GOP Talking Points: Repeat After Me

If you spend enough time flipping around the cable news stations, you'll begin to hear the same lines from different politicians. The Daily Show sums up these repeats brilliantly. It's humorous, but irritating and one of the main reasons why people are so fed up with politics.

Here are a few Republican talking points for last night's Democratic wins:

Tonight was a vote for the status quo. We began the night with 28 GOP governorships and we concluded the evening with the same amount. The two gubernatorial races in New Jersey and Virginia are not determinate of larger trends. Each was a race unique unto itself. In these off-year races, the electorate is focused on local issues, and whether the candidates represent their values and beliefs.

Really? Is that why so-called pundits said if the initiatives in California pass, they'll pass anywhere?

I suggest that everyone go back and re-read 1984! This administration is using it as a playbook/action plan.
I just read that Michigan is attempting to give the medical community the opportunity to opt out of providing care for the homosexual community based on personal religious grounds. What next - re-introduce slavery? based on some 'religious' belief. Again - "first they came for...." really applies and we all need to get involved in putting a halt to this 'special exemption' tactic.
