Fair tax only if you first repeal the income tax.

The fact is that most of the lefts' voters belive deeply in the fiction they are being fed every day.

Truth, to them , is hate speech.

They prefer faux foam pillars, and Photoshpped candidates who pretend to be Christians and love America, who tickle their ears with thhe deceit they long to hear.

GarandFan:

Maxine Waters likes to bitch about CEO compensation and bonuses - but was never bothered by Franklin Raines $6 MILLION bonus as head of Fannie Mae - just before it and the housing market tanked.

Re # 13: If you think I'm happy with the President's performance in office so far you're even more stupid than your comments here on Wizbang make you look. However, my criticisms of Obama differ somewhat from yours. I can think of names to call Obama worse than jug-eared Kenyan socialist usurper affirmative-action-baby America-hatin' Muslim narcissist-in-chief. Much, much worse.

Like "Republican-lite" for example.

Bruce Henry:

Oh, I voted for him, all right. Who else was I going to vote for, John "I Never Had a Principle I Wouldn't Abandon at the Drop of a Hat" McCain?

And, sigh, I probably will vote for him in 2012, too. The GOP choices, at least so far, range from dummies like Palin and Bachmann, to hypocritical "intellectuals" like Gingrich and Ryan, to bland say-anything McCain-types like Pawlenty and Romney, to hucksters like Trump and Huckabee, to full-on fucking lunatics like Cain. Who should I vote for?

Wait, I know... maybe Fred Thompson! Sure, that's the ticket.

jim m:

Bruce is going to vote for obama again because he doesn't know who else to vote for. Seriously.

He doesn't want to vote or someone who is going to continue our involvement in the immoral wars in Iraq and Afghanistan...

He doesn't want to vote for someone who would keep open Gitmo and secret prisons for interrogation overseas...

He doesn't want to vote for someone who will keep the Bush tax cuts for the rich...

He doesn't want to vote for someone who will continue the practice of opaque government and crafting of legislation behind closed doors where the public cannot see what is going on with the running of the nation...

Sigh, Oh well maybe it's that he is hoping for a full implementation of obamacare where everyone will have the same access to health care...except for the millions covered by the thousands of exemptions that will get better healthcare than the rest of us forced into a government run plan.

Sorry Bruce I guess you are left with you just want to vote for the dems because you prefer their cradle to grave social fascism and corrupt cronyism to the GOP which is at least paying lip service to personal freedom and responsibility.

Bruce Henry:

Well, if the Republicans nominate Romney I might consider him. If we're going to have a president who will spit in the eye of his base and give away his best negotiating position to the opposition before negotiations begin, I'd just as soon that Prez was a Republican.

Hey, Jim M, I think it's hilarious that you are criticizing Obama for taking positions YOU AGREE WITH. Or, not exactly criticizing, really. Just taking snarky potshots because ANYTHING Obama does must be wrong, correct? Or, even if it's not wrong, it must be ridiculed, because it's Obama, after all.

Oh, and "paying lip service" is exactly right, rube. Mouthing empty slogans while selling out to Big Oil, Wall Street, Big Insurance, Big Pharma. Don't make me laugh with your pathetic slogans. Try my favorite Tea Party slogan instead: "Keep Your Government Hands Off My Medicare!"

Let me turn this around on you geniuses. Is there ANYONE the GOP might nominate who is too wacky for you? Not Herman Cain? Not Trump? Not Ron Paul? I'm not asking you to say you'd vote for Obama. Just if there's any potential GOP nominee you WOULDN'T vote for.

McCain was/is too much like Lindsey Gramnesty. Don't really know too much about Ron Paul. Trump seems to have a good head on his shoulders, Is business savy and actually likes the Country unlike Obama.

Bruce Henry:

Oh, and also, too, Jim, do you not think we should have fought the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan? Do you think Gitmo should be closed? Do you not support extending the Bush tax cuts for everyone, including the richest of the rich?

That's what I mean about conservatives, and specifically YOU, Jim. When it comes to Obama you don't wanna take yes for an answer.

That's what I mean about conservatives, and specifically YOU, Jim. When it comes to Obama you don't wanna take yes for an answer.

Obama ran on the opposite of those policies and his supporters wanted those policies. Nowhere did I say that I did not agree with those policies. In fact I do agree with them.

Once more so you can understand:

I am laughing at you. I am laughing at you because you are supporting a man who has lied to you at every turn and has continued those policies that you and the rest of the left abhorred so much when Bush was President. I am laughing at you because you don't seem to mind as long as it is your guy doing it.

jim m:

Oh and I don't think I have to worry too much about deciding whether or not to vote for Romney. He won't make it that far.

jim m:

Bruce I think it is funny that you think we don't want to accept it that obama has conceded that the Bush policies on Iraq and taxes were right. We do accept that, but we know that he doesn't agree, but he has been forced to accept the reality that he cannot do what he wants.

Conservatives accept the victory but do not give credit to the man who would have done the opposite had he not been forced to. We don't support the man who does not believe the same way we do. But we laugh at those who support him and now agree with his actions when just a couple of years ago they were saying the opposite.

Let me type it slowly so yo... (Below threshold)
Bruce Henry:

Let me type it slowly so you can understand, Jim.

I don't support keeping Gitmo open. I opposed Iraq from the start, but realize that getting out slowly, as Obama is doing, is the only way to get out. I supported Bush's initial action in Afghanistan but never bargained for, and was never told we were in for, a 13 year long quagmire. I support keeping taxes on the poor and middle class low but wish Obama would have fought harder - hell, fought AT ALL - to raise them back up to Clinton-era rates on the rich, if not on the $250K/yr folks at least on the $1M/yr people. So I don't agree with everything the President has done, and I'm particularly disappointed in his actions that resemble a third Bush term.

But this discussion (at least since I jumped in) was never about me blindly supporting Obama no matter what. It's about whether or not I will vote for Obama again next year, given my likely GOP alternatives. Which candidate in the GOP field are you wildly enthusiastic about, Jimbo?

I'm gonna have to chose, next year, between Obama and one of the Seven Dwarfs the GOP will nominate. If it's one I've seen already, I'll have to choose Obama, who, as disappointing as he's been to me, is at least not a fanatic, a carny barker, or an idiot.

Although I was serious when I said I'd consider Romney as the Republican who would probably be most like Obama - spineless, overly ambitious, and willing to say anything to get elected and reelected.

jim m:

Bruce,

I like how you paint the GOP as selling out to big oil and wall street when obama is joined at the hip with BP and Goldman-Sachs. Maybe you should pull your head out of your ass and see who is really selling out.

I also note that you didn't object to my characterization of obamacare. Maybe you would like to explain how it isn't hypocritical to demand socialized medicine and march in the streets for obamacare like he unions did and then run for the hills and get exemptions so they don't have to actually comply with the monstrosity. Or maybe that's because you belong to an exempt organization and don't want to say anything.

jim m:

Although I was serious when I said I'd consider Romney as the Republican who would probably be most like Obama - spineless, overly ambitious, and willing to say anything to get elected and reelected.

Well, at least I see we agree on one thing. But then I see that as the reason why he won't win the nomination. The MSM will tout him and Trump all the way to the convention in hopes that they will win, but Romney has Romneycare hanging around his neck like an anchor and Trump is nothing more than a side show.

The MSM likes them because they are so flawed. But that's not who will win the nomination.

Who WILL, Jim? And who will... (Below threshold)
Bruce Henry:

Who WILL, Jim? And who will you be supporting in the primaries?

Not one of you ABO voters will say which one of the bumper crop of presidential wannabes the Republicans are considering so far you think would make a good president, or even a good candidate.

Again, genius, every election in this country boils down to two candidates with a realistic chance of winning: the Democrat and the Republican. I've been voting since 1972, and nearly every election has been between the lesser of two evils. I've always found the Democrat to be that, although in retrospect, maybe I'd take my Dukakis vote back.

Seeing the posts you make, 914, I doubt you're capable of embarrassment.

jim m:

Who WILL, Jim? And who will you be supporting in the primaries?

Gee Bruce, if I knew that I wouldn't have to work for a living would I? I'm sure someone in Vegas would take that bet.

As for who I will support it is far too early to say. No one has officially declared and most of who the media promotes are not going to go anywhere and deservedly so. Romney won't win and neither will Huckabee. Both lack anything to recommend themselves other than ambition.

It's over a year away from the convention. There is no need to feel like I have to choose a candidate now.

So how do you know who you ... (Below threshold)
Bruce Henry:

So how do you know who you will vote for, Jim? Suppose the Republicans nominate Herman Cain. Do you think Herman Cain would make a good president? Do you think he could prevail in a series of one-on-one debates with Obama?

What about Ron Paul? Do you want to support Paul's foreign policy? Do you think dismantling the American Empire is a good idea? I think Paul has advocated cutting defense spending by at least a third. Would you support that as opposed to Obama's defense policies?

I would vote for Herman Cai... (Below threshold)
Sky Captain:

I would vote for Herman Cain without hesitation.
Cain was a businessman, unlike Homer J. Obama - who never has had a real job.
Cain understands the pitfalls of massive government, and understands the US gov't has a spending problem.
For those that care, Cain is also black, unlike Obama.

Given his experience host a radio talk show,Herman Cain would absolutely kick Teh Won's ass during a debate.

Rodney Graves:

bwuce is in quite a flurry tonight...

0bama has come around to W's position on most everything associated with the GWOT. He's initiated a new "war of choice" which he is fucking up by the numbers. Doing the right thing for all the wrong reasons (more precisely, not stated reason at all) and incompetently at that earns him no credit. He's never bothered to explain why he has changed on all these issues, and the rubes who voted for him intend to do so again.

Brand Democrat 2012: Stuck on Stupid on the cosmic scale!

P. S. The only Republican I'd not vote for (assuming 0bama is renominated) is luaP noR.

John:

How on earth could the republicans put up anyone worse the Obama? It's not possible, every one of them is preferable, even the side show freak that is Donald Trump would be better than Elmer Gantry Obama.

James Cloninger:

Hey, GarandFan, you know that's not Maxine Waters, right?

That's an actress doing a caricature.

Hard to tell the difference.
