    49% Of GOP Think A Non Existent Group Stole The Election

    PPP Poll

    49% of GOP voters nationally say they think that ACORN stole the election for President Obama. We found that 52% of Republicans thought that ACORN stole the 2008 election for Obama, so this is a modest decline, but perhaps smaller than might have been expected given that ACORN doesn't exist anymore.
    I guess it is not just Romney who is deluded as to why President Obama was reelected.
    Here is the question of the day, does anyone think that wealthy people should pay a lower percentage of their income to taxes than middle class people? Don't argue tax brackets, just a simple question. Do you think someone earning 46 million dollars should pay a lower percentage of their income than say someone earning sixty thousand?

    A significant percentage of Republicans live in a self-created reality that bears only a passing resemblance to the one the rest of the world lives in.

    It's a reality where Christianity is not a religion. It's a reality where a non-existent get-out-the-vote group ACORN stole the election. It's a reality where President Obama lost the popular vote in 2012, so we should have a revolution. It's a reality where Mitt Romney was clearly a shoe-in to win the election. It's a reality where global warming and evolution are just cruel hoaxes perpetrated for nefarious reasons. It's a reality where our President is a Muslim, a Kenyan, and a socialist.

    This reality exists by virtue of believing in, trusting, and relying upon bad, false information. But they are not amenable to hearing about it, as they don't trust those who point out inconvenient facts.

    Labgrownmangoat has been feeling stabby as **** lately and is taking a few days off to rest, relax, and recharge. That means drinking, sexual triathlons, and a drug buffet. Oh, and maybe a hike or two on some godforsaken mountain. And forgetting for a while about border ****ery, Russia's ****ery, and the GOP's ****ery, as well as avoiding the cackling whores who will be joyously celebrating the possible gutting of the Affordable Care Act. -- paraphrase of Rude Pundit

    Once reality trumps the false narrative and propaganda model, people become understandably confused, bitter, angry, etc.

    Republicans were told by many pundits and others on their news station that it was going to be a "landslide" victory for Romney. They were also told that voter fraud is a rampant and serious problem in this country(ironically only from the Democrats though)

    What confuses me the most in situations like this is that instead of questioning the source, they refuse to accept that they have been duped. This goes for media, government, etc not just FOX News.

    This seems to be a classic case of blaming the other guy for your team's failure.
    Rubio and Ryan just today made it clear that they realize that narrative isn't going to work (hopefully they realize it's just completely and utterly stupid too) and kind of took subtle jabs at Romney and the whole 47% debate.

    If their job is to create they should be fired.
