and he wants contraception for everybody!

what do freepers think of that?

better yet, what do they think of his calling out the "reagan recession?" that's heresy, no?

Romney says he will create 4-12 million jobs, but in the debate last night he blurted out: "Government doesn't create jobs!"

Seriously, what else does he need to say, then restate the opposite of to get you to vote for him? He'd vote for you, why won't you vote for him?

HST's Dead Carcass: Romney says he will create 4-12 million jobs, but in the debate last night he blurted out: "Government doesn't create jobs!"


he also said, "i've spent my life in the private sector," and then a couple of minutes later, "as governor of massachusetts..."

he's a liar. a pathological liar. and when you lie so much, it's difficult to keep them in order.

Finally. A candidate every American can call their own. He's been a handicapped unionist minority farmer. He's been a right-wing, pro-choice, born-again Southern elderly protectionist pacifist. He's been a redneck Northern liberal ethnic pro-life Jewish fixed-income no-nukes gun nut. And he's been a woman named Frieda.

Well, he said that last night. Today he's back in non-debate mode, so all those things aren't currently true.

I have always wondered about the doublethink that seems common in the GOP.

If government doesn't create jobs and we have a market economy instead of a Soviet style command economy, then why does the president get the credit or blame for the economy? He doesn't actually control it or anything. I can see exceptional circumstances like the New Deal or Wall-St taking down the world economy due to lack of regulation, but generally no.

tin_man: What the hell is there not to love about Mexicans?


That's a very good question, and thank you for that. Now, the last question, Mr. Obama said something that made me ook bad, so I am going to go back to that question and ignore this one.

I'd say it was a win for Obama, but in the way that the faster of two people fleeing a bear counts as a win.

Romney says that Obamacare will hurt our economy because small business don't want to hire due to its regulations. OK. But then he says Massachusett's a model for all states to follow which would have the same regulations. DERP!

My company has 13 employees. We all currently have Aflac. With Obamacare ramping up, they're bringing in representatives from insurance companies over the next few weeks to get us health insurance. We'll pose questions, get their sales pitch, then they'll get back to our company with the cost, and the Operations Manager (an owner of the company) will make the determination on which company we take based on our healthcare needs and cost to the company and employees.

It was never at the top of their list of things to do, but something they've always wanted to do, so we're getting it done. We're also redoing our retirement funds next month. Does this cost our company more overhead for employees? Most definitely, but each of the owners say: If you have good employees, you invest in them to keep them. They don't see it as expenditures, they see it as competing with the market to hold on to talent.

Right?

Their food is delicious, their music and culture vibrant, and you go in one of their bars and they will not only buy you drinks all night long, they'll drink you under the table.

Sure, their friends may steal the tires off your car in the meantime, but nobody's perfect.

Mitt again showed that he is a pompous bloviator, but I do have to admit that he is also a soulless, heartless amoral douchebag who only cares about the fattening of the wallets of himself and his masters.

Well, some of them have a sneaky sense of humor. If you ask certain abuelas if a particular salsa is "gringo-friendly", they will always tell you it's not too caliente, regardless of the actual spice level.

They tend to regard the ensuing spectacle as hilarious, even as they offer you a cold cerveza to put out the fire in your mouth.

I'm not a right winger, but yeah... pretty much this.  If Hillary won the presidency, they'd want her out because "she's a woman".  If a white male democrat was present... they'd find something.
 
And yep, a lot of the left-wingers do the same. 
 
"Wrong team" pretty much sums up politics.

I do the same thing to people, and my Mom is from Norway. You'd think I'd be a big ol' pansy about things any stronger than a tiny touch of black pepper, just like my Mom, but growing up in Los Angeles was apparently better for me than I thought. The thing is, to me a lot of the stuff is not hot at all. Yes, it is hilarious when I see other people crying and choking over what I consider just a tiny little bit of hot sauce.

My taste buds and Spanglish have both improved since I first got here (San Antonio). And it's amazing how far making an effort with the language goes with bilingual people. A simple "como se dice (how do you say)" can change the entire tone of a conversation.

I toooold you conservatives would complain he wasn't conservative enough.

This is almost funny, on this very site people swore that the conservatives would be furious over Romney in the first debate, when they couldn't have been happier with the things he said. I don't see anyone running around trying to say conservatives would be unhappy with the things Romney said last night.

You really don't understand conservatives at all.

I'm also curious the cognitive dissonance that must be involved in watching Mitt only gain traction in the polls by swinging far left when it's dogma within the party that the only reason a GOP candidate could ever lose an election is if they weren't conservative enough.

After the 9/11 attacks even leftists rallied around W, his approval ratings were like 90%. Right after the Libya attacks the right wing used it as a springboard to create a conspiracy theory that attacks and blames the president. There's your both sides are bad.

What? I thought Romney is for tax cuts for job creators, because that's how you create jobs.

That's why I want to bring down the tax rates on small employers, big employers, so they want to be here. Canada's tax rate on companies is now 15 percent. Ours is 35 percent. So if you're starting a business, where would you rather start it? We have to be competitive if we're going to create more jobs here.

When Bush II got elected, I was disappointed, but I told myself, "it won't be so bad, he says he wants to be the education president. He talks as if he is reasonably moderate". When Afganistan was invaded, I thought. "Well, that is where the attacks came from, and we have a right to retaliate.". Then when Iraq was invaded I wanted him out on his ear.

Watching Romney trying to swing to the center is like watching Roy Batty in "Blade Runner" going to Tyrell to increase his lifespan:

i78.photobucket.com

Tyrell: The facts of life... to make a radical alteration in the evolvement of an American political party is fatal. A coding sequence cannot be revised once it's been established.
Mitt Batty: Why not?
Tyrell: Because by the second mid-term of incubation, any cells that have undergone TEA Party reversion mutation give rise to revertant colonies, like rats leaving a sinking ship; then the ship... sinks.
Mitt Batty: What about EMS-3 Moderate recombination?
Tyrell: We've already tried it - Huntsman, Collins, Snowe, Brown......; it created a virus so lethal the subject was dead before it even left the table.
Mitt Batty: Then a RINO repressor protein that would block the operating cells.
Tyrell: Wouldn't obstruct replication; but it does give rise to an error in replication, so that the newly formed DNA strand carries with it a TEA Party mutation - and you've got a virus again... but this, all of this is academic. You were made as well as we could make you.
Mitt Batty: But not to last.
Tyrell: The light that burns twice as bright burns for half as long - and you have burned so very, very brightly, Mitt. Look at you: you're the Prodigal Son; you're quite a prize!
Mitt Batty: I've done... questionable things at Bain Capital.
Tyrell: Also extraordinary things; revel in your time.
Mitt Batty: Nothing the God of Politics wouldn't let you into heaven for.
