Don't Troll Me Bro!: So God couldn't fit all the oil in the USA? Then he's not omnipotent. Why call him God?


Look, he had a map, ok?  It makes sense if you look at the earth from the moon.

Right now Rubio is in a room somewhere digesting the damage he just did to his political career with this disaster of a speech. He was obviously very nervous and the water grab is already exploding on the internet. I seriously thought he was going to to be the young hotshot politician who was going to demonstrate his skill and swagger to a national audience. What I saw was a guy in a freshman speech class struggling to read a poorly written speech off a teleprompter.

Don't Troll Me Bro!: CSB: Got to say something similar to a relative when he said something about how "liberals defied God's will by re-electing Obama." "So a bunch of mortals can get together and trump God's will? Sounds like you worship a weak little biatch."


Could also have gone with:
"So you're saying that Liberals are more powerful than God?  And that the parts of the Bible that said mortals couldn't know God's will were just typos?"

It just stuns me that a group of professional politicians can't find a single person who can stand up there and give a coherent speech without making fools of themselves.  It's like they're in their own heads.

I was sooo unimpressed by Rubio, which is surprising because he actually surprised me at the Republican National Convention.

Did he just copy/paste one of Romney's speeches? That's what it sounded like. The sweating and the lunge for the water seemed to indicate he realized how bad he was sucking. I really expected him to try to present himself as something new and different, but he just sounded like the same old bag of worn out talking points the voters rejected the other month.
 
2013-02-13 12:40:59 AM  
People find it easier to speak well when they believe what they are saying.  The GOP's main problem is that they require their spokesmen to get up and spout stuff they KNOW is inane.  Trying to make it sound reasonable would give anybody flop sweat.

seriously, we now invite illegal immigrants to the SOTU?

It would be funnier if he tried, but then the Secret Service tazed his sorry ass and he shiat his pants.

Seriously, we now invite pants-shiatting draft dodgers who make death threats to the SOTU?

What's with all the ad-hominems? I'm not a Nugent fan, but everyone shiats their pants at some point.


How many people deliberately shiat their pants in an effort to escape being drafted to the Viet Nam war? And of those who do, how many of those rant and rave about socialists and commies all the while trying to paint themselves as some sort of super patriot?

Only one that I know of.

There needs to be an effort to pull a Santorum on Ted Nugent - so that his name becomes synonymous with taking a dump in one's pants.

Sends wrong signal, basically.

Also "balanced budget amendment" as his only specific?

Whether it's for the count or not remains to be seen but he sure didn't do himself any favors tonight.

Oh, and biz owners -- if wages go up, raise your prices.  It's not hard.

So you're in favor of six or seven dollar a gallon gas? Eight bucks for a gallon of milk?


Why would that happen? It's only those who employ people on minimum wage that would need to raise prices in order to cover higher wage payments. Your cup of coffee might cost an extra 15 cents, your pizza an extra 50 cents.
