I don't think Romney would have said I have 5 men. If anything he should have said I have 5 sons. I feel it's pretty iffy that it was a jab to Obama.

Women in our part of PA are referred to as girls. It is a colloquialism. Just the way we say it. I know you are an Obama supporter, but WOW that is a stretch. I did not and don't think anyone else took that statement as Romney calling Obama a boy.

I rank this thinking right up there with all the people who were making Big Bird a big issue.

I think this is one big thing that is wrong with supporters on both sides. They try to twist what was said be what they want it to be; i.e., Romney never said he "likes to fire people". He said he likes to be able to "fire people who provide a service for him"; i.e., contractor, hairdresser, healthcare provider (someone whose services you are displeased with).

I'm undecided. I want each side to be upfront and honest with me to win my vote.

Did we already cover this and I missed it? Did Mitt call the president "bro" at one point? I can not be the only person who heard it. I even asked my husband to rewind so we could be sure. We heard it.

Mitt Romney Calls Obama Bro in national debate - YouTube

That is just so awkward. I expected awkward complicated hand shake attempts to follow.

I think to black people, the "boy" thing is much more than a colloquialism.

That was an OBVIOUS "zinger" by Romney, very rehearsed and practiced. That word was carefully crafted to zing Obama as a boy, in the colonial-slavery sense, and I absolutely believe it was intentional, even if I wasn't an Obama supporter.

You could always get married civily now, and just get offically catholically-married later, after the annulments are granted.

I think the biggest mistake Obama made was not bringing up the 47%. It was like he was tired and overworked and was just going through the motions so he could go home to bed.
It was his 20th wedding anniversary. They was lowdown to even schedule the debate on that day.....smh
Um....anybody else has to work on their anniversary, birthday, etc unless they have vacation leave and want to use it, are permitted to use it or the special day falls on their day off, so I don't see the big deal with this.

Sent from my PC36100 using CurlTalk App
I was going to say the same thing. Obama is a competitor. I doubt he was pouting and sulking about his anniversary. They can find time elsewhere to celebrate, as any working person has to do.

Whether he meant it as RCW suggests or not, bringing up how the words are used where you're from is rather irrelevant. There is such a thing as context, and referring to a black man as "boy" has a specific context. Much as referring to women as "girls" in certain situations is particularly inappropriate, and that's without getting into how something being a colloquialism doesn't mean it can't be racist, sexist, etc..
I'm not sure I agree with RCW, but I felt the need to point that out seeing a black man being called "boy" hand-waved as somehow being similar to when it's done in other situations.

We've talked about doing this. Neither of us want to wait 2 years. We're moving in together in Dec and would like to get married in April.

As for Romney, this is pretty much an accurate depiction of his debate performance:

Quote:
Imagine someone offers you a job, and they tell you, “It’s going to be great! You’re going to love it.”

You ask, “Okay, so what will I be doing?”

“A lot of great things!”

“Well, what specifically?”

They answer, “One, something you LIKE. Two, something that will make you look good. Three…”

You’re sort of frustrated, so you cut them off and ask, “Can you tell me anything about what I’d actually be doing on a day to day basis?”

They just smile and say, “All the stuff you like, and none of the stuff you don’t like!”

Frustrated, you move on. “Whatever. Can you at least tell me what the job pays?”

They smile again and say, “The pay is going to be great! You’re going to love it!”

You blink at them, incredulous, and ask, “But what amount will actually be on my paycheck?”

“You’re going to be very pleased. Don’t worry.”

Getting more upset, you ask, “What about benefits?”

“You’ll have some.”

“What specifically?”

They smile confidently and punch you playfully on the arm. “Oh, you. You ask some great questions.”

“I know. So what is the answer?”

“It’s going to be great. I PROMISE.”

“What about time off?” you press.

They stand there smiling at you like a cardboard cut out.

“Do I get sick time? Vacation? What hours will I be working? Is it a salaried job? Hourly? Who will be my boss?” Blank smile. “Can you even tell me where I will be working?”

They grin and gush, yet again, “Trust me, you’re really going to like it. It’s going to do lots of great things for you.”

Would you take this job?

If you answered no, then you understand why I don’t think Romney won the debate tonight and why I don’t want him to be my president.
Or:

Obama - Romney debate-imageuploadedbycurltalk1349362224.399541.jpg

There's this perception that he did well because he told a whole slew of lies like he believed them. He can afford to be aggressive in a way Obama can't.
I wish Obama would have at least brought up how he tried to take credit for things in Massachusetts that weren't his doing.

I did not think that at all. This election will be won where it is always won...in the few battleground swing states...and Obama is leading in all of them, often in double digits. One bad debate performance isn't going to erase all that. Don't fall into the trap of thinking this is lost...that's what the Reps want you to think.
