Apparently, there are some folks who still don't "get it".
When Obama lost, his supporters said "he lost" and they put the blame squarely on him.
When Ryan lost, his supporters tried to blame everybody else.
There is an extreme double standard with the radical right wing and they will continue to be at the bottom of the barrel until they are able to address this serious flaw in themselves. It's a direct result of the tactics spewed forth by faux news.
and it appears that there is a flaw in the left wing that they feel their opinion is fact....(because not all right wing minded individual think Ryan won)
Anyway, will have to get some popcorn while I read how the ATS Republicans and Democrats foam at the mouth and wring their hands up in the air during the debate tonight
Here is a major difference between liberals and conservatives. After President Obama’s abysmal performance in the first debate, liberals were rending their garments and proclaiming everything lost. After Mitt Romney’s equally bad performance on Tuesday night, many conservatives were either declaring him the winner or blaming his loss on Candy Crowley. "Game, set, match...one of the best debate performances ever by Mitt Romney," tweeted Sean Hannity. The left has a weakness for despair, the right, for delusion.
“Liberals may be less happy than conservatives because they are less ideologically prepared to rationalize (or explain away) the degree of inequality in society.” The academic parlance for this is “system justification.”
