Mittens being delusional and detached from reality isn't wishful thinking on the part of republicans it is a mental health disorder in need of care in a secure facility  republicans have gone completely and utterly Looney toons.

Remember how the Republican 1/6 rioters got really close to Mitt?

Look, I'm no great lover of Mitt Romney, but the overall point of his article is entirely correct. The problem is he's boiling down very complex issues into something that's better suited for USA Today than The Atlantic, which has made more than its fair share of very poor editorial decisions lately. He's also blithely ignoring the fact that many of the criticisms being leveled here, in particular this one:

President Joe Biden is a genuinely good man, but he has yet been unable to break through our national malady of denial, deceit, and distrust...Our elected officials put a finger in the wind more frequently than they show backbone against it. Too often, Washington demonstrates the maxim that for evil to thrive only requires good men to do nothing.

Can, with very very little effort and imagination, be exactly applied to him.

As inflation mounts and the national debt balloons, progressive politicians vote for ever more spending.

Maybe do away with the tax cuts for the wealthy/government handouts and also start taxing corporations?

When TV news outlets broadcast video after video of people illegally crossing the nation's southern border, many of us change the channel.

Then vet them and let them in legally with minimal red tape. Or is 'legal status' really not the issue with Republicans?

The remainder of the article speaks of leadership, to which, yeah...leadership is good, but the real cancer in this country has been misinformation poisoning the populace with unprecedented toxicity: Fox News, OAN, Sinclair, et.al are conning our most suggestive to take up arms against teachers, school boards, doctors and of course playing the hits by demonizing liberals, POC and immigrants. No leader is going to break through to a salivating populace looking for payback against whomever Tucker told them to be angry at on a particular day.

Marcus Aurelius: RMoney told us who he is, and we should believe him.



Here he was in 2012 (from debate with Obama):

"We've always encouraged young people: take a shot, go for it, take a risk, get the education, borrow money if you have to from your parents, start a business," Romney said today before a group of (utterly enthralled) students at Otterbein University in Ohio:

He continued "Isn't it awesome that we all grew up as the children of a state Governor."

"What clears the scales from the eyes of a nation? Pearl Harbor did. 9/11 did."

I mean, it did remove the scales from a lot of eyes. It made a LOT of us realize all of the previous military adventurism was a load of post-hoc rose-colored bullshiat streamed down our throats growing up, since we saw the manufacturing of consent right in front of us. It made a lot of us realize that "If you're not with us, you're against us flag-humping, USA-can-do-no-wrong" meant that we were against you, then, because you were some drooling hatebags.

I don't think that's what Mittens meant, though. I think his "removed scales from eyes" was "put blinders on so they'll hump the flag harder, and tax cuts."

Romney just can't admit that he's the problem. Romney went full throttle on the firehose of falsehood method of politics and that's the same thing Trump did. Even in this article in order to BSAB he brings up the fake border crisis. Romney wants America to be obedient employees with the GOP as the CEO but the methods he uses to get there actually turns people into Trumpers. Republicans suck because Republican leaders made them suck.

During the run up to the 2002 Olympics I saw firsthand how easily his mind would change as soon as it was clear what other people thought.  It was a tactic that let him take credit for a whole lot of stuff that better people were responsible for.

Hey, Mitt, how about you start by calling out your lying sack of shiat niece? Oh, you won't? She's a subhuman coont because she learned it from your entire conscienceless family?

How about you stop contributing to a climate of no consequences or criticism for being an openly evil conservative?

Yeah, there are a lot of people on this thread who apparently can't read.

Which is weird in a text based message forum like this, but it's the onoy explanation. Either that, or they're taking a stand on soemthing they didn't even bother to read, because, well, if they read it, they might just find out that they don't know what the fark they're talking about.

That was a long post to say 'Welcome to Fark', I guess...

Thank you for your opinion you immensely powerful and insufferably rich bastard. I'm the article off now by the dozen and soon, running down the street shouting like George Bailey and throwing them wildly at my neighbors, everyone will get to see your thoughts as written.
You've done it. You've changed the world.

The goal of capitalism is to take all the money and institute generational debt resulting in a permanent prison slave system in favor of the job creators.

Why can't we all just come together to do whatever the Republicans want?

Isn't that what the American people want? If not, no problem. Ben Sasse has already written about how maybe we should just ignore the rot in the system. One of these days we'll all be dead, so who cares?

Romney made a fortune by raiding firms, taking out all of the equity while crippling them with debt and then burning them to the ground. Don't forget to add that he would put the company stock into his IRA while it was worthless and then the have the stock value skyrocket and then sell it off which allowed him to exploit tax loopholes for retirement account contribution limits and end up with hundreds of millions in his IRA.

Fark him.

We already have ridiculously thorough databases that can tell law enforcement if someone is on a terrorist watchlist in fractions of a second. Immigrants and refugees are kept in cages for months because it pleases racist Republicans.

How much money did Romney, his family, his friends, his business all benefit from Trump's cash giveaway to rich people and corporations?

Yeah, so fark you Mitt for suggesting progressive spending is wasteful spending.  Progressive spending helps the economy and pays for itself because the spending goes right back into the economy.  Wealthy people and corporations just buy back stock and/or sit on the cash.  Money is most useful when it's moving, like electric current.  That's why it's called currency.

Nonsense.

The Governor asked Utahns - of ALL faiths, not just the Jesusy ones - to pray for rain.

That's called "strong, decisive leadership", libs. You should try it sometime.

// praying for tidal waves
// wanna see the ground give way
// wanna watch it all go down

President Joe Biden is a genuinely good man, but he has yet been unable to break through our national malady of denial, deceit, and distrust. A return of Donald Trump would feed the sickness, probably rendering it incurable. Congress is particularly disappointing: Our elected officials put a finger in the wind more frequently than they show backbone against it. Too often, Washington demonstrates the maxim that for evil to thrive only requires good men to do nothing.

Romney isn't wrong here. He doesn't blame his party for creating this monster, and takes no responsibility himself, but he's still not wrong.
