You guys just eat this up. Now I'll go back to being like the majority of the country and not care about this.

Romney, if we are to believe the stories released earlier in the campaign, seemed as a youngster to be a bit of a bully. Someone who treated others he viewed as "below him" like crap. His policies and some of the things he said, particularly during the Republican primaries, basically sound like adult versions of these beliefs. Especially the 47% comment.

Polls say the majority of the country did care about the 47% comments ... so, what again are you doing?

"This" means this, not "every stupid comment he has made in the past few months". Anyone with a brain knows that the 47% comments were stupid (note: this group does not include large portions of the Republican Party in 2012).

The polls, again, reflect that they do care about all the stupid comments/things he's done ... which is why he's losing the election.

Okay, but I wasn't referring to these pictures, they simply brought up the topic of what Mitt was like as a younger man and how that would be compared/contrasted if similar news/pics of Obama came out.

I assumed they were fake when the first two were posted, mostly because of 1. What the bearded gentleman was wearing in the first picture and 2. The "old lady" in the second pic just looks like a young woman dressed in old lady garb.

Jeez, the fact that some people here were reading so much into fake photos is kinda depressing.

I'm going to make some photos of Obama doing coke with members of the Weather Underground while burning an American flag and send them to FoxNews, I imagine it would elicit a similar reaction.

The polls also reflect that Romney is doing well.

Okay, well sorry for lumping you in with the other post. Still, considering he is still doing fine in the polls indicates that the only Americans who really care enough about it to matter are the ones who would probably be voting for Obama anyway.

No they don't. They reflect he's about to lose an election. How is that "fine"? There's one winner in this. Any other outcome is not fine.

They reflect that he may lose the election but win the popular vote. This would indicate that a majority of the country doesn't care about the stuff that 20-something liberals on the internet care about. Which was my point.

Actually it just reflects that people in the south are really, REALLY voting against Obama this time...Obama's up in every other part of the nation.

There's a very rare chance that that happens. That does not indicate what you say it does, nor was that what your point originally stated.

Or you could show a little patience and wait for them to do it themselves?

I didn't, although I did laugh this one time I saw a blind kid walk into a vending machine.
