Thunderpipes: ChadM89: I love how the conservatives complain about Obama not being presidential enough in their view, while at the same time they're always bloviating about elitism, and how they want their leaders to be "regular folk" like their neighbors, and making guys like Joe The Plumber the public face of their party. Sarah Palin can "you betcha! [wink!]" at the camera in a farking vice-presidential debate and that's fine because she's so real and folksy and down-to-earth and god love her for it, but Obama takes his shirt off at the farking beach and all of a sudden he doesn't have the gravitas that the office requires.

Goddamn you people are stupid.

When he spends more time on "The View" than he does communicating to Congress or press conferences, yes, he has lost all credibility. He is a power hungry douche who attracts like minded people.


He's the sort of guy who would run for president? Old news.

bunner: natas6.0: conservatives are racists who want to cement your vaginas!

Nah, they're just not conservative. They are, however, relatively certain that if they continue to kiss the asses of filthy rich, old white men, that it will 1953, again in no time or, at the very least, they'll get a seat in the getaway car after the economy resembles post war Dresden. So far, the "nudge, wink, smirk" platform is sucking canal water, Johnny can't read and talented people are pushing brooms if they can find work at all. This is not, however, the fault of any president or cabinet, as a root cause. It's the fault of a nation who were trained to drop their knees and service any swinging dick with an 8 figure bank account. So far, the costume party hasn't done much for anybody who isn't already rich, but we just keep waving that tattered pom pom. *sigh*


It's actually a fairly inevitable transition that all societies make, once they make that fateful step from "government as the protector of all" to "government as the distributor of money and favors."

Seriously, what the hell did the socialist "progressives" expect? Throughout recorded history, money has ALWAYS talked. The Golden Rule was/is/shall be "He that has the gold makes the rules."

So the lefties work and work and work for 100+ years to create that above-mentioned government transition and then are astonished and flabbergasted that the society they wanted to turn into a Worker's Paradise has instead turned into a Plutocracy?

LOL!

How do you know what I think of the other side? The subject of the thread was the conservative opinion of Obama's "presidentialness", and that's all I spoke to. I could have a similarly scathing argument about things that progressives do, but it's not relevant here so I didn't say anything about it. In your rush to point a finger at me, you've failed to pay attention and as a result, made a groundless claim.

MrHelpful: Actually what I think makes Obama "least presidential" is his complete incompetence.


There's a marked difference between making a point and making a claim. Claims need to be backed up by argument, using things like reason, facts and examples before the point is made.

Your claim is Obama's incompetence. Go ahead and make your case, we're all dying to hear it.

Actually, it's quite easy to rise above any given bar. You look at the bar, say "somebody seems to have placed this bar here and assigned great importance to it", and then get on with the business of doing what you came to do.

That, unfortunately, only works if the State is sharply limited in it's powers. Because of the aforementioned Golden Rule. Otherwise, government inevitably becomes a tool of the wealthy and a yoke around the necks of everyone else. The "progressives" chose poorly in embracing their concept of God Government as the be-all and end-all fount of progress.

Here's a thought, Mr. President. If you want parades, balls, celebrations and all of the other bells and whistles to honor yourself while many of your citizens are barely getting by, pony up & pay or it yourself. I'm pretty sure you can afford it.

And my larger, I mean avoir du pois and girth. Not complexity. Complexity is something we assign to large and imposing problems that resemble a whale because admitting that the problem is a big, fat, institutionalized whale means we just have to harpoon the sonofab*tch and use the carcass for mulch, And then, that means we might not get our share of plaques, awards and Monopoly money being offered for ignoring / supporting / playing along with the idea that the whale is necessary. This is for illustrative purposes of a large thing. Whales are quite nice and I wish them no ill.

or bowing to kings and potentates ? Our President should fist bump only,as the American leader it was assumed he is an equal, not a subject to a king.
IF that king would return the bow, as in Japan or China then a courtesy bow is not a parley of power but a friendly handshake alternative. Like former presidents did in the East a mutual equivalency is not the same as being a cheap puppet like our leader is demonstrating.

ChildOfBhaal: theknuckler_33: ChildOfBhaal: I seldom have much good to say about John Kerry. But his campaign, at least, never tried to charge me $3 for a bumper sticker when I requested one at the local campaign office. You're a politician asking for my support, not a fashionable brand, dammit. Admittedly, this is a somewhat different situation than Barry's wanting to charge me to advertise him. But, still...

Yes, it is different. Please continue the "But, still..." thought. Why is charging for inauguration souvenirs such a travesty?

Good argumentative technique. Put words ("travesty") in my mouth and call me out on a point that I've already conceded. While I reject the premise of your question, I will answer it. The $3 bumper sticker, the historic opting-out of federal funding in '08, and the sale of inaugural swag (however common the practice) are indicative of the commercialization of our political system. Am I wrong to be distressed by this?

/Fark Buckley v. Valeo. Money is not speech.


I think there is nothing to be distressed about by selling inauguration swag when the proceeds from those sales go to paying the expenses related to that inauguration. Frankly, I'm glad there's an effort to raise funds for it through voluntary purchases rather than our taxes.

And, while I see that you can purchase campaign bumper stickers and other materials online, I wonder if you would not have been able to get a bumper sticker for free at an Obama campaign office as you suggested in your OP.  If it is true that you couldn't get a free Obama bumper sticker at the campaign office (or any other campaign event for that matter), then I find that far more disturbing than selling inauguration swag. In fact, I wonder if that would even be legal as it seems like a forced campaign contribution in some way.

All systems work fine on paper and are, rabid "One True Way©" flag wavers notwithstanding, essentially just components that are utilized to meet whatever need that that given component is best applied to. Money, bureaucracies, capital and other accepted constructs in our society are not useless, in and of themselves. They are, like chainsaws, axes, pitchforks and fire, tools. They can also be weapons. The problem is, and always has been, user application error.
