...Seriously Mitt who's running your campaign? David Alxerod?

F*cking moron.

Well, to be fair, the Heinz family DID make their fortune by buying up tomato farms, taking all the tomatoes, burning down the plants, then investing the profits in French mustard farms.

I can only assume that the job of running Mitt's campaign went to the lowest bidder.

I haven't seen anything from the GOP this year - from the primaries till this latest debacle - that's shaken my belief that the whole thing is just being filmed for the next Christopher Guest/Eugene Levy movie.

I think Romney is just hoping for a "Desert One" type of disaster I think he realizes he can't win otherwise.

he.... does know that obama's bin laden mission was a success, doesn't he?

god, to have been a fly on the wall in a republican enclave when THAT news broke! i mean, they cheered when chicago lost its olympic bid. i can only assume they cried and wailed when they found out that the bin laden raid was a success.

I think she'd make a great Ann Romney. The absurdity factor would be hilarious. I can see her wearing $1,000 wil clown sweaters.

That's cool, Mitt. You can not release anything and then go on to have a successful campaign like his wife did.

It's almost like Mitt Romney is taking advice from the sarcastic twitter feeds of hipsters from Williamsburg.

Amazing.

Oliver: Chocolate eclair.

Oliver: I've run the polling numbers. Turns out what Americans want in a president is "Chocolate Eclair"
Milo: That's ridiculous.
Oliver: No, just silly. "Peanut farmer" was ridiculous.

"John Kerry ran for president," Mitt Romney said Monday morning on "Fox & Friends." "You know, his wife, who has hundreds of millions of dollars, she never released her tax returns. Somehow, this wasn't an issue."

um...because Kerry's wife wasn't running for office, you idiot.

Romney's tax returns would reveal earnings from both the Tyrell Corporation and Cyberdyne Systems.

Vodka Zombie: But... but... Mitt Romney has Patriot and Freedom and Reagan.


I'm reminded of a scene from the first episode of Game of Thrones.

Tyrion, the dwarf is sitting on a step, putting his boots on. A man sits behind him and asks if he is going out for the hunt. Tyrion replies- I love hunting. It is my favorite thing to do, to which the other man tells him it isn't hunting if you pay for it.

Romney didn't win those, he paid for them.

I think it's nice that Romney's given total control of his campaign strategy to those guys who designed the AMC Gremlin for his Dad.

I'm old enough to recall one editorial cartoonist habitually depicting George Bush in a dress with a handbag. Alas, my Google-fu isn't turning up any of them.

Still, I suspect this has almost unlimited potential to blow up in Romney's face.
 
2012-07-16 03:51:26 PM
So after taking a week's worth of beatings on the Bain Capital issue, this was his big counter-attack. That's like sending Kathy Griffin armed with a pointy stick into Abbottabad.

Really.

If you DO want to use the "But MooOOOom, they started it" strategy, at least use an example that has a little relevance.

FTFA:On Sunday, senior Romney adviser Ed Gillespie claimed that Romney need only release two years of tax returns, in line with the precedent set by former presidential nominees John McCain and John Kerry.

I have a blond, blue-eyed Morrocan friend (Alexander The Great genes, his parents both are olive-skinned with jet black hair) who worked in the US for a while. He said he got into trouble for checking the African-American box on a form once because he wasn't aware it was the politically-correct term for blah people.

Yup. I occasionally climb with a chick from South Africa. She's quite white. She's got dual citizenship status, I think. She's African American, but doesn't say that.

What I don't understand is WHY Romney won't release his tax returns?

I cannot imagine any logical reason not too. The best case is that he wants to maintain his privacy. The worst cases range from he's got more money in other places/sources that can embarass him (like Bain after 1999) to questionable actions (Swiss bank account not reported?).

/Maybe you shouldn't have run for President, Mr. Romney.

Newsflash for the Romney Campaign; Your man is running against Obama not Kerry.

Bunch of Rove wannabe's running his campaign

It's a combination of two things I believe

1) Never concede anything to Obama has potentially become so ingrained into GOP thinking that they still do it even when it looks bad.

2) They've made a calculated decision that what is in the tax returns is so bad that it's worth taking the heat.

thismomentinblackhistory: Attacking the wife of a guy you're not even running against...stay classy, Mitt.


He's got the first debate all planned out.

While she is answering this first question his buddies will jump on her, hold her down, and he'll cut her hair. He'll proceed to run around the stage in a figure-eight pattern holding the scissors and her hair high above his head screaming "BAIN CAPITAL FOR LIFE, BEEYATCH!"
 
2012-07-16 04:35:20 PM
What Romney should do is lay low until July 30th. That way once a few million Americans have seen Bane destroy Gotham and beat up Batman he can say "Sure, we destroyed a lot of towns with Bain Capital, but at least we did destroy Gotham. Amirite?"

By the end of this, he'll be cross promoting Batman and Capital One cards.

"What's in your wallet, Batman?"

take your pick:

1. don't give the uppity peasants anything every. f*ck 'em.
2. whatever is in those returns is bad. like 'sink the campaign' bad. so they're gonna keep them out of the public view and just ride it out.
3. Its Obama doing the asking. WTF is that guy's problem?

Eventually it'll be the Media asking the question... not because they particularly care, but because they smell blood in the water. Scandal drives ratings. Ratings mean money.
