"I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake. A terrible flood. Locusts! IT WASN'T MY FAULT, I SWEAR TO GOD!"

Oh, bless your heart. Should I have not sent money to Gary Johnson's campaign? (Well, probably not, but I've thrown money away on other useless endeavors before.)

No man, you do what you want. I like you. I just chuckle at how quickly you reject the GOP label.


If the GOP "label" were a wine label, it would be on the side of a box. Or if it were on a bottle, winos would brown bag it out of a sense of shame.

see... you guys never admit fault...


Well "my guy" is running on a third party ticket and wasn't invited to the corporate-sponsored, meticulously rehearsed talking point parroting, dog and pony show that passes for a "debate" these days.

I hope so, any less activity and he's be declared dead and Biden would take over as President.

Britney Spear's Speculum: If we don't hear "that's not what you said in the last debate" then Obama doesn't want to win.


Well, would you want four more years of the shiat he and his family have dealt with? Everything's a scandal, even the mustard he puts on his burger, or his wife wanting kids to not be fatties, or his daughter wearing a t-shirt around the house. I wouldn't even campaign if I were him. I'd make one commercial that says "You need to actually think about what you do this November and consider all the consequences. The fate of this nation and your future hinge on this guy not getting into the WH. Choice is yours, America. I'm Barack Obama, and I'm set for life no matter what happens. You, however, might just be well and truly farked."

I like this. British Petroleum had only two choices for their label. It was BP or GOP. After dozens of focus groups the firm chose to let millions of barrels of oil leak into the Gulf of Mexico, and then advertised, "BP could be worse, at least we're not the GOP."

Here is how Obama should start out the next debate.

"Before we begin here, I have an important question to ask the governor. Which version of Mitt Romney am i debating this evening? Is it the one that is for abortion, or against it? Is this the Romney that is for tax cuts for the top 20% or against them? Is this the Romney that is for gun control or against it? Is this the Romney with a health care plan that covers pre-existing conditions, or the one who doesn't? is the Romney who believes in increasing minimum wage or the one against it? Is this the Romney in favor of privatizing Social Security or the one against it? Is this the Romney in favor of bailing out banks, or the one against it? America needs to know which Romney is on the platform here."

I understand that in this forum it will not be a popular opinion, or even acknowledged as "acceptable", but it is important that you understand that President Obama is not the transcedental (sp?) leader that you thought. Normal, well educated people can honestly disagree with is "vision" and not by that fact alone be considered racist or ignorant. He appears to be/sound completely condescending to anyone who doesn't blindly follow his "vision". in my 50+ plus years, I have never experienced such blind loyalty/ignorance to an elected official.

Karne: tenpoundsofcheese: FlashHarry: he has a country to run and may be distracted by real problems. no, he's admitting fault.

If he thought his top job was running the country, then maybe he could have met with the world leaders at the UN rather than going on The View and lying on Letterman about the 9/11 attack on the embassy.
It isn't as if there are troubles in the Mideast or anything.

Are you just cutting and pasting prior posts now? You get paid 50 cents for every reply on this site? I've made you over a dollar already today...sigh.


The thing I like is the implicit endorsement of the UN.

The Evil That Lies In The Hearts Of Men: shower_in_my_socks: He was. He gives the average American too much credit, as if without his help everyone would be able to see what a lying, pandering sack of shiat Romney is. They don't see it, Mr. President. You have to call him out on it. Bring the pain in the remaining debates, and the White House is yours for another 4 years.

I wonder if he was up on the stage thinking "Wow, I can't believe how well this is going - everything he says is either an obvious and outrageous lie or a complete reversal of his positions the last few months. Moderates will see that he's full of shiat and his base will crucify him for ditching the positions he panders to them with. I'll just let him keep talking." then the next day he turned on the news to see how it went and said "Doh! I forgot most people have shiat for brains."


Not sure about Obama, but that's sure as hell what I was thinking.

Then I read the fark debate thread.

As someone who lettered in debate in High School, I think I have some fairly solid footing when I say: Lying nearly 30 times in less than 40 minutes is the exact opposite of knowing how to debate.
