Didn't read many of the posts in this thread, but here is my take:

Assuming for just a moment that it was actually notes that Mitt took out of his pocket and not the handkerchief that it obviously was, what did these notes say? "Remember to refute everything you've said in your entire campaign"? "Medicare savings are really cuts"? "Rate reductions are not tax cuts"? "You don't like the federal government and that's why you want to run it"? "You like teachers this week"? "When asked for specifics, reiterate your five vague talking points"? "Don't stop talking when your time is up"?

FormlessOne: This very rationalization is why the media is giving the debate to Romney - it's not a "debate", it's a friggin' catwalk. Romney looked better than Obama on the catwalk - he lied, he dissembled, and he was clueless, but he looked better and that, apparently, was all that mattered.


d2tq98mqfjyz2l.cloudfront.net

badaboom: But I was told Obama was the greatest orator of our time.


That's because you read crappy partisan sources instead of thinking for yourself.

Personally, I don't give a fark if Romney brought an encyclopedia to the debate. Because even if he did have a cheat sheet, he'd find it almost impossible to use. Just trying to figure out how to read his notes and still pay attention to what's going on around him would be harder than winging it.
 
2012-10-05 07:44:31 PM

chatikh: I don't understand why all the media is saying Romney won the debate. He made lots and lots of claims, but I didn't believe any of it because he couldn't answer the simple question, "How?" Saying you can magically fix the economy but not answering how you're going to magically fix the economy isn't winning. Because I really think he either doesn't know how or he is completely lying about it.


Obviously, Mormon Magic Underwear has super-secret powers we non-Mormons aren't privy to, like fixing the economy and making the Osmonds popular.

lennavan: LATER IN THE DEBATE MITT ROMNEY SNIFFED HIS CHEATING NOTES HOLY CRAP THIS IS A MAJOR ISSUE THAT DESERVES ALL OF OUR ATTENTION


Actually I think he was sniffing a pair of Ann's magic underwear.

Who said they're not supposed to bring notes?
 
2012-10-05 08:26:43 PM
Notes or not. I can't stand the way he talks. It's like a bad nightmare from my childhood. If you aren't Mormon or have never been to a Mormon church you might not catch it. But he speaks with a smug cadence that is unmistakably they way Mormon authorities speak. It's like listening to what they call General Conference. Bishop Romney isn't running for President, he's running to get a place in the general authorities. (look it up)
/he was a Mormon Bishop so he's still Bishop Romney to a lot of people

If anything it would have been index cards with specific points wrapped in a hanky. Do I think he did that? .... I wouldn't put it past him at all. Am I saying he did that? No. The cards would be nothing but his zingers, stats and talking points. Do I care? Well.... I wouldn't like the integrity of the horse and pony show to be breached any more than it already is. Does my opinion matter? Not in the least...

kimwim: AdolfOliverPanties: Can't see the vid at work, so I can't comment on what it shows.

Do I think Romney is above cheating? No.

Besides, he's told so many lies, he probably needs notes to keep them all straight.

Screen shot for you from Daily Kos' thread


I'm not really one to defend R'money, but that "paper" looks too oddly-shaped to actually be paper. Of course, it's difficult to tell with that pic. Also, it makes no sense to have a handkerchief on your podium. Did he ever use it? I don't remember seeing him mop his forehead or anything.

So...I donno. Wouldn't put cheating past him, though....

nyseattitude: So everyone agrees the index cards were in the hanky and the use of the hanky was just for show. Good to know.


No, it was just a hanky. He used it to spit out the bone conduction mic at the end to hide it.
 
2012-10-05 09:22:48 PM
I'm pretty sure Romney's Handkerchief is the opposite of Occam's Razor. The most nonsensical, convoluted, farking stupid explanation is likely the correct one on the internet.
 
2012-10-05 09:24:34 PM
I image that place was wired up better than a Vegas Casino with video and audio, if he attempted to place notes on the table, I imagine we would have heard about this through more legitimate sources than speculation and blurry pictures which could showing anything from notes to Casper the Friendly Ghost...
 
2012-10-05 09:26:38 PM
That really was a handkerchief Romney pulls out of his pocket. But before the debate Romney rubbed it all over his crotch. When Romney wiped his nose with it, he was really smelling his crotch, thereby giving himself somewhat of a second wind. Duh. This isn't difficult, sheeple.
 
2012-10-05 09:58:54 PM
Doesn't matter what Romney says or does, I don't feel like being in a misogynist, homophobic, Christian theocratic, rich man's paradise that starts World War III on behalf of Israel.

Why do people want this so badly?
 
2012-10-05 10:16:27 PM
why would you put a handkerchief on the table before you need to use it? has Mitt ever made a speech in which he dropped a handkerchief on the podium before he began to speak? Why did he use the handkerchief?

It makes a lot of sense that his notes were concealed inside the handkerchief, and that his ostentatious use of the handkerchief was a very good alibi.

As for those who suggest why would he do this if he might get caught, the answer is that he didn't get caught, he got away with it because it was a real smooth cheat.

It's pretty obvious he smuggled notes, and I give props to Mitt on how he did it. It's a smooth cheat and in my book, if you don't get caught, then I won't accuse you of anything. Well played Mitt.

Let's see if Mitt tries to run the same one again. In my experience cheats will continue running the same cheat if it worked once before.

And it's not like Mitt needs notes, but cheaters get a certain thrill in breaking the rules, I don't pretend to understand, but I know they can't help themselves from doing it. Mitt won the debate fair and square, and he may or may have not cheated, but if he did cheat, it was done smooth the way you are supposed to do it.

As far as lectern/podium goes, I guess with language, appeal to popularity really does rule the day. Soon, loose will be listed as an alternate spelling for lose. Someone had better edit Wikipedia.

1. A common error among speakers is the mistake of referring to the lectern as a "podium". The podium is in fact the raised platform upon which both the speaker and the lectern are standing.

Merriam-Webster, however, bows to lecterns and podiums as being synonymous in their definition as popularly confused.[6]

Don't know if it has been said, but, in the first video I watched, it looked like something heavier than a handkerchief, yet it appeared to be white and sort-of fluffy. I think that he indeed brought a stack of SMALL index cards wrapped inside of a handkerchief. Yes. He did use a hanky, clearly... But, whatever he threw up on the podium landed like it had WEIGHT to it. Look at the velocity and trajectory of the object.

Pandering to the lowest common denominator of his base.
Romney is not worried about the folks who check facts.
He knows they will never vote for him. Just another buncha folks that don't matter.

I think he may have said that in Derper Code.

Anyway, this is just round 1 of a 3 round cage match that makes WWF look legitimate.
We got siignature moves, but no real tussel. Both tools in character and showing "no strings on me".
I am waiting for one of them to claim they alone can put chicken in every pot.

Next, chairs, tables, maybe ladders.

Seriously, the whole thing was a complete affront to civilized communication. Both involved consistently exceeded their time allotments, interrupted each other, spoke about the intents of the other directly, and crooned on about "God bless our troops" and "think of the children" in transparently emotional distraction. Also, there's no such thing as winning a debate. It's not football. A debate has a result, not a victor.

Not entirely. The debater with the argument that results in a technically convincing result can be the winner. The result, of course, being a logical argument that wins on its merits. I won the Dred Scott v. Sandford case, unfortunately having to argue the evil side, in an international forensics championship. I won it on the same technicalities that the real one succeeded in using, despite the fact that it was 1993 and we were all addicted to hackeysacks and condoms. It was truly a defeat of my own principles and--to the professor's delight--a negative against her verbal hypothesis (which was the opposite of her real hypothesis).

Obama won that debate on technicality, on fact., despite the fact that he gratuitously coated it with folksy bullsh*t. Jim Lehrer did not moderate a debate. He was the stuttering "other guy" who lives at the dive bar and inserts himself into arguments. There is absolutely nothing that resembles a debate in this past debate, the podiums, time limits, and three people and an audience present being the exception.

Dude, you're claiming Mitt Romney was stupid enough to bring in a cheat sheet, blatantly breaking the debate rules in front of hundreds of onlookers, a moderator, President Obama, the Democrat advisors, multiple video cameras and millions of viewers on TV. You think within the first 11 seconds, he farked up by just nonchalantly tossing it on his podium and later in the debate, wiped his face... with his cheat sheet. This is what you actually believe.

Do you think that it`s important to not show paper from your pocket? how to work this... I know! Put it in a hankie!

without being there, there is no way to prove either way.

You sound exactly like the birthers.

Showing a birth certificate does not prove anything, it could be photoshopped. Showing a long form birth certificate does not prove anything, it could be fabricated. Without having actually been there in the room, there is no way to prove whether or not Obama was born in Kenya or the U.S.

Via Infinito: ManateeGag: Via Infinito: Quasar: Is this like how Bush (or was it McCain) must have had an earpiece?

No this is more straight forward. He clearly took paper out of his pocket and put it on the podium.

There's another video that shows him going back to the podium later and collecting all his papers before he leaves.
Not that it's particularly suspicious, but we can't leave our crib notes on the podium, now can we?

that's far from conclusive. the paper he picked up at the end looked a lot larger then what he pulled out in the beginning.

That's because he took ALL the papers from the podium.


Yeah, I don't think that follow-up video reveals anything provable either. And it's more than a bit jerky for C-SPAN to title it "Mitt Cheat." When a proper authority formally declares it so, then fine; until then, no.

Why would Romney put a handkerchief on the podium? Why not just keep it in his pocket? Is he expecting some sort of snot-emergency wherein he'll need to save time?

Holy fark who cares why he put it on a podium versus kept it in his pocket. Do you? Are you seriously concerned about the location of Mitt Romney's handkerchief?

You don't think it's seriously weird that Romney put a handkerchief on the podium before the debate? Who does that?

OH SH*T it's part of his programming!


Well, if it was a hanky, then that puts the kibosh on this entire story and thread -- it's a non-issue. Hankies are allowed, so far as I know. And no, I don't think it's "seriously weird," either, if he did. What kind of insanely anal-retentive (or, alternately, hygienically fallow) upbringing did you have? Just because some does something that seems unusual to you doesn't make it "seriously weird." I think running for POTUS is seriously weird, but I'm not judging either of them for that, either.

To accuse Romney of lying is to presuppose that he knows what the actual facts are to begin with. I'm not sure I'm ready to give him that much credit. I rather see him as a rather awkward but ambitious man, who's well-meaning and decent at heart but also very self-serving, who lives a very insular existence and genuinely likes other human beings but honestly has no farking clue how most people really live, and why a lot of his notions about them are not useful and are likely actually potentially harmful to them. It's kind of sad. There's a place in this world where he can do very good things, but I don't believe this is it.

To be completely fair, the man could barely speak English at all. I actually felt kind of sorry for him (though not for the stooges who put him up to it in the first place, which seemed cruel to me later on). I definitely got the sense that he was in way over his head, and really did need every possible advantage he could get just to seem even vaguely competent (which, let's be frank, was about as good as he ever got). If he was wired and got help, that's surely cheating, and yes, it's douchy, but on the other hand, this is Dubya we're talking about, and it kept him from *completely* embarrassing us, I'm actually glad for it. I'm just glad it's over now, and I bet he is, too.

I rather see him as a rather awkward but ambitious man, who's well-meaning and decent at heart but also very self-serving, who lives a very insular existence and genuinely likes other human beings but honestly has no farking clue how most people really live, and why a lot of his notions about them are not useful and are likely actually potentially harmful to them. It's kind of sad. There's a place in this world where he can do very good things, but I don't believe this is it.


If you know the numbers are all cooked lies anyway, it is hard to pretend that the details matter.
Just another bunch of stuff(like people) Romney does not understand nor worry his little head over.

His manner is obvious. He is getting impatient with the fools not seeing his light.
He'll melt down soon, just wait.

lennavan: PsiChick: Levannan, are you going to do anything here besides see how many variations you can work in of calling me stupid

Dude, you're claiming Mitt Romney was stupid enough to bring in a cheat sheet, blatantly breaking the debate rules in front of hundreds of onlookers, a moderator, President Obama, the Democrat advisors, multiple video cameras and millions of viewers on TV. You think within the first 11 seconds, he farked up by just nonchalantly tossing it on his podium and later in the debate, wiped his face... with his cheat sheet. This is what you actually believe.

So no, I cannot imagine anything else to do in this thread than reiterate multiple variations of how farking dumb you really are.


No, that's you. I personally think that a) he was an idiot and tried to bring some form of notes AND a hanky, or b) has the world's weirdest-looking hanky and managed to look like he was cheating without even trying.

Like I said, I don't care which it is. I find the entire thing amusing, because it is yet more classic Romney foot-in-mouth syndrome. Which may say many things about how easily amused I am, but whatever.
