netweavr: kimwim: netweavr: And on a more serious note, I hope his daughter gets well soon. No one likes having a sick child.

She's not going to get well soon. Or ever. She has Trisome 18. It's a genetic disorder, extra chromosome. They don't get better.

That really sucks. I hope she gets to enjoy the time she has then.


Same here. It's quite tragic, which is what makes Santorum's combination of extreme religiosity and complete lack of compassion all the more baffling.

Yeah, I don't care how much of a douchebag her father is, I wouldn't wish that on anyone.* That is a tragedy. :(

Skrillex already lives in perpetual hell. His music just gives us a glimpse at it.

DarnoKonrad: I really didn't think Romney could do it.


I am looking forward to Romney beating Obama in the election.

Romney has always been the Republicans best chance, and he was the most moderate of all the Republican candidates. I think he will make a pretty good president.

Weaver95: freeperville is going nuts.



How can you tell? They're always going nuts.

This is one of their typical headlines (just freshly copied and pasta):

The "Trayvon was murdered" scam will make Obama unelectable as the "Gangsta" In Chief

netweavr: coeyagi: netweavr: coeyagi: netweavr: And on a more serious note, I hope his daughter gets well soon. No one likes having a sick child.

In a related note, mark your calendar - in about 2 weeks Rick will be telling Fox News that the reason he got out was that it was too much strain on his family, particularly the special needs child he spawned much like the Palins who were too god damn old to have another farking oxygen-poaching mouth-breathing child.

And then the United Coalition of New Derpistan (GOP) will applaud him and he'll go down as some sort of retarded hero in the pantheon of derpy news.

Dude, it's a child not a parasite.

Sorry, angry at the dumbass parents. Just because your penis can still spew seed and her wizard sleeve can accept it, doesn't mean that it is a good idea to have kids in your 40s.

Every child is a gift! (if you are a rich asshole who can afford the insurance or the out-of-pocket expenses)

It's real easy to say every child is a gift, Rick, when you don't have to worry at night how you're going to care for the so-called gift, you prick.

No worries. I guess I'm just sensitive wrt people blaming children for events outside their control.


I understand. I guess I meant to say "Look, shiat happens, but you being a 'responsible' politician and father shouldn't be taking risks like having kids at your wife's age, and so the kids' fecklessness, albeit tragic, is your fault and you should take responsibility rather than just saying dumb shiat like 'God's Plan' you blightful piece of sanctimonious dog feces."

Not a chance. Romney at least wants a chance to get a non-Mormon woman to vote for him.

BS. He's just like McCain. He played the moderate until he got the nomination, then kissed up to the far-right.

Romney, if he wins, will cater to the idiots and be afraid to solve problems for fear of offending them.
 
2012-04-10 03:17:35 PM  

LadyBelgara: This would have worked a lot better had Santorum WON, not dropped out of the race. No, this means that we're all ready to embrace the revealed truth of Joseph Smith.

I, for one, will be immediately dropping out of school and preparing myself to love my fellow sister wives.


It says alot when the conservative cohort in this country rejects a "true" christian fundie for the "fake" christian that was branded as 'unelectable.' I mean sure, Rmoney probably won't win but that pretty much disproves the GOP's rhetoric (no surprise here)

It says alot that the US can overwhelmingly reject fundamentalism when the people trying to impose it can't even nominate one of their own.

I blame the 24hr news cycle and twitter for Santorum's rise.

"RALLY 'ROUND THE FAMILY....... WITH A POCKETFUL OF SHELLS!!!"



If I was going to give a musical subtitle I would probably go with:

Junior resented the tradition they upheld and it ate him up inside most every day. Silence was golden and they kept him to his word. So bewildered when he finally ran away. Oh, obligations never cease. Oblivious of the ways to give his soul some peace.
 
2012-04-10 03:17:48 PM  

peter21: So what did Romney offer Rick to drop out now? Pick up the tab on his campaign debt? Bleaching products?

I too think Ricky got out before a loss in PA slapped him silly. Can't make a dime as a FOX News contributer with that kind of embarrassment.


What about Ollie North? Granted, losing by 3% isn't bad, but selling weapons to Iran would blacklist you, one would think.

I did.


Here's another one.

Four more years of Obama will mean game, set, and match for the USA. His Marxist policies implemented by his Czars will transform America forever.

This is the most important election of our lifetimes. We are at the crossroads between the welfare state and liberty. The welfare state will collapse eventually and bring the nation down with it.

If Obama wins, America loses.

BOY is THAT the truth. Wake up folks - this IS the most important election of OUR ENTIRE lifetime so far. Get off that couch and DO SOMETHING for cryin out loud. Those of us in Wisconsin are trying to save our Gov. Walker from this nasty recall. Working our buns off here.

Call radio shows, write letters to the editor - short, sweet, polite and to the point. Let's do it.
 
2012-04-10 03:18:37 PM  

kimwim: From Freeperville

This means either:

1) Obama wins. Or,

2) The onerous Romney wins, fouls up horribly, cements the liberal socialist agenda in Washington, captains the economy as it collapses, guaranteeing that the Democrats will rule for another 50 years, assuming the United States itself does not collapse from its top-heavy, inefficient and totalitarian government.

In both cases, the conservative Supreme Court is lost, America's status as an economic and military superpower is over, internationalism will cause massive deprivation and suffering, our Bill of Rights will be forgotten and we will be subjected to East Germany quality nanny-statism.


We probably shouldn't tell them that the fifth "conservative" justice is known as the "swing vote" on the Supreme Court and was nominated by Reagan, right? Or that America's status as a superpower has been chipped away at for more than 10 years by China and the EU? Or that the Bill of Rights is only 10 of the 27 Constitutional amendments? (I guess they just try to ignore the ones that allow the blacks and the womens to vote.) Or that East Germany was just a nanny-state for the Soviet Union and neither one exists anymore because the fredum-lovin Americans won the Cold War?

We should probably keep all that quiet, eh?

We're not out of the woods - we still have the televangelists and Southern 'thumpers if Newt gets any traction. If any of you remember what Falwell, Bakker, and the like did in the 80's, that is what you will get with Newt. If you don't remember, or are too young to remember, read up on that part of history.

I like this one: "Now Santorum will endorse the liberal Romney, the man who has been lying about his record for the last 6 months. The man Sanatorum said could not beat Barry Soreto because of RomneyCare being the blueprint for ObamaCare. If Santorum had gotten out 4 months ago, Newt Gingrich, A REAL CONSERVATIVE would have won the nomination. Now the liberal Willard Romney becomes the GOPs sacrificial lamb in Nov. So yes Virginia, money can buy the GOP nomination, but not the presidency. Karl Rove will find that out in November. Once again the average republican is being forced fed a liberal to against another liberal for president. I am sick and tired of it. Time for a third party. Your country is calling you Governor Palin."

Falwell (Moral Majority) was pretty much out of it by the 80s. The reward goes to Pat Robertson and Ralph Reed for taking Falwell's mailing lists and turning them into the Christian Coalition.

This child was 3 years old on 9/11.

Did you think she was hot? You (me too) are now a pervert. If Rick Santorum was in charge all our licenses for the sexual realm would be suspended.


How is that possible? She looks at least 18. I guess I'll have to have a seat over there.

Man, you think the Freeper commenters are having a meltdown, the TPN ones are even more off the cliff.

"It is rigged guys.... Don't you know the New World Oder had it all planned.. Soros said. No difference between Romney and Obama. ! And I guess he is right!!! Why are we fighting for a corrupt GOP? I would my money back"

...

"Under no circumstances, even threat of limb or life, will I put pen to paper for romney...AKA lite. What is their problem? WE will kill this ticket....WE will bring this to bear upon every RINO, everywhere.

ROMNEY HAS SERIOUS ELIGIBILITY ISSUES THAT NEED TO BE ADDRESSED!!!! And, in this ELIGIBILITY battle, WE are no longer alone....the DEMS have joined the bandwagon. You think WE Conservative Birthers have been a PIA to you all, lmao? Just wait for the dems voices to be raised with OURS.

Great choice, RINO's...it spells your end."


...

Conservatives will leave the GOP. I am one of them. I will follow Newt Gingrich in voting for Romney. However, Romney has no chance to win against obama, and, as you say, the GOP will go the way of the Whig Party.

They're eating their own

You spoiled baby. Hope you enjoy 4 more years of Obama! People like you make me want to puke. If we had your types several hundred years ago we'd all be subjects now.

Quite frankly, and this might get me banned but here goes. Most all FREEPER's I've met are lazy and cheapskate bigmouth cybercowbabies. I've tried thru the local boards to recruit FREEPER's for serious candidates to help doorbell, work phone banks, go to political meetings or any other activity related to winning an election.

Know what happens 99% of the time when asking a Freeper to get involved, Hector? They act just like you. They think that by sitting behind a monitor under some nom de plume pecking out some pithy political remark here or at some other forum is a worthy contribution to the war against liberty.

So, Hector buddy, you stay home and play with yourself, but don't you dare biatch come next November when Obama sails into the Oval Office for a second term. You will be partially responsible. Thanks.
