Calling all Libtards - We're Everywhere!
Hello, Lib-tards. Since we last gathered, stuff happened, some of it meaningful, most of it not. Talk about it here.

Please remember that all opinions are welcome, but this poll is geared towards the liberals here. So it can and often gets heated, so if you can't take the heat stay out of the poll. And let's all remember the CoC. Basically, don't be like our politicians, but disagree without being disagreeable.

I am proud to be one of the 5 or 6 liberals who post here.

To the member who posted that Obama has been a disaster...how much blame do you put upon a disagreeable Congress? When Congressional leaders go public with an agenda to make this a one-term President, basically they are telling America that they are going to keep things status quo until the election. In other words..."F U America, we don't care how bad things are, since you voted for this President, you deserve these hard times".

What they (and those who think like they do) forget is that these hard times started under the previous administration, whose policies their party's candidate embraces. So, if you liked the bang-up job the Bush administration did on our economy, then, by all means, vote Republican! 

If I remember correctly, Republicans ran in 2010 on a platform of  being the party which could create jobs... so...where are the jobs programs? Isn't there a jobs bill sitting in Congress, since September, proposed by President Obama? Here you go, jobs-creating party, show us what you've got...oh, wait...you've been doing that for two years. Obstinence and obstruction is no way to endear yourselves to us...at least to those of us who pay attention.


On to things that are not very meaningful...I recently moved...from a largely Democratic area, to a largely Republican area. Yesterday, I went to vote at my new polling place for the first time, passport in hand (PA recently passed a voter-ID law...I guess this is one of the job-creating ideas of our Republican Governor). I walked into the middle school where I will vote for the forseeable future, and ther was a man with a big grin talking with some other folks. He turned to me, big grin still on his face, held out his hand, and we shook hands. He asked me "Are you a Republican?". When I said no, his grin suddenly disappeared.

That's me...killing grins of Republicans everywhere!

The title for this one refers to a poll elsewhere of a guy claiming there's a ton of Obamaites around here. This despite the fact there's only about 5 or 6 of us who regularly post here as liberals. Everyone else is either:

1.) A conservative up for debate
2.) An alleged "moderate" or "independent" admonishing us for having any interest in politics, even though half the time they get into large debates that dominate the proceedings (also funny how they never admonish the conservatives)

Also, I give you the media Wankers of the Decade. I can't believe it took this for me to discover Atrios. Even better, according to Wikipedia, he got his undergraduate degree at my alma mater, which blows my mind.

Speaking of media BS, please tell me that you all in the real world have been giving certain "controversies" not even one tenth the attention the media around here has? I'm talking things like the Hilary Rosen flap, or the "Obama ate dog" thing, and other crap that is clearly ginned up because it's April and these people don't have better things to do.

Finally, if you're not occupied or hungover on weekend mornings, you must watch Up With Chris Hayes. That is all.

I am a democrat. Who are the other 5? smiley

  as far as the media goes, it's same ole same ole. I am tired of the secret service prostitute scandal already though. why does the government have to make everything so damn complicated. Geez, fire the ones that were screwing the prostitutes and be done with it already.  I love how it has to become, how deep does this really go.(no pun intended). The more we look into this we are finding that higher ups may have known, who gives a crap. Men had sex, not that much of a surprise really.   And seriously, if they were off duty, then it's not that big of a deal. Well. to me anyways. Send them home to their wives for a week and let them deal with it.

The quiz said I side 78% with Gary Johnson, but I'm still voting for Buddy Roemer. Oh and by the way the bottom 2 on my list were Romney and Obama, (36% and 34%) I'm either completely out of step with the rest of America or our system of choosing a candidate is broken.

I think this is a funny story...you all can let me know.

I recently went to my niece's wedding. My sister and brother-in-law are staunch Republicans...reeeeeeeeallly conservative. My sister was arguing with me that I was never a liberal when we were growing up. (Some background...my mother was always a union member, always voted Democratic...loved the Kennedys, loved Obama. My first political hero was Bobby Kennedy...1968, I was 11.) My sister says to me that we were always conservative. She said "Remember, we thought the wildest thing we would ever do is buy Volkswagen vans to travel around in".

BTW...I have never owned a VW van.

I'm a liberal, and yeah I was gone for a while. I don't comment regularly because this (politics, particularly after the last election) is partially the reason I left for a little bit. I find the manner in which people talk about politics the US has become a little disturbing.  The system probably isn't the best  but it's what we have. In my opinion It seems to me the right (Fox News, etc) seems more focused on trying getting President  Obama out of office than focusing on real issues that affect people (Or as it appears that they don't care about anyone except the rich). Not saying that liberals are perfect or not guilty of being just as hateful, but just because there are differences in opinion doesn't mean there has to be so much hatred/vitriol when discussing it. It seems there can be no civil discourse just anger from one side to the other. So gearhead I'm sure there are probably other liberals out there just of different personalities. I appreciate you all giving a voice to those of us on here, who choose to use other means to voice our opinions.

I did the ISideWith thing again and got 91% Green, 68% Dem, 63% Libertarian, 11% Republican.

What I'm finding fascinating is the overlap between Green/Dem and Libertarians. You would think those would be opposites. Is social policy/foreign policy/civil liberties/believing in evolution enough to create that much overlap?
#40 | 899 days ago

Way late but did the ISideWith thing.. got Mesplay at 82%, Obama at 75%, Karger at 67%, and Gary Johnson at 58%. Mittens came in at 15% below Ron Paul, Jimmy McMillan, and R Lee Wrights (who?).  Needless to say, Romney won't get my vote.

By party I'm 82% Green, 75% Dem, 37% libertarian, and 13% Republican. Seems about right to me.

"We face unprecedented challenges in responding to the financial crisis that has gripped our economy for the past year.  Mortgage, securities, and corporate fraud schemes have eroded the public’s confidence in the nation’s financial markets and have led to a growing sentiment that Wall Street does not play by the same rules as Main Street.  Unscrupulous executives,  Ponzi scheme operators,  and common criminals alike have targeted the pocketbooks and retirement accounts of middle class Americans,  and in many cases,  devastated entire families’ futures.  We will not allow these actions to go unpunished….This Task Force’s mission is not just to hold accountable those who helped bring about the last financial meltdown, but to prevent another meltdown from happening."

Holder isn't the problem.  Granted, if he were allowed to do what he's wanted he would have pissed off a ton of Republican and conservatives, but he's been held in a lot by Obama.  Also, there is nothing to impeach Holder on at all.

Gutsy call?

According to Ret. General Jack Keane (Former Vice Chief of Staff for the Army), the United States (Preezy Barry), knew the whereabouts of UBL in the summer of 2010.  UBL was sent swimmin with the fishies in May of 2011.  Almost a year later.

Former Attorney General Michael Mukasey stated that the Obama administration also drafted a memo that would effectively relieve the blame from dear leader should the mission fail, and place said blame at the feet of our military commanders.

By taking a program that, under President Bush, was succesful and had the guns stopped prior to them actually crossing the border.  In this case, Holder's main problem is that he
1. let the program get so entirely out of hand that he had no idea where the guns were, resulting in the deaths of hundreds of Mexican citizens, and not one, but two American agents.

There are great ideas and concepts out there that have been rejected by Congress and we are going with our Plan C or D.

Not true.

Say what you want about President Bush, but the economic collapse actually occurred when both the house and senate were controlled by the democrats.  The war in both Iraq and Afghanistan were supported by the vast majority of the citizens of the United States, including the members of congress who voted to authorize military action,

Since Barry took office, we have experienced 39 straight months of unemployment in excess of 8%.  If the REAL numbers were used, it would be closer to 11%.  As of now, the number of people in the workforce that are considered to be in their "employable" years is at the lowest point since 1981.  President Obama has given literally billions (thats with a F'n B) of dollars to green energy companies that have gone belly up already.  Gas prices suck, food prices suck, and pretty much the economy as a whole sucks.  Three and a half years ago he said if he couldn't fix this thing in three years then he would be a one term president.  Well, yesterday he asked us AGAIN to try to believe in where we will be in four years.  Thats the same F'n thing he said 4 years ago.

Barry is a F'n failure.  Mitt Romney is a p*ss*.  However, given the choice between the two, its pretty clear.

If only there was a law forcing #Santorum to carry his dead campaign to term...


#AllenWest claims half the Dems in Congress are Communist Party members. Critics say half of Allen West is an idiot. #thehalfwiththemouth

Gingrich exits the nomination race $4.3 million in debt. Says he will pay it back by divorcing the debt and suing it for alimony.

Michelle Bachmann endorses Romney, says she can cure his likeability.

Gas prices fall 12 cents. Obama blamed for "War on Things That Come by the Dozen."

Hey, I'm not saying Obama has done a great job.......quite frankly, I am a little disappointed, but,  as far as the unemployment goes, all of that outsource planning and job loss was in place during the last 2 years of Bush's reign. The plans were not carried out until May 2008 (before Obama took office) and were on the rise and have been until Aug 2011 when they have slowly been on the decline,

Bureau of Labor Stats




i will agree that this administration hasn't done much to improve the unemployment but they aren't what caused it either.

As far as the economy goes, the Banks bailouts didn't really help and it has caused a downward spiral.  Can't really blame O for that one, but once again, this admin hasn't done much to improve it and with the UE rate still above 8% with no penalty in place for company's that outsource, we have less people spending.

As for the gas comment, here is a chart that shows that as of Aug 2008 (Bush), the avg. was $4.01, not much different than what it is today, which is $3.87 (avg) as of today 5/7/12.





For me, IMO, I don't trust what any of those f**kers tell us - Republican, Demrocrat. Politicians are Politicians and will say what they want people to hear!!  They always promise what they are going to do when they are in office and NONE OF THEM EVER follow through, thanks in part to Washington not working together to improve what needs to be improved!

Obstinence and obstruction is no way to endear yourselves to us...at least to those of us who pay attention.


On to things that are not very meaningful...I recently moved...from a largely Democratic area, to a largely Republican area. Yesterday, I went to vote at my new polling place for the first time, passport in hand (PA recently passed a voter-ID law...I guess this is one of the job-creating ideas of our Republican Governor). I walked into the middle school where I will vote for the forseeable future, and ther was a man with a big grin talking with some other folks. He turned to me, big grin still on his face, held out his hand, and we shook hands. He asked me "Are you a Republican?". When I said no, his grin suddenly disappeared.

That's me...killing grins of Republicans everywhere! 
I really don't want to get into this conversation, but I have to make a couple comments --- as much as you love your president, I despise him and I don't like Romney either.  The dems' had control of House, the Senate and the White House in 2009 and 2010 -- not one budget was ever passed.  The national debt damn near doubled .. the only jobs that were being created were government jobs and construction in DC.  Joe Biden is walking talking toilet -- a chia pet has more intelligence than he's got.  And I am so sick and tired of hearing how EVERYTHING is Bush's fault -- if that's the truth -- then this Administration has to be worse, because it has done nothing to improve all of the past failures.    I am not a Dem ... I am not a Rep ... I can't stand either party's platform .... the real "enemy" is ourselves for letting those greedy career political hacks continue to take bribes and be puppets for personal gain, while they let the country go down the drain.

There -- I feel a lot better .... I hope I don't come back here to read any responses

Not one budget was passed. - True, give you that.

The national debt damn near doubled. - False

The only jobs that were being created were government jobs and construction in DC.  - Actually, had government jobs just stayed the same we'd be doing way better.  Sadly only PRIVATE SECTOR jobs were being created.

Joe Biden is a walking talking toilet - a chia pet has more intelligence than he's got. - Again,false.

And I am so sick and tired of hearing how EVERYTHING is Bush's Faults -- If that's the truth -- then this Administation has to be worse, because it has done nothing to improve all of the past failures. -- Not everything, that is true, but off the top of my head this adminstration has improved the economy, our standing with other nations, and our pursuit of terrorists like that bin Laden guy. And that's just without even really thinking about the improvements.

I am not a Dem... I am not a Rep.. I can't stand either party's platform - Cool, though I know you're voting for Romney.

the real "enemy" is ourselves for letting those greedy career political hack continue to take bribes and be puppets for personal gain, while they let the country go down the drain. - Sort of true.

I see your response on my wall --- I'm not going to read it. We have never communicated very well -- we don't seem to want to understand what the other is saying and I'm just not going there with you on any political topic....for that, I apologize to you
