Romney cowardice

When this election is over, we're going to ask the Republicans to apologize to every American for the disrespect they've shown to all of us by trying to make this election an appeal to race hate.

They can make all the childish excuses they want, but as adults, we understand what they're doing. Even on the debate stage, when Romney talked to the President of the United States as if he was one of his children, and said it exactly that way.

You know, of all the nasty shit Romney said in the 47 percent thing, the worst thing he said was this: "I'll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives."

That's so self-important, even for a President, to think that somehow it's up to him to convince the rest of us to do anything, much less such personally offensive and outrageously condescending, patronizing, arrogant, irrelevent, egotistic ideas. Imagine if Obama had be caught saying something like that. The hooting would never stop.

It's up to us, Mr. Romney, to convince you to slither back into the hole you crawled out of. You sorry excuse for an American. Get a real job. Create something. Do something real with your life. How can I convince you to take personal responsibilty for the nasty shit you say, Mr. Romney.

BTW, now that he says it was totally wrong, let's find out exactly what was wrong with it -- line by line. Each statement in that rant.
