PallMall: sprawl15: I have already reported you for racism.

How is that racist? Why don't you go do a GIS for "speak no evil hear no evil" and see what pops up?


500 years of comparing africans to apes. yeah, that isn't racist at all. :rolleyes:

Jim_Callahan: Bringing notes in seems reasonable, maybe if Romney had better notes he wouldn't have lit the pants-on-fire meter into a godzilla-creating atomic inferno in every fact-check organization in the world.


That isn't what politifact said.

Snowflake Tubbybottom: Haven't bothered to read some 500 posts but has anyone pointed out that the source just assumes he cheated without knowing the predetermined debate rules?


First off, why would you "sneak" notes out there (assuming that's what happened) if they were OK to have? It's like sneaking peeks at your book during an open-book test.

The rules for this series of debates haven't been released, but the rules from 2004 clearly state that notes are not to be brought in.

Helps to watch the actual vid...I mean, I'm personally in the 'I don't give a shiat, I care about his nonstop lying' camp, but yeah, he took paper out of his pocket. That's not exactly under dispute here.

yes. yes it is under dispute. or rather, that idea has been entirely repudiated. 'twas a handkerchief

Is there any logical reason for Romney to put a handkerchief on the table?

I'm actually impressed you managed to write something so absurdly pitiful.

I have to wonder, what the hell do people expect as a response to things like this? It's not like there was any argument given, any thought expressed...no, just 'U Bad'. Seriously, is this just a polite way of saying 'I'm an asshole'?



No, that was a polite way of saying you're farking retarded. Look what you just wrote. You are asking for a logical reason for Romney putting a handkerchief on a table. You want an honest discussion and debate about the merits of placing a handkerchief on a table. A farking handkerchief on a farking table. This is what you want to discuss.

You sound concerned.

Beanlet: Podmore: I don't care for Romney, and I generally feel that Republican politicians are more likely to lie, cheat, distort facts, and manipulate voters than Democratic ones. So I especially hate it when liberals jump on something like this and declare it true without the facts. It's fine that the question was raised; if he did cheat, that would be a character issue if nothing else, but credible analysts were saying handkerchief, and he used it later in the debate. To keep saying it was notes is to be like the climate change deniers, who ignore the credible evidence and hang on the lunatic fringe.

It just makes us look bad.

Oo look, my husband called me a credible analyst! Three minutes apart, said basically the same thing. This is why we're so good together. =)


And in case people don't realize it, she's at home and I'm at work, and haven't really talked today.

Please dems, leave this silly sort of wishful thinking and ignoring of the evidence to the republicans.

I honestly could not care less if Romney was cheating or not, but ffs, I'm hardly going to claim something that stiff is a handkerchief when the guy actually would need notes. That's like saying 'Oh, yeah, that person is legally blind, but I'm sure she's just carrying that red-and-white cane for the looks of it'.

i'm surprised at how many of you are thinking about this so linearly. why couldn't he have thrown both his notes AND a handkerchief on the table? then he's got his notes to read and a handkerchief to cover them up/use to make it seem normal. or he could've just written the notes onto the handkerchief itself. it's like you guys have never cheated in school before.

bdub77: Johnny Swank: I think Romney is a cockbag, but this is a stupid, stupid conspiracy theory. There's 235,239 more things to pound the cult leader with.

This.

I'm sorry, I very highly doubt he cheated. He came prepared. I mean he was full of sh*t, but he came prepared. Obama's lack of emotional delivery and lack of attacks on easy targets was the phenomenon that defined the debate. No one perhaps outside of Obama really knows why, but I think the reason people are shocked is because this is really not the Obama we have seen.

I saw the debates in 2008. Obama was not this passive. He wasn't incredibly aggressive, but he didn't act like a chump on stage. Many people, mostly conservatives, think his passivity was from too much teleprompter, but that is BS, the GOP wants to paint Obama as a weak president, and the teleprompter lies play into it.

I think something else was up. I don't know if it was campaign strategy, off night, personal problems, international problems, what, but he was either distracted or doing it on purpose. He still came off fine to me, a person with a plan and ideas who shared them if boringly. But he didn't blow me away - neither did he do it at the convention. There are clues, like his memoir, that Obama is an introspective person. He might just be a little tired right now. The job runs you down. And there's such hate out there for Obama, mindboggling hate. The economy has been improving steadily month after month. Unemployment is down under 8% now. And yet people are still mad at him, like it's his fault for taking out a bad mortgage or financial chicanery or offshoring jobs.

This country is full of cowards, small people living unimportant lives of quiet desperation who want to blame everyone for their situation except themselves.

I'm kind of tired of theorizing about it. Doesn't affect my vote in the least. I know whose ideas are bankrupt both logically and morally.


>>>>>the teleprompter lies

Citation needed

>>>>>The economy has been improving steadily month after month.

Really? Not here in Southern California. Well, let me amend that. There are a lot of people running around with new cars. New luxury homes are being built and bought. Some businesses are booming. But there is a huge, forgotten underclass of about 15% that have been simply discarded.

Recovery? Your mileage may vary.

imagine this.. Romney is a sweaty old perv.. he needs the handkerchief to keep his palms and forehead from dripping sweat when he's nervous. The bulging eyes, which got redder and redder as the night went on, aren't the only outsider indicator that he was nervous. He wiped his face a few times. I will be honest and admit that I have sweaty palms (I may be old and I may be a perv, too). I keep a tissue in my hand before I am going to shake someone's hand so I don't gross them out. I toss it into the other hand or my pocket in the last moments before I am to shake the hand. He may not have been shaking hands at the podium, but he was definitely sweating up a storm, his upper lip and brow were damp, so I assume his palms were sweaty too. It would be better to have that kerchief on the podium, rather than looking like he was playing pocket pool every time he went for said kerchief.

If he had notes, he sucks at reading them, since he tossed out numbers that we all know aren't correct. He'd have gotten his "zingers" correct, too.. the "you can have your own house, your own plane, but not your own facts" wasn't something he'd have written down, since it applied directly to HIM, not Obama. Most of his "zingers" were like that.. they seemed like he was taunting himself. I'd like to think that's why Obama was looking down at his notes, thinking "wow, this guy has no clue what he's talking about and I am supposed to response with.. what??"

I dislike Romney as much as the next guy/girl.. but making a big deal out of a handkercheif is just derp and is a detriment to anyone who wants to be taken seriously the next time there is a Republican derp thread happening here.  (go check out the jobs report thread.. you can't exactly say they are being ridiculous to think the numbers are falsified if you are over here derping about a handkerchief)

What happened to dude's Univision tan?


probably was a handkerchief. it was the way he took it out and tossed it on the table that annoyed me. remember that 'nailed it' .jpg? and
the folks voting for Romney call Obama uppity and disrespectful. you know how Obama got called out in some quarters for referring to people in the 45 to 55 age range and how they should be concerned, how he was called disrespectful using the phrasing he did? well, i'm going to use that same card against Romney, for how he took that handkerchief out of his pocket and slam tossed it on the podium.

Some folks are going to be attracted to what he did. I just know, if Obama had done it, it would have been called a gangsta move, and not ina complimentary way.

He had to do a complete 180 on his positions, and it's not like there's a law saying he can ONLY have a handkerchief OR a notecard.

It would be better to have that kerchief on the podium, rather than looking like he was playing pocket pool every time he went for said kerchief.

If he had notes, he sucks at reading them, since he tossed out numbers that we all know aren't correct. He'd have gotten his "zingers" correct, too.. the "you can have your own house, your own plane, but not your own facts" wasn't something he'd have written down, since it applied directly to HIM, not Obama. Most of his "zingers" were like that.. they seemed like he was taunting himself. I'd like to think that's why Obama was looking down at his notes, thinking "wow, this guy has no clue what he's talking about and I am supposed to response with.. what??"

I dislike Romney as much as the next guy/girl.. but making a big deal out of a handkercheif is just ...


I read a lot of 'Is Romney coked up wtf?' comments last night LOL

You can have notes with the 'wrong' information on them, as long as the information is stuff the base already accepts as true. Just keep hammering home the narrative. And then contradict yourself by saying you agree with Mr. President 5 million times in the same debate.

Quantum Romney taunting himself is the norm, not the exception. Case in point: the dance regarding Obamacare/Romneycare.

I'm biased and bigoted: I don't like Romney. I don't like his politics. I don't like his religion. I don't like his lack of an ethical center. I don't like his smirk. I don't like him. I'm more biased than the average nutcase because I started out liking him and defending him, many moons ago -- before he burned his bridges for the resume enhancer at any price. Romney is the equivalent of a straight gay activist jumping on the marriage is between a man and a woman bandwagon because it pays more bills. Romney has no convictions except whatever will keep him in clover with the Quorum back in Salt Lake.

Better to deal with a man who has a strong center but is willing to compromise, over a man who has no center and is all over the place due to chasing dollar signs.

PsiChick: He had to do a complete 180 on his positions, and it's not like there's a law saying he can ONLY have a handkerchief OR a notecard.

Again: I really don't give a shiat, the guy was outright lying in the debate. This just amuses me. Either he cheated, or he looked like he was cheating.

Either way, I'm amused.


I wish I could be amused, too. Instead, I am horrified that this guy is THAT close to being the president of our country. My husband and I are jokingly looking at other countries to move to.. sadly, I am only half-joking. If Romney wins and puts four or more SC justices in position, women's rights will be in the toilet. I don't look forward to my daughter and granddaughter becoming adult females in a country where their rights are less than a man's other "possessions." A lot of people think that we have fewer personal freedoms under Obama and it is mind-boggling that they truly believe things will get better, in that respect, under Romney. And a lot of people laugh it off, saying he can't make that big of a difference.. but the ability to appoint FOUR Supreme Court judges? That is handing one person an awful lot of power to decide our futures. A lot of people are willing to put Romney in that position, it is scary. Sadly, a lot of other people, the uneducated, the poor, don't realize what that means to them, they are just listening to the talking points, seeing Obama's skin color and allowing themselves to be swept up into the hype.
