    If debates are nothing more than stand-up comedy, Mitt is definitely going to win.
    He’s much more comical.

    I’ll believe it’s a debate when they impose formal debate rules on the participants.

    Jase 99: I agree. In fact, I had a Change.org petition out to that effect, adding that they should include any candidate on the ballot in at least 20 states. They never sent it out, and if you specifically looked for petitions regarding the debates, it was not in the main list, but off to the side on its own. It has been cancelled due to lack of interest! Part of both permitted parties’ war on women, I suppose.
    .
    Remember, you don’t get to vote for president – only a few hundred elites have that right. It won’t mean a thing if your state doesn’t swing, so all other votes are “wasted”. You might as well vote Green and help build a party that believes we all should get to vote for president.

    I’m truly impressed. I never realized there were that many false statements about Obama. Just goes to show what you miss when you don’t iisten to Fox’s right wing propaganda.

    For God’s sake, Bruce, what has happened to you? That list is the biggest piece of complete bullshit I’ve seen in years. Donald Trump would hesitate before sending that around. Where it isn’t outright wrong, it is deceptive and sleazy.
    Go to snopes.com and check it out. I can’t be bothered to take this apart.

    I pay a lot of attention to current events and especialy politics, but I have not heard of many of your points and cannot comment on things that I really do not know about. HOWEVER: The first rule about being a good liar is not to tell lies that people know are lies. So many of your statements are obviously absolutey false, that I do not believe any of the ones that may have been in doubt. Been listening to Rush and “False news” or congenitally brain damaged? It’s difficult to differentiate.

    Well, there are a few things in that tlist that are misleading. Such as the thing about his being the first president to apply for college as a foreign aid student but then we will never know because this one IS true " First President to hide his medical, educational and travel records."

    Of the 35 statements in my cut and paste stick that I just poked you with to get your attention, So all your guys that say they are just “obvious” lies need to take a better look. Check them out. See which ones you can prove to be a lie.

    Now for your reading enjoyment take a look at this article. It gives some more “firsts” for our President and list sources.

    And Motive go ahead and just do say 5 of them. I would be interested in your opinion, though you and the rest of the Obama supporters seem to take umbrage at anything that may detract from your golden boys reputation.

    You realized that you’ve admitted posting what you knew was a load of manure? Why would anyone waste their time looking at more delusional nonsense?

    Is it just me, or are there no conservatives here who can articulate an idea in their own words, then back it up with actual facts?

  14. motivemagus

    motivemagus said, almost 4 years ago

    @Bruce4671

    No. You have insulted me by posting things “to get [my] attention” that you knew were wrong; then insulted me again by not only asking for me to do five of them but hedging it by claiming I take “umbrage” at “anything that may detract from your golden boys reputation.” Wrong again. I never claimed Obama was a “golden boy;” I’ve criticized him ON THIS LIST repeatedly; you’re just setting up a straw man to disagree with me in advance. So: no. Do your own damn homework instead of trolling.

    He must have seen the Jon Stewart episode about Bull Sh!t Mountain, and like Moses, went to the top. He came back down with this load of crap. Two tablets ? Yeah, he put those between his knees.
