The Politics Thread

Recommended Posts

After watching last nights Republican debate I have to say that I cannot stand Romney. He's all over the place. Not matter of factly at all and mutters on loose strings of political blather. All politicians do this but with Romney it's so obvious I find him totally vacuous. Ron Paul is too tedious and also seems too tender. Would Hillary or Obama bring him to crack his voice in a heated debate? Too skaky.

I like McCain, Thompson and Giuliani. Not surprising considering they're the leaders. If the party has anything to stand for it must choose between these 3 carefully. The Republican party is about to get a new and better voice and tact than it does presently.

Some will say that there exist questions on McCain and Giuliani due to policy skeletons in the closet or bad baggage, but at least these guys are SHARP. I like Thompson the most but he won't win. Too bad he had to reach out to the Bible belt but he had no choice. Do this or lose. He doesn't worry me about being dishonest on that flipflop. He had no choice! His attacks were cheap but effective last night but IMO; bring it on!

Thompson :clap:

America needs this and the Democrats are looking to turn in a new positive direction. God bless America. She needs it.

those comics are really juvenile and vulgar.

that is exactly the point why it's funny, turning politic into a vulgar and juvenile comic show. You might not like South Park hein?

Steve Bell is the greatest political cartoonist of all time. Plus, if you think that is vulgar in the british media you haven't read the two right wing british stalwarts The Sun and the DailyMail.

Its a tough world out there and if you can't handle a little prodding, then you aren't tough enough to handle politics or life.

South park = witty, Steve Bell = not. The British on the whole are quickly corrupting themselves in just about every possible way, comparisons are not apt.

Anyways, came across something that may explain a few things about our buddy Pierre. Turns out their is a scientifically documented mental health gap between left and right.

haha dion is a sad loser. kinda sad when harper acts like he has a majority and the supposedly official opposition doesn't give a sh*t.

Welcome to the circus:

minority government conservatives- Harper- but i act like i have a super majority and a mandate from the people

official opposition: jack layton and thomas mulcair and danny williams the pride of newfoundland!

official Losers 1A Liberals: went on a hiking trip, no where to be found

official Losers 1B bloc quebecios: who are out for a permanent bbq somewhere in their nation, location unkown, afraid to come out where ever they are

The evil Sith back bench tories: plotting something sinister

some lady outside named elizabeth may is talking

the media: lost with the liberals angry at the tories, so they try to tell the liberals to do something through secret messages, but since the liberal party is a dead horse they're like "talk to jack he's the official opposition".

the public: in a confused state of mind, wondering who they elected in the first place, apathy continues to grab hold

------------------

ADD: This might be the greatest political website ever, brought to you by the official opposition in ottawa the ndp.

Oh first BC provinicial news!

The drunken marital cheater's heir apparent quits the B.C. Liberals rumour has it she's running for mayor of Vancouver against mafia boss sullivan.

Prediction: If she runs she splits the right vote, Vision or Cope wins, the people win, and vancouver wins.

Just a refresher course this is our premier:

campbell_mug_shots.jpg

pulled over with his chief of staff who is his mistress, on vacation in Hawaii.

A pretty good move by the Québec government who is already sending a delegation of economic specialists in Rio, Brazil to ask about and evaluate what kind of needs and expertise will be needed to build/organise the 2016 Olympics infrastructures.

Rio said that we're among the first nations to do this. Good to heard.

Finally, the federal Grits come up with an attack that isn't stupid other than: "doorknobs is not legit infrastructure spending since it already exists". H1N1 shortage is a grenade Harper can ill afford. But, it just goes to show how derailed the Liberals are. It took this long?

De-facto Majority. Iggy is no better than Dion.... Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Maybe the Grits are finally waking up!

Doorknobs? They might be right but Canadians generally don't listen to people waving doorknobs! :wacko:

Anyone remember Angelo Esposito?  He was the can't-miss prospect in the 2007 draft that wound up busting completely.  Evidently, he's found his second career...

Well I hope he busts one more time.

 

I don't remember him being touted as a "can't miss" prospect when he was drafted, but rather the opposite: a high risk, high reward guy.

A year or so before the draft, he was hyped as the possible number one pick.  The Habs were skewered by some for passing on the next homegrown superstar.
