Did Romney just admit he is going to lose?

  1. He says 47% of Americans wont vote for him and he does not give a shit.

    You probably have 5% of Christian Americans who will not vote for a heathen Mormon.

    Add 2-3% of independents who dont like him.

    47 + 5% = 52% 52 + 2 = 54% wont vote for him.

    So in essence he pretty much admits to losing the race. Now it makes sense why he does not seem to be making much of an effort in is campaign.

    So Romney was the equivalent of a Stub quote for the GOP for this election cycle.

    There are inherent flaws in your data (as there always is when you post).

    First, he didn't say he didn't give a shit. Stop making up crap.

    You're assuming the 47% who don't pay tax and support Obama (per the Romney claim) will ALL show up on election day. Riiight.
     

  3. Nope he said he does not care.

    So all those Seniors collecting Medicare/SS and not paying taxes not show up to the polls? I think not. They get bussed en masse. They vote.

    He pretty much admitted he is going to lose in that speech.

    Please point to the time post in the released video where he said he doesn't care about those people.

    All I heard was he cannot waste his time trying to convince those people to vote for him. And he can't. Those people will not be persuaded to vote for him.

    Just like Obama knows he can't focus his time trying to convince those who despise him (of which there are quite a few) to vote for him. It's a polarized election and there is no swaying either side. The best that can be hoped for are the independents who still have not decided.

    NOTHING Romney said was damning or conciliatory to anyone but the liberal lunatic media or people without the IQ to understand what was said. Ahem.
     
  5. Romney didn't really say anything too shocking. What he stated is simply a well known fact.

    Did Romney say he was going to lose? I don't know. But I do suspect he knows it's a tough hill to climb. The media is now going full swing against him on every little thing.

    Essentially, American politics at this point is not between competing ideologies but Obama's cult of personality.

    You can have 20 million more people on food stamps, gas going up to 10 bucks, the official unemployment rate shooting to 15% and Obama will still have a good chance of winning. Have you seen a cult? Seen what happened at Waco? People are willing to die for their faith and their beliefs, much less paying a few more bucks for gas or not being able to get a job and at this point, it is definitely a faith.

    Look at the youth. They have the highest unemployment rate of college graduates in decades upon decades but I bet my bottom dollar that when all is said and done, they will still vote for Obama. They will not and cannot do otherwise, there isn't anymore free will for them.

    Debate with an Obama supporter on issues and you can get a vigorous discussion on issues but when you start talking about Obama, suddenly they go insane, its like an instant unearthly possession takes hold of them. They scream, they shout, they ask you to "respect" the president. This even occurs in seemingly educated and rational individuals.

    If mankind lasts for another 500 years and I had to type in an entry for Obamaism in an encyclopedia, this is what I would write:

    "A bizarre cult of the personality arising in the 3rd Millenium in the United States in which millions of people discarded all forms of rational thought and became mesmerized by the liquid delivery style of Senator and later President Barack Hussein Obama."

    One other thing, by the way. You seem so sure of yourself how the senior vote is going to go. I believe this to be a (nother) flawed hypothesis.
     
  7. Seniors on SS/Medicare dont pay taxes and Romney will not bother with them.

    Romney is just a Stub quote for this election cycle. I think the Republicans will put up a real candidate on the next cycle.


    Republicans are not that crazy about him either.

    You just throw these assertions out there as if they are fact. It's quite amusing.
     
  9. Yes, this election will be nice one, definitely a choice election. The battle lines this year are more sharp than I have ever seen since I have been voting. (1984-Reagan)

    The problem is that people are voting with more emotion, and a lot less fact.
