Well-said. They'd never get away with it if most Americans weren't so gullible.
True. Some Americans are gullible. In viewing your comment, I immediately thought of the elderly -- like my mother-in-law -- whose only national and international news comes from the networks. It's all she's ever had...and she has swallowed the media's line totally.
Then...I had a flash of insight.
This morning, I'm sitting here listening to the morning talk show on WBAP, Dallas/Fort Worth. And I am hearing liberals -- young and middle-aged liberals -- calling in.
They are absolutely irate about the President's speech last night. They won't even give his plan a chance -- since it's Bush's plan, it MUST be wrong. They are unable to articulate a single coherent thought regarding Iraq or the President.
Instead, they are speaking out of anger and totally out of reflex -- parroting the Democrat talking points that the MSM has been shoveling into their skulls for the past three years. They won't entertain any other opinion, much less respect it.
Yet, they have nothing in the way of facts to support their position -- other than "Bush bad". Talk about "gullible"...
The most gullible Americans of all are the moonbat liberals.
