Mitt Romney and his shenanigans....will he ever learn??

United States
October 8, 2012 8:09pm CST
So not only have we learned through Romney's campaign that he is sexist...he is a racist...he is a rich, pampered, arrogant jerk....he wants to kill Big Bird...he wants to take away a woman's right to choose....he wants to jeopardize medicare and social security....he wants to impose an average of $2000 more a year in income tax...he thinks that airplane windows should be able to open....he thinks that 47% of Americans are freeloaders...he hid his money in off-shore bank accounts to avoid paying taxes in the States....he thinks that middle class income is $200,000....he insulted China and Russia in one of his many idiotic speeches....he likes being able to fire people who have been of service to him (going back to him being rich and arrogant)...he develops amnesia quite frequently and can't remember half of the bull that he's spewed and retorts with "I stand by what I said, whatever it was"...is there anything else that this man could possibly do to prove himself any more un-worthy of holding the title of President of the United States of America? I bet you just told yourself no....This FOOL accepted foreign money to fund his campaign!! Are you kidding me?? As if he hasn't already had enough stupid antics during his campaign, he goes and accepts foreign money to fund his election campaign? I hope he gets disqualified. PLEASE let this man get disqualified. I hope he gets disqualified from running and they stick his pampered @$$ in a nice cozy little jail cell with some of the 47%. I would laugh and laugh and laugh until I couldn't laugh anymore. I would laugh and laugh and laugh in the faces of all the people who supported him; all the people who were brainwashed by his shenanigans...I refer to those people as having Stockholm Syndrome....I would laugh and laugh and laugh straight to the polls and stand up and cheer with the rest of the "freeloaders" in this country that would have never voted for him to begin with.

I am not a fan of Romney. As a Republican I find it embarrassing this man is our candidate. His goal is to put things back the way Bush ran the country, because ultimately he represents the rich and well to do. A president has to look out for all the people in his country, and for that reason alone I am saddened that I can't vote in line with my party. Obama may not be the most effective president, but he is a better man than Romney will ever be.

I've heard a lot of Republicans are feeling this way. But there are also those die-hard Republicans who defend Romney's policies and would vote Republican even if the candidate was a chimpanzee. My boyfriend's dad is pretty Republican and he always has bad things to say about Obama and how Romney is good. But every time he talks about Romney it's only about one aspect of Romney's campaign. To me, it just seems very narrow-minded of him to disregard everything else and only focus on how Romney is pro-military, even though Obama wants to start bringing our military home. I'm not sure how I feel about either candidate but I do think that Obama would be the better choice in this election.

I think we need to bring our troops home. The truth is this country really needs to focus on its domestic policies. We need to get back to the self reliance that made us the land of opportunity in the first place. I think every American really needs to look deep down and see that he or she is capable of much more. Our public school system needs to stop training the future work force of America, and focus on encouraging young people to be business owners. We've grown accustomed to being handed the best of everything, and we've forgotten the work it takes to get it. Show me a Republican candidate who can inspire people to be go getters, and he will have my vote.

PhillyDreamer, that's exactly what I have been saying since the beginning. If Romney gets in office, things will go back to being exactly how it was when Bush was in office. This is like deja vu. So many Republicans fought for Bush, hell even ballots were burned in Florida and then all they did was complain about him once he got there and still had the nerve to give him another term. If Romney gets in office, it will be not just the same as Bush, I believe that it will be worse. And as you said, Obama may not be the best that we've ever seen, he is by no means a political savior, but anyone is better than Romney. And you're right. Our guys need to come home, pronto!

For the most part you just described Obama. Maybe you should do some research before you start a discussion.

This poster doesn't post anything that's relevant to any discussion. It actually is taking legitimate claims against B.O. (foreign donations) and trying to say they are being done by President Romney (that really ticks it off to say that. LOL) Only a person with Stockholm syndrome would twist things around that way. Now who's up for some deep fried big bird?

First of all don't insult my intelligence because you are one of ones with the Stockholm Syndrome....I don't need to do any research because I pay attention to politics, i watch debates, my TV stays on CNN...second of all, did you even READ the post? Clearly, it is YOUR intelligence that needs to be questioned and clearly YOU are the one who needs to do the research because there's not a damn thing in that post that refers to anything that came out of Obama's mouth....Did Obama say he wanted to kill Big Bird? No, Romney did. Is Obama a racist? No, Romney is. Does Obama want to take away women's rights? No, Romney does. Did Obama say that airplane windows should be able to be opened? No, Romney did. Did Obama forget what he said in his speech and have to be reminded and then say, "Whatever I said, I stick by it"? No, Romney did. Does Obama think that middle class families make over $200,000 a year? No, Obama does. Did Obama hide funds in off-shore accounts to avoid paying US taxes? No, Romney did. Does Obama want to raise taxes on the middle class and give millionaires a tax break? No Romney does. Did Obama set up a secret fundraiser in Israel and London and receive foreign currency to fund his campaign? No, Romney did. I think YOU need to do your research....so tell me, what's Stockholm Syndrome like?

@IRishidid....do you even know what Stockholm Syndrome is? Clearly you do not because it has nothing to do with twisting words around. Smh...wow. I'll be glad to see GOVERNOR Romney make his concession speech while Obama is standing in for another 4 years.

I honestly don't know a whole lot about either candidate but it really seems to me like Romney is a fool. What I do know are his views on abortion and how birth control shouldn't be covered by insurance. I also watched him talk about abortion and he made himself seem like an idiot by saying abortion is ok in cases of a "legitimate rape" and that a woman's body knows when she's being raped and won't release an egg to get pregnant. He just seems like an idiot and I don't think I could trust someone like that to run the country.

You are mistaken. Romney never made that comment about abortion, it was Todd Aiken of Missouri who is running for senator. You should look at Mitt Romney a little more closely. He might surprise you.

I never heard Romney say that. He said that he doesn't support abortion in any form even in cases of rape and incest. And true he doesn't think that birth control should be covered by insurance which is crap. And no clrumfelt...the only way he surprises me is when he comes up with more ways to put his feet in his mouth.

No, he believes other people shouldn't have to pay for YOUR birth control which is inevitably what happens when you mandate it as "preventive." But that's just another sign that President Obama has no clue about how health insurance actually works. Besides, we already have ample evidence that free birth control given out by insurance doesn't actually save money. (Hint, hint Medicaid)...

I rate your assessment of Romney right along side of Snoop Dogg's reasons for not voting for him, except your reasons are all lies. Some of Snoop Dogg's reasons are at least true. View his list here: http://instagram.com/p/QYGWYpP9Pd

The Lily Ledbetter fair pay act only really did one thing. It extended the amount of time for lawsuits. The rest was just duplicate legislation. But you want real proof that President Obama signed something and didn't follow it, go look at how much he pays his female employees. They are paid significantly less. That's a fact. So, President Obama's actions prove his is the real SEXIST. A lot of people even those who have had an abortion are against abortion in all forms. So what? The President has very little say since it is a Social Issue and automatically falls under the power of the Supreme Court not Congress. He wants to stop Federal Funds from going to PP. Want some reality about them? There are thousands of other sliding cost clinics that do the same thing. The number of actual clinics that PP has is a very small and doesn't really reach a large part of the female population. They only have about 1800 total clinics for the entire country, maybe less. They also don't do mammograms. But they are getting a disproportionately large amount of funds. Your insurance dictates the cost you pay for health care. All experts agree that Obamacare has significantly added to the cost. Ingrained in that bill are tax increases on medical equipment. Every single time, something is mandated, you get a cost increase no matter what insurance plan you have. The other problem is that Obamacare doesn't set limits or price controls on medical procedures. Oh yeah, one more thing, there is no guarantee that your Doctor will take the insurance. Many doctors are moving away from taking Medicare patients exactly for the reason of compensation. Don't be fooled about what Obamacare actually does. But you are relying on the Government because YOU are expecting President Obama to allocate you funds to pay for it. HANDOUT... Oh, you want something for nothing. The real truth comes out. BC pills are $9 a month...Far cheaper than they would be on insurance and what you would have to pay for on insurance coverage to make them "free." If you have the choice of paying $30 to have the "privilege" of free birth control, or you pay $9 for birth control not under insurance, which one can you really afford? But it is ironic that people say the $30 is more affordable. Gay marriage is another social issue. In reality, Romney or Obama have little to do with it. Supreme Court will make the decision until then it is a State issue. But Romney's state of Massachusetts does recognize Gay marriage whereas Illinois does not. Of course, Romney is far from ideal. So is President Obama. There is no ideal candidate. But at least Romney understands how money works. The country needs someone who understands it rather than someone who continues to spend it without understanding how it works.

Only you are paying a higher insurance premium because you are getting it for "free" because that is how insurance works. When anything is mandated by either the State or Federal Government, it gets rolled into the cost of the premium and drives prices upward. It can be anything. The problem is not that BC is called "preventive," the problem is what is next on that list? What else is going to become "preventive?" You keep adding to that list, you keep adding to the cost. It has nothing to do with politics. It is just how insurance works. Another reality is the Budget. Look at what is already happening. Medicare money is being shifted to Medicaid to pay for the extra influx. The Doctor's fix for Medicare is voted on every single year that Congress is in session since the program's conception. Then look at what the States are doing right now with President Obama in office. They are rapidly shifting funds around. How long can they play Budget roulette before you are personally affected in your children's coverage? If your husband worked for the State, what about his retirement that many States can't fund? You are missing the future in favor of right now. Your kids at this point owe the Federal Government $16,000+ RIGHT NOW. That number is ticking upward. Do you really want you future baby to owe more than that because President Obama can't get his spending under control? But I am not the one saying this. Ben Bernanke is the one saying this. Many experts are saying this. The CBO is cranking out the estimated numbers on the cost which you can find on their website (not a blog). I am not trying to change your mind. What I want you to do is go look. Go look at what practically bankrupt States are doing. Go look at the money shifts to pay for these Social Programs. Go look at the bill cost estimates. Go look at the State's budgets without the spin of the blogs. Just go look at something besides blogs or CNN. Don't be afraid to go to the Library of Congress or use .gov.

I wanted to add since you are paying that much for your BC, you should get a hold of the manufacturer and see if they will give you some coupons or a discount.

Go read a non-blog like the Library of Congress, CBO, IRS website, or better yet the GMC financial statements. Then ask yourself why you would continue to vote for someone who can't even get his own party to vote on his own budget.

@MsControversy 194 posts? Welcome to mylot. A few things about the political section. Most people who post here tend to be die hard republicans who could have Romney come up to their face and flat out say he hopes they die, and they will still vote for him. In fact some of them are so horribly bad with money and budgeting that somehow they aren't better off than four years ago. Next.. do not ask them to research on Romney. He is their messiah to get Obama out of office. They can not comprehend that he flip flops, says what they want to hear, and that his tried and failed policies will not work once again. They need him like they need to breathe. While I am not sure he is a racist, though I do not doubt it, the fact that he wants instate laws based on his religion (the federal marriage amendment act) is enough to irritate me. He was caught saying the 47% thing, but you can expect every right winger here to think it was a trick saying or it was recorded wrong. Hell, it may have been a Mitt Romney robot. *sarcasm* You can obviously judge the intelligence of the right wing to be fairly low the moment they say this is about Obama. In which case, you will just give yourself a headache because they aren't able to comprehend a word that you are saying. My five year old would understand the difference and he is five. These people are older so you can only imagine the education they received to ignore what is so blatantly about Romney and call it a joke. They can't handle you saying it about Romney. They need to believe that Romney will magically fix everything. I mean Romney is caught on camera speaking about 47% of Americans... but "oh that was illegal and he didn't mean it because he told us he didn't... so he MUST be telling the truth." I mean they think 0.012% of our budget (PBS) is hurting the country. Hahahahahaha I stopped posting to this section as much because the amount of people that can't do math and just watch Fox News or just believe everything because they have to believe it makes me lose all hope in humanity. Just think should the idiot (Romeny) get elected... they will be crying. As for me well I will still be laughing because... Hey, Romney plans to take away some of the regulations and make tax laws so much easier for me to work with and profit highly off of and when I start my own small firm (as in get the office space), I get a lower tax rate which means I don't have to hire anyone and I can profit off their poor unfortunate souls. Overall if we are voting the lesser of two evils it is Obama. In my honest opinion... I say vote in third party, but alas it looks like I might have no choice but to vote for Obama to make sure idiot doesn't get elected. *sighs* Now I have to waste my vote on someone I don't support so it doesn't go to someone I really don't support.

I love what you just said! I agree with you 110%....Sadly not enough people take a look at 3rd party the way they should. As I said, which I know you read because clearly you can read and you are intelligent enough to comprehend what I was saying, I don't care for Obama but I'm voting for him because I REALLY don't care for Romney. We all know that 3rd party has about a snowball's chance in hell of taking the cake, so I have to vote for Obama to make my vote help keep Romney out of office. Just like I said before, voting for Romney is like saying, "Obama can't cure cancer, so I vote for cancer"....Thank you for sharing AidaLily. =)
