For several years, surveys have shown that the majority of Teapublicans dont know that President Obama was born in the United States. The polls have also shown that a significant number of Teapublicans think Obama is a Muslim.
Now polls in Ohio and North Carolina show that approximately two-thirds of very conservative Teapublicans think former governor Mitt Romney deserves more responsibility for ordering the killing of Osama bin Laden than President Obama!
Romney ordered the killing of bin Laden? Now that would have been quite an accomplishment for someone who has no current standing in the federal government. Nevertheless, that is what the polls show.
Is it any wonder that so many Teapublicans believe their lieing leaders? Is it any wonder that poor and middle class Teapublicans continue to vote against their own self-interests? Is it any wonder that our nations politics are so fractured? How can anyone hope to negotiate and compromise with officials who represent these people?
No doubt these are the same people who think the Earth is only 6,000 years old, and that our ancestors rode dinosaurs.
Teapublicans are doing everything possible to keep Democrats and minorities from voting this election by requiring new photo IDs. Instead, maybe they should require an intelligence test for voting. If they did, we might not see another Teapublican president or Congress in a generation.
