Duh! As if we didn’t know, your once-Grand Old Party once again sided with the bankers. I was wondering the other day about that large November GOP ‘win’ prophesied by the pundits. They must think that the voters are asleep and haven’t been watching what you and I have seen. Why in the world would the citizens of this nation want to turn the reigns of government back to the party that caused the economic disaster in the first place?
Of course, the GOP is hoping that the American voters aren’t paying close attention to their shenanigans and that they can once again bamboozle the voters with their slick tricks. It’s the so-called independents that swing elections, not the ends of the political spectrum, and there is no proof in my book that these swing voters want to give power back to the party of incompetence. I hope that I am not wrong, but I cannot imagine that this group that supported the ‘change’ back in 2008 wants to swing back to, gulp, the Bush-Cheney era!
I still have a question that confounds me, however. Where do these independents ‘get their news?’ And which Op Eds do they read? I would imagine that Talk Radio would not be a source of information nor FoxNews. And for that matter, not MSNBC. Daily newspapers are shrinking not only in numbers but coverage as well. The 6:30 network news programs barely introduce the topics and often focus these days on ‘human interest’ stories.
Maybe it’s CNN as that network seems to be essentially centrist in their news and analysis. Could ‘it’ all be in the hands of Ted Turner? Perhaps so.
