    Perhaps we'll never know the answer to that question. The safe bet is of course the lies made a difference in people's opinion.

    It's happened lots of times before and will definitely happen again.
    And why is it a safe bet? I see you making this assumption but not giving a good basis as to why you make this assumption.

    The national security of the United States can never be left in the hands of liberals.

    So it happening at least once in the past means that we can cast doubt any all public opinion forever and ever on that basis alone?

    No, I think when he complained about "platitudes" he double downed with his own learned misinformation, hence his departure from the thread when challenged.

    It looks like the popularity of the movement might be waning. I wonder if this is a short term blip or a longer term trend.
    RIIIIGHT. Because CNN is TOTALLY the most trustworthy group of so called journalists.

    I'm glad you asked. I looked at the data and therefore had all of the evidence I needed to make the claim. The data is readily available to anyone that wants to view it. If they want to take issue with my claim, I am happy to address the issue or rescind the claim as need be.

    On the other hand, I have little patience for people who put no thought or effort into the discussion beyond linking to someone else's work, and who then assume that it is fact unless I or someone else expends actual thought and energy to prove it wrong. In that case, I could really care less whether such a person believes me or not - if they want to remain ignorant, so be it.

    [just to clarify, I don't mean point fingers at specific people as if they approach every thread in this manner. I should have instead referred to "instances in which people..."]

    It's also being reported by the Christian Science Monitor, how's that?

    Thanks for that info Mac. You have to be proud reading about his resistance as a POW. My hat is off to his service and his courage.

    Having said that, he was totally out of his league running for VP and was ill prepared by the Perot team. He came off looking old and rather uninformed and without the quick and easy answers that we come to expect of politicians in that position. That was not enitrely his fault but it is the image that emerged.

    If a picture says a thousand words, that photo in the first link with the dude in the tri-cornered hat sporting a tea bag hanging down in front has to say at least twice that.

    As someone earlier in this thread said, in more or less words, that you can't believe what any poll says unless you know the specific question asked and to whom the question was asked. Even I could say I was a liberal democrat just to partake in a poll that says I strongly dislike the way Obama is running the country.
    If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.
