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.

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?

that bosnian sniper: 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.


I dunno. I might be willing to vote for Darth Vader depending on what his policies were. His long years of experience in paramilitary groups gives him unquestionable ability to lead, and as a practical vice-emperor for an entire galaxy he also knows a thing or two about governance. And he can force choke the idiots who blurts out that he wasn't born in the Republic, or Congress when they start in with the "One Term President" thing. But his downfall may be family issues... children out of wedlock, killed his wife vicariously, no contact with his children for 20 years...

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.

TsukasaK: jst3p: They felt perfectly justified in gouging settlers heading west when they weren't outright killing them, women and children and all in order to take their shiat.

That sounded pretty far fetched, but then I went to read the article. Did you catch this bit?

Scholars still debate whether senior Mormon leadership, including Brigham Young, directly instigated the massacre or if responsibility lies with the local leaders of southern Utah.


If you are interested this is a great, but terrifying read:

but there have been plenty of other observers who were critical of the president's use of Seinfeldian set-ups and snarky punch lines to score points about military spending and the state of U.S.-Russia relations.

Tough sh*t.

A:) Do you farking blame him at this point? He tries actual diplomatic politics and got nothing but birth certificate-type bullshiat.

B:) Next thing you know, Romney is suddenly Obama, I'd be pissed, too.

C:) Finally, Romney was making the most idiotic, childish statements ever. Obama is a father, he probably slipped into 'Dad' mode automatically.

D:) One more thing: Being an asshole is the Republican way now, why can't the Dems throw that back?

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.


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.

I_Am_Weasel: tenpoundsofcheese: Precious Roy's Horse Dividers: tenpoundsofcheese: 0bama said that we now have boats that go underwater.

What types of boats are those?

Oooohhh is this going to be the talking point to deflect from Romney's route to the sea failure? At least it is fresher than 57 states

It isn't a deflection, it is pointing out that our Commander in Chief thinks we have ships that go underwater.

Corpsemen.

You're going to have to do much better than that...

ship [ship] Show IPA noun, verb, shipped, ship·ping.
noun
1. a vessel, especially a large oceangoing one propelled by sails or engines.

or

ship (shp)
n.
1. a. A vessel of considerable size for deep-water navigation.


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)?

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.

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.

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.

"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.
