I know the right-wing no longer believes in fact-checking (or facts, for that matter), but you are demonstrably wrong.
The election history of both states shows that both parties have an excellent shot at winning in any given year. This is especially true of Iowa, which went for Bush in 2004, but even in Wisconsin, Bush only lost by 1% in 2004, and the 2000 election was a 48-48 tie. Given the fact that the GOP has a hometown boy on the ticket, WI was definitely considered to be very much in play this year.
I am fortunate enough to have spent my entire life in the 53%, but I'm also fully aware that not everybody is so privileged.
The GOP is ABSOLUTELY committed to ending or severely curtailing social programs. They have said so publicly, and it's on tape! Why is the media at fault for merely quoting Republicans on this fact?
This is lifted directly from the Newt Gingrich talking points on delegitimizing our duly elected president. The speaker and the statement are both beneath contempt.
Ad hominem attacks are a sure sign that you are have no substantive arguments to offer. We can respectfully disagree without resorting to such pathetic tactics (at least I can, but then I can back up my position).
For the record, I don't need, want or receive any "crumbs" from the Democratic party. And I'm not "amazingly stupid" - on the contrary, I'm quite highly educated (PhD in political science, MA in economics, completing a second PhD at FIU beginning next year). But you don't need a piece of paper to know who gives a s**t about the 100%.
I have tremendous respect for the American people and our democratic process, and I don't feel the need to denigrate the intelligence of those on the other side.
I love Sherrod. Wish I could vote for him too, although listening to him makes me reach for a Ricola
