In the race between rhetoric and reality, reality apparently wins.

Sure, it wins by a slim margin, but it still has the advantage.

There are pages of words in the dictionary with "ass" in them. That filter would get overworked.

"Ubisoft announces new version of donkeydonkeyin's creed for next christmas"
"American ambdonkeyador to Lybia donkeydonkeyed in Benghazi"

etc...

Clearly, this is due to a biased media refusing to report anything negative about Obama.

I'll repeat this in every thread till November: Romney smiles at the thought of Americans dying. To him, they are only political tools, and he doesn't give a shiat about their lives.

You'd have to be insane to vote for such a man.

A presidential race that has been neck-and-neck for months suddenly isn't.

Only Fox News and other equally partisan right-wing media outlets have been saying that it was remotely close.

you have the actual quote? I heard that earlier and every news story on it is a copy of the others. Headline says "$250,000 and below" and body says "$200,000 to $250,000" but none provide the actual quote

No, I saw the same article. The exact quote was:

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Is $100,000 middle income?

MITT ROMNEY: No, middle income is $200,000 to $250,000 and less.

So it appears my excitement was premature.

Whatever libs; the non-partisan Citizens United poll just showed Romney having 8% more support in Missouri than in any other poll done of the state before this, and that is after Obama got his convention bump.

Come November 7th you libs are gonna be SO pissed, lol.

Here's the exact quote:

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Is $100,000 middle income?

MITT ROMNEY: No, middle income is $200,000 to $250,000 and less. So number one, don't reduce- or excuse me, don't raise taxes on middle-income people, lower them. Number two, don't reduce the share of taxes paid by the wealthiest. The top 5% will still pay the same share of taxes they pay today. That's principle one, principle two. Principle three is create incentives for growth, make it easier for businesses to start and to add jobs. And finally, simplify the code, make it easier for people to pay their taxes than the way they have to now.


lots of websites are gonna have to run a correction

2012-09-14 10:42:25 AM  
At this point Romney's only hope is to do very well at the debate and for Obama to tank -- and while by all accounts Romney is a good debater, it seems likely that tax return issue is going to come up, and it will look like Romney has some secret he's hiding, and people will fixate on that.

depends on the length of my trip. Usually I'm just going from Columbus Circle to W 79th if I am taking the train at all so I'll deal with the heat since it usually comes with a far less intense press of sweaty humanity

I watch CBS News virtually every night. They've been calling it "neck-and-neck" for months.

Clowns in my Coffee: In before the apologists let him off the hook for "and less."


let him off the hook for what? The fact that he said "and less" means the hook shouldn't have been there in the first place. Granted, he didn't put a lower end of the range on that but that's not really what you're trying to be outraged about, is it?
 
2012-09-14 10:43:56 AM  
WTF does "$200,000 to $250,000 and less" mean?

Less than $250,000 but more than $200,000? That would seem to be the case since he said "No" when asked if $100,000 was middle-income.

This is after he denies having read the studies he cites to support his tax plan. Real presidential material right there.
