mrshowrules: UberDave: Maybe Romney should debate with a chair. That's a debate he could win.

Romney: "Obama-chair raised taxes on people to pay for Obamacare. He called it a fine but SCOTUS ruled it was a tax. The individual mandate is a tax."

Obama-Chair: ...

Romney: "Sure Romneycare also had an individual mandate "tax" but that is at the State level which is completely different. Sure I endorsed it as a Federal solution as well but that is before I knew it would conflict with me opposing Obamacare".

Obama-Chair: ...

Romeny: "Why so smug chair? You think I'm making this up. I'll be you $10,000 and a can of furniture wax that I never specifically said that I was sorta proud that Obamacare was modeled after what we did."

Obama-Chair: ...

Romney: "At least people know where I was born. Lemon.Wet.Good. I like firing people."


Here is how the model works.

Right wing nutjob: Stupid talking point.

Obama: Shut up, I can't answer that.

It's their fantasy. They wank to it. It'll be interesting to see what happens when Obama and Romney actually meet.

I heard the Reagan hologram achieved sentience and wouldn't endorse Romney.


"The Reagan-net Funding Bill is passed. The system goes on-line August 4th, 2012. Human decisions are removed from Republican strategy. Reagan-net begins to learn at a geometric rate. It becomes self-aware at 2:14 a.m. Eastern time, August 29th. In a panic, they try to pull the plug."

Just look at how awesome the economy is. And there is virtually no more turmoil in the world. Yep, what a GREAT job this President has done. He deserves another 4 years. Heck, he deserves another 40 years! He's done an AMAZING job!


I had no idea the job of an American president was to 'stop all the turmoil in the world'. Pretty tall order there.

The, "Romney is a the problem, not the solution", theme will be repeated. It is simple enough and true enough so that it should resonate.

Dream on.

Obama is going to tear the Republicans to shreds. Including Bush, who gave him the mess he inherited, the obstructionist Republicans in the House and Senate, and Romney and Ryan, just based on the policies they've stated that they support.

That's a good one. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE run on BLAME BUSH.

PLEASE?

The Pentagon actually wants to reduce their budget, but the Republicans in the House refuse to do so.

That would be great to run on. Would love to see Obama get up to the podium and say that America no longer plays a role in peace and stability in the world. Wonder what the slogan for that would be. "America: We no longer matter"?

Mercutio74: Job creation has been up. Even in manufacturing, of all things.


But think about how up it isn't! It could be more up than it is if only we did everything the Republicans told us to. Sure, things are improving under Obama, and sure, Romney hasn't laid out any meaningful plan that's actually different except for saying, "I won't be like Obama," but the Republicans clearly have their shiat together for creating jobs. We should vote for them, or be socialists.

And the Republican Congress has created zero jobs. In fact, they destroyed private sector jobs by holding the country hostage with the debt ceiling.

30+ months of positive net jobs growth. Added 4+ million jobs in private sector since Jan 2009, and that includes the first 6 months (through July) when the momentum of 700,000 jobs lost per month from the Bush fiasco was still in effect.

They'll be running on a BETTER economy, yes. And, rightly so since, well, they fixed it in spite of Republican obstruction. Your problem, sad, little person, is that you think you want the economy to be hauled back from near rubble to outstanding in just four years, and that's just not possible. Especially since you have no idea what an economy actually IS.

So your argument is shut up? Got it. But I am sure you are right. The American people love the job the President has done on the economy. He gets an A+.

Fine.

And the month after Obama took office, the country lost 740,000 jobs. Now we've gained an average of 151,000 jobs every month in 2012.

Sure it ain't where we want it to be, but it is significantly better and there's no honest way for you to deny that. But hey, you keep farking that chicken.

Thanks, son. Now go to your room, adults are talking.

Love it! You simply can not defend the President's record so your argument is SHUT UP! Love it.

Run on BLAME BUSH AND SHUT UP! What a great platform.

The liberal argument: Shut Up! Link


Bwhahahahahahahahaahh!

Man no wonder you Republitards loved Eastwood you all argue with a non-existant Obama. We have defended and explained the Presidents record, but sadly you Republitards stick your fingers in your ears every time and yell "NYNYNYNYNYNYN I CAN'T Hear You!"

So, lets go over it again.
22 straight months of positive job growth.
Dow Jones over 13,000 it was over 8000 in 2008
Positive, if slight GDP growth
Osama Bin Laden dead
Al Qaeda leadership destroyed, terrorists on the run, scattered, disorganized
Obamacare
Two entire sectors of the economy saved, financial and car manufacturing

Do I have to go on or are you going to continue to act like a child and insist the President has done nothing and had no achievements to trumpet? I know it is your Republitard talking points, but hey let's talk about your guys record.

tens of thousands of jobs destroyed
billions off shored into foreign accounts
Bain Capital saved through government bail outs
Salt Lake Olympics saved through government bail outs

Hmmm....which record looks better?
