How Liberals Argue: Democrats Voting Against Debt Ceiling Wasn't "Real"

How do you have a rational debate over a topic of critical importance with people who make arguments that do not even rise to the level of being called childish! This is just pure nonsense! How do you debate with utter absurdity! These people are a joke!

One of Saul Alinksy’s (Rules for Radicals) tactics is to deliberately talk nonsense, and spray it all around the room as if it were incense. This causes a conservative, who plans to talk in rational terms, to lose his temper when the lefty is completely impervious to facts and reason. The lefty puts on the Alfred E. Neuman “What, me worry?” grinning idiot expression. Meanwhile the conservative looks like he is lost up there on the stage.

The key = The lefty presents no opponent, so the conservative has no one to argue with. The lefty spends 5-10 seconds in preparing his presentation, but the conservative spent hours or days. This tactic is more than 40 years old. Alinsky published it in 1972, but he used it for many years before that.

You have just described Joe Biden's antics during the VP debate--perfectly!

The sad part was that it clearly showed how unserious the Democrat Duo (and entire D. Party) was in respect to governing our once-great nation. Their entire agenda is to cripple America financially and morally. They have achieved it through a dumbed-down educational system rendering public schools nothing more than babysitters, who put more emphasis on society's social mores than on historical facts and the lessons we should have learned from them. Lies, sex, drugs, violence: the end of an era--and of a country. History repeats...

Does ANYONE care?

As Guy wrote this week, liberals are arguing spending doesn't lead to deficits or more debt. During his final press conference of his first term Monday, President Obama argued that his vote against raising the debt ceiling in 2006 came at a time when things were "different," and that Republicans shouldn't be hesitating to increase the debt ceiling this time around. Yesterday on Neil Cavuto's show, Democratic Rep. Jan Schakosky argued that Democrats voting against a debt ceiling increase in 2006 wasn't "real."
