Please join us tonight for an evening of politics and conversation over a pint at the Seattle Chapter of Drinking Liberally.

We meet every Tuesday at the Montlake Ale House, 2307 24th Avenue E. Starting time is 8:00pm. Some people show up earlier for Dinner.



Can’t make it to Seattle tonight? Check out one of the other DL meetings over the next week. Tonight the Tri-Cities and Vancouver, WA chapters meet. On Wednesday, the Bellingham chapter meets, and Thursday night Drinking Liberally Bremerton meets. And on Monday, the Yakima and Olympia chapters meet.

With 233 chapters of Living Liberally, including fourteen in Washington state four in Oregon and three more in Idaho, chances are excellent there’s a chapter that meets near you.

Trolls,

I gotta give props to Willard. Such a strong statement AGAINST killer coal!

http://grist.org/news/the-backwards-inside-out-politics-of-mitt-romney-barack-obama-and-coal/

When he gets around to cutting that killer plant’s owner’s taxes, I’m sure they’ll just all retire and live the good life instead of killing more people.

Great article in the Chicago Tribune of all places about Obama’s pathetic performance and all the lame-ass excuses made by assholes like you lefty’s.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/ct-oped-1009-byrne-20121009,0,4232146.column

Everyone is piling on Obama..even his bought & paid for newspaper.
It just keeps getting funnier and funnier.

Maybe while tipping a couple of brewskis you leftist pinheads could discuss the Black Pastors starting their Anti-Obummer gay marriage campaign. As Puddy remembers from before many of you libtards scoffed at the original statements of black ministers and their God held ideals. Well if they manage to perform this task… IT WILL BE DEASTATING TO OBUMMER!

“During the 2008 elections, 70 percent of African Americans voted to ban same-sex marriage in California while they also voted for Barack Obama for president,” added Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and black outreach director of the pro-life Priests for Life. “We fully intend to shift 25 percent of the black vote from the 2008 election by charging every voter to examine each candidate and vote for the one that supports their core belief in natural marriage.”

This will be the one to watch! Of course the slobbering lamestream heads up the Obummer ASS libtard media won’t cover this either!

The economy is rebounding..

There is an old saying among economists that the best way to assess the state of the economy is to look at people’s underwear.

OK, there’s no such saying. But when he served as chairman of the Federal Reserve, Alan Greenspan did use the sales of male underpants as a way to take the temperature of the country’s economic well being. And if the Maestro were to take a peek right now, he’d find evidence that things are gradually improving.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/09/underwear-sales-growth-economy_n_1952214.html

Of course Alan Greenspan would say something like that. Just because he’s married to Andrea Mitchell or some such twaddle..

Poor news for Bob.. This theory would have to be about male undergarments.. Anything female is immediately disdained and discredited to a typical ha troll.

Hey Mr. Mike-
It was you idiots who kept telling us the election is over and Obama will crush Romney. Can you blame us for being happy at the recent turn of events?
Come on Mike, if it were the other way around, you’d be spinning cartwheels.
Romney phone and door-to-door campaign is dominating in swing states. McCain was too lazy to do this. Romney is leaving no stone unturned and is really unleashing his warchest in these swing states..much more effectively than the jive talk from Obama/Biden.
Glad to here you have befriended Taliban Barry. Obama really thinks he can talk Muslim Extremists into being kinder and gentler.
Good luck with that.

Seattle Hip-Hop artist Macklemore has gone from being the top Hip-Hop artist on i-Tunes to being the top selling artist on i-Tunes. And he’s done this without having a label or much, if any, air play.

I point this out because I see it as a marker as to how our economy and society works today and will work in the future. I doubt Obama or Romney, the Democrats or the Republicans understand this. But, a 29 year old rapper from Seattle gets it.

We need new people in high places.

Really? Where is that?

Obama really thinks he can talk Muslim Extremists into being kinder and gentler.

That’s funny asshole. Wanna know why? Because the phrase “kinder and gentler” is straight out of Bush’s mouth. Not the Bush who was on watch for the deadliest attack on American soil led by Bin Laden. The Bush who was in the administration that gave birth to Bin Laden in the first place.

Hey Jerry,
The Obama campaign released its September 2012 fund raising totals last week. A 2012 campaign monthly record of $181,000,000.

Funny. I don’t recall the Gekko/Galt campaign led by the world’s greatest business leader in all history being able to get that data together and get it out.

Why would that be?

16. MikeBoyScout spews:

@14 Michael, The Curiosity Mars Rover is really f*cking cool, and there are some really cool Boeing workers right here in Puget that have had a piece of that, but our current President does not deserve much credit for that.

17. MikeBoyScout spews:

Hey Jerry,
I know you think Gekko/Galt is dominating and all, but other than having his ass kicked in fund raising in September, how do you explain this?

Republican nominee Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign is diverting substantial resources from Pennsylvania to Ohio, according to a knowledgeable campaign source who requested anonymity due to the sensitivity of the matter.

I mean, Slick Willard wasn’t lying to the fine people in Pennsylvania last week when he said
“We’re going to win Pennsylvania.”

Bitter salty tears Jerry.

Hey look it’s another backwards fuck-wad for slavery and guess what party he belongs too.

Another state Republican has been found to not only defend slavery, but call President Abraham Lincoln a Marxist.

After state Rep. Jon Hubbard was found defending slavery and ridiculing African-Americans in his memoir, the Arkansas Times has uncovered more pro-slavery rhetoric from another state representative. In letters sent to the Democrat-Gazette, state Rep. Loy Mauch uses the Bible to defend slavery, putting him in a long line of questionable Republican officials.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The State Department said Tuesday it never concluded that the consulate attack in Libya stemmed from protests over an American-made video ridiculing Islam, raising further questions about why the Obama administration used that explanation for more than a week after assailants killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans.

http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_US_LIBYA?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2012-10-09-18-50-07

I wonder if Lib Sci still insists on waiting for the official report to learn whether there was a terrorist strike against the US by Al Queda on 9/11.

Just think, libbies. If Team Obama hadn’t tried to hide it, it would have faded into memory by now.

Instead, there are hearings about it this week, Ryan gets to hammer Biden with it, and it’s still live material for debate # 2.

Oh, and don’t miss this:

According to an email obtained Tuesday by the AP, the top State Department security official in Libya told a congressional investigator that he had argued unsuccessfully for more security in the weeks before Ambassador Chris Stevens, a State Department computer specialist and two former Navy SEALs were killed. But department officials instead wanted to “normalize operations and reduce security resources,” he wrote.

Eric Nordstrom, who was the regional security officer in Libya, also referenced a State Department document detailing 230 security incidents in Libya between June 2011 and July 2012 that demonstrated the danger there to Americans.

230 security incidents over a year, demonstrating danger to Americans.

Was Team Obama waiting for an even 250?

David Paleologos, Suffolk University Political Research Center Director, told Bill these states are clearly going to Romney.

“In places like North Carolina, Virginia and Florida, we’ve already painted those red. We’re not polling any of those states again. We’re focusing on the remaining states.”

December 19, 2008: President Bush approved a bailout plan and gave General Motors and Chrysler $13.4 billion in financing from TARP (Troubled Assets Relief Program) funds, as well as $4 billion to be “withdrawn later.”

But, in both cases the deal was sealed when Obama was in office.

Get this..the latest from the Obama Liar in Chief Regime. This one is mind-boggling. It ought to sink the Good Ship ObamaPop for good.


The State Department denied Tuesday it ever concluded that the deadly consulate attack Sept. 11 in Libya was an unplanned outburst prompted by an anti-Islam movie, despite public statements early on by some in the Obama administration suggesting that was the case.
The Obama administration used that explanation for more than a week after assailants killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans. Most notably, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, said in several TV interviews five days after the attack that it appeared to be “spontaneous” violence spinning out of protests of the film.
State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland backed up Rice’s statements in a press briefing a day later: “I would simply say that … the comments that Ambassador Rice made accurately reflect our government’s initial assessment.”
And White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, as late as a week after the attack, said that based on initial information, “we saw no evidence to back up claims by others that this was a preplanned or premeditated attack.”

Can you even imagine attempting to deny something that is all over the news backed by numerous public comments on tape??
Team Obama has gone nuts.
LIARS!!

36. Jerry spews:

Here is yet another example of how ugly & vicious the lunatic left is-

Actress Stacey Dash was attacked with negative tweets after voicing her support of Mitt Romney on Twitter over the weekend. Many comments were racially charged and others suggested the star of the 1990s hit ‘Clueless’ should just “kill herself.”
One man wrote, “This hurts, but you a Romney lover and you slutting yourself for the white man only proves why no black man would marry u.” Another Twitter user said: “She’s an indoor slave, you know that, sis.” Many tweets expressed disbelief that a woman of African American heritage would vote for anyone but Obama, and some suggested that her account must have been hacked.
The backlash began on Sunday, after Dash tweeted “Vote for Romney: The only choice for your future,” along with a provocative photo of herself wearing a red Baywatch-style tank suit standing in front of an American flag. “Kill yourself you old hag…” a Twitter used lashed out. “The only choice for your future.” Another wrote, “You’re an unemployed black woman endorsing @MittRomney. You’re voting against yourself thrice. You poor beautiful idiot.”

Stacey Dash is beautiful and obviously well informed. Shows the ugliness of black racists who believe you must vote for Obama if you are black. Disgusting. But I’ll bet the HA crowd was in there posting these ugly comments.

Truth?? What’s that??

Mitt Romney may have won the debate with Barack Obama but he threw truth and facts out the window while he was polishing up his presidential act. Today, Fox & Friends not only dismissed concerns for the truth but actually attacked Democrats for making it an issue. (h/t bemused)

During a discussion this morning with Laura Ingraham on the subject of Romney’s truthfulness, or lack thereof, they played a clip of Democrats and other liberals accusing Romney of having lied during the debate. Afterward, Steve Doocey sneered, “That’s all they got?”

43. YLB spews:

Willard is a dutiful Mormon, doesn’t smoke or drink and doesn’t stray outside his marriage (as far as we know anyway).. To him, that’s all that matters…

Romney’s sense of morality seems to be based on a kind of fierce individualism, in which he apparently believes himself to be morally superior by dint of his own personal habits, and assumes no responsibility for the fate of those less rigorous in their personal code, should they find an appeal to their baser instincts in the words and actions of the beyond-reproach church leader, dutiful husband and father of five.

It all amounts to a kind of moral bankruptcy, in which the former Massachusetts governor presumes he is entitled to a morally superior reputation for which he has not kept up the payments. It’s not that hard to be good to your family and friends. If true morality is evidenced by how one treats strangers, Romney’s reputation as a moral actor should be under water.

The guy is so arrogant, he truly believed the MSM would whitewash anything he does.
Looks like those days are over.

Look, Obama in the past week mentioned Big Bird 8 times, and he talked about Libya ZERO.
Obama brought up Elmo 5 times and talked about jobs and the economy ZERO.
Deflect much??

Sesame Street is a huge money making machine. They do not need taxpayer money. Period. yet they have managed to grab tens of millions over the years.

And now, even Sesame Street is BITCHSLAPPIN” Obama for use the likeness of Big Bird in ads.

Obama will go down as the worst President ever..worse than Herbert Hoover because of his lies and failure to protect American lives in Libya when he knew there was a high threat level. Obama has blood on his hands now.

That and other China-related holdings by Bain funds in which Mr. Romney has invested are a reminder of how he inhabits two worlds that at times have come into conflict during his campaign for the White House.

As a candidate, Mr. Romney uses China as a punching bag. He accuses Beijing of unfairly subsidizing Chinese exports, artificially holding down the value of its currency to keep exports cheap, stealing American technology and hacking into corporate and government computers.

I, also, BTW, have no personal knowledge that Barack Obama fucks around on his wife, or has done so in the past. Doesn’t mean he’s been faithful. I just have no personal knowledge that he hasn’t. I assume that was your point with Romney when you said what you said.

Although with Obama, there’s the name Vera Baker, who mysteriously vanished during the runup to the 2008 election. Tell me, is there a whisper name associated with Romney, YLB? Since you’re part of the moral police squad, I figured that if anyone knows, you do.
