Romneys biggest problem is that he doesn't get pissed. I seriously think he doesn't know what it means to get pissed.

He seems to me to be an angry control freak who has his best missionary appearance while in public.

This is like Rocky 6. Mitt's got a great small business, he shows up, tells stories, eats for free.

Then he see a black guy on TV he wants to beat up. Using all the wisdom he has left, he decides to get in the ring.

And loses.

Grabbing a bottle and breaking it on the bar is a HORRIBLE idea unless you know what you're doing. Isn't that an excellent way to just end up with a fistful of broken glass?

... Actually that rather typifies his campaigning so far, doesn't it.

Lies, most likely. It doesn't matter to the right that the Swifboat Veterans or Breitbart were caught in big lies. It doesn't matter that Gingrich was a serial adulterer claiming to champion family values. What matters is that they stuck it to the libs. So when they say "fight back" they want a fight with ideological fury rather than truth.

Wait what was Romney doing in coach?

Mitt decided to run for president for the same reason high-heeled New York housewives want to open restaurants - they're bored and they have too much money.

I'm trying to think of the last politics headline that made me laugh out loud.

This was definitely a winner, subby.
 
2012-07-16 05:59:33 PM
It's hard to imagine a worse candidate for the GOP to run. People are pissed about the gap between the rich and the poor, about jobs going overseas, about the rich not paying their fair share, and the GOP runs the POSTER CHILD for all of those issues -- some silver-spoon rich kid who founded a company based on raping and killing American companies, keeps his millions in off-shore accounts, and pays a fraction of the average American's tax rate.

And he's a dork who belongs to a strict, fringe religion that doesn't allow drinking and swearing. Could the GOP find a candidate that Americans relate to LESS?

Felgraf: MyRandomName: No bigotry like liberal bigotry!

Guys... guys. We made fun of Mitt's weird religion, and I think that may have been insensitive to the feelings of some of our resident right wingers for purely political reasons.

Now, never mind that a lot of them were calling Mormonism a "cult" back during the Anybody-But-Mittens phase of the primary. He's the unofficial nominee now, and we should all pause to remember that some people are suddenly very sensitive to these sorts of remarks. And after all, isn't sudden sensitivity the awfullest kind?

Come on, MyRandomName, I'll give you a hug.

Romney doesn't have any serious amunition to attack with. Obama is wrong on any number of issues, but wherever he's wrong the GOP manages to be even more wrong. Furthermore, they've been smearing him since his inauguration, and the lies have only managed to unite the base while thoroughly discrediting them in the eyes of everyone else. Romney can keep lying and probably lose in a landslide, or he can make legitimate attacks and leave himself open to more effective attacks regarding his own policies, with a nice hypocrisy charge on top. He just doen't have any good options.

Rich people can be notoriously cheap. Anyone who has ever worked as a waiter or bartender can tell you that.

Rmoney strikes me as the type of guy that would tip less than five bucks on a $200 check.

The real problem is that the Republicans ran out a string of losers and wing-nuts to run against a popular incumbent and the last man standing, Romney, is unpopular with his own party, let alone the general populace. He has glaring flaws that were made even more obvious during the highly divisive but entertaining primaries. The Republicans themselves provided a ton of ammunition to be used against Romney and the President is just getting warmed up. When Karl Rove comes out sounding like that YouTube kid defending Brittany Spears you know you have a problem. We are witnessing the implosion of the GOP, the slow but unstoppable inertia of failure they've been heading toward for the last decade.
