If Mitt can hit the bull's-eye, the rest of the dominoes will fall like a house of cards.

isn't it en passant? Silly subby.

"But sir, no one worries about upsetting a droid."

"That's cause droids don't tear people's arms off when they lose. Mormons have been known to do that."

Another Romney ad released Thursday attacked Obama's suggestion in an interview with MSNBC that he would consider consolidating government agencies under a new "secretary of business" in a second term. The ad portrayed the comment as more big government, saying Obama's "solution to everything is to add another bureaucrat."

Do they not know what consolidate means?

I think the misspelling here is intentional.

How do you make a Romney related analogy involving robots and not have Romney be the robot. It just doesn't seem right.

FTFA: Perhaps no one said it better than 4-year-old Abigael Evans of Fort Collins, Colorado, who -- according to NPR -- cried after listening to more election coverage on the radio and told her mother: "I'm tired of Broncobama and Mitt Romney."

Looks like Romney leads in name recognition among 4-year-olds

/this is bad news...for Broncobama

Nicely done, subby.

And:

President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney plan to hold virtually nonstop events between now and the Tuesday election considered too close to call.

God farking dammit, CNN.

I feel lucky PA must be a foregone conclusion there are basically no POTUS ads running here. Local campaigns have gone full-on crazy with their ads.

Wow! Obscure chess move references. Am I still on fark?
 
2012-11-02 11:36:39 AM
Romney's next move is taking a dump on the chessboard and flying away, declaring victory. CNN will bring in-depth analysis of where the droppings land and claim a stalemate.

They do, but they hope their target market doesn't.
 
2012-11-02 11:59:30 AM
For the analagy to work then a Pawn of Mitt's must take a Pawn of Obama's after it moves two spaces in its opening move. So... how does that work?

Damn Submitter,

That's one damn fine pun.
 
2012-11-02 01:10:08 PM
It's more likely that Romney would declare that the new rule is that all his pieces are queens and all of Obama's pieces are pawns and the media will declare that Romney played an aggressive presidential match of chess and Obama really appeared tired and off his game.

The center is locked and Romney is trying to develop an advantage on one of the wings.

/the right one, since you asked.

2012-11-02 01:52:47 PM
If the chess analogy is applicable, then Mitt Romney SHOULD be decimating President Obama. When one side has extra castles, queens, and pawns, victory should be all be assured.

Mitt Romney has also never been a pawn, Obama had to make it all the way across the board before he could stop being a lowly pawn.

In a world where probably 95% of people don't know how chess pieces move, en passant is obscure.

I played in a chess match many moons ago wherein it was obscure enough to my opponent he cried foul.

Boring. The winner would simply be the person who has played the most chess. I can beat people much more clever than me at chess if they haven't played much of it. Likewise, people much dumber than me can beat me at chess.

Give each person a matching stack of building materials and ask the to build the strongest/longest/tallest tower, bridge or something. That would be entertaining.

No, because the engineers would out build the physicists so that immediatly invalidates it as an intellegence test.

The goal is entertainment value. Romney would wait to see how Obama approached it and would copy what works. Obama would try and make something that also looked nice and would be will to try different things if one approach wasn't working. Romney would be upset with the materials given him and ask he could buy some additional tape or something. Obama be afraid to chew some paper to make some disgusting type of papier-manche if necessary..
