"Does Romney know where Syria is?  In the debate, Romney said:
 'Syria is Iran’s only ally in the Arab world. It’s their route to the sea.'
  Syria is clearly not Iran’s route to the sea given that Iraq divides them."

Obama Rattles Romney in Debate
That was the Yahoo News Headline


Obama portrayed Romney as "all over the map" and inexperienced on key national security issues
in theie final debate. Each candidate attempted to paint the other as an untrustworthy commander in chief,
but Romney was less aggressive and he was often on defense in the 90-minute exchange.

"I know you haven't been in a position to actually execute foreign policy—but every time you've offered
an opinion, you've been wrong," Obama said, referencing Romney's initial support for the Iraq war.

Obamal was harshly critical of Romney, and landed a few well-placed zingers. "The Cold War's been over
for 20 years," he said in response to Romney saying that Russia is America's primary geopolitical foe.

He later said, "Well, Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets," in response to Romney's
criticism that America has fewer Navy ships than in the past. "We have these things called aircraft carriers,
where planes land on them. We have these ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines," the president added,
a touch of mockery entering his voice.

So, Romney clearly won the first debate.
Obama won the second and third debates, but not by a great deal.

The race that was once over is now up for grabs.

Obama Aggressive, Romney Limp
Why did the tiger turn into a mouse?


Obama dispensed zingers early and often, from "the 1980s called; they want their foreign policy back"
to "we have these things called aircraft carriers" to jabs about Romney's investments in companies that
did business overseas and outsourced American jobs. Every remark was calculated to suggest that Romney
is out of touch with current events and stuck in failed past Republican policies.

Romney once again frequently referred to the letdowns of the past four years, but because Obama's foreign
policy record is much stronger than his domestic record, it was less effective. He had to give credit for Obama
successes such as killing Osama bin Laden and couldn't articulate how his Syria policy would differ.

Why We Hate Women
  by the Republican party


Sunday on ABC’s This Whore, Greta Van Susteren blasted Democrats for focusing on Romney’s “binders full of women.”
“I know that the Democratic Party is running with that, but… women have heard so much worse…” she said.

Yeah, they have heard worse - and it's all been from the Party you whore for.

Todd Akin says something worse nearly every day. When he told a reporter about “legitimate rape,” even Republicans
seemed appalled - at first.  Since then he’s accused Claire McCaskill (D-MO) of acting like a “fetching dog.”

Wisconsin state Rep Roger Rivard recently said, “Some girls rape easy”—twice.
Former comedian Dennis Miller (I wrote that first) has lambasted Sandra Fluke for having the temerity to believe
her heath insurance should cover basic reproductive health care. Birth control they believe should be settled by a
woman’s employer. Can’t get much worse than that.
The GOP’s platform calls for banning abortion with no exceptions—not even the life of the mother. Congressman
Joe Walsh (R-IL) briefly insisted that there is no instance where an abortion is necessary to save a mother’s life

But Greta is worried that "binder talk" is too rough for the precious ears of women?

Subject: Can you imagine how horrible it must be to watch a lot of TV in Ohio?

Bart. it’s just as bad in Iowa.
Every Romney commercial is so full of lies
they should have disclaimers run before and after them.

And how legal can it be that a family member owns the voting machines in a key state?
This smells like 200 and 2004 all over again. They know they cannot win fairly so they cheat.
Every instance of voter fraud uncovered so far has been by the republicans, and in so many states.

I wish the Democrats would grow some balls and stand up to the cheaters.

Mitt's Boca Etch-A-Sketch
Who was that man in the Thurston mask?

Shortly before Romney’s much-hyped (and ultimately underwhelming) foreign policy speech at VMI,
The New York Times reported that even Romney’s own advisors had no idea what his foreign policy
would look like.  His performance at the final debate must have confirmed their doubts.
On issue after issue, Romney disavowed the same positions that he and his neoconservative advisors
have embraced throughout the campaign. While he successfully distanced himself from the deeply
unpopular Bush bastards, he ultimately left voters with little notion of what he actually believes
when it comes to international affairs.
Unlike the first two debates, Romney spent almost the entire night in Boca Raton agreeing with Obama.

From the first question — on Libya, the topic that Romney clumsily used to attack Obama during the
last debate — it was clear that he would not be playing offense. Although Romney repeatedly criticized
Obama's supposed lack of leadership, he essentially endorsed hispolicies on issue after issue.

How do you debate a guy who keeps saying, "I agree with you?"

The right-wingers must be going CRAZY seeing their champion agreeing with the Negro Muslin Kenyan,
but Prime Directive #1 is to get those dark-skinned people out of the White House - whatever it takes.

Obama is a Mean, Mean Man
by that crazy dried-up hag Gary Bauer


One night last February, Obama was attending a fundraiser in Florida when he spotted a
local Republican activist he knew was close to Marco Rubio, the "next Ronald Reagan."
At the time, Rubio was being discussed as a potential vice presidential pick.
Obama approached the woman and asked, "So, is your boy going to go for it?"
"The woman certainly wasn't expecting this sort of welcome," Politico reporter Glenn Thrush
relates in his new e-book, "Obama's Last Stand." "But she had seen this side of Obama before,
the puckish trash-talker -- not the professor who delivered high-minded lectures to eye-rolling senators."
"I don't know. It could happen," the woman said with a chuckle.
"Well," Obama replied as he moved closer, "tell your boy to watch it. He might get his ass kicked."

I don't buy it.

I'm not saying Obama is above some trash-talking, but to a female?  At a formal gathering?
Yeah, that's how Obama got to be president, - by acting thuggish with rich, white women.

Gee, too bad nobody had a camera or a cell phone or a tape recorder
to catch and record the words the president might accidentally let slip.

Gosh, I'll bet the roomfull of reporters will remember next time.

All we have is the word of the guy trying to sell books.

If he says Obama is an uppity nigger who leers at every white woman he sees,
the fair-and-balanced FOX News will give him the next two weeks of free air time.

Subject: Lance Armstrong

Bart, as much as I admire Armstrong, the evidence is overwhelming that he cheated.

If the evidence is overwhelming, why can't anyone point to it?

Virtually all of his fellow USA postal team members admitted to following along with
the same doping regimen. EPO  was the performance enhancing drug specfically designed
for endurance cyclists that the team used.

In the early stages of its use there was no accurate test for its presence in the blood or urine,
so it went undetected. If you have time to read the conclusions of the report, I am sure that
you will concur that Lance did run afoul of the drug rules.
 M Lamont

I don't understand how the allegation that the test could be fooled
is somehow proof that Armstrong cheated.

Since they admit they had no way to catch cheaters in 1999,
Armstrong should be given the benefit of the doubt.

And if ALL the bikers were doping, how did Lance manage to win each time?

BTW, I have no idea if he cheated or not.

I'm saying once they admit their test was faulty,
how do you screw a guy for consistently winning?

Thurston, the Dithering Bully
  by Robert Reich


I thought the third debate was a clear win for the President. He displayed the authority of the nation's
Commander-in-Chief - calm, dignified, and confident. He was assertive without being shrill, clear without
being condescending. He explained to a clueless Mitt Romney the way the world actually works.
Romney seemed out of his depth. His arguments were more a series of bromides than positions -
"we have to make sure arms don't get into the wrong hands," "we want a peaceful planet," "we need to
stand by our principles," "we need strong allies," "we need a comprehensive strategy to move the world
away from terrorism," and other banalities.
This has been Romney's problem all along, of course, but in the first debate he managed to disguise
his vacuousness with a surprisingly combative, well-rehearsed performance. By the second debate,
the disguise was wearing thin.
In Monday's debate, Romney seemed to wither - and wander.
He often had difficulty distinguishing his approach from the President's,
except to say, repeatedly, "America needs strong leadership."

I didn't hear Obama say this:

"Romney sees a future where America is made stronger by giving more to the super-rich.
I see a future where America is stronger because we gave the middle classs some breathing room.
If you're a one-percenter, I understand why you might  vote for Romney, but if you're in the
99 percent, for Christ's sake, pull your head out and use your f-ing head and vote yourself a raise."

I wonder why I didn't hear that?

Subject: early voting

Actually Bart, out here in OR, early voting is ALL you get. Every registered voter in this state
gets a ballot in the mail. They fill it out at their convenience, and then either return it in the mail,
or drop it off at special ballot boxes setup at government buildings and libraries.

Polling stations? They are so over!

No more standing in line, in the rain. No more dodging protesters on the way in, and reporters on
the way out. No senile volunteers who can't read your signature, and can't hear you when you
pronounce your weird last name. No more line...for a moment of privacy in a flimsy
porta-closet the size of a toaster-oven.

I point out a greater advantage to the Oregon System. The fact is, you don't HAVE to vote in private.
In fact, you can make your vote as public as you'd like. You can vote where you like: in the library,
in the coffee house, in the breakroom at work, in the hospital waiting room, in your car (while not driving),
on the bus or light rail. The possibilities are endless.

Personally, I advocate voting at the bar. You can't drink and drive, but you CAN drink and vote.
And after a few beers, you tend to get loud and proud about the process, and soon, everybody in
the establishment knows that Obama is going to win, because you are putting him over the top.
I find this approach most convincing, for the last thing anybody in this town wants is to tangle
with a mean Irish Chicago democrat.

Because, even a drunk Irishman can win...... simply by listing the facts.

 Subject: George McGovern, American war hero

Loved what you said about McGovern, Bart. 
I was so honored to have this photo taken a few years back with him and his daughter.

 Debbie from Milwaukee

I'm guessing many people don't know how brave McGovern was - from Wikipedia:

McGovern flew 35 missions over enemy territory from San Giovanni, Italy.  His targets were oil refinery
complexes or rail marshalling yards, all as part of the U.S. strategic bombing campaign in Europe.

On a mission over Czechoslovakia, McGovern's plane had one engine out and another in flames after
being hit by flak. Unable to return to Italy, McGovern flew to a British airfield off the Yugoslav coast.
The short field, normally used by small fighter planes, was so unforgiving to four-engined aircraft that
many of the bomber crews who tried to make emergency landings there perished. But McGovern
successfully landed, saving his crew, a feat for which he was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross.
On McGovern's 35th mission, McGovern's plane took 110 holes in its fuselage and wings causing an
inoperative hydraulic system. McGovern's waist gunner was injured, and his flight engineer was so
unnerved he was hospitalized with battle fatigue, but McGovern managed to bring back the plane safely.
He was awarded the Air Medal with three oak leaf clusters

Subject: Republicans

From what I see the Republicans are inhaling fear and exhaling anger.
But the truth is that America has real problems.

Problems that are going to take time to recover from even if we do everything right.
And if we don't do everything right we might not ever recover.

The Republicans have yet to put a plan on the table to we can see if it passes the math test.
I can't vote for someone with an undisclosed plan.

The way I see it, fear and anger is not a good strategy. We need to grow up and act responsibly.
We need to get past fear and anger so we can stand up, dust ourselves off, and as a united country,
start the journey from where we are to where we need to be.
