Its hard out there - I'd like to see any of you duplicitous farkers jump in the ring and see if you can survive against the mainstream liberal media.

I have to say - the Democrats are on the ball when it comes to finding film clips of Romney contradicting himself.

I'm amazed. After several months of people just saying "play clips of Mitt/GOP saying stuff as Obama ads"...this seems to be standard operating procedure now. What is this...four or five now?

I think most of us would do ok, if we had millions of dollars to spend on hiring people who have extensive experience in surviving the media...

I actually had to listen to Mitt telling me how great he is for the middle class to watch that video.

It's not exactly hard to do. Self-contradiction is pretty much Mitt's bread and butter bruschetta and caviar.

I think you're mistaken. It won't change the mind of someone who can say "Keep your government hands off my Medicare," but there are people who can hear things other than dogwhistles, and they're going to start to see cracks in the facade.

How many, I don't know. But the "flip-flop" thing was fatal to Kerry.

Odds are you could just search youtube for any two mitt romney videos and you'd there.

This guy is seriously running on "Don't vote for who I was, vote for who I say I will be!".

nah, there's an art to it. you have to find the exact quote you need for the issue at hand. then you have to work that quote into a short ad spot and make it work. it takes talent to do that and get it right.

anyways, Romney does seem to be his own worst enemy these days.

The political farkstorm on facebook has pretty much ceased. No debates. No propoganda. No one cares anymore. The 47 percent video took the wind out of the sails.

That's the thing - how many of these people are genuinely out there?

Honestly, in the 24-hour news cycle, if you don't already know what an undeniable hypocrite Mitt Romney is, then you probably just don't care. I feel like whatever "undecided" voters are still out there are just itching to vote Republican yet again, but can't bring themselves to do so.

And his vp pick's answer to why people should vote Romney? 'If you don't want Obama to win, don't vote Ron Paul.'

True but I see it as a defensive move. The ad will undercut Romney's credibility during the debates making it harder for him to flip any votes.

They should have spun the ER message deeper.

All those people clogging ERs (and closing them to trauma - that is what ERs do when they are full, ambulances are sent elsewhere - generally farther away) are making it more difficult to care for everyone, including the insured, That means that some patients will die because they won't be treated as quickly as possible. That patient might be you.

I think this one could have an affect.

Whichever side you are on regarding healthcare, you have now seen Romney disagree with you. You have also seen him being two-faced about one of his signature issues.

I think this one is a winner.

I think we're already seeing the usual excuses of "He wasn't a true conservative" and "We need someone more conservative next time."

Romney's hypocrisy and bald-faced lies is a target rich environment... It would be foolish for the Democrats not to exploit it.

I hope Obama nails him with some of these in the debates.

Exactly, all Obama has to do is keep Mitt on the ropes because he's currently getting his ass handed to him. Mitt has been forced to do nothing but play defense and Obama isn't going to give the ball up in the last 2:00 minutes for Mitt to score more points.

All Obama has to do is set up a tv in his debate spot on the second debate and just play everything Romney said on the first debate. It will be like two opposite Romneys.

In a world where Republicans can't read or learn stuff, one man dares to convince ALL of them that the elitist former Harvard Law Review editor and all around decent guy president is a Kenyan Muslim with Socialist Leanings towards Fascism.

It's a race against time to use pandering, gerrymandering and contextually misleading or blatant Fox News lies to gin up the base with enough red meat they'll vote Fartbongo back to the Ghetto!

This Fall, the threatdown gets real! This fall, experience Mittochondriacs!

What does that mean exactly. That's popped up in Mitt's ads, but I don't understand what he is referring to.

The ad would have been better if it corrected Mitt's claim that ER is free to patient. It's not. They get billed. They just don't get denied treatment.

It's not "free" until after they file chapter 7 IIRC.

IT also forces Romney to talk about his plans for the ACA which, if recall, got Ryan boo'ed off the stage at an AARP event. Romney needs old people to vote for him and it looks like Romney's plans for healthcare aren't popular with that group.

It would be Obama's equivalent of Reagan saying "There you go again ..." to Mondale.
