GameSprocket: treecologist: FTFA:

"Romney is more of a flexible flip-flopper than Obama. He has more influence over the most intransigent element in the Washington equation House Republicans. He's more likely to get big stuff done. "

So flip-flopping is a character trait you want in a leader now.

I didn't believe your quote was an actual quote so I checked for myself. I can't believe that someone would actually offer that as a reason to vote for Romney. The article is a better argument for voting the Republicans out of the House.


They are now at the stage where bluffing (that they have good attributes) hasn't worked. Now they have to pretend their failings are actually selling points.

karnal: Win or lose, Obama should be in pretty good shape....just the other day Hugo Chávez offered him a job in his cabinet as his Propaganda Czar. I think former president Obama will be alright.

So his argument is that the House Republicans are such a group of intransigent babies that only Romney would have a chance of getting anything significant through Congress. So vote Republican.

I've got a better idea. Vote Obama, and work on reducing the tea party contingent in the House this year and in 2014. Then, not only would the president be able to "get things done," but they would actually be things that are good for the country.

Failing that, I'll take four more years of gridlock (and the full implementation of the ACA) over handing the GOP the keys again and allowing them to drive the country back over a cliff again.

I_C_Weener: Well, Bill Clinton did say


IClinton's uses topical context. Pretty typical for him.

Here's a few you can use yourself.

"Boy, those Detroit Tigers stunk out the World Series, *pause* but that's nothing like the failure that we will see if Romney gets elected."

or

"There's a new study that shows that if you watch horror shows you will lose weight, *pause* but, I think we should just skip a few hamburgers rather than suffer the horror of a Romney presidency."

I read that entire article to say:

Elect Mitt Romney because his nature of doing anything to be President means he will violate his campaign promises and work as a partisan by making the obstinate Congress Republicans work with him because they don't want to make a Republican President look bad.

Seriously?! What. The. Fark.

Well, Bill Clinton did say that a Romney presidency would be worse than Hurricane Sandy.  So, basically, the Democratic talking point appears to be that Romney will flood your cities, slaughter your resdients (59+ in the Caribbean and 15+ in the states), will cut your power, and leave you damp and cold inside.

By DAVID BROOKS
Published: November 1, 2010

The new Republicans may distrust government, but this will be a Republican class with enormous legislative experience. Tea Party hype notwithstanding, most leading G.O.P. candidates either served in state legislatures or previously in Washington. The No Compromise stalwarts like Senator Jim DeMint have a big megaphone but few actual followers within the Senate.

Over all, if it is won, a Republican House majority will be like a second marriage. Less ecstasy, more realism. Link

So the only way to get the House to work for the country instead of against it would be to elect Romney. I thought we didn't approve of negotiating with terrorists.

By himself, Mittens might be tolerable, but with the current Republicans around? F**k no. I'd like to keep my vagina to myself, thank you very much.

So, vote for a Republican, or deal with another four years of obstruction where nothing gets done? That's essentially blackmail. We expect national politicians to put the good of the country ahead of the good of their party. Aside from the fact that I disagree with many of their policies, I am for damn sure not going to reward Republicans for acting like spoiled children who didn't get their way for the last four years.

Look your children or even a friend's child in the eye and tell him why he should go die in Iran. That war will last longer than Iraq did. I do hope you have prepared yourself and/or your children to go to war in Iran, because mine won't. I guess I should invest in yellow ribbon companies in case Romney does win.


Time to get the ribbon back on my car. It worked well in 2003.

And the correct answer is "Option B: Vote for Mitt Romney"

Article lays out nice even-handed matter of fact analysis. I'm good either way, accepting of either eventuality, with preference for Mitt Romney.

Actually, book it. Done. Mitt Romney.

Duke Phillips' Singing Bears: So in other words, Mr. Brooks, if Obama gets elected we can expect nothing to get done because the Republicans in congress will be... dun dun DAAAAAAAAAAA!!!! Obstructionist A-Holes.

So, lemme see if I've got this right...

The GOP filibustered everything the President tried to do, so that they could get their way.
The Democrats used Republican ideas to get the few slivers of that group they could shave off to get SOMETHING done.
The GOP now screams that nothing got done, and it's the fault of the democrats.
They also say that we should elect more of them, so that they'll have even more power to 'not' do things, but they won't 'not' do that if we elect Their man for the big seat....


Do I have this right? I mean, before I laugh in their faces?

Dusk-You-n-Me: On foreign policy matters, for example, Bush has attracted the policy wonk version of the 1927 Yankees. You look at the people who will fill key slots in his administration, from Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice down through less-prominent advisors such as Bob Zoellick and Paul Wolfowitz. They are the best out there. Link
