  1. Is he just stupid? If you seriously intend to run against someone and win, at the very least, you have to know what they're saying, what they're planning, and what they're thinking. That's how yous ell yourself to a divided public. How do you expect to tell anyone why you're worth voting for if you don't even know what their other option is selling.

    What a joke. This arrogant strutting around is juvenile and amateurish, and demonstrates that Romney really has no intention to run seriously or intelligently.

  2. Romney obviously has a little man complex he’s been trying to make up for all of his life from bullying classmates to his enjoyment of firing people after gutting their companies. His Magic Mormon Underwear can’t protect him from the press but can they make enough cash rain down to win the election?

  3. He's lying again. It's an illness.

  4. if he "hasn't watched so far" then how can he possibly comment on Clinton's speech in any kind of believable way.

  5. He had better be resting and preparing, because The President is going to walk over him. I predict a lot of foolish looking moments.

  6. Obama said the same f-cking thing the day of Romney's speech. He wasn't going to watch it. But there's a difference! Pointing that out makes one racist, doesn't it.

  7. No Markus...that's not what makes one racist.
    Belonging to a church that has a history of racism might though. Surrounding yourself with rich white men might though. Trying desperately to prove that you're not a racist might though....as in "some of my best friends are"...blah blah blah.

  8. Willard might want to watch - he could see what the nation looks like -all you have to do is look at the audience Mittens- the clock is ticking on racist, white, old men.....

  9. Rich white men? Care to name some brown or black democrat male senators? Ok I'll hold k thanks.

  10. Right on Nick !
    Racism isn't only about who you surround yourself with all the time Markus...it's a state of mind & heart.
    Think...Tea Party.
    Think...Mormon Church.
    Think...Deep South.

  11. I think Mitt Romney is at a point where he's not even really connected with reality as he lies so consistently and effortlessly about everything and anything. He's very talented politically by being able to analyze everything he's going to say in order to maximize his appeal to his voters however whether what he's saying is true or not never passes his mind.

    It would be a lot better if he had learned to spin things instead of flat out lie because I think that will really blow up in his face when you can make a great sound byte of mitt saying 2 clearly very separate things 4-6 years apart in an effort to be appealing.

  12. If he'd been watching the Dem convention, he'd probably hide under the bed till election time since the Repub one was like a funeral by comparison. He might have learned something about charisma from Clinton, but, alas, you've either got it or you don't. VTers will be waving good riddance now that he's done hiding in our state and is headed back to the Romney compound in NH. Bye bye, Mittens!

  13. He hired someone at minimum wage from China to watch. Don't worry he'll fire them right after.

  14. Mitt is a poor speaker. He needs to learn how to speak if not from Obama, may be from Churchill or even Reagan.

  15. Hey, that's how I feel about voting Repubican... haven't so far, don't plan on it.

    Everybody says there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.

    The Netherlands and Belgium are just as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.

    Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.

    What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?

    How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?

    And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?

    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.

    Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.
