    Re: Would you vote for a candidate who...

    Heck - I might vote for an unrepentant terrorist (depending on who he killed) if he would just balance the federal budget, bring the troops home, cut the military budget in half, end the Patriot Act, close Gitmo, end the Fed AND THEN turned himself in for his crimes once his time in office was over (or kill himself - whichever).

    There isn't a damn thing about before seeking office. You're just adding that because YOU GOT PWNED.
    Hey... don't spill the soup in your pants from excitement.

    I'm not adding anything because you fantasize about getting "pawned".

    And we're free to point out your dishonesty.
    No dishonesty... some here realize what this thread is about... you seem to be out of the loop, which is normal.

    Which has absolutely nothing to do with "before seeking office."
    For me it has everything to do with "before".

    I see you are still completely unable to argue without dishonesty.
    The claim of dishonesty coming from perhaps the greatest prevaricator on the site... you have a penchant for twisting what people say into unrecognizable forms as a tool so you can score some type of victory in your own honesty challenged mind.

    Here is your OP:

    "Would you vote for a candidate who had a relationship with an unrepentant terrorist?"

    Where does it say anything about before office?
    As noted... you have been out of the loop, and if I would like to clarify the OP... I can... and did.

    Really? You mean that Islamic terrorists weren't doing anything before '93? Maybe you should ask the Russians how they feel about that statement.
    You mean to tell me the ouster of Russians from Afghanistan was brought about by terrorists? Interesting.

    And let's not forget how Saudi Arabia had funded terrorists in Israel. Both small and large groups like the PLO.
    Let's have a list of terrorists Reagan and Bush (41 and 43) had a relationship with, used as counsel and assisted his move up the Republican Party ladder.

    (Jeopardy theme music... )

    I see you are deliberately ignoring my point about how terrorism is a method.
    It's a tool, an action and can be a systematic method used by people like Bill Ayers and his merry group of terrorists and Democrat Consultants.

    I see you are still fabricating lies. Anyone can go to those threads and see you are still a huge liar.
    No fabrication... there is a thread on DP illustrating your grand delusions. The best delusion was watching you self destruct on taxes in your first post. It was thanks to your level of arrogance.

    It's funny trying to watch you pretend you never got pwed.
    You try so hard OC... but trying hard and failing is still failing.

    FYI, once again, here is your OP:

    "Would you vote for a candidate who had a relationship with an unrepentant terrorist?"

    And yes, the American people have done so. Obama, Bush and Reagan in the last 30 years.
    And there have been clarifications to the OP you obviously chose to ignore.

    So... would you vote for a candidate who had a relationship with an unrepentant terrorist? Someone who sought out the relationship with said terrorist? Someone like... Bill Ayers (as was noted on pg 3 of this thread and which you either chose to ignore or failed to read)?

    Hahha. CC PWNED you so bad that you are now rewriting history as to what you meant. Typical dishonest Zimmer.

    No dishonesty... some here realize what this thread is about... you seem to be out of the loop, which is normal.
    Really? Why is it that there are pages of people not agreeing with you then? Seems to me that you got PWNED and are now trying to save your thread by rewriting history as to what you actually meant.

    For me it has everything to do with "before".
    Why didn't you write that before then? After all, only after you got PWNED does "before" come up.

    The claim of dishonesty coming from perhaps the greatest prevaricator on the site... you have a penchant for twisting what people say into unrecognizable forms as a tool so you can score some type of victory in your own honesty challenged mind.
    Good luck proving that. After you do, bring back some jelly from the magical space pandas in the Sun.

    You never learned how to debate. That's why you think I twist words. The concept of examining the logic behind one's arguments for flaws was something you never learned. That ain't my problem.

    As noted... you have been out of the loop, and if I would like to clarify the OP... I can... and did.
    Wrong. You got PWNED so now you're trying to somehow get Reagan out of the question. Your bait thread is one of the worst threads DP has ever seen. This *** really should get sewer flushed. You can't even make a decent trap. I'm embarrassed.

    You mean to tell me the ouster of Russians from Afghanistan was brought about by terrorists? Interesting.
    Again, terrorism is a method. Whether your goals are noble or not has no bearing upon whether your methods are terrorism or not. The phrase "one man's freedom fighter is anothers terrorist" comes to mind.

    It's a tool, an action and can be a systematic method used by people like Bill Ayers and his merry group of terrorists and Democrat Consultants.
    HAHAHA. Ayers is a terrorist but the Contras weren't? You're a riot.

    No fabrication... there is a thread on DP illustrating your grand delusions. The best delusion was watching you self destruct on taxes in your first post. It was thanks to your level of arrogance.
    You may want to revisit the past few pages. You got PWNED and everyone knows it.

    You try so hard OC... but trying hard and failing is still failing.
    I dunno, right now it looks like you're implicitly saying that the rape and murder of little girls was less bad then palling around with Ayers. You can't be serious. Let's see you come out and STATE that what the Contras did was terrorism and way worse then Ayers. Otherwise, we have no choice but to assume you think the rape and murder of little girls was less worse. You don't want us thinking that do you? Do you?

    And there have been clarifications to the OP you obviously chose to ignore.
    Oh I see them. You got PWNED and that's what you're changing your topic. It's also irrelevant.

    So... would you vote for a candidate who had a relationship with an unrepentant terrorist? Someone who sought out the relationship with said terrorist? Someone like... Bill Ayers (as was noted on pg 3 of this thread and which you either chose to ignore or failed to read)?
    I didn't and probably wouldn't. But I know you did. So how about you explain why you voted for Bush and Reagan?

    OC... you are the one being dishonest... read the thread.

    Provide links to prove Bush (I & II) and Reagan sought out terrorists before being elected to office. With such a claim, the internet will be full of press stories about their ties to terrorism. Have at it.

    Problem is, your spin of the story is far removed from the truth. Dig far enough into anyones past and you'll almost always find some dubious connections, especially if they've been involved in politics from a more early age - and if you've a mind to cherrypick from someone's history, you can make them out as whoever you want them to be. That doesn't mean, though, that your descriptions will be an accurate portrayal of their whole character.

    One candidate only had to look into his political party machinery to find such a tool.

    Nice try.
    If a republican had sought out a terrorist and then made a lame excuse about being 8 when the terrorist activities occurred... they would have been laughed out of the country for such a juvenile reply, and they would have scorch earthed said candidate... and rightly so!

    I think the whole character of someone that seeks out a terrorist that uses bombs is beyond low. This past week reveals what that type of physical carnage terrorism wreaks, and it says nothing for the mental anguish and what it does to society. If someone struggles to understand that... they are not fit for office, and I surely wouldn't want to associate with such a dreg.

    I'm looking more at the tolerance level of private individuals who sought the assistance or a relationship with an unrepentant terrorist or terrorists. Could someone... and why would someone vote for an individual with so little character or judgment?
    A terrorist is a terrorist. Associating with one for whatever reason demonstrates support for the terrorist. Changing the goalposts now just demonstrates your dishonesty and how badly you've been pwned in this thread. EVERYONE'S seen it and now you are desperately trying to redact you OP. Total failure, zim. You really should think these things through a bit better.

    Did. I see you getting repeatedly PWNED. It's blantantly obvious you only added "before" after you got PWNED.

    And yes, I'm enjoying this very much. <--- Yes, this is a Youtube Link to the song "Schadenfreude" From the Broadway Show, Avenue Q. Enjoy.

    Provide links to prove Bush (I & II) and Reagan sought out terrorists before being elected to office. With such a claim, the internet will be full of press stories about their ties to terrorism. Have at it.
    Oh I ain't playing your dishonest game.

    Your OP explicitly stated "Would you vote for a candidate who had a relationship with an unrepentant terrorist?"

    Nothing about "before."

    And as we have elected Obama, Bush and Reagan, the answer is the American people will and do.

    Furthermore, why are you refusing to explain why you voted for candidates who had a relationship with an unrepentant terrorist?

    Let's see I wrote this:
    "I dunno, right now it looks like you're implicitly saying that the rape and murder of little girls was less bad then palling around with Ayers. You can't be serious. Let's see you come out and STATE that what the Contras did was terrorism and way worse then Ayers. Otherwise, we have no choice but to assume you think the rape and murder of little girls was less worse. You don't want us thinking that do you? Do you?"

    As you have explicitly removed that from your reply and refused to state what you believe, I have no choice but to assume you believe the rape and murder of little girls is explicitly LESS BAD to you then Obama's relationship with Ayers. Unless you explicitly clarify this, I will be forced to assume this going forward.

    Again, you are implying that Obama deliberately went looking for someone who was a terrorist. I'm certainly not aware of any evidence that this is the case - not even any evidence that Obama went looking for Ayers, never mind that he was on a terrorist-hunt at the time.

    No it does not.

    It simply means that there is a reason that the person was associating with a person who happened to be a terrorist.

    Maybe they were old friends - before the other guy became a terrorist.

    Maybe they have a mutual friend.

    Maybe they have the same accountant.

    Maybe they like the same porn.

    Maybe they have a mutual prostitute and they are comparing notes.

    Maybe they belong to the same encounter group.


    Or maybe if the authorities are looking for the terrorist - then it's your business.

    But if the terrorist is not wanted by U.S. law enforcement agencies, then maybe it is none of your business who he associates with - including a political candidate.


    I care how as candidate stands on the issues that matter to me.

    I could care less what he does with his spare time - so long as it is legal.
