Will he use the bully pulpit? It would be a matter of remarkable ease to expose them after the election, peel back the layers hiding the truth of the matter -- that the GOP is intentionally hindering the economic recovery for political reasons.

But, he's pretty much a centrist, so that might be asking a bit much...

Then we'd have the first world United States next to the failed experiment third world Confederate States. They'd probably be sick of their own shiat by now and attempting to make some progress. Instead, they are stuck trying to force on the rest of us their ass-backward theological, racial, and patriotic beliefs that achieve nothing but division, distress, and produce demagogues who pander to the fear of their under- and uneducated masses.

Seriously, do we still need these people in the 21st century?


I like to think that in a perfect world the loser of the Civil War had to keep the south, but in practice it would probably be more like China on our doorstep: a backward, repressive, totalitarian regime reliant on cheap labor providing shoddy products to our own underclass. Oh, and it's Border Problem would be its own people fleeing to the south for better living conditions and a more democratic government.

jasimo: Jiro Dreams Of McRibs: Romney was the first governor in modern Massachusetts history to deny every request for a pardon or commutation during his four years in office. He denied 100 requests for commutations and 172 requests for pardons, including the request from a soldier serving in Iraq to be pardoned for a conviction at age 13 involving a BB gun.

He left office with a 34% approval rating.

Wow.

I'm still wondering why Obama didn't hammer him on that.

"You had a 34% approval rating when you left office!! People have SEEN you govern before... and they don't like it!!!




It's very frustrating. He's on the right side of history, and it's unfortunate that he's under siege by the the most concentrated degenerate, white-trash demographic America has seen since drooling inbreeds were spitting and swearing at black children trying to go to school, but he really is a terrible politician.

Now I may be liberal as hell but I take Talking Point Memo with a grain of salt. They sometimes exaggerate and-

"You know that if the President is re-elected, he will still be unable to work with the people in Congress," Romney said. "He has ignored them, attacked them, blamed them. The debt ceiling will come up again, and shutdown and default will be threatened, chilling the economy."

...Okay, I want these people out and put on a pleasant canoe to a deserted island. With plenty of bitter coconut trees to live off of.

As Republicans realize we will NOT be returning to a nostalgic version of our history that never actually existed except in the fevered dreams of some old, impotent white guys, the 7 stages of grief are becoming apparent.

First there was shock and denial. "Where's the birth certificate?"

Second the pain and guilt. "We are being punished for gay illegal alien abortions"

Now the anger and bargaining begins. "Unless we change course, we may well be looking at another recession"

Fourth, after the election depression will rear its ugly head.

Fifth, they will eventually come to terms with reality.

Sixth, they will try to get back in the game and become relevant again.

Seventh, Acceptance and Hope, they will realize that Universal Healthcare is NOT the worst thing that can happen to a country.

I would counsel patience for our fellow Americans as they work through their issues.

The rest of us will be getting on with our lives.

Stages of GOP desperation:

To capture the desperation you have to take in all the stages:

1) lack of gloating or even veiled confidence (oddly polite comments like "it ain't over until it's over")
2) quietness (where are the usual suspects)
3) feigned indifference (It doesn't matter because of XYZ)
4) the crazy/hate/fear (conspiracy theories, racism and funny/insane twists in logic)
5) being a victim (expressing that a great wrong is happening)
6) clinging to a wildcard (some last minute development will save them)
7) false bravado (leaving the country, going off the grid, threatening revolution)
8) making lemonade with sour grapes (e.g., pretending they can take economic advantage of the country's fall into the abyss or "'I'm going to enjoy watching you Liberals XYZ").
9) looking to the future (2014)
10) ongoing bitter butthurt and lack of acceptance (see 2008-2012)

I would put this latest move around for with a focus on fear (Romney's in this case)

Funny how you talk about bipartisanship and cooperation, but only mention Obama needing to make some effort.

Because Republicans have already been making such efforts at bipartisan cooperation, right? All those filibusters are just their way of saying, "we want to make this relationship work!"

For 4 years he has tried to compromise when the other side stood there and acted like spoiled children throwing a tempertantrum. If Obama is re elected its time to make a point. They had the chance to compromise and they didn't, its time for red states to suffer.

A Dark Evil Omen: whistleridge: heap: dickfreckle:

Uh, a list of the biggest assholes in Congress includes far more than just Southerners. I'm not sure why you're blaming everything on us.

it's less blame, and more a situation of acknowledging the south actually tried the 'screw you guys, i'm going home' routine, paired with an intuition it may have been a better idea to just wave at them as they left.

if we play our cards right, within 25 posts, this can be a 'the civil war wasn't about slavery' thread.


weeee.

Ok, I'll bite:

It actually wasn't about slavery. It was about rich white men throwing a colossal hissy fit over the idea that someone else could place any practical limits in their power, privilege, or self-indulgence. Slavery was just a nifty way to sucker poor racist idiots into doing their fighting for them.

Proof? If there had been no money in slavery, it would have ended. Stat.

/ yeah, I went there

More to the point, it was white aristocrats fighting white aristocrats over who got to control a particular labor underclass. It was largely about slavery in the sense that the slaves were the resource being fought over.


You shut your whore mouth! The northern armies were populated and led by nothing but virtuous saints and noble crusader-kings, bravely sacrificing all for nothing more than the honor of knowing they were doing the right thing!

When I read crap like this, I often wish the South would've been successful in their secession. Then we'd have the first world United States next to the failed experiment third world Confederate States. They'd probably be sick of their own shiat by now and attempting to make some progress. Instead, they are stuck trying to force on the rest of us their ass-backward theological, racial, and patriotic beliefs that achieve nothing but division, distress, and produce demagogues who pander to the fear of their under- and uneducated masses.

Seriously, do we still need these people in the 21st century?
