Gergesa: I am curious to know what the republican party will look like in 2016. Right now they seem like they are gripped in hysteria and reliving the cold war and civil rights. In 2016 will they manage to look even more out of touch?


If Obama wins there will a huge backlash of derp. Remember the last time he won? Yeah, we ended up with the Tea Party. And they're going to be even angrier this time. There's going to be a tidal wave of whaargarbl, and will be up to the GOP to reign it in. Otherwise, the 2016 primary could be an even bigger clown show than this time around.

Well, one redeeming quality is that she brought us these gems.

Mugato: Cheney did more to fark up this country than even the moronic Palin could have accomplished.


Yeah, well at least Mr. Cheney is intelligent, competent, and acts in a logically consistent manner according to his perception of the world.

President Sarah Palin would nuke Mecca without a second thought, if a coalition of religious leaders told her that it was the will of Jesus.
 
2012-07-29 01:46:25 PM  
fark Dick Cheney. Sarah Palin was only a mistake because they lost. That's all these assholes care about. He damn sure wasn't saying she was a mistake at the time and encouraging people to vote Obama. Party before country, always.

HeartBurnKid: Snowflake Tubbybottom: He didn't have to lie since Obama had little experience but it was obvious he was more afraid of being branded racist if he challenged him more vigorously.

So, what kind of challenges could he have made more vigorously? IIRC, he was all over Obama's inexperience and naivete (even called Obama's statement that he'd send forces into Pakistan to take down OBL if the opportunity presented itself "dangerously naive" -- oh, wait), so what else would you have seen him do?


Been hearing this lately as well, still confused. Usually tied to claims that Obama only got to his level due to affirmative action. I think they're upset that McCain didn't say that.

Most credible sites have it something like 332 Obama and 206 Romney right now. That's electoral votes. By 2016 the current Republican party will be #3 in most of the populous states and sinking fast, not really worth notice. White, old and rich is not the key to electoral survival.

The way Fox News is going, they've got people ready to yell "To arms! To arms!" if Obama wins. There are a lot of tea partiers who have been convinced Obama wants to come for their guns are are expecting a civil war to start if he gets re-elected. I put most of the blame for this mentality squarely at the feet of Fox News. If they can't reign in the rhetoric during/after the election, things could honestly become dangerous.
 
2012-07-29 01:52:51 PM  
Thanks, Dick. Everyone else (except McCain) admitted that the day after the election.

basemetal: Meh, after the last eight years of GWB, the dems could have run a blue goose and won that election.


And instead they nominated the guy that would lead to an historic loss of house seats in the off-year election...so much so that the GOP took control of the House of Representatives.

You Dems keep up with teh Fartbongo and Igor ticket, and I'll enjoy my filibuster-proof senate and GOP house in 2014. Then in 2016 well elect a GOP president, have a GOP house, a filibuster-proof GOP senate, and 8 of 9 on the supreme court in 2018.

I really DO have hope for Fartbongo. Go Fartbongo go.
 
2012-07-29 01:55:45 PM

Opiate of the Lasses: fark Dick Cheney. Sarah Palin was only a mistake because they lost. That's all these assholes care about. He damn sure wasn't saying she was a mistake at the time and encouraging people to vote Obama. Party before country, always.


Not to mention the only use Cheney has to the party nowadays is to say the shiat nobody else with a future wants to say. He's lucky he's not being treated like Dubya where he simply does not exist anymore.

But all of this is just a sad attempt to pander to moderates. It's the typical Republican abusive boyfriend tactic: yeah, this time they've changed, they've learned their lesson, and will do the same thing just went you take them back. The fact they chose Cheney is because nobody will farking believe it.
 
2012-07-29 02:07:57 PM  
I think I've heard of this "Palin". Isn't she some sort of comical footnote of history?
 
2012-07-29 02:08:41 PM  
You know what was also a mistake?

Invading Iraq

Very brave of Cheney to come out against Palin as VP four years after the fact. Maybe in four years he'll criticize Romney's failed presidential bid.

Snowflake Tubbybottom: cameroncrazy1984: Snowflake Tubbybottom: Completely moot since McCain didn't have the balls to actually take on Obama to begin with

What do you mean by "actually take on Obama"? Lie early and often about him?

He didn't have to lie since Obama had little experience but it was obvious he was more afraid of being branded racist if he challenged him more vigorously. To his credit, he was right that at least the allegations would fly.

2008 was the somewhat dull, moderate elder statesman vs. the hype of personality with no experience. I was surprised the margin of victory wasn't larger.


Yes the 100 year war moderate.

How much you want to bet there is a google search of your posts talking about how McCain was going to destroy Obama with statisticals and such as.

So you farking retards finally realized four or eight years under Obama isn't the end of the world? I don't buy it. That would require foresight, rationality and dropping the urge to cry every time things don't go your way. How could your pussy party even survive without every thing that happens being the death knell of this country as we know it. That's your whole platform. The party that cried wolf wasted their fear when normal people kept waking up day after day and realized none of these had happened and began laughing at how ridiculous you are.

Kumana Wanalaia: Snowflake Tubbybottom: cameroncrazy1984: Snowflake Tubbybottom: Completely moot since McCain didn't have the balls to actually take on Obama to begin with

So it takes more balls to "take on Obama" than to survive being a POW?

Interesting. How does this fit in with the idea that Obama is a weak, ineffectual empty suit?


it takes balls to sit around all day eating delicious vietnamese soup and occasionally being poked with pointy bamboo? when you could otherwise be sneaking thru the jungle all day killing brown people and hoping that brown people don't kill you? do people who have no balls just implode under those conditions, or what? maybe we were safer when women weren't allowed to be combatants.

Most of my Republican friends believe Sarah Palin walks on water, on the other hand they believe that George Bush and Dick Cheney never existed.

2012-07-29 02:23:59 PM  

dr_blasto: Cheney was a mistake, too.


Bush doesn't have much reason to regret picking Cheney. There was evidently some tension later on when Cheney was defending people and policies that Bush had finally realized needed to be let go, but what did that amount to? Demoting Cheney from practically co-president to regular vice president?

So much this.

Nobody from W's gang of incompetent scumbags has the right to pass judgment on anyone. What those neocon creeps managed to get away with makes Watergate look like child's play. Just because the American public lost its appetite for prosecution of corruption doesn't change the fact that Cheney and Company deserve to be sitting in prison cells right now.

No fan of Palin by any stretch, but her place in history will be something of a sideshow footnote. Cheney has blood on his hands. There is a difference.

I'm not one to defend Mitt, but that's just stupid. Mitt began running for office state and national office in 1994 and was governor of Massachusetts for four years. Palin was mayor of a city with 7,000 people and quit being the mayor of Alaska (with a population 6 times smaller than Mass.) after barely 3 years. As far as political experience goes, Rmoney blows her out of the water.
 
2012-07-29 02:53:56 PM  
Not for nothing, but if this is a recent Palin Photo:

then she's wither gone on a crash diet, is suddenly aging very badly, or has something seriously wrong with her (like cancer level wrong-god forbid)
compare to just 4 years ago:

So massuchestes counts as dog years or something?

Romney has only 4 years of any political office, Palin had much more. Yes they were smaller offices but it's still more political experience like I said.

Romney only has had 4 years in one position he is one of the least experienced person running for president in modern history.

Being the governor of a state with one of the top 10 metros in the nation gives you more political experience than being the governor of the 3 least populous state in the nation... in the same way Rudy Guiliani would have gained more political experience as the mayor of NYC than, oh, let's say Becky Ames, mayor of Beaumont, TX.

And, yes, running for political office counts as political experience. You're focused on world events, making plans, formulating stances, "playing politics", e.t.c. It's not the BEST experience, sure, but at least you can reasonably expect to learn why North and South Korea are different countries in the process.

Now, this isn't to say Mitt is greatly experienced. He isn't. Not by a long shot. He's less experienced, in my opinion, than President Obama was when he was elected, and that was the major attack point throughout the campaign. Rmoney is, however, a sight better choice than Sarah Palin if all you're focusing on is experience.

GAT_00: St_Francis_P: Soni: no, McCain was the mistake... Palin was the only thing that kept that doddering old fool in the race.

I work with a bunch of old engineers, and most are Republicans. They were all about McCain, but Palin scared them a lot. I think the election would have been much closer if Palin hadn't been in the mix.

Palin is the single thing that got my father to vote for Obama.


If only there had been some way for the GOP to test the waters beforehand, perhaps through some kind of random-sampling public opinion survey.

Were the Republicans forced to choose McCain as their nominee to run against Obama?
