Everything is partisan and a personal attack to these people
If you're against any of their policies, it's 'partisan politics'.

If you question the president it's a 'personal attack'.

If you don't give into their demands, you're against being 'bi-partisan'.


It's like the 'blame game'. They say 'We don't play politics or the blame game, but damn those horrible bastards we're against and their horrible partisan attacks on us! They're the ones who are really at fault anyway! How dare they!'

Funny how they're the first ones to call anyone who disagrees with them names like 'radical', 'extremist', 'un-American', etc.


It continues on and on and on. Today it's 'How DARE these bastards bring up charges against me in a court of law?! It's a clear partisan attack on my political livelihood, and a clear personal attack against me. Baseless charges from horrible people!' And just like every other person out there with money and power, he'll get off by ATTACKING the person who brought up charges, regardless of the strength of the charges themselves. Hell, we see it in nearly every high profile case, don't we?

All hail: liberty and justice for all!

3. It's projection...
They are the worst at blaming the left for the things that they themselves do to a much larger degree.

4. When one no longer has any independent thought
the answers just have to be able to be repeated and believed. They don't even have to know the questions....

6. All boils down to refusal to accept responsibility for what they do.
If anyone won't go along with their exploits, they cry foul. Much like spoiled children, they will not fess up to what they do and the fact that others may have legitimate complaints with their actions.

Too many times, the ploy has worked; people have backed down and let them get away with murder. So now, when they get slapped down, they will fuss more than usual. Anyone familiar with efforts at behavior modification will tell you there is generally an increase in unwanted behavior when it suddenly fails to get the expected response. The trick is to stand like a wall and hold your ground. The DLC doesn't understand this and too often gives up righteous fights as soon as some neocon twit calls them Big Meanies.

9. Good analysis.
I equate it with their 'We are never wrong because we have absolute truth on our side' stance on every single issue. Unfortunately, money is also on their side...

"Absolutely 100% not guilty" has been used.

8. Happened during the campaign, especially.
"Liberals who say the economy is bad are just doing so because they hate Bush. And they need to stop with these personal attacks."

10. Right wind subversion of rational discourse
This is all part of the Neo-Con Psycho-politics where they say anything to confuse and disrupt any kind of constructive communications. They do not want anything constructive to be accomplished. They just want to bring it all down.

11. If they can "frame it" as partisan..then it implies it is just about
winning or losing in politics.. instead of about ethics and the sickness at the heart of the Republican party.

12. you know why that is, don't you?
it's cuz they project.

they think about how they would react in any given situation if they were the opposition, and then throw accusations.


if you want to get into these freaks psyche - listen to their words.

they repeatedly tell you who they are and what they are doing.
