So farking what? W had an IQ of 2.6
 
2012-11-02 11:54:52 AM
Yes, I could see how Republicans could mistake "attack Obama on his presidential record" to mean "attack Obama on his GPA during college"

Or is it that blaming Obama for the current economic successes isn't working out for you?

The 2.6 grade can't be confirmed, is contradicted by some evidence, and it doesn't say anything about the courses, professors and associations Obama was immersed in during his two-year stay in Columbia.

Ha ha ha. Fantastic. We have no idea whether this is true, there is a good chance it's not but still FLASH TRAFFIC!

And being a donor, even a $2,500 donor (watch out, we got a bad ass over here) doesn't get you transcript access to the student body. it maybe gets you an engraved brick somewhere.

With that GPA, there's still truth in the statement.

Look, even if Barry got through school because of quotas, last I heard there is no GPA requirement for the White House. He's not unqualified for the office, he just seems to be in bit over his head, or at least the people he surrounds himself with are and they are the ones that run the executive branch day-to-day. The economy isn't forward fast enough, radically raising taxes won't help that or our debt issues in a significant way, and speak of the debt about the only thing Obama seems capable of doing with it is making it bigger. Time for a change.
 
2012-11-02 12:59:15 PM
Grade inflation, people. A 2.6 at Columbia in 1980 is equivalent to a 3.8 today at Northwest South Carolina State Used-To-Be-A-Teacher's College.

hdhale: The economy isn't forward fast enough, radically raising taxes won't help that or our debt issues in a significant way, and speak of the debt about the only thing Obama seems capable of doing with it is making it bigger. Time for a change.


That is patently retarded. When Obama was elected, only morons thought he could fix everything quickly like he was some kind of messiah. No one could have. People point to Reagan's miraculous recovery, but that was completely different. Reagan didn't come into office with banks failing left and right, a housing bubble having popped and economies around the world crumbling. Reagan inherited a stubbed toe. Obama inherited multiple compound fractures.

So any realistic person was expecting almost EXACTLY what has happened. A little time to turn around the economy, and then slow steady growth. Anyone who thinks this could have been fixed in three and a half years is a bullshiatter or is just ignorant.

As to the debt, yeah, it got bigger. Obama put two unpaid for wars, a massive tax cut and Medicare Plan B on the books. Bush kept those off the books, so things did not look as bleak during his run.

So you think, wrongly, that the economy would have been fixed if only someone who knew what they were doing had been president. And your answer to that imagined scenario is to put in a man who is famous for profiting off the misery of others, outsourcing jobs and killing companies. And he wants to implement most if not all of the same policies that got us in the mess in the first place. George W Bush II - Financial Boogaloo?

2012-11-02 01:44:36 PM
so, this is your line of attack - that obama is stupid? really? your'e going with that?
 
2012-11-02 01:45:51 PM
I have many conservative family members who truly resent being called racists, but any time they start herping and derping about Obama's grades, I have no other choice. Only a racist gives a damn about this stuff.

I've heard the argument break down two ways.

1. Affirmative action: They'll swear Obama's clearly borderline retarded, and the only sensible conclusion is that he got into Harvard because he was unfairly handed an opportunity that should have gone to a smarter, more qualified white person.
2. Scary black ideas. In this instance, they're not claiming he did badly in school, but they're sure he studied dangerous liberal ideas, and probably got high grades from radical professors.

The idea that anyone who doesn't already hate Obama would change their opinion of him based on either of these factors is ridiculous. Anybody who feels Obama has governed as an intelligent person isn't going to suddenly change based on grades from years ago. And only those who already project all the stereotypes of "angry scary black guy from the ghetto" onto the president are going to care whether or not he studied critical race theory because it's one more stupid bubble in their crazy "black people coming to get all the white folks" flow chart that's logic so insane and nonsensical, only the herpest of the derp can even attempt to explain it.

A man walked into a very high-tech bar. As he sat down on a stool he noticed that the bartender was a robot. The robot clicked to attention and asked, "Sir, what will you have?"

The man thought a moment then replied, "A martini please."

The robot clicked a couple of times and mixed the best martini the man had ever had.

The robot then asked, "Sir, what is your IQ?"

The man answered "oh, about 164."

The robot then proceeded to discuss the 'theory of relativity' 'inter-steller space travel', 'the latest medical breakthrough', etc.......The man was most impressed.

He left the bar but thought he would try a different tact.

He returned and took a seat, again the robot clicked and asked what he would have? "A martini please."

Again it was superb. The robot again asked "what is your IQ, sir?"

This time the man answered, "Oh about 100″. So the robot started discussing NASCAR racing, the latest basketball scores, and what to expect the Dodgers to do this weekend.

The guy had to try it one more time.. So he left, returned and took a stool. Again a martini, and the question, "What is your IQ?"??

This time the man drawled out "Uh.... Bout 50″.

The robot clicked then leaned close and very slowly asked,

"A-r-e y-o-u p-e-o-p-l-e s-t-i-l-l h-a-p-p-y w-i-t-h O-B-A-M-A ?"

Let's be clear, Romney has a chance. Nate Silver puts it around 20%. Think about that for a moment. There is a 20% chance Mitt Romney will be elected POTUS in a few days. Now I'm with you, I absolutely think Obama will and should win. But I think there is something to learn about the country that a candidate like Mitt Romney has a 20% chance of winning. And that only considers the electoral college. Romney has a 48% chance of winning the popular vote. There's something to learn about the country there too.

Put another way:

Re-read the post you just said "This" to. "And he wants to implement most if not all of the same policies that got us in the mess in the first place. George W Bush II - Financial Boogaloo?"

CorporatePerson: but they're sure he studied dangerous liberal ideas,


Do you know how they know this? Because Obama admitted as much in his own book:

"To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structured feminists and punk-rock performance poets. We smoked cigarettes and wore leather jackets. At night in the dorms, we discussed neocolonialism, Franz Fanon, Eurocentrism and patriarchy. When we ground out our cigarettes in the hallway carpets or set our stereos so loud the walls began to shake, we were resisting bourgeois society's stifling conventions. We weren't indifferent, or careless, or insecure. We were alienated.

But this strategy alone couldn't provide the distance I wanted, from Joyce or my past. After all, there were thousands of so called campus radicals, most of them white and tenured and happily tolerant. No, it remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names."

The reasons to see his college transcripts are pretty fluid. It depends on what the current line of attack is. Maybe it shows that he got in as a foreign exchange student (hint: transcripts don't say that). Maybe it shows he got financial aid from the V.I. Lenin Fund for Glorious Future Mulatto Leaders (hint: transcripts don't say that either). Maybe it shows that he barely passed. Maybe it shows that he got terrible grades in good old American classes like "Capitalism 101" and great grades in classes I made up because I have no idea what college curricula look like. Classes such as "Destroying the Hegemony of the US" and "Advanced Stalinist Theory". Maybe it shows that he got good grades, which proves that he is an elitist and out of touch!

MaudlinMutantMollusk: Where does Kevin Bacon enter into this?


If the Republicans lose, it will be in some part because of many ignorant and insensitive comments made by Republicans about rape. Just like Texas Governor candidate, Clayton Williams, wrecked his own campaign in 1990 by making a joke about rape. Ann Richards won the election and with her as the incumbent in 1994, Dubya was able to run against her and win. It was his prominence as Texas Governor that allowed him to run for Presidrlent in 2000 and win*. His eight years as President inspired Oliver Stone to make the film W, the same director who made JFK which featured Kevin Bacon.

The man thought a moment then replied, "A martini please."

The robot clicked a couple of times and mixed the best martini the man had ever had.

The robot then asked, "Sir, what is your IQ?"

The man answered "oh, about 164."

The robot then proceeded to discuss the 'theory of relativity' 'inter-steller space travel', 'the latest medical breakthrough', etc.......The man was most impressed.

He left the bar but thought he would try a different tact.

He returned and took a seat, again the robot clicked and asked what he would have? "A martini please."

Again it was superb. The robot again asked "what is your IQ, sir?"

This time the man answered, "Oh about 100″. So the robot started discussing NASCAR racing, the latest basketball scores, and what to expect the Dodgers to do this weekend.

I understand that most people here have absolutely no problem with Obama's passage in his book. But that wasn't my original point.

I was pointing out that there are reasons to want to look at the presidents records other than racism.


So on a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being "that's silly" and 10 being "certainly a possibility") how likely do you think it is for President Obama to dismantle capitalism and implement a communist economic system in his second term?

Followup question, how afraid of you of Obama coming after you for reparations during a second term?

You realize that those are another variant of the internet arguments over whether Batman could beat Superman in a fight and essentially none of our presidents have actually taken a test and released the results, right?

I mean, not that it matters either way, since what IQ measures isn't actually particularly relevant to the presidency in the first place (actually kinda useless the majority of the time, in all seriousness), but just making sure that people are aware that even if the person posting this isn't making it up, someone at some point was just pulling it out of their ass in the first place.

//A score of 150 in reality means that you have enough facility with pattern recognition that the test ceases to be a reliable test of what it's testing, btw. It's only meaningful as a ranking system to about three stds, which comes out to 145 on the usual metric.

Sure, like partisan hackery for instance.

There are no relevant reasons to look at anything Obama did beyond his first term as POTUS. You use records and transcripts and things to predict how someone will be. Obama actually was POTUS. You don't have to predict. You can actually know.

internut scholar: I'm sure some people may have a problem with their president seeking out Marxist professors when he attended college.


Right. So during the first election people were super concerned that electing Obama would bring Marxism to the U.S. But again, rather than try to predict if Obama would bring Marxism to the U.S. as POTUS based on his background, we can actually know. Obama has been POTUS for nearly 4 years and is the current POTUS. Do we live in a Marxist society? No? Question answered.

Ann Richards won the election and with her as the incumbent in 1994, Dubya was able to run against her and win.

I hear Romney was exposed to the teachings of a man who truly believed theological monarchy to be the most desirable form of government from an early age. During his young adulthood, he even spent time trying to spread this man's ideas abroad. Not only that, but he continues to donate large sums of money to organizations friendly to this belief.

They found out he was an American representative, and they swarmed on him. Every single one of them pleaded with him not to allow Romney to be elected, for the good of the world economy. They were scared to death of another GOP administration in the United States.

Romney was a bishop in a church that didn't consider black people human beings until the 70's.

I don't really believe that has jack to do with anything in 2012. Similarly, college is where you're supposed to go to learn about controversial ideas. This is a good thing.

Obama admitted it in his book, and anyone who's paid attention to how he's governed would see he's rather corporate friendly (as evidenced by Wall Street and corporate America's record profits). I just personally feel that the people who are still terrified of an American communist takeover in the year 2012 are silly and should not be taken seriously. We spent 2008 talking about Jermiah Wright and radical Marxism, and it turned out to be a losing issue nobody cares about other than the people who've thought Obama is Satan since they first saw him.

I have always wondered what it is like to be a troll with the IQ of a potato? Do you actually KNOW you are an attention whoring troll, or do you really think that you are saying something of importance? I mean, if you DO think that you are saying something worth reading, then your family needs to have you medically examined, because you need to be in some kind of assisted living facility with the rest of the people who are mentally disabled. However, if you DO know that what you are saying is completely idiotic, yet you do it anyway...if that is the case, I hope you are taking some Ambien every evening, because that is the ONLY way you could sleep at night...

They were very similar.

Link

Sen. John F. Kerry's grade average at Yale University was virtually identical to President Bush's record there, despite repeated portrayals of Kerry as the more intellectual candidate during the 2004 presidential campaign.

Kerry had a cumulative average of 76 and got four Ds his freshman year - in geology, two history courses and political science, The Boston Globe reported Tuesday.

His grades improved with time, and he averaged an 81 his senior year and earned an 89 - his highest grade - in political science as a senior.

"I always told my dad that D stood for distinction," Kerry said in a written response to reporters' questions. He said he has previously acknowledged focusing more on learning to fly than studying.

Under Yale's grading system in effect at the time, grades between 90 and 100 equaled an A, 80-89 a B, 70-79 a C, 60 to 69 a D, and anything below that was a failing grade.

In 1999, The New Yorker magazine published a transcript showing Bush had a cumulative grade average of 77 his first three years at Yale, and a similar average under a non-numerical rating system his senior year.

Bush's highest grade at Yale was an 88 in anthropology, history and philosophy. He received one D in his four years, a 69 in astronomy, and improved his grades after his freshman year, the transcript showed.

Kerry, a Democrat, previously declined to release the transcript, which was included in his Navy records. He gave the Navy permission to release the documents last month, the Globe reported.

Kerry graduated from Yale in 1966, Bush in 1968.


Then again, after Yale, Kerry went to Vietnam and then dedicated his life to public service in government, while Bush did mountains of cocaine and boozed his ass off for a couple of decades.

Kerry grew more intelligent, while Bush destroyed a shiatload of neurons.

lennavan: internut scholar: I disagree, in politics you don't get to where you want to be in one day, or one administration.

So, if I follow, Obama's great big Marxist Socialism plot is to get elected to a first term, pass absolutely nothing socialist at all to lull us into electing him to a second term where BAM-O he can hit us with some Kenyan Kommunism?

That's a very concerning thought you have there.


Well, the fact that has governed to the right of every president since Hoover is just proof that he's a double-secret Communist who will actually physically transform into Josef Stalin at the beginning of his second term, like some kind of mentally deficient Final Fantasy villain.

Mitt Romney was speaking at a roof top event in Harrisburg Pennsylvania when he made a very odd statement about President Obama. Romney said that President Obama "spent too much time at Harvard University" which is an apparent jab at his liberal tendencies and trying to call him an academic snob.

While this is an attack that is heard kind of often among Republican circles it is odd for Romney because he also went to Harvard University, and spent a year more than Obama did there.

Romney enrolled in a four-year program at Harvard in 1971, eventually earning a joint JD and MBA and graduating cum laude in 1975. In 1988, Obama began attending Harvard Law School. He spent three years there, eventually becoming president of the Harvard Law Review before graduating magna cum laude and receiving his JD in 1991.

So to sum it up, Romney spent four years there and Obama spent three years there. Even more ironic is that Obama graduated with a better GPA than Romney did.

I'd tell you how that works, but you wouldn't understand.AdolfOliverPanties: I thought the mantra was "no one ever saw Barack Obama at Columbia."

With that GPA, there's still truth in the statement.

Look, even if Barry got through school because of quotas, last I heard there is no GPA requirement for the White House. He's not unqualified for the office, he just seems to be in bit over his head, or at least the people he surrounds himself with are and they are the ones that run the executive branch day-to-day. The economy isn't forward fast enough, radically raising taxes won't help that or our debt issues in a significant way, and speak of the debt about the only thing Obama seems capable of doing with it is making it bigger. Time for a change.

internut scholar: Lenny_da_Hog: friend of mine is a policy wonk for a very large energy concern. He went to Munich two weeks ago for a conference with other energy producers.

They found out he was an American representative, and they swarmed on him. Every single one of them pleaded with him not to allow Romney to be elected, for the good of the world economy. They were scared to death of another GOP administration in the United States.

I don't doubt that is true. What may be good for other countries interests may not be a Romney presidency.

Seems to me if Romney would make good on his promise for North American energy independence, then that would be bad for European and Asian energy companies.

But I'm not voting for their president, I'm voting for POTUS.


This conversation can't be confirmed, and it's contradicted by some evidence and it doesn't say anything about the economies, leaders and legislative systems that Munich was immersed in during its two-year White Rose movement during the wind up to WWII.

internut scholar: CorporatePerson: So on a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being "that's silly" and 10 being "certainly a possibility") how likely do you think it is for President Obama to dismantle capitalism and implement a communist economic system in his second term?

0 it wouldn't happen.

That doens't mean I don't want to know what his ideology is.


I told someone else this, I'll tell you too. If Obama wins reelection the world will go on. I will be just fine. I just think Romney would do a better job as president.


In a vacuum you may be correct. Regardless of what partisans on either side think, they would probably be remarkably similar. I wouldn't discount that a Romney presidency would be better in theory.

However, in practice, my fear is him in office is that the far right will have a guy that will play ball with them. If you think that the Republican controlled House is anything less than a bizarre cesspoolish fusion of religious/economic zealotry then either you or I are living in a bizarre fantasy land. Regardless of if Republicans are more correct on the fiscal front or not, the fact that they are incapable of compromise or rational discussion makes them the real "dangerous radicals" Actions occurring today speak much louder than what may or may not have happened decades ago.

No, you don't seem to understand the point I'm trying to make. We aren't arguing on how he presided. We're arguing about what evidence is relevant in drawing conclusions.

Mitt Romney bullied some kid long ago in high school. Mitt Romney was also in an elected executive office, he was the governor. To predict how Romney will act as POTUS, one of those is relevant and the other is not.

Barack Obama did some stuff long ago in college. He is also the current POTUS and has been for nearly four years. To predict how Obama will act as POTUS in the next term, one of those is relevant and the other is not.

When I voted for Obama in 2008 I expected that he would govern as a center left moderate. Which is exactly as he has done. With Romney - based on his record as Governor and how he has managed his campaign - I have absolutely no idea how he will govern. He has no moral base or character. So I voted for Obama again (absentee).

internut scholar: CorporatePerson: but they're sure he studied dangerous liberal ideas,

Do you know how they know this? Because Obama admitted as much in his own book:

"To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structured feminists and punk-rock performance poets. We smoked cigarettes and wore leather jackets. At night in the dorms, we discussed neocolonialism, Franz Fanon, Eurocentrism and patriarchy. When we ground out our cigarettes in the hallway carpets or set our stereos so loud the walls began to shake, we were resisting bourgeois society's stifling conventions. We weren't indifferent, or careless, or insecure. We were alienated.

But this strategy alone couldn't provide the distance I wanted, from Joyce or my past. After all, there were thousands of so called campus radicals, most of them white and tenured and happily tolerant. No, it remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names."

Barrack Obama - Dreams of My Father, page 101


If we can believe Paul Ryan doesn't REALLY subscribe to Ayn Rand's philosophy, despite being on record as saying this, just 7 years ago:

(1:45) I just want to speak to you a little bit about Ayn Rand and what she meant to me in my life and [in] the fight we're engaged here in Congress. I grew up on Ayn Rand, that's what I tell people..you know everybody does their soul-searching, and trying to find out who they are and what they believe, and you learn about yourself.

(2:01) I grew up reading Ayn Rand and it taught me quite a bit about who I am and what my value systems are, and what my beliefs are. It's inspired me so much that it's required reading in my office for all my interns and my staff. We start with Atlas Shrugged. People tell me I need to start with The Fountainhead then go to Atlas Shrugged [laughter]. There's a big debate about that. We go to Fountainhead, but then we move on, and we require Mises and Hayek as well.

"I always go back to... Francisco d'Anconia's speech [in Atlas Shrugged] on money when I think about monetary policy."
(2:23) But the reason I got involved in public service, by and large, if I had to credit one thinker, one person, it would be Ayn Rand. And the fight we are in here, make no mistake about it, is a fight of individualism versus collectivism.

(2:38) In almost every fight we are involved in here, on Capitol Hill, whether it's an amendment vote that I'll take later on this afternoon, or a big piece of policy we're putting through our Ways and Means Committee, it is a fight that usually comes down to one conflict: individualism vs. collectivism.

(2:54) And so when you take a look at where we are today, ah, some would say we're on offense, some would say we're on defense, I'd say it's a little bit of both. And when you look at the twentieth-century experiment with collectivism-that Ayn Rand, more than anybody else, did such a good job of articulating the pitfalls of statism and collectivism-you can't find another thinker or writer who did a better job of describing and laying out the moral case for capitalism than Ayn Rand.

(3: 21) It's so important that we go back to our roots to look at Ayn Rand's vision, her writings, to see what our girding, under-grounding [sic] principles are. I always go back to, you know, Francisco d'Anconia's speech (at Bill Taggart's wedding) on money when I think about monetary policy. And then I go to the 64-page John Galt speech, you know, on the radio at the end, and go back to a lot of other things that she did, to try and make sure that I can check my premises so that I know that what I'm believing and doing and advancing are square with the key principles of individualism...

(6:53) Is this an easy fight? Absolutely not...But if we're going to actually win this we need to make sure that we're solid on premises, that our principles are well-defended, and if we want to go and articulately defend these principles and what they mean to our society, what they mean for the trends that we set internationally, we have to go back to Ayn Rand. Because there is no better place to find the moral case for capitalism and individualism than through Ayn Rand's writings and works.


Just because Obama studied and discussed certain subjects (as he says, in an attempt to fit in) doesn't mean he subscribed to them.

Paul Ryan, on the other hand, actually required his staff to read Ayn Rand. But he now says he doesn't really think all that stuff that he said recently. Things like "

"In almost every fight we are involved in here, on Capitol Hill...it is a fight that usually comes down to one conflict: individualism vs. collectivism...That is why there is no more fight that is more obvious between the differences of these two conflicts than Social Security. Social Security right now is a collectivist system, it's a welfare transfer system."

Nah, that's fine. But Obama consorted with radicals in college! HORROR!

idk. Those bomb bosses where you have to kill all of them at once, or any remaining dude will just ressurect all of his friends are bunk. And in the very last area (literally, the last screen before you fight ex-death) there's a boss you can optionally fight. I have never beaten him, and I made neo-ex-death look like little orphan annie.

Otherwise, yep. It's all job management and good planning. If you can't win, it's because you weren't doing the fight properly, not because your just underleveled. Really well made game.

internut scholar: Dr Dreidel: I read Karl Marx in a college class the week before we read Reagan's Challenger speech.

Did you also chose your friends carefully? Were you resisting bourgeois society's stifling conventions?


I like to think I choose (still) my friends carefully. And yes, I delight in subverting or defying social conventions. Of course, I'm an IT guy with a ponytail, so...

Maybe none of that bothers you, perhaps you are more sympathetic to Marxism than another voter?

Probably. Marx was on to something, sociologically speaking (his economics...rely a bit on altruism and people spontaneously spurning greedy or political-power-consolidating tendencies). But I recognize that I'm more liberal than many voters (I'd put myself at around a 70, if 0 is "full-on fascism" and 100 is "pure Marxism"). I've also got a libertarian streak, as I suspect many of us do (even if we don't like calling it that). So what?

And even if Obama was a full-on Marxist (which is a very silly postulate), he was duly elected. The fact that a Marxist is polling so well after a full Marxist term would seem to indicate that Americans are fine with Marxism, and YOU'RE out of touch (or, that Obama is as "out-of-touch" as half of America). But again, Obama's been as right/center-right as Clinton (probably righter)

I understand that most people here have absolutely no problem with Obama's passage in his book. But that wasn't my original point.

I was pointing out that there are reasons to want to look at the presidents records other than racism.


Because of who he was in college? Yeah, run with that. Apply that same dogged research-based criticism of all presidential candidates. For funsies, do it historically - you review their college lives, I'll review their political records. Let's see which one of us can better match a president with their policies.

Which was, I don't think you guys are right when you scream racism because someone wants to know something about a politician's back ground. I don't discount that there are racists that would use anything to get the "N word" out of there. I know they exists. But they exists on both sides of the isle.
Sometimes people just want some background information.


NO one is screaming racism. Your premise of Obama "veering left" is being questioned.

Here, I'l make it easy for you.

Obama has embraced virtually every significant aspect of Bush's national security strategy. The current administration has signed off on warrantless wiretapping and has claimed the authority to start wars even in the face of explicit congressional opposition. The White House has hid behind a shroud of extreme secrecy, invoking the Espionage Act against whistleblowers and stonewalling torture investigation by revising the Freedom of Information Act through executive order. The FBI has continued its crackdown on dissenters and infiltrations of peaceful political groups. Obama has even formalized the most extreme Bush-era claim of executive power -- the authority to detain American citizens indefinitely without charge. His administration has gone even further to claim the president can kill any suspected terrorist in the world by drone bombing, describing his personal mental calculation over such decisions as "due process."


Sounds like a Pinko Commie Marxist -Leftist to me.

internut scholar: rufus-t-firefly: If Obama has Marxist leanings because of a few sentences, then Paul Ryan is a hardcore Objectivist because of a detailed speech and policy proposals.

I'd rather trust someone with Marxist "sympathies" than someone who was devoted to Ayn Rand enough to give a speech to THE ATLAS SOCIETY and require his staff read her books. Oh, and give the books as gifts.

Good, that is exactly what I want. People should get exactly who they vote for. If that's how you think, be honest about it. I'm pretty right wing. I don't deny it.


The point. You missed it.

Unless you're completely fine with Ayn Rand and her "Virtue of Selfishness," in which case I truly hope you never are in need through no fault of your own.

Actually yes I would.

See? That's not so hard. Just say what you mean, if other people like it they will follow you.

Why is it that the left always have to reword every program and objective they have? I don't care that Obama gravitated towards leftist his whole life I just want people to know about it so that they can make their own judgment call. If that works for you then do it, if not, at least you know.

For the past 4 years, Obama has sold himself as a moderate centrist and has governed like one too. I am voting for him expecting 4 more years of this behavior.

Why do you keep saying he's being dishonest by not selling himself as a Marxist radical liberal? Where is this dramatic left turn you keep referring to? The only evidence you're providing is a paragraph from his book about the time he was in college.

You can just admit that and speculation is all you got.

Simple. They see all blah people as stupid. The fact that one of them is the president and leader of the free world galls morans like this to no end, because the thought of someone so obviously inferior to them being any sort of leader is something their tiny little minds cannot reconcile.

internut scholar: rufus-t-firefly: Citations?

I cited the president's own words, where he wanted to seek out the Marxists professors. It was in his book, I posted the referenced passage up thread.


"To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structured feminists and punk-rock performance poets. We smoked cigarettes and wore leather jackets. At night in the dorms, we discussed neocolonialism, Franz Fanon, Eurocentrism and patriarchy. When we ground out our cigarettes in the hallway carpets or set our stereos so loud the walls began to shake, we were resisting bourgeois society's stifling conventions. We weren't indifferent, or careless, or insecure. We were alienated.

But this strategy alone couldn't provide the distance I wanted, from Joyce or my past. After all, there were thousands of so called campus radicals, most of them white and tenured and happily tolerant. No, it remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names."

It seems disingeuous and/or misleading to state baldly that "he wanted to seek out the Marxists (sic) professors" when that was one group in a laundry list of outsiders he named to illustrate his thinking at the time. Context matters.

Look, you're a far rightist, we get it. You still have not, even from your far right position, been able to point to one single policy position or one action Obama has taken as president that indicates even left-of-center positioning, let alone hard left. If all you're concerned about is what he was doing in college, well, fark, he wrote about it, in that book that you keep harping on. If that's what the coverup is...

And like I said, I already know what is going to happen.

So here you go, 1st off, Affordable Care Act. That is a turn to the left. We have now established that government is going to dictate our health insurance issues to us. This is just the 1st step.

Then you should utterly reject Ayn Rand and anyone who professes her as his reason for entering public service and credits her for teaching him what his values and beliefs are. If Paul Ryan was telling the truth to the Atlas Society, he believes you're a farking sap for giving someone a hand and volunteering to help people after a disaster. Ayn Rand definitely would think you were pathetic.

I grew up reading Ayn Rand and it taught me quite a bit about who I am and what my value systems are, and what my beliefs are. It's inspired me so much that it's required reading in my office for all my interns and my staff.

But the reason I got involved in public service, by and large, if I had to credit one thinker, one person, it would be Ayn Rand.

It's so important that we go back to our roots to look at Ayn Rand's vision, her writings, to see what our girding, under-grounding [sic] principles are.

Because there is no better place to find the moral case for capitalism and individualism than through Ayn Rand's writings and works.


And yet you'd be happy to let a man like that become president if something should happen to Mitt Romney?

If you really DO vote your values, you'd reject Objectivism as intrinsically evil.

Not only did the (R)'s get what they wanted, they stalled real liberal (lefty) ideals for at least a decade. No one's gonna want to re-fight health care any day soon, right after we got the ACA. There are liberals out there who support repeal of the ACA for just that reason.

Well if you're a big Ayn Rand fan, the ideal plan would be for the villainous poors to die in the street for not being bootstrappy/resourceful enough to afford insurance.

But if you think Obama's plan is too leftist so you're gonna vote for the guy he stole it from (who also took a hard left in the debates extolling the virtues of government regulation, speaking out against tax cuts for the successful wealthy job creators, and vowing to do away with preexisting conditions) then I don't know what to tell you other than watch less Fox.

So you're for it. You just think it's too expensive. A single F-22 Raptor costs the military over $400 million. I certainly hope in your discussion of what is and is not economical, you have factored in enormous reductions in military spending. Because I'm thinkin we could cut three F-22's from the budget and use that $1 Billion to subsidize green energy until it is economical. I imagine Russia would still not invade if we were down 3 F-22's.

I dunno, man. Obama has managed to reduce the deficit. Albeit, not as much as I'd like (I'd kind of like to see it _closed_), but given that he can't raise revenue without the cooperation of congress, which can't even pass a budget, and has achieved it all through increasing internal efficiency and cutting costs on the operational end I do think he deserves some credit.

Also, given that Romney's stated plan for killing the deficit is literally mathematically impossible (the total sum of all deductions is less than 10% of the deficit, since he's promised to cut no programs and raise no taxes that's literally impossible, not just the "too hard" meaning of impossible usually used in politics), he's demonstrated no real grasp of finance beyond the principle of leverage and conversion of long-term assets for short-term gain ("vulture capitalism") and his backers explicitly want to broaden the deficit... well, let's just say that it puts my mild discomfort with Obama's sometimes not-hugely-effective approach to budgeting in perspective.

PBS isn't really "funded" in the traditional sense. They get a few million nationwide for specific educational program, but the network itself is primarily "funded" by giving it a chunk of the EM spectrum in which to broadcast. Can't really convert that one to quick cash, man.

We are probably going to have to default on our debt. before things get better.

Question, you think Obama will?


Given that a huge chunk of the economy relies very directly on the US's central bank having a good credit rating, default's not gonna happen. Maybe deferred payment on some bonds, but that's about it.

This pretty much sums up this thread. The Fark Progressive Brigade does not ask questions of Dear Leader, and neither should you.

I hope you are right. I really do.

It was nice chatting with you all. But it's now Beer:30, and you thought I was full of derp now, you should see me hurr on some suds.

Good luck on Tues comrades. If Romney wins I will be back to say hi, if he loses I will be in my bunker planning Palin 16'.

Maud Dib: internut scholar: lennavan: Who the fark is actually against green energy, except for people who own oil companies?

Me. Me. It just isn't economical yet. Maybe in a few hundred years, but unfortunately I don't think we are going to see it.

Wind power accounted for 6.9% of the electricity generated in Texas during 2011.


I could tell you all about how coal pays for that, but you would just post a lol cat, and defeat my entire arguement.

internut scholar: CorporatePerson: But he's going to increase military spending while cutting further into revenues? What makes you think his plans will balance the budget?

You know what? He probably won't be able to get it done. In the debate he talked about cutting funding to PBS, and people went nuts. When we start having to make cuts to pay our bills people are going to lose their shiat.

We are probably going to have to default on our debt. before things get better.

Question, you think Obama will?


Obama's at least willing to consider both spending cuts as well as revenue increases. Obama's already cut from Medicare (and taken a bunch of flack for it from the right). Romney and the Republicans have signed a loyalty oath to a lobbyist promising to never even consider any legislation that would increase tax revenues.

As a member of the Fark Progressive Brigade, I have LOTS of questions for Dear Leader:

WTF are we doing with the drones?

NDAA?!?

Why is the DEA harassing dispensaries?

...and more.

That said, PBO is LIGHTYEARS better than Mitt Romney. As a leader, and as a person.
 
2012-11-02 06:10:58 PM
So better than the last Republican President then?

I guess one question I have for Dear Leader is how can you sleep at night when the majority of your nation is starving and in the dark while you fund stupid pet nuclear projects.

Oh wait...you weren't talking about Kim Jong Il were you? You were trying to be cute and funny by calling Obama "Dear Leader".

It's not cute or funny, in fact the only way it's funny is because this is the best you can do at humor and it's pathetic and sad to watch.

Wait... I'm confused, what's wrong with a 2.6 GPA? It's a C average. Not fantastic, but it isnt a 1.6 or something.

A 2.0 is straight-Cs. 2.6 implies Bs and maybe even some As.

rufus-t-firefly: czetie: Paul Ryan stopped by to say that his GPA was 4.0, he double-majored, and he completed college in under three years, can't remember exactly how long, but definitely in the high twos.

Was he flexing while he casually dropped this information?




No, just a bit of "pseudo-intellectual snobbery" that he obtained from going to a "liberal indoctrination mill"....I mean...College.

Try to keep up man....

He graduated Magna cum laude from Harvard Law; at my school, that was 3.65. You're barking up the wrong tree.

Didn't you know? For minorities it's only 1.65, and professors aren't even allowed to give grades to minorities that would result in less than a 2.0.
It's the same way foodstamps for minorities let them buy cigarettes, alcohol, hair weaves, and press on nails.
 
2012-11-02 09:49:55 PM
I honestly don't care as he seems like a bright, reasonable man. However, it doesn't seem to make sense that he was able to get into Harvard with those grades.

/hope I didn't just start the next Republican conspiracy theory

Well, maybe. On a 4.0 scale 2.6 is a C+/B- average, roughly.
 
2012-11-03 12:14:47 AM
So 3.0 grade points higher than w's.

AdolfOliverPanties: I thought the mantra was "no one ever saw Barack Obama at Columbia."


The mantra is 'Whatever we can attack Obama on, even if it contradicts what we just finished uttering'. At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if one of these assholes flip flopped on back to back questions in the same press conference. These guys are almost making Romney look consistent.

Azlefty: FTA: "The 2.6 grade can't be confirmed, is contradicted by some evidence,"

BUT IT HAS TO BE TRUE! DERP! DERP! DERP


That's about like saying that astate certified birth certificate is fake, but an author's bio in a 20 year old promotional pamphlet is the Word of God.
 
2012-11-03 02:34:06 AM

Rapmaster2000: The 2.6 grade can't be confirmed, is contradicted by some evidence, and it doesn't say anything about the courses, professors and associations Obama was immersed in during his two-year stay in Columbia.

But the source is credible,

Sounds legit.


The source could very well be credible. That doesn't mean that his data is.

not only that... but as far as i can tell it was originally about Bush.

so a dumb joke stolen from liberals and repurposed into conservative humor... over a decade later.

that sounds about the speed of most conservative "comedy".

I heard Mitt Romney while attending college had gay sex with all of his Frat bothers as part of a weekly secret society satanic ritual orgy. Afterwards they abducted small children and sacrificed them so their stock portfolios would grow exponentially in offshore bank accounts tax free. In 2014 , after Romney takes office, he is to pool their collective assets, worth 10 trillion dollars, and use it to stage a giant false flag attack against every evangelical Christian church in America. He will use this as an excuse to order martial law in America and demand all citizens must partake in gay butt sex while wearing magic under wear at least 3 times a day.

Oh come on...tell the truth. You heard that from your father who found himself at the business end of a Romney probe that faithful college night....you were his little Ewoke that night, weren't you? Weren't you?
