The right can be successfully portrayed as evil because "moderate" Republicans like Romney let them. Note how Romney had no problem attacking Bachmann and Santorum in a scorched-earth stop at nothing manner but refuses to attack Obama on Fast & Furious, Rezco, the crony capitalism (a.k.a. bribery) of Solyndra and similar corporations, etc., etc. Could we stop all this crazy gun control talk if Romeny started asking questions about the violence in Chicago? If he asked why if gun control is the answer why were there two massacres in Canada and Norway?

As the American people see that Romney has more hostility toward conservatives than he has for the leftists currently in power they are helped to come to the conclusion that conservatives are evil and dangerous.

Now I'm off to fill up a truck with close to $4 a gallon diesel. This price brought to us by Dems who are hostile toward fossil fuel - and by Republicans who accept the premise that cheap energy is evil. But don't worry I know the arguments in favor of voting for Romney because of the alternative. And it might make me think of voting for him - until I get to the pumps and fill up for $900+, and remember all the GOP "moderate" quislings who have refused to attack the environmental industry over the years.

Foggy, No one likes to vote for the lesser of two evils, But show me the election where you have one evil candidate and one perfect candidate?

For years I voted but did not get involved in campaigns, or caucuses, primaries etc. I left politics to the politicians except for my vote. Sooo. Please vote, please vote for the best alternative. and in the future get involved starting with local and make contact with the office of your congressman and senator. If you despise them still contact them and let them know how they can vote to represent you.

James Holmes is a human earthquake. We are as ill-equipped to predict the eruptions of such human beings as we are to predict the eruptions of the earth.

But that doesn't mean that nothing meaningful came out of the Aurora tragedy.

Something quite important did, though few Americans are aware of it because it has already entered the mainstream media's memory hole.

On ABC's "Good Morning America" on Friday morning, Brian Ross, chief investigative reporter for ABC News, announced to George Stephanopoulos and millions of viewers that there's "a Jim Holmes of Aurora, Colorado page on the...
