Over the top rhetoric?
Yes, it is over the top rhetoric. You are as ignorant of what it takes to win an election as Howard Dean. Elections are won by getting more than half the centrist voters. And what was posted above is as over the top to the centrist voters as is the left calling Bush a gun toting international law breaking cowboy.
Saying what the base wants to hear in an election makes as much sense as Dean saying what the left wants to hear. You both do the same thing to opposite sides of the political spectrum.
I am sure that if Miss Marple ever wants to know how to lose and election by epic proportions, she will call on you... you are undoubtedly a great expert on how to get whipped at the polls by an inferior candidate.
As you said, this is appealing to the most radical of the base. It will send the middle people running for the hills. And we need those middle people's votes.
You said it much better than I could, but we are in 100% agreement on this article.
Thanks for the reply and explanation!
With one difference. I'm not running for office.
Here's a headline for you ....... I, as an American, have a right to my opinion, as you, and Marple have.
