Comments: The Pupgullion President
Why do you think the facts matter to the Obama supporters? They don't make and support charges of racism by some GOP schmuck because they are opposed to racism, per se, or because the events in question are racism. The commie-libs make charges, such as racism, because of the effect they have not the truth. They would just as easily charge (insert_name_here) with being a child molestor, baby stomper, or Martian simply because they want (insert_name_here) to be on the defensive and to spend as many days as possible talking about if he really is (insert_charge_here).
Until people on the right stop trying to detect the germ of truth in every baseless allegation and then think they can explain away the charge with facts they will keep losing badly to these commie-libs.
When I explain this to people with real examples virtually every listener, including talk radio hosts, agrees that my explanation syncs with their reality and then they return to the dysfunctional behavior of minute fact analysis. The Left is eating your lunch because you are addicted to facts and addicted to behavior that isn't working to stop them.
CHANGE YOUR BEHAVIOR
TV Watching audiences don't collect facts and arguments and analyze them. They look at the pictures and remember a feeling they had. If a conservative is on TV defending against some baseless charge, the TV Watchers will simply remember the name (Joe Schmoe) and something about him being bad.
If you want to defeat the commie-libs stop losing in the regular comfortable way. If you just want to have the conversation to feel better stop explaining your points with "saving the country" as a premise. Nobody is going to give us back the country. We have to go take it.

Scott makes the case I've said before. You fight by THEIR rules. The puppet out front doesn't engage in this noise; that's why you have backbenchers.
Nice isn't a winning strategy. That just gets your face punched repeatedly.

Liberals don't read anything it seems. Look at Obamacare and the other catastrophically gigantic and massively expensive bills their Congress passed. No one read any of them. Why would they want or need to read an entire book written by a ghost writer for The One?
They certainly don't read history or historical documents (like that "Constitution" thing), so why read anything more challenging than the side of a cereal box?

I can visualize it now. The BHO backers will soon proclaim that if a candidate for POTUS has not eaten dog, snake and oh yes, grasshoppers, he isn't fit to be elected.
