Up for Debate: Obama wraps DNC

Friday, September 7, 2012 at 12:50am

What's your reaction to President Barack Obama's nomination acceptance speech at the DNC? How did it compare to Mitt Romney's speech last week? How did it compare to President Bill Clinton's speech Wednesday?

I guess I think differently that you, gdiafante. When I'm on a job, I try to do the best job I can, as quick as I can and I don't like to go running around until I get done.

I guess that's the old fashion work method you young folks aren't familiar with.

What I really like about our communist muslim president is how he cleverly changed his middle name to "Hussein," knowing how popular that would be with U.S. voters. I bet even Yogi admires that brilliant move...

By: yogiman on 9/7/12 at 12:36

dargent7,

You accuse Romney of being a liar? Hell fire, have you ever known Barry to tell the truth? The only truth I believe he might be able to tell is when he tells his children he loves them.

Just about anything beyond that is a lie.

By: gdiafante on 9/7/12 at 12:38

I have no doubt you think differently, yogi. But didn't you say you were a weatherman? Do you think the stress level, knowlege and job description is on par with President of the United States? If so, then you can compare your work habits to his.

There's a reason why Presidents show signs of premature aging, nitwit.

It was genius I says, pure genius!!!

bfra,

I'm sure you've compared the times spent out of office by Obama and Bush. Who spent the most time out of office running for re-election (at our expense, of course), playing golf, and working on his ranch?

Could it be that all these years he's been in blackface!! On my God!!

yogi I'm about 20 mins away. Will you be there are will you not show again.

By: yogiman on 9/7/12 at 12:56

Re-read the pay back comment, gdiafante. No, you don't pay back a scholarship but the payback mention was of their loans. Did he have a loan as was noted, when it will be shown he had scholarships galore when he's exposed?

By: Captain Nemo on 9/7/12 at 1:03

yogi I'm where are you hiding?

By: yogiman on 9/7/12 at 1:05

brrrrk, you and Urrr have the ignorance to call me a racist when you don't know me. But the only reason you can give in voting for Barry Soetoro aka Barack Obama, or backing him all the way is because of his race and you are showing how you favor it.

I'll repeat what I've posted before: Anyone on this site that voted for a man and didn't even know his legal name could only have voted for him because of racism.

And may I say: It only takes a damn fool to vote for someone they don't even know. So may I ask; how well do you know Barry?

By: gdiafante on 9/7/12 at 1:11

So now, because Obama is like almost everyone else in the country who goes to college and has to pay off a student loan, you ascribe some conspiracy to that.

Cite a legitimate source that disputes any of the loans Obama paid back.

And regarding race...you really are a dumb ****...Obama was elected not because of his color but because HE WAS NOT GEORGE W BUSH.

Jeez...

By: Captain Nemo on 9/7/12 at 1:13

I see that yogi is not paying attention to me. I'm I hurt? No not at all. He was brave yesterday as I was headed east, but now that I am here, his eye sight fails him.

By: Captain Nemo on 9/7/12 at 1:15

Alright yogi I'm sure your nerves will return I leaving now.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 9/7/12 at 1:26

Nemo, quick scaring the old fool! He's probably got his shotgun and is hiding behind one of his farm animals as we type.

You missed one, gdaifante. I left out "to" when I posted "do you really enjoy them spend your money..."

The word "to" should have been between them and spend. Poor editing, gdiafante.

brrrrk - Your 2:51 referrences, causes yogi to get deaf, dumb, blind & more ignorant. He is immune to Facts & Truths.

By: yogiman on 9/7/12 at 2:06

Just an ignorant question, gdiafante.

Barry keeps saying George had put us deep in debt by the time he left office and he hasn't been able to get us out yet. How much are we in debt now? Who was spending the money that has put us twice deeper in debt than Bush had when he left office?

If Barry keeps putting us deeper in debt the way he is now through his spending, just think, George Bush will have us in debt deeper than Barry can count.

But being fair, the president can only spend the money congress is willing to let him spend, like child and parents. So, as we have went as deep into debt as we have since Barry usurped the office, it's still Congress' fault. He can only spend with their permission. You know, like you telling your children how they can spend your money... presuming you earn a living.

By: bfra on 9/7/12 at 2:09

yogi - Bet gdiafante earns more money than your SS check.

By: yogiman on 9/7/12 at 2:11

Is he scaring me quick, Blanteknazi2. Or was you asking him the quit scaring me?

By: bfra on 9/7/12 at 2:14

yogi - Your problem with correcting anybody, you can't type without making mistakes. while doing it.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 9/7/12 at 2:15

Sorry, yogi. I was laughing hard when I posted that - I can just picture you hiding behind one of your "less favorite" sheep cradling your shotgun for fear that yogi might find you. LOL

By: Blanketnazi2 on 9/7/12 at 2:16

Actually, he probably was quick about scaring you as well - LOL.

Well, that was yogi in his younger days, anyway.

By: yogiman on 9/7/12 at 2:24

I didn't know Obama took Christmas vacations, brrrrk. Does he? If he does, then why doesn't he spend the time to go to Bedford VA to honor the veterans that died for us to save this nation?

Has he changed his way of putting his hand over his heart instead of his hands clasped over his crotch?

I have noticed he usually has the flag pen on his coat. It's amazing how patriotic he's gotten, isn't it?

Why do you think he makes so many typing and grammar mistakes..... you can only do so much with one free hand.... baaa, baaa, baaa,.....

By: yogiman on 9/7/12 at 2:28

No bet, bfra. I only worked long enough to pick up a few SS bucks after I retired. I had too damn much paid in when I went to work for the Guvmunt to just give it to my uncle; Sam that is.

By: yogiman on 9/7/12 at 2:31

I understand Blanketnazi2, you made that error on purpose to see if I'd find it... didn't you?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 9/7/12 at 2:39

Sorry, yogi - I don't mean to hurt your feelings but I don't give you that much thought.

By: yogiman on 9/7/12 at 2:40

If you're going to find fault in my writing bfra, you should learn how to write before you criticize anyone. Please read your 3:14 mistakes in sentence writing. You have my permission then to criticize me.

And by the way, whom have you known me to criticize if I wasn't just throwing a rock back at a stone thrower?

By: bfra on 9/7/12 at 2:45

Yogi - Ever since you started muddling up this site, you have "claimed" to have worked in just about every job & occupation anyone ever mentioned:-). Now you say you only earned a few bucks. Guess those many employers got the message of your incapabality, in a hurry. Jobs didn't last long. EH?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 9/7/12 at 2:47

bfra, I think yogi and syd are neck to neck on that one.

By: yogiman on 9/7/12 at 2:48

gdiafante,

You state Obama was elected only because he was not George Bush. Did you forget, Bush was out of Office after two terms. No one could have voted for him. So tell me, why has so many people commented they voted for Obama because he was the first black president of the US?

None of them could claim they was voting for him because of his experience. Did you? None of them voted for him because of who he was because they simply didn't know, and still don't know. Did you? Do you?

By: yogiman on 9/7/12 at 2:54

brrrrk,

I'll have to admit; maybe Bush did spend more time off to go to his ranch. But he has in office eight years. How many years has Barry been in office? He may be able to beat Bush if he can usurp the office again.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 9/7/12 at 2:56

I'm sure no one in Hillbillyville out there in White County had heard of him before. Many of us, like myself, knew of him when he served in the Senate and thought he would be a good presidential candidate. He hit my radar screen back in 2006 - I was one of the people who emailed him asking for him to run for president. I liked his Senate record and knew about the community work he did in Chicago. Yes, I've known who he is for many years.

By: bfra on 9/7/12 at 2:58

Blanket - You are right, again. With all the jobs yogi "claims" to have had, he should be drawing the max SS. But then his made up claims are not acceptable, when it come to the government.

By: yogiman on 9/7/12 at 3:03

bfra,

You make a comment; "yogi - your problem with correcting anybody, you can't type without making mistakes, while doing it".

Would you like to edit that sentence and send it to me again? You know, like where you use a comma and start a new sentence with a small letter?

But that's okay, I understand. We all make errors, except a few.

Fox News Debunks Years Of Its Own Commentary By Accurately Reporting That Health Care Reform Reduces Deficit

By: yogiman on 9/7/12 at 3:11

If you don't give me that much thought Blanketnazi2, why are you looking so hard for an error when I post on this site?

It's obvious we all make errors, but I'm the only one I see being criticized on mine. It's fun, ain't it?

By: dargent7 on 9/7/12 at 3:12

Romney isn't a liar. He plays by the rules, the rich man's rules.
He has 3 overseas bank accounts and doesn't apologize for them.
Only releases 2 years of tax returns, saying, f*** you".
He has 5 homes and doesn't apologize for them.
He's building a 4 car elevator in La Jolla, CA now with the anticipated win in November.
Nobody in La Jolla needs a freekin' elevator to take your car(s) from sea level to street level.
He doesn't care how rich he is, how it appears, the perception. He and Lovey will look straight into the camera and say, "So, what?"
For that reason alone, I don't want that douche-bag(s) as my President and First Lady.
I'll take a half white, half black community organizer who was orphaned, self-made, and became President on his own merits, charisma and superb intellect. Has a million dollar smile. Can hold his own with the likes of Bill Clinton.
Taught at Harvard. I couldn't wash dishes at Harvard. Has me sold.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 9/7/12 at 3:13

yogi, you've made about a dozen errors today and I haven't had the time or desire to point them out but if you need me to, I guess I can. You make so many it really gets tiring. BTW, why don't you check out what I just posted about how Health Care Reform will reduce the deficit.

When asked why he didn't mention the troops in Afghanistan in his acceptance speech, Romney said: When you give a speech you don't go through a laundry list, you talk about the things you think are important.

yogi, you can come out from behind that sheep now. Well, if you want to.....maybe you're busy......
