I love the retro 90's feel of the Basketball ad!

I also like how that Crossroads GPS ad can't even bring itself to present a legitimate reason that a swing voter might claim to have backed Obama in 2008.  "He spoke so beautifully"?  Haha

Ha, "He was a great speaker. I mean, I'm just a housewife so clearly I'm not smart enough to decide who to vote for based on policy or issues that affect me!"

I think a lot of insiders in the GOP are the ones who are misinformed. They think that all of the swing voters who voted for Obama did so just because he gave beautiful speeches? Give me a break. Suburban swing voters like this woman aren't as stupid as Karl Rove would like to think they are. But hey, if campaign charisma and inspiring oratory are all it takes to win over a voter, then Romney should have NO problem at all, right???

He also said the words Hope and Change.   That was important for some reason, but I don't know what the reason was. 

Obama got a ton of votes because Sarah Palin's qualification for VP became more important than Obama's qualification for president for some stupid reason.  ...This unfortunately was the key issue of a typical 'very-informed' independent Obama voter.

***FALSE EQUIVALENCY ALERT!!!!!!***
Obama and Palin both had small amounts of national political experience, but Palin was always grossly more under qualified to be VP than Obama was to be President.

Just because someone isn't familiar with the issues doesn't mean that person can't be a good executive. I trust Palin more as a decision maker than Obama.

Again, lack of qualifications for VP became more important than lack of qualifications for President!!! 

People have had nearly 4 years to reflect on the stupidity of that dynamic.

Romney's narrator puts you to sleep.  He should have Hulk Hogan do the voiceovers.

I can guarantee you the majority of the American people are not regretting passing over Sarah Palin for VP.

I also guarantee the vast majority of Americans would have wildly preferred Hillary Clinton over Barack Obama, a man who had no qualifications to be President.

Bro, he was a professor of constitutional law and worked in community organizing and in the US Senate. That is not 'no qualifications' (it is, admittedly, 'considerably fewer on-paper qualifications than John McCain').

You must also remember in the case of this election that the concept of electing so-called captains of industry or business whizzes President does not, in this country, exactly have an illustrious history, nor one of achieving the desired results.

It actually bothers me when people call a guest lecturer --a professor. 

also by the Hilary Rosen standard that resume would be correctly described as:
 "He never worked a day in his life."

All right, lecturer. It wasn't like he just lectured once or twice though. He was there kind of a lot.

What? No it wouldn't. It clearly wouldn't. There's like twenty-five years of paid employment in there, what in God's name are you even talking about?

He held government office, lectured occasionally on the side, had a summer job in college...  You understand that it is easier to dismiss that "paid employment history" as not working (because most of it involved not working) than raising 5 boys right?  That is the simple concept I pointed out.  That is what I'm talking about.  Democrats hate when you apply their standards to themselves.  --I will say that candidate Obama has been part of some campaigns that required a lot of work.  That isn't "paid employment" though.

Are you genuinely obtuse and unable or unwilling to look up what being a community organizer at the level that Obama was actually involves or are you knowingly regurgitating fatuous rhetoric just because you think it scores some point?

I might add that you also don't seem to understand the actual context in which Hilary Rosen (whose general relevance as a person I still do not understand) accused Ann Romney of not having work experience, but I think we as a community have been over that ad nauseam with little to no discernible effect.

He made a lot of promises and under delivered...  I don't have a lot of experience doing that, but I don't want to have that on my record.  I wouldn't list my charitable work at a women's shelter, a food pantry, a voter registration drive, or a historical society as a qualification for POTUS, but that's just me.

This bears, of course, little resemblance to what being a community organizer, as a career or long-term paid position of any kind, actually entails.
