Skip to comments.Obama Supporters Slam ‘Romney’ Policies…Then Find Out They’re Actually Obama’s

Back in September, radio personality Howard Stern highlighted an often overlooked aspect of the average voter namely, that they tend to feel strongly about the candidates they like and dislike, but know very little about what the candidates actually stand for.
In a new video by We Are Change, controversial reporter Luke Rudkowski (he appears to have a number of 9/11 truther connections) went to New York City, where he told a number of self-described Obama voters that the presidents policies are actually being supported by Mitt Romney.
Though Rudkowski has a history of stirring the pot, its certainly fascinating to see how people respond.
Romney was quickly called crazy, his policies deemed unconstitutional and immoral. The crowd seemed particularly disturbed by the expansion of the Patriot Act, the National Defense Authorization Act (which allows U.S. citizens to be detained without trial), and the proposed Kill List.
So what happened when Rudkowski had to tell the group that the policies they just eviscerated were actually being supported by their presidential pick?
To their credit, a number of the voters said they needed to look it up and do some more homework. Others refused to believe the man, while others spun 180 degrees almost immediately.
One girl concluded: Well, I mean, I understand what youre saying, but theres a lot of other reasons Im going to vote for Obama, and hearing that stuff honestly doesnt change it
In the videos description, the organization reiterated that their intention is not to support Mitt Romney, but to try to get an honest answer on certain issues.
Slate Magazine adds:
two experiments are playing out at once. First: People are naturally inclined to oppose any policies if they believe those policies are held by the candidate theyre voting against. Second: How much attention have non-wonks paid to the kill list/disposition matrix? Almost none. How much of that is their fault? Well, how much sober coverage of the drone policy have they seen?
Watch the entire video, below:
Another excellent testimony in favor of ending universal suffrage.
Espousing standards one does not themselves uphold.
-hypocrisy by definition
Wait till they find out there is no health care.
THAT will be the biggest laugher ever.
With “journalists” not doing their job, there is a revolution going on with citizens doing the job the media won’t do. All you need is a video and a microphone, and you can upload the videos to u-tube for the whole world to discover the truth. Screw the media.
It was always a bad idea. Certainly no one under the age of 25 should be able to vote, except those in the military.
Luke did a fantastic job exposing the ignorance & hypocrisy of Obama supporters but is controversial.
Love the girl who came from a country that had a dictator. “let me take minute.” How about you take your life.
Reminds me of 1980, after Reagan had won.
The media began running stories about the devastation caused by Reagan-omics.
THIS, before he was even sworn in...
I’ll bet a very large percentage of Obamatons don’t even know what drones, Gitmo, the Patriot Act, and other things are. Most of them probably couldn’t name their congress man or women, senator, or the vice-president they’re that stupid. Give them a map of the world or a globe without the boundaries and names, and ask them if they can point out the U.S. or the Atlantic or the Pacific. Most would not be able to do so.
We see future, this is the early result of an education system purposely controlled by the government. Ask your self why the fraud and chief is so hot on hiring more teachers in an education system that has failed and is at the bottom of the list.
It all goes back to one big principle.
The media is the outlet whose job it is SUPPOSED to be to keep the average citizen “informed.” Instead, the media has turned into a lib propaganda machine who makes it their job to try to make certain Americans are “misinformed.”
Bottom line - the only Americans who are actually informed are the ones to make the attempt to go around the mainstream media and dig out the actual truth. As indicated in this article, libs don’t really WANT to know the truth - they want to believe that the candidate who gives away the goodies to those who don’t earn it is the best candidate for the country. When informed to the contrary, they cover their ears and declare that it doesn’t matter.
Libs give truth to the adage that “You can fool some of the people, all of the time.”
Logical decision makers look at all the facts, both supporting and against their position under consideration and only then make a decision.
Emotional decision makers make a decision and then can only see the facts that support their decision, while being totally blind to all facts which do not support the decision already made. People who are in love with O’Bummer are blind to his faults!
Or the proof for why the Founders didn’t allow it.
The “media” has always been a propaganda arm of somebody or someone. It was competition and the ability to get “news” that allowed the truth to come out. We live, surprisingly, in one of the most honest times in the history of “media”. Right now you can expose lies more easily than ever.
