Omahawg: I hope some low-level romney social media consultant flunky monkey has to read these threads and then write a report, crying.


The Romney camp are suffering from major fatigue right now. They haven't even recovered from the Libya fiasco and now this. Many of his supporters are saying that he "hit a bump", "was inarticulate" and "misspoke". I would expect the rats to start jumping of the ship today.

Funk Brothers: spongeboob: Are you saying that Romney is going to be involved with our enemies to ensure that he wins election Link

So what? I would be happy if Romney wins and Obama gets sent back to teach at UChicago. Iran helped us in 1980 and will help us again in 2012.

Besides look at this polling data from September 13th. Romney would win by a landside.


FTFA:

The map above is an alternative analysis of the electoral vote standing for this presidential race done for QstarNews.com by the author of this article. The methodology for this particular map is quite simple. For each state, the polling data listed for that state at Real Clear Politics is viewed, and when obviously skewed media polls are removed, the remaining credible polls are averaged. If that average shows Obama at 50.1 percent or better, that state is shaded blue for Obama. Any result below that for Obama, and the state is shaded red for Romney. This reflects just about all the undecided vote going to Romney by the time voters cast their ballots in the actual election.

Sounds legit.

Aarontology: For the record though, I completely support Federal involvement in recovery from hurricanes and oil spills, and I think it's appalling how quickly people forget about the Gulf.


We've still got farking BP oil washing up on the beaches in South Texas, after Isaac hit and stirred that shiat up.

Nabb1: If you can provide yourself with the necessities in life, you have no right to demand others do so for you.


I think you have every right to demand it. First amendment style. The government is under no such obligation to provide much of anything except the spending and appropriations agreed to in the last congress. So until such a time as congress decides to actually... you know... cut off these "47%" leachers...

Yes. You do have a right to demand that the programs your taxes pay for are available to you when you need them. Because we voted for people to represent us, and a while ago they decided this was smart. And we have yet to vote for people to change this. Because for all our bravado about bootstraps, everyone knows deep down that they're a broken leg and a car accident away from losing their farking house.

At the other end, you have every right to demand that the government stop fulfilling these obligations. However, that's a little more fruitless, really. I suggest you vote for people who will *snirk*, cut off -pffft- entitlements. See how that works out for you. Watch as people pander mercilessly to your misguided sense of social justice and then proceed to do what everyone before them does. Punt. And biatch about how it's the democrats' fault.

Just had an interesting convo with one of my clients this morning. He's a retired COO, and a died-in-the-wool conservative/life-long Republican.

His comment?

"Romney just stepped on his crank with golf-shoes...ya know what? If Clinton could run again I'd vote for him in a heartbeat!"

vegasj: ferretman: And whose fault is that? It's Congresses and the Presidents. President Obama has not even mentioned these multi-million/billion corporations. Just wants to raise taxes on those making $150,000.00+ (combined). Real small businesses that do not pay minimum wage but actual salaries will be effected. A company needs to make ~$100K per employee that makes ~$50K + benefits. Increasing their taxes do not allow these small business grow.

Dude, shhhhh... don't hit Obama-lovers with facts, facts scare them into name calling and stuff.


It figures that you would fellate the weasel.

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 think Obama has a chance to take Texas.


Nope...we're still Red State retarded.

Im not convinced that Rmoney actually wants to be president. I think he might be trying to throw the match.

So telling the truth is now "scathing remarks", subby?

This is yet another libby manufactured "controversy" that won't change a single vote.

Then he should be voting Obama.

Did you mention how closely Obama and Clinton's policy positions align? And with Obama you don't have to deal with embarrassing bimbo eruptions.

That the 47% not paying income tax are voting for Obama is a complete provable lie. Proven dozens of times in this thread alone.

Sabyen91: Harry Ovaries: 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.

SS AND Medicare max out at 7.65%, from your paycheck. Less if you're over $110K. So, as I had to explain to someone else last week:

If you're paying that much per check, I suggest you look into your W4's as withholding too much (that you, you know, get back in the spring as a REFUND check) here: http://www.irs.gov/Individuals/IRS-Withholding-Calculator (I hew as close as possible to actual amount due since I don't believe in refunds as forced, non-interest *savings*). Personally, being OK enough above the *median* income, my last actual fed rate on gross after standard deduction and tax floor (no mortgage for me to deduct, no child under 17 any more for a credit, etc. . . basically, a gold ol' plain vanilla 1040A / EZ if childless) for me and a teenager was just microscopically short of 10%. Then there's the FICA for SS and Medicare -- which is only 7.65% at MAX (6.2 and 1.45 respectively) that reduces to 4.2 and 1.45 somewhere below $100K and eliminates SS altogether at $110K annual gross -- which is what ACTUALLY supports those programs. Whatever else you're paying (to state and local taxes also) does not support those programs. And since the current top fed rate is only 35%, even w/ FICA it's *impossible* to pay the feds 40%. And btw, anything you're paying for your share of health insurance or to a 401K (etc.) doesn't count as *tax* for what you *keep* from your check . . . just in case that's part of what you're counting toward the final net total.

Jebus you're obnoxious and willfully obtuse.

I am sure he is talking about the 15% that you and your employer pay but it seems weird to include the employer contribution.


Well his employer would give it to him if it didn't have to go for taxes, right?

Bucky Katt: A rare candid statement from Romney. He truly despises most Americans. A smug, arrogant elitist.


This is one of the most fascinating things about the republican party... they spent the bulk of their 2008 campaign trying to convince america that a minority male from Chicago from a broken home, raised by his grandparents and earning his way through college and law school on scholarships is some sort of arugula and fancy mustard eating out of touch elitist... and then purposely go out and nominate someone who is an actual real life textbook 100% white guy silver spoon millionaire out of touch elitist without batting an eye.

WTF?

quatchi: tony41454: Yeah, it's not like Obama's "they bitterly cling to their guns and religion" remark.

You sound bitter... and clingy.


Well he does usually advocate for Obama's assassination, so yeah, I reckon he is.
 
2012-09-18 02:05:20 PM

cloud_van_dame: Perhaps he is troubled by the 25% of American children who are on food stamps. Many of whom have parents with jobs that don't pay enough to feed them properly.

Maybe he also has a problem with school lunch programs?


Speaking of... like clofwhoville said over at slate:

"Yes, perhaps he was begging - but shouldn't voters be troubled by the fairy tale that the rich and powerful find so compelling? And was it necessary - even for this audience - to haughtily describe Obama voters as people who fail to take responsibility for their own lives? Couldn't he have described them as poor, naive, souls tragically duped by the duplicitous Obama?

I don't think anyone is all that shocked that Romney told donors what they wanted to hear; I think they're shocked at the ugly words he used to demean voters he believes he cannot persuade. "


so... why do the ultra-rich scoff at school lunches, and scoff at making sure that those who serve our country with their bodies and souls have an education and health care waiting for them, and scoff at making sure nana and poppa have a little guaranteed survival after retirement? what was the point of the fantasy Rmoney was weaving for those in attendance? why was Rmoney so sure that cavalierly writing off half of the United States (and thus, indirectly, 99.99 percent of the world which only wishes to make as much as someone in the States, as someone else pointed out) was the proper way to massage money out of these nitwits' dicks?

how do they lose?

That you think his entire point was solely about income tax, then you missed the point.

That is my answer. You have no business telling me what I can and can't do with my body just as I have no business telling you what you can and can't do with yours. What seems to be so difficult with the concept?

They were never taboo, it's just that Obama is an inarticulate moron without one.

Which, of course, isn't remotely true, and has nothing to do with anything, but there you have it.
