How did Republicans earn this reputation they seem to be stuck with?

    When you mention the Republican's various wars, they insist it's simply manufactured by the Liberals or the Democrats. If you vote for leaders with certain beliefs, doesn't that prove you share those beliefs? Aren't you reinforcing their agenda?

    Don't understand being called liar simply for repeating the words of the Republican leadership.

    Just to be honest, where exactly did I get those viewpoints?

    Let's take a look at some quotes and USMB members can explain why they were taken out of context:

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NkjbJOSwq3A]Santorum: Obama "A Snob" For Wanting Everyone To Go To College - YouTube[/ame]

    What Obama actually said:

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROb2FzukjUo&feature=related]Obama Indirectly Responds To Santorum 'Snob' Comment - YouTube[/ame]

    Then there are the views on gay rights:

    Rick Santorum - Can Gay People Stop Being gay? - YouTube

    You can see the other candidates nodding their heads. She went on to say she would "abolish" the EPA. China has no EPA and they are number one in the world in birth defects.


    Let him die:



    So he is saying let charity takes care of sick people. Catholic charities get nearly 70% of their money from the government. Now get this, Rick Santorum makes over a million dollars a year but give pennies to charity because he said he can't afford more. Because he has to pay insurance. What about the rest of America. "Let him die?"

    Mitt Romney, outraged that someone would suggest mothers should go to work and then suggests that only working mothers have dignity.



    The only work poor children know is "illegal".


    Evolution:



    Only three youtubes per post is allowed

    It's endless. I've only barely scratched the surface. This is the day of Youtube. You can go and watch the candidates tell us what they mean and what they think. There is nothing I've made up. I couldn't. I like to think of myself as "creative" but I'm not THAT creative. These things would never occur to me. So where are we "mistaken"?

    I just had to go through these videos again. I couldn't make this stuff up.

    I sit in my dark room and replay these videos over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over until that's all that left of my mind

    A good education is hard work. Too bad they only learned half the equation.

    No, you can't. And I could find just as many tapes with prominant democrats taken out of context to make them look stupid.

    Do you really think Democrats have a better reputation?

    I think the real problem is that we have lost faith in both parties, and rightfully so. Neither party has acquitted itself well in terms of competence, concern for what real people are going through or an ability to level with the American people.

    Obama will probably win a second term because Romney is an awful candidate, not because he won the day idealogically.
