Another example, frankly, is the ACA. Virtually everything in it started out as a proposal by a Republican. And when surveyed on individual parts of the ACA, most Republicans are in favor of them. But group it all together and slap Mr. Blackocrat's name on it and it is a demonic invention from the pit of Hell.
I guess I would ask you and Chino, what's your point? That there are Republicans that are uninformed on the issues? I know I wrote a novel, but look at my post in the other thread where I recount the interview with the young girl that was SO happy that Obama won, because "now everyone would have free gasoline!!!".
And while I don't tend to resort to the silly name-calling tactics, it's not like this is a new phenomenon (google "Kill Bush") and it's not like the guy in the pickup truck or the ACA opponents are entirely wrong. I will forever hold a personal grudge against Biden for parading those poor victims of Sandy Hook - my god, they looked like deer in headlights - out to pimp his new gun control law. TOTALLY ignoring that a) Connecticut (my home state; the temporary school the Sandy Hook kids are going to until their new school is built was the very school I spent 6th, 7th, and 8th in; I had my first kiss in that building) already had one of the most restrictive laws in the country, b) the law he was pimping would not, likely, have prevented the tragedy, and c) isn't likely to prevent any future tragedy.
And Hefdaddy42, I am "one of those Republicans". I would prefer not to have a law like ACA (I lean more libertarian) but I also tend to be a pragmatist in the sense that I could live with the individual sections. But I can also live with chocolate, steak, and Fritos. That doesn't mean I want all of them together in one recipe. Some of you might have conveniently forgotten, but Obama's first step - the very first step! - to getting ACA passed was to cut a back-door deal with the pharmaceutical companies, essentially guaranteeing their profit in exchange for their support against the healthcare insurance lobby (which would have already bought into a law that made sense, since much of it already existed in pieces and pockets). Since pharmaceutical costs are one of the biggest components of the spiraling health care costs (and pharmaceutical profits are some of the highest in the industry) that told me right there that despite the good intentions of some of the "individual pieces", Obama didn't give two shits about improving the healthcare of this country.
