GQjock saidDo think Obama voters have similar views of the other candidate?
While I am sure there are fringe wackos in the Obama camp, it's also true that' the nature of the "wackiness" is far different. Listen to some of these people...."...he's got the right bloodline..." (to be a terrorist) "....from age 1 to 6 he was raised as a muslim...(terrorist)...." "...I know that Acorn propagated low income loans to people in the Chicago area four years ago..." (but when asked when she heard first of Acorn, she admitted "...today...." And on, and on.
You'll note a common thread. Xenophobia, racism, judgment on the basis of opinion, while portraying such opinion as fact, misintormation, distortion, and, the ultimate refuge of the far right...."...get a job!..." or "...go to Russia...."
While there are extremists and wack jobs on all sides of the political spectrum, it's also true that the wackiness of the right is based upon racism, prejudice, celebration of ignorance. I don't see much a difference between these people and the Susan-Sarandon-look-alike racist red neck video posted on another thread.
These people make me ashamed to be an American.
But as I posted on another thread, they'd be out in droves if Hilary Clinton was the Democratic candidate, perhaps to a greater degree. I've witnessed the same sort of mindless, enraged hatred towards the Clintons in middle America in my research trips to Kansas, Nebraska and Oklahoma. In fact, the hatred was so blinding, it was breath-taking.
I have already voted Absentee. I am hoping that the polls will continue favorably and will be reflected by the election results. We have had to deal with sick wack jobs like these people controlling the country and making excuses for the present administration for 8 years. Perhaps our time has come finally.....
