Election 2012

Can You Believe These Choices?

I'm probably far more amused by this than I should be, regardless I can't stop laughing.

Here's a panel featuring Willie Geist, Mark Halperin, and Joe Scarborough, each of whom are completely dumbfounded as all of their various narratives of a weak President Obama, a resurgent Republican party, and some "white knight" convention-savior vanishes right before their eyes.

Joe looks like he's ready to hang himself in the toilet.

Joe does pose a good question -- who's going to campaign for Mitt?

Observe the energy you see in the offices of OFA across the country this far out from the election, and compare it to regional offices for any of the republican candidates which are comparative ghost towns.

We know Karl Rove and the Koch Brothers are going to pour an unprecedented amount of money into this election, but it will be all for naught if the base doesn't believe in their candidate.

    Joe, looks like he was on an all night bender….wow, he could travel around the world with those bags under his eyes! “And Newt Gingrich…who is Newt Gingrich…” I also liked the conversation about Bush, when Halperin says “grass ruts!”

    Did they really say they hope for a “white” knight?

      LOL and I bet they didn’t even notice.

    It’s not like they shouldn’t have seen this coming. Really, look at the clowns in the car. What part of this outcome was not obvious from the beginning of the circus?

    The only thing that could improve this would be to add a Price Is Right Fail soundbed.

    Mika looks like she’s ready give Joey Starbucks a hug and let him cry on her shoulder.

    Well, considering how well the bubble is holding, conservatives will see their cause as sound. After doesn’t EVERYBODY resent a POTUS with such a swarthy complexion? Doesn’t EVERYBODY hate socialism, worship Reagan, and shouldn’t everybody be concerned what women do with their sexual organs?

    This is the opportunity to strike the blow that kills.

    Kill not the GOP, nor their bubble, but the foundational myth of the Reagan Narrative. Now is the time for President Obama to harpoon that whale of a lie, sink the barbed point between it’s vertebrae and haul it in for display.

    The death of the Reagan narrative will destroy every misrepresented idea that depends on fallacy and faith to keep the masses in line. Maybe once the idea is dead, conservatives will have a rational base, and thoughtful ideas can replace blind dogma.

      I don’t think you can kill the Reagan narrative. Not so long as Roger Ailes has a cable channel devoted to keeping it alive 24/7.

        Unfortunately, I agree with you D_C. Things based on faith take on a life of their own. It has to be replaced or the people that believe it have to die out (and I don’ t mean they should die, but that as they age and fail to pass on such beliefs to younger generations then the faith will fade away with them). Rational argument is not going to get us anywhere precisely because they do live in the “bubble”.

    Classic video, thanks for sharing. LOL Sadly, it will still be a very close election which is a commentary on our nation as a whole.

  • Bob McIntosh

    …and speaking of the Koch Brothers™ it seems they are trying to take over the Cato Institute to gain intellectual ammunition for their causes. Sheesh!

  • sherifffruitfly

    (shrug) That’s the predictable result, when your only REAL motivation is that the current President is black.

    Fuck ‘em. Let them choke and die on their own bigoted bile.
