5. I also don't trust the consevative groups. Many here seem to say 'if those groups are against him
then I am for him'. And that is one great reason for right wing groups to claim opposition to their own man. Do they hate him? Or are they sounding that way to increase Democratic support for a Republican who is anti choice and has been anti gay in every vote, every word he has spoken on the subject. The support he gets in spite of his attacks on Hormel looks strange considering the folks supporting him were at one time very opposed to anyone who voted for IWR and they went nuts about McCain attacking Susan Rice, a possible nominee, while they dismiss Hagel's far more extreme and bigoted attack on Hormel who was just another Democratic nominee. If what McCain did was wrong, and it was, then what Hagel did was wrong, and it was. But many on Du who rightly snarled at McCain's veiled racism toward Rice are perfectly find with Hagels clearly spoken bigotry toward Hormel. This defines the Hagel supporters. Big fun can be had searching those who rationalize Hagel's Iraq War vote to find what they said about Hillary's identical vote. Some called her a war monger, and they call him 'anti war'. So Hillary voting for the war, bad, Hagel voting for the war makes him Gandhi. McCain attacking nominees unfairly is bad, Hagel doing the same with the addition of wildly hateful language, and he's 'a peacemaker who supports equal rights!'.
He's a Republican, anti choice and with a long, ugly record of attacks on minority members. Those who are alright with those things should support him. But they should not try to pretend he is not a Republican, not anti choice and that he does not have a long history of bigoted hate speech. Because he is, he is and he does.
