Paul: Get government out of our lives. But outlaw abortion and no gay marriage.
 
2012-01-23 10:37:28 PM  

EsteeFlwrPot: Sorry guys but I think Paul makes a lot of sense. Definitely more sense than the other 3


That's an awfully low bar.

There's crazy old Ron Paul again, moaning about how conservative means small government and personal liberty. Be quiet, old man, there's a system to support here!

EsteeFlwrPot: Sorry guys but I think Paul makes a lot of sense. Definitely more sense than the other 3


A ficus makes more sense than the other three, it's not really a very high bar.
 
2012-01-23 10:37:46 PM  
Frothy does bring up the fact that keeps amazing me. The GOP front runners are the guy who invented "Obamacare" and the guy who first implemented "Obamacare" and yet because they're not black or the Democratic party, the voters just don't care.
 
2012-01-23 10:37:52 PM  

quizzical: Paul: Get government out of our lives. But outlaw abortion and no gay marriage.


Only if your state wants it that way. Get fed government out, keep state government in.

tenpoundsofcheese: Corvus: tenpoundsofcheese: video man: WhyteRaven74: Gas prices have double under Obama? bwahahahah oh wait, he's serious....

Yeah, man. I am totally paying $8 a gallon! They should fine political figures every time they lie.

gas was 1.60/gallon on 1/10/09

they should fine farkers every time they have no clue on the facts.

[www.thedigeratilife.com image 640x324]

Nice job of comparing gas prices at it lowest. Not the average price under Bush.


You lying turd.

Nope. The statement was that gas prices did not double since 0bama.
The chart proves that it did.
Thank you for proving my point.

It had nothing to do with Bush, but thanks for playing the ....but...but...but...Bush.

Gas prices doubled under 0bama. Deal with it.


best part......forever

WhyteRaven74: gimmegimme: The free market determines oil prices.

Sort of, kind of. A huge chunk of the oil in the world isn't covered by futures contracts. However the price paid for it depends in part on the price of futures contracts. Even though producers and customers have already agreed to buy whatever quantity of oil they've agreed to.


I know. But the point is that it's retarded to blame Obama in the way tenpounds did.

My 18 month old nephew makes more sense than those three. Let's raise our standards some, hmm?

AGAIN, with the mortgage line, Mitt?
 
2012-01-23 10:38:20 PM  

what_now: Oh Jesus, Frothy. Global warming doesn't exist?


It's not in the Bible.

There are some pretty amusing comments on the Economist's liveblog, by the way:

There's only one way to find out if there are jihadists on Mars.
 
2012-01-23 10:38:22 PM  
Mittens is so proud of himself for putting Kennedy into debt to beat him. It's kinda nauseating.
 
2012-01-23 10:38:29 PM  

tenpoundsofcheese: It had nothing to do with Bush, but thanks for playing the ....but...but...but...Bush.


SO the Gas prices in 2012 cause the financial collapse of 2008? Does that actually make farking sense to you?

The reason why gas prices went up is because the economy got better.

You are COMPARING GAS PRICES AT THE LOWEST POINT UNDER BUSH TO THE HIGHEST POINT UNDER OBAMA!!!

Gas prices were higher under Bush.

You are farking lying like I have shown.

Ricardo Klement: relcec:
and there are probably hundreds of littoral subs all over the world that can stay underwater for weeks all over the world, some of which are just as deadly to maritime trade as anything we have. not saying booga booga, just sayin'.

12 of them are Kilos. They're hardly littoral subs. Neither is the Song, of which they have 20.


yeah, I should have just said non nukes, or something, not littoral, obviously.

You are entirely correct.

Newt has an actual space program.

Romney is: me too, maybe I'll stop ridiculing it while I'm in Florida.

Obama: space program = outreach to religion.

Communist_Manifesto: seventypercent: tenpoundsofcheese: WhyteRaven74: tenpoundsofcheese: gas was 1.60/gallon on 1/10/09

Not around here it wasn't.

well, then too bad that Newt or Mitt didn't specifically address your area. But that was the average in the country. YMMV.

Just out of curiosity, do you know what gas prices were like in July of 2008?

They definitely weren't 5$ a gallon because that would ruin his argument. His cherry picked date is the real benchmark date, don't you see that?


Nope. Gas prices doubled under Obama. The prices in July of 2008 (cherry picked date) or Dec 1934 (another cherry picked date) are completely irrelevant.


The only two dates are January 2009 and January 2012. Deal with it.
 
2012-01-23 10:39:56 PM  
Newt's weight and giant head is starting to pull him down, he is sloughing.

No, no, you see, Ron Paul is against the federal government interfering in gay relationships and having a say over what a woman does with her uterus. That intrusion into gays' and women's lives and bodies should happen at the state level, because Constitution.

Outreach to religion? What the f*ck are you talking about?

Newts space program is pretty stupid, what is the point of a Lunar colony? We've already been and did experiments there. Time for us to go further, as Obama wants.

Mitt " That poor bastard Ted Kennedy had to take out a 2nd mortgage to beat me, lol at the 99%"
 
2012-01-23 10:40:46 PM  
Mitt's doing his hero bit again.... "I'm going to raise taxes on you idiots, and you're going to vote for me anyway".
 
2012-01-23 10:40:56 PM  
See, Mittens can remember 7 things. That's why he's still in the race and Perry isn't.

It's really like raving at clouds on a streetcorner, isn't it? Don't you feel the least bit of guilt parroting such ridiculous talking points?

Obama lent us his time machine and instead of using it for good, we've gone 30 seconds into the future of derp.

I, and YOU, both demonstrated the point that gas prices have doubled under 0bama. Or does your chart not say that?

quid pro quo.
stop all arms sales to Taiwan and broker a reunification deal if they offer to let the yuan float.
then get out of all asia except for diego garcia.

Nice of you to be willing to sell out a group of people. Woodrow Wilson is rolling over in his grave.


we're supposed to start World War 3 to NOT save 23 million chinese from becoming part of china?
we cannot stop it.
it is not our f*cking business.
we might as well get some jobs out of not stopping the inevtiable and not starting WW3.
and get the f*ck out of the rest of asia while we are at it.
that is selling anyone out.
that is butting the F*CK OUT.

Obama took office January 20th, 2009. What, exactly, did he do in that third of a month to effect gas prices?

Or are you just retarded?

And this is the point where I can no longer talk to you.

"what you've just said ... is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."

Newt just said that his space program is that private individuals are going to put up "all kinds of fantastic money" for prizes to do things. So why doesn't that happen now, and who can develop anything new to claim a prize without some bucks?
 
2012-01-23 10:42:52 PM  
Ok so the conclusion of this debate is Obama will serve a second term.
