    I like LGM but the posters never seem to want to discuss the big issues.

    And the big issue that voters have identified over and over in poll after poll and that is the economy and JOBS. What’s with that?

    Be relevant

    • John

      You’re really going to have to try harder than that.

      • Yeah, that was a pathetic attempt to sound like someone different.

        • It suggests that this troll really is clueless enough to believe that it’s fooling anyone with its many usernames–it also suggests a certain level of mental illness; anyone who can pivot so abruptly from snarling about their desire to murder all Marxists to this sort of faux-reasonableness clearly has issues.

      Reardon Steel was a more manly name, Jennie dear.

      • mark f

        Yeah but when he switches to White Steel tomorrow it’s gonna be more manly than Max Powers was.

        • Holden Pattern

          Maybe he should mix them up, and become White Power!

          • Malaclypse

            Darleen would be proud of him then!

    • Brandon

      It’s hard to talk about what the voters want when the issue is disenfranchisement of certain segments of them.

      • Bill Murray

        well to be fair jennie dearest does represent that portion of the electorate that is pro-disenfranchisement.

    • Furious Jorge

      Ask Mitch McConnell. He’s the one blocking everything that might conceivably help the economy, and thus help Obama.

      What’s with that? Asshole.

    • Ben F

      Classic concern trolling. I couldn’t have concern trolled better about anything even if I tried.

    • Manta

      Actually, if the republicans stuck to the economy, they would both have better chances of winning, and improve public discourse.

      But it seems they prefer to stick it to poor, minorities, and women than getting elected…

      • firefall

        They try to stick to things they know something about .. sticking it to the poor, etc

        I don’t know; they’ve tried the economy line and it hasn’t been nearly as effective as in previous election. My guess is that US voters aren’t complete morons, and that, contra the True Believers gathered in Tampa this week, they have neither trouble remembering the 8 years proceeding Obama nor any illusions about Republican legislative behavior over the last 4, and that as a result they tend to view R attacks along the Economy line as being obvious, insulting falsehoods.

        The second point in particular is an important one. When Gingrich tried to pull this crap with Clinton it failed because US citizens aren’t as stupid the Republican party thinks they are, and it was clear to anyone with eyes that it was the Rs sinking the economy and making life difficult by forcing a government shut-down. One of the few sure-fire ways to piss off even Republican voters is to show them you think they’re stupid, something the Cons know better than anyone given how central resentment is to their message.

          You have far more faith in Citizens then I do. I hope you’re right.

      We are more than happy to talk about how the Republicans in congress have consistently blocked all efforts to create more jobs, instead insisting on job killing tax cuts for the rich.

        That’s right.

        We can tax our way to prosperity.

        • Bill Murray

          glad we agree

          • Anonymous

            Probably a better college would have helped you. Study eco 201 and 202 and get back to us.

            Better still, talk to the Congressional Budget Office

          Worked under Clinton.

            And Eisenhower, just to be bipartisan and all.

            • Heron

              And FDR. And Lincoln, btw; do people really think all those healthy, wealthy train, telegraph, arms-manufacturing, and steel companies that dominated the post-civil war economy just poofed out of thin air? Do people think post-civil war politics was so corrupt because concerted bribery of government officials had simply never occurred to the US business community before they spent 4 years suckling at the teat on the world’s first Military Industrial Complex?

          “This empty wingtard slogan approved by Newt Gingrich.”

  • JoyfulA

    I wish Pennsylvania had as part of its new voter suppression law that part about signing a statement that you had impediments to acquire ID.

  • It certainly does make it easier to demonstrate the intent to discriminate when the author of the bill expresses his intent to discriminate, and agrees with someone who lauds the bill for its effectiveness at discrimination.

    • Hogan

      It’s like they don’t think they need to talk in code any more. Dog whistles for airhorns.

    In the words of the immortal Gomer Pyle, USMC – “Well, spooprise, sooooprise, soooooooooprise!”

    This guy’s obviously a disciple of Hans von Spakovsky.

  • Republicans can’t win elections among voters who are representative of the American public.

    It’s just that simple. On a level playing field, they don’t have a prayer.

  • Sharon

    Ah, along with classic voter suppression, they’ve gone all Blazing Saddles all the time as an ad strategy.

    As a side note, when will politicians realize that emails are forever, and are not private? That was on my mind when writing every email at work. Say something about your boss, and she may read it someday.

    • Malaclypse

      I forget what job I had where I was instructed never to send any e-mail that I would not feel comfortable explaining to either my mother, or a judge. But that’s not a bad guideline.
