Mitt Romney Florida
Mitt Romneybot has all the charm of a malfunctioning Xerox machine.
Did anyone honestly think that Mitt "Corporations are people too, my friend" Romney would turn out to be such a bad candidate? Over the past couple of days, he's sat down with voters in an effort to humanize himself by talking about the housing crisis. But instead of humanizing himself, he's unleashed junk like this:
"Well, the banks aren't bad people. They're just overwhelmed right now."

No, Mitt. They aren't bad people. Because they aren't people! For Pete's sake, Bank of America is not a person.

"The banks are scared to death, of course," he said. "They're feeling the same thing that you're feeling...

No, they aren't feeling the same thing we're feeling. They don't stay awake at night worried about how to pay the mortgage. They aren't worried about being forced to spend the night in their car because they've just lost their home. In fact, they aren't feeling a damn thing. Because they aren't human. They aren't even robots. They are companies. And the last thing we need is a president who can't tell the difference!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
