Oodles?

Yeah, that threw me too. Maybe subs meant "coos"? That's usually what people tend to do over babies.

Barack Obama is racist towards black people! I mean, why else would he insinuate that our first African-American President was not born in this country and has unconstitutionally usurped the throne?

He's like Stalin.

Petit_Merdeux: Truly history's greatest monster.


Briebart reports that Obama rudely interrupted peoples meals; inappropriately talked to two children and questioned one on their citizenship. Liberals in the crowd were encouraging him with applause.

Romney would have commented that human babies are proportioned wrong and then say that he know the President of the University.

Racist towards who?

shastacola: Am I in before the first conservative asks why Obama can make a birther joke but Romney can't?


They can crack as many birther jokes as they want, as soon as I'm sure that its really a joke to them. While they're still taking that shiat seriously, not so much.

Yeah, I read that comment and chuckled. Then I saw who made it and said- oh, he's serious. That's too bad.

EnviroDude: Obama telling a birther joke means he is a racist.


Exactly.

I mean, just the other day I saw a group of young black men joking with each other, calling each other "n*****s", so I smiled and said "What's up, my n****s!" and they glared at me and beat me up.

And last week I was talking to my Jewish friend, Rachel, and she made a joke about how when she was a child, her mom was so cheap that she had to wear her aunt's hand-me-downs; so I started to make a joke about how cheap her mom was and she slapped me.

What's up with that?

"At one table, Obama visited a family that was celebrating a child's birthday and he led them in serenading a young woman, Sorina Terrell, with "Happy Birthday." The president also spent a moment with Terrell's 3-year-old daughter, Natalia."

I know it's Florida but that's farked up
WTF?
 
2012-09-09 10:18:37 AM  

loveblondieo: Oodles?


I'm guessing subby meant "ogles", which most people nowadays misspell and mispronounce "oogles". Who knows why.
 
2012-09-09 10:19:06 AM  
A President who can relate to humans on a personal level? That's crazy!

Now EnviroDude may just be a fake troll, but if you scroll down to the comments, there are actual real people with Facebook accounts using this exact line of reasoning as their argument. It's good to know that some people are so stupid that even losing the cloak of anonymity won't stop them from publicly displaying their stupidity.

I thought he was a racist on general principle.

Compared to:

Mitt Romney struts into a bar, cheers the local University's arch opponent's team, spits out his beer and demands what sort of American swill this is, tells a woman at a nearby table to shut up because he's talking, bites several babies, and leaves the place at the behest of the Secret Service before the crowd gets ugly.

skullkrusher: "At one table, Obama visited a family that was celebrating a child's birthday and he led them in serenading a young woman, Sorina Terrell, with "Happy Birthday." The president also spent a moment with Terrell's 3-year-old daughter, Natalia."

WTF?


Possible explanations:

1 - the child and Terrell have the same birthday and people were singing [[copyright-protected song]] to both of them
2 - Terrell IS the "child" but she's either 17 or 20; and if she's called a "child" despite being 20, it's because she's in an establishment that serves alcohol and people who are 18-20 must be treated as kindergarteners in such establishments despite being old enough to vote, drive and get their minds and bodies completely and utterly destroyed by enemy artillery, or else Baby Jesus™ will cry
3 - Yukari is fooling around again

FTFA "You were born in Hawaii?" Obama asked. " You have a birth certificate?"

Whats the over/under on when WorldNutDaily publishes an article stating that this is proof that Obama wasn't born in this country?
 
2012-09-09 10:28:17 AM  
Love the president trolling the right-wing nut jobs.
 
2012-09-09 10:29:30 AM  
It might be my bias; but it seems to me that the more moderate/liberal fakers are way more intelligent, clever and have a serious sense of humor, even to the point of good self-deprecation, than do the more conservative farkers. There are not moderate/conservatives any more. They're called socialists these days.

Obama isn't an aristocrat. Yeah, he has money, most of it from book sales and tours. But he doesn't have *money*.

That he can walk into a relatively unstaged, uncontrolled open environment and simply work it in a campaign is telling. A born aristo would naturally have trouble with this (HW Bush not being able to recognize a scanner at a checkout, the very awkward shopping photos of Romney, etc.). Not that being an aristo makes you a bad president, we've had at least a couple good ones last century. But it does limit what they can do in terms of relating to ordinary citizens in uncontrolled environments.

I'm not following Romney's campaign. Has anyone found an analogous "walk into a semi-random bar without much prep and rule" situation?

He sure loves to hang out with the white folk. Maybe he should visit some unemployed people in a black neighborhood and explain to them why they can't afford to buy food.

Without tipping.

"Happy Birthday" is a copywrited song and he performed it in front of a crowd. so who do you think had to pay those royalties? That's right, the American taxpayer.

Bitterness is a very unattractive trait.

If Mitt did this he would get my vote. I especially like the baby biting image.

The bar has an ASCAP license for performing live music, so it's already paid for.

Fun fact, Oodles of Noodles wrappers do not seem to appear in GIS. I did, however, find the commercial.

I'm very sorry about this. I actually normally do lean social democrat, although in the current atmosphere I come off as a red beret-capped commie (I guess it beats raspberry?). I desperately want to realign not just the parties but the US spectrum. The far right Democrats should be the limit to right wing political derp. Even the modern "centrist" republicans reflect abhorrent values of ultra nationalist far-right parties in contemporary Europe. We need a loud, clear voice on the social/economic left soon or we will suffer even more.

In the US there is no center, just center right and beyond the visible universe right. There are no socialist politicians or really even real left of center politicians since the days of Mink, Wellstone and Kucinich. Of those none of them were much left of center.

The Most Valuable Thing in the World

Sozan, a Chinese Zen master, was asked by a student: "What is the most valuable thing in the world?"

The master replied: "The head of a dead cat."

"Why is the head of a dead cat the most valuable thing in the world?" inquired the student.

Sozan replied: "Because no one can name its price."

You left out that he remarks that the trees in the neighborhood are just the right height.
