    What you have to keep foremost in your mind..is that a very small percentage of republicans are the rich..if they are only 2% of the country they cant be 50% of all republican supporters....the lionshare of republicans are not rich, most of them make under 100k a year. These same republicans are the ones that in the future are going to need SOCIAL SECURITY and MEDICARE the most...not the john boehners and Paul Ryans and Mitt Romneys...that they are supporting who if they could get away with it would end the programs...they know they cant do that so ryan did an end run and tried to kill it by attrition with vouchers and huge copays.
    On another forum when obama was running against McCain in 2008 there was a guy the most vocal....screaming that Medicare, Social Security was unconstitutional along with medicaid...then we find out he was on disability social security and medicare at 41...
    Many republicans are supporting republicans all the wrong reasons...evangelicals probably have the best reason of all to support them...but many others are just slashing their own throats...
    Let me give you my perspective, which you entitlement loving people don't want to talk about is the cost. Obama increased the national debt by 6 trillion in just 4 yrs and under Obama he will increase it by over a trillion each year for the next 4 yrs. Any politician that promises more free stuff gets elected, and because of that we have now become an entitlement society, that is driving up our debt and that is all OK with you as long as you don't have to pay for it.

    Bobby “I mock volcano monitoring and genetic research” Jindal is having a come-to-jebus moment about anti-intellectual demagoguery?

    One way they could stop being the 'stupid party' is for guys like Jindal to not advocate the teaching of Creationism in public schools. That would be a start.

Our media made a lot of hey over "legitimate rape" and paid scant attention to the riot that didn't kill 4 people in Benghazi in the last weeks of the election.

    This isn't about the idiot statements - its about how they are reported by the leftists in charge of the lame stream media.
    Obama's entire quote was exactly right. What are you talking about? Unless, of course, you think you built the interstate you drive on.

    And Romney's 47% comment was just as spot on and just as irritating to those it was aimed at. I risked my home for my business - O'failure didn't do that for me. I DID it not him.

    Obama was dead wrong in his quote, "you did not build that" oh yes we did, the American people did, through taxation. So yes we did build that.
