serpent_sky: And there goes Ron Paul making sense re: Cuba.

When he makes sense, he's great. I just hate when the batshiat crazy side comes out.


I will vote for Obama before I vote for Paul.
 
2012-01-23 09:49:50 PM  
Right, we need to manipulate them and hold an ace up our sleeves to make sure they come with us.

and loluwhat? terrorists on platforms? Screw Chuck Norris, we need Kevin Costner

serial_crusher: Cuban Missile Crisis 2: Electric Boogaloo


I should have said Islamic Boogaloo.
 
2012-01-23 09:49:54 PM  

quizzical: I give Brian Williams credit for finding a new question to ask. I don't think Cuba is high on our list of priorities, but it's a new topic.


It is for a Florida debate
 
2012-01-23 09:49:57 PM  
Wait? Why would a theocracy in Iran want to team up with Cuba? Why would Cuba want to team with Iran?
 
2012-01-23 09:50:03 PM  
oh noes the jihadists have taken over south america now, let's bomb them too!!!

Santorum is a scary scary man
 
2012-01-23 09:50:07 PM  
Yeah attack Iran. Here comes the shrinking the navy talking point.
 
2012-01-23 09:50:15 PM  

Outrageous Muff: Cuba can kill everyone American in an eyeblink.


Well...no, they can't.

But China can.
 
2012-01-23 09:50:15 PM  
Hey, Frothy, the whole OMG Nicaraguans r commies HALP thing was pretty much discredited back when I was a college sophomore. in 1984.
 
2012-01-23 09:50:30 PM  
Romney: 15 ships instead of 9 ships a year is the difference between weakness and victory.
 
2012-01-23 09:50:32 PM  

AKTurkey: LOLOLOLOLOL - Al Queda in CUBA!!!!!!111!!!!


We have to fight them over there so we don't have to fight them here.
 
2012-01-23 09:50:33 PM  
And Rick Santorum just said that the jihadists like such as the Iraqis and the Iranians are going to be like the USSR, camping over in Cuba and Venezuela.

The Red Menace is now the Red Jihadi Menace. You heard Rick.
 
2012-01-23 09:50:35 PM  
Fifteen ships a year? Does this man know how much these things cost?
 
2012-01-23 09:50:51 PM  
You get an aircraft carrier, and you get an aircraft carrier, and you get an aircraft carrier!
 
2012-01-23 09:51:00 PM  

Ricardo Klement: serpent_sky: And there goes Ron Paul making sense re: Cuba.

When he makes sense, he's great. I just hate when the batshiat crazy side comes out.

I will vote for Obama before I vote for Paul.


Well yeah, but Paul's better than Gingrich
 
2012-01-23 09:51:07 PM  
or should I say... AL CUBA!
 
2012-01-23 09:51:11 PM  
We need to spend more on the military,,,
the GOP is a broken record
 
2012-01-23 09:51:16 PM  
Newt: Americans don't want a war, but fark you we're doing it anyway.
 
2012-01-23 09:51:18 PM  

AmorousRedDragon: Romney: 15 ships instead of 9 ships a year is the difference between weakness and victory.


Well his comment that the US has dominion over all international waters makes it a little clearer why he thinks that.
 
2012-01-23 09:51:19 PM  
We have the ability to obliterate all life on earth several times over. Who is going to start the fight with us directly? Let alone by sea?
 
2012-01-23 09:51:20 PM  

BSABSVR: Corvus: So I read today that Romney is actually a bishop in the Mormon church.

Why does no one point this out?

IIRC, adult males who are Mormon are all considered bishops.


No wonder he is having trouble attacking Newt, he can only go after him diagonally.
 
2012-01-23 09:51:27 PM  
Oh, I think we had plenty of desire to go to war when Japan bombed us.
 
2012-01-23 09:51:28 PM  

hawcian: Fifteen ships a year? Does this man know how much these things cost?


Defense money doesn't count as spending.
 
2012-01-23 09:51:34 PM  
americans don't want to go to war ... oh he probably means canada
 
2012-01-23 09:51:38 PM  
Oh yeah, where do we get the money for all these new ships? No, how can you complain that our Navy is too small? Our Navy is head and shoulders above any other nation in the world.

God, all this derp.
 
2012-01-23 09:51:39 PM  
Umm, Newt, we just sent warships into the gulf through the strait. Shuddup.
 
2012-01-23 09:51:52 PM  
I want to read the history books newt reads.
 
2012-01-23 09:51:58 PM  
I swear to God, at first I heard "when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor". I really wish that was the actual quote, but alas.
 
2012-01-23 09:52:02 PM  
Where are the Republicans on Fark to defend their best and brightest? Please, by all means, explain to us how the best you have to offer don't sound like childish morons.
 
2012-01-23 09:52:04 PM  

hawcian: Fifteen ships a year? Does this man know how much these things cost?


It used to be that for a long time. But it hasn't been that for more than a decade. Bush cut naval building down to 9 ships. This is stupid. Why can't we have intelligent conservatism!? Why???
 
2012-01-23 09:52:07 PM  
Of course, beat the Taliban!! Why hasn't anyone ever thought of this during the last 10 farking years?
 
2012-01-23 09:52:09 PM  
By beating them? like with a bat? wut
 
2012-01-23 09:52:15 PM  
And the chickenhawks begin puffing up.
 
2012-01-23 09:52:19 PM  

apoptotic: AmorousRedDragon: Romney: 15 ships instead of 9 ships a year is the difference between weakness and victory.

Well his comment that the US has dominion over all international waters makes it a little clearer why he thinks that.


Yes because the U.S. Navy is so underequipped for this task as it stands today.
 
2012-01-23 09:52:23 PM  
Great. Now we get to hear how they are chomping at the bit to go to war with Iran.


And Romney thinks he can beat the Taliban.

This is mania. Oh, and "Afghan dissent -- uh, people" -- what?
 
2012-01-23 09:52:28 PM  

Daquin: Wait? Why would a theocracy in Iran want to team up with Cuba? Why would Cuba want to team with Iran?


Axis of evil. Plus North Korea Mexico appeaser.
 
2012-01-23 09:52:33 PM  
Iran thinks Obama is weak?

I wonder what Bin Laden thinks?
 
2012-01-23 09:52:46 PM  

Communist_Manifesto: I want to read the history books newt reads.


He writes his own. I'm sure he'd be happy to sell you one for $49.95.
 
2012-01-23 09:52:49 PM  

bobbette: I kind of like Rick Santorum's idea of letting people write off losses on their homes. That's the only thing so far tonight that hasn't sounded like complete bullsh*t... (someone feel free to link me to reasons why that might be bullsh*t).


This seems like it would be a great way to launder money and avoid taxes..and possibly profit. Why would you pay taxes when you could buy an expensive home, sell it the next day to your wife/brother/LLC etc, for $1 and repeat the process until you've entirely offset your tax debt? It seems like a way for rich people to get free houses, and avoid taxes even more thoroughly.

Might be wrong. Depends how the law is written
 
2012-01-23 09:52:59 PM  
How do you beat the Taliban in Afghanistan.

By beating them!!!

This's what Republicans actually believe!
 
2012-01-23 09:53:02 PM  
Fighting season? WTF Mittens?
 
2012-01-23 09:53:10 PM  
Romney: We already have a military budget higher than the rest of the world combined, we need to increase it even more so they know NOW that we mean business
 
2012-01-23 09:53:26 PM  

gimmegimme: Where are the Republicans on Fark to defend their best and brightest? Please, by all means, explain to us how the best you have to offer don't sound like childish morons.


They usually hide out from these threads.
 
2012-01-23 09:53:33 PM  

Corvus: So I read today that Romney is actually bops the bishop in the a Mormon church.

Why does no one point this out?


Hey, I already corrected the sentence for you, what more do you want?
 
2012-01-23 09:53:34 PM  

dahmers love zombie: Oh, I think we had plenty of desire to go to war when Japan bombed us.


That's just what the godless, commie, liberal history books and pointy-headed intellectuals want to make you think.
 
2012-01-23 09:53:41 PM  
F*ck I hate the pandering to old Cuban exiles nostalgic for their days of being aristocratic land barons. Hope they all die off before Castro does. Also, won't the Mormon church posthumously baptize Castro to assure he gets into heaven? You know, a la Hitler.
 
2012-01-23 09:53:42 PM  
Don't these fool do prep work before these friggin debates. They all sound like idiots

Newt look particularly pasty and smelly.
 
2012-01-23 09:53:43 PM  

ghare: Ricardo Klement: serpent_sky: And there goes Ron Paul making sense re: Cuba.

When he makes sense, he's great. I just hate when the batshiat crazy side comes out.

I will vote for Obama before I vote for Paul.

Well yeah, but Paul's better than Gingrich


I cannot concur.
 
2012-01-23 09:53:43 PM  
Ron Paul again speaks sense. He's digging deeper with every word.
 
2012-01-23 09:53:48 PM  

Daquin: Wait? Why would a theocracy in Iran want to team up with Cuba? Why would Cuba want to team with Iran?


Do you actually want me to explain?

In Rick Santorum's view, they all hate America, so they will obviously work together to destroy Western Civilization (aka America and Israel), and jihadists are commies anyways. Because of hating America.

By the way, he also thinks gays are destroying western civilization, so I wonder if that means the gays are also Iranian-Cuban communist jihadists. They WERE suspiciously fond of wearing keffiyehs when that was a hipster thing about five years ago!
