A Florida voter defends his candidate, Mitt Romney, to Slate’s Dave Weigel.
We give up.
I’m so tired of politicians spin-doctoring and exploiting their life stories to gain the sympathy/respect of the voting public. Are we all this stupid? Being born in a country does not mean your parents were citizens of that country. It just means your mom happened to go into labor when she was there. (Or grandmother in Mitt’s case.) And WTF? Does his father being born in Mexico give him some sort of street cred I’m not aware of? Why does this matter? He’s not running to be the president of Mexico. And frankly, it’s disgusting because he is suggesting that everyone born in Mexico is poor (not true) and that being born there and then making something of yourself is some feat of miraculous grandeur (also not true). To me, that’s truly insulting to the people of Mexico.
I am so frightened of the future right now. The wealthy, elitist liars will truly inherit the earth. What’s left of it.
I’m doing well! Kind of bored and my cat really wanted to be snuggled so I’m being lazy today. Thanks for asking! Things with GUW are definitely going! It’s been a slow process but it’s getting there and hopefully in the next month or so I’ll be able to announce launch info in an official capacity. Building a website of this nature by today’s standards is super hard, but we’re a determined bunch!
