Damn, That’s Good!

From my “I wish I had thought of that” file, I bring to you, to use a technical phrase, a freakin’ awesome neologism:

  1. And when you lie about everything else, it’s called “Mittdacity”.

    Let’s hope “Romnesia” really is a curable disease, because a lot of people seem to have caught it. We may need a serious quarantine. Great speech, by the way!

  3. A good one sure enough! Ranks right up there with “Teavangelicals”, all of whom seem to have Romnesia. 😆

    Obamanesia, ……..

    1. Deficit spending has no consequences nor does a national debt that has increased beyond imagination for 50 years (except 4 of them)
    2. The ties that bind will overcome the issues that divide in foreign policy.
    3. The video caused all the turmoil in the Middle East, not #2 above.
    4. An $800 Billion stimulus will keep unemployment below 8%
    5. We must take from the rich and give to others while at the same time try to restart economic growth in GDP
    6. We have the right strategy in Afghanistan (in 2010)
    7, Killing OBL is a good foreign policy???????

    Need I extend that list??

    • The neologism only works if (a) the examples are accurate and (b) the examples actually represent contradictory positions. Only in the oddly-shaped conservative universe are these things both true about your examples. Deficit spending is appropriate in an economic downturn, and the national debt, though burdensome, is not as dangerous as the wealth gap. The ties that bind do indeed bind if one does not unravel them on purpose. Nobody now believes that a single video caused anything. The stimulus was too little, too late, but unemployment is still below 8% at this point. We do not have the right strategy in Afghanistan, but “bugging out” is no longer an option, so a planned withdrawal is the current route. Killing OBL was very popular, and Bush couldn’t do it, nor did Romney show any interest. That makes it reasonable. Need I guess some more points and dispute them?

    Always nice to see a good neologism used in a good cause.

    I must admit that I had to look up the word neologism. According to Wkipedia it means a new word or term, one just entering the language but yet to be accepted as part of the language, English I suppose in this case.

    An example given is use of the word to evaluate psychopathic words or phrases that only have meaning to the mentally ill person stating them!!! Given such an example and not unexpectedly Jane is now suggesting that I am a psychopath I suppose.

    So once again when I offer countering political views herein, well obviously I must be mentally ill for such crazy ideas, right??? Such accusations are right in line with “Chicago politics” used in the Dem campaign this year and in union tactics almost anytime.

    But NOW we see in some polls Romney inching above the 50% level of approval, like 52% to Obama’s 46% in a recent Gallup Poll. As well the hated (in here) Rove has said no incumbent that has failed to reach that 50% level this late in the campaign in our history of polls has won a presidential race. But I suppose Rove is of course mentally ill as well!!!

    Slightly more than two weeks to go and only one more debate. And that one is on foreign policy. No wonder you guys are hearing the footsteps, footsteps that are now coming from AHEAD of you, not behind you. This thing is not over by a long shot but………

    Finally you can bet that Obama will receive some of the above points on Monday. It he only responds “That’s not true”, accuses Romney of “neologism”, or tries to change the subject, well just imagine post debate polling if he does that, just like Jane!!!

    Nope Brad,

    No more points needed from me. Your response simply says you think Obama has done “just fine” in such regards and thus you will probably vote for him. For sure for regular readers and commenters on this blog I expect nothing less than that.

    Now we wait and see the results of the election. But I do wonder if you and others herein are hearing any “footsteps” that are giving you concerns now? I also wonder if such footsteps are only neologisms coming from psychopathic voters???

      • Well, let’s see, if Romnesia was a recognized mental illness, and your insurance included mental health coverage, you could not be turned down because it was a condition that existed before you began your coverage, so I guess the answer (hypothetically) would be yes!

    You Democrats are getting things confused again.

    Obamacare is a system to treat an illness. Romnesia is a cure for an illness, part of that illness being Obamacare.

    You guys cannot figure those kind of things out very clearly. You want to grow GDP, right? But you also try to throw in income redistribution out of concerns for fairness at the same time.

    And in this case of Obamacare and Romnesia, you are trying to use an ILLNESS to fix a CURE of an illness, like your inability to grow GDP!!!

    But if I keep this up I will be as confused as most of you have become trying to figure out what to fix first!!!
