    Not gonna mention Obama’s bullying a young girl, huh? Nor his cocaine use. Nor his eating dog. Nor what he’s done to the economy. I wonder if we’ll go all 4 years with no budget at all – maybe ALL his budgets can get zero votes in Congress. I wonder how many more Solyndras we’ll have…Or Fast and Furious like operations…or…No, no, let’s all talk about Romney’s supposed bullying, even though the ‘victims’ family disagrees. Whatever.

    Romney the Bully! BOO!

    Romney bullied his way to get the Republican nomination.

    I predict a week of complaints (from republican sympathisers) that GBT never satirises democratic politicians, whilst ignoring the subject matter of this story arc.
    Mark is of course correct, you remember vividly those events in life you are most ashamed of…
    and regret them

    That seems more like some of the other nutjobs that were running. I think Romney just bored everyone to the point where they figured if they made him the nominee maybe he’d stop…

    I have got to start reading Doonesbury over at Arcamax. No one comments there. It’s so … peaceful …

    As the fictional character says, it’s not about the mistakes made in youth, it’s about the denial now. Either he’s lying about the memory or it just wasn’t that remarkable of an event for him. I suspect it’s the former not the latter.

    "I wonder how many more Solyndras we’ll have . . . "

    I often see Fox-Limbaugh followers throw out “Solyndra” as, I guess, a slur on Obama?

    Do they realize that “Solyndra” was part of a loan guarantee program created by Bush & Republican congress?

    The program grew under the Obama administration, but Bush administration signed the law, promoted the program, and Bush himself bragged about it on the way out of office?? I’m guessing they don’t . . .

    Initially I thot “So what!? We all do stupid things when we’re kids that we would never have done as adults. You can’t hold that against the guy.”
    Then I learned that all the other people who participated in the event (1) certainly remembered that Romney was involved, if not the actual instigator, (2) had been ashamed of their own involvement for years, and (3) publicly apologized for it. So what connections are missing in Romney’s brain, regardless of what he does or doesn’t recall about it?

    While I can see the argument about the character flaw of not apologising, from this side of the pond it is a touch worrying that y’all are obsessing about this rather than debating policy. You are our elecotral college for the leader of the free world, and we don’t even get to elect you, let alone him. We do rather depend on you to do your democratic duty with a bit of care about the issues that matter.

    Having just come back from a vist there, might I suggest a serious policy for settling Israel/Palestine would be a good start – on either side of the political divide…?

    By the way, it wasn’t just ‘someone’ claiming Obama was born in Kenya, it was Obama! If you don’t believe me, look it up! I think it was the WaPo that ran an article about how proud he was of being born in Kenya and now being a senator!

    “real issues like questions about Obama’s citizenship”


    It was McCain who was born inside the US on a technicality (the Constitution says the President has to be born within the US but not “or on foreign soil declared to be American because it is for the time being a US military base”); Cheney was eligible to be VP through a loophole (the Constitution says the VP and President must be from different states but not that “owning property in a different state from the president will do, even if the VP has long been resident in the same state at the Pres”).

    If there were ANY credible evidence that …
    oh, never mind.

    But you are quite right. This sort of thing will not sway anyone on either side. But then, neither will anything else. Two thirds of the country (at least) have already made up their minds, and nothing could make those people change their votes. Two thirds of the country (at least) are prepared to excuse any fault in their guy and magnify any fault in the other guy. If a “real issue” is something that might actual get a conservative to vote for Obama, or a liberal to vote for Romney, then there aren’t any real issues in this election.

    The election will turn on that portion of the voting populace who don’t like either candidate very much, don’t care, or aren’t paying attention, and may still be persuaded to make a choice on election day. And what sort of thing might accomplish that?
