Mitt Romney to America: That's A Nice Country You Got There. Be A Shame If Something Happened To It

Throughout the campaign, Mitt's made many arguments on why he should be president, ranging from his business experience being invaluable in creating jobs, to his supposedly awesome record as someone who worked with people across the isle. Feeling that such qualifications weren't good enough, Romney's decided to go with one final gambit: elect him or his party will blow up the fucking country:

You know that if the President is re-elected, he will still be unable to work with the people in Congress," Romney said. "He has ignored them, attacked them, blamed them. The debt ceiling will come up again, and shutdown and default will be threatened, chilling the economy."
So Mittens is essentially saying that because congress is unfortunately filled to the brim with people who would be more appropriately suited to residing in various street corners and park benches, they will once again attempt to destroy the global economy just cause they don't like Obama. Romney sees this as a legitimate, defensible argument in favor of voting him in, instead of being an argument for why his Tealiban suicide bombers should be voted out of congress, never to come anywhere near any positions of power ever again. 
The fact that Romney saw nothing wrong with him openly stating such a thing once again proves the uselessness of our media.
Speaking of which, I'd like to point out that quite a few conservatives who have a reputation of distinguishing themselves from their fellow conservatives (specifically of the Tea folk persuasion) on account of them not having a straight up loathing for them new fangled readin' books, have made the same argument. This includes Ramesh Panooru, David Frum, and the great David Brooks. And these guys are supposed to be the "moderates" in this absolute joke of a political party.
