    Yes....I did indeed learn something.

    The "gobbledygook" you posted (above) tells me all I need to know. Thanks anyway.

    I don't think it'll have a huge effect.

    I think it'll piss off liberals greatly. I think some left leaning moderates will be turned off as well.

    For the most part, I think it'll have little effect. The most extremely idiotic, conspiritorial things will be ignored. Some of the more plausable ones rooted in partial truth depending on what perspective you view it at will stick a bit. The general negative attitude will propel some in disliking him and encourage others to defend him.

    Yes, we're talking about "current" events, but one need only look at the past 8 years to easily see the general effects these kind of things are. They are no larger or worse with Obama honestly than with Bush, but after 8 years of their side doing it Liberals are finally having it happen to them and are "shocked" by how huge it seems.

    Its not, its just that the shoe is on the other foot now and suddenly it seems so much tighter.

    I don't think it'll be much of an issue all things considered.

    I think the absurdity of many of the charges against Obama is the major difference that will/has degraded the credibility of the GOP to a point that most (even semi open-minded) voters discount any GOP ideas as just more absurdity. As the old childrens' fable points out, you can't yell "Wolf" all the time & expect attention when the real wolf shows up.
    The anti-Bush attacks were many, pointed & some may not have been true, but they weren't so absurd as to insult the intelligence of the average voter.


    The GOP really wants us to believe that Obama is:
    An iIllegal alien who should be deported, is close buddies with murdering terrorists, has a strong desire to kill our grandparents, wants to turn our country into a communists state, has plans to take our guns away (I guess & give them to his terrorist pals??) , is (at the same time) both Casper Milquetoast & Adolf Hitler.....& so on....ad infunitum.
    They (GOP) don't just use these ridiculous stories to make a point.....They really want us to believe them?!

    Oh, of course . . . about Bush, it was simply true; about Obama, it's all BS.

    And people wonder why the country seems so hopelessly divided. Here's a sterling example.

    Point out some (Democratic Party sponsored) absurd anti-Bush attacks that were as insulting to the average voter as ones like Obama wants to kill your grandparents?

    Serious question: Are you satisfied with the effectiveness/credibility of the GOP anti-Obama statements?
