"What the court did not do on its last day in session, I will do on my first day if elected president of the United States. And that is I will act to repeal 'ObamaCare,'" Romney said Thursday in Washington, adding to his portfolio the politically thorny pledge to undo President Obama's health reform law.

so the economy and acceleration of corporate offshoring of our jobs isn't a priority? that's good to know - thanks Mitt! And f*ck you too buddy.

Eventually Mitt will have to put forward an original idea. Or two.

Does Romney whip and torture his prostitutes too?

nah. He's just gonna phone in this campaign. when he loses, he'll blame 'the media' and make vague semi-accusations about voter fraud. then he'll write a book and hit the lecture circuit.

"Because 'Fark you, I got mine' is on the family crest."

Strange he didn't mention destroying the country, fire everyone and selling the pieces to China.

In the grand scale in problems with America "Obamacare" is far down on the list.

Obama wasted most of the first 2 years of his presidency on hcr instead of focusing on the bad economy and look where that got him; now Romney main goal is to do the same thing.

I don't think anyone thinks Romney is history's greatest monster. He is an a-hole though.

As someone living in MA, who witnessed Romney's implementation of universal healthcare, I seriously crack up every time he tries to attack Obamacare. It's just not possible.

And seeking the repeal of "job-killing regulations" (the financial regulatory reform bill, Dodd-Frank, is an example Romney mentions frequently on the campaign trail)

Oh thank god. The one thing that's hurt this economy more than anything is that Wall Street has been too tightly regulated.

Yes, fark Obama for trying to fix what has caused more bankruptcies in recent years than anything else in the nation.

I realize that Obama will probably get his 2nd term, but my thinking was there a lot less enthusiasm around him this time around and that's mostly due to the still sluggish economy. Back in 2008 it was all "OMG OBAMA!" but now it's more like "meh, Obama"
 
2012-07-02 11:47:56 AM
Only in modern day America could most people look at that list of hoped-for "accomplishments" and not vomit.
 
2012-07-02 11:50:42 AM
Mitt Romney's plan to reform education would threaten existing Title I and IDEA funds distributed by the federal government to the states by requiring them to change their laws regarding charter and private schools. Based on the court's ruling in NFIB v. Sebelius, this plan is unconstitutional. Why do Republicans support a presidential candidate who advocates for unconstitutional policies?
 
2012-07-02 11:51:10 AM
Seeking tax cuts and deficit reduction,

Spending cuts for the poor and tax cuts for the wealthy. Shared sacrifice, Romney style..

Which might be a problem, if Romney wasn't the cure for insomnia personified.

I think a lot of the OMG OBAMA! feelings were fueled by anti-Bush sentiment. People were really unhappy with him and just wanted any change. Even now, Democrats are mostly the party of not-Republicans. It would be nice if the Democrats would unify around some issues and start supporting each other.

Why does the "Repeal & Replace" manta always seem to be lauded with absolutely no emphasis on the latter part? Why not just run on the platform of "Repeal," seeing that you have no desire to offer any sort of replacement?

CrackpipeCardozo: Why does the "Repeal & Replace" manta always seem to be lauded with absolutely no emphasis on the latter part? Why not just run on the platform of "Repeal," seeing that you have no desire to offer any sort of replacement?


Since Obama implemented the Republican health care plan, they have no idea on what to possibly replace it with. So the response is always "a plan to be detailed later", which is why it's such a losing argument. Whatever problems mainstream voters may have with the plan, it's still better than no plan at all as far as they're concerned.

Because they believe that health care is a privilege, much like Gulfstream jets, super-yachts, and high-rise condos.

"First, we established incentives for those who were uninsured to buy insurance. Using tax penalties, as we did, or tax credits, as others have proposed, encourages "free riders" to take responsibility for themselves rather than pass their medical costs on to others. This doesn't cost the government a single dollar." - Mitt Romney, 2009

when McCain won the primaries in 2008, I supported him, cuz he was the senior Republican and I've always done my duty. But I'm the rightful nominee now by every convention and tradition of the GOP.

People must have short memories then. Because some serious economic shiat was going down 4 years ago. The fact that the Administration was dealing with Bush's TARP and the mortgage shiat and the Stimulus and Wall Street Oversight and still got HCR done was nothing short of amazing considering where things were.

You know, as a guy that has been running for President for 5+ years....he really could've spent more time hammering out those first 100 days.

Usually five years into a job you have a better idea of what it entails and how to perform it, too.

MSNBC reporting in bullet points:

* We have to pay more taxes for...stuff.

* The question is not should we be at war, but how much should we spend?

* The democrat is always right

* Revaluing healthcare is madness. Keep charging $50 bucks for an aspirin and force the population to pay insurance companies. Smart. That is what smart people think.

* The stock market is not fraud.

* Contrary to anything you can see with your own eyes, we are in economic recovery.

* Ron Paul is unelectable.

* Republicans R baaaaaaaaaaad.

Yeah, nice try. Ultimately things get done (or don't get done) in congress. What a president does mostly is 'get watched'. I bet you're watching the current one right now, aren't you?
 
2012-07-02 12:27:48 PM
A little bit of whistling past the graveyard as things keep looking better and better for Obama and worse and worse for Romney. I'd be more interested to hear the discussions undoubtedly going on in high level repub circles about what they'll do if and when Romney loses. Do you think they'll discuss the possibility of bipartisan action in the face of the American people' clear preference for Democratic policies? Or will they be discussing ways to punish the American voter for his temerity in voting for that awful black man?
