Video: Interviews With Romney Supporters Are Seriously...Disturbing

by: lowkell

Wow. These are actual Romney supporters? I mean, they're just (pick one or more adjectives): a) hateful; b) bigoted; c) nuts; d) clueless; e) brain dead; f) ignorant; g) rabid. It's astounding, but there are tens of millions of people like this in our country. Sometimes I wonder how we ever make any progress at all. Ugh, I feel like I need a long, hot shower. More to the point, we can NOT let these people win; can you imagine what they'd do to this country? So do whatever you can possibly do in the next 4 days to elect Democrats across the board. Thanks.

P.S. Great job as always by New Left Media! How they can stand being in the presence of people like this and also keep their cool is beyond me....

slightly off topic but new crazy romney commercial... (0.00 / 0)
I think Bills Barbecues were only in the Richmond area but they were much beloved by many older folks who had happy memories from their glory days.  To blame the fall of the chain on President Obama is just crazy talk.  I don't know why but the restaurant business has become really competitive in Richmond.  The fall of this chain is strictly based on its management which has done nothing to compete.

Bill's Never Appealed to Me (0.00 / 0)
When I was in college in the '70s, I ate my barbeque at a place called King's on Horsepen Road. Even then Bill's locations looked poorly maintained and uninviting.

But everyone needs a rationalization for failure. Mitt'll have his in hand Tuesday night.

PBO is not at War with BBQ (or Coal).
I couldn't watch all of the video, I see too much of that ignorance every day already.

THe Greeks warned of this (0.00 / 0)
These ignorant and emotional comments by Romney supporters hint at the danger of democracy without well-informed citizens. More than 2,000 years ago, Plato warned of the devolution of democracy into mobocracy and anarchy and then back to autocracy. With nearly half the American electorate thinking like the people in these interviews, Plato's theory of political evolution looks more credible. Whatever happened to dispassionate reason and seeking truth from facts?

I really don't know (0.00 / 0)
how to even have a sane conversation with these people.  An atheist muslim?

This is sad... (0.00 / 0)
but you can't have a sane conversation with these people.  I have met a few folks like these and they can only repeat talking points. I think of these folks as being almost like members of a cult.  I don't think I have ever heard anyone accused of being an atheist Christian muslim before.

They can't even repeat the talking points... (0.00 / 0)

When pressed, these folks struggled.  They had heard things - probably on talk radio, and they tried to regurgitate, but they didn't have it memorized..

It is a cult (4.00 / 2)
The Republican Party, IMO, has indeed devolved intio a cult.... at least among its non-corporate, carbon-based membership. They have their secular religion of bastardized free market theory, they demonize any who question it, they overlay this with magical thinking and pseudo-religiosity based loosely on a Revelations and Dark
Age witchcraft plus Apocalypse. Magical thinking at its worst, in other words. This stew is funded and sponsored by the global corporate elite, which puts up with the cult in order to manipulate political control. This is pretty much what the Junkers and German industrialists did after Woreld War I: in their fear of communism, they sponsored Hitler, thinking they could control the peons. The similarities then and now are striking.

A very dangerous cult at that. (0.00 / 0)

I just managed to watch the clip (0.00 / 0)
all the way through. I have to say the last few seconds were priceless: Meatloaf (excellent monicker) emoting (that is, singing), while Romney is gritting his teeth and making like he's a jolly good fella, showing how much he really, really enjoys being put through his paces in order to garner votes of the very 47 percent he denigrates in private (and whom Ann calls "you people," which is even better). Don't you know Romney must feel his corporate buddies will owe him plenty for putting him through this charade? Or, rather, that "you people" will have to grind out their last drop of treasure to Romney to make it all worth his while for compelling him to execute this excruciating campaign? Payback for the commoner is going to be hell under Romney. Poor fools.

The young man at around 2 minutes has a future as a politican.  He was asked about abortion relating to rape.  He avoided the question and stated that his position was that rape shouldn't be allowed.
