Covering a Wide Range in a Random Way

Defending Obama until the cows come home…

Obama supporters have gone all in with their empty suit…and as a result, it doesn’t matter what information had been suppressed up until this point, as we hear more and more about Obama’s nefarious past, his choice to buddy up with some of the most repulsive political figures, his lack of judgment, and shortcomings in character, Obama backers seem to be willing to defend obama until the cows come home…

The reasons…

two-fold in my opinion:

1) i have noticed that many people who have defended a position or a person for so long, without any facts to substantiate their positions, and out of pure emotion, will continue to defend that position or person simply out of ego even in the face of new facts revealing their initial positions were completely and irrefutably wrong.  Ego drives their actions as these defenders would rather act like fools by keeping their heads in the sand than admit they were fools to begin with…

2) many of those who choose to remain ignorant rather than accept the facts, do so not out of ego but precisely because defending a position until the cows come home makes it a very difficult proposition to do otherwise when they tend to live no where near a cow…

  1. Option 3
    His followers approve of these things. From what I’ve seen, this is the most likely reason for their continued support for Obama.

  2. Yes it is, and sadly – as I commented – it’s the reason i think is most likely. 😦

  4. why don’t you all check into the connection between McCain and convicted felony Gordon Liddy, who only served less than five years on a 20 year sentence, who is a domestic terrorist, caught planning to kidknap people and put them in a bus to mexico, caught with plans to firebomb the Brookings Institute. Then there is McCain’s first wife who waited for him while he was a POW only to have him run around on her from the moment he got back because she was disfigured and wasn’t the woman he left. He applied for his marriage license to the very wealthy Cindy over a month before his divorve to Carol was through. This is your paragon of Sainthood. There is probably more out there but no one has bothered to look at his connections or anything he made have done in the past like denouncing his own country.

  6. You’re funny, Terry. Either misguided or evil, but very funny. Oh, and you forgot to call us racists! You’d better go back for some remedial Obama conditioning; you’re slipping in your rhetoric.

  7. All that I wrote about McCain is very true. He told Letterman that Gordon Liddy is a very close friend. Go ahead and google Gordon Liddy and see just what he is. Here is the link about his first wife:

    Go ahead and check it out, he is a liar, a hypocrite and a cheat who has his own domestic terrorist and unsavory people.

  8. Racist and racism are words that I don’t use lightly. My son-in-law deals with enough of it to be a real issue. After all we live in Western Pa.

  9. What’s both pathetic and funny about you, Terry is that you act like every other Obama zombie Leftist. Whenever Obama is called on the carpet for his innumerable misdeeds you’re response is to find fault with others instead of addressing the issue laid out before you.

    Why is this? Is it that you know that there’s no real defense for Obama’s actions throughout his short life? Or is it because you feel we blaspheme when we speak out against your savior?
