I was watching this really good but scary video about the 9/12 march in Washington and it hit me, what the people here were talking about. They want their country back. Don’t they realize that we have elections and that is when you get your country back? We all had the chance to vote. You lost. Get over it. Go out and find a candidate that you think can win and do what you want, but stop belly aching. Stop lying about things. Find out the truth for yourselves. Read some history. Do some research and that doesn’t mean turn on Glenn Beck.
This video nails so many points about the level of delusional thinking.
And who do you want your country back from? Who has taken it? The Democratic Party that won the elections? The government? Obama in particular? Where were you all the last 8 years? Were you happy with Bush inflating the deficit to historic highs with an unnecessary war and tax cuts for the wealthy?
The scariest thing I have heard is that despite everything that has happened and everything that has come out in the past few days,
ninety-one percent (91%) of Republicans have a favorable view of Palin, including 65% who say their view is Very Favorable. Only eight percent (8%) have an unfavorable view of her, including three percent (3%) Very Unfavorable.
When asked to choose among some of the GOP’s top names for their choice for the party’s 2012 presidential nominee, 64% say Palin.
Now that it is over, we hear that she didn’t know that Africa is a continent not a country. Or which countries are in Nafta. Her ignorance expands rather than contracts the more we “know” her, and her behavior during this election was anything but presidential. Is this the best the GOP can come up with? I know that it is early for the prognostications but are they blind? Did Fox News actually succeed in making people believe Palin was the victim of slander and that she is really capable of leading this country? If so, they are brilliant. I suspect it is more that the public is really stupid. But then Fox News depends on that being true. Heaven help us all.
