Default 2012 US Presidential Elections Thread

Looks like the Racist...errr Republican Party hopefuls have thrown in their hats to try and kick Obama out of the "Black House" and attempt to reinstate the Fourth Reich that Bush-Cheney created.

So far the contenders are:

Mitt "Universal Healthcare" Romney

probably the front-runner, after coming up a tad short in 2008. Can his Mormon faith (at least he ain't Muzlim) and his socialist Obamney Care allow him to sneak by?
Strengths: a republican who is actually articulate
Weaknesses: Mormon religion and subsidized healthcare for the poor

Michelle "Sarah Palin v 2.0" Bachmann

I know nothing about her asides from the fact that along with Palin, she too could possibly star in granny-**** [played by Lisa Ann] if the campaign doesn't go too well.
Strengths: No Down Syndrome kids to distract her in the Oval Office.
Weaknesses: Makes Sarah Palin look smart.

Rick "I'm So Slick" Santorum

He's the conservative's conservative. He's so conservative he doesn't even believe in homosexuality, stating its something liberals invented just to corrupt the youth and trick them into being liberals out of the perverted sense of social justice. Who needs justice when you can have Slick Rick?

Strengths: Opposes all things liberal: homosexualtiy, tolerance, free speech, gays, blacks, immigrants, Jews, human rights, democracy, elections, and oral contraceptives. Good looks will win the female vote, although as a die-hard conservative, he doesn't believe women should be allowed to vote, "we did just fine as a nation from 1776-1920, when women did not have voting rights".
Weakness: His name can be easily mistaken for Sanitarium, and does not inspire confidence in a "healthy" state of the union.

Herman "The Godfather of Pizza" Cain-leone

The token Uncle Tom. That gets him points right there. Plus, he's got principles. Kinda like anti-torture Mccain, except his principles conform with GOP principles unlike the former Arizona senator and 2008 presidential runner up. Despite being a victim of bigotry in Seperate-but-Equal America, Cain is not afraid of dishing it right back out to American muslims by making sure they pass extra tests before assuming any potential spots in his cabinet. Also, is it just me or does he look like Samuel L Jackson???

Strengths: He's black.
Weakness: He's black.

Tim "T-Paw" Pawlenty

His nickname exudes street cred. But its doubtful how much of the "urban" vote he's going to get, provided the hoodrats find any polls within 30 miles of their homes to begin with. Admittedly, I know very little about him, but I can guess these are his platforms:

Economy: Obama is f***ing up.
Foreign Policy: Is a "strong" supporter of Israel
Healthcare: Who needs it that doesn't already have it?
Gun laws: Why do we need restrictions on semi-automatics?
Gays: They are secretly trying to take over America...oh wait, that was the Muslims. Or was it only Gays who are Muslim???

Strengths: Believes Jesus is his Personal Lord and Savior and He personally endorsed Manifest Destiny and the PATRIOT Act.
Weaknesses: You won't vote for him for fear your wife might develop a crush on him and force you to sleep on the your couch.

Newt "Lewd" Gingrich

This guy should be a front runner. I think he ran for President once. He's been around the scene forever, and is a solid neo-con. He lectures us on family values AND still has time to cheat on his wife twice! Sounds like a republican to me. If Shakib al Hasan doesn't watch out, Gingrich will soon pass him on the list of world's best all-rounders.

Strengths: A bigot in the truest sense of the word. Has experience battling democrats, leftists, and the Beast from the Book of Revelation.
Weaknesses: Has cheated on his wife once more than the maximum allowed GOP limit of four infidelities per candidate per election.

Ron "I have No Chance" Paul

A bit heterodox for a modern day republican. Believes in an isolationist foreign policy (like thats gonna win votes). I kinda like the things he says, but sometimes it sounds like he's too senile to even run a nursing home's Bingo games.

Strenghts: Kind of a maverick.
Weaknesses: No one will actually vote for him.

Obama takes 2012. I honestly don't see any of these Republican candy-dates as legitimate threats. But who knows...

never underestimate the power of American stupidity, bigotry, or naivete.

Obama only won 40% of the white vote in 2008.

Herman Cain upon hearing his GP had the name Abdullah:
Quote:
I said to his physician assistant, I said, 'That sounds foreign--not that I had anything against foreign doctors--but it sounded too foreign," Cain tells the audience. "She said, 'He's from Lebanon.' Oh, Lebanon! My mind immediately started thinking, wait a minute, maybe his religious persuasion is different than mine! She could see the look on my face and she said, 'Don't worry, Mr. Cain, he's a Christian from Lebanon.'"

"Hallelujah!" Cain says. "Thank God!"
http://www.theatlanticwire.com/polit...g-names/45254/
Not the only one going after Muslims, but sad to see this no mark(and yes he is a no mark - ZERO chance of winning the nomination, despite what the Tea Party simpletons think) doing it too.

Too foreign
Thank God he was Christian

I'm not shocked by much anymore when it comes to US politics(which frankly atm is no better than Bangladeshi politics - Republicans refusing to sign things, even if it harms the country to ensure Obama fails) not too different from what the BNP and AL do in Bangladesh...but the continued vilifying of Muslims in such a casual manner is really depressing.

What do you think the reaction would have been, if he said the same about a Jewish doctor?

I hate this stupid Cain guy. Few months back he blatantly said that he won't hire any Muslims in his administration. He has 4-5 women accusing him of sexual misbehavior and now all he cares about is that guys' "religious persuasion"

Lately I think the US politics has became more pathetic than BD politics. In NY Times poll today, 84% of Americans don't trust in Congress. That number is more than Nixon's disapproval rating during the Watergate Scandal.

He makes Sarah Palin look like an intellectual, his foreign policy statements, Good God what an idiot. I don't even want to get into his 999 BS, or his stance on abortion.

Bangladesh has no leaders, look at what the US is offering up, Bangladeshi politicians have sold their souls, Big Business OWNS WASHINGTON.

Herman Cain being considered for Presidency is parrallel to if Nick Griffin was a serious contender for becoming the Prime Minister of the UK. Both make similar statements but deny being racists. Actually no it wouldn't be similar Griffin is better educated, is not a sex offender and I'm pretty sure he knows where Libya is.

Hope Canada, we'll probably have open arms anyways, and the rest of the world braces themselves if any of them comes into power.

Think the Cain Train is about to grind to a halt. His policy men are making statements that suggest he is reevaluating his candidacy.

Good riddance - though I will miss the comedy.

Newt Gingrich working hard to woo the Jewish vote

Quote:
"I think that we've had an invented Palestinian people who are in fact Arabs, and who were historically part of the Arab community. And they had a chance to go many places, and for a variety of political reasons we have sustained this war against Israel now since the 1940s, and it's tragic."
So Palestinians are made up, and they should have left their ancestral homes, because Jews wanted to live there....

The bit that really bothered me wasn't the technicality of the British Mandate, but that the residents should have simply gone away..how ****ing arrogant is that? I know he's trying to suck up to the Jewish lobby, but half of Israel wants a Palestinian state, and here we have a potential US President saying these people should simply disappear.

Newt is taking advantage of Obama's skewed relation with Israel (which was all a show as he vetoed the Palestinian bid), which also happens to affect the Jewish population in the US, since Democrats have always enjoyed having dominance over the Jewish vote. Now we have Obama having tense relations with Bibi/Israel, which now has kind of alienated the Jews and their view on Obama, Newt is simply acting as a new 'hero' for these Jews with his retarded statements.

Ron Paul. He's getting my vote weather he runs or not.

This is a old clip from from the Daily Show, I think back in September. See how hard the media is trying to keep Ron Paul out of sight

Much ado about nothing. Most Jews are too sensible to fall for this ploy. No republican has ever gotten anything close to even half the jewish vote in any election. Newt won't make it either. Yes, right wing Jews and Zionists (who are often not even religious Jews) make the headlines. Daniel Pipes, AIPAC, ADL, etc. But majority of American Jews are center or center left leaning. They know that these same republican racists who are pro Israel are only doing that because their belief is that they will all be converted when Christ Returns. Thats not real love.

Most American Jews are people just like anyone else with real world concerns be it money, healthcare, economy, rising cost of living.

It is conservatives of all stripes who are the real danger to humanity.
