    Romney’s desperate “new?” attempt to talk about President Obama in a1998 video about being a socialist and more on this redistribution BS.

    Didn’t they get the memo, John McCain and Sarah Palin tried this in 2008 and failed……miserably!

    The great thing about this real moment for Mitt and so many other honest moments, is that Romney is dragging the entire Republican ticket down.

    Mother Jones, the left-wing magazine that released a controversial video of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s remarks to a fundraiser in May, now admits that it has no full tape of what Romney said, and that its video is missing “one to two minutes” at the most important moment.

    Lies do work do they not

    Do you really need another minute or two of MittWitt shooting himself in the foot???

    I with you, let’s have another minute or two more of Mitt’s loathing of half of Americans rant.

    Is their anything he really could say that could counteract all the other stuff he said? I mean honestly what are we missing a clip of him laughing and saying “got you, all this stuff is not what I believe so ignore it”

    “Americans are 50% to blame…”

    I agree, though I’d have asigned a larger percentage. Every once in awhile, scenes from the movie ‘Idiocracy’ pops into mind.

    the Obama Administration tasked an unarmed British firm with security responsibilities that should have been handled by armed American servicemen, and it was all approved by the Secretary of State. Needless to say, the plan failed and an Ambassador was murdered, along with several others.

    great leader.

    I hate cable news. Fox and MSNBC are why america is hated in the world.

    I don’t think the ordinary Muslim fundamentalist cares much about television. Besides using it to view porn, that is.

  • Jeff

    @the Obama Administration tasked an unarmed British firm with security responsibilities

    Ahh! Breitbart trash……you loose…..try again.

  • Sicilian Papa

    Huntsman, Pawlenty, oh come on. Yeah we are going to let you lefties choose our candidate. We did that last time with McCain. How did that work out for us?

    Romney was not our first choice. He was the last man standing.

    If the lib. media hadn’t covered up and acted as campaign staff for Obama he would have been toast in 08. The game is rigged, the umpires are crooked but what are we going to do.

    I like Romney more now than I did when he was nominated. At least he fights the corrupt vermin in the lib. media.

    BARRACK “REDISTRIBUTION” OBAMA is a total failure. Print some more money Barrack, give another speech in Cairo.

    @ Mark,

    “I though Romney would be the hardest of the bunch to go up against because I thought he would be more moderate and win over a few independents”

    Interesting point, my family is from Mass. some of them find Romney’s “tough God’s man” character laughable because they all know that he is a liberal when it come to social issue. Yet he is throwing more red meat to the far religious right by suggesting that Obama wants to take “God” of coins. Romney just want to save the elite class of America from finally being treated fairly. By treated fairly I mean they will still be very rich they just won’t be treated like a glorified Playboy model by a 90 years old oil tycoon. Romney is so fake he makes fake Rolex watches look legit.

    what is the difference McCain or Romney

    BHO is the worst President ever

  • PoodlePower

    @James
    “The GOP is in freefall…”

    According to RealClearPolitics, Romney continues to trail Obama by 3%, even after the 47% comment. This hasn’t changed in several weeks. It is hard for me to equate pre-election increases in viewership of one cable news/opinion channel with a political party in freefall. It would be interesting to see if MSNBC’s numbers maintain through the elections and beyond.

    Muslims in general are great people, your broad statement is very inaccurate and ridiculous.

    Hi James.
    It’s always good when you drop by.
    “Big big night for msnbc ..rachel crushed hannity in the key demo big numbers for everybody..all thanks to that blundering clown mitt” This guy is such a buffoon and he was the chosen one, after the crazy parade of right wing candidates who fell off, after the Repub. ‘debates’ (?) and left Mitt standing. Standing for what? Most people in their right minds detest him and see him for what he is: phony, no empathy for the middle class, as Mitt likes to say, those making 250 K. a year, yes, Mitt, that’s middle class. Sure. He’s a one man wrecking ball, which has been fastened around rt wing, repub. conserv. necks. Old, young, poor, middle class, females of all ages, people of color, you name it, see the R and R duo for what it is: Shills for the corps, mean, phony, limited skills and bad for Americans. If these two get into power, all social safety nets will go bye bye and the money from the eliminated programs will go directly to the top 1% and the rest of the people will end up as serfs in the gutter. There is still time for R and R to win. Heck, I never thought W. would have a shot at another four years, but, there he was, still in my WH. Time will tell, however, let’s face it folks, Mitt is a bad candidate, just like John Kerry. Later.

    —————————
    I just think Huntsman and Pawlenty could potentially gotten more of the independent voters(grant you I thought that was one of Romney’s strong point until he went hard right).

    Way I look at independent voters is their vote is worth 2 votes(ie 1 when they don’t vote the other guy and one for you) as compared to pandering to your base which might get you a slightly higher turnout(ie it’s either a case of 1 for you or 0 for both)

    As for last man standing come on he was up against Gingrich and Santorum, neither of those guys would have a chance in the general election. I do think Paul got screwed due to the media not crediting him as a “legit” candidate(I do think Paul had way more credibility then Santorum and Gingrich)
