JERUSALEM (AP) -- Mitt Romney says that if he worried about what reporters thought of him, he wouldn't get much sleep.

He says he's sleeping just fine.

I bet Romney can beat Obama in arm wrestling in at least two out of three times.

I thought Newsweek went out of business.

And yet, the girly-man in the White House is not?

And, why is anybody paying attention to a magazine that hasn’t mattered in a long time? It’s in its death-bed.

Let’s get some material from people that count.

I would agree...Newsweak isn’t much to read. I’m surprised that folks tend quote them or use them for real reporting. They lost their edge back in the early 1990s, and haven’t been worth reading since the end of the Clinton era.

Trashing the only American running for president is one of the reasons why the Newsweak print edition is about to become history. Of course, don’t worry about that. Newsweak will still be around hospital and dentist waiting rooms for the next 10 years.

Sidney Harman bought it from the Washington Post for $1.00 and he overpaid.

They really haven't been worth reading since Henry Hazlett quit writing his biweekly column in the mid-1970's ... and they were marginal at best for years before that.

Now Romney’s a wimp? What happened Newsweak? Did you finally give up on the “Romney’s a bully” meme?

Guess Newsweak figured they couldn't call Romney the 'gay' president - Time already did that to 0bama.

The sooner Newsweak disappears, preferably to the sound of flushing toilets, the happier I will be.

Are Democrats ever 'wimps'?

What was the "objective" critique of Obama that graced the Newsweek cover in 2008? What's that? There wasn't any? No "Queen of Rage" (Bachmann)? No "Wimp Factor"? Go figure.

They have both memes going. Here's Politico today...

Gibbs: Romney campaigning like 'prep school bully'

Basically throwing anything against the wall to see what sticks. It's all part of the new effort to win the election on likability (as the Bain ads never paid off, and he can't run on record).

That's why we're seeing all these stories about how even though he's an incompetent idiot, well, we still like him. Meanwhile Romney is a wimp or a bully or a stiff... and just not a person you would like.

Remember that Romney as bully was with a group helping him, he would never have taken on that effeminate boy alone.

sorry about repeat post but probably not my fault - it appeared a couple minutes after I closed the posting box. Clear is a lousy Internet provider - they choke down access until it is almost impossible to post to FR without this stuff happpening. I’m supposed to have ‘high speed’ access. What a joke - it’s worse sometimes like in these instances, than dialup was.

This is the newsweak that is ceasing to exist in print form and is going 100% online and digital in a few weeks. Next will be bankruptcy... first their souls... then their wealth and then their power. The way of the darkside.

Left-wing propaganda and sheer desperation because the left sees Obama being booted out of the White House by a large majority, too large to offset with fraudulent votes and vote-counting shenanigans in Democrat-held cites, e.g. Chicago. NewsWeek and the rest of the leftmedia are still trying to make the race all about Romney so they can avoid Obama having to defend his terrible record and slide by on his alleged 'charm' that is really just grinning insolence based on a narcissistic personality. Voters will not be so easily conned, this time. The economic devastation wrought by Obama's radical economic policies along with a list of offensive acts and statements have made the Obama presidency, thankfully, 'a one-term proposition'. Romney just has to get out of the way (not make any huge gaffes) and allow voters to hand him the presidency on November 6th.

Since I seldom see Newsweak other than in the supermarket aisle, how many Obama covers have there been since 2007 and have ANY of them had ANY tinge of criticism? My GUESS is none since Newsweak and Time are both mere liberal NewSpeak shades of their once robust objective selves (by comparison).

When Henry Luce created Time Magazine as a genre of weekly news magazine, it was to be the more considered adjunct to the newspaper's daily journalism, the news that had time to be considered a report with a degree of objectivity. Now Henry Luce is probably called "Spinning Henry" by his fellow corpses as his progeny, along with Newsweak and the non-tree version of USNews&WorldReport, regurgitate the social message pablum of the liberal bi-costal intelligensia.

Now, as Oliver Cromwell is reputed to have addressed the English 'Rump' Parliament, "You have sat too long for any good you have been doing lately ... Depart, I say; and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!"

The mainstream media used to call George Bush Senior a wimp even though he flown fighter planes in WWII and been shot down. They did not think the draft dodger and pro-VietCong war protester Bill Clinton was a wimp. Republicans (see what they said about Eisenhower), in the eyes Democrats and the non-FOX media, are always stupid and always wimps. They’re real objective.

Who couldn’t see this one coming 10,000 miles away. If he would just ‘Gingrich’ Obama he’d lose his soft touch image.
