He is out to punish America for our misdeeds, to punish us for our racism, to bring us to our knees, to humble us in the dust so he can rebuild some kind of a socialist utopia on the ruins of what used to be the United States of America.
There’s that word “utopia” again. Well, we know who Oregon Republican Gary Bray has been watching, don’t we? But look, Bryan Fischer is just a part of a wider problem, that of Republicans who refuse to accept the reality of another Obama victory and a concomitant and whole-hearted denunciation of their own ideology.
It is too soon – much too soon – to expect shell-shocked Republicans to find their feet following their crushing defeat at the hands of Barack Obama in 2012. Refusing to accept our shared reality, they insist Obama’s victory does not amount to a mandate. They don’t quite deny that he won the election (though there are a few of those still clinging to electoral college pipedreams), but they refuse to admit his win was more than a “technical” win: Harry Reid’s “case of Republicans not taking yes for an answer.”
Though Dick Morris is now discredited, his views are not. As Bryan Fischer just quoted Jesus as saying, “by their fruits you shall know them.”
Morris said that Romney would win with in 2012 with a 325-electoral vote “landslide.” Obama won with 332 electoral votes. For Morris, 332 is far less than 325 because according to his math, Obama won a “squeaker.” How this math works, how 332 is a squeaker and 325 is a landslide, is one of those mysteries unique to conservatism. The point is that though Morris is “out” his math is “in”. He is far from alone. Those fascinated by litanies of conservative misery can look at a list of the congenitally obtuse at Right Wing Watch.
