    He should just make up crap and promise the world to every voter. Hey it worked 4 years ago.

    Last good Republican was Ike.

    Anyone else remember nixon and agnew, both resigned, in disgrace. Sure don’t need any additional republicans in any office.

    Well, there IS one more thing he couldn’t bear to hear…
    Willard, you have to release your tax returns.
    He’d drop out of the race in a heartbeat.

    Your sarcasm is a little subtle there…

    Agnew was a crook, and Nixon was not conservative, though he was a republican true. But at least they had enough scruple to resign, or be forced out by their party. What is your excuse for Clinton not resigning, or Reid who is as corrupt as they come.

    No doubt you opposed Kennedy as well since he had to listen to whatever the Pope said. I grew up surrounded my Mormons and though I find their religion very odd, they are good hard working people as a rule, who have good strong morals and care about people. That should be what matters, not the peculiarities of their faith.

    I’ve always thought it ought to be the law that if a person runs for federal office, he has to let the voting public take a look at his income tax returns. For example: the four previous years for anybody running for the House, six for the Senate, eight for the president. I love how Toles makes little Mitt seem like a rubber toy here, all ready to be flexible (read flip-flop) even in the midst of his crybaby tantrum.

    While I appreciate your tolerance, Kennedy clearly stated that he would not put papal decree before the best interests of the American people. Has Romney so stated?

    I was a child when Kennedy ran. I don’t think he believed his underwear protected him from evil or that he did more than pay lip service to his religion, he certainly didn’t in his sexual practices. You wouldn’t say that Mormons have strong morals if you were gay and it’s only recently that they’ve stopped dehumanizing blacks, look it up. Romney is dangerous on many levels, especially if you’re a working person. Since Reagan began trickle down the middle class has steadily disappeared; that’s a fact. The disparity in wealth has grown and Romney is in there to complete the transition to a plutocracy; look who his backers are. I stand by my assertion that the voters should be made aware of his weird beliefs and his pledge of allegiance to the elders of his church which comes before all else. By the way, my friends left the Mormon church because they found it to be immoral, and they know better than you or I do what really goes on.

    This isn’t something us Dems want to hear either. If the GOP fatcats stop ‘investing’ in Mitt, where do you think that money’s gonna go instead?

    Into the House and Senate races, and we don’t want that…we want them to keep throwing their money away on the Romney/Ryan trainwreck

    since all religions are myths, and no atheist, agnostic, or secularist can ever be elected in this strange and savage land, I fear that your hopes (and mine) will always be dashed.

    Nice gag for this cartoon, and the drawing of Mitt is evocative and even primal. Good one, Ted.

    It wasn’t scruple. It was resign with a shred of dignity or the humiliation of impeachment. besides the fix was in and he was pardoned.

    I don’t think you will ever be able to convince me nixon or agnew had enough scrupples to resign. They both resigned to avoid being sent to prison for a very long time.
