"We're all outraged over that killing in Aurora, Colo., but we're not outraged over the boys killed in Afghanistan," Clements explained to the paper

War is hell, asshole.

Well, duh.

The billboard compares the President to a mass murderer, which does nothing but portray the typical stereotypes of black men being monsters. All this right-winged fool is doing is just spreading his bigotry

What a racist, insensitive, outrage. Someone replace that with UFIA on a big honking green backrgound.

It has nothing to do with being black. How about the number of Mexicans killed as a result of our ATF exporting guns. How about the number of people killed by our illegal war in Afghanistan.

I believe it was your hero George Dubya Bush who started those two wars that got all "your boys" killed Ida-morans.

The billboard often features anti-Obama messages, and is sponsored by The Ralph Smeed Foundation, the supporters of the late activist for libertarian causes in Idaho. Foundation member and former state lawmaker Maurice Clements, told The Idaho Statesman the billboard is a response to Obama's 'broken promise' to bring home the troops.

"We're all outraged over that killing in Aurora, Colo., but we're not outraged over the boys killed in Afghanistan," Clements explained to the paper, and added that he's not trying to connect Obama to Holmes, he's just comparing the way society reacts. "We're not saying that Obama is a lunatic," he said.


He never promised to bring home the troops from Afghanistan. He stated over and over again that he felt that that was the war to focus on.

Way to deflect with a bu...bu...but Bush. Bush finished his war victoriously when he flew that Mission Accomplished banner, after that it became Obama's war.

OK, fine, Afghanistan. So, vote for Romney because he wants to immediately withdraw all troops from Afghanistan, right?

They probably should have seen the backlash coming, but they aren't too far off. The party with which a politician affiliates is pretty irrelevant, in the grand scheme of things. Fact is, there are a distubing number of psychopathic traits found in the world of politics, mostly because those traits are CELEBRATED in that environment. Mind you, there has been some exaggeration in the media - it's not as high as 10% as I've seen way too many articles state, it's nowhere NEAR that. Even Robert Hare himself, the guy who not only did that particular research on corporate psychopathy, but came up with the most reliable psychopathy checklist we have at this point, stated outright that his research was misquoted and misrepresented. But it IS higher in those populations because of the nature of them. Think about the kinds of traits that get a person elected - glibness and charm, grandiosity, ability to lie and manipulate when necessary, passing the buck skills and unwillingness to take responsibility... Congratulations, you just went through most of the personality section of the PCL-R. These guys have to be able to sign a bill into law that will put hundreds on the street, send them to war to die, you name it, and all without a shred of remorse or affectual consequence. Politics is a very good place for them. We create our own monsters, then get mad when they breathe fire on us.

Yeah, well unlike Fartbongo, Bush didn't have a time machine. If "THE ONE"TM can't be bothered to pick up Marty & Jennifer to fix the mistakes of the past, why should anyone vote for him? Bet he doesn't even care about fixing the results on American Idol. He truly is history's greatest monster (doubly so because he has a time machine).

You put them side by side on a billboard and called them both murderers. You already derped hard, don't backpedal now.

The result of decades of Media brainwashing in the pursuit of creating ignorant consumer drones. Turned out it not only worked for selling cars, but conditioned generations to happily swallow whatever cock the Media put in front of them, politics included.

Then the world gets weird and it's not so funny anymore. Economic crisis, 9/11, wars. Suddenly those that Fox have programmed are off the reservation.

Not only did Obama NOT promise to pull out of Afghanistan, he was awarded the Nobel in Oct 2009; he'd basically just managed to take office and move in, by that point; he hadn't killed thousands yet.

Crazies be crazy.

He didn't kill thousands, he acted as the Executive. The House of Lords Senate has the only real national political power, period.

"We're all outraged over that killing in Aurora, Colo., but we're not outraged over the boys killed in Afghanistan," Clements explained to the paper

So when Bush waged war, that was alright. But when Obama wages war (continuing the same policies started by Bush), that makes him comparable to a mass shooter.

Gotcha.

No President has ever made genocide prevention a priority and no President has ever suffered politically for his indifference to its occurrence.

That politicians are psychopaths is a symptom of the problem. The cause lies with the American people.

The billboard makes a valid point in a tasteless way.
Obama shouldn't have a "peace prize", especially considering we've been involved in an unnecessary war for his entire presidency. As commander in chief of the military, all he has to do is bring everyone home. Before ppl get pissed at that: Bush sucked just as bad.

FTFY.

/Still wish we'd GTFO of Afghanistan, and the Middle East in general. But until we do, at least we have a President who knows how to actually accomplish things in this 'war'.

So he should have just pulled everyone out all at once, and make an already-unstable region collapse completely, while leaving a LOT of people over there VERY pissed at America?

Can't see why he wouldn't do something like that. Nope.

376 Iraqi civilians have died this month and America loses its shiat over 12 people killed by a nutter... I spose when brown people die it doesn't matter but when American Patriots™ die while heroically watching a movie then it's time for mourning.
 
2012-07-29 07:26:10 AM  
For all the anti-Obama propaganda I see being put out there, there's not a whole lot I'm seeing that's actively pro-Romney. Mayhaps the Powers That Be in the Rs are holding their pro-our-guy purse strings tight in case Romney flubs things so badly before the convention they end up with another candidate?
