sprawl15's troll alt: Because he's using Reid to do the dirty work so he doesn't get his hands bloody. Which is tragic - Obama can call up Reid to tell him to lie about Romney, but he apparently can't be bothered to call up Reid and get a jobs bill passed. I mean, it's totally expected considering the four years of laziness we've seen so far, but the extent Obama will go to not do any productive work while playing dirty is always disturbing.

All Reid said was "some people say Romney went 10 yrs and paid no taxes"

and Dana Bash of CNN confirmed the claim from the same source.

Much more sound criticism than the Swiftboaters that Bush/Rove paid to lie for them

Unless he immediately discloses his long form high school report card with no reservations, I'm calling this a fake too.

rudemix: But I know something about you, Mitt went to Cranbrook that's a private school.


And Mitten's parents have real good marriage!

hah have you seen the record obstruction that's gone on in the house and Senate for the past 3 yrs?
Boehner and company can't do anything other than pass I love jesus,the constitution and guns resolutions.
The senate has to have 60 votes to get anything done and that isn't happening because of the GOP

Obama put up a 4 trillion dollar deficit cut. and they turned their nose up at it
They'd laugh at any kind of job stimulus that wasn't 100% tax cuts for the 1%
 
2012-08-07 10:14:16 AM  
I agree with everybody in this thread saying that a person's high school report card says more about their performance in high school than capacity for President, but I do find this kind of stuff interesting.

Maybe the Democrat Party could learn to compromise. If they pass a few jobs bills, maybe the GOP would be more likely to let them bomb people in the Middle East. You gotta give before you take. Something the homos never learned.

Bloody? Too much. Try dirty. Reid just probably doesn't want Romney to be President and doesn't mind flinging poo. Simplest theory is best theory.

Do you need the list of everything Obama has done in his first term (remember he destroyed America)?

2012-08-07 10:33:04 AM  
OK, dude, seriously. The bullying incident was one thing, not so much for what he did at the time as how he has reacted to it (or, more to the point, failed to react to it) in his later years. That's genuinely troubling.

But his high school grades? Seriously? Is that the best they can do? If the search for new dirt on this guy has gone so poorly that they're having to resort to using high school report cards, then perhaps it is time to look for a new campaign strategy.

2012-08-07 10:41:19 AM  

doublesecretprobation: Lurking Fear: Two things: who cares, and probably fake.

probably? you mean his name isn't really "mitt"?


Zalan: almost assuredly a fake, since it would say Romney, Willard (since that is his legal first name)


From his wiki (emphasis added): Romney was preceded in birth by three siblings: Margo Lynn, Jane LaFount, and G. Scott. Mitt followed after a gap of nearly six years. He was named after family friend, hotel magnate J. Willard Marriott, and his father's cousin Milton "Mitt" Romney, a former quarterback for the Chicago Bears.[14] He was called "Billy" until kindergarten, when he indicated a preference for "Mitt".[15]

They were a lot less uptight about legal name on the form etc in 1961 than they are today.

That being said, I'm with you on thinking it's probably fake.

I asked no questions other than How in the holy blue fark is this considered a bad play by Obama?
. The remainder of my post were statements of verifiable fact. And as far as "the answer provided in the post you replied to", is there any factual information that verifies Reid acted at Obama's command? Or is that simply speculation? If Reid acted on his own, how is it a bad play by Obama?
 
2012-08-07 10:42:37 AM  
Yeah... so... I was going to try to come up with something sarcastic but I can't get over the fact that people are responding to someone explicitly calling themselves a troll's troll alt.

More_Like_A_Stain: How in the holy blue fark is this considered a bad play by Obama? Obama has already released 12 years of his tax returns, and been hounded for years that the birth certificates (unprecedented for any President to release publicly) were insufficient. By any reasonable count, Romney is down by two, at minimum. He needs to play a bit of "catch up" before he's in any position to demand new releases.


Obama endured the Birther bullshiat twice, and released 2 different birth certificates, I'd say Mitt was down three minimum.

However, comments on his progress suggest an initial tendency toward overconfidence and underperformance.

I was being overly generous by lumping the entire Birther nonsense into one continuous ordeal. But you are correct. And none of that takes into account that Romney has pulled this same exact tax shenanigans before in other campaigns for other offices.

Sad. That sounds exactly like I was in school. I would easily ace the start of the class and so I would stop paying attention. Then I would get completely lost.

I said nothing of Reid. Obama is asking for info from others, while others are asking for info from him. What we want to see from Mitt is FAR more important. But, when asking for info from someone, it is wise to release what they are asking for, if it is something as innocuous as school records. We are certain that Obama can be proud of his school history, right? So show how awesome it is, and they are left with their excuses for Mitt with nothing left to ask of Obama, regarding his past.

That's a whole lot of nothing.

Obama is asking for info from others, while others are asking for info from him. What we want to see from Mitt is FAR more important.

Yes it is, especially when Mitt has demanded the same info from opponents in other races, and refused to release his own. It really does give the impression that he's hiding something really bad. And on top of that, his wife states that "you people have been given all you need to know", and that releasing any more info will be damaging to the campaign. Great way to sweep it under the rug there, Princess.

But, when asking for info from someone, it is wise to release what they are asking for, if it is something as innocuous as school records.

But if it's something important like tax records that could answer real questions regarding the candidates business dealings when those same dealings are an integral part of the campaign, well fark 'em.

We are certain that Obama can be proud of his school history, right? So show how awesome it is, and they are left with their excuses for Mitt with nothing left to ask of Obama, regarding his past.

Let's reach a point of parity before we start making any more ridiculous demands.

So did I, earlier. I also said:

s2s2s2: I don't think he owes it to us to release his school records, either. But in ANY situation where documents are withheld "what's he hiding?" is going to be the question.


Are we discussing how to play the game, as it is(the way the GOP even stays toe to toe[let alone wins so often], while peddling derp)?
Or is it about how you'd like the game to be played?

If I recall correctly, Mittens was admitted to Stanford before he debarked on his Mormon mission. How that happened w/ those grades can only be explained by who his dad was.

miss diminutive: Judging someone based on their highschool report card? No thanks. He's got plenty other things to be criticized for, this isn't one of them.


My grades were a lot better than him and I wasn't allowed into an ivy league school. It's not so much about Mitt as it is the system of generational wealth.
