Democrats for Romney?

I vacillate between thinking the Obama administration is really dumb or sporadically smart. They may be hoping for Mitt Romney to win the Republican nomination because his support seems to plateau at the 25% level. If he somehow gets the 40% or so needed to win a contested primary race, that other half of the Republican base may sit home enough to drag Obama across the finish line.

The wonky take of course is that Romney isn’t as “scary” as the conservative or Tea Party candidates and disaffected Democrats could see themselves voting for him. He’s also managed to capture a number of endorsements from Republicans who are not running for president or decided to stop. If there still was a smoke-filled room in the Republican Party, Romney’s name would emerge from it.

I’m note sure why independents would be crazy about this guy, but there is a reason for Democrats to vote for him. Sure, he’s got big money connections. He has a conservative agenda. He also may be as much of a crony as President Obama, but he has one advantage. He’s a Republican.

You see, the media is pretty much in the tank for Obama. The progressive and liberal organizations are as well. Even if Obama engages in activities that would be called out under a Republican president, they will be explained or ignored by the distributors of news. So, we might as well elect a Republican. That way, the people who previously swaddled their plastic Jesus will be filled with anger and vengeance. It’s a good way to keep the next administration honest. If the media can’t do their job with the messiah they want, then he needs to be taken away from them.

    LOL! But also *sigh* This is what my country has come to? I need a drink.

      Polygamists for Romney

      • WMCB says:

        I’m neither a polygamist nor a bigamist. I am a serial marrier, though.

        (Hey, it’s not my fault. They keep asking.)

        One partner is difficult enough. Personally I would like to live in a community where the women are in charge and they allow the men to visit and then leave in the morning.

        ‘Men Live Better Where Women Are In Charge’

        SPIEGEL ONLINE: What is life like for a man in a matriarchy?

        Coler: Men live better where women are in charge: you are responsible for almost nothing, you work much less and you spend the whole day with your friends. You’re with a different woman every night. And on top of that, you can always live at your mother’s house. The woman serves the man and it happens in a society where she leads the way and has control of the money. In a patriarchy, we men work more — and every now and then we do the dishes. In the Mosuo’s pure form of matriarchy, you aren’t allowed to do that. Where a woman’s dominant position is secure, those kinds of archaic gender roles don’t have any meaning.

        Marriage is not wanted in Mosuo people.

        SPIEGEL ONLINE: Does the concept of marriage exist for the Mosuo?

        Coler: Yes, the children are even threatened with it: “If you aren’t good, then we will marry you off.”

    The media support the establishment.

    Always.

    The latest CBS poll has Cain and Romney tied at 17%. The approval for Romney has been flat at 17%. He’s like plain mush, I’ll eat if that’s all there is and I don’t want to starve.

    ROFL! Thank you, Days, that’s brilliant.

    Romney won’t have money problems this time.

    • Dario says:

      I don’t believe Romney had cash problems in 2008 either. His problem has always been that he doesn’t attract voters. McCain was the one who had cash problems until he won NH.

  7. WMCB says:

    This has got to be one of the most offensive fucking things I have ever seen in my life, bar none. It literally makes me ill.

    White superior douchebag Lawrence O’ Donnell spends 5 minutes berating a 65-year-old fucking black man who grew up in Atlanta fucking Georgia on whether he quite did enough re: fighting for civil rights during his high school years.

    The snide superiority is jawdropping. From a weasly little white boy “journalist” who never lived Cain’s life or faced his challenges, it’s nauseating.

    I know many here disagree with me, but Romney can’t possibly win. He’s there for the express purpose of losing to Obama. Just like McCain. The Republican machine has decided. Don’t say I didn’t warn anyone.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I can’t get fired up about Romney, but if he’s the last man standing…..sigh.

      • Mary says:

        I suspect many Americans feel the same way you do, including me. It’s gonna be an anyone but Obama election this time.

        But they won’t stay home. They’ll vote.
