Sid_6.7: 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.

bugontherug: MyRandomName: But I can link you to many groups who were loud about drone strikes prior to O taking office.

So link some. Difficulty: if the group is found to have opposed drone strikes post O taking office, you must admit that you are without value as a human being, and then shoot yourself in the head.

Deal?


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.

Since you declined my invitation, you need not shoot yourself in the head. However, it is now established fact of reality that you are without value as a human being. Moreover, this means Obama automatically wins re-election, and all cons can get down on their knees and suck it.

Ralph Smeed was by all accounts a typical Libertarian douchenozzle.

Hated PBS, liberals, the "death tax", etc.

Died at 88 in 2010 but the derp that men do lives on if they leave a sizable chunk of change behind.

Enter "Smeed Foundation member and former state lawmaker Maurice Clements".

Has a massive brain fart one day that is made real when he arranges to have a pants-on-head retarded billboard comparing Obama to the Aurora CO shooter erected in the heart of tater country.

A move so dickish and wrong that even RW Idahoans call the guy out for being a wrong-headed weasel.

The trolls can't even find an excuse for it.

They're reduced to trying to deflect to the ATF thing or claim that "Oh yeah, Liberals did it first".

blastoh: So, you are.... 5? maybe 6? What is it with conservatives that everytime they are called out for doing something stupid, instead of trying to rationally explain their actions, they instead reply with "something something something liberals something?"

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.

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.

Also, that self-described liberals/progressives stopped caring, revealing themselves to actually be mere partisans.


God, you're right. There aren't any progressive groups or officials calling for the immediate cease of our involvement in killing poor brown people. I wish they'd start. It was terrible the way they all proclaimed it was fine a soon as the democrat was elected. That was a reprehensible thing to do.

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.

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.

Not that I'm an advocate for the opposite, but in the very first thread on the shooting, a couple farkers said it was a popular place for military folks - even one or two of the folks that got killed were military. So 'untrained' is probably the wrong adjective.


How did that work out for them? Did they use their military training to take down the shooter? Please tell me it ended well...

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.
