Snatch Bandergrip: Epoch_Zero:
I'm confused as to why arguments by someone on the left against a republican being clearly bought by the Koch brothers and their ilk are completely baseless, yet the "Obama is a Wall Street puppet!" argument isn't.

It's not baseless. Obama's lack of action in bringing to justice the perpetrators of our economic meltdown is very troubling.

The problem is that this one substantial criticism is drowning under the arguments of his opponents and detractors that Obama is an anti-capitalist. It's hard to take republican butthurt seriously when their argument is "Obama is a Wall Street puppet AND a market-hating socialist!"


What's really sad is that you think those are mutually exclusive.

Obama should mention in his campaign ads that: "At least I had the good sense to get rid of Elizabeth Warren."

Craptastic: beta_plus: I don't hate Elizabeth Warren. I just love to make fun of a hypocritical idiot.

In what way has Warren been hypocritical, and how do you figure she's an "idiot"?

Your brand of "I'm laughing at you" is played out. You're not laughing, you just enjoy being a dick to people on the internet without fearing that you'll get smacked in the chops. A real patriot.

MeinRS6: rewind2846: No, what he's saying is that the closet racists in Mass decided that after a black governor and a black president were elected they could let their freak flags fly. All that vitriol under the surface came bubbling out, like pus from beneath the scab of an infected boil.

That's a ridiculous and false premise.


This is why Democrats hate Romney so much. They have become completely dependent on smearing their opponents as racist when they know that they have lost the argument. As long as Romney doesn't overplay his hand (which he might do), his Mormon Card cancels but does not trump Obama's Race Card.

/only the Retard Card and the Trans-sexual Card have been shown to trump the Race Card
//maybe Warren will say Brown is racist against her because of her Native American ancestry

FriarReb98: keylock71: FriarReb98: keylock71: He's linked to the GOP... That's more than enough for me not to vote for him.

Go Liz!

She's a book-smarts academic, and I seriously doubt she's ever going to be as bipartisan as Brown. Strike that, I seriously doubt she's ever going to vote against her party. I'm not voting for her.

Sorry, I have no intention of supporting anyone with the stink of the GOP on them. I don't give a shiat how "bipartisan" they are. The GOP has proven over and over again that they don't give a shiat about folks like me and my family in the lower middle class and Brown has done nothing to change that perception.

I'm not voting for him.

I'll happily vote for the "book-smart academic".

Voting for or against letters next to names is never going to get us out of this.


How about voting for eloquent intelligence with a dash of ethics and against I-Drive-A-Truck?

Oh. You wanna belittle her as being educated. OH! You think that will work!

/Might actually work in this case.
//In the long run we'll drown in ignorance because people want leaders who are "just like them"

Hickory-smoked: beta_plus: As you can see from this picture, she struggled because of the color of her skin to make it in evil white racist America so that one day she could protect the down trodden from evil white racist imperialism. Often she struggled to hold her tears against the vicious slurs against her native american ancestry.

You've got a whole elaborate fantasy world of magical strawmen up in your head, don't you?


He's a modern day Tolkein. Or maybe Niven...? NO!

He's like the L. Ron Hubbard of universe building. I can't wait til he finishes working out the basic outline here on Fark so he can fark off and leave us alone start working on the novel.

Actually, I was thinking more along the lines of this guy, but angrier.

Cool. Favorited as "proud to be a dick on the internet." How special to be you.
