When I see the health care debate in the US (Medicare specifically), I feel like all other industrialized countries have indoor plumbing and the US is debating where they should tear down their outhouses and have people shiat in the bushes instead.

Exactly.

I think the GOP puppetmasters convinced Ryan to agree to this to put him in position to run in 2016. Paired with a true moderate, he might even have a chance.

Unless Hillary runs.

Wrong

1) Romney spent the Vietnam war in France
2) he recently embarrassed himself and offended people on a 3 country tour
3) he has had several undocumented foreigners working for him

Nate Silver has Obama's reelection chances at 72%.

His Now-Cast stands at 80%.


Nowcast doesnt really mean anything. Not sure why he posts it.

Right now Romney is talking about how after Paul Ryan's dad died, his family got together and taught him the meaning of hard work which enabled him to succeed. No mention that Ryan got social security benefits because his dad died which paid for his college.

One thing I have to wonder. About 30 minutes after this slip was made, I flipped by Fox News to see their take on the pick. They showed the introduction video with Romney saying "the next Vice President". Now did the Romney team reshoot the video or was Fox News nice enough to edit it for them?

I understand you cant follow cause and effect. What i do know of Mr Biden son is he chose to risk his life to protect America, which I believe is a family ethos.

I do not believe Mr Romney is righteous enough instill that in his children, that is my argument.

I encourage you to live a better life, be honost with yourself see your own failing.

Isn't Obama a dick? Romney gives us a stupid gaffe at least once a day and you poor souls have to cling to the 57 states thing from years ago. He's not a giver.


Plus, he loves his wife, dotes on his daughters and hasn't even kicked his dog since he's been in office. It's so unfair!

Bush had several advantages that Romney doesn't. He could play to dumb southern vote by successfully pretending to be a dumb hick himself. Those who were only interested in the bottom knew him as fellow elitist from the east coast looking out for their interests and voted/funded him appropriately. He played well to the Jesus crowd and appeared to be a true believer of the right sect to the religious bigots. And he was able to play his military experience and later his wars into convincing voters he was better on defense. And he avoided unnecessarily pissing off minorities by selecting some for his cabinet.

The only thing out of that list that Romney can count on right now is the elitist vote/funding, and maybe he can pull some more libertarians in with Paul Ryan. Romney also doesn't have the advantage of going against weak campaigns like Al Gore or John Kerry ran, he going up against Barack Obama, who previously ran the best campaign I've seen in my lifetime. Plus Romney isn't even a likeable person, a quality that both Bush and Obama share which gives them yet another distinct advantage.

There is still a small chance that Romney can win, but it would require something completely out of the blue which nobody sees coming at this point. If the status quo is maintained until the election Romney doesn't stand a chance.

Gwyrddu: Bocasio: At least Joe Bidens son had the stones to pick up a rifle

According to Mitt Romney the draft dodger, his sons volunteering for the campaign is the same thing. I'm sure Romney will insure his sons get tax breaks for their brave sacrifice, maybe cut VA funding to pay for it.

As for Mitt's gaffe, it is probably the least stupid thing he's said this week. Give it another day and I'm sure we'll have something dumber from him to talk about.


It's pretty sad when calling your VP choice "the next president" is the LEAST stupid thing you've said in any 7-day period.

Frozboz: Fox News just played another version of this, with it edited and corrected, saying "Vice President". Did he announce him twice?


Yeah, it seems like it. The Fox News clip is from a slightly different part of the speech than the "next president" part. Worked out great for Fox News. They get to show Romney introducing Ryan all they want, but don't have to remind anybody about the gaffe if they don't feel like it.

I think this is just further proof that 2012 is a placeholder year for the Republicans. They clearly have no intention of winning the White House. And by going ever further to the right, I think they're endangering a few of their House and Senate seats.
