Idiocy of this magnitude can be expected and even excused if he was a 10 year old, but this guy wants to hold the office of the president of the united states of america, one of the most powerful offices in the world.
keep rationalizing and making excuses for idiots like this and we will end up with forrest gump as president and all his cousins in congress.
too many americans are willing to accept mediocrity and idiocy in their leaders and then they are shocked by the stupid decisions that the leaders make.
i`m embarrassed and disgusted with everyone who supports having morons like this hold the highest office in america.

Yet he is more successful than any of you on this thread. I do not like the guy but I do not take every opportunity to crap on him.

This reminds me of a time during my college years when I took a music class. My instructor was a great musician and actress which spent quite a while in NYC working in shows.

I had to write a paper for my midterm and at the time I didn't have a printer but I did have a cd writer on my pc. So i burned it on my pc and turned it in to her. The next week she handed back all of our papers except mine. I asked her what my grade was and she said he had trouble getting my paper off the disk. She tried to explain to me what she was trying to do and i was completely confused. After class I went back to her office I asked her to show me what she was having problems with. Well she put the cd in her cd player instead of into her computer. She was trying to play the cd......Even though I had written data cd and the name of the paper on the cd. She then put the cd into her computer and tried to play it with her windows media player... I had to step in and open the file for her then print it.


She was a very good musician and was very knowledgeable when it came to the arts but she didn't have much common sense when it came to technology

OP I hope someone craps on you really hard when you make an honest mistake about something not related to your profession and goes on to state how you are unfit to do your profession.

True. But he doesn't want to BE the president. He just wants to WIN the office. He has no idea what he's going to do there and I doubt he cares. He'll let his advisers do the job, knowing he WON!

If you consider amassing a great amount of wealth as a measure of success, then you're probably right. In his quest for intelligence, however, he appears to be a giant failure.

Was she running for president of the free world??

I guess anyone would have better chance to be successful if they are born with a silver spoon in their mouth, you know, where you are automatically enrolled in top Ivy leagues, tuition paid off etc.

He is the president, he will have say in every decision, decision that will impact the entire country, he is not managing one thing like music. If he didn't know the results of an atomic bomb, wouldn't he be more eager to use it as a retaliation?

No she was not. That is not even the point. The point is just because he is stupid about some things it does not mean he is stupid about his profession. I do not see you having as much success in politics or business so what room do you have to talk about his ability in these areas???

If what he has done does seems wrong it may seem wrong to you because it does not benefit you but it sure does benefit him so what he does makes perfect sense.

When i go to my mechanic all i want him to know is cars, when i go to doctor i just want him to know medicine. If both believe the earth is flat i don't give a flying puck as long as they know their job.

You might think he does not know his job but all i have to say is score board. where are you and where is he??

I am pretty sure you are pretty dumb on somethings, does that disqualify you from your profession?? should someone crap on you for it too??

Really? really. I do not have his cash- but I am magnitudes more successful than *he* will ever be. I can draw, I can sculpt, I am creative, have a great sense of humor- I have many good things under my belt that this hair pile will *never* have. Any idiot can make money.
Same goes for the goober brain running the country now.

MONEY. Is worthless. Brains, talent, creativity, ability to find resources, either for hobbies or to live- THAT is success.

Edit: I reread some of the posters. To be a good leader of all sorts of people- he has to KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT THEM. A renaissance man. Someone of many talents, many backgrounds- a jack of all trades. Look at past presidents... they had hobbies, they had interests, they knew what made people go. Now- we get college educated scum scraped off the school toilet.

sounds more like you are jealous of him. yet he is in a position where none of you will ever be in. Go ahead and hate on him. One thing is being born into money. The other is doing something with it. he could have just been happy being rich and sat around not doing a dam thing. there are plenty of rich kids who are just content with being born rich and never do anything more than be a spoiled brat.

slam a guy for saying something stupid. I do not like the guy but I am not going to harp on petty crap like this.. what are you?? kids on a playground??? I remember kids like you on the playground. the jealous types, the ones who just hate you and will look for anything to ridicule you.

Chew me out till you are blue in the face the fact of the matter is that he has taken advantage of what was given to him even if he is stupid on somethings. He has gotten farther than any of you would.

While chats around his dinner table are about potentially being the president yours are about your ats posts and about romney. guess what?? he does not care that you think he is an idiot.

Just think an idiot got father than you and will always be better than you in business and politics.

If the electorate is not going to judge who is best for their political leaders, who is? It IS my job to judge his competence, whether I run for office or not. As a US citizen, it is absolutely my job.



When i go to my mechanic all i want him to know is cars, when i go to doctor i just want him to know medicine. If both believe the earth is flat i don't give a flying puck as long as they know their job.


That's certainly your prerogative. If my doctor wears special underwear that protect him from evil, and doesn't seem to have much common sense, I'm going to find another freaking doctor! That's my prerogative.

My intelligence and success are not at issue here. And you are free to think and state your opinion on each, just as we are free to state our opinions on Mr. Romney's.

Yeah, but here's the thing... his business basically involved a very small specialised skillset and a particular attitude.

It's wholly debatable if those skills are transferable to the Presidency and whether or not his attitude is appropriate for being the leader of our country.

It's also debatable whether or not things like a basic understanding of science and maths, or in the case of someone like Dan Quayle, spelling and history, are important...

BUT... it is completely up to the electorate to deign what is important and if a candidate has it...

I don't think he has the proper attitude toward the majority of American, or toward the role of governement, I also don't think he's really smart enough for the job... that's my prerogative and my opinion..

I've lived in a state he's "managed" and don't think he's competent.... but even if I hadn't, I've watched this campaign; if he ran America like he ran his political campaign, we'd be a lot worse off then we are now, shortly.

Exactly. In a scenario (well, this IS ATS) where aliens take over- ANY recent president would be worth less than ****. They'd go by the script, the world (obviously) would lose, or be losing, and they'd run off to a hole, whimpering a token "oh, our poor species!" just before the wine is poured and the fancy foods put out. To run ANYTHING- a business, a daycare, your own "I can make things" gig on a website- you have to know MORE than 1-2 skills- like business law and marketing! You have to know everything about what you're getting into- and there will be subjects one would not even relate to their niche that will be important!

I hate to use movie/ tv show examples... but someone who is a combination of Macgyver, Jamie Hyneman from mythbusters, and mebbe a little Jim Carey or Robin Williams would make a far better president than these business marketing lawyers we are having shoved up our as-ummm- noses. Why those people? Resourcefulness, multi talent, ability to think out of the box- and HUMOR. Oh brother- do these imbeciles in govt need a sense of humor! Financial success means NOTHING. It's even less when said person(s) are already rich, steal to get richer, and care not for anyone else.

Also, someone who knows who the hell they are representing. They do NOT just represent hispanics, blacks, muslims, christians, jews- or whatever appeals to their voting woodie of the moment! Every last (legal) person in this country is a HUMAN first, and whatever the hell their ethnic/ religious/ whatever second. I'll still discount illegals- because they are criminals. No one will ever change my mind on that. I dont like being robbed. (and yes... they have. Multiple times). Pandering to *a* group- and not even one that is specifically tied to this country is pretty much treason. The constitution does say "WE THE PEOPLE"- not we, the (insert your ethnic origin here, insert your religion here)! As such:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence,[note 1] promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Not one iota of mention of race, creed, color, (inter)national origin, religion, NADA. An educated, intelligent person would realize this first and foremost.

NEITHER choice for president understands this.

And there is the "Big Lie"...that people with lots of money are the only ones that work hard in this country.

The soldier in Afganistan, putting his life on the line for his country with three kids and wife back in the states..

The teacher that has worked 30 years teaching kids in the inner city.

The garbageman who might not have been able to go to college but has worked two jobs his entire life to feed his kids, put a roof over thier heads and teach them difference between right and wrong and give them the shot at college he never had.

These people are less "successful" than Romney?? These people don't work hard? Take no "responsibility for thier lives"???

This false idea that the GOP is selling that how successful you are is measured by your bank account offends everything this country stands for.

It is the rational for the sociapathic, morally bankrupt conduct on Wall Street that nearly collapsed our entire economy and bankrupted the retirement of many hard working families.

It is a disgusting premise...And it is offensive to everyone in America, rich or poor, that works thier ass off and quitely measures thier "success" everytime they tuck thier kids into bed each evening knowing the are teaching them well.....and for many of us, one of those lessons is that "success" in life is not measured by dollar signs.

Vote for me...I'm Rich...

I kinda wondered- but with all the *other* bs coming out of these pie holes- It sounded par for the course for my ears. Keep in mind, I think the whole political system is about as smart as a mayonnaise sandwich.

“And yet you find less wrong with obama in that regard? The person that can’t even speak without a teleprompter!”

Mitt does something incredibly stupid and your response is.

B-b-b-b but Obama uses a teleprompter. The Faux news attack point that is so incredibly idiotic only thumb sucking wall licking full on mentally handicapped person(Politically Correct Term) would think has any bearing on being president.

I will give you the benefit of doubt I THINK you are actually smarter than to give credence to the notion that preparing by writing out what you are going to say beforehand in a speech to the nation would be a bad thing however if you are being genuine about this being a concern to you I will point out all politicians and even your beloved Faux uses them as they are making those attacks.


WARNING FOUL LANGUAGE









“Please excuse me while I bang my head against the wall. ….. it will dull the pain….”


I hope your head feels better.




“Something tells me you have already made up your mind long before obama’s challenger was picked. You are just looking for any excuse to justify your choice, no mater how illogical that excuse may be..”

As for saying I had made up my mind before Romney was picked you couldn’t be more wrong. I have always been an independent voter and decide who I vote for based on their merits not the letter in front of their name.


I am not looking for an excuse to justify my choice but Romney’s actions are certainly re-enforcing it.

As far as calling my choice illogical I disagree unless you are looking to elect the candidate that has shown repeatedly he has no common sense and is advocating the continuation of the policies of Bush Junior administration tat lead us into two wars one that we are still fighting and the economic collapse of our country. I would call that illogical.




“The problem is, there is no one in existence that is truly perfect. We are all flawed to a large degree. The first thing you learn when dealing with other people is, everyone has baggage. A person that acts like they don’t is the one that is hiding the most. A person that tries to act like he is perfect (obama) is just acting, nothing more, nothing less. Everything he says is prescreened, and edited before time. He tries to create a pristine public image, and it fools people into believing he is truly perfect, or close to it.”

I agree that no one is perfect but you are on the correct website if you think everything Obama says is prescreened and edited before we see it. That would be a near impossibility I have seen him speak live and in person but you must be speaking metaphorically. I hope you were.




“So, in comparison, anyone that doesn’t try to portray that image is, in your mind, is stupid.”

You seem to think that I would consider anyone who doesn’t speak as eloquently as Obama would be stupid in my eyes and you would be Wong. When Romney says and does stupid things repeatedly not just on occasion that shows a trend and it speaks volumes to their character and intelligence.




“You will find no one on this planet that is educated in everything. No mater how smart someone is, you will find certain things that they do not know, or have never had to deal with, no mater how obvious the answer seems to you. The person that wants to believe those people are stupid will use those things to mock them, while ignoring all the other stuff they have done in life.”

I do not think that expecting a Presidential candidate to have common sense is too much to ask for.




“I prefer someone that will talk to you as an equal. Someone that will admit they don’t know everything. Someone that will admit their mistakes.”

That sounds great if you are looking for someone to marry but I am deciding on who I will vote for to run the country. I would also point out Romney does not seem interested in admitting when he is wrong.

Romney has a tendency to double down on his rhetoric when he makes a mistake like when he attacked Obama for a statement released by the embassy condemning the movie that sparked riots leading to the death of several US citizens either unaware or ignoring the fact that Obama had no hand in that. Earning him the reputation of shooting first and aiming later.




“What we need now is not an airplane engineer, or even someone experienced with flying on passenger planes. What we need is a business man that knows how to make the ends meet, or can tell when those ends won’t meet, and cut the losses while there is still time. “

I agree we do not need a pilot but I expect a presidential candidate to have common sense. The idea that the Presidency is best suited being run by a businessman is still up for debate and deserves a thread all its own however I have reservations with Romney’s history, credentials and practices while working at Bain Capital and sense he has been less than forthcoming with that information I am not looking that as favorable.




“His ability to be a great public speaker is unneeded, and unwanted as far as I am concerned.”


Public speaking should be essential for anyone to be an effective world leader maybe you forgot how much damage Bush did to how the US was looked at by the rest of the world. That was something I was very aware of because I travel quite a bit each year and I can attest to how bad it was.




“I, myself, am sick and tired of well polished talking figureheads. I would much rather have the local mechanic with a horrible southern accent as president than live through another four years of the well spoken idiot we have now.”

This explains a lot on why you would pick Romney. If you think Obama is an idiot I Really do not understand how you would give Romney the benefit of doubt.




“I just want someone who is blunt, honest and truthful. I will welcome them, and their baggage, what ever that baggage may be. I just want someone who can have a chance of fixing the problem, instead of ignoring it, and making it worse. Above all, I want someone who will tell me the truth. I want him to tell me what he is truly thinking.”

I am now confused as to why you would pick Romney. What would make you think he would do any of that? The only thing he has been consistent about has been how he changes his position.




“I don’t care if it’s wrong. If it’s wrong, I would prefer to know what he is thinking is wrong, instead of him just telling me what he thinks I want to hear, so that I will think everything is just peachy, when it’s not.”

I would prefer that the president be right and not tell me what he thinks. Romney has laid out what he thinks is wrong and advocates more trickledown economics. More Tax cuts for wealthy is not going to fix this country.

Romney is bound to a pledge he signed to never raise taxes. He is in the pocket of every corporation that has helped him buy the Republican primaries. He will never tell you what he really thinks. If you want to know his true thoughts there have been several recordings released to the public where he has made clear what his true thoughts are. You should watch them if your truly wish is to hear what he really thinks.
