I may be wrong but I did not find any by spell check @

MFWinAlford   •   Thu Sep 06 2012 at 09:27pm PDT

There was one. Mostly, he called him “my opponent”…

chelseaboys   •   Fri Sep 07 2012 at 06:07am PDT

Yeah, guess he was more in awe of the process last time and actually called his opponent by name. Oh well, you win some and you lose some.

chelseaboys   •   Wed Sep 05 2012 at 07:30am PDT

What about more subtle references like “my opponent” “The Republican candidate” “the other guy” “that rich bastard” “the tax cheat” “the ‘bain’ of my existence” “the white racist”. Sorry, I’m just reading his mind…. But, I am actually asking a serious question as it relates to my first couple of suggestions.

east1999   •   Wed Sep 05 2012 at 08:39am PDT

The thing with including that kind of references is that we cannot really predict how they turn out, and moreover, when consulting Obama’s 2008 speech, the references you pointed out weren’t used at all (I was just using the search, not doing a close reading). Maybe subtlety doesn’t make for good tv.

So… only the word “MITT ROMNEY” counts? That will make it a lot easier!

chelseaboys   •   Wed Sep 05 2012 at 08:55am PDT

No. Read below. “Romney” counts too.

Well, his real name is Willard Mitt Romney, as MFWin is want to advise… But, I’ve never heard POTUS call him Willard before….

MFWinAlford   •   Wed Sep 05 2012 at 10:02am PDT

Well, I may want to advise, but I’ve only met the man once, so I’ll have to rely on my friend Deval to give him good advice, which I’ve noticed he does. Perhaps you meant to say that I’m wont to advise.

In any case, yes, I agree, I think “Willard” is only used by leftwingnuts as a derisive handle. That, and of course “Mittens” though I doubt POTUS will use anything even remotely disrespectful.

chelseaboys   •   Wed Sep 05 2012 at 08:46am PDT

OK, I’ll rely on your count. I won’t be able to stomach watching….

SneakyPete   •   Thu Sep 06 2012 at 10:12am PDT

That makes two of us.
