OK, maybe the Presidential debate drinking game wasn’t such a great idea. Or maybe drinking whenever someone said “middle class” was a bad idea.
Not to worry, this morning we have a whole new kettle of fish to shoot in a barrel. Or rather, binders of women. What does that mean?
Maybe not that.
Not like that Bubba. Jeez. Now Hillary is going to want to…
This morning’s stop over at Politifact.com, they rated most of the debate was at least half or mostly true which is a big improvement. Romney should not have gone after the Libya thing so hard, he was wrong. The thing is, to any thinking person, the President can’t come roaring out and rattling swords and be wrong. They called it terrorism right away but didn’t point to exactly where it came from. Then Hillary took responsibility for the lapse, whatever that really was, I don’t think there was one. I think shit happens in hostile environments. Those guys were stationed in the belly of the beast. Shit happened and one of our Ambassadors and some of his staff were killed. It’s an international incident for sure but what would Mittens really do that would be any different? It’s not like he didn’t piss off England and France in one innocent little trip. Just think the wonders he could work with Libya with that sort of negotiating skill. And they got the transcript. And Obama called it an act of terror the next morning. Do you think he’s not doing something right now about this? Ask Osama bin Laden. Oh, never mind, he sleeps with the fish.
And Hillary. I don’t think she needed to step up to the plate on that one, but she did. Was she the sacrificial lamb for the Administration? Doubtful, she’s too smart for that. It was probably a miss. But she stepped right up to the plate just like Condi did after 9/11. Oh wait a minute! OK, Obama took responsibility because they all work for him just like Bush did after 9/11. Oh wait a minute! To this day neither Bush nor Rice have taken responsibility for their lapses. Obama’s team didn’t beef up security. Bush’s team ignored a report that said “OBL determined to attack America”. Yeah, STFU Mittens.
The only “pants on fire” was the apology tour comment. Sorry, I think apologizing for this country being a bunch of barbarians is wise. We have bullied our way through this world for over a hundred years. We should apologize. I’m sure the Teabilly Republic doesn’t get that, but if we were better world citizens they wouldn’t be burning effigies of our Presidents, like that have for years. I can remember that back to Johnson. Maybe there’s a reason? Ya think? Mending fences is not a bad idea Mittens. Of course he’s a guy who just has his butler call a landscaper to fix his fence… if they didn’t self deport.
Obama’s only outright falsehood was when he said that Romney called the Arizona immigration law a “model for the nation”. It was out of context. The Romney quote was “You know, I think you see a model here in Arizona. They passed a law here that says that people who come here and try and find work, that the employer is required to look them up on E-Verify. This E-Verify system allows employers in Arizona to know who’s here legally and who’s not here legally. And as a result of E-Verify being put in place, the number of people in Arizona that are here illegally has dropped by some 14 percent, where the national average has only gone down 7 percent.” Obama’s factcheckers took the day off after the first sentence. Fail.
Romney’s thinking is why my old job is being done by some guy named Singh in Bangalore. I’m sure they are now paying him more than $16 a day. I know when Fidelity went in there and started stealing First India’s employees the labor rates went up, and it’s been a few years so even Singh probably got a raise. He’s why we now have QC checking the prelims when they arrive back here. Even if he wasn’t an erratic self absorbed out of touch lying douchebag, I could never support him.
