No, actually I was alerted to the fact after reading a National Review article and only after looking up the backgrounds of the four in question for myself.
I found the Iowa Freeper's comments only after this. Also a couple of other Freepers were aware of it.
And on the contrary...I know that Boehner doesn't walk on water. But it seems too many Freepers are looking for a candidate who does. That's why candidate after candidate who Freepers fall in love with so quickly also fall out of favor here so fast. We go through Herman Cains, Fred Thompsons, Eric Cantors, Michael Steeles (yes, believe it or not he was loved here at one time), Rick Santorums, Michelle Bachmanns, Rick Perrys etc. like Kleenex.
Funny, I hadn’t seen you mention it until another Freeper posted about it. Odd that.
And as for the rest of your strawmen, your post history is filled to bursting with excuse after excuse for the GOP.
That’s simply a fact. Don’t try blaming anyone but yourself for your fawning. More than a few of us see the sycophancy for what it is. But you keep right on keepin’ on.
Grandma always said that some people are needed to serve as bad examples.
