Conservative Outrage

Another day, another Gainesville Times letter to the editor:

So what we have here is a president who has never been in the military, therefore no military experience; no foreign policy experience; never balanced a budget, doubtful he has ever balanced his checkbook; and has never run a corporation. Matter of fact, what has he ever done that qualifies him for the spot he is now filling?

Dude, this argument didn’t work. These facts were used before the election endlessly, and Obama won the election by 10 million votes. They were  ineffective. They didn’t persuade people.

There’s plenty to criticize Obama on, and the letter hints at some of it. But our Republican friends here in North Georgia keep trotting out worn arguments that simply don’t carry weight. It’s like they can’t understand when a talking point simply…doesn’t…work.
