What the GOP really thinks about Obama

Races for the Senate, U.S. House, etc. and other issues of national importance.

From Henry's link:

Referring to unexplained "executive orders" and other documents that Obama and "his minions have filed," Head said, "regardless of whether the Republicans take over the Senate, which I hope they do, he is going to make the United States Congress and he's going to make the Constitution irrelevant. He's got his czars in place that don't answer to anybody."


Sounds suspiciously like our resident genius, John Henry. I wonder if Judge Head has been reading Drudge.

But wait. He's not trying to intimidate anybody. He's just stating facts, plain and simple.
"I can't tell anyone to vote," he said. But he wants to make sure his workers made an informed choice. "I want my employees to be educated on what could happen to their future if the wrong person is elected."


He'll be fine. He'll still have the largest new house in America. THEIR lives will suck if Obama gets elected, regardless of which way they vote.

It's just the way it is.

So if you don't want those poor workers to lose their jobs, you better vote Romney. Your choice.

Oh come on now, both sides do it! Everyone recalls the long list of stories that made the news about Democratic "job creators" threatening employees to vote for Obama in '08, right?

Right?

Look, Obama is a corporatist tool. He is for sale to the highest, richest bidders. There is effectively no difference between him and Bush I or II, Clinton, Romney, McCain etc. They are all out to enrich themselves and the oligarchs who own them.

So, I find it absolutely hilarious that the effing morons on the right who are middle/working class and basically willingly carry water for any ultra-rich politician with an (R) after their name are so deluded and so cognitively impaired that they must scream from their trailer tops how Obama is a socialist, a marxist, a foreigner, a muslim...with such apoplectic rage. This, when Obama is basically "their" man and does everything Bush did, McCain would have, and Romney will do.

The only outlier I can think of is core racism. They cannot find any socially acceptable outlet for this fundamental racism and so they use any and every outlet to channel their hate, even when it is non-sensical or coompletely absurd.

Trailer tops, eh? Stereotype much? Of course, "stereotyping is not the same as racism." As long as it's white people you're stereotyping, or black Republicans. Try some black stereotypes and see how innocent everybody thinks they are. What's bad for the goose is bad for the gander.

But it's not surprising that racism is the only reason you can think of that working class people would not vote for a Democrat. Nevermind political philosophy or the argument over the role of government, no these working class voters are just stubborn kids on Christmas eve who don't want any presents because Santa Claus is black.

Yeah, that's a rational argument, grim.

More plausible explanation: lefties like yourself are quite visibly delusional, and a large number of sensible individuals are only too happy to avoid a ticket whose platform includes one or any of your insane legislative goals. They take one look, one whiff, one listen to your adolescent, evangelical ravings and very wisely decide they want no part of a party that has any place for your hysterical, new age drivel.

Wait, did I just get stereotype/racism concern trolled?

Way to ironically engage in exactly the kind of cognitive dissonance and self delusion I am decrying: racism is the only reason I can think for why working class tea-tards would pretend that Rmoney is their savior and Obama is "hurr-durr socialeest, mooslim eevil inkarnit" when they are almost exactly the same animal. Their views on the role of government are exactly the same, you monstrous tool. To destroy the working and middle class and to turn the ultra rich (and themselves) into Richie Rich.

Nice Democrat straw-man as well. "My insane legislative goals?"..."no part of a party that has any place for my..."? It really is bread and circuses for you fucking assclowns, isn't it?


Oh, and I already voted by Absentee ballot for a 3rd party candidate. Who it was is irrelevant right? I "wasted" my vote after all.

Yes, yes...I know you are used to passivity and a rather disingenous civility from your ideological opponents. A part of the problem if you ask me. Just encourages you clowns to run roughshod. I can understand if it sticks in your craw when someone gives you a beat down instead of rolling over for you.

Dear Mr. Grimley, could you enlighten us "effing morons on the right" and Obama the "corporatist tool" followers on the left are to do? You appear to be giving a lot of critcism, but I'm not hearing much more than noise. The race card, tweedle dee and tweedle dum, self delusion , yada... yada... yada. Do tell, we await your guidance.

And what's up with 3 years since you joined and only 15 posts starting in July of this year? Are you channeling your inner Sheppy?
