Why do wingnuts think Obama is trashing the Constitution?
Seriously, what's he doing to the Constitution that is so bad? Bush went to great lenghts to absolutely trash our founding document and called it "a stupid piece of paper." Yet, they didn't care that he was pissing all over the Constitution because he was one of theirs. Now that Obama is in and is actually following the Constitution, the wingnuts claim he's ripping it up. Ignorance is Strength and thinking for oneself is doubleplusungood.

My personal opinion is that it has absolutely nothing to do with the Constitution at all. It's because they can't stand a President (or a Supreme Court justice, for that matter) who isn't a white male, and that the Becks and Limbaughs of the world are getting all these idiots all fired up.

Has a wingnut ever even elaborated on how Obama is trashing the Constitution, or how he's a socialist? Or is it some stupid notion that wingnuts just seem to believe because Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh say it?

2. Every American is entitled to get fucked over by rich insurance agencies...
It's in the constitution...somewhere.

12. Exactly.
I've never seen such a pack of faux angry people hysterical over the prospect that some huge corporation, which regularly denies and regulates THEIR health care, might not be able to pay the CEO $50 million next year.

They aren't going to engage in complex discussion - they are relying on the same old thing they've always used - fear, innuendo, misinformation, hysteria and soundbites. It works with some people...that's why they can't engage the discussion beyond shouting.

3. Wingnuts don't think. That would be elitist. "I think, therefore I am
an Elitist."

4. They're not smart enough to think of their own stuff, so they reuse the shit that we said about Bush
Which was, in Bush's case, completely true.

Republicans are just not very smart.

7. They don't. Think, that is.
That's just one of the things they're told.

They haven't got 10 complete functioning brain cells among the whole lot of them, so the anti-anything-Obama manipulators just feed them short lines they can actually remember. They have no clue what anything actually means.

8. There is real evidence
that Dubya trashed the constitution in several ways and the repubs turned a blind eye and said it was justified. Skip to the present and with no evidence to the contrary they say Obama, is trashing the constitution? I'm really beginning to hate those bastards.

11. Projection
Why do larcenists tend to feel people are trying to steal from them?
Why are proselytes so sure everyone's lost and scared?
Why do narcissists think others are obsessed with themselves?

13. Your thesis fell apart when you put the words "wingnuts" and "think"
in the same sentence. They are like parrots, or better still, meatpuppets who only repeat what their masters tell them.
