Liar!

The prez did the RomneyBot v2.012 tonight the way Susan Calvin did Herbie in Isaac Asimov’s “Liar,” from “I, Robot.”

Except, of course, the RomneyBot will continue to speak.

    R-money sounds so petulant when he insists on getting the last word for everything … he’s all about fairness (when it comes to him); but not so much when it comes to other people.

    Barry should have taken the gloves off in Debate I.

      Aaaaaaargh! My wife and I were greatly relieved by the President’s performance, but as we turned off the TV we were muttering to each other, “Why the HELL didn’t he do this TWO WEEKS AGO!?”

    I think Mittens is so use to being the CEO that he can’t understand why these commoners are even questioning him. Where are his yes men.

    On the Presidents lack of performance in Debate 1, he had the oportunity to put the election away with that debate. While I think he will still win it now, he will have to fight the whole way home. He had the oportunity to retake the house, now he will have to deal with the dumasses that have that (r) after there name.

    If the Democrats manage to blow this, it’ll be pretty much their own fault. Last time they were up against John “get off my lawn” McCain and Princess Dumbass from the North and won. Pretty much a no-brainer there. This time they face a greedy vulture capitalist and Eddie Munster….if the Repugs could come up with decent candidates they’d probably win in a landslide! I vote for the Democrats this time only because the alternative us MUCH, MUCH worse. How sad is that?

    • khal spencer Says:

      The Repugs managed to drive anyone vaguely resembling “decent” out of the party. Its now the party of old white men who want you off their lawn, right wing bigots, and looney tune princesses from the Great White North. Locally in BombTown, there are some very decent Republicans and in fact I find myself agreeing with them more often than with my own fellow Dems on county issues. But it seems that once you go to the state or Federal level, one has to drink the Kool-aid.

    Now I have to go back and read “Liar.” I’ve got a very old, well-abused copy. I will forever be indebted to the now-ex-girlfriend that introduced me to Asimov’s stuff back in 1988.
