    The first republican debate watcher said she'd vote Donald Duck if polls showed he had the best shot at beating Obama.

    The next republican debate watcher interviewed said the same thing about Barney the Purple Dinosaur.

    Seriously?!? :wtf:


    Is this really the attitude of MOST of you republicans?
    I no huge fan of Obama, but I'd rather have him in the White House than Barny or Donald.

    Pretty sad to hear. Some people are just that loyal to their parties.

    You mean like the blindly faithful Obamabots that cheer him no matter what he does or does not do? Like that? Like the ones that claim anyone opposed to Obama is a racist? The ones that claim the Tea Party was violent or racist? Those people?

    How about the vast majority of the main stream press that did absolutely no fact checking or vetting of Obama in 2008 and continue to defend him by not running stories damaging to him? Like that?

    I don't know... this feels like it goes beyond party loyalty. These people interviewed really, really HATE Obama. Seems personal.

    You mean like how the Anti Bush crowd was not personal? Remember when in doubt just claim they are racist.

    Hate?

    :lol:

    Maybe they just are passionate about their country?

    Could be, ya know.

    Just because I believe Obama is a horrible president doesn't mean I hate him. I bet you knew that, too.

    :rolleyes:

    You're not necessarily wrong, but I don't want this thread to turn into a typical "Well THEY do it too!!" thread.

    I want to know from the republicans if it's really personal enough to follow mythical cartoon characters into battle instead of a human.

    Not stealing enough from tax payers?

    Cronies need more money?

    The second amendment troublesome?

    Why?
