While in California, Romney says Obama wants to make America "become California".

Romney, at his fundraiser near San Diego, said Obama was "taking Americans on a course that is extremely foreign to us."

"One would suggest that government knows better than free people," he said. "It's a pathway to become like Europe, and Europe doesn't work there. It's never going to work here. It's even possible we could be on a pathway to become California - I don't want that either."

37. I took in a woman (no strings) who walked out on her boyfriend and needed a place to crash...

 

She was all upset so after listening for a while I said, "Do you know what you need?"

She gave me a dirty look and said, "Okay, what do YOU think I need?" (thinking the obvious)

I said, "You need to go take a walk on the beach,...ALONE."

She looked at me like it was the last thing she had expected me to say.

She went all right and came back all reset and ready to go back and try to work things out.

Caught up with her a few years later and she's with another guy.

107. Nice photos! I'm an Oregonian and we've got some pretty cool beaches here, too.

My vote if R***** heads this way? Stop him at the border, check his papers and insist he self-deport to Mexico. With that tan of his, he's gotta be an "illegal", right? Too bad the space shuttle program is over. He'd be a perfect candidate for the next lift-off, preferably on a one-way trip.

I have a good friend who lives in Huntington Beach and he assures me it's awesome. Looks to me like they all are. Thanks for this video!

29. Willard was born to be a diplomat. Or the leader of a nation.



Well, he insulted London in London. California in California. A PA baker to his face.... The only people he has insulted behind closed doors include 47% of the country.

Willard needs to stay far, far away from diplomacy. And people. Far, far away from people. He needs to live alone on top of a mountain, somewhere. Without even a goat for company. That might be safe enough.

Which pays a lion's share of federal, Social Security and Medicare taxes to support the red state idiots that are falling over themselves to vote for Romney. Which has one of the top ten economies in the world. Which has produced a lion's share of out technical innovation for the last fifty years. Romney is an idiot.

A course that is extremely foreign to whom?

Repukes talk really crazy shit, like when they say something like the United States may become like Europe. WTH? The current dominant culture of this country is composed of descendants of Europeans!

What the hell are they saying and why are they saying it? I think they just like to hear themselves talk and they like confrontation - that's the only way to explain the stooooo-pid stuff that comes out of their mouths.

61. Good point. I have wondered why Romney didn't buy a house.

On the Louisiana coast, or the Mississippi coast, or the Alabama coast, or the north Florida coast. The people in all those places are mostly republican voting Romney people. If Romney lived in those places he would not have to be an ass and ridicule his neighbors. Romney chose California because life there is better than any of the places that I listed. Another gem from the flip-flopper in chief.

21. Why did he even go on Univision?

 

If he had said Detroit, everyone would immediately recognize the "dog whistle". Indeed, that is why the GOP no longer uses Detroit (they commonly did at one time). It is just too obvious.

Does he think that hispanics are stupid?

He has lost California anyway so he probably didn't think of it as a political risk. The problem is that there is always political risk.


Another thing.

Why is the GOP message always one of division? Division by class. Division by color. Division by religion. Division by state.

How often can you offend various groups and retain long term viability? Are there enough angry old white men to do this?

Look at past elections.

California voted solid GOP for decades. Twice for Nixon and it was his home state, we voted for Ford, Twice for Reagan, again, his home state, and voted for George H. W. Bush.

Then we voted for Clinton and all of the sudden we were called "The Left Coast" and our 55 Electoral Votes have been written off for all time and we are described as the worse place you could possibly want to be in the entire nation because we want clean cars and enjoy sex.

Has anyone ever seen this level of stupidity from a candidate before? He's like a stupid factory that churns out stupid 24/7. The people tasked with cataloging the stupid things he's done and said must be weeping with exhaustion at this point.

67. It all started with Reagan. That was when Republicans decided the Presidency was,...

 

....was only the PR Department of the US Government. They HATED George Herbert Walker Bush because he had the nerve to think that he was in charge. They absolutely HATED Clinton because he WAS in charge and they LOVED George W Bush because it didn't even occur to him that he could be in charge.

After his aircraft carrier landing he said he was happy they let him do that. I thought at the time, "WTF??? You are the one that's supposed to be running the show! You had to get PERMISSION??" Then I found out soon after the idiot wanted to have a grand parade through Washington with thousands of troops in dress uniforms holding flags with jets flying overhead and they wouldn't let him do that.

Republicans want a PR guy that will sell America unpopular policies disguised as something America wants.

Listen to this as an example:

idiot is still at it.

Romney raised $6 million at the Saturday evening event that attracted celebrities Dennis Miller and Gary Sinise. Before a group of more than 1,000 California Republicans, Romney kept up his criticism of the president for fostering what Romney said was a culture of dependency.

"This is a tough time. These are our brothers and sisters. These are not statistics. These are people," Romney declared. "The president's policies - these big-government, big-tax monolithic policies - are not working."

Remember, he's not interested in the rest of us.

I live in southern California and know lots of conservatives, and believe me, they hate California. (Kind of like the way they live in the US but hate half of Americans.) I want to tell them to get the hell out then, but I'm usually too polite. They're always grumbling and groaning about the high taxes here and the way California has such an "anti-business climate" with all the regulations and such. Oh and don't even start them on illegal immigration. Still, I don't see them going anywhere. They seem happy enough to stay.

Personally, I love California.

Screw you, Mitt. I thought I smelled something like sulfur in the air the other day.

87. I know some like that too here in Orange County.

 

Especially in Tustin, Costa Mesa and Anaheim Hills. The ones in Irvine are some of the worse. They share a border with Santa Ana and they act like everything east of the freeway is "The Barrio" and act like anyone that isn't a well scrubbed lily white is there to steal. They drive SUVs like they are sports cars and BELIEVE they OWN the road because their taxes paid for it. The Mercedes Benz is known locally as "The Newport Nova" because they're so common. A lot of older ones end up being driven by people who work at low paying jobs. I know a guy who has one that currently works at a car wash. This is because the rich here look at each others cars as a status symbol. Having one even three years old is considered to be sign that you aren't making much and it's ALL about flaunting your wealth so the poor people end up with their "hand me downs". You should see the rich strut at Fashion Island. If you want to REALLY see the rich you go to the Beverly Center in LA. Last time I was there I saw two 9 foot ceramic storks selling for $45,000,...each.

You know that expression, "Keeping up with the Joneses"? These guys are trying to keep up with the Rockefellers. They feel it's their DUTY to let New York know the West Coast is as rich and as cultured as they are.

I'm the one that came up with this gem when I was on ATJ: "Q: How do you attract an Orange County Girl? A: Stuff a sock in your wallet"

I have visited California any number of times. Two of my brothers and one of my sisters have lived there. It's a perfectly nice state. Now, personally, I have no desire to live there, but that's just me. However, other than high housing costs in too many parts, and a population density in parts that I wouldn't want to be in, there's nothing that terrible about the state.

I like to say that we have fifty wonderful states in this great country of ours. Every time I think about the ones I say you couldn't pay me to live there, I'll come across someone who truly LOVES that state. And I just get reminded all over again about how we're all different.

About the only thing wrong with the whole country "becoming California" might be that it would be a little boring, but then that state has quite a lot of diversity of everything, so I'm probably wrong there.

It's turning out Romney's not that smart. How do you say something like that when you're courting voters in California? He also just asked aloud about the fire on Ann's plane and her not being able to get fresh air, "why don't they make it so the windows open on airliners (he actually used the word aircraft).
