I put more weight on what you say in private when you think no one is watching than on what you say in public when you're trying to come from behind.

They are now using the Scott Walker method to get elected. It works. Say anything to get elected, then screw 'em. Walker got elected in Wisconsin by promising to create 250000 jobs with a secret invisible plan that nobody was allowed to see. Hell, 250K jobs aren't created nationwide, it was impossible, but Walker promised it. People believed him and voted for him and of course we have jobs lost. Then during the recall, he pulled it out again, saying that he jobs would come "just after the recall" and people believed again. Instead Wisconsin is a giant ball of failure and is among the lowest in the country for job creation.

It works. You say anything, no matter how outrageous, then screw em once you are elected. It is almost impossible to defend against, the secret plan can't be critiqued because there are no details on how it would work and the candidate promises whatever you want to hear.

Absolutely this. The man's a lying self-centered egomaniac, and the only reason he's changing positions and apologizing for what he's said is because he thinks it will get him more votes. You'd have to be an idiot to think that, after all the times he's flip-flopped on an issue, this time he's being sincere? No, he's an opportunist and his first statement is what he truly believes.

Slaves2Darkness: Poor Romeny. This guy just can't get a break, he completely dominated the debates and won, but still loses because he had to go and threaten Big Bird. Well not to mention he is lying through his teeth and nobody knows what the fark his economic policies are, how he would handle foreign affairs, but we do know he hates the gays, atheists, and other deviants and does not even consider them American citizens.


Well, to be fair, he used to say he liked the gays. And then now he changed his mind and think they are less than human and not deserving of equal rights. He saw the light, and the light spelled out politically convenient bigotry.

Totally horrifying to see Romney so in control of the mindless masses of the GOP. He knows them way to well and is playing them like a deck of cards or a game of Chess or whatever game analogy you want to make. He knows at this point he has the base locked up and no matter what direction he heads, he only needs to make sure to add one tiny thing to all of his speeches, "Obama is BAD!" and the crowd will love it. He is tacking back towards the center to appease the undecideds who are just tuning in and the damn sheep of the GOP still fawn over him as if he is their candidate of choice without so much as blinking at the fact that he is now ditching the same convictions that originally won their interests. I knew the far right GOP had problems but this takes the cake... No convictions, just a petty desire to win at all costs.

This is the Etch-A-Sketch thing again. He won the debate by feigning ignorance on everything he's talked about for the past year ($5T? Where'd you get that? I love everything about the ACA, I would just implement it at the state level and not federally. I don't want to cut taxes for the rich? What are you talking about?) and the base didn't go screaming into the night. So now his campaign is telling him he can afford to go more moderate. The base is evidently locked up and he can now concentrate on appearing more centrist.

And you know what? It'll probably work. The base will never vote for Obama, especially this late in the game. This is their new tactic to attract that mystical Undecided Vote. Will 5 weeks of the "Kindler, Gentler Romney" be enough, though? Doubtful. Also, the undecideds can't be THAT stupid that they'll suddenly forget a year's worth of campaigning. And you know Obama's ads will be blasting him for flip-flopping AGAIN.

Romney : "You want me to reduce the deficit? sure, i will do that if you elect me. You want me to make more jobs? sure, 12 million more if you elect me. You want lower taxes? sure, top rate will go down to 28% if you elect me."

Obama : "Are you going to tell us how you plan to do this?"

Romney : "Sure, if you elect me."

I'm shocked that you would make some milquetoast apology and appear genuine and sincere on a cupcake interview on Fox News. I'm also shocked that you would be arrogant and divisive in a closed-door fundraiser when you figured nobody would find out what you said.

Shocked and awed.

"It's not elegantly stated, let me put it that way. I was speaking off the cuff in response to a question. And I'm sure I could state it more clearly in a more effective way than I did in a setting like that."

Then what exactly were you trying to say Mitt? I think you said exactly what you meant to say. You regret it now only because it revealed you to be the elitist jerk that you are.

Yet another thing where Romney believes one thing one moment and the complete opposite the next. It's obviously worked well for him in the type of business world/environment where he made millions no matter the consequences to others, but it does not work so well in leading the government of the people, by the people, for the people. Does this man have any core beliefs other than "I want money and power"?

All that Romney and his handlers have discovered is they can completely lie and swing towards the center and the rabid base doesn't give a shiat. They just want to win. They see an opportunity and they are seizing it.

Obama needs to fight back. He needs to call them out on their lies and strongly differentiate himself from Romney. What happened in the first debate cannot continue.

Whiskey Pete: How long before the DERP brigade have a moment of rational insight and perhaps realize that Mitt has been less than forthright?


If he wins? About 9 years. Just like Dubya they'll call Mitt a liar and a RINO right after they don't need to vote for or defend him anymore.

Nadie_AZ: If Obama had *ever* disparaged a large group of people in the country - ever - Fox News would run that thing every 2 weeks as a reminder of his true feelings on the matter. It would not matter if Obama had said it 10 years ago and apologized for it a few months later, they would have entire shows showing how he still believes this.

Romney can't walk back his statement, but Fox News will, I'm sure, say 'see, he didn't mean it'.


No need to even use "What ifs"... Just go back to the 2008 campaign and see how they ran with the "clinging to religion and guns" comment.

deeproy: Odd that he'd bring up those remarks now (after the debate). They didn't come up during the debates and he "won", so why remind everyone he made these comments?

My thought: his internals show him doing worse after the debates (mostly around like-ability) and he needs to start re-framing himself as a moderate to turn those numbers around.

The sad thing is it may be too late. He should have dis-owned those remarks them moment they came out, well before he tried to shift center. Then the debates may have had a bigger impact. But now it is too late, and all he can do is remind people that he said what he said and look more like a lair.

Just a thought.


This won't work with your informed voter however it is not directed at them. You can see the core GOP is not effected by this in the least and is generally geared towards the undecided who are just now tuning in. Those people who have not heard him speak and still think that Romney is politically ever so slightly right of center based on his tenure in Mass. Sadly it will work on that group because they tend to be intellectually lazy and need everything spoon fed to them.

Best hope the Dems have at this stage is to collect everything that Romney has said and nail him to the wall as either a massive flip flopper or a strait up hard right liar. Neither of that is occurring with any kind of resolve.

A week from now, the only thing anybody will remember about that "debate" is that Romney wants to fire Big Bird.

You know how they keep talking about a campaign reboot but it never seemed to happen? They were having technical issues for a while but just before the debate they finally got Mitt successfully rebooted. The only problem is that they had to use the boot disk from his gubernatorial campaign.

Romney had his reversal on the 47% prepared for the debate so that if Obama mentioned 47 Romney could try to fluster Obama with yet more repudiation of himself in his mad dash toward the center.

I think Obama was right to play it cool and not personally attack Romney because that meant that all of Romney's reversals were just Romney responding to himself.

Since he couldn't use the line then he gets someone to ask him what he would have said if Obama had brought it up.

Wisconsites were retarded enough to elect that asshole, then overwhelming voted against recalling him. Fark em. Let them eat cat food and deal with the consequences. That's the only with idiots like that learn anything.


Unfortunately, the technique works.
Walker has even taken to spinning the jobs numbers to count "jobs created". For example, if two people lose their family supporting jobs, and one entry level minimum wage job starts during that same period, that is a Walker "job created", jobs "created" is now 1., not -1. We call those "WalkerJobs".
