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.

So if not for this billboard Obama would have had a shot at Idaho? This story deserves about fifteen minutes of attention but once again, what difference does it make in the larger scheme of things? Idaho is one of those states that will go for Romney even if it comes out that he's providing aborted fetuses for his wife to suck the stem cells out of and his plans to take the oath of office on the Book of Mormon (incidentally...).

We get it, repubs. You've nailed down the vote of every racist, 1 percenter and credulous dolt in the country. Fortunately for the rest of us, that is not enough to win you the presidency. How will you reach out to the ten percent of the country that is repelled by blatant racism, unhappy with Obama's performance but unconvinced by your vague assurances that Romney's experience as a vulture capitalist will turn the country around? So far I've seen a great deal of pandering--unnecessary pandering, ultimately counterproductive pandering--to your base but nothing at all substantive to support your claims of a superior economic program. Ironically, Romney could simply tell the truth: "When I am elected I will call all my obscenely wealthy friends and tell them to start hiring again--just as I asked them to stop hiring in order to undercut Obama's economic recovery-- and they will do so, instantly reversing the decline in the economy."

That would work.

That billboard is tasteless and inappropriate, but the message is correct. The problem is, the same billboard could be used for essentially EVERY president we've ever had, just by changing the names.

US foreign policy isn't too concerned with the deaths of non-American people. We, as a country, simply don't care if foreigners die, unless they are celebrities.

I think the US isn't alone in this, but since we have our fingers in everybody's business, it makes us look more heartless than average.

Do you just have no explaination for you actions or beleif systems? Is everything you do and beleive based off of liberals?
A clarification would be great here.

I observed how liberals behaved, the things they said, and the sort of images they liked to invoke while Bush was in office. I continue to watch how they behave even today. This is precisely the sort of thing liberals have engaged in since they lost in 2000 and it hasn't slowed down even slightly since then. As I said when Obama was inaugurated, I want every liberal to look back at how they've behaved over the last 8 years and think long and hard about it... Because that was the level we sunk to, and now you can expect no better from your opponents.

Of course, we've listened to the screeching about racism, or various other stupid things because admitting that Republicans dislike Obama for political reasons would mean having to admit that all that vitriol spewed by liberals while Bush was in office was also for political reasons. No more, no less. That's all it's ever been and ever will be about.

If this sort of thing bothers you, and it should, then liberals can start by cleaning themselves up because... You're the ones that brought us down here.

Oh, the poor poor innocent precious pre-born fetuses!

Are those the "children" you really mean?


State Rep. Cynthia Davis (R-MO) on June 22, 2009, provided several "commentaries" to a press release from the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services on a summer food program.
The program provides "food during the summer for thousands of low-income Missouri children who rely on the school cafeteria for free or reduced-price meals during the regular school year."
Davis, who serves as the chairwoman of the Missouri House Special Standing Committee on Children and Families, questioned whether the program is "warranted," and inquired --

Who's buying dinner? Who is getting paid to serve the meal? Churches and other non-profits can do this at no cost to the taxpayer if it is warranted.... Anyone under 18 can be eligible? Can't they get a job during the summer by the time they are 16? Hunger can be a positive motivator.

Republicans Choose Weapons for Foreigners Over Feeding Hungry American Children
Posted on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 by Doug Marquardt

Sounds hyperbolic, but it's true. The Ryan budget that House Republicans passed last week cuts billions from vital social programs, including food aid for poor, American children. But the House panel that controls military spending recommended nearly $850 million additional dollars from American taxpayers to build a missile defense shield for Israel.

Oddly, Republicans, who claim that they are not a bunch of klansmen, have selected a cultist from a splinter religious group who claim that black people are Satan's agents and until recently would not allow black people to enter their cultist buildings.

Mitt Romney reminds me of that porker Smegma Whitman who claims to be a "job creator" and is currently off-shoring as many jobs at HP as she can. I'm sure their are a whole bunch of no-teeth trailer-trash republicans who would claim that Romney off-shoring jobs was just a way of creating more jobs here at home.

It has now been more than 15 minutes since I invited you to post links to groups which opposed drone strikes before Obama took office, and no longer opposed them after Obama took office. Not only that, you have since made at least one post. The inference is strong that you can find no such groups.

It should never be used on merely SUSPECTED terrorists, leaders maybe, but even then is iffy due to the collateral damage of killing family when they use it on buildings.


Again, the billboard says thousands. The drone strikes don't add up to that much.

Aside from that, you've linked to a site in pakistan that is guaranteed to give the story an anti-drone-strike slant. They don't know or care whether those targets are legitimate.

Actually water boarding is not an effective way of getting truthful information out of terrorists.

All of the useful information we got out of Khalid Shaikh Mohammed we got by good old fashioned trickery. When the CIA took over and started waterboarding him, he stopped giving us information, even though they waterboarded him 183 times.

So, I want to understand the logic of someone who says, "Well, we waterboarded him 182 times, and he didn't give us the information we wanted. But maybe if we keep trying . . . "

Okay, let's think for a second, shall we?

The terrorists are in Pakistan, or some other country, not always Afghanistan. You want us to go into Pakistan with troops, to capture the terrorists, not kill them with drones, and water board them, to get more information about terrorists.

Now, do you understand, no one, not Bush, not McCain and not Romney have ever said they would send troops into Pakistan or any other country to get terrorists? In fact, all three criticized Obama for saying he would send troops into Pakistan to get Osama, all three characterized it as invading an ally. Under Bush, we had a chance to do just what you are suggesting with Al Zawahri, the number 2 man in AQ, and the Bush administration refused to do it. Only Obama has suggested and actually implemented sending troops into another country to get terror suspects, in bagged Osama as a result. Would have been nice to get him alive, but we did get his computers, so there is that.

Now, Romney, has gone on record supporting the drone strikes, even against U.S. citizens. He supported the Osama operation only after we got him. He has not pledged to do what you said, go after the terrorists and waterboard them if they are found in other countries. Your position is not supported by any candidate running for office, and was not supported by the Bush administration, the last administration in office, and the administration that will be supplying the majority of military and foreign affairs advisers to a Romney administration. Also, the Bush administration quickly abandoned water-boarding, so don't think it will be coming back any time soon.

Bottom-line, you want an administration that offers the best chance of catching terror suspects alive, even if they are in other countries, then Obama is the clear choice.

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.


Good to see a member of the 121st Fighting Keyboardists chiming in.

Didn't do very well in physics class, did you? The force of impact has to be equal to the kick of the firearm. That's how the real world works. Are you actually suggesting that firing a handgun is like being hit with a large hammer? If not, where, pray tell, did the extra force come from?

You're not only ignorant, you're a mind reader too. You know exactly what the shooter would have done. Brilliant! Got any stock tips for me?

Ever see the video of the LA bank shooting? Those gunmen in full body armor sure were running away weren't they? No, they weren't? They were absorbing hits all the while firing back? That's not possible in your world, is it?

Those cops with handguns and cover stood no chance against those guys. It took a sniper with a high power rifle and all the time in the world to take them down. Now factor in a darkened theater, tear gas, no cover and general panic and what do you get? A massacre of even armed people.

Look, if you want to masturbate about how much of stud you would have been with your compact concealed carry in that situation, go right ahead but some things are best kept to ones self.

Seth'n'Spectrum: Brick-House: www.politifake.org

Lots of liberals are alarmed by this.
But answer this question: Now that the strategy has proved so successful, do you think the Republicans would stop doing it?


It's not particularly alarming, actually; it's a policy about what the default consideration for casualties should be in the absence of specific information (which might be a very long time coming in some cases). After all, the strike zones aren't picked at random by monkeys throwing darts at a board; they're based on intelligence regarding militant activity.

In a similar vein, if a run-of-the-mill military target was bombed during a conventional conflict, should all the casualties be considered to be people completely unconnected with the conflict unless it could be specifically shown otherwise for each individual person, or should it be the reverse of that? The former might even be preferable to some people, but I can't think of any countries or eras where something like this was actually put into practice.

Can any of you who thinks a random guy with a gun could have stopped this show me an example where that has happened?

Lets see the North Hollywood shootout the police took out the shooters eventually after 11 officers and seven civilians where injured, this was in broad daylight with many police officers involved.

1986 Miami shootout where eight FBI agents and two suspects got in a shootout, and two agents were killed.


These are only shootouts where the cops were involved, cause cops are armed all the time.

Like how Bush had a 93% approval rating after 9/11? Democrats but partisanship behind them, and gave Bush a chance. Every critique Bush got after 9/11, every drop in approval rating, down to 30% by the time he left office, he earned, honestly, through being a complete fark up.

I also love how you think the Clinton years were some sort of era of "good feelings", with only honest debate and bipartisan cooperation, and not the 9 years of Republican false accusations of murder, drug-dealing, raping, and financial impropriety. Truly, you do your side a credit.

Yeah... you're in a dark, smoky room full of screaming people. You see brief flashes of gunfire between those screaming people. So you take pot shots in the general direction of the muzzle flares, possibly hitting the people running around.

...but the fun really starts when a second Rambo-wannabe decides to shoot back, and sees *two* sets of muzzle flares; yours and those of the first shooter.

Obama's foreign policy has resulted in many deaths, yes. Some were even civilians. And many were American soldiers.

So, what to do? Vote him out and give the Big Chair to Romney?

Romney, the guy who would have doubled down in Iraq? Romney, who would double down in Afghanistan? Romney, the guy who would go all in on Iran? Romney, who seems intent on starting a new Cold War with Russia? Because, if you dislike Obama because his policies have resulted in the deaths of thousands, your alternative is Romney, who is just looking to get a couple bloodbaths started in the Middle-East.

Which is why this particular derp will not be part of the Romney machines attack on Obama. They will never say that Obama has too much blood on his hands, because they want their president to be soaked in blood up to his neck.

Valid argument to make but I'm not sure. He was able to get these guns in Denver with just a simple background check which consisted of nothing more than a speeding ticket. The fact he was a mental nutcase didn't come out to anyone until after the shooting.

I think the fact he purchased thousands of rounds of ammo should've sent a red flag to someone at the online retailer he bought them from.

There needs to be something done in that regard. I mean the government keeps track of how much cold medicine I buy but doesn't keep track of how much ammo I buy?

Mrtraveler01: It's funny that conservatives started to care about killing and maiming children in foreign countries only after a Democrat became President isn't it?


Lord_Baull: So when Bush waged war based on lies killing 4000+ Americans and costing over one trillion dollars, that was alright. But when Obama wages war (continuing the same policies started by Bush) using drones that cost hundreds of billions of dollars less with no loss of American lives, that makes him comparable to a mass shooter.


Dog Welder: Do you remember when all the Republicans were crying about how we weren't doing anything in Libya, and then they complained when we started doing something about Libya, and then they complained about how we weren't doing enough in Libya, and then they complained about how we weren't putting boots on the ground in Libya?

Idaho is one of those states that will go for Romney even if it comes out that he's providing aborted fetuses for his wife to suck the stem cells out of and his plans to take the oath of office on the Book of Mormon (incidentally...).

We get it, repubs. You've nailed down the vote of every racist, 1 percenter and credulous dolt in the country. Fortunately for the rest of us, that is not enough to win you the presidency. How will you reach out to the ten percent of the country that is repelled by blatant racism, unhappy with Obama's performance but unconvinced by your vague assurances that Romney's experience as a vulture capitalist will turn the country around? So far I've seen a great deal of pandering--unnecessary pandering, ultimately counterproductive pandering--to your base but nothing at all substantive to support your claims of a superior economic program. Ironically, Romney could simply tell the truth: "When I am elected I will call all my obscenely wealthy friends and tell them to start hiring again--just as I asked them to stop hiring in order to undercut Obama's economic recovery-- and they will do so, instantly reversing the decline in the economy."

That would work.


well it's obvious that anything that would help the economy would help Obama so they're not going to do anything until they defeat him. they will pass more anti abortion, preaise Jesus ,hate the gay legislation until then and ignore jobs ,jobs ,jobs.

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.

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.

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


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.

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.

"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.
