That Bush-Cheney sandwich was so tasty...

Romney ran as "Not Obama". I couldn't figure out what he was about and what he might actually do as President. If he had a vision, he had trouble getting it across.

9. Gay marriage and rights. Here to stay. Though the gays will learn that marriage sucks as much for them as heterosexuals.

Are you trying to say that things would be better if Romney had won, or are you just expressing omnidirectional frustration?

Dont get caught up in the ridiculous left wing hype. Barry won by 2.4% of the vote. in polling, that's less than the margin of error..... statistically insignificant. Worse, the country couldnt be more divided along demographic lines. You call that a mandate? Most importantly, the dynamics in the 3 branches of govt are utterly unchanged.

Standby for 4 more years of the exact same shit sandwich we've had for the last 4.


3 million more votes is hardly statistically insignificant. especially since Romney got 2.5 M less than McCAIN! your brand is damaged. time to re-boot for the 21st century. accept this fact or risk marginalization.

it is when there are 117MM votes cast you dolt.

i know this is a concept beyond your capacity to grasp but I think a little homework assignment could push over the top of this Everest of a problem.

1. Get a bag of rice and count out 117 kernels into a pile.

2. Take away 2.4 from the first pile and make a new pile.

3. Examine the relationship of pile number 1 to pile number 2 and explain to us why 2 is meaningful to 1

Report back to class. an anxious world awaits your response.

PS

it aint my brand

You're doubling down on one of your worst ever points.

If 2.4% is statistically insignificant please write me a check for 2.4% of your net worth right now. You will never miss it if its insignificant. If you refuse then you are full of crap as usual. :-)

P.S. If it's not your brand then why do you keep selling their product? Your posts are indistinguishable from far right talking points.

That and not being able to make a clear point in his own words are kind of tradition around here. Shhh, don't say anything though, he'll get really mad!

Anyway I think it all boils down to this: when there's an election and a Democrat president is the result, it was God's will.

not surprising that you cant grasp this basic fact: Obama barely won reelection against a flip flopping, truth stretching robot in secret underwear. I know this is a difficult topic for you and sue to comprehend (as are most), but barely overcoming one of the worst challengers in the history of presidential politics is an indictment on the quality of the victor. When 2/3s of the country think it is on the wrong track yet return control to the exact same bunch of losers means the challenger was even worse. Hard to understand i know, but think on it for a while and maybe the light bulb will go off.

8. The debt matters. A lot. People want to see solutions to this problem plus long-term social security solvency. Republicans should be able to direct on this issue but they keep failing by going after straw men like PBS that the public actually values. Fiscal conservatives who are socially liberal can win big posts: see Guiliani and Bloomberg. But you can't package it with social conservatism and gutting the middle class. The corporate mergers from Reagan onward have squeezed all the life out of the culture. Radio especially is in the crapper b/c of deregulation. Excessive deregulation leads to a bloodbath with lots of losers and very few winners. It's not what the country wants.


This post right here is why there needs to be a Stoopit Hall of Fame forum up in here where idiotic post can live forever.
