To be honest, if your idea of being productive is throwing a hissy fit on the internet about how someone pointed out some probable facts that made you feel bad, I don’t want you on my team. I have no interest in joining together with you.
Counterpoint: Obama’s only really strong polling area is foreign policy and if we waste time criticizing him for that ON THE LEFT, well. We deserve what’s coming to us. I understand there are Serious Feelings there, but I’m generally in favor of actual victories over moral ones.
Like, part of being a team is letting Lawrence Taylor do enough coke to kill a horse if he shows up on Sundays, dig?
It is certainly true that Romney=more murderous robots, more extra-legal detentions, probably even a return to sanctioned torture (plus an unnecessary confrontation with Russia and China).
On the other hand this does not mean that your only choices are silence or Terminators. As always it is a question of framing, timing and venue. Do I think we should be focused on drones in October? No. Do I think that a bunch of liberals on tumblr sharing links about slaughtered wedding parties in June will cost the election? No again.
the following will not be a reason Obama loses in November: Anti-war folks.
they are a very small number, they live in very blue states, and their criticism from the left make Obama appear moderate.
Nader did not cause Gore to lose in 2000, everyone stop hippy punching.
