• AdLib : Sally, thanks for closing the VP bar with me again tonight! Sleep well and have a great weekend!

  • AdLib : Great to have you here, FC! It’s about closing time for Vox anyway. Have a great weekend!

  • foodchain : Geez, it’s midnight here and I just hopped in but early day tomorrow. so sorry to not be here more; it makes me feel better to be here

  • AdLib : BTW, according to current polling, Obama is ahead right now in states that would give him over 270 electoral votes and re-election…no t including toss up states. With 8.2% unemployment and a sluggish economy. How does Romney win in Nov if he can’t be ahead now?

  • foodchain : bad typist

  • foodchain : Sally, kudos for trying to do something I could even. Makes my hed hurt. Hugs for doing this

  • AdLib : Sally – Either way, will be glad to have it up on The Planet!

  • AdLib : FC – You’re right, the GOP Elite are trying to tell him what to do and how to deal with things, they’ve even told him he needs to replace his campaign team. Still, they are 100% behind him, they’re just frustrated that he’s so bad at campaigning and trying to get him to do the tactical things they think he should do.

  • SallyT : Okay, I think I may have rushed it though. I don’t think it is up yet. It says it is but it isn’t showing. So, as soon as I can, I will try to do it myself and if I can’t, you can clean it up for me and I will be appreciative.

  • AdLib : “Mitt Romney’s repeated claim that he played no part in executive decision-making related to Bain Capital after 1999 is false, according to Romney’s own testimony in June 2002, in which he admitted to sitting on the board of the LifeLike Co., a dollmaker that was a Bain investment during the period.”

  • foodchain : They aren’t closing ranks when they ask him to turn in tax returns and I’m guessing that they don’t know what they will look like, otherwise he would have already. This isn’t the 100% groupiness; maybe some of the big boys think his campaign should be run differently?

  • AdLib : Sally – Great. It is easy to embed, if you just click on the “Embed” icon or link at the site where the video is, it will copy to you clipboard and you just paste it into your comment. Happy to do it for you though.

  • AdLib : FC – Exactly, people get a bad feeling from him, the more they see him, the slimier he feels to them.

  • SallyT : AdLib, I can post that link to the video now. I will go to OtOt and you can inbed the video since I am to dumb to do that.

  • foodchain : Well that’s his problem. good hair or not, the words just don’t jive for many people. I don’t buy the poli hype of either side but I am hearing people say: “what would Mitt know about me?”

  • AdLib : FC – I don’t see that right now. They seem to have closed ranks around him, even if not with a lot of enthusiasm. They do think they have a chance to win with him and they did…though I think this could very well be the beginning of the end for Romney.

  • AdLib : How does Romney regain a mantle of trust that he has never had with most voters and has only further damaged over all the Bain stuff? I don’t see it.

  • foodchain : Ad, no, no, that the GOP doesn’t still belive that he can be elected so they are holding distance from him

  • AdLib : FC – What do you mean? If he was elected, they would oppose him in 2016? No to both, he won’t be elected and if he was, they wouldn’t put up opposition to him in 2016 because he would be a perfect puppet in the first place.

  • foodchain : Oh Ad for sure. I’ve seen corp mask face before and Mitt excels at it

  • foodchain : Is there any thought that the GOP might still throw Mitt under the bus for 2016

  • AdLib : FC – It is the mask of unethical people, laughing and smiling when faced with their lies and deceit. Romney is so obvious about it and so unconvincing, they always come off as so fake.

  • foodchain : Bito MMmmmmm. jealous.

  • AdLib : Bito – Enjoy, you deserve it!

  • bito : Ice cream break

  • AdLib : Foodchain – The Repubs have seen this before, leave the mines sitting primed to explode and they will. They want Romney to let the worst be known and hope it’s old news by Nov…Romney is too afraid to do it…so he’ll get to step on them in October or November. Works for me!

  • SallyT : He does, FC, and that laugh!

  • bito : Wow, she’s right fc, great observation.

  • foodchain : hey ad, good to be here even if for a little

  • foodchain : MY 85 yr old aunt noticed how Mitt smiles when he’s in trouble

  • AdLib : Hey Foodchain!

  • AdLib : Bito – From assaulting a kid because he thought he was gay to riding around with a police badge to harass others to being a bully at Bain, I don’t know if he has done anything ethical in his life.

  • AdLib : Sally – And isn’t Romney trying not to run on his record and just attack Obama? Crooks are the ones who are always concerned others will steal from them. BSers are the ones who accuse everyone else of BS. Romney is so damn transparent!

  • foodchain : Hey all, Gosh, JD Hayworth ( crew cut car salesman) saying do the taxes OH MY

  • AdLib : Sally – There are a number of Repubs calling for Romney to release his returns now so they explode in the Summer and aren’t an issue in the Fall. But Romney is taking such a beating now and he knows that his older returns will expose what a sleazeball he is so he won’t do it. Obama is a lucky guy, Romney is such an enormously flawed candidate and if he is truly being permanently wounded by Bain as I think he is right now, the advantage for Obama will only grow after the Dem Convention and the debates.

  • bito : Is there anything that Mitt has done that hasn’t come close to being unethical?

  • SallyT : Of course this asshole is saying that Obama can’t run on his record so he has to try to run on destroying Romney’s business history.

  • AdLib : This is why I can’t wait for the debates. Romney is a privileged brat, he’s not used to anyone challenging him or his lies. He is terrible in debates, even if when debating lunatics in the primary, he looked better because he was less insane, he will look like the fraud he is in the debates with Obama.

  • SallyT : J.D. Hayworth just said that he is hurting himself for not releasing his taxes. He should and get pass them. People moved on from the last ones he released. I don’t know if this guy is right there. There might be a lot more to see.

  • AdLib : I think it is inescapable that Obama will call for Romney to release his tax returns in a debate and Romney’s attempts to doubletalk on that and on the Bain stuff Obama will nail him on will make him look weak and shifty.

  • AdLib : With all this stuff swirling around Romney, he will be crushed by the demands for his tax returns for prior years. He knows that he can’t release them because they will show damaging things yet as Obama and others demand he does because they’re concerned that they would show damaging things…all he can do is cry “victim” against Obama. That isn’t going to play with indie voters.

  • SallyT : Well, there you go, I only need to see half as many!

  • AdLib : Sally – Romney gave McCain over 20 years worth of returns.

  • AdLib : Bito – Man, the sleazy connections to Romney are just piling up! It sure looks like he’s going to be just buried by all his dirty laundry as the months go by and he is such a poor candidate, all the money he depends on to buy elections won’t be enough to dig him out this time.

  • SallyT : Maybe so, but I still would like to see those 10 years he gave to McCain.

  • AdLib : Sally – I don’t think that’s the reason McCain picked Palin, he needed a stunt VP to have a prayer at winning so he went for her. Romney wouldn’t have helped him from being so far behind with months to go till he lost.

  • bito : her’s another one «link» it’s posted on toot

  • AdLib : Whoops, stepped away for a minute and missed your comment, Night Murph!
