    Do Republicans hate everyone?

    Mitt was recorded saying 47% of Americans were parasites. Last night, Sarah Palin on Fox News said she couldn't believe how 52% of voters could be so stupid as to re-elect a man to 4 more years of misery. I just answered my own question. No. They don't hate everyone. There's that 1%....... 1%!  sound familiar? I bet they worked out those numbers as not to offend their friends.

    The Republican politicians just say stuff like that for the cameras to get their voter base riled up. Republicans who are not politicians don't hate everyone They just hate black people and hate whatever they think a "liberal" is. Theirs is a radical party of religious extremists and racist nationalists.

      I'm ashamed of you! You missed one. They also hate women that think they should be allowed to vote and make their own moral decisions. OOPS! That's a big part of their election loss isn't it? They forgot women's votes count too.

    not real hate , just past entitlement of white supremacy when anything that they did was right, but time has past and the years of seeking cheap to free labor have made this country into the great melting pot of people and the old school white cling to the Republican party for the told them type of people what they like but it was all lies and not the truth has hit them in the face save the fact that they can't see that the rich is playing them like a piano to keep them from seeing the fact that they living just as hard as everyone else and paying the rich share of taxes just like everyone else until we stop them. 12 trillion of this 16 trillion dollars debt is the rich 1 to 2 % tax cut and congress borrow the money for the the working middle so-called class people to pay for it. its a money grab so people wake up and come together and stop this madness

    I'd love to hear the actual soundbite where Gov. Romney called the 47% who wouldn't care about tax cuts "parasites." It must have been edited out of the recorded quote I heard. Thank you!

      I love conflict.  Nice comment and I'm happy you took the time to read the question and comment.  It means you're thinking!  And we hubbers know that you can't please everyone.

      I was always taught that the only stupid question was one not asked. I was also taught the only thing worse than a stupid question was the person responding to it. My question was asked in irony. Your answer, Republican -like; miserable and negative.

    Do Democrats hate everyone?

    Sorry, but both are equally dumb questions.

    The Corporate Party really does love you for buying into their divisiveness.

    Divide and conquer, and they hardly have to lift a finger, because you're doing their dirty work for them. All fed by ego -- us versus them.

    America is going down and too few give a hockey puck. Sad.

    Too bad so many will wake up only after it's too late to do anything about the death of America. The Constitution is nearly gone as it is, shredded by Clinton, Bush, and Obama. Shredded by the congressmen who suck up to the Corporate Party lobbyists, and by the Supreme Court justices who think Corporations are people, too, but that they don't have to spend a day in jail for their crimes.

    No, our government thinks Corporations deserve bailouts and bonuses for their crimes.

    Both sides of the Corporate Party don't hate. They're play acting -- keeping alive the illusion of choice -- whipping their followers into a frenzy to keep them distracted.

    Well, it's working. This dumb question is proof of it.

    I think it's impossible to hate everyone.  I think they will be mad for the next four years and continue to degrade and show no support for the President.  It is unfortunate that in 2012 we are so divided.  Doesn't the Constitution start out 'We The People?' 
    I guess WE is French and people is just a term to represent a part of the whole. 
    Unfortunately, some people won't change and we're stuck with Fox News!  - NICE QUESTION

      You're right. This was sort of a John Stewart/ Colbert type question. I forget sometimes that some people have no sense of humor. Wouldn't be nice if there were no left or right when it came to American issues?

    Republicans don't hate anyone, I believe.  They're just terribly scared. They have a very evangelically-based strict guideline for themselves which they use to perfect their relationship with God.  They have bought-into a skewed logic system perpetuated by people like Joel Osteen and they have misinterpreted compassion and social justice (as those virtues have been traditionally viewed by Christians) and twisted the meaning of those words into hot button words like "entitlements" and "hand-outs".  They do not want to become "addicted" to dependence and assume that others do want to!  - an obvious egotistical point of view. They have a tough-love, strict-father view of the world, as George Lakoff, linguist at Berkeley points out, and in spite of any good intentions they may have, they've created a hostile environment in our nation because of their fears.  Quite terrified of the future, they cling to the past because to not do that would create disquiet within them.  I have dear friends who are Republicans.  They are good people who see the world totally differently than I do.  So we talk about kids and places we've been and know that's just about as deep as we can go with our friendship.

    What kind of a question is this.  Romney did not call anyone parasites.  He simply stated a fact, that 47% of americans don't pay income taxes and therefore his message of tax reform does not impact them. For the same reason a teenager doesn't care when they leave the lights on...They're not paying the bill.  He did reference the victim mentality we have in this country which is quite apparent among at least some of the population.  There are large masses of people who have every reason in the world why they can't accomplish something, and hence they never do.  I grew up in an inner city slum and was always taught not to make excuses and I am quite successful.  If people spent half the amount of time thinking about ways to create new opportunity for themsevles as they did complaining about what other people have, they'd be much more successful.

    With regard to this 1% nonsense.  They didn't race to the magic money tree.  They got there by creating new ideas and new innovations that served the consumer well enough to pay for their services.  They already pay 37% percent of all the income taxes yet only make 17% of the national income.  And if the President continues to demonize them in his second term like he did in his first, then he'll get more of the same.  Private investment will stall.  Large companies will sit on the two trillion in cash for another 4 years like they did the last 4 years, and the American working class will continue to suffer.  It's the entreprenuers that create jobs as they purse new endeavors. The more hostile you are to them, the less capital investment you'll see.
    Home Depot was created by a bunch of 1%'s that started in the 99%'s.  Where would all the people of NY and NJ be today if they had to depend on the mom and pop shops to resupply them in such a disaster ???  They'd never be able to meet the demand.  Thanks to the 1%'s that created great idea's like Home Depot and Lowes people are getting what they need in a much more timely manner then they otehrwise would.  Not to mention the 100's of thousands of jobs they create and millions in tax revenue to the treasuery they pay annually.
    The Irony is the bigger the gov't gets the more of a divide there will be between the income of the 1% and the 99%.  Someplace along the line a large number of people in this country got this strange idea that because someone else makes money, that means another has to lose money.  The lack of understanding of economics in America is astouding.

    The logic in your extended description is too flawed and biased to list all the possible problems in it...
