Davis, Wright, Ayers, Jones...instead of considering anything let's just recycle some ancient sh*t.

Weak rerun. Disappointing.

BurnShrike: FlashHarry: are you farking joking? obama is right of center by any reasonable measure.

This. The American political system is so far out of whack it's frightening. If you look at the right-wing parties in other countries, they're still farther left than the Democrats are.

Although here in Canada, unfortunately, the Conservatives are taking a page from the US play book. Let's just hope we can realize it before they drag us down the hole too.


US Conservatives have been bitten with a rabid form of racist , misogynistic , bigoted rabies. Everyone they see isn't conservative enough, or is too liberal. Everyone is an enemy in their eyes if they are not in lock step with the party - even the american people, should they not fall into line with their maddened purity mission.

Cull the infection in your government before it truly destroys your country's mind like it has ours. There is hope Canada, do not fall to darkness like we have.

Obama's entire commie platform is right out of the socialist playbook of Comrade Jack Kemp, Comrade Bob Bennett and Comrade Bob Dole.

Honestly I think they are both more or less centrist. Romney's record shows him to be really liberal for a Republican, regardless of what he says these days.

that's half of the equation. That's what allows the far right to flourish. The far left doesn't have anything like that to get 'em in the door and the ideas alone, much like the far right, ain't gonna do it

Ohh...there once was a derper name Erik the Red who came herping to Red State from old Rorikstead.

That POS article read like K-Tel greatest hits of derp.

True, but Romney's agenda while in office won't be his own; it will be the agenda of the ultra-right Teatarded Congress.

Cletus C.: There isn't too far left for hard-core libs.


There are very few actual "far left" people elected in politics in America.

I can think of only one person in all of Congress that's actually "far left." And he's not a Democrat.
 
2012-07-24 10:30:34 AM  
I don't care what side of center he is on. All that matters is that my business (we print yellow pages/white pages) has gone down the tubes since becoming the president that his combination of A)job killing resolutions and B)hatred of small business with lack of "backing us little guys up" has resulted in a year-to-year ever-decreasing orders for telephone directories to the point that we'll be obsolete.

I think Romney's record shows that he would publicly hang homosexuals on the town square if he thought it could get him a net of 1% in the polls from the conservative base. What he privately believes is rather irrelevant, particularly since no one knows.
 
2012-07-24 10:31:01 AM  
Romney has no position, he will say anything to get elected. He has no record of supporting anyone but himself.

//I have continually said; Obama is the best Republican running (I am registered GOP voter)
 
2012-07-24 10:31:43 AM  
Nah, Obama is also too far to the right. He's right of center by any rational historical political perspective.
 
2012-07-24 10:32:31 AM  
Who thinks Romney is too far to the right? There are tons of videos showing him trying to out-lib *Ted Kennedy*.

But the far leftist loons almost never get elected. The far right wing loons are running the GOP these days. Therein lies the problem.

Oh, I'm pretty sure I know one of his beliefs. It's the only consistent one he has: "Mitt Romney should be President". Everything else seems fungible.

Yes, the Center Right Obama Administration is "too far left"...

The GOP went off the deep end into Right Wing Yahoo land in 2009, and they haven't looked back.

That these clowns think Obama is "too far left" is all you need to know about the unhinged insanity that has taken over the GOP.

There are plenty of liberal parties out there. Nobody joins them. Green Party, CPUSA, SA, SWP, etc.

The guy who signed an extension of the Bush tax cuts.
The guy who signed a health care reform law that used a individual mandate (an idea stolen from Romney and the Heritage Foundation), instead of the single payer that the left wanted.
The guy who continued the war on terror by ordering the killing of bin Laden (who Bush didn't consider worth the effort), and helping to kick Quadaffi out of power (who's been linked to terrorism since the 80's).
The guy who signed a NDAA that would allow indefinite detention of US citizens by the military.

Clearly, he is a democat leftists' wet dream come true.

There are tons of videos showing him trying out out everything everyone. The guy is an empty suit. You have to look at who's pushing hardest to get him elected to figure out what his Presidency will be like. Hint: big oil and neoconservatives.

It absolutely would be GW Bush all over again. I guaran-effin-tee we'll have boots on the ground in Iran within 2 years of Romney is elected.

Oh noe, you're a Mets fan?

I'm sorry. Seriously. I was busy cleaning all of my brewing equipment, resigning myself to the fact that, while the Nats blew another late lead, at least it wasn't 9-0 this time (as a Washington Sports Fan, assuming defeat early is part of my coping mechanism). Then I blinked at we were up 8-2.

I didn't see any highlights afterward though. Wha Happen? Is your bullpen really that bad? Because whoever your starter was last night was kind of owning us.

From the 25 points plan of the Nazi party

7. We demand that the State shall above all undertake to ensure that every citizen shall have the possibility of living decently and earning a livelihood. If it should not be possible to feed the whole population, then aliens (non-citizens) must be expelled from the Reich.

10.The first duty of every citizen must be to work mentally or physically. No individual shall do any work that offends against the interest of the community to the benefit of all.

12. Since every war imposes on the people fearful sacrifices in blood and treasure, all personal profit arising from the war must be regarded as treason to the people. We therefore demand the total confiscation of all war profits.

13. We demand the nationalization of all trusts.

14. We demand profit-sharing in large industries.

15. We demand a generous increase in old-age pensions.

16. We demand the creation and maintenance of a sound middle-class, the immediate communalization of large stores which will be rented cheaply to small tradespeople, and the strongest consideration must be given to ensure that small traders shall deliver the supplies needed by the State, the provinces and municipalities.

17. We demand an agrarian reform in accordance with our national requirements, and the enactment of a law to expropriate the owners without compensation of any land needed for the common purpose. The abolition of ground rents, and the prohibition of all speculation in land.

18. We demand that ruthless war be waged against those who work to the injury of the common welfare. Traitors, usurers, profiteers, etc., are to be punished with death, regardless of creed or race.

20. In order to make it possible for every capable and industrious German to obtain higher education, and thus the opportunity to reach into positions of leadership, the State must assume the responsibility of organizing thoroughly the entire cultural system of the people. The curricula of all educational establishments shall be adapted to practical life. The conception of the State Idea (science of citizenship) must be taught in the schools from the very beginning. We demand that specially talented children of poor parents, whatever their station or occupation, be educated at the expense of the State.

COMMON GOOD BEFORE INDIVIDUAL GOOD

25. In order to carry out this program we demand: the creation of a strong central authority in the State, the unconditional authority by the political central parliament of the whole State and all its organizations.

If you're a liberal you can pick up your brown shirt and jack boots over there, because conservatives tend to disagree with every single one of those things, now would you like to explain how liberals disagree with them?

I think his record shows that he would say that to anyone who wanted to hear it, if it got him votes. As for actually doing it, I don't think there's any proof that he'll do anything that he says he will.

I wouldn't consider Sanders even to be "far left" - I don't see him demanding any government confiscation of production means. There are exactly zero far lefties in Congress whereas the Republican caucus is populated by bona fide fascists.

Great point. Yet, the cognitive dissonace will continue unabated as millions of useful idiots on the left will head to the polls in November with smug dreamy smiles on their faces to line up to vote for him. I bet fewer than 10% would even know what "NDAA" stands for.

Yeah, the starters are good, and the bullpen is bad. With great names like Bobby Parnell, John Rausch, Tim Byrdak, and Pedro Beato, how can we go wrong? You'll want to thank Byrdak for the 6-run 10th inning last night.
