Mitt Romney's halo
« on: September 28, 2012, 02:22:43 AM »

Does Mitt Romney have a full-body halo, or is this just bad Photoshopping? Was Romney even there, or is this a copy & paste job gone awry?  I think we should be told  ;)

No, it is real.

Only the candidates doing everything they can not to be elected get the halo.  ;)

Cheers,
Bernard

I wondered whether it was a side-effect of his magic underwear. Some sort of nuclear force or something. If it is, he should wear Y-fronts; they prevent fall-out.

I read that the last time around he was second best to senator McClain and McClain was second best to George W Bush before that. A fine CV? ::)

He was not really there - it was his warp-image

Itís the only way he can appear to be brighter than concrete.

He had Ready-Brek for breakfast, Bill! Didn't you ever see the adverts?

I heard that he was once stopped in his car by the police and found to be carrying his pet dog in a box strapped onto the roof of his car. I don't live in the US, but if I did and this is true, then he wouldn't be getting my vote.

I think there are more compelling reasons not to vote for him than that? :(

There are plenty of reasons not to vote for either of the two main candidates.

You don't have to vote (assuming you are a gringo). Here in Australia, we would be legally compelled to make a choice, or face a fine for not doing so. I actually think that is a good thing, that works well for us, but I do very occasionally perform an act of deliberate civil disobedience, and pay the fine. And sometimes I just forget, and pay the fine.

I do suppose - and hope - that Romney's halo resulted from poor technique rather than a deliberate attempt to make him look good in the eyes of some voters. The opposite of that does go on. Images of Obama in Romney material, and vice versa, certainly don't show either of those two fine men at their best.

Why do all US presidential candidates feel they need to do the 'Pointless Point'?



You know that thing they all do when they look into the crowd of faces at rallies and point to some poor schmuck several rows back as though they know them personally (they don't) and then smile as though they are genuinely happy to see them (they are not).

It is no better in the UK, where all the politicians have now been trained to talk with a frown using clenched fist gestures for the important meaningless sentences, which also usually begin with the word 'Look', or talk softly with open flat handed gestures when uttering warm and friendly meaningless sentences.

Pox on 'em all I say  >:(

I agree wholeheartedly Dave, no matter where in the world they are spinning their toxins.

(And I am inclined to say a pox on all their supporters too.)

Interesting to see how many opinions Europeans have on American elections.

Antipodeans too, no doubt. The outcome has the potential to affect us too. We hope our American friends choose wisely.

America rules the world...or at least it tries to?
