St_Francis_P: Aren't the details supposed to be secret, but he'll reveal them once he's President?


The details are actually inscribed on a set of golden plates. The problem is Obama has stolen the Seer Stone they need to translate it. Once they win the election they'll be able to get it back.

coeyagi: cameroncrazy1984: Cletus C.: cameroncrazy1984: Cletus C.: You are correct. It would be the economy with an 8.3 percent unemployment rate. That's the one.

Ah yes, the one that was at 9.7% before the stimulus. Thanks for pointing that out.

Slowest. Most Sluggish. Most Fragile. Recovery. Ever.

Hi, I'd like to introduce you to the Great Depression.

The Great Depression will be his use of Paxil in 20 years once he realizes how f*cking atrocious his conservative leaders have been these past 4 years and how much they slowed the recovery.

Just remember trolls: Bush, 33rd best president ever and Obama, 14th best president according to historians.


No, no, no. Bush was the 33rd best president ever, but Obama is the 30th worst.

mrshowrules: nmrsnr: Dear lord, when Bill Kristol is forced to say "yeah, the Democratic President handled the economy pretty well" you know you're right screwed using that line of attack.

I'm confused. If Bill Kristol says that and he's always wrong - what does that mean? Maybe the Dems did fark everything up. Maybe the US would be better off with Romney in charge.


No no no, it's like that riddle with the guards, one who always lies and one who always tells the truth, you can get the right answer from the liar, even though he's lying.

See, since Romney consistently lies, and Kristol is always wrong, then when Romney says that we're worse off than four years ago, he's lying, but Kristol disagrees with the lie, which is the truth, so that... aww, fark it, just look at Sliding Carp's post.

I have a different episode in mind:

Romney: We look for things.

Reporter: What were you looking for?

Reporter: Things we need.

Reporter: Can you be more specific?

Romney: Things that make economy go. We need help.

vartian: St_Francis_P:
Sometimes I have to remind myself how lucky I am that none of my relatives are like that.

Mine could give a shiat about guns, but they are furious they are not clearing a million dollars a year yet. Their families pull in around 200-300k, they live in absurd McMansions, they drive multiple new cards and have kids that get one of everything. And they are angry all of them time. They get angry when they hear about poor people having food stamps or healthcare or job placement assistance. "No one ever helped me!" they shout, forgetting how our great-grandmother arrived in Michigan after fleeing her home country of Armenia during the Turkish Genocide. How this country opened its arms to refugees with nothing but the clothes they wore and memories of dead villages.

They have everything, fume over people with nothing, and forget their own history as they curse immigrants. Christmas should be interesting this year.

FTA: New York Times columnist David Brooks advised Romney take an "extremely wonky" approach.

Crooked; off-center; askew.

Cletus C.: If Obama wins a second term will it finally be his?


NO. Do you realize that a "recession" is a mathematically defined term? Do you understand that it began in 2007 and ended in June of 2009? That's not a matter of opinion -- it's based on how the term "recession" is defined. Do you get that something that happened on someone else's watch and was over, BY DEFINITION, just a few months after Obama took office is not, and never will be, "Obama's Recession"?

We are not in a recession now. We haven't been in one for most of Obama's term. You don't even know what a recession is, so stop typing, and go read a farking book.

The US economy is the Titanic. Bush was the Captain and ran it into the iceberg. He and his first mate got fired and Obama took over a badly listing, close to sinking ship. Four years later instead of resting at the bottom of the sea the ship is getting closer to it's original cruising speed as it nears the harbor but instead of being grateful and learning from their mistakes, the GOP is claiming that not only could they have fixed it too, but they would now turn it into a speedboat if given another chance.

Or, if you find yourself NOT so blessed, relief is just a not-phone call away.

To paraphrase Ron Swanson, there are certain members of my fox-news-loving, Limbaugh-fellating extended family that I haven't talked to in years, and in that time they've become some of my favorite relatives. We still never talk sometimes.

Helps that they live 3,000 miles away though.

The Romney campaign has premised much of its message on Obama's economic record and has repeatedly refused to flesh out detailed policy proposals on issues from tax reform to immigration reform. The Romney campaign recently promised to reveal more specifics about what Romney would do in office, but has been slow to provide them.

Aren't the details supposed to be secret, but he'll reveal them once he's President?
