Freud is spinning in his grave.
Mitt Romney addressing Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in LA today.
I heard it live, then searched out the clip to share.
Feel free to watch the entire speech.
Or... go straight to 5:33.

Go to the 5.33 mark of the tape.
He's talking about the need for education.
He says "I will IMPAIR" then corrects to "I will EMPOWER."
I dunno, I happened to catch the video on the news earlier today and found it amusing.
That was hours before the leaked "47 percent" video.
Honestly, I'm cringing for the guy.
That's embarassing. It's funny how closly related the phonetics of those two words are, though.
Yeah. They are.
He also has a problem pronouncing Nuclear. As did Bush.
I agree with you and am only using this quote to a point not to insult you for it, but to expound on it, shows the micro gaff of words turned into a sword against another, especially since Romney has a platform to run on and obama does not have anything but a collection of failed promises and other things he has to battle.
If Romney would drop playing nice he could take down obama by running on his accomplishments, and zapping obama on his failure to act and his impeachable offenses that would take him down as he has no excuse for. I can think of two right off hand and one would rise to treason against our own national teams who were leaked right down to the dog that took Bin Laden down.

The line is empower parents, I do that occasionally where I mix words together...
It's sad that something like this is considered an issue... I wonder if Romney will impair parents in all 57/58 states...
It's not an issue.
I seem to be the only person who happened to have the news on and happened to catch it.
I thought it was funny at the time.
Now, in light of what we all heard just hours later about so many Americans feeling "entitled' to education (among other things), it seems even more like a Freudian slip.
Most disturbing is that he still has a chance of being elected. His eyeballs don't move. He is cold blooded, remorseless, shameless and incapable of taking responsibility for anything that he has said or done.
He is more concerned about having been caught telling people what he really is about. He doubled down and refused to discuss the content of his speech.
The good news is that he is giggling less.

by CBS poll, CNN poll, James Carville, Van Jones, John King, Anderson Cooper, Eugene Robinson, Howard Fineman, and even Chris Matthews. I didn't see any of the analysis on FOX, but I'll bet they were having a field day.What was wrong with Obama? He didn't seem to bring his A-game. I never expected...

Lots of people gave me flack for saying the debate was very poorly moderated. I say Candy was very biased, but let's just focus on one example. I want someone who loves Obama to explain why this wasn't an example of bias.You can watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q3ujxXuNgGsAn audience...

Romney or Obama? Is there really any decision to be made?

Recent news is reporting that Romney bullied a gay student in high school, leading the charge to chase him down and cut off his hair. What does this say about the presidential candidate? Does it change your opinion of him?

The classic F. Scott Fitzgerald novel The Great Gatsby contains the famous line, "The rich are different from you and me." Earnest Hemingway supposedly responded, "Yes, they have more money." I would add, along with opportunities the rank and file of the 99% don't even dare...
