For five years! You know what? The problem is, these people own it. I have no sympathy for ’em, but the fact of the matter is they have doomed this country with their stupidity, with their blind loyalty and their stupid hatred of conservatives drummed up by a media that knows what it’s doing. These people — via their stupidity and their partisanship and their ignorance and whatever else — have supported something that is an albatross, at best.
They had every opportunity to learn the truth about this.
They had every chance to believe the truth.
And because of their own closed-minded bigotry, they chose to reject the truth when they heard it because they didn’t think the people telling them the truth were good people. They thought the people telling them the truth were racist, sexist, bigot, homophobe conservative extremists. So they weren’t gonna believe the truth. They believed the people lying to them, and they believed it all the way up until the moment of truth when they found out they’d been lied to. And even with all that, the concern now is not these people and the costs that they’re going to experience.
The concern in the media is, “How will this affect Obama and the Democrat Party, and what can we do to mitigate that?”
