LordJiro: TheLalagah: 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.

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.


No no, he should have brought everyone home. EVERYONE. He should have closed all American military bases not located within the United States the day he took office.

Well DUH. Like all mass murderers, the Aurora shooter is a Liberal Commie.

starsrift: 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.


As a norwegian .. I actually had to check the calendar to see whether it was april first when I hear Obama had been awarded the NPP. I still don't understand why. The best theory I can come up with is that the committee was happy that the US had elected a non-republican president ...

... in which case it would have been better to give the award to the US voters in general for "turning away from the destructive path they've been on" or some such thing, and let Obama pick it up on behalf of said voters.

Ah well. The NPP is a hit or miss thing. Always has been, always will be.

Jorn the Younger: 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?




There certainly won't be a different Republican candidate, that's just not going to happen. I think it's more that no one really supports Romney. "Anti-Obama" does not equal "pro-Romney"; which is why Obama will win the election even if it's much closer than it should be. (see also: Bush vs. Kerry in 2004 for a similar situation.)

It doesn't help that there's nothing pro- to say about Romney, or at least nothing that doesn't go against the party line.

EnviroDude: cman: EnviroDude: cman: 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

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.

What I posted was satire

What I posted is what is being ignored by the democrats.

It's politics and is its fair.


Remind me...who was it that sent the troops over to Afghanistan in the first place?

This is how I would run the Romney campaign. There is no way you can make an Obama voter vote for Romney. None at all. You probably can't even convince most of the undecided. What you can do, is poison the well and demoralize everyone. Throw anything at Obama you can - community violence, wars, deficits, health care, tattoos and bar mitzvahs - it doesn't even have to be real or make any sense whatsoever. Just throw it at him and be angry about it. The stupider the claim, the angrier you should be. You're too angry to make any damn sense and that's why people should listen. Make enough people just so disillusioned that they'll vote 3rd party (ha!) or not vote at all.

I'm not in anyway saying this billboard has anything to do with Romney, what I am saying is that it is the best strategy there is to get under the skins of the not terribly committed, but probably voting Obama voters.

I don't think Obama thought he should have gotten the Nobel Peace Prize. It's one of those things that's just weird.
 
2012-07-29 08:10:45 AM  
I may have missed it, but I haven't seen anyone comment on the "Making Statism Unpopular" thing at the top of the billboard.

Now that's the slogan of a thoroughly rational and reasonable organization if there ever was one.
 
2012-07-29 08:14:42 AM  
That's revolting.

Mostly because its precisely the same sort of thing we could expect liberals to do if a Republican was in office.

You see, this is the Republicans settling the debate for me. I'm far more inclined to vote for the guy with the working time machine out of fear he could send a legion of Obamanators back in time to kill me before I can vote against him.

Also: because the government had dissolved and the Taliban government wasn't recognized by any other nations, we didn't declare way, what we invaded wasn't a country, according to international law. It was an area in a state of anarchy.

That's pretty much it. It was little more than a big "f**k you" to the Bush administration.
 
2012-07-29 08:34:46 AM  
I could care less what some right wing trolls call the President. For the most part they're either completely unhinged or massively deluded anyway.

But using the Aurora shootings like this to make a totally unrelated political point...?

DIAF.

This is strictly a referendum on Obama. Romney is a placeholder candidate - he'll show that there is a white alternative to Obama, but any time he makes the mistake of opening his mouth it's an unmitigated disaster for his campaign. No one likes him, but some hate Obama more.

"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

Hey guess what? YES WE ARE. The only difference is we've been against it since the beginning, you're just against it when it serves your politics.

So basically you're saying it should have a picture of Bush on it......or Obamas secret time machine.
 
2012-07-29 09:11:20 AM  
I love that people are equating Iraq and Libya to show that Obama is as bad as Bush. Good luck with those comparisons. I farted last night while my cat was sitting on the other end of the couch. He jumped up and shouted "hiroshima!" and then passed out. Totally comparable.

I also love that Obama broke a promise of ending the war in Afghanistan when he has never suggested anything like that...ever. Not to mention people complaining that he hasn't brought troops home when, in bizarro world, they are complaining that he is surrendering with a cut-and-run strategy.

if this guy hadn't been able to get these guns because he was mental or if he hadn't been able to purchase gas grenades and 100 round clips for his assault rifle things might have turned out different. thanks NRA for making sure a thorough background check with a psych evaluation and proper waiting period isn't required. and that anyone with a credit card can get damn near anything they want ,as much as they want.

If someone HAD fired back, it would've been ineffective at best, unless they just HAPPENED to bring a gun loaded with rounds that could pierce body armor. That's if they could even hit the guy in the dark, tear-gas filled theater. At worst (And most likely), a crossfire would have caused even more casualties.

In short, real life isn't an action movie, dipshiat. Even in a movie theater.

Thanks for proving your ignorance/fear of guns, dipshiat. As soon as this guy realized he was being shot at, he would have rabbited out the door, because he obviously was NOT on a suicide mission. And being hit by a bullet through body armor is like being hit with a large hammer. It will knock the crap out of you. It's not like a movie where a little piece of fabric pops off but the shooter just keeps on walking.
