  •  Folks, don't tell me you are surprised ... I've (0+ / 0-)

    been predicting this for quite some time now.    Only trying to warn you, pups who have been baying about Hillary's negatives, while praising Obama's supreme electability.  

    In the hands of republicans,  Obama's negatives are at least as severe.  Not fair, maybe, but all's fair in love, war, and politics.  Hillary HAS been vetted, and Obama's now about to enter the grinder.

    •  Horse Shit! Mr. Rogers! (0+ / 0-)

      I understand the point you are making here.  Rethugs will do what it takes.

      But this is beyond the pale (see my comment below).

      If this is all they have against Obama!

      I'm sorry but this has made me angry beyond words.

        about the American political psyche.    Maybe this is why I've been considered a troll among the Obama supporters here.  They think I'm generating these ideas out of whole cloth, rather than from a lifetime of observation.  

        One of my favorite humorous ones was a campaign in Florida in which the republican said about the democrat:

        "My opponent is a known thespian."  

        Really stupid, and really mild.  But it was acttually said, and it actually worked.   Gives you some idea of the mental capacity of Florida voters.   :)

        Stuff like this is American as apple pie.    The good news is that bad stuff is eventually forgotten if it's brought out early.  That's why we want to understand all the negative angles ourselves, early on, so we can counter them.

        But stating them clearly risks getting the messenger killed, labelled a troll, or just generally hated.   So ... anyway, I'm confident the message will indeed sink in as we go along.

          I am not naive about the American political psyche.  As I said, I understand the point you are making.

          But this is personal to me and, perhaps, I am lashing out at the wrong target.  When I said below that I could not express what I felt reading the original source, please take me at my word.

          I am still so angry from the originally quoted article that I am having trouble expressing myself.

          OTOH, I should remember that 51% of our fellow country men are below average.

          I am only a reluctant Obama supporter.  But if this is the kind of attacks he faces, I could become passionate very quickly.
