The impostor Mitt will be flayed alive by the mighty Cthulhu.

The mighty Cthulhu needs no publicist as his greatness has been known since before the beginning of time.

Ah, so with all that absolute power, I suppose he will "win" the nomination, whether he is nominated or not?

Cthulhu does not need your permission or nomination to rule over you. You will grovel before your master Cthulhu.

Curt

Have you read einstein's most popular biography, by walter isaacson? I have, whether it was through direct pay, or by being taken care of in financial terms indirectly, he lived a upper middle income lifestyle by todays standards as soon as he came to america, which is the country in question. He created his lifestyle through his intelligence and applying himself. Any of the studies I've seen that confirm income is mirrored by intelligence, say it breaks down after around 140 IQ. 140>110 IQ for income but 170 to 140 there is no difference. Once again, I'm aware there are dozens of studies pro and con, I don't care to look at them again.

Come on, I understand you don't like Mitt, I don't like Obama, but I think he extremely sharp, just lacked experience, you really don't think that he's in the top % in intelligence, no matter how you measure it?

Yes, I have read that biography. In fact, I suspect that Steve Jobs chose Walter Isaacson to write his own biography in part because he wrote Einstein's. No, I don't believe Mitt is particularly intelligent, but I do think he is an extremely successful opportunist. He should probably have his own chapter in Nassim Taleb's book "Fooled by Randomness."

Curt

Funny, I'm reading steve's biography right now, half way through it.

I don't believe you don't think he's particularly intelligent, even if you totally disagree with him. No biggie.

MITT WILL WIN :) I'll bring back this topic in a year.

My prediction: If jobs and the economy continue to improve and are on a noticeable upswing in September, Obama will win in a squeaker. If not, Romney will win bigger than a squeaker.

I know some folks derive a kind of sick enjoyment from the quadrennial pageant of televised intelligence-abatement that is the United States presidential election, but itís time to stop the charade. There is no primary. There is no general. There is only this: I am Mitt Romneyís haircut. This is my year, and I will not be denied.

Well, no. He's sleeping because the stars are wrong. When they are right, then he will once more have agency. Until then, he has no power (although we still have no power to affect him).

The stars will be right in November 2012.

Actually, I would guess that this is the Dec. 21st date that everyone is so worried about. Sure it's after the election, but he's one of those guys who's good at getting his way.

It could happen, for sure. But there is also a trend among moderate republicans and independents who feel the republican party has veered off the rails to the far right. If some of them stay home and/or vote Obama, he can easily pull out a win in CO.

And those on the left who feel disappointed that Obama didn't do more will, I think, be reminded over the next 9 months of all that he did. I mean, considering the political climate, the administration did quite a bit. A few things off the top of my head that matter to me (YMMV - e.g. I don't really care about Osama Bin Laden):

- End don't ask don't tell
- Healthcare reform
- Prevented a depression
- Get out of Iraq
- Played cards just right in Libya
- Made us look better on the world stage again

I also have trouble with a President who is (was?) a bishop in their church. A wee bit too religious for a high gov't position IMO.

Given the whole "lessor of two evils" thing people seem to be using to cast their vote... Obama is certainly the lessor of the two, no matter who in the GOP he runs against, as the entire list of GOP candidates are freaking nuts! Watching them is like watching a cross between the Jerry Springer Show and Survivor... Fist, lots of yelling, slapping, and slander, then... Someone gets voted off the island. All they do is blame sh|t on Obama that he had no real part in, or, even sh|t they themselves have done to the economy. (E.g., us losing our AAA credit rating) I'm suprised they haven't tried to blame 911 on him.


So, I see him winning, no matter who he runs against... But then again, as Andy (atg200) said a few elections ago:
"...a large portion of voters are kneejerking simpletons easily distracted by shiny things and yelling..."

Lots of yelling, and lots of promises of shiny things, so maybe the simpltons will will get 'their man'.

This wasn't an issue when he was governor of Mass. The two biggest things that happened under him were the repealing of most of Massachusetts' blue laws governing alcohol, and gay marriage. If Romney truly believed all that mumbo-jumbo religious stuff, and saw himself as a leader who had to cater to his flock, he would have pulled every string he had to try to keep those laws off the books. He did no such thing.

And, of course, Romneycare. Santorum has actually done an excellent job in the Republican debates pointing out that the healthcare system Romney enacted in MA is basically indistinguishable from Obamacare in many respects. Romney keeps denying this--but Obama will have a field day with that issue if Romney is the eventual Republican candidate.
