Can we stop talking about lipstick and start talking about the issues?

September 11th, 2008 | by Steve O |

Can we start taking this election serious? On this day of rememberence can we look back at the last seven years, the last five years, the last three years, the last two weeks and look for any sign that we learned anything from this day in history?

These elections are God damn fucking serious, can we stop talking about fucking lipstick and start talking about the issues?

The people that lost their lives on this day deserve it.

    steve o,
    the answer to your question is no, absolutely no. the republican’ts cannot discuss issues, will not discuss issues because all issues such as gas prices, health alleged care, global warming, infrastructure repair and maintenance, that goddamned foolish alleged war in iraq, the quagmire in afghanistan that the fool w fucked up so bad, and of course the worst economy since 1929 are the cause and fault of w and those fool republican’ts that held absolute power in this country for 6 years and accomplished absolutely nothing but the extreme fucking up of all that was once good and great in this country. come on republican’ts, open your fool mouths one time, just once on any of these issues. we have 60 days left and it’s time to remind these republican’t fools of their horrible record of failure over the last 8 years at each and every step of the way. all obama has to do is adopt this strategy and kick the republican’ts fool asses at every available oppurtunity just like like clinton did when he took down the fool w’s father, that moron h.w.. just like the title of this blog, bring it on.

    Why was Barack on Letterman last nigh talking about Lipstick then?
    Yep the right wing media keeps bringing it up and defending him keeping it in our faces.
    I’d love to hear the 2 presidential candidates talk in a Town Hall Enviroment without the teleprompters and the Greek Pillars in the background.
    I am still waiting to hear either candidate lay out a plan for any of the issues we face instead of just saying that they are issues.
    This country needs an overhaul especially our tax system.

    Mr. Bigstuff…

    I am so sorry you are a former Detroit autoworker out of a job, that couldn’t afford health care when your daughter got knocked up because she couldn’t learn sex ed in school, let alone an abortion. I am sorry she chose to get knocked up because America would not accept her lesbian relationship, so she can get entitled health and welfare benefits for herself and kid. I am sorry you have had to take a meager job at Walmart at night to afford gas because your welfare income just doesn’t support a family of five anymore. I am sorry that you don’t pay any taxes on what you do earn because you don’t make enough.

    Let me know if I got it right yet mr. bigstuff because this the nightmare you all describe as being America. This existed under Clinton’s watch too. There was still a low minimum wage, no health care and gay marriage was still a hope and a dream under Clinton’s watch too. There was still trouble in the middle east, terrorist attacks on America and corporations still had windfall profits, but they were not oil companies, they were dotcoms.

    This country is not 7 years, 9 months old. So stop acting like a 7 year old and grow up, bigstuff…

    steve,
    the issue was issues. care to try again? or is the bryan adams blaring too loud to allow cognitive thought on your part?

    steve,
    upon further review i discovered an issue you stumbled across: gay marriage. why does gay marriage bother you? does it just too strongly reinforce that temptation you obviously are trying so hard to deny?

    lisa,
    do you not understand that john p.W. songbird mcsame-hensleys 894/899 staged townhall meetings are for invitees only? the only time he fields anything other than a softball question from a right wing, fox news fed, tongue speaking, snake handling, home schooled psycho, is when mcsames lobbyists mistakenly allow a vet to speak who immediately makes mcsame sound like the fool he is.

    Wow MB you should throw that up on a teleprompter so Barack has some new material.

    I pick health care. Why can’t we have a system more like Canada or Sweden than what we have now.

    Certainly, if it’s money, perhaps we could stop shoveling billions of dollars into the Welfare State we created in Iraq and divert the money to care for all our people. That wouldn’t be so bad. And then, the insurance companies wouldn’t be so concerned about saving money and want to dictate prescriptions to the doctors, thus in turn, actually letting the doctors doctor.

    It’s hard to talk issues with republicans. They live in a fantasy world and (if you believe the lipstick issue) have a limited command of english.

    They say republicans are good for the economy while the last two republican president presided over a net decrease in jobs and economic down turns.

    They believe McSame is an agent of change while he has spent the last 26 years in Washington and voted with Bush 90% of the time.

    They believe Reagan economics work inspite of the overwhelming evidence of the last 20 some odd years.

    They believe that government can work if it has no income.

    They believe we have the best health care system in the world despite the facts that say otherwise. They ignore the fact that the rest of the world is not clamouring to leave their system and take on ours.

    They believe that republicans are better at securing our country despite the fact that the worst terrorist attack happened on their watch.

    In spite of the fact that they have controlled the presidency( 20 of the last 28 years) and/or one or both houses for the last 28 years all the problems are the democrats. ( A classic case of denial)

    They believe that the republicans are the party of small governement despite that fact that Reagan & Bush have grown the government more than anybody since Roosevelt.

    They believe that they are the party of fisical responsibility despite the fact the Reagan and Bush ran up record deficits.

    Is it any wonder that the McSame people say this election is about personality? What can they possibly say about issues that would be believable.

    Absolutely. I don’t know whether we WILL or not. That will depend upon the candidates and their campaigns. Until now there’s been precious little of any specificity. I’ve been hoping for a long time for the discussion to turn to platforms and plan specifics.

    Like Mr. Bigstuff, I don’t expect much of that to happen. I really don’t think most people vote for candidates based upon the specifics of their plans. Most don’t pay enough attention to understand the differences between candidate A’s energy plan, economic plan, foreign policy positions etc., and those of candidate B and, consequently, the candidates don’t spend much time on those. What they spend most time on is fuzzy story-telling that convey that they care about this or that and why the other candidate is a schmuck. The one with the best story, not the most detailed plan, generally wins the race.

    Huh. I hadn’t read Thomas L. Friedman’s NYTimes Op-Ed Column before making the above comment but he echoes what I’m saying in my previous comment — or rather, I echo what he said:

    If you as a politician connect with voters on a gut level, they will follow you anywhere and not fret about the details. If you don’t connect with them on a gut level, you can’t show them enough details.

    Sarah Palin connects with Americans on a gut level. Obama had better get back to doing that, somehow, or liberals will be threatening to leave America…again.

    Maybe, instead of talking about lipstick, we could talk about how being a state governors is better experience for President of the United States than being a US Senator. This from Democratic governor and Obama supporter, Governor Rod Blagojovich.

    “There is a growing sense of doom among Democrats I have spoken to . . . People are going crazy, telling the campaign ‘you’ve got to do something’.”

    Heh!

    Democratic Congresspersons distancing themselves from Obama. Priceless! THAT’S entertainment!
