great Chief Justice John Marshall called "the basis on which the whole American fabric has been erected": a written Constitution, with real and determinate meaning. The judges that Mitt nominates will exhibit a genuine appreciation for the text, structure, and history of our Constitution and interpret the Constitution and the laws as they are written. And his nominees will possess a demonstrated record of adherence to these core principles.

They get guarantees ahead of time that all TV play is with kids gloves on, or they don't come on the air at all.

It was part of the hilarity that was Sarah Palin. They used kids gloves and she still looked retarded... and she blamed the media for it.
