Why the liberals lost and will continue to

Have you all noticed the near frothing of the mouth of those on the left since the election? Boy, I have. I've been called everything but a child of God over the last week and a half. I've been looking for something that puts the liberals argument into one article, I've found it. Below you will find that argument(s) and my thoughts on each one. It was written by leftist comedian Adam Felber, sorry, no link.

Concession Speech

[Former candidate Felber, flanked by his family and supporters, steps
up to the podium in the bright autumn sunlight. Cheers and applause
are
heard.]

My fellow Americans, the people of this nation have spoken, and spoken
with a clear voice. So I am here to offer my concession. [Boos,
groans,
rending of garments]

I concede that I overestimated the intelligence of the American
people.
Though the people disagree with the President on almost every issue,
you saw fit to vote for him. I never saw that coming. That's really
special.

And I mean "special" in the sense that we use it to describe those
kids
who ride the short school bus and find ways to injure themselves while
eating pudding with rubber spoons. That kind of special.

And the left wonders why a good amount of people can't stand them. Not only does this guy insult the intelegence of half of the country, God forbid they have minds of their own and can think for themselves, he also insults handicapped children.
I concede that I misjudged the power of hate. That's pretty powerful
stuff, and I didn't see it. So let me take a moment to congratulate the
President's strategists: Putting the gay marriage amendments on the
ballot in various swing states like Ohio... well, that was just genius.
Genius. It got people, a certain kind of people, to the polls. The
unprecedented number of folks who showed up and cited "moral values"
as their biggest issue, those people changed history.

Ha! This is a big laugh. Seems that Felber forgets that over 70% of the country, including the Democratic candidate, are against gay marriage. Even California, not in the least a conservative state, has laws banning gay marriage, but, he, of course, forgets this.
The folks who consider same sex marriage a more important issue than war, or terrorism, or the economy... Who consider tolerance-of-diversity to
be "immoral" while their own crime and divorce and domestic violence rates - DOUBLE
those of Massachussetts - are somehow just peachy.

HA! Another good laugh. Take a look at this article. Go ahead, it will only take a minute. See some hings that stick out at you? Let me help.
When "moral values" was included in poll questions, it was named more often than any other issue. But when voters were just asked to name the issue most important in their vote for president — without being given a list of answers — moral values trailed the war in Iraq and the economy, according to the Pew survey.

"The advantage of the open-ended question is it tells you what's at the top of mind for voters — what they're thinking," said Cliff Zukin, a veteran pollster and professor of public policy at Rutgers University. "Much too much has been made of the moral values answer."

Intersting let's look at some of the research. When no choices were given, moral values only got 9%, Iraq got 27% and the economy got 14%. When choices were given 27% chose moral values and 22% said Iraq. So, depending on how the question was asked, the results changed.
The Pew poll found that voters' reasons for picking "moral values" varies. Just over four in 10 of those who picked "moral values" from the list mentioned social issues like gay marriage and abortion, but others talked about qualities like religion, helping the poor, and candidates' honesty and strength of leadership.

"We did not see any indication that social conservative issues like abortion, gay rights and stem cell research were anywhere near as important as the economy and Iraq," said Andrew Kohut, director of the Pew Research Center. "'Moral values' is a phrase that's very attractive to people."

Ah but, the meme lives on.

Next,
I concede that I put too much faith in America's youth. With 8 out of
10 of you opposing the President, with your friends and classmates
dying
daily in a war you disapprove of, with your future being mortgaged to
pay for rich old peoples' tax breaks, you somehow managed to sit on
your asses and watch the Cartoon Network while aging homophobic
hillbillies
carried the day. You voted with the exact same anemic percentage that
you did in 2000. You s*uck. Seriously, y'do. [Cheers, applause] Thank
you. Thank you very much.

Yes, everyone who voted for Bush are "aging homophobic hillbillies". 50 some odd million people have no clue. Yep, you keep telling yourself that. Oh, and keep insulting the young voters, there is already a trend with the youth showing they are more conservative than their parents so, go ahead, keep pushing them over to this side.
There are some who would say that I sound bitter, that now is the time
for healing, to bring the nation together. Let me tell you a little
story. Last night, I watched the returns come in with some friends
here in Los Angeles. As the night progressed, people began to talk
half-seriously about secession, a red state / blue state split. The
reasoning was this:

We in blue states produce the vast majority of the
wealth in this country and pay the most taxes, and you in the red
states receive the majority of the money from those taxes while
complaining about 'em. We in the blue states are the only ones who've been
attacked by foreign terrorists, yet you in the red states are gung ho to fight
a war in our name.

I will have to do some research into the first part but, aren't the people on the left the ones who think that tax money should go to those who "need" them. What's your bitch then? You are getting exactly what you have asked for over the last 50 years.

As for the last statement, yes, New York was the "only" place hit by terrorists. That is, if you only count what happened on September 11. This country has been attacked with impunity for well over 20 years. The terrorist finally figured out that to get our attention they had to hit our land mass. They did it in a spectacular way. But listen very closely, moron, you are NOT the only target, you were an easy target.I live in an area with military bases all around me. I have a base for the Atlantic Fleet, a Naval Air Station, a submarine base and the largest Air National Guard base in Florida within 30 miles of me. Grow a brain.
We in the blue states produce the entertainment that
you consume so greedily each day, while you in the red states show
open disdain for us and our values. Blue state civilians are the actual
victims and targets of the war on terror, while red state civilians
are the ones standing behind us and yelling "Oh, yeah!? Bring it on!"

Yes, be proud, your industry is based on lying for a living.
More than 40% of you Bush voters still believe that Saddam Hussein had
something to do with 9/11. I'm impressed by that, truly I am. Your
sons and daughters who might die in this war know it's not true, the people
in the urban centers where al Qaeda wants to attack know it's not
true, but those of you who are at practically no risk believe this easy lie
because you can. As part of my concession speech, let me say that I
really envy that luxury. I concede that.

So? People have a habit of not paying attention. That includes yourself. You seem to forget that this wasn't just about Al-Queda, this is about a global war on terror. It has been from the begining and you seem to forget that, because it fits into your long winded diatribe that is full of shit. Do you pay attention? Did you actually listen to the President after 9/11? Of course not. It doesn't fit YOUR preconcieved notions.

The next two paragraphs are repeats of the above and then, we come to this
So that's why I'm asking for your vote in 2008, America. I'm talking
to you, you ignorant, slack-jawed yokels, you bible-thumping, inbred
drones, you redneck, racist, chest-thumping, perennially duped
grade-school grads. Vote for me, because I know better, and I truly
believe that I can help your smug, sorry asses. Vote Felber in '08!
Thank you, and may God, if he does in fact exist, bless each and every
one of you.

This is EXACTLY why liberals will continue to lose. They have no true understanding of the "heartland" of America. You are all just stupid drones, unable to think for yourselves. The funny thing in all this is, they think they are right. THEY are the only people with any TRUE understanding of what is really going on. You are just a pile of meat that should do what they want.

The above article, as I said, was written by a comedian but, you can hear the same thing from your liberal friends, liberal columnists, Dan Rather, Kos and anyone else on the left side. They truly believe you should vote for candidates that feel the exact same way as they do. Ah, well, maybe one day they will learn. I somehow doubt it.
