seriously could they have used a more ironic example than the Kennedy family to try to spur up another viral nostalgic facebook "back-in-the-day-customs" vs obama hate pic?

Well yeah, The point of showing the posts is to point out a few of the more idiotic that commented on the pic. Do you find that the fact the times aren't sequential is somehow deceptive? If that is the case how do you feel about the pic?

Jr. saluting his father's coffin as it goes by draped with the American flag, Sasha & Malia taking a silly pic at some point during the inaugural parade.

the OP was a screen cap of a heavily-viewed piece of social media that very clearly reflects the sentiments - overt or passive (the latter being the most insidious, i'd argue) - of a segment of the population who can elect officials that reflect their paradigms. this alone makes it worth discussing. ignoring it would be foolish.

the real question that needs to be discussed is whether or not this line of thinking reflects a high enough percentage of voting americans to suggest that they're in any way indicative of conservative ideology and voter blocs (the southern strategy has led to the republican party inheriting these people, so i'd say there's a strong correlation.)

not sure i agree with you here (unless i'm misreading your intent.) ideological ties - liberal versus conservative - are reflected in the political arena by democrats and republicans, and while there's an obvious correlation there's also a differentiation in how they react in their structural context. ideology as an entity is more susceptible to pitting groups against one another without leeway whereas the political embodiment of those ideologies is designed to be a symbiosis (though often it is not) wherein finding middle ground is imperative.

in other words there is not necessarily a virtue in liberals finding middle ground with conservatives, but there is a clear neccesity for democrats finding middle ground with republicans.

i don't recall who originally said this but it still seems to ring true: some of the worst policy in america is preceded by the words "in a bipartisan agreement"

anyway my intent here is to say that "liberal" vs. "conservative" vs. "the middle of the two" leaves out a fugton of options. for example, both president obama and the republicans have campaigned on austerity, and much of the debate centers on just how much; meanwhile, leftists who believe that the country would see far greater benefit from actually increasing spending in a stagnant economy, raising tax rates, and perhaps even significantly cutting the budget of a military that costs about as much as the rest of the world's militaries combined, are completely shut out of the process. when both major parties have already ruled out viable options as a matter of ideology (as both the democratic party and the republican party as a whole are conservative, corporatist parties), the idea that "the middle" of the two is somehow, again, virtuous in any way, is laughable. now, it may be "imperative" in the context that poo policy is better than gridlock, but poo policy is poo policy, and i'm tired of golden mean dipshits parading around like they're somehow thinking outside the box by "acting as a liaison" between two parties that mostly differ on just how much they want to fug the poor and middle class

Why stop at this pic for the thread? These stupid pics emails were rampant before the election. Happens just before, to invoke fear, and just after, to invoke disgust, each election, on each side.

You, CWG, are just now not caring what conservatives think? Could have sworn that ship sailed long ago.

Especially since you put all conservatives in as perpetrators of this offensive post. As mentioned, the loonies on the left savaged the Palin family, her down syndrome kid included. Guess we should have been through caring about your thoughts at that point? You part of the denegration of the Palin kid?

Bottom line. Your faux rage is laughable. Show the pic and ridicule it as should be, but don't act like you are traumatized.

It should be noted that any human being who didn't enjoy the first daughters during the inauguration needs to get their head check.

All I did was see a FB friend post it, I opened it, and took a screenshot for you. It was as you see it.

In addition to what people here are saying, the fact that a guy that I highly doubt would say such nasty things just blindly forwards it to everyone he knows without a second thought says more than the actual text to me.
