"It bugged me that Romney mispronounced Pashtuns, the primary ethnic group in Afghanistan as "Pash-tons" (correct is "Pash-toons"). It's the kind of mistake that you would NEVER make if you had ever actually been briefed by an expert on the country. To those of us who have been-there-done-that, it made him look like he had based his Afghanistan ideas on reading the wikipedia page 10 minutes before the debate.
Obama, by contrast, pronounced Pakistan ("Pa-key-stan") correctly, which is rare for Americans."

Wow that is so nit-picky, what about when Obama kept calling people CORPSMEN...over and over again at a ceremony. I often mispronounce things...you should see how people look at me when I mispronounce MANGA...it's like they give me the laser eyes of death lol.

For those standards then Obama is the best at being "briefed" well enough to be able to do the important things like pronounce Pashtun correct. Though explain why he insisted it was a video that sparked the attacks on the consulate? Obama is no foreign policy guru, he is Jimmy Carter all over again and he straight up lied about it, over and over, along with the rest of his administration.

You beat me to it!

I just.... Man... If I were in charge of the Republican Party, I would issue the following letter to anyone running for office on the Republican ticket.


Dear Republican Politician,

As of this very moment, you are forbidden from entering into a conversation that includes any two of the following topics

God
Rape
Pregancy
Abortion

If you do, we will disown you.

Thanks!

I gotta say that if it's God's will that a rape happens and God's gift that you get a baby out of it then he got some kind of twisted humor.

Then again, he did tell each and every GOP presidential candidate that he wants them to be president.

Replace "women" with "liberals", and I agree 100%:
Our country might have been better off if it was just conservatives voting. There is nothing worse than a bunch of mean, hateful liberals. They are diabolical in how they can skewer a person.

I am, to borrow a phrase from Joe Biden, "deadly serious". Liberals should be prohibited from voting.

Our country might have been better off if it were just intelligent people voting. There is nothing worse than a bunch of mean, hateful, uneducated morons. They are diabolical in how they can skewer the facts.

That kind of pro-life argument amuses me. This from the same people/religion that bans contraceptives and condoms. It's like they forgot their own myth about a Virgin Mary!

I hope I don´t fan the flames but it´s something that I wondered about for some time whenever that issue comes up. I am not a US citizen so I am not so familiar with some parts of your political landscape. Who are these liberals and why do some people despise them so much? I know what the name is supposed to mean in general but no idea what the liberals in the US are like. Political factions differ a lot from country to country even if they share the same label.

Depends on who's talking, but in general liberals = Democrats and conservatives = Republicans.

You'll find American politics to be riddled with logical fallacies. The basic idea here is to include Democrats within the larger "liberals" group so that you can horrify people with the socialistic agenda of "liberals" and imply those ideas are supported by the Democrats.

The same thing happens with the Republicans being lumped in with the conservatives. It's all fun and games.

From my (admittedly remote and foreign) point of view, it's the Democrats who are conservative, since their proposed policies more or less align with the status quo.

Republicans, on other hand, appear to be downright reactionary, since quite of few of them would rather turn back time for a century or so.
