KEYWORDS:
I won't mention all of Obama's awful positions, like supporting partial birth abortion, but one contradistinction from Romney/Ryan is that he raided Medicare to the tune of $719 billion. This was done to pay for his health care bill. Imagine being a Republican candidate and on the right side of Medicare with the senior voters. Oh, how sweet it is.

Romney on the Rise

The Rom/Obam contradistinction
Will lead to the latter’s extinction
Despite Mr. Akin
Who has our hearts breakin’
With his selfish display of rat-fink-tion

My conservative republican neighbor came over with the title written down on paper so she could tell me about it. LOL She met a TEA party lady at the gym who told her and was all excited.

I read D’Sousa’s book, so I know the history and colonial mindset theme. I’m interested to see how he projects the future.

Contradistinction

I asked our resident scholar about this contradistinction word and he explained it:

A skunk is kinda pretty looking varmint from a distance but but they are contra too if they wanna be and the stinction can be fierce so much that normal folks “dis” (short for distance) you unless you splash on lots of Blue Waltz to take the edge off.

There ya go...contradistinction...just like boiled okra...don't look too bad but for the life of me I can't stand deliberately swallowing something I'd normally cough up...worse than swallowing a fresh squeezed toad.

What is wrong with the ‘rat party-?
They must live in confusion
What they “see” as reality
Is obviously a delusion

Despite the contradistinction
Between policies in this race
They desperately cling to Obama-
They worship his words and face

Their baseless hero worship
Is certainly one for the books-
It reminds me of Carter or Nixon
With their idiots and crooks

A+++ Excellent! I think O will go down in the history books as worse than Carter, and that is saying something.

We have a contradistinction in this house with the new dog compared to our former collies. They did not mind the cat and only barked when necessary or while playing together. This new dog consistently tries to attack the cat and barks much more than any dog should. I miss my old dogs. This one is not a good replacement but he needed us. Now I have to chase his big bohunkus off the leather couch again for the THIRD TIME TODAY! There’s a lot to be said for raising a dog yourself and not having to deal with this nonsense that goes along with rescues.

Romney made a birther joke. I'm surprised it didn't get more reaction on the freep.

Here’s how you can tell who said what. Does the stupidity make you pity him? Then it’s Michael Scott. Does it make you want to blast him for being such an idiot? Then it’s obviously bidenblather. That one was bidenblather.

Robert California ruined it. Have you seen Longmire yet? It’s not a funny show, but it’s good.

Real homework here. This video presents a contradistinction of what the media claims the black community wants.

Yes, California was a bad character. Then Nellie came along. Even worse.

Haven’t seen “Longmire.”

If they’re gonna do stuntcasting for the final season, and you know they will, they should bring David Tennant on.
