HOW DARE HE DEFAME THE NAME OF SAINT REAGAN!

/who votes for these morons?

That man simply cannot open his mouth without unleashing a tsunami of stupid.
 
2013-05-24 04:08:34 PM
Never mind the fact that many of us brown people's families were here in the U.S. LEGALLY long before Reagan was born.

Asshole.

This'll go over well with that outreach program.
 
2013-05-24 04:32:28 PM
That amnesty thing happened when I was in college. I distinctly remember being told the people granted amnesty would be so grateful their families would vote republican forever. And I had to produce two forms of ID at my internship to prove I was an American. Evidently there was a flood of illegal accountants in Boston at the time.

GOP really needs to review it's policy about letter their politicians talk.

I take comfort in the fact that this POS toadie with a voice will never rise past the position of congressman.  Everyone in the state of Iowa knows that he is a demented creature with coherency issues, except for the idiots in his district who believe that it is a great idea to vote for him every two years.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't "Obamaphones" start under St. Ronnie, too?

I'm sensing a pattern.

Ha!  According to Snopes, the Lifeline program started in 1984.

Also this.

King would have preferred that if all those brownies were given amnesty that they not also be given the vote.

Or maybe a 3/5 vote would have evened things out in the last couple of elections.  I don't feel like crunching the numbers.
 
2013-05-24 05:04:03 PM
Suffice it to say, I doubt this is a thread King really wants to pull at.

Introduced by President Ford, made permanent by Carter, expanded by Reagan, Bush I, and Clinton.

Reagan?  Pfft.

The Founding Fathers caused 0bama's victories by bringing in all those blahs 250 years ago.

King must have been properly lithiumed as there was no attempt to make a "Bonzo" "joke."

People of Color used to vote for the Republican Party. Used to, anyway. Can't imagine why they stopped.

FTFA: "It's clear to anybody that can do any kind of statistical analysis that Barack Obama wouldn't be president of the United States without Ronald Reagan's 1986 amnesty act," King said during a speech on the House floor.

Odd. He references them, but I don't see any actual statisticals. At least three would be nice.

Yup.  Program started by Reagan and upgraded to include cell phones by GWB...hence "Obamaphones"

Louisiana and South Carolina have Governors brought about by Reagan's amnesty program.

Laser like focus on jobs.

What professional duty was he fulfilling by saying this in Congress? Was there some bill being discussed or something? Why is this something that anyone could say as a function of their job without getting fired for wasting company time, instead of typing it all up and submitting it to the op/ed section of your favorite news outlet?

I can at least say I voted against him in the last 3 elections, not that it made a bit of difference

As an Iowan trapped in his very district (I've voted against him every time, even though I knew the butthole would win), I can say with certainty that King's success isn't because he's some of electoral juggernaut, but because the Iowa Democratic Party keeps running a totally limp-dicked campaigns against him every time.

Even the one last year when Vilsack's wife was the strongest candidate yet, and the IA Democratic Party barely did squat to get her name out, or to help her campaign.

King is a lout, but he's the kind of lout that resonates with the types of cretin who will vote EVERY time for such louts. The IDP is more like "Democrats, come vote, or not. All up to you I guess.".

FTFA: "It's clear to anybody that can do any kind of statistical analysis that Barack Obama wouldn't be president of the United States without Ronald Reagan's 1986 amnesty act," King said

Is his analysis as simplistic as "Hey look, a bunch more Messicans are in America now, and we lost the election in '08.  Therefore all those Messicans are the difference and they're the ones that made us lose."?  Is that really statistical analysis?  Can he even spell Suhsticticle Anallseez?

You have to unskew the statisticals to get the results he's expecting.

Yeah---if King had chosen to run for Tom Harkin's Senate seat it would have been a defeat of epic proportions.

Well he said it, he should pony up the analysis.  From his sentence, his p value is 0.

Oh and the hordes of their followers who could find no fault in their policies, they helped to.

Uh, no. Reagan knew, just like Blowjob Billy knew, that at the end of the day those slightly darker than a caramel folks give WAY more than they take.

Shrink that tent.

Purify the party.

Cast aspersions on the nearest minority for what ails you next.

Call anyone that votes against you moochers

"Humm...why are we losing the minority vote. Don't they know what's good for them?"

Shrinking the base. Proven to work on a national scale 1 out of every 5 elections, everytime!!!

I think a Sioux City or even a Denison or Ames Independent without horrific baggage could take him down. I expect nothing out of the Democrats but another mealy-mouthed 'conservative Democrat with no new ideas to be put up on the altar for slaughter.

They won't throw any real money at King's district unless the rest of the seats are solid locks for Blue.  I've been told that the NW quarter of Iowa is just money lost for the Democrats if they spend it there.  Moving Ames in might help though
