The most amusing thing is I now expect Romney to announce he disagrees with the Penn State decision and Obama's endorsement of the violation of due process, as well as "Why is Obama delving into this instead of focusing on jobs!!!"

Will he fall into that trap.

gimmegimme: beta_plus: Wow, I actually mostly agree with Obama. I understand why he can't say "give those arrogant child raping bastards the death penalty!"

I love how the idea of agreeing with the President is so hateful to you that you had to add the qualifier.


Stop covering up for child rapists like Lasaga and Neisworth, take a 4 year death penalty, and all will be forgiven.

See, it's a pretty simple answer to your problems.

thismomentinblackhistory: Bag of Hammers: OK GOP, you're against Gay Marriage but for Child Molestation? WTF?

Wtf does one have to do with the other?


My point exactly

For Romney to profit from this issue would require him to take a position on a hot issue. He doesn't do that. Ever. He literally has no opinion about anything other than tax relief for gazillionaires.

I wouldn't even give you that, because he's back tracked on that one as well!

gimmegimme: Weaver95: great - now the GOP is going to have to take a pro-pedophila stance. as a rule, if Obama is in favor of something, the Republicans are against it. in this case, Obama is against pedo rape, which means the GOP have to be in favor of it.

My friends, the Democrat Party claims to be the party of acceptance and openness, but those on the left would deny you the right to make love to a pre-teen boy in a public shower. Are you going to stand for the government telling you what to do?


A) You are really farking sick, you should get help.

B) That was really farking funny

C) I feel bad for finding it so funny

POSTED BY: SLICK RICK | AUGUST 3, 2012, 1:08 PM 1:08 PM

So, our President is okay with punishment being doled out without due process? He's okay that nothing has been proven, because the court cases are complete? He's okay with a former disgraced FBI director comes to conclusions not backed up by his "evidence"? Isn't he supposed to DEFEND due process?
Penn State did not violate any of the NCAA's rules. They didn't gain a competitive advantage. They didn't violate recruiting rules. This was NOT a football issue. It was a criminal issue. The NCAA had no jurisdiction.
And to take games away back to 1998 is ludicrous. Sandusky was NOT charged in that incident. The police (both University Park & State College) and the Centre County DA's office determined that no crime had been committed. Sandusky's statement & the boy's statement matched. If NO crime was committed, then why is Penn State being punished?


I suppose IHBT, but wow. I can't believe how they want to keep talking about this and keep trying to convince someone that Penn State go jobbed. Learn something from your Lancaster Co brethren: STOP TALKING ABOUT THIS.
 
2012-08-03 06:28:29 PM

I really didn't have an opinion about Penn State at all before this and now I wish they had closed the school for good and I hope billion dollar judgements burn it down and salt the earth. It's obvious that the culture of moral corruption there is rooted in too deep to fix. The whole "We Are Penn State" thing reminds me of nothing else but "Hail Hydra!"

Gwendolyn: Dead for Tax Reasons: that part of the state isn't going to vote for him anyway. he just has to suck up to Pitt, Penn and the other schools in the cities

Most of the students at Penn State are from Philadelphia or Pittsburgh and the surrounding suburbs. There are 40,000+ kids there and that kind of number does not exclusively come from central PA. We used to have a annual touch football game between the Philly and Pittsburgh kids to decide if soft drinks would be called soda or pop for the year. PSU also has about 500,000 alumni.

While I don't think Obama saying this will hurt his chances (I wouldn't not vote for him as an alumni and sure as hell wouldn't vote for Rick Santorum) it's wrong of confuse the local central PAers as exclusively alumni. Most are from the more populated areas of the state.


And then there's the fact that the only people truly, truly disagreeing with Obama on anything he actually said are the ones that need help. And unlike what you hear on FARK, those scary dumbasses are few and far between. There are far more people who would gladly pay to fly a banner promising vigilante action if a statue isn't torn down (y'know, for the children) than there are people that are actually defending child rape in this situation.

Yeah, not thinking a lot of PA voters are going to vehemently disagree with the President's assertion that the prevention of child rape probably needs to be prioritized over college sports a little bit. Not really a controversial sound-bite he's got going there.

//Well, I guess he's probably lost the NAMBLA vote, but that's about it.

If anyone is against Obama's quote, I would ask them why they are pro-pedophile?

He's just daring the Republicans to oppose it.

Given how what Penn State did was a universally horrible thing, both sides of the political spectrum should agree that it was in fact bad.

Somehow, Obama's backing of the sanctions will be seen as a bad thing.

So Obama ISN'T responsible for the pederasts at Pedo State. I'll accept your apology as a retraction.
 
2012-08-03 07:16:51 PM
Gender issue. Obama's strength is with female voters, so stick with a pro-family stance.

Romney's strength is with white men, and nearly all of the pro-Paterno crowd are white guys.

Its mere convenience that the politics also align for Obama with whats morally right, so he might as well speak out. When/if they don't, a smart pol knows to STFU.

Unlike, say, Santorum.
 
2012-08-03 07:17:58 PM
Hey, GOP -- Obama said today that suicide should not be considered a personal right.

Honest-to-god.

Not subby, but please point out where he's white-knighting either of them. And no, his opinion that Obama saying that the punishments to PSU so far are justified will lose him the state of Pennsylvania doesn't count.

my complaint about this scandal is, what about every athlete and every supporter for all the teams that played for those years... you just wiped their achievement as well and they were innocent/unknowing of it... better we sacrifice all the innocent players to get that one guilty guy...

Siding with child molesters is what Santorum did...

It's a safe bet that anything Santorum is doing, the opposite is the proper, decent, and moral course.

Aww, poor 35-year-old ex-college-football players. Having to live with the knowledge that their sportsball victories are erased from the NCAA record book, and only still exist in the form of newspaper stories and videotapes and the public conscience!

Truly a worse fate than being sodomized by an elderly assistant coach.

Really?

First of all, what did "every supporter for all those teams" achieve? Yeah, you watched some football games and presumably had some good times doing so. Not exactly an achivement, but good for you. Do you think the NCAA is going to send some guys over with a Men In Black flashy thing to erase those memories?

And for the pople who actually did play, do you think they are going to lose their degrees they earned on football scholarships? Will they lose their jobs now? I don't think so.
