All I know is that my 401k tanked during the second term of GW but this year alon I have made almost 10% on my investments (which isn't great compared to professionals) but that's a damn site better than what it did under George the Lesser. Had we not done anything about the economy, I have no doubt that it would have gone down farther, possibly losing all value. I'll stick with Obama/Biden over Romney/Ryan even though there are a lot of things that I disagree with him on.

Yeah, "I got mine biatch". Suck it GOP loving shills
 
2012-08-17 07:15:28 AM
One of the two reasons he gave for requesting the money was that it would "create jobs."

But I thought you said government stimulus doesn't work, Mr. Lyan?

Paul Ryan is Ronald Reagan reincarnated! He's the intellectual leader of the Republican Party and the architect of the best budget in 100 years!

Lets make him VP, which is a nothing position in our system. Don't worry, Ryan won't be doing anything!

Meh. Doesn't matter.

Republican voters don't care about accuracy, or truth, or reality even. They care about ideology.

Dozens of Republicans made the same false claims in public, but said the opposite in private. They KNOW that stimulus works, and lie about it.

So no poll bump for Romney, and Ryan is going to be ruined after this.

hubiestubert: At some point, these cats have got to realize that records ARE actually kept.

Romney seems to have difficulty in understanding that words aren't just deleted when he can't see them any longer. What is astounding is that these folks have convinced themselves that everyone has goldfish-like memories, and to be fair, there are some in the media who seem bound and determined to prove exactly that--and to be fairer, they are paid to keep their memories somewhat fluid when it comes to inconvenient facts--and Ryan appears to be infected with the same malady...

In the end, it shows a disrespect for their electorate, and the people that they want to represent. Or rather, that they say that they want to represent. The interests that they actually represent do have keen memories, but at this point, they have to bring out the bread and circuses to at least appear like they have more interests at heart...


THIS.

Personally, I believe that Romney/Ryan aren't worried about their "inconsistencies" because they know that FOX News will never bring this up. Stupid premise though. The kind of voter that they need to attract doesn't just watch FOX News. However, I will say that FOX News has driven their base so cuckoo that these people are actually dangerous. The changes that have taken place in most people's lives have nothing to do with Obama, however, faithful FOX viewers have become so indoctrinated with "Obama, the secret Kenyan Muslim Socialist Man" that they have spent their last couple of years raising their blood pressure over nonexistent propaganda. It is really sad. And scary.

You have to be a moron to think the bag of shiat Obama was handed could be fixed in four years. When he was elected, we were in two wars and the economy was free-falling into the shiatter. We were losing 600k jobs per month. Now we're out of Iraq and on a timeline to leave Afghanistan. Unemployment is down. We are gaining back jobs. Things are better.

Which is why I hope he's re-elected. Think of what he could accomplish with a neutered and humiliated Republican party.

MeinRS6: Since the VP doesn't do anything in our system, I'm not sure how much confidence you need to have in him in the first place.


Because there's no way the VP could, you know, become president on any given day.

Besides, the VP is in charge of the senate. I know this because your last VP candidate said so.

Q: Brandon Garcia wants to know, "What does the Vice President do?"

PALIN: That's something that Piper would ask me! ... [T]hey're in charge of the U.S. Senate so if they want to they can really get in there with the senators and make a lot of good policy changes that will make life better for Brandon and his family and his classroom.

"If Congressman Ryan is asked to help a Wisconsin entity applying for existing Federal grant funds, he does not believe flawed policy should get in the way of doing his job and providing a legitimate constituent service to his employers," the spokesman told the Milwaukee (Wisc.) Journal Sentinel.

LOLLLLLLL

What, you think red states aren't going to be allowed to elect their senetors and representatives? It is delusional to think the republicans will do anything other than recoil even more violently from civilization.

"But Fox News says we're in the worst economy since FDR!"

Anytime I try to explain how things are getting better since Obama came into office, and inherited all the debt Bush II created (the majority of the deficit 'created' under Obama was from Bush's last budget, that greatly increased spending with no way to pay for it) to my Conservative coworkers and family, they always pull out some propaganda they heard from Rush or Fox News, which is complete bull. Show them facts, and they try to change the subject back to GOP talking points, or worse yet, go full Derp and start blathering about how he isn't really President anyway.

For example, one coworker of mine has made it his life's goal to make me a Republican. While talking one day about how Obama is the absolute worst President ever, and has destroyed our economy, I stopped him and asked a simple question: "Are you better off than you were four years ago?"

He looked shocked, as we both knew this was an old Republican slogan, and he also knew I knew the answer to that question. Of course he was. He had gone from working as a Federal Corrections Officer to doing Corporate Security at a major Healthcare corporation, and while his income was not much more than before, his benefits were much better. He was putting all of his kids through private school, owns his own home, his wife doesn't have to work to make ends meet, and just bought a new truck for himself.

Nevertheless, this guy tries to tell me he was barely getting by now (not true), had worse healthcare (not true), and it was all Obama's fault! I just shook my head, and he left the room. On the upside, he hasn't tried to convert me to Derpism since that exchange.

Christ, what an imbecile. I'm thinking McCain didn't want to be President any more than Romney does. The GOP is much better suited to being obstructionists in the senate and chronic whiners until 2016.

Lol thats your best defence of him? Never mind he is a lying shiathead and a moron, there's an 80% change he wont have the keys?


FTFY

I'm completely flummoxed at this point with the Republicans. Ryan is radioactive in Florida. I know it, you know it, the Republicans know it. But they will never allow intellectual honesty to enter into their minds. Never. They will whistle past the graveyard all day and pretend this was not a shiatty pick just to bolster their team. Pathetic.

Per FiveThirtyEight, which is the only poller that seems to be ever accurate. They are predicting Obama has a 68.7% chance of winning.

SpectroBoy: You know how I know you don't understand this meme?!??


They don't get the "b-b-b-b-ut Clinton" meme either. They use it every time someone mentions Bush, even if what the person is talking about is an actual thing Bush did that is still occurring today or a platform Bush tried being pursued by a current candidate.

I'd say they're intentionally trying to dilute the memes to pointless by constantly using them entirely out of context, but I don't think I can give them enough credit to think that up on their own.

Seems like maybe Ryan was put on the ticket to distract us from looking deeper into Romney's finances and tax returns. What is he hiding?

I'm curious to when someone is going to roll out "Ryan wants to normalize relations with Cuba" adds.

Note: I actually agree with that idea, the embargo is stupid, etc. But from a political standpoint, that will lose you votes in Florida.
