Hows it going eh? My name is Stephen Harper, the supreme leader of Alberta and newest raquetball partner to China. Let me be clear, I am a big deal so when I say Romney is a fine fella, you can take that to the bank. Let me be clear, when I say take that to the bank, I mean to the bank of Canada, the safest bank in the whole world that has spared Canada, my conservative utoptia of a vicious recession the rest of the world has fallen into thanks to my governments stingy policies. My good friend Romney knows this too well, he's a frequent guest to the bank of Canada. If hes my good friend he should be yours too because my
name is Stephen Harper, and I am a big deal.

-thumbs up-

Everytime I see that picture I feel as if I'm about to get molested.


That kitty looks like it's either dead or about to will itself to die.

tricycleracer: In '08, a friend from college deleted my on Facebook because I voted for Obama. "He's a Marxist ideologue who is going to destroy America and confiscate all guns."

Should I wait until 2016 to start farking with him or should I start in November?


Just ask him to explain to you what Marxism is. See how well he does.

The sad thing about this media dodge is that Romney is this clever so he can win the Base that's forced to vote for him. Yeah, he's so cunning, destroying his chances with the moderates only to endear himself against the guy that NO REPUBLICAN WOULD VOTE FOR ANYWAY.

The sad thing about propaganda is that you hit a point where you can't return and have to play it straight-faced. Even when it's incredibly stupid and even makes the Base flinch for an instant, you have to milk it for everything that it's worth. That's why we got the big media push today about how Obama is in trouble because...um...and Romney's foreign trip push is completely ignored. At this point, the Republicans are running scared because they know Romney does not have it at this point to be in the running. He's a dead duck already, and he was their best shot.

And the scary thing is, with this much hatred, it's hard to see the Republicans being able to spin their own base when Obama wins a second term. The Republicans will all be seen as failures, and 2014 will be a bloodbath for them. There's no way to rally this much anger and hatred and suddenly back out of it.

Some Bass Playing Guy: I'm beginning to wonder if these alleged "gaffes" are really just carefully scripted to pander to the far right. It's not really a secret that teabaggers aren't exactly in Romney's camp. And anything he can say to appeal to their narrow world view can't hurt.

The thing that kills me is that NONE of the people who I know who claim to support Romney can articulate much in the way of why they think Romney is a good choice. Almost all of it centers around getting Obama out of office because Obama's policies are (among other things) driving us into the poorhouse.


I think if he was saying those things on purpose, he'd wouldn't be issuing so many awkward retractions.

Doesn't take a large majority of anti- intellectualists to overthrow reason. Just look at my homeland, China. How many millions died for simply being educated? Republicans are slowing morphing into their own worst enemy; which is every evil foreign power the US has ever espoused to stand against.

Man, I hope you're right. About everything.

The only thing we need to pray for, then, is no viable 3d party candidate to siphon off Obama's votes.

Fluorescent Testicle: Weaver95: yup - that was Limbaugh's theme for his opening 20 min rant - that Romney is winning, that what Romney is saying is what 'every real amurikan' believes is true.

Of course, the Pudding King completely missed the minor detail that, if this is true, it just makes Romney look even dumber. Accidentally throwing the election via honest stupidity is one thing; accidentally throwing the election via calculated stupidity designed to gain half as many votes as he's going to end up losing because of it? Hurr.


There's your problem dude, you are thinking like a rational human being. In derp land what Romney did is considered "teh awesome". He pissed off socialist western Europeans, gave Israel's neocon supporters an analingus, and he didn't forget Poland while having a surrogate curse out the evil liberal mainstream MSM media. In their reality there were no gaffes and the trip was a rousing success. Seriously.

mahuika: ParallelUniverseParking: You mean he did that to impress Americans who would vote for Romney anyway...because their only other option would be to vote for "nazi-socialist Kenyan antichrist President Obama" which would never happen? And in the meantime he accepted alienating less conservative swing voters, who would actually matter, with his behavior?

Doesn't sound like a good strategy to me.

On the derptastic right, quite a few of them are actually saying they're only voting local elections


I had a Republican say that to me and I almost called him a liar to his face. If they go into the polling place, they are going to pull that lever for the GOP. They will hold their nose and vote for Romney. If they stay home and sit it out, ok. But no way are they going to show up at the voting booth and just vote local and not vote for President.

404 page not found: ExperianScaresCthulhu: i know a couple who get so red in the face

What kills me, and by that I mean laughter out loud, is how willingly these same folks put anti-0bama bumper stickers above their truck nutz. I saw a little Toyota Tacoma today with a bumper sticker on it. There was an image of Obama with the "O" symbol. The text read "Does this ass make my truck look big?"

Um, no bro, you're still driving a small foreign truck.


Omigod. Do you live in my neighborhood? Only mine is the old, old dude with the handicap placard and the king supercab with anti-Obama stickers trashing up the bumper. It's always old, old white or white looking people (this is New Mexico) with the brazilian anti-Obama stickers on the back of their rides. I did see one young woman -- one -- with anti-Obama stickers....... on a farking electric piss green Volkswagon Beetle. Blew my mind. I was like, WTF? oh yeah, and she also had an environmental sticker.

I think she was trolling. If you live out here, maybe you've seen her.

But yeah, I know in 5 seconds whether or not its okay to talk politics with an older person. The super christians really hate him. But again, Romney's a Mormon who's political actions have all been firmly in RINO territory before he got the unofficial nomination this year. I have way more respect for folks who are going to vote third party, than who go through mental gymnastics to convince themselves its okay to vote for some dude they'd normally spit on for his track record just to get Obama out of office.

Nobody is that good. He demonstrates again and again his complete inability to just say something positive about ANYTHING. Offered a cookie: "Heh heh those look like 7-11 cookies!"


I heard about that. When receiving a gift, you say 'thank you'. Maybe ask who donated them, and then publically praise them for doing so. Calling something 7-11 cookies? He just dissed a major corporation and the bakery which tried to curry his favor by donating them.

Dude has no diplomacy skills. That was an easy one and he actually said that. i don't know what's wrong with him. Even assholes can have charisma, or will know how to diss but make it sound like a compliment. Romney, I just don't know. Dude doesn't have a filter. That's fine for home, but not for a President. Dude is just lucky he's got the 50s white sideburns action going, because if he looked like anything else except a dude from the 50s he wouldn't have made it even this far.
