    I hate Mitt, but fail to see what`s wrong with this. They made signs to pass out to folks, so folks could hold up signs "if they wanted to" and it helps to make them look good. I`m sure the folks holding signs didn`t mind doing it and would have brought their own had they thought of it.

    Hahaha! How silly. You can clearly see that those were drawn/painted in bulk with exactly the same color and width brush, on the same size paper and in the same style.

    I would love to see a speech by one of these guys with a couple of negative signs behind... "this guy sucks!" "we`re idiots!"

    How is this fake? The signs are real, the people holding them obviously support Romney (i.e. not forced to hold them and they aren`t photo shopped over other signs)
    Because one person makes them and hands them out, doesn`t make them fake.

    There`s a difference between a placard handed out by campaign staff and manufactured hand painted signs of hearts dictating your personal love of said candidate. If you`re incapable of seeing that then you`re just dumber than a rock.

    madest how do you know they are campaign staff? What drew you to that conclusion?
    Could be teachers who brought in students. Could just be enthusiastic supporters handing out signs they made. How do you know 100% who they are?

    I was gonna say this D:

    I`m guessing the people holding the signs actually do support him though. So it`s not all bad though a bit dishonest.

    I`m gonna make a kind of trivial comparison here but... for the musical group I like, people like to do support projects and make support banners for individual members at concerts. They`ll even hand out banners to people who want them. The purpose of this is to show your support to the singer.

    Now imagine if the singer was the one handing out those posters, so that there`d be his name in pictures of the concerts (keep in mind that the group has many people, so not everyone is going to the concert to see this member). Doesn`t that seem stupid? Even if the people holding the signs love the singer.

    If people bring their own posters to a political rally, they`re most likely doing it to show support to the candidate. They most likely aren`t doing it so that the cameras will see how much they support the candidate. But if the candidate hands out the posters, it`s obviously for the cameras, and it seems really stupid to me.

    The title to this could realistically be changed to:
    Mitt Romney Supporters Hand Out Pre-made Rally Signs

    Watch the video with this title in mind and it`s not as suspicious as the OP might want you to think.

    Title by madest:
    Mitt Romney Has Aliens posing as campaigners Hand Out Fake Rally Signs (ALIEN CONSPIRACY to take over the world through Mitt)

    So basically he`s being accused of doing what Obama has been doing for years? I guess maybe the point of this video is to show he`s a copycat, not a fraud.

    The republicans refuse to believe that people like Obama to an extent where they design their own pro Obama posters to bring to rally`s, that they`ve filmed this video of their moron leader as proof. Ooooops I mean`t "mormon".

    Republican = Democrat. They are all politicians. ------------
    Politicians of different flavors. Republicans would have to be chocolate since Santorums in the frothy mix. All of them want to control your genitals and dictate what sex is allowable. Their minds are in womens vaginas and gay mens butt holes. They can`t move past the 60`s. They are idea-less. They`re determined to enrich their rich donor friends on the backs of the working class and they`re all anxious to start a war with Iran.
    Indeed the democrats are more vanilla. They chug along on the defensive but make the country better along the way. It`s why Obama will have another 4 years.

    Agreed Gerry, Our representative government doesn`t represent us. They represent themselves and answer to their donors. We`re not living in an era in need of representative government anymore we could represent ourselves. We could keep a president just to make the snap day to day decisions and perhaps some steering but all our congressional representatives would be sent home. Their salaries and pensions would die with them (no need to be mean). We can have some app for voting on budgets and laws. Have say one batch of votes per week. Limit the number of votes because we all have lives and can`t be bothered constantly. If the internet has the power to stop industry pocketed politicians in an instant they have the power to run the country. Time to think about something new that would more accurately reflects our views.

    Ohoho no Gerry no. I`ve waited a long time (with yet more time still left to go) to see teavangelical Republicans squirm in discomfort at voting for a candidate that is significantly doctrinally dissimilar to themselves. Since after all the Rep. race is essentially a race for Pastor in Chief, and the base would rather burst into flame than elect a "Heretic" like Romney.

    as zombunny points out: they are obviously made by the same person (same design, writing style/font choices, colors, etc.)

    However, if someone weren`t there to support Romney, they probably wouldn`t hold up the sign and cheer into the camera with such fervor. Meaning that the people holding the signs are already supporters of Romney. The signs simply highlight this. He might not have the amount of support that we (general public) think, but the signs aren`t forced into anybody`s hands, I`m sure. That being said, I`m sure every single candidate has used pre-made signs to adorn the crowd`s inhabitants since the invention of the concept of candidates.

    Keep telling yourself that CJ. It`s what Frank Luntz wants you to think. There are 250k registered republicans in the state of Maine. Only 5,500 came out to vote, that`s about 2%. Your party is bereft of ideas and bashing Obama is not a presidential plan. They are only trying to appeal to white, Christian, males. We see that it`s worked on you. Get out there and vote. There will be hundreds of non-white, non christian, women to X that mistake out.

    That`s because Bush was retarded. You seem to be fine with any president if he`s from your party. Nevermind the lie about the reasons for war. Never mind the trillions wasted for nonsense or the loss of American life, or the loss of Iraqi life, or the loss of respect worldwide. Forget the torture, forget the unconstitutional lifetime detention of "enemy combatants", forget spying on Americans, forget rendition. You look past stupidity if they`re from your political persuasion. It gives you NO credibility. None. You are as bereft of credibility as your party is of talent or ideas.

    All the above and worse is still going on as we speak. Napalitano, under Obama`s direction, has turned the TSA and the DHS into their own personal goon squad.

    And seriously, what gives you no credibility is the fact that you are blind to all that, plus your Bush Derangement Syndrome and UFO conspiracy theories.
