    I know what I meant. You don't. You're assuming my position based your belief about my history, then accuse me of "assuming." That's great, super non-partisan of you. It's too hard to argue against something that isn't what you want it to be, so you assign your own meanings.

    You have done this to me before, so I will let YOUR history speak for itself also.

    Classic. The GOP slowly sliding into an irrelevant regional party based upon hate. May God have mercy on their souls.
    The GOP?

    Perhaps the lies from Raw Story is the real issue. Powerful GOP strategist? Powerful?

    List of "groups" Burkman lobbies for:

    Sunlight Foundation Reporting Group: Lobbying Tracker - Lobbyist: Burkman, Jack

    Radicals are so absurd at times. No wonder you can't govern, even your lies are easy to destroy.

    Another Liberal Porn News feed. When Dems say stupid stuff, the news says "this guys said stupid stuff. When a GOP says stupid stuff, the news says " this GOP guy said stupid stuff".

    The man is an idiot. The news for you is that he's GOP. Big wup...

    No republican group to my knowledge has came out in support of this.

    No right leaning news groups had focused on this story from my quick search last night.

    What you have is one idiot coming out and being an idiot...which frankly, sans illegal action privately or facist action through the law, can't really be definitively stopped...and a bunch of primarily left leaning and/or sports sites picking up the story and pushing it.

    It's "visible" crap because hyper partisans like Threegoofs and Top Cat grab their marching orders from liberal entities and start screaming to high heaven about the "GOP" due to a lone crazy whose credentials are over inflated by said liberal entity. And, not surprisingly, you of course blame the Republicans for that.
    Well there's nothing stopping any Republicans from stepping up and calling him out on it, is there? No reason there cant be a press conference or media opportunity? C'mon they do that stuff all the time. The fact that this minor issue and lobbyist made national news is proof that they could get visibility IMO.

    So your suggestion is anytime a wingnut makes a stupid statement and the part of the media slanted away from that wingnut makes a big deal of it, people need to start calling press conference to denounce it?

    Sorry, but that's a ridiculous standard and one I'd absolutely not expect of the democrats.

    If some jackass lobbyist suggested after a school shooting he was going to put forward a bill to ban any firearm other than handguns and Fox News made some giant stink about it I wouldn't be expecting Democratic politicians to come out going "We do not support banning all firearms larger than a handgun".

    I think it's ridiculous to expect politicians to have to come out and do a press conference saying "No, we don't plan to support this jackass bloggers attempt to ban gays from the NFL".

    The fact that this minor issue and lobbyist made national news is proof that they could get visibility IMO.
    The fact that htis minor issue and lobbyist made "national" news is proof that publicity stunts can easily succeed when you hit hot button controversial issues that the opposite side will salivate to pickup in order of getting hyper partisans to run with it as a means of smearing an entire side.

    OK. What about the giant GOP outcry about the AZ issue? Or the KS issue? Or the IN issue? Its a pattern. And there wont be a big outcry until after November. After the wingnuts vote them in.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    *Someone* should denounce it *If they are concerned that it reflects badly on the party (or whatever their special interest is).*

    Republicans dont have to do anything....but it doesnt change the fact that the visibility this got reflects back on the party. Just like the stupidity of the 'legitimate rape' comment.

    You can 'not like it' all you want...I'm just pointing out reality here.

    I believe the point is, the only real connection this bit player lobbyist has to the GOP is the attempt by the lefty media to pretend there is one. Why legitimize it with a public denouncement?

    As to those calling for a response, very few care what those already in the left's corral think.

    that is kinda the problem, even after Aiken babbled on about the legitmate rape thingy, the Tea Party ooops Republicans still spent about a million bucks on his election.

    Re: Powerful GOP lobbyist drafts bill to ban gay athletes from playing in the NFL

    And my current posts are reflecting that, in which I express my concern for the "vast majority" of GOP voters.
    Do I have to do this in every post?
    Whether anyone takes them as sincere is immaterial to me.
    As I mentioned about the three legislators who now regret what they did in Arizona, including one who appeared on MSNBC.
    It would be easy to make fun of him for being a hypocrite, but I didn't.

    It is clear that some cons do not want these things brought up, period, and will always accuse hackery, no matter how I reference them.
    That is also immaterial to me.

    I will keep in mind that I am being held to a different standard, a compliment in itself,
    when I criticize or just plain point out what the GOP is doing.
    Lord knows this is only for the Koch billions to be doing .
