Response to Whovian (Original post)

15. Truth from Republicons????

One of the comments posted after the article:

"The whole of the right, long painting the President, and thus his following, as aliens, socialists (being somewhat to the right of Richard Nixon on most issues), and anti-life demons, not only misunderstood the President, but the nature of America, in which women really do make up more than half of the vote, in which no matter how many fans of racism are placed in the hands of its base, few really can get excited about preserving tax breaks for the wealthiest among us and corporate welfare for energy corporations and those exporting jobs overseas to drop a dime on their stockholders.

The country is largely made up of working people, people who have been over the past several decades moved out of the ownership society, by the very folks, who like Mitt Romney, claim to promote such, but refuse to really spell out how, and in fact, promote actual policies that in play have had the exact opposite effect.

The whole of the Republican strategy has been one of creating an identity base, a base grounded not in actual policies but propaganda, not only about the opposition leadership, but the folks that support that leadership."
