1. At the end...

...they're basically telling that reporter "Don't dare hold Mitt accountable for his lies."

Hats off to that reporter for pushing back and standing up to the bullies.

wants to be president of the US. More reporters should ask the hard questions than playing to the Lemmings that vote under robotic control.

25. Opensecrets.org does an excellent job on this topic.

 

According to OpenSecrets.org the President will not take money from lobbyists and has no lobbyists on his staff, maybe some pacs. supporting the President have lobbyists on staff but the president has no knowledge of this. As a matter of fact should they find that a donation was made by a lobbyist the donation is promptly refunded.

Romney may not have lobbyists on his campaign staff, as he avows, but he gladly takes their donations.

There is always a link to these both on youtube and on DU. If you have a twitter account simply click on the twitter link, sign into your twitter account and tweet it. People who see it will re-tweet it.

Rmoney says he won't be beholden to "lobbyists"---but says nothing about the billionaires funding his campaign. I guess so long as they are not "lobbyists"--it's okay to be be beholden.

What stood out for me was Rmoney saying "Listen to my words". Pretty sure he said it more than once, but I'd have to watch again to be sure. "Listen to my words". Don't look at what he did, instead, "listen to my words".

41. The King of Mean does not disappoint. Wanna bet he called AP to get Glen fired by now?

That was the most telling video.. you can really see Mitt's short fuse. he can NOT handle any kind of dissent. Typical spoiled rich bully.

You can see him get visibly angry when they say that the store owner doesn't endorse him... and then he was so aggressive toward the reporter, did he not think that the cameras would catch that? (kudos to the camera person that realized what was happening and pulled the camera up.) And then his toady going over there to harass the reporter next.

Reporters are SUPPOSED to ask hard questions.. otherwise they're just a bunch of ass kissing worms like your campaign guy, and those women who were ALSO yelling at the AP reporter.

If you want to win an election, you can't be an asshole to reporters. How many of these videos do people need to see before they realize he's a hot headed narcissist? I recall that one during the primaries when he's at one of his sparsely attended rallies, and is arguing with hecklers. HATE that stupid laugh/snotty smirk thing he does.

How did the GOP end up with such an asshole for a candidate? Like I've said.. Bush was a disaster for this Country, but to most people he seemed likable... Hoping the Daily show is all over this.

44. Romney words his responses very carefully

He gives parameters to what he is asked and then responds within those parameters. He rewords the questions so he can answer with the truth and still sound innocent.

51. After the interview was over, Rmoney circled around (hunting behavior?)

and came back to the reporter to get in the reporters physical space, but then Romney backed off a couple of feet. It sure looked like a physical provocation to me, like he was trying to get the reporter to take a swing at him.

Dear Rmoney. If you wish to get someone to take a swing at you, don't back off.
