Do you really want to take a look at the scoreboard on this one? Because Romney's sitting at zero.

How many bin Ladens did Romney kill, so far?

Well, he's got Bibi.

Funny, some people are so stupid. The question asking if Romney has laid out a better economic vision, 39% selected Romney. "I won't apologize" and "12mm jobs" aren't economic visions. They're platitudes that are meaningless without any direction.

Romney hasn't actually laid out an economic vision. Also, 41% think that Romney was right with his 47% statement.

Actually, I'd say Bibi's got him.

Well, Utah's kind of like a foreign country so he's got that going for him.
 
2012-09-28 08:57:13 AM
How about the one who had bin Laden killed versus the one who said it wasn't worth moving heaven and earth to find him?

Well, to be fair, Obama didn't fly in advance to Libya, put on his super-suit and personally wipe all those freaks out. He could have done that, you know, but he just didn't care.

A thousand times the rest of Republicans... COMBINED.

Romney should offer much larger jobs, using 'Merkin units like feet and horsepower. What's this tiny, metric job BS? Sounds pretty commie to me. This is why he won't win...
 
2012-09-28 10:26:26 AM
Handle terrorism? Oh, you're implying Romney, the guy who says that Russia is our number one threat and also the person who wants to start a war with Iran.

You know, as opposed to the current president, who has a very long list of dead terrorists that his administration has taken out.
 
2012-09-28 10:26:36 AM
Actual comment board posts:

Most of America is sick to death of Comrade Obama's bowing, scraping, and apologizing to terrorists after they've killed Americans

Oh the poll question was who would be TOUGHER on terrorism. OK. I get it now. I was confused by the title of the article "Romney overtakes Obama on Terrorism" and I thought, correctly, that there is no way Romney is a bigger terrorist than Obama.

I have one question for Obama: Why are you more sympathetic to the muslim religion than you are to the Catholic religion? You refuse to call the muslims terrorists, you apologize for offending statements regarding muhammad, you ask NASA to promote their "so called contributions", yet you cram abortion and birth control down the throats of Catholics with no regard for their beliefs. It appears to me that you will always be on the side of the muslim terrorists no matter what happens.


And of course...

What about Ron Paul?? He wouldn't have allowed this to happen! Think about that one people!

Funny how the day after the attack, I was hearing how the ambassador's attack wasn't thought to be part of the protests.

Pretty sure his press speech and all that smirking put him at negative.

And now for the next contestant on "Most Disingenous Headlines By A Mouthbreathing Idiot"...

Ya know, subs, if the GOP platform actually had any merit whatsoever, you wouldn't need to sink to these levels. I know you don't have much to lose in your own life, being a pathetic loser and all, but think of all those after you who will be humiliated by the sound of your name.

Don't forget that Putin has already used Romney's idiotic remarks to fight against the European missile shield system.

Romney's not even in office, and he's already weakened us.
 
2012-09-28 10:28:49 AM
Terror attacks on US soil since Obama took office: Zero

Al Qaeda "Number 2's" killed since Obama took office: Alot

Bin Laden's killed since Obama took office: 1

Terrorists killed by Rmoney: Zero

Who's soft on terror again?
 
2012-09-28 10:29:24 AM
I like how easy it is for Republicans to use dead people as a political football.
 
2012-09-28 10:29:35 AM
Can someone post the Bush "Miss me yet" / BinLaden "Yes" pic?

Thanks in advance
 
2012-09-28 10:30:11 AM
Can someone please quote where the administration came out and said it was over a movie and not that terrorists had used the protests as misdirection and cover for the attack?

Because that was the story I had heard that started the day after the attack, with the continuing protests being over the movie.

Vodka Zombie: How many bin Ladens did Romney kill, so far?


Right! And Obama is working hard at protecting America after all monitoring of electronic communications inside the U.S. has climbed 60 percent under Obama, how many people has Romney spied on?
 
2012-09-28 10:30:46 AM
They really politicized the shiat out of the embassy RIOTS and it's farking disgusting.

Romney will continue the republican business model of invading the fark out of random ME countries or whatever else Israel tells him to do and accomplishing nothing but death to American soldiers.

An utterly meaningless statistic.
 
2012-09-28 10:35:20 AM
As always, the devil is in the details.

The polling question that the article refers to is:

Please tell me which candidate do you think would be best on being tough on terrorism

Talk about a stupid vague question.

And if you had reminded people that Obama killed OBL, the results would have been very different.

And look what happens when you ask more specific questions:

Who do you think is better suited to handle international crises in Libya, Egypt, Syria and other Middle East conflicts: Obama 49-38

Turning to the situation with Iran potentially developing nuclear weapons, which of the following is the best approach for the U.S.? Diplomacy beats joining up with Israel 49-32. That's basically Obama's policy vs Romney's.

Yeah, but that's only 38% of the time.

At first I was all like WTF is this sh*t, but then I was like oh, it's the Washington Post.

Your blog sucks.
 
2012-09-28 10:39:46 AM
Is that the same one who killed Osama bin Laden, has systematically dismantled Al Qaeda all over the world, and has brought forces to bear in Pakistan despite the risks to ensure terrorist infrastructure there is destroyed?

Or the one who has done...let's see....carry the one...nothing?
 
2012-09-28 10:40:25 AM
Please... By all means, let Romney pontificate at length about foreign policy.

By saving the US the trouble of setting up an expensive boondoggle of a program that would do nothing useful and be an open wound in it's relationship with Russia?

P.S. Obama was already promising "more flexibility" on the missile shield after the election.

Well c'mon now....he smirked at a press conference about the attack. That's farking leadership.

Right! Obama went back in time and created the DHS after he failed to protect us on 9/11. And governments that are given illegitimate powers are always quick to do the right thing and repeal those powers. Right?

Stop being an asshole. Or go read a goddamn book. How about both?
 
2012-09-28 10:49:53 AM

PsyLord: Right... because Romney would have had actionable intel?


He would have loved America so much that the terrorists would fear his love of America and wouldn't even think of doing anything to get in the way of that love for America because America.
 
2012-09-28 10:50:35 AM
Because what American REALLY needs is a President that jumps to conclusions and runs his mouth off before he has all the facts.

Well, the geniuses at Faux News would argue this guy orchestrated a terrorist attack:

However I'm think this guys shooting was more of a terrorist attack:
[upload.wikimedia.org image 217x224]



Which proves that the word "terrorism" is now used to mean any act of violence under any situation, even if no political demands are stated and so "terrorism" as a word has about as much meaning as "hipster". AKA, none.
