Just Wonderin'
Read the full article on the blog.

For the past few days, I can’t help but wonder how Romney/GOP supporters have justified their support and votes to the people in their lives.

How did you explain to your daughters that you voted for the party that wants to curtail their rights, and thinks that a pregnancy resulting from “legitimate rape” is a blessing from God?

What did you say to the disabled vet down the street about how you voted for the candidate who didn’t think them important enough to make his “laundry list” in his speeches, and the party that consistently votes against initiatives to protect their rights, fund their ongoing care, and put them back to work?

Where did you find the words to explain to your neighbor with a pre-existing condition that you supported the party that wants to repeal Obamacare – leaving them uninsured and facing the possibility of bankruptcy due to medical bills?

How did you explain to those in your community who have had their jobs outsourced or disappeared that you stood in solidarity with the candidate who profited from that outsourcing, and who destroyed businesses for his own personal gain?

What did you tell your relatives – especially those living on the social security they earned, and those presently serving in the military – to justify having voted for a candidate who dismissed them as being part of the 47% who are parasites looking for a government handout, unwilling to accept responsibility for their own lives?

How did you explain to your children, who you have taught to tell the truth at all times, that you voted for the candidate who had lied consistently throughout his campaign?

What did you tell your unemployed friends about having voted for the party that has demonstrated its willingness to fight any initiatives that would expand the jobs market, simply because it would make Obama look bad if the unemployment numbers rose rather than diminished?

How did you tell your friends who lost their jobs, their homes, their pensions and their savings under the W administration that you supported the candidate and the party that want to go back to the very policies that caused their losses in the first place?

What excuse did you offer to your hard-working, middle-class acquaintances for having voted for the candidate who refused to reveal his tax returns, and has parked his millions in offshore accounts so as to evade paying any taxes at all?

How did you explain to your community that you stood in support of a party that is clearly not interested in their welfare if they are not of the “right” race, ethnicity, or religion?

In speaking with your children’s educators, what reasoning did you use to justify voting for the party that believes teaching actual science and earth history should be replaced with Biblical accounts of how the universe was created?

What noble cause did you cite when explaining to your wife, your sister, your mother, your daughter that you supported the party that believes their health and reproductive rights are best determined by old men?

Where did you find the words to express to your best friend that you voted for the party that thinks her fourteen-year-old child should be forced by law to carry her rapist’s child?

But above all, I am particularly interested in how you explained to your Christ that despite his words and example, which you claim to revere and follow, you wholeheartedly supported the party that sees the homeless, the poor, the sick and the dying as completely unworthy of the care your Christ repeatedly admonished you to contribute to and participate in, every day of your lives.

I am an Obama supporter. I have no need for excuses or justifications as to why he and his party had my support in this election, and will continue to have that support for the next four years. I suspect that the Romney/GOP supporters will be ‘splaining their own votes for a very long time to come.

It hurts the brain
trying to reason with these people. It finally got through my thick skull that I was trying to apply logic to a scenario in which logic has no home. When I'm discussing the eons-old information contained in ice cores and my listener dismisses me because the earth is only six thousand years old, it's time to stop wasting my time. My task is to keep myself pointed in the right direction, where they go is entirely up to them. And if last Tuesday is any indication, those of us who know how to read a compass outnumber those who don't. We might not always be right, but we sure as hell don't go out of our way to be wrong.

Thanks for another awesome rant, Nance.

RE: Just Wonderin'
You've asked the right questions Nance and I'd like to see their answers too. I don't expect that to happen though because it seems like th denial is running deeper than truth with them.

My President is Barack Obama.

It boggles the mind trying to imagine how these so-called "Christians" justify cruelty towards their fellow man while they pursue the path of greed and selfishness.

Confirmed, Fox "news" makes you stupid

The ones you are noticing are more terrified than anything else. They are lashing out because they are comfortable; and to acknowledge what is happening is a threat to that comfort. Ignore them, for they are not the voices that will rise in the coming days, months and years. They are not the voices of our collected humanity. They are the old voices of fear and impotence. - Anonymous

RE: Just Wonderin'
I'd like to see the answers too Nance--but my thoughts are they don't understand the questions. After all, when you get your reality from Fox News, Limbaugh, Beck and others--these facts don't exist.

Reading the comments on the ORCA fiasco blogs, from Republicans, they still believe Nixon was brought down by the MSM--not Watergate.

Obama somehow had a mole that wrote their disasterous ORCA programming and sabatoged it. And somehow--in a magical fashion--somone also caused the pin numbers for multiple states to be switched! Obama is all powerful!!

To be fair, a few were struck with logic and questioned how this "wildly successful businessman" could possibly run a country if his campaign blew the most important day of all, and failed miserably at GOTV. I have a feeling these were Dems that found the blogs.

I was born a Truman, but you can call me Pat. Wave

"They want to give people like me a two hundred thousand dollar tax cut that’s paid for by asking thirty three seniors to each pay six thousand dollars more in health costs? That’s not right, and it’s not going to happen as long as I’m President." Barack Obama
