Actually he DID stay and answer all their questions, and called Romney a "Farking moron, an utterly pathetic asshole" and other rants for close to two minutes.

Unfortunately, all the cameras and microphones were inadvertently turned off, but resumed filming just as he left the podium and mumbled something about a factory in China.

True, but at this point any counterattack feels like the Battle of the Bulge. I think something huge would have to happen for Obama to suddenly lose support. I don't think even winning the debates will cut it for Romney. The Libya issue could have and should have been his chance to pivot and put Obama on the offensive, but he couldn't even get that right.

It's like watching a Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II and a vintage Ferrari head towards a railroad crossing simultaneously while a Lear jet crashes onto both of them just before the 1:40 from Scranton arrives.

The truth untold is that the real number they despise, ala Rom-nay recent-lay, is even higher...

We are but plebs, plebes, and proles to the GOP, aka Republican Party, and we serve only to lube their wheels, well, surprise, surprise, surprise, you dislodge your own wheels!

This GOP presidential campaign does start to make a lot more sense if you imagine it's a big Monty Python skit.

GOP leadership actively dodging questions about their candidate less than 2 months from the election. Good Lord.

I get the feeling that the Republican leadership is embarrassed not because of the insult to 47% of Americans, but rather because one of their cabal got caught telling the truth as they see it.

No, he's right, there is not one really big flaw,

What there is are several big flaws and more each day but not one really big one.

If the will of the American people meant jack, that would account for something. Some of us remember Election Day of 2000 and 2004. The election-stealing industry has laid low just long enough be wiped clean from the gnat-like collective American attention span and the time is right for a comeback.

A family member is a high ranking associate in the Republican party - I can hardly wait for Thanksgiving lol. It seems that Romney may give me as much as Sarah Palin did to mock him with. They are the gift that keeps on giving anymore...

Excuse any typos because the touchpad does not like my bandaged thumb...damned barb wire.

Senator turtle-man is in my opinion a traitor to the nation for his deliberate (and proudly publicly pre-announced) attempts to monkey-wrnech the US government since inauguration day, just to make things bad enough to make Obama a one-termer. He should DIAF and his cronies with him. There's loyal opposition, then there's farking with the US economy on a macro scale just to sway an election your way. Fark him with a rake. He's more un-American than most terrorists.

Hmmm.

I wonder what the voicemails and email inboxes of Republican legislators' offices must be like these days.

This is toxic for the GOP. Their already-lukewarm presidential candidate is now radioactive, individual legislators are disclaiming his remarks, and the leadership isn't willing to mount more than a weak, token defence before quite literally retreating for safe ground.

I honestly didn't expect a self-inflicted bombshell like this, certainly not after the conventions. His reputation as a liar and chameleon made a lot of people suspicious even before the nomination race began. The short foreign tour was damaging enough. The Libya screwup made him look jumpy and desperate. To have his real opinions about half of the country, along with other spectacularly poor ideas, caught coming out of his own mouth after all of this time, apparently leaked by a Republican, may finish him in the purple states. I wonder if he could even lose a solidly red state or two.
