A quick lesson in projection

When a person has uncomfortable thoughts or feelings, they may project these onto other people, assigning the thoughts or feelings that they need to repress to a convenient alternative target.
Projection may also happen to obliterate attributes of other people with which we are uncomfortable. We assume that they are like us, and in doing so we allow ourselves to ignore those attributes they have with which we are uncomfortable.

We all know that the President and his minions have been claiming that right leaning activists are actually all bought and paid for by the Republican party and AFP. Most of us know that this is not the case but rather just projection from Democrats who are afraid of their own constituents.

The media and the Adminsitration has been going off for a week, or longer, about these astroturf claims.

Well I think the lady doth project too much...and the evidence is below...

Emphasis mine.

As you can see this is a Progressive front group that is putting together an Astroturf campaign. By the way...$600 a week is more than my Wife makes working with disabled children. Just saying.

I have said it before but it is worth saying again...if you want to know what this Administration is doing, simply listen to what they are claiming the other side is doing.

Post Partisan MY ASS!!!

[h/t Steve Foley @ The Minority Report]

President Obama is actively inciting hate against those that disagree with him, not those who created this mess, after all the Democrats have had control of the congress since Jan 2007. Obama is up there preaching like his pal Rev. Wright...using the bully pulpit to cause division rather than unity.

He claimed to be post partisan.

He claimed to be above the fray.

But to those who were paying attention, these sort of union thug tactics are no surprise.

Remember...this is not the first time he has asked his minions to get in the faces of those who dissent with The One™.

Mel Martinez to resign early...

Just saw the report on Fox and also at RedState. No doubt Crist will appoint himself as Senator and then resign his current office as Governor of Florida.

The questions I would like answers to are...

Was this deal worked out between Martinez and Crist before hand?

If there was collusion between Crist and Martinez, were Crist's poor showings in straw poll after straw poll the catalyst for this?

Those are two very important questions which should be asked...and answered.

The good people of Florida deserve that, well actually they deserve Marco Rubio but when has the well being of Floridians ever stopped Crist from being a self absorbed political elite?
