"Not really a surprise. Obama has said practically every day that its the Republicans fault for being such obstructionists. Even though they have given him about 95% of what he wants. And the Republicans, with the exception of a few extremists, have been virtually silent in reply."
Yep. You never hear Republicans explain why they support something. Conservatives understand why- but the ignorant public doesn't. Republicans have to make their case, and repeat it over and over until the low-information people finally hear it...
Good idea, except have you ever tried to explain to a 2,3 5 year old, or even a teen child, WHY they can't do something or why they must..........?
Talk until you are blue in the face, then you blurt out "Because I said so", at which time they STORM out, cause a scene, and break things to get their way.
It is not that they are so ignorant as they want what they want, nothing more than that.
P.S: Only the "Because I said so" happened in my house. After that came out of my mouth , THEY KNEW THE CONSEQUENCES of pushing me.
Instead they sell out their values, and the low-information folks get an object lesson that we can’t overcome.
