    Spent the holiday week listening to the Right Wing Noise Machine .. replays of Rushbo and other wingnut, echo chamber mouthpieces and let me tell you I got an education.

    It seems right wing world is of the opinion that the GOP lost the Presidential election, not because of Romney or the right wing kooks that came out of the woodwork to actually help the President and Democrats (the Dems actually won seats in BOTH houses of Congress in 2012), but because of low information voters...people new to the process, first time voters and others.

    Imagine a party actually running against more people voting? It's hilariously funny and sad at the same time.

    I guess the GOP base thinks having information o matter how twisted or distorted makes a better voter.

    Denial runs rampant, but what is worth watching is how the right wingers deal with the fact that more people are voting now...more youth, and blacks, and others who usually sit out an election

    Dante predicts more victimhood for the GOP and it's base

    Of course the dimwitted voters would be those who actually thought Romney would beat

    Not too surprising that you missed the point. But do you have to publicize it so?

    I don't give a rats behind about the GOP.. But I do care that more voters are on the dole and are concerned about voting themselves a free ride. I guess that didn't factor in to your one man circle jerk, did it?

    :eusa_clap: Dimwitted voters versus low information voters?

    Imagine a world where the base of one party has information and lots of it, only it's almost all information that is junk science, and biased opinion substituting for fact?

    Heck, we could have the base of one party believing a capitalist President is a socialist, a President born in the state of Hawaii is somehow a Kenyan, a President who attends a black Christian church is a secret Muslim...:clap2:

    A world where there is a belief in one party for.. no human contribution to global warming, and where some people deny global warming is actually happening?

    Don't low information voters tend to be swing voters and could have swung either way? Must have saw something scary on that side of the fence.
