Exactly! And there seem to be a few certain people who keep doing it! (Not going to name names)
Yes, I have noticed that too.
I noticed it myself but I wasnt gonna say anything unless someone else brought it up. XP
Practically every single commercial on television today are desperately desperate anti-Obama ads: "People, whatever you do, do NOT vote for Barack Obama!", "I voted for Obama last election, but THIS election, I'm voting for MITT ROMNEY!", "Mr. President, you didn't do anything to help my family, or end the debt that my children alone will have to pay out of their pockets, therefore, I cannot vote for you again!"
I know the election is tomorrow and all, but I'm sick of all the hate Obama's been getting... Bush was one of the worst (if not THE worst) presidents we EVER had (and the one responsible for the economic crisis in the first place), yet he never got nearly as much hate as Obama has been getting... oh yeah, because he was a Republican. And a Texan. And white.
Well no offense and maybe I'm misunderstanding your post but you act like it's not okay for anyone to make anti-Obama ads simply because your voting for him. Some people on this forum act like if people don't vote for Obama then their the stupidest human beings on the face of the earth and vice versa when we should respecting each other no matter WHO were voting for tomorrow.
No, I'm complaining about that's all that's on TV today is nothing but hate ads, and I'm also complaining in general about how no other president has gotten nearly as much hate as Obama has when there have been plenty of presidents worse than him, i.e. George W. Bush.
Ahh well then that's a different story. But welcome to politics. There's been hate ads on TV for months. Of course your seeing them even more now because tomorrow is basically D-day. I honestly though don't have an opinion on Obama. But I don't think he needs to worry about calling a moving van. I think he's easily gonna take the election tomorrow.
Wanna know who's behind those ads?
Yeah. HE'S still in the picture. The architect of the downfall of America. And NO ONE is saying that he is still in the picture.
Seriously... Obama does have some legitimate problems, but there is NO way he deserves all the hate he's getting. When Boarders was going bankrupt, there were shelves and shelves of anti-Obama right wing conspiracy theory books. The only left wing book on the shelf was about Glen Beck being a liar and an immoral jerkwad when he was a shock jock. And it's all the same tune. Socialism, Birthtards, tin foil hat kooky crap that oozes from the deep woods militant wackos to the sane ones. I will say this, part of it is racism. But only part. It's mainly the big amoral corporate interests that don't want someone in office that doesn't give them corporate welfare. And like I said, that doesn't create the jobs that are lost. They do create one type of job... but I can't add the word that goes before it. It's a family site.
The worst part is, the masses don't know that it's all a trick, and they're all pawns. The Tea Party? Yeah... they want to get rid of regulations and give rich people more money. That's for them?! Listen, unless you sell lead paint smoothies, regulation is NOT going to kill small business. The big companies that movie in right next door do. And the party is all funded by Fox News and the Koch brothers. Even the saner ones that don't carry Obama=Hitler because that's the only guy we know signs. I bet they even paid Frank Lultz (the go to guy for the Republican party to name things sinister with cute names and name beneficial stuff with sinister names) to give it a Patriotic sounding name instead of calling it the "MINE MINE MINE! GIMME GIMME GIMME Party." And those people are responsible for electing jerkwad Congressmen that cause the very partisan gridlock that's really destroying the country. How many times were we about to go over the fiscal cliff, and the "geniuses" said we need to shut down government? A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.
At this point, I want Obama to win as a punishment for those guys. If kids act up that way if they don't get what they want, they get punished. So they're behavior is WORSE than a little kid's, AND they get what they want. That's not fair at all. Especially since everyone on the left of them (which is like moderate Republican now) rarely gets what they want, they get only a little of it, and they're grateful for it.
I dunno... that's like saying "Oh, that big painful colonoscopy I have scheduled is tomorrow." The annoyance of waiting and it finally being over seems like a relief... but then you still risk the chance of having a big fat tumor in there that you still have to deal with. Not having to dread something anymore is cold comfort when the reasons to dread are realized.
But yeah... I'll be happy when I don't have to hear actresses paid by Rove to slander the president, but I won't be quite as happy if I have to learn French and raise a crapload of money to move to another country in under a year.
I'll be happy when both sides are done!!! I hate politics anyways so I'm obviously not the best person who be talking about it with it's not that I don't care about what happens to this country but I am sick of the bashing that comes with it. If your voting for Obama fine if your voting for Romney also fine. But dont make people feel like their trash or don't have intellagence just because their not voting for who you like.
So the other day I get a recorded phone message by a little girl telling us to vote for her dad for a local position...now we're getting little kids involved?
The problem is, no matter who wins, there's still going to be clustercrap.
Obama wins, the right's going to be up in arms, they're going to spread more vicious hateful rumors and the politicians will continue to politically sabotage whatever he's trying to do, and they'll start to campaign for 2016 the second they announce he won. Then it's 4 more years of partisan gridlock with the side that did most of the damage playing victim for wanting more of what caused the damage in the first place (and getting it).
Romney wins (minus his Emperor's New Plans), the right will be insufferably smug, the media will be on his side, and anyone to the left of the far right (again, including Moderate Republicans) will be silenced, bullied, marginalized while the politicians and their backers do whatever the heck they want, screw everything up, and after 2 terms, they'll get another patsy like Obama to take the blame so they can manipulate the system to win the next election to start the cycle over again.
You think it's maddening being on the outside... when you look at it from the inside, it's like... uh... you ever watch a Seinfeld episode where George does something stupid, and you've seen the episode a billion times, and every single time you SHOUT at the top of your lungs at the TV, "NOOOO! Don't do it, stupid!" when he does it? Well, there's a bigger chance of George will hear you from inside the TV and not eat the eclaire out of the garbage than anyone hearing you warning them about politics.
Wow I haven't had that happen. I've just been getting stuff in the mail every dang day. I have gotten a few phone calls but I never pick them up. They don't call my husband that much cause I guess he's affliated with a party. I'm an Independant voter so I got both sides trying to sway me whatever way they can.
While we're on the subject of election campaigns, here is what I'd like to ask: how do they make personalized phone calls? For example, the other day my mom was telling me that she got a personalized phone call from Mitt Romney, him physically saying her first name. Do these politicians actually read through a list of names to be used or something for recording, or is there some special technology they use to simulate the name saying?
Hopefully what I'm about to say doesn't get me banned but I just know sometimes it feels like you think people are totally in the wrong or below you if they don't have the same views you do. Maybe I am misunderstanding you but sometimes to me that's how you come off. And you have said some things to me in the past that have been hurtful and make me feel like I'm below you or something. I know this doesn't really have anything to do with what you wrote but...
I don't know why, but that made me laugh. So hard.
I never watched Seinfeld.
You are missing out! Seriously one of the best shows of all time.
I actually never really got into the show myself. It's not that I've never watched it just wasn't my cup of tea.
I do not mean to be offensive at all, nor have I taken any. This election is giving me ulcers because I'm completely afraid of that the other party has become. Not to mention Romney was the part time governor of my state and he totally ruined it. My father could have lost his job with all the reckless spending cuts. We lost fire houses and police stations making us less safe. Not to mention the fact that my town, to make up for the budget that guy squandered, has a garbage tax, making me buy expensive AND very flimsy garbage bags that I have to squeeze a week's worth of garbage into. Yeah, I lost the luxury of using multiple black bags. I'm just speaking in a perspective, and that's why I'm a little angry passionate about this.
But, frankly, not taking sides and not seeing the evil disgusting underbelly... that's advantage YOU! I actually do commend you for wisely staying out of it. It's... it's icky in here. Frustrating and icky. I wish I had the luxury of unseeing things I can't unsee. I dearly wish my innocence back.
