This could well be true, but as a counter point I'd remind you that Romney is endorsed by the bankers who cratered our economy to line their own pockets.

Cold war is STILL over, guys.

Things are getting desperate when all you have is "old enemies are now being friendlier" as a negative.
 
2012-10-23 12:36:46 PM  
So what?
 
2012-10-23 12:38:08 PM  
Literally Hitler would vote for Obama. Literally.
 
2012-10-23 12:47:23 PM  
That would be Pablo Chavez, Steve Putin and Linda Castro. but don't let first names get in the way of Fox News' narrative.
 
2012-10-23 01:00:51 PM  
One of the first things I saw on my FB yesterday from a sad, demented ex-coworker. She added the 'Doesn't that tell you people anything?' to it that made it even more deep and convincing.
 
2012-10-23 01:01:44 PM  
Well all else fails yell "Commie!"
 
2012-10-23 01:01:44 PM  
And Osama totally agrees with Romney's position on America asking Pakistan for permission before sending our troops in to get him.

Or, he would, if he was still alive.

Wow~! The 1980s called again asking why Fox News is still hanging on to a dead talking point.

Obviously this means Romney is automatically president and Obama needs to ride a Russian nuclear warhead powered by Venezuelan oil towards Cuba.
 
2012-10-23 01:02:46 PM  
And from a lot of the rest of the leaders of the free world. The world likes him, sorry subby.

I actually saw the exact same quote on FB, verbatim, from a guy. Talking points are neat like that.
 
2012-10-23 01:03:11 PM  
If Osama Bin Laden were around, he'd give Romney a big thumbs up.

With Romney winning in the polls by 4 points, the question is: are these dead talking points working?
 
2012-10-23 01:04:13 PM  
And Romney wants to make sure we seem like a strong nation in order to impress China and to lower our debt to appease Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Now, I could be wrong, I'm only basing this on things he said last night.
 
2012-10-23 01:04:13 PM  
And of course Castro supported him. He was the keynote speaker Night 1 of the DNC. It was a decent speech, too.

LasersHurt: Things are getting desperate when all you have is "old enemies are now being friendlier" as a negative.


Obama Excuse Squad! Launch! This is a case of America's enemies being "friendlier", because we all know that people who want nothing more than to see America crash and burn will suddenly change their mind if only presented with a president they can get along with. The fact that all three endorsements come from some of the worst people in the world shouldn't really matter.

There's a reason Democrats have a long standing history of being "useful idiots" to Americas enemies.
 
2012-10-23 01:05:39 PM  
I don't understand why being friends with your enemies is necessarily a bad thing. It seems that having a decent relationship with people you otherwise wouldn't normally get along with would be a plus

Worked better on paper than live, in my opinion. He kept riffing on "Brains!", and it really interrupted the flow

Man, the GOP just has nothing to go on after last night. Mitt was shown to be an absolute amateur, and they have been spinning every since.

Until Ming chimes in nothing matters.

I was shocked that they (Fox Entertainment News) actually refer to themselves as the "Spin Zone".

oh they're spinning like tops!

I just have to ask: when has being a dick to those countries you disagree with helped matters? I'm not saying we should be allies with any of these people (and indeed, beyond moving the missile defense location from Poland and coming to an agreement on Iranian sanctions Obama hasn't treated Russia, Venezuela, or Cuba much different from Bush), but when has the Republican model of advocating purposefully incendiary policies and statements towards these countries that don't actually have a clear goal beyond biatch slapping our enemies set the stage for solving our conflicts? You call these people insane and ruthless and cold-blooded, and then you try to claim that swinging our dick around will scare them into submission. When has it ever worked? When has an opponent of the US surrendered because we called them an asshole?

The fact is all this "Our enemies prefer their nominee!" and "I will tell the people who hate us that they can suck it!" talk is just populist rhetoric that only serves to hurt our ability to build coalitions against these foes because we come off as personally invested in screwing over these other world leaders that come off as petty to the rest of the world.

But Luthor and Doom are actually pretty smart when they're not focusing on the object of their personal animus.
 
2012-10-23 01:19:17 PM  
I like how they shoehorned the UN election monitors at the end of the article. I'm not quite fluent in Derpese, but I think they're hinting at a global socialist conspiracy supporting Obama.
 
2012-10-23 01:19:50 PM  
Here's to Obama making travel plans to visit old friends on the apology II (can't fool enough of em twice) tour.
 
2012-10-23 01:20:11 PM  
Romney way more popular with all world leaders = he should be President

Obama way more popular with all world leaders = he is friends with evil doers therefore not fit to be President.

Al Gore called with a funny story about winning the popular vote.
 
2012-10-23 01:20:35 PM  
OMG - Castro's daughter thinks Obama would be better for the world than Romney! Clearly that means Obama is going to nationalize every industry and ensure neurosurgeons and CEOs are paid the same wages as fry cooks and US Army Privates.

I think he would, like, actually do it, too. Honestly.

Remember when Osama wanted Obama to be elected? Go rent some scuba gear and go ask him how that turned out.

Chavez, Putin. Castro.. Three people with more skills and accomplishments than Mitt Romney.
 
2012-10-23 02:09:50 PM  
Chavez and Putin are pricks, sure, but are we still farking afraid of Castro? Isn't he like a skeleton in a wheelchair now?

Really.. The only possible candidate to vote for is one that all foreigner leaders hate, or at least only right wing dictators like.

Oh yeah, I keep forgetting you weren't born yet when Gore was running for president. Look it up on wikipedia. If you can figure out how.
