Whats the difference between this woman who supports her candidate and those who support Obama?

What exactly is the problem?

Even though she fails to realize that Obama and Romney both work for the same team (which was their point), I thought she did ok. This coming from a fan of Adam.

The problem is that, from what I've seen, a lot of those who support Romney do so because they've been brainwashed into it. They cannot produce facts, they repeatedly preach (yes, preach) as though being Republican is a religious choice.

They're full of hypocrisies. They hold "Christian" views while demanding that poor or sick people fend for themselves, and that they should be able to make billions of $'s without contributing to society at all. They wave around the constitution and complain about Obama while ignoring the Patriot Act. They support the idea of getting America back to work, while cheering for a man who is directly responsible for removing so many jobs overseas. They have a "blind faith" mentality that Romney is somehow magical and will fix everything that is wrong in America - but no one seems to know how he plans to do that - he's never said how he plans to do it!

Boiled down, the average Republican cheer-leader is perhaps the biggest hypocrite I have ever seen! That's not everyone, I know that, but there are so many in the party who are in complete opposition to themselves, removing logic and reason and ignoring their own ridiculous level of hypocrisy for the sake of the party.

I agree that both parties are as bad as each other, and I agree that both are wholly owned by their sponsors. It makes no difference whether it's Romney or Obama, their masters have the script already written for them and if Romney becomes POTUS we'll see him come out of his first official meeting looking 20 years older and absolutely terrified - just as Obama did on his first night of being POTUS.

But, that doesn't change the fact that if I were American - even while knowing it's all a rigged game - I would *prefer* to have someone in the White House who is more likely to fight against the internal crazies, someone who isn't going to embarrass my nation on a daily basis, someone who has a clue, someone who doesn't want to take the country back to the Cold War...

Even just on religious conviction, I would vote for the person least likely to use their religious beliefs on a political platform.

I cannot stand Romney. He has not given me one reason to vote for him.

That being said these guys acting like reporters are total jackasses. She is a little crazy but at least she isn’t borderline harassing people. It is her right to support who she wants it seems like these guys are trying to run her off. One guy says he was a cop (I have my doubts) and they talk about the constitution at the same time they do not seem to want to respect it.

This is NOT the way to gain support for your candidate. Many people stayed away from Ron Paul because they did not want to be associated with his supporters like those two. Arrogance and smugness does not sell. Insulting someone like these two were will not sway a voter.

Years from now when they get older they may look back at this and realize they hurt Ron Paul more than help him.

Seeing that makes me so angry. The nut jobs who did that should be in jail.

Everyone has a right to assemble, support, or protest but it must be peaceful.

Many of the members here are just as blinded, but at least they have enough mental capacity to formulate a proper comeback

She doesn't look like she has ever tasted Diet Coke or not much at least, so I'd guess inbreeding is the culprit here.

I will give her credit though, she does appear to actually support Romney and is not afraid to say so. Not that I spend a lot of time searching for Romney supporters, but she is the first one I have heard supporting him. Anyone else I have heard talking about voting for Romney all say they are voting against obama.

So far I have seen ONE Romney bumper sticker on a car, and they are mailing them out for free (I know, I got one in the mail somehow). I still see some obama '08 ones and a few obama '12 ones. I can honestly say that around where I live for every obama ('08 &'12) sticker I see, I see something like 15 Ron Paul ones.

As much as she disgusts me Pelosi is right, Romney won't win.

I do not support Romney, let me state that clearly. Now, that video interview was weak all around. The questioners had no clear focus, they seemed to want to just make that woman feel threatened. She was not prepared to answer them concisely, although they should have been very prepared with intelligent questions, and they weren't.

She was annoying, but you see that type of behavior at all types of rallies for different things.

Atleast she believes in something and is doing something for her beliefs. She may be misguided, but those of us who feel we know more don't seem to be accomplishing enough to bring about change in the status quo political mentality.

You should not pick apart this one woman.

Man... just can't watch all of that. Saw the same damn thing with Bush.
And she is just so sure about every thing. "Support our troops" when she is talking to a vet.

What planet are they on?
All emotion. Gets all upset when having to try and explain themselves.

Honestly...She held her own with the tools she had available to her...which were limited.

I have no doubt that there are un-informed folks waiving signs in every camp...RP included, though his followers do seem to have more of a "thinking man's" zealotry.

I do not agree with this woman and she does appear to be a bit brainwashed, but so are a lot of folks...I honestly found myself a little pissed at the RP supporters for seeming to gang up on her.

She is exactly what she appears to be. A not well informed, but still passionate supporter of Mitt Romney. That doesn't make her unusual...nor deserving of being singled out for a youtube video etc.

This crew of RPers would be better served to fish for a better equiped supporter for this video appears more mocking and arrogance. Being right doesn't make cornering this woman "right"...

I'd like to see a montage or a diverse collection of conversations with different people at the rally before being comfortable assigning the "typical Mitt Romney" supporter tag

Just my honest thoughts. BTW - I think Romney is corrupt and frightening prospect for POTUS.

So just keep attacking random individual supporters without having to defend Obama and his litany of failures. Is that how it works??

The opening "gotcha" question asked of this woman is "do you support perpetual war?"

Ask the same question to an Obama supporter and see what kind of answer you get. Then consider Obama's actions, Failed Foreign Policy and Failed Obama Doctrine that seems to be paving the way for World War III.

Then consider our "new" interests in Central Africa and our current troop deployment in that area and our current training operations and financial support to govt.s in that region. This is Obama's proxy war that no one talks about... We employ hundreds of "private contractors" in Somalia alone... Uganda? Sudan? Congo? etc etc

Still, over the past year, the United States has quietly stepped up operations inside Somalia, American officials acknowledge. The Central Intelligence Agency, which largely finances the country’s spy agency, has covertly trained Somali intelligence operatives, helped build a large base at Mogadishu’s airport — Somalis call it “the Pink House” for the reddish hue of its buildings or “Guantánamo” for its ties to the United States — and carried out joint interrogations of suspected terrorists with their counterparts in a ramshackle Somali prison.

The Pentagon has turned to strikes by armed drone aircraft to kill Shabab militants and recently approved $45 million in arms shipments to African troops fighting in Somalia.

Shhh no one wants to talk about it nor will they ask Obama about his perpetual war. Let's ask Obama the same question.

Perpetual war without the "USA" nameplate attached.

Some critics view the role played by Mr. Rouget and other contractors as a troubling trend: relying on private companies to fight the battles that nations have no stomach for. Some American Congressional officials investigating the money being spent for operations in Somalia said that opaque arrangements like those for Bancroft — where money is passed through foreign governments — made it difficult to properly track how the funds were spent.

It also makes it harder for American officials to monitor who is being hired for the Somalia mission. In Bancroft’s case, some trainers are veterans of Africa’s bush wars who sometimes use aliases in the countries where they fought. Mr. Rouget, for example, used the name Colonel Sanders.

Whatever... keep picking on the hapless and irrelevant while ignoring the man accountable in the Oval office

The report provides new details about an operation by the South African firm Saracen International to train a 1,000-member antipiracy militia for the government of Puntland, a semiautonomous region in northern Somalia, effectively creating “the best-equipped indigenous military force anywhere in Somalia.” Using shell companies, some of which the United Nations report links to Erik Prince, who founded the Blackwater Worldwide security company, Saracen secretly shipped military equipment — which the report says violated an arms embargo — into northern Somalia on cargo planes leaving from Uganda and the United Arab Emirates. Several American officials have said that the Emirates, concerned about the piracy epidemic, have been secretly financing the Saracen operation.

Aid From the Pentagon

The Pentagon has recently told Congress that it plans to send nearly $45 million worth of military equipment to bolster the Ugandan and Burundian troops. The arms package includes transport trucks, body armor, night vision goggles and even four small drone aircraft that the African troops can use to spy on Shabab positions.

Is this the best you can do??

I guess you missed the part where the people asking the questions in the video weren't Obama supporters.

Never really paid attention to whether they were Obama or Romney supporters (I'm Canadian). Just disgusted at the lack of empathy shown towards someone with an incurable disease. Again, special place in hell, lol.

And this is why I'm scared to walk out my door! Lol. There are not really words for these people, and sadly that makes up a majority of our voters.

Oh I'm sorry am I supposed to have reasons why I support someone? But that flasy talking box said it was ok that he loved me and would protect the constatution and if I didn't vote for him the terrorist would run rampant thru the streets, I have to be out here with my sign and spread the word of god, I mean romney spread the word of Romney, he is apsoloutly the best for reason I will never know or bother to learn. But I believe him when he says he will protect us from the likes of spears, agulaira, gaga and rap music, no talking about boats and hoes over here that drives the terrorist crazy. I would rather my government control every aspect of my life so I don't risk making a mistake and causin my country harm as long as I am submissive and blindly go where, Unfortunatly, man has gone before I'll be ohhhhtay. how dare you question my reasoning. I'm a American and as a American I have rights and I envoke my right to be ignornant, uninformed, and loud. The nerve of some people, Romney bitch's that's what's up,

Sorry don't know what got in to me, but seriously that lady sucks

Well stated! star for you! and this

I have to agree with the hypocrisy....right to life...until your born. If your parents can't take care of you...put you in a foster home. Homeless?...starve and die in the cold. Soldier? Die for the corporation...erm...the country.

They hold themselves as devout Christians but they choose to ignore Christ's positions on the poor and downtrodden...I find that pretty remarkable as well.

I'm not hating on what they say, but I am hating on hypocrisy...if you want to let people die homeless and hungry...fine...just don't blaspheme Christ and call yourself a Christian...I'm sure he is not going to appreciate it.

I'm not a supporter of Romney or Obama...I support the gov getting out of my face and out of my hair so I can make some money...and I think most people would if given the freedom to do so.
