eraser8: There's some industrial strength crazy in the comments, though.
AdolfOliverPanties: Mormonism is probably second only to Scientology in the farking insane batshiat category.
Facetious_Speciest: America just isn't ready for a president that believes in space-gods.
Mugato: "The atheists"? Like 6% of the population? And whose to say they vote democrat?
baka-san: Mugato: "The atheists"? Like 6% of the population? And whose to say they vote democrat?I would say the majority, simply cause of the religious right takeover of the GOP...But I do in fact know a Pagan Teabagger, so there are always the curve killers.
hubiestubert: The reason that Romney lost was that he was out of touch, he had sh*tty policy planks in the platform, he chose perhaps the douchiest of running mates, and ran a campaign that was out of touch.He was chosen, because he was well known for sliding campaign cash to the right people. Romney was never going to win. The field was piss poor, and while there were a few contenders to make it look like a horse race, it was not about winning the office. Romney isn't exactly well liked in the GOP, and sacrificing an asshat who makes other Republicans feel uncomfortable was sort of win-win. Yes, he was there, he had a record as a Governor, and him losing, after trying to get on the ticket in the last go around, takes him off the table, save as a fundraiser, which he IS good at. He is very good at manipulating cash, and reminding him of this role was important for the party.Winning? Against the President who got HCR through, and actually got OBL? That was a pipe dream only for the rubes. Romney running was not about winning, it was about narrative and keeping money flowing to the RNC's coffers and keeping the faithful engaged and feeling like they were doing something. Romney was always about distraction. Not quite in the same fashion as Palin, but they're close in that they have no official role in the government, they are good at getting cash out, and to the right people. They are useful. Not winners. Romney was never supposed to win, he was just a place card holder, and while the rubes may have thought he had a chance, I don't believe for a single moment that anyone in leadership positions either wanted him in, nor did they really believe that he had a chance. He wasn't falling on his sword for the good of the party, but he was just a place holder to give the illusion that there was a reason to give money to the party and the campaign. It was about cash. Plain and simple. The same as Zig Ziglar's motivational talks, it was about parting rubes from their wallets.Breakdown ...
FloydA: The real reason that Barack Obama won the 2012 Presidential election is because Mitt Romney let the secret slip that he is actually Mitt Romney.
Mugato: They're still throwing out theories as to why Romney lost? Here's a theory. He sucks. That didn't take you 5 minutes to read.
acefox1: I thought Romney lost because Obama was giving poor people free "stuff."I thought it was also because of that secret camera guy at the fundraiser who put out all that unedited video totally out of context to make Romney look like a plutocrat.I also thought it was because DC Comics named their super-bad villain Bane in 1993, then waited until the 2012 election to put him in a movie smearing the guy who built Bain Capital.Jeez rethuglicans, you make it so hard to keep your narrative straight.
Mugato: AdolfOliverPanties: Mormonism is probably second only to Scientology in the farking insane batshiat category.Jehovah's Witnesses. They're more of a cult than Mormonism. I wouldn't even really classify Mormonism as a cult.
AdolfOliverPanties: But it isn't a cult?
hubiestubert: I don't believe for a single moment that anyone in leadership positions either wanted him in, nor did they really believe that he had a chance.
WippitGuud: Romney lost with the utterance of two words."Please, continue."
Arachnophobe: C'mon, we all know the real reason Romney lost was that he wasn't conservative enough! That's why the silent majority of Real Conservatives sat the election out!
WippitGuud: Romney lost with the utterance of two words."Please, continue proceed."
eraser8: Okay, I know this is going to sound weird...but, even though TFA is from WorldNetDaily, it really isn't that bad.There's some industrial strength crazy in the comments, though.
