I've said it before, and I'll say it again: if Mitt Romney was any more of a tool he'd have CRAFTSMAN stamped on his ass

That doesn't matter.

Romney doesn't rely on facts or even previous things he himself has said.

His campaign manager has told him "just get it all out there, true or not. Say whatever the hell you want."

The Great EZE: Ayn Rand's Social Worker: Picking Vilsack as Ag Secretary instead of Michal Pollan might be my least favorite thing Obama did in the past 4 years. Its either that or NDAA. Both pretty short sighted and revealing of a deeper lack of commitment to his stated values.

/might just vote Stein or Johnson because of it
//but only because I'm in California
///Mitt is so, so much worse...

Just wondering: how does one sit on the fence between Jill Stein and Gary Johnson? I don't know a LOT about them but aren't they kinda...different?

If the only issue you care about is "will they legalize pot?" the two are pretty similar. Some people are "single issue" voters, whether it's the abortion nuts, the pot smokers, the "OMG Taxes!" morans, or the people who want to blow up the middle east because it's full of brown people who call their god by a weird name, some people only care about one thing. If the only thing you care about is smoking pot, there's not much difference between Johnson and Stein.

(If you actually care about making the world a better place, there is a huge difference, but if your vote hinges on "who will let me get baked, watch TV and eat Doritos?" then Stein and Johnson are pretty much equal.)

*ahem* That's not so hard to rationalize.

Even the polls skewed to oversample liberals are showing the 0bama's toast.

Even the ultra-liberal Tax Policy Center has to admit that 0bama's policies are bad for America's farmers.

You know 0bama's terribad when even the commie think tanks and polling outfits can't mask the stench any longer! This is bad news... for 0bama!

Wait, what is there to attack of farm policy beyond "We're too heavy on corn, meat, dairy subsidies, and that doesn't align with healthy eating policy we're trying to pursue"

In a press release today, the Romney campaign cites an article that ran in The Hill prominently citing the non-partisan think tank the Tax Policy Center to hit President Obama on how his policies have effected farmers.

Nadie_AZ: He's moving to the center as fast as he can.

He'll be more liberal than FDR or Teddy by the end of the election cycle.

He'd be more liberal than CARTER if that's what it took.
