Only Mitt Romney is saying that. And since when has Myths begun to equal flat out lying?
 
2012-08-14 09:42:56 AM  
"This guy's a real leader," Romney told CBS News on Sunday. "He's reached across the aisle. He's worked with Democrats, Republicans. Tried to take on the toughest issues America faces."

are we even in the same universe anymore...?

I'm sure this is well written, unbiased and brings both sides of the ailse to the same point and paints the two parties in the same light!

Yay journalism

Wyden voted against Ryan's budget and said Romney's characterization of their work was dishonest.

They totally pwned you Wyden, that will teach ya.

I would hope that few people would ever assume Paul Ryan is 'bipartisan'. Hell, he's the sort that would torpedo his own party if he thought that it was going a direction he didn't agree with.

An all or nothing sort. For him it's 'My Way or I'll set fire to the house'.

If we went to war with Iraq based on a myth, legally speaking, nobody could be prosecuted later. So, I'd say around that time.

"Bipartisan"? I haven't even heard that one before.

Or does "Bipartisan" now mean "Hasn't been caught screeching about the BIRTH CERTIFICT on camera yet"?

Whenever Republicans hear the word "bipartisan", they reach for their revolvers.

Bipartisanship is date rape.

And no, the two sides are not exactly the same.

Bipartisan shiat is an elitist, aristocratic buzzword. It's essentially an argument that elections shouldn't matter - if the true desire is to have us only pass bills which the parties agree on, then the elections become irrelevant, because it doesn't matter who holds the majority.

Elections have consequences. At least, they should.

Your recipe for gridlock has already been patented.

Definitely not. One of the toughest issues America faces right now is a high unemployment rate. A lot of people don't have jobs, which means no disposable income, which means a poor economy. So what does Paul Ryan propose? A plan that would drastically increase the unemployment rate.

Anyone who thinks Paul Ryan's plan will help the country is either rich or stupid.

What happened to the article on Soledad OBrien reading straight from this blog on her show? It was just on Fark less then 5 minutes ago and then it was yanked.

"He has introduced many bills, including a Social Security privatization measure in 2004 so far-reaching that the Bush White House called it "irresponsible.""

Now that's some quality fail right there.

Mitt is obviously correct. Don't any of you speak English?

From now on I'm calling him Myth Romney.

I'm actually kind of surprised he even said it. These days, telling Republicans you've reached across the aisle is a fast track to getting ousted from the party.

Step 1 elect a republican as a democrat.

step 2 get together and propose legislation

step 3 ?

step 4 profit

That only makes sense if you totally ignore the concept of compromise for the greater good. In other words, if you're a Republican.

Yes. We all live in a world where large media outlets do not feel it is their place to fact-check statements by politicians.

They don't check the democrats either. The republicans are just better at getting their accusations of dishonesty on air. Whether the original statement was true or not.

"Would"? Try "Did".

Well, there was an idiotic NRO piece that "proved" Ryan had bi-partisan appeal, by repeatedly winning his district, a "Democratic Stronghold" that "hadn't voted for a GOP President since 1984."

Reality, his district voted for Bush twice, and has a Partisan Voting Index of +2% points for Republicans.

I see this is shaping up to be the campaign of "A lie repeated often enough..."
 
2012-08-14 04:26:17 PM  
Just think .... this guy has a 50-50 shot at being in the White House.
Scares me as much as a potential Palin presidency.
