DarwiOdrade: Waldo Pepper: if you have "heard beneath the office" a million times, I would think you have to wonder exactly what is going on over there or why are you watching Fox news if yo hated it so much.

What's going on is a completely obvious double-standard when it comes to Obama, and I watch Fox News because I like to get several versions of things, though I admit their version least resembles reality (with the exception of Shep Smith who is usually pretty honest).


not a double standard on my part. I find this beneath whoever is in the office.

You still have yet to demonstrate that there is any profanity involved at all. Three letters on a tshirt do not a profanity make. Just like a bleeped curse word on TV doesn't get a fine from the FCC.

Sure you do. Which is why you've changed the subject from the twitter to the T-shirt, and just given Bush a pass on a similar thing.

Your concern trolling was amusing for a while, but I think I'm done with it.

cameroncrazy1984: Waldo Pepper: sure we all know thats what the F stand for.

Yes we do. Flippin.

Right? I mean, that's also a common usage .


Flippin', friggin', freakin'... though honestly, I'd prefer it if we all just went with f*cking. There's absolutely nothing wrong with the word. It's extremely versatile - it can be used in insults, as a placeholder for certain physical acts, or (as in this case), to convey a sense of urgency.

The stock attempt at rational (using the term loosely) justification for the "offensiveness" of this word usually ends up being some variation of "But it's putting sexy thoughts in my head and I want them gone!" Which, of course, rings hollow once you realize that there are plenty of other words and phrases (such as "intercourse", "bang" and "do it", just to name a few) that are commonly used in those very contexts without being considered irredeemably obscene.

Or, to put it differently, anybody who still finds themselves "offended" by this word should at the very least have the intellectual consistency to admit that they're objecting to a sound and nothing more - and then go f*ck themselves.

cameroncrazy1984: Waldo Pepper: HeartBurnKid: Waldo Pepper: I don't believe I have indicated a preference for either side in my post. I am referring to the Office of the Presidency. I even stated I would say the same thing if either Bush or Clinton did this, I must admit Twitter in the hands of Nixon would have been fun lol

So, were you this outraged when Bush called Adam Clymer a "major-league asshole" on national TV?

did he put it on a t shirt?

So, to recap:

Saying a major profanity on network TV does not diminish the office of the President.

Putting an acronym on a tshirt that might be construed as a profanity does.

Does that about cover it?


first there is a huge difference between speaking to the moment and putting in a t shirt. I would think the FCC would even agree. If Bush said it in an interview vs Bush wearing t shirt with it on it in a tape episode of Dallas.

I do believe I said if Obama used in a laid back conversation, MTV interview something of that nature no biggie.

I don't think democrats are boasting as much as reveling in the over the top butt hurt being displayed by the GOP. All the talk about the end of democracy and moving to Canada just begs to be mocked.

So you did find Bush's on-air "asshole" comment to be beneath the office, too, as well as Cheney's "Go fark yourself" comment? Why haven't you said so already? Are you really going to try to claim that an acronym on a T-shirt that people must voluntarily purchase is more offensive than profanity over an open microphone on a network broadcast that went into millions of homes?

Larry Mahnken: cameroncrazy1984: Larry Mahnken: cameroncrazy1984: Larry Mahnken: I'm pretty liberal, but it certainly doesn't do that. The law can still be repealed -- that's the only way conservatives get rid of it now -- and the ruling may have galvanized them to repeal it.

As a liberal, I don't think you understand how legislation works.

Let's see:

1) Conservatives go out and vote for Romney, conservative congressmen, conservative senators, and take over the White House, Senate and keep the House
2) Conservatives eliminate the filibuster in the Senate on day one (when a majority vote is all that's necessary to change the rules)
3) Conservatives vote to repeal the ACA on day one
4) Romney signs the repeal of the ACA on day one

What am I missing here?

The fact that Romney will never be President.

I would hope so, but if Europe crashes in September or early October, and the economy here reverts to 2008, Obama's gonna get the blame for that, and yes, Romney will win.

This election is not about Romney, it's about Obama.


It's pretty sad when the opposition's strategy for victory is hoping a foreign economic crisis crashes the U.S. economy so everyone will blame it on the current president rather than base a strategy on positive ideas.

how am I judging Obama's actions using a double standard? I stated I would feel this way from any President in office.

If Adams, Lincoln, FDR, Nixon had done this (assuming they could) I would feel the same way.

I don't feel I have to explain how this is beneath the office to you, you understand how it can be viewed that way.

what do you care what else I might find beneath the office. the subject is simply the tweet and shirt. Nothing more and nothing less.

so why do you feel this is okay for a sitting President to use an acronym that is often used to mean big farking deal.

At the height of the Vietnam War, [Canadian] Prime Minister Lester Pearson visited President Lyndon Johnson at the White House. Pearson gave a scathing speech one night about the war, then appeared at the White House the next day to confront a livid Johnson. As Martin describes it, LBJ grabbed Pearson by the shirt collar, lifted the prime minister off the floor and shouted, "You pissed on my rug!"

On one occasion, some reporters asked Johnson in an off-the-record gathering to explain America's participation in Vietnam. There was no satisfactory answer to that question in LBJ's brain, so he unzipped, revealed his not-so private member, and stated: "This is why!"

To be absolutely fair to Republicans, and not necessarily W. Pepper who appears to be succesfully trolling, this thread on Fark has been focusing in on the abbreviated curseword. Gazing at it without a sense of partisanship, I think I can agree that it is beneath the office of the president to gloat in front of his domestic opposition. And I don't really care who's sitting. It was in poor taste with W's infamously erroneous "Mission Accomplished" shot - though that was trifle more subtle as it was clothed in mock military and populist victory - and it's in poor taste now.

You still have yet to demonstrate that there is any profanity involved at all. Three letters on a tshirt do not a profanity make. Just like a bleeped curse word on TV doesn't get a fine from the FCC.

I feel it is too. I feel like it's a complete non-issue, right up there with arugula and binder clips. But I do feel like putting BFD on a t-shirt is beneath the presidency. Not because of the potential profanity, just because it's tacky. I'd feel the same way if it said "Health Care! YEEE-HAAA!" or "WE GOT HEALTH CARE ALL UP IN HERE!"

But still a non-issue, as it would have been if the Bush Administration had released a "Counter-terrorism is a BFD." shirt.
