keep laughing....keep sneering....keep chuckling....keep chortling...even if 2011's 30% to charity is an anomalous year coming in on the top of the high side, the 13.4 percent average (it's your problem if you're a religious bigot) to charity is I'm sure higher than Barack and his wife have ever given during their most generous year. They would be touting their own numbers if they had any that beat Mitt's. They don't Last i heard half brother George Obama is still waiting to be taken out of that sweltering Nairobi slum by Captain Compassion. Suddenly this election, unlike previous elections is all about Romeny's charitable giving ( but not Obama's) simply because Romney is a member of the superrich. Even with this added scrutiny Romney comes hrough with flying colors.

proud American

Bishop Willard gave (tithe) 30% to Salt Lake.

Hedge Fund Hal

The American people see through this kind of bias and unfairness by the press (Romney given a rectal exam over his taxes and charitable given while the reporters' and tv analysts' darlings Barry and Michelle are given a free pass) and this is gradually starting to have a backlash effect. But by all means...keep lauging....keep chuckling.... keep chortling....keep sneering.... people can see through this.......

Hedge Fund Hal

undoubtedly both candidates increased their charitable giving in 2011 the year before the election. It's called "politics". Really, the American populace clearly sees through this at his point, and the leftwing pro-Obama press is now basically writing articles for each other. The voters know they are electing a President, not a damn Pope.

Hedge Fund Hal

note to Romney voters......when you see completely gratuitous, snide leftwing nonsense like the stuff up top here, you know they are worried. All the sarcasm and the forced humor reeks just a tad of desperation. Just a tad.

Ole' Willard, the straw man, will never be elected. I don't care if Ole' Annie says they will, they won't.

Gentlemen Rouge

“After a few rough weeks for Mitt Romney and with polls beginning to swing in President Obama’s favor, conservatives on the Sunday talk shows” criticize Rmoney.

“Certainly in part, it is a referendum on this president, there is no doubt about it,” said Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI) in an appearance on “Fox News Sunday.” “But I think for most Americans … they want to know more than what’s wrong with this president. They want to know what’s right, and what’s going to move this country forward, and I think Mitt Romney has got that plan. I want to see fire in the belly. I want to see him move forward.”

Bill Kristol of the conservative Weekly Standard gave similar advice on the “Fox News Sunday” roundtable, saying that the fact that Obama was handed a bad economic situation makes a referendum message problematic for Romney. Kristol said that Obama has turned the economy around “pretty well” considering the crisis the inherited.

New York Times columnist David Brooks similarly urged Romney to run the rest of his campaign on an agenda for the next four years. Like Walker, Brooks argued that Romney’s campaign seemed to lack passion. But in contrast to Walker, who suggested Romney channel the “fire in the belly,” Brooks advised Romney take an “extremely wonky” approach.

“Mitt Romney does not have the passion for the stuff he’s talking about,” Brooks said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” roundtable. “He’s a problem solver. I think he’s a non-ideological person running in an extremely ideological age, and he’s faking it.”

T-S

Like monkeys on a teeter-totter, it goes back and forth, up and down. I watched A focus group from Pennsylvania today led by master pollster Peter Hart. Amazing how many Americans still don't know the facts. They sort of get Obamacare - sort of. And they sort of like it. Except for the Obama-haters. But they don't get anything else. Most of them thought Obama too "cool" and lacking humility. Many thought he talked a good game. An said they had "heard it before" and some of them voted for him. This was a group of supposed "undecideds" although Hart and the journalists discussing them later agreed several had made up their minds.

Ann Romney made a good impression with them. So did Michelle. The biggest problem I heard? Too many thought Obama should "reach across the aisle." That he couldn't get it done because he wasn't reaching across the aisle. Nobody seemed to understand that the Republicans vowed on day one to obstruct everything.

If that's the way the average so-called independent and undecided voter thinks, we are in a world of hurt. Nobody works so hard that they can't keep up with a little bit of the news. What a stupid group of people. And it's not the first time I've heard focus groups that are intended to represent the average American sound so stupid.

Brooks "Romney...problem solver . . . non ideological?" Brooks is an idiot. Why does anybody invite Brooks into any intelligent discussion?

Hedge Fund Hal

"what a stupid group of people"....because the people in the group don't care for Obama's personality they're "the Obama-haters"....if you didn't care for your principal at the school you worked in (let's call him Mr. Jonus) because he came across as arrogant and aloof to you, would you consider yourself a "Jonus hater"....and since because they probably aren't going to vote for First Dude they are of course those "stupid " people. You ARE in a world of hurt, T-S. I've been trying to tell you people that for a few weeks. Undecideds always break big for the challenger this close to the election, according to Gallup.

T-S

You read like you write: too fast and totally non-comprehending. As for you trying to tell anybody anything? That's a joke.

I've been trying to tell you people that for a few weeks."

Calm down, Ann.

Undecideds always break big for the challenger this close to the election, according to Gallup.

I keep telling you that's because they are lying Obama-haters. Why are you so slow?

nameless

T-S, sounds like you were watching a tainted discussion group. It happens.the poles for the indies are starting to trickle in. i've seen some that reflect Obama pulling most of them. i've also been cruising the right wing blog spots, and thomas seems to be reflecting every word.

this is for you Tommy: Republicans still haven’t figured out how to compete in the New America. An America that is more diverse, better educated, more tolerant and more open to change. They’re stuck in the Old America: Clint Eastwood.

Hedge Fund Hal

hhahaha i may have misread your particular paragraph there, but it really makes no difference. You have certainly called many of us in the past "Obama-haters", merely for accurately characterizing him as "arrogant". My point still stands. You wouldn't consider yourself a "Jonus-hater" if your 50 year old white male boss Mr. Jonus talked to you in an arrogant, aloof manner and you didn't care for him because of that.

Hedge Fund Hal

proud American- The Repubs have the first female Hispanic Governor, a couple of Indian-American Governors (first time ever) and many more examples of diversity. Your Politico article sounds like pretentious nonsense, written by a lib elitist, who only sees Democratic Party minorities who have achieved state or national office as representing legitimate, real "diversity". The others are "invisible" non=persons and race traitors. Sorry i'll take a pass on your lecturing, condescending article. hahahahhaaaa

Hedge Fund Hal

you notice how T-S now goes straight for the ad hominems in her gratuitously insulting posts that masquerade as "reponses" to my non-personal, to the point comments. hhahahaah a real sign of desperation...and intellectual bankruptcy.....by the way, T-S, your side's attempts to smear Romney on the 47% speech has completely fizzled, according to Gallups new numbers, and Rasmussen's as well. Obama popularity down from post-convention numbers (now 46 %)... Barry's lead is gone- nationally its dead even now. hhahhaahah hahaT-S

Hedge Fund Hal

sorry things just aren't going for Obama the way you had hoped and dreamed for, T-S. Lashing out with cheap, petty ad hominems and insults really will not help you. hhahahahahaaaahaaaaaaa haha T-S

You should move tommy, you'd be better off in Kansas or Missouri, not a lot of money there to fuel your monte carlo lifestyle or fantasies but plenty of non-readers like yourself being dripped an IV of red-state info.

Hedge Fund Hal

oh i read all sorts of things P.A., on libber and con./redstate websites alike. I simplydon't need to read your article, because your description alone tells me its pretentious, snobby, elitist garbage. Just as i wouldn't bother to read an article calling Obama a criminal or a communist in the headline, likewise i won't bother with your bird-cage liner from Politico. hhahaah a nice try though P.A.,,,,A for effort.....hahahah

From the pages of The American Conservative

Craig Robinson, a former political director of the Republican Party of Iowa.
“I hate to say this, but if Ryan wants to run for national office again, he’ll probably have to wash the stench of Romney off of him.”

Can you imagine that, stench?
But as I always, the genuineness can be found in the comments.

This from a commenter named Nathan;

“Romney was the right candidate – four years ago and could have beaten a little known community organizer then. Against an incumbent now? It’s starting to look doubtful.

But there’s a bigger problem here. The republicans seem incapable of putting up good candidates at the national level. Both Bush’s were bad, the son absolutely ghastly. Dole, McCain, Romney have been mediocre at best. And look at the field this year for the primaries. Newt was horrible. And most of the rest were average at best. Santorum lost his last election by what, a significant margin, right?”


ExPattBrit

Tommy , telling Bibi to "fvck off" for a change is a plus in my book.

Bibi and AIPAC trying to influence our election is disgusting. Another reason not to vote for Romney and his p̶u̶r̶c̶h̶a̶s̶e̶r̶ sponsor Adelson.

T-S

i may have misread your particular paragraph there,

Hahahahahahaha. Oh my. You're a laugh a minute. Yes, you may have. Hahahahaha.


Nameless, it is possible but these focus groups are often quite indicative of the subtext. What's really going on underneath. When the money ads hit the airwaves, I'm hoping we'll see that voters are more informed than this little group. Again, I think "undecideds" are usually really Republicans who lie. Democrats are usually more educated and more authentic. But in the end, the proof will be in the outcome of the election.

I posted some time ago that I was sitting at a union meeting of teachers and one of them did not know who Newt Gingrich was. We do have a terribly stupid electorate. Those of us on this blog are probably the exceptions.

TommyHal this is especially for you...

On Friday night’s episode of Real Time, host Bill Maher closed his “New Rules” segment with rant ripping into “undecided voters.”

“If you’re one of the 5 percent of American voters who are still undecided on who to vote for, it’s okay to admit you just don’t really give a shit,” Maher began. “Seriously, if you still can’t figure out who you like more –Mitt Romney or Barrack Obama– stay home… because you probably couldn’t find your polling place anyway. I mean, what more information does someone need to make this choice? Obama has been President for nearly four years. And Mitt Romney has been running for President since 1971, when his space egg incubated and he burst out of an astronaut’s chest.”

But Maher’s criticism wasn’t merely for the “undecideds,” but for notion that mainstream media outlets give their opinions weight.

“Can we please stop treating them like they’re more noble and discerning than the rest of us? …[Undecided voters are] put on a pedestal by the media, as if they’re Hamlet in a think tank, searching out every last bit of information and high-minded arbiters pouring over policy positions and matching them against their own philosophies. Please! They mostly fall into a category political scientists call ‘low-information voters’ –otherwise known as ‘dipshits.’”

Yep, I read it, and watched the game. And I agree it was controversial. And I would ask the packer fans, what?

Hedge Fund Hal

Savage played a speech made overhte weekend made by Michelle Obama in front of the Black Congressional Caucus. In this speech , where she expounded on the civil rights movement and slavery, she used "we" a lot, as in "we black people" not as in "we Americans". Savage had problems with parts of the speech but also the bigger point of the appropriateness of speaking in that manner in the position of First Lady. I agree with Savage anf no, I don't think it is appropriate at all. If you wanted to still make those kinds of speeches you should have divorced Barack after he was elected, Michelle, and made hem to your hearts content. You represent all Americans now. Or you and Barack should have passed on the First Family gameplan and stayed at the Senator and wife level. Not appropriate ,tacky and in poor taste.

Hedge Fund Hal

Michelle just forfeited her First Lady position, in my opinion. I now no longer consider her our First Lady, but Michelle Obama, wife of The President and White House Advocate for Black People's Civil Rights.......sorry....you can't have your cake and eat it , too.....have to decide who you're going to be here

Hedge Fund Hal

This is exactly the kind of thing that annoys and disturbs T-S'es "stupid people" in the pollsters focus group, when they contemplate Barack and Michelle, the "stupid" ones that she correctly suspected are not going to vote for Obama.

nameless

hummm, i thought black Americans were Americans too. i guess in the eyes of some others are not worthy of advocacy.

nameless

so her "we" didn't include you and therefore, inappropriate? you know tommy, sometimes "we" dosen't include you. when mitt decided 47% of the population was a write off while behind closed doors, you had not a bad word for him. of the two situations one is very sinister. i implore you, grow up.

Hedge Fund Hal

HAHAHAH now your argument is "because Mitt did it, (he didn't do it, but lets say he did) Michelle can do it"? in other words two wrongs make a right? is that really what you want to go with nameless?

Hedge Fund Hal

This is why they have a twenty percent plus and growing gap among white males......duhhh........

Supporters Struggle To Defend Romney’s Tax Plan Math

The more details Mitt Romney provides about his tax plan, the closer he gets to validating the conclusion of a nonpartisan study that found his proposal is “not mathematically possible.”

Posted by: KS blathers | September 25, 2012 at 09:34 AM

That statement makes absolutely no sense and is why your side is losing another election.

Observer

To say there are uninformed voters is perhaps the greatest understatement ever made. Informed voters have likely made up their minds already while those that have no clue will simply vote for the incumbent. Is it our duty or priviledge to vote, and is it not the same to be able to exercise our right not to vote. Think about it. Haha.
