consider this: TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: I like how the first line in this submission is nowhere to be found in the linked article. Gud jorb subs.

What's that matter? What subby submitted is exactly what happened earlier today.


[citation needed].

Because all I've heard is that someone said Romney MAY be a felon . And that is absolutely true. Either he lied to the SEC (a felony), or lied to the American people about when he left Bain. There's no middle ground; he's either a felon or your run-of-the-mill liar who's terrified of his base finding out he profited off abortions.

Sounds like you're the one who needs some air. Obama is on board with all the attacks on Romney. To think he's unaware of what's going to be said before it is said makes you pretty gullible.

dahmers love zombie: Republicans: Obama is a socialist, America-hating, apologist, Muslim, Kenyan, big-government, white-hating, communist, Teleprompter-reading, tax-and-spend, baby-killing gun-grabber!

Democrats: Romney's company has a proven record of cutting jobs, investing in union-busting companies, outsourcing, and firing people,

Republicans: OMG NEGATIVE CAMPAIGINING CAN'T WE BE CIVIL??!??


Evidently not when you act like uncivilized, lying, ruthless primitives. You don't deserve the courtesy of being treated like civilized human beings.

Considering that a poll released today shows Romney with a 1 point lead, you might be doing more than missing it. Sobbing in a corner sounds about right.


Poll aggregators like 538 show Obama with a 70% chance of winning.

Sensei Can You See: RexTalionis: Obama is technically correct. Nobody called Romney a felon

No, all they did was say he might have committed one.

Technically, if Obama raped a cow on the White House lawn he would be guilty of bestiality and cruelty to animals. But technically I didn't say he did that.


You're really bad at this. Are you tired? You sound tired.

He's right. Nobody called Mitt Romney a felon. All anybody said is that lying to the SEC is a felony. Unless Mitt Romney is admitting he lied to the SEC...

Raoul Eaton: Isn't this rather old news by now? But if the Romney campaign wants to keep reviving the Romney=felon word association, it's okay by me.
Romney felon link


Hey, I don't know that there's any proof that Mitt Romney is a felon. If Mitt Romney is a felon, I think that those who are calling Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney a felon need to lay out the facts about Mitt Romney being a felon. Otherwise, they shouldn't be saying Mitt Romney = felon, because that would not be appropriate. It would also not be appropriate to say that Mitt Romney is a criminal, nor would it be nice and/or apropos to claim that Mitt Romney is an animal abuser, for that matter. And saying something like "Mitt Romney is a tax cheat"? Right out of bounds. "Mitt Romney is a tax cheat." How unproven a statement is that? Mitt Romney, a tax cheat? That certainly hasn't been proven in a court, so for all we know, it isn't true.

Feel free to quote this in your reply. I think it's important that the truth be read about statements like "Mitt Romney is a felon".

Whoah. Am I reading this thread right? Are you guys saying that Romney, (and by that I mean Willard Scott Romney) may be a Felon?
And by that I mean someone who is guilty of committing a felony, which is a kind of crime? And a bad, crime, too, the kind you wouldn't want to have a president who is guilty of?

Because that doesn't sound right: Romney, felon. Romney, felon, Romney, felon. See? It even LOOKs funny when you write it like that. Romney Felon Romney Felon Romney Felon Romney Felon.

It seems to lose all meaning when you just repeat it over and over like that, like it just becomes sounds...

That is a doozy of a pickle. I wonder if Mitt looks to his father for advice on situations like this?

God Is My Co-Pirate: I said it before, if I were Obama's campaign chief, I would be out there every day. "Nobody is calling Mitt Romney a felon. We absolutely reject any insinuation that Mitt Romney is a felon. Why, Mitt Romney himself says that Mitt Romney is not a felon, and if you can't trust Romney, you can you trust? No, Mitt Romney is definitely not a felon. Felon."


If Mitt Romney were to say he is not a felon, I would take him at his word.

I really doubt that Romney is a felon, but there are places on the Internet where people have argued about whether Romney might be a felon.  Also, they've argued about whether Romney is a whiner.

What attacks? It seems like all of the Republicans in this thread are just jumping to conclusions. The Obama campaign isn't at all saying that Romney is a felon. They're just theorizing. Asking questions. Presenting possibilities, if you will. As defensive as the Republicans are getting, you'd think they have something to hide...

well seeing that the American people find that the color of the skin of his teeth is a more electable color, i'd say that would only better his chances of winning the election.

2012-08-20 07:46:40 PM  

RexTalionis: Relevant statement in question:

Deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter laid out the issue as the Obama team sees it: "Either Mitt Romney, through his own words and his own signature, was misrepresenting his position at Bain to the SEC, which is a felony."

"Or," she said, "he was misrepresenting his position at Bain to the American people to avoid responsibility for some of the consequences of his investments," including layoffs and the outsourcing of jobs.

If the latter is true, she said, it's a "real character and trust issue" that voters should be aware of as they decide who to vote for in the presidential election. If Romney was still at Bain through 2002, he's also "politically responsible for the consequences" of deals that the firm made through then.

Obama is technically correct. Nobody called Romney a felon . A felon is convicted of a felony. Romney is clearly not. Rather, Obama's spokeswoman is suggesting that Romney might've misrepresented his status to the SEC, which could be a felony.


It's obviously not a felony because Romney is very wealthy. Consequences of laws apply to the little people and rich who piss off the even richer.

I don't know where you're getting your info, but this guy knows his shiat more than anybody else. Obama's up by 2, not down by 1.

As it stands right now, Romney's got a 30% chance to win, and those odds are still way too damn high for me.

2012-08-20 07:48:47 PM  
Whoa, hold on, wait a second!

There's a rumor going around that MITT ROMNEY possibly might have COMMITTED A FELONY? I'd like to know if it's true or not, because if it is true then that means MITT ROMNEY COMMITTED A FELONY!

Of course, I would never accuse MITT ROMNEY of being a FELON without proof; and there's also the fact that MITT ROMNEY can easily prove he is not a FELON if he'd just release his tax returns. I'm just concerned that his failure to do so could result in many people wondering whether or not MITT ROMNEY IS A FELON! And the longer he delays in releasing his tax returns, the more people will ask if MITT ROMNEY COMMITTED A FELONY!

I apologize if this mini-rant may have further cemented the alleged word association between the words "MITT ROMNEY" and "FELON." I am merely voicing my concern.
