You know, having watched the interview, I can't believe that 60 Minutes let that bit of bullshiattary go unchallenged.

Romney said a lot of really dopey and factually deficient things and wasn't pressed on them.

He really IS this freakin' stupid, isn't he?

Hey Mitt, first aid is not healthcare. Idiot.

Does he actually have himself a quota of one blindingly-stupid statement a day minimum? It's been pretty clockwork lately.

I want to be making ads for the Obama campaign. It seems like the easiest job in the world right now.

"In 2007, Romney said that when the uninsured show up in emergency rooms and get free health care, that's a "form of socialism." By contrast, his health care law was conservative and inspired by the Heritage Foundation, something that is true and that the Heritage Foundation would probably like people to forget."

***

But ABC News' Michael Falcone pulls up video from a January 2008 Republican presidential primary debate in which Romney seems to think such a tax is pretty great. When the debate moderator asks, "Governor ... you imposed tax penalties in Massachusetts?" Romney defends the mandate by framing it terms of personal responsibility. "Yes, we said, look, if people can afford to buy it, either buy the insurance or pay your own way," he said. "Don't be free-riders."

He got nothing but softballs. A single follow-up question would have blown him out of the water.

Maybe the 60 Minutes producers have stock in Bain Capital?

This is one of those big lies from the healthcare reform debates from a few years ago. The conservative narrative is that healthcare reform is unnecessary because sick people can already get treatment by going to emergency rooms.

Of course, emergency rooms can't treat ongoing conditions like cancer or degenerative diseases, nor are they cheap (the cost is passed onto every insured individual, but at a significantly higher cost than if they were just insured in the first place).
 
2012-09-24 10:05:31 AM
Translation to you mouth breathing conservatrolls: This is the f*cking reason your insurance premiums are so high. Free-loading ER douchebags.

But please, keep white knighting....

I normally get really pissed off about the fact that we don't really have journalism on the networks and things don't get challenged, but the stupidity in this comment is so self-evident I'm not sure I care. Anyone who has ever paid of insurance knows that this is asshattery.

Pelley: "What deductions and exemptions would you eliminate?"
Romney: "Well, that's something Congress and I will have to figure out."
Pelley: "With all due respect, you're running to be president. The devil is in the details. Which exemptions?"
Romney: "The devil is in the details, but the angel is in the policy."

I'm convinced that there are corporate-minded editors in many newsrooms in the US that would just *love* the corporate anarchy brought about by a Romney presidency. They live by corporate (a)morality and they just love it when the corporations steamroll over everything. That's why Romney has often gotten a major get out of jail free card in these interviews.
 
2012-09-24 10:09:34 AM
If you question anything a republican says you will be part of the liberal lamestream driveby media conspiracy, spineless reporters and news agencies have taken this to mean they should treat republicans with kid gloves instead of just ignoring their whining because it won't stop unless you just report a constant stream of republican press releases.

Romney: The holy ghost is in the exemptions.
Pelley: Can you just give an example?
Romney: Jesus would give a policy, not an example.
Pelley: Does your policy have any examples?

Bob Barker should be the head of the GOP since the GOP has more or less spayed / neutered all the pussies in the media.

Oh man, remember back in May when everybody thought Romney was so boring and would run a straight-laced, by the numbers campaign? Who could have guessed he would be a wrecking ball that constantly and hilariously demolished everything his campaign tried to build?

They just have to stabilize you; they don't have to provide treatment beyond that. Of course, the cost gets passed on to those of us who do have insurance.

He may have tried and it got edited down. Romney wasn't going to answer the question. AND networks today are so fearful of becoming labeled "left leaning" that they throw softballs to both sides to try and show balance.

And R'Money has never had any problems paying for insurance. And anyone that has must be lazy and not one of the "producers" and should be die an ease the surplus population problem.

"The devil is in the details but the angel is in the policy"? WTF does that even mean? Give me your policy you stupid asshat! Oh, and I'm tired of people from your campaign calling me without any knowledge of your policies, too. Educate those idiots cause I'm tired of doing it for you.

On the plus side, I think I turned a couple. They were pretty shocked about what I was able to tell them of Romney's ideas.

Nah. They are scared of the GOP noise machine, for whatever reason. Most of them will give anyone with a "D" after their name a rougher ride, regardless of their own leanings, because they will take a beating from all kinds of lunatic attack dogs if they are seen as picking on good Conservatives.

Ok, so the Obama 2016 movie is out and a big hit with derpers. How about "Mitt Romney: Retarded Dick for Hire". Just cobble everything he ever said about anything together into a 90 min gag reel - it can be a senior film project - and then release to the masses, give proceeds to the townsfolk of every plant / business Bain ever closed.

I've heard otherwise intelligent adults make this argument.

This seems like the trend in modern (lazy) journalism. Get someone to say something ridiculous or completely false and let the internet and Stewart/Colbert pick it apart. That way, they don't have to actually, you know, work, or risk future interviews.

My opinion, anyway.
