    Nope, they were SOUTHERNERS, Many Dems, many GOP, almost 100% from the GOP base today

    Weird how CONservatives were for Bush';s war of choice AND every other incorrect thing in history they were either for (Iraq, bigotry) or against (equal rights, fairness)...

    Democrats who claim it was a Southern thing tend ignore the support George Wallace received in the North.

    Republicans believe so deeply in their own victimhood that the world only makes sense in the reflection of a fun house mirror.

    Atwater was Atwater. Just as, for example, Anthony Weiner is Anthony Weiner. I for one do not believe that all Dems like to expose themselves over the internet, but I would be just as justified in drawing that conclusion as you are in drawing yours.

    Why not? You can run from your history or accept it, but you can't deny it.

    I didn't, actually. I'm just following the logic of my questioner.

    You're welcome to go back to George Bush, as usual, but he has not been President for several years now. You're stuck with the Obama Administration.

    Not in this regard.

    Not at all the same. Again, I'll happily link information on the differences.
