Romney's a dirty politician. There's two things a dirty politician does in such a situation:

either

1. Ignores the statement
2. Agrees with the statement

Be thankful he chose choice #1.

At least John McCain had the guts to do it, and probably felt some sort of moral imperative to do so. You can't argue with crazy, true that-but when you're running for President you should at least appear to have certain standards of decency.

I think it's pretty clear that Mitt Romney's standards are pretty low.

I'm not giving Romney any credit whatsoever. He should have responded how McCain did.

How to put the beer down? You've got to finish it first.

on one hand he's probably thinking he shouldn't even dignify such ignorant statements with a response. but i do think it'd be better if he corrected these people. regardless though, kudos to romney for actually saying he disagreed with them.

and kudos to the peefster for starting the process of registering to vote. i'm lucky, it's so easy in my state. it works through your driver's license. you have to tick a box when you get/renew your license and that's it. so as soon as i turned 18, i was all set.

Good article in the Economist: The tea party: Another moderate shown the door | The Economist

Quote:
UNLIKE colleagues such as Bob Bennett, a senator from Utah unceremoniously dumped by the Republican Party in 2010, Dick Lugar was not caught off guard. He had known for well over a year that he would face a strong, tea-party backed rival in the primary for the Senate seat he has held for the past 35 years. He planned accordingly, voting more conservatively, amassing a large war-chest and cranking up his get-out-the-vote operation. Nonetheless, yesterday Mr Lugar lost the primary by a whopping 20-point margin, to Richard Mourdock, Indiana’s state treasurer and a hero to many tea-partiers.

...


Whoever prevails in November, the Senate will have lost another moderate Republican. The New York Times has calculated that 78% of the more moderate half of the Republican caucus in the Senate in 2007 has left office, compared with just 39% of the conservatives. After this week, the few that remain will be more fearful than ever of a primary challenge from the right. That is a recipe, as Mr Lugar put it, for “an unrelenting partisan mindset” marked by “reflexive votes for a rejectionist orthodoxy and rigid opposition to the actions and proposals of the other party”. The results will be frustrating not just for the tea party, but for everyone.

Yeah, real easy to register in Florida as well. They come through all the high school senior classes and give you a basic slip to register, or pre-register so that you're automatically registered when you turn 18. Alternatively you can just regiser with your license at the DMV.

what address is on your license? can you go 'vote by mail' if so pick the one where you receive your mail.

but, only pick one, unless you want to be a poster boy for the GOP voter fraud campaign
