I did watch the debate last night

and I did not really recall Romney sounding or looking bitter during the last question, I guest each of us can draw our own conclusions

there is a clip of it in this link

Romney Scolds CNN's King: 'You Get to Ask the Questions You Want, I Get to Give the Answers I Want' | NewsBusters.org


a longer clip would show that he does eventuall address the question

Quote:
the biggest misconception about you?” Taking a page out of early Gingrich’s book, Romney treated it like a gotcha question: “you ask the questions you want– I give the answers I want.” He then proceeded to make the point that America needs “someone to lead the country” and said something about the Olympics. “If people think there is something else in my background, that they don’t want to vote for me, that’s up to them,” he continued, alluding perhaps to Obamacare.

Oh, definitely. If I like a candidate I'm voting for them, age be damned.

But...

Yes. This would be nice, too. I'd just like to look at Congress and see a little more variety-not just in age, but in gender and race and so on as well. And younger candidates are generally likely to get younger voters, because, well, they feel like the candidate has some idea of what their generation's concerned with.

During a 2008 “Press & People of Faith in Politics” forum, Rick Santorum described to the Democratic Party as “the party of Woodstock,” and accused lawmakers of “prey[ing] upon our most basic primal lusts.” Asked to name a couple of words he’d heard attached to religion and politics in his years in the Senate, Santorum listed “moderate,” “ultra-conservative,” “liberal,” and “zealous” before launching into a full-on tirade against Democrats:

“Woodstock is the great American orgy. This is who the Democratic Party has become. They have become the party of Woodstock. The prey upon our most basic primal lusts, and that’s sex. And the whole abortion culture, it’s not about life. It’s about sexual freedom. That’s what it’s about. Homosexuality. It’s about sexual freedom.”

Quote:
. For a few decades we had knockdown, drag-out fights about how the sexual revolution was going to shake out, but now it’s sort of a done deal.

We’ve reached a national consensus. People in the educated class talk like social progressives and behave like traditionalists. People in the less educated classes talk like social conservatives and behave like libertines. Nearly everybody is cool with things like contraception. Most people want to restrict abortion without making it impossible and we’re kind of exhausted by the fight that never goes anywhere.

To me the thing that took the stuffing out of the culture wars is that the social fabric began to repair. Teenage pregnancy rates are down. Abortion rates are down. Crime is down. There are problems with the social fabric but they no longer have to do with the sexual revolution.

When Rick Santorum talks about this stuff in the way he does, it’s theology, not sociology. And believe me, there are very few Americans who are strongly theological, even the ones who attend services every week. ~ David Brooks

Who Decided That This Election Should Be About Sex? - NYTimes.com


i know quite a few people who were saved from this conservative cycle of unprotected sex, early pregnancy, quick marriage, unhappy marriage, affairs, divorce, second marriage, second pregnancy, second divorce, only by the fact that they were gay.

i kind of love that.

Irvine, that bolded part in your quote from Brooks there is interesting. I think it's pretty spot on, too. I think progressively, but my own lifestyle could definitely be perceived as rather traditional. And I know some conservative people who would have to take a long, hard look in the mirror before they go around judging others for their "sins".

I still can't get over the fact that New Gingrich won a state's primary because he cheated on his wives.


Step 1: Cheat on Wives
Step 2: Dodge question by yelling at moderator asking question and going off on a diatribe against the media
Step 3: Win primary




Gotta admit, the guy knows that his base acts like petulant children as much as he does.
