abb3w: ...can anyone come up with a more complete softball of a question for a presidential candidate?

And, as counter-challenge, can anyone come up with how Romney is likely to flub those in turn?


I think Romney's bought into the notion that, since he's a Republican, all media outlets not run by GOP pundits or other major party players are out to get him. So even when he's asked the simplest damn question, he has it drilled into his head that it's a trick, so he gives goofy answers so that the party faithful can join him in laughing at the filthy hippie liberal media.

Of course, if you're NOT a member of the party faithful, you're probably wondering why anyone else would flerkin vote for this guy.

Gah! Your comparison is blasphemy! Anyone who did not vote for Data would be an idiot. Data was farking rad.


THIS THIS THIS. How dare anyone sully the good name of Data by mentioning it in the same sentence as the abomination of anti-humanity that is Romney.

Really? Nobody noticed that he's tasting it the same way he would wine? That's how you describe wine in a fancy wine tasting, single descriptive words.

He doesn't actually know how to just say if he likes something.

I would pay money to see someone say "wet" with a straight face when describing a wine at a tasting.

An easier question would simply have been "is the lemonade good Governor?"

with the Romney answer being "lemonade"

How about a really easy one:

"Did you enjoy the 4th of July yesterday?"

Romney's answer:

"I enjoy the 4th day of every month and it is my right to do so as an American."


I always love the Fourth of July. It's always just the right length.

Virulency: I'm amused that he barely answers the question, did he seriously dodge a lemonade question?


To be fair, he needs to keep his options open. The election season does get into early cocoa season and he wouldn't want to paint himself into a corner now by taking a firm position on the all-important snack beverage issue. Plus, I doubt the polling is in yet.

It would be the most accurate and honest summation there, as well as the least pretentious. Certainly less stupid than declaring a wine "dry."

LEMONGATE! Do you like those lemons, huh, SENOR Willard MITT Rmoney Upperton III? I bet they have a lot of lemons where you come from.. IN MEXICO!!!! but up here in Real Jesus Christian God's America we have something called apple pie. I guess you'd never have heard of that while you're doing your Tijuana hat dancing down in little Mexighetto because apple pie, like everything good in America has ALCOHOL in it. I guess you were too busy jooooob creating with you fancy elitist college snob degree that you got in honkytown to pound a few natural American ones back and you had to settle for OUT OF TOWNER drinks. Well guess what Willy McWhitesalot CD ROMney, here in A+ #1 country in the world, that kind of elitist Santeria won't fly. USA! USA!

Of course people do shiat like this from time to time. But goddamn near every farking day no matter the topic? You think his campaign keeps him away from the press and the public just for shiats and giggles? No, it's because he either says something completely off message or simply comes off as an out of touch dullard.

If you're running for President, when you have to interact socially with us normals you simply must avoid sounding like someone who has suffered a massive stroke. Certainly not always, but certainly not at the incredible rate Romney does either. Especially when you're trying oh so hard to shake the 'out of touch' label.

It seems someone in the crowd asked him about the lemonade. Frankly, even as anti-Romney as I am, I'm willing to chalk this up as a goofy joke uttered impromptu-style in a festive atmosphere.

I mean, did you really expect him to stop in the middle of a parade and say "It has just the right balance of tart and sweet and it at the perfect temperature of 38-40 degrees F."??

Yea... I'm just not looking at this thinking it is some kind of big indicator of Mitt Romney, the man/machine. For me, this goes in the 'meh' column.

I don't think anyone else sees it as a big indicator, but the Romney/Robot idea is funny. It takes pretty close to zero effort to post here, the fact that people are doing it is not evidence that they feel strongly about the comment.

Lighten up, Francis.
