Delay: FlashHarry: it's pretty easy for them to control the message: vote for "not the black guy".

Well, it's weird that Romney's own spokesperson does more to expose Romney's BS than the media.


It's actually a pattern, and it seems to be a deliberate tactic.

Romney's campaign has been trying to play both sides of controversial issues by having the candidate say one thing in public -- the mainstream view -- only to have his campaign walk the statement back almost immediately. That way the low information mainstream voters hear what they want to hear and get on with life. When the base complains about his position, the campaign can say he "misspoke" and the record has been corrected. But most voters don't know about the walk-back.

I've noticed it happens all the time; far too often to be simple error or ineptitude.

I *despise* theocracies. And the GOP (at the local/state and federal level) is pushing a 'biblical' form of government. not only are they theocrats but they're authoritarians as well, which is basically super sizing the horribleness of the whole situation. the libertarians - as much as I like them - seem to be just fine with authoritarian style government...just as long as we're being crushed by corporations and not the Fedgov. while I have my issues with the Democrats....out of all my choices, they are the lesser of many evils.

No, you probably get a lecture on the difference between being in favor of abortions generally and being in favor of not telling women what to do. Meanwhile, Mitt Romney says he's not going to support anti-abortion legislation, and then his campaign corrects him: he will, he just forgot that he will.

The long and short of it: you're both buffoons.

You're not the only one who thinks that:

But none could doubt the movement's swagger when Norquist fine-tuned his newest talking point about Mitt Romney. He predicted that the leadership of the conservative movement for the next 20 years will emanate from Congress, not the White House (a likely development for which Democrats seem unprepared).

"We're not auditioning for someone to tell us what to do," he declared. "We know what to do. We just need a president who can sign the legislation that the Republican House and Senate pass. ... We don't need someone to think. ... We need someone who knows how to hold a pen."

today, we're out of recession, we've gained private-sector jobs for 32 straight months, and the dow is at 13,000.

bhcompy: Nuuu: bhcompy: There is nothing contradictory about these statements. Appointing a judge or getting rid of funding is not legislation. He's just speaking politician speak in a very literal way, so no one can claim he lied.

Getting rid of funding is legislation. All discretionary funding goes through appropriation bills that have to undergo the normal legislative process to become laws, i.e., legislation.

Not necessarily. An executive order could suffice


That's highly doubtful. You can't just write "I hereby defund Planned Parenthood" and have it be true, even as an executive order. Congress controls the purse strings by design and the president can't simply overrule their funding decisions. You may think that the President's executive powers are unlimited given Obama's recent high profile decision to not enforce certain immigration laws under certain circumstances, but everyone agrees that even that pushes the bounds of what the executive can unilaterally do, and what you're proposing is even more extreme.

Second, even Congress can't simply call out a single organization and declare them defunded. That's unconstitutional. Planned Parenthood gets its federal money from grants and programs that it qualifies for. To "defund" them you need rework the application criteria for those grants and programs so that Planned Parenthood no longer qualifies, or simply end those programs entirely. Again, these are things you can't accomplish by executive order. You need the legislative branch.

This is the second time since the Republican convention that Romney and his campaign have taken diametrically opposed positions on abortion in the same farking day and nobody seems to give a shiat. Unbelievable

I think he knows damn well what he intends to do; His primary goal is to reduce or eliminate cap gains taxes so he and his heirs can live basically tax-free (until another administration realizes they need the money and put the tax back)


You left out:

1 War with Iran so he and his buddies can make hundreds of billions off the blood of other people's sons and daughters

2. Privatize Social Security--just like George Bush tried to do so, during the next financial meltdown created by lack of enforcement, trillions will be transferred to the rich.

3. Get rid of PBS so Frontline can't make anymore critical documentaries.

There's so much more but I have a headache just thinking about the fact that the same people who re-eclected Bush Cheney will be voting again.

You mean like Obama on Gitmo, Foreign policy, Detention, the Drug War, and gay marriage?

It's all fine and good to bring up examples of Obama's stances changing over time. But can you tell me what Mitt Romney's position is on abortion right now? It's one thing to change your mind. But the Romney campaign cannot even explain what his state of mind is. They are attempting to portray him as holding mutually exclusive views, in the hopes that everyone will see something they like.


Gitmo is an odd place to draw a line. Gitmo can't closed any time soon. Simply can't because many of the folks cannot be put into our justice system now. Chains of evidence, chains of custody, it's all messed up because of the corners cut how folks were captured and detained. They go into our justice system, they will have to be released immediately. That is the legacy of the Bush years, a prison full of folks we can't legally hold here, and who cannot now be released because they will be a beacon for the very folks we're trying to combat. Had we treated terrorism as a law enforcement matter, and NOT cut corners or ignored standing laws, we might have gotten them tried and convicted, but given their treatment and how they were detained, they are in a legal Limbo right now. Plain and simple. Obama got left with the bag on this one, and folks are peeing themselves over the few folks we could try, because they are political cowards who don't want the boogeymen in their backyards.

The Drug War? That's a odd thing, considering that the Executive is sort of forced to uphold the laws of the land. Even the ones he doesn't like. It would be nice if folks didn't pee themselves with the thought of legalization of pot, but that's what we are left with, and so long as that is the law, then we are sort of stuck with it.

Marriage equality? It's time for us to actually fulfill the promise of equality under the law, and actually uphold religious freedom. It's well past time, and this former Republican fully favors marriage equality, on Constitutional grounds--especially that pesky freedom of religion and equality under the law. None of my damn business what consenting adults do in their own homes and in their own churches.

That is a bit different than Romney speaking out of both sides of his mouth, at the same damn time. The man has all the political backbone of an octopus...

Maybe it's because there actually IS a difference between supporting a woman's right to have an abortion and planning to actually have an abortion?

For starters, the second group, by definition, consists entirely of pregnant women -- despite Fox News' claims to the contrary, it's impossible to have an abortion when you're not pregnant for much the same reason women can't get vasectomies or people with both legs amputated above the knee cannot get ACL surgery.

Then there's the fact that if you replace "have an abortion" with anything else at all, it will be much easier for you to see that not everyone who supports a right has plans to exercise that right. For example, I support your right to have a three-way with a pair of trailer-park fatties who can't leave their homes without the help of a forklift, even though I have no plans to do so myself.

I just find it hilarious how Democrats make such a huge deal out of "flip-flopping", as they call it. I have never once heard a Republican call any Democratic candidate a flip-flopper, because Republicans do not brand their opponents and Republicans prefer to debate the issues. Republicans do not resort to name-calling, you stupid liberals. Deal with it. Mitchell "Thaddeus" Romney is more intelligent than any of you, and it shouldn't be surprising that when he speaks, that philosophers, academics, experts, and the common man all come together to determine what Romney has actually said. From there, people find multiple interpretations. And from there, people claim he has given many different positions on the same issue. "Misinterpretation of ideas" is not "Romney took multiple positions on the same issue". The end. Go home. Taxbongo lost the election. Stop being jealous that Romney is smarter than you.

And the other part of that comment is, if Obama can't be arsed to confront a mormon liar on TV and act like he wants the job, the hell with him. Seriously. The tea baggers should have been stomped on TV every week in 09, by Obama, the theoretical leader of the free world. Instead he is letting those senile plasterbrained punks have the floor and conceding points left and right in the name of "bipartisan cooperation."

Like a cowboy once said, you don't negotiate with terrorists. I consider tea baggers our modern taliban. They should be confronted as the liars they are, they should be shouted out of their own party and relegated back to the cult status they had. But little by little the Republicans have been cultivating these guys, and now we have the Reagan Youth all grown up in the form of Paul Ryan, who is the child of government entitlement yet wants to pull the rug out from everyone else that came after him.

I would like if Obama grew a pair and used his epic speaking skills to fight more like Dean or Clinton or Rendell, instead of being more like a younger Harry Reid.

I am comfortable with America screwing itself if thats what America wants. I lived through this once already with Reagan. Biggest sack of lying phony fake crap around, yet America ate it up. Wasn't morning in america where I grew up. Far from it.

So you guys get out the vote for Obama, we'll be better off if he wins, but ... America needs to learn to quit electing liars, if putting a mormon cultist liar into office is how it learned that finally, I'm fine with it. The country's too big to fail. Doncha know.

Weaver is a case study in what has happened to the GOP.

From ardent right winger to Obama supporter in just 6 years.


have I mentioned how much I hate a theocratic form of government? Because I *really* hate that sort of thing.

Weaver95: what_now: Weaver95: Romney also forced me to register Democrat AND go volunteer for the Obama campaign.

Oh Weaves. I remember when I had you farkied as "fascist".

I *despise* theocracies. And the GOP (at the local/state and federal level) is pushing a 'biblical' form of government. not only are they theocrats but they're authoritarians as well, which is basically super sizing the horribleness of the whole situation. the libertarians - as much as I like them - seem to be just fine with authoritarian style government...just as long as we're being crushed by corporations and not the Fedgov. while I have my issues with the Democrats....out of all my choices, they are the lesser of many evils.


I'm sorry your party abandoned you, dude. But I'm glad to have you in my corner. :)

Why would the media want to expose any of Romney's lying or flip flopping?

Romney is their candidate. Most media are mid-six, or 7 figures incomes.

In other words, the 1%.

Mugato: .... although I may have heard one guy who obviously knows nothing about what Romney did as a businessman say that because he's a successful businessman he'd make a good President but that's all


Every time I hear "The President is CEO of the world's most powerful ________," I want to fly into a murderous, Constitutionally-inspired rage.

Weaver95: y'know...if Romney flipped this quick on abortion - what makes anyone believe that he'll stay strong on the economy? or foreign policy? or anything else for that matter? the guy is either a lying bottom feeder or he's just got no spine. either way he's not a good fit for the job of President.

"There's no legislation with regards to abortion that I'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda," the Republican presidential nominee told The Des Moines Register in an interview.

I'm reminded of Clevinger's interrogation in Catch 22 and want to ask Romney if there is any legislation with regards to abortion that he's not familiar with that would become part of his agenda.

I know the corporate media wanted to make the election closer to boost ratings but if they keep helping Mitt lie they'll have elected him president.

serial_crusher: shrug. Every time I use the phrase "pro-abortion" in a thread, I get a slew of herpaderp about how there's a difference between people who support your right to have an abortion, and those who plan on having one themselves.


What does that have to do with what Romney said? Are you suggesting he thinks its morally wrong, but also thinks abortion should be a legal alternative for those who want it?

It would be so refreshing if they just admitted it. "We want him over Obama so we're OK with him lying and cheating to do it."

During the debate Romney claimed that "half" of the green firms the stimulus invested in "have gone out of business" and noted that "a number of them happened to be owned by people who were contributors to your campaigns. I had a friend who said you don't just pick the winners and losers, you pick the losers, all right?"

Actual number: less than 1% says Michael Grunwald.

WhiskeyBender: Has a comet passed close to earth? Something is strange because I've never seen a politician say one thing that sides with a group of people, then take the other side with another group. Never!


I've never seen one do it on literally every single issue like Romney has.
