max_pooper: No, Obama won 8 of the 10 wealthiest counties in this country. Not all wealthy people are selfish, poor hating dick bags, just the ones that vote Republican.
Mcavity: Annnnd THIS is why you loose./ I'm beginning to think the "R" stands for retarded...
Hydra: Obama promised a bunch of free stuff if you voted for him. Political bribery or not, call it what you will, but that's what he did. It's been an inherent flaw in democracies for politicians to promise to give away to the masses more free stuff (which must, of course, first be taken from someone else in the population - a minority which everyone can scapegoat and no one will care about, like rich people).Every one of you people commenting in this thread enjoy a standard of living your ancestors barely 100 years ago could ever dream of, yet you cry on and on about how the rich are fleecing you when (excluding rent seekers - a.k.a. political cronies who corrupt the market through government intervention to extract economic rents - i.e. most of Obama's wealthy backers) you can only become rich in the private sector by producing the best good or providing the best service for the lowest cost to make consumers (i.e. all of us) better off. Mutually beneficial exchange happens all the time in a market economy, and thieves rarely ever last long enough to become massively wealthy (without the help of government cronies, of course). Have any of you ever read Adam Smith?/mercantilists, the lot of youmax_pooper: No, Obama won 8 of the 10 wealthiest counties in this country. Not all wealthy people are selfish, poor hating dick bags, just the ones that vote Republican.Curious - which counties? Without looking them up, I'm assuming the ones around Palo Alto, San Francisco, Detroit, New York City, Washington DC, Boston, and other heavily blue areas where groupthink abounds? Some of the richest counties are the ones surrounding DC alone - sounds to me like they were a bunch of cronies who got rich by buying off the right people to give themselves perks. Go ahead and keep trying to draw your tenuous correlations to support your broadbrushing statement, and keep rooting for your political football team, though. Rich people who vote for Obama are OBVIOUSLY all unselfish while r ...
hubcity: So the guy who's working, paying his fair share, but only making $35k a year, is a leech. Got it. I'll update the Urban Dictionary.
HST's Dead Carcass: Romney circa 11/12: The minorities were bribed to vote for Obama!
CPennypacker: Look at this. Look at this and laugh.
theknuckler_33: It's really amusing seeing conservatives behaving as if only conservatives pay taxes.
Hydra: CPennypacker: Look at this. Look at this and laugh.There's nothing in that statement that's incorrect.
skinink: I'm okay with his assumption, if it means the GOP also believes it which will cause them to continuously lose Elections.
sprawl15: What a ballgargling shiatcandidate.
Blathering Idjut: In his heart Romney never conceded. Because why? Unpatriotic douchebag.
Skarekrough: Now now, to his credit when he lost he didn't call in the lawyers.
sprawl15: unexplained bacon: sidenote...watched Newt's interview on Colbert....I'm shocked to say that he actually seemed to be introspective and blamed the GOP directly and not the people who didn't vote for them. Must be a con of some sort, I know, but still I was surprised.Good politicians know that the month after the election is the best time to lay some blame on yourself - it makes you look good and doesn't cost you anything. Newt may be half scrotum, but he's from the older breed that still knew how to politic.
Hydra: theknuckler_33: It's really amusing seeing conservatives behaving as if only conservatives pay taxes.It's amusing seeing progressives behaving as if only progressives are unselfish or care about others.
Mugato: You know, thinking about it, I haven't heard anyone say anything positive about Romney ever, except him and his family. Not even at the RNC, really, even though I didn't watch it all. That's rare. Even Dukakis had some people with a kind word or two.
Hydra: Have any of you ever read Adam Smith?
Hydra: There's nothing in that statement that's incorrect.
dudemanbro: Calling people "son" is totally douchey. And by the way, Obama Supporters Subsidize Romney Supporters With Their Taxes
Aldon: Free stuff for the 1%: Reduced taxesFree stuff for corporations: Reduce taxes.
SevenizGud: Yeah, because letting people keep some of their income is the same as giving them stuff.Liberal logic right there, ladies and germ
CPennypacker: Laugh even harder at this when you're done.
morlinge: I think all this article proves is how much the democrats love to gloat after their victory. Clearly the republican party is trying to be the bigger man, but the democrats just cannot stop spiking the ball. Really disgraceful.
Whiskey Pete: How dare THOSE people thinking that they are ENTITLED to affordable healthcare so that a major illness doesn't saddle them with crushing debt for the rest of their lives
It's easy to just swipe at Mitt, and apparently the voyage from magnanimous concession to biatchy loser is a short one, but Romney's points are extremely weak.
neenerist: Learning the difference between 'some' and 'all' - otherwise generalized to degree - will raise your arguments above the schoolyard level.
SevenizGud: dudemanbro: Calling people "son" is totally douchey. And by the way, Obama Supporters Subsidize Romney Supporters With Their TaxesYeah, because the auto bailout wasn't designed to win Ohio.
SevenizGud: Yeah! Why should I have to be responsible for myself?
SevenizGud: Whiskey Pete: How dare THOSE people thinking that they are ENTITLED to affordable healthcare so that a major illness doesn't saddle them with crushing debt for the rest of their livesYeah! Why should I have to be responsible for myself?
Blathering Idjut: So we're back to arguing that saving Detroit was a bad thing? You guys give me whiplash.
SevenizGud: neenerist: Learning the difference between 'some' and 'all' - otherwise generalized to degree - will raise your arguments above the schoolyard level.Whatever. Taxing someone less is not giving them anything. It's taking less from them.
SevenizGud: Blathering Idjut: So we're back to arguing that saving Detroit was a bad thing? You guys give me whiplash.I don't know who "you guys" are. I was always against the bailout. In fact, I was for the razing of Detroit years before the automakers went bankrupt...just like I was for the bulldozing of New Orleans even BEFORE Katrina.
