I guess it's time for you to acknowledge the aggressive, backroom "WAR ON TEH MENS" underway by the Ds as well. And, since poll numbers apparently equal intent, you can now acknowledge the bitter hatred that Ds have of white men - especially older white men.
Because since Ds don't poll well with that group, clearly THE WAR IS ON!
Why do Ds hate white men so?
Predictably, once Mr. McCain ran for president again in 2008 and Democrats started sending negative messages about him, the public quickly came to see him as a conventional partisan. By late October 2008, a CBS/New York Times poll found that only 11 percent of Democrats and 38 percent of independents had a favorable view of him. Ms. Clinton’s image is undergoing a similar transformation.
As both cases illustrate, we tend to overrate the importance of candidate image, which is largely a function of the flow of partisan messages. When opposition elites withhold criticism during, say, a presidential honeymoon or a foreign policy crisis, politicians can seem unstoppable, but when normal politics resume, their images — and their poll numbers — quickly return to earth. The same will be true for Ms. Clinton.
The rest of the post is so insulting that I won't bother to respond, other than to note that your ability to piss off countless posters here and never seem to self-reflect on it is impressive in its own way.
4601: Do you believe the Rs are undertaking a "War on Women," or do you recognize it as being silly propaganda that can easily be matched with an equally ridiculous "War on Men" claim by Rs? And whose mind got changed or inflamed by an amazingly narrow Supreme Court decision? You're projecting.
He's on the autistic spectrum and I honestly think he doesn't realize how insulting he often is to people who have in no way insulted him.
The "War on Women" meme is crude and propagandistic, and I doubt if it's more than a rhetorical device used as a fundraising tactic.
Is being autistic an insult here? I mean I am not autistic, but my son is on the spectrum (as is the ex-wife, btw) so I am very familiar with it. But thanks for the diagnosis Dr. GF, you are as correct here as usual.
Of course it's not an insult, but I can see how you'd have difficulty understanding the nuances of human interaction. Color me shocked that the rest of your family is autistic though. No one could have possibly seen THAT coming.
I would say that calling it a "War on Women" is not necessarily hysterical, but it is way over the top. I also think you're contributing to the problem of crappy dialogue in this country when you call it that or legitimize the phrase.
If you actually pay attention to what the GOP is doing it is pretty clearly anti-woman (as women see it) and anti-minority (as minorities see it). You can mock the exact verbiage all you want - lord knows I have mocked War on Drugs, War on Poverty, and War on Terrorism - however the victims of this "war" very much perceive it that way.
In and of itself the ruling may not matter much, but it is another data point showing who is on what side.
