Jon Stewart “But, as predictable as one parties race is, the other nomination could still go to anyone.  Well, not anyone.”

Wolf Blitzer (CNN) “Republican Mitt Romney says he will not, repeat he will not run, make a third run for the White House.”

Stewart “Ha, well you know what, what do you know?  It turns out that sometimes unwanted people do self-deport.”

Mitt Romney slammed the Wolfeboro, N.H. police commissioner for calling President Obama the n-word and refusing to apologize.

“The vile epithet used and confirmed by the commissioner has no place in our community,” Romney, who owns a vacation home in Wolfeboro, said in a statement to the Boston Herald published on Saturday. “He should apologize and resign.”

After a town resident complained that she heard Police Commissioner Bob Copeland use the n-word when referring to Obama, Copeland confirmed that he did use the word.

“I believe I did use the ‘N’ word in reference to the current occupant of the Whitehouse (sic),” he wrote in an email to the resident, obtained by Manchester TV station WMUR. “For this, I do not apologize — he meets and exceeds my criteria for such.”

Scott Prouty, the bartender who recorded Mitt Romney’s 47% video

Prouty “I grew up in a blue collar area of Boston, and nobody I know, can pay, can afford to pay $50,000 for dinner…..I felt an obligation for all the people who can’t afford to be there, you shouldn’t have to be able to afford $50,000 to hear what a candidate actually thinks.”

Stewart “The candidates are also taking the chance to make  final arguments to the American voters.”

Obama “Mitt Romney (audience boos), no, no, no.  Don’t boo, vote.  Vote.  Voting is the best revenge.”

Romney “President Obama asked his supporters to vote for revenge…Instead, I ask the American people to vote for love of country.”

Stewart “I WANT THIS OVER!  I don’t know if its that comment, or maybe this is the milk that I drank from a bodega that lost power during the blackout, but I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.  By the way, if the American people could really vote for revenge or love of country, they’d be kicking both of your asses in the polls.”

Bill Maher “New Rule: America, before you get in bed with Mitt Romney, remember.  He may seem like a nice fella from what we know about his core beliefs, nothing, his tax plan, nothing, his faith, off limits, his donors, anonymous.  But, a compulsive liar who’s whole life is secret can get you worse diseases than Romnesia.”

Mitt Romney Aug 23 “The government of the United States is not a very good venture capitalist.”

Romney speech Oct 3 “He believes in picking winners and losers.  He put money in a whole mess of companies, about 90 billion dollars into green energy companies like Solindra and Tesla…A friend of mine said he doesn’t just like picking winners and losers, he likes picking losers.”

Romney at debate Oct 3 “Half of them, the ones that have been invested in, have gone out of business.”

Stewart “Holy crap!  Is that true?  Half?  63 energy companies got significant federal stimulus money, and 3 1/2 years later, 5 have gone bankrupt.  So that’s half.  50%.  That’s amazing, that’s, what?  That’s not the same number?  Oh, it’s actually 8%.  Man, I really have to get a new Zune, and then sell it, and get a calculator.  Wow, 8% bankruptcy rate.  Still, maybe that doesn’t sound so bad, but compare that to Mitt Romney, top notch Bain Capital venture capitalist.”

Anderson Cooper “The Wall St Journal did some digging for today’s paper.  It looked at 77 businesses that Bain invested in, while Romney led the firm.  22% of those companies filed for bankruptcy or closed 8 years after the Bain investments.”

Stewart “See 22% to 8% for the government.  The government can’t even beat Mitt Romney at picking failure.”

Bill Maher talking about Romney at the debate “At one point he said to the President of the United States, he said ‘hang on, you’ll get your chance’.  Should not be surprised.  The Mormon church has been saying this to black people for decades.  Oh, I kid the Mormons.  I love the Mormons.  Mitt and the Mormons had some pretty good news today.  Billy Graham, who’s 112, took Mormonism off his website list of cults.  This is so typical of the Christian right stance on Mitt Romney.  They still believe he will go to hell for all eternity, but in this life, they’d like a tax cut.”

Mitt Romney, 10/3/12:I will not reduce the taxes paid by high income Americans.Mitt Romney, 2/22/12: There were so many misrepresentations in there it’s going to take me a little while. Number one, I said today that we’re going to cut taxes on everyone across the country by twenty percent—including the top one percent.

Mitt Romney, 10/3/12: The key to great schools? Great teachers. So I reject the idea that I don’t believe in great teachers or more teachers.

Mitt Romney, 6/8/12: He says we need more firemen, more policemen, more teachers. Did he not get the message of Wisconsin? The American people did. It’s time for us to cut back on government.

Mitt Romney, 10/3/12: Actually, it’s a lengthy description, but number one, pre-existing conditions are covered under my plan.

Mitt Romney, 3/27/12: If they’re 45 years old and they show up and they say I want insurance because I’ve got heart disease, it’s like: “Hey guys, we can’t play the game like that.” You’ve got to get insurance when you’re well, and then if you get ill, then you’re going to be covered.

David Letterman “Ever since we’ve been on the air, we’ve had the candidate for election as a guest on the show.  And, sometimes they win, sometimes they don’t win, but they’ve always been here.  In Bob Dole’s case, remember he came on the very day after the election when he lost.  He couldn’t have been more charming, and everybody said wait a minute, let me rethink my vote, but it was too late.  So, a couple weeks ago we had President Obama who was on the show.  He’s running for the office.  33 days ’til the election?  36.  36days ’til election, we have not heard from Mitt Romney and his people.  They have an open invitation to be here.  36 days remaining, he’s going to have to…you know, if you want to be in the White House, you’ve gotta sit right over there and talk to me.  I’m sorry, it’s the way it is.  So, Mitt is on record as saying when he gets to be President the first thing he will do, is he will talk tough to China.  He will put China in their place.  (Letterman points to his guest chair) Really?  What about that?  What about over there, Mitt?  He can handle China, but he can’t handle me.”

Fareed Zakaria “But, first, here’s my take. President Obama has surged in the polls in recent weeks and Republicans have been quick to identify the problem: Mitt Romney. The columnist Peggy Noonan eloquently voiced what many conservatives believe when she said that Romney’s campaign has been a “rolling calamity.”

And yet, shouldn’t it puzzle us that Romney’s campaign is so “incompetent”, as Noonan calls it, given his deserved reputation for, well, competence? After all, he founded one of this country’s most successful financial firms, turned around the flailing Salt Lake City Olympics and was a very successful governor. How did he get so clumsy so fast?

In fact, the problem is not Romney but the new Republican Party. Given the direction in which it has moved and the pressures from its most extreme, yet most powerful elements, any nominee would face the same challenge. Can you be a serious candidate for the general election while not outraging the Republican base?

Fox News anchor, Brit Hume, complained recently that Romney refused to dwell at any length on the economic policies that he would put in place. Well, why won’t Romney, an intelligent man, fluent in economics, explain his economic policy? Because any sensible answer would cause a firestorm in his party.

It’s obvious that, with a deficit of more than 7 percent of gross domestic product, any solution to our budgetary problems has to involve both spending cuts and tax increases. Ronald Reagan agreed to tax increases when the deficit hit 4 percent of GDP; George H.W. Bush did so when the deficit was 3 percent of GDP.

But today’s Republican Party is organized around the proposition that, no matter the circumstances, there must never be a tax increase of any kind. The Simpson-Bowles proposal calls for $1 of tax increases for every $3 of spending cuts.

But every Republican presidential candidate during the primaries, including Romney, pledged that he or she would not accept $10 of spending cuts if that meant a dollar of tax increases.

So Romney could present a serious economic plan with numbers that add up and then face a revolt within his own party. So his solution has been to be utterly vague about how he would deal with the deficit.

When pressed for details recently, he said, “The devil’s in the details.” He’s right. Were he to get specific, he would be committing ideological blasphemy. So instead he talks vaguely about freedom and capitalism.”
