    Re: Newspaper: Mitch "must be stopped"

    Thread title had me thinking this would be about a certain Detroit columnist (who indeed must be stopped). Who's Mitch? You mean Mitt?

    I did mean Mitt and to avoid any further confusion and typos I just changed the name of the thread to Romney instead of Mitch (or Mitt).

    I cannot believe that paper let that go through. God forbid the man gets assassinated, imagine the fury and the investigating that paper will haver thrust upon it.

    Love how Mitt's people say the differences are drivers licenses and a line in the Pledge; the AP makes sure the paper's disagreement is on something a little more substantial.

    and Mark, it says Mitt must be "stopped" not "shot".

    I'd like to see a list of candidates the Monitor didn't consider phony.

    Had they put shot, at least it'd be more clear. They really opened themselves up to a lot of trouble with that one.

    I don't know. Psychos are psychos. And if someone wanted to shoot Mitt Romney, they'd find reasoning in a bowl of corn flakes.
  9. Oh, lord.
    We start tailoring words based on their interpretations by psychopaths, and we're sort of out of business.
  10. "Must be stopped" is acceptable terminology? Sounds like something out of a sci-fi film.

    Sorry, F_B, it's not just based on psychos.
    It's irresponsible, period.
    Fine, you don't like the man's positions, don't think he's a good candidate? Say that, it's what the editorial board is for.
    Must be stopped? Stupid and bordering on a threat.
  12. "Must be stopped" is irresponsible?
    We're all being very polite here.
