Some Things Are Too Good To Pass Up, Even In Politics

There is so much garbage in politics today that it’s a huge waste of energy for most of us to pay any attention. However occasionally there comes an event where we just cannot avert our eyes or plug our ears. This is one of them:

Whatever you think of politics, parties, or candidates, that has to be the most stupid utterance by any candidate trying to win votes. I predict it will be the first neutron triggering a dramatic chain reaction of events in Romney’s fall from grace. There is no doubt it was the first or second neutron with the crap about Obama siding with the enemy in the Middle East vying for first or second place. This neutron has the advantage in the election that he clearly shows disdain for the voters. Giving Obama a solid base while Romney’s erodes is suicidal or crazy.

Several smart people have stated that if you want people to think highly of you keep your mouth shut. Romney should heed that advice. Will any thoughtful person vote in November thinking Romney is a wise and thoughtful man?

Questions remain:

  • Will the GOP recall their candidate before the election?
  • Will their VP candidate become the presidential candidate?
  • Will USA become a one-party state?

Sure, some of those questions are flippant but, really, is there any party remaining in the race except the Democrats?

    @Ivan:
    He wasn’t talking about Canada. Stop putting words in his mouth.

    Nice troll, Bob. It’s almost as if you believe Canada has no social problems.

  3. Mats Hagglund mentioned, “American fascism”.

    I think that’s half the problem here. I was watching some US politics the other day when the superiority of US ingenuity was brought up as if the rest of the world owed them a living. The US imports a lot of brains last I checked and they want more. They want that because most of the ingenuity on Earth is not in USA.

    USA has done a lot of really stupid innovations like:

  4. M$
  5. software patents
  6. protectionism and subsidies galore while touting themselves as “free market” people
  7. People who live in glass houses should not throw stones and USA should not be self-congratulatory about being smart. Then they have the nerve to tell the world how the world should do things… Sigh. USA is the crashing bore at a party.

    When I was young, it was true that USA had better technology and innovation than much of the world because people from all over the world were investing in USA and exporting brains there. The “brain-drain” was real. No longer. Now USA imports drug-dealers and prints money instead of manufacturing. There are exceptions like Lincoln Electric but the huge unemployment and lack of medical insurance and prolonged issues with the Middle East and Iraq and unsound federal budgets are entirely made-in-USA boondoggles.

    The world can and does make its own IT and it’s often better than the default trash the USA would have us use. The world cooperatively creates GNU/Linux and FLOSS and the USA is one of the biggest users while telling the world it is “cancer” and “pirated” and “amateurish” etc.
