What Mr. Romney Said

And of course…the 47 percent of people who are dependent upon the government and don’t pay taxes…

Well, Mr. Romney…that’s offensive.  I pay an ass-load of income taxes and I’m still likely voting for Obama, mainly b/c you come off like a big doucher most of the time.

(From the emailed press release issued around 10 PM on 9/11/12 following initial reports of the deaths of Americans in connection with the attacks in Libya) “I’m outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt and by the death of an American consulate worker in Benghazi,” the statement read. “It’s disgraceful that the Obama Administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks.”

Well, Mr. Romney, that’s just not true.  The President did not sympathize with those who waged the attacks.  To the contrary, he said he would bring them to justice.  This is just outright nonsense.

(The next morning’s press conference on 9/12/12, after confirmation of ambassador Chris Stevens’ assassination in Benghazi the day prior)  “The administration was wrong to stand by a statement sympathizing with those who had breached our Embassy in Egypt, instead of condemning their actions. It’s never too early for the United States government to condemn acts on Americans and to defend our values.”

“It’s a terrible course for America to stand in apology for our values,” Romney said. “And apology for America’s values is never the right course.”

(Again, this comes off as slightly insane and deceptive.  The President never apologized, but condemned these acts of terror.  Furthermore, what values would he even be apologizing for?  Some bogus video that trashed Muslims?  No apology was ever given for the video.  Nor is it in our value as a country to ridicule other religions, although it is within our rights…you are the apologist, apologizing to your base for a Presidency that they do not respect nor find legitimacy in, a President that deserves his post and deserves respect for a landslide victory, unlike his predecessor who stole an election.)

(8/23/2012, during the launch of Mr. Romney’s Energy Plan)

“Sometimes I have the impression that the whole regulatory attitude of the administration is trying to stop oil and gas and coal — that they don’t want those sources, that instead they want to get those things so expensive and so rare that wind and solar become highly cost-effective and efficient.”

“On federal lands the permitting process to actually drill and get oil or gas is extraordinarily slow. Now, interestingly, on state lands and private lands, state regulators have streamlined their permitting process, their evaluation, their environmental process, safety processes,” he said. “They found a way — because we compete with one another — they found a way to do a job in a more efficient way.”

(I agree, ensuring that permitting should have oversight on federal lands – public resources – especially in wake of Deep Water Horizon, is a terrible thing…Plus the fact that Obama has even pushed natural gas extraction via horizontal fracking, a proven method of destroying water supplies, terrible for communities and locals, but great for multinationals, and yet Obama is anti energy?  Mitt, you are so full of –itt.)
