FL/VA were always going to be close...

The amount of thought and planning that has gone into this is unprecedented.

Which shows how scared they are...

Those numbers are not even good economics, let alone good politics.

Unemployment is 8%. Millions more have given up hope, and have stopped looking for work (these people are excluded from the unemployment figure). Many are clinging to part-time jobs when they wish they had a full-time job (this is not reflected in the unemployment figure). Obama has created the first administration in history to run trillion dollar deficits for an entire presidential term. None of this held true in 1984. There is a reason why Reagan won 49 states and Obama will be lucky to get 270 EVs.

Furthermore, we had a severe spike in the deficit in 2008, so of course Obama's "debt growth rate" is going to be significantly lower than a number of previous presidents. The debt growth rate is not the problem; perpetual trillion dollar deficits cannot exist, and this is the problem. Is Obama going to pledge tonight to not allow the tax rates to revert back to pre-2001 levels on January 1? Or is he going to pledge to cut spending? He needs to do one or the other because we cannot run a trillion dollar deficit year-in, year-out.

AMERICA WILL NOT GO THE WAY OF A SOCIALIST HELLHOLE.

That's kind of fortunate since it's not even close... not even a good socialist hell-hole..

You'd never think a dog in an unfamiliar situation, cornered by a stranger ... would react strangely...

If he was genuinely concerned, all he had to do was disable it... not shoot it multiple times...

The puppy was shot MULTIPLE times before it died at the hospital. The police officer needs to be given the death penalty as far I'm concerned.

What the flying . This is the stupidest thing I've ever read on this board.

FTR, I don't endorse the conclusion.. but I do think excessive force or cruelty to animals is criminally under-punished.

This may or may not make a difference in Florida, but it makes Nevada safe and Colorado quite likely.  Unfortunately it doesn't help in Ohio or Virginia where a different racist plot is afoot.

I have some herbal anti-anxiety pills ... I can send some to you...

Don't worry opebo, you've got a new video to freak out over...
8257  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: How does the "Video" affect Obama's chances? on: October 03, 2012, 05:25:58 am
It's a 'dog whistle.' It's about getting the base out to vote.

Which is a pretty awful indictment of the Romney Campaign if they're still worried about their base turning out...
8258  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: What more does a candidate need to do to lose a Presidential election? on: October 03, 2012, 05:24:41 am
It's without doubt, the WORST campaign since McGovern... even McCain/Palin was more coherent and stable than this... if the economy was good, Obama would be 10% ahead at least...

However, the combination of the wonky economy and you know... the black thing, means his ceiling is about what he got in 2008... unless Romney literally has a meltdown on live TV.

8259  Election Archive / 2012 U.S. Presidential General Election Polls / Re: NJ-Rutgers/Eagleton Poll: Obama+17 on: October 03, 2012, 01:43:03 am
Alright, either all these state polls are wrong or all these national polls are wrong, because Obama seems to be at or above his 2008 numbers in every state but only polling 3% ahead of Mitt Romney nationally.

Yeah... this is starting to get really confusing...

I don't see any evidence that Obama is hemorrhaging support in red states (blue... ugh, you know what I mean), considering the polling out of the solid dem states is starting to look 2008-like, the swing state polling is a bit all over the place... but still positive for Obama... only IN and MO look weaker for Obama. But there will be some drop-offs in the Obama swing states like Iowa and New Hampshire and Colorado and Nevada.

But yes, the state polling and the national polls are telling different albeit similar stories.

So...are you planning to have him rare or medium-rare?
There are NO jokes in this thread.  This is the most serious of issues.  New puppies are more sacred than abortion.  Tastier too!

At least you've figured that part out... gaawwwd
I learned puppies were tasty a long time ago, but back to the subject of pictures of abortions.


Is that the poster for Batman and Robin?

Congrats!  New dogs are fun...and they pee everywhere.  Crate train him, early.  It will save you headaches later.

And don't let the bleeding hearts get to you.  It's ok to not buy from the pound.  (unless you bought from a puppy mill or the mall, in which case you should be shamed publicly)  The dog that will die probably deserved it.

Where the f*** did that come from...

He already endorsed Romney.

You're not that naive JJ lol
8266  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Mitt Romney vs. John McCain on: October 02, 2012, 11:21:52 pm
It's sooooo hard, there are so many McCains and Romneys to choose from!!!

I think Romney is fundamentally harmless...  so probably him ... just.
8267  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Bought a puppy today! on: October 02, 2012, 11:14:15 pm
I like dogs, but I'm a cat person.

I adopted my little black monster from the RSPCA last year, he was already 6 months old, so I missed the mega cute kitten phase, but he's such a character and clearly has Burmese in him, because he never shuts up lol... kinda like me.

But he's super affectionate and likes people, much more like a dog than a cat.

But puppies are a LOT more work than kittens... a lot.

"I don't understand how the welfare state and the American Dream are mutually exclusive."

Some people actually want to earn money and provide for themselves.

You really don't understand that much do you?
8270  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: Will Drudge finally release the Whitey Tape tonight?!? on: October 02, 2012, 10:02:41 pm
Wait - because Obama's president, that means everything is OK?
8271  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: Will Drudge finally release the Whitey Tape tonight?!? on: October 02, 2012, 09:15:01 pm
Why release the Whitey tape now? Better to wait until two weeks before the election, like Gore did with the DUI secret in Bush's closet.

Because the Whitey Tape doesn't exist? Just a thought...
8272  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: How does the "Video" affect Obama's chances? on: October 02, 2012, 08:53:53 pm
It was a reasonable speech, so the only people who think this will make a difference are people who aren't going to vote for Obama anyway...
8273  Election Archive / 2012 U.S. Presidential General Election Polls / Re: NBC/WSJ National: Obama +3 on: October 02, 2012, 08:51:50 pm
Looks like Democratic enthusiasm is waning.

Yeah... that's looking somewhat different to recent LV v RV gaps...

Subtly changing your dialect/accent to match who you're talking to (whether it's in a speech or to just a random person) is a natural thing that all people do. There's nothing political about it. I'm sure someone on this forum who knows more about sociolinguistics can fill us in.

It's actually often an unconscious thing that people do.

Apparently when I'm more 'trashy' parts, my accent is a little-less polished. I certainly don't deliberately do it, lol.
