Mrtraveler01: And really Fox "Applogy-looza"?

"Apologalooza" sounds a lot more catchier. Fox should hire me to write their graphics. Can't be worst than the last guy amirght? ;)


Their viewers wouldn't understand "Apologalooza." They would think that it was the name of a foreign country.

Mrtraveler01: that bosnian sniper: I'd imagine right now they're pressuring Romney to release tax returns and FEC/SEC filings, for the fact that anything untowards in those documents could be enough to pressure him to withdraw from the race, or refuse the nomination, after the first round of voting. That'd force a brokered convention.

What are the odds of this really happening though?


I guess that depends on what Romney is trying to hide (if anything).

I don't see a broken convention coming. Oh sire, the right will back stab each other like usual, but in the end they will fall lockstep regardless of how much it personally hurts them just to focus on their main goal: stick it to the libs.

Romney is most likely a throwaway candidate and they are saving their not so shiatty candidates for a 2016 run. Or maybe they just all suck. I always felt McCain was intentionally throwing the election in 2008.

Dayum. This is the campaign I wanted to see- now they need to stop pulling their punches.

I want to see Romney run out of town on a rail. I want the entire GOP to witness him in tears on election night giving a concession speech as their pathetic house of teabags falls around their ears to the resounding shout of "NO" by the American people repudiating their entire disgusting platform.

I agree, I don't think the GOP tried much in 2008 and probably wont' in 2012 and sooner or later will just shift their focus to the Congressional and Gubernatorial elections where the GOP can get some headway.

Obama told Charlie Rose of CBS This Morning that private equity -- which Romney practiced at Bain Capital -- is "appropriate" work, "but that doesn't necessarily make you qualified to think about the economy as a whole. Because, as president, my job is to think about the workers. My job is to think about communities, where jobs have been outsourced."

Obama: Romney doesn't know 'economy as a whole'

Lays down a monster.

Depending on what's in those documents, and how damaging it proves to be, considering the resistance the Romney campaign is showing to doing it I'd say pretty goddamned good considering the amount of chaos it would cause. This election season is pretty well passing the Godzilla threshold for the GOP, and considering the amount of political capital on the line I could very well imagine them going nuclear to salvage their chances.

If there was anything particularly damaging in Romney's tax returns, wouldn't the GOP higher-ups already be aware of it? It's not like McCain looked at them by himself and didn't talk to anybody after he read them. They can't think Romney won't have to release them eventually. If they looked that bad, they wouldn't have let him get this far.

Cyclometh: Dayum. This is the campaign I wanted to see- now they need to stop pulling their punches.


The frustrating thing is that the GOP plays the bully AND the victim and people fall for it time and time again. They will cry about Obama's ads, but not because its not the high road, but because they are being called out. Much like the base who screams that their freedom of speech is being trampled on when people call them out on their BS. They don't want freedom of speech; they want freedom from criticism.

And that's the key here. As people have legitimately complained about Obama's agenda not going through during his term, its not enough to have the White House. They also need the House and Senate. So its not the presidental election that people need to focus on. if they want beneficial stuff to get done, they have to weaken the crazed GOP's influence in Congress by voting them out and voting for better candidates. Then, when the GOP becames sane again and not self-destructive to the country as a whole with horrible policies, they can be voted for again.

Then why won't they release them? Especially in light of the fact that this story just keeps going every day he doesn't. You think if there wasn't anything damaging in them that they would just go "No, we'll just keep them and let this story grow out of control, when we can just as easily quash it from the start"

Maybe they're trying to pull a reverse Obama birth certificate duplex. The big difference is that Obama's birth certificateS prove he's an American and Rmoney's documents prove he's a job-destroying vulture.

Can't run away from the one Mitt. That big web of lies you've been weaving are tying you up and now you can't move.

This is what happens when your presumptive nominee is a lying liar who casually lies about everything from the words he's spoken to the way he likes his trees.

Good luck Republicans. How does it feel to have your own Michael Dukakis?

gimmegimme: SeismicJizzer: hubiestubert: What's cute is that folks have been asking the President to take the gloves off, and then scream like little girls when he does exactly that. Be that with pirates, be that in Libya, be that with Bin Laden.

Most of what you are talking about where comments coming from the impotent republicans who lost the foreign policy card to Obama. Stunning as that it is, it's standard operating procedure among progressives to be weak need coonts. They have this idea that if you give a great speech like Michael Douglas did on The American President, people will fawn and vote for you. Liberal billionaires are weary of PAC's because being aggressive against your opponent with corporate money is just plain mean and unamerican. This type of delusion is a mental illness that has marked the party for decades.

I am sick and tired of Democrats, they don't have the fortitude in winning elections, it isn't in their blood, these pussies don't deserve to win if they can't fight for what they believe in.

I for one am happy that Obama is finally going all Lyndon Johnson on this caricature of a candidate the GOP recklessly sprouted out to the American public.

[1.bp.blogspot.com image 401x271]

I am not a caricature, my friend. I was Prefect of Massachusetts, in charge of the lives of more people than you have ever met. I have negotiated treaties between massive dominions that led to years of peace and well-run athletics competitions. Someday, the very PAC wraiths will be under my command and I will be the most powerful man in the galaxy. What is most important to me? The love of my sons and the hope of a happy retirement on Kolob.

I don't think the issue is that there's anything particularly damning in Romney's returns.

I just think the Romney campaign realizes that if they're released, Obama will ask questions -- forcing Romney to respond. And, Romney is VERY BAD at responding.

The Republican goal in the election is to tarnish Obama while keeping Romney a non-issue (and, thereby acceptable to the public). That's not going to happen if Romney has to answer questions.

The republicans DO realize that eventually these two have to be in a debate in the same room, right? And that Romney has to say something besides 'Amercia first!' or 'Obama gonna abort your gunz rights!'?

Its never a good sign if you have to hide your candidate until the last minute because they just keep footing themselves in the foot. Although, if that was the case, then at least the GOP is learning after the Palin disaster.

The John Edward's love child story came out on the same day as the Opening Ceromonies in Beijing in 2008 so something tells me that if Mitt is going to realize something (especially if it's damning evidence), he's going to release them on the same day the Olympics open up in London.

That's my crazy conspiracy theory anyway.

The GOPers calling for release aren't those who would be in the know. Remember, John McCain wasn't exactly the most popular guy in the Republican party. When R operatives close to McCain say release them then yes, it's possible there's no there there. On the other hand, all those guys hate Rmoney so maybe it'll be them trying to screw him.

There's some good news for Romney on that front: in debates, candidates are asked questions by moderators. They don't have to directly engage each other, or answer questions posed by the other side.

I suspect Romney will do what Palin did: ignore the question altogether and give a canned speech on whatever themes he wants to highlight. It's the only way to limit damage to himself.

propasaurus: Waxing_Chewbacca: Zalan: thornhill: It's really mind blowing how bad of a campaign Romney is running.

Every day that he refuses to release his tax returns is another day that his refusal dominates the media cycle and the more it looks like he's trying to hide. Does he not get that he's totally playing into Obama's hand on this?

Mitt Romney gave McCain 23 years of tax records to look at when he was considered for the Vice Presidency. McCain after seeing those records chose Sarah Palin. George Romney (Willard's daddy) set the standard that candidates release 12 years of tax returns since one year may be a fluke.

I didn't realize it was 23 years worth. Wow.

Yeah, but I think basically McCain hated Mitt and demanding 23 years worth of tax returns was just his way of putting Mitt's balls in the wringer.
Still, Romney wasn't even good enough to be McCain's VP, why do we think he's good enough to be at the top of the ticket now?


The key point is that Romney wasn't even good enough to be McCain's VP, in lieu of Sarah Palin. I mean, had McCain picked to real top-notch running mate, then I can understand if Romney only made the short list but came up short. But coming up short against Palin is... dude, you suck.

I think this is an "unintended consequence" of Citizens United. Outside interests, the monied, are dumping so much cash that the GOP higher-ups are essentially powerless to do anything. How far would Gingrich have gotten if Adelson hadn't propped up his campaign? They will nomininate one of their own (Mittens) come hell or high water. They payed for him, and they will get what they want. The Obama campaign will probably highlight the policy flip-flops, abortion, gun control, etc, and create enough antipathy so that those issue voters stay home on Election day.

MFAWG: I'm cruising the morning talking head shows and watching the Romney operatives get smashed in the face with Bain and tax returns over and over.

I'm starting to think he may not get to the convention, or could face a very strong floor fight if he does.


I know I'm repeating myself from last night's thread, but consider that Citizen's United actually makes a floor fight more likely. Since the SuperPACs control most of the money, they can spend it to support any candidate they want, so it's less catastrophic for the GOP to switch horses.

On the other hand, after seeing the beating Romney is taking, a candidate would have to be pathologically narcissistic to want to step in.

/You know what would be totally awesome? A nominating fight between the SuperPACs, each determined to buy their own guy the nomination. There would not be enough popcorn in the world...

No, it means they couldn't Rastafy him by 10% and name him Poochie as they could Palin. And she had bigger tits.

The GOP didn't care about anything more than marketing with the VP slot. They were pandering to people they know to be suckers, again hedging that they could make up for alienating the low-turnout middle if they appealed to the high-turnout fringe.

They were wrong this time, thank God. It was completely irresponsible of the GOP to allow a dullard Valley girl like Sarah anywhere near the keys to real power.

To be fair, Its understandable that they would be disappointed for not having a true left or left center president. I don't understand the ones who are MORE pissed off at the democrats than the republicans for the republicans' faults. Its like they handwave the GOP's antics with the whole 'Boy will be boys' attitude, almost excusing them while bringing down the pain on the democrats. Its like yelling at the fireman for not handling a massive fire perfectly while giving a pass to the still active arsonist.

But what he wants to do is try and divert any attention from his lack of success and frankly it's beneath the dignity of his office. He ought to apologize for what he's doing and do what he said when he called me.

Barack Obama's been president for four years, and what's the best he can do?

Tonight, I can report to the American people and to the world that the United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of al-Qaeda, and a terrorist who was responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent men, women, and children.

I love this picture. It's the perfect metaphor for the last few days of the Romney campaign.

That guy holding onto the stern for dear life is a perfect representation of Romney watching his campaign go down the tubes while he watches with a "WTF" look on his face.

cameroncrazy1984: Waxing_Chewbacca: It's a running theme from the left that feels POTUS abdomed them. I don't get it. It's like they don't understand that the President is a centrist with a crazy ass right wing House and a filibustering derp filled senate

Some people look at Bush and his five or six years of a rubber-stamp Congress and go "Why can't Obama do that?"


I know. Scary.

NewportBarGuy: No, CEOs have absolutely no responsibility for what occurs in their company. That is why they don't get paid very much. They are just figureheads for the firm. Anyone can do that job. You'll notice a lot of nepotism in the executive suite, and that's because it gives parents a place to put their half-wit offspring so they don't embarrass the family.

This is a well-established fact by some dude who wrote a blog... Or something.


Reminds me of the trial scene from Casino towards the end where the mob bosses are trying to look like weak old men with no actual role.

To be fair, Its understandable that they would be disappointed for not having a true left or left center president. I don't understand the ones who are MORE pissed off at the democrats than the republicans for the republicans' faults. Its like they handwave the GOP's antics with the whole 'Boy will be boys' attitude, almost excusing them while bringing down the pain on the democrats. Its like yelling at the fireman for not handling a massive fire perfectly while giving a pass to the still active arsonist.


Right. I can see them wanting a more left president. Bill was a centrist too. Those who seek to damage the president... Yup, the arsonist anology works for me.
