You guys are fucking jokes.
[queue Paul Harvey intro music]
And now you know, The Rest of the Story.
You've got the argument wrong. It's not that "we have succeeded with the government so now we need to pay...again". It's that "we have succeeded with the government, so it's important to continue...
He not combining them, he's saying there is a role for both and that the relationship can be one that benefits private business. He contrasts that view with the plan endorsed by Romney to cute...
I directly quoted Obama, so that is what he said.
Having a social safety net in a democratic society and being subjected to rule by decree in a dictatorship are completely different issues.
See post #14.
Ah, right, I forgot that supporting popular uprisings that seek to establish democratic rule was a bad thing.
To quote Rice:
Democratic Peace Theory, my friend.
Obama supports terrorists! I support terrorists! We all support terrorists, hurrah!
I honestly don't know what the fuck you're talking about, so please be more specific. Dig my head out for me,...
For someone who says imagination means nothing, you sure are flexing yours.
From a speech last month:
Same basic message but expanded. Ultimately, it's a "compare and contrast" speech.
Inference is a useful tool.
I can only lol.
Dividing troops in order to fight a two-front war and combining troops to fight a one-front war are not the same policies. There's no inconsistency in criticizing the former while pursuing the latter.
You can't build a business without utilizing the benefits of society, no.
And yes, saying government research invented the internet so businesses could make money off of it is a stupid thing to...
In the full quote it's obvious he was saying that even if you've built a thriving business, you didn't build the infrastructure that allows your business to succeed.
That's not socialism.
That's because I consider it nonsense. It would be like saying Rice helped Hamas rise to power through her endorsement of democratic elections in Palestine.
Last I checked, the Iraq War is over. Insurgent violence continues but for us the war is over. There are more troops in Afghanistan but that wouldn't count as a mark against Obama in an attack ad....
Sure, but they'd have a lot less useful ammunition against someone like Tim Pawlenty.
I'm not saying that's my view, I'm just telling you how voters will see it. Granted, I could be wrong but I think Romney would be better served by choosing someone who is seen as a blue collar,...
It wouldn't be about tactics - that's not really what voters care about - it would be about results. Condi was the NSA when we went into Iraq and the public broadly opposes that war, now. The tough...
She is more than qualified but it would be a bad selection politically, in my opinion. She and Romney would be put in a position where they had to defend Bush era foreign policy. I can only see that...
To the first bolded section: Moody's Mark Zandi and Alan Binder (a former Vice-Chairman for the Fed's Board of Governors) wrote a paper titled "How the Great Recession Was Brought to and End". In...
I've already made the argument numerous times and all I'm told is that Fed papers don't matter, CBO data is irrelevant, statistics are worse than damned lies, etc.
Here's why they were different:...
