I don't even consider Romney a flip-flopper, he's just a business man. He's trying to sell a widget, Romney The President. You change your marketing and advertising accordingly to your targeted consumer base. There's no higher principles or beliefs involved here. He's fighting giving specifics the same reason Hormel fights food labeling. No widget maker wants you to know there's lips and arseholes in the bologna.

LOL, if even your own sponsors can't picture what their candidate actually stands for, you've got trouble. He's flip-flopped so hard and so often that you could probably hold a debate between Romney(now()) and Romney(now() - 7 days) and have continually conflicting statements erupt from said discussion.

Beat your foes in the party
Like scraping barnacles off your yacht
You just strategically clipped each gal and guy
Your wife gave it all she's got
You had speeches up on youtube
That you'd hoped we'd all forgot
And your veep picks said "I won't be your partner,
Won't be your partner", and

You're so Bain
The billionaires on Wall Street all tout you
You're so Bain
You know that your ten-forties will out you
Don't you? Don't you?

You governed several years ago
And now we just can't believe
That you signed a big reform of health care
Were a friend to Adam & Steve
But you disavowed the things we loved
So very casually
You hope that you'll be allowed to drink coffee
'llowed to drink coffee, and

You're so Bain
You probably think we'll blow it without you
You're so vain
I'll bet you think nobody could doubt you
Don't you? Don't you?


Well, I hear you went down to Sarasota
And gave those seniors some fun
Now the whole right wing is trying to scapegoat ya
Cause they know that Barack's got this won
Well, you're what you should be all the time
And usually, you're with
Some filthy rich guy with a wife who'll change Depends
Wife who'll change Depends, and

You're so Bain
Why don't you let us go on without you
You're so Bain
I'll bet you think we'll blow it without you
Don't you? Don't you? Don't you?

You took the nomination of the party
Like you were walking onto a yacht
Your tax return strategically dipped below one eye
Your scarf it was apricot
You had one eye in the mirror
As you watched yourself robot
And all the baggers dreamed that they'd be your partner
They'd be your partner, and

You're so vague
Your platform is nothing without you
You're so vague
I'll bet you think policy's beneath you
Don't you? Don't you?

You keynoted several years ago
When I was still quite naive
Well, you grew such a big, loud, nationalist pair
And told the Mexicans all to leave
But you gave away the things you loved
And one of them was the GOP
I had some dreams they were clouds in my coffee
Clouds in my coffee, and

You're so vague
Your platform is nothing without you
You're so vague
I'll bet you think policy's beneath you
Don't you? Don't you?

Meh, that's a bit of a stretch, you're missing the meter of teh song so the reference doesn't really work.

Maybe, "GOP to Romney: You're so vague, we prob'ly think your stance is now past due" or something on the order of that?

Either way, the song is now running through my head, so thanks a farking lot.

//You walked into convention, like you were walking onto your yacht
//Your horse strategically danced in olympics

So Mitt in his official portrait had to include a picture of Ann, putting that with this t3.gstatic.com
Maybe Mitt doesn't really wear the pants in that family.
Maybe it is Ann pushing Mitt to be president, wouldn't explain everything about his campaigning but would explain some of it.

Well done SilentStrider, you've successfully adopted that out-of-date meme to the current election.


Yes. And since I was the first to adapt the meme for the current election, your remark in no way comes across as inane or douchey. Well done.

in college, i used to be a doorman at a local music venue. when some unsuspecting schmuck came to the door and asked what kind of music was playing that night, the conversation would go thusly:

me: "what kind of music do you like?"
schmuck" "reggae"
me: "it's reggae! ten bucks."

this is essentially how romney operates.

Nadie_AZ: CynicalLA: Does he not have any policy specifics or just too scared to tell us about them?

If I had to guess, I bet he supports a lot of what Obama is doing. But to say so would kill him, politically, with his base. So he says nothing.

One of his five main points was. making sure that America's workers are highly trained (ok, good thing, training and education, awesome) but his plan to better train American workers was to stop the training programs Obama had put into place....


Huge tax breaks didn't stimulate the economy, so we need huge tax breaks to stimulate the economy.

Rupert Murdoch, the most powerful voice in conservative media with The Wall Street Journal and Fox News under his control, said on Twitter that "Romney must draw clear line: offer specific path to restore American dream...To win, Romney must open big tent to sympathetic families. Stop fearing far right, which has nowhere else to go."

So the Far Right has nowhere else to go? Well ... bye.
