That is just so silly, serving no useful purpose. If the person’s intent was to embarrass Romney it back fired, because he handled being glittered with aplomb.

Erickson's motivations seem to lie with immigration - his father was reportedly deported to Colombia.

Typical glitter litter and public trash by a lib. Glitter is technically celebratory confetti but this idiot wouldn't know.

When Mitt Romney says that he’s not a bit concerned about the poor that strikes many as a very odd comment; there is something very sinister and disturbing about a man who heartlessly terrorized his own dog causing his pet to lose control of his bowels because it was strapped to the roof of his station wagon… who then says things like “don’t try to stop the forecloser on millions of Americans; let it run its course” (kick people out of the home they own, then turn around and rent it to them).

It's kind of like when Bush said the Iraqis would welcome us with flowers and they threw shoes at him. Oh, and weren't they supposed to pay for the war with their oil??? Some people are so dumb, they will buy anything.

Obama Signs Global Internet Treaty Worse Than SOPA
·
White House bypasses Senate to ink agreement that could allow Chinese companies to demand ISPs remove web content in US with no legal oversight

Paul Joseph Watson

Thursday, January 26, 2012

Months before the debate about Internet censorship raged as SOPA and PIPA dominated the concerns of web users, President Obama signed an international treaty that would allow companies in China or any other country in the world to demand ISPs remove web content in the US with no legal oversight whatsoever.

The Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement was signed by Obama on October 1 2011, yet is currently the subject of a White House petition demanding Senators be forced to ratify the treaty. The White House has circumvented the necessity to have the treaty confirmed by lawmakers by presenting it an as “executive agreement,” although legal scholars have highlighted the dubious nature of this characterization....

In presenting ACTA as an “international agreement” rather than a treaty, the Obama administration managed to circumvent the legislative process and avoid having to get Senate approval, a method questioned by Senator Wyden.

“That said, even if Obama has declared ACTA an executive agreement (while those in Europe insist that it’s a binding treaty), there is a very real Constitutional question here: can it actually be an executive agreement?” asks TechDirt.“The law is clear that the only things that can be covered by executive agreements are things that involve items that are solely under the President’s mandate.

That is, you can’t sign an executive agreement that impacts the things Congress has control over. But here’s the thing: intellectual property, in Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution, is an issue given to Congress, not the President.

Thus, there’s a pretty strong argument that the president legally cannot sign any intellectual property agreements as an executive agreement and, instead, must submit them to the Senate.”.
