Ha, ha, there goes one of the right’s favorite lying points.

What’s the truth? Oil production did fall by 14 percent on federal lands – onshore and offshore – but that was only in one year, from 2010 to 2011.
And it was mainly the result of fallout from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010.
But Obama is correct, that since he took office, oil production on federal lands is up.

In both 2009 and 2010, oil production increased … so even with the 14 percent drop last year, overall production on federal land is still up 10.6 percent since 2008.

Well, it was entertaining.

Did it matter, tho?

Finally – on the issue of whether or not this changed your vote. In the CNN poll, 25% said they were more likely to vote for Obama and 25% said more likely to vote Romney. In the PPP poll, it was 37% more likely for Obama and 36% more likely to vote for Romney.

Just a little something to think about regarding the upcoming foreign policy debate:

It will be moderated by Bob Schieffer. Last Sunday, on his show there was a discussion of the Benghazi issue. CBS asked the White House to provide a representative to be interviewed for that segment.

The White House declined to do so.

This is for Puddl…

The Boston Herald reports that Benjamin Thompson, who is African-American, is running “Obama supporters for Brown” that is paying about 20 “volunteers” a daily rate that works out to about $8 per hour. Their responsibilities include wearing pro-Brown T-shirts. At least four of the participants are homeless.

They’re paying black people to wear their shirts.

@2,

Looks like Obama will win, but I wouldn’t get too prideful about it. There’s an outside chance that Romney could win.

It doesn’t really matter that much to me because I plan on writing-in someone else for prez and vice-prez. I don’t see either Obama or Romney ending our costly overseas empire, withdrawing all troops from foreign lands, minding our own business on the interantional front, repealing the Patriot Act, going to a flat rate income tax, actually reduciong the size of government by firing governemt workers and abolishing government agencies, establishing term limits for members of the House, Senate and Supreme Court, and adopting tort reform in the form of a loser-pay rule to eliminate frivolous lawsuits.

That’s not so much to ask for, but neither Obama or Romney want to do any of the above because those ideas mean real change, not slogans to get their happy asses elected or re-relected.

7. Michael spews:

@3,6
Regardless of who gets elected, the sun will still rise in the east and set in the west. I’m kinda tired of both sides acting like this isn’t the case. But, like most things the lying, the hate, and the asshattery is far greater on the right then it is on the left. I don’t see people on the left claiming that slavery was a good thing, saying lets send Mitt back to Mexico, or claiming that there’s some such things as legitimate and illegitimate rape.

8. Serial conservative spews:

Michael @ 7

Perhaps you don’t hear those comments from the left but you could hear Chris Matthews likening Romney/Ryan plan to Sharia law yesterday, and not so long ago you had Grayson (who’s in it again) doing the GOP Plan: Die Quickly schtick, etc. Last year there was Ryan pushing Granny off a cliff.

If you choose to cherry-pick the worst things from each side, yes, it will look awful. Both side have plenty of assholes.

There’s stuff you aren’t hearing, clearly. Perhaps you should be listening in different places.

9. rhp6033 spews:

You may have recognized a frequent Republican tactic When faced with a problematic issue the Republicans have countered by denying that any change took place, then demanding sources, then dismissing the sources, then quibling over details, etc. If ultimately succesful, the original issue gets muddied into arguments over details, so that the average voter gets tired of trying to follow the issue, and even journalists end up calling the issue “disputed”. There are lots of examples, too many to get bogged down here.

But Romney found himself on the receiving end of such tactics, which he brought about himself, when he tried to bring up the Bengazi attack again. As unsavory as it is to use the deaths of five Americans for partison advantage, he could arguably have a legitimate issue on whether the consulates were adequately protected on the anniversary of 9/11. I’m confident the investigation will show the Obama administration acted reasonably based on the intelligence available, but since the investigation is ongoing I won’t comment on it further here.

But the point is that Romney overconfidently stepped right into a mud pit when he tried to argue, as Ryan did, that the Obama administration didn’t admit it was a terrorist act until two weeks later.

Now, you know, and I know, that he was in the Rose Garden the very next morning calling it a terrorist attack. There were plenty of posts that day, and the next, by trolls on this board who barely contained their glee that there was possibly some issue which might divert attention away from the blunders of the Romney campaign and other Republicans.

So now the trolls, on this board and on A.M. talk radio and Fox News, are having to argue over when the President acknowledged it was a terrorist attack. Fortunately for the President, his comments (as are all public comments by the Commander-In-Chief) are recorded for posterity. So the trolls are left trying to argue about whether he used the right words and word order to their satisfaction. In the meantime, the President’s comments are played again and again by the news media as they attempt to dissect the claims.

Way to shoot yourself in the foot, fellas. Romney and Ryan should just keep their mouths shut.

What I wish Obama had said during the debate:

“Governor, you are free to attempt to Etch-A-Sketch (TM)your positions whenever it pleases you to do so, but you can’t Etch-A-Sketch TM) the facts”.

12. rhp6033 spews:

So, what’s the Romney plan for the next debate? Their foreign policy “plans” have just been some broad generalities so far.

If Ryan’s comments in the Biden/Ryan debate are any indication, he will attempt to (a) paint Obama as an “apoligist” for America; (b) that the Romney/Ryan ticket will avoid all foreign policy problems by projecting an image of “strength” and “consistency”. The only other thing I can think of is for him to call for closer ties with Israel defense forces.

But remarkably, the Romney/Ryan foreign policy (as it stands in the heat of a political campaign) looks pretty much like the Obama foreign policy. Contain Iran with sanctions, court allies, etc.

If so, this next debate looks like a sleeper.

13. Michael spews:

@8
I don’t listen to the pundits on either side. The things I’m talking about on the right are coming from people that are running for office and their campaigns. I also give people a pretty wide latitude when it comes to using colorful language to spice things up, like when I call the suburbs evil.

The left does it too, but not to the degree that the right does and the left’s stuff is pretty superfluous, where as the right’s stuff is part of the campaign and points to their core beliefs.

‘Hang out’?

Do you mean that by not keeping track and dissociating myself from each and every act of stupidity on the part of those in my own party that I am complicit?

It wasn’t all that long ago that I was harangued by Doctor Steve for not denouncing the content of a video that I had not/have not seen, a video we now know wasn’t responsible for Benghazi.

Seriously? That’s how high the bar is set for people like me, who take the opposite side of an argument?

If I’m not around much after November 7th, which I will refer to as GOP Gloat Day, that’s pretty much why. It’s tough arguing with people who seem to believe I’m just like everyone else who calls themself a Republican, especially when the argument participation is 10 to 1. I’m not like most Republicans. I’m pro-gay marriage, pro-choice, agnostic/atheist, and I’m willing to pay higher taxes as long as everyone else has to as well. Does that sound like your typical Republican?

I’m able to discern the difference between (most of) the people on HA and the total fucking assholes in the furthest-left perimeter of the political spectrum. Why can’t you give me the same benefit of the doubt?

The third debate is supposed to be the foreign policy debate, so there might not be much economic discussion.

Although I suppose I could try to wrench in the economy in the same way that Obama started talking about education when the question was about AK-47s.

The economy IS the most important thing. To women, the price of gas is more important than the birth control/abortion issue.

In recent weeks the president’s negatives have risen and Romney particularly after this debate has moved into a lead. You saw it in the Gallup poll you talked about. Six point lead, 51-45. Yesterday it was 50-46. This is the first time that Romney has hit 50 percent in the Gallup likely voter poll and the president has never hit 50 percent in the likely voter poll. And no candidate who has led in mid-October with 50 percent or more in the likely voter poll has ever gone on to lose.“

The whole “slavery was a blessing” thing is something that I heard from time to time as a kid and a teen. At the time it was understood that only a handful of racist old crackers said or believed such things and they would only say such things behind closed doors. Then it popped up in a column in our little Kitsap County business weekly a few years back. I was floored. I didn’t think that stuff was still around.

Same with there being legitimate and illegitimate rape, women not getting pregnant if it’s a “real rape,” and the whole “some girls rape easy” thing. I thought that was done and over with. But not only are we hearing it, we’re hearing it from people who hold elected offices and are endorsed by top of the ticket folks. Well, they’re endorsed until they say in public what they’ve previously only said in private.

This shit should be done and over with and we’ve seen no action on the part of anyone on the right to get rid of these guys until they’ve been outed and they’re forced to disown them. It’s fucking disgusting. I think the message to the top of the ticket folks should be clean up your mess or your gone, but we’re not hearing that from anyone on the right, are we.

I’ve always figured that in a presidential debate focusing on foreign policy and/or defense, the challenger has an advantage over the incumbent. That’s because the challenger has already received the standard “nominee’s briefing” and knows what issues on which he can tell the most outrageous lies. The incumbent can’t counter with the truth because it’s classified.

PUNT! We lesser beings can safely conclude that Master Robert disdains an ambitious man from Illinois who came from very humble roots to win the highest office in the country.. Abraham Lincoln was similarly disdained in his time.

He’d much rather have a child of privilege who enriched himself beyond imagining, mostly at the expense of others not so privileged, in that office.

I mean Bush was similarly privileged and was mostly a failure in the self-enriching department. So Prince Willard is Bush but better in that regard. Aside from the strange religious practices, why wouldn’t the typical right winger want him as President?

I mean, really. Faced with the prospect of the next 20+ years of taking care of an offspring, with all the attendent responsibilities and detrimental career effects therefrom, vs. paying a buck or more for a gallon of gas???? Anybody who chooses gas over birth control is pretty short-sighted.

Why are Republicans headed right toward the cliff on birth control? I understand the abortion issue, but birth control?????

56 – zzzZZZzzzzzzzz… Links to a nutcase Islamophic right wing tool..

Obama said “acts of terror” on Sept 12, 2012..

Right wingers can’t accept facts.

And the motivation?

To those on the ground, the circumstances of the attack are hardly a mystery. Most of the attackers made no effort to hide their faces or identities, and during the assault some acknowledged to a Libyan journalist working for The New York Times that they belonged to the group. And their attack drew a crowd, some of whom cheered them on, some of whom just gawked, and some of whom later looted the compound.

The fighters said at the time that they were moved to act because of the video, which had first gained attention across the region after a protest in Egypt that day. The assailants approvingly recalled a 2006 assault by local Islamists that had destroyed an Italian diplomatic mission in Benghazi over a perceived insult to the prophet. In June the group staged a similar attack against the Tunisian Consulate over a different film, according to the Congressional testimony of the American security chief at the time, Eric A. Nordstrom.

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/16/world/africa/election-year-stakes-overshadow-nuances-of-benghazi-investigation.html

So the administration had good reason to talk up the video. The militia group involved was only known to care about Libyan and religious issues. They apparently had a history of attacking foreigners over “insults to the prophet”.

So why wasn’t there more security on 9/11??

Oh this!

And now the pendulum swings the other way:

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) – Applications for U.S. unemployment benefits jumped 46,000 to a seasonally adjusted 388,000 in the week of Oct. 7-13, the Labor Department said Thursday, erasing the sharp drop from the prior week. Claims had fallen two weeks ago to a four-year low, but the decline mainly stemmed from a statistical quirk in the data that often happens at the end of a quarter and it was not reflective of a rapidly improving labor market. Initial claims from two weeks ago were revised up to 342,000 from an original reading of 339,000, based on more complete data collected at the state level. Economists surveyed by MarketWatch expected claims to rise to 365,000 in the most recent week.

The aberrations in the employment statistics that caused the steep drop in unemployment two weeks ago are now settling out – just in time to make Obama look bad, since the upward spike is shortly prior to the election.

Food for thought: What do you think this upward spike means when all the data is recalculated for the October employment report, due out on the Friday morning before the November election?

You see, Willard is just that, a pretender, a cardboard cut-out of a bona fide human. We’ve seen this over and over – on this topic, the day after the attack and Willard’s disastrous press conference. He got up there and shamelessly – and cluelessly – pranced and smirked and strutted like he was scoring a goal (that everyone knew he wasn’t) – when the situation called for far far different emotions and optics and behavior of someone presuming to be President.

Seems all Obama needs to do is show up – and actively be himself – and Willard looks terrible – the other night he was preening and entitled and haughty – also actively being himself, BTW. Willard only looks good if Obama lets him get away with the charade (which was his BIG mistake first time around).

See, the problem is yours, because your guy only looks good in a vacuum, and falls apart and shows his true colors when examined, particularly when in the presence of an actual human.

108. Harry Poon spews:

re 107: “Maybe he’d be doing better if some of them had jobs.”

Maybe if social security were strengthened and the retirement age lowered there would be jobs for them to have.

For example, forcing a janitor to work until he’s seventy because lawyers live longernowadays than they did when social security was implemented is another one of those retarded austerity schemes that you guys mindlessly propose.

The janitor and other workers in similar jobs live to about the same age as when social security was implemented.

“Oh, and they’re talking about raising the retirement age, because people live longer — except that the people who really depend on Social Security, those in the bottom half of the distribution, aren’t living much longer. So you’re going to tell janitors to work until they’re 70 because lawyers are living longer than ever.

Still, I guess this is what it takes to get compromise, if by compromise you mean something the center-right and the hard right can agree on.”

So, we all agree that $250,000 yearly is middle class and that maybe the witholding threshold for social security should be raised, thereby keeping social security safe and solvent for generations to come.

You should be in favor of that. I mean, how much money can you make blathering for rightists on the internet?

116. Serial conservative spews:

It wasn’t fatuous. I truly did not understand that by ‘withholding’ you meant increasing the FICA Social Security tax to incomes up to $250,000.

Maybe that’s my fault but when I hear $250K in this election season I think income, I don’t think SS withholding levels.

So let’s summarize:

Obamacare will already hit people with dividend income for another 3.8%. That’s a done deal.
Obama wants to increase taxes on those earning more than $250K.
Now you want to increase the Social Security tax on the higher earners.

That’s a triple-whammy on the higher echelon, Harry.

118. Liberal Scientist is a slut who occasionally wears a hoodie spews:

maybe the witholding threshold for social security should be raised, thereby keeping social security safe and solvent for generations to come.

When it was designed, the SS income cap was designed so the tax would capture a certain fraction of the total dollars paid in wages in the country. Over the years, the fraction of income of the total that is below the cap has shrunk, and thus SS is collecting only a fraction of the portion of total wages it was designed to do. Raising the ceiling would simply make SS do what it was designed to do, and thereby ensure its solvency well into the future.

Yes, and for everyone below the ceiling they pay more.

Are you being deliberately dense, or is it a sad and inevitable byproduct of reading all those emails from Karl Rove?

The tax was designed to capture a certain fraction of total income, and do so at a particular rate. To best account for the shift in relative income toward upper earners one raises the ceiling.

To protect those upper earners from paying their share, you tax the people at the lower end at a higher rate.

Very clear distinction.

I though this was an interesting factoid

Romney’s big ‘four years tuition-free’ scholarship covered just a small fraction of college costs

romney: When I was governor of Massachusetts, to get a high school degree you had to pass an exam. If you graduated in the top quarter of your class, we gave you a John and Abigail Adams scholarship four years tuition-free to the college of your choice in Massachusetts that’s a public institution

.
Here’s the reality: At the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, when the John and Abigail Adams scholarship was established in 2004, tuition was $1,714. On the other hand, fees were $7,881. That means that the scholarship program Romney is so proud of, the one he mentioned in the very first minutes of the debate, covered 17.8 percent the year he left office. And that’s not even talking about room and board.

There are two ways to equally distribute the burden with SS:

2. Increase the retirement eligibility age.

I would be OK with either of those.

New Obama Record! Federal & State Welfare spending tops $1 TRILLION in 2011, up over 30% in 3 years. Clearly, Obama is trying to create a welfare nanny state making as many people dependent on the government as possible.
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/10/18/welfare-spending-topped-1-trillion-in-2011-study-shows/

Yesterday we had National Journal telling us Obama is pulling back from NC, FL, VA.

Today WaPo tells us that Romney is also re-allocating, only he’s going for the 40-state win, it seems:

At the same time, the GOP presidential nominee’s advisers and the Republican National Committee are looking to give Romney more routes to reaching the 270 Electoral College votes needed for victory. They are weighing whether to shift resources from North Carolina, where Republicans express confidence of winning, into states long considered safe territory for President Barack Obama, including Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.

I wonder when those emails will be leaked.

After the Clinton legal team had a chance to review the State Department cable traffic between Benghazi and Washington, the experts came to the conclusion that the cables proved that Hillary had in fact given specific instructions to beef up security in Libya, and that if those orders had been carried out — which they weren’t — they could conceivably have avoided the tragedy.

Clearly, someone in the Obama administration dropped the ball — and the president was still insisting that it was not his fault.

In the end, then, Hillary decided to assume responsibility to show that she was acting more presidential than the president.

And he, he has a very different job from … Reagan was all about America, and you talked about it. Obama is – we are above that now.

The episode is a strange twist in D’Souza’s otherwise meteoric rise in the evangelical world.

He broke into the Christian conference and megachurch market in 2007 with the release of a book that year, What’s So Great About Christianity.

D’Souza now receives speaking fees sometimes in excess of $10,000 from Christian groups, putting him in the top tier of Christian speakers. In 2010 he became president of The King’s College, New York City, which is supported by Campus Crusade for Christ, now called Cru. At that time he moved from California to New York, with his wife staying in California.

Obama could have done a lot worse. I do not think that you understood the grin of triumph that Obama had when he looked at Romney as he was lying through his teeth about his stance on abortion (or, repositioning, as your side has so delicately described it).

168. Harry Poon spews:

Although, to be fair to Romney, I do not think that he would attempt to give the chacellor of Germany a backrub at an international confab like Bush did — but only because he’s too stiff and formal, not because he’s smarter.

Also, to be fair to Bush, I have always admired Bush for his physical agility in avoiding getting thwacked in the face by the shoe that the Iraqi journalist hurled at him.

In the wake of the Treasury Department’s newly released summary of federal spending for 2012, it’s now possible to detail just how profligate the Obama years have been.

Of those polled before the vice-presidential debate, Biden had a 49 percent favorable to 41 percent unfavorable rating, while those interviewed after the debate gave him a 44 percent favorable to 47 percent unfavorable evaluation. Ryan’s ratings among those polled before the debate stood at 46 percent favorable to 41 percent unfavorable. For those surveyed after the debate, his ratings were 50 percent favorable and 40 percent unfavorable. Of those who watched the debate, 42 percent thought Biden did the better job, while 51 percent thought Ryan did better.

Voters mostly thought that their own party’s candidate prevailed in the debate. Among debate watchers, 88 percent of Republicans thought Ryan did the better job, while 93 percent of Democrats saw Biden doing better.

After acquiring the compound, we made a number of security upgrades. Among other steps, we extended the height of the outer wall to 12 feet with masonry concrete, barb wire, and concertina razor wire.

We increased the external lighting and erected Jersey Barriers outside the perimeter. We also added equipment to detect explosives, as well as an Imminent Danger Notification System. And we installed security grills on windows accessible from the ground, and included escape windows with emergency releases.

There were 5 Diplomatic Security agents on the Compound on September 11th. There were also 3 members of the Libyan 17th February Brigade. In addition, a well-trained U.S. quick reaction security team was stationed nearby at the Embassy annex.

All of these measures and upgrades were taken in coordination with security officials in Benghazi, Tripoli, and Washington.

Obama’s defenders would argue that he inherited the worst economy since the Great Depression, and would have made more progress if not for obstruction from Republicans in Congress. But Democrats held strong majorities in the House and Senate during his first two years.

DUMMOCRAPTS – pond scum!
