(Washington Post)   While it's true Mitt Romney was CEO, sole owner, and managing director, he says he didn't have anything to do with Bain, so Obama is a liar. It's all laid out in this text wall of obfuscation   (washingtonpost.com) divider line 684

WombatControl: Yeah, please keep farking that chicken. Sure, it's been reduced to a smouldering pile of blood and feathers, but fark away good little sycophants, fark away!

So far the Obama campaign has found a treasure trove of documents that have been in the public record for a decade and confirm exactly what Romney has always said, but apparently in the limited faculties of Democratic operatives they mean that Romney will be deported to Iceland and Obama automatically wins.

Meanwhile, millions of Americans are still jobless - while the Democrats fark the chicken over Bain.

The economy is still in the crapper - but the Democrats can't hear that over the pained squawks of a chicken being farked into oblivion.

Egypt is turning into Afghanistan 2.0, but that's OK, because the Democrats have to fark that chicken.

Nope, none of that matters - don't talk about Obama's record as President. I hear Mitt Romney once jaywalked - and the Democratic Party must start furiously farking that chicken too!


Go fark yourself. The republicans are the Harlem Globetrotters of cheap politics but when the Washington Generals score an occasional basket, oh the horror!! Not that this is even cheap politics. It's a legitimate issue that the republicans and point guard Karl Rove would have been screaming about x10 if it had happened to a democrat. And you would have been cheering them on just like you probably did with the BS swiftboater campaign.

YoungSwedishBlonde: Weaver95: ah, there's the Rush Limbaugh we know and love! asking questions about Bain capital is 'dismantling the free market economy that has made this country so great'.

The funny thing is, if Bain were to hypothetically buy out EIB, Rush would be the first person fired because plenty of people would spew out GOP talking points 4 hours a day for a hell of a lot less than 50 million a year.


Yes, but GOP talking points don't sound as convincing when they are read out by an Indian call center lackey.

Thrag: This is a good lesson in how a barely competent campaign can turn a relatively "meh" issue into a major thorn in it's own side.


And really, this is one of his more minor lies. I'm not exactly sure why this one is getting traction when all of the other ones haven't. Maybe it's because this one could potentially lead to a criminal investigation.

no, I wouldn't. Just as you are not involved in the operation of your car if you let a friend borrow it. You can take it back at any time to become the active operator of the car and bear some sort of moral responsibility for things he does with it with your knowledge but you are not involved in its operation - even passively - in any way while he has it.

timujin: Wendy's Chili: However, we have identified at least six filings that Romney did sign during this period: a April 13,, 1999 13D filing by Pirod Holdings regarding an investment in Rohn Industries; a Jan. 3, 2000 13D filing by VMM Merger Corp. regarding an investment in VDI MultiMedia; a Feb. 14, 2000 13G filing by Bain Capital Fund IV regarding Wesley Jessen Visioncare; a Feb. 13, 2001 13G filing by Bain Capital Fund VI regarding Integrated Circuit Systems; a Feb. 14, 2001 13G filing by Bain Capital Fund VI regarding ChipPAC; and a November 12, 1999 13G filing (first reported by Mother Jones) by Bain Capital Fund VI regarding Stericycle.

These few filings may just represent the winding down of affairs.

Alright, so Romney IS lying, but shiat... my professional reputation is on the line. I can't admit defeat now. Gimme that chicken!

Add to that, this:
Mitt Romney testified to Massachusetts officials in 2002 that he maintained business ties during his Olympics work

And, yes, no matter how you slice it, he lied. Either he wasn't with Bain and lied and said he was, or he was with Bain and has been lying when he says he wasn't.


he's Schrodinger's candidate. He can be both at once. The time-space continuum has no hold on him.

You mean the very same mujihadeen that helped us fight the Taliban a few years later? Because the guys we supported in the 1980s (like Ahmad Shah Masood) were the same people who ended up in the Northern Alliance fighting the Taliban.

(Here's a hint: the name "Taliban" is the plural of talib, which is Arabic/Pashto for "student." The Taliban were students who had been displaced from Afghanistan and ended up in radical madrassahs in Pakistan. The Taliban didn't exist as any kind of organized force until 1991 - and then they were funded by Pakistan, not the US.

It's not Obama's "fault," but it's a problem that we're basically ignoring. Mohammad Morsi is taking Egypt and turning it into a hardcore Islamist state. And what have we done in Egypt? Not a damn thing. We haven't provided any aid to the pro-democracy forces, we haven't done anything but sit around and watch.

So far the Middle East is worse off now than it was when Bush left office:

- Afghanistan is a quagmire - US casualties are up substantially there (but since those dead can't be used as political props against a Republican we don't hear about it from the media). All we're doing now is trying to contain the damage before we pull out and the country goes to shiat again.
- Syria is in civil war, and we're doing nothing. That civil war has already spread into Lebanon. The Syrians are damn close to using chemical weapons on their own people and have moved sarin into the Homs region.
- Islamists have taken over much of North Africa, which gives them a base of power. Even relatively liberal Tunisia is seeing a resurgence of Islamist sentiment, and their moderates could lose out in the end.
- Iran is still heading towards a nuclear weapon, and the only outcomes are a military confrontation (which is as likely under Obama as it is under Romney - especially since neither can stop Israel from defending itself) or an Iranian nuclear weapon, which would also be disastrous.

Oddly enough, Iraq is actually one of the more stable places in the region right now - thanks in large part to the "surge" that President Obama opposed.

There's a reason why President Obama isn't running on his foreign policy record - because other than killing bin Laden (which was a no-brainer), his record is crappy at best.

Gee, guess that big speech in Cairo really changed the world, didn't it? A few years later and the Middle East has gone to shiat - too bad lofty speeches are meaningless and what's required in the region is for the US to actually put its words into practice.

Three questions:

1) Are the people in Africa and the Middle East not allowed to choose Islamists to be their governing executives and members of legislatures?
2) Are we required to intervene in every conflict that arises on the planet no matter what?
3) Has it ever occurred to you that maybe part of the reason we get into so many wars is because we created the conditions that caused us to get into those wars in the first place?

And what have we done in Egypt? Not a damn thing. We haven't provided any aid to the pro-democracy forces, we haven't done anything but sit around and watch.


So you want us to intervene in Egypt's affairs because they didn't vote for the guy you wanted them to vote for?

WombatControl: - Afghanistan is a quagmire - US casualties are up substantially there (but since those dead can't be used as political props against a Republican we don't hear about it from the media). All we're doing now is trying to contain the damage before we pull out and the country goes to shiat again.


Afghanistan was already a quagmire when Bush left office because he neglected it to focus on winning a war for daddy in Iraq.

WombatControl: - Syria is in civil war, and we're doing nothing. That civil war has already spread into Lebanon. The Syrians are damn close to using chemical weapons on their own people and have moved sarin into the Homs region.


Agreed. But the US can't do that alone.

WombatControl: - Islamists have taken over much of North Africa, which gives them a base of power. Even relatively liberal Tunisia is seeing a resurgence of Islamist sentiment, and their moderates could lose out in the end.


And the US should've done what exactly?

WombatControl: - Iran is still heading towards a nuclear weapon, and the only outcomes are a military confrontation (which is as likely under Obama as it is under Romney - especially since neither can stop Israel from defending itself) or an Iranian nuclear weapon, which would also be disastrous.


Israel isn't going to do squat without our help, they've flat out admitted that to the public. Saber-rattling is not going to help.

WombatControl: Gee, guess that big speech in Cairo really changed the world, didn't it? A few years later and the Middle East has gone to shiat - too bad lofty speeches are meaningless and what's required in the region is for the US to actually put its words into practice.


So basically when you guys said you wanted to spread democracy to the Middle East, you really meant democracy that agrees with you. The fact that you want to intervene in any country that looks at the US the wrong way shows what kind of farked up worldview that you have.

You guys really make me sick treating Middle Eastern affairs like it's a pissing match. These are people's lives we're talking about here.

You and your ilk insisting that we should intervene in every country in the Middle East really needs to go fark themselves.

SphericalTime: FTA: We readily admit that there is grey area about Romney's involvement with Bain in the 1999-2002 period[.]

That's putting it mildly.


What an odd statement. It comes off as if they are trying to defend Romney. Weird.

Serious Black: Mrtraveler01: WombatControl: Gee, guess that big speech in Cairo really changed the world, didn't it? A few years later and the Middle East has gone to shiat - too bad lofty speeches are meaningless and what's required in the region is for the US to actually put its words into practice.

It's neoconservatives like him which make me never trust one who holds a position higher than assistant manager at 7-11.

skullkrusher: Philip Francis Queeg: Really pissed that your own analogy backfired on you, huh? It's Ok Sparky. Your family will still have your performance on Fark as their greatest pride.

you had your chance to make your argument. You failed miserably. All that's left to do is for me to mock you.

Did I not thank you enough for your assistance in making my argument with your analogy? Forgive me if I did. You really drove my point home.

Aldon: skullkrusher: Aldon: skullkrusher: I am not drunk in any way. Though, I have the power to get drunk at any time. Ergo, I am wasted

You may or may not be drunk, but you did have operational control of that bottle of Jack though :-)

I did have control and could have chosen to drink at anytime. Therefore, I am a liar when I say that I have not had any involvement whatsoever in operating that bottle of Jack today.

/this is what spinless, dishonest farkwits actually believe!

Easy Francis, obviously you are winning. I can tell by all the insults.


It's Friday and I am enjoying the desperation

Serious Black: WombatControl: Mrtraveler01: Serious Black: Mrtraveler01: WombatControl: Egypt is turning into Afghanistan 2.0, but that's OK, because the Democrats have to fark that chicken.

Yeah, it's a real shame that we invaded Egypt...oh wait.

I also don't recall us giving arms to the natives who were fighting against Mubarak's forces like Reagan did with the mujahideen against the Soviets.

But Egypt is totes Obama's fault somehow, IT'S GOTTA BE!!!!!

It's not Obama's "fault," but it's a problem that we're basically ignoring. Mohammad Morsi is taking Egypt and turning it into a hardcore Islamist state. And what have we done in Egypt? Not a damn thing. We haven't provided any aid to the pro-democracy forces, we haven't done anything but sit around and watch.

So far the Middle East is worse off now than it was when Bush left office:

- Afghanistan is a quagmire - US casualties are up substantially there (but since those dead can't be used as political props against a Republican we don't hear about it from the media). All we're doing now is trying to contain the damage before we pull out and the country goes to shiat again.
- Syria is in civil war, and we're doing nothing. That civil war has already spread into Lebanon. The Syrians are damn close to using chemical weapons on their own people and have moved sarin into the Homs region.
- Islamists have taken over much of North Africa, which gives them a base of power. Even relatively liberal Tunisia is seeing a resurgence of Islamist sentiment, and their moderates could lose out in the end.
- Iran is still heading towards a nuclear weapon, and the only outcomes are a military confrontation (which is as likely under Obama as it is under Romney - especially since neither can stop Israel from defending itself) or an Iranian nuclear weapon, which would also be disastrous.

Oddly enough, Iraq is actually one of the more stable places in the region right now - thanks in large part to the "surge" that President Obama opposed.

There's a reason why P ...

Three questions:

1) Are the people in Africa and the Middle East not allowed to choose Islamists to be their governing executives and members of legislatures?
2) Are we required to intervene in every conflict that arises on the planet no matter what?
3) Has it ever occurred to you that maybe part of the reason we get into so many wars is because we created the conditions that caused us to get into those wars in the first place?


1.) Yes, they can. But when you have pro-democracy movements that could use international support and you sit on your ass and do nothing to help them, that's an abdication of leadership. Especially after giving a lofty speech in Cairo on how important real democracy is. Oh, wait, every Obama promise comes with an expiration date, doesn't it?

2.) No, and that's not what's being argued.

3.) Has it ever occured to you than maybe the reason we get into so many conflicts is because we're the only ones who have the ability to make a difference? And because we have the dominant global culture, which really offends people who want everyone to live in the 7th Century?

Of course not, it's the "blame America first" mentality again - it's somehow all America's fault.

OK, I bow to your superior self-regard. Let's stop creatingthe conditions that causes us to be in conflict wit the Middle East. We'll bomb Israel into dust, execute all our gays, make sure no women vote, drive, own property, or travel without a male relative and generally embrace Salafi Islam. There, no more wars in the Middle East.

Read Sayid Qutb, because he's very clear on what Islamism's political and military goals are. Our mere existence is viewed as an affront to Islam.

Worked great in Iran when we backed the Shah...

Also worked great when we backed Batista in Cuba.

The_Six_Fingered_Man: quantum_csc: rohar: But he can't campaign on his experience as Governor of Mass. Obamacare and all. So it's down to the Olympics. Give it a week and that will be pulled out from under him too.

Wasn't there some massive bribery scandal around the Olympics?

Yes, regarding the Salt Lake Organizing Committee. Romney was then brought in to clean it up. Probably not the example you were looking for to discredit Romney.


BS. If I can take a page from recent GOP playbooks, Rmoney can be linked to international bribery and scandal via the Salt Lake Olympics. Nothing more need be proven. It is sufficient that he is smeared.

The funny thing is that you think intervening in every Middle Eastern country is going to help when history shows that strategy blowing up in the US faces everytime...literally.

Or when we helped install Ngo Dinh Diem as President of the Republic of Vietnam and then assassinated him.

What pro-democracy movement are you talking about and how exactly should the US have supported them?

Hobodeluxe: Obama's already got a new ad out. Ouch


Nice, perfect tone. Now Romney's only choice is to say he has been lying about no involvement or that even though the documents say he is in charge, he wasn't because of some nuanced reason that might be hard for the unwashed masses to understand.

It is not about what is 'technically' correct or legally defensible, the Obama campaign seems to know that.

If you asked someone what he did for a living and he said he was the CEO and sole share holder of Bain capital, then you find out he did nothing in Bain and actually worked for the Olympics you would think the person lied to you about what he did for a living. It doesn't really matter that no law was broken and that he might be right on some nuanced technicality.

Have you read Washington Rules or The Limits Of Power by Andrew Bacevich? Those were both mind-blowing books that really crystallized my views on our foreign policy.

But this time it'll totally be different! WombatControl told us so!
