King Something: CMYK and PMS: During his first campaign I kept hearing what a great speaker he was. I didn't see it. His speeches always seemed rather juvenile. Then it occurred to me that the folks who thought he was a great speaker also thought Tupoc was a poet.

You don't sound one bit racist. Not at all.

Because if there's one thing in the world that could never be considered even the slightest shadow of a hint of dog-whistle bigotry, it's saying that the people who like Barack Obama also like one of the most famous gangsta rappers of all time.

/by the way, that "poet's" name was "TupAc" -- with an "A," not an "O"



I had not even thought of their race, I was thinking of the intellectual capabilities of their fans. But thanks for showing your bigotry

What was great about those speeches was the message. Principles, optimism, a real desire to do good and a real plan to achieve it. When you're selling delicious burgers to hungry people, it doesn't matter how you say it.

When you're trying to sell America on shiat sandwiches for the next 4 years, like Rmoney is, your pitch better be great.


A good message does not make a good speaker. How is "Principles, optimism, a real desire to do good and a real plan to achieve it." working out for you?

Pretty good, though it would have been better without that whole, "The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president" thing.


So you're saying that Obama has "Principles, optimism, a real desire to do good" cause all I see is a typical dirty Chicago politician.

WombatControl: He has failed to unite the country because he represents an ideological extreme, not the center.


This is a good sentence. You should have stopped with this one. It's completely wrong, but phrased in such a way that it comes across as confidently stated. But then you kept going and it just got overdone. You won't get many responses after people figure out that you are 100% stupid and not worth wasting any of their lives on. Keep at it, though. You'll get there.

WombatControl: RyogaM: You know what else that means? That Obama's approval ratings are TOO LOW for what he has actually accomplished. His leadership is undervalued as shown in his middling approval ratings because half the country refuses to see we have to go in the direction he is using his leadership to go. Tough shiat for your side.

If there was an Academy Award for naked sycophantic shillery, that would be a nominee.

There's a reason why Obama's approval ratings are middling at best. Because he's a poor leader. He's not a great President. ObamaCare was not a grand achievement. He has failed to unite the country because he represents an ideological extreme, not the center.

And he may well lose the election because four years ago he repeatedly and stridently promised the American people that he would end the recession. Now he's arguing that this "new normal" is an accomplishment rather than a sign of failure. The American people rightly see that as pathetic, and no matter how many speeches Obama gives, he can't escape his own record.


Jesus, dude. It took you THREE hours to finally respond. But, hey, at least you know the shiat-sandwich that is Romney is a no longer worth trying to defend. Kudos.

As for his record on job growth, in October of 2009, the unemployment rate finally bottomed out at 10%, after rising for more than a year. Since that time, the rate has dropped 2.2% in three years. That's better growth than Bush the lesser, better growth than Clinton, better growth than Bush the Elder and nearly matched Reagan's growth. That rate that Obama accomplished in the last three years? That's the same rate Romney says he will match if elected. So, don't give me this can't run on his record B.S. especially when Romney can't even mention his record of failure as governor.

Obamacare not the center? It's the same damn thing as Romneycare, except it doesn't cover abortions. Is Romenycare not the center? So, Romney signed off on far-leftist legislation? Sure, he did. And his record of achievements other than Obamacare? Despite Republican efforts to drag their heels?

Start here and here

Give me a break. Go ahead and vote for the guy who matched Bush's level of disapproval in half the time. Vote for Mr. 33%. Go ahead and pretend your candidate is not a shiat sandwich who can't defend his record as governor. Have fun with that.

Is it painful being such a moran that you think politics is a zero sum game? Just because someone criticizes
one side doesn't put him on the other team. It is goobers like you that are the real reason this country will never see real change. It is always your team against the other team. People that can think things through realize that both teams suck.

Sure you didn't, which is exactly why you decided to say that Obama fans think Tupac doesn't suck instead of saying that Obama fans hold Nickelback, or Justin Bieber, or GNR, or some other sucky musical act, in high regard.

And, in all your totally-not-thinking-about-those-people's-race glory, you decided to comment on the intellectual capabilities of Obama's fans by avoiding the obvious "end-product of the public school system" angle and an easy "dumber than a pile of bricks"-type potshot in order to utilize the absolutely-devoid-of-even-an-iota-of-xenophobia "they like rap music" approach.


But I'm the REAL racist for even allowing to cross my mind the though that your words might possibly have a non-zero chance of potentially being construed as racist.

Ok dude. If you think my post makes me a racist then have at it. Or you could look at the broader picture that people who think Obama is a great speaker are the same people who don't know what a great speaker is. That was the point whether you understood it or not.

Yeah, watching the debates right now, it's AMAZING to see President Obama stumble and stammer his way through-oh wait, he's absolutely BURYING Romney's lies under a heaping helping of liberal, left-leaning FACTS.
