Enjoy it Dems, you just elected the least qualified president in American history
________________________________________
You won today. You will have your Democratic Congress and President to gloat over for the next few weeks or so, your "countdown to January 20th" signatures at the ready, you'll have your revenge for 2004 when your Republican coworkers and friends busted your balls everyday over Kerry's concession speech, and you'll have your change. You will be able to somewhat disingenuously say that you were a part of history, that you made a difference, and that your candidate will make a difference for the better of this country. After all it was never about what he stood for, what he did, who he was, or why he was running after 150 unaccomplished days in the Senate; it was about winning and sticking it to an outgoing President who has been blamed for everything from the current economic crisis to the World Trade Center attacks. It wasn't about substance, it was about theatrics, looks, college degrees, styrofoam Greek columns, and calling anyone who disagreed with you an ignorant redneck. I guess this is just retribution for all of the tired insults you took over the past eight years for not supporting Bush, but then again now it's your turn so who cares about what your candidate can do or has done?

You wanted Obama? Great, you got Obama. And with Obama you got a man who has most likely accomplished less than the candidates who are running for mayor in your hometown this election, someone who used his election to the Senate as a launching pad for higher office, rather than as a mandate by his constituents to serve the community who elected him. You have a man whose sole "qualification" to be president rests on the fact that he can speak well, that he went to Harvard, and that he is black; a candidate whose knowledge of economics extends only as far as "social justice" is concerned and a candidate who was prepared to lose the war in Iraq in 2006 when it was a popular idea. But never mind that, McBush lost and you made Republicans mad, it's not about making this country better, if you wanted that you could have voted for Bill Richardson in your party's primary. It was about winning the battle to have someone with a different color of skin pigment become president before the Republicans did, regardless of qualification, ideology, or affiliation and Obama wrote two books and spoke at the DNC convention so therefore you went with him, rather than an accomplished governor with a real legacy of change.

You wanted bipartisanship? Unity among Republicans and Democrats, rich and poor, black and white, young and old? Well then congratulations, you just elected a candidate who is as partisan to the left as John Ashcroft was to the right. Someone who has never worked across the aisle for any bill with political baggage attached to it, against a candidate who is hated by his own party for siding with yours. McCain voted to confirm Ginsburg and Breyer to the Supreme Court, passed the McCain-Feingold bill with vitriolic GOP opposition, worked with Democrats on anti-smoking laws against his own party, ran against Bush in 2000 and was his main Republican critic throughout his term in office, who publicly called for Rumsfeld's resignation in the last election, who sponsored an unsuccessful bill to cap carbon emissions with Democrats, and who sponsored the McCain-Kennedy bill on immigration reform which made him the punching bag of conservative talk radio well into this election. Somehow you managed to turn this otherwise honorable and open minded senator into an old, decrepit, thoughtless stooge of the Republican Party, you valued words over actions and took Obama's claim that McCain is the same as Bush at face value. This isn't to say that McCain is a good candidate, just to remind you guys as to how full of sh*t you are when you say you are for bipartisanship and change.

But again, it wasn't about the issues, it was about winning, and what could be more important than that? Now you guys can brag about how Obama is a "breath of fresh air after eight years of hell" around the water cooler/student's lounge and how you made a difference by voting, something which ranks somewhere between spelling your name and tying your shoes in the grand list of human accomplishments. Now you have a candidate who will withdraw the troops from Iraq without so much as a second thought of the consequences, who will meet unconditionally with every tyrant hell bent on militarily or politically defeating the West, who will enact New Deal era policies in a time of economic contraction, who will tax the public for a "global poverty initiative", who will spend hundreds of billions more on failing over-funded public schools, government housing, "promise neighborhoods", "green" jobs, and in subsidies for failing corporations like GM simply to support already enriched labor unions.

Savor the victory, I know I did in 2004 when Kerry's concession speech was broadcast in the diner my liberal friend (and Kerry campaign organizer) and I were in. Just remember that this wasn't change we believed in, it is change you believed in. The ball is in your court now, and if Barack Obama cannot deliver then you won't have big bad Bush to hang the blame on.

There is some thought among economists that FDR's policies extended the Depression longer than it would have otherwise been. Then, of course, you have those Illuminati people who believe that the Depression couldn't have ended until FDR gave them more power, so who really knows?

If he's simply adopting unvetted opinions from the conservative echo chamber either here or online or on talk radio, it's very much groupthink.

That's a nonsequitor that doesn't make any sense, because where you present your opinion has nothing to do with groupthink.

I know it's been a rough couple days for you, but jesus.

Mental age.

Oh - I thought you were inquiring about my junk - which kinda looks likes 3 tuna cans stacked together.

I'm probably older than you - kinda irritating having your grammar linked to your intelligence isn't it. My mission has been accomplished then. If you want to b!tch at some one, talk to Banyon or Dirk_needled!ck. That is their shtick.

I guess the same goes for you. Did someone tell you to say this or did you think of it on your own?


Please. If that's your tactic you should cut and paste my quote alter it and throw an FYP in there.

Last I checked they weren't the ones who told me "I was acting like a dick" for not agreeing with them. Your deflection is cute, however ignorant. This isn't a high school paper. That being said there are no marks--for good grammar, bad grammar, or otherwise. Like I stated before, if all you got in an argument is your grammar you ain't got much.

Not rough at all. And you're wrong about my argument being a non sequitur. The fact that KCJohnny demonstrates his willingness to buck the popular sentiment in our little world is evidence that he's not subject to groupthink. Not proof positive, but evidence. You understand the concept of evidence, don't you?

Your lack of win in this thread concerns me. Set your phaser to "fabulous" and try again.

I hate to correct you, but I will. KCJohnny is groupthinking, the fact that he is not in the majority is of no consequence.

What's the difference between you and KCJohnny except that you are less likely to go it alone with an opinion and the fact that your local "clique" is bigger than his? :shrug:

You don't HAVE to demean him by trying to make the case that he's more influenced by groupthink than any of the rest of us.

I never compared his opinion to anyone else, you did. I don't particularly have a clique. Personally if you took a poll my views would be extremely different than most people whom you refer to as my "clique"

Dude - you need to chill. Look at my posts. I have contributed nothing to this thread. I have said nothing about the original post other than the kid must be stupid because he didn't capitalize 'Styrofoam'. I didn't try to contribute to this thread. All I did was demonstrate the absurdity of judging people's intelligence based on minor grammatical or spelling errors on a website board.

This is the tool that Banyon and Dirk_Sucksameandick use to discredit an argument. FYI - they are members of the party of inclusion and acceptance.

My point is I didn't hit you like I was being a dick. I stated my opinion which is and I quote "if you go to spelling to justify that you're smarter you should just automatically notch up a loss" to which you implied I was being a dick

My statement didn't apply specifically to you. It was my opinion that I believe applies to all.

Your statement appeared to me as an attack. We all know the importance of defending our good names in such an important format as this. :D It appeared to me you were egging it on, which sadly I was drawn into like a fly in a bugzapper.

I apologize if there are any hard feelings.

I wish I could spell more gooder too!!!! I was just fvcking around in general but I have had certain people act like if I make a spelling error, it negates my opinion. Hell - Banyon had a spelling error in a post criticizing my spelling error. I'm just pointing out how stupid it is.

Sorry I used you as an example. No hard feelings.

Only the most pollyannish optimist could hold out hope for him to turn things around and eventually rise above awful.

The kid is/was wise beyond his years:

You wanted Obama? Great, you got Obama. And with Obama you got a man who has most likely accomplished less than the candidates who are running for mayor in your hometown this election, someone who used his election to the Senate as a launching pad for higher office, rather than as a mandate by his constituents to serve the community who elected him. You have a man whose sole "qualification" to be president rests on the fact that he can speak well, that he went to Harvard, and that he is black; a candidate whose knowledge of economics extends only as far as "social justice" is concerned and a candidate who was prepared to lose the war in Iraq in 2006 when it was a popular idea.
