I like how the GOP calls differing policy "anger and hate" but calls actual anger and hate exercising their free speech.

In law school we were taught when the facts are on your side but the law isn't you argue facts, when the facts aren't on your side but the law is you argue the law, when neither is on your side you argue equity and how it's basically an unfair situation. Romney is in this third position; he neither has facts on his side nor is he a candidate with substantive ideals. His only option is to argue how unfair everyone is being towards him.

BravadoGT: What's Obama going to do? Run on his record?

[images.sodahead.com image 262x350]


Yeah I mean it is not like he got us out of Iraq, destroy Al Queda, Killed Osama Bin Laden, saved an entire manufacturing sector of the US economy, added jobs to the economy for the last 27 months, reduced the deficit, held the US government to the lowest growth rate in 50 years, brought the Iranians to their knees, restored US foreign relations and prestige, achieved health care reform, kept interest rates low, and added 5000 points to the DOW. I mean really what has he accomplished?

I'll vote for his record. This talking point is stupid, it's a loaded statement assuming his record is bad. If his actual record was 10% as bad as Republicans are trying to pretend it is, you'd probably have a point. While not perfect, Obama's first term will historically be considered a successful one by anyone with half a brain considering the context of what he was dealing with.

Cletus C.: Satanic_Hamster: MyRandomName: Ennuipoet: I like how the GOP calls differing policy "anger and hate" but calls actual anger and hate exercising their free speech.

I wasn't aware that the romney cancer machine was policy. Also unware that calling someone a felon without proof was policy. Etc.

75% of Obama's ads are personal attacks, not policy.

You do realize that Romney has said that the commercial is not only correct but the woman would have lived if she had Romney/Obamacare, right.

You do realize you lied.

"If people had been in Massachusetts, under Governor Romney's health care plan, they would have had health care. There are a lot of people losing their jobs and losing their health care in President Obama's economy." - Romney press secretary Andrea Saul

1. Romney didn't say it, his press secretary did
2. Never said the commercial was correct. Said Romney was long gone from Bain and running the Salt Lake City Olympics when the guy was laid off. The wife had her own health plan at the time and died two years later.
3. Said she would have had coverage under Romneycare, not that the plan would have magically cured her cancer.


This kind of spin could change the rotation of the Earth.

I love how the right is trying to paint Chicago as some dilapidated sh*thole. Look, if Chicago is the symbol of liberalism, and Ohio is the symbol of conservatism, sorry...conservatism is getting its ass handed to it.

I realize that Romney doesn't have much hope of carrying Illinois...but is this "let's paint Chicago as Sodom/Gomorrah" really a good idea? Do they not realize that Chicago happens to be a part of America too? Obviously politicians have been exploiting the divisions between City and Country forever - but I feel like this is the first time anyone running for office has blatantly tried to turn anyone against a specific place. Hell, even Sarah Palin had the sense to make a vague "real America" comment rather than literally saying "I love being out here, as opposed to New York, which is infested with Jews, queers, and gangbangers."

"His campaign and his surrogates have made wild and reckless accusations that disgrace the office of the presidency," Romney said.

Mr "Obama's says 'You Didn't Build That'" said that?

Mr "Obama wants to stop military people from voting" said that?

Wild and reckless accusations are 99% of the Romney campaign.

Romney accused Obama of pushing Republicans and Democrats "as far apart as they can go" and he accused Obama of waging an even more divisive campaign by "dividing us all in groups."

How does the GOP unity trick work again there, Mittens?

Women go back in the kitchen and start making sammiches, gays get put back in closet after having their heads forcibly shaved, Muslims get deported on principle and White Privilege becomes the latest Constitutional amendment?

/A guess.

"His campaign strategy is to smash America apart and then cobble together 51 percent of the pieces"

A Republican said this.

Romney lashed out at Obama, describing him as "intellectually exhausted, out of ideas and out of energy."

After Romney literally had exhaustion and cancelled his Florida event?!

Sorry Mittie-Titty, that was Obama's predecessor, you know, the guy who was apparently confused about the words 'uniter' and 'divider'...

After him came the 'Party of No', they actually stated that they wanted to be known for what they were against, rather than what they were for, and many on that Party have flat out admitted that they blocked stuff specifically because it was proposed or supported by Democrats, most notable Obama, EVEN IF IT WAS BASED ON POSITIONS THEY HAD SUPPORTED A MONTH BEFORE!!!

THAT is what 'dividing' is all about, you dumb farking moron. Jesus, someone needs to stick you back in the closet until the modified 'Talking Points' update is released. Quit going with this Alpha Release shiat, it's not doing you a lick of good.

You just totally described Obama with his "tax the 1%" / Romney Hood argument. Kudos.


As opposed to the Romney/Ryan plan to tax the 1% at 0.82%.

Well, the DJIA isn't rated by dollars, for one thing. It's just points. (Pedant mode...off! BEEEOoooooo...) Also, even though under Obama we've added about 4M *private sector* jobs, we've also shed a lot of government jobs. Part of the reason why unemployment is still pretty high.

Ironic, huh? Cut government spending, lose jobs, unemployment stays high.
