Yes, that was a carnival. And it seems you now want a carnival based on Romney's wealth.

So if tomorrow a state, say, I don't know, Utah, says it's legal to be a polygamist and then Mitt Romney marries 5 other women you're going to say we can't talk about it because it's legal?

No, we don't want a carnival based on Romney's wealth. We want tax returns. It's very simple.
If Romney releases his tax returns and it shows he did pay 13.smth% as he said, there's nothing more to say. We're not going to start insisting Romney's tax returns are false, nor any other stupid stuff the conservatives like to do about Obama's birth cert.

You can talk about it all you want. Who ever said you couldn't? It's very simple. I have no idea why you introduced that idea.

Similarly you can demand tax returns all you want. He does not have to obey. Voters are free to decide what that means to them. It's very simple.

I am at a loss to understand why you keep insisting he must do something that he does not have to do.

Re: US presidential election 2012

Polls have them dead even at 46% a piece.

Truth is, we all know whoever has the biggest propaganda machine will win.

Me, I am waiting for the debates in October, when I can truly read the candidates.

Re: US presidential election 2012

I'm voting for Romney. I don't think he'll win, but maybe he can dig us out of this economical mess.

Your argument remains circular.

You argue that he does not have to do anything if that in itself is legal, and is allowed to do stuff at whim, if it's legal.

I never said Romney HAS to do it. All I said was there are things that people wouldn't do even if it's legal, such as tax evasion (legal) when running for president, and releasing tax returns (even though you don't have to.)

At the end of the day, I never said Romney has to return tax returns. Which is why I'm confused why you insist on bringing out the "you don't have to do it because its not required" argument.

Re: US presidential election 2012

A 2nd Obama term could be a disaster. Definitely prefer Romney this time although I'll still root for the LP.

Re: US presidential election 2012

A sanatorial candidate who happens to be a secret service agent has just TWICE described the Secret Service as a very promiscuous job. I guess he was one of the guys in Colombia.

Tom Smith, GOP Senate Candidate: Pregnancy From [R@pe] Similar To 'Having A Baby Out Of Wedlock'

Quote:
When a reporter asked Smith to clarify what kind of situation was similar to becoming pregnant from ****, the candidate responded, "Having a baby out of wedlock."

He added, "Put yourself in a father's position. Yes, it is similar."
I guess a situation where I willingly have sex with someone and one where I am forced to have sex with someone are very similar situations. I would totally understand if my dad couldn't tell the difference between the two situations.

People like him make Republicans look like a bunch of loonies.
