Tyrone Slothrop: T-Servo: Now I'm going to go talk about The Avengers and Scarlett Johanson's boobies.

For what it's worth, Scarlett Johansson supports Obama, and even Mrs Servo supports SJ's boobies.

I think most people would like to support SJ's boobies.


I personally volunteer to stand behind her for the rest of her life cupping her bewbies in each hand in order to avoid those ugly marks bras sometimes make.

Occasionally taking a break to give them a motorboat massage to keep them in tip-top shape.

OBL dead - all he did was authorize the raid.



Romeny would return our troops to Iraq, if he could. He will also put us in Iran. And Romeny would not have authorized the OBL raid. If a new terror leader arises, Romeny can't be counted on to go after him with all necessary vigor. He would ask permission first.

Yes, all Osama bin Laden did was authorize the attack. . .and yet we still hold him responsible. Funny that.

2012 is a foregone conclusion. It's a choice between between the policies of slow growth and the policies of recession.

Longer term, however, how does the GOP expect to ever win another election without the presumptive authority on national security and economic policy that they previously held? I think what we're seeing is not a re-configuration of the GOP, but rather a race to determine the agenda of it's successor party.

After Romney's Detroit fiasco it is probably not good strategy to point out crowd size at Obama's rallies.
Romney drew a crowd of ~1,200 at that speech, or less than 10% of the crowd the President drew at OSU.

He's not a raging sociopath like everyone in the Republican Party?

Well, there's your problem right there. People don't get excited about politics and rush to the polls to vote for someone whose only quality is that he is not a raging sociopath.


You shut the f*ck up. You want women to be beaten so they can't claim US citizenship, and that puts you right with the falling cartridges and approving killing Hitler-Youth-style Norwegian students, as far as I'm concerned.

He is like a bolt in a car that is holding up the driver's side door. Just another piece in a complicated machine.

If the 2007-2009 recession was Bush's fault. The jobless and anemic recovery since then would fall squarely on the shoulders of Obama.


Okay, lets just get two things out of the way. First, its not jobless.

nassaucountydems.com

And second, as far as financial recessions go, its not anemic, its going extremely well as these things go. It takes a while for individuals and businesses to pay down debt.

His policies prevented a second depression and turned around the economy. No amount of word-twisting can stand against the actual data when its presented, that's why Obama's detractors rarely do so.

Apparently, the GOP's response to having low turnouts to their events is to showcase 2 Obama events with 70% plus attendance and great crowd responses and project their own obvious problem onto him most unduly.

Apparently their entire political strategy for 2012 is gonna be a variation of...

"I know you are but what am I?"

With their proxies in online community asserting that "Michelle has cooties".

Apparently, a large percentage of Republican voters are in their second childhoods.

yes. It is not the slogan of the RNC, it is a description of 0bama's results.


There's no way you're going to answer this one but I have to vent it anyway. I know a lot of people in the armed forces. My dad was a Marine, my grandfather was an engineer in WII, and all their friends, etc etc. I couldn't be. I've been to VA hospitals and I've met guys physically and mentally destroyed by wars, most of which since WWII have been bullshiat. I'd like you to sit there behind your monitor with your magnetic yellow ribbon and tell those people that Obama, who got us out of Iraq, did not go into Syria and Iran, as McCain said he wanted, got Gaddaffi with zero caualties, killed bin Laden without invading any country, tell those people that "0"bama didn't make a difference. You're a farking clueless douchebag and I'm sick of your bullshiat. Now I'm going to go talk about The Avengers and Scarlett Johanson's boobies.

You do realize that wealth travels up, not down, right?

Folks are sort of hoping that we circulate cash a bit more often, between locals before it heads out of the local economy, and into repositories outside the system. That is why local investment and smaller businesses are vital to our economy. Not the large conglomerates that take cash out almost immediately, but the folks who spend their cash inside their local area first, before it heads out...

AcneVulgaris: EnviroDude: Mugato: No you don't.

You think you know my thoughts? How presumptuous of you.

/when I graduated in the 1980's in my field, you couldn't buy a job. Many of my fellow Petroleum Engineering grads made money grabbing grocery carts at the local market before they could get any job in the oil field, much less practicing engineering (or petroleum geology for those).

Having been recently unemployed, I can empathize for those trying to find work. I ended up taking a "Wendy's Job", a job where you are so desperate to work, you would work at a Wendy's if you had to do it.

So don't be so presumptuous about my history because I criticize Obama and his failed policies.

He's not presuming about your history. He's extrapolating your selfishness from the number of times you use "I" and "me" whenever you post.


shiat, I just extrapolate based on his many previous posts in other threads about how super-awesome rich he is and how we're all just jealous and trying to punish him for being wealthy.

Plus he doesn't know how unemployment works, but we already farking knew that.

WTF does that even mean? If you're going to blame Obama, that wouldn't be trickle-up, it'd be trickle-down, since he's at the top of the pile. Trickle-up doesn't make any sense anyway because gravity. But I'll let that slide. So wait, using the traditional meaning of "trickle-down economics," which holds that as the rich get richer more scraps fall to the lower classes, this somehow means the little people are impoverishing their wealthy overlords? And again, somehow that's Obama's fault? That's retarded.

Well, coming out of recessions, we usually have a better GDP growth rate than what we've been seeing. Unemployment going down to 8.1% from 8.2% just barely escapes the "aw, crap, we're going down" stagnation to double-dip fears.

The truth is that there's not much Obama can do about it. I may be a supply-side economist, but that generally means that the honest answer is that the amount of drag government can put on the economy due to its behavior (given that Obama did not raise taxes in any meaningful way) is pretty minimal and lost in the error of any calculation.

The "Obama's economy" canard suggests that he could do something about it. That something, according to supply-side, is actually nothing, unless taxes need to be cut again, which they don't seem to need. So since "nothing" is the right answer, and what Obama HAS done can't have really made it worse, then you can neither credit nor blame him for positives and negatives.

But, then, I try to be honest about things.

Yes, but GDP was growing at >7% for the year, so slow unemployment recovery was not as concerning as our GDP growth, which is growing at a rate of ~2.2% for the year.

Yes. The four previous years coming out of the recession were 8%+. Back to normality is the entire point. When coming out of a recession, not normally, but when coming out, usually GDP growth is high. It isn't now. That's cause for concern.

It's fair to say we're not coming out of a "normal" recession.

Like I said before...there's a whole continent that we're trading with that's holding back that kind of growth.
