As was mentioned, both sides have dumbass supporters.
The event you highlighted proves only that dumb people are allowed to publicly express political support. I assumed the video of people excited about their free Obamaphones already established that.
The events in Libya are a much bigger deal, and involve matters that are much more serious.
The fact that Obama and Biden continue to repeatedly fixate on silly memes like "Binders of Women" or "Bigbird", instead of addressing the real problems of the day, is troubling to a lot of people, including many lifelong Democrats.
Which is the bigger crime here, some poorly chosen turn of phrase to describe efforts to improve workplace diversity, or ignoring requests for more security which results in the deaths of 4 Americans?
You cannot deny that liberals would be foaming at the mouth had the tables been turned and a Republican was at the wheel when that happened. Considering how nasty and vitriolic some are when attacking D-list celebrities who dare to express right-wing support on twitter, I cant imagine how venomous they would be on issues that really matter.
Why didn't you bring this up in the Obama Phone Voter thread? It was also posted well after the attack in Libya?
Only ok to denigrate Obama, but not Mitt Romney?
The double standard expressed here is pretty amazing.
