In a FOX news interview with Megyn Kelly, radio host Michael Graham argued that Obama was not elected with a mandate because “…he didn’t run on an affirmative campaign.”
“He ran on the Republicans are Satan incarnate and if women vote for them, they’re going to be forced into rape camps, and when that’s your campaign, you can’t be surprised when the people you ran against don’t want to work with you and you don’t have an issue to rally people around.”
Here’s the video:
DENIAL. This is the current definition of the GOP. For years the right has been living in the bubble. Facts mean nothing, especially when they are in direct opposition to their dying ideology. Ryan, Akin, Murdock; all had an enormous impact on the outcome and they created the 18% gender gap among women.
I have reported on women’s issues and never once heard any Democrat say that a Romney administration would force women into “rape camps.” In fact, as I write it, I can’t help but giggle.
TRUTH. This is going to be the biggest hurdle for Teapublicans. They have lived and breathed a steady diet of lies for so long, it may not even be possible to come out of the coma. Not to fret, there are enough in the electorate who can differentiate between complete insanity and reality—hence the electoral outcome of this election. We are just going to have to put up with watching a dying party go down with no dignity.
