It struck me earlier this morning that Romney has probably never had a real job interview in his life.

I think at that level, when your father is governor and your family friends are all on the Board of Directors, when you're first out of school, a friendly VP quietly takes you out to lunch and gently asks you some questions about where you want your career to go. You don't have to sweat in front of a panel of total strangers and sell yourself with everything you've got. Of course he doesn't know how to convince voters that he's the man for the job - he has literally less experience doing that than your average student.

I didn't actively hate W as a person. I hated his administration, but people always said he was a good guy to meet in person. I didn't hate McCain, I was disappointed in where he went in order to get the nomination, but I still had respect for what he's done in life. I actively do not like Mitt Romney. He has no core convictions, feels entitled to the presidency, and he seems to lack empathy for anyone that isn't rich, white, and straight. He lost any shred of respect I may have had for him as a person when he called half of the country losers that he doesn't care about. What kind of asshole does that, especially when running for president?

fark off, Romney. I'm tired of hearing your name.

John Kerry is an obscenely rich person just like Mitt Romney, but Kerry paid his dues. He served our country in the military (fighting in a war that Romney protested FOR rather than against, then avoided completely), then he went into public office. He is the Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which doesn't sound like an easy position to come by.

They have similarities, but it's mostly centered on their money/upbringing. Everything beyond that, and they couldn't be more different. I'd rather meet John Kerry than Mitt Romney. I'd shake Kerry's hand and apologize to him for the disgraceful way his military service was denigrated in 2004. If I met Mitt Romney, I'd be tempted to throw a cup of water in his face to see if his circuits blow and start shorting out.

Aarontology: Politicandy: I used to think he was the Republican John Kerry, but apparently his situation is even worse.

Yeah. People didn't take Kerry seriously, but he wasn't actively disliked.


He was disliked as much as any out of touch rich arsehole. If you have never worried about how you are going to pay the rent or never had to consider what you could actually afford when buying a car you are out of touch with the average Joe. Period. You did not get that rich by just working hard and playing buy the rules. A lot of people resent that and dislike them for it. Granted Kerry married most of his money but he is a senator and they all game the system in ways that would most likely have you or I put in prison.

The difference is Rmoney is pure evil and has willfully destroyed functioning businesses and harmed the communities that depend on them in the name of profit. Kerry hasn't reached that level of evil but I still dislike him.

The thing, for me, about Romney can be summed up by two Romney bathroom stories. When he was living in Paris, he talked about ling in what was practically a hut. He said he mostly stayed in places that "often had no working toilet, and certainly no baths or showers." In reality, he stayed in a place that has been described as a palace. It certainly had working plumbing, and, if Mitt did not have a private bath, he had to, at most, share with one other person. This, to Mitt, is hardship. You know, for Mitt.

But for others? Mitt is perfectly good with 120 girls in a work-camp sharing one bathroom, To Mitt, that's a fine, fine thing. You know, for others.

MFL: Gallup
Rassmussen

Yet after it was declared the "worst week of any presidential candidate in history", Mitt Romney just erased Obama's (fake) post convention "bounce".

The problem with liberals isn't that they are ignorant, they just know so much that isn't so.


Well, handpicking a couple of polls and ignoring the rest so that you can support a conclusion makes you ignorant. It also makes you intellectually dishonest, or probably safe to say, a liar. Being derogatory toward others for supposedly exhibiting the same traits that you are exhibiting makes you a hypocrite. So, Mr. lying, ignorant, hypocrite, a couple of links:

SevenizGud: KJUW89: This may be true, but 95% of that 47% are from Red states sucking up government resources and holding up misspelled "Vote Rmoney" signs.

I'm for stopping the rewarding of people for being parasitic bums. If that means red states get disproportionately larger relative cuts in "reward the parasite" payments, then so be it.


Maybe if you could stop talking in inflammatory rhetoric, people might not think you are a dimwitted jaggoff.

What does that say about the incumbent?

Thank you Fox News for Keeping Us Infromed

//tell me again about the silent majority


I will. The new silent majority in this country are not Tea Tards or Cletuc C's. They are sane people who don't carry misspelled signs and don't flock to a farking garbage food chicken joint to hate on gays. They hear all this stuff and get turned off by it. They notice things streaming from the right and realize that the loudest idiots in the party are spouting things they do not agree with. They're the ones who will decide the vote, not the screaming idiots who have done so much damage to the political culture of this country since 2010.

SevenizGud: I just watched (part of) the video as part of the Colbert Report, and his coverage of it, and I can really only say this.

It's true. About 47% of Americans are parasites. There is no elegant way to say that. It's still true, though.

Mitt should have stated that he didn't care about trying to convert them to vote for him because it can't be done, rather than stating it in a way that implies he doesn't care about them at all, period (even if that is the actual case).

And I think that's the error. I really don't give a squirt about you 47% losers either. And yet I still think I care more about you than Mitt does. Maybe our president should care about all the citizens. I dunno. But I fear that Mitt will treat the 47% like his dog, and roof-rack a large portion of the American populace, and in my estimation, to the tune of a much larger percentage than just 47%.


So, the large portion of that 47% that are the elderly using their SS and Medicare are parasites? The 47% who are young, still in school, and not working are parasites? The 47% who are truly disabled and unable to work are parasites?

If you think the 47% are all just Joe Bubba and Laquisha, sitting around on their asses all day and collect government checks, then you are just an asshole.

Car_Ramrod: Lando Lincoln: He could spend every remaining day of his life on a super luxurious vacation and still have plenty of money left over. And he's going to really fume over not being President?

Then why has he been running for president for so many years? If he doesn't care so much about winning that trophy, why has he put in so much time and effort into it? He has been running for office since 1994, with the eventual goal to win Top Executive of America. Someone doesn't devote nearly 2 decades of their life to something they don't care about.



How many other life goals is the guy really going to have at this point?

The Presidency is a prestige item for Romney, and one of the few that he can't (quite) buy outright. That's the challenge, and that may well be the only real attraction of it. It certainly helps explain his tin ear for the process- trying to negotiate from the viewpoint of a buyer of the office, rather than as a seller of himself.

No, for our lurking studio audience, the 47% are not parasites. 61% of them are making very little money (while the CEOs make something like 260 times the grunts), and most of the rest are students and elderly, the last of which has paid into entitlements most of their lives.

So keep lying ace, but no one will smoke your stupid pole here, my friend.

Lando Lincoln: If he was a white Democrat, they wouldn't mind him nearly as much.


I dunno about that; I think they'd very much mind a white Democrat from Chicago being elected president. I read an interesting article on this a few years back; it's not necessarily being a Democrat that's the problem (though it does contribute), it's being a Democrat that's not from the South. If you look at the last 6 Democratic presidents going back to Roosevelt, four out of the six were from the South, and Kennedy chose a Southerner as Vice President. Obama has broken that mold in a major way.

TimonC346: Is there a real reason the GOP hates Obama so much? With the exception of healthcare reform (passed by almost all of the past 4 presidents), what is their beef? His economic strategy is fairly similar to W's, his foreign policy is only viewed as different because he doesn't appear as reckless or as inarticulate as W, and he has barely done anything the GOP hasn't been completely behind in the past.

So what the shiat really gives here?


Black + Democrat.

If he was a black Republican, they'd love the guy.

If he was a white Democrat, they wouldn't mind him nearly as much.

The RNC is really are a bunch of dimwits. Imagine if they had really put their muscle behind Huntsman and used Fox News and the narrative in general to set him up as the presumptive nominee. Imagine where we'd be right now. Republicans are always going to vote for the guy with the "R" after his name so that would still be locked up but you'd legitimately have a horse race with the undecideds and independents.

I'm always teetering back and forth, wondering if republicans are really this stupid or if they're actually just evil and faking the stupidity but on this one, since it will cost them the election I'm going to have to go with irredeemably stupid.

This. The inanimate carbon rod would get 40% of the vote, no questions. Clint Eastwood could host a debate between the rod and an empty chair. It would be the best 60 minutes of television ever.
