Romney supporters try to explain why they support Romney.

Via on Nov 6, 2012

Ah, Bullshit Mountain.

I admire this man for getting a little dialogue going, for his poker face—and for his ability to converse and smile through it all.

Obama: that Buddhist, Muslim, atheist Communist who hates Americans so much and is so divisive:

    Difficult to know whether to laugh or cry.
    Imagine if aliens came down to earth and this was their first contact with human beings…

    Oh my, this was disturbing to watch.

    These people are supporting Romney because, like him, they don't know what they're talking about.

    Somehow, I can't imagine ever thinking or saying what these people say in this video … under ANY circumstances; including wealth. When I'd been a lot younger (and knew less), I used to say "I'm a centrist: me and personal wealth of just $250,000 more (probably close to $1 M "poor" millionaire chicken feed in today's dollars) than what I have now (low 5 figs), and I'd be a Republican for sure."

    Now… never!! Centrists cannot exist in this climate, for obvious reasons.

    Yipes … after 90 minutes of yoga practice … my mat time never compromised by listening to election returns or any news … I can feel these people in the video. They are scared.

    I don't agree with what they do to go about dealing with their fears. And, obviously, they are birthers and have conspiracy theories that feed into their actions …

    He is all three!!! Lol

    These people certainly do not inspire confidence in me, but I am sure the same video could be made with Obama supporters. I also think that both parties have adherents who can knowledgeably and eloquently explain why they support their candidate. I think that Obama supporters need to temper their victory with compassionate and Romney supporters need to adopt an attitude of cooperation. I am striving to understand why people voted for the "other candidate" because I feel strongly the need to shift honestly to middle ground with my fellow citizens. This video does not inspire in me compassion for the side I am trying to understand. If feels like mockery
