    OMG, they challenge the POV that Obama can do no wrong that you seem to be spewing here, Including the repeated lie about liberals not voting.

    •  "POV that Obama can do no wrong"? (0+ / 0-)

      Is that what I'm doing? Where?
      There are several places that I differ with the President and the Administration, on foreign policy, on drug policy et cetera. That's not what I'm talking about here. You jump to a conclusion that has no basis, you might want to look a little more carefully before you leap again.
      And that "lie" is proven fact, Look it up. I already did and posted it. Many fewer voters than 2 years before, much higher percentage of conservatives, so, what's the difference? Many less liberal voters turned out. It's simple arithmetic, even the math challenged should be able to handle it.

      If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!

      •  YOU need to stop repeating the lie (5+ / 0-)

        about liberals not voting with Meteor Blades. Stop repeating it.

        I strongly suggest you read his comment and look at the links very carefully

        We have the statistics. The falsehood...

        •  This must be the fifth time in this string that (0+ / 0-)

          Meteor Blades has been used as a threat. An implicit STFU or we'll sic the authorities on you.
          I read that comment, and yes, some liberals did vote, me among them, but, less people voted in 2010 than in 2008.  And in the group that did vote in 2010, the percentage of voters was heavily skewed toward the Conservatives.
          THAT MEANS that less liberal voters turned out. Call them Young voters or Black voters or whatever, the bottom line is that Conservative voters turned out and Liberal ones didn't so we ended up with a conservative domination of Congress.
          Blades argument is based on comparing 2006 to 2010 (because they are both off year elections) and still, Liberals and Moderates were 10% down and Conservatives were 10% up.
          2006 was before OFA lit up a lot of young voters. That created a bunch of new, liberal voters. A more accurate read would be to compare 2008 to 2010. Those young voters came out to put Obama in office. Many of those voters did not turn out in the midterm.
          My point still stands, Liberal voters, Obama supporters did not turn out in as high numbers in 2010 as they did just 2 years earlier, if they had, we'd have been spared the Boner disaster.
          I have much respect for Mr Blades, but far from debunking this fact, his own numbers prove my point.
