Because some people actually pay attention to what's going on with the candidates. These people see what a bumbling clown Romney is and realize how catastrophic he would be for the well-being of this country.

Because Mitt Romney is a sociopathic, magic underwear-wearing oligarch with open contempt for anyone whose money doesn't need a passport?
 
2012-09-18 08:22:29 AM
Because he's actually a decent POTUS and Mitt Romney would obviously be a disaster?

You're talking about the same people who wanted the government out of the Medicare back in 2009. Cognitive dissonance is a way of life for them.
 
2012-09-18 08:23:15 AM
Because the Republicans are pandering to their fringe so hard they're transforming their own moderates into quasi-liberals?

No, no, most of them would vote for a Priest raping a small child while consuming human flesh, so long as he was against abortion, gays and pro-guns.

That's because the right-wing wants to protect the right of religious organizations to accomplish their spiritual and societal goals.

can someone please provide the tl;dr version of the article?
 
2012-09-18 08:26:01 AM
Could it be that the Republican Party nominated a complete fool and dumbass to run for President? As long as Mittens & the Republican Party continue to shoot themselves in the foot, Obama can just sit back and watch the show.
 
2012-09-18 08:28:35 AM
All aboard the Romney fail boat. I know its going to go for Obama because the sheeple from the Other Universe of Truth who post news story comments in my local paper are going dog whislte bat shiat crazy.

Obama isn't perfect. And the Democrats engage in some degree of truth stretching and spin (all politicians do) but thankfully the majority of the country isn't dumb enough to listen to simple lies and believe them. That's the republicans best strategy right now. They have NOTHING going for them.

Look, when your team is getting beaten 20-2 in the 8th inning,you start thinking about the next game. You don't put your best pitcher in. You put in a guy willing to go out there and try, even though he's just going to get lit up. That's Romney. They should change the bumper stickers from "I'm with Mitt" to "Romney from Bain, and Pray for Rain."
 
2012-09-18 08:30:48 AM
Because reliable (R) voters have noticed the influx of batshiat crazy (R) politicians who seem to think that being educated, a woman or BOTH *gasp* makes you some sort of diseased outcast who must be cleansed from the planet.

That's the kind of crazy that gets out to the polls and re-elects George W. Bush, a man who invaded 2 countries under false pretenses, cut taxes in a time of war (first time for that), expanded government authority via the Patriot Act and studiously failed to put two coherent sentences together on a regular basis.

In short, no reason to feel comfortable with the next election if you are an Obama supporter

FTFA: "We lost Bubba a long time ago; he's done," said Democrat James Carville of working-class white males.

Carville can be annoying, but I think I just fell in love with him because of this line.

Because Mitt has displayed to the American people through is decisions he isn't even qualified to be president of a book club, much less the United States.

Romney is a horrible candidate. He doesn't know what he believes from one day to the next and frequently misstates it.

On the other hand. If we can re-elect Bush, whose opponent was running an "Anybody But Bush" strategy - then the same strategy isn't going to work on someone much less reviled.

oryx: Romney is a horrible candidate. He doesn't know what he believes from one day to the next and frequently misstates it.


He believes in an America where millions of Americans believe in an America that's the America millions of Americans believe in. That's the America he loves
 
2012-09-18 08:40:51 AM
Because he's not half as bad a president as the GOP wishes he was.
 
2012-09-18 08:41:58 AM
Considering how poorly run the Romney campaign is these days, a more appropriate headline would be "Why Romney is losing". Or better yet, "How to throw a presidential election". Sometimes I wonder if Romney bet all his money against himself on Intrade and is deliberately sinking the ship for profits. God knows the man sure loves money.
 
2012-09-18 08:42:00 AM
Because Bill Clinton came out and explained stuff to the country.

//Made Romney's chances almost ZEE-ROW

Well.... 47% percent of it at least.

Because he's a ni-BONG. Sadly, many Prosperity Gospel thumpers actually believe this (and they always follow or preface it by saying that it is not a racist statement).

Which is batshiat crazy, because the societal goals for many folk include Armageddon.

-1 for your troll mode. I could tell you tried hard, but you clearly lack the crazy. And no 0bummer use.

Romney just seems like some country club douchebag with his sweater tied around his shoulders, wearing matching shoes and belt, watching his wife ride around on her million dollar horsey.

Say what you want about Obama, he and his family are likeable. Good backstory, cute kids, a cool wife, and Obama seems like a real person. ("Hell, I've had enough of this for a while, tell the Secret Service I'm going down the street to the Federal Gym to play some basketball and relax for a bit.")

I mean, when you think of Mitt and Ann Romney as the First Family, do you really see them identifying with the American public? The Obamas do.

/"sigh, yeah, my wife is planting all this crap in the backyard so we can eat fresh food all the time... yeah, hey whatcha gonna do, huh? Pass me another of those kickin' homebrews, Biden."
 
2012-09-18 08:52:17 AM
I'm good with the demographic argument. The angry, old, white men are dying off and that's the only group where the Republicans have a majority.

Two reasons:

First, Obama really isn't that bad a president. He's attempted to make a positive difference in the face of an astounding level of partisian bickering. Deficit spending is up, true, but it's better than repeating endless tax cuts which do noting to motivate the economy and add just as much (if not more) deficit. he attempted to address the mess that is health care. He ended the Iraq war, is working towards ending the quagmire in Afghanistan, and has stepped up when needed as Commander in Chief. Killing Osama bin Laden is the most obvious example, but he also took action against Somali pirates, and avoided getting us bogged down in the Arab Spring. Is he perfect? No. But things are headed in a better direction than they were four years ago.

Second, there's simply no viable alternative. Romney has been thick with veiled racism and rhetoric, but thin on any plans other than to hand the keys of the country over to the plutocracy. The fact he's polling within striking distance at all is astounding.

Except that Romney was the reasonable, articulate, centrist Republican presidential candidate.

fta Blunt, who thought Ann Romney's speech was the most important of the convention because it put a warm face on the candidate, said Boston's ability "to round [Romney] out as a person is important. We'll see if they do some more of that."

Romney's contempt for our embassy personnel and 47% of America has done a fine job of rounding him out

Considering the situation Obama isn't even doing that bad of a job with the economy and foreign policy, but Romney is just beating himself, the guy can't go 2 days without some idiotic statement offending some group of voters he would need for a win. I don't know how much of that shiat actually trickles down to the less informed voter but I'd think some of it must...
