3. Remember in elementary school....
...when you were taught about why and when you should start a new paragraph in a report. (New, UNRELATED thought = new paragraph) The Republicans have turned the REVERSE of this rule into an art form. They purposely include two UNRELATED ideas in the same sentence or paragraph. In your sentence above...."the terrorists want to hit America and the Democrats are blocking the tools we need." what two unrelated words stand out? "Terrorists" and "Democrats". Those are the two words they will morph together to form an UNTRUE, manipulative connection in the minds of the American people. No one questions the falsehood of the statement.

Why do you think so many Americans still think Saddam Hussein was responsible for 9/11? Because this administration has been instructed to ALWAYS include the words 9/11 and Sadaam Hussein in the same paragraph. Our minds make the connection, even though the Republican response is always that they never said that directly. They didn't. They just combined those two unrelated ideas in the same unit of thought.
