I watched this show on HBO last night




I was just wondering if the conservatives in the group felt that this accurately portrays their frustration...(minus the racism of course, nobody will cop to that ;))

I must say I was shocked at how Obama was portrayed over and over again as a non-Christian, and I'm not really sure how Republicans became the only "Christian" party and what being Christian has to do with anything in politics really

Yes, there are people that need to educate themselves better on the issues and not just show up on election day to vote. I also think that people need to get their emotions out of it as much as they can so they can think more rationally, use common sense, but still keep their values intact guided by their conscience. Nobody listens in a yelling match. Nobody listens when derogatory language is used.

But I will tell you this, from what I have studied, experienced, etc tells me that Obama is not the man for the job. He is leading us in the direct opposite of the path the founding fathers put us on.

We will lose our freedoms under this administration if we 'trust' the government. The majority of politicians are not public servants any longer. They are not in it for us. They do not have our backs. They are in it for their own power hungry psyches to push agendas that are not American.

We must not sit complacently back on 'autopilot' any longer. We need to be awake, alert and on our toes and take back this country that is "of the people, for the people, by the people" We need to educate our friends and neighbors so they can take a more educated roll in their citizenship.

Right...a minority, like I've said multiple times in this thread...so you DO agree with me after all, and you weren't just being ironic.

Quoting Mary:

I AM sick of sharing my vote with people who believe that women shouldn't get one, and that african americans (tho they don't use such polite language) are somehow less worthy than themselves to hold public office...they deserve to be re-educated perhaps, but they don't deserve to impact my children's future!


I would think that you would be educated enough to realize that ignorance is on both sides, but I believe it to be a minority of the conservative/republican party.

Crystal.

Just do me a favor and watch the videos again after having read my comments ok? Maybe you might actually see something there.

Oh...so I needed to quote the racist, biggoted, garbage so as not to have people believe that I could ever mean that ALL republicans are hateful loonatics. In two seperate places in my OP I clearly pointed out WHICH people in that VIDEO I was talking about...not any person on this site, and not all republicans. CLEAR ENOUGH?

"I am SICK of having to share my voting rights with misinformed, hateful loonitics"

Clear enough?.

which feeling? I have no idea what you mean...was it about liking GW after seeing Pelosi's film?, or was it about my belief that this represents a minority of republican voters, as Pelosi clearly explained in her interview on NY public radio? Or was it about my being embarrassed that in 2009 there are still bigots in this country who believe that women should not have the right to vote, and that n*%$@#^ shouldn't be president? Which point were you agreeing with...just so we can be clear?

Quoting Mary:

Laura, thanks so much for posting this...I watched Pelosi's doc on Bush's campaign, and really thought it was wonderful (in fact, I also liked GW far more after watching her movie...still didn't want him to be president, but I totally wanted to watch a football game with him). This one was quite good as well, and anyone who has 45 min. during nap time (like me) to watch it, should. I think that it clearly portrays the BASE of the Republican party as people who refuse to move into contemporary American society with the rest of us; as people who would prefer to go back to the 1950's and hang out there for eternity; as people who DO NOT do their own home work, but rather, let right wing radio and Fox news put words into their mouths; as people who would deny equal civil right to all Americans forever if we would just let them have their power back...I think (having also watched an interview with the film maker after watching the documentary) that this is a FAIR portrayal of a majority of small town, small minded, compassionless people who also call themselves republicans...I am SICK of having to share my voting rights with misinformed, hateful loonitics...and I wasn't shocked at all to hear the way these people were talking, racism included. I heard it all during the campaign, and I disagree that their point of view wasn't portrayed on mainstream media...we were all EMBARRASSED of them, but didn't silence them...


By the way Mary - the feeling is mutual.

First of all, Laura, I'm not in any way a racist! I have family members who are bi-racial.

Second, I am first and foremost an American,. Second, I'm conservative who thinks outside party lines. I believe the Constitution is a road map that we should follow closely. I will vote either Democrat or Republican, depending on the candidate's history, experience, and values that are in line with those this country was founded upon. I could care less what color their skin is.

If you ask me, there are very interesting clips in these videos where people (apparently Democrats/liberals) are saying things like McCain is not pro-black, or "I don't care what he stands for, I'm not voting Republican". "Republican's have to go." Talk about IGNORANCE! Check it out, it's in the beginning of the second part.

If Right America is feeling wronged it is because many people who are liberal are just voting the same way their peers are WITHOUT much thought. And the fact that we are being refused recourse and basically being ignored by our current administration just makes us even more adamant! We WILL BE HEARD. You have been warned. When you are finally at a place where your child has fallen deathly ill and you wait days in the ER for 'emergency help', then maybe you will see that we were trying to warn you for your own good and not because we wanted to necessarily be right. Obama's ideology is not good for you, me or anyone else. It will bring this country down and make us vulnerable to our enemies.

And by the way, the attitude that Katie Couric took when she was asked questions about how it felt to be the most hated profession? Please! All I can say is I got over that tired High School mentality of the "in crowd' vs the "out crowd". She was all full of herself like many of the others in her field that are liberal. Grow up!

But, I am very happy that there are conservatives out there who will put their necks on the line and stand up for the true values this country was founded on when the odds are against them. That gives me hope - not Obama.
