O'Reilly or Limbaugh? I think Limbaugh is on to something. There are just more low info voters out there that makes it hard to overcome them at the ballot box. Many are "takers" and really don't think beyond the current day. We have a detached "Road Show" President stuck in perpetual campaign mode and a House that has no balls whatsoever when it comes to standing up to the opposition. We all know the situation with the media so there's no sense rehashing that. We have the GOP who actually thinks they are going to win back the Latino vote, a vote that they never really had to start with. We have porous borders that no one really tries to close. Lip service is not border control.I just don't see things turning around soon, if ever.O'Reilly: Limbaugh Wrong Left Has Won"But on his Friday radio show, Limbaugh said: “The purpose of this program has been to create as large a body of informed voting citizens as possible. While we've been largely and profoundly successful at that, the left has beaten us. They have created far more low-information, unaware, uneducated people than we've been able to keep up with."http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/oreilly-limbaugh-left-action/2013/02/25/id/491969
I don't think the low informed voter is the problem, they don't care. The problem is the so called 47% who will do anything to keep their handouts, they vote! Now many if the 47% may be the low informed voter?
BINGO! I don't recall where I read or heard this and I admit it isn't quite this simple but all a Democrat has to do is gain about 5 percent of the opposition vote and he or she is victorious since they start off with an assurance of approximately 47%.Now again, granted that's not a statistical fact but in layman's terms, "it's a hell of a head start" to have to overcome.
Yes it is and I am embarrassed to say that I knew some of the 5% that swung over, some used to be hardcore righties all their life. But this yr did the switch.Here is what I got from one of them, well my daughter is now a single mom and Romney would have cut her foodstamps (subsides). I nearly fell of my chair. Oh well she is a healthy woman let her work.Also they don't have to pick up 5% is all they have to do is have some of the hardcore Republicans stay home. I have a few nephews who didn't vote this yr also, just said it wouldn't matter. I had a very hard and dramatic election yr.
I am so disgusted by what is happening in this country that it's invading all aspects of my life and I see it affecting even my personality. I don't suffer fools easily and I'm far more quick to tell you off and even dump you as a friend. I can't stand living where I do any longer and I readily admit that I am not interested in one's opinion as far as politics if it isn't in agreement with mine. Sounds terrible but at least it's honest.I admit that I have become the inolerant jackass that I used to abhor. I find myself only happy when I am among like-minded individuals. I blame a great deal of it on my personal frustration with the last 4 years and the revelation that as a person there isn't really much I can do about it alone.People offers advice and platitudes which I'm afraid to say is just bullshit. I have two eyes and I can clearly see where we are headed and it's going to be an ugly trainwreck.
Same here Turks....And yes, the train has several directions to take and it's hard to change tracks at the rate of speed we're traveling, but as a passenger I won't sit idly by, or even bail, I'll do all I can to convince as many as possible to pressure the engineer to slow down and take a different track, even if that means taking over the train.
Neither is wrong, Oreily took Limbaugh out of context.But what both said is true, Rush said, the left has generated more low info voters, and Oreily is correct, the Right has no leadership.Bill is trying to suck off the power of Rush, it's what lower rated talk shows do.Oreily is the last person I would listen to, where Conservative ideas are concerned.
He's the biggest blowhard on cable. Yeah, "he's looking out for you". Right! He's looking out for his bank account and his even bigger ego.
