Let's be real, the part where Romney claims he inherited nothing and made his fortune from scratch is the weirdest part.

Shrugging Atlas: mrshowrules: I have to go to bed soon. I thought the video was was epic failure but the press conference video actually is beyond that if possible

I completely agree. This press conference was just farking painful. The guy's such a off-the-charts dick he can't even see the problem with his comments, much less make a genuine apology for them or even be bothered to issue "Covered my ass" nopology. As amazing as it is to believe he'd been better off just saying nothing at all, at least tonight. Instead the morning news is going to run the audio from the fund raiser AND excerpts of him being a dick at this presser as well.

And you just farking KNOW when this was over tonight he turned to one of his aides and said, "Nailed it."



His uncomfortable smirk while he walked out on the questions was hilarious. God, he's such an asshole. He's such an asshole it's hard to narrow down a top 20 list of "Moments where Mitt Romney reveals that He's a Clueless Douchebag" but if such a list were made, his little comment about how he wishes he was Latino should go on there.
 
It takes epic levels of Not Getting It for him to assume that if he'd been born as part of a racial minority that he'd still be the incredibly wealthy son of a governor who went to the best prep schools and universities in the country- or that he'd be where he is now if it wasn't for that.

Shrugging Atlas: spongeboob: He is upset because some people don't pay income taxes, I think his point is if these free loaders paid their share he would have more money in his pocket.

Of course we don't even know if HE pays farking taxes every year, so maybe this is all just a complex exercise in self-loathing.


I think the 'he' in the first referred to 'o5iiahwahwahwah'. We have, at least by his statement, that he does pay federal income tax.

As for Romney, we know where he stands. Again, under Romney's proposed tax structure, he'd go from paying ~15% (at least in the year we have part of a filed return for) to, within rounding error, ZERO.

It's not that Romney hates the non-tax-payers that much. It's that he really, really wants to get in on it.

Sergeant Grumbles: It's the millionaires and billionaires that are skipping out on the bill. The poor aren't taxed because they have no money to tax. You can become poor if you want. You can leave it you want. What you can't do is get blood from a stone, or money from someone without it.


Without millionaires and billionaires, we wouldn't even have medicare or medicaid so thank them. As far as closing loopholes and simplifying the tax code, i am all for it.

kapaso: Every law or program that has ever been passed or even written was in reaction to a problem


In the case of SS, it was a law passed by government in response to a problem created by government and exacerbated by government. Those who tried to hedge against it had their money confiscated and savings destroyed many had no choice to but to get on SS.

And when you get downright stupid control on the federal level, you should at least be able to say your state as functioning roads and you can go to your local PTA and find out what the heck is going on.

Humans suck. Some can be corrupt or nefarious and there's no insulator to keep them out of government. I'd rather they be close then far away. A community can kick out its county executive a lot easier than it can get together and push back from the feds

I'd say with few exceptions there hasn't been more than a few spans greater than a week or two since the GOP Primary wraped up where I haven't said, "I just can't farking believe (the latest comment/incident) by Romney."

It's to the point I'm so worn out by the man it takes something completely off the rails like this or his remarks after (during!) the embassy attacks to get me into a thread about this jagoff. If I don't pace myself I'll be incapable of following the election through to the conclusion. The problem is even with those standards he's STILL demanding too much of my time. I may literally have to restrict myself to commenting on actions by Romney where he personally sets someone on fire.

Maybe that's his strategy. Just wear us all the fark out to the point we tune out and actually miss election day.

Nabb1: Providing for those who cannot provide for themselves is charity, and there's nothing wrong with helping people. But no one has a right to demand the government provide them anything.


Sure we do. As a democracy, we are the government. If we collectively decide that the government should hand out balloons every Wednesday then that is what we have decided the government's purpose is. It's the way Democracy works. I don't care what the first government looked like 235 some years ago. Since then we, as a people, have decided that government should have the role of holding out a safety net for the less fortunate among us. And frankly I think that Jefferson and Monroe and Hamilton would all be happy to see that the people's right to determine the form and shape of their government still exists, rather than bemoan the role that government plays in our lives.

You can't blame SS on millionaires and billionaires. Contribution is capped at around $100,000, and benefits are correlated to contribution.

2012-09-18 12:35:58 AM  

o5iiawah: mainstreet62: You're keeping closer to 75% of your paycheck, probably more. Don't be obtuse.

Social security takes 15% right off the top, so I'm not quite sure where 75 comes in.

between contributions to SS, medicare, federal income, state income and the pittance levied by my county, I'm hovering around 40. This is of course before the pre-tax income that I try to invest which sees gains eaten at 15%. Changes to the healthcare law will kibosh my annual increase which of course doesn't offset normal inflation and cost of living adjustments as well. If I'm paying more for basic services thanks to government, this is indirect taxation. Gas went up $.20 in my neighborhood this week which I'm sure had nothing to do with another round of QE. That is taxation.

Of course, this is before I even buy anything.

I get it. We need taxes. I'm happy to pay them, I'm just curious as to how much is fair, how much I should be paying and what more I should be doing for other people?


How are you paying 15% to SS when the SS tax rate is currently 4.2%? Even the self-employed payroll tax rate including SS and medicare is only 13.3%.

Not including pretax 401(k) contributions, my total withholding including payroll and income tax is about 21%, and that's with a base pay of a little over 80k a year, with only 2 allowances as a single filer with no dependents. I live in Texas, so I don't have a state income tax, but you say you're in PA, with a state income tax around 3%. That would only put me up to around 25% being withheld from my paycheck.

I'd have to make somewhere in the neighborhood of 500k a year to even get close to a 40% withholding, and that doesn't even take into account that the SS withholding maxes out at about 110k. If you're married, have kids, or have a mortgage, your total rate would be much lower.

Now why is he standing in front of the California flag in those presser shots? I thought California was for losers. Granted, it's filled with only 10% of the U.S. population, so hardly worth mentioning as unmentionably loserish by these newly established standards.
 
2012-09-18 12:38:12 AM  

o5iiawah: themeaningoflifeisnot: No shiat, Sherlock. But it does inform us as to the intent of our Founders. Read any history of their early struggles in trying to come up with a workable central government plan and you'll see that they never envisioned simply an eat what you kill society.

to be blessed with liberty is to be absent of coercion. The founders envisioned a society where people could prosper as they wanted, practice religion as they wanted and in the aggregate, everyone would be better off. The unfortunate would be better off in a free society versus a control society as would the worker or the farmer.

If you can cite me a federalist paper or document which alleges that our founders intended for a central government whose primary responsibility was provision and security not from invasion or injustice but from want, I'd be happy to answer it.

Ours is a society founded on liberty. That includes stuff you like and some stuff you might not like. Still, i challenge people on the narrative that without a central authority, society would collapse and people would starve. There's plenty of examples in our history of the generosity of one group to another as the reason for a community's survival - not the existence of a state or federal program that kept someone from starving.

You're pushing a narrative that doesn't exist.


I'm pushing a narrative that doesn't exist? And you're the one who thinks that the Founders really worried about making sure people could practice any religion they wished. Seriously?

And your challenge to people to show you how society would collapse and people would starve without a central authority is simply an argument that your belief that it wouldn't happen that way is true just because it can't be proven false. I might as well ask you for an example of a modern instance of a first world country abandoning all social safety nets for tens of millions of poor, sick, and disabled and having all those millions sufficiently cared for by the charity of others. A betting man would put all his money every time on charity not being remotely close to being able to assume that burden.

So what of all the other societies and thier seniors then?

If what you are saying is true then elderly living in poverty should be rare, as social safety nets are fairly new. How do the elderly fair when left to their own devices in other countries or how did they do here well before FDR came along?

I often wonder if the republican disdain for anyone getting anything for free (in their minds, mostly not true) extends to every area of their lives. I imagine a scenario like this.

"I just got a new 60" 3D LED Tv. It cost me 4000 bucks, but it's pretty awesome. What do you have at home?"

"An old 15" CRT that I pulled out of the trash, it does the job, but I really would like to get something nicer, but I can't afford it."

"WHAT? THAT"S UNFAIR! WHY DID I HAVE TO BUY MY TV AND YOU DIDN'T!!!???!?!?!"

2012-09-18 12:47:24 AM  
so Mittens didn't issue an apology or a nopology and that's no surprise because that's just not how he rolls. What is interesting is that he has no problem flopping on just about anything or pandering to just about any group (not in his 47%) but he steadfastly refuses to apologize for anything. And he obviously views this as a badge of strength.

I'm guessing the spin tomorrow will be a select group of GOP will come out defending Romney's statements in the video, or at least attempting to clarify what they think he meant to say.

This was a brilliant piece of trolling, since the campaign's big news today was how they were doing a drastic shift in strategy. Sorry Mitt, you don't even get a few hours of that narrative... you're back on the defensive buddy.

Obama may just be a jedi.
 
2012-09-18 12:49:48 AM  
So let me get this straight: he goes from trying to reach out to the Hispanic population because he knows he can't win without them and the GOP has pissed them away. Then he goes on some mad tirade about '47%' of Americans that simply aren't worth shiat because of policies that benefited him. And he's still hiding his tax returns?

Mitt Romney may be the greatest Republican contender ever. Not only did he just piss off his base for no real gain, he has singlehandedly brought back both the tax return question (speaking of welfare queens) and class warfare into public consciousness. He's basically daring people to vote against him out of some misguided notion that he has a lock on the election. It's not even hubris, it's utter stupidity. He's not just going to lose the election, he's not just going to sink the Republicans either. He's going to singlehandedly become the poster child of why holding the rich up to some kind of gold standard is the stupidest thing you can do.

And the Republicans know it. They know the party is over, and has been ever since 2007 when people just wanted Dubya gone and out of power. They've been trying to find new angles to plump their nest egg or fall into high paying positions where they don't have to do much. There's no defense in the modern-day GOP to counter class warfare. Once the guilt and stigma is gone, the Republicans are where they are now: petty little assholes stealing pennies to throw in the bank. And the backlash hasn't even begun yet.

No wonder why the Democrats wanted him as a candidate. He's not as insanely retarded as the rest of the pack were, but Romney is the ramp to the new Southern Strategy. And the Republicans have absolutely no recourse.

Thing is, he didn't piss off his base though. He probably got them more excited to vote for him. There's this nebulous conservative ideology that there are hordes of minorities suckling the teat of big government at the expense of white taxpayers. Even if the white taxpayer in question doesn't pay federal income tax and is reliant on entitlement programs to survive. Conservative voters will see Romney's statements, nod their heads at a big government punishing the white man, then go cash their Social Security check without batting an eye. The guy on unemployment down at the bar isn't "one of those people" either. He's got circumstances that make it all right for him, but not for anyone else.

The overriding philosophy that drives conservative voters is "I got mine, so fark you." Logic and consistency don't play any part.

But he was born in Mexico ... and, uh, had he been born of, uh, Mexican parents, I'd have a better shot at winning this," Romney said. "But he was unfortunately born to Americans living in Mexico. ... I mean I say that jokingly, but it would be helpful to be Latino."


This on the same day he tries to bring Hispanic voters back to the Republican fold.

Guess what? i do but in a free society, it is none of your farking business what I do with my time or my money. See how this works?



Bullshiat. Nobody as selfish as you and as contemptuous of those unable to manage on their own gives to charity. You consistently demean and deride anyone who isn't as rich, privileged and special as you, and you never hesitate to tell us how you bootstrapped yourself so everyone who doesn't isn't as worthy as you. The only way you and your ilk "give to charity" is as ostentatiously as possible, once a year, probably at Christmas so you can tell yourself what a good person you're being. You hate poor people for being poor, it's obvious in your adamant refusal to acknowledge that sometimes people need some help and your parroting of the same tired talking points that oh so many people are just living large on the government tit.

If you'd ever spent five minutes in a soup kitchen or food bank, you'd never make such an asinine statement, which is how I know you talk a good talk and have no balls for walking the walk. Your god had a word for you: hypocrite.

If the comments on the ABC News article are any indication (and I realize they probably aren't), the Repubs will refuse to walk this one back, but will double down on it instead.

\evidently ABC = "All Barack Channel"

It's interesting how few of the Romney derpers showed up in this thread to defend his honor. Normally criticism of the All High Leader brings the conservabots out in force. I guess this latest idiocy of Romney's is too much for even them to take.

He looks tired.

Beating up on the poor and the sick and the elderly is exhausting work.


You know...that gives me an idea. Everybody knows about bum fights. I think we should have bum vs. rich entitled rich boy fights. I would pay to see it.

Confabulat: It's still 2 months to the election almost. A lot can happen between now and then. American's can't remember past last Tuesday.


Pretty sure most Americans remember what happened last Tuesday.

The explanation from Romney's camp right now is he was speaking "off the cuff". I am not sure how that is a defense, though.
