In my experience, most Libs profess to be moderates. I think they even believe that.

A “moderate” is just another name for a fence-sitter, a middle-of-the-roader and a wishy-washy fantasizer who thinks that “everyone is really good deep down inside”.

I, a woman, will solemnly agree. It is sad, but many girls are taught such gross materialism/secularism/irrationality that there is not a brain left in their bleached little heads when they reach adulthood. So many women “think” like the ladies on the ‘View”, which is not at all. It is all emotion-—non-rational “feelings”. If they pick up a book at all, which most don’t, it has no substance whatsoever.

Your friend epitomizes the essence of the word “schmuck”.

I don’t understand why this friend hasn’t been downgraded to acquaintance en route to stranger status.

Life is too short and too filled with survival critical issues to further endure crap such as this.

It’s time to cut this particular cord.

...and I am perfectly ready and willing to continue to listen to all pleas and plans...

Wow! And I am perfectly ready and willing to bash this idiot's head against a brick wall after only a few lines of reading.

Consider this a bump until a time ever occurs that I have calmed down enough to continue reading.

Congratulate your friend on achieving the perfect, zen blending of self-righteous and stupid.

This was written by no Republican. There ability of this person to percieve reality is severely impaired. This individual would have us believe that the (not capitalized on purpose) is full of dangerous Timothy McVeighs and “the rise of right wing hate groups has grown one hundred fold” is a fact and not her personal Brown Shirt Media fed delusion. She is able to maintain this delusion by supporting folks like Zero and the CLintons while completely ignoring the “game plans” these folks are pursuing as outlined by Cloward and Piven and Saul Alinsky and others. I would question this individual’s intelligence. What else in their life have they accomplished that would make you believe they are a functionaing, rational person?

Quite right and the most elegant answer I have ever seen to respond to folks like this in power was articulated concisely by Ayn Rand. Go Galt. They can’t build their delusional dystopia without our money. Pound sand.

If you are still “trying to dialogue” with irrational folks you are wasting time. I believe the book refers to a “strong delusion”. You are seeing it. If these folks could be rational they wouldn’t be libtards.

No matter who is elected my fear is that we will be attacked at home more and more. One because they don’t fear bo and two because they will resent the gop being in power removing their adoring dem fans from power.

happy when leaders from either Party show flexibility

Ah! Haven’t heard this word (FLEXIBILITY) in a long time. It’s the secret codeword for COMPROMISE, SURRENDER, WEAKNESS and a whole host of other words that actually mean you are politically correct and a “go along to get along” guy.

When you stand your ground for your beliefs and ideas, no matter how right or wrong they may be (or someone thinks they are right or wrong), at least you show character and not that of a spineless jellyfish.

She’s probably a liberal plant pretending to be neutral, however the end goal is clear. To get those undecided voters to stay away from the polls and casting a vote for Romney.

Where did cripple come into this?

Oh, Cripplecreek has correctly pointed out that no one is more of a purest than the "Moderates".

They could never support an Honest to G-d Conservative, mostly because they are liberals who want to sound "Intellectual" by being "neither right nor left"

The only moderate instinct stronger than the instinct hate conservatives is the instinct to compromise with the left.

This is the only reply to give these mushy moderates:

I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice! And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue!

contentions there by a Poster still that our President is a Muslim and supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood. That level of absurd rhetoric and direct lying continues to create Divides instead of Common Grounds, and totally on purpose. That is not acceptable in a free country.

Right, all must believe, agree, or else.

Sickening Swill.

I will call your attention to this thread as an example of worshipping at the altar of overgeneralized thinking-—to the point of abysmal self-delusion. But you have to know, for some, the self-delusion is a more powerful drug than those Neanderthals among us who like coherency and logic. By the way...for me, that doesn’t necessarily mean details. I’m a data deleter - I like specifics but I’m not fond of details; nor do I retain them well. If that makes any sense.

Definitely a plant. It’s that weird thing with her just like Obama - all the paperwork is there ... sort of ... the credentials ... but not really ... the story ... but it’s not a true story ... and the more you look into it ... the more it looks strange, gappy, and changes shape ... and the more the other side scrambles to adjust the story even as you’re investigating it ...

Libya was just a case study.

I think Scott will win ... that what happened in 2010 and more recently in Wisconsin is not an odd political phenomena, it’s a reflection of government being so intrusive, so out of control, so .... stupid ..., that the sleepy 10% of the electorate whose vote is uncommitted say ‘enough is enough.’

Then they go right back to sleep. Which is another broader issue, and why Ryan was the right choice, but also why the history of mankind and politics is always a story of tragedy (or a comedy, if you have the advantage of being born 10 or more years after the last tragedy.)

At least this debate is some comic relief, but it’s comedic/tragic that it could be a deciding SC vote at least 2ce.

Back to the point - yeah - a plant no doubt :-) Enjoy the debate.

And to all others who have contributed , many thanks. This narrative or parts of it are traveling around the net as some of you discovered. It appears to be some free lance Democrat push document combining a number of pro-BHO talking points . A number of the points made are either duplicitous (the hate group growth is about the emergence of the TEA Party which is considered a ‘hate group’ because the Southern Poverty Law pimp Center declared them so) or irrelevant red herrings (the rate at which Romney is taxed being on long term cap gains versus straight income with no major deductions).

This narrative was embedded in a private e-mail from a family friend. I stripped out the personal parts at the front and the final graphs. The sender is someone who considers themselves a moderate Republican but is a liberal Republican. This is the story. The e-mail is from a woman who is a friend of my wife from when we lived in the DC area. She has two or three masters degrees and has worked as a reading teacher for students with learning disabilities and a school guidance counselor in several school systems in NE Maryland. Her husband was a fairly successful securities and stock and bond lawyer. He was not from an upscale background and was Baltimore City college and UMD Law. He died pretty suddenly in 2004 of a viral infection of the heart. He seems to have been a careful financial planner and left his widow and two children well provided for. His wife has pretty much always voted GOP except for Clinton the second time. However she came from a family that was pretty much all school teachers and administrators or some sort of ‘helping profession’ types. Her husband detested the Dems knowing what Baltimore city and county politics were like. He had a real hatred of the Delassandrio administration over something involving his family being screwed out of some commercial real estate through an eminent domain action which the city then gave to a connected type for a pittance. This woman has gotten steadily more liberal since her husband died and was quietly but fully supported BHO in ‘08 although she thins the GOP should have run Colin Powell as a ‘dream candidate’ matched with some ‘moderate’ GOP female. Obviously she got this screed from some of her liberal female friends . It merits an answer that is polite but damning and input from you all helps to clarify what goes back. In a conversation with her last winter she really is sold on the idea that the GOP has to be ‘open and inclusive’ in its policies. This is a small example of how the political universe is shifting. Here we have someone whose material interests and those of her children ,who are now struggling to get their footing in a terrible economy, will be harmed by the policies of the party she now supports due to how the Dems push their false narrative and implant memes. The electorate is polarizing not because we here want it to but because of the ideologization being relentlessly pushed from the left. Unfortunately as this documents use shows there are a lot of suckers who can be snared by the dems false narrative.

Compromise is the key to our government working. The GOP has refused, far more than the Democrats, to cooperate at all for the past 4 years, and Mr. McConnell's statement remains in bold-face type in many Citizens' minds, that the major goal of the GOP from 2008-2012 was to insure that Mr. Obama is a one-term President. He and his Party have certainly followed that credo for 4 years, paralyzing our government, all while offering nothing of substance in counterpoint, merely anti-Democratic rhetoric.

That is what McConnell said almost two years after Obama had been elected. Referring to the upcoming 2010 elections:

... We need to say to everyone on Election Day, “Those of you who helped make this a good day, you need to go out and help us finish the job.”

NJ: What’s the job?

McConnell: The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president. ...

McConnell went on to say:

... If President Obama does a Clintonian backflip, if he’s willing to meet us halfway on some of the biggest issues, it’s not inappropriate for us to do business with him. ...

I don’t want the president to fail; I want him to change. So, we’ll see. The next move is going to be up to him. ...

Obama quoted McConnell out of context, and his people have been doing so ever since.

Source: Washington Post factchecker

Mr. Obama was a rookie. All too many of his top people were rookies.

I see somebody switched her "r" and "w" keys ...

Adul Gheit said he had a one-on-one meeting with Obama, where the US President told him that He was still a Muslim, the son of a Muslim father, the step son of Muslim stepfather, that his half brothers in Kenya are Muslims, and that he was sympathetic towards the Muslim agenda.

Where's the video?

Soros funded Media Matters came right out with a statement saying this was all made up. Thus, I am inclined to accept the story.

Let’s put aside Obama’s religion, personally I find him to be more an atheist communist than a man of faith in anything - but I don’t care about the ‘why he does this or that’ as much as I care about the ‘what he does.’

I digress: The person says, about the so called poster (who may well be a straw man)

“That is not acceptable in a free country.”

This is the scariest, and dumbest notion I’ve ever heard ... in 2 weeks. 2 weeks ago we learned that we can not insult the ‘Prophet Mohammad’.

Now, we learn, from someone likely, and sadly, voting age, that nobody must stain the name of the Prophet Obama, Votes be Upon Him.

So much for the” free” part of “free” country. Sounds like an Animal Farm quote: ‘You can’t do this in OUR free country” ... 4 legs good, 2 legs better ...
