Do our homework? You betcha!

By Chrissy the Hyphenated

Everyone who has been paying attention should know by now that the mainstream media did a terrible job preparing voters for the 2008 election. Surveys showed Obama voters scored far below McCain voters on knowledge of where the two candidates stood on the important issues. They also showed that on all issues, Fox News viewers scored higher than viewers of any and ever other news source.

I think the single most pathetic statistic was that Obama voters scored very high on “Which party spent $150,000 on clothes for one of its candidates?” then overwhelmingly answered “Sarah Palin” for “Who said, ‘I can see Russia from my house’?” Clothes and a Saturday Night Live skit by Tina Fey. That’s what our Fourth Estate passed on to the voting public as the two most important things they needed to “know” about the McCain-Palin ticket before exercising their sublime right to participate in choosing the next leader of the Free World.

    Obama got 97% of the black vote in 2008;all 90% of them knew about him was that he was black.That’s all they needed to know.

      I saw interviews on the street where the guy asked questions of passers by like, “Do you think we should stay in Iraq or bring our troops home?”

      The guy would answer the Republican position. E.g., “Oh, we definitely should stay until the job is finished.”

      Then the interviewer would say, “So is that why you’re voting for Obama?”

      “Absolutely!”

      One guy said he thought the Obama-Palin ticket was the best, that Sarah Palin would be a great Vice President.

      Democracy cannot work without an informed public. What the NEA and the Left Stream Media have done in recent years makes me absolutely livid.

        Hannity does a man-on-the-street interview segment of mostly younger people asking basic questions.Most of these people are mind-numbingly stupid.They don’t know who the vice president,SOS,speaker of the house are,but they can tell you who won American Idol the last 5 years.
        Be afraid for our future-be very afeaid.

  2. It’s cold comfort that we are so much better informed than our opponents. I blame the dumbing down of American public education for this. Our citizens have been rendered stupid and lazy by a system more concerned with indoctrinating children to be good little leftists and statists than with actually educating anyone in the classical sense of the word. My teenage daughter (who has never gone to school, and who is exceptionally well-informed about public policy issues) cannot even carry on a serious conversation with most of her peers who have grown up in public school. They are appallingly ignorant and know only how to spout the party line as it’s been fed to them by their (unionized) teachers.

      I’ve just been reading about Katrina in Bush’s “Decision Points.” The big problems there were not his or FEMA’s but the mayor and governor. State and local authorities have jurisdiction in natural disasters; the feds have to be asked to help before they can do a thing.

      One reason so many people died is the mayor of New Orleans refused to issue a mandatory evacuation despite repeated reports from weather wonks that this was gonna be “The Big One” the NO community had feared for years. I’m guessing the media was loathe to blame him since he is … never guess what? … black and Democrat.

      • I remember when that happened, and I was boiling mad. The mayor and governor screwed up royally, and George Bush was accorded all the blame. As usual.

          Yeah. I just read more and I’m even more furious! Bush tried for days to get the governor to allow him to send in federal troops to stop the violence and looting. She refused absolutely and positively, so he finally sent in troops without authority to shoot.

          Our troops went into harm’s way without authority to defend themselves because a Democrat refused to allow a Republican authority to act. Thanks a heap, *itch.

          It’s less hard for me to imagine now than it would have been in the past that this woman wasn’t merely criminally incompetent, but acting on orders from the DNC big wigs.

          Look what happened … Bush was “uncaring” because he didn’t violate posse comitatus and send in troops without authorization from the state authority … Bush was a “cowboy” for sending in troops without authorization … all the violence was Bush’s fault … all the damage, all the blah blah blah blah … never mind all the good any of the rescuers did … Bush Bush Bush … Republicans Are Evil! Look at Bush! Vote Democrat!

          Remember the “fly over”? He asked for permission to come visit and was denied. The locals didn’t want to remove rescue personnel from saving all those idjits who refused to voluntarily evacuate when the mayor refused to make it mandatory. So he flew over to at least SEE what had happened. As he’s looking out, his heart is breaking, but the press took pics and said, “He doesn’t give a crap.”

          Bush Bush Evil Bush! Vote Democrat!

          So the stupid sheeple did. And the Dems got a super-majority in Congress and a pliable fool in the White House and passed ObamaCare and got billions for the unions and what all else they were itching for.

          Was that the plan? By their fruits ye shall know them. If the Gov had allowed the feds to come in, Bush would have looked like a hero. By refusing permission, he was damned if he helped and damned if he didn’t. And the only people who were truly harmed were not the Dems calling the shots, but the mostly poor, mostly black shlubs clinging to their roof tops.

          There’s another section in Decision Points where he talks about his attempts to reform immigration with a plan that was developed by a Democrat. It would’ve strengthened the borders AND allowed a route to citizenship for those who had been here for years, contributing to society and putting down roots.

          You know who blocked it? The Democrat LEADERSHIP. The legislators he talked to told him they’d been called by the big guys “upstairs” and told NOT to cooperate in any way. Did the press tell anyone this? Course not.

          It’s getting harder by the day to not hate these people.

          Lord, Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior, have mercy on their souls. Amen.

    I’m doing my homework and I am getting excited, I tell you! Tuesday our first Richmond Organizing 4 Palin meeting is going to be here at my house. I wish I could afford to feed all those people who plan to work hard for Sarah a great big steak, but maybe we should save that for the last meeting, when we plan our trip in January 2013 to D.C.

        Dearest wants me to make him a bumper sticker that says, “Don’t retreat. Reload.”

        Sadly, I told him no. In a RED state, it would just make folks laugh! But here … the libtard majority would use it to “prove” how right-wingers “incite violence” with our “hate” speech.
