    And the right-of-center magazine homes in, most of all, on his reckless, Bush-Cheney economics:

    "Far from being the voice of fiscal prudence, Mr Romney wants to start with huge tax cuts (which will disproportionately favour the wealthy), while dramatically increasing defence spending. Together those measures would add $7 trillion to the ten-year deficit. He would balance the books through eliminating loopholes (a good idea, but he will not specify which ones) and through savage cuts to programmes that help America’s poor (a bad idea, which will increase inequality still further). At least Mr Obama, although he distanced himself from Bowles-Simpson, has made it clear that any long-term solution has to involve both entitlement reform and tax rises. Mr Romney is still in the cloud-cuckoo-land of thinking you can do it entirely through spending cuts: the Republican even rejected a ratio of ten parts spending cuts to one part tax rises. Backing business is important, but getting the macroeconomics right matters far more."


    GOTTA LOVE THE LINE:

    "MR. ROMNEY IS STILL IN CLOUD-CUCKOO-LAND of thinking you can do it entirely through spending cuts."

    Did you guys get together in the conservaposse treehouse and divide up who would do what during the election cycle?

    OK, SouthBeach and Socalfitness, you guys create constant new sock accounts that post increasingly vituperative insults about RJ liberals (i.e., anyone to the left of Attila the Hun). Check.

    Jockfever, post weird biblical shit and call RJ liberals (anyone who's not a Pentecostal snake handler) mentally ill. Check.

    Freedomisntfree, you tell 'em all they can't tell you what to do just cause you're gay. And be sure to taunt them with girly taunts, that always gets 'em riled up. Check.

    Riddler, you confuse them with lots and lots and lots of words that sound kinda smart - they don't have to be, really, but if you post walls of text that will keep them off guard. Check.

    CJAZ, you be the "moderate" one, but when you're too tired to give a substantive reply just keep your tick tock meme going. That'll scare 'em into voting Republican! Check.

    Tood,

    Is that your best rebutall?


    Sorry, Tood, you really should actually read the policies you think you're supporting......

    ....rather than doing your best Kim Kardashian impersonation.

    YOU are a fully grown adult......with presumably a high school education...

    ......and yet your clock is your only idea of commentary.

    Anyone who says that they're voting for Romney because of his economic plan is just phoning in a "legit" excuse to hide their obvious racism.

    Hey, I was just thinking you might want some fresh material to use during your 16 hours a day here.

    And knowing that we can expect nothing more than your little clock, why don't you kick back and take a break.

    There's really no need for your lightning fast responses------

    Geez, try that super-responsiveness for your clients.

    They might be more impressed than your audience here.

    Are you fucking kidding me? So the whole reason ~48% of the population is voting for Romney is because they're racists? icon_rolleyes.gif

    It because of crap like this that this country's politics is in such a mess...

    An NO, I'm not supporting Romney.

    MITT had one reason----and ONLY ONE REASON to justify his campaign.

    He claimed to "Understand The Economy".

    However, MITT has been proved, repeatedly, to be FULL OF SHIT....in regards to what he's presenting as his economic plan.

    Add that to his inability to tell the truth, the same truth to two different audiences........and we have to conclude that

    MITT HAS BEEN A HUGE FUCKING WASTE OF TIME.

    If Romney is elected he will slash tax rates for the super rich, increase military spending, then leave our country stuck with a huge increase in the deficit.
    He will blame Democrats by saying, "well, they wouldn't cut spending enough, so that's that."
    Republicans care a lot about lowering the deficit, until they get into office. Then they suddenly start thinking like their hero Dick Cheney, who said "deficits don't matter."

    Romney doesn't have an economic plan. "Ill cut taxes for myself, and trust me on everything else" is not an economic plan.
