just for fun's sake, what if the video had portrayed Romney$, with the appropriate narrative and embellishments.

Would have been clever and funny as hell.


oh yeah I see your point there. But didn't they do a video like that? something about 47% of something? Seems I recall the Romneys kind of made all the necessary video's themselves. Like Healyje was just pointing out, you just sit back and let them explain themselves in all honesty and earnestness and there really isn't any need for a propaganda effort - they provide their own.

That is if your target audience is smarter than Sarah and the Hermanator.

I thought John Maynard Keynes said not to be too concerned about these deficits.

A guy got arrested in San Diego for breaking into a cafeteria to "steal" food and Sheldon Adelson up in Los Vegas spent over $50M to defeat Obama.

What is it that money doesn't do, when it's not talking?

BluRing says he has an IQ of 130.
I say he is less than your average Fox Viewer.
probably more like 68
We used to call that a room temperature IQ.

I'm curious what TGT thinks of what he has forgotten......the CONGRESS passes bills, then sends them to the President.

I'm hard pressed to think of situations in the past where the President personally got involved in negotiations. It was carried on by the respective parties in their respective houses.

So Obama has repeatedly gone WAY WAY out of the way to accommodate the Republicans....and you can see how grateful Repugs like TGT are about it.

I say throw their asses out of the White House, and let them do their jobs, in THEIR house. Stop pandering to children like TGT.

"Stop pandering to children like TGT."

Too late - the repub party is doomed, even they know it.

A few more general elections, and they're finished.

After Rove's failure in the 2012 campaign one would expect the centroid of corporate campaign funding will begin to move more to the Democratic side. At least in the early stages this metric might be good for measuring republican health.

Obama has to be planning out how to support the careers of moderate republicans. For the longer term the country needs to remake that party. Hopefully the Tea party will split off and take with it many of the most absurd positions/people. Demint's palinization may be a scenario that is to become common.

Edit:
It is not at all unusual for lobbyists to support both candidates. Support for a loser is a loss. The splits will probably begin shifting. Particularly with Rove's example for ineffective use of money.

An interesting posit eh? I assume that would not include anything Koch, Trump, Adlebrain and other fascist hardcores but unless a political force to the left of the Democrats were to evolve, why would the whole of wall street choose to fund Democrats .... unrless to groom them into the next bunch of Republicans? Thats the real problem here. Power corupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
The Dems as a party are no less prone to reaping the rewards due them, if thats how they look at it which they will. Up here in BC our current leadership trounced the opposition leading to unleashed coruption, hubris, ineptitude ... the whole nine yards of no competition.

everything mysteriously tipped in favor of business and big money of course. The true measure of Obama will be (among other things like climate change leadership) seperation of business and state. Without it we're still just kicking the ball down the street.

Starting at 1:25...Ann Coulter and Hannity. Quite the exchange - not something I thought I'd ever see.

More evidence of how Obama has out-maneuvered the Republicans once again.

He beat them at their own game.

Like Coulter said, they now risk being the party that will be responsible for raising everyone's taxes.

And now, rather than man-up and own the sad reality of how their well-planned and financed strategy of obstructionism, racism, homophobia, sexism and xenophobia failed their party and the American people they instead seek to look anywhere but in the mirror in an effort to lay blame and deflect the obvious truth.

Hear hear !!

The law is just, it punished both the rich and the poor for stealing a loaf of bread.

I think one of the Marx Brothers said that.

The Fiscal cliff was the President's Deal
The Republicans signed what the President wanted into to law.

Now it's time for them to man up, and make a better deal for the President and the Dems, or go over the cliff.

Which of course is not a cliff, the media just named it that to scare the mindless droids so they will watch more news.

Once we go over the mole hill/cliff, then the Dems can deal with the upper hand to get more deals to help the middle class and poor.

Ok, looking at the NY Times best seller list, #3 for nonfiction is "Killing Kennedy" by Bill O'Reilly. He also wrote a book on, I think, Lincoln a few years ago.

I can understand buying his books if you agree with his politics, but why the f*#k would anyone by a history book from that dope. Seriously. Why the f*#k? There are some very good historians and writers who really know their sh#t and can write circles around that poser.

I would say that some people really are brain dead, but that would only serve to insult brain dead people.

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/09/opinion/sunday/dowd-a-lost-civilization.html?ref=opinion

The Mayans were right, as it turns out, when they predicted the world would end in 2012. It was just a select world: the G.O.P. universe of arrogant, uptight, entitled, bossy, retrogressive white guys.

Just another vanishing tribe that fought the cultural and demographic tides of history.

Someday, it will be the subject of a National Geographic special, or a Mel Gibson movie, where archaeologists piece together who the lost tribe was, where it came from, and what happened to it. The experts will sift through the ruins of the Reagan Presidential Library, Dick Cheney’s shotgun casings, Orca poll monitoring hieroglyphics, remnants of triumphal rants by Dick Morris on Fox News, faded photos of Clint Eastwood and an empty chair, and scraps of ancient tape in which a tall, stiff man, his name long forgotten, gnashes his teeth about the 47 percent of moochers and the “gifts” they got.

Instead of smallpox, plagues, drought and Conquistadors, the Republican decline will be traced to a stubborn refusal to adapt to a world where poor people and sick people and black people and brown people and female people and gay people count.

As the historian Will Durant observed, “A great civilization is not conquered from without until it has destroyed itself from within.”

 I hear that in bill's book no single word is longer than the word "understand"… which makes things really easy to understand for the brain dead. Plus it gets the word count up to give the book the bulk and heft of a real book about history.

Why are the republigoons such dumbasses?

Here's a good reason:



at the same time it's also the reason some demo crocks are dumbasses too… for shooting themselves in the foot and not using the power that they have
