How stupid has America become. When has the federal government sent out a welfare check.......it is the states who are the front line........and we want our states to come up with better methods. Newt Gingrich got people off welfare and back working, but he got buried in Mitt Romney's lies, now good old Frenchie is blowing that dog whistle trying to make Obama running around with a bag of checks to give folks who are eating watermelon on their front porch...........They run these ads because people really are that stupid.
I called my mother in Arizona last week. She and I have been staunch Republicans are whole life, and she is now 88, and instead of talking normal politics with substance, she says to me.......you know the President is a Muslim..........This was said by an intelligent woman who was pretty sophisticated in her politics. I know it could be early onset dementia, but I think it shows how effective dog whistles are.......you keep suggesting something long enough.....and those folks who are weak of mind, aged, or simply ignorant, will hear the dog whistle. Lies work if good people do not stand up and call the evil what it is.......pure unadulterated racism. It sells. It gets votes. However, thankfully the 10% of independents who are going to swing this election are not that stupid.
