By writing off 47% of Americans, Mitt Romney's chances of winning depend on him winning 93% of the remaining 53% of Americans.

18 Targetpractice  Mon, Sep 17, 2012 7:40:30pm

He was compared to Nixon the other day, and seeing him like that, I can see why. This is a man who cannot handle the pressure of sudden changes. I can't for a second imagine this man answering the infamous "3am phone call" and not flying into an immediate panic.

Mitt Romney's press conference was like a philanderer apologizing for hurting his wife's feelings but saying he won't leave his mistress.

If the rumors that he might have managed to use losses in '08 to wipe out his '09 income tax liability are true, releasing his returns now would be suicide.

Mitt's 47% lazy slacker underclass breaks down like this..

28.3% paid payroll taxes but no income taxes. Which means they are employed in low paying jobs.

10.3% are elderly

7% are poor, income under $20K.

1% other..

49 goddamnedfrank  Mon, Sep 17, 2012 7:47:02pm

You know what's really galling? Mitt's talking about how little net income tax 47% of Americans who take advantage of things like the per child and mortgage interest tax credit pay while refusing to release his own returns.

He wants to be in charge of signing off on changes to the tax code while refusing to disclose how much he pays. Then he has the nerve to disparage nearly half of the people in the country, who take advantage of many of the same credits and deductions he has his whole life, as "victims."

As he ages Romney's face is turning a bit more pudgy, he's also gaining weight it would appear. When this happens that short, neat cut with slicked back hair style that is so corporate boardroom just doesn't work well.

He needs to go the fashion path that former Japanese PM Koizumi made popular - the long flowing mane of pepper grey. That would help greatly balance out the increasing soft jowls, rounding nose, and increasing bags under the eyes.

Must have gotten sticky at the last fund raising event.

Nah, he probably shit his pants today leading up to the presser because of everything that's been coming out.

I actually don't think PBO laughed at this one. This wasn't something stupid directed at him that he would shrug off and not give a shit about. R-Money was insulting half the country. The half that supports him so I think it may have pissed him off a little.

Charlie Pierce was noting that McCain was probably somewhere right now, knocking back shots of whiskey and laughing his ass off as Willard slowly gets roasted.

McCain has got to be enjoying this. I'll never forgive him for foisting Caribou Barbie on the rest of us, but I can just imagine him laughing at Mittens right now.

"I'm Mitt Romney, and this message is a distraction."

All this while Mitt never knew he was supposed to approve the messages. Listen close, he actually says..
"I'm Mitt Romney and I improve this message."

He was compared to Nixon the other day, and seeing him like that, I can see why. This is a man who cannot handle the pressure of sudden changes. I can't for a second imagine this man answering the infamous "3am phone call" and not flying into an immediate panic.

That man doesn't need to be anywhere near the Big Red Button.
Damn...

I'm totally stealing this line from someone on twitter a few days ago, but I just want to walk up to Gingrich, yell in face "but you're not electable," and run away really fast.

re: #15 darthstar

By writing off 47% of Americans, Mitt Romney's chances of winning depend on him winning 93% of the remaining 53% of Americans.

It's even worse than that. Because of the electoral college, depending on where his votes are coming from, he'll need more than a simple majority of the remainder. He'll probably get plenty of votes from Texas, but it only counts one time in the electoral college.

Of course, after first whining about how we're talking about this, Dana Loesch reverses course and is doubling down on the stupidity:

And for a double dose of delusion:

Yeah, Obama's been the one who has been tanking in the polls since the embassy attacks, not the guy who turned it into a political hitjob.

just in case anyone needs some facts when talking to wingnuts. Here is the chart from the non-partisan Tax Policy Center that demolishes this whole 47% don't pay taxes nonsense.

[Link: www.taxpolicycenter.org...]

it's actually 7.9% who don't pay federal income or payroll taxes.

how did someone like Dana Loesch ever land a job where she speaks about current events and politics? She's the biggest lame brain i've ever heard.

It's the Andrew Breitbart model. Most of it is pure rage or shock jock rhetoric.

I'd like to see more demographic breakdown on the 47%. I bet about half are traditional GOP supporters and half aren't. That is too big of a sample size to be much different than any random sampling of Americans.

re: #56 Sionainn

Your wife?

When my grandfather was still alive and I was helping to keep him from burning down the house, he used to like to put those plastic t.v. dinners in the oven on at about 425, to get them done faster. Of course, the plastic was only rated to about 325, so there were times when molten plastic was floating around in his food, but when you're 99, anything that was going to kill you has already died.

It's Gingrich. I don't think you'll need to worry about getting away "really fast". A brisk stroll will probably suffice.

My wife apparently can't tell the difference between microwave and conventional oven directions and put something in the microwave on high for 55 minutes.

Seriously, who the fuck does that?

I wouldn't say slowly. He's being scorched with a blowtorch.

Goleta Park Our Sunday GetawayWe drove 80 miles up to this favorite spot. The weather was nice, the tides accommodating, and the waves calm. Too calm. Instead of ocean and beach, we shot wildlife in the brackish creek.
