In the '08 crash, Mitt Romney, like many others, took losses in his investments. With a net zero income, Romney applied for and received food stamps from the state of Massachusetts.

Real Americans don't fact-check.

Marcus Aurelius: We gutted welfare back in the 90's. There's not much left to get upset about. Maybe the GOP would be happier if we just brought back indentured servitude.

Indentured servitude is a slander term for servitude of personal responsibility. If you can't pay your debts by your own means you will be made responsible and your creditor will get to decide how you will live up to your responsibility. No debt no problem. Don't let people steal by not paying back loans.

RumsfeldsReplacement: Duke Phillips' Singing Bears: FlashHarry: romney is a racist, lying sack of shiat. that's all.

No. Romney just wants to be President. Everything he does is in service of that. If he lies, it's not because he is a liar (although the act of lying makes him one) it's because he is ambitious and wants to be president. If he acts like a sack of sh*t, it's not because he is a sack of sh*t (although the act of acting like a sack of sh*t does make him one), it's because he is ambitious and wants to be president.

My only question is why. Why in the hell does he want to be President?

Honestly, my guess is Mitt wants to be President because his dad never was, and Mitt needs that as some sort of weird validation thing.

On that note, I think Obama should mention Mitt's tax returns in the first 5 minutes of the first debate, and close the comment by saying "Your father would be so ashamed of you". Mitt would be completely flustered for the rest of it.

Mr.Tangent: "Fact checkers come to this with their own sets of thoughts and beliefs, and we're not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact checkers,"

If this were the case they wouldn't be fact checkers, they would be spin doctors.

It's like they think Ryan and Romney are above critique. Like two princes or something.

Duke Phillips' Singing Bears: That's what I'm saying. Unless you believe that nihilism is, itself, evil - and I can certainly see the merit in such an argument - then Mitt Romney is not evil. He's just piling up honors and wealth for himself, for no other reason than that is what he does.

Well, while I don't believe Mitt Romney himself is evil (in part because that, in some ways, obviates him of responsibility: He only does bad things because that's all he can do, like a rabbiatchewing on crap), I will say that the way he does such is evil. But that's because I think I've gained a good bit of my definition of sin/evil from a Terry Pratchett book.

"And sin, young man, is when you treat people as things. Including yourself. That's what sin is."
"It's a lot more complicated than that--"
"No it ain't. When people say things are a lot more complicated than that, they means they're getting worried that they won't like the truth. People as things, that's where it starts."
"Oh, I'm sure there are worse crimes-"
"But they Starts with thinking about people as things..."

Obviously the Romney campaign is to be commended for knowing the difference between Libfacts™ (verifiable data which runs counter to The Holy Narrative) and The Truth™ (rumors, innuendo and falsehoods that support The Holy Narrative).

clevershark: If Romney somehow ekes out a win I think we Canadians should build a fence along our southern border...

Maybe we could reach an accord of some kind... build the wall at the Mason-Dixon line and just have a fully open border between the northern U.S. and Canada.

d23: They're not screwed. If the U.S. public cared about honesty, logic, and facts then Willard would of been flat out on his ass months ago.

It's the most illogical and unfair campaign season since the gilded age. Mittens could release a video where if screws a black boy on the hood of his car and he would still get the right-wing nutter vote.

I think that is called a sandsusky continental.
