Brubold: Just remember this after the elections should Romney win. Spiking the football is okay according to both Obama and Dems as a whole based on their reactions to the ruling.


When have we ever said it wasn't?

starsrift: Issuing a brief statement like, "STILL a BFD" (emphasis mine) with a link to a shirt sale can't really be taken any other way.


I take it as fundraising while reminding supporters that ACA is important and targeted for repeal by the opposition.

So, proved you wrong.

cameroncrazy1984: starsrift: "Talking about his accomplishments" is mentioning in a campaign ad or a speech.

Or on your campaign's twitter?


Talking about accomplishments is things listing them off as reasons for re-election. Inviting discussion. Putting up a victorious troll after cementation of the victory, "Still a big farking deal" and offering a shirt that says the same while deleting anything except butthurt responses is not talking about it, it's revelling in victory and rubbing your opponent's noses in it; gloating. If you don't see that, I'm afraid there's really no common ground of discussion, and you speak a dialect of English extremely foreign to me. I shan't say any more on the subject, my piece has been sufficiently expounded upon.

Carry on.

Healthcare is a BFD is...not a reason for re-election?

Possibly valid point, conceded.

starsrift: That's not someone talking about his accomplishments, that's gloating.


gloat/glōt/
Verb:
Contemplate or dwell on one's own success or another's misfortune with malignant pleasure:
-------
gloat (glt)
intr.v. gloat·ed, gloat·ing, gloats
To feel or express great, often malicious, pleasure or self-satisfaction:

Not being obtuse - how do you construe "Still a BFD" as gloating rather than simply "talking about one's accomplishments"? Where's the malice? Where's the "great self-satisfaction" expressed by this tweet? Really - I don't see it.

Yes, I do. I speak the English language that exists over here in reality.

Relevant part. There's no additionally context provided of "this is why you should vote for me". Just dwelling on the victory. NHA's point notwithstanding.

Dwelling? Really? A 2.5 word tweet is dwelling?
 
2012-06-30 12:36:58 PM  

I_C_Weener: "president tweets" is the part I can't get past.

Clinton gave 4 hour speeches. Now our president is down to 140 characters?

I hate this generations technology.


It's about getting the message out. Today's generation uses Twitter, so use it, too.

I_C_Weener: Plus he won't friend me on Facebook


Yeah, me either. I think it's coz I told him he could be my Clinton and I'd wear the blue dress ANY DAY

Probably came on too strong. :-/

Where's that in the tweet?

Larry Mahnken: mrshowrules: Why the full body orgasms? Because they were convinced that Obamacare being overruled would have cost them the election and it being upheld makes Obama's re-election almost a certainty.

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.

This election is going to be decided on the economy anyway. Just like people aren't talking about bin Laden anymore, they're not talking about Obama's gay marriage support anymore, they won't be talking about the ACA ruling in November, at least not nearly this much. They'll be talking about the economy.

And the worst part for Obama is that Germany has a lot more control over it than we do.


Galvanized is one thing. shiatting your pants is another. They reek of defeat, desperation and fear. The only victory the GOP could have had was showing that Obama overreached and has no credibility. That could have had some traction with that and Liberals were worried about that. Now, many Americans are sick of the debate and the idea of throwing it out and re-starting from scratch will just make them sick.

Romney has no credibility on this issue and it is easily dismissed. Many Americans like voting for a winner. The GOP looks like a big loser right now and they look desperate. All they have left is fear and anger. Not a winning strategy.

This is twitter ffs. People actually take this seriously?

Here's the probable GOP twitter response to Obama's twit:

"mister presidint u r a poopyhead"

HeartBurnKid: mrshowrules: TsarTom: Let's break down the link's url to see what the president is really saying

OFA.BO/ayPgAZ

Ofay Boooooy. Paging Arizona

I guess that proves my point.

/does not actually have a point

I deconstructed it earlier. There has been two inappropriately exuberant outbursts from the President's campaign/administration. This staffer and the Director of DNC. "BFD" and "Biatches". This is actually out of character for Obama's staff/campaign. They farked up and the only reason is that they were farking having full body orgasms over the ruling.

Why the full body orgasms? Because they were convinced that Obamacare being overruled would have cost them the election and it being upheld makes Obama's re-election almost a certainty.

[i47.tinypic.com image 250x250]


I'm saying they think this gives Obama a win in November and that is fine by me.
 
2012-06-30 12:44:32 PM  
Seems a lot of folks don't think the President should be so uppity.

randomjsa: "Still a BFD but I was completely wrong about the Commerce clause and about it being a tax. You're not actually going to hold me to that 'no taxes on anyone under 250k are you'?"


Keep farking that chicken, bro.

rudemix: I love how true patriotic descenters and defenders of American ideals and the constitution could give a fark a majority of the population voted the president into office in complete accordance with the constitution.


You will notice that the ones who wrap themselves in the flag the loudest give the lowest fark about the actual principles of the country.

Much like how the loudest christians are usually the most un Christ-like.

That's all they do. They are completely incapable of producing better alternatives. Step 2 for them is always ????.

The democrats have some issues and can be improved, but the current GOP offers nothing but mistakes, failure and worse problems.

2012-06-30 01:12:56 PM  

Waldo Pepper: yes yes I do. just because you say only initials doesn't hide the content behind the letters.


So saying something sucks is profanity?

It refers to a sexual act.

The only reason that BFD was used, or is relevant, is because of Biden's statement at the signing.
It is a humorous reference to what was overheard.
Obama is a classy, proper and rather formal guy. (for the most part)
Professor Obama.

So the tweet, and T-shirt, are funny.
 
2012-06-30 01:20:26 PM  
I'm expecting him to stay somewhere near as classy as the kind of Congressman who would shout out "You lie!" in the middle of a speech by the President. When Obama stoops to that kind of no-class, go ahead and send out the Town Crier.

Right now, you've just sent the Town cryer to my door, and if you send him freaking out aboutnothing again. I'm going to have to put a bullet in his head.

2012-06-30 01:32:17 PM  
The far right lunatic fringe isn't going to get over this easily. They just can't wrap their head around the idea that something is so cleanly legal even a conservative courts won't go all political on the POTUS and dump it.

But if the right is going to go all high road and classy now, I'm okay with that.
 
2012-06-30 01:41:02 PM  

Waldo Pepper: I can forgive pretty much anything Biden does, sort of the Dan Quayle of the Dems.


Go read Joe Bidens biography WIKI

Biden makes the phrase 'career politician' a compliment. Probably the most honest and decent man in American politics.

Comparing him to Quayle, or Cheney, is just farking ridiculous.

If you think BFD on a t-shirt is demeaning the office (or the Office, it seems to vary randomly), but you find endless rationalizations for a man ignoring the fact that an employee was banging little boys, you might be trolling.

The ACA aka Obamacare was and is Big Freeping Deal.

Seriously, I went to Freep earlier and they are right off their meds over this.

/More seriously, it's a baby step in the right direction towards universal health care.

Some 19 yo staffer tweeting this information is not a BFD.

Love the RWers ITT trying to work the "Obama said no new taxes for those making less than 250k and this is a tax therefore Sarah Palin in retroactively the 44th President and Obama has to construct a life sized statue of Reagan by hand entirely out of jelly beans" line of shiat.

From their shambles of a pile of talking points on this issue post SCOTUS decision they appear to have elected the strategy of trying to project Bush the Elders failure to achieve re-election due to his "Read my Lips No new taxes" thing onto Obama.

Morons.

Obama *is* a class act and so is Michelle.

Only a partisan hack would fail to acknowledge this simple truth.
