“Join Attack Wire—and help stop the attacks on the President before they start.”
One thing that helped me wake up and see how non-sensical and hypocritical our democratic party is: all my comrades always regurgitated the same talking points when valid attacks were thrown at us.
Now that we have reformed “welfare as we know it,” we are all OK with it. Cuz it was Bill who did it. But before that, if you criticized our support for welfare as we knew it, with its negative “unintended” consequences (i.e., destroying the nuclear family), we spit out the same brain-dead responses. If someone asked how we can support killing unborn babies, we shot back with canned, stale responses. They worked for us because they were repeated so often, with passion, and we get ostracized if we start to voice anything contrary.
Well, things continue.
For this upcoming election, there will be many VALID criticisms of Obama. Rather than consider these, and use these as opportunities to figure out how we might best arrange govt in the USA, we will mindlessly fire back. But we need clear, brief retorts.
Fortunately, we will be fed these messages by email as the challenges emerge:
“When another unfounded attack surfaces, we’ll arm you with the truth so you can share the facts with your friends and family.”
So, go sign up.
This is hilarious. The recruitment email notes the birth certificate issue: “Here’s the deal: We all remember the birth certificate smear, the GOP’s barrage of lies about the Affordable Care Act, and the string of other phony attacks on President Obama that we’ve seen over the past few years.”
Ridiculous. All of my dem friends swore the prez HAD shown his birth certificate. When I countered that the doc was something else, they attacked me rather than listen to truth.
And Obama himself later vindicated me: he eventually shared – get this- exactly what I and others had been noting – he shared a more legit version.
Yes, Obama has shared 2 birth-certificate-type documents, when we liberals were repeating the dogma that the first one WAS the birth certificate.
So, more of the same will be coming. when someone points out that health care reform makes all of us tax-payers pay into abortion coverage funds, therefore using govt power to force us to pay for abortions with tax dollars, we liberals can spew out some canned untrue response that hides our politically motivated commitment to the campaign funds fromthe abortion lobby.
