Rim shot!

We've got to hand it to whoever came up with "Romnesia."

It's almost as good as "death tax."

Just the latest attempt to distract from a failed record and lack of any 'Forward.' plan for the next four years. Let's hope we don't have to hear much more about binderrrrzzzz.

The binder thing was a waste of time. However, I would read Romney's approach to saving one of the Bain firms after he and his buddies looted it on the way out the door.

Here's a taste from Rolling Stone's article called "The Federal Bailout That Saved Mitt Romney"

"Mitt Romney likes to say he won't 'apologize' for his success in business. But what he never says is 'thank you' – to the American people – for the federal bailout of Bain & Company that made so much of his outsize wealth possible.

According to the candidate's mythology, Romney took leave of his duties at the private equity firm Bain Capital in 1990 and rode in on a white horse to lead a swift restructuring of Bain & Company, preventing the collapse of the consulting firm where his career began. When The Boston Globe reported on the rescue at the time of his Senate run against Ted Kennedy, campaign aides spun Romney as the wizard behind a 'long-shot miracle,' bragging that he had 'saved bank depositors all over the country $30 million when he saved Bain & Company.'

In fact, government documents on the bailout obtained by Rolling Stone show that the legend crafted by Romney is basically a lie. The federal records, obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, reveal that Romney's initial rescue attempt at Bain & Company was actually a disaster – leaving the firm so financially strapped that it had 'no value as a going concern.' Even worse, the federal bailout ultimately engineered by Romney screwed the FDIC – the bank insurance system backed by taxpayers – out of at least $10 million. And in an added insult, Romney rewarded top executives at Bain with hefty bonuses at the very moment that he was demanding his handout from the feds."


It’s a great line; it cracked everyone up on both sides of the aisle. It conveys the dem message in one brilliant comedic word. We have only good laughs and gaffes to look forward to at this point in the election. Neither candidate is going to say anything specific. At this point they seem more afraid of offending the undecided than trying to sway them. It is little more now than a sporting contest, and the winner will be the one making the fewest errors in the final minutes of the game. Everthing mentioned by Bill may be true, but no one still undecided is going to have time to get that deep or care.

It is also far too late for any undecided voters to learn how to read.

How about Obamaphasia?

The ability to balme everyone else for everything that went wrong the past 4 years and how he couldn't do anything even if he was President.

God are these campaigns or stand-up routines anymore? America deserves something better than these two clowns.

"Romnesia", "binders" - I think Obama believes he's running for student body president.

Its amazing that on Letterman he can't remember that the national debt is now 16 trillion, but he has time to come up with stupid words like this. More proof that the Obama presidency is a failure.

One pirate ship shooting at the other. America is being looted and looted good. I doubt the currency will survive much past April.

Regardless of upon whom you will place your worthless vote, prepare for the "Argentina" solution soon next year.

This political campaign is brought to you by the letter "O" and the number "$12,000,000,000,000".

Mitt and his minions do not support equal rights, equal pay for equal work, gun control, universal health care for all Americans or a woman's right to choose whatever health care she and a doctor fell she may need.
His dippy wife thinks that going on a "religious mission" to Paris to convert the French to the LDS church is the same thing as going to serve in the military.
"Romnesia" runs in the family.
I may look into investing in burkas if Mitt wins. Women will have to say home, and cover up if they are allowed to go outside at all.

eye roll..

"I may look into investing in burkas if Mitt wins. Women will have to say home, and cover up if they are allowed to go outside at all."

Because all the women in Salt Lake City wear burkas. It's a well-known fact!

It is kind of stupid - real 7th grade stuff.

Portland Native, your false accusations against Romney are Obama-nable.

"I may look into investing in burkas if Mitt wins. Women will have to say home, and cover up if they are allowed to go outside at all."

Really, is that your best attempt at a joke?

Or maybe, this is your parody of Obama sycophants?

If the latter, you really need to dial it down a bit, so that you look more like MSNBC's Chris "Tingle" Matthews plus 10%... that way it is somewhat realistic.

But since I doubt you are mocking Obama-is-messiah fanatics, you might get some tutoring from Bill on the joke-front. You know, so the Jerk-Store doesn't call, saying they ran out of you.

Portland Native, your false accusations against Romney are Obama-nable.

Depends on which version of Etch-a-Sketch Romney you're talking about. As of right now, this very moment, Portland Native is right on. Of course that can, and probably will, change at any moment.

One theory is that the "Romnesia" canard is merely preparing the battlespace for Gloria Allred, who is getting ready to trot out the gal who didn't like Romney's counseling about abortion some years ago. They used the same Romnesia term back then...

I hope it's true. Gloria Allred... the biggest joke of all.

The Empty Suit Brigade has to talk about something as they sure as hell don't want to talk about their record and lack of vision.

Soccer moms in Ohio are the deciders this time around. And it 's pretty obvious who they'll go for. The only reason Obama won there in 2008 is because John McCain looked too much like a nursing home resident compared to a sweet-talking tall-dark-handsome young Harvard-educated blah blah.

Now they will just pick the better-looking one of the two who SO obviously has it way more together than the TelePrompter-in-chief.
And so while I usually dislike the fact that the gender to which I belong is generally speaking inferior to the other one, in many important respects, in this case, I don't mind the fact that women tend to vote under the influence of pulp fiction fantasies.

Sure is a lot of wackiness going on. Burkas and pulp fantasies? Really? Laugh.

The only thing that concerns me is this idea that since Obama sucks people should vote for Romney. That's just bad thinking.

Or maybe not, I guess neither candidate makes a very good affirmative case this time around.

Having a Republican president would likely break the gridlock in DC. So that'd be interesting, probably really bad, but at least interesting.

Almost as funny as "Obamanomics".
