Sooooo much anti-Obama rhetoric here on ATS. It's obvious that the Obama administration has done much more bad than good, but let's get our heads wrapped around the clear fact that being anti-Obama is not a unique attribute that makes you more electable than someone else.

It seems like the GOP candidates (with the exception of an obvious candidate) are tip-toeing around their economic plans, then quickly enthusing about the death penalty and getting all anti-gay marriage, then touting how much they hate Obama etc.. What a bunch of HARLEQUINS. Being opposed to the opposition is not a rarity, it's a standard; DEFINITELY not a political platform!

Yet even here, on ATS, just last week someone was ridiculous enough to say "I WOULD vote for Palin, because she's not OBAMA!". And everyone tallied up the stars on the post like he said "GO death penalty!" at a Tea Party debate.

Someone please take a shovel to my head because the brainless partisan rhetoric on this forum is killing me far too slowly.

Really? Considering your user name, I assumed it was why you came here to ATS.

I just want to add that if you believe in platforms still, you have missed the point of what is happening in this country the last couple of years.

eh - "not being Bush" worked for Obama. I'm not pro-politician, but at this point everybody sucks so much (and noone counts people not voting as people voting for no President) that I'd be willing to vote for Marvin the Martian if he ran on a "not Obama" platform.

When they all suck, and their entire platforms are fictitious together, why not just hire a fictitious character to do the job anyway?

And that's my 20!

I will have to agree that is more political agenda behind the anti obama propaganda in many threads in this forums, but you as a member have the choice to answer back in those threads with facts and help stop the propaganda.

You know criticizing our elected governments corruption regardless of what party may be is our civil right as voters, fact will always win over propaganda.

You know there's a problem with ATS when all of the posts about Obama are Fox News talking points...
He's a socialist! He's a muslim! He wants to take your guns! Anyone would be better than him! No you can't!

This website isn't meant to spread Fox News propaganda...by supporting a republican, you are buying into the system. That's not what this site is for. It's for exposing the secret government behind the scenes.
And you people seem to be doing a very good job of ignoring that all of the Republicans are bought and paid for already.

This website shouldn't lean any way politically, yet it seems the majority are republicans.

I'd sooner vote for a rock than Obama. I'd sooner vote for a boulder than Palin. I'd sooner vote for a pebble than Perry.

That being said, they're all blind, corporatist retards. And that is still not a political platform.

I think the majority of posters on ATS reject both ends of the US's version of the political spectrum.

They want you to think they are retards. They want the people to think that they are smarter than them. It gives them a huge advantage.

S&F

Seeing thru the propaganda is a talent that not many have.

The democratic party is not doing a good job, but at least they haven't outright fought for corporate tax loopholes and mega wealth tax breaks the way the republicans have.

I do not know yet whom I will vote for, but I know that the Ron Paul propaganda machine here on ATS kinda irritates me.

LOL! Well it's no worse than throwing around the word "change" as if it in and of itself is a platform. we need real CHANGE, and that means not voting for Democrats OR Republicans.

Really?

Not being Bush was Obama's winning platform in 2008.

How about two boulders in an over the shoulder boulder holder? Hey, if she makes mayor then perhaps president is next! Barbe-Q probably has as much between the ears as most of our presidential options

Please exit the thread.

This is not a left vs. right nonsense thread in any way and I will not have you hijack it that easily.

I subscribe to neither of these silly ends of the spectrum.

Begone, political troll.

Yes it's much better to vote for someone because he's half black. You know who you are.
