A Message To A Very Close Conservative Friend

Beneath the Spin * Eric L. Wattree



You just don't seem to get it. It doesn't matter why Obama had his educational records sealed. That's his business. Maybe he just doesn't want crazy Republicans harassing teachers and friends in his background just to try to find dirt to use for political advantage. The less information you make available to conspiracy nuts the better, because it gives them material to distract from addressing America's business.
If Republicans were as tenacious in addressing America's business as they are in trying to find dirt on Obama, this nation would be experiencing some of the most astounding success that it has ever experienced, but instead, they're acting like irate children determined to sabotage American progress. The American people are sick of it, and you're going to pay a heavy price for it in coming elections.
Americans are adults who are interested in addressing the nation's concerns, but the Republican Party is determined to play in a sandbox and engaged in spitball fights. It's a clear sign of ignorance, an inability to focus, and gross immaturity. That's why they're such grossly inept administrators and had to literally HIDE both Bush and Cheney during the last two election cycles.
That's why I'm so shocked with you, Tom. It makes me scratch my head - how can a person be so brilliant in his profession, and most other areas, yet be so clueless regarding political issues? If this was anything other than politics you'd see right through it - and I know you can. When your Conservative buds started pilling in on me, it was like a light switch went on in your head. Your military training kicked in and it was you and I against them, and you defended my position more effectively than I could. So I KNOW you know this stuff. But when it's just me and you, all of a sudden you become clueless again. What's up with that? I think I'm just the only progressive you like, so politically, you're thinking with your emotions rather than your intellect.
Answer the question and read the links below. They say it all. Tom, you don't fit in with Republicans. You have a different set of values. I know for a fact that you're not a racist, and you have much too much intelligence to be hangin' with the dummies. Get onboard, man, and start fighting for America. That's your nature.
Lower cognitive abilities predict greater prejudice through right-wing ideology.

Religious bigotry: It's not that I hate everyone who doesn't look, think, and act like me - it's just that God does.
