So true. I just don't understand how they maintain the audience......

...I voted for Dubya. Gladly, enthusiastically (I was still in the Air Force, was still a little prick). When they canceled Bill Maher after 9/11 and Ari Fleischer said "Americans need to watch what they say, watch what they do..." that was the beginning of the end. I started reading more widely than National Review and realized I'd been conned.

Ditto Obama. Massive fan of his, wouldn't hear of him turning right (indeed he won because he appealed to progressives over centrists). But when they overplayed their majority re the ACA, when Holder started cracking down on dispensaries in California, when Obama continued (and accelerated) drone strikes on civilians, when he was ramping up deportation, and going hard after whistleblowers... sorry... I was out.

Too many other examples to list. I just don't know why people hitch their wagon to a party or politician then refuse to ever think critically about them or evaluate their actions any longer.
