#rsrh Meet Tim Cavanaugh, Obama supporter/concern troll.

Busily attacking Mitt Romney, in the guise of feeling kind of sorry for him because the press is bizarrely treating Romney like the incumbent while giving Obama a pass.  Which is true, but Cavanaugh has pretty much no business saying anything: after all, he helped put us in this mess in the first place by helping to get Barack Obama elected in 2008*.

*Oh, I’m sure that it was a miniscule amount of help.  But it was still an amount.  I voted and stumped for the other guy; and I was smart to do so, because Cavanaugh’s guy turned out to be an, ah, ‘complete disaster.’

I got nothing against Libertarians, per se, but sometimes some of ’em don’t seem to get that elections have consequences.

    Yeah. Bad article. Bad, BAD article. When I don’t like the person that gets nominated to replace the Democrat I oppose, my response is to suck it up and vote for the nominee anyway, while muttering under my breath about how in two/four/six years it’ll be the OTHER people in my party who have to deal with being disappointed. Cavanaugh has seemed, over the last year, to be one of “those” types, going out of his way to let us know he’s not too enchanted with either choice. I guess it’s good to know which temporary allies are already feeling for their knives and eyeing our shoulder blades, just in case.

  • acat says:

    The difference between Libertarians and libertarians often seems to be the difference between infatuation with how things *should* work (Utopian view) and realization that things *don’t* work the way they should. (Dystopian view)

    I am certainly in the second category.


    p.s. this leaves out the Ron Paulistines, who are, often as not, neither Libertarians nor libertarians but statists with a different agenda, or Libertines.

    One would think that some in the media would catch a whiff of what reporting used to be, four short years ago, and would long to return to the days of being the Fourth Estate. Alas, blinded by liberal ideology, they keep telling themselves how wonderful their guy is…

  • countrydoc says:

    Adults have no need to take the Hookers and Weed party all that seriously. They do what they do, and the rest of the country ignores them.

  • acat says:

    Except, countrydoc, that the Green Party cost Al Gore dear in the northwest back in the day.

    I would suggest that if the Libertarian party (which is somewhat distinct from the Libertine Ron Paul fanbois) ever get pragmatic enough to actually work for an election, they’ll pull more support from the GOP than the Dems .. and that *is* a problem.


  • Patrick M says:

    The conservative crackup continues.

    United we stand, divided we fall has given way to fragging anarchists who would rather burn the GOP down to the ground than allow any deviation from their pet issues/hero/conspiracy-theory-du-jour.

    I don’t understand the source of the derangement, but it is a derangement.
