Is this a hit list?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
It sure looks like one: Check it out

Quote:
The Constitution provides that if a senator is unable to complete his or her term then the governor of the state will appoint a replacement Senator. Below is a list of Senate Democrats from States with Republican Governors. Currently the Democrats hold a 58 seat majority in the Senate. If these Senators were unable to complete their terms and were replaced by qualified Republicans by their Republican governors, the Republican Party would regain a commanding majority in the Senate sufficient to prevent Barack Hussein Obama from socializing medicine, nationalizing the financial and auto industries, and creating a socialist wealth redistribution scheme.

I have no idea what this means.

Neither does he.
It's just an object. It doesn't mean what you think.

This from the same folks who declared the country wouldn't elect a man if you knew his middle name.

Don't know what that means either.

What folks would that be? You mean the webmasters of the site? Yeah, they are loons. And I know they don't represent values people like you and SDW and Scott and NOFEER have... but... you have to admit, they are a big part of what your party, what your "conservative" faction, has become. And they are a big part of the reason your party, and Republican Conservatives in general, suffered such a huge defeat.

If you don't admit that, then I really can't help.

He's talking about people who objected to conservative commentators making a fuss about Barack Obama's middle name in an attempt to persuade badly-informed people that he was a Muslim, or not properly American, so that their guy, a Republican, would win. He thinks that this was fine, but he doesn't really have the balls to come out and say it.

Oh, right. Wait. How does that relate to the "hit list", again? Objecting to conservative commentators making a fuss about Barack Obama's middle name makes objecting to hit lists appears foolish? What?

Are we going to have to break out the t-shirts? Surely no one wants that.

Hahahahahaha.......you crack me you. Our conservative "faction" is the same size it was in 1992. 1994 could be just right around the corner. Your scaremongering might work on someone out there, but that isn't me. You and the other supposed "cool kids" can go hang out in the smoking room with President Obama.

I think me and my balls addressed it several times. Perhaps you and the wonderous search function could go find them rather than casting personal and conspiratorial asperations into the air.

Oh and by the way, that makes you completely wrong.

Ah, no, you see, you're mischaracterising what you just wrote in order to win an argument.

you’re being very dishonest, because no-one ever said that.

When people objected to the efforts of Ann Coulter et al to introduce the notion that Obama was a scary Muslim by using his middle name as much as they could, they objected because it was an ugly attempt to manipulate the poorly-informed by appealing to their mistrust.

You see?

But really, you should just get over it and get behind your president now.

youre being very dishonest, because no-one ever said that. You very would like for that to have been said because it would make it easier for you to defend the behaviour of people whose politics agree with yours, which is what you're trying to do.

Aha! So Trumpt was referencing the double reverse position of simultaneously pretending like saying "Hussein" over and over again was benign while maintaining that believing it to be pernicious badly underestimated the discernment of the American people, which, of course, might lead one to wonder exactly why certain persons on the right would then bother to be so diligent about using the guys' middle name, but never mind.

The important thing is thinking that using Hussein over and over again was a shitty bit of racial politics even though it totally wasn't because the American people are immune to such blandishments means that looking askance at Republican senatorial hit lists is, uh, foolish? Hypocritical? Crazy? Hilarious? Yellow?

By golly, I'm still missing something.

Ah, I see. I'm no longer an expert in what I write. You are the expert in what I write and I don't really know what my own words mean, rather you do.

That is just great reasoning there.

Finally, plenty of people said it.

Use that little search function and you will see that I said clearly anyone stupid enough to vote against someone just for having the middle name "Hussein" wasn't going to vote for someone with the first name "Barack" and last name "Obama" in the first place. People are not selectively racist, and ignorant. The guy wasn't named John "Huseein" Smith. His first and last name would have been no different to someone so ignorant. It was just another ploy to label anyone who wouldn't vote for him as racist.

Finally in the most asinine bit of reasoning, they claimed no one brings up the middle names of presidents or presidential candidates when we just spent the last eight years referring to our president by a letter in his middle name, "W." Unless of course I am just imagining Oliver Stone and his last movie as well.

Exception doesn't prove the rule. People can say or portray anything for a camera and put it on YouTube. Finally, this woman wasn't going to vote for Obama until she learned his middle name. She wasn't ever going to vote for him.

That's nice. That would be a great subject for a really interesting debate.

But what I'm saying above, and I'll repeat it here so you might actually address it, is that when Ann Coulter at al were using Obama's middle name as often as they could, they were engaged in an ugly attempt to manipulate the poorly-informed by appealing to and stoking their mistrust.

Right?

And when people objected to this they weren't saying

, as you suggested, they were objecting to these attempts to insinuate the idea that Obama was a scary Muslim.

If there is one position I would not a Republican to be in, it is "behind" anyone.

Actually it was democrats pulling for Hillary that kept the "Hussein" in the news.


How soon they forget and/or ignore and/or submit to self induce ignorance

But this isn't true. It's kind of irritating. Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh weren't Hilary supporters.
