  •  They talk about radical Islam... (6+ / 0-)

    Every day, you hear wingnuts raving about "radical Islam". Using that term implies that there is a non-radical Islam, or else it would be redundant. But the right refers to EVERY Muslim as a "radical Muslim", which means that when they say "radical Islam", they simply mean "Islam."

    This indicates that they have thought about their message, they are on an all out assault against all Muslims, but realize that it would sound bad, so they put on a pretense that they are only against "radical Islam".

      I noticed that a long time ago.  It is as absurd as a thing called the war on terror.

      very interesting to note  how he does an about face from his positions on the campaign trail. Yes, he is a good businessman, this is how he got rich, saying one thing and doing another. When you take over a company, you don't tell the people you will lay them off, you just hit them with pink slips and say "sorry", but making money is more important than saving your job.
      Romney is scared of the ad the Gingrich PAC is set to run in S.C. and he is already trying to spin it. To hear Willard speak, he built Staples from the ground up, he didn't and much of the success of Staples (and jobs created) happened long after Willard was gone, and running for political office. His response during the debate that "sometimes companies fail, and you have to close the company and  lay people off", while damning enough, his attitude in saying it was even worse, that message was delivered in a matter of fact tone, not with any remorse at all. He simply doesn't realize that those were real people with real families who depended on their jobs in order to survive. In my opinion, his reason for  laying those people off was because they got in the way of Willard and Bain making lots and lots of money. I don't think that attitude will sit well with the 99%, many of whom lost their jobs in the past few years because "sometimes you just have to close companies down and lay people off".

      BTW, Willards idea of fighting for the middle class is to allow them to keep any interest earned on their savings accounts. This idiot is so out of touch, does he realize how difficult it is for people in the middle class, people in the middle class with jobs, to save any money today, and if they do manage to save a little, the interest earned on that small amount they can save amounts to practically nothing at today's interest rates. Rich people like Romney just don't understand how the rest of us live, and the dirty little secret is they don't really care. That is where Willard is so different from this President and those are the differences that will be on display front and center during the campaign. Daddy Bush lost his election for being out of touch with "the little people", and Romney is even more out of touch, he simply doesn't get it at all.
