Yes, half of those polled.


You don't need to be an America-hater to see that.


You need to be an American-hater to apply what they said to all Americans - as you tried to do.

"Often we tune out the static."


 


I listened to none of the GOP convention; I'll do the same with the Dems. Do not want to get caught up in emotionalism, lies, and false promises.  I'll read the platforms and watch the debates.


Still won't trust either of them.

"Americans" are not of one mind. If you say "Americans feel...." you will always be wrong. Half of the VOTERS polled do not speak for all Americans.





Preach it, brother!


Americans change their mind all the time anyway! It is both part of their ineffable charm and a strength that lets them deal with a swiftly and constantly changing reality.


Unlike many other peoples, they're not stuck in the past unable to deal with the present. They argue and agree over minutiae but preserve that right to disagree in free speech and that of mental and social liberty, religiously.

Proving he can’t speak without lying, Paul Ryan defended his previous lies about the Janesville GM plant closure being Obama’s fault by lying some more on NBC’s Today. This time, Ryan claimed he never blamed Obama for the closure but it’s still Obama’s fault and he claims GM is not alive, on the very day when all three automakers post double digit gains.


Videos at the link.


Maybe policy wonk Paul Ryan didn’t read the bills, but they included (like the brilliant and effective stimulus that Ryan was against but took the money anyway) things like retooling plants for green jobs.

I know, right? And meanwhile, Ryan could have proposed a jobs bill himself. Or any one of his Republican colleagues could have. Something to address that Janesville plant?
