Don't Troll Me Bro!: tony41454: His homosexual affairs, his illegal social security number, his fake birth certificate

Ah, so I can just safely assume that you are a nutter and that you have nothing of value to add to the conversation. Ya know, that link you put up earlier? I thought you were mocking the absurd shiat those people were saying. Now I know better.


Yeah, this is a guy who has no problem whatsoever posting other farker's personal information in threads he trolls (probably because hte mods protect him). He really is that unhinged.

Guntram Shatterhand: It's been noted that Mitt's using 'old friends' to run the show and that explains the collapse of his campaign and the numerous gaffes he's had.


Don't know about anyone else, but I would love to hear Eric Ferhnstrom's take on recent events.

Tony is keeping on like a trooper.

It's a bad day for the GOP faithful when the party that gave us "I'm not a crook" and "I'm not a witch" adds "I'm not a felon."

Too late. Bahleeted. The thread lost 50+ comments.

Someone had to have taken screenshots.

actually seeing it just makes it more confusing. just leaving it at 'meltdown' avoids having to translate english into english.

exactly.

The responses didn't even make sense near the end. I swear one of them ended with "purple dinosaur".

So which story was it, anyway?

The Rahm story. Although it bled into other threads.


The phrase he said was "purple monkey dishwasher" which is a Simpsons reference about the game Telephone or Whispers or whatever your country or region calls it. It was a bit strange to see it used while devoid of context or specifics, but I'm guessing he used the phrase to mean that whatever he was responding to was only, in his mind, 100% "i heard it from a friend who heard it from a friend who heard it from a friend who..." and not actually based in fact.

Dr.Zom: I think Republicans are going to retroactively choose another candidate at the convention.


I am reminded of this: when asked by a reporter why he was collecting delegates with no chance of winning, Ron Paul said (paraphrased) "well, you never know, somebody might slip up".

I bet he has known about this for some time...explains why he was being so nice to Mitt during the debates.

Weaver95: Evil Twin Skippy: Giltric: So it's like a woman on maternity leave that decides shes not going back to work.......

You get 6 weeks for Maternity, usually unpaid.

Mitt got 3 years. Paid. And he was drawing a salary from whatever the hell else he was doing. AND he was getting a cut of the take at Bain above and beyond what he was taking in on salary.

That's beyond double dipping. That full immersion greed.

and if you question it, then you are a bad person and should feel bad. also - socialisms.

But those dirty unemployed people - when THEY get $500 a month - THOSE people are evil and should be beaten in the town square. oh and unions? totally evil. we should get rid of those greedy assholes.


Speaking of unions, I think this is why Fox came out with that 'outrage' story the other day about how much more those evil union bosses make than the poor rank & file teachers. It was a preemptive deflection. Didn't work, but still.

soporific: Don't Troll Me Bro!: Karac: domino324: FTFA: "but there were questions that Governor Romney wanted to address to make sure people understood that he's not a felon,"

That's the kind of quote that can lose an election.

Thinking about it, he's technically correct. He's not been convicted, and if I follow the given details right, the statute of limitations has expired. So he's not a felon, but he hasn't denied having committed a felony.

Statute of limitations may save someone from the law, but "haha, I got away with it" won't fly well with voters.

It depends on what you get away with. If he punched a baby, for example, did the baby have it coming? Was it being a dick?

He could get away with it if people understand just what happened in the first place. If it's too complicated and won't fit in a sound byte, they may not care. "Don't vote for the baby puncher" is a lot easier to understand than "Don't vote for the guy who made some kind of statement to the SEC that..." and so on. If you can get what he did onto a bumper sticker, then it's an issue.

tony41454: You're still wasting your time with this Romney CEO stuff? What about:

"Open up your hearts and your minds to the words of Professor Derrick Bell," said Obama, and this after Bell had written that African-American leaders should "urge that instead of [African Americans] killing each other, they should go out in gangs and kill a whole lot of white people." Bell also endorsed a journal called Race Traitor, whose stated aim is "to abolish the white race."

And Jeremiah Wright who said, "Jesus was a poor black man, who lived in a culture that was controlled by rich white people." And Obama sat there with his family and listened to this guy for twenty years. He must have liked what he heard....

And then there's his long-term friendship with terrorist Bill Ayers who said, "I don't regret setting bombs" and "I feel we didn't do enough".

His homosexual affairs.....his cocaine use....his illegal social security number, his fake birth certificate, his laughable claim that his is the "most transparent" administration...his contempt of Congress, his contempt of the law.... This guy is a BS artist. A compulsive liar. And all of you are falling for it hook, line and sinker. (Not using your) mind is a terrible thing.....

As a result, the company's debt swelled from $11 million in 1993 to $444 million by 1995."

I am not sure it matters. He outsourced, destroyed towns, robbed people of their pensions...and is still within two points nationally (electoral victory is almost certain for Obama, though). Debt for the host company? Meh.
