It is so over for Willard.
He can redeem himself with Obama Hate.

Raging Moderate, by Will Durst:

It’s time to start worrying about Mitt Romney. Seriously. The guy may just be running the worst campaign ever. And yes, that includes the McDLT, print ads for organic hemp underwear and France in ’39. Not to mention McCain/Palin in ’08. Which currently holds the gold standard for lousy campaigns. Sure to be a Hall of Fame inductee in a couple years.

Willard has taken bad to a whole new level. Bad like a dumpster behind a fish market during a garbage strike bad. Bad like a three-dollar Dark Knight Rises DVD bought off a Times Square cardboard table with Albanian subtitles bad. Bad like Todd Akin at a NARAL benefit bad. Bad doubled down. Beyond breaking bad to the point of broken bad.

And every time the former Governor of Massachusetts opens his mouth, it gets worse. He’s tone deaf, tongue tied, logically challenged and as approachable as a near-sighted porcupine in heat. The Anti Ray Romano — Nobody Loves Mitt.

So uncomfortable around real people, you can practically hear him whisper “icky, icky, icky,” under his breath while shaking hands at rallies. You know there’s an aide with a bottle of hand sanitizer waiting for him on the bus. Maybe even a 55-gallon drum connected to a shower head.

Got caught on a secret video calling 47 percent of those real people moochers and malingerers. Shirking, entitled victims dependent on the government for food. Food. Mmmm. That’s us. Just can’t get enough of that government cheese. You know what this country needs? A good five-cent government cracker.

The impression is that, 1: he was pandering to his rich donor buddies or, 2: the poster child for the 1 percent really believes what he said. Either way — awkward! And that massive pounding sound you hear is a herd of stampeding elephants running away from what they fear might be contagious.

Said he wouldn’t concern himself with that 47 percent, which depresses his most ardent supporters, because “Hell, that’s more than half!” One major problem with insulting 47 percent of the American public is that at least 58 percent of them worry that you think they’re part of that 47 percent, and you know 112 percent of America believes that. They do. Bet you $10,000.

The video’s release obscured the Romney campaign’s much-ballyhooed new design to sharpen its message. Would have been interesting to see how many truckloads of flint they were going to use to try and put an edge on that much smoke. Honing fog.

His own staffer warned us. The Etch-a-Sketch has been turned upside down. Prepare to be shaken. Problem is, you keep rebooting something as stiff as Mitt and it starts short-circuiting all over the place. Romney 8.0. Better than Romney 7.0. Now with Desperation.

Maybe it’s the extra-large silver spoon in his mouth that keeps him from seeing the view from the middle class. Can’t understand why they don’t pull themselves up by the bootstraps like he did when his daddy loaned him his first million.

With the debates still to come, there’s time to turn this race around. But this far in, it’s like turning the Titanic. After hitting the iceberg. And the helm is underwater. Face it, if Bain Capital were running Mitt’s campaign right now, they’d close it down, fire him and hire some Chinese guy to do it better and cheaper.

    By any rational standard, a candidate so demonstrably out of touch on every issue, who has been caught in more bad lies than Tiger Woods has had in his entire career, would never have gotten as far as a nomination, much less have any chance of winning an election.

    But what concerns me, and should continue to concern anyone who has the slightest respect for the concept of Democracy, is the ongoing Right Wing effort at voter suppression. We all saw in 2000 how suppression of even a few thousand voters brought Florida close enough for the Supreme Court to steal, and this time around we stand a good chance of losing as many as five million legal voters. The Republicans have long known that the only way they can win an election is to cheat, and this year is going to be a true test of whether we are still a free society or if it's already over and the Koch Brothers now own the United States of America.

    "Why do people continue to vote for these Republican tools"? I ask myself that question all the time. I'm sure other Americans do also as well as people in other countries.

    What do you expect from the worst GOP---Ever.
  • William 2012/09/25 23:28:11
    Well, there are 5 sets of people here:
    The first set would vote for anyone with an "R" after their name, no matter their political leanings.
    The second would vote for Romney because he's the anti-incumbent Republican.
    The third would vote for Obama even if it was proven that he was a big fan of Hitler.
    The fourth will vote for Obama out of disgust for Romney.
    The fifth set sees both camps as unacceptable and will vote third party, write-in/protest or cave to the "don't throw your vote away" cult at the last minute. Either way, the American tax payer gets ripped off.

    As bad of a president as Dubya was, at least he ran a semi-competent campaign.

    When he came out here to Virginia, he hung out at the Raceway one night. The guy is seriously into cars. A couple of people I know met him out there and said that he seemed very comfortable and just kind of "regular guy".
    I'm not sure where all these claims of "disassociation" are coming from. If you don't agree with the guy, fine. You are certainly entitled to your opinion. But him not agreeing with you doesn't make him some Howard Hughesian misanthrope.
    I think that his campaign staff sucks though. They could do a far better job.
  • fisherman 2012/09/25 02:10:21
    no one , and i mean no one can wage a mud slinging war like the dems .

    Don't be angry. They're just following the Republican playbook. The GOP are the real masters of mud-slinging.

    a fish rots from the head down obama .
  • Guru_T_... fisherman 2012/09/26 20:38:15
    Then you right-wingers must be rotten from head to toe. I usually make it a point to avoid RWNJs excrement-based opinions. The stench is revolting.
  • fisherman Guru_T_... 2012/09/28 02:19:30
    come on matey , you must love huffing that RWNJ aroma ....it smells like victory . why else do you keep coming back for more ?
  • Guru_T_... fisherman 2012/09/28 03:43:04 (edited)
    LOL! You really need to stop huffing the jenkum. The only victory I'm smelling is coming from the Obama camp. Oh, and if you're looking for a mate, try the men's room at your local airport. I'm positive that you'll find many of your fellow conservatives hanging out hoping to get a BJ from morons like you.

    No temper here, just amusement that you can be so incredibly ignorant. I'm just reminding you of your options. I have no messiah, just a better candidate than Willard and I'm quite sure that you already know how to give a blow job. You can go back to huffing your fermented excrement now. Willard has a snowball's chance in hell of winning in November. Get used to President Obama being around until January 2017. It's going to happen.
  • fisherman Guru_T_... 2012/09/29 03:25:44
    well if thats the case and your savoir does win i dont think you will ever have to worry about losing him again as he will declare himself president for life . you seem to have a perverted bent when it comes to smoking poles and smelling crap ...no doubt one of the pillars of liberalism . there is no more i can do to call attention to your extremely low self esteem than you already have by your continued support of failure .hang on to those food stamps because when mittens wins you know you have to go and work for em dont ya ?
