    But what is wrong with calling Democrats low information voters anyway, even if Limbaugh did use the expression first? We know Democrats are not very bright and tend to ignore facts which interfere with their feelings. That tends towards having little information, or knowledge, and why they use ad hom attacks on anyone who disagrees with them.

    Calling them 'low information voters', rather than just 'stupid', is being quite kind, and you should appreciate it.
    The only people who call dems "low information voters" are a bunch of racists cons (former Dixiecrats). Nobody gives a crap about their opinions, so they resort to insults to save face. As they continue to lose elections, I expect the petty insults to increase. It's hilarious to see them embarrass themselves into oblivion.

    Where did you get your "facts" from that says, "The only people who call dems "low information voters" are a bunch of racists cons (former Dixiecrats)."?

    Nope....demographics show just the opposite. Republicans rely on the uneducated that will vote against their own interests as long as the Republicans push their right-wing social agenda. Look at the areas where the Republican party is strong. It tends to be the more rural areas where education is not a top priority.

    Re: Obama Address the Nation on the government shutdown.

    You're going by area rather than vote-by-vote. Check the exit polls, you'll see. Actually, I'll get the 2012 ones for you:

    Presidential Race - 2012 Election Center - Elections & Politics from CNN.com

    College Graduates were actually the only group Romney won, 51-47. Obama won dropouts, high school graduates, and postgraduates.

    I don't really chalk this up to education, so much as college graduates without postgraduate degrees are the most likely to be big money earners in the private sector, and so their self-interest is to ally with whichever party looks out for the taxpayers.

    Re: Obama Address the Nation on the government shutdown.

    Um, when will the mainstream media condemn Obama for spending even more to close open-air visitor areas simply to make this shutdown as painful as possible???

    Obama owns this shut down, plain and simple. To argue otherwise is an exercise is pure stupidity.

    Notice that Bill Clinton didn't feel the need to resort to such theater during the shutdown of 1996. Obama is quite the idiot.

    Yeah I don't really recall any sitting president besides Obama attempt to blame his failures on political opposition at every opportunity...
