We need a President that never accepts responsibility for nothing. Admitting that everything you do isn't 100 percent perfect and ordained by God makes us look weak to the lesser races.

Lt. Cheese Weasel: Mitt missed a big opportunity on Libya, but hammered enough home for any blind idiot to see that Obama is a lying sack of sh*t that can't be trusted. I like this kind of debate format. Gloves come off. Too bad they had a moron for a moderator who couldn't keep her piehole shut when she needed to. I'm sure Democrats are happy with the results, anything can be considered an improvement over Debate I. The swing states are still moving away from D to R, and women already seeing Obama for what he is. Obama loses on the economy especially since they continue to count the same dollars twice in every single significant calculation they make and completely ignore cold hard facts coming from the OCB. Throw in the hamfisted leadership in the Dept of State and you have all you need to sweep these aholes out of office.

Lot's of folks saying/tweeting they will riot if Romney wins. A riot is an ugly thing and I think it's just about time we had one. Detroit and Chicago can burn to the ground for all I care. Nothing of value will be lost.

For years after 9/11, Bill Maher and others said things like, "imagine if a Democrat was in office during 9/11. The GOP would never let them live it down," and generally people replied that they too would have put politics aside and came together as one nation. In the wake of Benghazi, can we finally put that bullshiat myth to rest that Republicans put their country above their party once and for all?

Yeah, there was a pic of Crowley the 'baggers were sending around last night with 'Partisan Hack' on it. I had recorded the debate and saw that when I was only a few minutes in. I kept waiting for her to do something to earn that scorn....never happened.

You need a tissue?


Not really. I don't think people are nearly as riled up about it as you seem to believe, lol. Maybe if Romney had any credibility whatsoever when it comes to foreign policy, people might be more willing to give a shiat about his endless politicizing of this issue, but he doesn't. Expect him to try and survive the entire duration of next week's foreign policy debate by harping on about Libya, and it just won't cut the mustard.
 
2012-10-17 10:13:27 AM  
Also, the phrase "Republican obstructionism in the House " appears 74 times and the phrase "It's all my fault and I'm a big doodyhead" doesn't feature even once.

Heh... Is it possible the GOP butthurt today will eclipse that of Democrats after the first debate?

From the looks of things around here, I'd say it's a distinct possibility...
 
2012-10-17 10:15:47 AM  
I'm sorry if people are still butthurt that Bush spent 8 years farking up this country and republicans spent another 4 obstructing all efforts to fix it. God forbid someone dare bring that up.

From the article:

The last time the words "I take responsibility" appear on the website is July 6, 2011, in the transcript of the president's Twitter Town Hall. By contrast, during that same time period, the phrase "got us into this mess in the first place" appears 86 times, referring almost exclusively to the previous administration. Even when the president speaks of "fault," it is often in the context of placing the word in the mouths of his critics, as in "They say the economy is bad and it's Obama's fault."

AH..HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA....*DEEP BREATH*....HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA..................

Satanic_Hamster: We need a President that never accepts responsibility for nothing. Admitting that everything you do isn't 100 percent perfect and ordained by God makes us look weak to the lesser races.


I worked with a software manager once. Anyway, very complex project, not correctly scoped. Didn't matter. She reported to a guy who apparently wouldn't accept failure. So...everything was green. Green as in, we're on schedule.

Project - total disaster. I mean farking nightmare. Developers were overworked or in many cases lazy or incompetent, the schedule was way too tight, the marketing people got involved way too often and would request new features every week or so, and weren't specific enough about what they want.

Didn't matter. Everything had to be green. She was disgusted when our side of the fence said, 'umm no we're not green, this product doesn't work, we are red.' She would not hear it. And her answer to everything was "we can't look back we have to move forward." In her defense, the project had been delayed so many times it was already really bad, but let's just say she was separated from reality. And very possibly taking methamphetamine, considering how agitated she was in meetings. She would dominate meetings that were set up for the sole purpose of venting their frustration with the project or discussing specific problems that needed to be solved. "We can't address your issues, we have to move forward." WTF?

People should accept failure, they should take responsibility for it, but no one should think less of a person who accepts that responsibility. There's nothing wrong with getting back on your feet afterwards, but there's also nothing wrong with learning from failure and doing better the next time. I want to see people hold themselves accountable.

Otherwise, you have people like that manager running around, disaster after disaster, not looking back to figure out why the hell everyone hates you and your piece of shiat product.
