chiett: Well if I can't fix it myself it's my fault for hiring a mechanic who sucks!
MisterRonbo: So please do provide some examples.Oh, and if you trot out that "pass it to find out what's in it" quote that gets taken out of context, you will look like an idiot.Please proceed, chiett.
chiett: Okay, How's this jewel. "We need to pass it to find out whats in it"
Ctrl-Alt-Del: He must be in the negatives by now
Dubya's_Coke_Dealer: Has anyone else mentioned that they won't vote for Obama in 2016, given his lousy poll numbers?
NeverDrunk23: If any left/liberal/center/moderate is making dozens of alts pretending to be the right and attack anything left of them, who do you possibly think you are actually helping in the end?
mediablitz: chiett: MisterRonbo: chiett: Diogenes:Governing in a two party environment requires a principled opposition. His opposition has no principles.Yeah, almost as bad as Nancy Pelosi!I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt, and not assume you're one of the many righties with a reflexive irrational hate for Pelosi. Since she was my representative for about 16 years, I'm very familiar with her record. I'm not aware of her doing anything that could be called unprincipled.So please do provide some examples.Oh, and if you trot out that "pass it to find out what's in it" quote that gets taken out of context, you will look like an idiot.Please proceed, chiett.Okay, How's this jewel. "We need to pass it to find out whats in it"Of course since you are one of the people who keep re-electing her, then I guess you are to blame also. So who is dumber the person who would expect people to swallow that line, or the one who does.farking CLASSIC! Got an actual spit-take laugh.
bdub77: Diogenes: I would imagine some of this is natural during this point in any prez' second term. And it might also explain Obama's increased public speaking.Being a president means that every bill or decision you don't like is magnified by a voter's perception. For example I really don't like his blatant continuation of the Patriot Act policies.Having said that, Obama has been an awfully good president who has been very obviously hamstrung by the Republican surge in 2010 and the resulting Republican stalemate and gerrymandering agenda.Also, your blog sucks.
h0lmesdaddy: chiett: Instead of Obama blaming everything on others why doesn't he just come out and say it."I cannot govern in a two party environment"Of course you have to ignore that his party had control of both houses for two years.But...But....Bush, But.....But.....those mean old Republicans.FTFY: Of course you have to ignore that his party had control of both houses for two years 65 Days.There was a Super Majority for 65 days before the 60th vote got ill. Then, ignoring the will of the people and spreading blatant lies (Death Panels) that persist to this day, the GOP resisted and the Senate filibustered every attempt at voting on anything remotely important. Facts have a liberal Bias I know. Republicans have also set records for filibusters. shiat, Mitch McConnell Filibustered himself. Obama has done a lot to clean up the mess of the W term. Don't even try to pretend there hasn't been baltant obstructionism that is completely unprecedented in the History of our Country. Since then, Republicans/Libertarians/Fascists have sacrificed our credit rating because they didn't know what it meant.If you would like I can create a coloring book for you and your like to understand stuff. Just repeating shiat doesn't make it true.

Aristocles: to a farklib, "troll" means "someone who likes something I don't like"
ThatDarkFellow: HAY I BET HE ISNT GOING TO WIN THE NEXT PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION IF HE KEEPS THIS UP, AMIRITE GUYS?!!@!@/BECAUSE YOU CANT BE PRESIDENT MORE THAN TWICE!//SEE THE JOKE? ITS A JOKE!LOL!
the_dude_abides: i'm starting to feel bad for the obama diehards. they've become so pathetic and wretched.we get it. you were promised so much. you've become so emotionally invested. watching the downward spiral must be so devastating. but it's ok. it's all going to be... ok.
the_dude_abides: we get it. you were promised so much.
OhioUGrad: The thing I can see happening with Obama is that he becomes more forceful his last 2 years than most POTUS (depending on 2014 and if republicans keep digging their own graves). Of course, that also requires democrats to not sit by just because it is a mid-term election.
the_dude_abides: i understand your frustration. it's ok, your misguided self-righteousness and your snarky sense of humor will help you get through it. you're on the right side of history. this is just a rough patch.
Okay! All aboard the bananana boat!!
ArcadianRefugee: Well, let's take a look at those metrics, shall we?
Jim_Tressel's_O-Face: No substance, all butthurt.
the_dude_abides: ArcadianRefugee: Well, let's take a look at those metrics, shall we?you just wasted a bunch of time defending claims that were never made by cook. i know that you're in an emotional frenzy and have some misguided need to protect the president you've swooned over, but please, let's stick to reality. turn the rabid defense down and use your brain.here's your false quote:"I outlined five metrics to watch...: presidential job approval, consumer confidence, attitudes toward the Affordable Care Act, favorable and unfavorable attitudes toward the Democratic and Republican parties, and finally, the generic congressional ballot test. [Obama's] approval numbers seem to be dropping by about a point every three weeks."that last bolded part appears much later in the article. you added it, out of sequence, to create a false context. why? oh yeah, because you're an intellectually dishonest twat like every other obama defender on fark. please do us all a favor and stop lying.
the_dude_abides: that last bolded part appears much later in the article. you added it, out of sequence
ArcadianRefugee: Wait, sorry: you're right; I forgot a farking ellipsis. So go ahead and insert them yourself, or feel free to insert a closing quote and another opening quote so as to separate them as two, distinct quotations.Now, how does that change anything, you reality-denying douche?
Poopspasm: chiett: ManateeGag: You need your car to get to work. Your car doesn't start one day and you can't get to work. Now, is it the car's fault for not starting or your fault because you can't drive a car that won't start? Well if I can't fix it myself it's my fault for hiring a mechanic who sucks!This is very possibly the stupidest thing ever written in the English language.
the_dude_abides: Jim_Tressel's_O-Face: No substance, all butthurt.really? so obama hasn't taken a major hit since the election? and his supporters aren't disappointed?
Marcus Aurelius: I convinced that I'll never vote for the man ever again.
verbaltoxin: HeartBurnKid: verbaltoxin: bgddy24601: verbaltoxin: MindStalker: Marcus Aurelius: I convinced that I'll never vote for the man ever again.Has any president in modern history gone on to run for any other electable office?Andrew Johnson was elected to the US Senate, and William Howard Taft was appointed to the Supreme Court.John Quincy Adams was a member of the House of Representatives for something like 16 years.That's right! I thought there had to be another. The President's post-Executive lives could be quite interesting. Most retired, but a few mounted attempts for 2nd or 3rd terms, and some remained political meddlers until the ends of their lives.Considering Obama's relatively young, as presidents go, and seems to believe wholeheartedly in public service, I could see him going back to the Senate. Then again, with the crap he's had to deal with for 8 years, I wouldn't blame him if he just embraced obscurity and we never heard from him again.Kingmaker. The Clintons have been doing it for years, and Obama is their successor. Should Hilary run again, she'll have the one-two punch of Bill and Barack on the campaign trail, raising tons of cash - the very best thing Obama does as a politician.
mrEdude: he's pretty much failed hope and changethough republicans can share in aiding that failure.Basically Obama is just proof that it doesn't matter who's president, cuz money rules your 'democracy' anymore.
the_dude_abides: because he's not saying every one of those metrics has gone down by 1 point every 3 to 4 weeks. he's saying obama's job approval rating has fallen by 1 point every 3 to 4 weeks since mid-january (which is, by the way, true).
ArcadianRefugee: Oh, so now it's "three to four" weeks? Since January? Neither the number nor word "four" appear in his article, excepting as it appears as a digit in a larger number. Nor does the word "January", though I suppose if you do combine those two his statement is correct as far as numbers go.
the_dude_abides: that's the spirit, comrades! nancy will take back the house! and obama will become stronger than ever! and... and... THEN WE'LL SHOW EVERYBODY!
