Funny how people can look at a situation and come away with entirely different views. You see the Republicans as the victims and I see them as the aggressors in spewing hate and dividing the nation.<quoted text> It is a little more succinct. Honey and vinegar saying is more direct. When Dems won in 2008...it was massive the saying...YOU LOST, GET OVER IT". The President himself shut out the Repub party with basically those same words. Vinegar was and still is the main by product of the progressive Dems. Push guilt. Push the hate angle. But whatever we do is honey. Listening to Gibbs and others spew their venom on others after that election galvanized many people together. Repubs deserved the trouncing they got. Or the party did. But the citizens of America did not deserve the pure hate venom that spewed from the mouths of progressives. Especially as their wealth was declining and the same party was not showing any concern. In a few months from taking power, all of the good will was used up. In a few weeks this will be over. And it did not have to be. You see win or lose I will never trust a progressive again unless I am "paid" and it is written on a contract. And there are tens of millions of others who feel the same way. And they are voters. And they are voting in 2012 in a different direction then they voted in 2008. So if the President wins, it will be much closer. If he loses it may be a rout. A big one. Why they acted that way I don't know. But crapping on people who pay the freight is not smart. But the party must come first. always the party and the movement. No matter who suffers.
I used to be a non-voter. Not even an independent. Raised as a Jehovah's Witness, they do not involve themselves in worldly affairs and do not vote. How did I come to vote and involve myself in politics? The hypocrisy I witnessed with the Republican party and their contract with America. Their so-called values and morals and how they went after Clinton, even though the nation was doing well. They had nothing else to offer or attack but his character. His opponents were just as bad or worst (Hyde and Gingrich) then Clinton and the farce of his impeachment was too much. I got involved and started voting. I begin to notice who was nasty, starting with gingrich's mother saying he called the president's wife, Hillary, a bitch. Politics has been in the gutter every since. The coulters, limbaughs, malkins, O'Reilly's, etc., have made it worst.
You don't come across as nice or decent people. You're always angry and always attacking someone whether racially or sexually. That's what I see and it's not a pretty picture and it most certainly won't draw people to your party unless their predisposed to being hateful and nasty.
