When talking about Ryan or Romney, I think "shmegegge " is the word you're looking for.

Yeah...I was wondering if it was just me being Aspie, but I really read that expression as 'I've been on the trail an ungodly amount of hours, must...have...caffeine...must...stay...awake...'

I'm not sure which swing states Romney's pick of Ryan was supposed to flip. Maybe Wisconsin, but even that's still questionable.

Does Romney not realize what he has to do to win the election?

Yep, by picking Ryan as his running mate Romney has made sure that everyone who was going to vote for him anyway is still going to vote for him. In order to win in November, he needs to reach out to the undecided independents who are not happy with Obama's performance but are not particularly susceptible to the dog whistle approach to American politics. They want substantive programs from their candidate, not vague promises. They want to know that they are not voting for a creature of the interests who tanked the economy and then walked away with tidy bonuses, and they want to be reassured that the new president is neither a heartless ideologue nor a clueless trust fund baby. Ryan does nothing to draw in those voters; quite the contrary. We'll see what happens in November--we'll see what relentless advertising funded by the bottomless pockets of plutocrats can do in the waning days of a campaign--but all things being equal, the Ryan pick is both one more example of Romney's tone deafness and a signal that the extremist wing of the repub Party is still suspicious of his ideological credentials.

Let me remind you how nightmarish Ryan is to Obama Romney. Here's a six-minute take down of Obamacare by Congressman Ryan.

I bet it doesn't include this:

"I'm not a fan of [Romney's health care reform] system," Ryan told C-SPAN in 2010. He argued that government is rationing care in the state and claimed that people are "seeing the system bursting by the seams, they're seeing premium increases, rationing and benefit cuts." He called the system "a fatal conceit" and "unsustainable."

Though Romney has gone to great lengths to distinguish his Massachusetts health care law from Obamacare, Ryan doesn't see the difference. "It's not that dissimilar to Obamacare, and you probably know I'm not a big fan of Obamacare," Ryan said at a breakfast meeting sponsored by the American Spectator in March of 2011.
 
2012-08-12 09:59:11 PM  
If I saw Ryan walking down the street I'd avoid him like the plague. He looks like an over-entitled ideological zealot douchebag who would tell me to fetch him some coffee stat becaues he has to be at the gym in 26 minutes and the church in 52 minutes.

If I saw Romney walking down the street I'd just avoid him to go around his security detail. His energy level must be lower since he's older and he just seems less dangerous. Not a true-believer of anything but his own awesomeness.

So racist Democrats in the South are "New Day Same Republican Dirty Tricks"?


A milestone for the party was September 16, 1964, when Senator Strom Thurmond announced to a statewide television audience that he had switched parties from the Democrats to the Republicans, saying the Democratic "party of our fathers is dead"[5] and had "forsaken the people to become the party of minority groups, power-hungry union leaders, political bosses, and businessmen looking for government contracts and favors".[6] This statement sparked a shift from the solidly Democratic southern United States towards an equally solid Republican party support base within the region.

I love the standards here.

"This is going to be hard and we're going to try to get things better. It won't be easy. We need to hope for change." Idealistic claptrap.

"I will fix everything with the economy and we'll get 3% unemployment if we just do what I say." Realistic policy.

Better than the traditional Icelandic dish of rotting shark in lye, which smells so nasty you have to build a special house to eat it in.

Good lord that stuff is diabolical. I was working in R'vik one Christmas season and my hotel had that stuff on the buffet. Smelled like a mortuary during a July power failure. FFS, how do you even conceive of that without puking, let alone eat it?


It is amazing what you will eat when it's the end of winter and the only food that is left is some rotten shark that had been soaked in lye. Now, why people eat it when there are other options is another matter altogether.

A. "Budget." Without. Any. Numbers. On. It.

What are you talking about? I'm sure the comments are filled with subtle, nuanced points about how to fix the econ--

"If Obama had stuck to Muslim financial principles, this country would be much better off. If he stuck to Muslim moral principles, he would not be pushing PP or the contraception mandate.

If Obama stuck to Muslim principles in his personal life, his wife would not be seen in a sleeveless shirt or dress, and he would not be eating things like Coney Island hot dogs or BBQ ribs. I don't have a problem with that, mind you.

Obama may have a fuzzy affection for Islam as many progressives do, but our choice here is between a Mormon paired with a Catholic and a pair of secular humanist liberals with a dash of Black 'Liberation' Theology thrown in."

O my God!

He's not a troll or a froll, he's an admitted paid rabble rouser, and gets a dollar every time someone responds to him. And if he doesn't believe the crap he spews, then neither does Limbonehead.

I don't actually hate many people, but 10lbs is now on my short list and his confession to being paid is right next to the shell casings hitting the floor and approving the death of Norwegian students at a youth camp.
