How can some of you vote for this guy? I get that you don't like Obama and want to vote against him but Romney is just such a horrible candidate, how can you justify that?

Fivethirtyeight is currently predicting that nearly 48% of votes cast in November will be for Romney. That's just terrifying.

The fact that they knowingly listen to the lies and either repeat or ignore them is just beyond me. I have a relative that I point out the pure bullshiat to all the time and it doesn't even make a dent. I don't argue, just have a polite discussion, but it does no good.

In politics, you dance with the girl that brought you. Even if that girl is saw-toothed white trash whore, with five kids from 4 dads, has a meth addiction, and has a slight case of the Downs.

Obama's black. Well, he's actually biracial, but he identifies more as African-American. That's all it takes. Barack Obama could go on national television and personally hand $100 bills to people just because, and if they came from red states, they'd vote for Romney anyway. Doesn't matter what he does, what he says, where he goes, or who he has taken out. Nothing he does will ever make up for the fact that he's black, and being black is a deal-breaker for these mouth-breathing farkwits.

Exactly.. I wonder how much a lead Dems would have if Obama were white. Would it be 60%? 65%? I know people around North Georgia that on principle are democrats but "aint votin for some n****r!" Must suck to go through life hating people.
 
2012-09-12 12:09:03 PM
Body's not even in the ground yet. Instead of making your own statement condemning the attack and sending condolences to the families... you condemn Obama, because you think it'll help your campaign.

Stay classy, Mitt.

I've been wondering the same thing, but I've come to the conclusion that they'd still try to paint him as an out of touch, elitist, anti-christian, northern liberal, Marxist product of Chicago politics.

Not that it needs to be said in this forum, but I can't help myself.

Romney is a bad person, and should feel bad.

I know, if President Bush had not ordered the bombing of Libya in 2011, those diplomats would still be alive. Not to mention how the investigation to find Bin Laden started under the Obama administration.

And the debates haven't even started yet. This is going to be a long home stretch for Romney. If he had greater ambitions that just being the President for the sake of being the President he might have said something smarter today and might be better off in the long run.

Let's not over play the racism angle. Sure there are those that won't for him because of his skin color. My guess however, is there are also plenty of people who won't vote for him because he has a D next to his name, who don't mind that he's black.

The right has spent the last several decades turning politics into a sport, where you root for the R team no matter what they do, and hate the D team, no matter what they do. The last 6 or 7 years, with the rise of Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity, has really driven home the team mentality, and the idea that to even consider other points of view or to try to take a step back and look at the facts or compromise on a solution that all can be happy with, makes you into an American Hating Lib who is out to destroy America.

The only way to be a good American and show you love America is to vote for the Republican running, regardless of who he is, what he stands for, or what he's done. It doesn't matter if he's a lying sack of shiat. It doesn't matter if he supports policies that will directly harm you. You must vote for him, because to fail to do so will let the D team win. And the D team wants to destroy American and hates everything that makes America successful.

I play in a small poker league once a month, and we have a couple of rabid Teahadists in the group. I make it a point to avoid talking politics to them because they will absolutely not listen to any relevant facts that does not fit the narrative they have in their minds.

I wasn't at the table where the conversation started, but while playing there was some normal table chatter interrupted by a very loud "ANYONE VOTING FOR OBAMA GETS WHAT THEY DESERVE!"

This was followed by about 4 of us yelling "NO POLITICS!" It took about 5 minutes to calm a few people down. Fortunately he got bounced out of our little Hold Em tourney first so we didn't have to put up with him the rest of the night.

He's going to be at Full Teahad next month when I'm hosting, so I'm posting a "No politics!" sign on the front door.

I need a tax cut. And the hippies at the EPA to stop telling me I can't dump fracking fluid in a river. Also the amount of time that Obama does or does not pray and in what manner is remarkably important to me for some reason.

DNRTFA: OK, I'm confused: Is it false that Obama is not a corporate whore today? Or not? Is it OK to be a corporate whore so long if I'm a Democrat? Can I be a rich person with Swiss Bank accounts, etc., so long as I vote for Dems. Please tell me what to believe. I want to believe....

I know a single (divorced) mom who believes, among other things, that "2016" is a truthful documentary. I'd be lying if I said I weren't looking forward to when she unwittingly says something good about one of Obama's policies (not at all unlikely as health care reform starts to take effect) and I get to tell her, "WELCOME TO OBAMA'S AMERICA!"

Not that I expect it to change her mind, of course.

Our embassy in Cairo puts out a statement condemning Americans who would utilize and use their First Amendment rights, their free speech rights to say something to make a movie, to apologize to Muslims in advance for it.

Then

We are to accept the notion that any criticism of this religion justifiably makes these people nuts, and they attack our embassy, and then they kill our ambassador, and it's Terry Jones fault. It's not theirs. It's not the militant Islamists' fault. No, no, they're sitting there minding their own business, 9/11, they don't even remember what the significance of the date is. They hear about the movie. They hear about the preacher and they go nuts in our embassy. And we're supposed to believe this?

When the US Embassy in Cairo says "The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims."
That is a condemnation of Americans. Misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims, thereby justifying for all intents and purposes whatever actions Muslims with hurt feelings take after this.

We should not be condemning Americans for exercising free speech and we should not be justifying the actions of these mobs.
