Weaver95: the freepers are going to be very confused when Obama gets reelected.


I remember before the 08 elections took place, I read a few Freeper posts.

Some of them were "While I hate Barry HUSSEIN Obama, I respect the Office of the President and will accept it if he wins".

Boy, that went south quickly, didn't it?

FTFA: These idiots are just building Obama Romney up so they can feign outrage and say the election was stolen when Obama eats a crap sandwich drinks his milkshake in November.

FTFY

Hahaha, 'normalized' with 2010 turnout? Fun stuff. You want to spin things and be believable with it, use a 2004 turnout model. It's still wrong, but it's believable wrong than using a midterm turnout.

nobody is saying that the freepers can't speak up and be crazy. hey, I think it's AWESOME when they rant out in public about birth certificates, 9/11 conspiracies and socialism. shine on you crazy diamond! But just because you CAN speak doesn't mean people will listen. nor does it mean you won't get laughed at for your efforts. that's what's happening here - people are pointing at the freepers and laughing at the stupid things they say. yeah, it's kinda rude...but fark is like that at times.

Nah. There's no money to be made in a Romney presidency. There's a reason why Fox News has donated to the Obama campaign at higher amounts than either the Romney or McCain campaign.

i'm sure some will scream voter fraud. I think it more likely that most of them will simply scream. then they'll demand that the GOP dig in it's heels and do their level best to gut, destroy and otherwise harass the Obama administration's efforts to fix the economy and/or otherwise conduct the business of government.

Yes and they 100% believe this stuff. Everything on Fox is to be believed..

It's funny I watched Fox for 5 minutes on Wednesday as a joke. It showed a clip of Obama saying "We're not ally's and we're not friends." Then it broke away to a few talking heads and every single one of them said "Why did Obama say we we're allies with Egypt!?" They then spent the next 5 minutes hammering home how wrong it was for Obama to say we're allys with Egypt. I'm sitting with friends watching this and asked them to clarify what I just witnessed.. It's like they showed the clip unmodified and then created an entirely new memory of what was in the clip. Fascinating if it weren't so scary.

Their proof will be some lazy-ass canvasser who took an extra-long lunch, and then finished his quota by registering Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, Clint Barton, Natasha Romanov, Thor S. Odinsson, and Bruce Banner to vote.

You're not the demographic base that Faux News is trying to attract.

The funny/sad thing is, if you read a few threads on Freep you'll see their paranoia levels are so ramped up that they don't even trust Fox any more. Most of them are convinced that Roger Ailes is a totally owned tool of the "GOPe."

I think they're still sticking with "ACORN stole the election!!!!1!". If anything, when not busy alienating voters, they seem to have been very efficient at laying the groundwork for the case that three unemployed paralegals in Podunk defrauded the entire nation, or something. Chemtrails?

I can assure you that post was quickly deleted, and the user banned, for daring to afford FartNambla any respect whatsoever. "Respect the office" was only required when liberals/indies openly questioned Bush's headstrong and ignorant chickenhawk policies.

/posted once to freerepublic, agreeing with them (as a troll of sorts). They banned me immediately for not exhibiting at least 40% of the DSM-IV in one paragraph. Apparently that is the metric used to measure ideological purity

Assuming Obama wins, election fraud will be to his second term what the birth certificate was to this one.

This is what I honestly think happens: When the master control room runs the clip, they just literally shut off their brains. You know those behind-the-scenes shows that depict the control room director running the show? I could see him dialing-down the audio so they don't even hear what Obama says when the clip is running. They're handed a script, in a way. It's probably all up on the prompters, and so they:

"...and here's President Obama reacting to the tragic events in Lybia today..."
Control Room: "Back in 30, bring down the monitor audio..."
Talking Head #1: (watching but not hearing Obama on the monitor) "So, golf this weekend?"
Talking Head #2: "Maybe. My kid has a soccer game. Call me Sunday morning."
Control Room: "Back in 15..."
Talking Head #3: "Hey, did you see the cans on that makeup girl?"
(other Talking Heads nod)
Control Room: "Back in 5...4..3..2.."
Talking Head #1: "So, as you can see, the President CLEARLY indicated that the United States is both a friend AND an ally to a known terrorist regime hostile to US Interests. When will Americans wake up?"

It reminds me of the 2004 election, but with the sides reversed.

Meh, yes and no. Are there still morans in 2012 who actually judge a man unfit because he's blah? Yes. But this is more about hyper-partisan pants-sh*tting than anything. They did it to Clinton, too, but in those days it was all dial-up, Geocities, and the fact that not everyone had 4 grand to spend on a computer. Now that computers and broadband are cheap, it's just instant, petulant bed-wetting whenever a Democrat assumes power, and we just hear more of it these days.

Honestly, I'm a little tired of my fellow Fark libtards always resorting to "we get it, he's black." It's just grown tiresome when the real issue is that Republicans simply can't take a defeat without soiling themselves. Their entire reason for existence is to stonewall a Democrat and even make matters worse just so they can retake the field. Both parties enjoy their own power, but there's no crybaby like GOP crybaby. Also, Democrats don't appear to actively wish ill-will on the nation for political expediency.

According to nearly all state-by-state polling, right now Obama is leading Romney in the electoral vote by a  (airquote) razor-thin (airqoute) margin of 332 to 206.
 
Yep, landslide coming...

My Teabagger coworkers are literally giggling with excitement. Really. They read something from Drudge or Free Republic, and they high-five each other in the cube farm. They're really excited about all the neocon Supreme Court Justices their team will get to appoint after they win the House, the Senate, and the White House.

FWIW, that sight has about 1/3 the traffic it did in it's heyday, when they claimed the head of Dan Rather as a trophy. That's when they started to believe their own bullshiat.

I hear lots of folks in bars or at work who actually buy the media hype that it's close. There are some stats citing that the popular vote may be considered an actual competition, but apparently everyone has forgotten how we actually elect presidents (agree with it or not). Anyone genuinely believing that Romney will pull it off likely sprinkles crack on his Cheerios.

It's not Mondale/Reagan, but if I were a Republican I'd just prepare my anus and learn to enjoy it.
