Tag: November 2010 elections
Mr. Robinson's take: This is one screwed up election. True, Democratic favorability ratings at 33 percent have tanked, and "voters appear to be fed up with Democrats," yet voters are even more disenchanted with the Republican Party, whose favorability is just 22 percent, or way below that of Democrats. Yet the polls show voters choosing Republicans, whom they despise, over Democrats whom they despise less? Now, how could that be, illogical as it is? Robinson says this election is not a Republican wave, "it's a temper tantrum."
Even more malicious is the concerted effort by every Republican office-holder, conservative pundit, and Fox News (their agitprop machine), to convince the American public that Obama's stimulus has not worked. Constant repetition of a bald-faced lie has served them well in the past, and the Party of Malice, a name every bit as descriptive as "Party of No," is remarkably proficient now at manipulating public perception so as to create a self-fulfilling prophecy whenever they feel a need. We are being told a "double dip" recession is coming.
