My friend Sandy, who is not only a Repulican, but worse, a Birther Republican
She is a good friend of mine. We cover for each other at work. She cares for me, we talk about work and friendship, and yet,
She is a birther Republican. She really believes that crap about Obama's birth certificate.
I asked her ok let Romney release his tax returns for the last ten years and she went kind of, oh , tender on me. Like I'm just so not quite right in the head or something.
She claims that she hates Obama because the ACA will ruin her and her husband's small business. Because the healthcare insurance company they deal with has raised their rates and blamed the ACA.
I said to her "you do realize that in 2014 when the rest of Obamacare takes effect, that because of the parts of that law, they will have to give that money back to you"? No she doesn't not at all. She doesn't believe that at all. And no way could I convince her of that. In spite of quoting parts of it to her. She accused me of not reading it all. Well, which of course I haven't. At least not all parts of it.
But she hasn't read ANY of the ACA, so we're even haha. That's the trouble with normal people trying to argue politics. You can't possibly keep up. You can only have a gut feeling about your interests.
So this conversation went on and on and I asked her, do you really want to vote for the guys who want to gut SS and Medicare, and then she got all tender again and said oh Rose, those are already really gone, and I said yeah because YOUR guys gutted them (I was really pretty pissed off by this time) and told her that no, they're NOT gone unless YOUR guys want them to be (which they do).
This is what we're up against. I hope you guys can help me with the Sandys of the world. She's going to vote for RMoney otherwise. And I hate that because she really is my friend. Ucccchhhh.
And this creepy, not mad, very sweet recitation of Republican talking points. And this is a person I think I know. Maybe not. Like I said, this is what we're up against.
And of course you do realize me asking for Romney to release tax returns got me exactly nowhere. She's convinced he paid a lot of taxes. Well of course she is. Haha.
