    unamerican to criticize our President during a time of war.  However, as soon as they lose power it seems to be totally ok to attempt to make our President look weak.

    I just don't understand how anyone,...ANYONE, can still vote for the GOP with their blaring hypocrisy on display every time they open their lying mouths.

    Friggin unbelievable.

    The Republican Party is the bully on the playground.

      They believe what they hear on fox news. The hear democrats are weak on terror and believe it. the only thing that trumps GOP lies is the economy, that is when democrats win, if it's weak democrats take over and if it's strong they stay in power.
      I have no doubt when this bombing didn't suceed most GOP leaders said oh shit to themselves. They probably don't want a 9-11 style attack but they know a few dead bodies would help their cause.
      They look at it as collateral damage in a political war.

        they are systematically being fed fake sugar crap and GM food so that they turn into dummies who believe fairy tales on fake news.

          But they aren't political junkies. They don't spend their lives reading DK or poring through a dozen blogs a day.

          They work, they take care of their kids, they worry about mortgage payments and the price of gas.  They watch the MSM for news, and the MSM is now doing the work of the corporations, with no real regard for bringing out facts.

          And we, meanwhile, call the majority of ordinary Americans who, in the face of the most vicious propaganda campaign in American history,  elected a black Democrat president, stupid.... and can't be bothered to do the work needed to refute Republican propaganda.  How many of us send around emails pointing out that in both WWI and II, Democrats were the CICs? How many of us write letters to our daily papers comparing the war records of people like JFK or John Kerry to the "military service" of Bush II or the draft deferments of Cheney?

          Far too many of us are "above" that. We sneer and denigrate and laugh at the TBer's and Beckophiles, who represent a very small number of Americans. And the rest of our countrymen? Too "stupid" to bother with. Too stupid to talk with, or provide facts to. We're too busy working for comment recs on this website to bother with that.  

          Which reveals our stupidity, not theirs.

    •  They refuse to accept that we are Americans too (3+ / 0-)

      "we" being the other 70% of the country.

      Even independents and libertarians are just occasionally useful persons to their thinking.

      ...out the blatant hypocrisy to ordinary citizens.

      In fact, the GOP smears, implies and outright lies about Democrats constantly, and instead of calmly--and publically-- stating facts in rebuttal, we Twitter "how can anyone believe such crap?" and write scathing comments on websites like this.

      So those Americans who, unlike most of us, aren't political junkies, hear only the lies and hearing no denials from us, start wondering if the lies are true.

      The GOP counts on this. When it comes to propaganda, they are very, very unethical....and they can afford to hire the most plausible liars in the business.
