It's extremely hard to not be cynical in the face of the modern GOP. Can't blame him.

When your opponent suddenly acquires all of your policies in the most cynical campaign ploy in memory, there's really no other way to respond.

And how soon America forgets:

Mr. Romney's team has concluded that debates are about creating moments and has equipped him with a series of zingers that he has memorized and has been practicing on aides since August. His strategy includes luring the president into appearing smug or evasive about his responsibility for the economy.

The Romney campaign said that to the farking New York Times on the record.

Frankly, I'm impressed that he's not *more* cynical.

How else can you respond to childish nonsense? That's about all that comes from the GOP these days. Things have really changed a lot over the past 30 years or so.

No idea, but rest assured he is a Fark IndependentTM.

Romney and the current GOP deserve and the derision and scorn that can be mustered against them
 
2012-10-24 11:57:03 AM
"You put $90 billion - like 50 years worth of tax breaks - into solar and wind, to Solyndra and Fisker and Tesla and Ener1," he told the president earlier this month in Denver. "I had a friend who said: 'You don't just pick the winners and losers; you pick the losers.' "

Too much trouble to report that Romney lied so hard on this singer that his campaign had to backtrack an hour later? For once in his life, Romney deserves everything he's gotten.
 
2012-10-24 12:07:41 PM
He tried being nice and compromising, and they walked all over him and then complained he wasn't a bigger doormat (2010 unemployment extension, the continued existence of Guantanamo Bay prison, the removal of single-payer as an option for discussion on the healthcare bill). At some point, you have to start hitting back. Good on him.

I'm still of the opinion that he's going to change dramatically in his second term. Not needing to worry about re-election with an improving economy and significantly reduced military involvement means that there's a LOT of leeway to call crap out.

Meh. I think you guys were on to something when you were on the "he didn't say acts of terrorism" line. You should go back to that.

Smug doesn't cut it.

Open hostility and calling Romney a lying sack of shiat is what is needed.

But that's probably too aggressive.

You are so clever tenpounds, you failed to realize submarines are a vessel for transport by water. Neutral buoyancy is still buoyancy. Nice try though.

boat [boht] noun
1. a vessel for transport by water, constructed to provide buoyancy by excluding water and shaped to give stability and permit propulsion.

Republicans tend to believe crazy bullshiat and wild conspiracy theories. They won't accept any conflicting evidence that might change their minds. In fact, they regularly reject educational research, science, nonpartisan media, ANYTHING that goes against their crazy beliefs. What can do you do with people like that, other than mock them mercilessly?
 
2012-10-24 02:36:49 PM
The rhetoric of "Peace" is not an effective counter to "Fear." Obama wants to reduce military spending and make us weak!!! "Snark" is significantly more effective.

More at 11.
 
2012-10-24 02:37:54 PM
When you take sh*t completely out of context and cite 'number of ships' as a proxy for military power, don't be surprised when you get called out like you are a little child. Same goes for:

'you didn't build that'
debts and deficits
number of oil permits on federal lands
cost of oil
calling Libya a terrorist act
apology tours
cuts to Medicare

Mitt deserves to be treated with snark. So does Ryan. So does the whole GOP platform. It's built on manipulation and lies, and it has to stop.

I didn't think politics could ever sink so low. And the surprising thing is that the man claims to be a devout man of God. The Book of Mormon. Really great stuff, if this is the kind of people it churns out.

Isn't "boat" a common colloquialism for submarine? Also, isn't a position on a sub known as the CoB (as in Chief of the Boat)?

I wouldn't exactly call thousands of slack-jawed yokels who'd vote for Darth Vader if he had an (R) next to his name being funded by a handful of paleoconservative billionaires, and given limitless media attention by one outlet, to give the appearance of a populist "uprising"...well, a populist uprising.

Considering God intended women to get raped and impregnated, it's not a far stretch to think God is cool with focusing on zingers rather than policy in a debate.
