This is why I think there should be a quiz or something when you register to vote.

Kudos to all who said "I don't know", at least they didn't knee jerk and say "PALIN"

:doh:

These are the thoughts of alot of people who got all of their information from the mainstream media...all through 2008, i did the same kind of research project, just for personal reasons. so everytime politics came up i would ask the Obama voters and the Mcain voters the same questions, and what i realized, wasnt that Obama voters were dumb, which is what i think this video is trying to portray, but they were just very mis-informed

problem with most GOP voters is that even the most idiotic and uneducated of the bunch are still convinced they know everything.

The reason Obama won??? Simple. He wasnt Republican. The media shoved it down our throats that the Republicans was bad for America and that Obama was the right choice. My sister in law voted for him cause he was black. Simple as that. Add the race factor to the non Republican fact and there you go. This is why I listen to talk radio. Glenn Beck Sean Hannity and Michael Savage are the only ones that know what is going on.

But, surely, if I were to post a video of a Klan rally with members holding up McCain signs amongst racist and violent depictions of Obama, and I were to claim that the video accurately portrayed McCain voters, you would be offended to be tied with such ignorance. Therefore, you can understand why someone would take offense to the opposite extreme.

That is assuming you voted for McCain.

If you could provide such a video I would be in utter disgust, but wouldn't hold it against Mcain. I'm white my wife is Chinese my future child will be mixed race. Race has no bearing who I vote for. Nor have I ever said that the actions of a few represent the whole of a party.

the dems on this board arent posting such "sour grapes" videos.

and even when bush was prez, the dem population on this board wasnt posting such trash.

this thread is simply a piece of shit so i felt compelled to drop my dump on it.

"when in rome..." :poop:


and this thread has nothing to do with race-

......Obama voters were dumb, which is what i think this video is trying to portray, but they were just very mis-informed

I have no doubt. I wasn't accusing you. But then we agree that this video does not fairly nor accurately depict Obama voters, but, instead, highlights a small select group of ignorance.

You know what, I didn't even bother to watch this video untill your last post because I figured it would be garbage, but I see no wrong in this video. I think it shows just how in the dark most people are. I'm not saying it's all democrates as I'm sure there's plenty as you said "idiotic" "uneducated" republicans. But I guess without me posting a link to that comment you never said it?

It's called freedom of speach live with it.

youre missing one MAJOR point here...

the OP is saying it is all democrats. :doh:

and to address the rest of your post, its called tongue in cheek, satire.

if you cant live with it, i certainly suggest you get used to it if you are gonna read and respond to my posts.

have a nice day! :smile:

Sorry I missed the part were anyone said "ALL" democrates, and if by some chance they did they are wrong, plain and simple. The video does show a number of complete tools, no doubt.

And you have a nice day too my friend:wink02:

did you happen to read the title of the thread?

that is "ALL" inclusive.

and just to clear things up, the reason you havent bothered, or "had the will", to post links to all the bogus shit you sling against me is because YOU CANT. :busted:

...nothing else. :bouncy:

Please point out where I said "all democrats" or even "some democrats".... Fact is I never said such a thing. Please don't tell me what I did and did not say, and please do not put words in my mouth.

I stumbled upon this and found it rather humorous. These people only knew what CNN rammed down their throats. The media made Palin out to be a moron so when asked "who claimed to have campaigned in 57 states" they automatically said it was Palin. This is why I think you should be required to take a multiple choice test to make sure you actually know what you are voting for before being allowed to vote.

People are sheep and do what ever the media or whatever their peers do. Obama was the in vogue person and everyone in the media got behind him. There for when Oprah CNN NBC and ABC all show Obama first on the news that is what people are gonna remember. Also about the "Sour Grapes" videos, dont tell me if McCain/Palin wouldve won you wouldnt be posting that kinda stuff.

I actually had a dream last night that the Steelers started playing preseason games early, making it about 8 weeks without football. Was glorious.

Bottom line: Idiots are on all sides of the political spectrum. Its not a matter of intelligence, its a matter of education. Not formal education, but the desire to be enlightened on issues and attempting to gather as much information as possible and filter and cross-reference to understand truth. However, few do this.

Hannity is an absolute joke. I have listened to many of the different talk radio people. The spew all kinds of garbage and stick to it even when proven wrong. I gave up on it. Now the only talk radio I like is NFL radio.

no. your thread just so happened to be juvenile BS propoganda and flat out sucked.

i would expect the same reaction if i posted michael moore propoganda on this board. (then again, i dont post that tripe on this board, now do i?)

anyways, keeping the spirit of the OP i will reatract my statement that this thread sucks and just reinforce that the REAL reason obama got elected was this-

:chuckle: and actually, mccain lost by a much greater margin than the typical yokel voters could influence. i guess they just related more to bush than him and didnt bother turning out like the obama voters you wish to give "tests" to. :rolleyes:

Why is he a joke, because he has strong family values and wants to hold people accountable instead of hand outs to all. Colmes was the joke before he left the show, Hannity used to eat his lunch.

So Tony you don't think EVERY voter should at least be able to correctly choose a few key stances of their candidate or at least know what party is controlling congress, etc.? I don't think you should be able to vote if you don't know anything about what you are voting for. I guess that is what the Electoral College is for though.

Yeah Hannity used to also take Colme's lunch money and Colmes would have to go to his "happy" place to keep from crying about...:noidea: at least thats what I heard.....:laughing:
