I've always held the position that, if we got centrist Romney in the White House, it wouldn't really be that bad, at least on the social issues where he used to be pro choice and not really railing against gay marriage. The problem is he's spent every moment since he lost the 2008 primary running as far right nutbag Romney, and it scares me that he can be easily molded into something differently at will, on a whim.

So now you are implying believing a religious text requires less than a elementary reading level. Good to know you are rational in your discourse. Authorial intent does change the content and therefore the reading.
Reality is reality, regardless of author intent.

obama and the democrats need to highlight this, since there's been no repercussions for this for the republicans.
@thinkprogress: Romney on 47% comment, 09/17: "A message...I'm going to continue to carry"; Romney tonight: "I said something that's completely wrong"
etch a sketch time
Wouldn't it be interesting if Romney runs as a centrist from here forward? He's walked by his 47% comments now. I think it'd make things kind of interesting.
how would he govern? if republicans control congress, he'd be extremely right-wing.
No and I don't think it's enough time to make up for the shit he's said for a year now.
obama needs to destroy him over this.

Bummer about that Eagle Scout. A kid in my troop who was obviously gay got his Eagle, and no one cared about that up here where it's a fair bit more conservative than in SF. Weird that it would happen there of all places.

Mitt Romney admits 47% remark was 'completely wrong': http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-19840876

"In this case I said something that's just completely wrong. I absolutely believe, however, that my life has shown that I care about 100%... When I become president, it will be about helping the 100%."

Mitt Romney won a debate and The Office had a great episode in back to back days. I feel like I don't know anything about anything anymore. Mitt Romney will win the election, the Jets the superbowl, etc

Quote:
The U.S. economy added 114,000 jobs last month, while the unemployment rate fell to 7.8%, the Labor Department says.

The number of jobs added is roughly in line with economists' forecasts. However, the decline in unemployment was greater than expected and the number of jobs added in August was revised higher than originally reported.

The country generally needs at least 150,000 new jobs each month to keep up with population growth.

I'm not gonna read it but I'm sure it's that some of these jobs are seasonal ones. But the revision of August was nice.

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that President Obama's reelection campaign has raised about $150 million dollars in September.

Obama campaign officials declined to address specific numbers, but a campaign source tells POLITICO that President Obama has blown past his previous fundraising record of $114 million for the 2012 cycle.
Nothing like grassroots campaigning!

Oh shit. I totally just remembered that black Democrats are severely affected by the altitude. Damn. That's unfortunate.
