I like that they are running it becasue they think he is the only sane Republican, and so showing he's sane will put off primary voters.
but I was quoting TJ walker: http://slatest.slate.com/posts/2011/12/14/french_mitt_romney_attack_ad_video_american_lp_airs_ad_featuring_romney_s_olympic_promotional_video_.html
I don't think I'm crazy to say the Republican field is very, very weak, Ron Paul is okish, but if I were a voter I'd probably spoil my ballot.
Events dear boy, events.
even if the winner does beat Obama, it would change my mind that it is a rather weak field. And I'll bet you $10,000 that they don't ;-)
You're being very confrontational.
How'd that one work out you pals?
but I don't think they will.
still the implication of the newsclip is that its a bad thing
I think the point is that the Democrats want to bounce Republicans into not voting for Romney, because they are xenophobic and suspicious of intelligence.
And during the 2004 presidential campaign, some Republicans accused John Kerry of looking French to portray him as elite, effete, and out of touch
so yknow like be nice
you should be pleased that theyre going in for this stuff
isnt this what you think politics is all about
(after usurping Ian Hythe and Ian Dymchurch in a hostile takeover in the mid-90s).
He’s planning on building a second Channel Tunnel, through which his light railway steam trains will run. Hence the ability to speak French.
There's been a series of Republican candidate debates on tv where they've just constantly bashed Obama. When the Republican candidate is set in stone, they'll start being attacked too, in a more focused way.
I'd be shocked if the odds really were 50-50.
Current odds of Obama winning
William Hill 8/11
Paddy Power 10/11
Nothing close to 50/50.
10/11 is almost 50/50 isn't it? Ooops, idiot.
So I got used to the decimals and forgot basic fraction maths!
I've really not been following things nearly as much as I'd like this time. I've not seen a single one of the Republican debates. Whereas four years ago I was sitting up watching CNN regularly and I already had a bet in on Obama.
Whether it's a Democrat or a Republican in the White House, it doesn't matter, since they are all the same.
The only one who seems different is Ron Paul, but I suppose their is no chance of him being even the Republican candidate for US president, let alone being elected as the next US president.
even a revolution would not help.
You've not been paying much attention to American politics for the last few decades, have you?
I don't think he will be the nominee, but he has a better chance than most people think.
I actually think he'll win Iowa.
i thought you mean physically.
