Ohio Voters Praise The Romney They Think They Know: VIDEO

Whitesideohio

Chase Whiteside braved the swing state hell of Ohio to talk with Mitt Romney supporters about why they're supporting the Republican presidential candidate.

"He's a family man. He's a Christian. He doesn't believe in abortion; he doesn't believe in homosexuality and let me tell you, I believe in God and God is going to make sure Mr. Romney wins," says the woman pictured above.

Watch the rest AFTER THE JUMP.

  1. I'm conflicted whether I should LAUGH, CRINGE or be HORRIFIED at the level of stupidity seen here.......

  2. Chase is an incredible young man.

    His composure in these interviews and ability to get these people to just show their true colours is remarkable.

    And for all the folks who'd wanna say "he's only showing the bad interviews!" - well, he's previously aired his unedited footage he takes from these events.

    GOP rallies, the insanity of a sarah palin booklaunch signing - he's not picking the "bad ones" - there aren't any "good" ones to show!

    Check out the B-roll he's also got on youtube from this same event. it's freaking astounding how sad it is.

    btw, why are folks still bringing up Obama's "involvement" with that church and ignoring that Mittens did MISSIONARY WORK before God had His great big change of mindset about black people? Mitt has yet to say "my church was wrong about its racist stances".

  3. Willard isn't a Christian; he's a Mormon. Mormons aren't Christian.

  4. This is akin to Pelosi's daughter filming for Bill Maher's show down in the South. Every person she filmed was a misinformed citizen who never watches the news and never seeks out more information; they just settle for and utilize the judgmental life skills they've always known: racism, sexism and religion.

  5. Speaking as a European I don't understand why some people say that Obama has made US the laughing stock of the world. If I remember correctly, according to a recent poll, most Europeans like Obama and prefer him absolutely over Romney.

    But I've read enough of the tactics and the propaganda of the right wing in the US, and elsewhere too, to know that truth is the first victim in a rush to power.

  6. Is that a corpse voting?

  7. Sadly- this is a true representation of the Ohioans who will vote for Rob-me and Lyin Ryan.
    As a life-long resident of the state -it saddens me to see this state consistently vote against its own interests. The GOPTP in Ahia (learn how to pronounce it like the lower 2/3rds of the state who wished they lived in the Confederacy) have a stranglehold on state politics that you cannot imagine. The few progressives left in this state hope that Cuyahoga, Lucas and other democratic counties can turn out the numbers and combined with a sliver of Franklin County in Central Ohio makes the difference. Don't be surprised either way on Tuesday.

  8. It's horrifying to see how living a life full of hate can ravage the human face...

  9. Have any of these people graduated from high school? I find this horrifying - obviously missing the ability to apply clear thought to assess a political candidate's credentials.

  10. I feel like I'm hearing the South Carolina teen pagent contestant's infamous answer in its extended play form. Like the Iraq and the Buddhists and such as.

  11. it is wild how the far right are operating within an echo chamber of misinformation. i hear it every time i have a political conversation with my father. when you march this lack of logic into the light of day it just falls apart.

    apparently emotions in particular anger are the force behind their thinking. i just don't understand where the anger comes from. are they really being followed by drones like that one woman said when she discussed her perception of having freedoms taking away? that is some wild stuff.

  13. The obvious question is how many people had to be interviewed before finding these "gems".

    Some years ago a national TV show (60 Minutes?) did a hit piece on Marin County, just north of San Francisco, which started with a naked person (nothing objectionable shown) surrounded by members of the opposite sex tickling him or her with peacock feathers. That scene apparently was actually filmed in San Francisco. They beat the bushes and found a sample of the weirdest 0.1% of Marin County residents - generally self-absorbed new-age types - and passed them off as typical of the area.

    There was a not-politically-correct joke going around that they were going to put up a sign at the county line saying, "You are leaving San Francisco County, fruit and nut capital of the world, and entering Marin County, famous for its hot tubs and peacock feathers" - right by the tunnel you enter just north of the Golden Gate Bridge, the tunnel with the rainbow painted around it. The target of the joke was supposed to be the news media, of course,

  14. Old people in particular are receptive to fear tactics and the Right, aided by the GOP's propaganda wing Fox News, has been creating the Kenya born, socialist, Muslim Obama fantasy for 4 years. Even longer if you include their pre-election coverage. This fantasy Obama is a Death Panel promoting FAR Left liberal who's going to take away their guns and religion then dump granny in a ditch somewhere.

    Never mind that it doesn't even slightly resemble the actual Obama, a center-slightly-left politician who has done NONE of those things, and that if the elderly have anyone to fear it's people like Romney and Ryan who want to dismantle Social Security and Medicare in favor of a VOUCHER system.

    The Dems trade in fear too, but unlike with the Republicans there is some basis in fact for that fear. If you are gay or love someone who is, there is plenty to legitimately fear. If you are a woman then the rhetoric surrounding rape, birth control, and reproductive rights should make you legitimately fearful.

  15. Then there's the B roll with social issues, including marriage:

  16. Seriously, check out his interviews with people who were lined up to get copies of Sarah Palin's autobiography.

    it's the exact same thing as you see here - oh sure, they love her! she'd be a GREAT president! why?

    "because, Jesus. good judgment. CHANGE! she's just good people. she's not Obama. "

    um, those aren't reasons.

    they can't cite a policy of Obama's they object to. it's all fox news styled fear-based baseless nonsense.

    this isn't a case of "how many republicans did they have to interview before they found these idiots" but a case of "republican voters are idiots"

    truly.

    it's harder to find an intellectually-honest republican voter.

  17. I hope she loses her faith when her god makes President Obama win.

  18. This is a perfect example of the saying, "You can't teach an old dog new tricks". These old white people were born and raised in a time when discrimination and segregation was not only legal, it was encouraged by those in power. It was also a time of closed mindedness and simplistic reasoning.

    It's sad, but you can't really expect a more worldly or enlightened view from these people, they're simply not going to hear it!

    Also a sad statement of fact (but yet good) is these people are a dying breed, and the world will be a better place when folks like this are no longer with us. We will always have people who hate, but it will be because they hate, not because they are just plain ignorant!

  19. seeing a whooooole lot of white people on here.....

    I don't know if people are getting dumber, issues are more complex nowadays and harder to grasp, or if we just have more media nowadays to record more people and there isn't more ignorance but just better observation of it, but man- this is (from my experiences living in a usually red state that went blue last election surprisingly) more the rule rather than the exception with Romney supporters.

    I like how all that needs to be done to completely throw them is just asking them to go into particulars about who the straw men in their arguments actually are. Who exactly is forcing you to change your religion? are you sure you're not confusing that with not letting you prosthelytize in the middle of congress?


    And that woman from the still shot looks like a female Reverend Kane from Poltergeist 2... creepy.

  22. I spent allot of time and money educating myself, it seems like these people didn't even graduate high school. I can only surmise that they must be racist and homophobic, period. They make no sense whatsoever!

  23. Put a folk in Obama, he's done! He has been exposed, as being inept and clueless. He couldn't talk to kindergarten children without his teleprompter! So get used to the words: "President Romney"
