Total Neo Isolationist wishful thinking without the slightest hint of factual merit.
Iraq did not even make the top 10 issues in the exit polls where people cited why they voted as they did in 2008. Your assumption is completely divorced from fact. It merely wishful thinking on your part
Also, your assumption that "independents" are thoughtful serious people is prove absurd by what they voted FOR in 2008. Anyone who bothered to be informed KNEW what 0 was. That they did NOT know it proves the point that they are sheep lead by the media, not thinkers.
So you managed to bat a complete zero.
Wrong on every single one of your statements. I cannot decide which is more amusing to watch, you arrogant unwarranted assumption of the infallibility of your emotion based dogmas, or the rabid ignorance of basic facts you demonstrate in your post.
Either way you post proves you are an absurdly ignorant arrogant clown.
You don't actually really think that an anti-war Democrat or a once pro-war REPUBLICAN would admit voting for Obama (or against Bush)because of the war?? If you do, then you're more naive than I thought.
"Also, your assumption that "independents" are thoughtful serious people is prove absurd by what they voted FOR in 2008. Anyone who bothered to be informed KNEW what 0 was. That they did NOT know it proves the point that they are sheep lead by the media, not thinkers."
A LOT of people got fooled in the last election, Democrats, Republicans and Independents all, because the media abdicated completely their role as "vetters" of the candidates. That abdication was far worse and more one-sided than in any election I've seen in my fifty years of following politics. Can Independent voters be fooled?? To quote our next president "you betcha".
But the old quote goes "fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me". As evidence that this is NOT the case for independents, I submit the following data----Virginia, New Jersey, and NY-23. I think those are more than sufficient to prove my case.
So, yes, I "do" still think that independent voters are more likely to think things through than either Democrats or Republicans.
