Not a democracy

October 10, 2012 - Harry Eagar
Rightwingers are fond of correcting anyone -- leftwinger or not -- who describes the country as a democracy. No, it's a republic, they say, just as if that means something.

Anyhow, the McCarthyites have always made it perfectly clear that they don't like democracy. Here's a line from a rightwinger today at a blog I sometimes read. It concerns Romney's lie during the debate about how his health plan would cover preexisting conditions.

The Republican (yes, Republican!) truth squad had to correct him the next morning. He left out 38 million people. Anyhow, when I mentioned that Romney had won the debate by telling lies, this was the response from Angry Old Guy:

"Romney is trying desperately to fudge the issue because he knows the correct policy is politically toxic. Wow."

To hell with those voters. Too lazy to take responsibility and too dumb to know what they want.

Somebody didn't get the memo that Romney was "completely wrong" about the 47%.
