The GOP, Romney, knows not the feeling of shame.

When someone will stop at absolutely nothing - even their own shame - you had better start scratching your head about their ethics. Rmoney is (IMHO) much, MUCH worse than Obama because he has utterly zero principle. Zero.

Neither one is getting my vote, but God almighty, GOP. This... THIS was the best and brightest??

The Obvious tag would fit here nicely.

Romney is a complete fraud, a billionaire plutocrat to wants the presidency, well, just because. Maybe Ann demanded it one day: "I want to live in that quant little White House!"

The most sickening fraudulent campaign ever. The number one reason Romney shound't win: We can't encourage this really bad behavior. 

And if a campaign can win like this, forget it. All future campaigns will be awash in lies, deceit and cynicism.

Because nobody EVER died at an embassy or consulate under a Republican president! And how is 'Calling it an act of terror shortly after the attack, and assisting the Libyan government in catching almost every member of the group involved in the attack' covering it up again?

Oh, wait, right. Obama was somehow personally supposed to, within a few hours, mobilize an air-strike and have a C-130 spray gunfire into a crowd when a good chunk of the region is already pissed at us because the Christian fundies can't help waving their cocks at the Muslim fundies.

And if he had done that, the FOX wing would be out in force, denouncing his heavy-handedness. shiat, they were complaining that he got the military involved in Libya at all, even when no lives had been lost.

Yet you don't sound like you think they're following the right code either; forgive me if I'm wrong. They just don't get that living by a moral code isn't cheap or easy, and many of these same people defied said moral code before they reached that stance. It's hard to sympathize with the young when you've been through it already and they still don't listen.

It's just about empathy and understanding. If you recognize that some things are harder than they seem, you can empathize and take the long road to high ground.

People in small towns and the country tell me otherwise. They tell me it's impolite to talk politics or sex when nothing is further than the truth. They say it's important to be polite when they'll happily discuss your flaws when you're not around, or show their prejudice if you're not the kind they're judging. How the fark did I get here? I'm gonna shut up now before I keep grouping people in an effort to better understand them and in turn understand them less.

They keep creeping closer and closer to the road each time they come out and I keep hoping eventually one of them gets clipped with a box truck mirror.

The impact would be about head-level so it certainly wouldn't hurt anything important (aside from the truck, I mean), but it would make a nice sound and be amusing in a Darwin Awards sort of way.

2012-11-02 08:20:33 AM

Skleenar: As part of the attack on Obama and his support for abortion rights, the ads feature a woman who says she is the survivor of a failed abortion and a nurse who says she saved aborted babies born alive.

o_O

The earliest a baby can realistically survive out of the womb is 23 weeks, or about the end of the second trimester, but that's with a really low survival rate and likely birth defects or other complication.

Most places in the US disallow abortions after the first trimester. There are a few that allow them up to 24 weeks, but those are very rare and usually limited to cases where the mother's health is in jeopardy.

So, either this woman is describing something that happened in another country, or to a mother who's life was in danger or is a vanishingly rare occurrence, cited merely for emotional effect.


You're talking about someone in an ad for a Republican. There's a decent chance that she just made the whole thing up.

I would care about that context if not for the fact that Mitt Romney is an absolutely unabashed liar and there's no chance in hell he doesn't support that ad anyway. You know... what with his only actual campaign platform plank being "whatever helps me get votes right this minute".

The fact that the Romney camp isn't actually running the ad is a hollow bit of context considering that it's exactly the sort of shiat he says anyway.

It's similar to gun rights. Pro-gun people don't want any restrictions and pro-abortion people don't want any restrictions. Because they know wherever you draw the line, the other side will still want more restrictions.

What happened to Fast & Furious? The Republicans have acted for a long time like it was the biggest scandal in US history but once the incident in Libya took place, they totally forgot about it. They were like a kid who got bored with a toy once a new one came along. It's almost as if they see governance as a fun game to play rather than serious business for grownups.

Flavor of the week. F&F wasn't panning out so they tried capitalizing on a more current event, especially since it occurred so close to the election. I already knew that they were forcing a non-scandal, but today I heard a pretty good synopsis of the Libya events on NPR and there really is nothing to the story.

That says how much the candidates have lost control of their own message. PACs these days are attempting to shape a candidate's message without the candidate's approval. It is interesting to see how the "I'm with BOB" PACs are projecting their wishing onto the candidate while the "I'm against BOB" PAC's are projecting their fears onto the candidate.

Not really. It's very common to be "pro-gun". Someone who is pro-gun is in in favor of guns. They're not simply against restrictions- they want to have guns, fire guns, etc. They want others to join them in that. The number of people who, by that metric, are pro-abortion is vanishingly small.

That's an amazingly unflattering performance by Mitt. Geezus he comes across as a defensive asshat.

But he does say that he specifically supports a prohibition of abortion. (in certain cases)

/almost exactly what he said and how he said it.

No, it's more like they've been lying for so long, they can't help but lie, even if the truth would better serve their purpose (even though this time it doesn't).

I find this characterization of Romney really distasteful.

He's more the Heisenberg Candidate. And now that people have stopped paying attention to his momentum, we might finally be able to nail down what his positions on the issues are.

There's a radio ad running here about one of the propositions on the ballot; supposed to sound like 2 women discussing the issue over coffee or some such. One tells the other "it says here that this proposition will kill jobs". Says here? Where's here? You mean it says that in your script?

ultraholland: EngineerAU: What happened to Fast & Furious?

Flavor of the week. F&F wasn't panning out so they tried capitalizing on a more current event, especially since it occurred so close to the election. I already knew that they were forcing a non-scandal, but today I heard a pretty good synopsis of the Libya events on NPR and there really is nothing to the story.


I wouldn't say that. There's just nothing to the story that is being pushed on us harder than Clean Coal. Unfortunately, America is REALLY BAD at learning the right lessons from current events, even when we've already learned them from past events. So we'll truck right on with the Narrative and ignore the very important and very real lessons we could apply to the region and to security of embassies and consulates around the world.

People who believe that Romeny and the GOP would support a pro-choice agenda shouldn't be allowed to vote. Undecided (and most partisan) voters are willfully ignorant.

We get the TV ad for the GOP candidate for governor that is, seriously, a bunch of old white guys sitting around a breakfast table complaining that the D candidate is gonna kill jobs.

Oops, my bad. Can't seem to find it on the youtubes, even though I see it as an ad on there about every other time I visit.

And I still don't get why being for abortion is called prochoice. I have yet to see a fetus choose to sign a doctor's release allowing the kid to be killed and vacuumed out of it's house.

Any coincidence that Mitt keeps saber rattling about Iran and wanting to move lockstep with Netanyahu and also believes that the second coming of Jesus is happening soon during a time where there is a mass slaughter of Jews?

Not the ad I thought they were talking about. I'm in western PA and we're getting the deranged Randall Terry anti-Muslim/anti-Obama ads complete with corpse-gore. Real corpses, I should add. Saw that tasty little number at 11pm on the dot last night.

Man is still pissed off they wouldn't let him show aborted fetuses during the Super Bowl, so now he's shiatting things up for people this way.

I've had the misfortune of meeting Terry and firmly believe it is an act - intended to create a revenue stream for himself. He is not a virtuous person at all.

Yeah I wish people would shut up about abortion and talk about less expensive methods of birth control. Abortion isn't half as important as poverty or education.


Many people against abortion are also against sex education and easily accessible birth control.

Since nobody likes abortion and it's been proven that anti-abortion laws don't actually reduce the number of abortions, the two sides of the issue should really be labeled as Anti-Safe-Abortion and Anti-Unsafe-Abortion.

Hell for the last six months or so it seems every political ad has either been Republican X is an elitist fat cat that will kill social security and send your job to China or Democrat X is a baby eating Socialist that is going to tax 100% of your income and abort your children.

badhatharry: t3knomanser: phenn: Just call it pro or anti abortion. That is the subject at hand. I don't understand why people cringe at those terms.

Because nearly no one is actually pro-abortion. Some people admit the practical necessity and the importance of letting women control their reproductive future. Some people are ideologically opposed.

It's similar to gun rights. Pro-gun people don't want any restrictions and pro-abortion people don't want any restrictions. Because they know wherever you draw the line, the other side will still want more restrictions.


Well, yes, except if you want a gun and are having trouble getting one, there's no time limit on that. Not to mention no one picketing outside gun stores.

But if you want or medically need an abortion, and excessive restrictions and aggressive protests have led to few to no doctors in your state performing them, you have a time limit to get yourself somewhere that does. That can be a big burden on someone who's poor and needs to work.

The whole concept of insurance is to pay for other people's shiat and birth control is also required for numerous health conditions, also prevents large growths within a women's uterus.

Reporting from a swing state:

The other day we had a message on our phone, from Fred Thompson the actor/politican, about how Obama was the most pro-abortion president in history. The message was fronted by the Susan B. Anthony group. Which I guess is some B.S. attempt to connect "strong wimmens" with anti-abortion efforts.

Also, there is a billboard up by the interstate about how Obamacare funds abortion, and it has the cutest comical-looking hat-wearing baby (a baby who's at least 6 months old). I laugh every time I see it, then I feel bad for laughing, then I feel confused about how I should feel. Wish I could find a picture of it.

Yeah but you don't see that on bumper stickers. You don't see anti-condom protests. There are no "progesterone ruined my life" or "G-O-D not I-U-D" signs in front of planned parenthood.They framed the birth control argument as an abortion argument so the rest doesn't matter.

I'm saying the conversation needs to be different, regardless of the opinions. The anti-abortion argument is a valid one. Abortion is an extreme solution. Being against any other birth control method is stupid.
