lennavan: Look guys, I know Obama has four years experience already running the country but I think it's critical we find out his college GPA to know whether or not he is qualified to be POTUS.


And based on the performance during those 4 years we should wonder just how disgustingly easy those classes must have been for Obama to get that high of a GPA.

AdolfOliverPanties: 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?

No thanks.


This - great post, AND

This.

The guy is clearly a paid shill. No intelligent people are listening to him. Just let him live in his imaginary world of frothy rage. Romney has no chance, so it's not like this kid's stupid, uninformed, and uneducated opinion matters. He's just saying what he has been told to say by Fox News and/or his employer.

FlashHarry: so, this is your line of attack - that obama is stupid? really? your'e going with that?

No, that's not it at all. We all know that he's intelligent; I mean the man's a diabolical genius for christ's sake. The low GPA shows that during his college career he was extremely lazy, and perhaps shiftless.

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:

justtray: This - great post, AND


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?" Half the country wants to vote for Romney. There's a 20% chance we're going back to 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."

CPennypacker: Man he really pulled his shiat together at Harvard to get Magna Cum Laude then


A few day at work some people were talking about the whole thing of Trump challenging him to bring out his transcripts. I pointed out the detail of graduating Magna Cum Laude, their response was that he could be lying. I asked them if they seriously thought a person went around making that claim for DECADES and no one ever bothered to check. They just stopped talking about the subject.

uberaverage: I was under the impression that the reason to see his college transcripts was to show he applied as a foreign-born exchange student. Not trolling, it seems pretty logical to me.


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.
