But after exhausting the few conservative groups on campus, the Romney camp realized there weren't enough sympathetic students to fill the stands on their night - so they told the network and university that if they weren't given an exemption to the students-only rule, they might have to "reschedule."

I cannot wait until this asshole loses, and loses badly. So badly that he never considers running for office again. I wanted McCain to lose. I want Romney to be humiliated.

Chariset: What was this guy like as governor? Was he more humble, or was he just as bad but we never knew about it?


I was in MA a lot during his term. I don't recall him being especially awful, but being governor in most states, you attend ribbon-cuttings and crunch numbers; you usually don't have to negotiate directly with political opposition that is loud and public, and even on the rare cases you do, the results of a misunderstanding are not often catastrophic.

Romney probably should have given a bit more consideration to the possibility of if he won the presidency, how would he deal - simultaneously - with "friendly" nations who are trying to slip in a shiv, "hostile" nations using back-channels to offer or request assistance, a legislature that has 535 competing interests, a judiciary which is actually independent and can slice your man-parts off, and 300 million citizens, a significant majority of which consider you to be a tyrant and/or the earthly spokesman for demons. Oh, and a global economy which has changed a lot more than most of the voting public wants to realize... basically, it ain't a really good position for people who take things personally.

If he loses I think he will be, by default. The GOP has portrayed Obama as the most socialist, America-hating president in history. Losing to THAT would certainly be humiliating.

Ramos then invited the audience to welcome Romney to the stage - but the candidate didn't materialize.

"It was a very awkward moment, believe me," Salinas said.

Apparently, Romney took issue with the anchors beginning the broadcast that way, said Salinas, and he refused to go on stage until they re-taped the introduction. (One Republican present at the taping said Romney "threw a tantrum.")


Are recording devices, even just phones, allowed in this place? If so, I'd expect to see the video of him not coming out to surface very soon. I doubt anyone was backstage recording the "tantrum," but that would be amazing if someone caught what happened on film.

MithrandirBooga: This guy is a grade A sociopath. I seriously don't understand how people can vote for him.


We were just talking about this earlier tonight. A person has to really pretend to like and believe Romney's lies in order to vote for him, and I think it says much more about the person casting that vote than it does the candidate himself.

In other words, you have to have absolutely no moral compass to vote Romney. Around here, we tend to call those people "pieces of shiat."

"Right now, we have 68,000 combat troops in Afghanistan. ... Right now, as we speak, it's well into the middle of the night, heading toward morning. There is some master sergeant sitting in a FOB that I've visited - a forward operating base - with six or seven guys and maybe a woman. Up there, defending a position being shelled all night. Who - because he or she is in a combat zone, risking their lives and too many having given their lives - he is not paying any tax on his salary."

"Does he view himself as a victim?" Vice President Biden asked.

If Mittens is actually throwing tantrums now, I'm starting to think it's an actual possibility that he'll have a meltdown of some kind at a debate on live national television. I know a lot of Farkers are joking that he might drop an n-bomb. He won't do anything that bad, but I'm starting to think he'll lose composure in some noticeable way.

Simple. It's the same reason people watch Fox News. Romney and Fox News both tell their audiences what they want to hear, even when both manage to contradict themselves as little as a few minutes later.

It's not that any of them are gifted salesmen. It's just that their clientele aren't very bright.

But he's gone through a reboot. He's a totally different person than he was a few months ago, so don't bring up anything that happened ever in his life, especially the things that have happened while on the campaign trail. For instance, he's now orange when once he wasn't. Reboots sometimes have wacky consequences.

stoli n coke: Phoenix_M: shower_in_my_socks: Phoenix_M: Of course the producers have tape of the original introduction showing Romney refusing to come out and they can prove it actually happened.

Oh wait the the entire story is bullshiat so they don't.


Uh, the source for this "bullshiat" story is one of the Univision anchors who moderated the event. What better source could you farking have? And why would they agree to reshoot the opening and then put the first opening online for everyone to look at? And how much more pissed would you mouth-breathing teatards be if they did release it? Also, be careful what you wish for.

Univision is owned by NBC if this story was true it would have been on Maddow, Matthews, Schultz & O'Donnell programs not some Farklite website. Some of you are just as stupid as the birthers.

Again, it's teh ebil Mainstream MSM Media trying to make poor wittle Mittens wook bad, isn't it, tiger?

It's okay. Maybe if you white, or more recently, orange knight for him, maybe he'll let you sniff one of Rafalca's turds.

No, but I'm terrified that my love and perusing of the politics tab is due to repressed sexual tension. I mean, am I the only one that assigns a porn starlet identity to each of the trolls?

Delay: Rwa2play: LordJiro: If Obama wins, it'll be because of...well, Obama, as he's actually been a fairly good president, considering the pile of shiat he was handed. But if he wins by a landslide, that's because of Romney.

Pretty much; Romney's campaign is going to have to hope he doesn't shiat the bed at the first debate. If he does, landslide territory could well be in play.

Three questions. Have you listened to Romney in the Republican debates?


Not much, there's only so much derp I can handle.

Objectively, what will President Obama's margin of victory need to be to be considered a landslide? 100 electoral votes?

Considering Obama won the EC in 2008 365-173, a repeat would just be a "convincing victory" rather than a landslide. The classic landslide magic number is 400 or more EVs (since the 50 states were in play beginning with the 1960 election); that number's been hit 4 times (LBJ 1964, Nixon 1972 and Reagan twice in 1980 and 1984) in 12 previous Presidential Elections.

The signs point to a repeat of 1996: Obama winning with the same amount that he scored in 2008. Then again, if Romney shiats the bed in the first debate and it goes downhill from there, maybe Obama gets to that magic number of 400.

Personally, if Obama were to (somehow) scoop up Texas, then 400 is in play.

...she said both campaigns initially agreed to keep the audience comprised mostly of students, in keeping with the events' education theme.

But after exhausting the few conservative groups on campus, the Romney camp realized there weren't enough sympathetic students to fill the stands on their night - so they told the network and university that if they weren't given an exemption to the students-only rule, they might have to "reschedule."
The organizers relented.


WTF? Mitt breaks the rules to give the appearance that he was better received and I'm finding this out through Buzzfeed?

Man, my theory that the makeup person made Mitt look like a dick because he was acting like one has suddenly found new evidence to support it.

I know a lot of Farkers are joking that he might drop an n-bomb. He won't do anything that bad, but I'm starting to think he'll lose composure in some noticeable way.


I would pay money to see that. I've known tightly wound rich guys in my time and they all inevitably melt down. My money is on Mittens saying something along the lines of "HOW DARE YOU DENY ME MY PRESIDENCY! I AM RICH! I AM BETTER THAN ALL YOU POOR F^&*S! I COULD BUY AND SELL YOUR SORRY FANNIES 50 TIMES A DAY! GOD LOVES ME BEST AND THAT'S WHY I'M RICH AND HE HATES YOU AND THAT'S WHY YOU'RE POOR AND MY MAGIC UNDERPANTS GIVE ME THE STRENGTH OF TEN RICH MEN WHARRGARRBLYINGTONGIDDLEIPOMALEHORMONESFOREVER!" Obama, of he has a lick of sense, will just watch the fireworks with a benign, detached expression and, when Mittens has collapsed on the floor muttering imprecations; Obama will say: "Mitt Romney, ladies and gentlemen.

MisterTweak: Chariset: What was this guy like as governor? Was he more humble, or was he just as bad but we never knew about it?

I was in MA a lot during his term. I don't recall him being especially awful, but being governor in most states, you attend ribbon-cuttings and crunch numbers; you usually don't have to negotiate directly with political opposition that is loud and public, and even on the rare cases you do, the results of a misunderstanding are not often catastrophic.

Romney probably should have given a bit more consideration to the possibility of if he won the presidency, how would he deal - simultaneously - with "friendly" nations who are trying to slip in a shiv, "hostile" nations using back-channels to offer or request assistance, a legislature that has 535 competing interests, a judiciary which is actually independent and can slice your man-parts off, and 300 million citizens, a significant majority of which consider you to be a tyrant and/or the earthly spokesman for demons. Oh, and a global economy which has changed a lot more than most of the voting public wants to realize... basically, it ain't a really good position for people who take things personally.


This is actually one of the best summaries of the difference between being governor and being president I have read, thanks.

Agreed. Electoral College-wise, Obama basically has already won the election. Only some sort of Zombie Apocalypse scenario will change that at this point.

The good thing about being an incumbent is that most of the skeletons are already out of the closet. With Romney, we ain't seen nothin' yet. A guy with his background would have to buy closet elevators to squeeze all those skeletons into his 16,000 closets. The October Surprise against him will knock the socks and the magic underpants off him.

These are cretins who actually believe that Jesus sent dolphins to protect Elian Gonzalez from sharks while adrift at sea (apparently Jesus didn't care about keeping the boat from sinking in the first place or all of those others who perished), and the Cuban-American dominated political structure is the most corrupt in History (even Boss Tweed would go "DAYYYYYYM!").

Romney picked fights he was destined to lose. His fight with Bulger was a classic.
He also wanted to ride the higher education system of tenure for the standard GOP reasons of not getting it.
MA was the wrong state to do that in. He was also pretty flip-floppy then.
One of the worst things was that he spent most of the 2nd half of his term out of state preparing for a run for president.

Pedantic quibble about your image.

A pretense is, by definition, a falsehood. (Which is why the phrase "false pretenses" used outside of legalese is onerous; it's impossible to have "true pretenses".).

It should read either:
"where an assertion is deemed true or false based on a pretense of equality"
Or:
"where an assertion is deemed true or false by assuming equality without basis."

I think it's probably the former, not the latter, but they're not mutually exclusive options.

Falcon; I have you tagged as "smart well written posts." So I got to ask; do you honestly believe him for a second?


Well, if you mean "believe anything he says", no, of course not. But if you mean "Do I believe that someone like him would be hired to cause a fuss and increase click-through revenue," I have to say, yes, I do. It's the only logical reason he's still here, and hasn't crawled away into the sewers like so many of our trolls in the past.

So wait a minute: let me see if I get this right:

Obama attends a live forum for a television network that caters to a demographic group where he leads by a large margin. The forum is held in front of an audience of college students: a demographic where he leads by a large margin.
He's in a friendly environment, yet falls flat on his face.

On the hand,
Romney a live forum for the same television network that caters to a demographic group where he is behind by a large margin.
The forum is held in front of an audience of college students : a demographic where he's also behind by a large margin.
He's in a hostile environment, yet he finds a way to game the network, stack the audience, and impose his will on the interviewers.
And he knocks it out of the park.


Now, this isn't about who you like more.
This isn't about which one you'd want to have a beer more,
or which one is more like the "average American".

This is about which one of these douchebags sitting across from Putin.
This is about which one you think can handle the Arabs.
This is about which one can deal with China. 

I don't like either of them, but this article showed that Romney at least has a clue.

Go back and read the article.

If he had to be douchey, then so be it.

Busing in supporters is just a normal thing for scumbag politicians to do these days...they all do it.

But it takes a true GOP candidate to demand an exception for the ringers, bus in people who ignore the rules against holding applause, then claim the more raucous crowd response means you have more support from the people who wouldn't show up in the first place.

It must take a lot of concentration and effort by Conservatives(tm) to not lie, out of habit, when someone asks them an every day question like their name or what they'd like to order at a restaurant.

Yup, having your supporters ignore the rules certainly will help him bridge the gap of 66% to 26% vs his opponent. Still doesn't explain your original point on how this will help with world leaders, especially since his foreign relations trip was a total disaster.

Romney is perfectly aware that he's not going to bridge that gap.

After all, last time we had a Republican President who was a complete asshole to pretty much everyone, that the rest of the world thought was a joke at best, but 'got what he wanted' (wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, lots of handouts for his (and his VP's) wealthy buddies), that did wonders for our country.

I cannot wait until this asshole loses, and loses badly. So badly that he never considers running for office again. I wanted McCain to lose. I want Romney to be humiliated.


He and the GOP will richly deserve every last bit of it.

During primaries and caucuses, they bullied the Paulaneers, turned of our mics and lights when we spoke, handed out fake farking delegate slates, stole vote boxes, etc.

RON PAUL qualified for plurality with 6 states. The requirement was 5. After he had already qualified, they changed the requirement to 8.

They refused to let him speak at the convention unless he endorsed Rmoney.

They permitted his son to speak, but only under the condition that he never mention his father's name.

They refused to seat duly-elected delegates.

In all, Rmoney and the GOP turned the entire thing into a fiasco. When Rmoney fails (and he will), they will blame us, claiming we 'split the vote'.

Of the Paulaneers I know, about half are voting for Gary Johnson and the other half writing in RON PAUL. Yes, they know it won't count. They refuse to vote for Rmoney.

When that blame starts flying, I will welcome it and wear it as a farking badge of honor. Fark Rmoney. Fark the GOP.

Who - because he or she is in a combat zone, risking their lives and too many having given their lives - he is not paying any tax on his salary."

"hostile" nations using back-channels to offer or request assistance,

TAX CUTS AND CORPORATE WELFARE

a legislature that has 535 competing interests,

TAX CUTS AND CORPORATE WELFARE

a judiciary which is actually independent and can slice your man-parts off,

TAX CUTS AND CORPORATE WELFARE

and 300 million citizens, a significant majority of which consider you to be a tyrant and/or the earthly spokesman for demons.

TAX CUTS AND CORPORATE WELFARE

Oh, and a global economy which has changed a lot more than most of the voting public wants to realize...

Romney a live forum for the same television network that caters to a demographic group where he is behind by a large margin.
The forum is held in front of an audience of college students : a demographic where he's also behind by a large margin.
He's in a hostile environment, yet he finds a way to game the network, stack the audience, and impose his will on the interviewers.
And he knocks it out of the park.


Now, this isn't about who you like more.
This isn't about which one you'd want to have a beer more,
or which one is more like the "average American".

This is about which one of these douchebags sitting across from Putin.
This is about which one you think can handle the Arabs.
This is about which one can deal with China. 

I don't like either of them, but this article showed that Romney at least has a clue.

ScreamingHangover: Fart_Machine: How does busing in a peanut gallery help you with World Leaders? Or were you referring to the tantrum he threw when things didn't go his way. I'm sure that will impress them.

Did they both lead to him getting a positive result?
He walked into a hostile environment and imposed his will, getting exactly what he wantedl.

Douchey? Yep.
Successful? Yep.

When it comes to elected office, I vote for the one who can get the job done even if I don't like him personally.



They were both successful. Obama wanted to talk about policy to a respectful crowd of students. Romney wanted to be cheered by adoring fans, regardless of the rules. They both got what they wanted.

Chariset: What was this guy like as governor? Was he more humble, or was he just as bad but we never knew about it?


Mostly? Absent. He spent a LOT of time running around the country badmouthing the state (because we got marriage equality on his watch and he didn't like it) as a preamble to his running for president in 2008.

At the time we weren't very happy having a governor that didn't really care about governing other than trying to limit same-sex marriage. In retrospect we're glad he didn't screw the state more than he was able to.

MisterTweak: Chariset: What was this guy like as governor? Was he more humble, or was he just as bad but we never knew about it?

I was in MA a lot during his term. I don't recall him being especially awful, but being governor in most states, you attend ribbon-cuttings and crunch numbers; you usually don't have to negotiate directly with political opposition that is loud and public, and even on the rare cases you do, the results of a misunderstanding are not often catastrophic.


Maybe in Texas, that's true, but in most other states, the governor wields significant power. Your governors can't even pardon a condemned man without permission from the parole board, which is just pathetic.

tenpoundsofcheese: drdamned: I can't wait for the debates.

considering that the 0bama campaign is already trying to downplay them and set lower expectations, neither can I.


Apparently it's a valid strategy, based on reactions to the Palin-Biden debate.

ScreamingHangover: So wait a minute: let me see if I get this right:

Obama attends a live forum for a television network that caters to a demographic group where he leads by a large margin. The forum is held in front of an audience of college students: a demographic where he leads by a large margin.
He's in a friendly environment, yet falls flat on his face.

On the hand,
Romney a live forum for the same television network that caters to a demographic group where he is behind by a large margin.
The forum is held in front of an audience of college students : a demographic where he's also behind by a large margin.
He's in a hostile environment, yet he finds a way to game the network, stack the audience, and impose his will on the interviewers.
And he knocks it out of the park.

It wouldn't be the first time. He also blew up on some poor parking attendant at the Olympics.

The host should have gone back out there and said, "Sorry, folks, Mitt Romney doesn't think you're worth even the 35 minutes." Or whatever the Spanish equivalent of that would be.

Even the author admits Romney's appearance was a success while Obama pretty much fell flat.

Yup, having your supporters ignore the rules certainly will help him bridge the gap of 66% to 26% vs his opponent.

Go back and read the article. Again.
Towards the end.

Romney is perfectly aware that he's not going to bridge that gap.
He's also aware that he doesn't need to.
He just needs to pick up Cuban swing voters in Florida.

Which he can't because Paul Ryan supports the embargo.


Apparently, you're unfamiliar with the Cuban vote in Florida

Dude, your continuous trolling makes me think you have a mild form of OCD. Talk to your doctor about Prozac. I think it might really help. And once you get your head on straight, find a dermatologist and a dentist to help you with whatever is wrong with your face that prevents you from having real life interests. Then, start going to a gym with group classes and get in shape and meet people.

Seriously, fix your pathetic life, because what you do on fark all day is just sad.

one of Ripley's Bad Guys: FTA: "Romney has more work to do than Obama does in winning over the Latino electorate, with recent polls showing the president leading in that demographic nationally by as many as 50 percentage points. But the gap is much smaller among Florida Hispanics, who include a large, right-leaning Cuban exile minority"

How long do we have to pander to these buffoons? It has been 50+ years since they fled - they are not getting their brothels and other stuff back...


Besides, they've managed to build a pretty good facsimile of pre-Castro Cuba in Miami-Dade.

Of the Paulaneers I know, about half are voting for Gary Johnson and the other half writing in RON PAUL. Yes, they know it won't count. They refuse to vote for Rmoney.

When that blame starts flying, I will welcome it and wear it as a farking badge of honor. Fark Rmoney. Fark the GOP.


Dear Babby Jesus,

I know I haven't prayed to you since...well, ever, actually. But here is your chance to convert this old atheist. I just need one small miracle.

Let this election be close, with Obama winning by narrow margins in one or more swing states. And let that margin be smaller than the combined Gary Johnson and RON PAUL write-in votes. Let's see the right's version of Nader voters fark them out of the White House.

Do that, and I will be good with the whole sky-wizard concept and figure I'm going to hell. I live in South Florida, so I probably won't notice the change.

vartian: But after exhausting the few conservative groups on campus, the Romney camp realized there weren't enough sympathetic students to fill the stands on their night - so they told the network and university that if they weren't given an exemption to the students-only rule, they might have to "reschedule."

I cannot wait until this asshole loses, and loses badly. So badly that he never considers running for office again. I wanted McCain to lose. I want Romney to be humiliated.
