Romney should run as a democrat. He thinks just like them. Liberalism leads to mental illness. Ask Weiner or Spitzer or Edwards or Bill Clinton and you will get the same answer...CIGAR TUBES!

The unemployed in America need raise hell over the POTUS giggling at his waste of a trillion dollars while they remain out of work. The real recipients of stimulus were unions, fat cat contributors (especially Ambassador Gips) and any goofy research project that wandered by.

Yeah, and how about Larry Craig, Mark Foley, Jim Gibbons, David Vitter, Don Sherwood, Richard Curtis.....just to name a few Republicans who have been involved in sex scandals. Are they all mentally ill too? There is a rather long list of them.

(Rush Limbaugh, the long-term "mouth" for the Republican party is mentally ill, too..........right?)

I think the joke was meant to be tongue-in-cheek, nothing more.
Sometimes it helps to find some humor during bad times.

What each and every politician running for the presidency needs to do is live briefly with a family that is struggling with unemployment, a mortgage, rent payment or foreclosure, unpaid bills, no health insurance, putting food on the table, just trying to survive to get an inkling of what many Americans have to cope with.

The author of the comment should remember that words on a page have only the voice we give them as readers. Be assured, some readers will--as did I--give the words a serious voice. To be read tongue-in-cheek, there would need to be something funny about the content in any context, and there wasn't.

Where is you indignation towards the guy who mortgaged your kids' future. He too, remember, is a millionaire giggling like a schoolgirl after blowing a trillion bucks, and now wants to borrow more from China for some goofy program.

Only a moron would think this is anything but a desperate deflection from the left to take the heat off Obama for his idiot shovel remark. Talk about being out of touch...it was his gigantic failed program, you'd think he'd have enough sense not to joke about something the majority of the country didn't want and is quite ticked off about happening.

Yep.

But then, what else are they good for?....aside from bringing slippers to their massas?

And hating America, of course.
