    He's hinting at the bizarre conspiracy theories of the left that started coming out right about then-when the left decided to make the wars political when they previously hadn't been.

    Truthers were just one strain of left wing crazy back then.

    Well, as we all know, if there is anybody who thinks the government would conduct a false flag operation and attack the American people, it's definitely liberals. It's not conservatives who think the government is out to get them. Yep! Truthers are liberals. Do you come with this stuff on the fly or do you just make it up like your made up claim that Iraq was peaceful in 2008?

    More of your half truths Grant? I guess Conservatives don't always have to tell the truth:

    Opinion polls about 9/11 conspiracy theories - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Rasmussen Reports published the results of their poll May 4, 2007. According to their press release, "Overall, 22% of all voters believe the President knew about the attacks in advance. A slightly larger number, 29%, believe the CIA knew about the attacks in advance. White Americans are less likely than others to believe that either the 100President or the CIA knew about the attacks in advance. Young Americans are more likely than their elders to believe the President or the CIA knew about the attacks in advance.", "Thirty-five percent (35%) of Democrats believe he did know, 39% say he did not know, and 26% are not sure." and "Republicans reject that view and, by a 7-to-1 margin, say the President did not know in advance about the attacks. Among those not affiliated with either major party, 18% believe the President knew and 57% take the opposite view."[18]
    Democrats and Republicans differ on conspiracy theory beliefs - Public Policy Polling

    The poll finds 28% of voters believe that a secretive power elite with a globalist agenda is conspiring to eventually rule the world through an authoritarian world government, or New World Order. 34% of Republicans and 35% of independents believe in the New World Order threat compared to just 15% of Democrats.
    Who carried out the 9/11 attacks according to those who believe there is such a thing as a NWO? Well, let's see...

    http://911nwo.com/

    The official cover story for 9/11 is a hoax, a myth, a fraud, and a lie that has been disproven many times over. In fact it is a deliberate insult to our intelligence.

    9/11 was planned and carried out by top level military and intelligence agencies in the U.S., Britain, and Israel, with the complicity of various media outlets (Fox and CNN particularly) on behalf of the world’s financial power structure.
    http://www.freecriticalthinking.org/...ew-world-order

    Prof. John McMurtry provides comprehensive insights into the motivation, strategy and implementation of the New World Order and its quasi-intellectual foundations. It is essential reading to understand the context of 9/11 and all that has happened since.
    So we have 12% of Republicans who think 9/11 was an inside job and 18% of Independents (like yourself) who think so. We also have 34% of Republicans and 15% of Democrats who believe the NWO is real and that comes side by side with 9/11 being an inside job. Do you believe that makes it a "strain of leftist crazy" or a belief shared by people across all ideologies? Be careful Grant, I wouldn't want you to tell another half truth.

    Lol, or the NWO, which 34% of Republicans believe exists and coincidentally is behind the 9/11 attacks.

    Re: Was liberalism rejected in the midterms?

    I would say, not so much "rejected" but "counterbalanced".

    Here in Massachusetts, it was very clear that the swing voter wanted to continue with the quite established (since Bill Weld) tradition of a libertarian-ish Republican Governor presiding over otherwise deep-blue political landscape.

    Likewise, I guess, the thought of being stuck with the social-democrats (sorry, "liberal" gives me semantic indigestion in this context) in the White House played a bigger role than any actual ideological shifts.

    However, the post-election behavior of Democrats was truly delightful, from my hostile POV.

    Re-enthroning Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi?!

    As they say, SERIOUSLY?!


    And elevating a cheap demagogue like Elizabeth Warren to a position of...eh...well, whatever it is - nobody can quite explain, but everyone knows it's a big promotion....


    If I were a Democrat, I would be VERY worried right now. The midterms is just another swing of the pendulum. But the party seems to be incapable of producing a single fresh face or a single new idea. Gay rights and immigration, all that is wonderful, but these skirmishes will be over very soon. In case nobody noticed, the younger Republican voter is "socially liberal", more often than not. And then - what will be left? The gerontocracy whose brains stopped accepting new information circa 1975, trying to impose their blurred vision of good society on unwilling and increasingly irritated fellow citizens?

    You obviously went to a lot of effort with all those links but why not just boil it down to whatever it is you're trying to say by using a quote or two?

    Re: Was liberalism rejected in the midterms?

    Just my 2 cents but, as soon as The GOP can rid their party of the stereotypical birthers and truthers, "they're coming for your guns," nutter's, racist and bigoted minority, the Cruz, Bachmann, Limbaugh thinkers and Palin types, and replace their ranks with socially liberal voters and fiscal conservatives, who are less bent on dividing the masses by use of ludicrous propaganda, we can kiss the Democrat party good-bye for a long time, (until the pendulum returns anyways.)

    My opinion is that America is ready for that. A third party won't do any good. ( A fart in a whirlwind.) The GOP needs to get back to what it use to be, once upon a time. Before the whacko hijacking.
