What are you talking about? Two days ago, I encountered three "brain surgeons" who vehemently argued that Obama is going to declare martial law and halt the election process before November because he signed a consolidating piece of legislation...back in March. All the right-wing nutball-o-sphere has to do is float that rumor and a significant portion of their base will believe it.

A GOP acquaintance of mine just posted on Facebook that the Romney video is a "game changing WIN for Romney, since even working Democrats will now see the light that 0bummer wants to take away their earnings and give them to the 47% who sit at home all day playing XBox and collecting food stamps"

I told him it's imperative to stop pushing the Q-Tip in the ear canal when resistance is met.

I'm actually shocked that more of my "right-wing" friends haven't posted similar shiat yet. Then again, I don't think I still have many right-wing friends

Romney knows that he is lost, he is using class warfare rhetoric to help the GOP secure the legislature.

I was OK until the Yankees part. Although, if it turned out he was trolling Mitt, I could handle it.

Republican operatives began passing around the clip in question Tuesday afternoon. In it, then-state Sen. Obama described to a conference at Loyola University in 1998 how to "structure government systems that pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution because I actually believe in redistribution, at least at a certain level, to make sure everybody's got a shot."

What a scoop! They caught Obama saying what he has always said.
 
2012-09-19 10:55:41 AM  
I was ok with the video until I saw the Yankees hat. I'm voting Romney now. At least he roots for the Dodgers, Giants, Cardnials, Cubs, Brewers, White Sox, Phillies, Mets, Braves, Rays, and Red Sox.

Gotta love tea-partiers. They all have "multiple advanced degrees" yet don't know the difference between they're/there/their, they all own "several successful business" yet spend hours every day trolling on websites and they all know how to fix the budget yet can't explain the difference between debt and deficit.

The Obama video shows once again that he is a communist. It isn't a big deal because all of his supporters are communists as well as they are too lazy to get a job or work hard. They need the government to be their sugar daddy and give them money. Pathetic.

My family is upping the Derp factor to 11 now. They where already doing mental Gymnastics to Vote for a Mormon (they are baptists). My grandfather worked for bethlehem steel, and might push himself to vote for a "black guy" (yes this too is an issue).

They all watch fox news and read Drudge so they "know" Romney is going to get Reagan level support and win in a landslide.

He has to own this. And it's incumbent upon the American people to pull their heads out of their asses and realize that he was telling most of us he doesn't think we're worth a damn. If they want to elect him after processing that bit of information, that's their business.

Well, I collect unemployment and play Xbox all day so I guess I'm part of the problem.

Of course, like most on unemployment, I am taking this chance to get a new degree and get into a new career. But that part screws the narrative.

There is something wrong when the lower socioeconomic class continue to have babies that they can't afford to feed. Why? Because they know the American people won't turn their backs on children and that child becomes a source of more entitlements. Fast forward and look at the graduation rate of these kids and their criminal history. How about the increase on education go to educating these parents about how their irresponsibility of their sexual behavior is selfish. What does govt require from these irresponsible adults...nothing. Something for nothing is addicting.

did someone mention facebook?

"The president's view is one of a larger government,'" Romney said. "There is a tape that came out where the president is saying he likes redistribution. I disagree."

Two things.

First, Dems never say they want "bigger" government.

Ever.

They say things like "more fair" or "more efficient" but never "bigger".

So that's lie one.

Lie two is Mitt saying he doesn't believe in redistribution of wealth.

Of course he does as long as it's going in the direction he personally benefits from.

Romney isn't a job creator he's a job destroyer and a parasite who sucks the life's blood from the people who actually work for a living. 

More people need to learn this.

You have to love the panic. "The media is only attacking me for saying that nearly half of Americans will never be convinced that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives because they didn't have a positive tax liability a few months ago behind closed doors because they want to avoid reporting that Obama said he supports the government redistributing funds in a way that helps lower income people have a better chance of succeeding (the same thing he's always said except the word redistibute is actually used) fourteen years ago in a public forum!"

You should get a job flipping hamburgers. If there are no jobs flipping hamburgers, then you should dig a ditch. If nobody will pay you to dig a ditch you should just dig a hole and lie in it and wait to die. Do not visit the emergency room when dying gets uncomfortable. Even if you HAVE insurance somehow, don't do it. It costs your betters money. Seriously, why is this so hard? Just lay down and die, okay? If you're not going to work for free, just lay down and die.

2012-09-19 11:03:30 AM  
So someone who just bought a house (therefore gets the maximum homeowner's income tax deduction) and has several children, and is not making a pile of money, are they one of those people Romney says he isn't going to worry about? After all, under those conditions they too would not pay any income taxes.

How about deployed military personnel? Or even their dependents who are still at home, but are living on base and not working? Retirees? All these groups wouldn't be paying income taxes too.

Then RobMe doubles down on his early comments, doesn't try to rephrase or explain what he meant, he just plows straight ahead and damn the torpedoes. The man is so clueless he doesn't realize how badly he's out of touch with everyone else.

I certainly don't agree with it. Government should stay the fark out of my life and not make a single decision for me or take a single action for my benefit or detriment, and this should be enforced by the police because I'm busy learning the art of woodcraft.

Have you noticed the weird correlation that other developed nations with higher levels of entitlements and support for parents/children have lower crime rates, it is the countries that leave parents and children to deal with poverty by themselves (such as America and most third world countries, but I repeat myself) that have high crime rates. So reality seems to be 100% the opposite of your pet theory.

Dusk-You-n-Me: Examples of redistribution: Every government expenditure ever.- Bill Hammond (@NYDNHammond) September 18, 2012


Exactly THIS.

This country was built on redistribution of wealth. We built the interstate system, electrified rural America, built public education and health facilities throughout the country, constructed flood control systems, developed world class higher places of learning, research facilities, water purification and treatment systems, all by redistributing wealth. Our citizenry was educated thanks to redistributed wealth, protected by redistributed wealth, our food is clean and disease free thanks to redistributed wealth, our national park system is thanks to redistributed wealth.

/fark the Republicans who think otherwise
//they'd keep us in the era of the robber barons and the Jungle if they could
