Politics isn't exactly known for being the nicest game in town, but it seems as though the Left has gotten rather punchy lately. Whether it's Vice President Joe Biden calling the owner of a custard shop a "smartass " for asking Biden to lower his taxes
Funny, looking at the video in your own link: The owner was joking, and Biden was joking. And there's an edit between the two statements. But leave it to lying right-wingers to describe it like the owner was making a serious somber question.
to the head of the AFL-CIO calling Fox Business Channel host Neil Cavuto an "asshole"
That's because Cavuto was being an asshole, Asshole. Stating Blackwell got his degree at a baking school more than opened himself up for being called an asshole. But leave it to right-wing assholes to leave that "little" detail out.
it seems the Left has decided to pull off the kid gloves and attack anyone who might have a contrary opinion. Wow. And they're supposed to be the tolerant ones?
Oh, I see. So if it's from the left, it's an "attack." If it's from the right, it's "stating a contrary opinion."
I attribute a large portion of this vitriol to the fact that they haven't been able to do things they've wanted, due in large part to people like Glenn Beck, Andrew Breitbart, and others exposing the true face of the Left.
Nope, they just lie. And that's been proven over and over again. The Sherrod situation is just a recent example.
In response, the Left has attacked these folks, with the results being...well, let's just say the word "impotent" comes to mind. They have the power to do some things, but they lack the knowledge to use that power effectively. Instead, they try to force their ideas down our throats instead of persuading us.
Total bullshit. No matter what, you're just going to say no anyway.
Then, you have to consider that the Leftist approach to life is juvenile at best. Leftists are in a permanent state of arrested development in that they tend not to react intellectually to an issue. For them, every issue is a matter of ego. If they support a certain position, they feel morally and intellectually superior, no matter how dumb that position actually is. Take climate change, for example. They think that if we stop offshore drilling and develop alternate fuel sources that they can "fix" the planet's climate change woes. Yeah, but try telling them that weening us off oil right now without a viable alternative (and, no, ethanol is not a viable alternative) is stupid, and they'll get downright mean. It's because they've invested so much of their ego towards the cause of their choice that they don't see how people might not agree with their take on how to address the cause.
You want to talk about anti-intellectualism? You're the guys that say that scientists are lying. That's not just anti-intellectualism, it's full-on mental retardation.
They need to stop offshore drilling until the flaws are straightened out. I know you guys laugh at workers getting killed, but some people give a shit.
And nobody is saying that we can be weened off oil "right now." They're saying that we need to find a viable alternative and stop dragging our feet.
As far as ethanol, Bush supported it and he had oil experience. Why didn't you laugh at him back then?
As the summer gets hotter, expect the Democrats' attacks to be on the rise. They're bracing for what can only be a Congressional butt-kicking for the ages by lashing out against those who they need to stem the tide. Smart move, kids.
You guys have been attacking since Day One. The difference is that you have to make things up in order to do it.
Let's see how that works in 2012, okay?
That's funny, coming from the guy that said Obama would lose the presidential election.
Ever since 2008, Obama has been trying to build a bridge over the partisan divide, except the Republicans keep burning down the bridge and blaming Obama for not getting the bridge built faster.
If Democrats say: "We want to pass a bill that protects cute, innocent little babies from packs of wild dogs." Republicans would respond with: "FILIBUSTER! Now Obama wants to control wild dogs, too? Democrats want to take food out of the mouths of innocent puppies!"
Republicans saying "These people didn't want you to have health care reform, banking reform or extended unemployment benefits, but they sure do care about BP," is an excellent strategy.
No need to sling mud against Republicans. The facts suffice.
