Freepers "Got Wood" Stupidity
Edited on Fri Oct-08-04 11:46 PM by GeorgeBushytail
I was gloating over at freeperville and came upon this thread:
"W" stands for Wood! Get your Wood Bush-Cheney Wood Wallpaper here!
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1239721/posts

It's a bunch of clueless gloating over the supposed Bush "Want some wood?" debate "masterstroke".

They are actually selling Bush "Need some wood" souvenirs, not realizing that the whole thing is about to go as sour as Cheney's "First Time I Met You" jab at Edwards.

I smell Victory!

3. They think that was a GOOD thing?
I watched the debate in a bar with the sound off, and subtitles rolling. There were two lines that got shocked hoots (not positive ones) from the crowd.

"That answer almost makes me wanna scowl."

and "Need sum wood?"

Can't wait to hear it in audio.

What a complete dolt.

4. Just to clarify, in case ANYONE hasn't heard ...
... Bush DOES, indeed, own part of a timber company ("it's news to him" ... HAHAHAHAHAHA ... clueless as his rich daddy!) ...

see factcheck.org or the brand-new Web site, needsumwood.com

from which he received a tax break. It's dangerous that a guy who doesn't even know his portfolio is preaching to companies.

out like that that didn't have merit! I still don't know all the details, but I think Bush is going to have some 'splainin to do.

25. Kerry knew it and threw it out
there as bait. He knows how these "small business" tax scams work. He probably suspected Bush couldn't keep track of the multitude of tax evading scams he's been involved with over the years.

The doofus fell right into the trap. Bush is so full of himself he can't read Kerry. He couldn't see the punch coming and stepped right into it. He's going to look like an asshole to a lot more people tomorrow.

Bwahhahahaha - he got sucker punched. And we might even get some open debate going about the scams that these crooks use to dodge paying their due share of taxes.

26. Opening To Enron Anyone?
Tom Brokaw mentioned a fact Kerry hasn't used, and maybe for some good reason. Just like the worst creation of jobs in 75 years...it's gonna be negative no matter....there's an even more telling stat. Since 1930 no President has ended a term with the stock market lower than when he came in.

The dirty secret is how many people lost thousands of their life savings when the markets tanked and the rich walked and are still walking. Corporate greed is a lightning rod issue that Kerry could use to really tar this loser on the domestic front as this debate will boil down to an argument of classes...rich vs. middle class.

We haven't heard a word about Enron, Worldcom and all the stock swindles that happened...of course that was before 9/11 and thus totally irrelevent to Bunnypants.

Thoughts?

37. And his only response is that it was a correction
in other words - President Clinton had such an unprecedented record during his two terms that it's not fair to hold him to the same standard.

16. Does he still own it?
Or did he used to? If he used to he is technically correct.

Although I think we can count on the media to not catch that kind of nuance.

19. The most frightening part is that, on one of their threads, they actually
have the paragraph from factcheck.org that STATES CLEARLY THAT BUSH OWNS PART OF THE TIMBER COMPANY ... meaning that Bush has NO CLUE that he owns a timber company.

And they're still saying "need some wood" is the best line of the night! They're laughing that the paragraph says that Bush declared only $84 of income from it ... which is EXACTLY THE FIGURE KERRY HAD JUST GIVEN before Bush demonstrated his ignorance by saying "I own a timber company?"

What is wrong with those Freepers? Bush's ownership of a timber company is gonna be ALL OVER THE NEWS tomorrow.

20. What gets me is
That there were one or two posters who actually bothered to check and posted the true facts were completely ignored by everyone posting afterword. The ignorance of the people there is truly amazing.

I think every Freeper should be required to attend a basic education program that teaches reading comphrehension, Logic, Critical thinking and research techniques, as they certainly seem to be lacking in that department.

23. sorry

It's not gonna work. It's been tried, and tried, and tried.... 'Taint no use. They're gonna die that way. Start with young people before they Get That Way. Maybe we can start up a Freeper Exodus International, though- their parents might pay for it, and the whippings (oops, don't mention that) I mean: lessons, are possibly somewhat helpful.

24. Do you think freepers are any more capable of applying logic than bush?
There's a reason they consider him their Lord and Master: he's King of the Republican Trolls.

They cannot, and probably will never, grok the very simple fact that Kerry was explaining to the audience in small words: the bush/Cheney tax cuts are a SCAM and the stats they use to say their cuts went to "small business owners" are part of that scam. The day the freeps comprehend that the wealthy repubs have thoroughly screwed their poor white trash asses is the day freerepublic.com goes off the air.

32. Even more amusing is they completely missed the POINT
The ones that aren't completely ignoring that the timber ownership comment is actually factual, or just dismissing factcheck.org (and Bush's own tax returns) altogether are making excuses, saying they can't believe that Kerry would say $84 of income would qualify Bush as a small-business owner.

So. Dense.

Kerry baited Bush with that, a jab to show that even BUSH qualifies as a small-business owner under Bush/Cheney definitions.

Just when you think they can't be any more stupid, they go and prove you wrong. Troopers, those little freepers.

33. Bush proved Kerry's point with his inane comments.
Kerry's point was that Bush was using the small business deductions loophole inappropriately by claiming a deduction he didn't really deserve. By admitting he didn't even know he had ownership in the company, he proved Kerry's point that Bush was gaming the system.

Did you catch this one?

To: SideoutFred

Not sure I trust factcheck.org after what they did after the VP debate. I think the Pres would know if he had done this, and I do not think he would lie.

What do you suppose this person (and I use the word lightly) thinks factcheck.org did? Fail to buy out the rights to factcheck.com quickly enough? They did it on purpose, evidently, just to make Cheney look foolish!

Factcheck.org is obviously no more than a left wing commie rag, looking for anyway possible to "bring down" the president of the United States!
