When Romney loses the election

The Teabaggers are going to instantly dispose him. Republicans will engage in hate and fear mongering and of coarse blame him. The religious Right will accuse him of being Satan himself.... Well. it's true. Wait and see.

1. I am sure they will blame him

They can't really stand him anyway, they only support him because they hate president Obama and the republican party gave them a bunch of "clowns" to run for the nomination, and Romney won, even though the teaparty and the religious right did all they could to try and get someone more "christian" and "crazy" as the nominee.

I still think a lot of teabaggers and religious zealots won't vote for him, but they say they will.

12. He is blame-worthy, too.

After losing to McCain last time, Romney inserted his people into the rules-making process for the next primary season, arranging it so that he would gain momentum all the way down to the cherry on top, Utah, as the last primary election--just in case.

I think it is an interesting indication of his character that, after being defeated, Romney did not examine the flaws in his personal makeup, but rather turned his attention to how he could game the table to his advantage the next time... while still being a douchebag.

14. Except one thing:

Romney never liked answering to shareholders, either, and gamed the table in his predatory capitalist operations so that they never had a say, exactly as he gamed it so that Republican voters wouldn't have a say, either.

But the shareholders of the United States of America have a say, all right. So the next question one might ask is, "how does Romney plan to take this decision away from the American people?"

Because if they're in a position to make it, the American people are going to tell him to f$^& off.

The scary part is that he probably knows that.

15. That's because Romney believes he will become a god

as do all faithful Mormons.

"On the other hand, the whole design of the gospel is to lead us onward and upward to greater achievement, even, eventually, to godhood. This great possibility was enunciated by the Prophet Joseph Smith in the King Follet sermon and emphasized by President Lorenzo Snow. It is this grand and incomparable concept: As God now is, man may become!"
- Prophet Gordon B. Hinckley, General Conference, October 1994

2. They will be like angry toddlers screaming and spinning

On their back, in the Walmart parking lot, because mommy didn't get them candy.

7. Exactly!

And they will blame Romney--"it's because we didn't nominate a True Conservative!" he will become a pariah of the party like Bush is now.
They will scream, howl and stamp their feet, like my 2-year-old granddaughter when she dosen't get her way.
I can't wait.

3. I fear a total meltdown in the mental health of these people when they lose and have to face

ANOTHER four years of a black president!

I am hoping this will not result in a spate of violence in some areas of the country, but I am beginning to wonder if their mental health conditions are even worse than we suspect...and Obama's re-election might just push some of them over the edge...

5. I'm so going to send every available picture of Michelle Obama to my teabagging sister.

 

I hinted that her attacks on our President were race based, and she when back, down into the depths of hell and attacked me with some horrible shit.

Obama's re-election is going to be a personal triumph. I also promised her that a bunch of the Teabaggers who got elected in 2010 were going to lost their seats. Don't make a liar out of me.

9. Re-election of Obama would be a complete surprise

I live in Texas and have many friends and relatives that are convinced that Romney will win by a landslide! If I mention any polls to the contrary, they say that polls are designed by liberals to push the Obama agenda. If I mention a Rasmussen poll that might show Obama winning, they say "I don't believe that." They spout bumpersticker sound bites, and they absolutely believe Obama is losing now and will lose big time in November. If that does not happen, the degree of disappointment and anger I fear will lead some folks on the other side (hopefully not my friends and relatives) to get out their guns, and we have a whole lot of guns down here.

11. They were just as oblivious in 2008

Rush told them that Palin was getting bigger crowds and that the polls didn't matter, etc.

I think half the reason they hate Obama so much is that his landslide election took them by complete surprise.

They truly thought they had a permanent majority and that a dreaded lib'rul would never, ever be president again.
Karl Rove said so, durn it!

These are idiots who repeatedly claimed "George W. Boosh was chosen by God," after all.

That's why the baggers have been deranged and obsessed with asinine theories as to how it can't possibly be true that the Amurican people would reject the GOP for the Democrats (birtherism, "ACORN stole it!," "the media didn't vet him!" and other baseless nonsense)

17. Numbers don't lie but people do

I know TX is RED like TN is where I'm from. But that's ok. I look on tv at people who are "sick and tired" of what's going on and several of them have expressed their "distrust" for Romney. He hasn't released his tax returns, we're shown what happened at Bain, he said a while ago "let Detroit go bankrupt", and then he embarrasses himself in Britain, Israel and Poland. Anybody with good sense doesn't want a president that will make the WHOLE NATION look bad. We just have to hope nothing drastic will happen between now and November that will cause a tremendous change in public opinion...

4. Fine, but if we can figure out a way to get them to blame electronic voting, it's win/win. nt

8. Except they will blame "furiners, terraists, and dead people voting" first.

Then comes another round of voter suppression. All evil, all the time.

16. I'm telling you all, prepare yourselves

especially those of us in Red states

These crazy mother fuckers are not "cleaning up for prime time". They are doubling down, they are angry, they are armed, and they are incredibly stupid. That is SUCH a bad combination, it can't be over-emphasized.

Get some of those 5 gallon drums of water they sell at the big box stores, a shit load of canned goods, and something with which to protect yourselves. The worst that can happen is nothing, and you have a bunch of filtered water to drink. Bummer.

18. I wish I could say that y'all need to loosen your tin foil hats.

But, being another red state dweller, I'm seeing exactly what you are describing. These people are nuts. The "deranged" in "Obama Derangement Syndrome" is a gross understatement. We'd be a lot safer if they were only deranged.
