I think Dewey will decline - he doesn't want Michelle telling him what he's allowed to eat.

Don't you remember? Dewey's an Obama insider. He doesn't need that to get into the White House. He has an open invite to the Lincoln bedroom!  Remember Dewey, no eating the desert in the bed!!

I think that Bachmann and Perry are really, really scary !!!!!   Bachmann is beginning to sound like a tent evangelist.  I'm very old, so the next two generations will decide what form our nation will take.  Aside from paying off the debt from the Bush Jr. credit card and war economy and the addition of the Obama administration's attempts to correct a diving micro economy, I don't see a philosophical reality in the nation for future generations beyond some general statements about the founding fathers that might not pragmatically suit our problems, especially financial, today.  All I know is that any form of theocracy is not the answer.  As a matter of fact, I see it as just another problem.  Yikes !!!!   

PS - As an aside, why do you folks who disagree with Dewey's politics feel it necessary to gang up on him with some posts that border on childish?  By all means disagree with his politics if you feel that is necessary, but leave the good human being alone as you disagree with his thoughts and attitudes.

Joisey, Obama never attempted to correct the diving economy, but rather attempted (and succeeded) to take advantage of the crisis as an opportunity to implement laws that would never pass under normal circumstances. In addition he saw an opportunity to con the public into funding all of his union friends through a bogus "stimulus" bill.
Follow the money and see how many of the green jobs companies who received hundreds of millions of our tax dollars turned around and donated huge amounts back to Obama. Same thing for the unions. He gives them billions of our tax dollars to fund their pensions and excessive wages and they turn around and give it back to him in campaign donations.
We have been scammed by Obama and you are still taking your jabs at Bush for the economy.
Just once I would like to hear you admit that this economy crashed because of the Community Reinvestment Act which killed the banking and housing market. Just once admit that Barney Frank, who's gay lover was working for Fannie (no pun intended), and the rest of the democrats refused to let Fannie and Freddie be investigated because it was their cash cow.
Of course admitting the truth and discrediting your own political spin on things is probably asking way too much.

While I am ranting recently about the likes of Jack Dandy whose emotional childish vitriol is unforgivable and forgettable, how about a Republican ticket of Mitt Romney and Chris Christie, even though it defies the "need" for more geographic spread?  Sounds like a good ticket to oppose Obama to me.   Frank 
PS - Dewey, I'm still on the edge and haven't decided which way to fall, and either way I do regard it as falling.  I believe in aspects of both Parties' platforms, but not all of either.  That leaves me with a choice of "almost" no matter which candidate I ultimately support.

Community Reinvestment Act had nothing to do with subprime crisis

JD - Your take on the Obama administration's attempts at economic accord are understandable from your far right perspective which burns with hatred of Obama and his administration.  It is so bent that despite that it has some merit, that most will ignore it as just another far right rant instead of considering the subject matter.  The "fannie" comment demonstrates just how far in the right wing hole your thoughts are.  In my opinion, there are right wing people who post here intellectually who have so much more to say than your emotional rants and jibes, and those right wing people have something valuable to say.  Relax and watch a softball game.    Frank

Joisey I guess I was right, it is asking way too much. Your response is exactly what I expected from an ideologue who claims to be neutral in an attempt to gain credibility. Reminds me of Obama after he raises the country's debt by 4 trillion dollars then steps in and says we need to be fiscally responsible just so he can appear to be fiscally responsible.
Dewdy, you're right, forcing banks to make loans to unqualified buyers had no effect on the housing crash. Wow! All I can say is wow!

Anyone ever notice that when Joisey doesn't have the ability to counter a point which discredits his liberal spin, he attacks the manner in which the point is made? And he has the nerve to call ME childish?
Joisey, saying that I am full of hatred, vitriol, and what ever else you come up with is only an attempt to distract from the fact that you are without a legitimate response to the points that I have made. Your hatred of Bush won't allow you to admit any wrong doing by Obama without taking a jab at Bush in the process.
Furthermore Frank, your responses to me are full of more hatred and vitriol than anything I have ever posted.

faster Dandy - I have nothing to say about those at present.  I feel no obligation to defend the Obama administration.  That's Dewey's decision to do so.  Would I be surprised if Pelosi's kin benefitted from a government move - heck no !!  Isn't that an example of "The Washington Way" with both Parties?  However, thank you for the subject matter challenge instead of a personal attack.   Frank

Jack Dandy - I tried "nice" with you, but you obviously don't know what to do with that approach short of sarcasm, so I thought I'd try nasty tit for tat and see if that made a dent.  Thus, the current approach.  By the way, I don't hate you. I don't even know you.   I just disrespect your anonymous you and certainly don't like your anonymous you or your approach on this thread.  I find it ironic that you and I will probably vote for the same person to lead the next administration.  In a humorous vein, we will probably never meet in reality.  Our dislikes appear to be more personal than political.  Lots of different people on the planet.  We like some that we meet and dislike others, and others mean too little to even care about.     Frank 
PS - Since our not liking each other gets in the way of our communication, how about if we call a truce and not "talk" to each other again?  I think that we would both be better off.

Jg  - I love how you and Dewey can say things about personal character etc... but other people are chastised for it.  And no Dewey I cant link the appropriate threads I am computer illiterate. I guess we just guess at these things and dont read like you do.

This thread was a joke. It poked fun at Dewey. His name is in the topic.
The follow up humor was funny.
Then someone threw a turd in the punch bowl.
Look at the thread subject......there are no points to be made.
A time and place for everything---Arguing in a joke thread is like having sex and stopping right before orgasm to argue with the other person that of marge simpson's twin sisters selma is prettier than Patty.

I once did a major Master's Degree paper on "The Arab-Israeli Conflict" in about 1957.  I requested information from both groups.  In conclusion, I said that I didn't know whether to believe the Arabs' lies or the Israelis' lies.  I get the same feeling from this Miscellaneous Thread.  YUK !!!!   There is nothing that evades truth and reality more than emotionally embedded far right or far left perspective and rhetoric.  Rant on you people who are so damned positive that you are absolutely right !!!!!    Frank

PS - By the way, both the Arabs and the Israelis were positive that they were absolutely right, and they are still maintaining that position to the detriment of the Middle East and perhaps the entire world.  Stupid absolutists.

JG - I don't think discussion over issues is the primary objective around here.  Occasionally, but not often.  As I tried to explain before, many of these folks post for one purpose only and that is to put this President in a bad light for the purpose of persuading folks not to vote for him again.  I, in turn, choose to counter their posts and make a case for why a Democrat is a far better choice to lead this Country.  And so it goes, day in and day out.  As far as I'm concerned, it's mostly a debate.  I don't think you like that approach but, if it's simple discussion you want, I think we're in the wrong place.

Anyway, back to your "on the fence" post regarding the election.  I go back to my original thought.  If you think privatizing SS and Medicare is unacceptable, I don't know how you fall to the Right.  If you fear a Republican President may revisit waterboarding, how do you fall to the Right.  If you think the wealth gap worsens under Republican leadership, how can you reconcile a vote for "R"?  I don't know what your persoanl priorities are but whatever they be, I'll never fully understand how they allow you to fall in either direction from year to year.  I know there are many like you but I still can't understand how you all manage to remain independent.  Once I settled on issues in my life that meant the most to me, the decision of Left or Right was pretty much made for me.


PS:  We're allowed two guests at the Obama dinner so, while you're still on this fence, maybe you and the wife can join us and we'll finally meet in person.  Just remember to stay away from the punch.

Dewey, I know you are speaking to JG, but I fell to the far right of Attila on this one. I truly think SS should be privatized for younger taxpayers, and taken away from Socialist looking for a voting block. Further, water boarding would be a mild thing compared to what I would consider doing when terrorist were threatening my family , town or country and I needed info. Hey perhaps you should talk to the folks that film the be headings of Americans and any other person that do not follow their beliefs.




Nice guys our Muslim friends, WARNING EXTREME VIOLENCE:

You are dealing with evil Dewey. Why do you defend them and bash the US intelligence agencies for getting info however they can. Your family means nothing to these animals, and they would kill you and your loved ones while praising God. I cannot imagine why, or even fathom how you would defend these barbaric and hateful animals. I am close to losing my sense of self restraint, so I leave it to you to defend the indefensible in your unique Liberal Socialist way.
