Romney is saving the 'big guns' for after the nomination.

When he debates Obama he will unleash:

"I will bet you $100,000. !"

it's not about race

it's about race and religion*, ask Mitt.





* clinging to their guns, to keep safe from the minorities and non-christians.

I've noticed based on this debate and some past performances, he's not that good thinking on his feet and gets flustered easily. Perry was able to rile him up and get under his skin, he and Newt were trading broadsides all night. I'd imagine he knew Perry was dead wrong and wanted to get him which clouded his judgment. If he would have had time to think he wouldn't have 'bet 10k'. Hell, if he would have bet one million I don't think it would received this kind of attention.

If it's some sort of gambling issue well he even abstains from coffee. When Mitt tries to be funny off the cuff it almost always seems weird, awkward, or dumb. That's just his personality.
Exactly, if he would have bet something stupid like one million, people would have figured out it was in jest. Kind of like how kids always say to each other "I bet you one million dollars you're wrong!" Betting 10k is believable because with that kind of net worth, he probably throws that money around all the time on stupid bets like that.

On a similar note, I thought his response to the question on growing up poor or having to make his own personal ends meet was answered quite well. I was nervous on how he would respond, but he basically acknowledged that he grew up in a family where money wasn't a problem, but that his life experiences have made him able to empathize with those less fortunate.
I thought that was an excellent way to answer the question as well.

I saw that yesterday, and I think he's got a good point. I'm going to lose a lot of respect and support that I have for the Tea Party if they end up rallying behind Gingrich and he gets the nomination. He deviates from everything that I think the Tea Party stands for.

See, I find this interesting because you and Glenn are just now finally seeing what we've been saying for years. I hope he opens some eyes.

Glenn Beck only cares for theatre and melodrama to fund his lifestyle. I only find this video entertaining when I think of his devotees seeing it.

Beck co-opted the Tea Party and threw it out like a used tissue just like the GOP top brass.

And in today's awkward campaign video, Mittens explains to a Vietnam veteran why gay marriage shouldn't be allowed, then realizes the veteran is gay.

Poor Mittens, he's having a bad week. He just can't catch a break!

he was also obviously also sucking up to a veteran for brownie points. double hilarity.

just as gay veterans kept Perry safe while he was executing hundreds of people in Texas, so did they keep Mittens safe while he was plundering companies for hundreds of millions of dollars.

I find it odd how high the bar has been raised for Romney and how low the bar has been set for Newt.

If I were Romney, I would be tempted to cede to Newt and watch him flounder.

to think, it all started a couple of weeks ago when Romney was crushed during a softball interview with Fox News, of all places. not a terribly high bar.

Or odd how effective the media was at tearing apart Cain for extra-marital play but seeming ignoring n00t's serial adultery?

you'd think a man leaving terminally ill women would be worse than a black man schtupping a bunch of white women.

FactCheck.org : The Gingrich Divorce Myth


QUESTION

Did Newt Gingrich ask his former wife to sign divorce papers on her deathbed?

ANSWER

For almost three decades, Newt Gingrich has been dogged by a story that he served his first wife divorce papers while she lay in a hospital bed battling — or in some versions dying from — cancer. It didn’t happen that way.

In fact, Gingrich, the presidential candidate and former House speaker, and his first wife, Jackie Battley, had already separated and were planning to divorce before she was hospitalized. And while Battley had earlier undergone cancer surgery, this time she was in the hospital recovering from surgery to remove a tumor that — according to one of the couple’s daughters — was benign. Battley isn’t talking to reporters, but she’s still very much alive.

He left his terminally-ill wife.

Irvine mentioned nothing about deathbed divorce paper myth.
