Romney's offensive gaffe could decide election (vanity)
Associated Posers | 9-18-2012 | geronl

Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney's campaign is in disarray after off-the-cuff remarks at an elementary school appearance were made public today by the Palatine Paw Print student newspaper. Democrats say this could be the end of any chance of winning the election the gaffe-ridden Romney campaign had.

"We know the sky is blue and the grass is green... and it is science that tells us how this is" Romney told the class of students.

One teacher who was present and refuses to be named said "It was shockingly inappropriate" and "If we had known he would veer into that kind of territory he would never have been invited"

"We would never allow our students to limit themselves to what really is, we want them to feel free to use their imaginations in science class just as we do in sex-ed".

Experts we spoke to say that using logic and facts in a classroom can have deleterious affects on children.

Joyce Rogers Chesterson-Smith explains "Focusing on the limitations of the so-called 'real world' at such a young age can close the minds of youth for their whole life. We want them to explore their imaginations and not limit themselves to the artificial constraints of the white male hegemony".

Principal Austin Weiner tells this reporter that since the news of Mitt Romney's comments broke he has been deluged with calls from angry parents. "They feel he has traumatized their children, and we agree of course, we always agree"

One parent who did not want to be identified said he daughter Susie locked her play date out of her room that night "It put her off sex for sure. I'm thinking of suing the school, the county, the state and Mitt Romney. My lawyer says there is millions in this"

Mitt Romney is also alleged to have said that "2+2=4" and that the students were perplexed by this.

A teacher explains "This is the kind of racist and insensitive remark we have come to expect from Republicans, but we thought he would be more reserved in front of children. We all agreed that this was the most blatantly offensive thing that has ever happened here"

The consensus is that this controversy, one of many in the Romney campaign, could finish him off for good.

No, I find them much too adorable to eat.

Also, being a life long southerner, I fear it’s too cold for me there.

If I went there and established the Free Republic of Antartica, it would only be a short time before Evil men smell freedom and come to snuff it out, so may as well face them here.

The only thing I know for certain at this point is that such a show down looms right over the horizon. It could be tomorrow...

Nice try but you don't have facts on your side. If you think the 47% are ALL willing to be there and the ones who are willing dole collectors are all going to turn out think again.
They have lived thought Republican administrations and the know the Democrat scare stories are lies. They are cunning street people who see no connection to America. They have failed to vote in the past and nothing changed. They will fail to vote this time and will be wrong about that, but you won't believe that.
The only place this “gaffe” means anything is here and in the liberal media newsrooms.
Remember how “Bain” “Show us your tax returns” “Off shore bank accounts “ and my favorite failure “Romney is a felon” were suppose to Romney's campaign? When was the last time you any of that crap? Now you think THIS will be meaningful? Please.

Liberals and the MSM are SO lost and helpless at this point, that they are trying to make political capital out of things which, in the normal political process, go under the heading of ‘campaigning’.

Every candidate (Republican OR Democrat) has a right and DUTY to express himself/herself as clearly and succintly as possible ... and that’s just what Mitt is doing.

Don’t like it? Tough!

I don’t know what Romney was thinking. Everbody knows facts and truth have no place in a presidential election.

That ‘whooshing’ sound you hear is the point going over your head.

Good job, not quite John Semmens level, but good nonetheless.

Like the Associated Posers. Might have to crib that one.

Nice work! This is exactly the angle we need to play up. The truth is offensive to liberals.

I’m just about to post my two cents on this 47% meme.

Oh, and he's one of us.

“I also agree with Mitt stating that the Palestinians have no interest in a two state peace with Israel... and that was not a gaff either”.

LLS

Maybe I missed it but what part of what I said makes you think I didn't like what he said. Go look at my posts since this morning and get back to me. As long as Mitt or anyone speaks truth to the evil of obama... I have their back.
