phygz: In this thread-

Someone says something absolutely true that paints a less than positive picture of Obama.

Serious butthurt, deflection and messenger attacking ensues.

Did I miss anything?


Well now that you've ridden in on your shiny white horse, we can begin.

jso2897: I dismiss Matt Damon as a "one-Oscar actor".


"one-Oscar" is accurate but you are being over-generous with "actor". It must be the holidays.

/watch The Good Shepherd for an all-zombie cast...Damon played his role so well I had the nicest nap in years

Unless I missed something I don't think those guys in your pic were ever US citizens, or killed when they were children, and were atleast accused of doing some horrible things. Neither of which are applicable to Al-Waliki's son.

And at the very least is it terrible to actually have a conversation about how these decisions are being made ?

We killed a freaking teenager with a drone missile as well as a bunch of other children ano explanation, no charges even levied, At the very least they used to make shyte up about you to justify their actions, they don't even feel the need to do that any more.

YodaBlues: That's a valid point I guess. It seems like almost everyday, I read about some escaped convict who was blown up by a predator drone. Sure, the authorities could've attempted to apprehend him, you know, like normal. But who has the farking time for that? And we have all these missiles we aren't using! Blow that farker up from the sky.

kindms:

So then Please explain to the class how his son, a 17 year old American Teenager who was summarily executed in a separate drone attack several weeks later gave up his right to due process ? An attack mind you that also killed his 18 year old cousin and several other women and children. Exactly how did this kid forfeit his due process rights ?

Or are you going to argue that the sins of the father are applicable to his children ?




I'm arguing you have no protection from the law if you're hiding from it. You don't get "due process" if you're hiding from the process itself -- while making war on the United States I might add. Especially if you're in Yemen -- that doesn't even have to recognizance constitutional rights. Fark 'em. Stay in America if you want your day in court while waging jihad.

Surely you wouldn't run into any of the partisan political stonewalling nonsense that President Obama has been having to put up with for the past three years, because you're such a great world-class leader in your own right?

Actually, he might be able to do alright, simply because he's

all white. AMIRITE, GOP?

I was being facetious with the pic. The basic point is that there was no outrage at the slaughter of the Husseins at the time. Now, all of the sudden there's this outpour of "sympathy" for the Al-Walikis. If the only outrageous difference is that they were US citizens and under 21, look at your own f*cking police department.

Headso: tenpoundsofcheese: It just shows how stupid Obama is to say put out that line that I would rather be a one term President who did stuff, than a two term President who didn't. He has it completely backwards (hint: Carter, and Bush I - didn't do good stuff, bingo: one term for you)

W had two terms...


Bush the First did not.

letthepossumlive: The first problem with someone that wants to be president is the character traits that would make someone want to be president.


"The major problem - one of the major problems, for there are several - one of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them.
To summarize: it is a well known fact that those people who most want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it. To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job. To summarize the summary of the summary: people are a problem."

That's Douglas Adams' less concise version of your thought. Also, the only quote in my profile.

That's war for you. Iraq is littered with dead teenagers guilty of nothing but being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

I don't like war either, but stop acting like it's new.

bugontherug: Show me what has materially changed between 2008 and now. Please.

1) America no longer tortures.
2) America is substantially out of Iraq.
3) Comprehensive health care reform has passed, and we're moving to near universal coverage.
4) Homosexuals may now serve in the military on equal terms with their heterosexual brethren.
5) The economy is recovering.
6) It is now more difficult for credit card companies to screw their clientele.
7) Victims of sexual discrimination in the workplace may again sue their employers under reasonable terms.
8) Americans are better protected against foreign infringements on freedom of speech (look up the SPEECH Act).
9) Federal student loans are substantially more affordable now.


But I thought he couldn't get anything through the big bad republican congress? Or does that excuse only work when he hasn't done something?

eddyatwork: Obama is one term because RON PAUL is the next president. Mark my words. RON PAUL!


If he gets the nomination, he is the only contender capable of shifting the balance of power from the Democrats to the Republicans. In all seriousness, I think the GOP are more threatened by Paul than by Obama. If Paul were to get into office, he would stick by his principles, which would be devastating to both the Republican and Democratic party operating principles. He would be more of a populist than Obama ever thought possible. The only way he would get the nomination is through an upset that would destroy the Republican party; their leadership would rather tear their own party to shreds than lose control.

AverageAmericanGuy: I'm disappointed that Obama felt he had to exact a little revenge by taking a swipe at Damon's latest film.

Disappointed, but not surprised. Obama has shown himself to be petty and mean spirited time and again.


I know you're trolling, but I just wanted to say I thought his comment was clever and made me literally lol when I read it. Coming from the President, it was refreshing. Now as you were, trollmeister.

Dude... seriously... you need to be careful about believing in your own hype. Washington politics are way out of your league.


All he had to do was veto the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 and I would've been ok him for 4 more years, but letting that one pass had nothing to do with partisan politicking in Washington or Republican stone-walling, that was all about taking more power from the people and that bill's passage is all on him. He didn't take it to the people, it wasn't up for proper debate, he just let it pass. He's been Bush-lite in too many areas for my liking and letting such an anti-American, pro-Authoritarian piece of legislation like this pass, well frankly, I'm appalled.

Cyno01: The republicans could have the black vote if they wanted it. Just start reminding everybody that Lincoln, who freed the slaves, was a republican. They dont want it because i guess the racist hick demographic is much larger.


Even political parties change. Lincoln would be classified as a Socialist today. And, by the way, read the Emancipation Proclamation. It's an incredibly well written, but meaningless document. Lincoln knew that as President, he could not over-ride the Constitution; but, as Commander in Chief, he could free the slaves in the "States and counties" he had no control over.

The 13th amendment, passed after Lincoln's death, freed the slaves.

tricycleracer: Once he gets his second term, the Republican party will again become "compassionately conservative" in an attempt to not look like lying pieces of shiat. Otherwise, their most promising candidate will get stomped by Joe "Trans-Am" BidenHillary Clinton.


Pretty sure that's been preordained since the Hill'dog got her sos gig. Biden will be off to "more time with the family" land for 2012 and that's the last we'll see of him.

His economic policies may be a bit better than Bush and the Republicans, but on civil liberties he's clearly cut from the same cloth. I won't be voting for him again.

Mitt Romney announced he's going to go to war with Iran if he's elected. Be sure and not vote for the one candidate who will keep us out of another Republican war.

They're not your kids going out the front door and into 15 month combat tours.

Oh and just so you know. Iran is 4 times larger than Iraq and we sent 1.5 million members of our military into Iraq. For 15 month tours. For nine years.

Just throw your vote away so another Republican president can throw away trillions of dollars and thousands (hopefully that is all that will be killed in Iran) of lives.

whidbey: Babwa Wawa: Nobody who supported this year's Defense Authorization bill will get my vote. Ever.

Well that's the problem with such black and white thinking, I guess...


It's not just that, and you know it. But suspending habeas corpus is reason enough. Exactly how badly does they have to rape your civil liberties before you ask the administration to stop? How many financiers does this administration have to blow before we realize that they're not serving our interest?

DarnoKonrad: Babwa Wawa: It appears to me that liberals and civil libertarians are better served by a vocal minority party than a party so terrified of losing power that they will sell out nearly all of their basic principles.

Split the vote and elect Republicans is all it would do. We need to be vocal, we need to tell people this shiat is wrong, but we also need to be pragmatic. And voting for the lesser of two evils consistently does ensure less evil will exist.


If the GOP could have gotten away with indefinite detention during Bush II, they would have. But they couldn't because they had a minority that wasn't afraid to throw a shiatfit about it.

You can practice realpolitick all you want, but our real civil liberties, the stability of the financial system, and any hope of a sane immigration policy are being traded for votes.

The pisser is that Obama isn't buying anything by throwing all that away. Tea partiers, xenophobes, and fascists won't vote for him regardless of his stance on these issues.

*shrugs*

They are serving my interest. This administration came through for me when I was unemployed. Yes. Thanks to Democrats. Amongst other accomplishments you fail to mention.

The real problem is the right wing in this country and their insistence on paranoid 'security" issues. You really wanna see NDAA go into full effect?

Elect another Republican to the Presidency.

While meanwhile, Dick Cheney still survives....

foo monkey: Obama will be re-elected. Book it. Done.

He got handed one of the biggest turd-sandwiches in US history. He inherited two wars and a tanking economy. He closed off one war. He got Bin Laden. That second war will end in his second term. The economy may not be better, but it's not worse. It's certainly not worse for him.

Oh, and he's Black. He'll still get 95% of the non-white vote.


Ya know, I often ask myself what kind of idiot buys this crap, then there's always a Farker there to demonstrate exactly the kind of idiot. He didn't "inherit" anything. He came to us, the American people, and said "I understand the problems, I know the solutions, and I can fix this." That is not "inheriting" that is asking for the job with the offer than your the man for it. If I have a home remodeler farking up my place, and another guy shows up, looks at the job, and says "I can fix this", then he turns around and says "well, it's worse than I thought" I'm going to fire his ass. I'm damn sure not going to give him a pass. There's only two possibilities, either Obama, as he claims, didn't know what he was getting into, or he wasn't, and isn't, capable of dealing with it. Either way, he lied about either his ability, or his competence. Notice that the excuse then was "Well, it was worse than we thought." And now that he's running, it's "Well, it's not as bad as it looks."

He talks well, but I'll be damned if I've seen a single demonstration of any other sort of ability from him. And as far as the "obstructionist Republicans", do you really want to offer that as an excuse? What? He was so clueless as to what his job was going to be that he didn't realize he was going to be dealing with people who didn't agree with him?

And the whole thing about him being black being the problem? I've noticed that really is a good sign you're dealing with an idiot from the left incapable of anything remotely resembling rational thought....which simply goes back to making my point about the kind of idiot who bought the BS to start with.

/Not to say the right doesn't have plenty of idiots and issues of its own. When Ron Paul appears to be the sanest candidate running, that pretty much sums it up.
//So vote for someone who doesn't and never has had either an R or D next to their name, it was a joint effort to fark us up this bad, and neither one cares about solving the problem....the promise to solve it without doing so is what keeps them employed. See "war on poverty" and "war on drugs" for two examples.

Frank Zappa's not dead, Politifact.com says he's now a voucher program.
