    I remember moments after Obama won the election in 2008 standing at the victory party in my city and telling people that the shit was about to hit the fan.

    Too many of the racist knuckle draggers on the right, their worst nightmare had just occurred.

    There is way too many people that sugar-coat the underlying reason for the right's blind hatred of anything from the White House, knee-jerk lies, and willingness to sink the government.

    It's impossible to reason with people that are fundamentally wired to hate.

      but the reason the conservative leaders hate the ACA is because the law has a limit on how much stealing the insurance companies can do. They hate being told that the gravy train is over. But that's not what they are saying, is it? So, they look like death panel racist bigots. Not wanting to admit the truth, that they hate affordable health care, is the problem with their message.

      Why can't they admit the truth?

      •  That's a good question. (0+ / 0-)

        Why can't they admit the truth?  Do you think it's because they are embarrassed to say that the insurance companies should be able to gouge us? But, they have their base convinced that we should all be gouged continually if it allows rich people to get richer (because, after all, I may be one of them someday....).  They shouldn't be embarrassed by that anymore.  There are no real Christians on the right anymore.... (or any other religion that subscribes to the Golden Rule.)  (Maybe they believe in the masochist version of the Golden Rule?) (Here I am arguing with myself again....)   :-)
