    Why blame it on Republicans? The guy is a nutcase or why else would put all those signs up? I just didn't like how the video ended, if those signs had been against Obama you wouldn't blame Democrats for them so why is it always Republicans fault?

     

    Proud of being a Republican

    Maybe, it's things like attacking Democrats with lies and distortions. Look, you guys can't even call our party by it's right name, it's the Democratic Party but Republicans keep calling it the Democrat party. That might seem silly to you but Tom DeLay started it as an insult. Every time we turn around you Republicans are insulting us with lies. Barack Obama is not a Muslim or a terrorist, he doesn't hang around with terrorists, and he's not going to raise taxes on anyone earning under $250,000. You asked why blame Republicans, well, that's why!

       Carolyn, you have misinterpreted the question at the end. The video did not say that this was a reaction to Republicans, but rather “Loud Mouth Right-wingers.” I will be the first to say that there are many (in fact most) in the Republican Party that are fine up standing people. If you engage them in a political discussion they will be polite and civil. They however, are not what we termed as the “Loud Mouth Right-wingers.” That type of person is the minority of that party but unfortunately the ones that are most noticed. They will rant and rave, repeating the worst things that they heard on the AM dial. They do not care who hears them and seem to enjoy upsetting others. They will use insulting names to describe Democrats or anyone they are opposed to. This type of person and only that type was what I was referring to. If you were insulted, (even though no insult was meant) I do apologize. The question still remains, if someone is provoking us, does that justify such actions?
