ROMNEY: His idea now. He's got one new, one new idea. I admit this, he has one thing he did not do in his first four years, said he's going to do in his next four years, which is to raise taxes. And is there anybody who thinks that raising taxes will help grow the economy?

Ryan looks like he saying 'Oh shiat' at about the 14 second mark.

he probably bought it for the NRO-sponsored $500-a-head "conservative cruise" he'll undoubtedly be attending next spring.

Well, that didn't take long for his spin-doctors to release a statement:

The Romney campaign responds: "President Obama has raised taxes on millions of middle-class Americans during his first term in office," said spokeswoman Amanda Henneberg. "Governor Romney was clearly communicating about an additional tax increase President Obama is proposing on American small businesses that will jeopardize over 700,000 jobs."


???

Do you think someone from his campaign will die from alcohol poisoning?

Someone spiked the good hooch with some methanol because most members of the Romney campaign are blind as bats

neglogon: "Governor Romney was clearly communicating about an additional tax increase President Obama is proposing on American small businesses that will jeopardize over 700,000 jobs."




Except that doesn't take the "he didn't raise taxes" statement back. It doesn't even really address it.

Man. Romney just looks really stressed, frustrated and exhausted in that clip. Maybe that's to be expected or it's the weather or something.

Interestingly, Mr. Romney then claims that President Obama will continue the "status quo", in contradiction to his claim that President Obama will raise taxes.
 
2012-09-25 06:24:24 PM
In that speech he also said that Obama won't be President for 4 more years. That's a pretty sketchy claim.
 
2012-09-25 06:24:30 PM
He said what???

Sorry, I was too busy noticing that he hasn't done a thing to fix that bad spray tan he got last week in a pathetic attempt to appeal to us brown folks (especially at the 27 second mark...ho lee crap).

I didn't see that. I did see that he wanted nothing to do with his running mate. He had a look of 'can I go now?'

he'll raise taxes. he'll take your guns away. he'll cut military spending.

SpikeStrip: he'll raise taxes. he'll take your guns away. he'll cut military spending.


Well, to be fair, Bush's Tax Cuts end. Taxes will rise as a result. The GOP got their military spending cut last year during the debt ceiling debacle. And nobody is doing squat about guns. Except the NRA. And they want everyone standing their ground while running towards somebody.

Just when it's no longer possible for Mitt Romney to become more loathsome, he goes and tops himself.

I dunno. He told the truth. It isn't a gaffe, it's an admission he can't beat Obama on policy issues.

Aarontology: I swear to god, Romney has to be on the payroll of Obama's campaign ad team.


Yep. I keep wondering if Romney's deliberately sabotaging his own campaign.
I mean, is it even possible for someone to be this obtuse by accident?

If he's re-elected there'll be nothing to stop him!!! He'll have his army of illegal immigrants round up all the Republicans and throw them into the FEMA gay communist muslim re-education / forced abortion camps!

To be fair, it never occurred to Romney when planning this campaign that policy would ever matter. It never occurred to him that he'd have to campaign.

I'm as big a fan of schadenfreude as the next guy, but I was thoroughly underwhelmed by Ryan's response after all the buildup here.

\dial it back submitter
\\can't believe Romney actually said out loud that Obama didn't raise taxes.
\\\Next he'll be saying that Obama started to get spending under control
 
2012-09-25 07:31:14 PM
That's what passes for the Romney outrage of the day? The momentum is gone.

doesn't he have handlers that help him with his contradictions & mis-speakings!?

/Isn't anybody going to help that poor man!?
 
2012-09-25 07:32:58 PM
Wait.

Romney said that Obama hasn't raised taxes in the past 4 years and that he will in the next 4. Then in like the next sentence, he says that Obama's plan is to keep doing "what he has done before"/"the status quo", which is...not to raise taxes?......or not?

I'm confused.

He'll use the last sheet of toilet paper and won't put another new roll on. He'll ninja the DPS gear you need.

Also, this. Total Obama supporter, but more than a bit of the outrage against Romney does have a very astroturfed feel. this is one of those things.

Europe, his tax returns, and lack of substance, OTOH...

question_dj: Paul Ryan is wearing The North Face. He must go on a lot of adventures.


That was my first thought when I saw it too though it wouldn't surprise me too much if Ryan actually had climbed a mountain or two. I did imagine a thought bubble over his head "Shut up old man, don't ruin this for me."

Yes! And he'll be as welcome as a dog turd on a dance floor...
