And lest I forget...

"The development of a child is enhanced by having a mother and father. Such a family is the ideal for the future of the child and for the strength of a nation. I wonder how it is that unelected judges, like some in my state of Massachusetts, are so unaware of this reality, so oblivious to the millennia of recorded history. It is time for the people of America to fortify marriage through Constitutional amendment, so that liberal judges cannot continue to attack it.

"Europe is facing a demographic disaster. That is the inevitable product of weakened faith in the Creator, failed families, disrespect for the sanctity of human life and eroded morality."

This is scary shit to me.

I loved how he said a Democratic president would turn our country into "the France of the 21st century". To quote John Stewart, "That's funny, I thought France was the France of the 21st century." Apparently, Mitt's up there with George when it comes to intellect.

Executive, executive, executive. How hard is that?

(Apparently, extremely difficult for him.)

I used to have one of those calendars too, one of my favorite birthday gifts.

So true. I was in 6th grade the first time around, and I thought there was something off about Florida. Then, when 2004 came around, I stayed up all night listening to the returns, and when they called Ohio for Bush, I started crying. I couldn't believe that our country could be that blind to what he had done and elect him to another term.

Like you, I try not to think about the fact that he's still in office, and I focus on the upcoming election as a source of relief from his madness.

I love it. It also has a countdown until January 20, 2009.

Jon Stewart's response to Mitt's speech was great.

I loved it! I actually posted it in the Colbert thread in Zoo Station (because I couldn't search for the Daily Show thread). It's one of the best things I've seen on there in a long time.

No, that would be Mitt Romney's speechwriter. That really is one of the worst political speeches I've seen in years.

This is scary shit to me.
This remarks are stupid beyond infinity.
Those people should finally start getting some education.
Europe is not facing a demographic disaster. There are countries with low birth rates, that will undergo significant changes in the coming years and decades. There are other countries with high birth rates.
And first and foremost. Those countries with the highest birth rates are those that are the most liberal, such as the Scandinavian countries.
The countries with the lowest birth rates are those that are the most conservative, the most religious, and the least progressive when it comes to women career opportunities, e.g. Germany, Spain, Italy, Greece or France.

Before Mitt Romney comments on Europe the next time he should attend school again.

That's what struck me about his speech. The bulk of it seemed utterly juvenile and displayed a clear lack of understanding of the issues. And on top of it all it was petty. A vote for the democrats is a vote for surrendering to terror? Give me a fucking break.

Romney could have easily gotten his point across on the GWOT without accusing the other side of surrender. Comments like that make it impossible for two sides to work together or even acknowledge any progress made. A very disappointing part of his speech.

Same here. But he left out the part about wiretapping mosques, he should have put that in too.

Torture and don't shed a tear over it, that isn't Presidential

No, Mitt Romney's an idiot and for no apparent reason you thought it a good idea to support him.
