    Well handled by the reporter. I love that kind of argumentation.

    Sometimes you don't need to push any more, that was the case there. Sometimes it's better just to not push and leave the person to their own thoughts about being humiliated on national TV.

    I think you're giving her too much credit, I doubt she has the brain capacity to be humiliated.

    Someone in the Romney camp should have prepared Ryan for questions regarding his letters begging for government cash.

    Romney is a picture perfect president. You would have to be a deluded tool to deny that. The only hope is that people want a bit more than that from their president.

    Churches launch Operation Black Vote in a bid to harness a million non-voters. It says they are non-partisan but it's hard to imagine the targets going for Romney.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    There's an interesting theory that, as the black and latino populous grows, the two-party system will be broken by the fact that the GOP will simply lack the ability to compete. Effectively, Mitt's 47% will eventually become the majority.

    This is a decade or two in the future, though, and could just be one of those social theories that turns out to be horseshit and just shows a snapshot trend. Plus if the GOP ever decide to toy with a black or latino candidate then that'll change the game. But it's currently not in their interest to, financially or voter...y.

    Well, eventually they're going to have to fix their problem with Hispanic voters, as they are steadily on the rise. You'd think they were a natural fit with the Republicans, given that most of them are religious and socially conservative.
  • Deleted user 14 October 2012 02:44:18
    They may be religious and socially conservative, but they're also mostly poor, young, first and second generation immigrants (legal or otherwise), the kind of which Romney et al basically want to get rid of (or get them to "self-deport" as he puts it). Mitten's attempts to connect with the latino demographic has mostly come of as insincere pandering at best.

    That's why I meant by "they're going to have to fix their problem". The fact is that, yes, despite their social conservatism, Hispanics don't flock to the Republicans because they believe (with some justification) that the Republicans don't give a shit about them.

    This is becoming something of a big deal, and will continue in this fashion as the demographics of America lead to higher percentages of "minorities".

    @mowgli - yeah that picture of him smirking after giving what he considered a killer press conference scoring political point from the deaths of the Americans in Benghazi is just the sort of image that screams 'awesome president' to me.

    I assume the people reading this thread saw the stuff about Paul Ryan's soup kitchen stunt. Basically the Romney campaign invaded a soup kitchen in Ohio for a photo op of Paul Ryan washing dishes. Y'know, politics.

    Anyway, here's a leaked video of the event.

    How badly can you fuck up a photo op in a soup kitchen?!

    I imagine the Soup Kitchen sector will be one that sees growth if Romney wins, maybe they were just doing research.

    :D " This is... really important.."

    To work!

    - Put pinnies on (H+S)
    - Find the only pan left around
    - It's already clean? Rub it with something anyway
    - Find a black persons hand to shake (wash carefully after)
    - Dash to next photo-op

    Oh! And when you're in power..

    - cut any funding to soup kitchens. They appear to have nothing to do anyway.

    I would very much like to stay up to watch this one but I'm having my guttering cleaned in the morning* so I should go to bed.

    The "town hall" debates always carry the chance of disastrous embarrassment. I wonder if it'll be in the World Service so I can listen & doze.

    Edit: *not a euphemism

    Obama's a lot more assertive and aggressive this time. Definitely good to see.

    He's limited by the format though, in that he actually has to address the questions that people give him, while being assertive too. It's unpredictable.

    Thought him and Romney were going to have a barney right on the stage just now.
