You sure you want to bring that up, Troll Account? Given how Romney didn't thank the troops or mention our wars in his speech?

Romney is still losing. And will continue to lose. Until he has lost.

Satanic_Hamster: Oh, this thread again.

Troll accounts; we covered this in the first thread. An incompetent staffer who couldn't tell the difference between his ass and a hole in the ground picked the first cool looking high resolution picture he found in a selection of stock photos, likely just assuming they were all US equipment.


Undoubtedly absolutely true. The problems are that this can be construed by the average onlooker as meaning the democrats are, essentially, incompetent both in selection of staffers and management of said staffers and vetting of content. This, then, has implications for a government composed of democrats.

I mean: some random Internet guys noticed instantly that the ships and planes were not US. There was NO one in the Dem convention controllers who noticed that? Really?

It's just embarrassing and slipshod.

MithrandirBooga: SkinnyHead: It's very relevant. Democrats put up this big patriotic display to show everyone how pro-military they are, and now it turns out they were honoring the Russian Navy and Turkish Air Force, rather than US forces. That exposed their whole display as a facade.

Republicans: Start pointless wars that get our troops killed for no reason and then slash veterans benefits.
Democrats: Don't get our troops killed and support veterans benefits.

Gee. I wonder who supports the troops more.


Exactly. Republicans don't support the troops... they support channeling lots of taxpayer money to their friends with defense contracts though.
 
2012-09-18 03:19:52 PM
You know, 47% of the Russian Navy is just mooching off of the Turks, anyway.

NewportBarGuy: SkinnyHead: It shows that they were not serious in their patriotic display. If they were serious about honoring US forces, they would have used pictures of actual US forces, not Russian warships or Turkish airshow jets.

Mikey1969: The DNC blamed a "vendor error" for the Russian ships being shown, so I imagine that will be the scapegoat again for the display of Turkish Air Force planes. Where is this "vendor" anyway? They didn't outsource video production did they?

It's called "buying stock footage", you idiotic moron. They purchase footage called 'American Warships.mp4', and have to count on whomever provided the footage(Called a farking vendor, dumbass) naming it correctly. You think footage like this just falls from the sky? In today's graphics production field, you pretty much buy all of your footage from a "vendor".


And - if you are smart - someone who knows about it checks it. Apparently Dims are not smart.

netizencain: It's just a fark up at an event that there should not have been a fark up. Producers and editors did not give due diligence to ensure that their work was accurate and of high quality. Just laziness. Typical of liberals.


Exactly. Just like the RNC had an old man yell at invisible foes and lose. Typical conservatives.

They were smart enough to actually mention and praise the troops... which was evidently 100x smarter than the Republicans.

Remember kids, lying to the American public about WMDs in Iraq is perfectly OK but showing some other country's plan in a tribute to America is an impeachable offense.

How's this make you feel, Skinny:

I have absolutely no idea what the actual fark is going on in this thread. I don't remember this big pro-military display, and I keep up on politics fairly well. I hadn't heard the display I didn't know about showed Russian planes, so this sinister correction doesn't even register with me.

That's how farking deep in the echo-chamber you crazy asshats have gotten. Do you people honestly think for one farking second that this story has legs?

Fark's sake this is getting just a little too beyond the pale for me.

Fart_Machine: Tymast: This should be brought up by the Romney campaign, this is their silver bullet to slay the were-muslim from Kenya!

So Obama grows a beard during a crescent moon?


If a werewolf bites a regular wolf, does the wolf turn into a man during a full moon?

Since werewolves take on the mentality and characteristics of wolves in their transformations, would this "wereman" be compelled to do "human-y" things during the full moon? Like shop on the internet? Or troll the local bar scene for some poon?

The Democrats may have farked up on the picture but at least they don't regard Veterans as takers and potential illegal voters.

One thing was a screw up, the other is just plain evil.
 
2012-09-18 03:39:17 PM

ThatGuyFromTheInternet: It's a secret code:
Russia=the USSR=COMMUNISM
Turkey=Muslims

Therefore, the Democrats are secretly communist Muslims! (Also, the Kenyan submarine fleet is in there, too.)


I think the word you're looking for is COMMUSLISM

Shrilling for Skinnyhead. Really? That's just adorable. Alt account?

But to reply; son, back in the day I used to enter/take part in "name this ship" contests on a few naval history websites where they would show a random photo (or partial photo) of a ship and you had to name the class and particular vessel. And *I* didn't notice ships, much less anyone at the convention.

Why?

Because it was a backdrop photo that no one was even paying attention to and the vast majority of people in the armed forces, much less the general public, can pick out ship nationalities just from a profile shot like that. Here's a hint about naval design; most warships world round look alike and are painted the same color. Most of them also buy the same weapons systems.

F'ing Swedes will sell to anyone.

Mikey1969: timujin: okay... um, so? Some folks don't know one plane from another, why is this important? Does this change policy in some way? Does this demean the U.S. military? What's the outrage here?

Skinnyhead doesn't understand how buying stock imagery works. This falls about 99.9% on the supplier, and maybe .1% on someone with the DNC saying 'Hey, those don't look American!'. Hell, I'm curious why it took the Right this long to figure it out. If it's such a glaring error and so obvious, why didn't we hear about it immediately?


is he the one complaining? I don't know, he's one of about three people I have on ignore, marked as (no longer worth the effort)

Hey, at least they remembered that we HAVE troops. They're off fighting that war the Republicans started and then abandoned for ANOTHER war that Obama had to clean up, too...

I have tenpoundsofcheese on ignore, since he admitted a week or two ago that he flt out trolls, only adding comments to see how many people he can piss off. Occasionally, it seems like someone who is self-aware takes over skinnyhead's posting duties, it would seem. Not often, but every once in awhile...

MyRandomName: Fark. Okay to rip endlessly on conservative gaffes, see 20 threads on akin. Not okay to laugh at democrat gaffes.


There's an issue of relevancy. The (at the time) likely next senator from MO, meaning an actual policy maker, showing that he has no idea about junior high school biology and less interest in women vs. a lazy GIS search.


And here's the problem. There are currently two very real attacks one can make on the Obama administration right now regarding their attitude toward the stupid Innocence of Muslims movie and the Benghazi timeline and aftermath. Unfortunately, thanks to the past 5 years of poutrage, these criticisms are being said in the exact same tone that complaints about jeans, beer, oval office attire and iPod playlists were criticized.

Well done!
 
2012-09-18 05:05:51 PM
I hate to buy into conspiracy theories, but is it really that hard for a photo shopper to GIS some "US Airforce" jets and "US Navy" ships?
I don't think any military in the world shows off more than the Americans. Even random luck should have gotten you some allied equipment.

Its either incompetence or intent that brought this about.
Maybe they thought the controversy would put a viral spin on the event for more free press.
 
2012-09-18 06:35:27 PM
Although it is not a big deal at all, I must point out that this is petty bickering, and if the GOP put out something like this, the Dems themselves would be doing what the Repubs are doing now.
