    Two rumors surfaced this week. I dont know whether either is true or not. The first was that Obama dealt cocaine in college. The second that Trump had evidence Obama was enrolled as a foreign student. Let's say both of them were proven facts. Would Obama supporters turn off support for him? I dont think so. They would spin the first as "they all do it" and the second as "It's proof the Constitution needs to be amended." I don't think there is any point that anything damaging about a Democratic candidate would cause his supporters to reconsider.
    This is in contrast to many years ago when Democrats valued things like personal integrity. I remember when McGovern's first choice for VP, Thomas Eagleton, was revealed to have had shock therapy. He was considered unelectable and dropped. Today he would be admired on talk shows for overcoming his problem. In part I think a lot of this came from Bill Clinton, who's idea of success and sole criterion was "winning." In light of that, winning is all that matters to the Left. They rationalize it by saying "they all do it" or some other mitigating argument. But they dont all do it. The Left projects their own beliefs on their opponents. To them winning is all that matters so they think everyone feels the same.

    The same question could be asked of Romney supporters. There is no difference. Partisan hacks are partisan hacks. Those are the people that will support whoever had the right letter next to their name and probably represents about 30 percent of the vote on both sides. The rest, they would be affected by such news.

    I dispute that. The GOP has a way of eating its members who violate standards.

    I've asked pretty close to the same questions before and i haven't gotten ONE answer.

    I asked....What would it take for you to admit that Obama lied about ANYTHING? What would it take for you to say Obama screwed up big time on ANYTHING?

    The only answer i know i would get is if Obama actually spoke the words himself! If he said "I lied about Benghazi", or "I was WRONG about ........" Other than that, they can have all kinds of proof slap them upside the head and they'll STILL deny he's done anything wrong! Fricken Zombies!!

    Some of us tried to....Romney wasn't my first choice.
    But as it is, we have Romney, who is much more qualified to do the job than Obama is.
    And many people see this....

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    Please outline the GOP "standards". That way you can't flip flop when you are shown multiple examples of GOP members who have violated those standards and are still fully entrenched in the party.
