Politicandy: I used to think he was the Republican John Kerry, but apparently his situation is even worse.
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.
MFL: GallupRassmussenYet 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.
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.
Citrate1007: Cletus C.: And yet polling shows the popular vote is almost a dead heat.What does that say about the incumbent?Thank you Fox News for Keeping Us Infromed/would expect no less from you Cletus//tell me again about the silent majority
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%.
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.
Cletus C.: And yet polling shows the popular vote is almost a dead heat.What does that say about the incumbent?
Lando Lincoln: If he was a white Democrat, they wouldn't mind him nearly as much.
Opiate of the Lasses: /and I wouldn't piss on Mitt if he were on fire
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?
Mugato: I don't think anyone is voting for Romney. They're all voting against Obama. So Romney could be replaced by an inanimate carbon rod and probably get a bump.
