Yes, I said it was my "final post" however Walrath did call off the bet and several posters asked me to stay. So, if I am making this post or if I decide to post here and there, please don't judge my integrity as if Walrath did hold me to our bet I would not be making this post.
First, I would like to say that Walrath was a "class act" when it came to Obamas victory. He did not act as I had expected (and I think it surprised many others as well). I think "we" would have assaulted him like there was no tomorrow if Romney won (because we expected Walrath would do the same). I think he should be commended for being a gentleman (unlike INFN). If I missed a post, share it with me and I will retract this statement.
Secondly, LEE is where me and Walrath began our fued (along with Blueline and Crudeoil). We had a "vote" (that he started BTW) and we voted him off the board. While Walrath was there the board was "hopping", he left and now the board is DEAD and EXTREMELY BORING. So, you think you want him to quit his babbling, but if you succeed you will realize that you will actually miss his sewage filled posts. Its great entertainment and XIN will end up the same as LEE. The back and forth between him and Less, its classic. Yes, Less is brutal but I am sorry it had me in tears.
Lastly, I would like to apologize to Walrath for what we did to him on the LEE board. The "vote", we never told him it was just a "joke", we just voted him off and he left. We didn't REALLY want him to go, but we couldn't bring ourselves to tell him that it was just a "bit". We really didn't mean anything by it, just having fun. So, to my surprise he let me off of our bet, even after what we did to him.
So, Walrath there you go. Don't expect anymore of the nonsense written above again, this is a one time deal. Take it or leave it.
"The way for Republicans to win is to offer LESS. Offer less to the rich and offer less to the religous nuts and they can win."
Are you suggesting Chris Christie pick our very own Less as VP? I like that idea. BTW, how was your victory party at Applebees? Just think, if you walked home and picked up those cans you would have recovered the tip.
"I believe that if Chris Christie had run, he would have beaten Obama, even with all those handouts."
You know it Blueline. Liberals are already shaking in their boots, he is a rising star and in four years he will be running and HE WILL win. The fact that he did not attempt any political nonsense with Hurricane Sandy shows what kind of man he is, he was worried about HIS state and HIS people nothing else.
His evacuation orders: "Get the he11 out of here!" That's what the folks in New Orleans needed to hear when that CAT 5 monster was approaching.
Actually, nobody on the LEE board ever thought he would leave. Just surprised he did and yes, the LEE board is extremely DEAD now.
PS: Glad Walrath let you out of the bet. Unfortunately, I would have told you that Obama was almost a shoe in for President. Too many people depend on him for assistance.
"I would have told you that Obama was almost a shoe in for President."
Yeah, I was pretty sure that he was going to win and that it was a bet I was almost certain to lose. But do you think I was ever going to say that out loud in front of Walrath? Not a chance in he11!
Well said, Slayer. And let me just say I'm thrilled you've reconsidered leaving.
We've covered some important and informative ground on this board over the last couple months. I, for one, have learned a ton about the important issue of the federal deficit / national debt from reading others' posts, including yours, and digging more heavily into the research.
With this new fiscal cliff issue immediately facing the country, I think there's still a lot we can learn from one another about the problem and the potential ways our country might solve it.
I'll be out of town until Monday, but I wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know I'm very glad you'll still be around when I get back next week.
In short, welcome back!
Also, what I don't think some of the complainers on the board understand is, things obviously were crazy because the election was approaching so it was political post mayhem, now that it's over we will most likely discuss "developments", things coming up not rehash everything from the past four years. The board has already quieted down since the election ended and it won't get crazy again for awhile. I blame the Liberals anyways, INFN and Walrath are the worst offenders of posting excessive threads. The conservatives pretty much show respect to the board. So, if Lidy and others want to assault Walrath, I am all for it...
