    With this knowledge one would think people wouldn't be so hoodwinked by the tactics of the GOP.

    But I thought the greatest threat to our country is illegal immigrants. No, on second thought, the greatest threat is radical Islam.

    What am I thinking? The greatest threat is the Socialist agenda of the Obama administration! Oops! I almost forgot how the Democrats are planning to take away our guns.

    Damn! What about the threat gay marriage poses? Oh snap! Let's not forget the run away abortion scheme all Liberals want to implement.

    Shoot! I overlooked the environmental movement and their plan to rape our basic freedom to do as we will to the planet. But, how can I possibly forget how dangerous the labor unions are, particularly the teachers!

    At least there's no real evidence of fear mongering by the Right! They have a plan, doncha know.:eusa_whistle:

    So what? Both sides play to fear, and both side "play to win the game" (with apologies to Herm Edwards.). Hell, Climate change is one of the biggest fear mongering topics out there, and the Dems embrace it.

    If Dems are playing it they're not that stupid enough to leave their playbook out there. Whats funny is that that play book seems to be the M.O. of the Teabaggers and rightwing pundits like Limbaugh, Beck, Malkin, and Hannity.

    Ideas need to fit, when they don't they are discarded. If all your life you believe one way, nothing will change that. The human has an uncanny ability to recreate or justify perceptions when they conflict with internal biases.

    "If people want to reach a conclusion, they can usually find a way to do so. The Democrats have historically failed to grasp this rule, choosing uninspiring and aloof candidates who thought that policy arguments were forms of persuasion." Jonathan Haidt

    Soooo. because one of thier memo's got leaked it means the Dems are free and clear? They did not "leave it out there." And all politicians play on fear and ad hominem attacks or are you just forgetting the BushChimpyMcHitler rhetoric of 2000-2008?

    And minus 10 points for the whole teabagger thing, its getting old, kind of like calling all Dems marxists.
