Lamborghini making an SUV.
No, that is not an SUV, it is a FWIT (F***ing What Is That?).
This is like surgically altering a cat to be an alligator that is vegan. It fails on every single level measurable to mankind.
William Kristol is not perfect but (a) I like him, and (b) I respect his opinion. It’s no secret that Romney isn’t the guy I’d pick to be president but in a choice between him and Obama I’ll take Romney and dance in the streets (while still hoping for that giant asteroid strike, but still happier than I would otherwise be).
I do believe his take on what it will take to beat Obama. Act like a president… like a LEADER. He’s quite correct that to get down in the mud and poo-flinging trenches with the dems is a losing battle since they are much better at petty sh*t.
But if he allows the race to degenerate into name-calling and gotcha gimmicks, he could lose. Democrats are better than Republicans at the small and nasty stuff. – William Kristol
I agree. I have run into this firsthand with several liberals. When you try to have an intellectual debate and they find themselves confronted with a well reasoned argument that they don’t like they storm away angrily and offended at your gall for your un-compassionate misanthropic world-view. This happened one day at work as I discussed Global Warming with a liberal co-worker. Every statement he uttered was a textbook bullet-point. When he claimed that only 3% of scientists held views counter to AGW, I looked at him with utter disbelief and flat out told him that he needs to stop reading the propaganda and actually research rather than parrot off things that are completely false. He then stormed away muttering “Well, maybe YOU don’t care about destroying your children’s world but I won’t do that to MY children.”
Hey, if he truly believes that, I can commend him on his principles and devotion to his children. But I can also call him out for making arguments that are outlandish and supposedly are self-evident and self-supporting, needing no defense or foundation.
See the thought process there? “Well, why not? If they won’t listen to me, I have every right to burn down their homes.” Lot of ego wrapped up in that broken toy.
So Romney needs to ignore every damn thing Obama says. He needs to talk about what he will do and not once attack Obama. He needs to be of the mindset that he can say something that cuts his opponent deeply and gives them pause about pulling such crap while staying classy and move right along to the important things.
He doesn’t have the luxury for getting bogged down in the childish antics of the buffoon that currently holds the office that I admire. I once got to see Clinton speak and it was an honor to see the President, it was repulsive to see Clinton. The two can co-exist. I don’t know if I could pull it off so easily if Obama had been in that place at that time. At least Clinton has brains. He actually did know how to lead. I disagreed with damn near everything he stood for but I’d take him over what we have now.
There are some things that are just so weird that when you try to dress it up and claim that the condition needs “acceptance” I don’t even consider the notion, such as with liberalism. Also, phantom genitalia fall under that rainbow-colored umbrella of bizzarro-ness. Thank you, FARK.
