3. Mitt Romney didn't say "I like to fire people"

 

Why do so many people, here and elsewhere, find it necessary to dishonestly say that he did? He said "I like to be able to fire people", which is a very different thing, especially in the context he used it, and is a sentiment shared by just about everyone, if you stop and think about it.

There are more than enough dumb things that Romney actually said to tear him down without having to make stuff up. It just makes liberals look silly when they do.

4. The exact quote was "I like being able to fire people who provide services to me..."

and yes, you're right, it's stupid for anyone to pull it out of context.
But you know darn well they'd crucify Obama just the same if he made a ridiculous comment along these lines.

5. And Al Gore didn't say "I invented the Internet"

I'll be happy to listen to complaints about a Republican being taken out of context when they stop taking Democrats out of context.

6. Nor did President Obama "say"

If we don't stop talking about the economy we're going to lose, but that didn't stop the Romney campaign for pretending that he did.

Unilateral disarmament is not a good idea.

10. Agreed.

Besides, these are political cartoonists, not professional journalists.

13. I don't think the context helps there. The sentiment is the same, & the full statement

was disingenuous to begin with. Romney has and likely still does enjoy being "able to fire people" in all kinds of contexts. His decision to dishonestly cloak healthcare issues in the context of the joys of the power to "fire" is legitimately revealing. He has always been the firer. He thinks of corporations as "people," and feels entitled to extract wealth from others by leveraging the ability to fire against them. It's a real hobby of his.

And the idea that rolling back our meager healthcare reforms in favor of the Republican's deliberately false vision of a "free market" of insurance (in which the insurers, not the consumers would hold all the power to "fire" doesn't exactly turn the statement on its ear.

15. Face it...you, me and everyone else

 

on this board likes being able to fire people in exactly the same way that Romney expressed, and we do it all the time.

11. The last one caught me by surprise

But it did make me chuckle. I forgot that there even technically were Democratic primaries this year.
