5 reasons we can never let Mitt Romney become President of the United States

[bold][italic]Just For Men isn’t just Mitt’s favorite hair product, it’s his campaign slogan[/italic][/bold]

I have only one prediction about the rest of 2012: It will be confusing.

827,000 private sector jobs have already been created since January 1, 2012. And apparently, we’re supposed to believe this is bad—compared to the 600,000+ were we losing a month when the President took office. Mitt Romney says he’d be creating 500,000 jobs a month. And the only President to ever do that for more than one month was Mitt Romney’s new hero — Jimmy Carter.

But there is some seriously bad news we have to deal with or we’ll be hoping the Mayans were right: voter registration is down among Hispanics and blacks, core parts of any winning Democratic coalition.

So first and foremost, register that ass to vote. THEN tell a friend to do the same and pass it on.

Republicans know they only win if you don’t vote, so they’re making it harder to vote than it is to buy a gun. Online registration is our best way around this.

So why does this election matter? I’ll boil it down to some essentials:


by Anonymousreply 3111/06/2012

[bold]1. As President, Mitt Romney will pick at least two Supreme Court Justices.[/bold]

The Ginny Thomas Court has already thrown out campaign finance sanity and seems about to crush America’s best hope for universal health care. In the next few years, this same court will likely decide on abortion rights, gay marriage, endless digital privacy issues and more. Romney will appoint Justices as bad or worse than Bush’s choices — Roberts and Alito? Why? Because he’ll have to.

[bold]2. Mitt Romney will have to be more extreme than George W. Bush to avoid a primary challenge in 2016.[/bold]

This week Mitt Romney’s campaign accepted the resignation openly gay spokesman, claiming the pressure from the religious right hounded him out. The self-described “yokel” behind that pressure, Bryan J. Fischer, then derided Mitt for buckling. “How will he stand up to North Korea?” The fact is Mitt will stand up to foreign nations in an overly aggressive way because he can’t stand up to his own base. George W. Bush never had to prove his conservative bona fides. Mitt will have to every day he’s in office. That’s why he’ll defund Planned Parenthood and roll back progress for gays and lesbians before the Bryan J. Fischers can even snap their fingers.

[bold]3. Women will pay more for less health care, seniors will pay more for prescription medication and at least 45,000 Americans will die every year for lack of insurance.[/bold]

Romney’s key pledge is to repeal ObamaCare. Bam. 30,000,000 Americans who won’t get health care, thousands of kids off their parents’ policies and kids once again denied coverage for pre-existing conditions. Then under the Ryan budget, millions more will lose their Medicaid and everyone on Medicare who is under 55 will pay more for their insurance. The Godfather of Obamacare has to overcompensate to prove he’s an actual Republican and the result will be agony and death for the most vulnerable Americans.

[bold]4. More tax breaks for the rich, less oversight for Wall Street, more massive debt.[/bold]

The Ryan/Romney budget increases the debt while slashing the social safety net. The question will be what do we do when we still have a huge debt, no services left to cut and Republicans who have vowed on a stack of dollar bills to never increase taxes on anyone ever. What happens then when under-regulated, under-policed Wall Street bankers blow up our economy again?

[bold]5. The tide of war will rise again.[/bold]

What will Mitt Romney’s foreign policy look like when he’s done criticizing the President for the most successful foreign policy in decades? A lot like George W. Bush’s. We know this because Romney’s advisors are Bush’s advisors, the guys who think the only problem with the Iraq War was not enough “Shock and Awe.” With bin Laden gone, Mitt is desperately in search of enemies and with the help of apocalyptic friends like Netanyahu, he’ll certainly find them.

"1. As President, Mitt Romney will pick at least two Supreme Court Justices."

And a bunch of lower court judges.

7. Poor Bo will end up riding on top of the Presidential motorcade if Obama leaves him.

by Anonymousreply 905/15/2012

It would be wrong to assume that minorities are going to turn out in big numbers this year. We need to get out the vote. Obama has been a disappointing president in many ways but Romney must be kept away from the WHite House at all costs.

I am sure Obama has a trimmer body than yours and probably a more generous endowment, Mr Moobalicious at R6.

He's a proven bully.

He's a proven & registered animal abuser.

He's a documented liar.

He's a proven flip-flopper.

Sadly he does have a core. LDS.

You have to hand it to the Repugs: even if they despise their candidate, they all rally behind them and vote in a bloc. While Democrats will split and vote Green or Libertarian- or not at all.

No way should Mitt Romney be running nearly 50/50 in the polls against an incumbent POTUS.

Obama raised $75 million in July, Mitt Romney raised $101 million.

"Gallup: Romney Converting More 2008 Voters Than Obama"

"A new analysis from Gallup shows that President Obama is losing more support to presumtpive Republican nominee Mitt Romney from his 2008 total than the president is taking from Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) 2008 voters. The data shows that Obama is retaining 86 percent of his 2008 voters and taking 5 percent of McCain’s 2008 haul. Romney is converting 9 percent of Obama’s 2008 supporters and retaining 92 percent of McCain’s base. From Gallup:

The vast majority of U.S. voters are remaining consistent in their voting preferences between 2008 and 2012, be it for Barack Obama or the Republican presidential candidate. But loyalty to Obama is slightly less than loyalty to the Republican candidates, resulting in a more competitive race at this point than in the final 2008 results."


There are going to be a lot of people who like Obama, but just can't vote for him. They attach him to this economy, and they can't bring themselves to re-elect him.

It's scary to think about Mitt Romney become president.

Privatized medicare and social security?

I won't vote for the rich bastard!

by Anonymousreply 1910/08/2012

Republicans smell victory and Democrats are already turning on each to blame for the debate debacle. It is totally unreal how much one week and one debate can make or break a race.

I can think of at least 95 more reasons.

Mitt Romney is a Worthless Piece of Shit!!! He would turn our country into a Mormon Safe Haven with his CULT STATUS. Oh yeah, it you're not rich, you're not worth saving. Only the Rich get into heaven you know. We'll all have to convert to mormonism. YIKES!!!!

He gives corrupt, flip-flopping, insincere, lying, and robotic polititians a bad reputation.

by Anonymousreply 2510/25/2012

Get real. That man could care less about the middle class and the poor. I you are not in the top 1 per cent of this country forget it. He is a professional liar who is rotten to the core. You think Bush was bad, put him in office. He will take our soles and devour us. U want to know more, pay attention to MSNBC and Current.They give the facts. He can"t bend, that means he has no soul. Watch the wife of his, they think they are royalty.

Reason Number TEN: Four years of that mealy, washed-out, insipid smile? GOD NO...

Number NINE: He'll have to give-up his day job.

Number EIGHT: Mormon underwear for EVERYONE!

Number SEVEN: '...Oh shit - whaddo I do now...?'

Number SIX: Has to have wife talk him up.

Number FIVE: Won't do Letterman!

NUMBER FOUR: Less than 24-hours after Tuesday night’s debate, a top adviser to Mitt Romney’s campaign switched his statement about whether the Republican presidential candidate would have supported the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act before it was passed by Congress and signed into law by President Obama in 2009. (ABC News’ Michael Falcone and Devin Dwyer)

NUMBER THREE: First name is Willard...

NUMBER TWO: According to Fox News, Romney admitted and publicly stated that he blames pornography for the shooting incidents that took place at Virginia Tech University.

And the number ONE reason to NOT vote for Mitt:'regrets not having more kids'.

Five Easy Post-Election Predictions (No Matter Who Wins)

1) The war on unions will continue. The Republicans are explicitly anti-union, while the Democrats are pro-union in words, but anti-union in practice. Obama’s much touted Race to the Top national education policy directly targets the heart of the teacher’s unions — the most powerful union in the country — by attacking seniority rights and restricting wages and benefits.

2) The war on the environment will continue. Both parties treat the environment like they do organized labor. The Republicans openly degrade it and the Democrats make pro-environment statements while practicing the opposite. Whoever wins will continue to pander to Big Coal, and they will continue to advocate for dangerous arctic and Gulf oil drilling, wreak havoc by shale “natural gas” drilling, and build the cross continental Keystone pipeline,

3) Wall Street will reign supreme. During the debates it was made clear that no further action against Wall Street was necessary. But the banks are bigger under Obama than they were under Bush, which means they are still “too big to fail,” ensuring future bailouts paid by taxpayers.

4) Post election national austerity cuts. The national deficit is the result of bank bailouts, foreign wars, and decades of continually lowering taxes for the rich and corporations. Obama and Romney both ignore these facts, and favor “trigger cuts” — massive cuts in jobs and social programs that would go into effect if Republicans and Democrats can’t agree on how many trillions of dollars of cuts to make (Obama’s proposed deficit cutting plan would make 4 $trillion in cuts; Paul Ryan wants 6 $trillion.)

5) Foreign wars will continue. Listening to Obama and Romney debate foreign war was very much a Pepsi/Coke style debate. Both candidates love Israel, hate Iran and Syria, lie about a “time table” for Afghanistan (no serious foreign policy pundit believes the U.S. is leaving Afghanistan in 2014). Both are for continued drone bombings of Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia which are obvious war crimes, while both candidates hypocritically accuse Syria of “human rights violations.” In short, both candidates argue over how best to push the Middle East and North Africa to the brink of regional war, without being blamed for it.

Romney may just as well win this. HuffPO has him leading. Either the repugs stole votes or the redneck/racists came out in multitudes. Fuck them, they wouldn't lift a finger to clean their front yards but they'd drag their dirty asses to vote out the black man in the White House.
