Nineteen days of campaigning left before and just one more televised debate with Obama before we elect a new US President and it's beginning to look as though Mitt has maybe more than a good and fair shot at becoming our next commander and chief.

And I worry about certain things but I also think he may be the best choice we've got. Oh, but regardless, I love the lurking double-bind.

As a TBM how much is the Mittster going to be influenced by their apocalyptic, end-times mentality? With Mitt as POTUS I can see Netanyahu leading him into a war with Iran. The tribe of Ephraim needing to support the tribe of Judah, as fellow Israelites.

When you believe you can not only become the next U.S. President but are actually taught by the LDS church that you will become God, well...

viewtopic.php?f=7&t=3769

A day ahead of the last debate, The Romney lighter than air advertising blimp fell from the heavens and crash landed in Florida.
But was it an act of God?

http://www.nationaljournal.com/2012-pre ... a-20121022

Looks as though tropical storm bands from Sandy may have contributed to the sudden emergency, heh-heh.

Last nights rebuttals left me noting his reactionary 'my way or the highway' rhetoric in regards to his foreign policy thoughts and concerns.... leading by showing the world a positive example would have suited me much better then him carrying a big stick like he intends to do. In the real multinational world its not a good choice..his arrogance shows through it all.

Based on what some focus group said, and some other remarks I've seen, I expect Romney to win. Some people say it will be by "only a million" one way or the other; some people say it will be a bigger win than that. I don't trust polls any more at all. There is too much frustration about jobs, gas prices, social security recipients getting letters from the government saying their cost of living has not increased, and I guess a general malaise. I will be surprised if Obama wins. I am curious what a Romney presidency would be like. I don't know, I just know I have to get ready for some changes. Whoever wins, I think things are going to change radically. Sometimes I think I'd like to move to Canada or Iceland.

He was Governor of Massachusetts & a LDS bishop- so he does indeed have leadership experience. But, his archaic language & oldschool Morg mindset does indeed make him laughable to mainstream America (nonLDS). An example from FB: Women for Obama vs. Moms for Mitt (hello, what about us "non-moms" who have chosen not to give birth due to being tired of raising everyone else's kids? We do all the work but get none of the credit)

MF Mitt, let the four years of fun (to watch) beginning to start get underway.

It's not just Romney. The language of both Romney and Obama is what you could hear 20 years ago. Very little of the rhetoric has changed. :(

I like it when one guy is in a double bind and we get a chance to see whatever it is he is made of.

I voted today.
I'm not going to say who specifically,
but I did cast votes for Libertarian and a couple of other parties.
Unfortunately for me, no Anarchist Party was listed.

What you all said, it will be an interesting, if not terrifying, four years, whoever wins. :)
I think I'll be holding my breath for at least the first year.

Wm. Law: "apocalyptic, end-times mentality?"

Assassination threats against Romney are on the increase, with little notice taken by the media. Apparently, the threats Obama is getting are holding steady.
Also, calls to riot across America if Romney wins, are spreading.
I don't think that will happen, and I don't think Romney has much more chance of being assassinated than Obama. Well, maybe some. But I don't think either one will be assassinated. I sure hope not!

Most of the threats read like they were written by elementary school drop outs.
Like some weird American zombie apocalypse -

Has Romney shown this side of maybe on some issues, being mostly changeable or about as perhaps malable as Gumby the original soft green reformable clay figurine?
In other words, the more perfected politician.

Even though this thread is 'old' it still has commenters. So here it is, maybe an answer to your question.
First, all those 'jobless' figures are cooked. The Fed Dept. of Labor (the people keeping those stats) admitted they did not include CA where the jobless rate is 'officially 11.6 percent. If you count out all those people that the unemployment bennies expired within the last 90 days, the unemployment rate much higher than 7.9 percent. Using the CATO institutes calculations (the expiration of unemployment benefits less than 90 days old), our real unemployment rate 8.9 percent. You can attribute any drop at this time of year to seasonal hiring, or the famous Christmas Rush. I see signs all over stores like Toys R Us, Walmart, (short list), hiring for seasonal help. oDumbo touting "Well, unemployment is down below 8 percent shows my plan is working." Really? His plan, hire more government workers. The only appreciable increase in the workforce over the last four years is in government, state and federal. oDumbo says "Manufacturing jobs are up." He lumps the minimum wage employee at McDonalds making a burger a 'manufacturing job." Many of the 'chronic' unemployed are opting to go on permanent disability.

I have a neighbor that is doing just that. He is not making what he did while employed, but now with his permanent disability he now is eligible for Food Stamps, MediCal and Medicare, mortgage assistance and reduced rates on his electricity and cable television. His cash and non cash income nets him $3,500 per month. Not bad. Food stamps are also on the rise, oDumbo and his minions in the house and senate (Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid), claim for every dollar in food stamps spent, generates $2.00 in economic activity. If food stamps are so GREAT, than everyone should be on them. Everyone should be on disability and Medi-Medi. No one should go to work, just lay around and watch Netflix streaming on the telly.

Now, oDumbo wants to create a "Business Secretary." oDumbo's answer to every problem is the creation of yet another layer of bureaucracy, more government employees. After all, those government employees pay union dues and union dues equals big campaign contributions. The CTA (Cal Teachers Association) has passed around over $250 million in the statehouse (Sacramento, CA) over the last 10 years.

oDumbo's 2010 state of the union he petitioned Congress to create another board (special board of economic advisors), Congress shot it down, so he proudly announced he was issuing an executive order to create that board. That right there told me oDumbo does not want to govern....he wants to rule like he is some type of King. Kings don't follow the law, they simply rule.

Want to know why gasoline is sooooo expensive? It has nothing....nothing to do with an upswing in economic activity, as oDumbo opines. oDumbo's buddy Shalom Benjamin Bernake (Federal Reserve Chairman) has simply ordered (yes ordered) the printing of another $600 Billion dollars in currency to be printed. Every time you print one dollar that is not backed by gold/silver or backed up in tax receipts you dilute the value of that dollar. Those evil oil companies (and everyone else that is raising prices) are reacting to the Feds dilution of the money supply. You see, if oDumbo took an econ class or a business class at Columbia it does not show as evidenced by his actions with regards to business or economic policies. oDumbo wrote, in the Harvard Law Review, "It's o.k. for the government to tax people at 100 percent, as long as someone is shown some sort of government benefit." That is the whole take on oDumbo...government

Romney (who has few fans in these forums, understandably), called oDumbo's right in office world tour an "Apology Tour." The Mittster took a lot of flack in the press. The press rightly stated oDumbo never said the words, "We apologize...we are sorry." They are technically correct. The fact remains oDumbo's first interview in office was not given to Fox, CBS, NBC (just name a major American network), it was given to Saudi Arabia's Al-Jezera and broadcast FIRST, to the Saudi's....not to the American people. Then oDumbo ran around to the middle east and never really said, "We are sorry," as much as he said "We should not have imposed our will....our lifestyle....our type of government upon you." Well, our government and lifestyle leads to freedom and liberty. Can you imagine a forum like this existing in Saudi Arabia? The ex-islam forum. The theocratic government of Saudi Arabia would shut it down, arrest the moderators and contributors and sentence us to life in a prison for 'speaking against the prophet.' I had a student (math), right off the boat from Saudi Arabia. He was never taught about dinosaurs in Saudi Schools. He never really has access to a world map in a Saudi school. The only literature taught was the moon gods Kroan. All the Saudi government cares about is keeping the 9,000 or so member of the Royal family happy...everyone else can eat s*** or drink piss as far as the Royals are concerned.

Our way of life (not perfect by a long shot) gave a whole lot of freedom to a whole lot of people. Yes, it took time, but ask anyone that was subjugated under the yoke of Communism in Poland if they are better off now, or under the specter of Moscow.

George Washington said it best. "Government is like fire...it can be a servant of good or a fearful master." Which would you choose? If we could, just ask the 50 or so million people killed in World War 2, or the 200 or so million people killed by Communism how just how wonderful government is. (I know, bad English, never end a sentence is a preposition).

Both major parties want a big government for various reasons. oDumbo wants to re-distribute wealth. Mittster may want a big government to impose morality. The ball in on the forty yard line with 1 minute remaining. A touchdown will put the team in the lead. Now with oDumbo he may want to pass to get that go ahead touchdown; just like the New York Giants. With Romney, he may want to run; just like the Chicago Bears. Whom you vote for will get that touchdown, its just how fast do you want to score.

Brothers and Sisters, let us give thanks for Brother Romney not speaking in Mormon-music-tones, but in non-Massachusettsian Westernese.

He doesn't sound like a Mormon.
He doesn't sound like a Bostonian.
He sounds kind of like from the west of the Rockies.

That would be somewhere probably west of Chicago, wouldn't it?

I feel like a real idiot now. I always do at election time.
I listen to everyone, and think, okay, you know what you are talking about, so you're right.
So I believe them and expect what they say will happen, will happen.
Now I see these reports from voting precincts.
And it's nothing like what I was told over and over it would be like!
It's not like what I thought the polls were saying.
It's not like what "commentators" were saying.
I do not know who is going to win.
When votes are divided, then I think neither candidate is obviously right.
If votes are divided 50-50 or 55-45, then neither candidate is clearly "the best".
They are both just "average". They both get about half the vote.
So neither one has exceptional energy, exceptional charisma, exceptional truth.
I'm sick.
I hate politics.
This was the first time I voted in years.
I don't think I'll ever vote again. :(
