Not really insta-green worthy, is it?
Just another "Damn him for saying it outloud" Akin-like moment.

If by "begins" you mean the ninth or tenth Republican criticizing Romney.
 
2012-09-20 04:51:53 AM
The money knows there's no way he can win and he's dragging down the base turnout with him.

Bit'O'Gristle: Too many republican gaffs so far. I'm calling it over.


Seconded. Right now the remaining Republicans who haven't made assess of themselves are all eyeing the 2016 elections. They've written off the Mitt for shooting his mouth off like he was Biden. The critical difference, of course, is when Biden shoots his mouth off, you tend to agree with him.
 
2012-09-20 05:18:53 AM
Maybe this will kill the misleading and stupid "47%" talking point forever and ever.

It's never wise to relax, especially when fact checking is just the latest liberal conspiracy to these people.
The election can still be bought yet.

Hear that? That's the sound of the GOP imploding ....

The Democratic party doesn't need to attack the Republican party, it ends up attacking itself. Just like 2008 really ...
 
2012-09-20 05:27:35 AM
Best way I can sum this up is with a quote from a meme I saw yesterday:

"So you telling me the party of "no taxes" is upset that too many people aren't paying taxes?"

Call this one done for the Pubs. Better luck in 4 years, y'all.
 
2012-09-20 05:36:47 AM
I would not call it over. I was chatting with a buddy the other day and no matter what you bring up about Romney, he will say, "We have to get Obama out of there before he finishes destroying the country." If you ask him what he's talking about, he cites "socialism". If you accuse him of being racist, he calls you a racist. It's a no win and there are lots of people like him out there and they vote. If the democrats call this a wash, they won't show up at the polls. The GOP hardliners always show to vote.
 
2012-09-20 05:37:15 AM
Game, set, match. You can still make 20-30% return on a 2-month investment on Obama for president if you can gamble online. Best return you'll see on a sure thing

Cleatus who is between jobs and gets SNAP and Medicaid thinks Romney is right because he is a hard worker and not a lazy welfare cheat. People see the best in themselves and the worst in others so they will just assume Mitt is with them against the cheats
 
2012-09-20 05:52:57 AM
On NPR the other day, they quoted republican politicians saying "we just want to put bags over our heads and hide" talking about the Romney gaffs. The moderate cons are running away from him like rats from a sinking ship, and only the die hard right are still beating their drums. The only laughable thing i see on this is when they make such a mistake, the funny spins they try to put on it are quite amusing.
 
2012-09-20 05:56:32 AM
Romney said at a private fundraiser in May that the 47 percent of Americans who don't pay income taxes are "dependent on the government" and "believe they are victims" and that his "job is not to worry about those people. I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."

/Ya, you don't really want to be president do you? So the 47 percent you just called lazy parasites won't vote for you, and the other 53 percent think you're a elitist tool. Nice job, better luck next time.
 
2012-09-20 05:59:48 AM
No this is a trick to get the Democrats completely complacent and start celebrating early. Then their secret awesome plan goes into effect.

You sound...concerned.
 
2012-09-20 06:05:22 AM
Let's keep focusing on the fact that Romney might have been right but didn't paint a complete picture from some talk he gave VS Obama actually doing things that make his administration opaque, circumvents the spirit of the Bill of Rights and US Constitution, spent billions on subsidies for companies that fail within 1 year of operation (how the hell do some of these companies lose half a billion within a year), allow wall street thieves who illegally raided customer accounts and lost their money to walk free and continue on (Corazine), while going after people who expose US war crimes (Assange)
 
2012-09-20 06:06:24 AM
Linda McMahon came out against Mitt as well. Too bad she'd been making a similar claim until fairly recently.

Are you trying to say Romney is going to fix all these things that concern you so? Really? Then why are you voting for him?

Romney was wrong to write off 47%. But there's some evidence that, no matter who you are, no matter what you believe, you'll always have a small but significant portion of the population you can never see eye-to-eye with.

It's around 21%

On top of that, Romney is damaging a lot of Senate campaigns. Heller is leading in a tight race, but Scott Brown might be in trouble in MA.

Missouri is Akin's own fault, of course.

FTFA: "I have a very different view of the world and as a United States senator I think I represent everybody. And every vote is important. Every vote is important in this race. I don't write off anything."

Oh, I see what this is about. It was so sneaky I almost didn't realize it was about vote-grubbing.

Not my election, and I am usually loathe to comment in someone else's elections, but please pay attention to this post.

We had a slam dunk candidate for our riding who was beat by a candidate who didn't campaign, didn't go door to door, didn't do anything. Even hardline Conservatives said; "Who the hell is she?"

They quietly made sure all of their supporters made it to the polls and didn't stir any issues to make the Liberal supporters wake up, and they won.

Fortunate for us all it means is a useless, deer in the headlights, Twinkie, for a few years. If you guys get this wrong, so the world turns.

"One of the responsibilities of the federal government is a safety net."

He's one of a lot of people who need to reassess. Because it sounds like the Republican party has left him behind. He sounds like a Democrat.
 
2012-09-20 07:50:37 AM
Obama is getting blamed for the failure of his "Muslim outreach" policy, so the media rips the lid off the Republican side of the political sausage factory. If things get any worse for Obama, the media will probably try to have Romney thrown in jail.

/there's a difference between campaigning for President and actually working as President
//seems Obama neither knows nor cares about this fact, which explains all the crap hitting the fan over the last four years

This is sadly true. If you ask them what Romney brings to the table that is better than Obama, the answer is "not Obama". If you point out all the truly disgraceful things Romney has done, they respond with "not Obama". It's really scary that people like them are allowed to vote.

What is this I don't even

By "Muslim outreach" do you mean killing a lot of terrorists?

Alphakronik: "So you telling me the party of "no taxes" is upset that too many people aren't paying taxes?"


Too many poor people aren't paying taxes, and too many rich people are... They're not even trying to hide their avarice anymore... It would be comical if they were villians in a movie, but in real life it's just sad and scary... The scariest part is how many poor people they dupe into going along with them! Romney may have written off and insulted that 47%, but I would bet a large number of them will actually vote for him anyway... Why? I have no idea... The same way I don't understand how such people as "gay Republicans" or "female Republicans" can still exist in this day and age... Why would anyone vote for people that come right out and admit they hate you and want to oppress and/or destroy you?

God-is-a-Taco: "Just another "Damn him for saying it outloud" Akin-like moment."

Yeah, no.
The bottom of the ticket often grumbles in private about the top of the ticket not helping.
But this is no off-the-cuff remark. This was a conscious decision to flip off the party and get the fark away from the top of the ticket, damn the intraparty consequences.
I'd only say it's not insta-green-worthy because he's hardly the first person to do it and not even the first Senator.

It's becoming obvious Republicans don't want this election either. Since they know it's a very unpopular move to start another war in the next 4 years, since they know they can't fix an economy, and as long as they hold enough seats to keep Obamacare and other big changes back, they'll be better off sitting back and pointing fingers for the next 4 years.

You do realize that your vote for President doesn't count; it's the college electorate that decides who becomes President? So whatever your buddy is saying doesn't matter, it doesn't matter who supports who unless you're picked by your senator or congressman to cast a vote for the presidential election.
