What is that NDGT macro all about? I suspect is it feigned concern over the sarcastically-termed "badass"-ness, but from whence did it come?

// also, wasn't Romney the one saying that campaigning during the other convention was "degrading"?
// or is that only for Blah Presidents who campaign against Romney?

So am I, and so is the country--by a helluva lot. The Republicans are playing with fire--by inviting comparisons to the end of the Bush presidency. Serious shiat was on the verge of going down.

The nice thing about that question is that I can honestly answer "Yes."

Since 2008, I've had a 30+% pay increase, overall tax reduction, adopted a child for no cost aside from medical expenses thanks to the adoption tax credit, reduced household debt by over 10 grand, seen my side business grow in revenue from by over 1000% (yes, revenue has gone up by a factor of ten), and being able to actually take family vacations every year.

Now, a large part of that is due to my own hard work and diligence, but the answer is still yes.

Meanwhile, at the end of Bush's term, my company was laying people off, raises were out, pay cuts were happening, benefits were being suspended, and health care costs nearly crippled my finances.

Republicans are so used to believing the last thing they heard they just can't conceive of this plan not working.

Someone should put on a Mitt Romeny mask and tell them it won't work, then watch them shrug their shoulders, pack up and leave.

If you blame Obama's failure on GOP obstruction, you should know that the GOP will probably gain strength in both houses of Congress this year. So if Obama wins, it will mean even harder Obama failure, even more Obama excuses and you will be even worse off four years from now.

I won't put words in your mouth, but that sounds like you are insinuating the Republicans are unwilling to work with Obama on anything and they will continue to put party before country for another four years. But instead of taking responsibility for your party in both houses, you blame Obama.

did I understand you correctly?

Given the choice between four more years of deadlock, heightened partisan tensions and rhetoric, economic hostage-taking, political footballs being made of any governmental action no matter how trivial, petty poutrage, no actual budgets being passed, and general incompetence that leads to a slow, stilted decline that leads to a point of no return and eventual complete sociopolitical and economic collapse...

...or Republicans having undeterred and unchallenged political power for 2-4 years...

...I'll still take Obama, thanks.

Neither am I, but mostly it's because I finished grad school last year. Somehow I managed to be worse off than being a grad student.

Also, Congress sucks. When they prioritize party victories over actual success, there's going to be a problem. I can only hope that the GOP loses a lot of seats just so they realize that not compromising on anything will get them nowhere.

Il Douchey:

I also like that how this insinuates the Republicans will just start bringing up bills for jobs and debt reduction. Okay guys, time to get to work. Like they will just start farting rainbows all over America. And that their goals will remotely line up with the citizens goals.

Deregulate everything!
 
2012-09-04 02:24:55 PM
busy chillin': did I understand you correctly?

Not exactly. I'm saying that if opposition is your excuse for why Obama failed in his first term, he will only fail worse if he gets a second term. So rather than quibble over why it's not working, let's just concede that it's not working so we can turn the page.
