    about comparing something to the Nazis as a substitute for a compelling argument, I would offer that expecting Republicans to field candidates that are not batshit insane at this point in our nation's history is like expecting the German people to object to Hitler being named Chancellor of Germany in 1933.  It seemed like a good idea at the time, but in retrospect, not so good.

      Why are folks eating this crap up?..... have we dumbed down the population so much that people believe the stupid, hateful things these mugs spout?   It amazes me when I look at some of these polls...... wth are people thinking, or not thinking, I guess more to the point....

        it is not surprising that they don't think ACA is a good thing for all of us. They don't know the facts:

        Who has 100% job security?

        Any of us could need to get their own coverage at any time and now any of us CAN get covered, and get a tax break to lower the premium.

        Thanks Democrats! My Obamacare is permanent coverage no one can take away - and saving $3,000 is nice too

        rhetoric tat emotionally inflames.

        They aren't taught to put a premium on truth.  They are taught that being entertained by "clever" hate and nastiness is "intelligent".

        And, of course, it is so extreme that it must be true: no one would joke or lie to that degree . . .
