Weaver95: The election of 2008 may have been "historic," but it wasn't a contest. The outcome was as sure as a 90% hard-left political machine could make it. Abe Lincoln come back from the dead wouldn't have won against Obama in 2008, because he'd be tarred and feathered as a white racist.

its like looking into some alternate reality or something. A place where some facts are the same but others are twisted and/or warped into new configurations. The GOP lost the election of 2008 because they had a weak candidate and everyone was more or less pissed off at GWBush, so they took it out on McCain. well...Palin was a moron, which didn't help them any. But this article 'remembers' those facts differently....or flat out ignores things the author didn't want to confront.


It's the whole Party of Personal Responsibility thing. We didn't lose because our candidates and policies didn't connect with the electorate. It was that Liberal Media Cabal working to make us look bad.

But this time things are different. Unless we lose, then we can blame the media again.

From the styrofoam Greek columns to Air Force One buzzing Lady Liberty, from the infamous bows to King Abdullah to the sneering public contempt shown to Benjamin Netanyahu and Hosni Mubarak, both heads of sovereign states -- from the perverse energy decisions about coal, oil, and solar to the bank bailouts for favored Wall Street firms -- from the tax-cheating nominee for SecTreasury to that bloody gun-running for the Sinaloa Cartel in Mexico -- from the mad idea of an "Arab Spring" to the triumph of radical Islam in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, and now maybe Syria -- this administration goes straight from starry-eyed arrogance to bloody disaster.

Barack Obama is an odd bird in American presidential politics. Not because he's black, but...


TLDR version of the article: Obama is black, don't vote for him.

There was absolutely nothing new in that article of derp. It was just recycled 2 year old talking points.

Barack Obama is an odd bird in American presidential politics. Not because he's black

But just so you know, he is black. Black black, blackity black. Not that we should care about that, mind, but boy is he black.

Black as the night.

He goes pallin' around with black people all the time, too. Why even his wife is black. Not that we noticed. But she is black, and boy howdy is she black.

Ahem, where were we?

but because he is so far out of the norm that he doesn't instinctively follow all the standard moves

For example, it would be normal if he were white. But he is abnormal in that he is black.

American politicians have a certain standard set of rituals, just as American baseball players do

And Obama doesn't follow the rituals, which means he is not America, Q. E. D.

A Russian shot-putter who switched to baseball would just look different

And since Obama does look different, because he's B-L-AA-CK...

The examples of Obama's subtle oddities are many

Let's start with the fact that he's black. Did we mention that yet? Well he is. Black, we mean. Very black.

But back to the subject at hand, is American Thinker favored here because its reactionary, moronic, doggedly and blindly partisian bullshiat makes people who have a problem with Obama look like nose droolers?

Do you guys actually read these?

When you're in line at the grocery store, do you get excited when you see the that latest edition of the Enquirer has hit the shelves? I'm genuinely curious because the levels of crazy are relatively equivalent between the two; it's just the consistency that's different...these get squeezed out a lot more often and with a lot less control.

thomps: And if you're the racial messiah running against Hillary Clinton, then yes, the lockstep left can decide in the middle of the primary campaign that Bill and Hillary are racists after all these years.


wait, when did that happen?


They are referring to the minor controversy over Bill Clinton comparing Obama to Jesse Jackson's '84 and '88 campaigns after Obama's South Carolina win. The kerfuffle was over whether or not Bill was just saying that Obama was another black candidate who could win black voters and not white voters.

Yes, the steamroller analogy took into account you weren't likely to inflict any damage on the fly, unless it was stuck in tar or something.

But the fact American Thinker duck butter is green lit butthurts the farkslibs anyway, sensitive as they are.

Boxcutta: FriarReb98: So, seeing as I'm not going to read the link, can someone explain why 2008 doesn't count? Is it a Palin thing?

I'm not going to read it either, but I'm guessing it has to do with ACORN, The New Black Panthers, Van Jones, voter fraud, Chicago style politics, conspiracy and/or George Soros.

How'd I do?


Not bad guesses but from what I took away from TFA, it was just that 2008 was the inevitable endgame of racial equality, mixed with 8 years of the liberal media machine working up a vitriolic lathering hatred of Bush. Any liberal could have won, but Obama being black meant that he was gonna rocket through that glass ceiling and Lincoln himself couldn't have stopped it. (TFA actually did say even Lincoln couldn't have done it, because he'd have been labeled racist) Presumably, with all this librul momentum, Hillary would have had a similar effect; being a woman, it'd represent the endgame of gender equality instead of racial equality. Therefore, since he was politically predisposed to win handily, it wasn't a fair contest for the GOP.

Do you seriously consider a bunch of Fark Lefties and Independents staring at an American Thinker 'article' wherein the sitting president is simultaneously accused of believing himself a messiah while humbling himself - and by extension, America - to foreign royalty to actually be butthurt, or merely, confused at the sheer cognitive dissonance displayed?

Vodka Zombie: Krymson Tyde: Karac: Obama's First Real Election

This is Obama's first election? Cool, after he beats Romney he can run again in 2016.

This is good news! It means he can have four more years to prep for the implementation of martial law...should make the transition run more smoothly.

Does martial come before or after Sharia law? Are we doing this alphabetically?

I need to know because... Well... I kind of have plans.


Martial law first, that way the constitution can be usurped and sharia law can be implimented without having to worry about repercussions.
Duh! You have to try and keep up.

It's important though that you understand there will not be much time between martial and sharia, so get your shiat done quickly.
