You sound butthurt, subby.

Remember three weeks ago when the Republicans considered the plausible deniability between a SuperPAC and the candidate they're supporting a good thing?

THIS IS AN OUTRAGE!!11!!!

It's only bad when it works against them.

Kind of like freedom of religion.

Sgt Schultz? I know nothing! Is that what subby was going for?

Are they talking about that ad where the woman would have been saved by Obamneycare?
 
2012-08-13 12:42:13 PM
Did you make that headline up all by yourself, subby, or did your mommy help you?
 
2012-08-13 12:49:21 PM
So, let's put some big powerful laws in place to prevent communication with massive penalties for coordinating with a campaign.

Sounds good, right Subby? Come on, let's get an agreement on this.

Is that the ad that talks about how unregulated capitalism such as the kind practiced by Mitt Romney leads to the misery and early death of some vulnerable members of our society?

It's the kind of add that Republicans have been ruining for years, so I can see how she would be confused.

There is very little Democrats seem to know.
They are clueless.

That's what that factory worker gets for knowingly working in business that is subject to business people like Mitt Romney.
 
2012-08-13 01:32:47 PM
Funny how the GOP and GOP friendly SuperPACs are raising more money but can't match the effectiveness that DNC and DNC friendly SuperPACs have.

Maybe because they lack any talking point that is not pants on fire retarded.

that would all be well and good but they coordinate all the time. the FEC turns a blind eye to it too. Like when Romney, Rove and the rest of the Superpac people all had the big confab behind closed doors last week. Do you really think they were discussing their golf games?

Is the "independent" PAC with the attack ad about Romney killing the guy's wife with the guy wearing the same clothes and sitting at the same table (indicating a lack of choices in wardrobe or both were shot the same day) as the ad in an actual Obama campaign commercial?
 
2012-08-13 01:34:37 PM
Maybe she's having a hard time believing that democrats are capable of being as aggressive as republicans. I know it threw me for a loop.

I think subby would prefer a constitutional amendment eliminating the outside money altogether.

Right, subby? Since you are so concerned about its influence?

No, I don't think they play golf that much. They may have been discussing 0bama's 100+ rounds of golf.
 
2012-08-13 01:37:16 PM
So let's see... Obama campaign does not coordinate with the SuperPAC, and somehow this is bad? It's exactly how the law is written, the candidate and the SuperPac can't coordinate their efforts, but obviously the candidate is going to know that the SuperPac exists, and what its affiliation is.

As someone mentioned upthread, anyone remember all of the times that the GOP has used this same defense tactic?

Well, what kind of penalty is there for coordinating? A fine? Public condemnation? I'm pretty sure Obama and Romney can't be disqualified.

It's nothing compared to Dubya's vacation.

Calls to several Presidential libraries reveal that President Obama's predecessor, George W. Bush, was on vacation more - 1,020 days - than any U.S. President since Herbert Hoover and possibly more than any other President in history.

At 1,020 days, Bush was close to being on vacation more days than President John F. Kennedy's total days in office (1,036).

President Obama has been on vacation 78 days from 2009 to 2011. At the three year mark into their first terms, George W. Bush spent 180 days at his ranch in Crawford, Texas...

She would have been covered if they lived in Massachusetts under Romneycare. Oh...

2012-08-13 01:46:20 PM
So, they still can't take a fraction of what they dish out? Good to know.

Considering how often they talk about liberals as being professional victims, they sure spend most of their time on the farking cross,.
 
2012-08-13 01:47:55 PM
Are they suggesting that she's somehow required to be knowledgeable about every superPAC in existence? Because after reading the article, that seems to be the essence of their complaint.
 
2012-08-13 01:49:14 PM
I hope the Supreme Court is paying close attention to what Citizens United has done to this election and the epidemic of money in politics in general.

It's absurd that she would so flippantly say something so obviously false.

It's one thing to (presumably) state that the DNC does not coordinate the actions of this SuperPAC. It is entirely another to say she has no idea what their political affiliation is. WE know the answer to that, and we aren't the farking Democratic Party Chariwoman. The blatant lie just rolled off her tongue way too easily.

I'm comfortable with the DNC and RNC saying they don't control these groups, because, to an extent, they don't.(At least not directly). It is a somewhat true statement to make.

It is something else entirely to say you know nothing about it, and to make the absurd claim that you don't know what the policital affiliations of a SuperPAC founded by a former Obama White House sopkesman. As head of the Democratic party, that's kind of her job.

That was just a bald-faced lie, and she SHOULD be pilloried for it.

It's organic, enviornmentally friendly, and is not tested on animals. She may be a liar, but she's not a hypocrite.

Her strategy is to continue to bait the media into spotlighting the advert. Did she lie? Yes, yes she did. And she is winning.

Why, though? What does it really matter?

You were going off in a whole other thread about how this site needs to focus on actual news that matters or whatever, isn't this whole issue a big ball of "meh?"

Who cares if the DNC chair "knows the political afilliation" of some PAC? Isn't the whole thing just a gigantic non-issue?

A politician, who isn't even running for anything, *lied* about their knowledge of something! Where's my fainting couch?!?!
