    Unfair. You can go out and cherrypick people out of every group, which is a strategy being used against the tea partiers currently, and find idiots. If we do not like it when the tactic is used against us, we should not resort to it against others. BTW, I did not listen to the video, but I believe it probably contains dialogue from someone that voted for Obama and their very words disparage their intelligence. Am I right?

    Noticing the comments with the video, I just can't take a position. Most think the caller was 'for real;' a few don't. I tend to think she was, or else that's a good voice-actor troll. But wow-- "There should be no borders... let anyone come in who wants to come in." ... "The problem is that people make too much money." ... "Sure, Obama pays my welfare check... illegal aliens work and pay money into the government." ... "600 million" [when asked how many people already live in the USA]

    Some things are out of control-- ignorance, impersonation, joking, flooding talk shows with sarcasm, Eddie Haskell-ness...

    So do you think this is typical of Obama voters?

    Among the people I know personally who say they voted for Obama, no, most are not nearly this ignorant. But that's little to go on in determining how "typical" among his supporters are like this caller persented herself.

    My concern is not whether she is ignorant. It is the policies she espouses.

    What become of the woman who believed that Obama was going to pay for her gas and her mortgage?

    For once I agree with Cutter. To broad brush over half the people who voted in the last election with one outrageous example is exactly what people claim is going on with the Tea Party. Sauce for the goose, Mitch. And such a poor tactic is beneath you. Should we judge all Baptist pastors by Fred Phelps?

    You might do well to stay away from him. And considering he did not listen to it he has no idea what he was talking about. And he guessed wrong.

    ohh Revmitch, I'm touched by your christian charity. Anyway I went back and listened to it after I made my first post and it was exactly what I guessed. So, I do not know where you get off saying that I had no idea what I was talking about. :laugh:
