Conversation with a D about Obama

I was wondering that, too. Can't be America. But then again, Civet's really good at tapping his ruby slippers together, thinking really hard, and repeating something over and over again until he believes it's true.

Conversation with a D about Obama

Well Tuesday night the numbers were for sure reaching 80%, I'd think without hate radio and TV they'd for sure be at 90. I don't understand what you two are on about web sites, do you need a link or something? Biden didn't remember the address for recovery.org, is that supposed to be news or something?

Dear cowgal and expat, I'm going to let you in on a secret. There are about 33 T of credit default swaps out there, the GDP of the world is around 60 T. I don't worry about web addresses. Time for you all to switch chanels.

I'd do some looking around before saying anything about Louisiana's unemployment, might be more field mice or a train to Vegas.

Switch channels? Why -- because you're uncomfortable with what we have on this one? Do you think that as a liberal you have the right to dictate what we pay attention to? Oh, yeah...you do. But I'll get to that in a moment.

Biden keeps sticking his foot in his mouth again and again. Yeah, so maybe he gaffed "number" instead of "address." But it's REAL tough to remember "recovery.gov" when it's your own website, isn't it? But your response is typical of the Dems when one of them gets caught being stupid in public -- pretend it didn't happen and sweep it under the rug.

I still don't know where you're coming up with the 80 or 90 percent numbers. Don't confuse ratings with approval. I've seen dozens of people standing around a car wreck, but that doesn't mean they approve of it.

Like any good liberal, I know you like polls so I checked Gallup. As of the 24th, Obama's approval rating was only 59 percent (lower than Bush at this point of his presidency, by the way). That's a 3 percent slip among Democrats, an 8 percent slip among Independents, and staying even among Republicans (which only had him at 27 percent).

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. No matter how hard you click those ruby slippers, that doesn't add up to 80 percent.

Oh, and once again you've tipped your hand with the radio comment. I'm sure you'd love to have only flattering voices in the media singing the Dear Leader's praises, but in America we have this thing called "free speech."

As I said before, liberals are all about silencing political opposition, and you've just illustrated my point perfectly by showcasing your intolerance of dissent. Tyrant.

That's a poll of CNN viewers taken after they watched the smoke & mirrors presentation. It doesn't change this:

I'm sure if the oposition were silenced you could boost those numbers. Hitler and Stalin did just that. The idea isn't original Civet, it's just dangerous,sad and frightening. Label anyone who disagrees with you as haters, label their arguments as hate speech and pretty soon you can silence anyone you want...in any way you want. After all. Their hateful people. We're better off without them anyway. Arent we? You accuse me of being a Nazi yet you continuously take page after page from the books of Tyrants and thugs. In another thread you said you'd be the one in the Socialist T shirt. Would that be National Socialist?

Sorry, didn't mean to offend. I listen to Shawn and Rush every day while driving, the second station on the same button is liberal hate. Don't know any other name for it, bunch of people shouting nasty stuff. Of late I just laugh and laugh. I also watch for fibs, which come probably every paragraph or so.

Watch the video, I'm kind of confused about Socialism, Comunism, and a lot of other things. It's at about 3:30 but the rest of the video is well worth watching, very powerfull at the end.

Conversation with a D about Obama

Why is it that among liberals, questioning and opposing their rationale is immediately interpreted as hate?? I don't listen to talk radio, so don't know what is being said by Rush & Hannity, however I do catch O'Reilly, Hannity and Greta on TV from time to time. I have never heard a racist or hateful comment out of any of them, critical - yes, hateful - NO! If you don't like Sean and Rush why do you even listen to it?

So in your perfect world you would have everyone quietly agree with the liberal propaganda. How nice!

In my world we call a spade a spade. If it looks and smells like a piggy - it is a piggy!

I'm not surprised that you're confused about socialism. You keep mistaking a democracy for socialism.

You know Civet I must admit. We will never agree on much but the weather but your posts lately have been intelligent, respectful and articulate. I may have to change my tactics in dealing with you and start taking you seriously. It will be much harder and probably less entertaining for me but the improvment is noted. This Civet is much more challenging intellectualy. Still a liberal neener! but we shall see.

Conversation with a D about Obama

Cowgal by hate I was simply reffering to all the yelling and screaming I hear. To be fair it's done by both sides of the political spectrum, (on the radio) some times when I switch the radio back and forth during commercials I can't tell which station it's on for a while.

But yes, political hate is real, and sometimes deadly, remember the second deadliest terrorist attack in US history was perpetrated by Americans. Made the weathermen and black panthers seem quaint. More recently This week Joe the plumber at the Conservative Political Action Conference talked of shooting members of congress while former UN ambasador Bolton fantasized about Chicago (gee I wonder who comes from there) being wiped out by a terrorist attack to lots of laughter from the crowd. Recently Sean Hannity asks what kind of revolution people preffer, http://forums.hannity.com/showthread.php?t=1326121 Rush talked of taking a baseball bat to someone, I forget who.

All this stuff seems funny except when you think about that guy that shot those people in a church last July. He got his ideas from right wing ranters. http://www.knoxnews.com/news/2008/Jul/28/church-shooting-police-find-man...

So ya, even though I find the radio and TV ranters laughable, they spew hate, don't know what else you call the kind of talk that leads the weak minded to commit violence. Remember also that much of what is said is simply untrue, not just field mice and trains, but misquotes of people they don't like, or misstating what a paticular law or bill says. Most of my freinds who are extreme righties are very nice people, kind, helpfull, honest, hardworking, and unsophisticated. They don't know how to listen or watch critically. They have only one source of information.

Bunny I am two people posting from the same account. Wind howling at 60mph today, temps dropping towards freezing, ok as long as you kept moving.

Back on topic ..Remember? It was about people waking up to how horrible Obama is and having buyers remorse... I wen't to the Gallup web site to see the poll Expatriate was talking about, when low and behold I find the opposite, Republicans heart Obama I'll start a new post.
