FloydA: I feel increasingly sorry for George Will. He's obviously intelligent, but his party loyalty is forcing him to embrace (if tepidly) the most irrational nonsense. It's too bad that he can't see past the (D) next to Obama's name to realize that the president is actually a traditional conservative. It's also too bad that the GOP has turned the word "conservative" into a synonym for "lunatic."
GAT_00: I do have to applaud George for how fantastically he misses the point. Really, it requires skill to do it that well.What George terms as 'white guilt' is far more likely to be that while people don't think we have improved much, they don't blame Obama for the economic troubles. Polls done every month still show that a majority of Americans blame George Bush for the financial crisis, and rightly so. While Obama arguably, as I have done plenty of times, could have done much more, he has still tried to fix things, and people recognize that. Presented with a credible alternative, this could easily be overwhelmed. Of course, Romney is so far from credible that this simply isn't happening.Of course, to recognize any of this, George Will would have to pull his head out of his ass, and it's really stuck up there, so that isn't happening.
Lando Lincoln: Someone has to explain this cartoon to me.[www.washingtonpost.com image 296x263]I don't have a goddamn clue what it could mean.
mrshowrules: Obama was carefully and insidiously lead into the trap of most Americans wanting him to have a 2nd term.
Aarontology: Lando Lincoln: Someone has to explain this cartoon to me.[www.washingtonpost.com image 296x263]I don't have a goddamn clue what it could mean.Well, the box says Obama Polls, and there's a caricature of Obama in the box with a guy in a straight jacket.I'm guessing it's part of the "skewed polls" narrative that the GOP is creating as an excuse as to why they're losing because they're incapable of accepting reality.
downstairs: Damn. I used to be a fan of George... even when I didn't agree with him. But he's been sucked into the vortex that all right-leaning commentators seem to be forced into. Ugh. At least he uses really big words.
James!: I also love that he cites durrable goods. DURRABLE GOODS MAN! How can you ignore this damning argument about durrable goods!!?
Sgt Otter: 1. White Guilt is an entirely left-wing, liberal phenomena2. Left-wing liberals (who don't vote third party) traditionally vote Democrat.3. Democratic voters voting Democrat is not evidence of "White Guilt."4. If a conservative, black Republican ran for President, and suddenly a bunch of white liberals decided that while they don't agree with any of his policies, but that they "owed it to the black race" to vote for the black candidate, THAT would be White Guilt voting.5. George, I thought you were smarter than that.
Sgt Otter: George, I thought you were smarter than that.
Tigger: downstairs: Damn. I used to be a fan of George... even when I didn't agree with him. But he's been sucked into the vortex that all right-leaning commentators seem to be forced into. Ugh. At least he uses really big words.They all represent the same central failing:Rather than commit apostasy, they just start lying. It's a very quick and clear sign of intellectual cowardice, lack of integrity and moral bankruptcy.And to avoid it all he has to say is "This group of people who I formerly supported no longer represent my beliefs".

sweetmelissa31: Obama's administration is in shambles, yet he is prospering politically.His administration is in shambles how? Because the economy is slowly improving and Solyndra?

Krymson Tyde: Lando Lincoln: Someone has to explain this cartoon to me.I don't have a goddamn clue what it could mean.It's an indictment of our religion, not the one we should follow, but the one we've allowed ourselves to be tricked into following. The tusked assistant obviously represents either Buddha or the Hindu elephant god Lord Ganesha. Now, that takes care of your Eastern religions. Obama is obviously Jesus because, well, just because so he represents the Western religions. Now in the cartoon, what's happening? We see that we've all been duped by Obama, who is not Jesus, but instead the Antichrist and now we're all trapped in the safe (our own foolishness) and it's imminent falling is representative of our nations ultimate descent into Hell (the water represents flames, the fish, with their pointy fins) represent demons). Our only hope is the true American savior and the only way we can escape is by acquiescing to the only one who is capable of leading our nation to that savior. We must follow the Mormon or we are all surely doomed.
dogdaze: This is the same BS the cons have been pushing ever since Obama got the Democrat nomination the first time. Will says the Obama admin is in shambles. How so? Will never bothers to expand on that. It is really killing cons like Will that Obama has had all the success he has and since they have a complete dud for a candidate, this is what they have been reduced to, a bunch of race-baiters.
Forlorne Greene: "... a sound policy that would subvert the caricature of him as rapacious capitalism embodied." Caricature?
