thenewmissus: I knew that it would bring spending and the budget into focus.


And, stunningly, the Romney campaign wasn't ready for that. Picking Ryan while being totally unable and unwilling to discuss spending or the budget is farking clownshoes. There's no excuse for that level of incompetence.

thenewmissus: I also knew that it would mak e people take a GOOD look at the Ryan plan.


The only people looking at the Ryan plan are the Democrats. The Romney campaign has basically said that because it's not 100% identical to the plan that Romney will theoretically put out in the future, the entire thing is off the table for discussion.

Romney has, in effect, silenced the biggest (only?) policy pusher the GOP had.

You mean the plan that they refuse to say anything more than "trust me" about?

RyogaM: Jackson Herring: Here's the thing though - he can attack the sequestration all he wants because in Republican Voter Fantasy Land, those cuts are all Fartbama's doing.

Which is great because it totally demolishes the GOP talking point that Obama is a spend-o-crat, trying to run us into debt. The sequestration is one of Obama's greatest accomplishments, it will force budget cuts on the military and elsewhere whcih both parties have been trying to avoid. The main problem is that it is risky to the economy, but he doesn't have to worry too much because he doesn't have to be reelected. It may be remembered as Obama's greatest political win yet.


It doesn't demolish anything. Have you been living under a rock? What part of the last months (years?) leads you to believe that Conservatives(tm) won't go right on attacking Obama for spending too much even as they attack him for spending cuts, and that the idiots on the right won't just eat it up like always?

Because any runner know that a sub 3 hr marathon is just a rounding difference from a plus 4 hr race.

jm105: AverageAmericanGuy: The practice of politics is an exercise in compromise. Not everyone walks away completely happy from every deal, and many times one side or the other may regret having caved on certain aspects of the final deal.

Wasn't it regarding this legislation that the Republican Speaker Of The House said he got "98% of what he wanted"? Not a lot of compromise there.


Yup. He said he got 98% of what he wanted and still they wouldn't put it to a vote. fark the GOP with a rusty nail.

The core of Romney's position is nuanced, subtle, and with a genuine understanding of how best to govern. As President, he'll have the ability to veto, which is something that Congressional legislators do not.


Citation needed for Romney's core please. Are you speaking of the 1st generation of the core processor or has it had an upgrade?

He'll just reprogram the Diebold so it is possible to rescue the campaign.

Tusz: I don't get how the Romney and Ryan think they'd be good at running the country when they hate everything they've done in government so far.




Look at how awful government is, JUST LOOK AT WHAT WE HAVE DONE!

xanadian: What this tells me about Ryan is he's willing to at least *sometimes* compromise on important issues.

What this tells me about Romney is he's a goddamn retard.


That's all you really needed to say.
