Doesn't matter, he's not getting elected.

Joe Biden?

Well, he'd certainly drive ME to drink.

He had a beer but has never had alcohol? He has the razor sharp grasp of reality that I associate with Republicans.

I'd find that very hard to believe.

Were we ready for Rutherford B Hayes or Abraham Lincoln?
 
2012-10-05 05:55:13 PM
yes because prior alcohol use is an important barometer when judging who will be the PRESIDENT...

AdolfOliverPanties: Were we ready for Rutherford B Hayes or Abraham Lincoln?


I'm no history buff, but I believe there were a few people who took Lincoln's presidency rather poorly.

Not sure about Hayes though.

Some people don't need to drink to be enormous assholes
 
2012-10-05 06:09:49 PM
That was painfully unfunny, and his cutesy occupation listing of songwriter and commercial litigator makes it that much worse.
 
2012-10-05 06:12:33 PM
I feel bad for Mitt... That's his real personality.
 
2012-10-05 06:13:50 PM
So the crazy people were all worried Obama was a super secret Muslim would would take away their bacon and alcohol but they don't worry about Romney, who actually IS from a fruitbat religion which didn't even recognize black people as people until the 80s???

That's true. Even Southern Baptists let black people sit in slave balconies before emancipation.

"Slave balconies" is an odd term. It's like "terror gazebo".

Marcus Aurelius: AbbeySomeone: He looks like he'd be a mean drunk.

He'd be the farker who let everyone by a round and fark off when it was his turn. When cornered, he would by the round reluctantly and fark the waitress on the tip.
 
2012-10-05 06:51:10 PM
Do I believe Mitt Romney has never tasted alcohol?

No. I've known far to many Mormons that drink when they can get away with it, and with how rich Mitt is, he can get away with nearly everything.

//Except winning the White House...
 
2012-10-05 06:55:29 PM
Romney has outsourced his drinking to cheap, Chinese labor.

He would also eat all the appetizers,and dispute his share of the bill because he didn't order them.

I don't have a problem with the Mormon thing, one religion is not that much different than any other. The problem I have with Romney is the whole lying/asshole thing.
 
2012-10-05 07:08:20 PM
Even for the Fark Politics Tab, or as sane people call it "Ewwww.", this is some retarded trolling of a headline.

Which is especially gross considering how much spit he's been consuming from being rude to the wait staff and sending food back to the chef

So basically he's my asshole brother-in-law who is also very rich (~$10M ballpark that is). At a party at a restaurant when he had a good job and I was only 15 years old. He orders a very expensive bottle of wine (his treat he explains to everyone) and proceeds to drink most of it. When the bill comes, he suggests dividing it equally and I end up paying about twice what I planned. 15 farking years old. No wonder he's so farking rich today.

FTFA: And if anyone reminds us of the terrible things this country has done in its history, we say "hey, is that a euro on the ground?" and when they bend over to see, we fart right in their faces. Because we are Americans and often we are drunk.

Do you know who else we farted on right in their face?

Given how hot it could get upstairs in a Southern building in Summer....perhaps "melting pot" would be most appropo.

Meh.

I just hope, if he is elected, he knows how to blow off steam in a way that is healthy. Otherwise he'll be wound up tighter than a bottle of Coke with a dozen mentos inside. A high pressure problem could set him off in all the wrong directions.

Obviously I have no problem with his active religious faith, as long as he doesn't try to make anyone else subscribe to it (I don't care that he missionized to the French and crapped in a pail while in France either). Now, there are very few quotes I have in permanent memory to be rotated into general usage. However, this is one of them--one of my favorites to be exact. I find it most applicable in regards to Gov. Romney in this case:

"I haven't a particle of confidence in a man who has no redeeming petty vices."

--Mark Twain ("The Moral Statistician," 1893)
 
2012-10-05 07:55:38 PM
America is a country founded on a principle: that we are the best. And if anyone asks us, "the best at what?" we spit at those people.


OK, that's just funny right there

I have it on good authority that someone was caught and eaten by a gazebo once.

I wondered if his lack of drinking was going to come up at some point. He claimed to have tried a couple drinks in his youth, decided he did not like the taste and never went back.
Fine, personal choice. I am certainly not going to applaud him for it. I did the same thing with Brussels Sprouts and I don't expect anybody to be proud of me for it.

I actually have a lot more respect for Bush (the second), who reportedly was an alcoholic, managed to break the cycle and then never drank again.
 
2012-10-05 08:20:34 PM
Nope.

I quite agree. If there isn't something at least mildly wrong with you, there is something *majorly* wrong with you.

He's going to take away our beer and our right to work on Sundays! This means no more football!

We need to FW FW FW this!

Bush was a drunk so it kinda balances out.
 
2012-10-05 08:33:12 PM
Forgive me if I remember incorrectly, but wasn't one of Bush's big selling points that he was "the kind of guy I'd have a beer with?" Why suddenly is that no longer valid metric to judge a President by?
 
2012-10-05 08:34:35 PM
if Mitt Romney was a democrat the question would be "Is America ready for a Cultist president?"

Yeah, but it turns out the pretzels were more dangerous to him than the beer ever was.

You need to try brussels sprouts again. Cut out their stems, fry them in butter, oil, and garlic.

Son, never trust a man who doesn't drink because he's probably a self-righteous sort, a man who thinks he knows right from wrong all the time. Some of them are good men, but in the name of goodness, they cause most of the suffering in the world. They're the judges, the meddlers. And, son, never trust a man who drinks but refuses to get drunk. They're usually afraid of something deep down inside, either that they're a coward or a fool or mean and violent. You can't trust a man who's afraid of himself. But sometimes, son, you can trust a man who occasionally kneels before a toilet. The chances are that he is learning something about humility and his natural human foolishness, about how to survive himself. It's damned hard for a man to take himself too seriously when he's heaving his guts into a dirty toilet bowl.
