Why Are Republicans So Stupid?

No, seriously. I want to know why.

They get six years of free reign during which they drive the country into a ditch. Not just any ditch, either--a snow-filled ditch with a pond of thin ice at the bottom, far, far away from the nearest gas station. Then, they start losing. So, instead of asking themselves why they are losing, they double down, and lose some more.

Then, they finally begin to wonder why they are losing. But they stubbornly refuse to believe that people might not like their ideas. What they do know is that the Democrats used social networking technology to their benefit during the 2008 election cycle. So, they go all in for the Twitter. And, they notice that a message that seemed to resonate with voters was that Bush never listened to anyone else's ideas and just did whatever he wanted. People didn't like it. So, in their infinite stupidity, they've decided that if they can liken President Obama and the Democrats to terrorists/Hitler/socialists/fascists who don't care what the opposition thinks, people will vote for them again.

But here's the rub: Bush actually didn't ever listen to any opposing points of view and he did run roughshod over the nation for eight years, stripping civil liberties, allowing corporations to raid the store, and giving the rest of the world a great big middle finger. And, Democrats did use social networking technology to successful effect during the 2008 election cycle, but it was because they used the technologies to disseminate their ideas. It's not the technology. It's what you do with it.

Yelling the same lies over and over doesn't make them true. I think a four-year-old child can grasp that concept. Actually, I'm pretty sure a two-year-old child can as well. So why are Republicans using Twitter basically to do just that? If they claim to hate communism so much why have they taken philosophy from Vladamir Lenin ("A lie told often enough becomes truth") and made it the basis, core, and strategy of their political playbook? Mind you, it worked for a FOR A WHILE (i.e. 2002 midterms and 2004 elections). But you'd think after the beating they took in 2006, and the absolute undressing of a blowout in 2008, they'd surely get it. But not "these" republicans. McConnell, Boehner, Bachmann, Palin, McCain, Cantor, and many others and the minions who support their tried and FAILED ways still will not revise or "CHANGE" the playbook.

They remind me of a bad sports team with a even worse coach. It's like "OK team, listen up! No matter how bad we're getting beat and how much we lose, we're going to stick to the game plan. It doesn't matter if the opposing team know our playbook to he letter, and the fans have even figured it out. We will stay the course.

In other words, why are they so dumb?

Another point NOT taken from the American people they just seem to have pretend didn't happen and have ignored. The republicans did not learn one thing in the New York political race when they did not back a sure winner (Dede Scozzafava) and went with a so called "far right" person (Doug Hoffman). They lost the seat that was sure to be winner because the woman would not dance to their so called "far right" tune.

They have the same problem in Florida and if Charlie Crist runs as an independent they are guaranteed to lose the seat. They are now begging Crist to drop out and not run for they would rather have a someone that can be bought to do as they tell him than a winner that will do all he can to make America a better place by working with everyone to get the best things for this country. They would rather lose the seat than to have a winner they cannot tell what to do.

Just maybe Texas and Arizona need to pay attention to the 23rd congressional district of New York and vote for the Democrat. In Texas for the republican gubernatorial race you have in each corner (Rick Perry vs. Kay Bailey Hutchinson) campaigning on the platform of who can be the biggest far-right nutjob who seeks even more disrespect, disagreement and discord with the President and Democrats. The same exact thing is going on in Arizona (John McCain vs. J.D. Hayworth) as if that state haven't excreted enough political poo to keep stepping in.

Again I pose the question.... Why Are Republicans So Stupid?



*Sane minded independent thinking republicans/conservatives who truly stick to conservative core values (i.e. Lincoln, T. Roosevelt, Eisenhower, M.L. King), this a blog does not concern you, except in the case that you look at the type of said republican/conservative mentioned above and just have to "face palm" in disgust and dismay*

    You are analyzing far too much. This country has always run on the energy and funding of the mob manipulated by the few very wealthy. The teabaggers are the perfect modern example of this dynamic at work. Anyone with any knowledge of the history of this will understand well, as the examples abound, of how the monied minority has used lies and manipulation to keep the rabble oppressed. The history of slavery and the oppression of American Indians (and the intentional genocide, cultural and physical) that continues to this day (look a the BIA's treatment of tribes).

    Ignorant because of our horrible educational system, the most of the mob has no idea how this government works or what its purpose is. Most have no understanding of American history and having stopped their education in high school or at a low level technology/trade education, have no grounding in world history either and have no understanding of complex issues today or any information to make a rational analysis and judgment.

    I believe this is no accident. The wealthy in this country all attend private schools, go on to get the best higher education and then move onto high paying, influential careers where they have no contact with the herd nor any concern for them, save for keeping them under control.

    Dick Armey's "freedom works", FOX news and the other corporate sponsors of these idiots show clearly how they are tools of their own very oppressors. But they will never want to admit it.

    In fact, the hurt of acknowledging that they've been led down the river only causes them to sink further into denial, be further exploited and defend their false position even more. Like a drunk who fights tooth and nail to get help even though he knows he's killing himself slowly everyday. The only way to wrestle them from their false master is to keep pushing them to see the truth.

    Most Republicans grew up in small cities and towns or rural communities where almost everybody they knew was a Republican. Some are just parroting the beliefs of their family or communities without really thinking for themselves. Many haven't lived in big cities long enough to see the huge gap between rich and poor or talked to people with different views than their conservative ones. They dislike the idea of abortion being legal without taking into account the possibility that a woman can be raped. They don't think environmental issues are of concern the same way most Democrats do because many haven't lived in big cities with smog, polluted rivers, and undrinkable water. They believe that the rich create jobs without considering the idea that they can empower themselves by being self employed or they ignore the fact that the super rich profit off of suckers who obey them and would jump at a chance to swindle the little guy out of his life savings. Some have been taught a narrow-minded view of things their whole life by ignorant and overly religious nuts who love guns and Jesus but are incapable of seeing the big picture. Some probably think Jesus will fix the environment when he comes back. As for why some people think that Obama is a secret Muslim; even though that assumptio...

Stupid is as stupid does. Some Republicans seem to take solace in retreating to a fantasy world where stupid things that don't make sense on any feasible level (but support their own dumb ideas and opinions) are REAL.

    people give obama so much grief over what has happened during his office, yet the dont look for a second at the imbecile that came before him, who left the country in two wars and facing the worst economic crisis since the depression, not only that, obama tried to bring american healthcare and education into the modern age, but it was spat back in his face.

    The answer is, because they are "followers". They are uncapable of thinking for themselves. They need their leaders to tell them what to think and do. They need the Rush Limbaugh's and Sarah Palin's because they don't trust their own ability to find the truth, nor do they have the desire to know the truth.

    Conservatives are republicans, you vote for republicans. There is no ballot that says "conservative candidate" so get over it. Conservatives are no better, no different, you are a republican.

    You should use spacing between your sentences, it will make you look like you know how to write. Obama, by the way, is doing a whole lot to try and fix the problems Bush either created, ignored, or aggravated. Republicans are doing their best with fear mongering and unprecedented overuse of the filibuster to thwart any progress. For example, repubs just got the Bush tax cuts extended to the wealthiest 1%. Because they really need it obviously, that will really help our deficit, thank you so much. Why does the right wing hate America? By the way, what is a bagger? Republicans have so many hateful names for liberals. You can't defend your senseless opinions with facts so you resort to name calling like an uninformed 5 year old.
