The point of my post was in bold.I have noticed that you and other "conservatives" here continue to communicate the message that anyone to the left of you, who you automatically deem as "liberal", believes that conservatives are stupid. At the same time, "conservatives" here are almost always the only ones calling folks stupid. I just see some hypocrisy in this, or is it irony?.Why is it that the only folks here calling anyone "dumb" or "clueless" are those on the right?
You know, the record here is very clear that on one hand you and a couple others are playing to crowd here with the "liberals think conservatives are stupid" message and then on the other hand pointing out time after time how liberals are stupid or just don't understand. I was just trying to point that out with some specific examples.
Apparently, I just don't get it again so I'll go away and you can continue to just write up examples of where "liberals/elites" think conservatives are stupid since that must make you feel better and because this apparently is such an important issue for this country.
Intelligent, uninformed, ig-norant, blind, biased? Pick your poison, because that's what these characterizations are!
We are all in one hell of a mess, and nobody has all the answers. I hope the more 'intelligent' among us can work together and find the answers.
For those who 'lost'...get over it. For those who 'won'... show a little class!
I don't have much to say. What I do know is nothing has changed for me. The damn mortgage was due and despite BO being voted in apparently I still have to pay it.
Well, I don't think I actually ever called a liberal dumb and am sure I never called anyone a dim. I believe my favorite choice of words to use as a directed insult is something like "left wing radical liberal extremist." Although I consider it an insult, I am not sure the left receives it as such. I think the left takes my directed insult as a compliment. If a directed insult is received as a compliment is it still an insult?
But then again you can bunch me with anyone you want.

In my original question I asked, why is it that the "conservatives" seem to be the ones calling people stupid around here? Not that the answer is really important to understand the irony.It just doesn’t matter to lefties. This is their playbook.
Extreme left wing radical politicians are smart, anyone that is right of center is dumb.
The answer to your question IMHO is, It depends on how stupid someone is.
Not a left wing radical liberal extremist on most all the issues but bunched as a "liberal" here just because I'm not as "right" as the clear majority regards,
Beating the dead horse regards.
As I said before, they are 2 separate issues.
I don’t care who it was calling anyone a dim, dumb or whatever. I wont get into the trap of defending them based on your assertion. That will pull me into something I had no part in. I never called anyone dumb or a dim.
My issues are clear and they are this and have been posted in this message.
The left wing has a penchant for trying to tar all republican presidential candidates as dumb and their candidate as intelligent. It has happened every election in my memory. See post # 5 above for examples.
Informed voters are informed voters. They know the issues, determine which matter to them, dismiss what doesn’t and vote accordingly. An example of that is, William Ayers, Tony Rezco, Jeremiah Wright, ACORN, etc. You can look at those issues and determine if they matter to you. They either do or they don’t. See post # 8 above.
The poll that this message is based on is something other than being dumb, it is based on being uninformed. I assert with the results of this poll and the link to WEEIs street interviews that it is true. (feel free to think they are dumb if you want) The MSM didn’t inform the public well enough to aid them in making an informd decision and were pretty much in the tank for Obama with, for some reason, a vested interest in him winning. See post # 1 and # 2 above and link below.

"Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason why so few engage in it." Henry Ford
There is all kinds of smart.
I find liberals in general are highly intelegent. Especially some on this board. But because someone is very smart doesn't mean they are right most of the time. That goes for very smart republicans too.
You can have tremendous thought processess and still have trouble tying your shoes.
You can have complicated ideas about how to make money and still run an economy into the ground.
You can have complicated idea's on how to decrease the amount of poor people and totaly cause the expodential increase in poor people.
In other words people can be so smart that they cant function productively.
Their ideas sound genious but once implimented a major catastrophy occures.
So there is all kinds of smart.
My wifes side of the family are filled with geniouses.
Genious is one thing common sense is another. Most geniouses don't use the common sense portion of the brain and most common sense people don't use or have the genious part of the brain. Its rare you find people with both.
Most geniouses think they have common sense
Most common sense people know they lack genious.
We are in the trouble we are in because of geniouses.
