Do we want a buddy who will pat us on the back? Who wears a Bruins jersey with the boys? Or a leader who will fight for our right to form unions and bargain for a better life?

Help support the change in the way election campaign funds

are raised.  Stop the Super Pacs from

steering the candidates and ruling the government. 

Come march on Congress and show them that the American

Population do not want candidates to be persuaded by these Super Pacs any more.

Visit www.indiegogo.com/SuperPac

and help raise the awareness of this problem.

Mitt Romney needs to feature Paul Ryan more in his campaign. That

false facade of economic intellectualism that the know-nothing Ryan has

so carefully cultivated is so easily demolished every time he opens his

mouth, and the ideas he expresses are so outrageously anti-democratic

and oligarchic, that he could become Barack Obama's most major asset

(although Mitt seems to be striving mightily to retain that accolade for

himself).  

See, the fact is, Ayn Rand was NOT one of our Founding Fathers, and most people are glad of that. Paul Ryan helps to remind Americans exactly what the Republican Party stands for -- a peasantry ruled over by their own robber barons -- and the better the American voter gets to know the Republicans, the less likely he or she is to vote for any of 'em.

I'm sorry.  I can't play by Barry's rules.  The man's game is scumbag, liar.

 Chris Stevens was found alive according to this:

http://www.euronews.com/2012/0...

A news report made by the Libyan Free Press is also reporting that Ambassador Stevens was sodomized before he was killed:

"Libya - USA Ambassador in Bengazi sodomized and killed by his own al-Qaeda puppets."

Yup, if a rightwing nut website says so, it's allegedly true - just playing by scumbag righties rules. We don't need truth or facts - just take anything anyone says and make it true.

 It's just as true as anything Obama has said about Bengazhi.  Pick the version from Obama that you think is true, Mr O.

Frustrated lawmakers are calling on the Obama administration to get

its story straight on what happened in last week's deadly attack on the

U.S. Consulate in Libya, with President Obama coming under pressure to

address the American people about the evolving narrative. 

"You hate to think that the president would purposely mislead the

American people, but it sure looks like it to me," House Armed Services

Committee Chairman Buck McKeon, R-Calif., said. 

Me too, and anyone with a brain.  That excludes the hive.

This is starting to get worrying/embarrassing/demoralizing for the Romney campaign. On the other hand, for concerned Republicans/conservatives/TeaBaggers out there, the ONLY poll that matters is the one on election day. So Suppress that vote! ;-) 

There is scarcely a single swing state with Romney leading right now, even North Carolina is either tied or Obama is leading which I assumed was Tea Party-country. I'm tempted to say that if Obama loses from this advantage point, it will be due to gross political malpractice! No wonder Ramp;R are bussing off to ground zero in the electoral battleground, Ohio. Win that state or bust! Have a Nice Day! :-)

If there is ANY drama left in the presidential race, it has to come from sites that at least show Mitt with a fighting chance. I give Adam the benefit of a doubt because he's tossed out some great "1000 Words" in the last few months. This election has been lousy if we wanted some suspense.

That NJ article on Colorado was epically crappy (and I already had my standards pretty low when I realized it came from the National Journal).  First off, they describe Colorado as "the rare swing state that has kept a red hue on an electoral map where many battlegrounds are turning blue."  How blue has it been on the election maps?  Well, of the last 27 polls of the state since February or 2011, Romney has led in exactly 3 of them (there have also been 3 ties).  10 of the last 11 polls have shown Obama with a lead, and the last two polls to show Romney with a "lead" gave him advantages of 2% and 1%.  In other words, out of 27 polls over a 21-month period, Romney has had a lead outside of the 5% margin of error exactly one time.  What does the 5% MOE mean?  It means that even if the race was actually tied among Colorado voters, we'd expect 1 in every 20 (i.e. 5%) polls to show Romney with a statistically significant lead.  In other words, unless pollsters are completely wrong this year, there is no way Romney wins Colorado.  Why in god's name would Adam link to such an obviously crappy article?  (and I'm not even going to get into the journal labeling Colorado as part of the Southwest instead of the Mountain West).  I expect better in MMR!

I've got a question.

We've got paulie posting stuff stolen from an Arabic language site. We've got ahandout posting stuff stolen from a Chinese language site. Here's a link to Republicans misappropriating musicians:

http://www.thestranger.com/slo...

So, if you're a rightwinger, it's either okay to steal stuff from creatives (they're all mostly liberals anyway) or it's okay to steal from foreigners (especially THOSE kinda foreigners).

My question for the rightwingers is this: Which is it? That you have no respect for artists? Or that you have no respect for non-Americans? Or both?

ahandout
ahandout

You don't steal stuff when you link to it, you idiot.  You see all those red highlighted words in the articles on Swampland.  Those are links.  When you click on them with a computer mouse they open up to other articles or photos.

Stealing is when you use copyrighted material to make money, like your friends the Chinese do with everything created here in America.  And your link is to a site complaining that copyright laws are too strict.  Did you even notice what you were linking to?

MomentoMori
MomentoMori

"Stealing is when you use copyrighted material"

Which is what you and your rightwing friends are doing when you take someone else's work and add your silly rightwing slogans to them, and never compensate the original creator. Just because you found it on Google doesn't mean you have permission to use it.

And speaking Chinese does not automatically make you a "Chi-com", the photographer could be Taiwanese or Chinese-American for all you know.

But then privileged thieves like you and paulie don't really care who you're stealing from. You believe that everything belongs to you to use as you please, and you owe nothing to no one.

Is it the truth this time?  And what about the death of Chris Stevens?  Can we have the president get around to telling us the truth on that?  Or, is he too busy appearing on The View.

handy, if you cannot back up what you said, be a man and admit it.

 

but do not try to turn it around; it just proves what kind of a liar you are.

YOU claimed the ambassador was sodomized and torture; back it up

so, you know what the presidant of the united states knows and are in the sam position as he is, to make decisions now..

that is delusional. and pretty lame. you do not see anyone here saying mitt romney is a pedophile here, do you  - because it would be wrong to just start making things up.

i am surprised and disappointed that you cannot find a better way to say you do not like obama than making up stories about dead ambassadors for political gain.

you dishonor the dead. you dishonor your presiden, and you dishonor your country stating the lie about sodomy and torture.

you also dihonor is family by using his death as a prop.

What "truth"? Surely you can provide evidence that your "truth" has merit. Surely you would not be waiting for your "truth" to be confirmed by those who disagree with your "truth".

Maybe your "truth" does not exist, except in your mind.

 In 2007 Romney said that free care in ER's was "socialism".  On 60 Minutes he swears its ok to treat the uninsured in ER's.  One thing you can say for Mitt: if you don't like what he says, just wit five minutes.

RASMUSSEN POLL:   

Michigan: Obama 54%, Romney 42%   

What's this all about, RepubliKKKrappers?

Did Rasmussen join the massive liberal polling and media conspiaracy?  

On the other hand, maybe your "candidate" is a big joke...like we've been telling you for months.
