The Democratic party and Republican party, for the most part, don't represent clearly defined ideals anymore (if they ever did).But I don't think most Democrats - or Republicans - are "stupid". They are just focused on different solutions to the different problems they use to define themselves.Traditionally, Republicans have been identified with business interests. "Captitalist", of course, being a form of government that encourages and nurtures, well, people and entities with chunks of capital, money, and use it to produce things, employ people, expand markets, and generally grow an economy. Thus, having *someone* on the side of business makes sense in a nation that claims as one of it's strengths the ability of average citizens to amass some small portion of . . capital. Democrats have been identified in the past with using government to support "people". Little people (oops, I guess I do have a particular leaning). Democrats have ridden programs of government largesse to people "in need" for a responsive vote of confidence - so that people getting government support keep those that keep the support flowing, in power.Which makes organized labor, labor unions, a natural ally of the Democrats. Labor unions, after all, are a natural, socialist enemy of capitalists making a profit by making something.Democrats, and the current administration, aren't stupid. They are just focused on draining the strength of America for their own socialist purposes. This President, of course, has the additional objective of punishing capitalists (in a Capitalist nation, no less), for having funds he could be raiding for his buddies. (Big corporations are sitting on what, $2 trillion, now, in cash, rather than put it out there where the government might glom onto big chunks?)Don't call the Democrats stupid. I think of it more as "murder-suicide".
Rather than stupid, I prefer to think of them as "reality-impaired".
I don't think Obama is "clueless" I think he's just completely blinded by his own narcissism.His massive narcissism and ego don't allow him to consider even the possibility that it's HIM.Also, this is typical of Dems. They have a nasty habit of blaming anyone and anything except those actually responsible.
Not a Dem, but I have voted that way a few times. What is inaccurate/stupid about saying the country was in really bad shape when Obama took over?
What is inaccurate/stupid about saying the country was in really bad shape when Obama took over?That's not what that says, though. What that says is we "blamed the black guy." And that shows a fundamental lack of understanding about conservatives in general and the reasons many Democrats were voted out in the recent elections in particular.
"That's not what that says, though. What that says is we "blamed the black guy."

I mean it's an exaggeration to say that the Conservative movement as a whole blamed every problem facing us on Obama, but it's a pretty fair to say that those people exist, and frankly in larger numbers than anybody on either side of the isle should be happy with. It was also meant to be funny. "I disagree with your position but find you to be a reasonable person" my be more polite, but it's not particularly comedic. Well I suppose it could be depending on who you are saying it too.And frankly, I don't think either side has a very good handle on why this election, or the last few for that matter, went the way they did.
It was also meant to be funny.Yeah, that I know, and the first time I came across it, it was funny. This most recent time, though, it was the internet equivalent of childish foot-stomping (which we conservatives did plenty of in '08).And frankly, I don't think either side has a very good handle on why this election, or the last few for that matter, went the way they did.And THAT you are 100% correct on, I am certain.
