    Read this article (I quoted the whole thing below) about Mitt Romney. Does it remind you of a certain shock jock?

    The news said he didn't even have a concession speech written. How cocky is that. The funny thing is he had it memorized. I watched some of it and he was looking around the room and not reading from a telepromptor.

    But like Howard he thinks his shit don't stink and he can't lose.

    Howard would be lucky to still have 5% of his Krock listeners as fans still.

    Yeah, there are definite similarities. The only difference is Romney said he likes firing people whereas Howard is incapable of firing people. How else do you explain Benjy, Gary, Shuli...

    Once they lose they are taints.

    That's why Gore never ran again.

    Gore won (was robbed) and he still never ran again.

    Romney was a loser in 2008 too.

    Nixon lost in 1960, he lost again in the 1962 Cali gubernatorial run.

    Hes in the top 0.006%, he can afford to run again. His magic underwear will compel him.

    i welcome the chance to vote against him a 3rd and potentially 4th time. I vote against GWB 3X :cheer:

    Only thing shocking about the shock jock is that he is no longer shocking.

    Romney is a great public speaker. I used to work av for public events back when he was the governor of mass. Few people amazed me how well they could perform without a script. Romney would lambaste his scripted opponents. It's not a matter of being cocky. It's a matter of understantpding the process. Look at his concession speech... It wasn't anything spectacular. It hit on the right points (thank your veep, thank your staff, congratulate your opponent, call for unity, thank your family) had the correct order and was timed well. You don't need to write a concession speech, you just need to understand how concession speeches work. Romneys the best candidate the GOP put up in a long time.

    they work cheap and are easily brought to heel :secret:

    and while he doesn't fire people, Howard sure as hell doesn't have a problem with letting people go

    Howard's been out of touch with reality for quite some time.

    I'd love for a caller to ask him what he thinks a gallon of gas, or a gallon of milk, or a loaf of bread costs.

    He was horrified at the thought of getting into the studio without Ronnie there to drive him in.

    Maybe there should be a new game on the show..."Let's see how close Howard can guess the price of common items."
