    No one cares about the 47% remark except frothing partisan hacks. Any half-way objective critical thinker can see it's taken out of context. He is discussing campaigning - NOT POLICY. Dropping context is just a stupid ploy to make the comment seem like something it is not. Doing such is just as pathetic as dropping context on Hillary's "what difference does it make".

    When someone busts out the "47% comment" or the "what difference", I know I'm dealing with a fringe partisan.

    It's actually really telling of a political novice simply by whether they actually think Romney could ever compete again. That video is like a nuclear weapon x10000.

    Which policies do you feel are "extreme right"?
    I don't think that any of Romney's stated policies were far right, although he played to the right to get the nomination.

    And yes, I think he would have been a hell of a lot better than Obama.

    Yeah completely wrong.

    Romney has admitted it was what lost him the election.

    You still don't even come close to understanding the white left (which is why I'd argue the GOP is going to lose to Hillary, they still do not understand what motivates your average white leftist). We do not care that a low level white Liberal guy who was a big pal of all US left politicians happened to be killed in a war torn Libya. We don't care. He was a leftist anyways. So it isn't even a scandal to us, rofl.. It will not impact Hillary one bit. We aren't neocons after all. We don't care about the Middle East. We'd defund Israel tomorrow.

    Romney is a wet fish...spineless.

    No one the GOP or the Dems will field will do anything but make America worse.

    Mitt needs to go on with his life. He's got money, go tour Europe or something.

    I foresee this being a somewhat lame election -- no interesting and fresh choices on either side.

    Stay tuned for Chelsea Clinton in the next decade.

    When the republicans propped up McRINO aka McCain in 2008 I just simply left that part of the ballot blank and voted for ballot issues and candidates running for other offices. I also did the same thing the republicans propped up Etch-a-Sketch aka Mitt Romney in 2012. It was as though the republicans said to themselves running a liberal didn't work so lets run a even bigger liberal.Hopefully the republicans learned their lesson and will prop up a conservative. If the GOP props up Romney,McCain,another Bush or some other piece of **** cock sucking RINO in 2012 I vote for the democrat primary winner.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
